buy the May Harper's
if only for Lewis Lapham's essay, "Buffalo Dances".

The phrase "national security" undoubtedly will make numerous appearances in the campaign speeches between now and the November election, and if the ritual holds true to form it will add to the country's inventories of fear instead of increasing its store of courage. To define the national security as a wonder of aircraft carriers or a marvel of surveillance cameras is to mistake the lesser for the greater instruments of American power, to miss the point, made by the signatories to both the Constitution and the report from the Union of Concerned Scientists, that the republic's best and only chance for survival rests on its freedom of thought and force of mind.

2. Doesn't Bev Harris have an article in this issue as well?
Or is that April?
