George Orwell

US Journalism's New "Golden Age"?

The mainstream U.S. media is congratulating itself on its courageous defiance of President Trump and its hard-hitting condemnations of Russia, but the press seems to have forgotten that its proper role within the U.S. democratic structure is not to slant stories one way or another but to provide objective information for the American people.

The American Dystopia Didn't Begin With Trump

"Ultimately, the dystopia of this media narrative has little to do with the world most of us live in - we can hardly recognize it. We do have real problems, however, and it would be helpful if politicians paid attention to them instead of chasing shadows in Washington."

George Orwell's Monetary Policy

"Tightening is easing..." Monetary policy is a black box and former Fed chair, Alan Greenspan, acknowledged this more than 20 years ago...

Paul Craig Roberts Rages "Are You Ready To Die?"

"We currently are in the most dangerous situation of my lifetime...In George Orwell’s 1949 dystopian novel, 1984, information that no longer is consistent with Big Brother’s explanations is chucked down the Memory Hole.

Emmanuel Clinton & The Revolt Of The Elites

War And Empire: The American Way Of Life

What the majority of Americans are conditioned to think they know about their past (and that of many other peoples) is myth, and too often, sheer illusion. Misdirection and manipulation about proclaimed threats from abroad since 1945 has led directly into wars and unjust armed interventions and coups in many other nations. The results are always tragic on a colossal scale.

Doug Casey On The End Of Western Civilization

"Many of the words you hear, especially from the media, are confused, conflated, or completely misused; and this is corrupting the language. As George Orwell liked to point out, to control language is to control thought. The corruption of language is adding to the corruption of civilization itself. This is not a trivial factor in the degradation of Western Civilization."

Big Brother Is Still Watching You: Don't Fall For The NSA's Latest Ploy

Supposedly the NSA is going to stop collecting certain internet communications that merely mention a foreign intelligence target. Privacy advocates are hailing it as a major victory for Americans whose communications have been caught in the NSA’s dragnet. If this is a victory, it’s a hollow victory. Here’s why...

Michael Hudson: Trump Is Obama's Legacy - Is This The End Of The Democratic Party?

"...the Democrats will continue to pose as the Lesser Evil party not really in terms of policy, but simply ad hominum. They will merely repeat Hillary’s campaign stance: They are not Trump... having lost its ability to pose as the party of labor and the middle class; and firmly controlled by Wall Street and California billionaires, the DNC strategy of identity politics encourages any identity except that of wage earners..."

From Nuisance To Threat: The High Cost Of Truth

"I am convinced that the US, and probably the entire Western world, that is, the American Empire, has entered an era in which respect for truth does not exist in public and private institutions."
