Not Were Neanderthals Religious, But Are We?
Martin LeFevre: It's widely known that some Neanderthals buried their dead, inspiring some anthropologists to deduce that Neanderthals were religious. Perhaps we should find out what it means to be religious before declaring the cousins that Homo sapiens drove to extinction to be religious. ... Homo sapiens is passed due to understand what being religious, which has little or nothing to do with religions, actually means. Our survival as a species now depends on it...

Power to the People: John Lennon’s Legacy Lives On
John W. Whitehead: John Lennon - "I think all our society is run by insane people for insane objectives... I think we’re being run by maniacs for maniacal means. ... But I’m liable to be put away as insane for expressing that. That’s what’s insane about it.” ... “Peace is not something you wish for; It’s something you make, Something you do, Something you are, And something you give away.” ... “If you want peace, you won’t get it with violence.” ... “All you need is love. Love is all you need.” ... Visit Website ]

The Need to Hold Saudi Arabia Accountable
Robert Parry: One of Official Washington’s favorite “group thinks” is to insist that Iran is the “chief sponsor of terrorism,” but the reality is that Saudi Arabia is much guiltier and U.S. officials know it ... If someone wants to become somebody in Official Washington, there are certain lies that you must assert as undeniable truths, almost like flashing a secret sign to gain entry to an exclusive club. For instance, you must say that Iran is the world’s “chief sponsor of terrorism” though that is patently false.... Visit Website ]

Universal Basic Income Will Accelerate Innovation by Reducing Our Fear of Failure
Scott Santens: Buckminster Fuller - “We must do away with the absolutely specious notion that everybody has to earn a living. It is a fact today that one in ten thousand of us can make a technological breakthrough capable of supporting all the rest.” ... If everyone received as an absolute minimum, a sufficient amount of money each month to cover their basic needs for that month no matter what — an unconditional basic income — then the fear of hunger and homelessness is eliminated... And with it, the risks of failure... Visit Website ]

The Dakota Access Pipeline And Doctrine Of Native Genocide
Tim Scott: Knowing the enduring historic and structural nature of this modern struggle — a struggle in which the Water Protectors have courageously confronted violent local, state and private militarized forces, inspiring support from thousands of US military veterans – is vital to understanding its significance. ... While the origins of the legal doctrine that facilitated conquest, genocide and the structure of settler colonialism in the US is well known to Native people throughout North America (and beyond), they are less known to current generations of white settlers...

Lies, Damn Lies, and Punditry
Martin LeFevre: Truth has been in the news a lot lately. I'm speaking tongue-in-cheek of course, since you'll never find the truth in the news. It's being said we're in "the post-truth era." ... What people mean by 'the post-truth era' doesn't refer to the search for truth at all. What they're really talking about is the post-fact era, in which presidential candidates and their supporters make up their own facts ... What's necessary is to question and have the intent to face facts, inwardly and outwardly...

The Mafia State
Chris Hedges: Systems of governance that are seized by a tiny cabal become mafia states. The early years—Ronald Reagan and Bill Clinton in the United States—are marked by promises that the pillage will benefit everyone. The later years—George W. Bush and Barack Obama—are marked by declarations that things are getting better even though they are getting worse. The final years—Donald Trump—see the lunatic trolls, hedge fund parasites, con artists, conspiracy theorists and criminals drop all pretense and carry out an orgy of looting and corruption...

Huge Antarctica Glacier in Serious Trouble
Robert Hunziker: The global warming crisis seems to get worse and worse, faster and faster. ... a meltdown of a significant part of Antarctica, like West Antarctica, has the potential, according to new research, to submerge Miami and New York during current lifetimes. This is the first time scientific observation has officially come to the conclusion that such a horrendous meltdown is probable so soon! ... Visit Website ]

Wholeness Is Beyond Belief
Martin LeFevre: Doubt is the most important quality for a genuinely spiritual person, the capacity for continually questioning oneself and the challenges of life. However few people, whether secular or so-called religious, can sustain such doubt. The human mind has a need for certainty, which comes at the expense of truth, leading to fixed beliefs and ideas, one way or another...

Expert Explains: What to Look for as Recount Results Trickle in
Klaus Marre: One example would be a voter using a checkmark on the ballot instead of filling in a bubble. A machine could count this as a non-vote while a human looking at the ballot during a recount would clearly be able to recognize voter intent. ... the scanner could also be programmed in a way that would make it “miss” a higher percentage of one candidate’s ballots than another’s. ... Among the signs to look for in this case are ballot containers that are misnumbered or improperly sealed... Visit Website ]

Forty Years Ago, the CIA Had Its Eye on Jamaica—and Bob Marley Got Shot
David Cupples: Forty years ago, on Dec. 3, 1976, Bob Marley was shot in a gangland assassination attempt in the heat of a contentious Jamaican election campaign pitting the United States’ favorite (Edward Seaga) against the incumbent prime minister (Michael Manley). The shooting in Marley’s Kingston home—which also wounded his wife, Rita, and at least two others—occurred 12 days before the scheduled elections and two days before a free concert Marley had agreed to play in hopes of bringing the people together and cooling the violence that had been occurring...

The Coming War on China
John Pilger: I have spent two years making a documentary film, The Coming War on China, in which the evidence and witnesses warn that nuclear war is no longer a shadow, but a contingency. The greatest build-up of American-led military forces since the Second World War is well under way. They are in the northern hemisphere, on the western borders of Russia, and in Asia and the Pacific, confronting China... Visit Website ]

How Rupert Murdoch & Fox Created the Fake News Industry
Juan Cole: The concern about “fake news” now sweeping the inside-the-beltway crowd is a little hilarious, since all corporate news (i.e. news for profit) has elements of fakeness. ... For instance, cable television news channels almost never cover climate change, and when they do they tend to give equal time to denialists. ... The reason for the dereliction of duty, which puts the welfare of all human beings at risk, is that the same corporations purveying the news also own a lot of stock in Exxon-Mobil and other Big Carbon companies...

The Orwellian War on Skepticism
Robert Parry: Official Washington’s rush into an Orwellian future is well underway as political and media bigwigs move to silence Internet voices of independence and dissent ... Under the cover of battling “fake news,” the mainstream U.S. news media and officialdom are taking aim at journalistic skepticism when it is directed at the pronouncements of the U.S. government and its allies... In May 2015, the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) issued a fact sheet summarizing its work financing friendly journalists around the world, including “journalism education, media business development, capacity building for supportive institutions, and strengthening legal-regulatory environments for free media.”...

The Anti-Empire Report #147 - Published November 30th, 2016
William Blum: What counts to me mainly at this early stage is that he – as opposed to dear Hillary – is unlikely to start a war against Russia. His questioning of the absolute sacredness of NATO, calling it “obsolete”, and his meeting with Democratic Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard, an outspoken critic of US regime-change policy, specifically Syria, are encouraging signs. ... The mainstream critics of Trump foreign policy should be embarrassed, even humbled, by what they supported in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, and Syria. Instead, what bothers them about the president-elect is his lack of desire to make the rest of the world in America’s image...
