USA - We’ve Had The Debtbacle, And Everything Nasty Before it, So Now What Do We
By : Dan Stafford - Thursday August 4, 2011
The first thing that we need to do as a people is stop abdicating the most basic office of our government - the Precinct Representative - and take back control of the local party organizations. People think "I just can’t do any more, I’m too tired and stressed-out." Or they think that all politics is a dirty game full of slimy people. That’s because good people have abdicated their responsibility in our democracy by letting the most basic party office go mostly unfilled. (...)

Who Are the Tea Party Patriots
By : William John Cox - Sunday March 6, 2011
Most people only see the public faces of the Tea Party Patriots: those doing televison interviews, appearing on the covers of magazines, waving from the steps of private jets at political rallies, and who spend the millions of dollars in tax-free donations they have raised; but who are the 15 million “patriots” who actually attend the thousands of local tea parties across the heartland of America? Answers were sought at the TPP’s American Policy Summit held during the (...)

Rebooting Resistance
By : June Terpstra, PhD - Thursday December 16, 2010
Come, then, those of us who care about ending oppression. Reject the inhumanity of the right wing; the ignorance of the Tea-Party; the ineffectiveness of the left wing; the lies of liberals and libertarians; the greed of imperialists and royalists; and the abuses of religions. Now leave them all behind. A possible better world is long overdue. Let us not attempt to recreate or reform systems of empire and globalization. This tired planet cannot survive the games that the greedy play. (...)

Voter Empowerment - Not a New Party
By : William John Cox - Wednesday November 24, 2010
If nothing else, the election of 2010 has taught us that a “third” political party is not the answer. Like the two existing major parties, it too would simply become another political commodity to be purchased by the corporations and wealthy elite for their own purposes, rather than serving the interests of ordinary voters. Political salvation will come when the voters of every party decide to exercise, rather than dissipate, their power. Political parties have been around (...)

Australia’s hung Parliament forshadows Afghan War Debate - yet "The Age" already censors the Awful Truth
By : Dr Gideon Polya - Sunday September 5, 2010
With the hung Parliament result in the recent Australian Federal Election a major crack has appeared in the US Alliance edifice of lies, propaganda and deception over 9-11, the War on Terror and the horrendously deadly, 8 million-victim wars of occupation still being waged in Occupied Iraq, Occupied Afghanistan (and elsewhere). With 72 seats for Labor (the Labs) , 73 seats for the Liberal-National Party Coalition (the Libs), 1 Green seat, 1 Greenish independent (Andrew Wilkie) and 3 right (...)

LIBERTARIAN-SOCIALISM: AN IDEA WHOSE TIME HAS COME
By : David R. Hoffman, Pravda.Ru Legal Editor - Saturday April 24, 2010
4 comments
Ever since the passage of the health care reform bill in America, many so-called “tea-partiers” and their supporters have been stoking the fear that this new law has somehow created a “slippery slope” that will culminate in the destruction of the Constitution, and the ascendancy of a “socialist” government. For those unfamiliar with the terminology, the “slippery slope” argument is analogous to a snowball rolling down a mountainside: the (...)

Video: Ralph Nader: “Why Aren’t Corporate Crimes Prosecuted?”
By : William Hughes - Thursday April 22, 2010

On April 20, 2010, author and political gadfly Ralph Nader gave a lecture at the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA), in Baltimore, MD. He spoke before a near capacity audience for over an hour. Mr. Nader said corporate crimes, as opposed to “street crimes,” go mostly under-reported by the establishment media in the U.S. and are “rarely prosecuted.” He detailed how corporate “misbehavior, negligence and crimes” cost thousands of deaths every year in (...)

On April 20, 2010, author and political gadfly Ralph Nader gave a lecture at the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA), in Baltimore, MD. He spoke before a near capacity audience for over an hour. Mr. Nader spotlighted corporate power and abuses in the U.S., and how AIG, the insurance titan, is the biggest recipient of “welfare—$182 Billion!” He showed how the workers in Western Europe have long had splendid social programs, like: “universal health (...)

