The BBC Has a Duty to Enliven the Economic Debate

Our mainstream media, and particularly the broadcasting ones, conduct news and discussions within well defined limits and parameters, vindicating Noam Chomsky saying: "The smart way to keep people passive and obedient is to strictly limit the spectrum of acceptable opinion, but allow very lively debate within that spectrum."

Freihandel: USA für EU kein Rettungsanker, 22.06.2013 (Friedensratschlag)

Die USA sind für die EU kein Rettungsanker Handelsexperte der Linksfraktion im Europaparlament: Transatlantisches Freihandelsabkommen soll Dominanz in der Welt sichern * Mit dem Freihandelsabkommen EU-USA (Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership – TTIP) soll einer der stärksten gemeinsamen Märkte entstehen.

I didn’t plan on spending six years covering the war in Afghanistan. I went there in 2007 to make a film about the vicious fighting between undermanned, underequipped British forces and the Taliban in Helmand, Afghanistan’s most violent province. But I became obsessed with what I witnessed there—how different it was from the conflict’s portrayal in the media and in official government statements.

Washington’s Battle Over Syrian Foreign Policy: Will Hawks Or Doves Prevail? :: JapanFocus

Washington’s Battle Over Syrian Foreign Policy: Will Hawks Or Doves Prevail? :: JapanFocus | PR sold the world | Scoop.it

Like Putin’s policy in Russia, Obama’s Syrian policy is being tugged strenuously in Washington, both by hawks and by doves. On June 13, Obama handed two limited but ominous victories to the hawks: a finding of fact that the troops of Syria’s president Bashar al-Assad “have used chemical weapons [i.e. sarin] against rebel forces,” and a consequent decision “to begin supplying the rebels for the first time with small arms and ammunition.” - See more at: http://www.japanfocus.org/-Peter_Dale-Scott/3955#sthash.LOn2DcYy.dpuf

For established industries, the sharing marketplace — with rapidly shifting social, cultural, and technological disruptions — is forcing them to respond too. Never more true than in the financial sector. Does crowd funding threaten traditional funding sources indefinitely? We'll hear from the $$$ experts about the state of funding and financial models in The Sharing Economy.

Syria, spiral of war | openDemocracy

The provision of more sophisticated arms to Syria's rebels, in which Saudi Arabia is now deeply involved, will produce a more violent stalemate. The chances for an end to Syria's war, already slim, are diminishing. In early June 2013, it became clear that Bashar al-Assad's regime was proving itself capable of recapturing some ground previously lost and forcing back many of the rebel groups - perhaps in the process becoming more secure than at any time since the end of 2011. Barack Obama's administration, concerned about such developments - and in a context where Washington-Moscow discussions about a peace conference have made no headway - responded around the middle of the month by promoting the idea of a judicious arming of rebel forces. #Syria

Large Corporations Seek U.S.–European 'Free Trade Agreement' to Further Global Dominance | PR sold the world | Scoop.it
The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership is the latest plan of conglomerates to strengthen their grip over the planet. A corporate world order is emerging, and like any parasite, it is slowly killing off its host. Unfortunately, the "host" happens to be the planet, and all life upon and within it. So, while the extinction of the species will be the end result of passively accepting a corporate-driven world, on the other hand, it’s very profitable for those corporations and their shareholders.

Ann Fagan Ginger | Legal Activist - What a great woman

Ann Fagan Ginger | Legal Activist - What a great woman | PR sold the world | Scoop.it
BBR Warrior's insight:

Ann Fagan Ginger is a lawyer, scholar, author of 22 books, and one of the Guild's longest-serving members. In this interview she discusses her remarkable history as leading legal activist. Ginger persevered in the face of rampant sexism in and out of the Guild, appearing as the only female delegate at the first racially integrated meeting of lawyers in the South, arguing before the Supreme Court, and guiding the NLG through the Red Scare. Faced with hostility from the House Un-American Activities Committee, the FBI, and Attorney General Herbert Brownell, she successfully fought the listing of the NLG as a subversive organization and kept its organizational core intact.
