When America was Great

If you ask anyone where democracy began, most people will say Greece. But this overlooks many ancient democracies around the world. Australia had a democratic, egalitarian, society, when Captain Cook landed, and it was probably that way for many millennia. Seeing it in practice, one English writer thought it ‘remarkable, that perhaps the highest form […]

Standing Up For Palestine

I wrote an article recently to bring attention to the media silence on the Palestinian prisoners’ hunger strike. Of course as soon as the strike ended after 41 days, some of the mainstream media then reported on it. No surprise there. No surprise either to the reaction on Facebook – overwhelming support from people who […]

Palestinian Prisoners’ Hunger Strike Ignored by Mainstream Media

Apparently a hunger strike by over 1000 Palestinian prisoners, under way since April 17th, is not newsworthy.

Mathew 13:13

This is why I speak to them in parables, because seeing they do not see, and hearing they do not hear, nor do they understand.

Two cheeks of the same arse

The borrower is servant to the lender, and America is servant to the Federal Reserve Bank. So I cannot see how it matters materially whether you vote for Clinton or Trump.   They are both prostitutes for the financial system, a pair of shills. And what a pantomime the presidential race is! X-Factor and The […]

meanwhile…back in Yemen

140 people were killed and over 500 injured when at least one Saudi jet attacked the hall where people were attending a wake for the father of Brigadier Jalal al-Ruweishan, of the Houthi-led government in Yemen. After initially denying the attack, a statement from the Arab Coalition admitted to it, saying it was due to […]
