Friday, 10 October 2014

Professor Michel Chossudovsky, progressive Canadian intellectual, will speak at various forums in Metro Manila from October 14 to 16 on the topic of America’s relentless wars and what it means for our future.

He is also launching his newest book, Imperial Conquest: America’s “Long War” against Humanity , soon to be available in e-book format. In this latest work, he focuses on various dimensions of America’s hegemonic wars, especially on the dangers of nuclear war and the evolution of military doctrine in the post-9/11 era. The central role of media propaganda as well as the failures of the anti-war movement will also be addressed.

Majority opinion holds that Europe has all it takes to become an economic and political power comparable to, and consequently independent of, the United States. The simple addition of its component populations with its GDP makes that seem obvious. As for me, I believe that Europe suffers from three major handicaps that rule out such a comparison.

Journals December 2013 - Confronting a Decrepit Imperialist Monster
Written by Antonio Tujan Jr.   
Friday, 20 December 2013

Three years since the declaration by international economic institutions such as the IMF and the OECD that global recession in 2008 has ended in 2010, the absence of recovery has befuddled imperialist apologists and economists alike.  So-called “post-recession” recovery by industrialized countries like US, UK and Japan remains very weak, seemingly teetering on the brink of another recession despite spending hundreds of billions of dollars to bail out banking and other financial institutions and various efforts at pump priming to fund recovery. 

The creeping effect of this “non-recession” has not spread further to the economic heartland of Europe, as countries like France and Germany do not face the threat of recession.  On the other hand, many Eurozone countries such as Greece and Spain continue to bear the brunt of depression, as their sovereign debts crises remain unsolved and now threaten to infect even major industrial powers like Italy.

Journals August 2011 - The Rise of China and its Implications
Written by Fred Engst

(Partially presented at the ILPS 4th International Assembly in the Philippines on 9 July 2011)

  I would like to take this opportunity to address four related questions: First, can China rise to become a so-called “developed” country in the era of imperialism? Second, if it can, why can’t other Third World countries? Third, what does the rise of China mean for the people of China? And finally, what does the rise of China mean for the people of the world?
