A Warning From Frank Herbert

A warning from the brilliant author Frank Herbert about following the greed-induced insanity of Capitalism: “You cannot go on forever stealing what you need without regard to those who come after.” Yes, it’s insane to gamble the existence of the entire species simply because you figure you’ll be dead before the consequences of your actions […]

What Are We Afraid Of?

I feel disgust every time I hear someone call Bernie Sanders a radical. Needless to say, I feel disgusted every day. It shows how far to the “right” of the political spectrum the people of the United States have been pushed by feamongering whores who are on the payroll of the parasitic executives who run […]

Why This Election Is Different by David Swanson

The world is full of ugly truths and pretty lies. Honest, courageous people fear the potential destruction that can be wrought by the pretty lies while fearful, obedient people fear the ugly truths which could set them free. It’s long, long, long past the time to step back and see not just what’s arrogantly pushed […]

Happy New Year! Who Was The Radical MLK? by The Anti-Social Socialist

The world of the corporate executive in the U.S.: a “booming” stock market; “strong” economic growth; “America” (their version) is great again; an inordinate effect on elections – uh, make that selections; companies that destroy the environment while diverting billions of dollars from the working class to the parasitic class (like Chevron, Halliburton, Kinder Morgan, […]

The Wisdom Of Master Po

The Wisdom Of Master Po We can often find wisdom in unexpected places. Lessons not only come in the form of what to do in certain situations throughout life, but from making observations about what not to do. I’ve noticed over the years that I’ve learned as much from foolish, reckless people as from wise […]

Fear Is The Only Darkness

My favorite television show ever, “Kung Fu”, ran from 1972 to 1975. Master Po was amazing. Here is a sample of his wisdom: Stillness…

Just a Paranoid Weirdo?

This is something I wrote a few months ago that I was unable to post due to not being able to access my blog account. It’s just another rambling thought about something imaginary (invisible?) to most people: I occasionally sign online petitions, though not every one that is sent to me. Hell, there are so […]

Iran goes for “maximum counter-pressure”

June 22, 2019 By Pepe Escobar – with permission and cross-posted with Strategic Culture Foundation Sooner or later the US “maximum pressure” on Iran would inevitably be met by “maximum counter-pressure”.  Sparks are ominously bound to fly. For the past few days, intelligence circles across Eurasia had been prodding…

Who Actually Believes America and Its Flagrant Attempts To Corner Iran? by Finian Cunningham + Vijay Prashad: Where Are the Skeptics? + Wilkerson: US Further Isolates Itself

I know this post is a bit late, but I fear that the rabidly relentless conditioning of U.S. citizens to believe that the U.S. ever has good intentions when it comes to foreign affairs is still amazingly effective. Even educated people seem to lose a few dozen points in their IQ when it comes to […]
