Defending Social Investment in Greece: Nicaragua's ALBA Example

Defending Social Investment in Greece: Nicaragua's ALBA Example | Global politics | Scoop.it
Enrique Ferro's insight:

For now, the Greek government has accepted the kind of quasi-colonial terms imposed by the U.S .government in the first decades of the 20th Century on countries throughout Central America and the Caribbean. Back then, the U.S. government sent in its military to enforce the appropriation of tax and customs revenues in payment of sovereign debt owed to Wall Street. At the time, U.S. Marine commander General Smedley Butler was very clear about his role as a gangster-like enforcer and wrote about it in his book “War Is a Racket.”

Treason Charges: What Lurks Behind the Bizarre Allegations:   Information Clearing House - ICH

Enrique Ferro's insight:

The proud and honest negotiation that the SYRIZA government conducted from the first day we were elected has already changed Europe’s public debates for the better. The debate about the democratic deficit afflicting the Eurozone is now unstoppable. Alas, the troika’s domestic cheerleaders do not seem able to bear this historic success. Their efforts to criminalise it will crash on the same shoals that wrecked their blatant propaganda campaign against the ‘No’ vote in the 5thJuly referendum: the great majority of the fearless Greek people.

Do We Care More About a Dead Lion, or Dead Children?:   Information Clearing House - ICH

Do We Care More About a Dead Lion, or Dead Children?:   Information Clearing House - ICH | Global politics | Scoop.it
Cecil has a name. He cannot be forgotten unlike those other, nameless, lions.

Dr. Palmer, a long-time hunting enthusiast, did not regret killing a lion but he regretted killing Cecil. Speaking to the Star Tribune, Dr. Palmer said, “I had no idea that the lion I took was a known, local favorite.”

This is the heart of the problem - if you’re killed, it helps to be a celebrity, whether human or beast.

For the rest -- the three-quarters of a million black men incarcerated in the U.S, the tens of thousands of child brides in Bangladesh, the 3000 African children dying daily of malaria -- suffering goes mostly unnoted and unheard.
