Nice appreciation of News from Nowhere by Willam Morris' from @Culturesmatter. As EP Thompson famously commented: "Morris was a Marxist & a Utopian, but we must not allow either a hyphen or a sense of contradiction to enter between the two terms." https://mronline.org/2018/04/10/dreaming-of-communism-news-from-nowhere/

Intriguing article from @ISS_blog on financialization: "deep US trade deficits…arguably represent a new form of advanced capitalist imperialism, the emergence of a system of tributes whereby states around the world…subsidise US-centred capitalism." https://mronline.org/2018/04/10/the-imperial-intentions-of-trumps-trade-war-babble/

To the extent that there is a "recycling crisis," it is a crisis "of privatised waste management and recycling systems…. If you’re prepared to break with the 'logic' of the market," the problem could easily be resolved.

@ajitbirsingh provides an excellent summary of the geopolitical struggle between China & the US "As animosity increases, US rhetoric towards China calls to mind the virulent anti-communism of the Cold War & racist “yellow peril” phantoms of decades past" https://mronline.org/2018/04/09/chinas-rise-threatens-u-s-imperialism-not-american-people/

An anonymous analysis about collusion between the State Dept. & Bolivian mass media to defeat the 2016 referendum on term limits. Tactics mirror those used by #darkmoney PACs in the US, and were most likely pioneered in Latin America to begin with. From Mint Press News.

After a recent trip to Israel, "none of the 11 Democrats on the trip has spoken out against Israel’s actions." The groveling of U.S. politicians on Israel is truly revolting.
