As city populations grew. see United States (People): Urbanization of America. They also preserved a distrust of any government not subject to direct oversight by citizens. However, some states, such as Rhode Island, require that truth bespoken with "justifiable ends" or "good motive." Particularly dist urbing has been watching the world’s most prominent human rights organizations sell themselves out to money and power.� Human Rights Watch long ago largely adopted the USA's interventionist paradigm (i.e., if the USA intervenes internationally, it must be for a good cause).� That left Amnesty International as the premier mainstream human rights organization.� I contributed to them for years.� The tribunal at The Hague was set up for prosecuting war crimes.� The USA funded it and controlled it nearly completely.� It was a kangaroo court, particularly used for political ends as the USA attacked Yugoslavia.� Most aspects of impartial courts were dispensed with at that tribunal, with breathtaking hypocrisy. [370] � When the tribunal indicted Milosevic when the USA began bombing Yugoslavia (a nearly unprecedented judicial outrage), it was evident how the court would operate, and the succeeding years confirmed my suspicions.� It was with a heavy heart that I began reading Amnesty International’s mailings to me, which campaigned to have Milosevic arrested and tried at that tribunal.� Even as the kangaroo court aspect of the court is clear to all impartial observers, Amnesty International kept sending me funding pleas that make clear its unwavering support for that court.� Violating Milosevic’s human rights, to pursue human rights, is something right out of Orwell, and is always doomed to failure, if justice is its goal.� With what happened at that tribunal, virtually anybody could be tried for “war crimes.”� If Milosevic is actually guilty of war crimes, and I would not be surprised, then Clinton and Blair deserved to be sitting alongside Milosevic behind bars, a hundred times over.� The tribunal is a winners’ court, however, and winners never face war crimes trials.� Amnesty International’s stance was so shocking that I snooped around in the human rights community, asking those whose opinion I respected, and my sentiments were confirmed.� I was told that Amnesty International began adopting the USA's interventionist paradigm during the Gulf War.� While they still do some good work, I did not renew my membership.
