Smash NATO Before It's Too Late
By Dr. Ludwig Watzal

The North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) is a war-prone institution that poses the biggest threat to world peace. Since the disappearance of the Soviet Union, which turns out to be the greatest disaster for the stability of the international system, NATO expansionism and aggression is rampant. Although NATO was established to contain the Soviet Union, in reality, however, it has always been a complacent vehicle for U. S. hegemony

Update To US War Manual Makes It Easier To Defend Killing Journalists
By Robert Barsocchini

"The classification of journalists as 'unprivileged belligerents' is leading experts to conclude that the U.S. Department of Defense has given the green light for soldiers to kill journalists." The classification could also be used to justify the continuation and/or extension of other types of illegal treatment of journalists, such as torture or indefinite imprisonment, which the US practices

The Day The Earth Died: And Why Sierra Club, Greenpeace, Etc., Were Virtually Silent About It
By Eric Zuesse

What the U.S. Senate did on 23 June 2015 was to hand America's sovereignty over to international corporations. It gave President Obama what he had been seeking with unprecedented intensity, and which he has called his "legacy": it's the power to transfer lots of America's democratic national sovereignty over to international corporations — that is, to the roughly 100 individuals on this planet who own the controlling blocks of stock in the world's large international corporations, the people who are the real beneficiaries in all of this

It's Life's fatality, a growth that can only be sustained with unsustainable fossil fuel that's also changing the chemical composition of the biosphere. That change took only two century, but for nature to revert back to a benign state will take millennium, or never if we don't act soon

Veganism, Harm Reduction, Moral Baselines, etc.
By Mickey Z.

The basic goal of my individual choices is harm reduction. I have no illusions I can decrease suffering but I know I can put some of my values into practice by making conscious anti-exploitation choices, e.g. not using my meager money to support sweatshops or factory farms; circuses or the automobile culture; chemical manufacturers or vivisection labs; and so on

Praful Bidwai Is No More: Rest in Peace Comrade
By Subhash Gatade

Praful will be missed by thousands and thousands of his readers (this pen pusher included) who were 'groomed' by him in a career spanning more than four decades. For them he was one such voice who remained uncompromising in his strident criticism of communal fundamentalisms of various kinds and the crony capitalism which is having a field day these days. He was a leading voice for nuclear disarmament and peace as well and had written extensively on it
