in the news but few are explained. Little is said about how the
social order is organized and for what purposes. Instead we are
left to see the world as do mainstream pundits, as a scatter of
events and personalities propelled by happenstance, circumstance,
confused intentions, bungled operations, and individual ambitions
- rarely by powerful class interests."

"In recent years a high-quality,
reader-funded journalism has emerged on the internet, often outperforming
traditional media in terms of critical reporting. Some of these

a politically safe posture. By focusing on crime, attention is
effectively directed away from more divisive issues on which a
politician might have to take a stand that would cost them votes.
Meanwhile, a fearful populace continues to surrender their civil
rights and constitutional protections at an alarming rate, so
that their government may protect them from the rampant criminality
of the masses."
