I'm sorry that I neglected to mention who Kovel is. Sometimes I forget that
nearly half this list lives outside the United States. Joel Kovel is a
professor at Bard College who has written a number of books on psychiatric
theory including one that explains the witch-hunt partly as a mental
illness. In the past 10 years or so, he has helped to define ecosocialist
politics in many different journals, most frequently in "Capitalism, Nature
and Socialism". He is a member of the Green Party in upstate NY and ran for
Senator in the last election.
