  • Latest UN report on Venezuela is not remotely honest (Part 2) October 18, 2020
    On September 15, UN investigators ( the so called “Mission”) published a 411 page report  about the human rights situation in Venezuela.[1]  Part 1 of my analysis of the report focused on its gross dishonesty about opposition leader Leopoldo Lopez. The Mission reviewed his career since 2000 but never mentioned his proud participation in coup […]

  • Most Germans Want US Military to Leave the Country October 15, 2020
    Unlike their elected riulers, most Germans don’t want to be part of the nuclear ‘theater’ Trump, once again doing the right thing for the wrong reasons, wants to pull US troops out of Germany because Germany doesn’t spend enough on “defence”. The German population tend to like it but don’t like his reasons. And, as […]

    The proposed hate crime clauses of the Scottish Crime Bill are being redrawn because of claims they will criminalize ‘legitimate acts of expression’.

  • Memories of Voter Suppression October 12, 2020
    Back in July 1962, when, according to Donald Trump, America was “great,” I was in the Deep South, working to register Black voters.  It was a near-hopeless project, given the mass disenfranchisement of the region’s Black population that was enforced by Southern law and an occasional dose of white terrorism. It all started in the […]

  • This Tyrant Feeds Peacocks October 10, 2020
    India is burning. In the months from March to May the news and social media were flooded with heart rending stories and images of the trauma of out-of state workers who lost their livelihood overnight when the coronavirus lock down was imposed without adequate notice.

  • The Pandemic Has Given Organics a Big Boost—but Most Profits Aren’t Flowing To Small Producers
    When COVID-19 forced communications consultant Kyle Freund and his wife to work from home this spring, the Madison, Wisconsin couple and their 5-year-old daughter began seeking out organic produce from small local farms. They stopped patronizing large supermarkets, shopped only at the co-op, and subscribed to a community supported agriculture (CSA) program through a nearby […]

  • COVID-19 Was Created in the Wuhan Laboratory and Is Now in the Hands of the Chinese Military
    COVID-19, which is killing and infecting people all over the world, is not a naturally occurring virus; instead, it was created in Wuhan, in a level-4 biosafety laboratory. Not only Chinese, but also French and US scientists contributed to the production of this "chimera," an organism created in a lab.

  • Intensive Farming Worldwide Threatens Paris Climate Accord, Report Says
    The spread of intensive farming is threatening to jeopardise the world’s chances of meeting the terms of the Paris agreement on the climate crisis, as the increasing use of artificial fertiliser and growing populations of livestock are raising the concentration of a key greenhouse gas to levels far beyond those seen naturally.

    The terms ‘anarchist’ and ‘anarchism’ are returning to the center stage of political lingo in the twenty-first century. To quote my own article on Center for a Stateless Society: President Donald Trump has repeatedly attempted to associate Black Lives Matter with anarchists and anarchism. He has tweeted such threatening posts as just the phrase “Anarchists, we see...

    Di Cayce Jamil. Originale pubblicato il 6 ottobre 2020 con il titolo Towards Methodological Situationism. Traduzione di Enrico Sanna. Gli anarchici col tempo hanno finito per assorbire alcune parti del pensiero proprio dell’economia, l’antropologia, la psicologia e la macro-sociologia, ma hanno incredibilmente trascurato la micro-sociologia. La cosa stupisce visto che al cuore dell’analisi anarchica troviamo...
