Politico: Joe Biden’s transition team has tried to project calm as President Donald Trump refuses to concede and many Republicans — and even one key part of the federal government — continue to have his back. But behind the scenes, Biden’s advisers are in the midst of a fierce lobbying blitz to get Trump’s allies to crack. They’re dispatching emissaries from past administrations — Republican and Democrat — along with a wide array of business and interest group leaders to intercede on Biden’s behalf. According to three transition officials, Biden’s team is in talks with multiple Republican leaders and officeholders to end the transition stalemate, warning them of risks to national security and public health if the president-elect isn’t granted access to the government. Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris are also deploying aides and allies to ramp up public pressure on General Services Administrator Emily Murphy, who has refused to acknowledge Biden’s victory and thus allow the transition to officially begin. Democratic congressional leaders have joined in, too, criticizing Murphy for holding up the transition. “At some point, we have to recognize defiance for what it is. And that’s not tolerable. We had an election. Joe Biden won — not, not even close — it’s a decisive win,” said Rep. Gerry Connolly, chair of a key House Oversight subcommittee who has written to Murphy. “I worry about precedent. If this isn’t challenged and dissipated quickly — the denial part here — it becomes a new tactic in dragging out an election and clouding the results in the minds of lots of … voters. And that is dangerous in a democracy.” Biden’s team is trying to walk a line between blasting Murphy and Republicans — which might cause them to dig in more — and highlighting what they call legitimate dangers of delay. They want to avoid open partisan warfare, convinced it would only further inflame Trump and his supporters. Instead, the thinking goes, apply pressure privately, and remove enough bricks in Trump’s wall of defenders until it collapses. “The general posture is every option is on the table, but right now we’re really trying to focus on the public pressure phase and really trying to show the cost of not receiving ‘ascertainment’” — the term for recognizing Biden as the winner — said another Democrat involved in discussions. To further highlight the issue, Biden this week met with outside national security experts in Wilmington, Del. to discuss their experiences battling coronavirus. And while Harris received a classified intelligence briefing in her capacity as a senator, Biden noted he is not entitled to such classified briefings until the GSA acts. The GSA’s refusal to acknowledge Biden’s election victory is also blocking access to millions of dollars in government resources that would cover an array of costs, such as staff, travel, experts and consultants. It would also enable the Biden team to freely contact government officials including Fauci. While there are legal options available to try to force the GSA’s hand, Biden’s team is avoiding them for now. A court battle could backfire and cause even longer delays, they say. [Politico: Biden mounts lobbying blitz to crack GOP resistance to his transition]
CNN: A handful of current Trump administration officials, as well as some political appointees who left in recent months, have quietly started to reach out to members of President-elect Joe Biden’s transition team, according to people briefed on the matter. The outreach is a sign that President Donald Trump’s refusal to concede the election and the continued obstruction from the White House is beginning to frustrate even those affiliated with the administration. CNN they’re viewing the outreach effort as putting duty to the country over partisan considerations. The conversations are not as detailed as formal briefings that would take place under the officially sanctioned transition, sources said, but they at least could help incoming Biden transition members have a sense of the issues they might have to deal with upon taking office. Another former White House official who left the administration a few months ago said that he personally emailed someone who he expects will be back in the Biden administration in a similar role to his and offered to help. One current administration official confirmed to CNN on Wednesday that there has been informal outreach from inside Trump’s government to Biden’s team. “Nothing that would get us in trouble,” the official said. “Just an offer to be of help. They know what we mean, and what we can-and-can’t do or say.” The official said that outreach thus far hasn’t resulted in any substantive conversations. A senior adviser to Biden acknowledged the outreach from across the government, but declined to comment. A separate Biden aide said the assistance was appreciated and in several cases was an outgrowth of pre-existing relationships in specific fields, but noted that it was not nearly as robust as a traditional transition of power. “It requires more than former officials choosing to step forward and be helpful to ensure a smooth transition of power,” Kate Bedingfield, deputy campaign manager and transition adviser to Biden, told CNN. “GSA should follow the law and ascertain the results of the election so that Americans get a smooth and effective hand off between administrations.” [CNN: Current and former Trump officials quietly reach out to Biden team]
