  2. Corporate Media's Political Lust for General Suharto

    "President Suharto was a reforming autocrat," the New York Times gushed in 1998:

    While Mr. Suharto's recent record is mixed, his accomplishments were remarkable in the years after he took power after a failed coup attempt in 1965. He made the Indonesian economy one of the most open to foreign investment.

  3. No Plans to Release Tax Returns, Trump Aide Says

    What a shocker.

    At first he was going to release them, then he said he would not because he was under an audit (not that it would be legally prohibited in any way, Nixon released his while being audited) now his mouthpiece says Trump will not release them.

It would be like the stars in the sky being what has been considered "definite points of history" whereas the space between those stars is ...
  7. Conservative Socialist

    I'm a Conservative Socialist, a brand of socialism once popular in the 19th Century and rejected by Marx (whose own ideas have been... lacking). It fell out of favor during the 20th Century, replaced by Marxist-Leninism and Democratic Socialism, the term falling out of use and later becoming seemingly contradictory during the Cold War. In it's simplest terms, Conservative Socialism advocates a social ownership (sometimes by the workers, sometimes by the state) of the means of production, a strong ...

  8. The Doomsday Clock, Nuclear Weapons, Climate Change, and the Prospects for Survival

    "All Are Trapped By An Institutional Logic That Is Deeply Pathological and That Must Be Cured and Quickly If We Are Not To Put An End To The Human Race"

    As noted in November 2015 by the Arms Control Association. With the buildup of NATO forces near Russia's border, both sides believe "a war is no longer unthinkable". What one ...
