  • Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP): Pandora’s Box of Corporate Power | Mickey Z.

    Photo credit: Mickey Z.

    Aug. 13, 2014 (Archdruid Report) -- Civilizations normally leave a damaged environment behind them when they fall, and ours shows every sign of following that wearily familiar pattern.

  • Washington Chokes Truth With Lies | Paul Craig Roberts

    Aug. 13, 2014 (PaulCraigRoberts) -- Are Western propagandists fooling anyone but themselves? The latest absurdity coming out of Ukraine, the EU and Washington is that the humanitarian aid that Russia and the Red Cross are trucking into the former Russian territories that comprise eastern Ukraine is a trick, a deception, a pretext for Russia’s invasion forces.

    Credited to ideas.etublogs.usj.edu.lb Aug. 6, 2014 ( Archdruid Report ) -- The vagaries of global climate set in motion by our species’ frankly brainless maltreatment of the only atmosphere we’ve got, the subject of last week’s post here , have another dimension that bears close watching.
