America: Raping and Destroying Planet Earth to Own It
Stephen Lendman: Americans are the most over-entertained, least-informed people anywhere - despite minimal effort needed to access vast amounts of easily accessible credible information online and through other truth-telling sources ... Ruling authorities and complicit media scoundrels take full advantage - manipulating public sentiment, substituting fiction for facts, making people believe the most ruthless regime in world history is its most benign...

White Silence is Violence: How to be a White Accomplice
Corrine Fletcher: Racism exists, and it is a white problem. Therefore, a more honest and accurate way to talk about racism –which requires both prejudice and systemic or institutional power over others– is to call it what it is: white supremacy ... White people need to use their white privilege to talk to others about white privilege and white supremacy ... Invisibility gives white supremacy power. Call it out... Visit Website ]

Deterrents to Terror that Very Rich People Can't Comprehend
Paul Buchheit: As people gain in wealth, they depend less on others, and thus they have less reason to understand the feelings and needs of the less fortunate ... That makes it difficult to relate to people without jobs, and without proper housing, and without prospects for the future. It makes it difficult to understand that their states of deprivation and desperation can make them lash out against those they consider responsible for the injustices of extreme inequality... The following are some of the reasons for violent 'blowback' reactions that are often called 'terrorism.'... Visit Website ]

Wikileaks Exposes Democrats’ Corruption
Margaret Kimberley, BAR: Emails released by Wikileaks show the Democratic Party corrupted its own primary process to elect Hillary Clinton – a politician who “has nothing to offer aside from not being Donald Trump.” The DNC deployed a full array of dirty tricks against Bernie Sanders, with the help of corporate media ... “The task of leftists is to work towards the establishment of a party that represents the interests of working people.”...

Israel Lines Its Pockets With Palestinian Aid
RobertFantina: Since all aid to Palestine must go through Israel... this provides endless opportunities for “aid subversion” or “aid diversion.” That is why studies indicate that 72 percent of that money remains in Israel, never benefitting Palestinians... Does it not appear that perhaps the international deck is stacked against Palestine? The U.S. sends it a fraction of what it sends to Israel, and Israel steals most of it anyway... There can be no question that Mr. Abbas is far more beneficial to the U.S. and Israel than he is to Palestine, nor can it be questioned that the U.S. enables Israel’s apartheid regime...

The most Left Wing Supreme Court in a Generation? Sec. Clinton’s most important Progressive Prospect
Juan Cole: It is likely that if she wins the presidency, the most progressive thing Sec. Clinton will do will be to appoint a successor to Antonin Scalia who is substantially to his left (since the Neanderthals are extinct, it would be hard to find someone to his right). That appointment would shift the court from a 5-4 conservative majority to a 5-4 liberal majority ... Things won’t change overnight, but we could be in for a return to a situation more like the 1950s and 1960s, when the Court was in the vanguard of some progressive change in the country, rather than a brake on progress...

Illuminate the Shadows--Don't Resign to Them!
Martin LeFevre: Sophisticated people are applying Buddhist and New Age concepts about the timeless nature of reality to salve harsh temporal realities. The world, however, must be met without recourse to notions of higher reality. The truth of impermanence cannot be used as a balm for man's destruction of the earth and the human spiritual potential...

Resurgent Mexico
Quincy Saul: Mexico is living and dying for the sins of the global economy ... But from the South, an anti-thesis to empire shines, and the beginning of the world arises like a shining star whose five points stand for five continents ... Last month it was my privilege to be a student in the mountains of the Mexican Southeast ... this school is the Zapatista Army of National Liberation, and its civilian bases of support, whose autonomous self-government administers roughly half of the state of Chiapas...

Americans Choke on the Term “Welfare State”
Russ Wellen: Americans’ aversion to taxes blinds them to not only the benefits, but the opportunities that Nordic countries enjoy ... Americans tend to think that the Nordic countries’ generous social services programs come at the expense of economic opportunity, partly because of what seem to be high taxes. But that may be a myth ... There’s no point in discussing the levels of taxes in different countries unless you discuss what you get for your taxes... Visit Website ]

Globalism Before Americanism
Martin LeFevre: As history demonstrates, there are times, such as 1930's Germany, when the consent of the governed is used to destroy democracy. Donald Trump is a despot in waiting who would destroy what we have left of democracy in the United States, and could bring about the end of civilization... We have to begin pouring the foundation and erecting the framework for a true world order... in a completely interconnected global society, self-determination of particular peoples can only flow from the emotionally held perception of the wholeness of humanity...

Forget the future of work. What about the future of consumption?
Scott Santens: Our goal should be eliminating as many of the jobs as possible that we as humans don't enjoy doing. However, what doesn't tend to get discussed is the flip side of all of this, which is the fruits of the all the work by humans and machines, the limited amounts any of us as humans can consume them simply because of limited time, and how our consumer preferences are being permanently and irrevocably altered by short-sighted greed... The future of work cannot be separated from the future of consumption. And the future of both will rest entirely on the foundation of basic income... Visit Website ]

US Wars Kill Way More Civilians Than Combatants
Stephen Lendman: America, NATO and Israel operate by the same standard. Civilian lives don’t matter ... Defenseless men, women, children, the elderly and infirm are treated like combatants - indiscriminately or willfully slaughtered ... Post-9/11 alone, millions of civilians perished in US direct and proxy wars - either being in harm’s way, deliberately targeted or succumbing to war related violence, preventable diseases, starvation or deprivation...

Top 10 Reasons Why It's Just Fine for U.S. to Blow Up Children
David Swanson: 1. Somebody mistook them for ISIS fighters, determined that each of them was a continuing and imminent threat to the United States, verified a near zero possibility of any civilians being hurt in the process, and determined that some more bombing was just the way to advance a cease-fire in Syria. So this was not only an accident, but a series of unfortunate events, mistakes, and miscalculations of such proportions that they're unlikely ever to all align again for at least a few days to come...

A Question of Faith
Martin LeFevre: Man-made chaos is growing exponentially, putting the planet and the human prospect and spiritual potential in real and present danger. Most people peripherally acknowledge it, without facing the fact... That generates personal fear, which creates a big market for spiritual guides and life coaches. Something has to fill the vacuum, and if true learning can't, false teachers will...

Big Pharma Feels the Bern
Thom Hartmann: The entities that are really getting rich off the commons are the corporations and corporate executives who, with the help of sellout Republicans, have turned our economy and tax system into their very own get-rich-quick scheme... While big drug companies like to talk about how cutting-edge they are, they really don't do very much innovation at all... After these giant drug companies make all that money from selling drugs invented by taxpayer-funded research, they then stash that money overseas to avoid paying taxes on it... Visit Website ]
