For the west to refer to its self as civilised is delusional. In the face of economic and social crises, its humanity is missing in action.
I wrote this article on The Liverpool Way “If you go looking for problems lad, you’ll always find them.” A throwaway line by a Cabby on the way to the […]
Dylan's lyrics were profoundly poetic, but were they prophetic?
The question is not whether we can afford to implement Labour's programme, but rather can we afford not to.
The subversion of democracy, even when it seeks to damage those we disagree with, harms all of us.
Since when has dreaming of a better world been a crime? Life is painfully short and to devote your energies to anything other than imagining a better world, and striving to make it a reality, is a life wasted.