Breitbart: President Donald Trump on Saturday dismissed House Republican Conference Chair Liz Cheney after she asked him to accept the results of the election. “Sorry Liz, can’t accept the results of an election with hundreds of thousands of fraudulent votes cast, enough to easily flip the Election,” Trump wrote on Twitter [Donald Trump: 22 Nov 2020]. In a statement [Cheney House: Cheney: America Is Governed By The Rule Of Law] Saturday, Cheney asked Trump to have his lawyers submit evidence of his claims of widespread criminality and voter fraud to the American people. “If the President cannot prove these claims or demonstrate that they would change the election result, he should fulfill his oath to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States by respecting the sanctity of our electoral process,” she concluded. Trump dismissed Cheney’s statement, suggesting that she was merely disappointed that he ordered American troops home from Afghanistan and Iraq. “You’re just unhappy that I’m bringing the troops back home where they belong!” he wrote. [Breitbart: Donald Trump Dismisses Liz Cheney Request to Accept Election Results] …… Liz Cheney on Saturday urged President Donald Trump to respect “the sanctity of our electoral process” if he cannot prove his voter fraud claims. “America is governed by the rule of law,” the chair of the House Republican Conference said in a statement. “The President and his lawyers have made claims of criminality and widespread fraud, which they allege could impact election results.

Fox News: The decision by U.S. Middle District Judge Matthew Brann on Saturday was just the latest disappointment for the Trump 2020 Campaign, which was struggling to overturn the results of the Nov. 3 election. U.S. Sen. Pat Toomey, R-Pa., threw his support behind Judge Brann’s decision Saturday, and congratulated Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris for their victory. Toomey said he knew Brann, a “longtime conservative Republican … to be a fair and unbiased jurist” and therefore he believed Trump “has exhausted all plausible legal options to challenge the result of the presidential race in Pennsylvania.” But Trump’s legal team and senior advisers suggested they thought Brann’s ruling came from bias, noting Brann was an “Obama-appointed judge.” They claimed it actually advanced their strategy to take the fight to the U.S. Supreme Court. “Today’s decision turns out to help us in our strategy to get expeditiously to the U.S. Supreme Court,” Trump’s team said in a statement. “Although we fully disagree with this opinion, we’re thankful to the Obama-appointed judge for making this anticipated decision quickly, rather than simply trying to run out the clock.” [Fox News: Trump questions why Biden forming cabinet as his legal team continues voter-fraud fight; Breitbart: Trump Lawyers: Pennsylvania Lawsuit Dismissal Moves Us Closer to Supreme Court]
Politico: ‘WE DON’T NEGOTIATE WITH TERRORISTS’ — Some in the Biden camp warn that the left wing of the Democratic Party is already spoiling the goodwill they built up during the presidential campaign with the flurry of attacks this week on President-elect JOE BIDEN’s early White House appointments. “I think we are at a fork in the road,” said one Democratic operative in close touch with the Biden campaign. “They can either continue to just beat the drums on the streets or they can start to leverage the relationship they have. It’s up to them which strategy they adopt.” The left wing’s publicly aggressive tactics could lead Biden to just tune them out altogether. “If all you do is escalate, then people eventually think that you’re enemies and not friends and they’re like: ‘We don’t negotiate with terrorists,’” said JESS MORALES ROCKETTO, a Democratic strategist who supports many of the left wing’s goals. The chill in the relationship comes after a number of progressive groups and politicians made clear this week that there would not be any honeymoon period for the new Democratic administration. The climate-focused group Sunrise Movement accused Biden this week of “betrayal” for hiring longtime ally Rep. CEDRIC RICHMOND (D-La.) because the fossil fuel industry has been a longtime backer. Justice Democrats bashed Biden for his “corporate-friendly” appointments, including his new senior counselor STEVE RICCHETTI. Opposition research is flying around on more potential appointments, including another close Biden aide, BRUCE REED. Justice Democrats’ spokesperson WALEED SHAHID was unapologetic: “If you’re still going to consider giving a top position to deficit hawks like Bruce Reed, who led the Bowles-Simpson commission to have Democrats work with Republicans to cut Social Security, you have to be expecting push back from your own party,” he said in a text message. Sunrise declined to comment. Some in the Biden camp believe they demonstrated their desire to have the left at the table in the policy working groups established after the primary along with appointing many progressives to the transition’s agency review teams (a step which has angered some in the business community). Firing arrows now may get headlines, but it is also the fastest way to lose influence with Biden’s inner circle, which values bridge-builders, some say. Being bombastic and colorful might be a way to wield power in President DONALD TRUMP’s Washington, they argue, but it likely won’t be in Biden’s. …….. Just as Trump opted at different points in his presidency to serve as his own political strategist or communications director, he has become his own transition, or un-transition, guru.

