Let’s raise our european OXI !
by : Blockupy International
Monday August 3, 2015
From Athens to Brussels and Berlin our NO is everywhere in the squares. 3 / 8 / 2015 On July 13 the political and financial oligarchies of Europe imposed, with the knife at the throat, a program to Greece that the same mainstream economists call simply "impossible to enforce" even under capitalistic standards. Which was their real goal? They wanted to and had to demonstrate that there can be no viable alternative outside of the field of possibilities defined by their policies. To reach (...)

UPDATE: Get somebody with a history, not an opportunist
by : Timbre Wolf
Wednesday July 29, 2015
Update: Being president doesn’t make you black. Update: Being “hip-hop” doesn’t make you concerned about social justice . . . or a musician for that matter. Update: Being a Democrat doesn’t make you a liberal . . . a neo liberal maybe. So I hate hip-hop. Why? Stealing beats, using two turntables and a microphone no more makes one an artist than, say, painting houses. Using meaningless buzz words like Turntablism, Freestyle rap, Gangsta rap, Homo hop, (...)

Whereas « democratic » with the Kurds, it would seem that he is definitively incapable of it… It will have needed that one year to the leader of the AKP to go out of its reserve and take advantage of the international conflict imposed by daesh in Iraq and in Syria to send an additional ultimatum to those whom he always considers as his internal enemy bound (connected) to a politics (policy) of Marxist economic and social (...)

Luanda Poised to Take Its Place on the World Stage
Monday July 27, 2015
The capital of Angola, Luanda remains a city of contrasts. Skyscrapers are growing upward and replacing the grasslands on which the city was founded. Wealth is concentrated near the center of the city, while the outskirts are home to the middle class and poor. However, there is a new class of young, upwardly mobile businesspeople emerging hoping to forge that fractured image into something greater and propel Luanda to its rightful place on the world stage. One of these trendsetters is (...)

Grexit, first Act
by : Raffaele Sciortino
Friday July 24, 2015
It was easy to expect that they would have made the Greeks pay for OXI, and so was it. In the light of the most harsh outcome of the "negotiation" between the Greek government and the Eurogroup, the discussion now revolves around pro- and anti-Tsipras stances - has he betrayed the people’s mandate or not? - and/or the question of whether the price to save Europe was maybe too hefty. A discussion, to say the least, that is out of sync. Actually, this "agreement" does not avoid the (...)

Europe’s Impossible Dream
by : Paul Krugman
Tuesday July 21, 2015
There’s a bit of a lull in the news from Europe, but the underlying situation is as terrible as ever. Greece is experiencing a slump worse than the Great Depression, and nothing happening now offers hope of recovery. Spain has been hailed as a success story, because its economy is finally growing — but it still has 22 percent unemployment. And there is an arc of stagnation across the continent’s top: Finland is experiencing a depression comparable to that in southern (...)

"The Streets Of Athens Will Fill With Tanks"

07/19/2015 Over the course of six painful months, round after round of fraught negotiations between Greece and its creditors produced all manner of speculation about what a "Grexit" would actually entail. With no precedent to turn to for guidance, mapping out the implications of an exit from the currency bloc was (and still is) a virtually impossible task, but the collective efforts of the sellside, the mainstream media, political analysts, and economists did manage to produce a veritable (...)

Who is Flavio Becca? The bricklayer who is about to crash
Monday July 20, 2015
Flavio Becca is clearly an ambitious man. The Italian-born bricklayer-turned-entrepreneur who lives in Luxembourg, built his property and sports empire out of nothing. But, as every child knows from the story of Icarus, fly too close to the sun and your wax-glued wings dissolve. Becca has been attracted by the sun, too many times to survive the damage. His empire is about to crash, because it was based on nothing more than sweet-talk. Politicians and even a state bank are among the victims (...)

Besides the specific interpretations, "in Athens" or "on Athens" a deepening of tensions and decomposition of power forms is underway - the latter, for a long time now, not able anymore to propose stable governance relationships within the European province; and materializing, once again, the specter of a Political that increasingly gets polarized in its "extreme" conditions of friendship and hostility.

It is hard to believe that a country so beleaguered by political unrest and separatist war should be a member of the allegedly civilised European Union. But Ukraine today finds itself stuck in the middle between Europe’s self-serving indifference and Russia’s territorial ambitions – and a new generation of oligarchs, lawyers and public servants are taking over the sorry tradition of corruption in the former Eastern Bloc state.  Take the case of Leonid Sedov.

It came as little surprise this week to see anti-government website Maka Angola launch a vitriolic attack of the change of laws regarding non-governmental organisations (NGOs) in Angola. According to the website, which is run by investigative journalist and staunch anti-government activist Rafael Marques de Morais, many of the changes involve the administration and registration of NGOs in the oil-rich country. The website states that the reforms in question oblige(s) NGOs to register with (...)

After the likes of Teodorin Obiang and Denis Christel Sassou Nguesso, most people here in Africa don’t want to read another piece about a politician’s kid. However, Mirco de Jesus Martins, stepson of Vice President Manuel Vicente is a different type of person altogether. Though Mirco de Jesus Martins was born here in Angola before his father adopted him, he was educated in Angola and abroad in both UK and US universities.

