[T]he systematic anti-Hamas propaganda engineered by some Palestinian trends does not specifically target Hamas as an organization. It in fact targets the concept of resistance itself, as a practice, an idea, a consciousness. The alternative on offer is not resistance through different tactics.

Look at the survival struggle in Detroit under a corporate police state, which denies water to people, because that is what we will all get in years to come if we do not fightback now.

If [Hillary] Clinton wants to tell a better American story and have people to come to a consensus about who we are, she has to tell the story straight and then explain how we can best try to live up to our higher ideals in the future. Constantly telling ourselves a bunch of fairy tales about how great we are has painted us into a corner in which the worst elements of our leadership can rationalize any behavior —- including torture and indefinite detention in prison camps —- and nobody is willing to hold them accountable for it. The funny thing is that the old idea that the monarch was infallible and ordained by God is exactly what the American revolutionaries were rebelling against. I’m going to guess they didn’t anticipate that we would imbue our new country as a whole with the same nonsense.
