True Believers and the U.S. Election

Eric HofferOne thing that Donald Trump has done is brought the U.S. version of “true believer” to the political forefront. This group of people was best described by Eric Hoffer (1898-1983). Hoffer was a largely self-educated, working-class, American social philosopher. His best-known work was entitled The True Believer: Thoughts on the Nature of Mass Movements, published in1951.

Deplorables, Delusionals and Demagogues United by a Flawed Foreign Policy

trump-supportersIf you are an alien, terrestrial or extraterrestrial, looking at our nation these days, you would be scratching your head trying to figure out why our country is known as the USA and not the DPA (Disunited Peoples of America). Only thing that appears to unite us – not all but most – is the love of empire and pride in a corporate-military war machine that mercilessly sucks a great part of our economic, intellectual and moral resources; truly impoverishing our people and making Americans, friends of some but enemies of most people around the world.

Shimon Peres - Obituary of a ‘Peace Politician’

"De mortuis nil nisi bene" is commonly translated in English with "Speak no ill of the dead". The headlines of German obituaries on Shimon Peres outbid themselves in adulation. President Obama, however, outbid even the Germans.

A Trump primer- part 1

The choice in this election is bad enough without the inevitable comparisons to Hitler that many, including the Forward, seem fond of making. This might be the appropriate time to heed Jon Stewart’s plea for an end to Read More...

The Saga of Sisyphus

Shimon Peres is a genius. A genius of impersonation. All his life he has worked on his public persona. The image replaced the man. Almost all the articles written about him since he fell ill are about the imagined person, not the real one.

Testing for the Mental Disabilities of U.S. Presidential Candidates

I would have hoped that any sensible American citizen would by now have been sufficiently scared by Donald Trump’s morbid flights of fancy, high school playground style bullying, outlandish threats and bluffs, unrealistic and unsavory promises to crush enemies and enrich workers, to put aside all their concerns about alternative candidates and refuse any temptation to cast a...

A Warming of US/Turkish Relations?

It may seem a bit strange that Recep Tayyip Erdoğan and Barack Obama had to travel all the way to Hangzhou, China to take a welcome step toward restoring good relations between the two countries. But this is the way with 21st century diplomacy.

Israel lobby confects another Labour racism row

by Jonathan Cook

It is difficult to ignore the shared agenda of the Blairites and Israel’s uncritical supporters in the Labour party as they seek to undermine Jeremy Corbyn’s leadership at every turn. The confected anti-Semitism “row” – claiming that the Labour party became a hotbed of anti-Jewish hatred the moment Corbyn took over – would look preposterous...

Political Revolution or Just Revolution?

I’ve seen the mainstream media critique the debate and an officially declared Hillary Clinton the winter. As far as I’m concerned, she is the winner of nothing. The American people are surely not the winners of anything. We have a pretentious narcissistic buffoon on the Republican side, and a war mongering neocon who uses the government as a cash cow on the other side.

Trump and Hillary Fiddle While Planet Burns

Monday night was more of evasion, distraction, and political fraud than anything resembling real debating - like all previous encounters of the same kind preceding them, demagoguery and bad theater instead of substance, failing to give voters real information on where candidates stand on major issues of our time.

Brazil’s Illegitimate President: Tainted by Corruption, Scorned at the UN, Praised by Joe Biden

Michel Temer heads Brazil’s illegitimately installed coup d’etat regime, a deplorable figure, widely reviled at home, scorned by six Latin and Central American nations at the UN’s 71st General Assembly session.
