There's Only One Way to Save the World From Climate Armageddon
Michael T. Klare: no combination ... even if carried out, would prove sufficient to prevent global disaster—not as long as China and the U.S. continue to prioritize trade competition and war preparations over planetary survival. ... If the planet's two "great" powers refuse to cooperate in a meaningful way in tackling the climate threat, we're done for. ...

9/11: Why Americans Were Never Told Why They Were Attacked
Joe Lauria: When Western media discusses terrorism against the West, such as 9/11, the motive is almost always left out, even when the terrorists state they are avenging longstanding Western violence in the Muslim world ... Indirect Western culpability in these terrorist acts is routinely suppressed, let alone evidence of direct Western involvement with terrorism ... The West’s motive for all this meddling is often pinned on oil. But obedience is a strong factor. ... the West ludicrously cloaks its own violence as an effort to spread democracy (which never seems to materialize) or protect civilians (who are endangered instead) ...To admit any connection between the sordid historical record and anti-Western terrorism would be to admit culpability and the price that the West is paying for its dominance...

Labor Day Gives US Workers Little to Celebrate
Bob Hennelly: For decades now American workers have been losing their leverage, as the world’s biggest corporations were able to successfully play one country’s workforce off another. ... But now the same corporate interests ... are increasingly turning to robots and automation to reduce their human workforce planet-wide. ... Only a universal income, without means testing, can help buffer the US from the socio- economic dislocation that’s going to come from “permanent” job scarcity ... The US is in the midst of a profound shift that is having generational consequences. ... it means re-assessing the ways that people have been thinking about labor and wealth for centuries...

Manuel García,Jr.: ‘Keith’ had been tasked to bring me a very tasty offer for getting back into the Deep State fast action high tech world I had been so enthralled by. The project was being run by Dick Cheney, and its purpose was to reshape the World Order to secure another century of US control. ... that is how I was recruited into the most complex US false flag operation in history: the secret controlled demolition of the World Trade Center: a cover for launching the Global War On Terror ... In less than two weeks, staged as HVAC, plumbing, elevator, and electrical conduit repairmen working through the Labor Day weekend of 2001, all our teams got the WTC Twin Towers and Building 7 wired for demolition...

Building Social Solidarity Across National Boundaries
Lawrence Wittner: In 1915, as national governments produced the shocking carnage of World War I, Ralph Chaplin, an activist in the Industrial Workers of the World, wrote his stirring song, “Solidarity Forever.” ... Taken up by unions around the globe, it proclaimed that there was “no power greater anywhere beneath the sun” than international working class solidarity. ... over the course of modern history, social movements have managed, to a remarkable degree, to form global networks of activists who have transcended nationalism in their ideas and actions. .... the environmental movement, to the nuclear disarmament movement, to the campaign against corporate globalization, to the racial justice movement...

Pirate Property: Everything You Own Is Wrong
STEVE O’KEEFE: At some point, American courts decided land stolen from native Americans was rightfully transferred. That was just the beginning of the thefts sanctioned by courts legalizing dispossessing people of their property. ... No property has clean title. ... Who owns the fish in the sea? Are they harvested or stolen? ... When you realize everything is everyone’s and you’re “entitled” to whatever you have, you do not become a thief, a murderer, a rapist. Rather, you value that which is voluntarily given. ... What matters is what I do when I’m here, not the property I leave behind. ...

Why the West Funds Terrorism
Cynthia Chung: On June 22, 2021, Bulgarian journalist Dilyana Gaytandzhieva published an expose titled “US fuels Syrian war with new arms supplies to Al Qaeda terrorists,” ... the Pentagon is buying $2.8 billion worth of weapons ... Most of the weapons are destined for Syria ... there is ample evidence that the US has been arming Al Qaeda in Syria all along ... Yet strangely, this rather disastrous foreign policy has not been recognised for the absolute lunacy and general mayhem that it emboldens ... spend billions of dollars on the forever “War on Terror,” to which these governments are presently arming the other side to combat!...

