Ignoring the Limits (tags)

This crisis is only another warning shot of the current economic system and offers a window of opportunity to leave behind the neoliberal path of development taken since the end of the 1970s. The root of the problem is the economic model based on growth and exploitation of nature.

Mushy Center (tags)

In politics the tendency for candidates to move to the center when things get tough for them has become increasingly popular. The move helps them to side step and deflect heat coming at them from things that they have done or that have been done to them causing their popularity to wane. It also can appease a segment of folks that typically are not their constituency when members of their own base are looking at them unfavorably in hopes of making up lost ground regarding supporters. Come election time this can be especially important as it can help garner support. However, this still requires strong support from at least most of your base, and when they are fed up with a politician it is usually a good idea to get them behind that person to have not only guaranteed votes, but so as to look as if you are who you say you are. Bizarre schizophrenic personality shifts that try and say “I am no longer the person I was just four years ago” can seem – off.

Anti-Abortion & Anti-Gay Marriage Republican Cal Candidates; Feeble Democrats (tags)

In a very low voter turnout election, the June governor's primary, California Republicans voted for 2 businesswomen who are anti-abortion and anti-gay marriage, Meg Whitman for Governor and Carly Fiorina for US Senate. Meg Whitman's anti-immigrant ads would make Hitler proud. And we can be sure Democratic candidate for governor Jerry Brown, a lawyer, will not touch any of these issues as he is also reactionary, having promoted a military charter school while mayor of Oakland. Ms. Israel, Democratic Senator Barbara Boxer, will also be silent on these issues. This garbage is called the leadership of this backward country.

oday through news wires that only a fraction of wounded veterans who could get better benefits have applied in the two years since Congress, acting on concerns the military was cutting costs by downplaying injuries, ordered the Pentagon to review disputed claims. The JFAV is planning to sue the DVA for denying more than 17,000 Filipino World War II veterans of their lump sum claims. Out of the 36,000 who filed for the claims only 8,000 were given by the DVA.

Who Are You Working For? (tags)

Beginning with the campaigns for the 2008 elections political activism has hit peaks the likes of which haven’t been this consistent for decades. From all over the spectrum people are energized for causes close to their hearts. In doing so most end up selecting people they believe in to support for candidates in elections. Some of those candidates are sincere in their causes. We know not to expect perfect people nor every promise made kept, but we should count on some of promises, especially major ones, checked off.

Participation Matters (tags)

Each speech President Obama has delivered since his inauguration seems to paint a picture of change that is being created on the fly. I believe that – by nature of our humanity – we are all artists, and that we can all add a spontaneous stroke here or there to this potential masterpiece. But our current circumstances, as you will read in the below Op-Ed piece, present a serendipitous opportunity for public audiences to participate in community-based theater, and through that, to collaboratively address our social problems. If President Obama continues to publicly hold us accountable for re-creating a better America, this is one proven avenue for us to respond.

The Case for Socialism (tags)

The world today is undeniably chaotic — war, abject poverty, and unimaginable wealth exist side by side. In an attempt to explain the current social turmoil, some have resorted to religion and apocalypse, while others place the blame on the few bad apples that held positions of power as the economy slid into destitution. And then there are those who blame conspiracy, immigrants, or a society-wide lack of morality. All of the above explanations seem to be missing a crucial ingredient. A simple observation should be central to any explanation of the current economic crisis: There are huge surpluses (or overproduction) of houses, cars, food stuffs, and many other products that millions of people desperately need, but cannot afford to buy. This is the essence of the problem.

The Age of Austerity Dawns (tags)

The burst bubble of the New Economy should have been understood as a warning. Then as today, wishful thinking and greed blocked the view to reality. Recessions offer a period of welcome recovery. Losing the hectic turbo-capitalism is not really a great loss.

Who's Better Off? (tags)

I don't always agree with Ron Paul (but then who always agrees with any one individual, dittoheads excepted) but I appreciate his consistency in promoting true conservative ethics. Unlike nearly all republicans these days he doesn't merely steal the rhetoric to act as a cover for his agenda. He appears to actually believes in the ideological principles that are found so often in conservative rhetoric. As the republican party continues to fracture I think it is important to focus on individuals with some measure of integrity and honesty to contrast against the corrupt aristocrats running the government whom have not given any thought to benefiting people's lives nor shown any concern for the problems facing the people of the united states. -- tc

A Realistic Election Strategy the Left Can Really Get Behind (tags)

The US Left should decide today to become the most vociferous, activist constituency of the Bush campaign. Yeah, I know, it's a gobsmacker and jaw-dropper, but don't react – think. And consider: Bush has a good chance of winning. You want to back a winner, or a loser? Be realistic. And yeah, I know -- Bush is almost Hitler-like. No doubt about it. I hate him as much as you do. But do you want Kerry, an ardent militarist, and the richest man in the Senate, in the White House? He says he's going to spend more on the military than Bush, add 40,000 more troops to the Army, and insists the US remain the world's preeminent military power. He wants to exercise US power boldly, says he won't wait for a green light from allies or the UN to use military force, and has articulated a doctrine of preventive war. That sounds pretty Hitler-like to me.

Kerry vs. Kerry-lite (tags)

As for Iraq, if Kerry has a problem with Bush, it's that he didn't drag France, Germany and Russia into the war, preferring to strike a grabby, it's all mine, pose, rather than the "let's divide up the loot" approach the Democrats favor. Apparently, a gang rape is better than a rape carried out by a lone assailant, which, I gather, would make a gang rapist a rapist-lite, and therefore more worthy of our backing than a rapist who goes it alone. But, for the record, Washington hasn't gone it alone in Iraq, managing to cobble together a coalition, though one lacking France, Germany and Russia, whose backing, in some perverted twist of reasoning, is supposed to have invested the rape of Iraq with legitimacy. Apparently, if you can lure other renowned rapists into a gang rape, it gives the whole sordid affair moral weight.

You can still influence the Democratic nomination process in a meaningful way. The answer is to back Representative Dennis Kucinich, who has vowed to remain in the race through the convention.

Why the 'Captain America crowd' is on the defensive (tags)

It helps prove what some have speculated in the past — that the administration benefits from what psychologists call “projection”. In a stressful time such as this, the public subconsciously projects boldness onto rashness and competence onto foolish behaviour, because to see the leaders' mistakes in the harsh light of reality would spark a mass panic.

Why This Free Enterprise Democracy Is Not (tags)

A fresh look at why we do not have free enterprise or democracy, but instead a morass of corrupt industry and politics, awash with dubious deals and reckless arrogance. Quality of competition in industry and politics steadily deteriorates, along with the quality of life, for most people and other natural species. While reigning rules of business and politics fan the degeneration, little can change for the better. People have endless reason for skepticism and protest, knowing there are better ways, far out of reach, or so it may seem.
