Me quoted in Fairfax papers on tax haven use
Me quoted by Georgia Wilkins in The Age (and other Fairfax publications) today. John Passant, from the school of political science and international relations, at the Australian National University, said the trend noted by Computershare was further evidence multinationals did not take global regulators seriously. ”US companies are doing this on the hard-nosed basis that any [regulatory] changes that will be made won’t have an impact on their ability to avoid tax,” he said. ”They think it is going to take a long time for the G20 to take action, or that they are just all talk.” (1)

Will Tony Abbott condemn Western barbarism in Iraq?

When Tony Abbott condems the murder by the West of the 1.5 million Iraqi civilians who died as a consequence of the US led invasion in 2003, then we can ask Hizb ut-Tahrir to condemn Islamic State barbarism.

Their barbarism and ours

Maybe, just maybe, the barbarism of the Islamic State is a consequence of and reflection of the West’s own widespread and systemic barbarism.

Socialism or global warming barbarism?

The urgency is great. Capitalism cannot cure itself. It is driven by its internal logic to destroy the planet in the search for profit and the reinvestment of any surplus value we create. The choice is becoming starker and starker. It is either socialism with democracy, planning and satisfying human need leading to a secure and safe environment or the continuation of capitalism and the descent into global warming barbarism.