Max Blumenthal: The Michael Moore-produced ‘Planet of the Humans’ [Planet of the Humans: Trailer: Michael Moore; Documentary: Sam: Awareness] faced a coordinated suppression campaign led by professional climate activists backed by the same ‘green’ billionaires, Wall Street investors, industry insiders and family foundations skewered in the film. …………. It is hard to think of an American film that provoked a greater backlash in 2020 than “Planet of the Humans.” Focused on the theme of planetary extinction and fanciful proposals to ward it off, the documentary was released for free on YouTube on April 21. The date was significant not only because it was the eve of the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, but because a global pandemic was tearing through America’s social fabric and exposing the human toll of the country’s globalized, growth-obsessed economic model. Even before “Planet of the Humans” was released, however, the producers of the film had fallen under pressure to retract it. Upon the film’s release, a who’s who of self-styled climate justice activists proceeded to blanket the internet with accusations that it was a racist, “eco-fascist” screed that deliberately advanced the interests of the oil and gas industry. When “Planet of the Humans” was briefly yanked from YouTube thanks to a questionable copyright claim by an angry climate warrior, the free speech organization Pen America issued a remarkable statement characterizing the demands for retraction as a coordinated censorship campaign. What had this documentary done to inflame so much opposition from the faces and voices of professional climate justice activism? First, it probed the well-established shortcomings of renewable energy sources like solar and wind power that have been marketed as a green panacea. “Planet of the Humans” portrayed these technologies as anything but green, surveying the environmental damage already caused by solar and wind farms, which require heavy mining and smelting to produce, destroy swaths of pristine land, and sometimes demand natural gas to operate. While major environmental outfits have lobbied for a Green New Deal to fuel a renewables-based industrial revolution, and are now banking on a Democratic presidency to enact their proposals, “Planet of the Humans” put forward a radical critique that called their entire agenda into question. As the director of the documentary, Jeff Gibbs, explained, “When we focus on climate change only as the thing destroying the planet and we demand solutions, we get used by forces of capitalism who want to continue to sell us the disastrous illusion that we can mine and smelt and industrialize our way out of this extinction event. And again, behind the scenes, much of what we’re doing to ‘save’ the planet is to burn the ‘bio’ of the planet as green energy.” “Planet of the Humans” crossed another bright green line by taking aim at the self-proclaimed climate justice activists themselves, painting them as opportunists who had been willingly co-opted by predatory capitalists. The filmmakers highlighted the role of family foundations like the Rockefeller Brothers Fund in cultivating a class of professional activists that tend toward greenwashing partnerships with Wall Street and the Democratic Party to coalitions with anti-capitalist militants and anti-war groups. ……….. In the weeks ahead of the Democratic National Convention, climate justice organizations like the Sunrise Movement 501 c-4 which emerged in the shadow of Sen. Bernie Sanders’ presidential run and condemned former Vice President Joseph Biden as a tool of the establishment suddenly changed their tune. Flush with dark money from Democratic Party-aligned billionaires, Sunrise Movement co-founder Varshini Prakash stated on July 14 – the day Biden released his clean energy plan: “It’s no secret that we’ve been critical of Vice President’s Biden’s plans and commitments in the past. Today, he’s responded to many of those criticisms: dramatically