 NEITHER THEIR WAR NOR THEIR PEACE
In every war, there are always those individuals who, sickened by the smell of blood and by the heinousness of their masters, refuse the ignoble role which would play into the hands of the state, disobeying it and fraternizing with those who have been pointed out to them as enemy.
Thus, social peace is simply an aspect of the ongoing social war of the rulers against those who they exploit, the war necessary to maintain capitalism and the state.
But when the war in Afghanistan ends, the social war through which the ruling class maintains its domination will continue, and so will the struggle of the exploited against their condition and the specific and conscious struggle of anarchists against the state, capital and all institutions of domination and exploitation.

Social injustice is more outrageous than ever, and partly as a result of this other kinds of violence are extreme.
Little by little, in one country after another, these moments of violence and revolt are taking on the characteristics of what we could call social war.

 Social democracy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Social democracy is a political ideology that emerged in the late 19th century.
In recent years, a number of social democratic parties and governments have arguably moved away from some traditional elements of social democracy—supporting, for example, the privatisation of state-controlled industries and services and a reduction in the regulation of the market.
Most social democrats support gay marriage, abortion rights and a liberal drug policy, while others are either non-committed or openly opposed strongly to these policies, although feigned opposition may be employed for political expediency.

Why, all that would be needed is a virulent form of the flu to sweep the globe to fix the budget problem, since adults are far more vulnerable to infectious diseases as they age.

 History will judge Bush on terror war, Social Security
When historians look back on our present time, there's a good chance they will judge President Bush and the current generation of lawmakers by the adequacy of their response to the two overriding challenges facing America today.
Thoughtful liberals such as C. Eugene Steuerle of the Urban Institute fret that “without an overhaul of entitlement programs or tax-revenue reform, the ever-expanding Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid budgets will tighten the squeeze on other domestic spending.” Steuerle's main concern is the future viability of education, nutrition, welfare, community development, and housing programs.
Of course, because lawmakers must also address the unsustainable paths of Social Security and Medicaid, the scope of the economic Armageddon could be even worse.
