1 in 46 million: Vanechka has one of the rarest immune deficiencies on Earth | Global politics | Scoop.it

The Islamic State and the Terrible Twos

The Islamic State and the Terrible Twos | Global politics | Scoop.it
Liberation movements want a place at the table. The Islamic State, on the other hand, wants to destroy the table. The Islamic State isn't simply an insurgency. Though it certainly aspires to overthrow the current regimes in Damascus and Baghdad, it doesn't have any particular attachment to this territory. It maintains a warm spot for the holy sites in Saudi Arabia. Otherwise, it doesn't care about national boundaries.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

Think of ISIS as a computer virus. It aspires to infect computers and websites wherever code is vulnerable and bring the entire system crashing down. The machete-wielding militants of ISIS are hackers in more ways than one.

How to Exacerbate a Crisis
Enrique Ferro's insight:

The results of this program, and of the help it provided, speak for themselves. Greece’s economy contracted by 27 per cent, and the debt rose to 320 billion, despite a partial write-off. From an original 60 per cent of GDP, the debt thus reached 175 per cent. Meanwhile, neither the Troika nor the previous Greek government acknowledged the obvious failure. The Troika not only insisted on continuing and even radicalising its clearly pointless actions, but also proposed treating the economic ills of other eurozone countries (Italy, Spain and Portugal) on the basis of the Greek model.

Michael Grunwald at Politico.com reports the content of a portion of the TPP that he has seen, but tells me that he does not have permission to post the original text. Drug prices are kept sky-high in the US, while in the rest of the world, competition by generic manufacturers offers equivalent products at a fraction of the price. There is a thriving Internet-based business re-importing drugs to the US that have been forbidden for domestic sale. If TPP passes, not only will the

Article: Why Not?

Article: Why Not? | Global politics | Scoop.it
We must send a simple message to the billionaire class: You can't have it all. They will argue, of course. So will the politicians who serve them. They will insist that we can't do better, that we can't have the same basic rights as citizens of other countries. It's time to ask them, and ourselves, a simple but very important question: Why not?
