Why Worry About Total Surveillance When You're Just An Ordinary Joe?
(5 comments) We often hear no one need be afraid of state surveillance if they have nothing to hide. However, in a free society, this is profoundly untrue. As this article reveals, not only can the blackmail of others affect the innocent, but when the innocent find themselves thrust into political activism, they may find they do not look so innocent after all.

The CIA Dagestan, Chechnya, Tsarnaev Nexus
(8 comments) Examine the sources. Three different CIA links are known to the Tsarnaev brothers, who are accused of bombing the 2013 Boston Marathon. The Islamic "fighters" in Dagestan and Chechnya are long-championed by some factions in the United States, as were the Mujahadeen in Afghanistan (1979 - ?).

Is This the Man Who "Radicalized" Dzhokhar Tsarnaev?
(2 comments) Professor Brian Glyn Williams obscures his past links to the CIA and to the Jamestown Foundation, as he also obscures his personal relationship mentoring Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, in articles he has written on the Boston Marathon bombings. Which specific "fighters" and "commanders" did Mr. Williams recommend to Dzhokhar Tsarnaev that would cause him to lament to a journalist: "I hope I didn't contribute to it?"

Glorious Martial Law?
(8 comments) Friday in Boston looks like game over for liberty in the United States of America. Martial Law is the new normal. Not to mention the suspicious facts of the case of the brothers Tsarnaev, but don't worry. America is ordered not to think but to listen to authorities and to obey orders.

Arrest All Torturers
(2 comments) The government and Hollywood conspire to make torture acceptable,despite it being a felony crime punishable by 20 years and the death penalty if their torture victim dies (as some have already done). Covering up torture implicates high officials in crimes and makes them part of the conspiracy. Is this the kind of country you want to leave to your children?

Freedom From Religion
Freedom of Speech and Freedom of Religion are inextricably linked. To lose one is to lose the other and the result is a total loss of freedom on the way to theocracy. Reject all calls for destroying freedom of speech, despite their fevered pitch or violent character. Also -- Barack Obama after defending free speech goes on to lie his ass off at the United Nations, presenting a fictional world to the world.

"2016" a Fantasy From the Right Wing Machine?
(5 comments) Incompetent film propaganda from the plutocrats. More fantasy than Lord of the Rings. Less reality than the Matrix. Dinesh D'Souza believes that Barack Obama's long dead father controls the fate of the universe, like Darth Vader from beyond the grave. They must do a lot of drugs on the extreme right.

Sign of Elite Rule: Health Care Casino
The private for-profit health insurance system encourages classism, as corporate managers decide which level of health coverage their employees -- and their own ranks -- will be permitted to receive. This is one more area that elite rule is exercised and the population divided based upon class and status.

The First Casualty
(47 comments) The Syrian situation, documented and analyzed, is quite different than US and European media present in their one-sided propagandistic coverage. Syria has been under siege by well armed violent militias that cross the borders and kill Syrian troops, police and civilians -- for over one year -- yet this fact has been repeatedly censored from western audiences.

The Hunger Games (Take Two)
(1 comments) The Hunger Games delivers, and not just for the tween girl audience. It falls short of really ripping into the flesh of the matter, but then again there are at least two other novels to carry the story forward. It shoots a warning across the bow that the unquestioned power of the state leads to atrocity and servitude. Perhaps this somewhat blurry mirror will show young audiences a glimpse of what to be ever vigilant against.

The Most Fascistic Industry
(62 comments) The nuclear industry worldwide colludes with governments to force unnecessary risk onto the populations. This is fascism, a state-private partnership that increases profits for private shareholders by enforcing unwanted risk on citizens through government power. This system must be challenged and the nuclear plants shut down permanently.

Chris Hedges is Correct About Militant Anarchists
(6 comments) Violence is being argued by some anarchists, but Occupy is a nonviolent movement. Those who would derail nonviolent movements through reckless criminality should form their own movement and face the law enforcement apparatus by themselves without the luxury of having unwilling human shields. Knowing that that strategy is doomed to fail, these militants hide behind the integrity and courage of nonviolent activists.

Real, Clean Energy Alternatives: Part 3 - Wind Power
(2 comments) "(By) 2020 and beyond wind, wave and hydro are expected to be 4 cents/kWh or less." Why on earth would anyone risk their entire region to a nuclear plant? It's patently insane, even on economic grounds. A 2009 MIT study (Future of nuclear power) estimated the real cost of nuclear at "8.4 cents/kWe-h." Double!

Nuclear Catastrophe Imminent in Nebraska?
(3 comments) The plant was not actually "designed" for the 1014 ft flood level at all. Whether sufficient "improvements" to the original design have been implemented properly is anyone's guess. The plant was originally created to: "The precise level -- 1,009.5 feet -- is written into the plant's operating licenses as a flooding 'design basis' threat that the plant must be guarded against." (New York Times)
