Becoming Our Fear

Jessica Arey Hall | Todays political prisoners of the 'war on terror' should be protected under the Bill of Rights as well as the Geneva Convention.

The Troops Don't Support the Constitution

daver | Every U.S. soldier takes an express and solemn oath to "support and defend the Constitution." That oath, however, is a sham because the troops do not support or defend the Constitution. Instead, when it comes to war the troops follow another oath they take - to obey the orders of the president, and they do this without regard to whether such orders violate the Constitution.

E. San Juan's New Book on Class Struggle in the Global Cultural Front

by Jeffrey A. Cabusao | Filipino critic E. SAN JUAN's new book of essays, WORKING THROUGH THE CONTRADICTIONS (Bucknell University Press), engages with, among other topics, the problem of cultural revolution in the Philippines and the plight of Overseas Filipino Workers--part of the 10-million-strong Filipino diaspora around the world.

Justice is not blind

Al Olson/People's Weekly World | Supreme Court Justice Hugo Black remarked in a famous decision, Griffin v. Illinois (1956), “There can be no equal justice where the kind of trial a man gets depends on the amount of money he has.” Black’s statement can be viewed as a central argument in two uniquely different books on the American criminal justice system: “No Equal Justice,” by David Cole, law professor at George Washington University and a legal analyst for The Nation magazine, and “Courtroom 302,” by Steve Bogira, longtime writer and staff member of The Reader, a Chicago newsweekly. Cole offers an overview of the system, and Bogira relates the daily happenings in an urban criminal courtroom. more...  0 Comments
