An Interview with Professor David Graeber

No wonder the American public is turning away from mainstream purveyors of “news.”

Nuclear weapons and humans cannot coexist: A Japanese survivor speaks out
13 May 2005
When 60 years ago the United States became the first (and since then the only) country to use atomic weapons by dropping them on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Japan, hundreds of thousands of people were killed. Those at the hypercenter, or ground zero, were the “lucky” ones — they were instantly vaporized. Others died, but not instantly, living their last moments in pain and misery. Their flesh melting off, many perished while looking for water to ease their suffering.
