  • BREXIT: So Be It! Now What? What’s Next?

    By Johan Galtung

    On the possible positive side is EU independence of the USA, not choosing US foreign-military (and university system!) policy instead of working out its own. …The vote turned out like the two referenda held in Norway in 1972 and 1994. And much for the same reason: Protestant break with Rome – Catholic, imperial – Henry VIII made himself head of the Anglican Church in 1534.

  • Con vs. Con: Hillary vs. Trump

    By Chris Hedges

    During the presidential election cycle, liberals display their gutlessness. Liberal organizations, such as MoveOn.org, become cloyingly subservient to the Democratic Party. Liberal media, epitomized by MSNBC, ruthlessly purge those who challenge the Democratic Party establishment.

The Brexit Vote: What Does It Mean?

The Brexit Vote: What Does It Mean?

By Paul Craig Roberts

What does it mean? Hopefully, a breakup of the EU and NATO and, thereby, the avoidance of World War III. The EU and NATO are evil institutions. These two institutions are mechanisms created by Washington in order to destroy the sovereignty of European peoples. These two institutions give Washington control over the Western world and […]
