"This One Could Take Them All Down."

Editorial/Opinion

By Chris Hedges

Chris Hedges: "What happens is in all of these movements ... the foot soldiers of the elite -- the blue uniformed police, the mechanisms of control -- finally don't want to impede the movement and at that point the power elite is left defenseless ... the only thing I can say having been in the middle of similar movements is that this one is real, and this one could take them all down ... I can guarantee you that huge segments of those blue uniformed police sympathize with everything that you're doing." -- Pulitzer Prize winner Chris Hedges brings his 20 years of experience as a war correspondent, having covered movements and revolutions throughout the the world, to the discussion.

The People’s Party?

Editorial/Opinion

Are We Witnessing The Birth Of A New Far Left Political Party In The United States?

Are we witnessing the birth of another new political party in the United States? The election of Barack Obama was the spark which fueled the rise of the Tea Party back in 2009, and since that time the Tea Party has become a major league force inside the Republican Party.

Now the Occupy Wall Street movement is rapidly becoming more organized and many believe that "The People's Party" is going to be to the Democrats what the Tea Party is to the Republicans.

Are Jobs on Their Way to Becoming Obsolete? And Is That a Good Thing?

Editorial/Opinion

Do we have it backward when we call for job creation? Could we instead radically rethink our economy to benefit everyone?

By Sarah Jaffe

Are jobs obsolete?

Media theorist and author of Life, Inc.: How the World Became a Corporation and How to Take it Back Douglas Rushkoff ruffled some feathers this week when he dared, at CNN.com of all places, to ask that question. It seemed, perhaps, gloriously insensitive to the plight of unemployed workers, of union workers at the U.S. Postal Service, who are struggling like so many others to stay afloat in an uncertain economy while they're demonized in the press as greedy for wanting a decent job.

British Leader Warns Russia 'Time of End' Has Come

Editorial/Opinion

London riots: Divine justice?

Editorial/Opinion

What happened in London last night - the torching of private property, wanton destruction, looting and generalised violence, was lamentable and unacceptable. Yet does it not provide a perfect answer from God, underlining the sheer hypocrisy with which western governments view and conduct policy, especially when we draw lines of comparison with Libya?

The Essential Rules Of Tyranny

Editorial/Opinion

Brandon Smith

As we look back on the horrors of the dictatorships and autocracies of the past, one particular question consistently arises; how was it possible for the common men of these eras to NOT notice what was happening around them? How could they have stood as statues unaware or uncaring as their cultures were overrun by fascism, communism, collectivism, and elitism? Of course, we have the advantage of hindsight, and are able to research and examine the misdeeds of the past at our leisure. Unfortunately, such hindsight does not necessarily shield us from the long cast shadow of tyranny in our own day. For that, the increasingly uncommon gift of foresight is required...

Stressed to the Breaking Point?

Editorial/Opinion

Has anyone else noticed that the level of stress in this country appears to be extremely high right now? Today, it seems like our federal government, our state governments and most American families live in a constant state of crisis. Everywhere you look there are major problems. Right now everyone is stressed out because of the "debt ceiling deadline".

Earlier this year everyone was freaked out about the possibility of a "government shutdown".

My Two Cents on Capitalism

Editorial/Opinion

by Clark Carlton

Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord. Though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool. If you be willing and obedient, you shall eat the good of the land.

Hello, and welcome once again to Faith and Philosophy. Today’s topic is “My Two Cents on Capitalism.” I’m going to return to the topic of theological language in future podcasts, and when I do, I want to focus specifically on the Scriptures and how we are to read them.

Why I Am Not a Conservative

Editorial/Opinion

By Nobel laureate F. A. Hayek

In The Constitution of Liberty (Chicago: The University of Chicago Press, 1960)
"At all times sincere friends of freedom have been rare, and its triumphs have been due to minorities, that have prevailed by associating themselves with auxiliaries whose objects often differed from their own; and this association, which is always dangerous, has sometimes been disastrous, by giving to opponents just grounds of opposition." - Lord Acton

Your Country Is Suffering From A Severe Case Of Palinosis

Editorial/Opinion

Greetings, Good People –

I hope this message finds you well, happy and productive!

Sarah Palin is back, and she needs your attention. Badly. Oh, and she’d very much appreciate your money, too. And your adoration. Okay, well, no surprises there. I am every bit as interested in Palin as I am in, say, Paris Hilton, her twin. Far more telling, however – not to mention unfortunate – is that many Americans do pay attention to her, and tens of millions would gladly put her in the White House. Therefore…

Forgotten, he awakens 500 years in the future, to discover a society so incredibly dumbed-down that he's easily the most intelligent person alive and their only hope for survival.

Obama Gives 'Sacrifice' To Ancient 'Sun God' Of Mound Builders

A most curious report prepared by the Russian Finance Ministry on the impact of soaring food prices for our world in the remaining months of 2011 says that the deliberate flooding of some of America’s most valued farmland by President Obama was “most assuredly” done as a ‘living sacrifice’ to the ‘sun god’ of the ancient peoples once living in this region known as the “Mound Builders”.

