- Edward Snowden: 5 years in Russia and still relevant as ever by Seraphim Hanisch from The Duran. I have been curious about Snowden's personal life in Russia and the author provides some information on this.
- AngloZionist attack options against Iran by "The Saker" from his website A bird's eye view of the Vineyard. I think when the author makes this political observation about how our ruling class regards Trump, he is right on target.
It appears that the Neocons have a basic strategy which goes like this: “we hate Trump and everything he represents, but we also control him; let’s use him to do all the crazy stuff no sane US President would ever do, and then let’s use the fallout of these crazy decisions and blame it all on Trump; this way we get all that we want and we get to destroy Trump in the process only to replace him with one of “our guys” when the time is right“.
- Class exploitation and the market: The secret of the $1 trillion corporation by Andre Damon from World Socialist Web Site. Read this to see how the author reaches this conclusion:
The coming period will see many expressions of growing working-class resistance to exploitation and inequality. These struggles can only succeed if workers understand that they are confronting not just one company, union or government, but the entire capitalist system, whose basic operation is predicated on the continuous suppression of workers’ wages for the enrichment of the financial oligarchy.
