The Following two articles are on pornography. There are shocking statistics and other information, in these articles, about how widespread it has become and how such a large number of people are addicted to it. The Internet is saturated with pornographic web sites, on which people are bombarded with images of every sexual act imaginable, as well as unimaginable. Continue reading
Introductory note by Fazal Rahman, Ph.D.
In this article, Professor Petras has exposed the collaborative role of various types of American academics and their counterparts in other countries, in promoting the interests, policies, and actions of imperialism and capitalism, and slandering, attacking, weakening, and corrupting the anti-imperialist academics, journalists, politicians, government officials, and others, internationally, under various guises. Such intellectual and spiritual prostitution in the service of imperialism is much worse than any physical prostitution. I have long been very skeptical and critical of the intellectual and spiritual integrity of academics in the US and other imperialist countries. Professor Petras’ article reinforces my own observations. Of course, there are exceptions, but we are talking about the overwhelming majority, the mainstream.
One wonders what such academics are breeding in their class rooms!

Some of the most horrible atrocities are being committed in the poorest country in the Middle East, Yemen, by the richest countries in that region, led by Saudi Arabia, with the support of and weapons, supplied mostly by the US and UK. Millions of Yemenis have been displaced; their infrastructures, houses, and means of living destroyed, and are facing widespread malnutrition and famine. It is one of the worst current multi-state terrorisms. It is happening in front of the whole world, which is doing nothing to stop it. Only Iran and some of its allies are opposing this assault by the Saudi led coalition, which is intoxicated with its wealth and American and Western weapons of destruction and delivery systems. However, being bogged down in Syria, where imperialists have created another Hell on Earth, they are unable to do anything effective against it. Yemen is a Muslim country and the colonialist and neo-colonialist atrocities against it are being committed by Saudi led Muslim coalition. These are even worse and more brutal than those committed by Israel in Gaza. Most Muslim countries are either silent or are actively collaborating with the Saudis, prostituted by the Saudi money. It is one more example of corruption of Islam by modern capitalism and imperialism. Christianity has been corrupted long time ago. In the Islamic World, there are contradictory processes and movements at work. While most Islamic states and governments are being corrupted and prostituted, there is diversity of reactions among the non-state organizations, with many resisting these powerfully, e.g., Taliban and their allies in Afghanistan and Pakistan, while others collaborating with these, e.g., religious establishments in Saudi Arabia, other Gulf monarchies, and many other Muslim countries.

If one thought that after numerous lies and fabrications by the American and European political leaders and media, during military attacks and invasions of various Third World countries, one had become resistant to being shocked by these, the elaborate constructions based upon lies and illusions, in case of the new missile attacks on Syria, certainly proves one wrong. Not only the lies and illusions, but clone-like collaboration with and repetition of these by supposedly highly educated and experienced politicians, media reporters and writers, and academics, jolt one’s mind to dizziness by seeing such transnational mass corruptibility and insanity. Continue reading

Excellent article by Professor James Petras, factual, logical, wise, and pessimistic about the sinister reality in the headquarters of the Devil’s Hell that this planet has been transformed into by the Homo dollarus of capitalism and imperialism. In spite of my efforts to recover my optimism in the good part of human nature and its potentials, the increasingly sinister reality counteracts these. Although the fears that Professor Petras talks about have been globalized, these have been created and radiated from this Center of the Devil’s Hell, the US of A. I am aware that there are many insightful and knowledgeable individuals here, who know what is going on and are doing whatever they can to build a movement against it. However, they are like small springs of fresh water, which the immense toxic ocean drowns into itself.

This is an excellent documentary, produced in the USSR in 1984, which documents some of the sinister capitalist-imperialist propaganda and various other techniques of brain-washing, mind-numbing-and-dumbing, animal and human experimentation, etc., by various institutions of American capitalism and imperialism, both domestically and internationally. Based upon diabolical applications of the discoveries of science and technology, and the research work of huge armies of psychologists and other scientists and technicians, such brain-washing has been globalized and is incomparably more effective in some areas, like advertising and mind-numbing-and-dumbing, than it was in Nazi Germany. It has been going on throughout the history of this country, and has been growing and becoming more effective. The election of a predatory, narcissistic, unstable, racist, and psychopathically militaristic oligarch, Donald Trump, to the presidency of a country that can unleash anthropocidal World War III, is the logical outcome of such mass psychology and culture, which in their turn are ultimately produced by the political economy of extremist imperialism, characteristic of US of A. Such mass psychology and culture can provide a fertile soil for the growth of fascism, under the right conditions. Continue reading
