Week in Review: Police States, Failures of Capitalism and Global Warfare


Police States:

After reporting this week on a Pentagon-created plan for interning activists at re-education camps, questions were asked about the US Army manual that allegedly outlines the resettling of US citizens.

Failures of Capitalism:

“Independent observers knew it long ago. Today’s global economic crisis provides added confirmation. In 2008, a staunch champion of the system expressed second thoughts. More on him below. An ideology based on inequality, injustice, exploitation, militarism, and imperial wars eventually self-destructs or gets pushed.” (Predatory Capitalism Failed )

Global Warfare:

“After meeting with his German counterpart Thomas de Maiziere, [British Defence Secretary Philip]Hammond told the British press that World War II “was quite a long while ago” and as such Germany must cast off whatever residual misgivings it may harbor about reassuming an international military role within NATO, as “it is self-evident that there is still huge potential in the German defence structure to deliver more useful firepower to the alliance.” Germany must “significantly increase its military capability,” Hammond advocated.” (British Defence Chief: NATO Absolves Germany Of Nazi Past )
