Education for responsible global resource management without Money is the Key to Peace
By : Educate People for Peace - Saturday June 4, 2005
One thing is clear. Money is POWER. And for the richest entities in the world which is the conglomirate of multinational corporations MONEY IS THEIR ONLY POWER. If you design a social system without money corporations and the oligarchy of class domination will never exist on earth again. Freedom will actually exist. And Peace will be a reality. How is this so? I can tell you that more protests, arrests, and mass harasment is now going on and will increase more than any other time in (...)

World War II was created to drive to opposing working groups into self destruction economically and to at the same time build an atomin weapon to insure that the money dominant oligarchy could destroy at their whim any possible threat to their world power and domination. As social ideals of equality and justice grew so did the fear in the upper class that they would eventually loose money and power and thus have to submit to a system where their politcial power and financial domination (...)

The End, French Style
By : Don Bravo - Wednesday June 1, 2005

Today’s seismic shift in sentiment on Wall Street was due in no small part to the courageous vote by the citizens of France in turning down the proposition on ratification of the EU Constitution on Sunday. Their nay-saying to the much of the conceptual structure of the European Union struck a major chord for national identity and self-determination over the collectivism of the EU. The ramifications of this vote are likely to be far-reaching and extremely liberating. In essence, the (...)

The "bankruptcy reform" bill "passed the House on a 302-126 vote on Thursday, a month after the Senate voted 74-25." It is time for the American wing of the global justice movement, which has been struggling to force the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank to drop the debt under which peasants and workers of the global South groan, to take on the finance and credit industry that oppresses US workers by usury. Why not begin this weekend, when global justice activists gather in (...)

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.

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 (...)

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 (...)

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.

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 (...)