increasing the scale and urgency of investments… Our movement, alongside environmental justice communities and frontline workers, has taught Joe Biden to talk the talk.” While it brands itself as a grassroots movement that has organized anti-establishment stunts putting centrist figures like Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein on the spot, the Sunrise Movement was incubated with a grant from the Sierra Club, the Mike Bloomberg-backed juggernaut of Big Green organizing. Today, offices of the two organizations are located a floor apart in the same building in downtown Washington DC. Ahead of the DNC, the Biden campaign introduced a $2 trillion plan pledge to invest heavily in renewable technology to achieve “a carbon pollution-free power sector by 2035.” The plan promised to erect 500 million solar panels in the next five years alongside 60,000 new wind turbines. With the demand for solar plummeting due to the coronavirus pandemic, the prospect of gigantic government subsidies was music to the ears of the “cleantech” tycoons who sponsor Democratic Party-aligned climate advocacy organizations. Many of these green millionaires and billionaires had feasted at the trough of Obama’s stimulus package, which was directly responsible for powering the rise of America’s solar industry. After promising upon his inauguration to invest $150 billion in “a new green energy business sector,” Obama doled out an eye-popping $4.9 billion in subsidies to Tesla’s Elon Musk and a $1.2 billion loan guarantee for Tom Dinwoodie’s SunPower US to construct the California Valley Solar Ranch. In June 2019, an “avian incident” caused a fire at the SunPower Solar Ranch project, impacting over 1200 acres and knocking out 84% of generating capacity for several weeks. “Planet of the Humans” presented viewers with the disturbing story of the Ivanpah solar plant, a signature initiative in Obama’s green energy plan which was co-owned by Google. Gifted with $1.6 billion in loan guarantees and $600 million in federal tax credits, Ivanpah was built on 5.6 square miles of pristine public land close to California’s Mojave National Preserve. In its first year, the massive plant produced less than half its of its planned energy goal while burning over 6000 birds to death. Because of the intermittency inherent to solar power, the gargantuan energy project has had to burn massive amounts of natural gas to keep the system primed when the sun is not shining. Despite its dependence on fossil fuel, Ivanpah still qualifies under state rules as a renewable plant. “The bottom line is the public didn’t expect this project to consume this much natural gas,” David Lamfrom, California desert manager for the National Parks Conservation Association, told the local Press-Enterprise. “We did not have full knowledge that this was what we were signing up for.” Even after the Obama administration poured billions of dollars into solar projects, solar energy output increased between 2008 and 2016 by just .88% as a total of American energy production. Meanwhile, across the country, many new wind projects remain stalled due to community concerns about land destruction. In the home state of Green New Deal advocate Sen. Bernie Sanders, the only remaining wind project was canceled this January. For raising questions about the efficacy and environmental cost of renewable projects like these, and proposing an explicitly anti-capitalist solution to the corporate destruction of the planet, the makers of “Planet of the Humans” were steamrolled by a network of professional climate activists, billionaire investors and industry insiders. Now, with the Biden campaign promising a new flood of renewable subsidies and tax breaks under the auspices of a “clean” energy plan, the public remains in the dark about what it is signing up for. Even if the ambitious agenda fails to deliver any substantial environmental good, it promises a growing class of green investors another opportunity to do well.

