The Rich's Deal (tags)
The richest percent of the world's population accounts for fifteen percent of global emissions, which is twice as much as the entire poorer half of the world's inhabitants together are responsible for CO2. Once again, the rich countries benefit from the deal negotiated in Glasgow.
Power excess without end: Politics suffers from "long covid" (tags)
"Whoever should once play with the state of emergency to restrict freedom will find my friends and me on the barricades in defense of democracy, and this is meant quite literally," Willi Brandt once said. And what are the citizen sheep of today doing? They are lining up for their second vaccination injection.
Remembrance culture and the Cold War (tags)
"No to racism, anti-Semitism, the production of images of the enemy, and the slandering of history!" Russia is once again declared the enemy, but at a rapid pace now so is China. The new Cold War seems unstoppable. Enemy images are marked by a simple binary world view.

„Will and not Can“ (tags)
I got mail from Gewindeberg. At least that is what it says it is. Or was. There was no return address provided, with the explanation that it was not from this world. But it was addressed to me and arrived as a letter on a few sheets of paper, though without a signature, with the explanation that this was the only way to achieve authenticity on a spoofed channel. It carried a stamp displaying a view through a microscope. This is so unbelievable that I have taken some time to decide what to make of it. But before that, I am going to publish it for you to come to your own judgements. Here you are.
GAG Group Declares WOD (tags)
I was approached by a man getting out of a car. “Sorry, would you like to report from an unique event in a very special place?” – “How did you know how you would find me here?” – “You wrote about taking this road. It is about a fresh proposal how to end the war and revive the revolution.” – “For that purpose always. How?” – “Be right back tomorrow and take you there for a formal visit on condition of a blind dislocation agreement. We make sure that not even your followers can check where you go.” The darkened windows of the spooky vehicle turned out to be so for inside-out looks as well. I was dropped at a small parking and told to follow the chalk marks into the forest. No digital devices allowed. Instead I received a big old-fashioned key to a thick wood box in the car, and a torch.

Soft Science, Hard Time: The Expanding Sexual Regulatory State As Facilitated By Science- (tags)
Periodic social upheavals as a result of moral panic seem to be the norm for humanity, with large segments of society reacting, or overreacting, with almost virally propagated outrage to perceived threats. The moral panic of our current age, an obsession with sexual inviolability, illustrates our continued susceptibility to emotional and irrational fears.

It's a Business (pt 2) (tags)
Money can so easily change circumstances. Just a little bit can help ease the stress of worrying about how the rent or mortgage will be paid on any given month. A small amount extra can make the difference between getting your kid what they need for school or not, like a new or even used computer or some school clothes. With just a few extra in the way of cash, there may not have to be the monthly juggling act of figuring which bills to pay and which to put off. And making up such seemingly miniscule increments of ground regarding getting current on bills and/or debt can really help take a load off a person's mind, if only until the next paycheck. Most of us have been there, and if not probably will at some point or another in life.

Being involved in harassment no matter who you are or where it happens can be difficult and then some. If it's really deep it can feel as though you're in a situation with few options and/or recourse to getting your head above the problem. You can feel trapped without a clue as to whom to trust within the situation you're in, or as though there are no people you can trust or rely on. You may feel like there is no real way to survive the situation you're in, but to quit, leave, flunk out, stop, drop out or whatever applies to your situation.
Stolen Haitian Relief Money (tags)
What We Want Them to Say, What They Want Them to Do (tags)
Money is a strong pull, there can be no denying that. There are few people that can resist its lure. I don't refer to money to purchase the basic necessities; there is almost no other way to get those in the world we live. I mean beyond that – after people have the necessities taken care of. The draw of a little more comfort, convenience or even luxury that only money can provide causes people to move towards the cash before they even know they've taken the steps. It's part of being human.
Proof Is What Counts (tags)
Politicians have a tendency to make promise upon promise come election time, and that's to be expected. They are competing with one another and that competition brings about the need to discuss those things they would like to come to pass as though they already have come to pass. It seems to bring about the need to discuss what they most wanted to happen as if it actually had occurred, whether it has or not. The competition tends to bring about the need to blame the other person instead of confessing some of your own faults.

Editorial: Jan Perry's Latest Offensive Against the South Central Farm Land (41st & Alameda) (tags)
Tomorrow morning, October 15, City Council is scheduled to vote on Jan Perry's proposal that would release developer Ralph Horowitz of the 2.6-acre green space requirement and make it easier for him to sell the property. And so the future of the 14-acre plot of land, at 41st and Alameda is once again under dispute. Previously the site of the famous South Central Farm, once known as the largest urban farm in the country, if the not world, the land has become the most disputed plot of real-estate in the city. (At the time of its demolition circa 2006, there was a massive community mobilization to save it, and the goal of the farmers to reclaim the land has not died.)
Pay For Your Own Security Guards (tags)
Starting at the end of World War II our nation’s race to outpace, outgun and implement checks for every new threat developed under the Soviet Union moved fast, hard and with narrow focus. Every inch of our nation’s military, espionage apparatus and government was tinged with red menace paranoia. Apparently it was not hard to abandon the perspective of our founding fathers regarding the use of our military overseas and overburden the map with proof of our overreach. We did not see it as that at the time, we became focused on, and at times way too caught up with, out-doing our mortal enemy the USSR.

What Obama Isn't Telling American Workers (tags)

The “Great Recession” has caused tectonic shifts internationally, with outcomes that will dramatically change the lives of millions of people in the U.S. and beyond.

WINTER SOLDIER: Iraq & Afghanistan (tags)
WINTER SOLDIER: Iraq & Afghanistan, Eyewitness Accounts of the Invasions, March 13-16, 2008, Washington, D.C. In 1776, Thomas Paine wrote: "These are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of his country; but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman." In 1971, a courageous group of veterans exposed the criminal nature of the Vietnam War in an event called Winter Soldier. Once again, we will demand that the voices of veterans are heard. Once again, we are fighting for the soul of our country. We will demonstrate our patriotism by speaking out with honor and integrity instead of blindly following failed policy. Winter Soldier is a difficult but essential service to our country. Winter Soldier: Iraq and Afghanistan will feature testimony from U.S. veterans who served in those occupations, giving an accurate account of what is really happening day in and day out, on the ground. The four-day event will bring together veterans from across the country to testify about their experiences in Iraq and Afghanistan - and present video and photographic evidence. In addition, there will be panels of scholars, veterans, journalists, and other specialists to give context to the testimony. These panels will cover everything from the history of the GI resistance movement to the fight for veterans' health benefits and support. www.ivaw.org

All of these lineages, together with those of several chiefly lines connected to all of the Hawaiian Islands, converge in the genealogy of Edmund Keli'i Silva, Jr., as confirmed by the House of Nobles of the Kingdom of Hawai'i. As a result, these same nobles sought out Mr. Silva and asked his to serve as the next reigning monarch of the Hawaiian Islands in an effort to restore the kingdom to its once independent state.

But beyond war issues, sometimes extraordinary events can occur within the US, life threatening events. Has so-called 'realpolitik' now effectively denied Americans the right to asylum, regardless of their claim's legitimacy. And there have been legitimate cases, including one based upon torture and attempted murder, not war.

By and large the fire of anti-Semitism has not singed most Iraqis. The anti-Semitic chants heard round the Arab world have not marred popular demonstrations here. Only once during this reporter’s three-week stay in Iraq were specifically anti-Jewish chants heard.
