Vaclav Havel: A Critical Evaluation

Vaclav Havel: A Critical Evaluation

The death of Vaclav Havel on December 18, 2011, last president of Czechoslovakia and first president of the Czech Republic, has brought accolades from media pundits and political and plutocratic luminaries for the role he played in the dismantling of the Soviet bloc. Given that the Warsaw Pact was the only geopolitical entity that constrained […]

Regional Globalization: The Trans-Pacific Partnership

Regional Globalization: The Trans-Pacific Partnership

The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) is an important part of the globalization process that has been decades in the making. The process was formalized on November 12, 2011. While a “Pacific community” similar to the “European Community,” has often been mooted by New Zealand and Australian politicians,[1] TPP creates the foundation for full-fledged regional governance.

Dr Joel Hayward in the Firing Line Again

In 1993, Joel Hayward completed an MA thesis on the literature of holocaust revisionism. Hayward was of Jewish descent, was a member of the New Zealand Friends of Israel, and a co-founder of Opposition to Anti-Semitism.

Geopolitical Realignments: USA-Israel-China versus Russia-Europe-Arabia

Geopolitical Realignments: USA-Israel-China versus Russia-Europe-Arabia

Despite the focus of the mass media on (mostly theoretical) rivalry between the USA and China, and the rapport in recent years between China and Russia through a Central Asian axis, neither of these apparent geopolitical alignments are historically or organically based. They are superficial and in particular obscure the behind-the-scenes diplomacy that takes place […]

Anders Breivik: Neo-Conned

In the midst of the Christchurch, New Zealand, earthquake in February 2011, a group of young Israelis, caught up in the destruction, made a quick exit back to their homeland, leaving three of their friends who had died.

Egypt and Tunisia: Plutocracy Won

Egypt and Tunisia: Plutocracy Won

It is no longer necessary to hypothesize about the purpose of the “velvet revolutions” in North Africa and adjacent states: they are already following the same path as those manufactured in the former Soviet bloc. Senators John McCain, Joe Lieberman, and John Kerry recently went to Tunisia and Egypt with a group of businessmen to […]

Thailand: “Red Power” or Money Power?

Thailand: “Red Power” or Money Power?

In the West, regimes are judged according to their proximity to parliamentary democracy, which in particular entails regular elections. No matter how sound a regime, how committed its leaders, or how prosperous and well-disposed its people; if there is not adherence to the rule of parliamentary electioneering, then that can be sufficient for a regime […]

Uzbekistan: An Outpost Against Globalization

Uzbekistan: An Outpost Against Globalization

There are few states remaining that have remained free from the international oligarchy. One of these is Uzbekistan, whose rejection of involvement with international financial institutions and maintenance of a sovereign currency has, despite economic problems such as hyper-inflation, enabled this state to stay secure from recent world financial turbulence. Since Uzbekistan remains a relatively […]
