Fight To End The Most Base Form Of Exploitation
By : Brian McAfee - Wednesday August 3, 2011
One of the most significant ongoing scourges that befalls humanity worldwide is the ongoing exploitation and sexual abuse of over two million girls and boys through sex trafficking. UNICEF estimates that two and a half million children, most of them girls, are tricked or forced into the multibillion dollar global sex industry. The struggle to save, protect and defend the safety and well-being of children at risk for this type of travesty is and will remain an ongoing, sometimes uphill (...)

Raising Baby Bubba
By : David Glenn Cox - Saturday August 8, 2009
By David Glenn Cox There is a video making the rounds on the Internet of a woman dragging her child on a leash through a Verizon store. There was scads of outrage and the mother was charged with a felony. Well, Dr. Obvious says that child abuse emanates from poor parenting skills. When my wife was pregnant with our first child, another couple dropped by to congratulate us. As we chatted the husband said, “Enjoy those house plants while you can!” “Why is that?" I asked. (...)

By Ian McDougall in New Delhi Child workers, some as young as 10, have been found working in a textile factory in conditions close to slavery to produce clothes that appear destined for Gap Kids, one of the most successful arms of the high street giant. Speaking to The Observer, the children described long hours of unwaged work, as well as threats and beatings. Gap said it was unaware that clothing intended for the Christmas market had been improperly subcontracted to a sweatshop using (...)

Overgrown Kids, Unshackled Ids, and the Death of the Superego
By : Jason Miller - Tuesday July 10, 2007
by Jason Miller "Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them." Sigmund Freud Frightening as it may be, the Earth’s fate rests in the hands of children. With incredibly formidable military firepower at its disposal, the United States could catalyze Armageddon at any time. And while they may be adults chronologically, our sociopolitical structure is dominated by emotional infants. Nietzsche once pronounced God dead. In the (...)

No democracy is seen in the Congo as children are being used as sex slaves By Mary MacElveen November 18, 2006 In reading the main stream American press accounts of the Congo elections in which the loser filed a challenge to the outcome, it was as if I were having a flash back to the 2000 presidential elections in the United States.

Increasingly, we’re hearing about autism. There are walks and ribbons to create awareness for autism. Parents support groups have formed all over the country. Schools have had to focus on the needs of the growing number of students with a diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder. This debilitating, neurological (...)

Corrupt Congress: Virtually all of the $40 Billion in spending cuts affect the Poor and Young
By : USA Today - Saturday January 28, 2006
A new year brings new hope. And in this year it would be nice to see in Washington a new commitment to fiscal restraint and a resolve to bequeath a solvent government and robust economy to future generations. To listen to many Republican lawmakers, a move in that direction is underway. In the final hours before it wrapped up on Dec. 21, the Senate approved a five-year, $40 billion deficit reduction package. The measure, set to pass the House of Representatives early this year, would cut (...)

A Canadian Haven For Black U.S. Babies Jane Armstrong October 01, 2005 The United States is exporting newborns by the hundreds and Canada is a preferred destination. Most of the infants are African American or biracial; their birth mothers want them to be raised outside the United States and believe Canada is a land of little racial strife.

So they are cocooning themselves in suburbia and retreating into fantasy. And now you know why Desperate Housewives has taken our land by storm. When this column wondered last week why Channel Seven’s Monday night dramedy was more popular here than anywhere else in the world, we didn’t realise the answer was in the annual Ipsos (...)

Let us ignore our plasma televisions, our DVDs, our two-story cookie cutter homes and gas-guzzling SUVs. Let us promise to not open our overstocked pantries and refrigerators, or to go out and eat at one of many corporate controlled franchise restaurants offering vast assortments of gargantuan meals. (...)

The far-right in Ukraine are acting as the vanguard of a protest movement that is being reported as pro-democracy. The situation on the ground is not as simple as pro-EU and trade versus pro-Putin and Russian hegemony in the region. When US Senator John McCain dined with Ukraine’s opposition leaders in December, he shared a table and later a stage with the leader of the extreme far-right Svoboda party Oleh Tyahnybok.

I’VE DECIDED TO "WASTE" MY VOTE
Sunday 28 October
by : David R. Hoffman, Legal Editor of Pravda.Ru
In a 2004 episode of Comedy Central’s animated series South Park, an election was held to determine whether the new mascot for the town’s elementary school would be a “giant douche” or a “turd sandwich.” Confronted with these two equally unpalatable choices, one child, Stan Marsh, refused to vote at all, which resulted in his ostracization and subsequent banishment from the town. Although this satirical vulgarity was intended as a commentary on the two (...)

HIGHER EDUCATION IN AMERICA: DREAM OR NIGHTMARE? PART IV

by : David R. Hoffman, Legal Editor of Pravda.Ru
PART I PART II PART III If there is one major inconsistency in life, it is that young people who know little more than family, friends and school are suddenly, at the age of eighteen, supposed to decide what they want to do for the rest of their lives. Unfortunately, because of their limited life experiences, the illusions they have about certain occupations do not always comport to the realities. I discovered this the first time I went to college. About a year into my studies, I (...)

If there is one universal question that haunts all human beings at some point in their lives, it is, “Why do we die?” Death, after all, is the great illogic. It ultimately claims all, the rich and the poor, the mighty and the small, the good and the evil. Death also has the capability to make most human pursuits—such as the quest for wealth, fame and power—vacuous and fleeting. Given this reality, I have often wondered why so many people are still willing to (...)

How much corruption can a “democracy” endure before it ceases to be a democracy? If five venal, mendacious, duplicitous, amoral, biased and (dare I say it) satanic Supreme Court “justices”—John Roberts, Samuel Alito, Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Anthony Kennedy—have their way, America will soon find out.

A question I’ve frequently been asked since I began writing for Pravda.Ru in 2003 is, “Why did you become disillusioned with the practice of law?” This question is understandable, particularly since, in most people’s minds, being an attorney is synonymous with wealth and political power. I’ve always been reluctant to answer this question for fear it will discourage conscientious and ethical people from pursuing careers in the legal profession—a (...)
