The Rebalancing of Powers: From ‘Brexit’ to Babel?

There is a disconnect between national policy and international relations. The decision to leave the EU by the UK, or “Brexit”, is a symbol of that disconnect. But in order to understand the origins of this decision, it is important to highlight the UK’s tradition of reluctance and hesitation towards the EU since its inception.Continue reading “The Rebalancing of Powers: From ‘Brexit’ to Babel?”

Evaluating the ‘Party of God’: Hezbollah, Conflict & Justice

To determine Hezbollahโ€™s overall success, the rather limited literature on the subject focuses on the organizations political achievements as well as their military achievements in the region (Norton 2007). This is primarily because Hezbollah functions both as a political party in the Lebanese government, as well as an armed militia, a status that has notContinue reading “Evaluating the ‘Party of God’: Hezbollah, Conflict & Justice”

Libertarianism

In essence the rise of Libertarianism in America is nothing to be jovial about because it represents only one thing: the decline of an empire. Libertarianism is intended to be the solution to America’s governmental and business intrusions into daily life but in reality, the rise of libertarianism is only the signal of the failureContinue reading “Libertarianism”

REPUBLICan’t

The term Republican means to believe that certain individuals are more fit to govern society than others, which is why you often hear right-wingers give you the WE ARE NOT A DEMOCRACY WE ARE A REPUBLIC narrative. Enough said. Conservatives, religious and irreligious extremists, from communists to zionists, have nothing fruitful to rely on forContinue reading “REPUBLICan’t”

LE FASCISME

http://www.politicususa.com/2014/03/25/bush-sec-defense-donald-rumsfeld-compares-president-obama-trained-ape.html Mind-boggling the audacity these guys have. I am starting to believe that they are in fact the descendants of the Third Reich – as extreme as that might sound. Likening Obama to an ape is not racist according to the Right – but then again neither was the death of Trayvon Martin. It’s likeContinue reading “LE FASCISME”

On Putin’s address to the American people

I recently came across a conversation between some friends on facebook about Russian President Putin’s recent appeal to the American people in the NYT and couldn’t help but take an opinion. The guys in the conversation just seemed so uptight, so fearful of Putin, echoing stereotypical American and Western paranoias of foreign governments and nations.Continue reading “On Putin’s address to the American people”

Let me make something clear by stating that President Morsi’s hatred for Jews and Zionists is a sham. If anything, its this sort of religious fanaticism that Israel plays on. See America? See why we have control/secure the Middle East? Mr. Morsi, Bassem Youssef is free to do as he pleases…as is Jon Stewart, whoContinue reading
