Strauch Former Senator Rick Santorum just announced that he was suspending his campaign for the Republican Party nomination in the American presidential race.  It is not as if he ever had a chance in the first place against Mitt Romney, but now the way is paved for the embodiment of Capital itself, […]

Occupy Tulsa and the Contradiction of Left and Right

By Larry Duvalier Nobody likes to hear someone jabber on about German philosophy, but bear with me for a moment. After the death of G. W. F.
