If humans were largely moral and ethical beings, then globalization could be a workable proposition. Unfortunately, the dark behavioral narcissism expressed by compulsive greed and an infinite appetite for power seems to have become the guiding precept of our collective nightmare.

This current United States presidential election cycle is completely out of the ordinary. Even though the division and contentions between Hillary Clinton's supporters and Donald Trump's supporters are not policy oriented, like they should be, they are nonetheless extremely vivid in the realm of rage and raw emotions. It appears that most Americans will be motivated to cast their ballots with hatred in their guts.

In United States politics, what worked like a charm for decades, especially with the fake left, was the lesser-of-two-evils argument. Not a vote for someone, but a vote against someone else. Once again it is at play in the 2016 election cycle, but with many new and unexpected twists.

As far as the Democratic Party nomination, let's face it, it is already a done deal...it was always Hillary Clinton's turn. It would be absurd, for example, to think that Bernie Sanders could win the key state of California from Clinton. The power brokers of the Hollywood machine, and their immense wealth and influence will make sure it doesn't happen.

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.

Gilbert Mercier interviews the Haitian-born author and scientist, Dady Chery, about the situation in Haiti since the earthquake of January 2010. This is a rare discussion of Haiti by someone who grew up in that country and has a profound knowledge, not only of the developments but also of their cultural and historical context. Chery is the author of the book "We Have Dared to Be Free: Haiti's Struggle Against Occupation."

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".

olice violence in the United States should not surprise anyone. In Ferguson, Missouri, we have witnessed the use against US citizens of Iraq-tested war technologies. On August 17, 2014, a police force using armored vehicles and military tactics fired rubber bullets and tear gas canisters at peaceful protesters who had been demanding justice

Global corporate empire: sovereign nations are the only obstacle
Imperialism has long been a collective disease for humanity. In its current perverse capitalist incarnation, imperialism's methods have become even more brutal and ruthless.
Corporate imperialism aims to break the national spirit. The few remaining sovereign nations are the final obstacles to the looming threat of a global transnational corporate empire.
