Mass Shootings, Empire, and Racist, Copaganda Dog Whistles

A lot of cross-posting usually indicates that the article is popular and some links may not work, depending on your location but I’ve kept them anyway, so at least the reader has some idea of the scale of censorship now operating in the ‘democratic’ West.

Disquiet at Davos and the Unsaid Fear of Failure – The First Shoots of a U.S. Ukraine Shift

Alastair Crooke

The unspoken fear disquieting Davos attendees is the fear of another débacle, following that of Afghanistan.
