If you encountered a message about the site being "not trustworthy" - what happened is Kafkaesque. Our SSL certificate, a modest security tool, needed renewal. It couldn't get done because our actual security on site is so strong the ssl message could not penetrate, nor could the company hosting our servers. Talk about insane computer frustration. And on top of that, due to other technical difficulties, we still can't use our overlay facility or our bulk email, even now. This means for now Sustainers are not receiving commentaries. If that isn't you, perhaps you would like to become a Z Sustainer to help out.



Welcome to ZCommunications. The site has ZNet and ZMag content, topic and place pages under the Focuses link in the top menu - reading lists and whole books, debates, interviews, multimedia, Blogs, Forums, comments, a Store, Sustainer program, WISC, and more.

  • Buhle: Two Books On Labor

  • Hunziker: America’s Purple Politics

    America’s illusory two-party system is so badly corrupted and perverted with such lowly debauchery, undermining any semblance of democracy, it is like a reign of terror that has emerged underneath people’s noses. There is no election when both parties are one. It’s Purple Politics buttoned up. Deep down, people understand this rigged system only too well.
