The collapsing US military & economic empire is making Washington & NATO even more dangerous. US could not beat the Taliban but thinks it can take on China-Russia-Iran...a sign of psychopathology for sure. We must all do more to help stop this western corporate arrogance that puts the future generations lives in despair. @BruceKGagnon

Several upcoming space/climate issue webinars in November

The harms that militarism does to climate have been ignored for decades. Now space programs and nuclear weapons programs are ramping up to cause even more devastation. What are the facts about climate harms caused by these heavily funded programs? How can we challenge these assaults on the future for a liveable planet?

Impacts from Privatization of space: Environmental, Conflicts over celestial claims, war
 ICSS Marxist Library sessions sponsoring this webinwar with Bruce Gagnon from the Global Network as speaker.
This talk will include the plans by the nuclear industry to establish nuclear-rockets to Mars and nuclear-powered mining colonies on the planetary bodies. Included will be a review of US attempts to destroy the United Nations Outer Space and Moon Treaties as Obama in 2015 signed a new law giving US corporations the 'right' to make land claims for mining the sky in violation of those treaties. This will result in moving the war system into space as other nations will not allow the US to act as the 'Master of Space'.
Begins at 1:30 pm EST or 10:30 am PST
