UK and US as we stand now!

This week both sides of the Atlantic are, to use technical geopolitical jargon, even more of a hot mess than usual. Why? Theresa May stands accused of basically bribing the DUP with £1bn, sourced from the mythical magic money tree, …

has violence gone up or down in the world?

The only way you can really answer the question – has violence gone up or down? – is to count how many violent incidents have there been as a proportion of the number of opportunities, and has that gone up or down over the course of history? And in all cases, the long-term historical trend, though there are ups and downs and wiggles and spikes, is absolutely downward. The rate of violent crime in the western world has fallen by more than half in just a decade. The rate of death in war fell by a factor of 100 over a …

Eisenhower — Guns

Every Gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired, signify in the final sense a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed.

I once tried to count the ‘generations’ that have been proclaimed in the past ten years, since the well-known article about the so-called ‘Generation Nothing’; I believe there were as many as twelve.

Some Thoughts

So I’ve noticed a lot of people asking here and various other places what to do next.  Some feel unsure of what steps to take exactly in regards to the whole gamergate thing or if what they’ve been doing is even effective in the first place.  Some are worried it’s going to implode like OWS did while others feel like simply walking away entirely is the best strategy.  Add to this the bombardment of nonstop biased articles, a smug attitude of those on the other side, and nonstop censorship on major sites for discussion and it can all feel overwhelming. …
