The Collapse of Western Democracy — Paul Craig Roberts

The Collapse of Western Democracy By Paul Craig Roberts Democracy no longer exists in the West. In the US powerful private interest groups, such as the military-security complex, Wall Street, the Israel Lobby, agribusiness and the extractive industries of energy, timber and mining, have long exercised more control over government than the people. But now […]

The Brexit reshuffles world geopolitics by Thierry Meyssan

While the world Press is searching for ways to re-start the reconstruction of Europe, still without Russia and now without the United Kingdom, Thierry Meyssan considers that nothing can now prevent the collapse of the system. However, he points out, what is at stake is not the European Union itself, but the institutions which enable […]

US, UK, and EU, Are Now Dictatorships

How can it be that in virtually all of the Presidential-candidate head-to-head Democratic versus Republican polling that was done of both Democratic and Republican candidates during the primaries, the preferred Democratic candidate against any one of the Republican candidates was Bernie Sanders, but he almost certainly won’t be that Party’s nominee (and there’s more on that here); and the preferred […]

Western State Terrorists Slander Putin

Washington and London are all-out to demonize Russian leader Vladimir Putin. Only days after a British judge insinuated that Putin had ordered the murder of a former Russian intelligence agent, the BBC and the American Treasury Department were accusing the Russian president of financial corruption. Meanwhile, in the world of hard facts Washington and London are guilty of state […]

Julian Assange: the Untold Story of an Epic Struggle for Justice

The siege of Knightsbridge is both an emblem of gross injustice and a gruelling farce. For three years, a police cordon around the Ecuadorean embassy in London has served no purpose other than to flaunt the power of the state. It has cost £12 million.

British Unions Burdizzo Self

What that something is, can neither be fathomed nor speculated upon, but the message will be loud and clear: Colorado Oysters a la Unionese for the Oligarchs as hors d'ouvre.   Public sector […]

The Fascism of ‘Socialist Randianism’ is The Currency of Our Times

  It’s surprising and distressing to no end that as a radical leftist without any deep theoretically based ideological roots, I find myself, these days, drawing inspiration and hope from a Nigel Farage (UKIP) rather than a Martin Schulz(SPD). Or, for that matter on this side of the pond, from Ron Paul as opposed to […]
