Why Honor Politicians?

Reuters: Turn to Government for Successful Societies?

Now UN Blames Lord's Resistance Army for Elephant Poaching
January 08, 2013

Zombie Nation

A Flu Pandemic Will Inevitably Kill You
January 07, 2013
This is a scary article that fits right in with our larger theory about power elite fear-based promotions. We call them dominant social themes and theorize with a good deal of corroborative evidence that these memes are intended to scare people into giving up p ...
Taxes versus Revenues: Leslie Stahl's Malpractice
January 07, 2013

Jettison the Constitution?
January 03, 2013
Our trends for 2013 featured the advance of German-style National Socialism in the US, and this probably qualifies along those lines. The Times article unapologetically makes the argument for doing away with the US Constitution but what is to be substituted and ...

Pimco's El-Erian: Divided US Government No Longer Good for Economy
January 02, 2013

Fiscal Cliff … Whatta Meme!
December 31, 2012

The Invisible Hand Strikes Back

NGOs Plot Wave of Criminal Referrals to Legitimize International Criminal Court

New Meme? Corporate and Banking Elite Have the Most to Lose from NWO

Washington Revs Up the Neo-Pecora Block?
December 27, 2012
Few write with more sincerity or skill in the alternative media than those who produce Washington's Blog, whoever they are. But we have some questions about this article, no matter its eloquence. The argument it advances seems to support what we call the Neo-Pe ...
The Erosion of Our Freedom
December 27, 2012
Often when I argue that governments must not violate our rights – they are supposed to be unalienable, after all – statists have a ready retort: Government is already violating them, good and hard, all over the place. Recently I pointed out that imposing fi ...
Something Wicked Comes This Way
December 26, 2012

Newsweek Print Edition Folds
December 24, 2012

Government Security is Just Another Kind of Violence
December 24, 2012

Gun Control Obscenities
December 24, 2012

UN Takes on Al Qaeda in Mali
December 21, 2012

Depleted Uranium Receives More Attention
