Trolling ...what is that ? (tags)
Definitions - name calling that appears often here at Indy is being called a "troll" or claiming that someone is "trolling". What could such a Bad Word mean ? Not one of those ugly plastic dolls that were sold to sweet children a while back. Not from actual Grimm's fairy tales. This word is intended to insult, offend, discredit and accuse without merit anyone some writer doesnt like or with whom they dont happen to agree. How mean ? And on Indymedia where civilized writers want to share ?

Germany: The Calm Before the Storm (tags)

Banking on Our Ignorance: A holocaust denier is taken on by his cousin (tags)
The more ignorant or unfamiliar you are with and about statecraft, the easier people who want to perpetuate war can manipulate you. So committments to war or peace or radical sanity take form, and an intensifying radical's radical dialogue "becomes" between two persons who like each other at face value (and some years of background history). This communication may be instructive for those who want to better understand aggression and its rationalizations in order to ju-jitsu the worst of what happens when beliefs are allowed to bear the ugly fruits of perpetual war.

EAST AND WEST PALESTINE, AND ISRAEL? (tags)
Given Israeli Prime Minister Sharon's continued persistence to carry out his Gaza Disengagement Plan, Condoleeza Rice's recent statements and renewed American involvement, and the recent Sharm el-Sheikh cease-fire agreement, it's now more important than ever to think seriously about the "real" viability (or not) of a territorially divided Palestinian state.
If god exists, then god is responsible. (tags)
We must recognise, and soon, that our belief in a divine, omnipotent and masterful ‘god’ is insulting to the magnificence of our species.
Is Bush a bigger liar than Clinton? (tags)
George W. Bush and his sleazy gang have but one guiding principle that dominates all they do. They use public power and influence for private gain and will do just about anything to keep the power in order to keep the gain.
Vindication is no Consolation (tags)
The protection by US troops of the Oil Ministry in Baghdad while allowing the looting of the National Museum is a vivid illustration of the real reason for the war, but it is no consolation to the suffering and maimed Iraqi children.
