No to the proposed European constitution ! Solidarity with the French left’s campaign to vote "No" !

The proposed European constitution, adopted by EU member states on 18 June 2004 and currently being subjected to various types of ratification in countries across the EU, is a danger to democracy. It is an attempt to impose a socially destructive and economically neo-liberal order on a European scale.

If the constitution is adopted, life for those living in the EU will be increasingly subjected to the laws of the free market and governed by institutions which defy any form of popular control. Europe’s international role will be subordinated to NATO and to militarist ambitions. Various political, social, associational and cultural forces across Europe are opposing this project. In some countries a referendum will allow the electorate to express itself directly on the matter.

In France, in particular, the referendum of 29 May is a major political battle for the forces of the left, in all their diversity, who have joined together to campaign for a "No" vote against the proposed constitution. Their battle is also our own. This text will make attacks on living conditions easier. Its defeat is a necessary condition for halting the reactionary drift in mainstream politics and opening up the possibility of a future founded on social rights, democracy and peace.

The victory of the "No" vote in France would be a powerful boost to all those who are struggling for these values to win, in Europe and throughout the world. Initiated by Project K http://www.projet-k.org

> Yes to the proposed European constitution ! No Solidarity with the French left’s campaign to vote "No" !
Tuesday May 10 - 04:23 - Posted by cab892245a3c9898...

It seems people in Europe fear their very own shadows. The so called EU constitutions is just a mirror of the ongoing reality in Europe. It is hard to understand why people are still stuck in old pattern of protectionism. Yes, some areas are still underdeveloped and it will take some time to reach the goals of the EU, but that is the only chance to create an political and economic power which can survive in the future.
I hope people wake up!

Fear is never a good guide!

I was all for the EEC, when it was for the economic good of Europe. But now they are creating the United States of Europe, as a mirror of the United States of America, and we’ve all seen what has happened on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean. America seems to be descending with incredible rapidity down the slippery slope into fascism, or at least a super-state mode of thinking. George Orwell seems to have been off in his predictions by about 20 years.

Do we really want the same thing to happen to us? Are we really as stupid as the Americans? I hope not. Because if we are, we can say goodbye to any hope of a sane and sensible future for our children and grandchildren, at the very least.

If you have any independent thoughts left, I suggest you look at the powers that this constitution gives the European government, and what powers it takes away from you and your own government. Then you will find it much easier to vote "NO!" If you still vote yes, you have only yourselves to blame afterwards; the people get the government they deserve!

Hey Dork, you can shove your ignorant anti-American xenophobia up your ass. Things on my side of the pond look pretty good—I get to vote for federal, state, and local elected officials. The many governments in these United States are far more responsive to American citizens than the EU Uber-state is to voters in European countries. If you would get out of the cyber-cafe and travel around America (and one week split between Disney World and L.A. doesn’t count), you would realize that.

You think liberty is on the wane in America? Journalists face jail time for saying "Islam is stupid" in France, while the police chief in Berlin advises Jews there not to walk around looking, you know, Jewish.

Get in the game, Europe. History isn’t over. You have plenty to contribute to the cause of human liberty, if you would only bother to field a team.

PS—your presence was sorely missed in the immediate aftermath of the recent tsunami.

PPS—you are, however, correct to worry about the way the EU is shaping up. It’s not very democratic. And your nations’ sovereignty is being dismantled in a way that’s never happened before except as the result of a war.

Los Angeles police shooting on an unarmed men today. Violence like this is pretty common in your "free Staates". I am sorry to tell you that. Moreover here in Hawaii we have this sickos who give guns to their kids so they can cripple wildlife.
We should really distinct dont you think?

Yes I saw the police video. It was horrible. And French police were recently caught raping prostitutes in jail. Anecdotes are anecdotal. And Europe’s strict gun-control laws haven’t stopped mass-casualty school shootings from happening there.

Yeah, we teach our kids to shoot. Europe increasingly leaves all of its shooting in the hands of its various government. Good luck to them. I prefer to trust my fellow citizens.

