    July 23, 2014 ( Archdruid Report ) -- I try to wear my archdruid’s hat lightly in these essays, but every so often I field questions that touch directly on the issues of ultimate meaning that our culture, however clumsily, classifies as “religious.” Two comments in response to the post here two weeks ago raised such issues, in a way that’s relevant enough to this series of posts and important eno...

  • War Zones | James Howard Kunstler

    James Howard Kunstler -- World News Trust July 21, 2014 Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu summed it up the other day when he said, “We use our rockets to protect our women and children; they use their women and children to protect their rockets.” Some time ago, the Left adopted the Palestinians as their pet oppressed minority group so there is nothing that Israel might do that will be ok...

  • What Happened to the Malaysian Airliner? | Paul Craig Roberts

    July 19, 2014 (PaulCraigRoberts.org) -- Washington’s propaganda machine is in such high gear that we are in danger of losing the facts that we do have.

  • Smile For The Aliens | John Michael Greer

    July 16, 2014 (Archdruid Report) -- Last week’s post , with its uncompromising portrayal of what descent into a dark age looks like, fielded the usual quota of voices insisting that it’s different this time. It’s a familiar chorus, and I confess to a certain wry amusement in watching so many changes get rung on what, after all, is ultimately a non sequitur. Grant that it’s different this time: so...
