How and Why the State Destroys Society / Politics / Social Issues

By: Frank_Chodorov

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt is not incumbent on a diagnostician to prescribe a remedy, and it would be quackery for him to do so when he has misgivings as to its curative value. It may be that the struggle between Society and the State is inevitable; it may be in the nature of things for the struggle to continue until mutual destruction clears the ground for the emergence of a new Society, to which a new political establishment attaches itself to effect a new doom.

Who's Behind the Budget Deficit Crisis / Politics / Global Debt Crisis

By: Shamus_Cooke

From the U.S. to Europe media and politicians are singing the same tune: "budget deficits must be drastically reduced -- by cutting social programs -- so that global bond investors do not threaten the economy."

What If NATO Is Defeated In Afghanistan? / Politics / Afghanistan

By: Submissions

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEric S. Margolis writes: Amazing as it sounds, NATO, the world’s most powerful military alliance, may be losing the only war the 61-year old pact every fought. All its soldiers, heavy bombers, tanks, helicopter gunships, armies of mercenaries, and electronic gear are being beaten by a bunch of lightly-armed Afghan farmers and mountain tribesmen.

Russia Flexes Its Muscles, War for Caspian Sea Inevitable? / Politics / GeoPolitics

By: Pravda

The countries of the Caspian region are trying to find a solution to a long-standing dispute about the Caspian Sea. There is something to argue about indeed: sturgeons, crude and natural gas deposits, as well as the transportation of oil and gas. The leaders of Russia, Iran, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan and Turkmenistan gathered in Baku (the capital of Azerbaijan) to discuss the problem in detail.

Bernanke's Crybaby Blabber Speech at ECB Conference / Politics / Central Banks

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSay what you will about Alan Greenspan, he was never a whiner. Unfortunately, the same can't be said about present Fed chairman Ben Bernanke. Bernanke's speech on Friday at a conference for the European Central Bank (ECB) was so full of crybaby blabber that attendees must have thought they'd ducked into a Frankfort daycare center by mistake. What an embarrassment! For nearly an hour, Bernanke went on and on about how mean China is and how they manipulate their currency to gain competitive advantage. It was surreal; like listening to a serial arsonist complain about his wife smoking in bed.

Capitalism Destroys Ireland's Workers Republic / Politics / Euro-Zone

By: Submissions

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJames Connolly, the Irish socialist and trade union leader shot by the British in May 1916 for his part in the Easter Rising, was convinced, early in the last century, that capitalism simply could not develop fully in Ireland.

From that assessment he argued that only a Workers’ Republic could really free Ireland from foreign domination. In any case, he didn’t want capitalism to develop — didn’t want the Irish bourgeoisie to climb on the backs of the working people of Ireland.

Perhaps Bernanke And Geithner Should Try Acting? / Politics / Central Banks

By: Richard_J_Greene

When Ronald Reagan became President of the United States some people were surprised that an actor could reach such a high level of government service. Do you think maybe it could work in reverse and that these two in government "service", Ben Bernanke and Timothy Geithner, could make it in the acting business? They certainly have had some on the job training and I guess you could say their ongoing screen tests have passed with flying colors.

From One Corrupt Congressman to Another / Politics / US Politics

By: Ashvin_Pandurangi

"A chain is no stronger than its weakest link, and life is after all a chain." -William James

The House Ethics Committee has just voted to confirm there is "clear and convincing" evidence that Charlie Rangel (D-NY) has violated at least eleven different Congressional ethics rules. His violations include failing to pay taxes on his property in the Dominican Republic, illegally transforming a rent-controlled residential apartment into a campaign office and using his status as head of the Ways and Means Committee to secure funds for his public policy center.

Europe’s Dirty Secret, Financial Elite Looting Public Treasuries / Politics / Credit Crisis 2010

By: Barry_Grey

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn a revealing admission concerning the relationship between capitalist governments and international financial interests, the Financial Times on Tuesday wrote of “Europe’s dirty secret.”

The newspaper editorialized against the plan of the European Union, the European Central Bank (ECB) and the International Monetary Fund to loan Ireland tens of billions of euros in order to guarantee in full the investments of international bankers and bondholders in the country’s failing banking system.

America Surrenders, The Collective Will is Broken / Politics / US Politics

By: Barry_M_Ferguson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI always wondered what it would feel like. A collective will is broken. A great people are humbled. Concessions are made. The symbolic white flag is raised. Surrender is offered. Control is conceded. Power is transferred. A new era begins. ‘America’  surrenders. It is not a good feeling.

Even mild to moderate deviations in either price or supply will crush our economy and make the logistics of daily life impossible. – Jim Kunstler - The Long Emergency

Don't Fly Until the TSA is Abolished / Politics / US Politics

By: Lewrockwell

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBecky Akers writes: Wow, but the fur – and clothing, and screeners’ hands – are flying at airports, aren’t they? Yee haw! Christmas came early this year for those of us who hate the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), who have prayed for nine long years that the good Lord would smite it from the face of the earth, who can’t wait to take to the skies again once LaWanda and her porno-scanners roast in Hell.
