  • Patching up the Cracks

    Since the First Supper served by the Community Kitchen last Wednesday, the organizers have been meeting with the discontented. Joegodson returned to his home community on Monday to help repair fissures that, left untended, threaten to topple efforts to rebuild and to unify.

  • Twenty-Two Reasons Why American Working People Hate the State

    The real issue is not that people are anti-state, but that the state is anti the majority of the people.

  • Sexuality’s ebb and flow

    One compelling question is thus whether capitalism contains the seeds or shackles of sexual liberation. This is no simple matter, and it merits close scrutiny.

  • Once more around the Bloc

    Our democratic freedoms hang by a narrow thread, and a police state is always near at hand — that is one of the lessons of the G20 debacle that unfolded in Toronto on June 26 and 27.

  • Mainstream media omits context and key facts on Cuba

    On July 8, the Washington Post lead story reported Cuba had released five political prisoners with assurances of forty-seven more to come in the near future.
