    Tunisia: The Anatomy of Revolt

    Par | 1 recommandé
    The reign of Zine Al Abidin Ben Ali and its subsequent demise reflect two defining principles in human political behaviour. On the one hand, the average person values safety and security over freedom. On the other, injustice and dispossession create intolerable dissonance in the human psyche which the individual must address first by understanding its causes and the alternative approaches to its resolution, then by identifying and eliminating the specific barriers to change or reframing them into something else (see Don Edward Beck and Christopher Cowan, Spiral Dynamics, pp. 6-7).

    The Bemba trial at the International Criminal Court: ersatz justice?

    Par | 1 recommandé
    The scales of the atrocities committed in central Africa over the last two decades is unmatched by any other conflict since World War Two, if only in the number of deaths. The Democratic Republic of Congo in particular has seen millions of people being massacred, raped, maimed, dying of diseases in insalubrious refugees camps and losing everything that made them human beings. Congo is an ongoing genocide. The reasons to the never-ending violence, devastating in a country already striped to the bones, are numerous. From the conveniently illegal mineral trade to the political factions trying to get their share of power, there is not one solution to end it. But there is one demand that unite all Congolese people: Justice.

    Why Millions March in France, But Not in the US

    Par | 3 recommandés
    By Rick Wolff, University of Massachusetts in Amherst.The basic issue is the same there and here. Capitalism generates another of its regular, periodic crises, only this one is really bad. It begins, as often happens, in the financial sector where credit invites the competition-driven speculation, the excess risk-taking, and the corruption that explodes first.

    Christianity Or Europe

    Par | 1 commentaire
    This comment is from Alexander Goerlach, editor of German online magazine The European.«When Novalis chose these words as the title for his speech, the Old World was on the cusp of a new age. The discursive link to medieval Christianity was supposed to propel the European continent into the 19th century. The past was idealized to predict a glorious future. Now, the Right is trying the same everywhere in Europe. They are abusing the idea of a "Christian heritage".
