Democracy and its Enemy, Capitalist Globalization
15 May 2007
The core problem of globalization is the dismantling of democracy. The elected are without power and those with power are not elected. The bonds between the generations burst. An absolute asocial individualization dominates (cf. Hobsbawm).

Internet Radio in Danger: Take Action Now!
14 May 2007
A ruling by an obscure regulatory agency threatens to silence thousands of Internet radio stations. After intense lobbying from the recording industry, the Copyright Royalty Board (CRB) is about to mandate exponential increases — by as much as 1,200 percent — in royalties paid every time webcasters stream a song online.
