“War is the father of all things” (Heraclitus) – and also of women’s liberation. Its reality in the 21st century has endowed us with its latest stage (for now). After the fairer sex has already refuted all the prejudices about female inhibitions in the prisons of Abu Graibh in the most illustrative way, it is only logical that the US Army has opened the way for them to conquer other male domains.
A stunning Ministry of Foreign Affairs report on Prime Minister Medvedev’s agenda at the World Economic Forum this week states that Russia will warn President Obama that the “time has come” for the world to know the truth about aliens, and if the United States won’t participate in the announcement, the Kremlin will do so on its own.

Ezra Levant of sunnewsnetwork.ca did a very good job of explaining Treaty 9 between the Government of Canada and First Nations in 1905. Except Ezra forgot one little detail. The diaries of Daniel G. MacMartin.
For over fifty years, Noam Chomsky has been exposing the crimes of the United States military across the world. Less well known is the fact that throughout this time, he was working in an electronics laboratory funded primarily by that same military.

Netanyahu’s extreme right-wing government has now announced that this is just the beginning of a major offensive, leaving the possibility of an invasion of Gaza with ground troops, for which, 75,000 soldiers have already been called up.

How Not to Do Another New Reading of Marx’s Capital: On an Introduction to the Three Volumes of Karl Marx’s Capital by Michael Heinrich
Karl Marx’s Capital can be an opaque work, even if it strives to develop it’s arguments as simply as possible. It’s no accident that there are 150 years of politically inspired misunderstandings by dubious friends and outright enemies of it’s pages which seem to offer enlightenment about the thrust of Marx’s “critique of political economy” and what Capital is saying; that’s why interpretive commentary is so often necessary, especially as contributions to it’s exegesis come on the market which simply no longer deserve to be apologetically called misunderstandings.
