          Time’s (Almost) Reversible Arrow
    
          January 31, 2016

          The Silvertown Strike - A Partisan History
    
          January 31, 2016
    
          The bourgeoisie does not rule by force alone; it does so by inculcating its ideas and values—its ideology—into the population at large. It follows, then, as the GMB’s John Callow argues in his preface to Silvertown, that “history, like politics…is a fiercely contested ideological space.” Historians who claim to be impartial and “value-free” are not to be trusted—or they are simple.

          Chicago Police Hid Mics, Destroyed Dashcams To Block Audio, Records Show
    
          January 31, 2016
    
          Chicago Police Department officers stashed microphones in their squad car glove boxes. They pulled out batteries. Microphone antennas got busted or went missing. And sometimes, dashcam systems didn’t have any microphones at all, DNAinfo Chicago has learned.  Police officials last month blamed the absence of audio in 80 percent of dashcam videos on officer error and “intentional destruction.”

          January 31, 2016
    
          In a not-so-distant future, Norway has elected a radical branch of the Green Party, and its charismatic new prime minister shuts down the country’s supply of oil and gas to continental Europe. Despite an impending climate crisis, the EU is none too pleased with this overnight weaning from petrol, and invites Russia to offer Norway “technical assistance” in restoring its fossil fuel production. Russian gunships descend on Norway’s oil platforms.
