Best Article of the Year, (so far)

The 4 Plagues:  Getting a Handle on the Coming Apocalypse
by Don Hazen - June 4, 2013


“Every day, thousands, probably millions of people ask their family, friends, neighbors and colleagues similar and increasingly familiar questions:  What has happened to our country?  How did we get here?  Isn’t it scary?  Can anything be done about it?

In an environment of confusion and despair, it can be helpful to name the beast—essentially to understand the forces at play, how they operate, and why they feel both intractable and overwhelming.  So, what follows is a kind of Users’ Guide To What Is Freaking Us Out.”

As always with Alternet.org, this article is a damn good read,
and an excellent perspective of our shared Pax Americana reality.

Have you noticed how many articles I link from Alternet.org/Truthout.org
It's because they do an excellent job of allowing truth to be authority,
rather than like FOX, where authority is manipulatively displayed as truth.

And like Commondreams, Crooks & Liars, DemocracyNow!, et al, the "Comments" section
is quite often as enlightening as the article’s themselves, sometimes even more so.
