Reflections on the events in France

Reflections on the events in France | real utopias | Scoop.it

The Establishment’s only solution to the problems of society is repression, repression and yet more repression. The self-styled democratic parliamentarians – the “Left” as well as the Right – immediately fall over themselves in their haste to introduce more laws that restrict the rights of the citizen and undermine democracy in the name of defending democracy. The present deafening chorus of “defend the freedom of expression” will be followed, as night follows day, with new laws that restrict the freedom of expression and many other freedoms, not just (and not mainly) for crazed Jihadis, but for the French people in general and the French working class in particular.

The Entire World Is Under Siege - CounterPunch

The Entire World Is Under Siege - CounterPunch | real utopias | Scoop.it

With each new atrocity committed by Israel against the Palestinians & Occupied Territories of Palestine, propagandists and dictators everywhere grow bolder, ever more confidant in their own ability to show brazen, arrogant contempt for the basic welfare of the common man and woman. To quote an old cry against South African apartheid: “An Injury To One Is an Injury To All!” This unresolved crisis represents The Black Hole of the human spirit on our planet!

Krugman on War: Even the Best Mainstream Economists Write Nonsense - Huffington Post | real utopias | Scoop.it

In a recent column in the New York Times (aka the newspaper of record), Paul Krugman explained the causes of war. Since this is a rather important issue and of interest to readers of the real news, I want to convey Professor Krugman's insights to those that might have missed the article itself. Early in the article we are informed:

But actually — and I could not believe my eyes when I saw this, I checked my reading with major scholars and they confirmed it — actually God’s “covenant” in Genesis, exodus and Deuteronomy with the Jewish people is NOT ABOUT AN ETHNICITY AND NOT ABOUT A CONTRACT. IT IS ABOUT A WAY OF BEHAVING.

The Greanville Post —Vol. VIII- 2014 | Noam Chomsky: America Is the World Leader at Committing ‘Supreme International Crimes’ | real utopias | Scoop.it

It is therefore a mistake to remind readers daily of the Nuremberg judgment. Aggression is no longer the “supreme international crime.” It cannot compare with destruction of the lives of future generations to ensure bigger bonuses tomorrow.

The return of George Orwell and Big Brother's war on Palestine, Ukraine and ... - OpEdNews | real utopias | Scoop.it
The other night, I saw George Orwell's "1984" performed on the London stage. Although crying out for a contemporary interpretation, Orwell's warning about the future was presented as a period piece: remote, unthreatening, almost reassuring. It was as if Edward Snowden had revealed nothing, Big Brother was not now a digital eavesdropper and Orwell himself had never said, "To be corrupted by totalitarianism, one does not have to live in a totalitarian country."

Titillations of Nuclear War - CounterPunch

Titillations of Nuclear War - CounterPunch | real utopias | Scoop.it

For America, the prospect of the structural-ideological constancy of war preparation and occasional conflagration is a delight, conviction, compulsion. For how else demonstrate hegemony? How else, by arrogating to itself guardianship—and chief beneficiary—of the world system, legitimate, affirm, and secure the fruits of Exceptionalism? Beginning in the late-19th century, with the fusion of capitalism and national power, already prefigured in domestic expansion and railroad development, the earlier phrase, “Manifest Destiny,” albeit hackneyed and contrived from day one self-serving a ruling-class-in-formation and conveying moralistic ethnocentric content, accurately described the grandiosity of public policy to follow (up to the present and no doubt future). The psychopathology of the winner-take-all mental set fulfilled by the militarization of US capitalism has, since the end of World War II, created a closed system in which anticommunism—now counterterrorism—becomes CODE for stifling alternatives to ascendant monopoly capital and the internal regimentation of political-social thought.

"Who inside Germany was resisting the rise of Hitler and why were they not supported by Britain and France? Why did the Western Allies allow Hitler to take over Austria and Czechoslovakia? Why did Britain and France refuse to enter an anti fascist alliance with the Soviet Union? Why did Britain and France do nothing while Hitler conquered Denmark and Norway even though they had finally already declared war against Germany in 1939?"
