Louise Arbour to recieve Peace Prize? Peace Me Off!
By : johnny canuck - Friday January 2, 2009
Louise Arbour’s public profile is of a human rights champion and a distinguished jurist of International Law. This version is widely held, especially in Canada. However the University of Calgary and the Consortium for Peace Studies can’t all be unaware of Arbour’s darker history. What are they afraid of? Why doesn’t somebody object? Most recently Arbour joined the Soros think tank International Crisis Group where sits Zbigniew Brezinski, Wesley Clark, Lawrence (...)

Bretton Woods was the system of global financial management set up at the end of the second World War to ensure the interests of capital did not smother wider social concerns in post-war democracies.

Who is behind Human Rights Watch? by Paul Treanor The backgrounds of the Board members of Human Rights Watch (HRW), Europe-Central Asia section, with an indication of HRW funding sources. HRW is founded on the idea that the values of the United States are universal, and that the US must impose them on the rest of the world. As the largest human-rights lobby, it is partly responsible for the increasingly expansionist US foreign policy. No US citizen, and no US organisation, has any right (...)

Man, this country really cracks me up. Extraordinary men and women, the absolute cream of our athletic crop, who have — for likely as long as they’ve walked — trained for the moment when (...)

US anti-China re Tibet - US & Australia world’s WORST human rights abusers
By : Dr Gideon Polya - Sunday April 13, 2008
US Asia Sheriff, Australian PM Rudd has unwittingly exposed Australia as the World’s WORST human rights abuser in attacking alleged Chinese human rights abuses in Tibet. Australia’s new neo-Bush-ite PM and craven Bush America vassal, Kevin Rudd, has been touring the world for 17 days and non-specifically lecturing it on alleged China human rights abuses in Tibet (as well as cravenly supporting horrendous US militarism). I have no doubt that such abuses are occurring - indeed (...)

The Feudal Serf System in Tibet Before 1959
By : Tibet - Sunday March 23, 2008

A Society Based on a Regime that Combined the Political and Religious Powers, and Divided People into Three Strata and Nine Grades Tibet before 1959 had a society of feudal serfdom. Along with the general characteristics of feudal serfdom, there were many remnants of slavery. This social system was more cruel and reactionary than serfdom in Europe in the Middle Ages. The serf-owners’ economic interests were protected by a political system that combined political and religious powers, (...)

The Truth About Tibet : Not As Peaceful As They Want You To Think
By : wildeggs.com - Friday March 21, 2008

There is no excuse for the PRC’s violent response to the recent Tibetan protests, but the Western viewpoint of the peace-loving non-violent Tibetan monk is little more than a Shangri-la Myth carefully orchestrated by Tibetan exiles to insure Western support and favour. The truth of the matter is that Tibet was historically a feudal society completely dominated by noblemen and monasteries who enlisted Western support in the 1950’s when Communism threatened their power and (...)

HRW: Rights eroded in Iraq in 2007 with civilians targeted AFP :: 2008-02-01 :: Human rights in Iraq deteriorated for much of 2007 while sectarian violence targeting civilians swelled the number of displaced to around 4.4 million, half of them abroad, Human Rights Watch said on Thursday. "Attacks on civilians by various insurgent and militia groups continued," HRW said in a bleak assessment of Iraq in its annual report.

In defense of academic freedom - a video interview
By : Salvatore Fiore - Thursday January 10, 2008
The debate on freedom of speech once again sparks debate in and on education. Once more the word freedom is tossed wantonly around as controversial figures take to the podium at Oxford or wherever to voice their perspectives. It is the controversial individuals that attract the most attention and discussion; those whose opinions or reasonings will invariably incite the most opposition or have potential to cause the most harm to more people. We talk much less about the speeches of those in (...)

Anti-Democracy in Oklahoma Universities
By : Democracy - Friday December 21, 2007
Oklahoma Universities have had a long standing in Anti-Democracy. This has been perpetuated by the Oklahoma Regents for Higher Education. Yesterday that was made even clearer by one of the State Universities instructing employees they could not say Merry Christmas to Co-workers or in emails to name a few areas. If they begin with Christmas where will they end up if not stopped now. Contact Oklahoma law makers and tell them what you think. (...)

SWOSU a small state run Oklahoma University has instructed staff they cannot use the term Christmas. As a further example of un-Constitutional freedom of speech sensorship, this issue should be a warning to anyone wishing any greeting that may offend someone regardless of religion. The concern is that the order came from higher up in the State Government. You can Google for the news story "SWOSU" for many links. One link is below. (...)

A key indicator of the health of a democracy is the state of its journalism, the United States is in deep trouble. In Rich Media, Poor Democracy, Robert McChesney lays the blame for this state of affairs squarely at the doors of the corporate boardrooms of big media, which far from delivering on their promises of more choice and more diversity, have organized a system characterized by a lack of competition, homogenization of opinion and formulaic programming. Through numerous examples, (...)

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" (...)

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

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 (...)

Even as colleges and universities raise their tuition costs, they are relying more and more on adjunct instructors. Adjuncts are (...)

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 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.

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 (...)
