Jimmy Dore and Chris Hedges try to sort out the many reasons why America is in revolt, drowning in social injustice and inequality, institutionalised violence and corruption, and a glaring lack of even essential services like universal healthcare. American cities and entire regions and states, and hunreds of millions of Americans have been hurt and damaged by capitalism, their social fabric rent and central institutions hollowed by capitalism. So now the people are in the streets, but this is not a revolution. This is only leaderless spontaneism. The system can easily overcome that. A different kind of social and political organising are needed to effect serious changes, and America is still a far cry from that desperately needed point.

A simply amazing interview with one of the most amazing journalists around, Whitney Webb, whose work easily outstrips in quality and importance even that of legendary figures like the Watergate reporters, after all blowing the whistle on a mere intramural dirty trick inside the same mafia.

ANGEL GUERRA CABRERA—The history of terrorism against Cuba and, in particular, against its diplomatic headquarters, is a long one.

If this attack is not investigated and cleared up in accordance with the laws of the United States and the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations, it will set a terrible precedent.

WAYNE MADSEN—Since the 1970s, there have been several cases of religious cults either dabbling in biological warfare research or engaged in deploying it. The cults involved include the Japanese Aum Shinrikyo movement, the Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh cult, the “People’s Temple” of Reverend Jim Jones, and the one that requires a much closer investigation after the spread of Covid-19, the Chinese Falun Gong.

DANY HAIPHONG—The COVID-19 pandemic has laid bare the contradictions of U.S. imperialism, including those that continue to render the American left politically isolated and ineffectual. China has found itself at the center of this process. U.S. imperialism has successfully convinced many of its so-called “citizens” to believe that the U.S. government is the principal arbiter of bourgeois freedoms such as the right to individual liberty and free speech. China, on the other hand, has long been depicted by the U.S. ruling class as an “authoritarian regime” where the rights of individuals are crushed under the weight of a centralized state