You’re right, the way the US constitution is set up means you’re citizens. We here in the UK have no written constitutionand as such are ’subjects’. Your political set up is, on the face of it more democratic than the UK. ie decisions ratified by a 2;1 majority by Supreme Court, Congress, Presidents Office etc.
However, it seems corruption, and election rigging is the cancer infecting a political process that when inaugurated was noble and bold.

Tsunami relief; Bush initially promised $1 million, Blair a similar amount (bearing in mind this is our money anyway, from taxes) When public donations dwarfed these figures they were shamed into upping the money.

Tsunami relief—I was referring to the efforts of the US and Australian military, which saved thousands of lives in the initial days following the disaster. France sent one Dauphin helicopter. My point isn’t to bash Europe for bad intentions, it’s to point out the folly of purposely putting itself in a position of being incapable of reacting to military emergencies and natural disasters quickly.

Can you say "Patriot Act". Somehow I doubt it, since your first words were a personal attack on me. The purpose of the Patriot Act is to remove all the civil liberties of the Constitution and the first 5 Amendments, and the Bill of Rights. If you find that OK, I hope you enjoy the society that is creating. Sending a journalist to jail for saying something against a religion is good, but if he has also failed to speak out against even greater evils propagated by his own religion and his own leadership, he deserves to go to jail even more.

By the way, I don’t live in the EU, having seen the way it was heading years ago. In Switzerland I can and do vote on federal, state and local decisions and elections; in fact, the next one is on June 5. But this is because Switzerland is a participatory democracy, which neither the USA nor the EU is.

Hey Swiss,

My personal attack responded to yours, when you called Americans—and I am one—"stupid". You called me stupid, I called you a dork. Aren’t we deep thinkers?

If you think it’s okay to send reporters to jail for criticizing ANYTHING, than you and I place very different values on civil rights. I support freedom of speech, and you do not.

Your analysis of the Patriot Act is absurd, but I don’t have enough time now to get into it. Have you even studied the US Constitution or read even part of the Patriot Act?



Europe is democratic...
Tuesday May 10 - 22:32 - Posted by 3557e36a14e4ad9a...

There are no rigged elections in Europe. Did you watch the recent election in Britain? I guess as an American you must have missed the crowd of policemen and threats on Blacks with baseball bats.

Get your eyes open America!




> Europe is democratic...
Tuesday May 10 - 23:27 - Posted by d42fec9dbadfce25...

Wow, 0% voter fraud in Europe. Very impressive. Congratulations on achieving utopia.

Yes, Britain just had another fair election, good for them. I’m confused about your post, though. Are you saying that in Britain, black voters were turned away by mobs? I missed that. Do you have a link?

As an American, my eyes are open just fine. Having lived in Europe, I’ve seen things there that Europeans might have missed, just like de Toqueville saw things Americans couldn’t see.



> Europe is democratic...
Wednesday May 11 - 06:10 - Posted by bfcee33ce6ae91a8...

No, I meant black voters in America have been threatened with baseball bats.

But, you are allright. Let’s keep our eyes open.



> Europe is democratic...
Wednesday May 11 - 14:30 - Posted by d42fec9dbadfce25...

Well I’m glad to know I’m not the only proud American on this site! Good for you, my friend!

Europe? Oh, you mean, "Eur-Abia?" Within a generation, partly because of the ultra-liberalism Europeans believe in and embrace, like abortion for a woman in labor pains, and homosexual marriage, the Islamic population is now growing so fast, and soon, they won’t need to fight you. Their exploding (forgive the expression, LOL) population will enable them to take over, period. All they have to do is stand around waiting for you to destroy yourselves with euthanasia and free drugs and the other elements of a "lifestyle" that Islamists abhor.

Of course you do not want to vote "Oui" on the constitution. After all, it might become necessary to actually WORK a few hours a week for a paycheck, rather than just hang around, expecting the State to take care of you (see, "Bonjour Paresse", the current rage in France ).

Of course we have prlblems. No place is perfect, including the USA. Yes, we have a Patriot Act, and what’s wrong with that? We don’t believe our Bill of Rights is a suicide pact, by the way. I know, you "enlightened" elites think a suicide bomber has a constitutional right to get on a bus, but we think otherwise.

