In recent years, the term "fascism" is heard more and more. With the growing epidemic of police killings, mostly of people of color, with the intentional maintenance and growth of the largest prison system in the world (with practically a political guarantee of recidivism), with police making lethal demands for obedience, with the increasing corporate technological destruction of land and oceans, and with the constant obsessions with war (a misnomer for massacre from a distance), the term "fa...

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. However, the Saudi Kingdom's own practice of beheading has led to bad press for the coalition.
