The European and U.S. Economies: Falling Dominoes
29 May 2010
Attempting to fix an unfixable problem can create new problems. Why is the global economy unfixable in the current context? For one, the cause of the depression is never mentioned in the mainstream media or politicians. And when a disease is misdiagnosed, a prescribed medication creates new afflictions.

Massive, bad debt is often cited as the cause of the global depression, but why this debt existed in the first place is never discussed. Quite simply, the debt was needed to buy the products of corporations that wages once consumed. Over time, corporations drove down wages to out-compete each other while driving up profits, creating the global “demand” for credit, which the banks are now demanding be paid back.

Massive Oil spill solution already exists
29 May 2010
There's a potential solution to the Gulf oil spill that neither BP, nor the federal government, nor anyone — save a couple intuitive engineers — seems willing to try. As The Politics Blog reported on Tuesday in an interview with former Shell Oil president John Hofmeister, the untapped solution involves using empty supertankers to suck the spill off the surface, treat and discharge the contaminated water, and either salvage or destroy the slick.

Rwanda arrests Ingabire's American lawyer Peter Erlinder in Kigali
28 May 2010
Rwandan Police have arrested Peter Erlinder, the American lawyer who traveled to Rwanda's capitol, Kigali, on Monday, May 23rd, to join the defense team of Rwandan presidential candidate Victoire Ingabire Umuhoza. Ingabire was released after being summoned to a Rwandan police station yesterday, much to the relief of her supporters, but this morning both she and the Rwanda News Agency (RNA) reported that Erlinder had been arrested and charged with "genocide ideology," a crime unique to Rwanda which Human Rights Watch, Amnesty International, and even the U.S. State Department have denounced as a tool of political repression.

Swiss hemp activist Bernard Rappaz was sentenced to 5 years and 8 months in prison after a biased trial, which included the spectacle of the prosecution hurling accusations ranging from violations of federal anti-narcotic laws and money laundering to traffic violations. After a 50-day hunger strike to obtain a federal review of his trial, Rappaz was released and put under house arrest, and then re-incarcerated. He has restarted his hunger strike. Further demonstrating the fact that Rappaz has been unfairly targeted, his business partner only received a prison sentence, which was then reduced to parole, and a small fine. Have the Swiss authorities sentenced Rappaz to death ?
