"A Call to Action is a poignant and uncompromising analysis of the criminal/justice system which spends millions of dollars annually, and controls the lives of approximately one million inmates--of which nearly two-thirds are Black and members of other non-white groups. Of particular concern is the over-representation of Black men who traverse the criminal justice system as though it was especially designed for them."

A New Tomorrow

Date: 
August 2006
Volume: 
#22
Abstract: 
<p>HFI would like to promote individual achievement &amp; social cooperation in accord with nature. To do this, we will use clear intentions, a calm attitude, focus, and harmony. We will explore the inner workings of life in hope of discovering universal truths. To fulfill our obligation to society, we wish to work toward defending the weak, protecting the environment, useful education, eliminating poverty, and implementing universal healthcare as a means to peace. PRINCIPLES: 1) We want to govern ourselves, not others. 2) We want to work for unity instead of competition. 3) We want to be open and promote general participation and reject secrecy, racism, sexism, homophobia, and other discriminatory practices. 4) We strive for simplicity and moderation.</p><p>In this issue: The author discusses his grandfather's death and the memories it brings; moustache rituals in Muskegon, Michigan; moving to Chicago and looking for work; thoughts on the Iraq War and democracy; and renting a Batman-themed room at a hotel in Gurnee. Illustrated.<br /></p>
