Only rebellion will prevent an ecological apocalypse


George Monbiot (The Guardian)

No one is coming to save us. Mass civil disobedience is essential to force a political response.

Had we put as much effort into preventing environmental catastrophe as we’ve spent on making excuses for inaction, we would have solved it by now. Everywhere I look, I see people engaged in furious attempts to fend off the moral challenge it presents.

The commonest current excuse is this: “I bet those protesters have phones/go on holiday/wear leather shoes.” In other words, we won’t listen to anyone who is not living naked in a barrel, subsisting only on murky water. Of course, if you are living naked in a barrel we will dismiss you too, because you’re a hippie weirdo. Every messenger, and every message they bear, is disqualified on the grounds of either impurity or purity. (...)

The New York Times: Opinion | Oliver Sacks: The Healing Power of Gardens (By OLIVER SACKS)


 
why you gotta be so #controlling, Dems? Here's their plan, in case you can't figure it out on your own:
  • "health warning" label on guns. No "sane" person would violate a health warning....
  • if you own a gun in spite of the warning, you must have #mental issues (not sane)
  • #redflag law: take away the #guns from the insane people who own guns
Illinois Democrats: exporting their superb record on gun safety to everywhere since whenever. #sarcasm

The 15 Laws of Meeting Power

Such a referee will even occasionally allow a fight to spiral dangerously out of control in order to exhaust the participants before stepping in. A ham-handed referee on a power trip gets in the way of resolution and forces the participants to waste some effort in cutting him/her out of the loop (101 on how to do this: undercut their credibility, draw in a different referee, collude with your opponent to escalate the tension beyond the amateur referee’s control).

In a formal context, a LOT is determined by how well the chairperson and the room can see you and how well you can see the rest of the room. At Telluride, because of the way chairs were arranged (in semicircular rings rather than rows) I chose to sit near the back, but in a very visible portion of the back. Not because I am a typical back row “silent observer with one wise remark” kind, but because I can see and be seen. The benefit of being seen is obvious: your raised hand can rarely be overlooked, and it is easy to dominate the floor when it is your

Lately I've been trying to read what I feel has something to do with the relationship between sexuality and ritualistic performances; in this case, about dress codes, something I really despise; it's interesting to see how females can generate (very counterproductive) 'attacks' between them when talking a about that. I have an idea, living in Mexico, I've saw how female peers slut shame based on clothing, but in a more common, rude way; I think is has something to do with the Catholicism and a more subtle, normal (whatever that means) conservatism (nothing like in the USA). This paragraph caught my attention (Alt-Right folks should research more that lines):
Interestingly, one of the groups that was least inclined to discuss and denigrate girls’ revealing dress was the group of new immi

On the Tudors and the first forms of PR


One such portrait, by German master and Henry’s official painter Hans Holbein the Younger, features in a new exhibition at Bendigo Art Gallery in Victoria which examines the power of official royal likenesses. The king’s steely expression in the picture is inescapable, the jewels with which he is adorned and the finery of his clothes speak to an imposing figure with ultimate power.

It was one of Holbein’s portraits of Henry VIII – a commanding, full-body portrait that was later lost, though copies of it still exist – that radically transformed what the royal portrait could be. Until the mid-15th century, portraits didn’t look at all like their subjects, but as England embraced the Renaissance, portraiture evolved too.

These portraits, showing a happy, apparently perfect nuclear family, helped to shape the royal family – as opposed to just the monarch herself – as a highly visible, marketable concept. That concept continues today, especially with prin... show more

Das Zweite Britische Empire (Deutsch)

Beim Untergang des Empires wurde ein weltweites Netz von Offshore-Gebieten geschaffen, um die finanziellen Interessen der City of London zu bewahren. Deren Zweck? Das Verbergen enormen Vermögens hinter obskuren finanziellen Strukturen auf entfernten Inseln. Heute liegt bis zur Hälfte des globalen Offshore-Vermögens in britischen Offshore-Territorien.
Wie ist das zustande gekommen? Welchen Einfluss hat die Offshore-Welt heute auf uns alle? Dieser Dokumentarfilm erforscht und ermittelt dies auf eindrückliche Weise.

WARNING: this rabbit hole is deep

The Spider’s Web: Britain’s Second Empire, is a documentary film that shows how Britain transformed from a colonial power into a global financial power. At the demise of empire, City of London financial interests created a web of secrecy jurisdictions that captured wealth from across the globe and hid it in a web of offshore islands. Today, up to half of global offshore wealth is hidden in British jurisdictions and Britain and its dependencies are the largest global players in the world of international finance.

There seems to be some kind of #drama going on in the #diaspora world. I am mildly curious. I get these snippets of #outrage conversations between people, and they are #devoid of #context. All I know is that there is some #tribe attacking some other tribe over something or other. These things flare up, and then they go away.