A Mad Tea Party
By : William John Cox - Tuesday April 20, 2010
There are good reasons why the tea partyers are mad; however, their solutions are equally mad. The movement is being joined by independents, republicans, and democrats who have come to believe their government has failed them and that neither political party is doing anything to fix it. This is true; however, all of us are being manipulated by the big corporations and the wealthy elite, who use their corporate-owned, mainstream media to mislead the people into acting against their own (...)

On Nicos Poulantzas . (In Radical history Review).
By : Anders STEPHANSON - Thursday March 18, 2010
Nicos Poulantzas The suicide of Nicos Poulantzas has received scant, if any, attention in the United States. This is not so much because Poulantzas committed an unthinkable act by jumping out a window, an act which is not easily confronted by anyone. The reason for the silence is instead more forthright than that: though his work was emblematically known here, it never had the enormous theoretical and political impact it did in Europe. It is indeed hard to make clear for an American (...)

Why Republicans Make Things Up
By : Daveparts - Sunday February 21, 2010
1 comment
By David Glenn Cox It has long been offered that politics is the art of telling your constituents to go to hell and then convincing them that they really want to go. It’s the art of convincing them that what they think is good for them really isn’t. Sometimes it’s a promise to make the sunshine brighter or the rain fall on command. When you ran for office as a Democrat in the good old days you could promise new and better schools, highways and more jobs. It was a pretty (...)

RECENT THOUGHTS ON SARAH PALIN AND THE TEA PARTY

PALIN AND CRIB NOTES ON HER PALM - HARDLY A BIG POINT BECAUSE SHE HAS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO SAY WITH OR WITHOUT NOTES POSTED RESPONSE TO A COLUMN IN THE NEW YORK TIMES The problem certainly is not the crib notes on Sarah Palin’s palm, although it makes a funny anecdote after her blubbering about teleprompters. The problem is that Sarah Palin has absolutely nothing to say, with or without notes. Almost every word that comes from her mouth is completely predictable. And all of it is (...)

“In every American community you have varying shades of political opinion. One of the shadiest of these is the liberals. An outspoken group on many subjects, ten degrees to the left of center in good times [and] ten degrees to the right of center if it affects them personally.” These were the words the late folk singer Phil Ochs used in 1966 to introduce his sardonic song, Love Me, I’m A Liberal, a humorous and politically astute critique of individuals who profess to (...)

Daniel Bensaid – 1946-2010

Tragically, Daniel Bensaid, leading French revolutionary socialist and author of Marx For Our Times passed away this morning, Tuesday 12th January 2010. This is a rough translation of Liberation’s report of the death of Daniel Bensaid. The Marxist philosopher and theorist of the old Revolutionary Communist League (LCR), a predecessor New anti-capitalist party (NPA), Daniel Bensaid, died this morning at 63. He had been seriously ill for several months. After co-founding the JCR (...)

His latest book is: “Only the Super-Rich Can Save Us!” On the evening of Oct. 8, 2009, he spoke at the popular restaurant/bookstore “Busboys & Poets,” in Washington, D.C.

The Lost Children
By : Daveparts - Saturday September 19, 2009
By David Glenn Cox It is human nature that impels the majority of us to be followers. Normal people, after five or six years of wandering in the desert, will begin to ask questions of their leadership. But a faith-based leadership leans heavily on the desire not to be wrong. No one likes being wrong, and many, if not most of us, will jump through hoops to prove that we are not wrong. This defines our political landscape today. The Republican party is aimless and wandering; they have lost (...)

The Fed’s Interesting Week By Ron Paul Published 09/01/09 It has been an interesting week indeed for the Federal Reserve. Early this week, it was announced that President Obama intends to reappoint Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke to a second term in January, signaling a vote of confidence in him. Bernanke seems to be popular with the administration and with Wall Street, and with good reason. His lending policies have left big banks flush with newly created cash that covers up old mistakes (...)

Neo-Nazis and far-right protesters in Ukraine 3 live-stream

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 DEMOCRACY ENDURE?

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 (...)

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 (...)

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 (...)