Gareth Porter: Petraeus was assigned to the Combined Arms Center, an arm of the Training and Doctrine Command, at Ft. Leavenworth, Kansas, where he presided over the rewriting of the Army’s Manual on Counterinsurgency (COIN). The COIN manual ducked some central issues in the US wars in both Iraq and Afghanistan – most notably whether US troops should have been carrying out violent “cordon and search” operations, especially when they had little or no real intelligence to go on. Intent on staying within the political consensus of the military establishment, Petraeus opted not to criticize the tactic of violently invading private homes and seizing military-age males in the middle of the night in front of their families, which had become routine in Iraq. But in one area, the manual staked out a bold new position. It called for the commander in a counterinsurgency war to influence the coverage of the war by the news media. “The media directly influence the attitude of key audiences toward counterinsurgents, their operations and the opposing insurgency,” the section on “information operations” said. “This situation creates a war of perceptions between insurgents and counterinsurgents conducted continuously using the news media.” In the absence of information provided by the command, the manual warned, “some media representatives develop stories on their own that may be inaccurate and may not include the COIN force perspective.” It said commanders need to “engage the media, create positive relationships and help the media tell the story.” The directive to manage news coverage to produce a media narrative that was more favorable to the command reflected his own experience in Mosul and at MNSTC-I. It could be argued that – more than anything else in the manual – those excerpts reveal the single most important element in Petraeus’s thinking about command of a counterinsurgency war. .. Only four days after his arrival, Petraeus assembled his generals and urged them to “engage” with reporters, as journalist Tom Ricks recounts in The Gamble. “Sixty percent of this thing is information,” he told them.

I tell people, “When the landing-craft ramp drops and hits the beach, that’s not the time to discuss the plan.” Unhealthy dissent goes away when you show your team respect, engage them in the process and pass information along to them. Give them as much transparency into decision making as is possible and practical to do. But everybody needs to understand that there’s a point–once a decision has been made or a line has been crossed–at which dissent is no longer appropriate, unless it is very carefully and very maturely provided in the right time, place and way. And that takes a deft hand. What I’m saying is that it’s not okay to bitch about everything all the time and fight things. There’s a time to shut up and execute, and the organization should be schooled in that. In reality, I’m not that black and white, because there might be things emerging after the fact that people should know. But if you didn’t speak during those first two phases, I think it’s inappropriate to raise things that aren’t of an emergency nature.

David Petraeus: We looked at the problem and thought we’d rather go through Jordan than Baghdad. … It was best captured by a sign on a door of a commander whom I went on patrol with his company; in what used to be a very dangerous part of Iraq and his brigade had done a magnificent job. I remember walking around with no body armour, no kevlar, watched the soccer game, walked through the market, made a few purchases. And we go back to his command post, which was a plywood door in some little makeshift office and there is a sign on it that says: “In the absence of guidance or orders; figure out what they should have been and execute aggressively”. ..

Animal kingdom, the rule is: eat or be eaten; human kingdom: define or be defined:
Thomas Szasz: The Second Sin: Formerly, Americans charged with murder were considered innocent until proven guilty; now they are considered insane until proven sane. To concepts like suicide, homicide, and genocide, we should add semanticide – the murder of language. The deliberate (or quasi-deliberate) misuse of language through hidden metaphor and professional mystification breaks the basic contract between people, namely the tactic agreement on the proper use of words. In the animal kingdom, the rule is: eat or be eaten; in the human kingdom: define or be defined. Man is the animal that speaks. Understanding language is thus the key to understanding man; and the control of language, to the control of man. Hence it is that men struggle not only over territory, food, and raw materials, but today perhaps most of all over language. For to control the Word is to be the Definer: God, king, pope, president, legislator, scientist, psychiatrist, madman – you and me. God defines everything and everyone. The totalitarian leader aspires to similar grandeur. The ordinary person defines some aspects of himself and of a few others. But even the most modest and powerless of men defines something no one else can: his own dreams. And we are all defined, as well: by our genes which shape us; our parents who name us; our society which classifies us; and so on. It has long seemed to me that some of the fundamental problems of psychiatry are really quiet simple: they center around a struggle for definition between the so-called mental patient on the one side and his family, society, and psychiatrist on the other. each party to this contest speaks a different language, whose content and consequences he tries to impose on his adversary. Although the context sometimes looks like a debate, it is actually a bitter fight for survival, and, like all such struggles, it is decided not by logic, but by power. If, as the Old Testament tells us, the First or Original Sin was the knowledge of good and evil, then the knowledge of clear speech was the ‘Second Sin.” At Babel, God punished man for this transgression with the Divine Confusion, and we have been misleading each other ever since. Dr. Thomas Szasz believes that it is this confusion of language that has produced much of the inhumanity, intolerance, and outright stupidity which today affect everything from our politics to our sex lives.

