The Corona New Speak (tags)
The virus as enemy and subject A very conspicuous phenomenon for rhetorically evading any political responsibility is, on the one hand, to shift it to the population by dutifully supporting and participating in all measures and, on the other hand, to speak of the virus as an acting subject bearing responsibility.
Al Nakba 2020: Girding up the loins of the mind By Zahir Ebrahim, Project Humanbeingsfirst (tags)
The way Palestine was stolen from the Muslim goy, at the barrel of a gun, is also the only way it shall be recovered. Words that capture profound thoughts always lay the foundation of all human endeavors, both hegemonic driven by primacy instinct, and benevolent driven by altruism instinct. These two facets of mankind have been at odds with each other from the very first creation of man, and shall continue until the end of mankind. And at every juncture when these have intersected, ironically, it has always been the club that has subdued hegemony, not benevolent words, not protest marches, not divestment scams, and certainly not matams (laments). Primacy only understands the club!

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 ?

Another Killing Spree in Mesopotamia: “Pacifying” Mosul (tags)
In words and deeds, happenings in Iraq are chillingly redolent of Nazi Germany. Neighborhoods walled in and “cleansed” of Sunnis, others of Shias, Christians and Iraq's richness of minorities ... people who have lived together and inter-married since time immemorial. The distinctions were imposed with the incoming tanks and troops - divide and rule writ large. In Falluja, Goebbel's ghost walks tall. The residents even have their own identifying arm patch to prove it. And it has certainly been cleansed, in uncountable thousands - exactly how many unknown, since in the words of General Tommy Franks it is not “productive” to count Iraqi deaths.

As for Ireland, I want to know what kind of people live there today. Was the Potato Famine a plot to uproot and supplant a population?

What is anarchism? (tags)
Anarchism is a political theory which aims to create anarchy, "the absence of a master, of a sovereign." [P-J Proudhon, What is Property , p. 264] In other words, anarchism is a political theory which aims to create a society within which individuals freely co-operate together as equals. As such anarchism opposes all forms of hierarchical control - be that control by the state or a capitalist - as harmful to the individual and their individuality as well as unnecessary.
