BRUCE E. LEVINE – Killing “Schizophrenics”: Contemporary U.S. Psychiatry Versus Nazi Psychiatry

In any society that prioritizes economic efficiency, productivity and order above life and all of life’s varieties, people experiencing altered and extreme emotional states will be seen as defective and as burdens—monkey wrenches that disturb the societal assembly line. To be clear, contemporary American society is not Nazi-German society when it comes to treating people labeled with “serious mental illness,” …

BOB RAE – Orwell’s lessons for the era of Trump: Rae

George Orwell is best known for his novels Animal Farm and 1984. Both were written toward the end of a life cut short by tuberculosis. But they came after a long period of reflection, activism, and engagement, through what one writer has called the “dark valley” of the 1920s and 30s and the death and destruction of the Second World …

Yuri Rubtsov – Hitler Was Financed by the Federal Reserve and the Bank of England

More than 70 years ago was the start of the greatest slaughter in history. The recent resolution of the parliamentary Assembly of the OSCE fully equalizes the role of the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany at the outbreak of the Second World War, except that it had the purely pragmatic purpose of extorting money from Russia on the contents of …

Stephen Lendman – The Clinton Crime Family. “Hillary is the Most Dangerous Presidential Aspirant in US History”

The Bill and Hillary crime family long ago should have been held accountable for high crimes against peace and numerous others. Hillary is the most recklessly dangerous presidential aspirant in US history, supporting endless imperial wars and state terror, once saying “(w)hat do we have NATO for if not to defend our way of life.” She endorses first-strike nuclear weapons …

PETER LEVENDA – NAZI TERRORIST CONNECTION: HITLER’S LEGACY, PART 2

A lot has been written about the hidden Nazi networks in Europe and South America. What many investigators have missed, however, is the true extent of this network in the United States. While we have all heard of former concentration camp guards being arrested in America and deported to stand trial abroad, we have not learned of the underground support …

Richard Steigmann-Gall – One Expert Says, Yes, Donald Trump is a Fascist. And It’s Not Just Trump.

In ways that immediately brought to mind dangerous parallels with the yellow Star of David patch worn by Jews during the Third Reich, Donald Trump in November suggested that Syrian refugees, posing as allegedly dangerous Fifth Columnists, should wear badges on account of their Muslim faith so that they could not infiltrate American society and carry out plots against the nation.  …

Aidan O’Brien – The Shadow of Mein Kampf: Europe’s Struggle With Itself

The good news is that one million migrants made it into Europe in 2015. The bad news is that Mein Kampf is back on Germany’s bookshelves. Europe’s struggle with itself continues. A race between universalism (Marx) and paranoia (Hitler) has restarted and it’s not sure which will win this time around. As NATO pushes East in search of lebensraum. And …

Norman Pollack – Dynamics of False Consciousness: America Today

Class is integral to capitalism, the former its defining structure, the latter the directed purpose of a societal-historical process of wealth concentration whose intended purpose is systemic inequality. To legitimize this historical formation over time, given its inherent and myriad features of domination, requires persistent, sustaining, effective doses of false consciousness transmitted downward through the social order in the form …

Eve Fairbanks – Hillary Clinton: Wiki Woman

Back when we got basic information from encyclopedias instead of Wikipedia, politicians were at the mercy of the encyclopedia-writers’ particular biases. Take the 1911 edition of the Encyclopedia Britannica. Apparently controlled by smug British nationalists, it described the important Irish leader Charles Stewart Parnell as “not over-scrupulous,” “repellent,” “powerful for evil,” and, owing to the “mental affliction of his ancestors,” …