Not surprised to hear that, M. I wondered whether I would be blocked also when I first started. Liberals LOVE freedom of speech....as long as it conforms to their idea of freedom of speech. They surround themselves in an echo chamber of like-minded folks, so that when they run into people like yourself or me, they hate it. Do you notice how they start right away with the personal, ad hominem attacks?

Yeah, and I’ve been surprised at how much of the name-calling is homophobic. I’ll make a point about the role of gov. in the life of the individual—on an issue having nothing to do with anybody’s sexuality—and before you know it, hey presto, I get called every homosexual-related playground slur in the book. I’m no pshrink, but I’ve found that to be particularly interesting. One of the only real surprises on this site, except for the extent of the panic and paranoia (and ignorance).

Sometimes I think some of the jihad-cheering chest-thumpers on this site must be kidding. Hard to say.

No M, they are liberal Democrats who lost the election for John Kerry. God bless them. Just like the sign in Hollywood says, "Thanks Whoopi, Thanks Brabra, Thanks Susan Saranwrap." for helping re-elect GWBush.

Wow, great venom! Can I have some?

If we’re going to degenerate into playground name-calling, can I call you a "Neocom"? (Catchy, huh?)

I can’t speak for others, but I’m here for a free exchange of ideas and points of view—you know, to broaden my horizons and subject my beliefs to critical review. I’ve even learned a few things. But I guess that’s too liberal (in the true sense of the word), tolerant, and open-minded for you, though.

Tighten up those blinders and have a nice weekend (between shouting "la-la-la-la-I’m-not-listening-I’m-not-listening!!!!!!!!!").

Be ruled by the United States of Israel, Apache nation supreme or be ruled by Brussels and your own home-grown slew of Rumsfeldian thugs. Our present "democracy" has nothing to do with voting and human rights, will of the people and trite cliches endlessly repeated etc etc etc, anymore than the illusion that it can be achieved by mindless masses X-ing the so-called candidates of choice. It’s time people learned that their worth and dignity can be measured in "credit units", i.e. tattered greenbacks or alternative €uros in their bank accounts. We have devolved into consumers and that is all that they expect from us. Considering the stupidity of the majority how can one expect more?

Onward through the fog!
With all due respect

Neo-Nazis and far-right protesters in Ukraine 3 live-stream
Friday 24 January
2 comments
The far-right in Ukraine are acting as the vanguard of a protest movement that is being reported as pro-democracy. The situation on the ground is not as simple as pro-EU and trade versus pro-Putin and Russian hegemony in the region. When US Senator John McCain dined with Ukraine’s opposition leaders in December, he shared a table and later a stage with the leader of the extreme far-right Svoboda party Oleh Tyahnybok. This is Oleh Tyahnybok, he has claimed a "Moscow-Jewish mafia" (...)

At first glance, the results of America’s 2012 election appear to be a triumph for social, racial, and economic justice and progress in the United States: California voters passed a proposition requiring the rich to shoulder their fair share of the tax burden; Two states, Colorado and Washington, legalized the recreational use of marijuana, while Massachusetts approved the use of marijuana for medical purposes; Washington and two other states, Maine and Maryland, legalized same-sex (...)

I’VE DECIDED TO "WASTE" MY VOTE
Sunday 28 October
by : David R. Hoffman, Legal Editor of Pravda.Ru
In a 2004 episode of Comedy Central’s animated series South Park, an election was held to determine whether the new mascot for the town’s elementary school would be a “giant douche” or a “turd sandwich.” Confronted with these two equally unpalatable choices, one child, Stan Marsh, refused to vote at all, which resulted in his ostracization and subsequent banishment from the town. Although this satirical vulgarity was intended as a commentary on the two (...)

HIGHER EDUCATION IN AMERICA: DREAM OR NIGHTMARE? PART IV
Friday 28 September
by : David R. Hoffman, Legal Editor of Pravda.Ru
PART I PART II PART III If there is one major inconsistency in life, it is that young people who know little more than family, friends and school are suddenly, at the age of eighteen, supposed to decide what they want to do for the rest of their lives. Unfortunately, because of their limited life experiences, the illusions they have about certain occupations do not always comport to the realities. I discovered this the first time I went to college. About a year into my studies, I (...)

