Hugh Gusterson of The George Washington University : "George W. Bush once said that he took the U.S. to war in Iraq so that we could fight “over there” and not at home. It is an attractive fantasy that, by using the military to intervene in the Middle East, we can corral the violence there. But we are learning that a connected world does not work that way. Intervention “over there” generates terrorist attacks by angry Muslims in the capitals of Europe and in nightclubs and office buildings in the U.S. And the soldiers we send “over there,” to the land of violence, bring the war back with them. Many of our mass killings at home are a haunted shadow of our interventions abroad. We need to probe that shadow more deeply."

“The horrific tendency of modern warfare is to depersonalize. Soldiers can use their weapons of mass destruction only because they have learned to conceptualize their victims not as individuals but as a category – the enemy. Robert Capa’s strategy was to repersonalize war – to emphasize that those who suffer the effects of war are individuals with whom the viewer of the photographs cannot help but identify.”

– Richard Whelan, “Robert Capa in Spain”, in Heart of Spain, published by Aperture.

Adam Johnson of Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting: "Like delusional middle-class parents convinced their drug dealer son is being corrupted by hip hop, Western media needs Russia to explain away its inability to keep its own house in order. In this case the U.S.’ own well-documented history of racism, xenophobia and chauvinism that, inevitably, vomited out the Trump spectacle. Blaming this entirely homegrown problem on Putin is an all-too-convenient trope and one that isn’t any less convincing when couched in ostensibly liberal, pro-Democratic Party trappings."

Trump is whichever villain the media wants him to be.

Oh, say do you remember 25 years ago,
They fought the fascist army, they fought the fascist foe?
Do you remember franco, hitler's old ally?
He butchered spain's democracy,half a million free men died.

Ai, ai, ai, ai--
Did you wonder why?
Did you ever pause and cry?

And don't forget the churches and the sad role that they played:
They crucified their people and worked the devil's trade;
But now the wounds are healing with the passing of time,
So we send them planes and rifles and recognize their crime.

Ai, ai, ai, ai--
Did you wonder why?
Did you ever pause and cry?

So spend your tourist dollars and turn your heads away.
Forget about the slaughter, it's the price we all must pay,
For now the world's in struggle, to win we all must bend:
So dim the light in freedom's soul: sleep well tonight, my friend.

Ai, ai, ai, ai--
Did you wonder why?
Did you ever pause and cry?

"This research project provides a sound and theoretically informed analysis of the various (or unison) media representations of the rise of Jeremy Corbyn as a candidate for the Labour leadership and of him as the new leader of the largest opposition party in the UK. Furthermore, this project also aims to make a contribution to the ongoing public debate regarding the role of mainstream media and of journalists in a media-saturated democracy.

We set out to recognise and acknowledge the legitimate role of the press to critique and challenge the powers that be, which is often encapsulated by the metaphor of the watchdog. Our systematic content analysis of a representative sample of newspaper articles published in 8 national newspapers between 1 September and 1 November 2015, however, shows that the press reacted in a highly transgressive manner to the new leader of the opposition, hence our reference to the attackdog metaphor.

Our analysis shows that Corbyn was thoroughly delegitimised as a political actor from the moment he became a prominent candidate and even more so after he was elected as party leader, with a strong mandate. This process of delegitimisation occurred in several ways: 1) through lack of or distortion of voice; 2) through ridicule, scorn and personal attacks; and 3) through association, mainly with terrorism.

All this raises, in our view, a number of pressing ethical questions regarding the role of the media in a democracy. Certainly, democracies need their media to challenge power and offer robust debate, but when this transgresses into an antagonism that undermines legitimate political voices that dare to contest the current status quo, then it is not democracy that is served."

"Empathy-washing initiatives create the false impression that the crisis is under control, with individual ingenuity, finally unlocked by privatised technologies, compensating for the rapidly deteriorating situation on the ground. And even if some of them do temporarily relieve the effects of the crises – against their causes, privatised technological solutions are impotent – they also entrench the power of technology platforms as indispensable intermediaries essential to the smooth administration of the post-crisis political landscape."

Dr. Cornel West: "This November, we need change. Yet we are tied in a choice between Donald J. Trump , who would be a neo-fascist catastrophe, and Hillary Clinton , a neo-liberal disaster. That’s why I am supporting Jill Stein. I am with her – the only progressive woman in the race – because we’ve got to get beyond this lock-jaw situation. I have a deep love for my brother Bernie Sanders, but I disagree with him on Hillary Clinton. I don’t think she would be an “outstanding president”. Her militarism makes the world a less safe place.
(...)
The American empire is in deep spiritual decline and cultural decay. The levels of wealth inequality and environmental degradation is grotesque. The correct response to this is: tell the truth about what is going on. Bear witness. Be willing to go to jail to fight for justice if need be.

Much-needed critical analysis of #NATOSummit, largely absent in Western media, by Adriel Kasonta (London-based editorial board member at the CEJISS - Central European Journal of International and Security Studies) & Richard Sakwa ( Professor of Russian and European Politics at the University of Kent)

"Despite repeated warnings that bringing NATO to Russia’s borders would be perceived as a strategic threat of the first order, the momentum of NATO enlargement continued. Even liberals such as Grigory Yavlinsky, the head of the social liberal Yabloko party, warned that it did not matter if the tank was painted pink and a flower stuck in its barrel, there was still a great hulking machine lumbering towards Russia’s front door. At the Bucharest NATO summit of 2-4 April 2008 Georgia and Ukraine were promised eventual membership. This was the turning point that demonstrated to Russia that it remained substantively an outsider to a European order that not only failed to incorporate its security interests but that in certain respects ran directly counter to them.

Although the language of equality figured prominently, care was taken to ensure that Russia did not become a veto player. Russia could be associated with the Atlantic community, but as a subaltern player in institutional and ideational terms. No Russian leader could accept enlargement on these terms, not Boris Yeltsin, not Vladimir Putin, and not any future leader – and it is a dangerous delusion of the Atlantic community if it believes that this sort of enlargement will be accepted by Putin’s successor."

I used to cut my hair there when I was a student at the LSE. They had a polish hairdresser, Sylvia, who was amazing. Nobody had ever been able to manage well my curls, and she did! One day, I went back and she was gone. I have tried calling them and sending e-mail, but they would never tell me how I can reach Sylvia. The place is not the same without Sylvia, the best hairdresser for curly hair I have ever seen. Please if anyone knows where she is working, let me know.
