Class War Battlefield Podcast: Episode 2018.04. Assessing the Planning Capabilities of the Higher Class, Segment 1

14 hours 56 minutes ago
Let us imagine for a moment, you are a student in a class or more appropriately, a school lasting for 10 years. Each year represents a specific stage in the evolutionary process of not only yourself but the functioning of the school. You, along with 10 others are selected to “manage” the school for the rest of the students. How are you selected – by birthright. Most students don’t know your name but still revere you and see you as Godlike because your power over them. You inherit the school from your parents who didn’t necessarily take care of it, embroiling it in various conflicts with other schools, letting its structures sag and deteriorate all while penalizing the students who attended and worked there with heavier taxes while all the while decreasing the services and classes available to them. When you inherit the school, sort of, your parents are still there, guiding you and watching over your shoulders, you inherit a fiscal mess and social decay. Not wanting to partways with their stolen, (my mistake) plundered and looted riches; your parents advise you to “stay the coarse” which you do, yet soon after your ascendence, the public doesn’t stay theirs, a moment your parents admit they were ready for. They hand you the keys to a massive surveillance apparatus, a machine you instantly use only to find it makes things worse – what would you do. The planning machine is broken, the elites fear what is to come, with fear comes over reaction.

1 day 12 hours ago
This talk explains the origins of the Doctorine of Discovery. This is the legal basis that was used to justify the theft of non Christian people’s lands by the authorization of the Pope. This doctrine is called a Papal Bull. Spanish Sovereigns agreed to finance Christopher Columbus but how would they finance the trip? In 1492 they were able to overwhelm the last Muslim community in Grenada and expropriate their property. Also they decided to expel the Jews. While Columbus was in a port in Western Spain getting ready to make his trip to the Americas literally next to him are ships full of Jews whose property has like the Muslims been taken by the crown and they use that wealth stolen from these people in order to finance his trip.

This Week In Palestine: Mazin Qumsiyeh on “Mayhem vs. Sanity in Western Asia…Why Palestine is still the issue”, Segment 1

1 day 23 hours ago
This week our Palestinian voice is that of our old friend Professor Mazin Qumsiyeh, who never fails to challenge us with the depth of his political analysis. Today we feature Mazin speaking to the Jerusalem Fund in Washington, DC on May 22, 2018. His subject: “Mayhem vs. Sanity in Western Asia…Why Palestine is still the issue.” In this extraordinarily wide-ranging speech, Mazin observes that almost every nation in the world is a colonizer or colonized, depending on whether it has nuclear weapons. He views the entire 8000-year history of homo sapiens as a mere click away from ending. This is neither the first nor the last time you'll hear Mazin's wisdom on This Week In Palestine. Mazin is an MD geneticist who taught at Duke and Yale Universities before returning to his home in Beit Sahour, Palestine where he continues to teach at Bethlehem University and Birzeit University. He is also the founder and director of the growing Museum of Natural History at Bethlehem University. It's clearly a labor of love, for which he accepts no pay.
