Gregory Shank, ed.
This issue of Social Justice explores the moral responsibility of individuals in a time of war, the complicity of international financial institutions in Africa’s tragic genocides, the dumping of toxic waste in the Third World, and the damage done internationally by neoconservative wars of choice and the use of torture. Contributors to this issue discuss refining the mechanisms in place that can lessen the extent of impunity when genocide occurs. Given the world economic crisis, this must take place alongside rescuing the key financial and productive institutions of American capitalism, reforming and strengthening international financial institutional arrangements, extricating the country from two hot wars and countless worldwide military entanglements, and putting in place a non-carbon energy architecture sufficiently robust to save the planet from a meltdown.
