Globalization And Democracy: Some Basics

27-05-2007 07:13

The goal of the transnational corporation is to become truly transnational, poised above the sovereign power of any particu­lar nation, while being served by the sovereign powers of all nations. Cyril Siewert, chief financial officer of Colgate Palmol­ive Company, could have been speaking for all transnationals when he remarked, “The United States doesn’t have an automatic call on our [corporation’s] resources. There is no mindset that puts this country first.”[i]

Iraq war funding bill fiasco masks collusion between Bush and Democrats

27-05-2007 06:55

On May 22, 2007, Washington’s Democrats obediently capitulated to the Bush administration, handing Bush a war spending bill completely stripped of conditions that would, in any way, slow the administration’s relentless Middle East conflagration. In fact, the new bill is an even more egregious blank check for a massive “surge” of Bush administration violence throughout the region, opening the door for a war with Iran. New Iraq “benchmarks” pushed by the Democrats themselves will result in new atrocities and more bloodshed, funded by the Democrats themselves.

British Oppression Downing Street protest - the usual suspects strike again

26-05-2007 22:56

Well, well, well, or not, as the case may be. Friday 15th June appears to have a "Muslim" protest organised at which Muslims are urged to "Respond to the call of Allah and the Messenger." This apparently, means that Muslims should protest against British Oppression outside Downing Street, although this is likely to have to be outside the fortress gates of Downing Street, rather than immediately outside the front door of number 10, if it even gets that far because Downing Street happens to be part of an exclusion zone that prevents the population of the UK from protesting against anything, much less British Oppression, anywhere near Parliament or Downing Street without first having obtained express permission for so doing. Of course, there is nothing oppressive about having to obtain express permission from the very State against whom you wish to protest, unless it happens in some far off land such as Uzbekistan. Doublethink is good for you and better for your country.

26-05-2007 13:58

This week, Channel 4 news presenter Jon Snow took a personal interest in asking if the UK would launch a revenge attack for the death of former Russian spy Alexander Litvinenko. Snow has developed a new found concern for the people of Chechnya following the death of Litvinenko. So much so, he now thinks the President of Russia Vladimir Putin is a bad man because he has access to gas and other reserves and is not playing ball with corrupt western power brokers. So what is Snow's agenda?
