CounterCurrents: Do governments lie?




Dear Friend,

Do our government tell truth? Do they lie? Ugo Bardi delves into the matter form a couple of historical examples. 

Alok Mukherjee writes, "Corbyn’s adoption of Shelley’s poem for his campaign slogan raises an important question about the real-life relevance of teaching literature at a time when the focus is on scientific and technical education and a devaluation of the humanities. The justification seems to be the one that Margaret Thatcher invoked when she said, “philosophy does not grow cabbages.”

K.P Sasi's #IndiaNow! Cartoon series continues. Today's cartoon focuses on the betrayal of people in the name of mega developmental projects.

by Iqbal Alimohamed

Mutual trust within the US-European geographical mix will then automatically pave the way forward to resolution of the Middle East conundrum. ”





The North Korean Dilemma Part II : Economic Ties And The Banyan Tree
by Dr Arshad M Khan


In due course the vast economic canopy will ensure mutual prosperity, and prosperity is addictive. Inevitably it opens the doors to reunification. The sad history of a divided Korea, prey to global forces and fractures beyond anyone’s control will have come to an end.

The Importance of Being a Cow: A Mother or a Meal?
by Amrita Datta 


The cow epitomizes the pangs of a society caught in a socio-economic imbalance where the Society has lost pace to the Economy. India is a classical example of hedonistic economic ‘reforms’ with little foresight of social adaptability of that reform in which the cow dominates humans as evolution goes back in track!




Thermal Power Projects – Growth, Environment And Livelihoods
by Atul Nigam 


It is necessary to think back on whether what benefits the economy really turns out to be beneficial to people who reside near such projects. While such projects take away clean air, land, water from people’s lives and their livelihoods in the name of economic growth, what happens to the affected communities in the long run?
