ALASTAIR CROOKE—Proponents of green policies have long warned (since before the 2016 U.S. elections) that the failure of investors to understand the radical impact of a switch from old (democracy spreading) values to ‘Saving the Planet’ has led to a huge overvaluation of fossil fuel-linked assets – based on investors’ assumptions that growth in worldwide consumption of these latter fuels must continue – and that governments will take only baby-steps to lessen it. Yet, a rapid transition to C02-free energy sources, potentially would leave behind a mountain of ‘stranded fossil fuel assets’, which would have to be written off because their underlying real value has evaporated.

JEFF MULLEN—This document is meant to explain and show the weaknesses in basic Libertarian Ideology. It is not intended to show one how to convince a Libertarian that s/he is wrong–Libertarianism requires a belief in magic (the magic of the “Free Market”), and nothing can convince a believer that there is no such thing as magic–rather, it is meant to give one the tools to show those considering Libertarian Ideology how it is wrong, and to prevent others from falling into the Libertarian trap. Libertarians are VERY good at using good-sounding words to make bad things seem preferable. This will help a skeptic to cut through it, and describe Libertarian memes more accurately than the Libertarians themselves.

RAMIN MAZAHERI—Increasing the concentration of power and money in the Western-led 1% is also the explanation for the US-Saudi petrodollar deal: what did the 1% care if consumer prices rose due to higher oil costs when the resulting hyper-financialisation created fabulous wealth for them?
When the dot-com bubble exploded a phony War on Islam was devised to redirect attention, and to solidly anchor the Pentagon’s collusion with the Western 1%, and to further concentrate the political and market power of the Western-led neo-aristocratic class.

CRAIG MURRAY—Baraitser was not making no attempt to conceal a hostility to the defence argument, and seemed irritated they had the temerity to make it. This burst out when discussing c), the Iraq war rules of engagement. Summers argued that these had not been solicited from Manning, but had rather been provided by Manning in an accompanying file along with the Collateral Murder video that showed the murder of Reuters journalists and children. Manning’s purpose, as she stated at her court martial, was to show that the Collateral Murder actions breached the rules of engagement, even though the Department of Defense claimed otherwise.