The Insecurity Industry
Edward Snowden: The greatest danger to national security has become the companies that claim to protect it ... In short, the phone in your hand exists in a state of perpetual insecurity, open to infection by anyone willing to put money in the hand of this new Insecurity Industry. ... An Industry like this, whose sole purpose is the production of vulnerability, should be dismantled. ... Where there is no liability, there is no accountability ... State-sponsored hacking has become such a regular competition that it should have its own Olympic category ... In technology as in public health, to protect anyone, we must protect everyone. ... The first step in this direction—at least the first digital step—must be to ban the commercial trade in intrusion software.... Visit Website ]

The Olympics Is a Racket
An interview with Jules Boykoff: The world’s top athletes coming together in a spirit of friendly competition is a beautiful vision. But the Olympics have become a machine for the ruthless extraction of profit at the expense of working-class people. ... The IOC, political power players, and megacorporations use the occasion as a pretext to funnel massive amounts of money to local and international elites while stiffing athletes and harming working-class people in every Olympic city. ... The games are an extreme intensifier of inequality: some people’s homes are razed to make space for temporary structures, while others rake in millions and live permanently at five-star hotels...

The Fight for Recognition: The Tularosa Basin Downwinders and the Injustices of Trinity
Tina Cordova: On July 16, 1945, when the US government detonated the first atomic bomb at the Trinity Site in South Central New Mexico, officials had little to no concern for the people who lived in the adjacent area. ... Most of them were people of color, Native Americans and also Hispanos ... These people were warned neither before nor after the so-called “test” as to the dangers they were facing as a result of the bomb ... As documented in written and oral histories recorded by the Tularosa Basin Downwinders Consortium (TBDC), ash fell from the sky for days after the bomb was detonated and settled on everything—the people, the land, and the animals ...

Why We Should Change How We Talk About Nonhuman Animals
Debra Merskin, Carrie P. Freeman and Alicia Graef: Happy has to be one of the most ironic names for an Asian elephant whose living conditions have prompted groundbreaking legal action on her behalf. ... Her lawyers at the Nonhuman Rights Project argue that Happy possesses such complex cognitive, emotional and social abilities and deserves fundamental rights to “bodily liberty” and “bodily integrity” ... If successful, her liberation would be a landmark step toward breaking down the legal wall that separates humans from nonhuman animals. ... Nonhuman animals value their own lives, have their own interests and experience a range of emotions similar to our own ... We share this planet with a mind-blowing array of incredible, awe-inspiring, sentient nonhuman animals whose lives matter to them and who each deserve the dignity and respect of us... Visit Website ]

Jeff Schechtman: Interview with Josiah Thompson,author of Last Second in Dallas ... a “clearing” of all the bad information, and a reaffirmation of the simplicity of what we actually know (about JFK murder) ... We now can say that what happened was that Kennedy was hit above the right temple by a shot fired from about 8 to 10 feet west of the corner of the stockade fence, that that shot killed him without any question. ... three-quarters of a second later, Kennedy is hit a second time in the head by a shot that clearly came from the depository window ... One guy didn’t do it ... What this also means is that Lee Harvey Oswald did not kill the president... Visit Website ]

Fermi’s Other Paradox
Caitlin Johnstone: In the summer of 1950, four nuclear physicists were walking to lunch from the Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico. Their names were Emil Konopinski, Herbert York, Edward Teller, and Enrico Fermi. .... One of them was not human. ... On this particular occasion they discussed the recent spate of reports about flying saucers, and whether or not an alien civilization could hypothetically have discovered how to travel faster than the speed of light ... They listened with rapt attention as Fermi’s luminous mind rapidly dissected the sheer mathematical improbability of humanity being the only intelligent life in this galaxy... Visit Website ]

A People’s Guide to the War Industry -5: Portfolio of Conflicts
Christian Sorensen: When war is profit, death ensures a healthy bottom line... A variety of conflicts, disparate and some seemingly futile, is precisely the aim. Conflict itself — producing untold mountains of profit for war corporations and Wall Street — is the goal. ... Capital is also putting money toward cultivating and promoting politicians who advocate for wars and broad military deployments; media and think tanks to propagandize and generate militant narratives ... and marketing, pushing, and operating goods and services that harm populations and destabilize countries around the world, generating more profitable conflict ... The war industry pursues a portfolio of conflicts as any organized, dominant industry views the global marketplace... Visit Website ]
