textThe Great Reboot and Investing in Death by Gustav Viktor Smigielski and Heinrich Frei
The World Economic Forum (WEF) continues to propagate a highly hierarchized society in which the most powerful actors decide how society should develop - far removed from democratic processes.

textAbortion is not only about women its a human, civil, environmental rights issue says EOPA by Ramona du Houx
EOPA, an organization of thousands of elected officials, is appalled by the leaked Supreme Court abortion decision and warns of civil liberty erosion. Black and Brown communities will suffer the most. They do now, from fossil fuel production and factories that spew toxins, which have been strategically located in their communities because they were redlined decades ago. Environmental justice will become a utopian dream if we start eroding women’s rights, as all American rights will become end...

by Dave Id
In a stunning breach of US Supreme Court secrecy, a draft majority opinion written by justice Samuel Alito has been leaked. The would-be ruling is outrageous, sneering at the concept of a constitutional right to privacy and bodily autonomy. Alito makes a case for completely overturning Roe v Wade (1973) and Planned Parenthood v Casey (1992), allowing states to outlaw all abortions without exceptions for rape and incest. Half of the country will lose access to safe and legal reproductive se...
