However, rejoicing may be premature as the gangrenous infection in the body of humanity has not been completely excised.

Refuting the Deafs: Chavism and Anarchism in Venezuela

17-05-2007 23:16

* From the publishers of El Libertario goes our reply to the habitual expressions that the coarse right or the easy-going left used to attribute us; the same left that, inside and outside of Venezuela allows that the mirage of the Chávez pseudo-revolution impressed them. We could and would like to say very much more about this subject, however currently here there is the essential and concise information about our point of view that, even when it was expressed several times it does not implies that it does not have to be repeated.

David Hicks very lucky to be tortured, isolated for 5.5 years for nothing?

15-05-2007 22:45

I should be so lucky?
John Howard must repudiate the deal as it was illegal - done under duress and with an illegally constituted tribunal which didn’t conform to Australian standards of justice. Any confession is obviously worthless.

Deciphering Images- Advertising Cultural Debasement.

the debasement of their culture in the face of globalisation would have
an image in their mind that fulfills the picture.

My focus is usually on gender and debasement.
