Last night another sick-minded, pathetic, inexcusable Islamist terror strike occurred (at least, we believe it’s Islamist like most absolutely horrendous terror attacks these days, what a religion…). Once again, the target was situated in Europe: Manchester, England. But what is really behind this? Continue reading
Of all the politically relevant videos I have watched, this must be the best. If you don’t yet understand the root of all our problems, after this video you will, and you will have a powerful weapon in your arsenal to bring others into the light. This is the education of a lifetime. What better time than a bit of Sunday to invest one hour of your time to get the education of a lifetime?
In this video, Richard Wolff, whose information-packed eight minutes I shared with you yesterday, gives a clear and cogent critique of our awful current system and a clear cogent alternative. To summarize, currently, we leave the power of decision-making to a handful of self-serving people in the private sector who then throw us under the bus. The solution: make the economic system as democratic as we would like our political system to be. This will end the plutocracy and its constant gnawing on whatever democratic political institutions and justice-minded laws we erect.
What I have just described would be sufficient reason to mark this video as a must-see. But there is a lot more, too much to summarize briefly. You really are best off to watch the video (or listen to it) yourself:

If you don’t have the time to watch this hugely informative speech by seasoned economist Richard Wolff right now, then do spend a minute reading my below commentary: Continue reading
U.S. policy in the Middle East since the 1950s:
- Who isn’t for us is against us.
- Oil, oil, oil.
- Lies, lies, lies. (remember Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction, for example?)
- War mongering for war profiteering and for painting our worst politicians as heroes.
- Different parts of the government pursue different goals, even supporting foreign groups which fight EACH OTHER.
- We created Al-Qaeda.
- We created ISIS.
- Islamist terrorism as a whole is mostly our creation.
- War, war, war, terrorism, deaths and refugees galore.
- A huge portion of the weapons (even chemical ones) are supplied by us.
All this in a region which is a powder keg because Islam has never undergone a modernizing reform (only the reverse: fundamentalist turn-back-the-clock reforms) and therefore is steeped in medieval mentality with all its superstition and barbarity.
Bravo! (←sarcasm) Continue reading

Report: Despite US Propaganda, Fidel Castro Beloved Worldwide
(Note: if the video to which this article links gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Despite US Propaganda, Fidel Castro Beloved Worldwide”)
This week, we have seen despicable footage of people celebrating the death of another human being. Personally, I find death from “old age” after a few decades on Earth – which is barely enough for most people to even grow up – a great tragedy built into the human condition and something we should perhaps do something about instead of constantly fighting among ourselves. To celebrate someone’s death, I must be certain he or she was a mass murderer, torturer, or such. I cannot establish this state of affairs for Castro. Continue reading

The post to which I am linking below is a fine acknowledgment of a true American hero, a politician who has represented us the people during decades of advancing corruption in politics. I only must take exception to its endorsing of the corporate media’s lie that he “lost” his current campaign. Doing so only helps the establishment, even if that help is not intended. Any of us who adopt and echo the media’s newspeak should stop doing so. Continue reading
