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. Series: No Rich and No Poor (12 Articles, 11001 views)
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."

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.
