‘When Is a Military Coup Not a Military Coup?’

“For the first time in the history of the world, a coup is not a coup,” Robert Fisk writes in The Independent. “The army take over, depose and imprison the democratically elected president, suspend the constitution, arrest the usual suspects, close down television stations and mass their armour in the streets of the capital.” But the American president does not name it as so.

Careful What You Tweet For

When a staffer at the U.S. Embassy in Cairo posted a link to “The Daily Show” on Twitter, the American and Egyptian governments learned the power of social media; with digital product placement, editors can integrate advertisements into film or television scenes that were never there to begin with; meanwhile, to make way for a parking lot near the 2014 World Cup stadium site in Rio de Janeiro, Brazilian authorities are kicking indigenous squatters out.

Austerity and the Threat to Democracy Around the World

The “sequester” is actually, of course, the American form of austerity, or cutbacks in government spending during a recession. Austerity, or stingy government in Europe has kept employment extremely depressed compared to what it would have been with government stimulus, as Paul Krugman argues.
