Jurgen Habermas | The privatization mania has ended. What worries me most is the outrageous social injustice. The socialized costs of system breakdown hit the most vulnerable groups the hardest. Politics is necessary for the public interest, not the market. The collapse of the Soviet Union produced a fatal triumphalism.

Frank Gifford | There is an amazing momentum of exploitation by the United States. Peak Oil, Resource Depletion, Climate Change, and Over Population. These problems really are imminently solvable, but only if we are able to perceive them as problems.

Mike Flugennock | Rahm Emmanuel? Tom Daschle? Eric Holder? Hillary, f'crissakes? Just in case you're still wondering – you're certainly not the only one marveling at the number and quickness of old Clinton mobsters and liberal interventionists crawling out from under their rocks to score cushy gigs with the Change Administration. No goddamn' wonder President-Elect Change practically fell over his wingtips trying to disavow himself from the Donkeycratic Leadership Council when they were giving him big ups way back at the dawn of the last Presidential "Election" campaign... more... 2 Comments

Ahmar Mustikhan | Even before the new U.S. adminstration has taken charge of office there is widespread joy among the forgotten and stateless peoples of the world, like the Kurds and Baluchs in the Middle East, who were denied statehood by the British that their fate may change soon, thanks to the strong advocacy of balkanization by U.S. Vice President-elect Joe Biden.
