The attack occurred in a rebel stronghold in Jharkhand State. Thousands of people have been killed in the past decade in violence involving Maoists, who claim they represent India’s dispossessed, particularly indigenous tribal groups.” </span></p> Mon, 03 Mar 2014 21:00:00 +0000 Sue Ginn 15398 at http://mtpr.org Robert McChesney - The Internet, Capitalism, & Democracy http://mtpr.org/post/robert-mcchesney-internet-capitalism-democracy <p>1/27/2014 - Remember the information superhighway and all the hype about the Internet? The wonders of the Digital Age would be liberating. A utopian bliss was at hand. Now it sometimes looks more like a dystopia. A handful of monopolies dominate the Internet. Google garners 97% of the mobile search market. Microsoft's operating system is used by 90% of the world's computers. Capitalism has colonized cyberspace, spurred the collapse of journalism, independent bookstores and many, many jobs.
