|Should Sarkosy Ban Burquas
This was brought up in my summer school class by a Pakistani student.
|Does Imperial Torture Work?
What is missing from the current discourse about torture as an instrument of imperialism is serious examination of the question "Does it work?" Not just torture, but imperialism in general.
|Are we creating a global death culture?
In the May, 2009 issue of Scientific American appears the article, "Could Food Shortages Bring Down Civilization," by Lester R. Brown. He describes the causes and likely consequences of these ...

I posted the following comment to an article on Alternet and got only one comment in response.

As much as I'd I looked forward to seeing Sicko, I didn't expect it to bowl me over as much as it did. Moore really captures a sense of how sick we are as a nation compared to others, raising the ...
|CEOs, Global Warming and Progessives
I’m so sick of hearing people say that corporations are unable to see beyond their short-term profit greed. Actually, corporations can be quite visionary.
|We assume our gang is the toughest
More and more often and more and more vocally, people are wondering why U.S. citizens are so passive in the face of Bushco's outrageous behavior. I think it's because we all still assume that in a ...
|Re attacking Iran
A few days ago I read a piece, I can't recall where, explaining in detail how Bush bombing Iran could easily send the price of oil sky high in very short order. It made sense, and so did the ...
