NUCLEAR PROLIFERATION [Newspaper Article] — The Sisyphus Papers — 1 December 1976

NUCLEAR PROLIFERATION [The following is an article reprinted from John J. Berger's NUCLEAR POI-/ER: The Unviable Option. NUCLEAR POWER was printed by Rarrparts Press in 1976.] As nuclear industry expands, it increases the risks of nuclear war by actively promoting the sales of commercial nuclear technology abroad to countries that are not now nuclear powers. Reactors sold for civilian power generation or research produce plutonium just like military reactors. Once this plutonium is recovered in a plutonium reprocessing facility, it can be used in an atomic bomb. Many of the U.S. nuclear industry's customers happen to be foreign nations that want nuclear weapons. In some cases, these countries are not even signatories to the Nuclear Non-proliferation Treaty; the treaty is merely a voluntary agreement with no enforcement provision that pledges countries to abstain from acquiring nuclear weapons. Selling power plants overseas with the ineffectual safeguards against nuclear proliferatio...

THE TRIPWIRE SCENARIO [Newspaper Article] — The Sisyphus Papers — 1 December 1976

THE TRIPWIRE SCENARIO by; Edward L. King Reprinted: Saturday Review* April 17, 1976 Can a President get us into war without consulting Congress or the people? The answer is, yes, he can through his control over the disposition of American forces abroad. By deploying American troops in provocative "forward" positions, the President can invite the tripwire sequence a ground-war response to a misstep by friendly forces or an unfriendly intrusion, followed quickly by a tactical and strategic nuclear-weapons escalation, ordered at the President's discretion. But is all this constitutional? Hot entirely: no less a constitutional authority than Sen. Sam Ervin has said, "The Congress has the power and the responsibility to govern the international deployment of American forces under the provision of Section 8 of Article I of the Constitution.," This section confers upon Congress the power "to make rules for the government and'regulation of the land and naval forces." It is Senator Ervin's u...

Nuclear Game Plans at the Pentagon [Newspaper Article] — The Sisyphus Papers — 1 December 1976

Nuclear Game Plans at the Pentagon By: Peter J. Ognibene Reprinted: Saturday Review April 17 3 1976 Since the nuclear age began with its artificial dawn above Hiroshima 30 years ago mankind has gradually become inured to the existence of thermonuclear weapons. Any politician who would now speak, as President Kennedy once did, about "the nuclear sword of Damocles" poised above our collective head would be dismissed out of hand as an anachronism. The fear of nuclear wars once so great, has steadily receded since Hiroshima and the end of the Cold War. Paradoxically, while this fear has been diminishing, the United States and the Soviet Union have been increasing their capacity to obliterate one another. If the two superpowers were locked in deadly confrontation, public concern about the likelihood of nuclear war would no doubt be great. But because that prospect has become, so remote as to be unthinkable, that fear has remained quiescent. Mutual deterrence is largely responsible for th...

NUCLEAR AGE . . . [Newspaper Article] — The Sisyphus Papers — 1 December 1976

NUCLEAR AGE . . . by Sidney Lens Reprinted by permission of: V NATIONAL CATHOLIC REPORTER PO Box 281, Kansas City, MO 64141 WHEN JOHN F. Kennedy was assassinated in November 1963, the world stood still for a few days in quiet rumination. Radio and television, recognizing how indecent it would be to promote nail polish or soapflakes while reporting on the great tragedy, cut out advertising from the airways, and anchormen dispensed with the verbal corn that usually degrades their news. It was a solemn occasion, and everyone catered to that solemnity. Having just completed a new book on the nuclear arms race, I fully expect, as I pick up the morning paper or tune in Hughes Rudd, a similar solemnity and a similar preoccupation with what is far and away the most severe crisis since the emergence of homo sapiens _, the nuclear arms race. I expect to hear a long recital of plans to internationalize the atom, a series of warnings by philosophers and scientists (even politicians) about the w...

