London. Once again: our deaths - your war
By : uksocialforum - Tuesday July 12, 2005

The bombings which horrified London, like the events of the 11th of March in Madrid, struck at the civilian population of the British capital during the summit meeting of the eight big world powers. An attack on civilians is clearly an act of terrorism, but no-one can fail to understand that these operations are conceived by those who plan them and carry them out as acts of war in response to the actions of the western powers in Iraq, Afghanistan and Palestine. In this context we wish to (...)

Then, the new Italian Socialist party, which has only two minor government posts, followed its example. The parties had called on Prime Minister (...)

By Peter Popham in Rome Silvio Berlusconi has suffered the gravest electoral rout of his political life this week, with his centre- right coalition losing power in 11 regions from the far north of the peninsula to the heel of the boot. The regional elections appeared to have been blotted out of the nation’s consciousness by the death of the Pope, but in the event turnout was high at 71 per cent.

Nichi Vendola’s victory decisively refutes the American dogma that militants on the left, choosing radicals, can’t attract votes at the center and lose to the right — the dogma that the Democrats in America and the center-left in Italy promulgate, even (...)

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 (...)

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.

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.

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 (...)
