Hollow Women Of The Hegemon Part II: Atrocity Enabling Harpies

Those who have crossed
With direct eyes, to death's other Kingdom
Remember us—if at all—not as lost
Violent souls, but only
As the hollow men
The stuffed men.
… This is the way the world ends
From, “The Hollow Men” by T.S. Eliot

By Dr. June Terpstra
This article is an update of the article I wrote in 2008 titled “Hollow Women of the Hegemon”.  It is about the hollow women, the stuffed women, who help the hollow men who are devoted to profit, power, plunder and pollution.  The word, hegemon, is used to identify the class, state or group with the most power that is responsible for the dissemination of dominant power group’s ideas, systems and practices that most benefit those in power and those who rule for them.  Since WWII the US government and it’s corporate elites reached the top position in the world.

Brexit Sideshow: Another False Choice

Distraction for further corporate traction
By William A. Cohn: All the noise around the Brexit referendum, once again shows the power of agenda setting in the corporate controlled mainstream media. The utility of the Brexit debate for corporatocracy is in distracting the public from its power to learn, organize and mobilize in exposing myth vs. reality.

Recently, we have seen free trade agreements exposed as enabling corporate lobbyists to subvert the public sphere standards on law, adjudication, and intergovernmental organization, skewing the relationship between the state, citizen, and corporation. WikiLeaks and the Panama Papers have empowered people to learn and act.

The media deluge on Brexit in recent weeks affords another case study of the smoke and mirrors agenda-setting and consent-manufacturing role of plutocracy. Once again, a false choice is presented so as to perplex and instill fear in the public. Stay the course or cut rope? Well, how about neither? How about something else, like building new institutions? How about organizing society from the bottom-up rather than the top-down?

Why I’m Sexist

By Travis Scott: For clarifications sake, it cannot be stressed enough this paper was not written for the promotion of misogyny. Many will have that reaction if only because of the title of this essay, and not read what I wrote. Regardless, it needs to be said that I do not hate women, and I am not aligned with philosophies considered ‘misogynistic.’ Neither am I making claims as to the ‘superiority’ or ‘inferiority’ of the sexes. For most of my life, I had defined myself as a feminist. I do not anymore because the position is no longer tenable. In contrast, I will be making the claim that I am sexist and that many people openly display sexist attitudes about others despite supposed ties to “non-sexist” ideologies.
I will be saying very sexist things in this essay. If you are the type with triggers and such, you have been warned. I will be candid, and I will make no apologies for what I write. By being sexist, I mean to say that I make judgments and interact with people differently based on their sex. This is not the same as reserving deep-seated hatred for the opposite sex. There is a difference between the two, and I believe they have been conflated by specific political groups to achieve certain ends. The sexes are certainly complimentary in nature, but they are not equivalent or the same. With this essay I am going to make plain what I believe are irreconcilable social norms and behaviors that go with the culture of “gender-equality” these groups have delivered us.

20 Congress Members Send Obama Letter Requesting Protection Of Palestinian Children From Jewish Abuses

Reps. Betty McCollum, Keith Ellison, Barbara Lee and more highlight Israel's systematic abuse of Palestinian kids
By Twenty Congress members have called on President Obama to take action to protect the rights of Palestinian children.
The lawmakers sent the president a letter on June 20, urging him to appoint a “special envoy for Palestinian youth” in order to monitor the Israeli government’s violation of Palestinian children’s human rights.
The letter (embedded below), notes that Palestinian children are “growing up under military occupation with very few opportunities to improve their lives.”
The letter describes the occupation as “an unimaginably difficult and at times hopeless environment,” where children “live under the constant fear of arrest detention and violence at the hands of the Israeli military.”
Israel’s illegal military occupation marked its 49th anniversary earlier this month. Nearly half, 46 percent, of the roughly 4.7 million Palestinians living in the Israeli-occupied territories are minors under 18 years of age.
The 20 lawmakers raised concerns about Israel’s frequent imprisonment of Palestinian children as young as 12, sometimes without charge or trial.

Horrible Feminist Is Angry Because You're A Pussy!

By Bearing: That's right - the fact that she can't get a man interested in her all comes down to the fact that men have turned into cowardly wimps who can't muster up the balls to make a move. - It's totally not because she's an arrogant, demanding, bossy, bitchy feminazi.
