It's Time For A Second American Revolution

By Mikhail Gorbachev

America was the main architect, and America's elite the main beneficiary, of the current world economic model. That model is now cracking and will, sooner or later, be replaced. That will be a complex and painful process for everyone, including the United States.

Where Fear Rules

By Paul Craig Roberts

Americans are at ease with their country's aggression against Afghanistan, Iraq, and Pakistan, which has resulted in a million dead Muslim civilians and several million refugees, because the US government has filled Americans with fear of terrorists. "We have to kill them over there before they come over here."

Jason Leopold, Truthout: "Last month, the CIA told a federal court judge it could not abide by a court order and turn over detailed documents about the destruction of 92 interrogation videotapes because it would compromise the integrity of a special prosecutor's criminal investigation into the matter. US District Court Judge Alvin Hellerstein responded by demanding a sworn declaration from special counsel John Durham confirming that to be the case. In a subsequent court filing, Lev Dassin, acting US attorney for the Southern District of New York, backtracked and said the CIA would no longer rely on that argument."

Bank Bailout Turns Out to Have Been Good Business for US

Kevin G. Hall, McClatchy Newspapers: "When Congress passed the $700 billion Wall Street bailout package last fall, critics said it'd be a money loser. But when 10 banks returned $68 billion of the money on Tuesday, President Barack Obama said the government had realized a small profit. Did it really? In addition to returning the $68 billion, the 10 banks paid the government $1.8 billion in dividends on the preferred shares of stock the government owned. That translates to an annualized rate of return of about 4.64 percent on the $68 billion."

Objections raised to extension of Green Belt mobile phone mast in Great Budworth

Jun 10 2009 by David Norbury, Mid Cheshire Chronicle

PARISH councillors, conservationists and neighbours are objecting to a scheme to heighten a T-Mobile phone mast on Green Belt land next to Belmont Hall, Great Budworth.

The operator is seeking approval to add a 5m extension to its 15m tower and to replace the six 2G antennae with three 2G and three 3G.

The Parish Council objects and says it has ‘grave concerns’ about the visual effects above the tree canopy.

The village Amenity Society agrees it would be intrusive, while neighbours at Garden Cottage, 75m from the installation, have raised health and safety issues with the proposal.

They say they are ‘seriously concerned’ about the increased health risks and point out that Cransley School is within 400m.


Verlust von zehntausenden Jobs ist immer systemrelevant

10. Juni 2009

Der stellvertretende Parteivorsitzende Klaus Ernst kritisiert die Bundesregierung wegen ihres fehlenden Engagements für die Beschäftigten von Arcandor und fordert Staatshilfen, die allerdings an soziale Kriterien gebunden sein müssten. Ernst erklärt:

Das öffentliche Duell von Steinmeier und Guttenberg ist bestenfalls lächerlich, für die Arcandor-Beschäftigten allerdings unerträglich. Da starren zwei Minister auf Beliebtheitswerte und rühren in Wirklichkeit keinen Finger für die Menschen. Es geht nicht darum, Arcandor oder Frau Schickedanz zu helfen. Es geht darum, Jobs zu retten. Wenn ein Unternehmen mit zehntausenden Beschäftigten in die Pleite geht, dann ist das immer systemrelevant, weil Hunderttausende in ihrer Existenz bedroht sind. Es ist noch nicht zu spät. Staatshilfen dürfen kein Tabu sein, wenn sie an soziale Kriterien gebunden werden. Ein Kündigungs- und Lohnsenkungsverbot ist das Mindeste. Aus Staatshilfen müssen Staatsanteile und mittelfristig Belegschaftsanteile werden.

California is broke(n) on most every register and by almost any measure

The State We Are In

David Theo Goldberg, Truthout: "The State of California, it is now plain for all who hadn't noticed previously, is dysfunctional. As much politically as economically. Many now are pointing out that the causes of our current demise, and therefore the fixes too, are technical by nature. The culprits are various: Proposition 13 radically restricts revenue collection by limiting property taxes for long-time California residents; the two-thirds vote required for any budget solution is next to impossible to achieve; narrowed term limits for state politicians produce turnover and inexperienced legislators; rule by Propositional mandate (which brought about the previous three policies) yields so much inflexibility and required spending as to limit the range of possible fixes, and so on. California is broke(n) on most every register and by almost any measure."

The new totalitarianism

Porcupine Blog
by Larry Gambone


As everyone knows, ‘classic’ totalitarian systems are fa[s]cism, nazi-fascism and Stalinism. The idea was to mold humanity in the image presented by the state ideology. This was achieved through terror, but also mass media, the education system, a party hierarchy that one had to join to get ahead, the creation of scape goats and demonic figures and an economic system geared to the needs of the state. But classical totalitarianism suffered from a number of serious flaws. For the ruling classes, the dictators they backed were unwilling to remain as puppets and had ideas of their own. Having the police and the army in their control they were able to attempt those plans. The second was the problem of succession, always a problem in a dictatorship. The third was inefficiency...