Tenth Circle of Hell: Bra Shopping

Owning boobs is complicated. Men have no idea how seriously high-maintenance boobs are. Yes, they’re a fun, soft source of pleasure, but they’re also uncomfortable, judgment prone and even get in the way of sports and leisure.

Bra shopping can be the Tenth Circle of Hell. Recently, I found my Fairy Godmother of Boobs. If you have boobs, you ought to find yours too.

A U.S. National Strategy

by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

With the close of the November 2, 2010 general elections among the states of our United States of America, the tactical political campaign of the National Caucus of Labor Committees has been shifted, by nothing more simple than the need for a qualitative shift from electoral tactics, to the urgency of redefining a national electoral strategy which expresses those new characteristics demanded by the present turn in the existential requirements of our republic's established role respecting matters of national tactical and global strategic policies—and beyond!

A Confluence of Crisis

Lyndon LaRouche

There are several subjects which are of vital importance as world issues right now. One, of course, is the economic crisis. We have the worst worldwide economic crisis in modern history now developing. It's developing in part, in Europe, in the threatened breakup of the euro system, and I can see no hope for a continuation of the present euro system. Countries which are involved in the euro system are in the process of breaking from it, or being forced to break from it. There's no choice. That's the situation.

There are people in America finally saying “No!” to the rape of America. It’s pathetic that this is a fight merely to minimize the damage to the middle class, not even to advance our cause, and that the battle is far from over, hinging now on each of 14 Democratic state senators not selling out. Just the same, though, it’s brilliant seeing tens of thousands of our brothers and sisters on the streets, refusing to be emasculated by some punk Republican governor doing the bidding of the Koch brothers. Just maybe, this is the start of America coming to its senses and…

Testimony from Tahrir

Gerard O'Neill once said: "Here is my advice as we begin the century that will lead to 2081. First, guard the freedom of ideas at all costs.

And don't regard yourself as a guardian of freedom unless you respect and preserve the rights of people you disagree with to free, public, unhampered expression."

Neocons talk the talk of democracy but undermine it at every opportunity when it doesn’t produce the results they have in mind. Meanwhile, the American president sits on the sidelines and ever so prudently gawks the gawk of democracy, even as monumental events transpire in Egypt. Both should take a lesson from the courageous kids on the streets of Cairo and Alexandria and Suez, who are walking the walk, putting their lives on the line every day.

Palestine Does Not Have to be a Lost Cause

By Alan Hart

-- The most sickening (I mean truly vomit inducing) thing about the Al Jazeera revelations, the so-called Palestine Papers, is not what they confirm about the quisling status of the impotent and corrupt Palestine Authority. Nor is it what they confirm about the Israeli leadership’s complete lack of interest in peace on terms other than those which require the Palestinians to surrender – to abandon their struggle for even an acceptable minimum amount of justice. What then is the most sickening thing?

Why the West and US fears Putin

Editorial/Opinion

By Xavier Lerma.

Russia's Prime Minister, Vladimir Putin, is a good Orthodox Christian but you would never know that from the way the West portrays him in the media. They have their own reasons for hiding this from everyone. Russia seeks expansion not as the atheistic monster from the Soviet Union, but as a Christian nation that overcame a turbulent and horrific past. Christians in Russia have survived Hell's fury from communism. The blood that once soaked the land was the seed for Russia's new destiny. The evil that spread from Russia in 1917 to the West will be destroyed by Russia's renewed faith that will heal the world.

Learning From Lame Ducks

The last week brought quite an end to the lame duck Congress. Lots was done, though it would be a mistake to overstate its impact. The economy will not be fixed (and the national debt will be far worse), the wars will not be ended (though out gays may now die in them) and we still aren’t remotely serious about global warming. Still, there were some interesting lessons which might be learned from the last days of this Congress, if anyone is interested in learning them. That’s a very big if when it comes to Barack Obama and his fellow travelers in the Democratic Party. For anyone else, the following might be of interest:

HOW ADAM SMITH FOOLED YOU SUCKERS!: Most of the Time

Editorial/Opinion

Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr

In August 1956, I forecast that, somewhere near late February and early March of 1957, the U.S. economy would experience a deep, sudden recession. I traced the timing of that recession as to be centered in the practice of retail, new-car and used-car automobile marketing, which was being conducted under the credit policies of Arthur Burns. It happened exactly when and why I had forecast this would occur. In the course of 1956, the 36th payment on the loan of a new automobile was a lalapalooza! The results soon showed.

Christianity

All national institutions of churches, whether Jewish, Christian, or Turkish, appear to me no other than human inventions set up to terrify and enslave mankind, and monopolize power and profit.
-Thomas Paine, founding father of the U.S.

Once there was a time when all people believed in God and the church ruled. This time is called the Dark Ages.

Thinker's Quote

When restraint and courtesy are added to strength, the latter becomes irresistible.
Mohandas Gandhi

Liberals

"If by a “Liberal” they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people — their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights, and their civil liberties — someone who believes we can break through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies abroad, if that is what they mean by a “Liberal,” then I’m proud to say I’m a “Liberal.” ~ John F. Kennedy, 1960

A conservative is a man with two perfectly good legs who, however, has never learned how to walk forward.
~Franklin D. Roosevelt, radio speech, 26 October 1939
