To the Point

An empty shell as president, a torturer running the secret government, Education run by a privileged amateur, and the EPA pivoted to environmental destruction for pay, I’d say America is actually sporting a government that is representative of the American government.--Upthepeople/CommonDreams

Consider This

David's Singh's father wrote to me about a recent anti-war essay he liked that I published at CounterPunch.

Read the website devoted to the legacy of his son, who committed suicide in 2016 rather than be conscripted into Singapore's national service.

The kid was 18, gay, an artist and a conscientious objector.  In Singapore, where every 18 year-old male must acquiesce to the mandate, there is little support for such lives of resistance.

I post this in solidarity with David Singh's father, family and friends.
