Ken Livingstone forced out of British Labour Party

Livingstone’s decision is an unpardonable retreat in the face of this witch hunt. But the moving force behind his resignation appears to have been Corbyn and his advisors. Corbyn never once came to Livingstone’s defence in the two years since his suspension and many of Corbyn’s allies, including Labour peer Shami Chakrabarti, the former director of Liberty, the civil and humanitarian rights advocacy group, backed the demand for his expulsion.

The Simulation of Democracy

CJ HOPKINS—The problem is that capitalism is never going to lead to actual democracy (i.e., government by and for the people). This is never going to happen. In fact, capitalism has already reached the limits of the freedom it can safely offer us. This freedom grants us the ability to make an ever-expanding variety of choices … none of which have much to do with democracy

A Dive Into Washington’s Swamp

MOON OF ALABAMA—There was no “Russian interference” in the U.S. election. All that Mueller found in one year of investigations was some minor old misbehavior by some Trump aides and a Russian Internet marketing company which tried to sell advertisements on its click-bait websites. The real collusion happened between the Trump family and Israel, Saudi Arabia and the UAE.

Those with access and influence over Trump, like Broidy and Nader, were hugely rewarded.

Question for Discussion: Is Russia an Adversary Nation?

GARY LEUPP—Most progressive people understand that all forms of racism, and misogyny, and homophobia, and Islamophobia, and anti-Semitism, are wrong. But Russophobia often gets a pass. It’s an easy form of bigotry, readily exploitable, still, almost three decades after the Soviet Union collapsed and Russia announced its embrace of a western-advised transition to full-blown capitalism (with horrible effects) before recovering under Putin. People who know little about the trajectory of Russian history in the last 25 years are snarling about how this country is our enemy. I disagree. I agree with Trump that it would be good to improve relations with Russia.
