THE SIN OF UNCONSCIOUSNESS [Newspaper Article] — The Sisyphus Papers — 1 June 1976

THE SIN OF UNCONSCIOUSNESS by Richard Lundstrom Richard Lundstrom is a Catholic writer whose wife and children are Lakota. For several years he has taught at Jesuit schools in the Mid-West. This article was originally published in Akwesasne Notes 3 Winter y 1975. It is reprinted here in the hope that it will help us reflect on our present alliances with powers which continue to oppress. Are we still in some ways s "unconscious"? The Pontifical Commission of Justice and Peace (of the Roman Catholic Church) has recently issued a paper entitled, "The Church and Human Rights". It admits that the Catholic Church has not always properly promoted and defended human rights. While affirming the basic truth of its traditional dogmas and the rectitude of its current moral stance, the paper admits that in the matter of justice, the Church has erred or sinned. The Vatican has prudently excluded the paper from any of its traditional papal categories it is neither solemn definition, nor encyclical...

The B-1: A Long Look Before Buying [Newspaper Article] — The Sisyphus Papers — 1 June 1976

The B-1: A Long Look Before Buying The Washington Post McGeorge Bundy Sometime this month the Senate .will debate a defense bill that contains a billion-dollar authorization for the actual procurement of the B-l bomber. This premature and unnecessary proposal, heavily pressed by the Air Force and by Rockwell International, should be deferred until there can be a thorough review outside the pressures created by an election year. There is no danger in such a delay, and there could be great advantage. There is no danger in delay because there is clear agreement that the B-52 strategic system can be relied on with confidence for at least a decade to come. The B-52 has proved to be one of our most durable and improvable aircraft. It is not any present need but an intense desire to get the matter settled their way that is moving the military and industrial advocates of the 81. But precisely when there is that sort of pressure for a decision not yet needed, the Senate should be wary. The b...

INTEŔILIGIOUS TASKFORCE ON U.S. FOOD POLICY [Newspaper Article] — The Sisyphus Papers — 1 June 1976

INTEŔILIGIOUS TASKFORCE ON U.S. FOOD POLICY 110 MARYLAND AVENUE, N.E., WASHINGTON, D.C. 20002 202/543-2800 INFORMATION ABOUT THE INTERRELIGIOUS TASKFORCE The Interreligious Taskforce on US Food Policy is a team of Wash-ington-based professional staff of over twenty Protestant, Roman Catholic, and Jewish national agencies, research centers, and networks, who work together to facilitate the witness of the American religious community for a responsible US food policy.

SEE, HEAR, SEND FOR . . . On energy and its productions, the following items are recommended by the Center for Science in the Public Interest: Nuclear Power: The Fifth Horseman by Denis Hayes is a new review of the multitude of moral and philosophical as well as technical issues that caused commercial nuclear development to slow dramatically in much of the industrialized world and dimmed its prospects in developing countries. Among the issues addressed are the nuclear fuel cycle, nuclear economics, uranium supplies, safety, environmental impacts, weapons proliferation, terrorism, and restrictions on civil liberties. "The most important decision to be made is political and will be made on the basis of what kind of world people want to live in. As increasing numbers of people and countries begin independently and actively to oppose nuclear power, the world may follow."

THE VIEW FROM HERE . . . [Newspaper Article] — The Sisyphus Papers — 1 July 1976

THE VIEW FROM HERE . . . This July 4th, the "Peoples' Bicentennial Commission" sponsored an alternative Bicentennial celebration here in Washington. Early in the morning, several thousand people attended an hour long prayer service at the Jefferson Memorial, then marched to the mall in front of the capital, picking up marchers along the route, and attracting thousands more for a rally which lasted the rest of the morning and rail afternoon. It was difficult to determine how many people participated in the "peoples' birthday party," but despite the usual low estimates of the news media, the total number to participate at some time during the day must have exceeded 25,000. The point is, that the reason it was so difficult to get an accurate count was that everyone felt free to drift in and out of the "protest" celebration. There was no one issue which provided cohesion. There was no "climax" to the celebration in terms of a key event or a key personality. There was no specific "enemy"...

THE WASHINGTON FRONT [Newspaper Article] — The Sisyphus Papers — 1 July 1976

THE WASHINGTON FRONT Congress is presently in recess (July 3-19) for the Democratic Convention. A second two-week recess will be held for the Republican convention, August 11-23. As a result, there are only about 45 more days left for the 94th Congress to complete action on the legislation which has been proposed during the past two years. Whatever legislation is not completed by October 2, 1976 will automatically die and have to be re-introduced in the 95th Congress. Consequently, there is a great deal of legislative activity, all tentatively scheduled for the period between July 20 and August 10. At the same time, this situation means that this period is an important time for citizen pressure. Write your senators and representative urging action on the legislation mentioned below. Write a "letter to the editor" of your local papers advocating more public discussion of these issues by political candidates. Call your representative's local office and make an appointment with your re...

The Great Foreign Policy Debate We Ought To Be Having [Newspaper Article] — The Sisyphus Papers — 1 July 1976

The Great Foreign Policy Debate We Ought To Be Having by Richard J. Barnet ("The great Foreign Policy Debate We Ought to be Having" originally appeared in The New Republic magazine, January 17, 1976. The following excerpts are taken from a reprint from the Campaign for a Democratic Foreign Policy (cf: See 3 Hear 3 Send for.,, section for further information). We thank both The New Republic and Campaign for a Democratic Foreign Policy for allowing us to reprint this excellent introduction to the discussion of national priorities.) One year after the worst defeat in American history, the great debate on what went wrong in Indochina has yet to happen. Like the "bloodbath" in Vietnam, the "orgy of recrimination" in America has turned out to be official hyperbole. Instead of the "wave of McCarthyism" so widely predicted by administration officials, there is a bipartisan silence. Vietnam is "behind us," President Ford proclaims, and no one wants to look back. In most countries a 20-year w...

