Caitlin Johnstone: End the Deep State with Unity for Integrity

Caitlin Johnstone

By Going After Assange, Trump Will Alienate The Alt-Right Forever

I may cringe at Steele’s language sometimes and he and I may never agree about Bernie Sanders being a sheepdog who sold out for a beach house, but I will proudly set aside our differences and fight the manipulations of the deep state by his side, because until the unelected power establishment is overthrown, our ideological differences are functionally irrelevant. Until election integrity is restored and the American people have a voice in what happens to their country that isn’t nullified and neutered by unelected oligarchs, the only fight that makes any sense is against those oligarchs, and if all anti-establishment factions come together and put everything they’ve got into that fight, we can win.

Left Vs. Right Is A Nonsensical Debate As Long As There’s A Deep State In America

So while trying to promote “unity”, the official leader of the Democratic party and the unofficial leader of the Democratic party together illustrated perfectly the only real political division existing in rank-and-file America today: those who pretend that America is a democracy wherein people get to use their votes to determine the direction in which their nation will move, and those who recognize that the most powerful nation in the world is in fact controlled by a few ruling elites who are not answerable to elected officials in any meaningful way.

Robert Heibel: EUROPOL Recommends Member States Increase OSINT Capacity

EUROPOL recommends Member States to increase their OSINT capacity to monitor social media and the use of technologies by terrorists

According to the last  Internet Organised Crime Threat Assessment (IOCTA) recently published by EUROPOL – the  European Union’s law enforcement agency – there is an increasing convergence between cybercrime and terrorism. Indeed, “Terrorists are becoming increasingly proficient in hiding their traces and activities by using anonymising and encryption tools and services » such as Tor available on the cybercrime market. Another trend highlighted by EUROPOL is the increasing use social media platforms by terrorist groups “to engage in recruitment campaigns, propaganda, incitement of terror acts and for claiming responsibility for attack”. In order to address these challenges, the EU law enforcement agency recommends Member States to “increase their OSINT capacity in order to monitor the development of new technologies that have potential for abuse by terrorists and which have already been adopted, and to proactively monitor social media to detect early patterns of radicalisation”.

What if…public libraries could anchor a platform cooperative?

Supporting the disrupted going forward….

We recently published our submission to the Libraries Taskforce consultation about its draft strategy – Libraries Deliver: An Ambition for Public Libraries in England 2016-21. Today, we want to say a bit more about our having called upon the Taskforce to explore the opportunities for public libraries that could flow from the growth of the ‘sharing economy’ and, in particular, moves to establish Platform Cooperatives.

An Open Letter to All European Ministers

Esteemed Ministers,

On 27 May the Competitiveness Council in Brussels announced a European decision to achieve Open Access to all scientific research data by 2020. This decision, and the implementing European framework programme for research and innovation Horizon 2020, will be recognized by future generations as the first serious step toward the creation of a prosperous world at peace. With this one decision Europe is turning away from centuries of war and waste; away from scientific reductionism, away from corporate ownership of public knowledge, away from legal barriers to innovation, and away from government neglect of the public interest.

Spain activists, whistleblower creating digital pay system

The French whistleblower and Spanish anti-corruption activists who triggered an investigation of a former International Monetary Fund chief announced Thursday they are designing a digital payment system aimed at excluding middlemen companies that make money from online purchases. Herve Falciani and the Xnet group say their nonprofit, peer-to-peer payment system would work like PayPal on a local basis within European cities for citizen payments to participating businesses and governments.

Can John Kasich Win by Championing Electoral Reform?

ROBERT STEELE: Please consider reading the essay with 27 endnotes at LinkedIn, where I would be most appreciative of internal likes and external shares. I am agnostic about who might win — my focus is on electoral reform — but I do earnestly believe that John Kasich is the only totally ethical and broadly intelligent adult running. The essay offers a specific idea for his winning the Republican nomination by working with Governor Abbott of Texas to sponsor a virtual (non-binding) Constitutional Convention that would energize all of us, and other ideas that he can use to destroy the three Senators now running, and reach agreement with Joe Biden on the need — prior to the summer recess — for an Electoral Reform Act of 2016 that enables the election of Constitution, Green, and Libertarian Members as well as Independents.

Tom Atlee: How Tunisia Imagined Its Future

Design, Politics

What’s this message is about: Within a month of toppling its dictator, Tunisia’s 2011 Arab Spring revolution was bogged down with a struggling transition government and a countrywide general strike. An ad agency that identified with the revolution (and needed the country to get back to work in order to sell its clients’ products!) decided to get all of Tunisia vividly imagining a better future. They convinced six brands and five major Tunisian media to spend one day together carrying nothing but stories as if it were three years later and Tunisia had become a prosperous, modern, democratic country. By the evening of that day people all over the country were imagining and debating the destiny of Tunisia on Twitter, on a special website, and in streets, homes, and media across the land. Suddenly returning to work became a revolutionary act. This post explores the implications of that remarkable event for the rest of us, and for democracy itself.

Imagine a country imagining its future together. It did!

The Linux Approach to Human and Eco-System Well Being

Democracies are in dire need of an upgrade to deal with social complexity

Current versions of democracy are a bit like the DOS operating system in the 1980s. In the best cases, they may hold the promise of a more user-friendly Windows beaconing on the horizon. But forget about a participatory, interactive Linux system. Our democracies have bugs, lack user-friendly features and under-perform. Above all, they are in need of major upgrades.

Kosmos: People Power Against Inequality

P2P / Panarchy, Politics, Resilience

kosmos logoPeople Power – What Progress on Fighting Inequality Would Look Like

Movements overcome injustices not just by bearing witness to the wrongs of the time, but by enabling people to envision a better future.

Most importantly, activists are saying that progress in the fight against inequality would look like a strengthening of the power of ordinary people – more people finding support in community groups and trade unions, a stronger voice for people in decisions that affect them. This is partly because the scale of change entailed can only come about through pressure from below – it is the only way it ever has. And because any change would be either inadequately followed through, or be too easily reversible, unless people power hold governments to account.
