"The wealthy, not only by private fraud but also by common laws, do every day pluck and snatch away from the people some part of their daily living. Therefore, when I consider and weigh in my mind these commonwealths which nowadays do flourish, I perceive nothing but a certain conspiracy of rich men in procuring their own commodities under the name and authority of the commonwealth.

They invent and devise all means and crafts, first how to keep safely without fear of losing that which they have unjustly gathered together, and next how to hire and abuse the work and labor of the people for as little money and effort as possible."

Chomsky on Israeli war crimes in Gaza

Naturally one shouldn't expect to see this issue explored anywhere in the American mainstream media hologram so, once again, Znet to the rescue.

60 minutes has a story on the palestinian israeli conflict.it some of the historical problems but focused more on the checkpoints,illegal settlements, isreali soldiers occupying palestian homes in the west bank for "recon" purposes.it was shocking to see a American media outlet show something besides the bad palestians. If you are interested 60 minutes has a YouTube channel where they show past episodes. Stay safe!!
Ps looks like the king is appointing the head of cta as CEO of cps. Incredible. I feel really bad for cps students and facualty.

Yeah I caught that since it was also posted at Lenin's Tomb and A Tiny Revolution... quite a shock coming from the MSM.

You're absolutely correct about Shortshanks... putting yet another corporate tool in a position to oversee the further privatization of another public institution is entirely in character. I'm waiting for the other shoe to drop and soon we'll be wearing logos on our uniforms and patrol vehicles (NASCAR-lite) after this bastard "leases" the services of the CPD to the highest bidder for "only" the following 99 years.
