THE VIEW FROM HERE . . . [Newspaper Article] — The Sisyphus Papers — 1 December 1975
THE VIEW FROM HERE . . . Once again the pages of Sisyphus have many items in them that touch on foreign policy. But, read on, you whose main concern is domestic, because today's globe disallows such facil distinctions in actual practice. There is no such thing as a pure foreign policy issue or a domestic one in today's interrelated global village. And there is rich fare in this issue for those who want to probe the relationship between corporate power and "defense" questions. Our military spending is not simply a random monster which got out of hand. It has a calculated rationale that is very much tied into corporate profit both at home and abroad. Further, the linkage between U,S. foreign and military policy and the domestic decline of real wages, jobs, and social capital is only now coming home to some of the activist, antiwar groups who worked so hard for a change of policy in S.E. Asia. Vietnam was not an accident. It was a coherent part of a policy which has gone on and is goin...
THE WASHINGTON FRONT.... [Newspaper Article] — The Sisyphus Papers — 1 December 1975
THE WASHINGTON FRONT.... FOOD STAMPS One o ; f the : most controversial battles of this Congress is beginning to take shape in the House and Senate Agricultural Committees. The"Administration, encouraged by a significant number of members of Congress, is attempting to reduce the cost of the food stamp program, by claiming that too many participants are not in need of its benefits. The Senate Agriculture Committee's Subcommittee on Agricultural Research and General Legislation has completed a second round of hearings on food stamp proposals, and the full committee is expected to mark up its final proposal the week of Dec. 8. Floor action in the Senate is anticipated around the middle of January. The basic strategy of the Food Stamp program's Congressional supporters is to say simply: Let's eliminate all the abuses that we possible can. But we cannot tell the hungry that they must remain hungry because others have abused the program. Senator Robert Dole, a Republican conservative, has...
SWELLING U.S. ARMS SALES MAJOR STIMULUS TO WAR [Newspaper Article] — The Sisyphus Papers — 1 December 1975
SWELLING U.S. ARMS SALES MAJOR STIMULUS TO WAR Reprinted from Washington Memo, a bi-monthly publication of the Washington Office of the Mennonite Central Committee. The United States, as the most agressive peddlar of arms around the world, set a record in fiscal year 1975, ending June 30, with $9 billion worth of weapons sold to 72 countries. This was over twice the amount sold in 1973 and nine times the total dollar sales in 1970. Nearly half of the $9 billion of the exported arsenal sold in *75 went to the Middle East. The endless stream of tanks, jet fighters, missiles, etc. is sold, moreover, to opposing sides of brewing conflicts, whether in the Middle East where both Arab states and Israel are being armed for mutual destruction, or in south Asia where in the past both India and Pakistan have been equipped, and more recently in: the Mediterranean where Turkey and Cypress (Greek portion) have both used U.S. weapons to fight each other. Frequently not understood is the fact that ...
MULTINATIONAL CORPORATION: FRIEND OR FOE? [Newspaper Article] — The Sisyphus Papers — 1 December 1975
MULTINATIONAL CORPORATION: FRIEND OR FOE? by James Jennings Reprinted from: NEW CATHOLIC WORLD Sept./ Oct. 1975 When James Roche, former head of GM, said that some critics of multinational corporations want to "destroy free enterprise as we know it,"he added that he wouldn't go so far as to say there is a conspiracy to undermine U.S. business. Conspiracy or not, one critic, Pope Paul VI, speaks out of a tradition of great wariness about the free enterprise system and its most prominent"offspring, the multinational corporation (MNC). In 1971, Pope Paul warned that multinationals had power to "conduct autonomous strategies which are largely independent of the national political powers and are not subject to control from the point of the common g00d... These private organizations can lead to a new and abusive form of economic domination . . . condemned by Pius XI." In his 1931 encyclical, "Quadragesimo Anno," Pius XI had depicted the free enterprise system as a violent struggle between...
DOES BUSINESS NEED TAX CUTS? [Newspaper Article] — The Sisyphus Papers — 1 December 1975
DOES BUSINESS NEED TAX CUTS? The following comment by Bruce Morton was broadcast on the "CBS Morning News"on October 8. We print it here because it bears on issues this journal has taken up in recent months. (c) 1975 CBS Inc. All Rights Reserved. Most of President Ford's proposed tax cut would goto individuals, but some - about $7 billion worth - would goto business, Mr. Ford would keep the investment tax credit at its present 10 percent level, and he would lower the corporate tax rate two percent, from 48 to 46 percent. But Charles Vanik, an Ohio Democrat on the tax-writing Ways and Means Committee, says a lot of the big companies don't pay anything like that in taxes anyway. This is the fourth year in which Vanik has issued a study of what taxes corporations do pay. This year's shows that the 142 companies surveyed paid an average Federal income tax of 22.6 percent, less than half the nominal rate. The 142 companies, in fact, paid more taxes to foreign governments - $14.4 billion ...