HIGHER EDUCATION IN AMERICA: DREAM OR NIGHTMARE? PART III
Friday 28 September
by : David R. Hoffman, Legal Editor of Pravda.Ru
PART I PART II PART IV Disillusioned with the machinations of so-called “traditional” colleges, I became an adjunct instructor at several “for-profit” colleges. Thanks largely to the power and pervasiveness of the Internet, “for-profit” colleges (hereinafter for-profits) have become a growing phenomenon in America. They have also been the subject of much political debate and the focus of a Frontline special entitled College Inc. Unlike traditional (...)

HIGHER EDUCATION IN AMERICA: DREAM OR NIGHTMARE? PART II
Friday 28 September
by : David R. Hoffman, Legal Editor of Pravda.Ru
PART I PART III PART IV Several years ago, a young lady came into the college where I was teaching to inquire about a full-time instructor’s position in the sociology department. She was advised that only adjunct positions were available. Her response was, “No thanks. Once an adjunct, always an adjunct.” Her words still echo in my mind. Even as colleges and universities raise their tuition costs, they are relying more and more on adjunct instructors. Adjuncts are (...)

HIGHER EDUCATION IN AMERICA: DREAM OR NIGHTMARE? PART I
Friday 28 September
by : David R. Hoffman, Legal Editor of Pravda.Ru
PART II PART III PART IV When The Bill of Rights was added to the United States Constitution over two hundred years ago, Americans were blessed with many rights considered to be “fundamental.” One conspicuously missing, however, was the right to an education. This was not surprising given the tenor of the times. America was primarily an agrarian culture, and education, especially higher education, was viewed as a privilege reserved for the children of the rich and (...)

ONE SOLITARY LIFE, PART TWO
Monday 30 July
by : David R. Hoffman, Legal Editor of Pravda.Ru
3 comments
If there is one universal question that haunts all human beings at some point in their lives, it is, “Why do we die?” Death, after all, is the great illogic. It ultimately claims all, the rich and the poor, the mighty and the small, the good and the evil. Death also has the capability to make most human pursuits—such as the quest for wealth, fame and power—vacuous and fleeting. Given this reality, I have often wondered why so many people are still willing to (...)

HOW MUCH CORRUPTION CAN DEMOCRACY ENDURE?
Thursday 28 June
by : David R. Hoffman, Legal Editor of Pravda.Ru

How much corruption can a “democracy” endure before it ceases to be a democracy? If five venal, mendacious, duplicitous, amoral, biased and (dare I say it) satanic Supreme Court “justices”—John Roberts, Samuel Alito, Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Anthony Kennedy—have their way, America will soon find out. In several previous articles for Pravda.Ru, I have consistently warned how the Supreme Court’s 2010 Citizens United decision is one of the (...)

DEMOCRACY IN THE HANDS OF IDIOTS, PART TWO

Imagine, if you will, that the United States government passes a law banning advertisers from sponsoring commercials on Rush Limbaugh’s radio show or Rupert Murdoch’s Fox (Faux) “News” Network. On one hand, there would be two decided advantages to this ban: The National IQ would undoubtedly increase several percentage points, and manipulative pseudo-journalists would no longer be able to appeal to the basest instincts in human nature for ratings and profit while (...)

LIVE, from the State that brought you Senator Joseph McCarthy, Wisconsin voters now proudly present, fresh from his recall election victory, Governor Scott Walker! At first glance, it is almost unfathomable that anyone with a modicum of intelligence would have voted to retain Scott Walker as Wisconsin’s governor. This, after all, is a man who openly declared he is trying to destroy the rights of workers through a “divide and conquer” strategy; who received 61% of the (...)

PEOPLE WITHOUT SOULS

A question I’ve frequently been asked since I began writing for Pravda.Ru in 2003 is, “Why did you become disillusioned with the practice of law?” This question is understandable, particularly since, in most people’s minds, being an attorney is synonymous with wealth and political power. I’ve always been reluctant to answer this question for fear it will discourage conscientious and ethical people from pursuing careers in the legal profession—a (...)
