Dearest Politicians

28 Jan , 2012 Uncategorized

I understand you have a country to run, and I understand the Netherlands are succumbing to a global crisis, largely caused by systemic reasons not directly attributable to policies or wrongs enacted by anyone locally.

The Rise of the Praetorian Class

18 Jan , 2012 Uncategorized

By Pete Kofod Much attention has been paid to the “disappearing middle class” and the “vanishing American Dream.” While the observations are largely accurate, they are also misleading. The traditional three-tier model of the upper, middle and lower class broadly categorizes people according to income and net worth. One significant problem with this model is […]

Would it be possible to start an institute that starts an exhaustive listing of people that may have committed war crimes, not exempting American nationals, and working to identify US (or other) civilians, soldiers, officers, politicians, corporates, henchmen and mercenaries – and then (a) collect information on the crimes of the person, start a dossier […]