The Challenge For the Church [Newspaper Article] — The Sisyphus Papers — 1 December 1976

The Challenge For the Church The power of nuclear destruction is symbolic of the end of an ideology that sees technology as the beacon leading to greater huaanization of the human race. It is also indicative of the imperative facing the Body of Christ to create a new consciousness within which people can discover solace from the Angst of possible collective destruction and new direction from the midst of decay. The magnitude of both the crisis of our day as well as the potential for revolutionary movement is brought out clearly in Hans Kung's new book On Being A Christian in which, quoting first from Arthur Toffler's Future Shock, he delineates the dimensions of the present moment in human tim^: 'lt has been observed that if the last 50,000 years of man'a existence were divided into lifetimes of approximately 62 years each, there have been about 800 such lifetimes. Of these 800, fully 650 were spent in caves. Only during the last 70 lifetimes has it been possible to communicate effe...

THE VIEW FROM HERE . . . [Newspaper Article] — The Sisyphus Papers — 1 January 1977

THE VIEW FROM HERE . . . justice issue which is gaining momentum in this decade is HUMAN RIGHTS. Of the many chronic human rights violations, the most immediate and severe is the right to adequate food. Consequently, the National Jesuit Office of Social Ministries, as well as the various province offices of Social Ministry, have designated hunger as oui priority of all human rights issues. Estimates of death annually due to hunger range as high as 10 million worldwide, with approximately 460 million people suffering from acute malnutrition. The answer to this problem is not simple and cannot be cured by either increased awareness on the part of the American people or by one specific piect of legislation passed by Congress. However, the single most effective way of combating world hunger is through a radical change in U.S. Food Policy proceedures, since the U.S. is the largest grain exporting nation in the world and U.S. technology and corporate policies greatly influence overseas pr...

TEE WASHINGTON FRONT [Newspaper Article] — The Sisyphus Papers — 1 January 1977

TEE WASHINGTON FRONT The Carter Administration has presented us with many hopeful signs in our effort' for human rights. Carter, during the campaign, indicated his deep concern over human rights 1 violations in nations receiving U.S. support. Too often the words of politicians are not translated into action once elected. However, several Carter cabinet appointments give substanee to his promises. The appointment of Cyrus Vance for Secretary of State could be a departure from the Kissinger policy of support for military regimes. During the Senate confirmation hearings Vance reiterated his concern for human rights violations in many parts of the world. The most hopeful of all Carter appointees is Secretary of Agriculture, Bob Bergland of Minnesota. Bergland, as a congressman on the Agricultural Committee, consistently supported legislation for grain reserves, consumer positions, and food exports going to the neediest countries without political considerations. While these appointments...

A SITUATION REPORT ON WORLD HUNGER: OCTOBER, 1976 [Newspaper Article] — The Sisyphus Papers — 1 January 1977

A SITUATION REPORT ON WORLD HUNGER: OCTOBER, 1976 Larry Minear, Consultant on World Hunger Lutheran World Relief and Church World Service Address as prepared for delivery to the American Lutheran Churoh's Biennial Convention, WashingtonD.C.j October 7 y 1976. The world today, after dark and stormy years earlier in the decade, is enjoying its second consecutive year of good and in some cases record crops. The series of stormy years which etched a highway of hunger around the globe—from the Sahel through the Sudan to Ethiopia, across Southern Asia, and onto Latin America and the Caribbean has been interrupted. The grim year 1974, when the food crisis reached alarming proportions and governments plotted joint action at the World Food Conference-*-and your own Hunger Taskforce was created—has been followed by 1975, when world food production increased by more than 5%, and now by 1976, when a 6% increase is expected. True, Eastern Europe and Russia did not share the sunlight in 1975, and...

AGRIBUSINESS AND THE FOOD CRISES [Newspaper Article] — The Sisyphus Papers — 1 January 1977

AGRIBUSINESS AND THE FOOD CRISES by Mary Harvey The business of producing, processing, marketing, and retailing agricultural products has become an incredibly profitable venture ($l5O billion a year), involving many of America's largest corporations. National corporations and conglomerates responsible for the integration and modernization of the food industry from field to marketplace are powerful economic forces in today's food economy. At the rate $ resources are being invested in agriculture, some business analysts predict that by the year 2000 only 80 corporations will account for 90% of world industrial production and services related to food. The term "agribusiness" refers to and includes any of the following: corporations engaged in the cultivation of land for the raising and production of crops and livestock; corporations that finance agricultural enterprises or are engaged in the manufacturing, transporting, wholesaling and distribution of farm machinery, fertilizers, pesti...

