CounterCurrents: Staving Off The Coming Global Collapse




Dear Friend,

It is everybody's knowledge that we are heading for a global collapse. William Rees writes an insightful article "Staving Off The Coming Global Collapse"

The appalling genocide in Mosul generates strong words from Dr Gideon Polya. He writes "It is unlikely the George Bush, Tony Blair, John Howard, their associates and successors – notably war criminal Barack Obama and war criminal Donald Trump – will ever be arraigned before the racist, Iraqi  Genocide-ignoring and Iraqi Holocaust-ignoring International Criminal Court (ICC). What can decent people do? Decent, humane people around the world must (a) penetrate the Mainstream Media Wall of Silence and tell everyone they can about the ongoing, blood-for-oil  Iraqi Genocide, and (b)  urge and apply Boycotts, Divestment  and Sanctions (BDS) against all people, politicians, parties, companies, corporations and countries    complicit in the ongoing Iraqi Genocide and the ongoing Muslim Genocide."

China and Russia are building strong bonds. Dr Chandra Muzffar writes that it is a good news for the world. 

K. P Sasi's cartoons series continues.

Mosul Massacre Latest In Iraqi Genocide –  US Alliance War Crimes Demand ICC & BDS
by Dr Gideon Polya 


The Mosul Massacre is but the latest  in a Western-imposed  Iraqi Holocaust and Iraqi Genocide that has been ongoing since 1914 in oil-rich Iraq [1-9]. Leading UK Middle East journalist, Patrick Cockburn, reporting on the latest awful episode of the Iraqi Genocide in Mosul, stated (2017): “More than 40,000 civilians were killed in the devastating battle to retake Mosul from Isis, according to intelligence reports revealed exclusively to The Independent – a death toll far higher than previous estimates.





The Bilateral Relationship That Matters
by Dr Chandra Muzaffar


At the core of this new phase is another bilateral relationship which I regard as far more critical in shaping the present and the future. This is the relationship between China and Russia which is at its zenith at this point in time.





A US – Iran War
by Dr Arshad M Khan 


If Trump keeps up the pressure imposing further sanctions, how soon before the extremists in Iran secure an upper hand and the deal falls apart?  Could an unwinnable war (Iraq and Afghanistan are living examples) and/or a nuclear Iran be the consequence?




Neoliberalism And The Chicanery Of Victim-Blaming
by Nauman Sadiq 


The fundamental social axiom of the egalitarian modern world view: that is, the equality of opportunity, which is directly linked to the equality of elementary education, has been ensured in the developed world, but not in the Third World countries where education systems are highly stratified along the class lines.




Social Security –The 14th Amendment And “Odious Debt”
by Dr Nayvin Gordon


  For decades the working people have been paying millions more than was needed into Social Security and for years the excess money has been borrowed by the government.  Presently there is almost $3 trillion owed by the government to the Social Security Trust Fund.  The Republican Party now controls the government and has a budget plan that will give less than was promised to millions of people who have paid excess into Social Security for years
