  • President Trump Against the World Order

    Political leaders, media moguls and journalists have saturated the public throughout the world with claims and accusations that President Trump is destroying the World Order, undermining historic alliances, western values, and violating national and international constitutions and institutions. In the United States, legislators, judges and leaders from both parties have accused President Trump of being a traitor for fraternizing and serving as a tool of Russian President Putin.

  • Immigration: Western Wars and Imperial Exploitation Uproot Millions

    In this paper we will discuss the reasons behind the massification of immigration, focusing on several issues, namely imperial wars, multi-national corporate expansion, the decline of the anti-war movements in the US and Western Europe, the weakness of the trade union and solidarity movements. We will proceed by identifying the major countries affected by US and EU wars leading to massive immigration, and then turn to the western powers forcing refugees to ‘follow’ the flows of profits.

  • President Trump: Nationalist Capitalism, An Alternative to Globalization

    During his inaugural speech, President Trump clearly and forcefully outlined the strategic political-economic policies he will pursue over the next four years. Anti-Trump journalists, academics and experts, who appear in the Financial Times, New York Times and the Washington Post have repeatedly distorted and lied about the President’s program as well as his critique of existing and past policies.

  • China’s Pivot to World Markets, Washington’s Pivot to World Wars

    While President Obama’s “pivot to Asia” has been largely a wasteful military strategy to encircle and intimidate China, Beijing’s “pivot to markets” has successfully enhanced its economic competitiveness. As a result, over the past decade, China’s growth rate is three times that of the US; and in the next decade China will double the US in ‘robotizing’ its productive economy.

  • Polarization and the Powder Keg

    A ‘charismatic leader’ could emerge and bridge the different constituencies – downwardly mobile workers, militant blacks and politically disenfranchised activists may merge at some point around such a leader. But unless ‘the leader’ is harnessed to a powerful organized movement and directed by activist communities the threat of betrayal remains a real possibility.

  • Anglo-America: Regression and Reversion in the Modern World

    The Anglo-American drive to establish a global regressive social order has pushed billions of workers on five continents into destitution, insecurity and lifelong exploitation. The capitalist world rules by fiat and violence, declaring that social regression and worker repression are the ‘wave of the future’. For the elite, the proper order of the universe is being ‘restored’.

  • Europe’s Islamist Legionnaires Come Home to Fight

    The terror bombings in Paris and Brussels have raised a cacophony of voices, ranging from state officials, Prime Ministers and Presidents, to academics, journalists and media consultants. Tons of ink and print have focused on the psychology, networks and operations of the alleged perpetrators – radicalized young Muslim citizens of the EU.

  • Twilight of the Idols: Rise and Fall of the Personalist Left

    They fell because they lost competitive elections, not because of US invasions or military coups. These same leftist leaders, who had successfully defeated coups and withstood gross US political intervention via AID, NED, the DEA and other US government agencies, lost at the ballot box.

  • Presidential Elections 2016: The Revolt of the Masses

    Clearly the established political machinery – party elites and their corporate backers - have (in part) lost control of the nomination process and confront ‘unwanted’ candidates who are campaigning with programs and pronouncements that polarize the electorate.
