A plea for peace, eh? Hmmm...
Apologize for the behaviour of the "US criminal govt.", or however you phrased that...?
So, are you going to apologize to the Tibetans, on behalf of the Chinese govt. next? Or to the Muslims in Eastern China being oppressed by the oh so merciful Chinese? Or the folks under house arrest in China for daring to dream of freedom from an oppressive govt. You do remember Tiananmen Square, don't you?
To call your viewpoint just slightly one sided would, of course, be an understatement.

I think you need monetary oversight, but it has to be in the hands of people looking out for the national interest, not profiteers looking out for the interests of a monied oligarchy. I'm not really equipped to argue this point in detail though. I think Catherine Austen Fitts is working out strategies for small communities to avoid the pitfalls of dealing with the big banks and of building local economic strength.
The real point is that Americans have to become more like their ancestors. More self sufficient and intellectually alert. More energetically skeptical of hucksters and smooth talking greaseballs in politics.
