US, UK And Anglosphere Human Rights Abuses
And War Crimes Trash Magna Carta 800th Anniversary
By Dr Gideon Polya

15 June 2015 marks the 800th anniversary of the signing of Magna Carta by King John at Runnymede. Magna Carta notably gave English "free men" freedom from arbitrary, non-judicial imprisonment, dispossession, outlawing, banishment or destruction by the ruler, a freedom that was variously progressively extended to all citizens and subjects in the Anglosphere over the next 8 centuries. However the US, UK, Apartheid Israel, and Australia have continued to grossly violate this freedom in the 21st century

Ignoring Reality, Subverting Morality: GMOs And The Neoliberal Apologists
By Colin Todhunter

Because any type of critical analysis that links the GMO issue with the system these neoliberal mouthpieces defend and which touches on the concerns outlined in this article is met with mockery and name calling from them - it's all 'anti-capitalist' twaddle or conspiracy theory mouthed by a bunch of 'green blob', immoral, self-serving hippies, so they say. They seem to think projection passes for debate. It doesn't

Where Do Ram And Allah Live?
By Ram Puniyani

Lord Ram and Allah are almighty and the mortals like us, including the breast beaters from communal formations, should prefer to see that the housing is provided to all the mortals, ordinary people so that they don't have to live on the pavements-slums and suffer the ignominy. Can one hope that rather than presenting the past in a one sided; divisive manner we look at the story from all the angles, and put forth the rational one. We need to cultivate our faith for well being of all our society as a whole on the lines of Vasudhaiva Kutumbkam

Rising Corporate Military Complex In India: A Critical Appraisal
By Rahul Varman

The enormous expenditure in the name of nation's security has remained opaque and mostly outside public scrutiny. Most of the data and information employed here are drawn from the print and web media, Government documents available in the public domain, and reports by consulting firms and policy institutions. One could find almost no research studies based on primary data – pointing to the abysmal failure of research institutions to study such a vital aspect of the Indian economy and polity
