Paris Attack Will Foster an Orwellian Police State Just like 9/11 in the United States, it seems that the way France's bloody Friday will be exploited matters more than the tragedy itself. There is no better justification to crack down on civil liberty, freedom and other principles that define the essence of democracy than the good old permanent global war on terror.

New Orleans a Decade after Katrina: 'Waiting for Godot' Courtesy of Disaster Capitalism For me, Katrina's arrival to the Crescent City was always personal. I used to own a place in New Orleans.

US Military and NATO: Praetorian Guard of the Orwellian Empire even as the US has projected its power worldwide through military might, its clever ideologues have managed to convince a large portion of their public that their ambitions for global hegemony are altruistic and benevolent. This dichotomy between the fictional discourse and the brutal reality of US imperialism, applied globally since 1945, is more blatant than George Orwell's worse fears expressed in "1984".

The few remaining sovereign nations are the final obstacles to the looming threat of a global transnational corporate empire.
