Comprehensive Trade And Economic Agreement And The Transatlantic Trade And Investment Partnership: Don’t Let Them Get Away With It

As part of the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), there are plans to enshrine massive powers for corporations that will allow them to challenge regulations both at home and abroad if they affect profits.

Global Terrorism Index Offers Six Constructive Alternatives To Current "Ineffective & Counterproductive" War On Terrorism

The Global Terrorism Index 2014' released by The Institute for Economics & Peace, has included several solutions to the terrorism problem. Under the 'EXPERT CONTRIBUTIONS' of the report, two experts have offered SIX THINGS TO DO LESS OFTEN and SIX DIRECTIONS FOR CONSTRUCTIVE ALTERNATIVES in the fight against terrorism.The paper conveys a sense of frustration at the simple-minded approach to fighting terrorism, which they suggest is encouraged by the media to the public, which in turn sways public policy of elected leaders to act swiftly and violently. These practices result in repeating the same mistakes for decades with little or no public policy debate as to if these anti-terrorism policies are actually working. And actually, the paper points out very cogently that the policies are not only not working but are encouraging and in many cases multiplying terrorist resistance.

The West's Ignorance of Ukraine Atrocities is an Outrage

For somebody like me who vividly remembers the loud and indignant protests of western human rights NGOs, media and governments over human rights violations in Chechnia, Bosnia or Kosovo (including plenty of completely fictional ones!), it is amazing to see how "for some mysterious reasons" the Ukrainian atrocities seem to go unnoticed in the West.

The very same West who is absolutely outraged about the arrest of Pussy Riot activist and who seems to seriously believe that organizing a "gay pride parade' in Moscow is a human right is apparently totally indifferent to the gang rape of 12-14 year old girls.

What does this say about the West, it's values, it's leaders, media and people?
