Mark Ames on Greece, the "1%" and decisionmaking

What is happening in Greece is of great relevance to us in the US. We may very well find ourselves in a similar situation. This piece by Mark Ames highlights how a powerful anti-democratic impulse drives the decision-making around spending there.

I've been following Ames for quite some time, from his days at the Moscow-based shock publication, Exile. As usual, I…

"What's Next?" Ask "What's Here?"

“What’s Next?” Ask “What’s Here?”

11-24-11

This is a death we are living through, the slow unfolding of multiple interlocking catastrophes, the deconstruction and reformation of every social and natural system you can name: politics, economics, social relations, culture, the eco-system, the human spirit. It is also a birth of something new. In fact, what is being birthed is a mass realization that there is no way to separate any of these realms from one another. At the deepest…

Algorithms and Red Wine: Is the 'digital hive' a soft totalitarian state?

As an authentic anarchist, I don't even follow my on rules. One more for the old fart: Joe Bageant (may he rest in peace), America's Redneck Prophet, author of Deer Hunting with Jesus: Dispatches from America's Class War, Rainbow Pie: A Redneck Memoir, and the posthumous Waltzing at the Doomsday Ball, addresses in this essay (one of his last) a number of issues that, I believe, are insufficiently acknowledged in today's "progressive" culture -…

"Happy Birthday Occupy Wall Street ... thoughts on Year One"

Fifteen years ago, I ran across a book, "100 Most Influential People in History," during one of my dalliances to my local Marin County bookstore.
