On Flags and Cultural Cures

charleston-politicsOn the evening of 17 June 2015 a 21-year-old white man by the name of Dylann Roof walked into an old and famous black church, the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church (AME) in Charleston, South Carolina. The church was occupied by a Bible study group. Roof actually sat in on the class for an hour before pulling out a .45 caliber handgun and announcing that black people were ”taking over our country.

Sorry… Greece and Puerto Rico Do Not Qualify for Sovereign Ponzi schemes!

hourglassNo; the Ponzi scheme has not been decriminalized for individuals, only for Nation-States and on occasion for colonies, territories and other uncommon political appellatives such as commonwealths. From Athens to San Juan the economic and political realities have confronted one another with anticipated pathetic results; no matter how you shuffle and reshape both Greek and Puerto Rican debts, the end result is the same: Greece’s and Puerto Rico’s economies have been operating on Ponzi’s free lubricating oil for too long; and finally, the day of reckoning has arrived, or it’s about to arrive, and the proverbial scoundrels (politicians, economists and “financial-raters”) are left pointing fingers at each other, or seeking some external scapegoat.

Pitfalls of Turkish-Chinese relations in a microcosm

by James M. Dorsey

Turkish soccer player Alpaslan Ozturk's decision to risk fame and wealth by expressing support for the embattled Turkic Uighur minority in Xinjiang reflects pressures in China's ties to Turkey, its most complex relationship in the Muslim world and a key node on the Silk Road that Beijing hopes to revive with massive investment in infrastructure across...

Scalia’s Anti-Enlightenment Anti-Individualism

Conservatives warn that the so-called liberals on the Supreme Court endanger our liberties. This is certainly true, although not exactly as the conservatives mean it. Now it’s time for them to acknowledge that the court’s conservatives do the same.

Reading Claudia Rankine On Race

We the white people have lots to learn about racism in America no matter how progressive our attitudes toward race. I realized this some years ago when I found Toni Morrison’s Beloved so grimly illuminating in depicting the cruelty experienced after the abolition of slavery by our African American fellow citizens left in a malicious shadow land of unknowing, a reflection of...

About a fishing boat and sitting ducks

by Adam Keller

The Swedish fishing boat "Marianne", with a crew of international activists and a cargo of humanitarian supplies, had spent a month and half at sea en route from Sweden to Gaza. She hardly touched at any port on the way, as that could have led to her being detained. Indeed, even in the midst of a head-on confrontation with the EU, the Radical Left government...

In Case You Still Care about JVP

Just read Rabbi Alissa Wise!

The following is a compendium of duplicitous and manipulative Judeo centric statements that illustrate precisely what many of us dread to admit - liberal Jews are not the solution; they are the core of the problem. These quotes are taken from a transcript of Rabbi Alissa Wise’s speech to a Christian Pro Palestinian organisation- Friends...
