The Guardian view on the killing of Boris Nemtsov: a watershed for Russia | Editorial 2.3.2015 Guardian: Comment is Free
This brazen assassination under the eyes of the Kremlin’s security cameras shows the true character of the Putin regime The bullets that killed Boris Nemtsov, a leading opposition figure in Russia, mark a watershed. There have been political assassinations before in Vladimir Putin’s Russia. The list of victims is in fact strikingly long. It includes the journalist and human rights activist Anna Politkovskaya , gunned down in October 2006, after she had reported far and wide on the war crimes of the Russian army and its local allies in Chechnya. Alexander Litvinenko, a Russian former secret service agent in exile in London, was poisoned to death with polonium the very next month. He had repeatedly accused Mr Putin of responsibility for the 1999 Moscow and Volgodonsk bombings that set the stage for the outbreak of another war in Chechnya and contributed to Mr Putin’s political ascent. Mr Litvinenko had also helped western intelligence track down Russian mafia activities in Europe with Kremlin ...

What's Butylated Hydroxyltoluene and Why Is It in Your Food Even Though It's Banned in Europe? 28.2.2015 Truthout.com
From the perspective of corporations, the less the public knows about what their products contain or emit, the better. (Photo via Shutterstock )A speaker at an event I recently attended asked why U.S. food companies put butylated hydroxyltoluene, a food preservative and endocrine disruptor, in cereal sold stateside, while in Europe the same companies formulate the same product without BHT. There are three answers to that question: The European Union prohibits numerous harmful ingredients U.S. regulatory agencies allow. Well-informed European citizens have organized and pushed for those regulations. U.S. citizens have not yet pushed for such regulations in sufficient numbers. The precautionary principle is an approach to risk management which places the burden of proof to demonstrate a product or ingredient's safety on the corporations that produces the product— prior to releasing it to the public. Over the last few decades, the U.S. has become lax with this approach while Europe proceeds with a greater ...

The US Helped Create International Law, Now We Just Ignore It 28.2.2015 Mother Jones
This story first appeared on the TomDispatch website. "The sovereign is he who decides on the exception," said conservative thinker Carl Schmitt in 1922, meaning that a nation's leader can defy the law to serve the greater good. Though Schmitt's service as Nazi Germany's chief jurist and his unwavering support for Hitler from the night of the long knives to Kristallnacht and beyond damaged his reputation for decades, today his ideas have achieved unimagined influence. They have, in fact, shaped the neo-conservative view of presidential power that has become broadly bipartisan since 9/11. Indeed, Schmitt has influenced American politics directly through his intellectual protégé Leo Strauss who, as an émigré professor at the University of Chicago, trained Bush administration architects of the Iraq war Paul Wolfowitz and Abram Shulsky. All that should be impressive enough for a discredited, long dead authoritarian thinker. But Schmitt's dictum also became a philosophical foundation for the exercise of ...
