Amusing Ourselves To Death

By NEIL POSTMAN 

“Just about anyone has access to a public library (at least in America). In that library we find the greatest, most profound, most illuminating literature that human beings have so far produced. Do most people read these books? Have you read Cervantes? Have you read the sonnets of Shakespeare? Have you read Hegel or Nietzsche? Their books are in the library, you have access to them, why have you not familiarized yourself with this literature? Even if you have, I think you will agree that most people have not. Why?” —  Neil Postman Read More

“NETANYAHU’S TIME IS UP.”

For most Israelis, the general election was about one thing and one thing only. Not the economy, not the occupation, not even corruption scandals. It was about Benjamin Netanyahu. Should he head yet another far-right government, or should his 10-year divisive rule come to an end?  Israelis have made their verdict clear: Netanyahu’s time is up. Read More

Following the devastating airstrikes on Saudi Arabia’s oil industry, US Vice President Mike Pence flexed his tough-talking muscles, vowing that his country is “ready to defend our interests and allies… make no mistake about it.”

Don’t you think the assurance is a bit late? Saudi Arabia – a historic and key ally of Washington – had its entire oil production knocked out by 50 per cent last weekend when it came under aerial attack. Global markets were rattled over possible critical fuel shortages as the world’s biggest exporter of crude oil might not recover full production for weeks. Read More

Israel Election Results: Trump Just Lost His Wall — the One He Called Bibi Netanyahu

What Bibi knows is exactly what Trump, in his heart of hearts, must truly fear. The look of a different wall from the inside. The prison wall.

“Cheer up, Bibi, you can always commit suicide!”

True, Donald Trump promised and failed to deliver a wall paid for by the Mexicans he so viciously incited against. And true, he has forced military families into distress, their children denied proper schools and other necessities, just to pay for part of the wall he’s failed to deliver. But, from the first and all along, the flailing president had one strong, imposing wall to fall back on. And now it’s gone. It was called Benjamin Netanyahu. Read More

The “Five Dancing Israelis” who turned out to be Israeli Mossad agents caught filming and celebrating the destruction of the twin towers. Arrested by police and released without investigation, they were not mentioned in the 911 Commission Report.  

THE  FIVE  DANCING  ISRAELIS

Later on Israeli TV they said they were sent to New York to film the destruction of the twin towers.  Allegedly, there was no advance warning of the event, but obviously the Israelis knew. (See this infographic)

If you vote in U.S. elections, you ought to be ashamed of yourself, because without asking questions, you are voting for war — and not just war, but illegal preventive war, which is nothing less than a war on everyone. It is the way the USA has always done business, and in fact, the way you have always voted. Read More

Unfit to Rule

As British MPs trash democracy and become ‘the Enemies of the People’, the big question is: Who will deliver us from these knaves and fools?


“It makes no difference who you vote for — the two parties are really one party representing the interests of four percent of the people.” — Gore Vidal


Queen Victoria must be turning in her grave and muttering darkly, “We are NOT amused!” Not since the Battle of Waterloo (1815) have there been scenes of such pandemonium in Perfidious Albion. Nay, not since Julius Caesar’s legions swept into Britain in 55 BC and flabbergasted the flaxen-haired natives with their giant catapults and caterwauling cries. Do I exaggerate? Well, perhaps a wee bit, but not too much. Read More
