Decades of post 9/11 wars have failed us

The North Carolina Green Party remembers the tragedy of 9/11/2001 and the subsequent two decades of endless wars in the following editorial by member and veteran Matthew Hoh. This has been edited from the original publication. Many have seen a video this week of a young Marine in Kabul tenderly giving water to an Afghan child. It makes me think of what might have been these last 20 years. In contrast with that Marine's act of compassion with the institutional actions of violence, greed and self-interest that, so far, have defined the American 21st century. What if rather than revenge, profit, and political opportunism, we as a nation had chosen restraint, wisdom, and compassion? While many Americans can honestly say the terror attacks of 9/11 took them by surprise, it is hard to argue they were without cause. Continue reading

The False Promise of Carbon Capture, Public Power, and the Green New Deal

Congressmember Tonko is ignoring this fact and continues to operate at a gradual pace. Continue reading
