REMEMBERING JOSE RIZAL AND SISA, THE ANTI-POSTCOLONIAL DIFFEREND
June 19 this year marks the 53rd anniversary of the Philippines' national hero Jose Rizal's birthday. In Nov 1884, Rizal joined mass demonstrations in Madrid to protest the government's repressive policies. He wrote to his family:"Filipinos are dishonored, entrapped, debased, opposed and tyrannized," so he had to disguise himself three times. The following review centers on Rizal's ideas and Sisa, the character in Rizal's novel, who symbolizes the "wretched of the earth," discussed in E. San Juan's book, SISA'S VENGEANCE (available at amazon.com & createspace). (image/jpeg)

text Video: Fair Taxes for All, Joseph Stiglitz http://billmoyers.com 2014-06-08 7:39 PM
Barriers are political , not economic. Humans can revise the tax code. Our tax system encourages the 1%. If you're not creating jobs here, you'll have a high tax. Median income is lower than a quarter of a century ago. All the growth has gone to the top. We no longer have a country with opportunity. (text/plain)

text Tax Extenders Cost Billions Deborah Field 2014-06-01 12:37 PM
The GE Loophole isn't just unfair to small businesses; it's a burden to us all. If the loophole is renewed, it will cost $62 billion over the next decade.

The new indebtedness is a consequence of the crisis caused by the financial industry-and in no way owed to an excessive social state, demographic change and so forth.. There are many critics of this policy of mastering crisis by flooding the financial markets with fresh money. (text/plain)

text 220 schoolgirls enslaved by Boko Haram Nick Cohen 2014-05-03 4:15 PM
Quote: "If occidentalism was absurd in the past, it's preposterous now. Boko Haram is not reacting to western intervention in Nigeria, for there is none. The only way you can pretend the west is to blame is by agreeing that knowledge is "western knowledge", rather than the property of the entire human race, and that the education of girls is "western cultural imperialism" – a road that leads you to nihilism as soon as you step down it."

text Re-feudalization Stefan Howald 2014-04-24 4:42 AM
Neoliberalism has brought us back to Rockefeller's best times. Bill Gates is 1.4 million times as rich as the average American. A "feudal lifestyle" is made out to be worthwhile and in no way negatively described. Thus "re-feudalization" is dulled as a polemical term. (text/plain)
