Sally Dugman's article "Where Should Be Limits In Medical Intervention?" is perhaps the most difficult article I had to post. I posted it because it raises some fundamental questions. You can agree or disagree.
Dr Gideon Polya raises the important issue of 10 billion deaths in a near-terminal Climate Genocide from burning fossil fuels.
Hadiya, a Hindu girl who became muslim and then married a muslim groom has become a national issue now. The High Court of Kerala annulled the marriage alleging forced conversion. The supreme court of India has orderd a probe into the terrorism angle into the marriage. Syed Ali Mujtaba raises the question, is marriage really an act of terrorism?
K.P Sasi's cartoon looks at corporatism, patenting and the commons.

Israeli-Palestinian & Middle East Conflict – From Oil To Climate Genocide
by Dr Gideon Polya
The 100 year Middle East conflict including the genocidal Zionist colonization of Palestine has been about Anglo-American desire for hegemony and control of oil. However the horrendous deaths from the now global US War on Muslims may be dwarfed by a predicted 10 billion deaths in a near-terminal Climate Genocide from burning fossil fuels. Boycotts, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) against Apartheid Israel, its supporters, US Alliance war criminals and terracidal climate criminals are our last hope to stop this War on Humanity.

Racism rules the headlines these days. [Pause.] One cannot put an end to racism if one is engaged in bombing, sanctioning, starving or immiserating people of color overseas routinely. Oh yes, the U.S. Military is, arguably, also the greatest single polluter on the planet.
There’s Blood On Your Hands, Mr Trump!
by Taj Hashmi
Although I had no illusions about Trump being peace loving, just a harmless idiot, and an apolitical demagogue having no political agendas – as Obama misread him – I write this to point out that not Kim Jong-un but Donald Trump is posing the biggest security threat to the world, and to his own country.

The consumers will come into the formal financial sector and embrace the new opportunities believing that if they change their behavior and exert the effort to get into the new world then certain specific pains will disappear. We have thus to address real pains, not just offer benefits.
