The Israel Lobby and U.S. Foreign Policy
by John Mearsheimer and Stephen Walt.
London Review of Books, 23 March 2006.
“... saying that Israel and the United States are united by a shared terrorist threat has the causal relationship backwards: rather, the United States has a terrorism problem in good part because it is so closely allied with Israel, not the other way around.”
“... the mere existence of the Lobby suggests that unconditional support for Israel is not in the American national interest. If it was, one would not need an organized special interest group to bring it about. But because Israel is a strategic and moral liability, it takes relentless political pressure to keep U.S. support intact.”

There are reasonable arguments against organ transplantation (e.g. the recipient will be on debilitating anti-rejections drugs for the rest of his life) but the following is not among them (paraphrasing): “The thousands of his dollars a man would spend to prolong his life can be taken by the State and used to feed the starving.” That, too, is an act of cannibalism.

Some interesting thoughts by Tom Mullen. The Declaration of Independence was the greatest document in human history. As for the Constitution (pre-Bill of Rights), one has to wonder about some of its authors’ motivation. As Bill Kauffman writes elsewhere: “Our decline predates the Bushes, the Clintons, even the Kennedys. Trace it, if you like, back to the overthrow of the gentle Articles of Confederation and the triumph of Hamilton, Madison, and James Wilson over Patrick Henry, Luther Martin, and Melancton Smith in 1787-88.”

The Energy Non-Crisis
by Lindsay Williams. (Originally The Key to the Energy Crisis.) At a Ford Hall Forum lecture question period in 1976, when oil prices were record high, Ayn Rand said “I don’t believe there is an energy crisis.” This book presents evidence that the oil crisis of the 1970’s was manufactured by elements within the government. There is vastly more oil under Alaska’s North Slope than all of Saudi Arabia.
The Oil Reserve Fallacy
by Prof. Robert Kovarik. (archive.org)
“Proven reserves are not a measure of future supply.”
“... the Middle East does not have two thirds of the world’s oil reserves.”
The two thirds estimate refers “to a narrow category of ‘proven’ oil reserves, not to ‘every ... barrel of oil in the world’ ... .”
“According to a US Geological Survey report quietly published in 2000, there is more oil outside the Middle East than inside the region.” Saudi Arabia, to take one country, “may have one quarter of the world’s identified oil reserves ..., but it has only about 16 percent of all ultimately recoverable reserves ... .”

Myth: The World is Running Out of Oil – Peak Oil (video)
Interview with author of The Bottomless Well, Peter Huber.
Abiotic Oil ?
I was brought up on the idea that oil came from prehistoric plants, “fossil fuel” you know, and that therefore the amount of oil underneath the earth is necessarily very limited. But the notion that oil comes from prehistoric vegetation is largely conjecture, and it has competition. Some Russians maintain that oil is produced by an ongoing abiotic process, a process not involving living things, and at a rate that even today exceeds consumption. Apparently they have some good evidence.
For more than you probably want to know about this see:
