The global shift to the right has resulted in governments of countries trying to run themselves like corporations; Dubai and Singapore are examples that come to mind. Privatization, less government, less taxes, and less social benefits are in fashion. And yet some governments are on the verge of bankruptcy, if not broke already. Is this due to the cause of “more government” or the effect of “less government”? Let’s look at these two entities a bit closer…
A corporation is organized to run an economic activity that provides a return to its shareholders. Beyond this important but narrow... Read More

The pictures are grim, bloody and depressing, the final stages in the life of the Arab world's longest standing dictator. I never thought I could ever have any sympathy for Mummar Gaddafi, but now I do, seeing him treated like that, brutalised by a mob that could not resist taking trophy pictures on their phones, capturing the moment, capturing history, blood to be savoured at leisure.
And those who did not see his end and that of his son Mutassin have been able to queue up in Misrata, children included, to have a look at the remains, masks courteously provided to ward of the stink... Read More

Who do you think wrote that? Perhaps if I tell you that the author also referred to a another writer, one he did not like, as a ‘Nigger Jew’ you might have a better idea. Adolf Hitler, do you think, something possibly lifted from Mein Kampf? Or perhaps it was the delightful Julius Streicher, expressing himself freely in the pages... Read More
There he is, the voice of that new phenomena - Noam Chomsky, the voice of anti-capitalist, anti-business America; the voice of the huddled masses yearning for public doles. Yes, he is the old symptom of a new disease.
Insofar as the benighted Chomsky can be identified with anarchism, he shares the same intellectual confusion of others who fall into this category; people like Emma Goldman, who was seemingly unable to distinguish between democracy and fascism.
According to the view Chomsky puts forward in American Power and the New Mandarins, the United States, his own homeland,... Read More
