As genuine believers in democracy we have no use for the plutocratic farce that passes for democracy in the United States and many of its vassal states. We despise the capitalist media and its regime of lies 24/7, all in furtherance of its owners' fortunes and subjection of more human beings, animals and nature to the rule of an obscenely rich puny minority that has no real allegiance to any nationality and no sincere love for peace. This kind of people are clearly described in this eloquent article by Chris Hedges, which we urge you to read:
The rule of the uber-rich, for this reason, is terrifying. They know no limits. They have never abided by the norms of society and never will. We pay taxes—they don’t. We work hard to get into an elite university or get a job—they don’t. We have to pay for our failures—they don’t. We are prosecuted for our crimes—they are not.
The uber-rich live in an artificial bubble, a land called Richistan, a place of Frankenmansions and private jets, cut off from our reality. Wealth, I saw, not only perpetuates itself but is used to monopolize the new opportunities for wealth creation. Social mobility for the poor and the working class is largely a myth. The uber-rich practice the ultimate form of affirmative action, catapulting white, male mediocrities like Trump, Kushner and George W. Bush into elite schools that groom the plutocracy for positions of power. The uber-rich are never forced to grow up. They are often infantilized for life, squalling for what they want and almost always getting it. And this makes them very, very dangerous.
Political theorists, from Aristotle and Karl Marx to Sheldon Wolin, have warned against the rule of the uber-rich. Once the uber-rich take over, Aristotle writes, the only options are tyranny and revolution..."
Under such circumstances, content is king and we publish whoever we identify as advancing truth, peace and democracy. That’s why, while we normally publish left authors, we also include sometimes people from the right such as Paul Craig Roberts, Fred Reed, and Tucker Carlson, and our colleague The Saker, a man of conservative background but with firm anti-war and anti-imperialist convictions. Needless to say, in this age of gathering darkness, we make every effort to publish only the most lucid minds around and to support the most vigorous and ample debate about the options confronting humanity.
