Did you know the US Department of Defense used to be called the Department of War? It would be a much more honest label today for a military which virtually never operates in any way that could be described as defensive, with its operations focusing far outside of the nation’s borders against targets who pose no threat whatsoever to ordinary Americans.

People who are only just beginning to research what’s wrong with the world often hold an assumption that mainstream news reporters are just knowingly propagandizing people all the time. That they sit around scheming up ways to deceive their audiences into supporting war, oligarchy and oppression for the benefit of their plutocratic masters.Once you’ve learned a bit more you realize it’s not quite happening that way. Most...

It looks like a safe bet that Joe Biden will be sworn in on January 20th after successfully campaigning on returning the murderous and oppressive Orwellian US empire back to its pre-Trump “normal”.The problem with this, apart from the obvious fact that it was an embarrassingly close victory only made possible by the Covid outbreak, is that returning to the pre-Trump “normal” is returning to the exact positions which...

There are creatures the size of mountains swimming beneath the ice.There are babies laughing at things you can’t see.That quiet old woman there, sitting in the corner: she has seen some shit, man.The lushest plants have their roots in shit, and the lushest people, too.They do not rise above the shit, their roots dangling like car wash tentacles as they levitate in the air. They sink into it. They build their foundation in it. They do not...
