  • Elites will make Gazans of us allChris Hedges

(Photo: Wissam Nassar / The New York Times)Gaza is a window on our coming dystopia. The growing divide between the world's elite and its miserable masses of humanity is maintained through spiraling violence. Many impoverished regions of the world, which have fallen off the economic cliff, are beginning to resemble Gaza, where 1.6 million Palestinians live in the planet's largest internment camp. These sacrifice zones, filled with seas of pitifully poor people trapped in squalid slums or mud-walled villages, are increasingly hemmed in by electronic fences, monitored by surveillance cameras and drones and surrounded by border guards or military units that shoot to kill. These nightmarish dystopias extend from sub-Saharan Africa to Pakistan to China. They are places where targeted assassinations are carried out, where brutal military assaults are pressed against peoples left defenseless, without an army, navy or air force. All attempts at resistance, however ineffective, are met with the indiscriminate slaughter that characterizes modern industrial warfare.

    September 13, 2011

    A small but vocal and intractable group of dissenters has long believed the 9/11 attacks did not happen as the U.S. government says they did. Truthers, as they are known, suggest the role of al-Qaeda has been overstated or invented. They point fingers at shadowy state forces being involved in a massive cover-up - or complicit in the attacks themselves.

  • Justin Bieber and the University of Manitoba controversyCorey Levine
    May 7, 2013

    Last weekend brought another knot in the string of controversies that has surrounded Justin Bieber of late. Currently on a European tour, the Canadian teen heartthrob had a guided tour of the Amsterdam house where Dutch Jewish teenager, Anne Frank, hid from the Nazis until her arrest in 1944. She later died in the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp a few months before the end of World War II. While in hiding, she wrote a diary, which was a sharp-eyed window into life during wartime.

I shall be in Ghana then and iPlayer does not work abroad, so if anybody has the technical ability to make a sound file and send it to me, I should be grateful.
