Proposal for a Participatory Socialist International

Comments Off

Published on Zcommunications.org,  not dated.

We, the undersigned, endorse the idea of a new International and urge that its creation include assessing, refining, augmenting, and then implementing as many of the following points as the International’s participants themselves, after due deliberation, decide mutually agreeable:

1. A new International should be primarily concerned (at least) with:

  • economic production, consumption, and allocation, including class relations,
  • kinship nurturance, socialization, house keeping, and procreation, including gender, sexuality, and age,
  • cultural community relations including race, nationality, and religion,
  • politics including relations of law and legislation,
  • international relations including matters of mutual aid, exchange, and immigration,
  • ecology including relations with the natural environment and other species.  Continue Reading…

… as school and family life come under new strain, teaching union head Mary Bousted urges a return to traditional values

Published on Times online.co.uk, from The Times, March 29, 2010.

There are few subjects that unite the middle classes more than bad behaviour in schools. Because although no one comes out and says it — it wouldn’t quite be form — the debate rests on the cosy assumption that the middleclass children are the victims and the working class the aggressors. As the well-heeled mother shelters her precious from the masses at the school gate, muttering “I blame the parents”, what she means is, “I blame poverty”. When did you last see a Boden family subjecting themselves to the wrath of Supernanny? … //

… There are two main causes of the problem. The first is time. Bousted talks sympathetically of parents rushing to “pick children up from the childminder after a 10, 11-hour day. We get home, we’re exhausted.” Now 50, she has a 20-year-old daughter.  Continue Reading…

Are We Selfish Individuals or an Empathic Society?

The Answer Could Determine Whether We Have a Future

Published on AlterNet.org, by  Jeremy Rifkin, March 27, 2010.

The following is an adapted excerpt from Jeremy Rifkin’s new book, ‘The Empathic Civilization: The Race to Global Consciousness in a World in Crisis’ (Tarcher/Penguin; January 2010).

… Today, we are on the cusp of another historic convergence of energy and communication–a third industrial revolution–that could extend empathic sensibility to the biosphere itself and all of life on Earth. The distributed Internet revolution is coming together with distributed renewable energies, making possible a sustainable, post-carbon economy that is both globally connected and locally managed.  Continue Reading…

La laïcité militante

… Quelques réjouissantes nouvelles sur ce fond d’absurdité:

Des changements récents dans la constitution du canton de Vaud, en Suisse romande, incite le CLIMS à comparer son sort avec celui de ses homologues français. Parmi les points les plus éclairés citons:

Article 169 Principes

Reinventing Pakistan

Comments Off

Published on Chowk, by Pervez Hoodbhoy, March 23, 2010.

It’s March 23, Pakistan Day, and time for the usual flag-waving. But let’s face it: things have not gone well for Pakistan. It has been a state since 1947 but is still not a nation. Missing is a strong common identity, mental makeup, shared sense of history, and common goals. The failure to effectively integrate flows from inequalities of wealth and opportunity, absence of effective democracy, and a dysfunctional legal system … //

… In Pakistan’s case this does not have to be centuries. Its people are diverse but almost all understand Urdu. They watch the same television programs, read the same newspapers, deal with the same irritating and inept bureaucracy, use the same badly written textbooks, buy similar products, and despise the same set of rulers. Slowly but surely, a Pakistani culture is emerging.  Continue Reading…

Google co-founder Sergey Brin urges US to act over China web censorship

Comments Off

Published on The Guardian.co.uk, by Bobbie Johnson in San Francisco and Ian Katz The Guardian, 24 March 2010.

Google co-founder Sergey Brin has called on Washington to take a stand against China’s censorship of the internet, urging the US to make the issue a “high priority”.

Brin, talking to the Guardian about Google’s decision yesterday to lift censorship from its Chinese internet search engine, called on government and businesses to act in order to put pressure on Beijing. “I certainly hope they make it a high priority,” he said. “Human rights issues deserve equal time to the trade issues that are high priority now … I hope this gets taken seriously” …

A decisive year in the battle against pandemics

Comments Off

Published on European Voice.com, by Michel Kazatchkine, 24.03.2010.

The past decade has demonstrated that, with international commitment, it is possible to reduce AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria substantially …

… 2010 will be a decisive year in the fight against the three pandemics: the world will review progress on the MDGs, and it will decide on replenishment of the Global Fund for 2011-13. The outcome will decide where the world will be in 2015 with regard to the health-related MDGs. If we continue to scale up rapidly, there is the possibility that malaria could be eliminated as a public-health problem in most malaria-endemic countries; millions more HIV infections might be prevented and lives otherwise lost to AIDS saved; the growing threat of multi-drug-resistant tuberculosis might be contained; and we might virtually eliminate transmission of HIV from mother to child.

A Great Achievement for a Decent, Civilized United States of America

Published on Dissident Voice, by Walter C. Uhler, March 23, 2010.

America’s Democrats, under the inspirational leadership of President Barack Hussein Obama, have single handedly guaranteed that some 32 million additional Americans will become eligible for health insurance, beginning in 2014. Single handedly, Democrats have guaranteed that insurance companies no longer can deny coverage to children with pre-existing medical problems, a guarantee that will be extended to all adults in 2014. Single handedly, Democrats have guaranteed that the so-called “doughnut hole” in the Medicare prescription drug benefit will close … //  Continue Reading…

Il est des professions d’une suffisance telle qu’elles ne voient jamais venir le danger !

CES ARISTOS QUI NOUS GOUVERNENT

Comments Off

Publié sur le site MAVERICK, au 7 mars: “Il semble que les individus qui, depuis la chute de la monarchie française, s’entendent pour établir un Ordre nouveau, ne fassent que jouer aux échecs entre eux.

Sujet « oublié » dans les livres d’Histoire, c’est tout de même à cause de Louis Philippe Joseph, duc d’Orléans, qu’ont capoté les efforts civilisateurs de la Révolution française. Surnommé Philippe Egalité, sans doute se considérait-il plus égal que les autres, puisqu’il cherchait à remplacer Louis XVI sur le trône de France.”

Quoi qu’il en soit, le vrai pouvoir se retrouve toujours dans les mains d’une aristocratie sous une forme ou une autre. Quant aux derniers nobles, qui aujourd’hui pactisent avec la roture* milliardaire de la planète, ils se considèrent encore de droit divin. C’est-à-dire comme étant les plus aptes à régner … (voir le texte entier).