Nancy Youssef: The heart of the problem, soldiers fighting in Afghanistan and some officials in Washington told McClatchy, is that neither Barack Obama’s White House nor the Pentagon has clearly defined America’s mission in Afghanistan. As a result, some soldiers in the field said, they aren’t sure what their objectives are. “Gen. McChrystal’s latest assessment reportedly indicates that the situation in Afghanistan is ‘serious,’ ” said former deputy secretary of state and Pentagon official Richard Armitage, referring to Gen. Stanley McChrystal, the U.S. military commander in Afghanistan. “President Obama needs to define, more clearly than he has so far, what our country’s objectives in Afghanistan are and his strategy for achieving them. Without that, it’s impossible to assess whether the mission requires additional troops.” The administration’s stated goals in Afghanistan have ranged from eliminating the threat posed by al-Qaida — which is based in neighboring Pakistan, not in Afghanistan — and building a stable democratic state, depending on what administration official is speaking and when.

Yakov Kedmi: Actually I get angry when people talk about history and pretend to be truth-seekers ostensibly objective, yet avoid or cover up certain facts. Talking about the Nuremberg trials. The Nuremberg trials were a result of a single person’s will. His name was Joseph Stalin. If it weren’t for him, these trials wouldn’t have taken place. You can think whatever you want of Stalin, but hushing up this fact is nothing but falsifying history. Thats not how history should be studied. Whatever people say. It was his idea. For several years he imposed his will on the entire Soviet administration and those who didn’t want the trials to take place. Because he said, “They can be killed, but they have to be tried in court.” He was the first one in the world to demand a trial for them. Not representatives of the democratic US. Not the democratic UK, let France alone. But when people talk about it and don’t mention this, its dishonest from an intellectual point of view. You cannot do that. Whoever the person is. Second. The trials didn’t condemn Nazism. They condemned German Nazism. [Vesti News: Y. Kedmi: Allies Wanted to Kill Germans Without Trial; Without Stalin There Would be No Nuremberg!]

War on the Rocks: Professor and historian Francine Hirsch of the University of Wisconsin-Madison seeks to set the record straight in a wonderful new book, Soviet Judgment at Nuremberg: A New History of the International Military Tribunal After World War II. Drawing upon original research from newly available and under-studied Soviet archives, Hirsch offers a rich narrative account of the convening, proceedings, and aftermath of the Nuremberg Tribunal that challenges several of the central myths that many, myself included, have accepted. Most importantly, the book surfaces the foundational role played by Soviet jurists in the convocation of the first truly international war crimes tribunal and the inauguration of the international criminal law canon. Although focused on the so-called “trial to end all wars,” the book also covers the inauguration of the Cold War through the vehicle of a courtroom drama. Hirsch reveals that the Nuremberg trial was, in many respects, “the last hurrah of wartime cooperation for the Allied powers” and “an early front of the Cold War.” This is not mere hindsight. Rather, these seismic geopolitical shifts were palpable to all involved in the trial. Indeed, they prompted Hermann Göring — arguably the highest-ranking defendant tried at Nuremberg — to quip that, “the only allies who are still allied are the four prosecutors, and they are only allied against the defendants.” In other words, it was apparent to all that by the time of the trial, the allies were no longer allied, except in their desire to convict the defendants. .. A Russian Jew and legal contemporary of Raphael Lemkin (who coined the term ’genocide’) and Hersch Lauterpacht, Aron Trainin is credited with pushing for the establishment of an international court following the war in his academic writing and well before the allies were on board with the idea, introducing the concept of crimes against the peace (or ‘crime of aggression’ in today’s lexicon), and advocating for the creation of a permanent international criminal court to try future war criminals. Trainin was compelled by a genuine belief that international law could be a force for peace and that the Soviet Union could play a progressive role in its development. He also championed the concept of complicity (having written a book [USF: T Porter: In Defense of Peace: Aron Trainin’s Contributions to International Jurisprudence] on the topic), critiqued the defense of superior orders, and supported an expanded reach for the charge of crimes against humanity. Although the Soviets did not participate in the work of the U.N. War Crimes