text Public Relations - Propaganda as an Economic Branch Lukas Boehm 2014-04-15 5:44 AM
"The borders between skillful PR, dull propaganda and lobbyism and corruption are flowing. The only possibility for protecting oneself is to be informed as extensively and independently as possible. This is easier said than done; information costs energy and time and assumes a basic education." (text/plain)

text Ideas for the Struggle, 24pp www.socialistproject.ca 2014-04-11 3:28 PM
Marta Harneckeris originally from Chile, where she participated in therevolutionary process of 1970-1973. She has written extensively on the Cuban Revolution and on the nature of socialist democracy. She now lives in Caracas and is a participant in the Venezuelan revolution. (text/plain)

text Rejecting TTIP, AFDL-CIO's Trumka Calls for "Global New Deal" Paul Krugman and Richard Trumka 2014-04-01 4:26 AM
The demonization of anyone who talks about the dangers of concentrated wealth is based on a misreading of both the past and the present. Such talk isn’t un-American; it’s very much in the American tradition. So who will be this generation’s Teddy Roosevelt? (Paul Krugman) (text/plain + 1 comment)

text The Free Trade Agreement TTIP - New Version of the "Golden Age" Christine Wicht 2014-02-17 4:46 AM
Lobbyists and think tanks of transnational corporations dreamt of a global market without limits. With enticing slogans like more economic growth or creation of new jobs, the population should accept the trade-and investment agreement. (text/plain)

text Modesty as an Economic Model Tomas Sedlacek 2014-02-10 6:37 AM
"This completely deregulated sphere (derivatives) ultimately grew to greater dimensions than the real economy. That was undoubtedly absolute madness..A smaller financial sector need not be unconditionally bad.. The economy is a faith like every other..." (text/plain)

text Inside the Whale: On the Origin of the Democratic Consensus Peter Klein 2014-02-04 4:51 AM
In his 1940 short story "Inside the Whale," George Orwell satirizes the focus in Henry Miller's Tropic of Cancer. Miller's characters are protected by the fat of the whale and never discuss the challenges and tasks of their historical time. In his poem Is this an apt characterization of our time? (text/plain)

text The State as a Human Cage Andreas Exner 2014-02-03 6:54 AM
"Personal performance" always depends on the work of past generations and state interventions. The 1% stylize inequality as a motor to innovation, growth and development. Exploding inequality is the end to public spirit and interdependence. (text/plain)

text What Does the Workless Party Stand For? www.worklessparty.org 2014-02-02 10:36 AM
The economy should be a part of life, not a steamroller crushing self-determination and creativity. The Workless Party of B.C. seeks to uncouple work and income and to ensure human survival and the environment. The only way to create full employment is to reduce working hours (text/plain + 1 comment)

text 10 Things Pres. Obama Can Do Right Now www.credoaction.com 2014-01-28 3:03 PM
The state has a social nature and cannot only be a power and security state. The time is right for alternative economics, reducing working hours, expanding the public sector, shrinking financial sector and community centers. (text/plain)

text Capitalism as a Secularized Religion Tomasz Konicz 2014-01-27 4:22 AM
It is never too early or too late to challenge the dominant narrative. Capitalism is a fetish social formation, a demolishing of being not a reform of being. Capitalism may be the first case of an indebted cult, not an atoning cult, possibly the most bloodthirsty cult of humanity's history. (text/plain)

text Should the NFL Lose Its Tax-Exempt Status? Andy Kroll 2014-01-26 3:47 PM
Giving a tax-exempt status to the NFL is like Stephan Harper's perversion of remaking Canada a bitumen staple theory. Vancouver BC has 26 community centers, some with swimming pools that take your breath away. Maybe a future of community centers is a third way beyond state and market. (text/plain)

text Interview with Chuck MorseHe founded the Institute for Anarchist Studies Teka Lark 2014-01-14 7:14 PM

text The Socialist Origins of the Pledge of Allegiance Peter Dreier 2013-12-26 10:40 AM
Francis Bellamy, a Christian socialist, wrote the Pledge of Allegiance in 1892 as a critique of the rampant greed, misguided materialism, and hyper-individualism of the Gilded Age. But you'd never know that by reading CNN contributor Bob Greene's column earlier this week called "The Peculiar History of the Pledge of Allegiance." (text/plain)

text Get Ready for the 2014 Trade Tsunami: Lori Wallach Lori Wallach 2013-12-22 10:40 AM
2014 could be Fast Track’s Waterloo. But between this prospect and reality lies a knock-down drag-out battle that will be quickly engaged with the dawn of the new year. Get ready. (text/plain)

text VIDEO: "Super Amigos," 2007, 1 hr 12 min www.snagfilms.com 2013-12-20 1:03 PM
Difference is a strength and enrichment, not a threat. Resisting exorbitant rents is part of the larger struggle to reclaim the city. The sovereignty of human rights could replace the sovereignty of nation-states when it mutates into market rule (cf. Rafeal Correa, Ecuador) (text/plain)

text The Soup Kitchen State Grows Christoph Butterwegge 2013-12-17 5:51 AM
Old age poverty is the result of dismantling the social state...What is lacking for the impacted is justice. Need justice and distribution justice have always existed in the political realm. The task of the social state was to fight poverty and protect citizens. (text/plain)

text Tea Party: Extremism of the Middle Tomasz Konicz 2013-12-09 4:46 AM
The Tea Party wants to return to an idyllic past that never really happened. The Tea Party wants to stop the accelerating descent of the white middle class by driving ideological ideas to the extreme. The right-wing hardliners believe capitalism could be reanimated if the state were shattered. (text/plain)

text A Global Ban on Left-Wing Politics George Monbiot 2013-12-06 6:55 AM
That's what the new rules being smuggled into trade agreements are delivering. The Guardian journalist, George Monbiot, refers to Philip Morris, Pacific Rim Gold Mining (Canada) and other corporations that may be enriched by the "Investor-state dispute settlement" in TTIP/TAFTA (text/plain + 1 comment)

the American Card Game (text/plain + 2 comments)

text VIDE: Zombie Politics and Casino Capitalism Henry Giroux 2013-11-24 5:53 PM
Henry Giroux: Is the market mentality so powerful and taken for granted that public imagination cannot resist? Educated hope recognizes problems without romanticizing. Ideas matter and offer framework to allow us to be critical and literate. (text/plain)

In the US, the top tax rate was over 70% from 1938 to 1982. Reagan cut the top rate to 35% and changed taxation from corporate to individual leading to exploding inequality and generalized insecurity. Taxation, investment, labor market, trade and distribution policies must change. (text/plain)

text When Prevention Becomes Paranoia Bernd Greiner 2013-11-04 4:39 AM
According to Bernd Greiner, more Americans die annually from deadly bee stings than from terrorism. The 68-antiwar movement should have taught us to redefine security, health, strength and happiness and not fall into the traps of militarism or financialization. Jobs create true security. (text/plain)
