Noam Chomsky on French Intellectual Culture & Post-Modernism

I obviously haven’t been posting much lately. Not sure when or whether I will resume frequent posting. But I’ll use this as a place for things that really grab my attention.

The Torture Report: What the Documents Say About America’s Post-9/11 Torture Program

An important forthcoming book The Torture Report: What the Documents Say About America’s Post-9/11 Torture Program described by the author:

The “war on terror,” brought to light by Freedom of Information Act litigation. As the lead author of the ACLU’s report on these documents, Larry Siems is in a unique position to chronicle who did what, to whom and when.

Divided into three sections, The Torture Report presents a stunning array of eyewitness and first-person reports—by victims, perpetrators, dissenters, and investigators—of the CIA’s White House-orchestrated interrogations in illegal, secret prisons around the world; the Pentagon’s “special projects,” in Guantánamo Bay, Cuba; plots real and imagined, and much more.

Occupy Livestream staff arrested

Word comes that the NYPD has arrested those in the GlobalRevolution headquarters responsible for providing live feeds of Occupy events. Thyis action is not that surprising. After the encampments were crushed in most major cities around the country, the powers that be will likely move to destroy the infrastructure that supported the movement to prevent future protests. As the reaction to the Occupy protests demonstrated, free speech by dissidents is only tolerated when it is ineffective.
