The Necessary (R)evolution Will Not Be Televised

Capitalism is oppression. It’s oppression delivered through racism, patriarchy, intolerance of “others”, religious zealotry and other tools of dividing us – basically the spreading of hate, greed and fear. It’s neatly wrapped and sprinkled with the sugar (and spice and everything nice) of patriotism, socially acceptable responsibility (working “hard”) and more ignorance & greed, then […]

Did The ‘Cold War’ Ever Actually End?

Or have the combatants merely changed? Corporate predators don’t shoot us (usually), but they use more discreet weapons to kill and maim. Many don’t appear to be weapons because we’ve been conditioned not to question the rules of engagement set by these manipulative rulers.

Battle Of The Airwaves Part 1

This is about the insidious plague of censorship, but instead of doing an in-depth study of the phenomenon (as a responsible journalist would do), I decided to relay personal experiences that I can’t explain in any way other than creepy nosiness by industry or by government agencies as directed by their corporate overlords. Almost every […]
