The Copts: a question for Egypt

President Hosni Mubarak had his first meeting with President George W Bush in Washington on 2 April.

Lawrence Davidson – The Dangerous Ideology of Religion

pre-set forms of thinking that shape people’s worldviews and, supposedly, help to order and simplify reality. While this supposition is always flawed to one extent or another, ideologies can be very seductive. In part this is because they free their adherents from the hard work of critical thinking. Thus, they are often held onto tenaciously. Because ideologies distort reality, they are …

Peter Koenig – Towards a Foreign Imposed “Political Transition” in Syria? The Broader War, US Threats directed against Russia

Washington has been quite successful in its wicked embrace of Syria over the last few weeks. Just imagine, Kerry, in a propaganda-painted gesture of goodwill, forges the Vienna Peace Conference, this past Friday, 30 October.

Egypt’s Descent into Despotism By Lawrence Davidson

Military officers often take over countries, but only a fool would call the result a government. Governments do not have to be democratic, but they do have to be rule-based. The rules can come in the form of generic laws or customs, but in all cases they have to be promulgated, that is, be publicly set forth. In addition, obedience …
