John Mackesy is 58 years old, married, parent, Harvard College graduate '67 (History major), former mailman, businessman, teacher, coach and currently Napa Valley Tour Guide, Beringer Winery, St Helena, California. His father's family in Ireland was brutalized by occupying British soldiers [Thugs, he called them} who broke down the door in the night. So he is averse to paying taxes that finance such behavior in a distant land. His college roommate was a brilliant young man who died of "Multiple fragmentation wounds" in Vietnam. So he is opposed to wars that are sold with lies and exaggerations to the profit of military industrial corporations and political campaign war chests. He works night and day, to exhaustion against militarism. He contributed this article to Media Monitors Network (MMN) from California, USA.
