Neoliberals, Neoconservatives, and Neofascists by Janet Maker

Political parties exist to secure responsible government and to execute the will of the people. From these great tasks both of the old parties have turned aside. Instead of instruments to promote the general welfare, they have become the tools of corrupt interests which use them impartially to serve their selfish purposes. Behind the ostensible government sits enthroned an invisible government owing no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to the people. To destroy this invisible government, to dissolve the unholy alliance between...

Why Are We Letting This Train Wreck Happen? by Janet Maker

Everybody also knows, or should know in view of the overwhelming evidence, that the 2016 election was crooked. We have known that U.S. elections were rigged since at least 2000—voter suppression, Republican-owned proprietary software that can’t be audited, and much more. All our elections should be audited. Yet the only person standing up to challenge this election is Jill Stein. Why isn’t everyone rushing to help her?

How to Change the World in 3 Easy Steps by Nafeez Ahmed

I often get asked by people about what they can do to change things, to change the world, when each of us is just one person, in the face of so much that we cannot even hope to control or influence. What can we do? Why bother, given our powerlessness? As we look back on the key events of 2015, and the processes that led to them, it would be all too easy to succumb to despair. Despite fighting the ‘war on terror’ for 14 years since 9/11, we’ve only succeeded in seeing terrorism accelerate, metastasising into the so-called ‘Islamic State’ in...

Shifting Focus to Bernie’s Legislative Agenda, by Stephen Fox

We are shifting the focus in our Facebook group, Bernie Sanders: Advice and Strategies to Win, to specifically helping Bernie achieve his legislative projects. This must take place for our group’s efforts to have any real long term effect. If you are a Facebook Friend or Friend of Friend, and want to join our group, I welcome you to do so. I envision a kind of legislative project clearinghouse, in which members can bring up what is important to them in their state, and which might need letters to other US Senators and members of Congress from...

What Should We Do Now?   by Janet Maker

The Good News website and newsletter are intended not only to make us feel better, to help counteract the depressing barrage of terrible news in the media, but also to chronicle a cultural change. As the world shifts from the Industrial Age to the Information Age, most of the major institutions have become unstable.  People have lost confidence to one degree or another in government, the military, banking, medicine, education, business, religion, and the media.  The family, the backbone institution of all societies, is morphing too, to...

Hillary and the Lesser Evil by Janet Maker

Everyone seems to be discussing whether, if Bernie doesn’t get the nomination, his supporters should vote for Hillary.  One thing to keep in mind is that the FBI is currently conducting an inquiry into her emails.  Even if the FBI clears her of wrongdoing, it is possible that something detrimental could surface from the emails or from her Wall Street speeches, or that she could be implicated in electoral fraud (there is a lot of buzz about her role in the debacle in New York).   In case something emerges that is bad enough to make her...

Concepts of Morality by Janet Maker

When I post “good news” I am guided by my concept of what is right and what is wrong. I have conservative friends who can’t bear to look at my website because what I consider to be good news, they consider to be bad news. As we can see from the conflicts raging all over the world as well as the political divisiveness in the U.S., people don’t agree on what is good and what is bad. We tend to label those who disagree with us as immoral or amoral, but usually that isn’t true. What is true is that their morality is different from ours. Those of...
