No to Racism and War! - by Attac and Marx21
We must give good and equal chances to youth for education and training instead of hate campaigns and general suspicion. The left must urge welcoming refugees and opening borders instead of allowing people to drown in the Mediterranean. The Islamic State would not exist without the western wars in Afghanistan, Iraq and now in Syria. The "war on terror" has taken the lives of more than a million persons and destroyed whole societies. Whoever wants to fight IS must battle against the imperi...

Natural Health And The Panacea Of Red Palm Oil - by Tomas DiFiore
Deforestation: Consume In Moderation - While the continued yearly burning of Indonesian forests and peatlands for palm plantations creates regional health hazards, new advertizing claims of red palm oil promote the health benefits to niche markets for optimum health and energy bars. And while global transnationals commit to futuristic Zero-deforestation pledges, there is also a trend of corporate restructuring and large global land grabs to increase the plantation base. Don't be confused, red...

Economic Crises as Sicknesses and Catastrophes - by S Puehringer, M Schnetzer and P Schreiner
The 2008 financial crisis is often wrongly described as a "state debt crisis" where cause and effect are inverted and economists and the market are released from responsibility. The Austrian economist Stephan Puehringer shows how sickness and catastrophe metaphors dominate discussion. The "patient Germany" has a "serious infection" or the German economy has been "infected." The "American crisis" is described as an "economic Tsunami." How perverse that the social state is dismantled and work...

Capitalism is the Problem - by Ferdinand Scholz and Matthias Kiefer
Prosperity in large part is based on the ecological and social exploitation of poor countries in Africa and Asia. Today 20% of humanity consume 80% of global resources. For several billions people, hunger, sickness, exploitation and low wages are the daily routine while a tiny upper class swims in unfathomable abundance. The poor are played off against each other while the richest hide billions in tax havens. Counter-measures are necessary for a world moving to justice, inclusion and human...

Reviews: Submission as Freedom. Life in Neoliberalism - by R Beyss, S Friedrich and W Gaum

No coop and no dictatorship were needed to gain mass support for the political ideological hegemony. A neoliberal morality was implemented connected with market conformity, adjustment readiness, self-discipline and active, competitive, entrepreneurial and egoistic life praxis. Stagnation, unemployment and futurelessness demand counter-measures. Is the market self-healing? What...
