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, […]

Mumia Closer Than Ever To Being Released

Sadly, many people confuse justice with revenge, and many people desire revenge so strongly that they will attempt to enact it against an innocent person.

To paraphrase Henry David Thoreau, the masses of modern society have been leading “lives of quiet desperation” for many years. This “quiet desperation” is an inevitable result of being locked out of participation in the fake democracy we’ve built in the U.S. as well as the feeling that “things will never change.” However, the quiet […]

No Laughing Matter

I was watching a comedic “liberal” talk show recently and something occurred to me: this isn’t actually funny.

This ignorance has led to a disturbing pattern of dysfunctional obedience and has caused horrific corruption and rampant injustice […]
