“Confucianism”: Ru (儒) School Mislabeled
By Sherwin Lu   2018-04-01
The English word “Confucianism” comes from “Confucius”, the name of one of the world-renowned great thinkers in China’s history, but the label “Confucianism” has often been wrongly applied to the later Ru school of thought, which actually deviated from and betrayed the authentic Confucian tradition. Therefore, it is essentially important to make a clear distinction between the two, which is the very purpose of this essay.... Nowadays, many scholars, both in China and abroad, are still mentally trapped in later Ru ideology. They always talk about the Ru school as representative of Chinese culture.... But this school did severe harm to Chinese civilization ranging from culture to political economy, brought about endless disasters to generations after generations of the masses of people, and reduced the once prosperous and powerful China to an ever more frail nation subjected to bullying by foreign aggressors.

How US Has Virtually Destroyed UN
By Eric Zuesse   2018-04-19
The equivalent, in international law, to a domestic-law crime involving murder, rape, and theft, is an international invasion that’s purely for aggressive purposes and not at all authentically a defensive act against an authentic foreign threat that was coming from the invaded foreign country. Consequently, for the US Government now to have removed the UN from any authority over international invasions, is, in domestic-law equivalency, like removing a national government from authority regarding murders, rapes, and thefts, which occur inside that nation. Such a ‘government’ is no government at all. But, tragically, this is what has happened; and, so, we are now careening into World War III, in this international “Wild West” world, which we live in (and may soon die in, as things thus head into WW III).
Is Trump draining the swamp – or is the water rising?
By Linda Feldmann   2018-04-19
So far, the president's efforts to 'drain the swamp' seem more focused on deregulation and shrinking the federal workforce than making sure his team adheres to the norms and rules of ethical behavior for government officials.
North and South Korea reportedly set to announce official end to war
By Sam Meredith   2018-04-18
Ahead of a summit next week between North Korean premier Kim Jong Un and South Korean President Moon Jae-In, lawmakers from the neighboring states were thought to be negotiating the details of a joint statement that could outline an end to the military conflict between the two countries. Pyongyang and Seoul have technically been at war since the 1950-1953 Korean conflict ended with a truce — and not a peace treaty.

Tomgram: Steve Fraser, Teaching America a Lesson
By Steve Fraser   2018-04-18
The strikes, rallies, and walkouts of public school teachers in West Virginia, Oklahoma, Kentucky, soon perhaps Arizona, and elsewhere are a stunning reminder that class has always mattered far more in our public and private lives than our origin story would allow. Insurgent teachers are instructing us all about a tale of denial for which we’ve paid a heavy price.
