The Left is Not Obsolete (tags)
"Propaganda is always the other. We are the principled," said Norman Birnbaum. The left is rooted philosophically in the Enlightenment with its rejection of throne and alter. The left sought material redistribution for moral reasons-for the sake of transforming human nature.
The Way to Authoritarianism is Paved with Lies (tags)
Lying is part of the human condition. But democracy is in peril when politicians make lying into a "business principle." Lying is a second nature for Trump. Trump lies strategically and doesn't have a bad conscience. For Trump, the borders between true and false disappear.

The Corrupted Nature Conservancy And Ecosia Search Engine (tags)
Nature Conservancy, once a network of wilderness sanctuaries, was taken over by Henry Paulson, former CEO of Goldman Sachs and G W Bush Secretary of the Treasury who arranged bank bailouts. He turned the forest shrines into mixed use cattle ranches. Now NC is intertwined with the Ecosia search engine and is able to datamine the computers of those doing searches.

Ethics and the Profit System: Global Change of Values Necessary (tags)
Profit-making is not profit-maximizing. From the magic word profit-mongering is derived the absurd unequal distribution of wealth, cheating of consumers, the exploitation of workers and ultimately the abolition of democracy. An invisible hand makes business profit into common good

Kurt Vonnegut's 7 Pieces of Advice (tags)
The mind of Kurt Vonnegut, like the protagonist of his best-known novel Slaughterhouse-Five, must have got “unstuck in time” somewhere along the line. How else could he have managed to write his distinctive brand of satirical but sincere fiction, hyper-aware of past, present, and future at once?

Our Proposal for Changing the System and not the Climate (tags)
The capitalist system has exploited and abused nature, pushing the planet to its limits, so much so that the system has accelerated dangerous and fundamental changes in the climate.
Erich Fromm on Karl Marx (tags)
The capitalist production method makes a few persons absurdly rich while the others hardly have enough to survive. Capitalism also makes people unfree and unhappy because their access to their true needs is blocked.
Barry Commoner (1917-2012) (tags)
The economic theory of socialism does not demand an unlimited growth. The capitalist agrarian economy and industry wear out the two exclusive sources of wealth: the earth and workers. Capitalist accumulation and the finite earth are in contradiction.

Raul Zelik and Elmar Altvater discuss the nature of utopia, economics, how growth and work become fetishes, how what is rational in micro-economics can become irrational in macro-economics, time prosperity and how Marx recognized the contradictions in capitalism.
Book Review: "The Great Crash or the Century Crisis" by Elmar Altvater (tags)
Capitalism is at an end and the whole world is drawn into the mess. Preventing this is an ethical imperative and a political duty. The multiple crisis has dragged on for years. The political class allows this to happen. Political answers to the debacle can only be found with clarity on causes.
Our economic system has no future (tags)
A sustainable future requires facing the realities of waste and speculation. The economy should be a part of life, not a steamroller crushing creativity and self-determination. The economy should serve humankind, not vice versa.
Fukushima Mon Horreur - The Dream of Economic Reason Gives Birth to Tremendous Catastrophe (tags)
In "Anti-Duhring," Frederick Engels explained that nature also has a history and that capitalism tends to destroy its own foundations and nature. The negative is bound to the positive as conservation of energy is bound to transformation of energy.
State without Shame: Contradictions (tags)
The central question remains unanswered: why no society in the past could permanently guarantee freedom and equality. Are we lacking in brotherliness and human relations? Are we not equal to the size of the task? Or are we prisoners of structures that force us to act against our will?
WikiLeaks: Police trained Bangladeshi death squads (tags)
"Crossfire" killings are a euphemism for an execution. Acting as judge, jury and executioner, a government-appointed Star Chamber decides who should die for their so-called crimes against the interests of the ruling clique and then the order goes out to the Rapid Action Battalion (RAB). The WikiLeaks cables show that the British government facilitates this execution squad—providing it with training, the exact nature of which, in light of the ongoing brutal behaviour of British forces and inhumane conduct in Iraq and Afghanistan, remains somewhat cloudy. "The training of the Bangladeshi RAB members in the UK has been carried out by the West Mercia and Humberside police forces. The courses are approved by the British Association of Chief Police Officers."

