Patriotism v revisionism: Trump’s war against the 1619 Project is a battle for the soul of America

Slavoj Zizek: The treatment of Assange is an assault on everyone’s personal freedoms

Julian Assange has had his rights stripped away in a case that should alarm millions, but too few people care because his character has been assassinated. He might have to go to prison before he gets the support he deserves….

At least Trump is honest about his political assassinations

US President Donald Trump has said he had wanted to assassinate Syria’s Bashar al-Assad after all, contradicting his own earlier claims. It wouldn’t be Washington’s first political killing – what’s unusual is to boast about them. Trump admitted to his…

The Covid-19 ‘rule of six’ is a joke, and if Boris thinks the police will do his dirty work in enforcing it, he’s wrong

The prime minister needs to understand you can’t use officers to enforce Covid-19 laws that no one believes are necessary. His authoritarian approach is wrong and he’s failed to persuade people that such bans are required. One thing you learn…

Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death sets in motion a battle for the future of the Supreme Court, the rule of law and the concept of an independent judiciary. It will be a battle without a victor, and American democracy will be…

Caitlin Johnstone: RBG death means two-headed uniparty will threaten Americans with removal of civil rights

US Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has died, which means the US election is going to revolve around abortion and other civil rights for the foreseeable future. Which won’t change much, since this presidential race hasn’t really been about…

A second lockdown for Britain? The evidence simply doesn’t justify it

With few people dying, or even being hospitalised, from Covid-19, why are the UK’s governments seemingly so desperate to slap ever more restrictions on our most basic liberties? On Monday, the ‘rule of six’ came into effect in the UK….

Can 1776 ‘Trump’ 1619? For the United States of America to survive, it needs more self-awareness & less self-hatred

The fact that critics of US President Donald Trump think his push for patriotic education will result in a new ‘Hitler Youth’ is proof enough that stuff like the 1619 Project is challenging the very survival of America. Speaking in…

Liberal rage over Kyle Rittenhouse’s inclusion on assignment about ‘heroes’ will teach schools to ban independent thought

The outpouring of rage over the inclusion of Kenosha shooter Kyle Rittenhouse in a Dallas teacher’s assignment on historical figures that also included victim Joseph Rosenbaum proves the real problem is with critical thinking. A Dallas high school English teacher…
