Don’t Vote for a Psychopath: Tyranny at the Hands of a Psychopathic Government

    Don’t Vote for a Psychopath: Tyranny at the Hands of a Psychopathic Government

Politicians are more likely than people in the general population to be sociopaths. “I think you would find no expert in the field of sociopathy/psychopathy/antisocial personality disorder who would dispute this… That a small minority of human beings literally have no conscience was and is a bitter pill for our society to swallow — but…

Chris Hedges: Trump’s Barrett Nomination Another Step Toward Christian Fascism

    Chris Hedges: Trump’s Barrett Nomination Another Step Toward Christian Fascism

Princeton, New Jersey (Scheerpost) — The Christian Right is content to have the focus on Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett revolve around her opposition to abortion and membership in People of Praise, a far-right Catholic cult that practices “speaking in tongues.” What it does not want examined is her abject subservience to corporate power, her…

Civil Rights Groups Are Finally Waking Up to the ADL’s Right Wing Agenda

    Civil Rights Groups Are Finally Waking Up to the ADL’s Right Wing Agenda

As people in the U.S. and around the world try to make sense of the mud wrestling match – also known as the first presidential debate of 2020 – one racist organization is getting great exposure. I am not referring here to any of the “usual suspects” that Trump would not condemn, like Proud Boys…

Don’t Be Fooled: The 2020 Election Has Already Been Decided

  Don’t Be Fooled: The 2020 Election Has Already Been Decided

Republicans and Democrats alike fear that the other party will attempt to hijack this election. President Trump is convinced that mail-in ballots are a scam except in Florida, where it’s safe to vote by mail because of its “great Republican governor.” The FBI is worried about foreign hackers continuing to target and exploit vulnerabilities in the…

Lee Camp: Woodward Accidentally Reveals He’s No Different Than “Super Villain” Julian Assange

  Lee Camp: Woodward Accidentally Reveals He’s No Different Than “Super Villain” Julian Assange

The completely fair super awesome trial of Julian Assange continues in the U.K. as I write this. It’s a beautiful blend of the works of Kafka, Stalin and Joseph Heller. Seeing as Julian is kept in a glass container in the courtroom, like a captured cockroach, maybe Kafka wins the day. The court clearly must…

Chris Hedges: The Cost of Resistance

  Chris Hedges: The Cost of Resistance

Princeton, New Jersey (Scheerpost) — Two of the rebels I admire most, Julian Assange, the WikiLeaks publisher, and Roger Hallam, the co-founder of Extinction Rebellion, are in jail in Britain. That should not be surprising. You can measure the effectiveness of resistance by the fury of the response. Julian courageously exposed the lies, deceit, war crimes…

More Than Just Statistics: On the Future of the Palestinian Discourse 

  More Than Just Statistics: On the Future of the Palestinian Discourse 

Palestine can never be truly understood through numbers, because numbers are dehumanizing, impersonal, and, when necessary, can also be contrived to mean something else entirely. Numbers are not meant to tell the story of the human condition, nor should they ever serve as a substitute for emotions. Indeed, the stories of life, death – and…

The Final Nail: COVID-19 Marks the End of Democratic Socialism in Sweden

  The Final Nail: COVID-19 Marks the End of Democratic Socialism in Sweden

From Djurgården, I walk along the water on Strandvägen – a rising fall whips in a determined wind across the water, slicing at remnants of summer and carving pathways around centuries-old buildings. Colors like Nordic interior design catalogs look like they’ve been stirred among clouds – a muted vibrance that evokes a calm and stoic…
