Louis wants to know: "Is it permissible to write articles deploring tanks
killing people in Hama? What about if they are written in 8-point type?
Would that be okay?"

The bourgeois press and the governments they serve hardly need your help in
spreading the word about what is happening in Hama. Why don't you write
articles about what they are NOT writing about? You could start with the
everyday killings and field burnings and so on in the West Bank. Or how
about the soldiers killing themselves right here in the U.S. thanks to
untreated PTSD? Or the open season on black youth by cops? There are
countless things the bourgeois press is not covering that people need to
learn about.

On the other hand, if your major aim is to avoid getting "cooties" by being
perceived as having any association with the Syrian regime, than by all
means, please write such an article and save yourself from the dreaded
