Privatization Is A Ramp For Corruption

Libertarian ideology favors privatization.  However, in practice privatization is usually very different in result than libertarian ideology postulates. Almost always, privatization becomes a way for well-connected private interests to loot both the public purse and the general welfare. Most privatizations, such as those that have occurred in France and UK during the neoliberal era, and in Greece today and Ukraine tomorrow, are lootings of public assets by politically-connected private ...Read full article...

A total of 24 independent scientists participated in the review, which resulted in a 50 page document on the ...Read full article...

Fascist Police Attack Anti-Maidan Protesters in Eastern Ukraine

A previous article discussed Eastern Ukrainian resistance. Thousands in Kharvov, Donetsk, Dnepropetrovsk, Lugansk, Odessa, Nikolayev and elsewhere reject Kiev putschists. They want local autonomy.

The Russians Aren’t Coming

Norman Jewison’s 1966 film titled “The Russians Are Coming, The Russians Are Coming” portrayed a Soviet threat, albeit satirically. Today, outrageous headlines irresponsibly suggest Russian hordes threaten Ukraine. Truth is polar opposite. It doesn’t matter. On March 28, Ukraine’s propaganda news service Ukrinform headlined “Russia continues to redeploy troops to Ukrainian border.” It quoted ...Read full article...

Containing Russia

It’s longstanding US policy. In his March 18 address on Crimea, Putin was right saying: “(W)e have every reason to assume that the infamous policy of containment, led in the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries, continues today.” Western nations are “constantly trying to sweep us into a corner because we have an independent position, because we maintain it, and because we call things like they are and do not ...Read full article...

Dueling East-West Agendas on Ukraine: America Wants War

Washington’s Ukrainian agenda is polar opposite Moscow’s. It’s irresponsible. It’s unjustifiable. Reports suggest it’s in two parts. It calls for Moscow to halt Crimean annexation efforts. It wants demobilization of legitimately deployed Russian troops related to its Black Sea Fleet as well as Crimea’s self-defense force. It wants a so-called contact group established. Included would be Washington, representatives of EU nations, Russia and Ukraine’s illegitimate Kiev government. It wants ...Read full article...

Ukraine: “The Worst Case Scenario is World War III”
