Why We Are REALLY Beyond the Non-Profit Industrial Complex In the Age of Neo-liberal Monopoly Capitalism

By Danny Haiphong. The Centre for Global Research.

The National Interest and the Microsoft Defense Contract
by EVAN JONES, Counterpunch
Social democrat  and capitalist stooge Francois Hollande, looking like the joke he is.

Social democrat and capitalist stooge Francois Hollande, looking like the joke he is. How can the French elect these clowns? The disease is global, just look at America. Like other politicians in pseudo-democracies, he’s merely the apex of a pyramid of corruption.

In 2006 French author Max Gallo penned a potboiler called Fier d’être français (Proud to be French). Out with the omnipresent naysayers, said Gallo. The Glory of France remains regnant, and it demands to be celebrated. For his pains, Gallo was soon elevated to the hallowed 40-member French Academy. Continue reading »

Lakoff

Lakoff

Editor’s Note: Lakoff—himself a liberal, at best a social democrat—should know that liberals, representing a centroid, bourgeois mentality and temperament, can never overcome their inherent timidity and political blinders (including a visceral anticommunism), often disguised as politeness and lack of emotionalism in the face of rightwing emotional assaults. Worse, Lakoff, and the author of this piece, should not continue to muddle the waters of political labeling already sufficiently muddled: a true progressive, a true leftist, by definition cannot be a liberal, a creature still very much attached to the establishment way of looking at reality, a politics vision that sees nothing wrong with eternal “Lesser Evilism” in the capitalist framework. The idea that Democrats, including much of the rank and file, are progressives is delusional, as the Obama regime should have abundantly proved by now. —Patrice Greanville

“The progressive mindset is screwing up the world. The progressive mindset is guaranteeing no progress on global warming. The progressive mindset is saying, ‘Yes, fracking is fine.’ The progressive mindset is saying, ‘Yes, genetically modified organisms are OK’, when, in fact, they’re horrible, and the progressive mindset doesn’t know how to describe how horrible they are. There’s a difference between progressive morality, which is great, and the progressive mindset, which is half OK and half awful.” Continue reading »

It’s satisfying to watch rats flee a sinking ship.  This is because onlookers knew the ship was doomed long ago, and swimming rats signify that the drawn-out tragedy is nearing an end.  A collective sense of relief is a natural response. Continue reading »
