An open space for global conversation
"Israel's fear of rising Islamists is hard to swallow, when every sign is that democracy in Israel is leading it towards right-wing religious extremism. It might be useful here to remind ourselves that the parties that took over in most of Europe after World War II were defined by a right-wing Christian ethos, and most of the parties that rose to power after the transformation of Central and Eastern Europe were also religious. All of us need to support these Arab revolutions…

"Right-wingers tend to be less intelligent than left-wingers, and people with low childhood intelligence tend to grow up to have racist and anti-gay views, says a controversial new study.
Conservative politics work almost as a 'gateway' into prejudice against others, say the Canadian academics.
The paper analysed large UK studies which compared childhood intelligence with political views in adulthood across more than 15,000 people."

"From schools to prisons, outsourcing government's works typically ends with cronyism, waste and unaccountability"
The 1% have rigged, & continue to rig, the entire global economy to enrich & empower themselves at the expense of the 99%. It's a ruthless Class War, & unless we fight back hard, & win, we & our descendants…Continue

"We’re indulging in too much banker bashing, wailed the Times and Financial Times last week.
Their well paid commentators should pay a bit more attention to public opinion. A YouGov poll for the Sunday Times yesterday found the public had lots of appetite for more banker bashing."
Bankers STOLE the…

"Now that Syria is again the only one in a position to provide another version of events, the lie industry set up for this operation is back in full gear. Once again the sole source recognized by the West and the Gulf is the self-proclaimed Syrian Observatory of Human Rights, based in London and led by the Muslim Brotherhood. No evidence is submitted; a few blurred photos, the juxtaposition of images showing demonstrations and explosions, and some anonymous testimonials will…

"Not only because police violence occurs often and in many areas of protests but now that livestreamers are being targeted we need to get more eyes on the street."

"Prosecutors like Eric Schneiderman need cops on the beat to put financial crooks behind bars. But thanks to Bush, these cops are missing in action."
The 1% look after their own - until it's expedient not to!

"Every day people in the Occupy movement are fighting big banks to keep families in this country from being foreclosed upon. Fighting to keep another person from being homeless, and from another housing unit becoming vacant. Fighting to change the narrative, to make this national blight more visible, more known.
And that's what spreading the above image can do. Make this injustice more known or understood in a way the mind-numbing statistics cannot, perhaps inspiring…

"Government Misrepresents Employment Picture
While everyone is popping the champagne corks over the fact that the Bureau of Labor Statistics says that 243,000 jobs were created in January, the facts are slightly different."
When you can't trust or…

"The uproariously named “Reason.tv” has a video out entitled “Why Geezers Are the True Enemy of the Occupy Movement” featuring Veronique de Rugy. In the video, Ms. de Rugy explains to young occupiers that the elderly have done deplorably well in the preceding few decades. This makes Nonna and Nonno the natural enemies of the young and should therefore be stripped of Social Security and Medicare. In her defense, she does stop short of suggesting they be taken to the nearest…

"We have met the enemy. It is stupidity. We can’t afford it anymore, no more fear, no more lies, no more greed. Eventually, the way we are going, do I have to finish this? There is going to be a price to pay for betraying America."
Does the 1% actually own the USA's ass, & use it for their evil ends?

"I love talk of "shared" sacrifice by well-heeled assholes who have forgotten what it's like to sweat their finances. Because nothing says "I'm sharing in your pain" like fighting efforts to repair our nation's debt by having those who can actually afford it carry the load, while pretending that no one else is "sacrificing."
We see this with the well-compensated media elite, we obviously see it with the selfish-asshole segment of the one percent. And, of course, we see it…

"The hypocrisy of the war on drugs is outrageous when compared to the amount of drug trafficking that benefits the CIA and international banking system. The son of a convicted notorious mobster, John Gotti Jr, when asked in court if the family still dealt drugs cracked, "No, we can't compete with the government."
Today in Afghanistan, American troops have been seen guarding poppy fields used to make heroin. Those fields were all but wiped out by 2001…
