Commentary
The Folly of Hobby Lobby - The Bible Tells Me So
Rev.William E. Alberts: Christianity is fundamentally imperialistic. Its aim is to convert and control people with its assumed biblically revealed one true savior of the world. The tip of its evangelizing iceberg is seen in the folly of Hobby Lobby... The danger is failing to see how people with power use ...the Bible... to justify imposing their beliefs on others, dehumanizing and robbing them of their rights, oppressing and killing them and stealing their resources and land...

Beyond National Interest
Martin LeFevre: In a tour de force of shallow journalism, the leading newspaper in America and arguably the world recently did what they called a news analysis on the United Nations. It's central thesis? "The problem is not that the major world powers don't care. It is that they care too much," the piece risibly pronounced...

The Poor Man's Terrorist Watch List - The Top 10
Douglas Valentine: 1. Cops (especially narcs). While cops do not, strictly speaking, have a political agenda (most don't even vote, they just linger around the booths looking mean and tough), they are, nonetheless, habitual liars who, by nature, enjoy violence and intimidation... 2. Rich People (with more than two houses)...

The Maddening World of Glacial Melt & Its Politics
America's single most pressing issue for the foreseeable future is a changing climate, more important than immigration, health care, or the ever-present wars because those can be fixed. The changing climate cannot be fixed. Once broken it stays broken, and it gets worse and worse until life becomes unbearable, too late to fix... Visit Website ]

Humanity's Place In the Universe
Martin LeFevre: For at least 100,000 years, since 'modern man' first emerged from Africa, humans have been as we are-tribal, self-centered, and dominated by the separative capabilities of 'higher thought.'... Now, as the fragmentation of the earth and humanity by the unwise use of symbolic thought reaches the breaking point, pressure increases for a transmutation of consciousness...

The Threat of Good Example - Socialist Cuba Exports Health Care, Gains Important Recognition
W.T. Whitney Jr.: "In Cuba recently press conferences and new reports celebrated the ten-year anniversary of Operation Miracle, known also as "Mision Miracle," which occurred on July 8. This internationalized project aimed at restoring vision on a massive scale took shape within the context of ALBA, the Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of Our America...

Casualties in a civil war
Alan Maass looks at where the fault lies in the shooting down of a passenger plane... THE 298 people who died in the shooting down of a passenger aircraft over eastern Ukraine last week are more innocent victims of a civil war wracking the country - and the two superpowers that have fueled the conflict, the U.S. and Russia, are trying to exploit the tragedy...

Indifference or Detachment?
Martin LeFevre: It's become fashionable to talk about angels, even to proclaim that one is a channel for this or that incorporeal deity. Such stuff rubs me the wrong way, though I don't dismiss it out of hand. 99% horse pucky still leaves 1% that isn't...

Lives stolen as they played on a beach

Eternity Is Not a Function of Time
Martin LeFevre: ... Freedom doesn't lie in separation of any kind, even politically, much less individually. Independence as we generally know it has nothing to do with freedom. It has come to mean the illusion of being outwardly, individualistic self-sufficient. Physical dependency on each other is a fact, but few people are willing or able to stand alone inwardly. Freedom is first and last within...

In the Fight Against Imperialism - Beware the Peddlers of Despair
Dady Chery: All around us - Afghanistan, Iraq, Haiti, the Congo, Ivory Coast, Palestine, Somalia, Libya, and elsewhere - empires are tearing a trail of destruction. This is not a sign of strength but of weakness, because the aim of empire is not to destroy but to conquer... Since conquest cannot be achieved without the collaboration of the conquered, a campaign of demoralization is an essential component of empire...

Dark Convergences, Light Divergences
Martin LeFevre: "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has." Margaret Mead ... Back in March, a lost Malaysian airliner (milked for as much entertainment-news value as the cable networks could squeeze out of it) shoved the Ukrainian crisis off the headlines. Now another Malaysian airliner disaster (involving exactly the same model as the still unaccounted for MH370) has occurred, bringing the Ukrainian crisis front and center again with a vengeance. Metaphysics is a bitch...

Airline Horror Spurs New Rush to Judgment
President Obama and the State Department's "anti-diplomats" are fanning flames of anger against Russia after the shoot-down of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 over Ukraine. But some U.S. intelligence analysts doubt the popular "blame-the-Russians" scenario, reports Robert Parry. Visit Website ]

Mega-Drought? - It's More Than Just Lack of Rain
"According to the Assessment of Southwest Climate Change (Arizona Institute of the Environment), the five decades from 1950 to 2000 were the warmest in over 600 years. The report predicts that reduced snowfall and increased evaporation from global warming will lead to more droughts over the next 90 years... In short, human influence is once again slowly inching the noose up around its own neck by carelessly burning fossil fuels like there is no tomorrow... Visit Website ]

A flood of bigotry about the border
Mario Cardenas looks at the ugly reaction to the surge of migrant youth detentions--all the way up to the twisted debate in Washington, D.C. ... "The U.S. is filled with suburban Congressional districts that are safe havens for a rising right-wing radicalism that hides behind the mask of concern about homeland security and the economic well-being of native-born citizens....
