Why U.S. Billionaires Could Destroy the Israel Lobby, But Don't This articled refutes the notion that the non-Jewish rulers of the United States are forced against their will by the Israel lobby to have a pro-Israel foreign policy. It shows that the entire U.S. ruling plutocracy has its own very rational (though immoral) reason for supporting Israel.

What Do "White Supremacists" Believe? This article is about the fact that white supremacist leaders with a very racist aim (and with great contempt for ordinary white people) use a non-racist idea to recruit working class whites. Knowing this is what makes it possible to defeat the white nationalist leaders.

Free Will: Why the Ruling Class Wants Us to Think It's an Illusion, and Why It's Not This article refutes the idea that free will is just an illusion. It also explains why newspapers and magazines (controlled by the ruling class) are promoting the "free will is an illusion" idea. And it shows that the premise underlying the "free will is an illusion" idea has no scientific basis and rests entirely on faith.

The Capitalist Big Lie about Human Nature This article refutes the notion that human behavior causes people to act mainly out of self-interest. This false idea is what apologists for capitalism rely upon, by claiming that capitalism is the only system that accepts greed as natural but turns it towards benefiting society, via Adam Smith's famous "Invisible Hand."

Here's How the Ruling Class USES the Left This article is about why good people are not winning the fight to make our society more equal and democratic. The reason is that our leaders--the Left--have a very different agenda, based on a very wrong and negative view of ordinary people.

Guns and the Working Class This article is about why the working class needs guns, not mainly to hunt or protect against crime, and not to defeat the 82nd Airborne Division. Why then? To demonstrate sufficient determination--in fighting to remove the plutocracy from power--to persuade the many members of the military forces (most of whom support that goal) to refuse orders to attack the revolutionaries and even use their weapons to help them win.

The U.S. Armed the Soviet Union During the 'Cold War' This article exposes the "Cold War" against the Soviet Union as a Big Lie. United States corporate and government rulers, far from fearing the Soviet Union, armed it from its 1917 revolution straight through the Cold War including the Korean and Vietnam war. Why? Because the Communists were useful to America's rulers: they were a bogeyman enemy to frighten Americans into accepting the warmongering military-industrial complex.

The Problem with the "Just for Show" Explanation of Trump's Missile Attack on Syria Trump did a 180 on his very popular anti-war ideology; that's not "just for show." He caved in to pressure from the Billionaire class.
