“The Crisis Upon Us !”
28 November 2016
Dear Colleagues and Friends of CEIMSA,
Below you will find two items which speak to the future life of censorship that we are facing, if we are not vigilant and in solidarity with collective human and civil rights movements. “Divide and conquer” is the age-old name of the game being played against us today by corporations and their paid stooges.
As usual, we encourage the use of historical materialism and dialectical materialism as instruments of thought which can produce a more profound understanding of the moment we are living than is offered by the presently fashionable practice of empirical positivist thought and algorithms.
In the video below we hear Edward Snowden give a visionary description of how the War Against Terror was driven by concerns other than security and how it anticipated an escalation in the war against privacy, also being pursued for the benefit of corporate profits and not people.

And in the next article, by Norton and Greenwald in last week’s edition of “The Intercept,” we learn of the “Happy Warriors” now snipping at progressive critics in the US media, while receiving serious support from none other than the establishment Washington Post, in their new determination to build a new order and subjugate humanity to the designs of this order.
