While the focus might be on shadowy Russian forces subverting the internet, two more familiar companies are very noticeably clamping down on free speech.
As we watch Zimbabwe tear itself apart, our extended history indicates that the worse things get, the better the art we produce becomes.
As the US becomes more divided, will old battlelines be redrawn, pitting Americans against Americans as it was 150 years ago?
Welcome back to another week of your life that you won’t be getting back. But don’t think about that, North Korea has launched warheads over Japan.
Wednesday. The day where stuff happens. And happened it already has as North Korea moves closer to killing us, CNN succumbed to historical amnesia and a great Australian artist passed away.
Conspiracy theories exist largely because of mainstream media’s lies. So when that same media admonishes the theorists, it’s a case of the pot calling the kettle suspect.
According to The Washington Post, Trump has leaked sensitive material to the Russians, but our reaction to it makes me believe that we’ve learned nothing from history.
Monday. Think of it this way: soon you’ll be dead, and there’ll be no more morning angst. Solved! Macron. Trump. The Soviet Union. Yes, them again.

The people of Syria are victims not only of war but of mediocre diplomacy, producing, in its current form, only horrors of dictatorship and partition.
Morning! What happened while you were asleep? Well, it’s a classic Monday. Peace in Syria was pushed to the distance, South Korea are prepared to kill Kim Jong UN, and a baseball star was taken too soon. Brutal.
Oh, the week that was. Everything old is new again. Pauline Hanson, the Cold War and someone hitting the law where they don’t like it – in the stomach.
Morning! What happened with you were asleep? Well, two gladiators fought it out on social media, Russia won’t follow Peter Allen and Croatia popped on its flares.
Warm up your reading chair, for it’s that time again. Today we have tales of Cold War espionage, the realities of cancer treatment and a spotlight on child sexual abuse.
