  • Instability and chaos in the Middle East are the axis of US-Israeli power politics May 23, 2017
    Nasir Khan, May 23, 2017 All those who are interested in understanding the quagmire of war, violence, the victimisation of Palestinians by Israel, rampant abuse of human rights, etc., in which the whole region of the Middle East is enmeshed will readily appreciate the soundness of the views of President Rouhani. What he says is […]

  • do you follow? May 23, 2017
    – ‘In literary matters, Ezra Pound advised against accepting the opinion of those “who haven’t themselves produced notable work,” and it is advice I have been privileged to follow’ – Seamus Heaney in his 1995 acceptance speech for the Nobel prize – Ezra Pound’s open support of Mussolini’s fascism mirrors Heidegger’s love-affair with Nazism – […]

  • Is shooting at Venezuelan cops “unconstitutional” or even a big deal? May 20, 2017
    A Miami Herald report entitled “In secret recording, Venezuelan general pushes for snipers to control demonstrators” only vaguely alludes to the fact that opposition protesters have been killing people. In the seventeenth paragraph of the story the Herald states “While it is not known where the gunfire originated that killed the four demonstrators on Monday […]

We can sit […]

  • Averting Climate Chaos April 27, 2017
    The incredible rate of recent warming is largely due not to the usual suspect, carbon dioxide, but to the build-up of super-potent methane, which traps 80 to 100 times more heat in the atmosphere than carbon dioxide.

  • What Really Happened in Syria? April 27, 2017
    The U.S. continues to use DU weapons in the region, at least in attacks on ISIS. Tomahawk missiles, a Raytheon profit center, have long been suspected of delivering a DU payload. So President Trump’s loosing of 59 Tomahawk missiles on Al Shayrat Airfield was answering a chemical weapons attack with a chemical weapons attack. And […]

  • The GOP in Sickness and Ill Health April 27, 2017
    Two days later, Trump was at it again, beating his chest and tweeting like a vengeful god who bruises easily, this time directing his tirades at the real villains—his fellow Republicans, right-wing think tanks and especially the roughly three dozen members of the so-called “Freedom Caucus,” the most extreme conservatives in the House.

  • Undermining Our Survival April 27, 2017
    As I mentioned, the policies being formulated and enacted are drawn from the playbook of the most reactionary fringe of the Republican establishment. The abject service to private wealth and power is accompanied with an authoritarian and fundamentalist program to transform U.S. society

  • A Legislated Minimum Wage Inhibits Low-Income Entrepreneurship May 23, 2017
    There are many different arguments against the Minimum Wage. One less prominent criticism of the idea is the fact that it restricts entrepreneurship: especially from those with low incomes. It is worth conceptually exploring how this happens. To begin with, when a Minimum Wage is instituted, there are layoffs.
