January 6th: Portrait of an American Travesty

The January 6th insurrection was an American travesty and the pinnacle of Trumpism. The vile, xenophobic, reactionary effects Donald Trump and his policies had on these Far-Right hooligans came to a deadly, super-violent head that day. The riots were responsible for seven deaths, including Capitol Hill Police officers and Trump supporters. The footage of Capitol Hill Police so grossly outnumbered by the flag waiving rabble seemed too have a heavier

BBC: Part 2 – Wealthcare

The NHS 1948- ? The Beginning, The NHS came into being on the 5th of July 1948, and I followed behind, 59 days later. The number of mangled people returning from 2 world wars, barely a generation apart, might have added to the collective conscience of the nation too. It was governments and industrialists that started those wars and the public were starting to separate the facts from the fairy

BBC: The Propaganda Prostitutes Part 1

Introduction In the last 15 years of my working life I found myself reading books again, after a bookless half century. It was my work schedule that I have to thank for it. I became a consultant in the geophysical industry travelling worldwide, to places very remote, living in caravans, portacabins, ships and tents. Long hours in the evening needed filling. Passing through Amsterdams Schiphol airport, sometimes 4 times a

Russia vs Ukraine: War Crimes, Propaganda and the Scourge of Modern Warfare

Russia vs Ukraine. We hear so many reports of genocide and war crimes from the iron tentacles of the Mainstream Media you'd think Mariupol is comparable to Riga, Latvia circa 1941. And folks it's certainly far from that. I've seen the footage from Bucha, whom do we believe when anyone with a camera and youtube account these days are deemed journalists? The reports from "professional" news source, Reuters are at

The Proxy War in Ukraine

This is a Twitter thread posted by @NatalieStrecke which asks why "The Left" seems to always adopt a fixed "For/Against "stance for any set of given circumstances. We posted it in the light of a Twitter pile-on we experienced the other day relating to the Ukraine war. Apparently our efforts to point out that the US was up to its neck in building the situation that led to the war

A Love Letter to all Draft Dodgers

The New York Times is naming and shaming Ukrainian men who've fled the country rather than stay and kill Russians for Washington, because it was illegal for men of military age to leave, and because their countrymen are angry at them, and because it's the New York Times. They shamed Vova Klever, who said, "Violence is not my weapon." They shamed Volodymyr Danuliv, age 50, who said, "I can’t shoot Russian people." They shamed

Propaganda 101

Acknowledgement To get this out of the way I want to start with an acknowledgement to a book  I re-read recently called “Trust Us We’re Experts” by Sheldon Rampton and John Stauber, published 2002 - eISBN: 978-1-101-14406-0. The whole book is excellent, and an eye-opener for anyone interested in how large groups of people can be manipulated by propaganda and what it can lead to. The last Chapter (11) is titled “Questioning

Has the American Dream Become a Nightmare?

The American Dream can be summed up currently by the jobs report in November of 2021. According to a recent New York Times piece, 4.5 million Americans wilfully quit their jobs. What could possibly compel such record numbers of people to walk out of their place of employment and into an immediate state of uncertainty? Is it reasonable to believe the human race has become so incredibly lazy and indifferent that
