EN | Shawna Sprowls |

We hear a lot about bulls and bears and the magic of the stock market. The magic is shared by a few. The richest 10 percent own 84 percent of all shares of stock. Remember the days when Republicans prided themselves on being fiscally responsible? Well, they're long gone. The deficit and the debt are astronomical. The 2008 crash ushered...
Joe Allen - Vietnam

EN | Shawna Sprowls |

All imperial systems attempt to reinvent the past, engineer history to suit their needs. The United States is no different. Vietnam is a perfect example. A war of aggression was transformed into a "conflict." It was "tragic" and a "mistake." At the other end of the spectrum, the so-called liberal Washington Post called the war a "just cause." That's the...

EN | Shawna Sprowls |

The history of the U.S. is one of settler colonialism. The state was established on the basis of white male supremacy, slavery, land theft and genocide. "From sea to shining sea" the Native nations were decimated and dispossessed. The survivors herded into concentration camps. It was God's will. The genocidal policy reached its peak under President Andrew Jackson. Its ruthlessness...

An ultra-rich New York real estate tycoon and celebrity TV star is the 45th president of the United States.

Corporations are riding high in the saddle. With their friends in Washington they are raking it in. That certainly is the case with the tax law passed by Congress in late 2017. If you look at the details it is warmed over trickle-down economics. While most workers will get crumbs, the big winners will be corporations. And along the way,...

The juvenile justice system is off the rails. It is in urgent need of reform.

The systemic problems range from racism to brutality and extreme sentencing. Thousands of...

We live in an era of fake news. Fabricated reports go viral on social media. Totally false stories are concocted then tweeted and retweeted. Fantastical theories and wild claims are circulated in cyberspace. It's as Orwell says in 1984, "The lie became truth." There is a lot of fire and fury inflaming the news cycle. The term fake news is...
