Wars require creative marketing - by Ted Rudow III, MA
The so-called “war on terror", the U.S. never does very well at listening to others! It usually just goes ahead and does what it wants to anyway, no matter what anyone says, as it’s doing in the Mideast right now. They didn’t root out terrorism, either.

The Human Rights Record of the United States in 2013 - by repost
Like Nazi Germany, Nazi USA proclaims itself to be the bastion of freedom, democracy and opportunity, when it never was, and so long as capitalism exists, never can be. The United States is far more a police state on a per capita basis than China, yet China is vilified as being worse, obviously because as always imperialism wants to take over China, and the rest of the world.

Patterns of Oppression - by Walter Bond
Whenever we the human race set about oppressing another group from within or from outside our own species the justifications we use are not only similar in design but often times exact verbatim.

In America, we've been trying to puzzle that out for four decades, wit...

Zoos' dirty little secret - by Jennifer O'Connor
The public killing of the 18-month-old giraffe Marius at the Copenhagen Zoo should be a wake-up call: Zoos are businesses whose "merchandise" is living, feeling animals, and unwanted animals are routinely unloaded in unsavory ways.
