Jerusalem: Reality vs Impracticality – The Protection Racket of the Jewish State
18 Dec 2017
In that tight piece of geography, two nations simply cannot be constructed justly; the one with the bigger guns will always dictate the terms. And it is truly no ordinary piece of geography. It is so steeped in the history and intermingling cultures of all three Abrahamic religions that try as the transplanted European Zionists may, to obliterate the vestiges of the other two, its history and its emotional affiliations cannot be divorced from that geography. Abolishing apartheid and eliminating the racist Zionist philosophy, and replacing it with a society with secular, civil and moral laws that are based on the common moral teachings of all three religions and which treat all three peoples as equals, permitting each to practice their own faith, to hold sacred their own heritage without encroaching upon the rights of each other, is the only just solution today. That is the actual ground reality when primacy is replaced with fairness. It is also the solution that the ordinary Palestinian peoples themselves demand. It is high time the Palestinian and Muslim leaders listened, and dared to lead as history's actors in their own right. Other nations' leaders will follow suit once the singular demand is tabled by the Palestinian and Muslim leaders, with no back-off whatever the pressure and consequence. In time, all wounds will heal naturally, as all three peoples have far more in common than they have the courage to recognize and accept.

The status of Jerusalem is then naturally and organically resolved as the common sacred heritage of all three faiths. Surely some formula for administering the holy city in fairness to the peoples of all three faiths can then be devised by the citizens themselves and ratified as the fair law of the sacred land that is named in the Holy Scriptures of all three faiths as “The City of Peace”.

Capitalism Criticism 2.0
18 Dec 2017
"Capitalism contains crisis as rain clouds contain rain," said Jean Juares, the 19th century French socialist. Profits increase in the neoliberal model, not investments (Nicolas Krowall). The competitive pressure drives businessmen to reduce the share invested in labor and wages.

Philippines: We condemn extension of Martial Law in Mindanao
15 Dec 2017
The extension of martial law in Mindanao to the end of 2018 by Congress comes as no surprise to Laban ng Masa (Fight of the Masses). Over the last year and a half, the Senate and the House of Representatives have been completely transformed into pliant tools of President Rodrigo Duterte, with the vast majority of the members of these two chambers surrendering their remaining shred of self-respect to become accomplices to Malacanang’s authoritarian agenda.

Boycott Utah
14 Dec 2017
Modified: 10:00:46 PM
Following collaboration between the Trump administration and Utah's politicians in their efforts to kill Bears Ears and Grand Staircase Escalante National Monuments in southeastern Utah, it has become absolutely imperative that U.S. and international consumers boycott all goods, products and services originating in that state. This should include refusal to purchase Utah agricultural products, attend Utah colleges and universities, visit Utah's ski resorts and parks, and/or purchase technology products from companies such as Adobe, Vivint, Ancestry, Domo, Entrata, and Novell, among others.

What the State Can Do
14 Dec 2017
The power of ideology is so great it easily causes a distorted perception of facts. Where money is spend is crucial, not the size of the public sector. The Internet, the touch screen, semi-conductors and the GPS were all developed with state risk capital. Apple, Google, Amazon, Facebook and others cause revenue shortfalls when they shift their profits to tax havens.
