Obdurate

A word can have strong meanings associated with it, and depending on its use, can be interpreted from different perspectives. Recently I heard a citation from Michael Ignatieff, Canada’s contribution to faux liberal thought, in which he used the word “obdurate”. Intrigued – yes, I more or less knew what it meant, stubborn or hard, but for some reason I[Read More…]

Imperialism is Alive and Kicking, Resistance Needs More Unity

Imperialism is Alive and Kicking, Resistance Needs More Unity

When Bhagat Singh and his colleague gave the slogan of ‘ Death to Imperialism’ , they were of course  more immediately concerned with British rule in India, but in addition,  of course, they were very  aware of the need for wider and even longer duration struggle against imperialism. In fact soon after the rapidly growing freedom struggles of several countries[Read More…]

 What Planet Is NATO Living On?

Written by Medea Benjamin and Nicolas J. S.

 The ‘humanitarian’ left still ignores the lessons of Iraq, Libya and Syria to cheer on more war

 The ‘humanitarian’ left still ignores the lessons of Iraq, Libya and Syria to cheer on more war

The instinct among parts of the left to cheerlead the right’s war crimes, so long as they are dressed up as liberal “humanitarianism”, is alive and kicking, as Owen Jones revealed in a column last week on the plight of the Uighurs at China’s hands. The “humanitarian war” instinct persists even after two decades of the horror shows that followed[Read More…]

Now West Should Sit On Its Backside, Shut Up, And Listen To “The Others”!

Now West Should Sit On Its Backside, Shut Up, And Listen To “The Others”!

We were always told what to think; what is correct and what is wrong. By the white dudes living in or coming from Europe and North America. They knew everything. They were the most qualified. When I write “white,” I don’t mean just their race or color of their skin. To me, “white” is their culture, where they belong. Yes,[Read More…]

Exploiting Terrorism For Economic Gains

Exploiting Terrorism For Economic Gains

In order to understand the hype surrounding the phenomena of Islamic radicalism and terrorism, we need to understand the prevailing global economic order and its prognosis. What the pragmatic economists forecasted about the free market capitalism has turned out to be true; whether we like it or not. A kind of global economic entropy has set into motion. The money[Read More…]

Unreliability, Spinelessness Of The Western ‘Left’

Unreliability, Spinelessness Of The Western ‘Left’

It is tough to fight any real war. And it takes true guts, discipline and determination to win it. For years and decades, the so-called ‘left’ in the West has been moderately critical of North American (and sometimes even of European) imperialism and neo-colonialism. But whenever some individual or country rose up and began openly challenging the Empire, most of[Read More…]
