Save Our Soil – Save the World

Our current system of food production involves monoculture, the tilling of soil, and the adding of biology-destroying chemical crutches. This destructive dis-empowering process is slowly decreasing the Earth’s health, and our health along with it. We need to be more expansive on our view of health – without our natural world thriving, then we have no chance.

Politics as Usual Isn’t Working: It’s Time for a Revolution

Falling life expectancy. Rising economic inequality. Power concentrated in hands unelected elites. An environment poisoned by profits. For some, the crises present day America faces are existential. As such, the political response needs to be commensurate to the moment and nothing short of a root and branch political revolution. For others, this revolutionary impulse on the Right and Left spells disaster.

The Disaster of Utopian Engineering

The problem is that our utopian engineers in their giddy dismantling of an economic and democratic system, as well as their draining of state resources in the wars they prosecute overseas, have dynamited the tools that could save us. They have left us no option but to revolt and remove them from power.

So The US Is Invading Iraq Again

Though It won’t be as exciting as last time. If the initial invasion of Iraq was a violent sexual assault by a stranger in a dark alley, this one is more like an abusive husband raping his wife and then making her cook him dinner. But it is just as much a violent violation of personal sovereignty in both instances.

Kill GDP to Help Save the Planet

There’s a problem with America’s favorite statistic: GDP. It avoids pretty much everything that’s actually, truly, really good for society, including the importance of robust ecology. Still, it’s the biggest measure of what’s happening with the economy and used around the world, even though horribly flawed.

The Impeachment’s Moral Hypocrisy

If our political leaders truly want to restore the rule of law and uphold the constitution, then why didn’t they impeach Bush and Obama (and Trump for his ongoing complicity) for starting illegal wars, assassinating U.S. citizens without due process, carrying out illegal torture, mass spying on the U.S. citizens, and many other serious human rights abuses.

Why Everything is Fu**ed

We all slid out of the womb an itty bitty helpless information sponge into a world full of mentally ill giants who couldn’t wait to fill our tiny skulls with all of their inner demons. And now everything, understandably, is fucked.

Reconciling Ecological Imperatives and the Right to Food at a Time of Bio-Ethical Crisis

Richard Falk discusses an extremely disturbing evolving situation by labeling it ‘the first bio-ethical crisis to confront humanity.’ It is bio-ethical in the primary sense that the challenges posed are fundamentally directed at the wellbeing and even survival of the species as a whole, and this crisis has an ethical character because knowledge and resources exist to overcome these challenges, and yet action is not being taken.

The Great American Shakedown

The U.S. Democratic Party and its liberal supporters are perplexed. They presented hours of evidence of an impeachable offense, and yet it has made no difference-public opinion is not moved. The liberal class and the Democratic Party leadership have failed to understand that they, along with the traditional Republican elites, have squandered their credibility. No one believes them. And no one should.

The Five Corrupt Pillars of Climate Change Denial

The fossil fuel industry, political lobbyists, media moguls and individuals have spent the past 30 years sowing doubt about the reality of climate change – where none exists. The latest estimate is that the world’s five largest publicly-owned oil and gas companies spend about US$200 million a year on lobbying to control, delay or block binding climate policy.

Open Letter to Roger Hallam

Roger Hallam, co-founder of Extinction Rebellion, has been accused of “anti-semitism” by big media for words he spoke taken out of context, leading to a massive backlash against the activist. This points to a much broader problem within mainstream media that climate activists need to understand: Big media is intertwined with other power centers, and they will fight tooth and nail against anyone who seriously challenges the status quo.

More on the U.S.-Backed Bolivia Coup: Stealing Bolivia’s Lithium?

Bolivia’s president Evo Morales was overthrown in a military coup on November 10. He is now in Mexico. Before being forced into exile by a miltary coup November 10, Morales had been involved in a long project to bring economic and social democracy to his long-exploited country. Bolivia has suffered a series of coups, often conducted by the military and the oligarchy on behalf of transnational mining companies. Initially, these were tin firms, but now the main target is its massive deposits of lithium, crucial for the electric car.

Neoliberalism Backfires

Massive, continuous demonstrations in the streets around the world bespeak a universal threat that neoliberalism’s self-immolation will grow worse and worse if it continues its horribly stale rotted emphasis on globalization and austerity of social programs as the answers for progress. It’s backfiring.

Assange in Court

The campaign of demonisation and dehumanisation against Julian, based on government and media lie after lie, has led to a situation where he can be slowly killed in public sight, and arraigned on a charge of publishing the truth about government wrongdoing, while receiving no assistance from “liberal” society.

Saving the Planet Means Overthrowing the Ruling Elites

Friday’s climate strike by students across the globe will have no more impact than the mass mobilizations by women following the election of Donald Trump or the hundreds of thousands of protesters who took to the streets to denounce the Iraq War. This does not mean these protests should not have taken place. They should have. But such demonstrations need to be grounded in the bitter reality that in the corridors of power we do not count.
