US ally Saudi Arabia beheads adulterers, apostates, and sorcerers within its own borders (audio/mpeg 1.9MB) - by KPFA Weekend News/Ann Garrison
The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is a prominent member of the coalition formed to bomb ISIL after the group released its beheading videos on the Worldwide Web.

The Need to Abolish the Prison System - by Steve Martinot
An argument for the abolition of the prison system based on political and ethical grounds rather than sociological. The sociological arguments are mainly that prisons don't work, that is, they don't do the job for which they were designed. That assumes a value for their purpose. The ethical argument says that the idea of prisons, and the ethical results, are themselves criminal, and render the society that uses them a criminal society.
