People Don’t Understand How Unfree We Already Are

Listen to a reading of this article: ❖ The biggest and most widespread blind spot among those who oppose totalitarian control by the powerful is the assumption that it has not already been achieved. We’ve been so busy watching out for the next overtly totalitarian dictatorship that wants to put the jackboot on our necks we never noticed the covert totalitarians sliding the shackles around our… → Read More

The Oligarchic Empire Is Actually Simple and Easy To Understand

Listen to a reading of this article: ❖ If you’re like me and spend entirely too much time on Political Twitter you may have recently observed a bunch of people saying you shouldn’t post your opinion about the Afghanistan situation unless you’re an expert who has studied the nation’s dynamics in depth. Like an empire invading a nation and murdering a bunch of people for decades is some super… → Read More

Afghanistan Shenanigans

Things have been moving very rapidly as Taliban forces immediately closed in on Kabul after the end of the occupation. The US is frantically evacuating people, former Afghan officials are fleeing the country, and a transition to Taliban control is a done deal. It’s long been obvious to anyone paying attention that the Taliban would regain control of the country when occupying western powers… → Read More

Caitlin Johnstone: How Long Before We Humans Are Being Policed by Robots?

The elites are seeking to normalize the use of police robots by calling them ‘dogs’ – but the machines are the vanguard of a dystopian future that will see them cement their power in place forever. Hawaii police are defending their use of pandemic relief funds for a robotic “police dog” made by Boston Dynamics which scans homeless people’s eyes to see if they have a fever. “If you’re homeless… → Read More

The US Government Threatens Tech Companies To Push Censorship Agendas

Listen to a reading of this article: ❖ The elephant in the room with the ongoing controversy about the Biden administration’s push for more internet censorship is the fact that both the US government and the Silicon Valley tech companies who are being pushed to censor are acutely aware that those companies can be brought to their knees by antitrust cases and other regulation if they don’t censor… → Read More

What Biden’s Warmongering Will Actually Look Like

There’s a news story about a US military convoy entering Syria being shared around social media with captions claiming that President Biden is already “invading” Syria which is getting tons of shares in both right-wing and left anti-imperialist circles. The virality of these shares has inspired clickbait titles like “Joe Biden Invades Syria with Convoy of US Troops and Choppers on First Full Day… → Read More

America Has No Allies, Only Hostages

The US-centralized empire functions like a giant blob that absorbs nations and turns them into imperial client states. Once absorbed, it is rare for a country to escape and rejoin other genuinely sovereign nations. The new president-elect of Bolivia, Luis Arce, has told the Spanish international news agency EFE that he intends to restore the nation’s relations with Cuba, Venezuela and Iran. This… → Read More

From Ego to Empire, All Our Problems Stem From the Impulse To Control

The human organism arrives in this world squishy, defenseless and easily startled, which it turns out is really starting things off on the wrong foot. Because of the size of our newly-evolved brains relative to the birth canal, humans have to give birth to what are essentially fetuses, far more helpless for a much longer time than the offspring of our animal cousins. While we are slowly… → Read More

Assange Trial Exposes False Partisan Narratives

The last two days of Julian Assange’s scandalously opaque and plainly rigged show trial have brought into focus the reality that the WikiLeaks founder’s plight is the exact inverse of what the mainstream partisan narratives assert in the nation that’s working to extradite him. A new article about the proceedings in The Evening Standard titled “Julian Assange ‘targeted as a political opponent of… → Read More

As Long as Mass Media Propaganda Exists, Democracy Is a Sham

A new Reuters/Ipsos poll has reportedly found that a majority of Americans believe the completely discredited narrative that the Russian government paid Taliban-linked fighters to kill the occupying forces of the US and its allies in Afghanistan. “A majority of Americans believe that Russia paid the Taliban to kill U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan last year amid negotiations to → Read More

This Russia-Afghanistan Story Is CIA Propaganda At Its Most Vile

All western mass media outlets are now shrieking about the story The New York Times first reported, citing zero evidence and naming zero sources, claiming intelligence says Russia paid out bounties to Taliban-linked fighters in Afghanistan for attacking the occupying forces of the US and its allies in Afghanistan. As of this writing, and probably forevermore, there have still → Read More

Prepare To Have Your Worldview Obliterated

The first draft of the civil rights-eroding USA PATRIOT Act was magically introduced one week after the 9/11 attacks. Legislators later admitted that they hadn’t even had time to read through the hundreds of pages of the history-shaping bill before passing it the next month, yet somehow its authors were able to gather all the necessary information and write the whole entire thing in a week.
