Outrageous Imprisonment

OUTRAGEOUS IMPRISONMENT: Two Britons — Simon Sheppard, a writer and behavioral scientist, and Stephen Whittle, a freelance writer and satirist — languished a year in American jails though they committed no crimes whatever under American law. They fled to the U.S. seeking asylum because they fell afoul of tyrannical anti-free-speech laws in Britain and […]

Those who tell them that their attachments should be global and that their lands and neighborhoods belong to the whole world are sick and evil." - Srdja Trifkovic

More War Rumblings

MORE WAR RUMBLINGS: It seems that the oligarchs of the so-called “West” (actually, Russia seems to stand for traditional Western values more than America or the EU does these days) not only want to conquer Iran, but to surround and intimidate Russia as well. According to South Ossetian political scientist Irina Kadzhaev, “Georgia’s war […]

Alternative Currency: Now a Crime?

A montage of Liberty Dollars, which may have been the most successful of all U.S. alternative currencies to date. Despite repeated Treasury assurances that their efforts were perfectly legal, the creators of this truly honest metal-backed money found themselves under arrest.

"Precisely where we decide to draw the species or subspecies boundaries is less important than deciding to continue the process of our divergence and ultimate speciation." - Kevin Alfred Strom

The Four Freedoms?

THE FOUR FREEDOMS?: Corruption rules modern America. It is a truism, mentioned by Mike Gravel among many others, that both parties and their candidates take in considerable sums of money from hedge funds, oil companies, lawyers’ associations, and numerous multinational corporations — to say nothing of the Israel Lobby. But it’s nothing new.

"As democracy is perfected, the office represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. We move toward a lofty ideal. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last, and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron." - Mencken

"When men really begin to build churches that look like cargo terminals, there will be no religion any more, just Rotary. And when they begin to live in houses as coldly structural as step-ladders they will cease to be men, and become mere rats in cages." - Mencken
