    Binoy Kampmark: Ineffectual Boycotts: The Beijing Winter Olympics
    Making moral statements in the blood and gristle of international relations can often come across as feeble. In doing so, the maker serves the worst of all worlds: to reveal a false sense of assurance that something was done while serving no actual purpose other than to provoke. Anger, and impotence, follow... More>>

    Keith Rankin: Science, Scientists, And Scientism

    Globetrotter: Why Julian Assange’s Inhumane Prosecution Imperils Justice For Us All

    When I first saw Julian Assange in Belmarsh prison, in 2019, shortly after he had been dragged from his refuge in the Ecuadorean embassy, he said, “I think I am losing my mind.”
    He was gaunt and emaciated, his eyes hollow and the thinness of his arms was emphasized by a yellow identifying cloth tied around his left arm... More>>
