How much do you know about the increased political tensions on the Korean peninsula? The answer, even for diligent readers of the mainstream press, is likely to be 'not much'. In place of serious, penetrating analysis the public has been sold a cartoon version of events based on a well-worn propaganda template.

08-06-2009 21:52

Argues that this has happened across Europe, resulting in the rise of the far Right as a direct consequence of the failure of neo-liberal economic individualism.

08-06-2009 20:45

North Korea on Monday sentenced two American journalists to 12 years of hard labor in a case widely seen as a test of how far the socialist state was willing to take its confrontational stance toward the United States.
