Spain is a country of Suckers because our political leaders have become Suckers. They are no longer necessary and have become an extractive, fat and inefficient ruling elite. It is time to cut the fat and become lean.

Far from being just another distraction or way to be entertained by violence, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire delivers a message of hope into our culture which just like Panem desperately needs to find freedom from our own oppressions and injustices.

Not voting reinforces rather than defies corporate power structures. Distinguishing his "indifference and exhaustion" from apathy, Russell Brand suggests that abandoning our voices will silently (telepathically?) send a message for utopian change. Hardly.

Eventually, Assad or his sons must renounce power; history teaches that no repressive regime lasts forever. But how long until this family falls? How long until "might makes right" is replaced by morality, until the pen and law and human decency really do triumph over the sword?

You Can Fix the Health Care Reform Hullabaloo

David Katz, M.D.

Health isn't built in hospitals; disease is treated there. Health is built every day, over the course of a lifetime, in the places we work, and learn, and play, and pray, and love, and live. Or it isn't. And if it isn't, the "health care" system can't fix it.

"I'm not trying to sell pipe dreams to people. I'm not giving them some fake utopia. I'm not telling them it's easy. If it was easy, everyone would do it. But you don't fight the fights you can win, you fight the fights that need fighting, you know?"

We are, as everyone knows, enabled by technology, sometimes to the point of paralysis, which seems to be a contradiction. After all, technology allows me to work from anywhere in the world, as it does my colleagues. At the same time, technology betrays us.

James Zogby

It will not be easy to reconstitute the Syrian nation, to reconcile its people, and to heal the many wounds inflicted by this devastating war. But this, not revenge, must be the goal we seek -- for the sake of the region, for Syria and most especially for the Syrian people.
