Hopebroken and Hopesick:

A Lexicon of Disappointment

By Naomi Klein

All is not well in Obamafanland. It's not clear exactly
what accounts for the change of mood. Maybe it
was the rancid smell emanating from Treasury's

chief economic adviser, Larry Summers, earned
millions from the very Wall Street banks and hedge
funds he is protecting from reregulation now. Or
perhaps it began earlier, with Obama's silence
during Israel's Gaza attack. Continue

How Freedom Was Lost

By Paul Craig Roberts

Americans no longer know what freedom is.
Historically, the definition of a free person is
one who owns his own labor. Serfs and slaves
were not free, because they do not own all of
their own labor. An income tax is inconsistent
with the historical definition of freedom. Today
in America government has a claim on every
person’s labor, just as feudal lords, the government
of that time, had claims on the labor of serfs and
nineteenth century plantation owners had on slaves.
