About the Author
 David Swanson wants you to declare peace at  His new book isWar No More: The Case for Abolition. 

Armed attacks are not covered by the First Amendment. I can and have argued at length for the strategic — never mind legal — need to respect odious free speech, and — more importantly — to respect and build bridges of understanding to the troubled people preaching hatred. But the human right to free speech is not found in a gun or a torch or a can of pepper spray any more than in corporate advertising. When we hold peace rallies in U.S. cities we are sometimes forbidden to bring posters on wooden poles.


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

Ignorant about domestic and geopolitical issues mattering most.

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

No exceptions whatsoever. It’s brainwash propaganda.

Toxic sludge for the mind.

Voices like this are NEVER heard on the mainstream media.

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

A sociopathic, puny segment of humanity.

These people pretend to honor and defend democracy.

But are its murderers and undertakers.

Gross injustice, war, grotesque inequality is their handiwork.

And the murder of the planet

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

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

The corporate media is their main line of defense.

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

Is to break their media.

The corporate chokehold on political information is killing us.

Save humanity, the planet and its innocent creatures.

Increase public distrust in the mainstream media.

Defeat their power to mislead.

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

And they never stop.

Some more obviously than others, but they all lie.

So trust no one on the Big Media.

And beware of "entertainment shows".

Most also carry highly toxic imperialist propaganda.

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

The police state.

Or CBS Madam Secretary.

A ridiculous show, like The West Wing.

Telling us the US government is good.

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

That the US establishment—which they represent...

has noble aims. Rubbish!

Get the healing truth from citizens' media.

Like The Greanville Post and similar free voices.

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

Defeat the presstitutes. The media felons.

Become a soldier in the battle of communications.

Which we must win.

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

now it's a matter of survival!

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. Taking down hated monuments does not a revolution make. The USSR restored and kept palaces and monuments from Czarist times to remind people of history and their liberation from class oppression. And added beautiful new ones like the large figure of Victory over the monument of the fallen during World War II. Getting rid of a president is a hollow achievement where the structure of the whole system needs to be changed and the removal of one man or a family is only symbolic (cf Bourbons and Romanovs).

  2. What was predicted about the election of Donald Trump is being effected, a schism and polarization of the country between the liberals, the bourgeois left and the reactionary elements in the USA. The chaos will spread with concomitant aggressive violence, while the common people will suffer. Most of what changes will be cosmetic like every popular street theater in the opposition to the current strong social make-up of a capitalist country and it will sweep deep emotions among the above-mentioned groups.

    Once the consequences are experienced of rebellion, it will subside in the usual memory of impulsive and heroic occasional small uprisings. Unlike peasant rebellions in France or the Decembrists in Russia, books will be written but little true change can be expected. That takes cool brains, deliberate actions and a deeply studied manner of undermining unbearable circumstances. The usual hyperbole of a public that is feasted on Hollywood science fiction empires and fictional freedom schemes is not sufficient and adds rather than prevents oppression.

  3. I don’t think it’s possible to legitimately address current tensions while ignoring the central cause — extreme economic stresses. Twenty-some years into this country’s war on the poor, even liberals simply ignore the consequences. We lost some 5 million jobs since 2000, in a country that has stripped the jobless poor of the most basic human rights of food and shelter. People of color, and especially immigrants, are regarded by some as increased competition for scarce jobs. Millions of people are a single job loss from losing everything, with no way back up. We clearly don’t want to talk about any of this, but ignoring it isn’t going to make it go away.
