Class War Films

Like a giant and lethal parasite, the US MIC (miltary-industrial-complex), which also includes its powerful propaganda arm, the mainstream media, currently more than half of our published budget.

And this is not a secret: Many Americans are quite aware of this, but feel helpless to do anything about it. Call it the capitalist/imperialist disease: the ultimate form of cancer.Read More »

The leaked documents revealed a secret network of spies, prominent journalists and think-tanks colluding under the umbrella of a group called “Integrity Initiative” to shape domestic opinion—and to smear political opponents of the right-wing Tory government, including the leader of the opposition Labour Party, Jeremy Corbin.Read More »
