I Have Never Felt So Ashamed of America
Martin LeFevre: America is caught in a perpetual perfect storm of cultural collapse, rampant mental illness, unbridled darkness and evil, and roiled on a bloody sea of 400 million guns. ... All of that is background. The foreground, and the reason nothing changes, is that "we the people" are dead. ... These are not "incomprehensible" crimes, as politicians and pundits repeat ad nauseum with each nauseating slaughter, but all too understandable in a culture like this.

Liberals Drive State Censorship
Margaret Kimberley: Liberals are the force behind censorship efforts. They defend the state and seek to silence anyone who questions its narratives. ... the Department of Homeland Security announced the establishment of a Disinformation Governance Board ... conservatives and those who are truly on the left saw the danger in what some called a Ministry of Truth, as described in George Orwell’s 1984 ...

Steps to Encourage Peace in Ukraine
Deb Sawyer: I've often read the quote, "The first casualty of war is truth." But I wonder if there aren't other first casualties including humility and the failure to see that the "enemy" is just as human as we are. ... I encourage the U.S. to take these two steps: First, to talk with the governments of the five NATO countries which house those comparatively few U.S. nuclear weapons and remove those weapons from those countries. ... Second, to change our attitude towards the TPNW (Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons ) ... We have said that we support abolishing nuclear weapons. ...

The Locus of Evil Is Not a Person or a Nation
Martin LeFevre: The problem of evil is a very hard philosophical nut, one that no philosopher, East or West, has cracked. Illuminating the nature and operation of evil has now become a matter of inward survival, and even the physical survival of humanity. ... It's no longer possible to avoid collective darkness and evil. The accretion of darkness in human consciousness is destroying the human spirit. ... Evil is not a cosmic phenomenon but a man-made reality. ... For our part, Americans either individualize evil or project it onto an enemy. That's allowed collective darkness to grow in us as a people...

Jeffrey St. Clair: According to the Washington Post, Republicans are getting more and more confident that the overturning of Roe v. Wade will not seriously harm their chances of regaining House and Senate majorities come November. ...

Israel’s PR Problem, And Other Notes From The Edge Of The Narrative Matrix
Caitlin Johnstone: Israel’s mounting PR crisis boils down to the fact that its violence and oppression isn’t happening in some far off land as in the case with US wars, it’s happening right at home surrounded by video cameras and enforced by police and soldiers who are not adept PR spinmeisters. ... They don’t think how it’s going to look when they, for example, assault mourners at the funeral of a Palestinian American journalist who was slain by IDF sniper fire. ...
