The Globalist Mindset

09/03/2014

If you love planet earth and the human race, may I humbly suggest corporate globalisation leading to a grotesque misappropriation of resources may not be such a good idea after all. However, some self-proclaimed progressives disagree. They somehow associate the onward march of transnational organisations, the proliferation of branded retail outlets and the relentless expansion of the non-productive hedonism business with a concept they like to call progress.

What's going on in Ukraine?

01/03/2014

All of sudden the world's media turns its attention to the transition of power in one of Europe’s most mysterious regions extending from Eastern Poland, Slovakia,Moldova and Romania in the West, Belarus to the north and the Russian Federation to the East.

The Sheer Arrogance of Tony Blair's Clone

08/09/2013

"But let me be clear - Britain may be a small island, but I would challenge anyone to find a country with a prouder history, a bigger heart or greater resilience.

So presumably thousands of years of Chinese, Indian or Middle Eastem history, literature, innovations count for little, and Britain's neighbours have little to teach us. Britain may have had its heyday in the 18th and 19th centuries, but today just builds on its past glory as a marketing tool.

Forerunners of Modern Globalisation

03/01/2011

Our species, homo sapiens sapiens, is now thought to have evolved at least 120,000 years ago with some recent finds in the Middle East dated to as long ago as 200,000 years ago. On that time scale, the Neolithic agrarian revolution, occurring in most parts of the more densely populated world between 15,000 and 5,000 years ago and only reaching some locales such as Australia, in the era of European colonisation.

Ubiquitous Assault on the Senses

11/12/2010
How will future generations view early 21st century Britain? An age of enlightenment that allowed more women than ever to work, redefined loud arguments as domestic violence, exposed childhood sexual abuse and extended the benefits of prosperity to more people than ever. This is the spin of the neo-liberal media, i.e. you've never had it so good or experienced such a wonderfully fair and harmonious society. Surely you don't want to return to the dark ages when parents routinely spanked their children at the slightest hint of disobedience and women were chained to the proverbial kitchen sink?

Clegg throws it all away

In Mr Rentoul's fantasy world, New Labour stands to the progressive left of the current Tory/LibDem management team. However, whenever they deviate from the party line on neoliberal globalisation, Mr Rentoul doesn't like it. How dare Nick Clegg suggest the oil-motivated invasion of Iraq was illegal? How dare anyone suggest that long-term environment sustainability is more important than short-term profits. NewLabour left this country in a huge mess, Mr Rentoul, with Europe's least sustainable economy, ...

More green ink on Kelly

No because you are sycophant unable to accept that your country commits war crimes for greed and doesn't give a damn about the long term security of its own people, only the profits of large multinationals.

All frontline soldiers 'to get psycho-screening in bid to cut combat stress'

One cannot help but notice all the ads for big pharma's products in the Independent's online edition. That's right: 1) Get a new generation hooked on war-themed fighting games (and rely on your friends in the PR industry to deny any adverse psychological effects). 2) Discourage critical thinking by spreading junk culture..... 3) Deny young people of any meaningful job prospects and bring in more migrants to fill vacancies once occupied by young natives.. 4) Advertise armed forces jobs... 5) Psycho-screen...

Oil firm wins battle to identify chatroom users

Would manipulative oil multinationals seek to stifle free speech? A conspiracy theory surely. Anyone who seriously thinks our benevolent corporate masters have evil intentions is seriously deluded and needs to consult her/his local Stasi official psychiatrist. These hackers are surely evil terrorists, probably racists and almost certainly a threat to our free-market democracy. Let's get back to watching TV, reading popular books, gambling online and playing war-themed video games, like all upstanding...

Kelly had heart attack, says pathologist

Ok, let's call it damage limitation and get the chattering classes to believe a version that is least detrimental to the UK's criminal ruling elite. The Independent's editors know most critically thinking readers (as opposed to those suffering from compulsive social conformity disorder) suspect some MI5/6 or CIA-types assassinated Kelly because he knew too much, having worked in Porton Down, the UK's bio-chemical warfare lab. Also his apparent tacit support for the UK government's stance can be explained...
