How Are Donald Trump and the Cell Phone Alike?

Human Wrongs Watch

19 October 2019 (Wall Street International)*The non-United States of America is in dire need of replacing a “reality” president with a real president, one who is mentally, morally and physically strong and with enough intelligence to manage the complexity and stamina that the position requires. Such attributes as intelligence, mastery of knowledge, mental stability, honesty and courage matter, as we have learned too well in the last three years. Without this change, I doubt that the country can survive and certainly not as a world leader and a democracy.

Indigenous Peoples Protest in West Papua

Human Wrongs Watch

30 August 2019 (IGWIA)* “Monkey”, “pig”, “dog” – these words were shouted at a group of West Papuan students, who had been arrested and later released due to lack of evidence. They were accused of burning the Indonesian flag. This is the latest development in a more than 60-year struggle for the independence of West Papua.

It does not matter where on Earth the glaciers and mountain ice fields are located, they are all melting. Moreover, the projected timeframe for some of them to disappear altogether is ‘imminently’; that is, within years.

Abstraction and the Economy — Small Is Beautiful

Human Wrongs Watch

By Shantena Augusto Sabbadini*

August 2019 (Wall Street International)*  — What can we learn from the present ecological, economic, social crisis? I believe we need to revise some deep assumptions which are constitutive of our Western culture and through the process of globalization have become part of our world culture. We need to think in a new way, a new way that actually recovers (on a new level) a very old way.

10 August 2019 (Wall Street International)* — In 2007 a MIT survey revealed that nearly 60% of Americans feel that “until we are sure that global warming is really a problem, we should not take any steps that would have economic costs” or “its effects will be gradual, so we can deal with the problem gradually” (Sherman, 2007).

Monsters Walk the Earth. Why These Three Countries Are the Real Troika of Evil

Human Wrongs Watch

By Philip Giraldi | Strategic Culture Foundation – TRANSCEND Media Service*

Americans, Saudis and Israelis have become monsters in the eyes of the rest of the world even if in their own minds they are endowed with special privilege due to their being “Exceptional,” “Chosen by God” or “Guardians of Mecca and Medina.” All three countries share a dishonest sense of entitlement that supports the fiction that their oppressive and illegal behavior is somehow perfectly legitimate.
