Save the BBC – But for What?

#633 | Prof. Jake Lynch – TRANSCEND Media Service

Among the most significant challenges of political reporting today is the rise of the so-called ‘alt-right’, led by demagogues who specialise in evidence-averse rabble-rousing, notably on issues of race and immigration. A classic BBC kerfuffle followed the call by President Trump last year for members of the so-called ‘squad’ – four left-wing Democratic Congresswomen of colour – to “go back to the places from which they came”. Three of the four were born in the USA. But it was clearly not Trump’s intention to appeal for Rashida Tlaib to return from Washington to Detroit, or Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to the Bronx.

FEATURED RESEARCH PAPER

Messianic Zionism – The Ass and the Red Heifer

Moshé Machover | Monthly Review – TRANSCEND Media Service

1 Feb 2020 - The relation between Zionism and Judaism (the Jewish religion) is paradoxical and complex. In its early days, Zionism was apparently a thoroughly secular political movement. Apparently. In reality, while its ego was secular, its id has always been religious. And in recent times, the latter has emerged from its hidden recess and is parading in full view. A form of religious Zionism has gained influence in Israel, which shares with militant Christian evangelism and Islamic jihadism the character of political movement with fundamentalist religious ideology.

Inspiration from a Father: Johan Galtung Interviewed by Henrik Urdal

Henrik Urdal | PRIO - TRANSCEND Media Service

"When [Gandhi] was shot on 30th January 1948, I found myself crying – much to my puzzlement and dismay. I was 17 and 17-year-olds don’t cry. And a boy to boot. And it wasn’t a habit of mine to cry. Somehow or other, Gandhi’s message had affected me so deeply that I reacted in this unexpected way."

Why Inequality Could Spread COVID-19

Joseph Stiglitz et al. | The Lancet - TRANSCEND Media Service

2 Apr 2020 - Pandemics rarely affect all people in a uniform way. The Black Death in the 14th century reduced the global population by a third, with the highest number of deaths among the poorest. As these populations are more likely to have chronic conditions, this puts them at higher risk of COVID-19-associated mortality. Since the pandemic has perpetuated an economic crisis, unemployment rates will rise substantially and weakened welfare safety nets further threaten health and social insecurity.

1918 Pandemic (H1N1 virus)

The 1918 influenza pandemic was the most severe pandemic in recent history. It was caused by an H1N1 virus with genes of avian origin and spread worldwide during 1918-1919. It is estimated that about 500 million people or one-third of the world’s population became infected with this virus. The number of deaths was estimated to be at least 50 million worldwide.

Coronavirus: Once You Have Antibodies, Are You Safe?

Connor Bamford | The Conversation - TRANSCEND Media Service

31 Mar 2020 - As more and more people get infected, survive and build up antibodies and T cells against SARS-CoV-2, we may eventually reach a threshold where we achieve “herd immunity”. This refers to the phenomenon where not everyone is immune, but because most people in the population are, the chances that those non-immune susceptible people catch a disease is very small.

Given widespread urgent calls for a "Global Plan" in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the argument first challenges the appropriateness of any "plan" in a global context. This is contrasted with the so-called doughnut model which has been presented as appropriate to ensuring a safe operating space for humanity.

Establishing public trust and informational reliability become paramount goals, and WHO and Tedros Adhanan Grebreyerus, its Director General, have risen to the occasion, gaining media credibility and worldwide respect.

Beyond Chutzpah: US Charges Venezuela with Narco-Terrorism

Roger D. Harris – TRANSCEND Media Service

According to the parable, the ungrateful son takes out a life insurance policy on his parents, murders them to collect, and is caught and found guilty. At his sentencing, the judge asks if he has anything to say on his behalf. The son replies: “Have mercy upon me because I am an orphan.” That’s chutzpah. US Attorney General Barr’s indictments on March 26 against the government of Venezuela for narco-terrorism go beyond chutzpah.

The Corona – An Opportunity to Replace Militarist Security with Common and Human Security (Part 1)

2 Apr 2020 - Governments have spent trillions on preparing for military threats created by their own policies. No one prioritised human and societal security. The unique over-reaction to COVID-19 should worry us much more than the virus itself. It can be seen as a panicky attempt to cover-up the failure of an outdated militarist security policy.

Ten years ago today, Julian Assange/WikiLeaks released a classified US military video depicting the indiscriminate slaying of over a dozen people in Iraq including two Reuters journalists, and injuring small children. It was called Collateral Murder. The killers in the video are running free whereas Julian Assange, the publisher revealing the crime, has been politically persecuted and arrested on 12 Apr 2019 after being holed up at the Ecuadoran Embassy since 2012. Now he is under pre-trial detention at a high-security prison in London, threatened by extradition to the US, and highly vulnerable to the Coronavirus, after his humanitarian bail request was rejected.

Bigger Brother

Tim Wu | The New York Review of Books - TRANSCEND Media Service

9 Apr 2020 Issue - What we have learned, what Skinner and secret police alike have realized, is this: to know everything about someone is to create the power to control that person. We may not be there yet, but there is a theoretical point—call it the Skinnerlarity—where enough data will be gathered about humanity to predict, with some reasonable reliability, what everyone on earth will do at any moment. That accomplishment would change the very structure of experience. As the legal scholar Jonathan Zittrain has said, it would make life “a highly realistic but completely tailored video game where nothing happens by chance.”

The principal founder of peace and conflict studies, Johan Galtung, predicted in his 2009 book 'The Fall of the US Empire-And Then What?' that the US empire will decline and fall by 2020. According to Galtung, it is due to USA expanding hegemon that has driven it to exploit and suppress other countries.
