textEmancipation in Crisis by Tomasz Konicz
The contradictory capitalist mode of production is thus not only the driving force[11] behind the mounting debt and economic crises,[12] it is also the cause of the unfolding climate catastrophe. It goes without saying that “man-made” climate change is in large part the result of the social system – the way society is organized and reproduced – in which people are forced to live....

textIran-Saudi Peace a Diplomatic Coup by China by DLi
The just-announced Peace deal(or revived diplomatic relations) between Iran and Saudi Arabia is a game changer in the Middle East. Since WW II, the USA had touted itself as the most influential Peace broker in the region, but had only turned the region into a powder keg. Now, the world is seeing how a responsible outside power--in this case China--can gain the trust and respect of two of the bitterest enemies in the MidEast....

textInflation debate and The inflation conundrum by Yves Wegelin and Thomas Sablowski
If inflation is the result of a distributional conflict, it can also be deliberately stopped by governments. Governments could skim off the higher profits through a tax in order to subsidize energy costs for consumers. Governments could also raise taxes (on the rich, it should be added) as a way to curb economic demand and thus inflation....

The enrichment elites of the West in particular have been trying for decades to extend their influence to the whole world. That is their declared concept.

textCalifornia's record high gas prices have set the stage for showdown with oil companies and by Hank Greenberg
On November 19th, Californians paid $5.30 per gallon of gasoline, while Texans paid $3.02. Stopping this price gouging with a windfall profit cap has become a priority of the governor. If Gov. Newsom can pass a windfall profits cap, it will be viewed as a major victory over the California oil industry. California Governor Gavin Newsom’s official plan to combat these high prices was introduced by State Senator Nancy Skinner, on the day the legislature reconvened to swear in members, Decembe...

textBattle for Social Democracy and Unfettered Capitalism by Marc Saxer and Rainer Hank
Two opposing schools of thought face each other at the sickbed: neoliberalism and social democracy. But didn't the death-bells of neoliberalism ring in the course of the financial market crisis?

textUtopias and Dystopias as Places of Mental Retreat and Cooperation with China by Dieter Funke and Michael Klare
Joe Biden and his foreign policy team are in many ways still entrenched in the Cold War era, and his administration has generally taken a far more antagonistic stance toward China than Obama. It is not surprising, then, that the progress Kerry made with his Chinese interlocutors in Glasgow largely fizzled out as tensions over Taiwan grew more intense....

textThe Humor of Jesus and The cry of the poor by Marc Batko, W Meyer and K Chavent
After much meditation and reflection, I firmly believe that Jesus made fun of individualism and profit-oriented economic systems. Winning people to trust the infinite, invisible and transcendent God was surely his central goal. “Are not two sparrows sold for a penny?” he asked his calculating counterpart. “No sparrow falls to the ground without your Father’s consent. You are worth more...!...

textThe American century was yesterday by Roberto J De Lapuente and Oscar Lafontaine
"The people can always be made, with or without the right to vote, to follow the orders of the leaders. It is very simple. One need nothing to do but to tell the people that they are being attacked, and to reproach the pacifists of their lack of patriotism and claim that they are putting the country in danger. This method works in every country." (Hermann Goering said this when in prison in 1946)...

textThe psychology of warmongers and The war cannot be won by Klaus-Jurgen Bruder and Silvia Federici
We should strive quite fundamentally for a different Europe and a different Russia, namely each freed from capitalist, parasitic oligarchy. The Jaurès maxim, "Capitalism carries war like the cloud carries rain," is more relevant than ever. Only in another - post-capitalist, social-ecological - Europe, from the Atlantic to the Urals, can peace and justice become a reality....
