US Sanctions Have Become Little More Than Medieval-Style Siege Warfare
Thierry Meyssan | mintpressnews.com | 2018-11-30
The new unilateral sanctions by the United States against Iran, Russia and Syria add to the previous actions concerning the same three targets. They now form the most unforgiving embargo in History.

Democratic Socialism: The Impossible Dream?
Craig Collins | counterpunch.org | 2018-11-30
The founders of "scientific socialism," Karl Marx and Frederick Engels, assumed it was quite possible, even historically inevitable, for working people to democratically govern an industrial society.
