Occupy Southern California Gas (tags)

The poor and disabled are dying in the cold in Southern California because Wall Street tycoon Michael Allman is using his position as head of Southern California Gas to cut service to the disabled, requiring payment of oppressive fees and penalties to restore power.

U.S. IMPERIALISM IN THE PHILIPPINES (tags)

After more than a century of brutal colonization of the Philippines, U.S. troops continue to battle Moro insurgents and the New People's Army guerillas to protects its investments, support the bloody oligarchs headed by the Arroyo clique, and preserve its neocolonial stranglehold. The U.S. public should wake up to demand that Obama stop its support of the Arroyo regime and withdraw U.S. troops. E. San Juan's two books might help inform the US public of what's going on in the Philippines today.

E-Book of Tarpley's "Obama: Postmodern Coup The Making of a Manchurian Candidate (tags)

This book exposes Obama, but it does so from a standpoint that is fundamentally different from almost all other critical studies seen so far. The basic thesis shared by the authors of this book is that Obama is a right-winger, an elitist, a creature of Wall Street, and a deeply troubled personality, running far to the right of his main opponent, Sen. Clinton, on all major issues, including the two critical areas of economics and foreign policy.

Australian PM criticises Barak Obama (tags)

John Howard, known internationally as a Bush lackey, shameless coward, racist and abandoner of Australian citizens in trouble, today levelled a criticism at U.S. Presidential candidate, Barak Obama. The ‘aluminium tubing’ Prime Minister stated that Obama’s Iraq policy would “completely destabilise and destroy Iraq”. Howard seems ‘completely’ oblivious to the FACT that his participation in the illegal invasion and occupation of Iraq has ALREADY COMPLETELY DESTABILISED AND DESTROYED Iraq!

The Failures of Faculty in Tough Times (tags)

t's possible that this watch-list strategy sprang fresh from the minds of the Young Conservatives of Texas, but it's more likely they were influenced by the national group Students for Academic Freedom and leftist-turned-right-wing-activist David Horowitz. The strategy is simple: Rather than attack specific professors for holding views critical of the dominant culture and its institutions, better to claim that the universities are dominated by these critical intellectuals who are crowding out other perspectives.

No to Angelides and Schwarzenegger! Yes to Janice Jordan! (tags)

Angelides criticized Schwarzenegger for his praise for the racist anti-immigrant vigilantes called the “Minutemen” while in the same breath calling for a "guest worker" program that would create a new class of super-exploited worker with no political rights. Under the same type of program in the past U.S. bosses often failed to even pay Mexican workers for their hard labor. The fact that Angelides and the Democrat Party are now calling for this kind of legalization of indentured servitude place them firmly in the same racist camp as Schwarzenegger.

Need for theory (tags)

A profound social need exists today for critical theory. Not theory as a separate sphere—there are already too many separate spheres. Not theory, as direction of praxis—often praxis knows how to manage very well on its own. Not theory as a closed language of a clerical caste, but as an element of revolutionary political action for whomever would like another time.

Without revolutionary theory, as Lenin said, there cannot be any revolutionary praxis. This is a small contribution to the formation of that theory in practice.
