  10. I like Stephen Cohen. He is sensible, scholarly and mature. That Democracy Now clip was taken out of its much broader context ~ a long exchange between Joe Cirincione and Glenn Greenwald; well worth hearing by the way, as Glenn G’s fluent response was entirely apt and proportionate.

    I’ve just listened to a rather bellicose Steve Bannon on the Helsinki meeting. All very “interesting.” I don’t agree with him, but his reactionary (Opus Dei, according to Paul Jay) personality and political psychology need to be carefully understood…. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G70NhmvufRM

    Paul Jay is very astute in my estimation.

    So far as Crimea being essentially Russian is concerned, that’s a (strategic) no-brainer in my opinion. So even Kissinger can be right about some things!

    Parasitical capitalism, decay, climate….exactly. Where is the authentic vision….creative “intelligence?” I mean we’re talking about the destiny of all Earth-life. “DNI” Mr Coats seems like a cock-eyed paranoiac, not a genuinely wise homo saps…..! Woe is me, don’t we deserve something better?
