Why Iceland is Not in the News Anymore [by Deena Stryker , originally published in OtherJones ] An Italian radio program’s story about Iceland’s on-going revolution is a stunning example of how little our media tells us about the rest of the world.

At the very least, the hideous murder-spree of Anders Behring Breivik has highlighted just how strange and foreign much of Europe can still appear to Anglosphere eyes — even in this late age of globalization. The dozens of victims of Utoya island, for example, were not only gunned down in a mysterious place most of us have never heard of, but were participating in a political party “youth camp,” which, though common in European societies, have no real equivalent in North America. In the wake of this site’s recent debates over language, it was similarly somewhat jarring to note just how effortlessly bilingual the killer apparently is, a reflection of a growing European understanding that one’s native tongue is essentially reserved for the private and familial, while anything public or important — even murder manifestos — are best done in English.

"You're Either With Us or Against Us" Ever since George W. Bush reduced one of the most complex era-defining issues of the day into a glib distillation of two sides, things have taken a bizarre turn for the worse. Suddenly we live in a world of black-and-white.
Emma Goldman, Anarchism and Other Essays (Third revised edition, New York: Mother Earth Publishing Association, 1917) Ever reviled, accursed, ne'er understood, Thou art the grisly terror of our age.

Certainly, a boring, confusing, or otherwise annoying movie can be made much more interesting in my opinion by describing why some of the annoying conventions exist, rather than simply looking at them as blemishes on the movie. In addition, this often allows Sailer to bring out facts about human nature and to connect everything to everything else, allowing for some beautiful explicatory analogies. Another of Mr.
This classic statement of anarchism was written by a diverse group of anarchists in Cardiff around 1980 and it is an interesting historical record of the optimism of mainstream anarchist thought at that time.Terry Phillips There is probably more rubbish talked about anarchism than any other political idea. Actually, it has nothing to do with a belief in chaos, death and destruction. Anarchists do not normally carry bombs, nor do they ascribe any virtue to beating up old ladies. It is no accident that the sinister image of the mad anarchist is so accepted. The State, the press and all the assorted authoritarian types, use every means at their disposal to present anarchy as an unthinkable state of carnage and chaos.
