The Power of Nightmares

The end of ideology meant politicians couldn’t inspire with vision. Instead they had to offer to protect you from terrorism. This is what has led to the rise of the politics of fear.

How the US broke Mohamedou Ould Slahi

The details of how the US used coercive techniques (i.e. torture) on Slahi are truly abhorrent. What is interesting is how this torture tainted the information Slahi gave his interrogators and meant the judicial case against him fell apart, as explained by Andy Worthington

Cameron offers £650m for education

British Prime Minister, David Cameron, has promised £650m in aid to fund 4 million school places, 90,000 teachers, and refurbish 8,000 schools, arguing that “education is the best antidote to terror”. However, he offered it to PAKISTAN!

He has the nerve to spend this kind of money on brainwashing children in another country like a filthy imperialist while his own people are facing savage cuts and demonstrating for their rights. Students are being charged fees that will burden them with debt if it doesn’t prevent them from having an education. Bombing Libya isn’t cheap either. People have lost their homes, jobs, benefits and public services while inflation has risen - http://bbc.in/grmQ7a.

This means ordinary people are hit in the pocket.

Capitalism is a system of selfishness. It doesn’t serve its people unless its by accident (invisible hand). This isn’t free money for Pakistan either and there are always strings attached. Is it worth taking this money? No. Will the dogs ruling Pakistan take it? Are you joking? I’m just surprised they didn’t bite Cameron’s hands off.