Commission, which hammered out the postwar justice agenda, many of Trainin’s ideas were presented thereby a Czech envoy, Bohuslav Ečer, who was familiar with Trainin’s academic work. As a result, many of Trainin’s ideas were eventually picked up by key justice architects among the allies — often without attribution. .. As the book unfolds, it is fascinating to see the Soviet delegation gradually come to the realization that they are entirely unprepared for the daunting task that had been put to them. Stalin insisted on exercising centralized control of the proceedings from his perch in Moscow, which included ideological wordsmithing, masking Soviet abuses and other inconvenient truths, and highlighting “the capitalist underpinnings of fascism.” .. A lamentable casualty of the deteriorating four-powers alliance was the proposal for a second international military tribunal to bring to justice the German financiers and industrialists who had bankrolled and profited from the Nazi enterprise — another key Soviet aim. The Americans refused to participate in a second international tribunal in the European theater, largely scuttling the Soviets’ plan to expose the connections between American and German industrialist circles and indelibly link capitalism and fascism. Although the Americans eventually prosecuted a number of industrialists in their zone of occupation under Control Council Number 10 — including principals of the Flick Concern, IG Farben, and the Krupp Works — the West soon saw German industry as a critical bulwark against the spread of Soviet communism and later rehabilitated a number of defendants, including Alfried Krupp. The Soviet concept of corporate responsibility in some respects presaged the newest front of today’s human rights litigation: cases seeking to hold corporate actors liable for enabling, profiting from, and being complicit in human rights abuses around the world.

Anarchist Library: The essay – On the Phenomenon of Bullshit Jobs – was based on a hunch. Everyone is familiar with those sort of jobs that don’t seem, to the outsider, to really do much of anything: HR consultants, communications coordinators, PR researchers, financial strategists, corporate lawyers, or the sort of people (very familiar in academic contexts) who spend their time staffing committees that discuss the problem of unnecessary committees. The list was seemingly endless. What, I wondered, if these jobs really are useless, and those who hold them are aware of it? Certainly you meet people now and then who seem to feel their jobs are pointless and unnecessary. Could there be anything more demoralizing than having to wake up in the morning five out of seven days of one’s adult life to perform a task that one secretly believed did not need to be performed—that was simply a waste of time or resources, or that even made the world worse? Would this not be a terrible psychic wound running across our society? Yet if so, it was one that no one ever seemed to talk about. There were plenty of surveys over whether people were happy at work. There were none, as far as I knew, about whether or not they felt their jobs had any good reason to exist. This possibility that our society is riddled with useless jobs that no one wants to talk about did not seem inherently implausible. [Anarchist Library: David Graeber: Bullshit Jobs: A Theory] ………. The Guardian: In Debt: The First 5,000 Years, David Graeber called for a biblical-style “jubilee”– meaning a wiping out of sovereign and consumer debts. “Debt,” he wrote, “is the most efficient means ever created to take relations that are fundamentally based on violence and violent inequality and make them seem right and proper.” He noted that many of the people who protested at Occupy Wall Street with him, as well as those who took to the streets in Egypt and Spain in 2011, had one big thing in common: “Most of them were people who had gone through the educational system who were deeply in debt and who found it completely impossible to find jobs. The system has completely failed them … If there’s going to be any kind of society worth living in, we’re going to have to create it ourselves.” [The Guardian: David Graeber Obituary]
High Country News: Tung Yin, a law professor at Lewis & Clark Law School in Portland, Oregon, said the Malheur Occupation verdict was surprising and may reflect the broader political environment. He drew a parallel to pollsters’ failure to identify Donald Trump as a viable candidate during the Republican primaries. Yin said the Malheur verdict “suggests that there’s something going on that most of the observers like me must be missing…. The mood of the electorate was some kind of simmering anger that Trump was able to channel. Maybe something like that is resonating at a level that is subconscious to the legal doctrine.” [High Country News: Jury finds occupiers of Oregon wildlife refuge not guilty].
