Food Sovereignty: A Manifesto for the Future of Our Planet

13 October 2021 — Internationalist 360°

“Our historic task is to ensure that no human being goes hungry”

Food Sovereignty is a philosophy of life.

It offers a vision for our collective future, and defines the principles around which we organize our daily living and co-exist with Mother Earth. It is a celebration of life and all the diversity around us. It embraces every element of our cosmos; the sky above our heads, the land beneath our feet, the air we breathe, the forests, the mountains, valleys, farms, oceans, rivers and ponds. It recognizes and protects the inter-dependency between eight million species that share this home with us.

Covid Totalitarianism: The Deification of Error

7 October 2021 —  John Waters Unchained

Belgian psychologist Dr. Mattias Desmet may be the most articulate voice on the most clear and present danger facing us: the mob-baiting now being pursued by formerly democratic governments.

John Waters

The most significant obstacle to our developing the necessary capacity to fight back against what is engulfing us is an imaginative block preventing us conceiving of the possibility that what seems to be happening could actually be happening. These things could not be happening here, now, for the very simple reason that they are the kind of thing that used to happen far away, in different times, to people who were not as ‘intelligent’ or ‘educated’  or ‘advanced’ as we are.

The Climate Bomb: Failures to Confront the Unspeakable, and The Way Ahead

14 October 2021 — Global Research

Part II

By Elizabeth Woodworth

In the last 50 years there have been two major threats to life on our planet.  The first, the nuclear arms race and its near disaster of 1962, was narrowly averted by President John F. Kennedy and his brother Robert Kennedy, who then set a course for peace. [There’s a PART I to this essay but  I have been unable to locate it. WB]

The second, the ticking climate bomb on its short “business as usual” fuse, has no solution in sight.

Capitalism has no endgame besides collapse & feudalistic warfare

 15 October 2021 — See You in 2020

I got the image above from here

In the future that capital and empire are creating, the ones with the power will be people like Erik Prince. The ultra-wealthy oligarchs that have created private armies, and can hold a monopoly on violence in a world where even the imperialist countries have largely devolved into failed states. This type of dystopian vision for what could come after capitalism collapses has been called techno-feudalism. A reversion to the socioeconomic system that produced capitalism, one where the new feudal lords have the powers of modern weaponry.

Gaslighting 1.1 Billion Africans

15 October 2021 — Consortium News

It is generally easier for countries that offer development finance for energy projects to make low-carbon rules for others, not for themselves, write Benjamin Attia and Morgan Bazilian.

US Writes Belarus into Its Familiar Regime-Change Script

14 October 2021 — MintPress News

MINSK, BELARUS — Quietly, the U.S. national security state is turning up the heat on Belarus, hoping that the ex-Soviet country of 9 million will be the next casualty of its regime-change agenda. This sentiment was made clear in President Joe Biden’s recent speech at the United Nations General Assembly. Biden announced that the U.S. would pursue “relentless diplomacy” finding “new ways of lifting people up around the world, of renewing and defending democracy.” The 46th president was explicit in whom he meant by this: “The democratic world is everywhere. It lives in the anti-corruption activists, the human rights defenders, the journalists, the peace protestors on the frontlines of this struggle in Belarus, Burma, Syria, Cuba [and] Venezuela,” he said, putting Belarus first on the list of states in desperate need of a change in government.

Fascism: The American Dream

14 October 2021 — Internationalist 360°

Tristan Graham

Facism and imperialism - two sides of the same coin.

Settle your quarrels, come together, understand the reality of our situation, understand that fascism is already here, that people are already dying who could be saved, that generations more will live poor butchered half-lives if you fail to act. Do what must be done, discover your humanity and your love in revolution.

George L. Jackson
