“Orthorexia nervosa is a label designated to those who are concerned about eating healthy. Characterized by disordered eating fueled by a desire for “clean” or “healthy” foods, those diagnosed with the condition are overly pre-occupied with the nutritional makeup of what they eat”.
In short, if you turn your back on low quality, corporate food containing known cancer causing toxic additives and a rich history of dishonesty rooted in a continuous “profits over people” modus operandi, then you may suffer from a mental illness. The cherry on top is that if you have the pseudo-science labeled disorder of orthorexia nervosa, you will be prescribed known toxic, pharmaceutical drugs from some of the same conglomerate corporations that you are trying to avoid by eating healthy in the first place.
A council of Native American leaders has offered partial amnesty to the estimated 220 million illegal white immigrants living in the United States.
At a meeting of the Native Peoples Council (NPC) in Albuquerque, New Mexico yesterday, Native American leaders considered several proposals on the future of this continent’s large, unauthorized European population. The elders ultimately decided to extend a pathway to citizenship for those without criminal backgrounds.
“We are prepared to offer White people the option of staying on this continent legally and applying for citizenship,” explains Chief Wamsutta of the Wampanoag nation. “In return, they must pay any outstanding taxes and give back the land stolen from our ancestors.”
Neoliberalism is “the ideology of corporate domination and the plunder of finance capital.” To preserve itself domestically, the modern system has created both the Mass Black Incarceration State and the National Security State. Internationally, “terrorism, ‘humanitarian intervention,’ and economic sabotage are the primary means of maintaining US hegemony of the neo-liberal variety.”
February is Black History Month. During the month, the historical struggle for Black self-determination is whitewashed, distorted, and packaged to fit the needs of the US imperialist empire. The concept of neo-liberalism rarely garners attention in dominant narratives of Black history. Yet, neo-liberal policy has largely determined the conditions of Black life in the US for almost four decades. In this study, neo-liberalism is examined in preparation for the “Get to Freedom Organize” Conference at Skidmore College. At the conference, I will discuss the roots of neo-liberalism in the context of white supremacy and capitalist development. This article concludes with the often overlooked connection between neo-liberal capitalist economics and the imperial warfare state.

After teasing us with a single shot on Instagram earlier this morning (GMT time), Banksy finally revealed the location of the first piece which is Gaza in Palestine. Inspired by “The Thinker” by Rodin the first piece is entitled “Bomb Damage” and obviously with Banksy, the placement is just on point.
On top of that, the elusive British street artist took the opportunity to reveal four new pieces which you will be able to find around Gaza.
Two quotes were enclosed with the images of the new stenciled pieces:
Gaza is often described as ‘the world’s largest open air prison’ because no-one is allowed to enter or leave. But that seems a bit unfair to prisons – they don’t have their electricity and drinking water cut off randomly almost everyday. — Banksy
A local man came up and said ‘Please – what does this mean?’ I…

The blog The Art of Deviance published a heavily edited extract from the video interview between Claire Parnet and Gilles Deleuze, l’Abécédaire de Gilles Deleuze. The extract concerned the letter “J” for “Joy”. I have translated this more extensive extract:
Note: this extract is still incomplete as it is missing a long digression on Nietzsche and his concept of the priest, and also on the plaint or lament as an example of taking on something that is too powerful for me and that can make me crack. One can get a good idea of the missing part here, thanks to Charles Stivale. I have corrected some errors, and kept very close to Deleuze’s words. I have chosen to consistently translate “puissance” by “capacity”, but sometimes potency, power, or even force, would be more usual in English.
Claire Parnet: Now J is for “Joy”. This is a concept that you…

We often fell silent mid-word that autumn.
A spectral series of things, of which
not one was able to become a thing,
but only a rut of meaning that
will never need untangling in the moisture of breath.
This was extraordinarily bad. Moss was still alive, but he appeared to have an unexploded grenade inside him, with enough power to kill everybody inside the Humvee, should it explode. Its tail, sticking out of a smoking wound, left no indication of how much explosive—if any— was left in the warhead or in its detonator. The round could have been a dud, or a warhead that failed to arm but that still could explode. Unexploded ordnance in Afghanistan, especially old Soviet technology or Chinese knockoffs, wasn’t known for its stability.
Objective: By exposing the abundance of Myth with the relentless use of Math and facts, the problems and then the solutions become self-evident. With methodical discipline and by largely steering clear of opinion, the book gradually builds an exhaustive and unambiguous “amicus brief”— that ultimately leads to the unmasking of the true culprits, putting these powerful “Oligarchs in waiting” in the dock for all to see. Once found guilty by a sufficiently sized Jury of voters, followed by the consequent backlash—the eradication of Stupid from the Stupidparty—only then can the restoration of a healthy Democracy begin.
