Tyranny And Rebellion – The Breaking Of The Corporate Media Monopoly

03-03-2011 09:51

Historian Howard Zinn (1922-2010), would be remembered above all for his humanity and warmth, were it not for the crystal clarity of his insight. In 'A Power That Governments Can’t Suppress,' he wrote:

‘There is a tendency to think that what we see in the present moment will continue. We forget how often we have been astonished by the sudden crumbling of institutions, by extraordinary changes in people's thoughts, by unexpected eruptions of rebellion against tyrannies, by the quick collapse of systems of power that seemed invincible.’ (Zinn, A Power That Governments Can’t Suppress, City Lights, 2007, p.267)

Protect Assange, don’t abuse him

28-02-2011 13:52

Forty years ago, a book entitled The Greening of America caused a sensation. On the cover were these words: "There is a revolution coming. It will not be like revolutions of the past. It will originate with the individual." I was a correspondent in the United States at the time and recall the overnight elevation to guru status of the author, a young Yale academic, Charles Reich. His message was that political action had failed and only "culture" and introspection could change the world. This merged with an insidious corporate public relations campaign aimed at reclaiming western capitalism from the sense of freedom inspired by the civil rights and anti-war movements. The new propaganda's euphemisms were postmodernism, consumerism and "me-ism".

Libya: Is US pushing for civil war to justify a US-NATO military intervention?

25-02-2011 19:58

Tony Blair met Muammar Gaddafi at his desert base outside Sirte, 29 May 2007
One should be opposed to dictatorship, but one should not forget the issue of foreign domination.

Is “manufactured destruction” or “creative destruction” at work?

Is Tripoli being set up for a civil war to justify U.S. and NATO military intervention in oil-rich Libya?

If Qaddafi is not ousted, are the talks about sanctions a prelude to an Iraq-like intervention?
