Consumerism in America through Art

Our lives are ruled by greed and materialistic pursuits, with people showing high level of consumerist behaviour and to an extent that we have reached a state of denial about how our lifestyle is damaging the environment. US-based photographer and artist, Chris Jordan, through his photos shows the impact or rather the enormity of our actions that will leave you shocked in dismay. Jordan uses the m... »

US Army’s Plan to Entice Recruits

Its time to brainwash children since no one wants to join, says the US Army. The unpopular Iraq War and strong criticism of the US Army from around the world doesn’t stop them from opening their first Army Experience Center, which will not only recruit next generation soldiers but also entice youth to join the Army. With the number of people wanting to serve their country dwindling, the US A... »

America, the Real Terrorist?

Over the years America has waged war with countries, forcibly occupied territories and murdered millions of men, women and children. Dropped nuclear bombs on Japan, destroyed Vietnam’s ecosystem with Agent Orange, and has created such an atmosphere in Iraq that radiation levels have been compared to twenty five thousand bombs used in Nagasaki. As I take you on this journey through pain and s... »

The darkness of war traumas, scientifically known as Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD)is an anxiety disorder that can develop after exposure to one or mor... »

The Lives of Tibetans in Exile

With the 2008 Olympic games hosted in China, Tibet seems to be the center of attraction, the Chinese have been occupying Tibet after the invasion in 1951 just how America invaded Iraq in 2003 and are still occupying it. The Chinese coincidentally also say the same as the Americans said about Iraq, that pre-liberation Tibet was a medieval, oppressive society consisting of landowners, serfs and slav... »

Most Americans are Brainwashed by Propaganda

Two months ago I came across a blog run by a couple of brainwashed American Soldiers, who propagate war and killing people. What I have understood from the fact of the matter is that the soldiers who are waging war actually think that they are peacekeepers.