Oxi Means NO... or at least it should
by : Daniel Patrick Welch
Sunday July 5, 2015
At this writing, with over 75% of the vote counted in today’s Greek referendum, OXI is actually still ticking *up* with 61.6 to 31.4. It is a stunning vote, well ahead of Syriza support in all districts. It is certainly an enormous ’fuck you’ to the troika, and an important assertion of democracy and national sovereignty—as well as a robust shot in the arm for the anti-austerity movement across Europe. It also now seems possible that the greek people have moved ahead (...)

Greece - The Time of Refusal

Thursday July 2, 2015
Right from the start of our national debate over the Greek situation we have been criticizing a two-fold ideological attitude: on one hand that of those uncritically recognizing the "good morning" in Syriza, hoping to export to Italy the successful electoral remedy; on the other hand that of those who, equally uncritically, withdrew into sectarian positions, accusing Tsipras’ party to have dried up the struggleas and hoping in its failure. Against the former ones, we think that the (...)

Young Entrepreneurs Doing Sustainable Business in Angola

There are many young people who are leading this charge. Some of the notable young businessmen include Ivan (...)

Taxation Without Representation—Déjà vu

The Supreme Court’s acceptance of a case about the allocation of voting districts will have consequences far beyond the millions of U.S. taxpayers its ruling may deprive of representation. A decision that only counts voters, rather than all persons, will undermine the very foundation of the Republic. The American Revolution was fought over "taxation without representation," and those who wrote the Constitution carefully apportioned taxation and representation among the states (...)

At first glance, the results of America’s 2012 election appear to be a triumph for social, racial, and economic justice and progress in the United States: California voters passed a proposition requiring the rich to shoulder their fair share of the tax burden; Two states, Colorado and Washington, legalized the recreational use of marijuana, while Massachusetts approved the use of marijuana for medical purposes; Washington and two other states, Maine and Maryland, legalized same-sex (...)

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
Friday 28 September
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 (...)

HIGHER EDUCATION IN AMERICA: DREAM OR NIGHTMARE? PART III
Friday 28 September
by : David R. Hoffman, Legal Editor of Pravda.Ru
PART I PART II PART IV Disillusioned with the machinations of so-called “traditional” colleges, I became an adjunct instructor at several “for-profit” colleges. Thanks largely to the power and pervasiveness of the Internet, “for-profit” colleges (hereinafter for-profits) have become a growing phenomenon in America. They have also been the subject of much political debate and the focus of a Frontline special entitled College Inc. Unlike traditional (...)

HIGHER EDUCATION IN AMERICA: DREAM OR NIGHTMARE? PART II
Friday 28 September
by : David R. Hoffman, Legal Editor of Pravda.Ru
PART I PART III PART IV Several years ago, a young lady came into the college where I was teaching to inquire about a full-time instructor’s position in the sociology department. She was advised that only adjunct positions were available. Her response was, “No thanks. Once an adjunct, always an adjunct.” Her words still echo in my mind. Even as colleges and universities raise their tuition costs, they are relying more and more on adjunct instructors. Adjuncts are (...)

HIGHER EDUCATION IN AMERICA: DREAM OR NIGHTMARE? PART I
Friday 28 September
by : David R. Hoffman, Legal Editor of Pravda.Ru
PART II PART III PART IV When The Bill of Rights was added to the United States Constitution over two hundred years ago, Americans were blessed with many rights considered to be “fundamental.” One conspicuously missing, however, was the right to an education. This was not surprising given the tenor of the times. America was primarily an agrarian culture, and education, especially higher education, was viewed as a privilege reserved for the children of the rich and (...)

ONE SOLITARY LIFE, PART TWO
Monday 30 July

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 DEMOCRACY ENDURE?

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. In several previous articles for Pravda.Ru, I have consistently warned how the Supreme Court’s 2010 Citizens United decision is one of the (...)

DEMOCRACY IN THE HANDS OF IDIOTS, PART TWO

Imagine, if you will, that the United States government passes a law banning advertisers from sponsoring commercials on Rush Limbaugh’s radio show or Rupert Murdoch’s Fox (Faux) “News” Network. On one hand, there would be two decided advantages to this ban: The National IQ would undoubtedly increase several percentage points, and manipulative pseudo-journalists would no longer be able to appeal to the basest instincts in human nature for ratings and profit while (...)

DEMOCRACY IN THE HANDS OF IDIOTS

LIVE, from the State that brought you Senator Joseph McCarthy, Wisconsin voters now proudly present, fresh from his recall election victory, Governor Scott Walker! At first glance, it is almost unfathomable that anyone with a modicum of intelligence would have voted to retain Scott Walker as Wisconsin’s governor. This, after all, is a man who openly declared he is trying to destroy the rights of workers through a “divide and conquer” strategy; who received 61% of the (...)

PEOPLE WITHOUT SOULS

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 (...)
