Corona vaccine development - they prefer not to ask about risks and side effects (tags)

Thousands or even millions could be vaccinated on the basis of "emergency approval." We will probably have to live with the virus. The current strategy of damaging measures until a vaccine is available is a bumpy path with incalculable risks, side effects and visible collateral damage.

Growth Criticism and Reduced Working Hours (tags)

Today's growth critics speak of the necessity of a post-growth society, a "renunciation society" or at least of a "green" capitalist model... A political transformation process is necessary. The economist John Maynard Keynes dreamt of a time when his grandchildren would only have 15hr wk.

Capitalism as a Religion (tags)

Criticism of Economists (tags)

Economists with their models could predict the values of economic variables but did not foresee the greatest worldwide economic crisis in 80 years. Mechanical-deterministic neoclassicism is a self-contained theoretical model offering simple answers.

Meditations on God, Faith and the Enlightenment (tags)

Christmas should be a time for the poor, for restructuring the economy so it does not only benefit a few and so public necessities like education, health care and housing are rights and not privileges. We are living in a dark age when financiers deny their responsibility.

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.

"Israel's Policy Promotes Anti-Semitism" (tags)

Criticism is Unlikely (tags)

Suicidal Statecraft and Intrigues in Washington (tags)

Suicidal statecraft. Sadly for President George W Bush's place in history but-much more important-ominously for America's future, it has lately seemed as if that adroit phrase might be applicable to the politices pursued by the US since the cataclysm of 911

On Idleness (tags)

Uncontrolled capitalism proved to be a completely wrong track toward the end of the 19th century. The governing church of work does everything so people only have time and strength for two things in life: work and job-hunting. The 30-hour work week could be a life-giving goal.

Annulling Debts as a Great Step (tags)

"The goal must be redefined beyond goods production and abstract labor, beyond the market and the state.. The great step of debt cancellation occurs when the burden can no longer be endured. The new finance capita-lism is a bubble and debt capitalism.."

THE SILENCING OF DISSENT - How do they get away with it? (tags)

To the Christian and to the entire non-Jewish world, Jews say this: 'You will apologise for Jewish suffering again and again and again.

Accusing Israel’s critics of anti-Semitism will have dangerous consequences (tags)

...a man asked “How can one support justice for the Palestinians without being branded anti-Semitic?” Before I had a chance to respond, a woman stood up and said “So what if they call you anti-Semitic. The first time it may feel bad, but hey, trust me, you’ll get used to it. We all have!”

ANTI-ZIONIST HATE MACHINE (tags)

On "Hating America" (tags)

It was bound to happen sooner or later. Bernie Weiner and I open a progressive web site ("The Crisis Papers" [www.crisispapers.org]) and write a few dissenting essays, and sure enough, we get an e-mail such as this: Are you people stoned? ...

Poor Sean Hannity (tags)

Well, what can you expect from an immature groupie? Every time he tries to think, his face reflects the pain of the effort. But he really showed his emptiness recently when he said that criticism of the United States failing to guard the Iraqi National Museum was — you guessed it — just left-wing soreheads who are mad that President Bush's war has been so successful.

Write LAT on Mandela censorship (tags)

The Los Angeles Times willfully failed to make any mention of Nelson Mandela's criticism of GWB and Tony Blair. Write them at letters@latimes.com
