"I don't believe in heroes or saviours," says Alexis Tsipras, "but I do believe in fighting for rights … no one has the right to reduce a proud people to such a state of wretchedness and indignity."

By Tom Over--- Perhaps I’m an old guy looking down on a younger generation of folk seeking social change, but most of the self-described anarchists I’ve engaged with are–in my humble opinion–actually something else. ‘Nihilism’ might be closer to the truth than ‘anarchism’ when it comes to their worldviews, though still not quite on the mark.
By Tom Over --------- Let’s look for systemic solutions, not see individuals or humans in general as the problem. Some critics of the ecology movement, which includes animal rights, view it as anti-human. Positions of some activists, whether intentional or not, have fed into that.

I hung out for a couple of hours at the Re-Imagine OSU event yesterday, Wednesday May 16, 2012 from about 11:30am - 1:30pm or so. This isn't comprehensive coverage of what happened. Rather, it's more of an eye-witness report to be added to a more comprehensive article if needed.

On May 16th and 17th the OSU community is going to let the trustee board know that we want an Ohio State where the voices of students, faculty, and staff are respected, and are given a vote on issues that impact our lives.
Brazil: great President, Congress bad.
While Dilma Roussef hits each day more, "pulling" the leveling of interest of the Brazilian public debt to international levels and begins to devise an industrial policy firmly grounded in a serious exchange rate policy and in science and technology, in addition to important tax cuts, Congress is the scene of successive corruption scandals, all them originated in the corporate funding of campaigns and in "not very corporate" funding of campaigns, and approves, with a rapporteur funded by the agro-business, apocalyptic Forest Code: A million square KM to the devastation.
