How Unions Gave My Redneck Family a Chance at the American Dream

Age of Reason

By Joe Bageant

Restoring dignity to laboring America won't be easy. It won't be pretty, and it won't be "within the system." Because the system is the problem.

In The Spirit of Perestroika

By Mikhail Gorbachev

-- Years ago, as the Cold War was coming to an end, I said to my fellow leaders around the globe: the world is on the cusp of great events, and in the face of new challenges all of us will have to change, you as well as we. For the most part, the reaction was polite but sceptical silence.

Obama's Incredible Quote About Israel and Palestine

Age of Reason

“Israelis must acknowledge that just as Israel’s right to exist cannot be denied, neither can Palestine’s,” Mr. Obama said. “The United States does not accept the legitimacy of continued Israeli settlements. This construction violates previous agreements and undermines efforts to achieve peace. It is time for these settlements to stop.”

War Is Sin

Age of Reason

By Chris Hedges

-- The crisis faced by combat veterans returning from war is not simply a profound struggle with trauma and alienation. It is often, for those who can slice through the suffering to self-awareness, an existential crisis. War exposes the lies we tell ourselves about ourselves. It rips open the hypocrisy of our religions and secular institutions

Fixing America, Erasing Bush

Age of Reason

by: William Rivers Pitt

President Obama gave a speech on Thursday praising the excellence of the American experiment, and claimed his own life was made possible by the promise of the documents and the ideals that founded this nation. As usual, his delivery and diction was perfect. Unfortunately, his behavior of late has fallen far short of the ideals he has given such eloquent lip service to.

End HMOs, Rebuild the Hill-Burton Hospital System

If a nation in the midst of an economic crisis, with unmet medical needs, decided to reduce spending on health care, decrease the number of hospitals, and cut treatment, what would you think about its government's intention? Premeditated murder?

Norway's Success in Socialism has me Turning Red with Envy

It's time to part company

Age of Reason

Is Independence the Future of Texas?

Age of Reason

Of all the American states, only two have ever been fully independent nations: the Kingdom of Hawaii, land grabbed and stolen by US business interests and Texas, which, after being an independent republic, joined the US willingly, or at least that is the official line. There are quite a few who debate the willingly part, but that, dear reader, is for another story.

Race does not exist. It is a figment of your imagination.

Age of Reason

The word “race” has no biological definition.

The classification “race” is only applied to humans and is therefore not a general term of biology. In other species we talk of “subspecies” and occasionally “breed” (the result of deliberate breeding efforts).

By Joe Conason

In America’s struggle against the extremists and terrorists epitomized by al-Qaida, the strategic imperatives are to divide the enemy and neutralize their base.

The Change of 1945

It is widely acknowledged today that you can't solve a problem, such as the deepening breakdown crisis of the world economy, without knowing what its causes were. In that light, there is little surprise that so few people know how to approach getting the world out of the current disaster.

Planting the Seeds of a Revolution

Age of Reason

by Ellen Goodman

You have to admit that this gives new meaning to the idea of a "shovel-ready project." There are now 1,100 square feet on the South Lawn of the White House being transformed into a kitchen garden. If Americans follow the first family's lead, the seed pack will become the new stimulus package. At least we'll have something to do with those pitchforks after the AIG bonus babies surrender their money.

Cuomo Takes on Wall Street

America Is in Need of a Moral Bailout

Age of Reason

by Chris Hedges

In decaying societies, politics become theater. The elite, who have hollowed out the democratic system to serve the corporate state, rule through image and presentation. They express indignation at AIG bonuses and empathy with a working class they have spent the last few decades disenfranchising, and make promises to desperate families that they know will never be fulfilled. Once the spotlights go on they read their lines with appropriate emotion. Once the lights go off, they make sure Goldman Sachs and a host of other large corporations have the hundreds of billions of dollars in losses they incurred playing casino capitalism repaid with taxpayer money.

New Thinking on the Economy: Workers First!

Age of Reason

by: Matt Renner

Maverick Southern Methodist University economics professor Ravi Batra says the financial crisis is just one symptom of a long-festering economic disease - a disease caused by neglecting basic economic principles over the past 30 years. Comments made by President Obama seem to echo Dr. Batra's understanding of a domestic economy choked by consumer debt.

In Search of the Elusive Israeli Peace Partner

By Samah Jabr
ASIDE FROM a few individual initiatives and such rare, fleeting phenomena as the new historians and refusenics, the “Israeli peace camp” remains far from being a significant political movement, whether in proportion to the Israeli population or to the level of progressiveness of its vision and platform. Indeed, the Israeli claim that “there is no peace partner” among the various Palestinian movements more accurately describes the Israeli factions.

Preaching To The Choir?

Age of Reason

By Timothy V. Gatto

There are so many of my fellow countrymen that wish Barack Obama were really the answer to this nations errant wandering. So far, since World War II, we have seen this nation violate just about every humanitarian principle ever developed by a modern civilization. We have overthrown governments for monetary gain, for the industrialists and the agricultural elite, for resources and markets, defying international law, and succeeding. We have become not a representative republic; the form of government proposed in The Constitution by our forefathers, instead we seem to have opted for a military oligarchy.

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 fascism comes to America, it will be wrapped in the flag, carrying a cross."
-- Sinclair Lewis

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