VIDEO: BookTV Discussion of Rachel Carson "Silent Spring" (tags)
Paul Driessen is author of "Eco-Imperialism: Green Power, Black Death." Linda Lear is author of the biography "Rachel Carson: Witness for Nature." "We care more about our green lawns than about songbirds. Pesticides are persistent and can't be simply repressed. Birds and fish have injested pollutants. Humility and arrogance are part of our collective life story. We are not in control of nature and have to think of the whole of things, the interlocking nature of life.." RELATED LINK: "Trees have Standing" William O. Douglas, the longest serving Supreme Court justice (35 years), was an uncompromising civil libertarian and lover of life. Growing up in upstate New York, he grieved when lakes became cesspools. Lakes are not anti-freeze and mountains are more than landfill. Reducing nature to short-term profit is a blindness and path to anthropomorphic self-destruction. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_O._Douglas
Journalism, Redistribution and Social Generosity (tags)
"The earth does not belong to people; people belong to the earth." (chief Seattle)> Nature is not a free good, external or sink but our living mother and basis for future human life. Alternative economics and community centers could lead us out of the dystopia of imperial wars.
ALLIANCE PHILIPPINES: THE US-ARROYO REGIME IS A THE REAL CALAMITY TO THE PEOPLE (tags)
The latest twin disasters that hit the Philippines laid bare the true state of the country and the governance of US-Arroyo Regime: inept, corrupt and inutile. It lacked foresight for the good of the people because it is ruled by rapacity and greed. It favors big imperialist corporations and the heartless ruling class and only exploits and oppresses the people. Just look at its delayed reaction to the storms and its effect on the pole. Instead of conducting a comprehensive rescue, relief and rehabilitation drive in a systemic way what it did was to blame the people, blame the squatters and register all flood victims.
Hatemongering in America—the Post-Carter Dilemma Versus Conservative Opposition (tags)
The venom and vile the spews forth from America’s body politic is endemic of a people infected with fear and prejudice; but this learned hatred of a democratic agenda is not one based primarily on racism—yet hostility and resentment is very much its spirit. Rather this anima of animosity is one that seeks scapegoats for any instability felt or imagined of America’s middle and lower class realities, and all presumptions of a relatively naïve and misinformed society.

From Obsuristan to Absurdistan: Barbarism or Human Future (tags)
Individual security can be emphasized so global vision fades. Half-truths and fish stories carry the day. "Communism is oppression of many by man and capitalism is just the reverse." Our challenge is to reawaken wonder and interdependence, to consider the way of nonviolent resistance.
Ecological Justice Instead of Growth Economy for the Rich (tags)

As the neoconservative faction of the GW bush regime finally exits D.C., yet is now replaced by the neoliberal faction of the Obama/Clinton administration (not yet a regime until they commit war crimes like GW Bush did), is this simply the other face of our Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde split personality? Will Barack "Nice Guy" Obama now fix the human rights violations and ecological disasters of GW "Evil One" Bush to restore the collapsing U.S. empire? What does peak oil theory say to visions of future economic growth??

Contrary to U.S. claims about the "free" election in Iraq today, all Iraqis are prevented by Occupation troops to use their vehicles. The only vehicles allowed on the streets are the Occupiers' military vehicles(even bicycles are banned!). Hence, Iraqis are literally forced to "vote with their feet." There is no fitter commentary on the real nature of 'freedom' in Iraq than this unilateral Executive Order made by USA proconsul Z. Khalizaid(an ex-Oil company lobbyist!)

The Free Will (tags)
Does man really have any control over his own free will? Is it possible that any will that emanates from man is but a will that is under the influence of "the wills" of his cells? Could it be that the "wills" of the cells themselves are influenced by the "wills" of the molecules of his body cells, and that the "wills" of these molecules are just as inseparable from those of their atoms as are the "wills" of these atoms from those of their sub-atomic particles?
Economics for a Shrinking Planet (tags)

When is Political Violence Justified? (tags)
Today I am writing about a very sensitive subject. Indeed, at this point in time it is a very dangerous subject to write about. The subject is political violence: when is it justified and when is it not justified. There are many positions on this topic and like most topics there are extreme positions. One extreme position is that political violence is never justified. This is the belief held by pacifists and followers of Gandhi. At the other extreme we find believers in political violence ranging from Stalinists, some Anarchists, Fascists, to Imperialists, among others. These political ideologies generally support the use of violence to achieve their ends.

THIS IS WHAT YOUR 'FEAR' IS PROTECTING (tags)
Millions of Americans have read the Joseph Banister story. For those who may not know of this courageous individual, a short refresher is in order. Joseph was an IRS CID agent (Criminal Investigation Division) for a little over five years. In late 1996, he happened to hear some information about the nature of the income tax on a radio show. After two years of trying to prove the so-called "tax protesters" wrong regarding their beliefs, he finally concluded that the "tax honesty" individuals were indeed correct in their analysis of the income tax and its voluntary nature.
Tax Cuts, The Enron’s, The Rich, The Poor, And Human Nature… (tags)
“They are giving tax cuts to the rich and robbing the poor” lets put this age old debate regarding tax cuts into the simplest terms. The financial security of everyday people is essential to raising our children, grandchildren, providing good education, reducing crime. The wisest financial strategies need to be put in place above bipartisan politics or the passion of so many of us vigilantly opposed to class systems. A review of human nature and the cycles of people’s lives need to be taken into consideration when waging this big debate on economical models such as Bush’s tax cuts. The answer may be a little surprising though...

Environmentalism, Zionism and the Social Framing of Natural Open Spaces (tags)
The dominant Israeli discourses on nature and the environment act as elements that contribute to framing the public's conception of their social space. These environmental constructs, which partially stem out of, and partially become reintegrated into the Zionist nationalist discourse, are utilized by different social elements as a legitimation for both the creation of demarcated open 'natural' spaces, and the enforced retention of their 'pristine' state.
