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 […]

I was radicalised by a neo-Nazi group. It could just have easily been Isis | James Fry | Comment is free | The Guardian

The confusion that had been my constant companion, now viewed through this extremist lens, had suddenly become both figuratively and literally black and white. No longer was I to blame for anything. I didn’t need to look at my part in my own downward spiral, as teachers, family members and police kept telling me. All […]

FOCUS | French Government’s Response to Paris Shooting Echoes U.S. Response to 9/11

Al Qaeda: Zawahiri Ordered ‘Charlie Hebdo’ Attack | Foreign Policy

Whatever its actual role in the attack, al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) has received a publicity boost in its competition against the Islamic State.

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