MONEY FOR DEL MONTE GROWS ON BANANA TREES [Newspaper Article] — The Sisyphus Papers — 1 January 1977

MONEY FOR DEL MONTE GROWS ON BANANA TREES by Stephen Kinzer Pacific News Service.,. Bananera, Guatemala FROM: GUARDIAN, Nov. 24, '76 At first this village seems like a thousand others in Central America, with its muddy, unpaved streets, its few ramshackle stores, its modest Catholic church and its barefoot children. But this town is different. * -, What immediately strikes a visitor is the railroad track that runs down the town's only real thoroughfare. In this part of the world, railroads are not built to serve passengers, they serve industry. And here industry means agriculture. The tracks lead to the edge of town, where they pass a high cement wall. Behin that wall is what this town is all about: the headquarters of the 30,000-acre Del Monte banana plantation, the single producer of the 525 million pounds of bananas exported each year by this Tennessee-sized nation. Del Monte purchased the property from the United Fruit Co. in 1972, after American courts forced United Fruit to en...

WHEN MORE FOOD Means MORE HUNGER [Newspaper Article] — The Sisyphus Papers — 1 January 1977

WHEN MORE FOOD Means MORE HUNGER by Frances Moore Lappe and Joseph Collins Asking the right question is often more difficult than coming up with the right answer. Hunger is continually defined f:>r us as a-problem of inadequate production. If people are hungry, there must not be enough food. For at least 30 years the central question of the "War on Hunger" has therefore been: How can more food be produced? Thus we are treated almost daily to the"news release" approach to hunger. We learn of one new breakthrough after another protein from petroluum, harvests of kelp, extracts from alfalfa all to expand the food supply. Even the message of Diet for a Small Planet gets narrowed down to "eating one less hamburger a week" in order to increase the food supply for the hungry. For many, the production approach is working. Today more food is, in fact, being produced. The Green Revolution now adds an estimated 20 million tons annually to the grain larders of Asia. In Mexico wheat y...

THE FOOD CRISIS AND THE CHURCH [Newspaper Article] — The Sisyphus Papers — 1 January 1977

THE FOOD CRISIS AND THE CHURCH By J. Bryan Hehir My comments are based on the assumption that there is a global food crisis and that it will be with us for some time. In discussing it here my scope is quite limited. I wish to focus on the unique relationship which the United States has to the global problem and the consequent special responsibility which the Christian community in the United States has for"the problem. - r . The presentation will involve three steps: first, an analysis of the factual dimansions of the food crisis and the basic moral issues it poses; second, a description of why and how the United States bears a unique responsibility for the food question; third, a proposal regarding the potential of the Church in the United States to address the question of global and domestic hunger.

MEMORANDUM 99 BRATTLE ST TO: SISYPHUS Subscribers CAMBRIDGE R^E MASS. 02138 FROM: Wm. J. Davis, S.jT RE; Enclosures The format of the SISYPHUS PAPERS has always been flexible; now it is being bent to its limit. This is your February issue. The two documents contained herein are on issues, or clusters of issues, you will definitely want to be informed on. First of all, there is the piece on Human Rights, coming out of the Coalition for a New Foreign and Military Policy. This "Action Guide" is one more illustration of how effectively the Coalition has shifted from its "End the War" efforts to its new and wider priorities. The term "human rights" was hardly in the American vocabulary a few years ago. And yet it has become almost a household word. We are encouraged by the emphasis the Carter administration is giving this subject and feel very good that the religious community in Washington may have played a significant role in bringing this issue to the fore. We will soon have a special...

THE VIEW FROM HERE. . . [Newspaper Article] — The Sisyphus Papers — 1 March 1977

THE VIEW FROM HERE. . . While the Jesuit Office of Social Ministry has, for a number of years, been campaigning to halt the increasing incidence of Human Rights violations around the world, it has only recently become fashionable. The Nixon-Ford administrations in most cases increased military and economic aid to nations whose human rights violations became legend. Aside from the national offices of many religious groups, there were few protests from influential sources to ctiticize the Kissinger State Department for supporting and aiding the most flagrant violaters of human rights. Since Jimmy Carter adopted the Human Rights issue during the presidential campaign, the issue has become very chic among liberals and radic-libs. Somewhat surprisingly, Carter's position on human rights was not merely campaign rhetoric, but apparently a growing cornerstone of what appears to be an emerging Carter foreign policy. Within days of Carter's election, the military Junta of Chile released hundr...