STATEMENT OF THE HOLY SEE ON DISARMAMENT [Newspaper Article] — The Sisyphus Papers — 1 July 1976

STATEMENT OF THE HOLY SEE ON DISARMAMENT (On May 7 s 1976, the United Nations published a document entitled "Strengthening of the Role of the United Nations in the Field of Disarmament. " The Vatican was one of fifteen-nations to make formal recommendations to the United Nations on this topic in response to a request of Secretary General Kurt Waldheim. The excerpts of the Vatican statement are included here as summary and re-affirmation of the opposition of the Holy See to the arms race.) (30 April 1976) The armaments race is to be condemned unreservedly. By virtue of the nature of modern weapons and the situation prevailing on our planet, even when motivated by a concern for legitimate defense, the armaments race is in fact: (1) A danger, in terms of the possible total or partial use of these weapons or the threat thereof, with deterrence, carried to the point of blackmail, accepted as the norm in relations with other nations. (2) An injustice. For it constitutes: (a) A violation o...

The Social Responsibility of the Christian [Newspaper Article] — The Sisyphus Papers — 1 July 1976

The Social Responsibility of the Christian by Richard A. McCormick, S.J. The preceding statement on disarmament is in no way unusual in the recent history of Vatican statements. Howeverj this statement, as well as the Pope's address to the U.N. in January continue to receive almost no publicity. This brief article by Richard A. McCormick > S.J. > gives a few reflections on the reasons behind the ignoring of the Church's "social teachings" and suggests some attitudes that we must foster if we hope to change the impact of such documents.) A hundred years of magnificent papal documents on the social apostolate continue to fall upon deaf ears. Of course there have been certain socially concerned Christians, but have these manifestoes of social justice ever penetrated the consciousness of rank and file believers? Such prophetic proclamations mean very little unless each individual hears them with "a lively awareness of personal responsibility and (responds) by effec...

NATIONAL PRIORITIES AND TAXATION [Newspaper Article] — The Sisyphus Papers — 1 July 1976

NATIONAL PRIORITIES AND TAXATION [lt is obvious that any discussion of "national priorities" will also demand an examination of the whole process of taxation. In facttaxation is one of the few areas in which the question of priorities can be raised in a practical way and taken out of the realm of theory and ideology. The following three artzcles raise the questions: 1. How are priorities reflected in the way taxes are spent? (Data taken from leaflet of "SANE" 318 Massachusetts Ave., N.E., Washington s DC 20002) 2. Who pays the taxes that subsidize the armaments industry? (Data is taken from the "Liberation News Service" article which appeared in the New York Guardian s December 31, 1975) 3. WJiat is being done to reform the taxation process? (Data is taken from leaflet of Thomas Reese y S.J tJ Legislative Director of "Taxation with Representation" Suite #2O1 3 732 Seventeenth Street 3 N.W., Washington, D.C. 20006)] Where Do Your Taxes Go? You work hard for your money. But much of yo...

EMPLOYMENT: MYTH / REALITY [Newspaper Article] — The Sisyphus Papers — 1 July 1976

EMPLOYMENT: MYTH / REALITY (by Sheila Collins) (Any discussion of national priorities must also consider the problem of unemployment. The need to "create jobs" is frequently invoked as a rationale for expanded military spending. At the same time 3 unemployment reduces the tax base and costs tax dollars in terms of unemployment benefits 3 welfare payments 3 food stamps 3 and other forms of subsidies. Seldom discussed—but just as real in terms of both tax expenses and human suffering—are the costs of crime 3 police protection 3 prosecution and detention, or the incidents of suicide 3 alcoholism and drug addiction. The rate of each of these problems increases in direct proportion to the rate of unemployment. Despite the growing evidence which supports these correlations 3 there is little support for "full employment" legislation. Sheila Collins discusses some of the obstacles to serious discussion of full employment in this article 3 originally printed by the United Methodist Church Bo...

HUNGER [Newspaper Article] — The Sisyphus Papers — 1 July 1976

HUNGER by Larry Minear No. 5 JUNE 1976 WHATEVER HAPPENED TO THE WORLD FOOD CRISIS? The World Food Conference, which met in Rome a year and a half ago, stands as the high-water mark in international awareness of the world food crisis. It was a global conscious-ness-raising event, set against a backdrop of three years of poor harvests and given fresh urgency by widespread starvation in Southern Asia and West Africa even as the Conference convened. News media throughout the world, having already focused attention on the agonies of individual countries and regions, gave top billing to the international community's attempt to confront hunger in its global dimensions and to take concerted action against it. Out of the Conference emerged a new level of political will. Nations agreed on specific steps to give concrete meaning to their affirmation that "Every man, woman and child has the inalienable right to be free from hunger and malnutrition in order to develop fully and maintain their ph...

THE VIEW FROM HERE [Newspaper Article] — The Sisyphus Papers — 1 August 1976

THE VIEW FROM HERE The Sisyphus Papers for this month departs from the usual format. Rather than reprinting articles concerned with particular issues or perspectives, this entire edition is devoted to the "nuts and bolts" of political action. Hopefully, it will serve as a background piece and an incentive for action. It attempts to pull together in one place the experiences of many groups which are actively working for social change here in the Washington area. It does not attempt to be substitute for the information regularly mailed by those groups on needed legislative action. There is simply no substitute for accurate, clear, and up-to-date information when it comes to political action. Such information especially on international issues —is simply not available through major U.S. newspapers and magazines, and is often difficult to sort out from the rhetoric of less conventional publications. For that reason, a list of resources available from Washington-based groups is once more...
