Pilger: Marching for Anzac
Apr 22, 2011
The street where I grew up in Sydney was a war street. There were long silences, then the smashing of glass and screams. Pete and I played Aussies-and-Japs.
Podur: Fukushima & Low-Probability
Mar 30, 2011
A friend from the movement asked me my thoughts on George Monbiot's article in the UK Guardian about how Fukushima actually converted him to nuclear power...

Parenti: Profit Pathology
Feb 27, 2011
The free marketeers have a deep all-abiding faith in laissez-faire for it is a faith that serves them well.

Pilger: Australia’s Katrina Moment

Parenti: The Mafia & Me
Jan 21, 2011
Like many others of Italian-American heritage, I experienced some discomfort when in 1951 Senator Estes Kefauver, a Democrat from Tennessee, launched his highly publicized investigation into the organized rackets, uncovering scores of thugs with Italian surnames.
Pilger: Wikileaks War
Jan 14, 2011
The attacks on WikiLeaks and its founder, Julian Assange, are a response to an information revolution that threatens old power orders, in politics and journalism.
Parenti: Money Game
Dec 10, 2010
For years certain pundits and political scientists have insisted that money is not all that important in winning elections. Large sums expended on campaigns glean only an extra percentage point or two in votes, we are told, and often the candidate who spends the most ends up losing anyway.
Pilger: Reports from Saigon
Dec 03, 2010
The rain sheeted down, time washed away. I looked down from the rooftop in Saigon where, more than a generation ago, in the wake of the longest war of modern times, I had watched silent, sullen streets awash.
Podur: Wikileaks Cablegate
Dec 02, 2010
The US Embassy cables put out by Wikileaks are not the truth... instead, they will show just what US officials have been up to, what they have been thinking, and what they have been reporting for years, most of which could be inferred by the effects of the actions and by reading between the lines of their stated claims.

Pilger: Party Game Is Over
Nov 07, 2010
These days, the stirring lines of Percy Shelley’s The Mask of Anarchy may seem unattainable. I don’t think so. Shelley was both a Romantic and political truth-teller.

Oct 29, 2010
A 12-year old girl I know has spent most of her years in parochial or public schools. This year, she’s got a full scholarship to a very expensive all girls’ school in Boston.
Pilger: Chile's Ghosts
Oct 15, 2010
The rescue of 33 miners in Chile is an extraordinary drama filled with pathos and heroism. It is also a media windfall for the Chilean government, whose every beneficence is recorded by a forest of cameras.
Pilger: Murdoch & the BBC
Sep 30, 2010
Britain is said to be approaching its Berlusconi Moment. That is to say, if Rupert Murdoch wins control of Sky he will command half the television and newspaper market and threaten what is known as public service broadcasting.
