I was saddened to learn of the death of William Blum, December 9, 2018. I have always treasured his Killing Hope and Rogue State, both still on my bookshelves. I first learned of William Blum back in 2003 when I participated in anti-war marches and attended a lecture of his sponsored by the World Social Forum in Brisbane. I love the following video clip because it is clearly in the main the same speech he gave to us in Brisbane back in 2003:
I love is final line, Never believe anything until it is officially denied!
Everything he says is so clear, so logical, so spot on, as true today as it ever was.

He poses a very good question: Is there anything your government could do that would cause you to turn against it? Rape? Torture? Murder? There’s a good chance it’s already doing it.
I originally wrote of sponsorship by the International Solidarity Forum when I should have written World Social Forum. Now corrected.
