THE MORTAL GOD DROPS ITS MASK

I know many of us are still trying to make sense of the seemingly insane, and definitely disturbing, political developments of the past several years. Left and right, up and down, seem all jumbled up. Perhaps most disorienting has been the rapidity of the changes in how ‘Western Liberal Democracies’ behave as political actors. Personally, for most of my life, […]

Russell Brand: What’s Really Going On?

It’s fascinating to watch how easy it is for the corporate media’s institutional bias to successfully direct the dumb gaze of the sleepwalkers to its chosen angle so that the parameters of debate are squeezed and narrowed until they include only its own perspective. In this case it’s, ‘is Russell Brand a hypocrite?’

BSNews at the Save Our Ticket Offices Rally

The Somme: A Deeper Question

I’ve just been reading, during the commemorations for the Battle of the Somme, Wilfred Owen’s poem ‘Anthem For Doomed Youth’ about ‘these who die as cattle’. A comment by a member of the fantastic group, Veterans For Peace UK, on Facebook about the ceremonies says, ‘All the talk of fallen and sacrifice gets me.

The Labour Files: Where is Democracy? Mainstream Media Blackout.

Corporate media silence as biggest leak in British political history reveals it’s implicated with politicians in a scandal of epic proportions. All hell should have broken loose in the last three days as Al Jazeera published in succession three videos of their investigation into leaks from inside the UK Labour Party.

Truckers protest. Canada Resists. Ottawa, January 29, 2022. The mainstream headlines with “sightings” of Confederate flags (some articles actually state “a flag”, meaning a single sighting) is strategic.
