NATO Craving Conflict, by Finian Cunningham

NATO is addicted to creating enemies because it needs to find a way to justify the spending of nearly $1,000 billion a year on military machines. That’s the combined spending on “defense” by the US and its NATO allies. That represents about 20 times what Russia spends and on its military and five times that of China.

The top 1% of households own 43% of global wealth, 10% owns 81%, while the bottom 50% have just 1%

The top 1% of households globally own 43% of all personal wealth while the bottom 50% have only 1%. The 1% are all millionaires in net wealth (after debt) and there are 52m of them. Within this 1%, there are 175,000 ultra-wealthy people with over $50m in net wealth – that’s a miniscule number of people (less than 0.1%) owning 25% of the world’s wealth!

Cultured meat has been approved for consumers for the first time

Cultured meat has been approved for consumers for the first time

Most cultured meat is made in a similar way. Cells are taken from an animal, often via a biopsy or from an established animal cell line. These cells are then fed a nutrient broth and placed in a bioreactor, where they multiply until there are enough to harvest for use in meatballs or nuggets. A slew of startups have been founded using variations on this approach, in the belief that cultured meat will appeal to flexitarians—people who want to reduce the amount of meat they eat for ethical or environmental reasons, but don’t want to give it up entirely.

Memphis Meats, which counts Bill Gates, Richard Branson, and traditional meat manufacturer Tyson Foods among its many investors, has teamed up with a number of other firms, including Just and cultured-seafood makers BlueNalu and Finless Foods, to form a lobbying group that is working with US regulators to get their products approved.

EU proposes fresh alliance with US in face of China challenge

EU proposes fresh alliance with US in face of China challenge

The paper says: “As open democratic societies and market economies, the EU and the US agree on the strategic challenge presented by China’s growing international assertiveness, even if we do not always agree on the best way to address this.”

The draft paper’s remark that the EU and the US “do not always agree” on how to deal with China is an acknowledgment of how the European bloc’s official three-pronged strategy of co-operation, competition and rivalry with Beijing is less hawkish than bipartisan policy in Washington.


The a priori bias of the Western media and the education system must be a depressing and debilitating experience. Imagine every facet of information being default-set to ‘dehumanise’ you from the perspective of your body’s skin-colour, height, hair-colour and face-shape, etc, with your culture and history deemed as being ‘evil’ and the product of ‘subhuman’ endeavour.




A new study has concluded that in September, 2019, the new coronavirus (Covid19) spread not from China – but rather from Italy (whereas the first recognised cases in China were identified in December, 2019). The (racist) Observer newspaper in the UK has suggested that this scientific research is a product of China attempting to ‘re-write history’ – but this is a straightforward and deliberate fabrication of the most ignorant type – as the data under discussion originates from within the West! (In this regard, Reuters (Deutsche Welle Chinese website) quoted a recent study from Italy as saying that the new coronavirus appeared in Italy earlier than first thought. The subjects in question were originally discovered through a lung cancer screening campaign. Since the discovering of this new Covid19 epidemic – there has been more questions about its origin (and infection process) identified as emerging between September 2019 to February 2020. As a result of these tests, antibodies to the SARS-CoV-2 virus were found in the (Italian) blood samples provided by the respondents from September 2019.
