Expediency: the Death of Ideology

budgie | While the forces of the traditional ‘left’ argue and analyse themselves into irrelevance (out of existence) the expedient right rumbles forward like a juggernaut. The left has been overwhelmed by simple expediency, the ‘whatever it takes’ (just get the job done) mentality is winning the day. Political correctness has all but destroyed the left whereas the right streaks ahead unburdened by any ethical issues. Ideology has been completely abandoned in favour of strategy. Any semblance to ideology is merely coincidental or a ruse/distraction. more...  1 Comments

Symbiosis: Religion and the State

Kingfisher | China recently hosted the international Buddhist forum, a communist government openly courting religion! The Church of England, not to be outdone by a bunch of commos, publicly denounced Capitalism and attributed the huge disparity in social circumstances to that ideology of inequity and avarice. No one can claim that the Church of England doesn’t get a point, even if it takes a few hundred years! [Regardless of the vocal gesture or feign, action never follows the odd theological comment against the State]. more...  0 Comments

Plagiarism is just the tip of the iceberg

Suhayl Saadi | Books are part of the information complex. Therefore, whoever controls books controls the flow of information and ideas. This means that the transnational bookselling industries are critically important to the concepts that frame and define our civilisation. We need to turn the spotlilight onto the people who determine what we are allowed to read.

Concert against Iraq war, tomorrow (Sat) at 6 pm

Sukato | Tribeca Performing Arts Center presents "Axis of Beauty."

Poet/musician Kala Pierson and singer/instrumentalist Sukato join in a multimedia collaboration in response to the Iraq war. This work will feature recorded voices of Iraqis recounting their daily lives through the U.S. invasion and occupation. The "axis of beauty" is an alternative worldview to the bellicose ideology of the "axis of evil" of current U.S. foreign policy. In place of the reductive "clash of civilizations" are aural snapshots of Iraqis coping with unimaginable bombardment, while clinging to their cultural heritage for solace and affirmation in a world turned upside-down.

The Time: Saturday, May 20, 6 pm
The Place:  Tribeca Performing Arts Center/BMCC (Theatre 2)
199 Chambers Street, New York, NY
Directions: Take trains 1, 2, or 3 to the Chambers Street stop

John McCain - Unwanted Guest

Nicholas Allanach | Commencement ceremonies tend to be boring and only worth their tedium when finally over. Fortunately, for The New School’s class of 2006, this year’s commencement is one charged with controversy and ripe with protest potential –how exciting. Admittedly, inviting conservative Senator John McCain to be keynote speaker and recipient of an honorary degree from this “liberal institution” has had much in provoking the peaked interest.
