How Are We Going to Pay for Saving Trillions of Dollars?

How Are We Going to Pay for Saving Trillions of Dollars?

Enhanced Medicare for All — that wild scheme that Michael Bloomberg calls “untried” because it’s only been tested for decades in virtually every wealthy nation on earth — would cost $450 billion a year less than the current U.S. system. In the usual propaganda terms (in which you multiply by ten… »

Bloomberg Has Spent Enough to Give a Nickel to Every Person Whose Life He’s Ever Damaged

Bloomberg Has Spent Enough to Give a Nickel to Every Person Whose Life He’s Ever Damaged

A review of Michael Bloomberg’s political career should not be limited, I think, to the fact that he has the debating skills of a baked potato. Nor does it matter much that he focuses his sales pitch on being a great “manager” but clearly can’t manage to hire anyone to… »

Shut Down Canada Until it Solves its War, Oil, and Genocide Problem

Shut Down Canada Until it Solves its War, Oil, and Genocide Problem

Indigenous people in Canada are giving the world a demonstration of the power of nonviolent action. The justness of their cause — defending the land from those who would destroy it for short term profit and the elimination of a habitable climate on earth — combined with their courage and… »

Why This Election Is Different

Why This Election Is Different

Elections, I think most of us can agree, usually bring out the idiocy, superficiality, and illogic in everyone who can muster any. Imagine supporting, as many did, Sanders and then Trump because they were both “outsiders.” On Tuesday, I heard somebody on CNN announce that Sanders and Klobuchar were both… »

Even the Most Progressive U.S. Foreign Policy Blames Foreigners

Even the Most Progressive U.S. Foreign Policy Blames Foreigners

When it comes to foreign policy, it ought to go without saying that Trump, Biden, and Buttigieg are walking catastrophes. A bit of research suggests that Elizabeth Warren is pretty much a true believer in slightly modified catastrophe. But what about Bernie Sanders? I think that, as he is right now,… »

CNN: Sanders Is The Most Electable

CNN: Sanders Is The Most Electable

Remember CNN’s attack-debate last week? CNN did what it could to end Bernie Sanders’ campaign for president. Well, just after that, CNN conducted a poll to measure its success. According to its own report on its own poll, CNN failed miserably. Among “Democrats/Democratic-leaning independents who are registered to vote” the leading candidate… »

New York City Prepares Nuclear Option

New York City Prepares Nuclear Option

By David Swanson, World BEYOND War There really only is one option when it comes to nuclear weapons, and that is to do everything we can to abolish them before they abolish us. New York City Council will be voting on January 28, 2020, to do its part by voting… »

Why Is Trump the Only Candidate With a Budget Proposal?

Why Is Trump the Only Candidate With a Budget Proposal?

An important job of any U.S. president is to propose an annual budget to Congress. Shouldn’t it be a basic job of every presidential candidate to propose one to the public? Isn’t a budget a critical moral and political document outlining what chunk of our public treasury should go to… »

Six Reasons Elizabeth Warren Should Volunteer to Be Bernie Sanders’ Running Mate

Six Reasons Elizabeth Warren Should Volunteer to Be Bernie Sanders’ Running Mate

Why in the world should Elizabeth Warren choose to run for vice president? The obvious answer that can save you the time of reading further or, you know, thinking, is my blatant sexism. Clearly, every time I’ve supported female candidates in the past for City Council, House of Delegates, Congress,… »

If You’re Not Busy Plotting Nonviolent Revolution for Peace and Climate, You’re Busy Dying

If You’re Not Busy Plotting Nonviolent Revolution for Peace and Climate, You’re Busy Dying

Roger Hallam is of course right in his short book, Common Sense for the 21st Century: Only Nonviolent Rebellion Can Now Stop Climate Breakdown and Social Collapse. While some portion of humanity heaps scorn on the victims of the fossil fuel propaganda who deny climate science, only a much smaller portion… »
