textNew old financial crisis & China's peace plan by Klaus Wagener
Since Silicon Valley Bank, Silvergate Corporation, and Signature Bank all toppled within a week in the U.S., and now First Republic Bank has also run into trouble, there are increasing signs that the next big financial crisis, which was only postponed in 2019 by tons of freshly printed central bank money, could now erupt with force. $9 trillion has been injected into the "U.S. market" since 2019....

textWar poker and Imperial moralism by Benoit Breville and Serge Halimi
After the fall of the Soviet Union, the "war on terrorism" began, which, according to George W. Bush, would end "tyranny in the world." Korea, Vietnam, Afghanistan, Iraq - the U.S. democratic crusades not only cost several million lives, they also brought the restriction of freedoms, McCarthyism, the hunt for whistleblowers. And a series of alliances with dictators......

textThe sacred cow and The propaganda machine by Rainer Sonnberg & Byorn Blach
These campaigns by politics and the media, which prescribe an extremely narrow framework of what can be said, narrow freedom of expression to the Western narrative. Other opinions are not just open to being shot down. Those who dare to express them are grabbed by their livelihoods....

textDefensive Invasion & Strategies of Power by Gabriele Gysi & Roland Rottenfusser
Imagine it's war and no one goes! This dream is being hurled into the dustbin of history by NATO. War is socially acceptable again, new lifestyle. Many voices cry for revenge, cry for the most modern weapons, because there are new sneaky attack warriors with poisonous arrows. It all seems like a duplicate of the US founding story. The new savages, the new Indians are the Russians....

textUN Charter: Negotiations!, Good wars, bad wars? & Proxies by M von der Schulenberg and Sabine Schiffer
The seriousness of the escalating conflict over NATO's expansion to Russia's borders, which has now led to war, has been clear to all involved since at least 1994. Russia has repeatedly warned that admitting Ukraine and Georgia to NATO would violate its elementary security interests and cross a red line....

textChina's peace plan & It's about everything by Jurgen Huebschen & Bernhard Trautvetter
In times of crisis, right-wing populists, with the benevolent support of influential media, play the national card and pit disadvantaged groups of people against each other. Scapegoats, like Jews in the past and refugees today, are made responsible for the collapse of the welfare state and security....

textChina's 12-point Peace Proposal to end Ukraine war by DLi
This week, China released a 12-point Peace plan for ending the Ukraine war. It is the first comprehensive Peace proposal by a major power(there has been no Peace plan at all proposed by the G7 nor NATO, who are instead the major arms provider of over $100 Billion of lethal weapons to Ukraine--an amount more than the entire annual war budget of Russia!) Significantly, China's Peace Plan specifically calls for serious consideration of long-term security concerns on BOTH sides....

textTotal victory over a nuclear power is not possible without nuclear war by Fabian Lehr & Volker Mosler
Neither side in this war represents any forward-looking political idea. It is not a war for freedom and democracy, but an imperialist war over whether Ukraine will remain a semi-colony of the US and EU or become a semi-colony of Russia again. Even if Ukraine or NATO wins this war without turning Ukraine into a nuclear-contaminated desert, a victorious Ukrainian state would not be free...

textJanuary 30, 1933 and Media make politics by Hartwig Hohnsbein and Georg Rammer
Edward Bernays, one of the most important developers of modern propaganda, wrote almost a hundred years ago: "The manipulation of the opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate the unseen mechanisms of society form an invisible government, which is the true ruling power of our country."...

textA terribly powerful family by Tom-Oliver Regenauer
The unbelievable to outrageous story of the Bush clan not only illustrates the neo-feudalistic beliefs and networks we are dealing with in the ruling caste, it also proves that the power structures often referred to as the "Deep State" are real behind the façade of official government business and are mostly the actual political force in the country....

textNo nuclear war in Europe! and Glorification of violence by Oskar Lafontaine & Christian Zehenter
The well-read do not believe in Russia's sole guilt anyway. They remember the promise made to Gorbachev not to expand NATO eastward. They know that the U.S. organized and financed a coup on the Maidan in 2014 to install a puppet government that would push for Ukraine's eventual admission into NATO....

textStumbling into world war and Ukraine War by Sahra Wagenknecht & Christoph Habermann
We are on a slippery slope that could end in a world war and a nuclear apocalypse. And it is also clear that for going to war, the West would have to sacrifice those "values" that have so far been used to justify war, first and foremost freedom of speech and democracy. For such a step into the abyss could hardly be made palatable to the population, even with continued propaganda....

textThe coup from above and The Decline of Civilization by Ullrich Mies and Felix Feistel
Ignazio Silone (14), an important theorist of Italian fascism is reported to have said: "When fascism returns, it will not say: 'I am fascism' No, it will say: 'I am anti-fascism'." And I say: we are on the threshold of an internationalized super-fascism, which merely uses new, more perfidious and, above all, more complex methods than the traditional one. The traditional one was based on nationalist-racist-ethnic ideologemes and came to power through the terror of street and hall battle shoc...

textUncle Sam went ballistic over a balloon? by DLi
Last week, the volume of hot air spewed out by the Corporate media--magnifying even that from the Pentagon and State Dept.--was probably enough to fill 100X the size of the Chinese balloon! Notwithstanding the Chinese admission that it was a weather balloon blown off course, the US government response was nothing short of Cold War propaganda on steroids!...
