Democracy and COVID10 (tags)
Lockdown and curfews, state of emergency and tracing apps, compulsory testing and quarantines, serial stops, compulsory masks, short-time work and mass unemployment, waves of bankruptcies and extended poverty traps: the COVID-19 disaster has escalated the chronic crisis of capital utilization with falling profits.
Economics in the times of the coronavirus (tags)
Most people’s thinking is determined by the development of the Covid-19 crisis, the return of “the hour of executive power” (Gerhard A. Ritter), i.e. state of exception legislation, and the fears which it evokes as well as the economic measures in response to the health crisis.

On Health Care and So Much More, the Nordics Show that Equality Works (tags)
Forget the Noprdic diet. Try the Nordic tax plan. French, Japanese, and Scandinavian people don't live longer because they eat more nutritious food. They live longer because they live in more equal societies. The 26 community centers in Vancouver B.C. make all the difference.

Puerto Rico's government continues to cut public services as the economic crisis worsens. The Government Development Bank announced this week that the island's budget gap is $2 billion higher than expected. The prison system in Puerto Rico can no longer pay a vendor that feeds inmates. Some special education teachers are no longer being paid.

Abe calls Fukushima seawater contamination „negligible“ (tags)
At an official visit to Fukushima prefecture this Sunday, Japanese head of state Abe described radiation levels by the damaged nuclear reactors as minor and insignificant. The visit intended to persuade local mayors to return to their evacuated villages and culminated in a bathing session at Fukushima beach reminiscent of Obama´s lobbying for Caribbean drilling before the incident in the American-made reactors. Abe though allowed no photographers except on-site CCTV circuits as to keep it a national affair. The senior official stated on demand that the schedule had nothing to do with the fact that waste-water tanks on the damaged site were flushed into the Pacific Ocean several weeks ago.

AQUINO III, MURAD OF MILF HELD TALKS IN TOKYO FOR TWO HOURS (tags)
The Alliance News (AN) learned today through media reports from Manila that President Benigno Aquino III left the country unannounced on Thursday night to hold unprecedented talks with a Muslim rebel leader in Japan. According to AN, Mr. Aquino met for two hours with Murad Ebrahim, chair of the secessionist Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF), in a hotel near the Narita airport in Tokyo on Thursday evening, the first time a Philippine president has met face-to-face with a leader of the rebel group since on-and-off peace talks started 14 years ago. The MILF called Mr. Aquino?s effort a ?grand gesture? that gave ?a tremendous boost to the peace process.? Ghadzali Jaafar, the MILF political affairs chief, said it was ?a fruitful meeting.?

Obama and the illusion of a post-racial America (tags)
His candidacy is seen as an indication that racial barriers no longer exist. Many see progress in the fact that a black man can run a campaign in which race is incidental. Yet it’s taken Obama’s embrace of post-racialism to lend viability to his campaign. Some activists see him as the culmination of a trend of black leaders moving away from the communities they’ve traditionally served and closer to the political and corporate power that dominates the Democratic Party.

Stick a Fork in Global Warming (tags)
Research conducted from the mid 90s to 2005 by a team from the University of East Anglia shows that the North Atlantic Ocean is only absorbing half of the CO2 that it used to.(1) Another research project from the same University published in May, 2007 found that the southern oceans are no longer absorbing CO2 from the atmosphere. But to make things worse, they are starting to release it back into the air.(2)

Failed Logic and Rhetoric in the USA (tags)
Hillary Clinton and the neo-cons have much in common, their policies in relation to a continued presence in Iraq (oil theft) are similar as are their inept, amateurish and transparent attempts at rhetoric. Hillary’s latest offering was a statement to the effect that the Bush regime has dug a “deep hole” in Iraq that would take some time for “us” to emerge from! Notice the tactic of blame laying [political capital] while at the same time ensuring continued presence in Iraq on the basis that “we” would be rectifying all of Bush’s mistakes – very good Hillary, continued neo-colonial occupation and oil appropriation has nothing to do with it! Are Americans so stupid that they no longer recognise horseshit when they see or smell it?

Ludicrous Assumptions (tags)
Ludicrous assumptions are many but perhaps the most absurd is the assumption that those who steal the greater percentage of available wealth and continue to implement economic strategies designed to enslave are (somehow) safe and secure. From the Pacific islands to the pitch battles in Mainland China, exploited people of the world are retaliating against injustice.

Screwing Future Retirees...Again (tags)
Having failed to kill off Social Security with private accounts, conservatives in Congress are now trying to render it useless by raising the retirement age further—this time to 69. That may be okay for a Wall Street lawyer who runs half-marathons and spends two hours in the gym, but for the average American worker bee, employers have by that point pretty much ruined her or his health and body. Some “reform.” ----------------

Why do we have elections? Does it matter if there is no choice?

Hell no how can it matter when people don't actually matter at all, to either of the major political groups, or in any other context in the USA today. We are officially nothing. Welcome to the world of zero influence!

We now face a daunting task. An unpleasant and possibly fatal realization now confronts all of us in our daily lives.
