Supreme Court Wields Law as a Weapon in Class War on the Poor

by Michael Novick, Anti-Racist Action-L.A. https://antiracist.org The latest decisions by the dominant far-right majority on the Supreme Court underscore the reality that "lawfare" is a form of class warfare, in which bourgeois illusions that the courts offer any protection for the rights of poor and working people or of nature only serve to disarm people's movements. The courts, particularly the US Supreme Court, are a manifestation of the undemocratic nature of the [...]

The economy: You’re right to be skeptical

Democrats in office and their media apologists push the story that the economy is doing great — look at low unemployment and improving inflation. Everything’s fine! Why isn’t the public getting it, they ask? Simple. Their numbers don’t reflect people’s everyday reality. And that’s not by accident. Employment and inflation fictions Let’s take job figures. Logically, unemployment numbers should include all the people who want to work but can’t find a job. [...]

U.S. and its Allies: Permanent War Economies

By Bruce K. Gagnon, https://space4peace.org/newsletters/ Three areas under conflict draw most of my attention these days. Palestine (Gaza and the West Bank), the US-NATO proxy war on Russia using Ukraine as the hammer, and the destabilization of China with Washington’s allies in the Asia-Pacific playing the role of Mr. Big’s henchmen. At this current time the US military industrial complex is working overtime with Congress and the Pentagon to ramp up US-NATO weapons production [...]
