Who is responsible for death threats from a Twitter bot?

So who is responsible? I can’t claim familiarity with Dutch law (although I’m assuming tulips have special rights), but I’ve argued before that in the United States the First Amendment protection of free speech extends to robots—including bots. It would be unconstitutional for American police to require van der Goot to shut down the bot […]

A story published in Mother Jones magazine and comments from former CBS News colleagues suggest that Mr O’Reilly embellished his vantage point of the conflict, though the Fox News host staunchly denies those charges.

As Germany Stands Firm Against Attempts to Scale Back Austerity in Greece, What’s Next for Syriza? – In These Times

Since winning the country’s election on January 25, Syriza has been on shaky footing. First, they inherited a country running out of money, a bailout agreement on the brink of expiring and a humanitarian crisis. They won largely by campaigning against all of the above. Second, they needed to form a coalition in order to […]

Harsh Harper: Erasing Aboriginal Past

Aotearoa: A Wider Perspective

"The war is not meant to be won, it is meant to be continuous. Hierarchical society is only possible on the basis of poverty and ignorance. This new version is the past and no different past can ever have existed. In principle the war effort is always planned to keep society on the brink of starvation. The war is waged by the ruling group against its own subjects and its object is not the victory over either Eurasia or East Asia, but to keep the very structure of society intact." George Orwell
