What is Really the Matter with CETA?

Comments Off

Published on The Bullet, Socialist Project’s E-Bulletin No. 1321, by Leo Panitch, Oct 29, 2016.

Canada’s Trade Minister Chrystia Freeland’s sense of amour propre was clearly dented last week when the latest talks to salvage the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) between the European Union and Canada appeared to fall apart in face of the refusal of the Belgian regional parliament in Wallonia to accede to the Belgian government’s support for it.

Work harder so speculators can get more

Clearing the Jungle, the Calais Refugee Operation

Comments Off

Published on Dissident Voice, by Binoy Kampmark, Oct 26, 2016.

… It grew out as an organic consequence of failure – a failure on the part of Europe’s authorities to come to some measure of proportionate and even handed procedures to assess and process desperate refugees who have very little intention of returning back to their countries.   Continue Reading…

Waking Up in Hillary Clinton’s America

Comments Off

Published on ZNet (first on TomDispatch), by Nomi Prins, Oct 27, 2016.

As this endless election limps toward its last days, while spiraling into a bizarre duel over vote-rigging accusations, a deep sigh is undoubtedly in order. The entire process has been an emotionally draining, frustration-inducing, rage-inflaming spectacle of repellent form over shallow substance. For many, the third debate evoked fatigue.

Space Odyssey: A New Technology for Following Songbirds

Comments Off

… diaporama: where the Blackbirds go, on Spiegel Online International, by Christoph Seidler, Oct 22, 2016 (Photo Gallery): there are 1.6 billion songbirds in Europe and half of them fly south for the winter. Scientists would like to follow them – using sensors attached to the International Space Station. But keeping up isn’t easy [VIDEO].

… Researchers believe that blackbirds migrate individually, but because of the astounding paucity of data, they aren’t even sure about that. Larger birds like albatrosses or geese can easily be outfitted with GPS transmitters. But blackbirds, which only weigh around 100 grams, aren’t able to carry heavy technical equipment. That is why Wikelski’s team is using lighter radio transmitters — and, if they can get their equipment to work, chasing them with cars … // Continue Reading…

How Russia Saw America’s Third Debate

Comments Off

Published on Consortiumnews, by Gilbert Dortorow, Oct 24, 2016.

With Hillary Clinton calling Donald Trump a Russian “puppet” and Trump calling her a “nasty woman,” the third presidential debate descended into personal insults that had special resonance in Russia, as Gilbert Doctorow describes. Continue Reading…

Recent media focus on the humanitarian crisis in the Syrian city of Aleppo has revealed the government promoted propagandistic methods of the Western mainstream media, which shorn of context and rich in bias uncritically accepts the narrative presented by politicians and attempts to shape public opinion to suit the needs of a war agenda … // Continue Reading…

The Future of the Euro Area

Comments Off

Published on The Bullet, Socialist Project’s E-Bulletin no 1318, by Frederic Heine and Thomas Sablowski, Oct 21, 2016.

The unequal development of the countries of the euro area since the outbreak of the crisis is causing increasing friction that threatens to tear the monetary union apart. Contrary to what many critics of the monetary union suggest, responsibility for this development lies not alone with its internal structure, but is rather a general feature of capitalist development. It is illusory to believe that under the dominance of the capitalist mode of production a spatially even development would ever be possible. Rather, the current monetary regime reinforces the cycles of capitalist crisis … // Continue Reading…

The cost of downgrading

… journal of the change of world order #11 – Published on Voltairenet.org, by Thierry Meyssan, Oct 19, 2016.

Washington is attempting to hold to its positions without having to start a Third World War, but it looks like an impossible task. Moscow is offering the United States a safe exit in Syria and Yemen. But if they should choose this option, they would be obliged to abandon some of their allies. Continue Reading…

The Anarchist Aspects of Nietzsche’s Philosophy – Presentation

Comments Off

Published on Loughborough University.uk/Anarchist Research Group/Seminar Papers, by Chris Iliopoulos, Dec 6, 2010.

The core of my hypothesis is that Friedrich Nietzsche’s philosophy promotes basic anarchist notions. Hence, what I am intending to show is the existence of a bond between the anarchist tradition and the German philosopher. My main idea is to review Nietzsche’s work from an anarchist angle.

Al-Qaeda Fighters In East-Aleppo Encircled and Besieged

The destructive course of Greece

Comments Off

Published on Defend Democracy, by Mars Lambropoulos, Oct 13, 2016.

The position I will be defending in this short intervention is that the subjection of Greece to memoranda and its consequent social and economic destruction is not simply a product of the global economic crisisthat was initiated in the United States in 2007-2008, with the explosion of subprime loans and the collapse of Lehman Brothers, and then exported from America to Europe. In fact, hidden behind all this was a set of machinations undertaken, on the occasion of the crisis, by the European Directorate, which is mainly controlled by German interests … // Continue Reading…

Russia Throws Down the Gauntlet: Fly at Your Own Risk

Comments Off

Published on Counterpunch, by RAY MCGOVERN, Oct 12, 2016.

During the Reagan administration, I was one of the CIA analysts assigned to present to White House officials the President’s Daily Brief, which summed up the CIA’s views on the pressing national security issues of the day. If I were still in that job – and assuming CIA analysts are still able to speak truth to power – I am afraid that I would be delivering alarming news about the potential of a U.S.-Russian military clash … // Continue Reading…

In the strangest election year in recent American history — one in which the Libertarian Party’s Gary Johnson couldn’t even conjure up the name of a foreign leader he “admired” while Donald Trump remained intent on building his “fat, beautiful wall” and “taking” Iraq oil — the world may be out of focus for many Americans right now … // Continue Reading…
