A minority can only rule a majority using two conscious levers. To co-opt and corrupt the leadership and thinkers of the working class. To divide the working class. What is breath taking over the last thirty years is how this corruption and these divisions have fused together in the form of the pervasive ideology of post-modernism, intersectionality and identity politics. In short not so much the end of history as the end of class politics.

What a difference a decade makes.
Just over ten years ago, on July 25, 2010, Wikileaks released 75,000 secret U.S. military reports involving the war in Afghanistan. The New York Times, The Guardian, and Der Spiegel helped release the documents, which were devastating to America’s intelligence community and military, revealing systemic abuses that included civilian massacres and an assassination squad, TF 373, whose existence the United States kept “protected” even from its allies.

‘First they came for the Communists, but I was not a Communist so I did not speak out.
Then they came for the Socialists and the Trade Unionists, but I was neither, so I did not speak out.
Then they came for the Jews, but I was not a Jew so I did not speak out.
And when they came for me, there was no one left to speak out for me.’ — Pastor Martin Niemoller. WB]
Update 11 May
UPDATE I today received a prison sentence of eight months for my reporting of the defence case in the Alex Salmond trial. I have a three week stay while we apply to this same court for permission to appeal to the Supreme Court. My appeal will be based on the simple fact that I did not identify anybody. It will also be based on the right to report the defence case being denied by an extraordinary, impossibly strict application of “jigsaw identification”, and on fair process not having been observed.

These events are part of the MRC’s The BBC and Beyond: Reimagining Public Media campaign, trying to reimagine what public media can be in the digital age. Later this year we will be creating a “Manifesto for a People’s Media”, with ideas for re-envisaging the BBC, Channel 4, and democratically-run independent media. If you have any ideas to contribute to our Manifesto, please tell us on the BBC and Beyond website!

Haitian protesters on the nation’s streets have a laundry list of reasons they believe President Jovenel Moïse should resign.
They blame Moïse for overstaying his term, which should have ended on Feb. 7, for fiscal austerity that has caused rapid inflation and deteriorating living conditions and for sponsoring gang attacks that have killed at least 240 people since 2018, according to human rights groups.

The epic establishment clean-up operation launched in the wake of James Le Mesurier’s apparent suicide was effective in the short term, but determined digging by critical journalists means the scandal definitely isn’t over yet.

Dr. Lee Merritt, an orthopedic spinal surgeon, was interviewed by Mike Adams on a recent episode of Brighteon Conversations. Dr. Merritt joins a growing list of medical professionals who see forced vaccines as a holocaust-level crime against humanity.
Medical systems are threatening doctors and nurses with termination if they do not comply with the forced vaccines. Universities are threatening to withhold education from students if they do not comply. Corporations are threatening to segregate people from venues, flights and other social gatherings if they do not comply. Governors like Gretchen Whitmer have turned the state of Michigan into a vaccine prison camp; she has threatened to take away everyone’s freedoms if they do not comply.
