Solemn ceremonies and religious services have been held across the world to commemorate the soldiers who lost their lives during WWII, and whose ultimate fate was never established. | The USSR paid by far the largest cost in human lives during WWII, both military and civilian.

Dan Corjescu | dissidentvoice.org | 2019-11-30
Imagine this rather typical SF scenario: alien invaders arrive on Earth. They are vastly superior in intelligence, technology, and most importantly, ethics.

Fight Back | fightbacknews.org | 2019-11-28
To mark the Nov. 28, 1820 birthday of the revolutionary Frederick Engels, Fight Back News Service is circulating the one of his writings — On Authority. | On Authority | A number of Socialists have latterly launched a regular crusade against what they call the principle of authority. It suffices to tell them that this or that act is authoritarian for it to be condemned. This summary mode of procedure is being abused to such an extent that it has become necessary to look into the matter somewhat more closely. | Authority, in the sense in which the word is used here, means: the imposition of the will of anoth…

"An Attack on the Human Rights Movement": Israel Deports Human Rights Watch Monitor
Staff | democracynow.org | 2019-11-26
The Israeli government deported the director of Human Rights Watch's Israel and Palestine office, Omar Shakir, on Monday. The organization said the move places Israel in an "ugly club" of authoritarian regimes. Israel has accused Shakir of supporting the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement, a nonviolent global campaign aiming to pressure Israel over its treatment of Palestinians. A 2017 Israeli law bans foreigners from Israel if they publicly support the BDS movement. Omar Shakir joins us from Stockholm to discuss his recent deportation and his plans to address the European Parliament regarding Israel's sy…
