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.

Foreign Policy Coup: De-Americanization of World’s Conflicts

AmericanizationSome American politicians occasionally remind us that the US should not try to be the world’s policeman; but after having listened to that save-our-blood-and-treasure cry, a sort of pretend-excuse aired time and time again for decades, I’m thoroughly convinced that it is just the occasional fake outcry; that imperialism reigns uniformly supreme in good old US of A throughout our monolithic, bipartite government and, unfortunately, the lion’s share of our politically-sedated population. It would be difficult to dispute Americans don’t relish the feeling of world dominance just as citizens of past empires have from time immemorial.

Criminalizing Criticism: A Zionist Project

anti-semitismFrom the 1920s on into the 1990s, the Zionists controlled the storyline in the West on the Israel-Palestine conflict. This meant that their version of history was the only version as far as most of the people in the West were concerned. Consequentially, they had an uncontested media field to label the Palestinians and their supporters as “terrorists” - the charge of anti-Semitism was not yet widely used. Also, as a consequence of their monopoly, the Zionists did not bother to engage in public debate.
