We always get what we measure. And if we measure inequality with a yardstick that only wonks can decipher, we’ll end up with a society too confused about inequality to do anything meaningful about it. Thanks to Chilean economist Gabriel Palma, we do have an alternative. Inequality.org | News, Data & Statistics on Income, Health, Social Inequality

World War 4 Report | Deconstructing the War on Terrorism The View from Timbuktu from IRIN TIMBUKTU — Residents of Timbuktu, Mali's cultural capital, are hopeful the city can draw on its long history of tolerance to heal social relations frayed by a 10-month Islamist occupation, which Arab and Tuareg communities are still being accused of having abetted. In his book on the recent Islamist occupation of Timbuktu, La Ville Sainte dans les ténèbres du Jihadisme (The Holy City in the Darkness of Jihadism), senior government official Houday Ag Mohamed, a Tuareg, explains that successive insurgencies over the years led to a wave of discrimination and hostility against Tuareg and Arabs living in Mali. It is "an ostracism you can see in the looks full of hate and recrimination they receive," he said.

Dissident Voice Fight Stigma, Not the Stigmatized by David Connor / April 11th, 2014 Back in 1945, Dr. Walter Freeman struck out across America on a mission to save the mentally ill by selling his unique prescription door-to-door: transorbital lobotomy. Over his life, he executed some 2,900 of them. The scientific community latched onto his initial success with the procedure – which consisted of an ice pick inserted into the brain through the eye socket and stirred about – deeming it “soul saving”.

GlobalResearch.ca - Centre for Research on Globalization Chavez headed the lists of the CIA and the Pentagon as the main target of their attacks, and the US significantly expanded its military presence open and clandestine-around Venezuela during his administration. Western corporate media, its Oil and Gas counterparts (GCC) are once again attempting to bolster and rebrand the public image of the fundamentalist rebels in Syria. If there is anything the House of Saud knows well, it is rounding up Al Qaeda terrorists at the service of Washington. The House of Saud has also played a role in destabilizing the Russian Federation and organizing terrorist attacks inside Russia. The police hope to have drones able to fire “non-lethal weapons” at people they deem to be involved in criminal activity. Non-lethal weapons will soon become lethal weapons and the US will be trying and executing citizens at home as it has done elsewhere without even a hint of due process.

The much-hyped bipartisan Ryan-Murray budget “deal” struck late last year increases the national debt $6.4 trillion over the next ten years. It does nothing to change the trajectory of our growing debt at a time when it is among the greatest national security threats facing our nation. The “deal” also increases near term federal spending with a promise of future cuts (dubious) while raising taxes on airline passengers. Worse, it features a cut in pension benefits to current military members and veterans who earned those pensions in measures of blood and sweat. I voted against it. by Rep. Breitbart
