Kelley Vlahos with a terrific article on the horrible, sick Orwellian nightmare that China is right now.
Jason Ditz on Donald Trump not wanting the Khashoggi murder investigated because it would jeopardize hundreds of billions of dollars in Saudi arms sales. How sick is that? I’m sure the merchants of death are pleased, United Technologies Raytheon Northrowup Grumman Dynamics, etc., etc., etc.
Liam Glen says the media echo chamber is silent on the Saudi war on Yemen.
And Eli Clifton writes about the $259 million reason to bomb bomb bomb, bomb bomb Iran (as John McWarmonger would say): Sheldon Adelson et al. (More sick, these people.)
Jacob Sullum on why drug interdiction is doomed to failure.
Stephen Kinzer on who’s responsible for the border crisis. (He says the United States, but really it’s more specifically the U.S. government. Those idiots.)
And Charles Burris has an interesting post on art imitating hard historical reality.
