Quicklink: Two People Involved In Flint Water Investigation Found Dead - Quicklink:
The Flint Water Treatment Plant Foreman (an important part of the investigation) and a woman leading the Flint lead poisoning lawsuit were both found dead.This is not simply a water cleanliness issue. It is about allowing parts
of America to devolve into toxic cesspools, where problems are “solved”
with underhanded police-state tactics. In the span of a few weeks,
crucial files mysteriously disappeared from the Flint city hall, the
Water Treatment Plant Foreman died suddenly at age 43 and a woman
leading the lawsuit against Flint was murdered in her home.

Article: The Necessity of Not Voting Clinton.

Article: The Necessity of Not Voting Clinton. | Global politics | Scoop.it
Article: The Necessity of Not Voting Clinton. - Explanation of why NOT voting for Hillary Clinton in the general election, should she be the nominee, is essential.
Enrique Ferro's insight:
The media has consistently ignored, demeaned, trivialized and ridiculed Sanders, while extolling Clinton. The fact that only six corporations own over 90 percent of our mass media, and most of these corporations have contributed large amounts to the Clinton campaign and or the Clinton foundation, does not appear coincidental. So in response to the "sore loser" argument": "Your candidate lost, so you petulantly insist on being a sore loser and not supporting the winning candidate..." note that there was no fair contest, and so there can be no "sore loser." Not accepting the results of an unfair game is rational and responsible. It is those making the sore loser arguments who are themselves being irresponsible.

Dear Democrats: Stop Bullying Sanders Supporters into Backing Hillary Clinton

Dear Democrats: Stop Bullying Sanders Supporters into Backing Hillary Clinton | Global politics | Scoop.it
Bernie Sanders, on the other hand, has brought new blood and new ideas to the Democratic Party, and manages to fill arenas full of supporters and break voter turnout records in many of the states he’s won. Sanders is the first Democrat to bring New Deal policies back to the Democratic Party since the Clinton-led corporate takeover of the Democratic Party in the nineties.

Enrique Ferro's insight:
In 2016, Clinton’s favorability-unfavorability rating has been checked by pollsters twenty times. Clinton’s hasn’t been viewed favorably by a majority of respondents even once. More than that, her negative score has been in double-digits 85 percent of the time (and one of the three times it wasn’t, it was -9).

What is the Democratic Party Good For? Absolutely Nothing

What is the Democratic Party Good For? Absolutely Nothing | Global politics | Scoop.it
Think of Republicans and despair for the human race. Even the ones who otherwise seem morally and intellectually sound champion political views straight out of Morons R’Us. However, Democrats are worse — not morally or intellectually, of course; and neither are their views worse. But within the matrix of our semi-established two party system, Democrats do the most harm.

The Democratic Party is, by default, the political voice of organized labor and of social movements that fight for racial and gender equality, environmental sanity, and other worthy causes. Democrats can therefore do what Republicans cannot: integrate the victims of the status quo into a political consensus that serves and protects those who benefit most from it – the “one percent,” the “billionaire class.” They are good at this.
Enrique Ferro's insight:
"Even more than was the case under Obama, we should be grateful that she will seldom get her way: being clueless and inept, she has a knack for making everything she works on worse." Grateful? She leaves behind a trail of ruins and blood, and she lacks the conscience and compassion to look at the mirror.

Article: Luther: Savior of Christianity or Destroyer of It?

Article: Luther: Savior of Christianity or Destroyer of It? | Global politics | Scoop.it
Article: Luther: Savior of Christianity or Destroyer of It? - Kant was vague in his definition of Enlightenment, but that defect pales beside the monumental error committed by Nietzsche in his assessment of the historical role of Luther.
Enrique Ferro's insight:
Pre-Enlightenment (aka Traditional) society rested on four major assumptions: Revelation, Scripture, Tradition, and Authority. That is, there is a God with a personality and an agenda (Revelation), the existence of which we discover through a Scripture (Torah, Gospel, Kor'an), which cannot be read or understood without the light provided by Tradition (Oral Law, Magisterium, Hadith, Sunna), as that is made accessible to us by Authority figures (rabbi, priest, minister, mullah).

Civilian deaths in Syria surge as US-Russian brokered ceasefire unravels - World Socialist Web Site

Civilian deaths in Syria surge as US-Russian brokered ceasefire unravels - World Socialist Web Site | Global politics | Scoop.it
American support for the ceasefire was a tactical maneuver, aimed at buying time for US forces to prepare a renewed push.
Enrique Ferro's insight:
In contrast to the US media and the political establishment’s endless denunciations of Russia’s intervention in Syria, the essential cause for the breakdown of the cease-fire and slide back toward all-out civil and proxy war is the uncompromising determination of the US ruling class to overthrow the Assad government, toppling a crucial regional ally of both Russia and Iran and replacing it with an American puppet.
