The End

Juno Sara Alexandra, mijn kleindochter.

Mag ik u voorstellen aan:

Immanuel Maurice Wallerstein (New York, 28 september1930) een vooraanstaande Joods-Amerikaansesocioloog en andersglobalist. Hoewel aanvankelijk vooral bekend als expert op het gebied van Afrika, is zijn bekendste bijdrage aan de wetenschap de ontwikkeling van de wereld-systeemtheorie vanaf 1974. Van 1994 tot 1998 was Wallerstein voorzitter van de Internationale vereniging van sociologen. Hoewel sinds 1999 op emeritaat heeft hij nog verschillende eredoctoraten ontvangen, en een aanstelling als onderzoeker aan de universiteit van Yale.

Oke, geen geringe knaap dus, een intellectueel van wereldniveau, een niveau dat in Nederland niet bestaat. Wat heeft Wallerstein te melden? In de woorden van een al even intelligent mens, de Amerikaanse cultuurhistoricus Morris Berman:

'what is clear about our current situation, says Wallerstein, is that the current process of globalization…

The Neoliberal Religion 35

Big money goes around the world
Big money underground
Big money got a mighty voice
Big money make no sound
Big money pull a million strings
Big money hold the prize
Big money weave a mighty web
Big money draw the flies

Sometimes pushing people around
Sometimes pulling out the rug
Sometimes pushing all the buttons
Sometimes pulling out the plug
It's the power and the glory
It's a war in paradise
It's a Cinderella story
On a tumble of the dice

Big money goes around the world
Big money take a cruise
Big money leave a mighty wake
Big money leave a bruise
Big money make a million dreams
Big money spin big deals
Big money make a mighty head
Big money spin big wheels

Sometimes building ivory towers
Sometimes knocking castles down
Sometimes building you a stairway
Lock you underground
It's that old-time religion
It's the kingdom they would rule
It's the fool on television
Getting paid to play the fool

Big money goes around the world
Big money give and take
Big money do…

Bradley Manning and the stench of US hypocrisy

The US condemns human rights abuses abroad yet appears to be allowing
the psychological torture of Bradley Manning

Earlier this week, the soldier accused of leaking thousands of
confidential documents to WikiLeaks, Bradley Manning, was handed an
additional 22 charges as part of his ongoing court martial process.
The 23-year-old, who has been in solitary confinement for more than
seven months, stands accused of computer fraud, theft of public
records and willfully communicating classified information to a
person not entitled to receive it. He now also finds himself faced
with a rare charge known as "aiding the enemy" - a capital offence
for which he could face the death penalty.

The revelation will no doubt have come as a blow to Manning, although

Britain cherry-picks which war criminals to prosecute and where to impose no-fly zones
By Stuart Littlewood 5 March 2011

Stuart Littlewood highlights the incredible, blatant hypocrisy of the British government, foremost Prime Minister David Cameron and Foreign Secretary William Hague, who are applying one standard to the criminal Libyan regime of Mu’ammar Gaddafi while going out of their way to protect and justify the crimes of another criminal regime, that of Israel. ”Prime Minister David Cameron told MPs that he had asked the head of Britain's armed forces to work with allies to see if a military no-fly zone was possible.

“So if the answer is ‘yes’, there’s no reason not to impose a no-fly zone over Gaza, is there? Oops, I forgot. The maniacs doing the murdering there are Whitehall’s ‘friends’, right? And Hague and Cameron have publicly pledged undying support for them, right? So, their balls are in a vice, right?” (Stuart Littlewood) After maintaining a deafening silence about Israe…