NEITHER COP NOR HERMIT [Newspaper Article] — The Sisyphus Papers — 1 December 1975
NEITHER COP NOR HERMIT by Sanford Gottlieb Executive Director, SANE Early in 1975 top Administration officials brandished the threat of military intervention if faced with another Arab oil embargo. Little protest followed. When Saigon fell, a panicky Administration held out a phony choice of foreign policy roles for the post-Vietnam era —global policeman or hermit. Even before the jingoist upsurge during the Mayaguez incident, several liberal Democratic Congressmen called on the Executive Branch to maintain all our foreign commitments. These events may much about the roadblocks to constructing a new American foreign policy. Why has the political opposition been so silent? Basically, because Americans have been conditioned by nearly three decades of cold-war assumptions, older Americans most of all. Even as the public has begun to drift away from the old psychological moorings, influential leaders of Congress and the Executive Branch still carry the same obsolete pictures in their he...

THEOLOGICAL REFLECTIONS ON VIETNAM [Newspaper Article] — The Sisyphus Papers — 1 December 1975
THEOLOGICAL REFLECTIONS ON VIETNAM by Tissa Balasuriya The Churoh's ideological orientation wae always to the right The end of- the war in Vietnam and the complete withdrawal of U.S. forces from Cambodia and Vietnam along with the establishment of the PRG in Saigon and the Khmer Rouge in Phnom Penh has completely altered the position of the Church in these countries. Up to the final stages of the war a large section of Catholics including the leadership was in favor of the now-defeated governments. In fact the Church establishment was very much dependent on foreign personnel and funds. Its ideological orientation, too, was right-wing. The Church in Indochina has not been adequately critical of the evils of western colonialism and neo-colonialism. it has had a pronounced fear of Communism. The influx of 700,000 to 800,000 refugees from the North after the French were defeated in Dien Bien Phu, and Ho Chi Minh had established the independent regime of North Vietnam, made the Church of...
Press Statement by jim Phillips, S.J. RE; United Farm Workers Boston, Oct. 8, 1975 [Newspaper Article] — The Sisyphus Papers — 1 December 1975
Press Statement by jim Phillips, S.J. RE; United Farm Workers Boston, Oct. 8, 1975 I have for some years been interested in and concerned about the conditions of farmworkers in the United States, a concern which has come out of various personal experiences. I went to California with a group of clergy observers because of this interest and concern, since I had been hearing and reading allegations of unjust, illegal practices in the administration of the new California Agricultural Labor Relations Act. Like many people I had hoped and expected that the act would be a solution to many of the problems, unrest, and injustice in agricultural labor relations in California and an example for the rest of the nation. I spent 5 days in the Salinas Valley. I personally witnessed several elections held under the Farm Labor Law, saw several farmworkers' meetings, and the daily activities of union organizers. I talked with and listened to the statement? of other religious observers who had come fr...
The Pentagon's New Plan Mine Shafts Will Be Nuclear Shelters [Newspaper Article] — The Sisyphus Papers — 1 December 1975
The Pentagon's New Plan Mine Shafts Will Be Nuclear Shelters by Phil Stanford The Ford Administration has been telling us in word and deed that it is prepared to fight "limited" nuclear wars in a variety of situations. Defense Secretary James Schlesinger has testified before the Senate Arms Control Subcommittee that a nuclear war against the USSR could be kept "limited" by destroying only military bases and maintaining communications with Soviet leaders. We don't believe there can be a "limited" nuclear war. A single H-bomb of today, dwarfing the atomic bombs that destroyed Hiroshima and Nagasaki, can wipe out a major city. Once H-bombs start dropping, we expect the resulting escalation togo all-out on both sides. Since the U.S. had 8,500 H-bombs and the USSR had 2,800 by mid-1975, "all-out" would mean death to millions by blast, fire, and fallout. But the Ford Administration which has cut back government programs to help the elderly, the poor, school children, and those who need ho...
