The General Ideological Changes of Direction After Hitler’s Downfall

July 13, 2013


Why are so many Americans so ill-informed about the science of political economy?  Did the United States of America really just pick up where the Nazis left off after World War II? What does it say about the general ideological changes of direction since the downfall of Hitler that the only “public intellectuals” allowed by […]

The Papacy, again: More on Popes and Fascists

March 14, 2013


As a follow-up to yesterday’s commentary on the Argentine fascist who has been named the new pope, we have something else cooked up for our readers.  We present, for your consideration, this collage of popes with fascist and right-wing dictators, some of whom were elected into power: From top-left, going clockwise: Leo XIII with Otto […]

Juan Cole Watch: What does Juan Cole’s secret Love Affair with the CIA say about Academia?

January 27, 2013


Middle East Studies professor Juan Cole fancies himself something of a superstar among academic armchair-leftists, thanks in no small part to his mindless and puerile blog Informed Comment, which is apparently quite popular among other academic armchair-leftists.  What are the “left-wing” credentials of somebody like Juan Cole, though?  It remains something of a question.  After […]

Juan Cole Watch: Why is Prof. Cole so concerned about Jesus’ wife?

September 26, 2012


Last week, when the story came out about an interesting papyrus containing an ancient Coptic text mentioning Jesus’ wife, Prof. Juan Cole of the University of Michigan, naturally, felt the need to chime in on the topic via his lackluster blog, Informed Comment.  The post, entitled “The Gospel of Jesus’ Wife and Sacred History from […]

The Case of Jim Bridenstine and John Sullivan: What Is Democracy?

July 2, 2012


By W. L. D. Jim Bridenstine beat incumbent John Sullivan in last Tuesday’s Republican Party primary in the 1st congressional district of Oklahoma, which includes the city of Tulsa.  In accordance with the political winds of our times, Bridenstine was the so-called “Tea Party favorite” over Sullivan, although in practical terms, all signs indicate that […]

Conservative values evoke one-sided materialism, Tim Tebow’s theological trickery

January 14, 2012


By Frank W. Strauch Many people often make the mistake of asserting that Man is created in the image of God, but, in fact, it works the other way around.  Since the supersensual world of the Idea is nothing more than the reflection and externalization of the sensual world of Matter, then why does Tim […]

Obama’s Math of Class Warfare, or Morality and Reason

September 20, 2011


By Bruno Fournier Today, Barack Obama gave a speech outlining his proposal to cut the deficit by trillions of dollars, and he made it quite clear that the raw numbers of the situation require tax increases for the wealthiest Americans.  Then, to assuage any fears of the unthinkable, he added, “This is not class warfare; […]

Is Gay Marriage actually Conservative?

June 12, 2011


By Bruno Fournier Let’s face one of the most contentious issues of the contemporary U.S. culture wars head-on: Gay Marriage.  What I am about to present here may seem an act of sacrilege to many, but that is because it is so infrequently attempted.  The Gay Rights movement and the explosive issue of gay marriage […]

What’s happening in Wisconsin? I wish that I knew…

March 6, 2011


By Bruno Fournier Because the truth is that I don’t.  Media coverage of the recent strikes and occupation of the state Capitol building has been surprisingly sparse.  Of course, the People’s World—the hip, web-savvy scion of the old communist-affiliated Daily Worker—has been covering the story, and it comes right up with a few non-communist-affiliated Google […]
