LEO ZHAO—Other contradictions include those which result from the strict non-interference in the affairs of foreign states, which has characterised Chinese foreign policy for thousands of years, and the prioritising of larger international trade relationships over ideological conflicts. One example is unscrupulous business deals with right-wing or even fascist governments, such as Saudi Arabia or Israel. The “live and let live” ethic of this modus operandi even applies to ideological enemies: China also trades with the biggest terrorist organisation in the world, the USA, without even criticising its long list of illegal wars and heinous crimes against humanity.

ERIC SCHECHTER—leftymathprof on Oct 23, 2018— For 200,000 years we were hunter-gatherers. We shared everything of importance, and cooperated without hierarchy, and we’re still capable of that. But 12,000 years ago, when we started farming, we also began separateness, hierarchy, and property, which I’ll discuss. Those have caused all our problems — alienation, inequality, externalities, war, poverty, plutocracy, racism, sexism, bullying, ecocide. The first step in fixing all this is to get more people talking about it. Transcript and related links at Eric’s Rants and Videos blog.
KENNETH ORPHAN—Today the legacy of America’s racist beginnings can be seen in its institutions that carry out a modern day version of lynching in the form of harassment, incarceration and police brutality. Children like Tamir Rice are among the victims of a system that justifies this continued violence in the name of public safety. It should come as no surprise, then, that Teresa Klein called the police after her spurious claim in a New York deli. She was confident of her social position and, after all, why shouldn’t she be?

P. GREANVILLE—Confronting organised human cruelty and exploitation of animals is always shocking. Exposés like this appear to many people as “strident”, tedius and tiresome appeals by people who “can’t tell the difference” between real urgent priorities (you name the human cause) and the plight of billions of animals, whose mindboggling suffering is automatically relegated to secondary or tertiary levels of importance. That kind of reasoning is grounded in false premises. As we have said elsewhere, being a supporter of animal liberation is today being a consistent ecologist, for no one can think herself or himself a serious environmentalist while munching on steak, eggs and stuffing himself with burgers. It just doesn’t add up. For the animal production industry in our modern world is an industry whose effects on our climate are as grave if not more deleterious than all the vehicular emissions in our planet, and other activities connected with the production of “greenhouse gases” starting with the petroleum industry, an industry that should have been retired decades ago…

This video—published on a US, unapologetically imperialist platform owned by Google—has a huge majority of comments supporting the Russian position and castigating the American (ruling class) duplicity and warmongering behaviour. This is healthy to say the least, as the comments incude the opinions of many sincere Americans. Apparently, the criminal lies and excesses of the empire have finally created (along with the Internet) a veritable transnational audience where old-fashioned nationalism no longer holds as it used to. And that is healthy for the human race.
