Who declares themselves to be the ultimate-only-valid-authority here on current wars elsew (tags)
So many good fotos shared about the most recent and continuous conflicts, be they about Israel and Palestine, about Ukraine and Russia, about anyplace ELSE than in the UStatesA. Each commentator claiming to know ‘the facts’, the holy only truth, the right answer, the wrong ‘other’ or the ‘poor victim’. Exhortations and declarations are good reading on Indy but many forget that opinions and alliances do not make honesty, impartial research, ‘facts’ and reality that will be believed …later. Like all the FIA hindsight revealed, so much is said by media and individual common people writing here are arrogantly acting as-if they were the One and Only One who is RIGHT! …huh ? how many ‘rights’ are there here and how long does that claim last over even a few years or months of time ?

Retirement under capitalism (tags)
Sometimes small statistics can have huge implications. The U.S. Bureau of Labor statistics recently reported that the age at which U.S. workers retire has risen for the first time in 100 years. According to the report, in the mid-1980s, 18 percent of people in their late 60s still had jobs; today, it is 29 percent. Millions of U.S. workers can no longer look forward to the “Golden Years” of guaranteed Social Security, Medicare health insurance and employer pensions. One in four baby boomers surveyed said they would likely never be able to retire – in other words, they will “work until they drop”. For those that do want to retire, the age at which they can do so is also being systematically raised. Workers born in 1960 or later must wait until age 67, rather than 65, to get their full Social Security benefits. There is talk of raising it further to 70. The mainstream media took scant notice of this, and for good reason; it’s a huge indicator of deeper processes that are destroying the standard of living of workers in the United States and internationally. A quick look into why workers are delaying retirement – if they have the “luxury” of retiring at all – points a condemning finger at the current state of international capitalism, while at the same time warning younger workers of the even worse conditions they’ll certainly face under the auspices of the capitalist system.

Regardless of age or source the above maxim expresses a universal truth in relation to social affairs. Recent history reminds us of the fragmentation and demise of a once independent Balkan nation. Yugoslavia now hosts the largest military occupation base (Bondsteel) in Europe. The Balkan conflict is a perfect example of divisionism leading to ruin – as it always does!
