PAUL EDWARDS—Under Hitler, Nazis became, as was promised, more repressive, politically punishing, and viciously racist, murdering leadership of the parties that had opposed them, the Communists—who had gotten nearly as many votes—and Social Democrats. With those parties decapitated, organized resistance ceased in a nation divided between a minority supporting Hitler and everyone else.

WJ ASTORE—The disasters of Afghanistan and Iraq, among others, are already being sent down the Memory Hole to oblivion. After all, there’s always another war looming, so we’re told, which serves to convince most Americans that a strong “defense” is needed. So why not support our troops. We’re going to need them to fight the next war, right?
This is precisely how we fail to support our troops. We don’t ask enough tough questions – and we don’t demand enough honest answers – about why the next war is necessary. How it serves national defense and the ideals of the U.S. Constitution. We are always pressured to salute smartly, even if we’ve never served in the military. And that way lies militaristic madness.
So, if I had to define how best to support our troops, I’d answer with another bumper sticker motto: Question Authority. Especially when it’s wrapped in the flag and camouflaged by a military uniform.

ERIC ZUESSE—Neither Russia nor China will accept being a part of the U.S. empire. The question now is whether or not the U.S. Government will finally accept that fact. For it to do so would violate all U.S. international policy since FDR died on 12 April 1945. This would be a turning-point in world history — the apogee of the American empire, which was first imposed by Truman and Eisenhower (mainly via coups). But, so, too, would Biden’s continuing forward with the Nuland-led Obama policy on Ukraine produce the apogee, which then would mean WW III (effectively, the end of human history). The American empire might end by the U.S. Government’s accepting that it’s downhill from here on, and the empire’s gradually fading away. Or else, it will end with WW III. This is the choice that now faces Biden. That decision will probably come under this President — and maybe very soon.

MICHAEL HUDSON—Chevron’s operation proved to be as disastrous an ecological horror story as it had caused in Ecuador. It was fined $303 million for violating environmental protection laws, but pressured President Nazarbayev to repeal the fine to show the world how ‘investor-friendly’ Kazakhstan was! When popular opposition arose to demand a fair contract, international investors, the response by international investors and Western government officials and their front men at the IMF, World Bank and USAID was to claim that renegotiation would violate the rule of law and sanctity of contracts.
