Human Dignity: A Casualty of War

Matt Southworth, Friends Committee on National Legislation: ''As a bright-eyed nineteen-year-old soldier in Iraq in 2004, I was faced with a crisis of conscience. I thought I was going to Iraq to help free Iraqis, but instead I was a part of a mission to put them in a different kind of prison.''

Handmaidens to Barbarity

Chris Hedges, Truthdig: ''It was science, industry and technology that made possible the 20th century s industrial killing. These forces magnified innate human barbarity. They served the immoral. And there are numerous scientists who continue to work in labs across the country on weapons systems that have the capacity to exterminate millions of human beings.''

Gore Vidal and the upside of American military prisons

CounterPunch
by Chip Gibbons

08/12/12

Only the late Gore Vidal, who the American media was almost universal in describing as iconoclastic in his obituaries, could find an upside to the torture of prisoners by American soldiers. And only Vidal could find an upside that would be at the same time deeply witty, cynical, sensationalistic, and completely factual. I say completely factual because the torture and brutality that shocked the world in American military prisons from Guantanamo bay to Bagram to Abu Ghraib closely parallels and mirrors the United States s own domestic treatment of prisoners...

Love of Country

By Fred Reed

Mostly my country seems to be a bunch of brigands in Washington who send you tax forms to get money so they can kill people in some place that never did anything to you and you probably don t know where is.

Herrmann will Staatstrojaner bald wieder einsetzen

Der bayerische Innenminister interpretiert das Gutachten des Datenschutzbeauftragten als Bestätigung.

Rechtsbruch wird Tradition: Der Staatstrojaner lebt

''Der bayerische Datenschutzbeauftragte legt seinen Bericht zum Staatstrojaner vor. Die Reaktionen vermitteln eine deutliche Botschaft: Weiterhin soll bestehendes Recht gebrochen werden. Die endlose peinliche Geschichte um den Staatstrojaner ist in der ersten Augustwoche um eine Facette reicher geworden. Der bayerische Datenschutzbeauftragte Thomas Petri legte nach monatelangen Prüfungen einen Bericht vor. Er sollte eigentlich mehr Klarheit in die technischen und rechtlichen Details des staatlichen Infiltrierens von Computern nach bayerischem Brauch bringen. Trotz eines schweren strukturellen Mangels, auch Petri bekam keine Einsicht in den Quelltext, überführt der Bericht die Strafverfolgungsbehörden eines höchst laxen, geradezu trickreichen Umgangs mit den Grundsätzen, die ihnen das Bundesverfassungsgericht vorschrieb: programmierter Verfassungsbruch?''

BVerfG-AsylbLG-Urteil: dringend Widerspruch einlegen/Aktualisierte Sammlung Ländererlasse

''Die Länder Brandenburg, Bayern, Ba-Wü, Rheinland Pfalz, Thüringen und Berlin haben mittlerweile Erlasse zur Umsetzung des BVerfG-AsylbLG-Urteils rausgegeben. Der Bayerische Erlass fordert explizit dazu auf, das BVerfG-Urteil teilweise nicht zu beachten, indem er die Regelsätze zusätzlich um die Position Gesundheitsvorsorge kürzt. Bayern, Ba-Wü und Berlin wollen die höheren Leistungen erst für Zeiträume ab 1.8.2012 gewähren. Hamburg will erst zum 1.9. mit der Auszahlung beginnen. Die Flüchtlingsberatungsstellen raten nicht nur deshalb dringend dazu, in jedem Fall Widerspruch einzulegen! Wer keinen Widerspruch einlegt, verliert ggf. mindestens den Anspruch auf Nachzahlung der Differenzbeträge von ca 100 ?/Person/Monat für den Monat Juli. Aus den o.g. Gründen und bei Ablehnung des Widerspruchs sind Klagen und evtl. Eilantrag beim Sozialgericht zu prüfen.'' Aus dem Newsletter von Harald Thomé vom 3.8.2012
