A sound left must re-discover, behind the lies and distortions written by its enemies, the theories, the practices, the language, the history, the science, and the errors (most important) of the left’s once living cultures and societies—a left that changed the world. 


^0Americans are the most over-entertained, uninformed people on the planet.^3000

Ignorant about domestic and geopolitical issues mattering most.^3000

The most important act anyone can do is stop using all mainstream media.^3000

No exceptions whatsoever. It’s brainwash propaganda. ^3000

Toxic sludge for the mind.^3000

Voices like this are NEVER heard on the mainstream media.^3000

The "1%" is the global plutocracy, the billionaires.^3000

A sociopathic, puny segment of humanity.^3000

These people pretend to honor and defend democracy.^3000

But are its murderers and undertakers. ^3000

Gross injustice, war, grotesque inequality is their handiwork. ^3000

And the murder of the planet^3000

Just 8 billionaires own as much wealth as HALF of all humanity.^3000

That's 8 guys are richer than 4 billion people.^3000

The corporate media is their main line of defense.^3000

That's why the best way to break their hold on us...^3000

Is to break their media.^3000

The corporate chokehold on political information is killing us.^3000

Save humanity, the planet and its innocent creatures.^3000

Increase public distrust in the mainstream media.^3000

Defeat their power to mislead.^3000

They lie 24/7. They sell you war. Injustice. Death. Confusion.^3000

And they never stop.^3000

Some more obviously than others, but they all lie. ^3000

So trust no one on the Big Media.^3000

And beware of "entertainment shows". ^3000

Most also carry highly toxic imperialist propaganda.^3000

Like the fungal NCIS series. Or "24", glorifying DHS. ^3000

The police state.^3000

Or CBS Madam Secretary. ^3000

A ridiculous show, like The West Wing. ^3000

Telling us the US government is good.^3000

That the president is good...that its cabinet is good.^3000

That the US establishment—which they represent...^3000

has noble aims. Rubbish!^3000

Get the healing truth from citizens' media.^3000

Like The Greanville Post and similar free voices. ^3000

Do your part to break the power of the mainstream media.^3000

Defeat the presstitutes. The media felons.^3000

Become a soldier in the battle of communications. ^3000

Which we must win.^3000

As the ruling cliques prepare the world for nuclear war...^3000

now it's a matter of survival!^3000

Start today! Share our articles on your social media.^3000

Put us on Facebook, Twitter, Google or Instagram accounts! ^3000

Sweet Irony…
Amazon will donate a commission for every purchase you make using this app

We all know that Amazon is an uber-capitalist octopus swallowing ever more industries and openly collaborating with the CIA. Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, probably the #2 richest man on earth, is no friend of radicals, or socialist revolution, that’s for sure. But this app, ironically, promises to donate some money to whoever uses it to search and make a purchase on Amazon. Since many people will go on using Amazon due to habit or convenience, make it kick back a few dollars our way to continue our pro-peace and anti-imperialist work. Our financial situation leaves us no choice at this point. So consider it. A boycott of Amazon by lefties at this point is hardly going to register on their radar. But any funding we get, at our puny level, will keep us going. Simple as that.

Parting shot—a word from the editors
The Best Definition of Donald Trump We Have Found

In his zeal to prove to his antagonists in the War Party that he is as bloodthirsty as their champion, Hillary Clinton, and more manly than Barack Obama, Trump seems to have gone “play-crazy” — acting like an unpredictable maniac in order to terrorize the Russians into forcing some kind of dramatic concessions from their Syrian allies, or risk Armageddon.However, the “play-crazy” gambit can only work when the leader is, in real life, a disciplined and intelligent actor, who knows precisely what actual boundaries must not be crossed. That ain’t Donald Trump — a pitifully shallow and ill-disciplined man, emotionally handicapped by obscene privilege and cognitively crippled by white American chauvinism. By pushing Trump into a corner and demanding that he display his most bellicose self, or be ceaselessly mocked as a “puppet” and minion of Russia, a lesser power, the War Party and its media and clandestine services have created a perfect storm of mayhem that may consume us all.

  1. With freedom comes responsibility and it is not clear that the public in the West is ready for revolution. One of the main failures of the ‘loose’ left is the incomprehension that what keeps the state going are laws most of which are political constructs to keep the class divisions intact. By ignoring the nefarious legal bonds and thinking that the discredited suffrage system can change that bondage, the left loses its potential power. It makes no sense to deplore what goes on in government or with public servants. All of it must be discarded together with moral rationalizations and protections. One can never build a new society on the ruins of the previous one nor carry over the few rules that appear to be rational, because then the left become reformers not revolutionaries. All the cant about social enlightenment and private independence for proprietors resulting from 1776 has been used in blind support for the simulacrum of freedom.

  2. The closing-in of the areas to think and therefore to act in the USA is progressing apace, vide the article of Google and Amazon’s cooperation: It follows a ‘rappel a l’ordre’, which has become necessary to retain diminishing imperialism and economic influence of the USA. The country is gearing up for hard times by giving its bankers and industries a free hand to circle the wagons and make America great again, i.e. a fortress America.

    We are entering a new era. Neoliberalism is gone, it flew out of the window with the wicked witch of the West. What we get with Trump and his gang is militant corporatism, a nation that is clearly built like a corporate structure. No more tolerance of vapid resistance, the militarized police will take care of that, with increased imprisonments, no more self-indulgent and opportunistic nomenclature, but a smaller tiered regiment of bureaucrats, a direct pyramidal power structure leading up to the president, and finally a full realization of USA Inc.

    That it has been in the works for a long time was well recognized but never have the political fasces of national corporatist power been drawn so tight. Obviously, Trump has been given full executive leeway and the proof of it is the expanding stock markets. As a pseudo-strong man Trump serves his class even though they may find him and his methods vulgar and un-political. The absurd and ineffective media jeremiad against Trump led by the ci-devant neoliberal nomenclature is of no importance.

    By clearly taking over the reins of government themselves the banking / industrial / military cabal make the congress, representatives and senators redundant and it is obvious in the resistance they show Trump in trying to sink his political agenda. It will be totally useless because their power comes from that cabal. The USA s entering a new political phase, that of full and open corporate dictatorship

  3. “We now, on the loose left, rally to the call of ‘human rights,’ which are invariably being abused outside our national borders. ” And heaven forbid, we should notice that our policies against the poor within these border directly violate human rights standards (UN’s UDHR).
