The Strange Case of Versailles

#Martin-van-Creveld: The Treaty of Versailles, the hundredth anniversary of which will be remembered in June of this year, has attracted more than its share of historical debate. What has not been said and written about it?

Enemies of free speech seek to shut down dissent


“We need to go on the offense,” Milstein said two years ago in response to a question about how to defeat BDS, the Palestinian-led movement that targets Israel over its military occupation of Palestinian land, building of illegal settlements, and denial of Palestinian refugee rights. “We should teach them that anyone that attacks us, there is a price, there is accountability. We need to go on the attack.”
~ Adam Milstein (AIPAC)

On accents in the entertainment industry


If it happened today, however, Connery might feel the need to make it clear from the get-go that his paternal grandparents were of Irish descent. An actor’s automatic licence to fake an accent is now increasingly in doubt. Casting agents are under growing pressure to find talent that matches the background of a character if they want to avoid accusations of cultural appropriation, or even, in some cases, the charge of outright mockery.

hether driven by a wish to create more work for disabled actors, ethnic minorities and transgender performers, or perhaps by a more sophisticated awareness among viewers since the international cinema and box-set boom, there is a powerful new imperative in the acting profession: keep it real.

“Nobody who has talent should be kept out of the acting profession. And nobody, even white, middle-class males, should be prevented from playing any part,” said Simon Callow this weekend. The acclaimed actor added that this does not mean he begrudges seeing w... show more

With Malice Toward None


https://twitter.com/18965459/status/1102640452686266368

A remarkable speech by a remarkable president. (Full text https://t.co/646JWywaUF). https://t.co/K0Mgjupvxn

The concluding passage from Lincoln’s second inaugural address, a little over a month before he was assassinated:
With malice toward none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in, to bind up the nation’s wounds, to care for him who shall have borne the battle and for his widow and his orphan, to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace among ourselves and with all nations.

Alternative to Youtube and the Censorship Algorithm: https://www.brighteon.com/


Disclaimer: free speech is welcome on Brighteon much like on Diaspora. You have the power to choose what you want to watch, and what you don't. There is a reasonable set of community guidelines: https://legal.brighteon.com/CommunityGuidelines.html
You can set up your own video channel for free, and you will NOT be snuffed out by all-powerful algorithms. You grow your channel as you see fit. If you are banned and censored on Youtube, there is an opportunity for you here.
One more thing: on the surface there are many political videos on Brighteon. If you like those, good. If you don't, there are many more non-political videos about natural health, religion, self defense, etc. Find what you like.
I am not sponsored or paid to say this 😀

On ideophones


How and why do ideophones do this? Despite their prevalence in many languages, ideophones were once considered linguistic oddities of marginal interest. As a consequence, linguists, psychologists and neuroscientists have only recently started to unlock their secrets.

Ideophones are more prevalent in some languages than others. English has relatively few; by comparison, more than 4,000 Japanese words are classed as ideophones, meaning that they’re a hugely important part of anyone’s vocabulary. They can also be found across Asia, Africa, South America and Australasia. (My personal favourite ideophone is ribuy-tibuy, which means ‘the sound, sight, or motion of a person’s buttocks rubbing together as they walk’ in Mundari, spoken in Eastern India and Bangladesh.)

Documents obtained by the New York Times show how the social giant’s international content moderation strategy is dictated by thousands of pages of PowerPoint presentations and spreadsheets that “sometimes clumsily” tell thousands of moderators what to allow and what to delete. The revelation raises deep questions about the future of Facebook’s role in international discourse — especially in the wake of damaging revelations about how the platform allowed propaganda during the 2016 U.S. presidential elections.

The only way to hold #Facebook responsible for allowing for #hate #speech, online #trolls, and #Holocaust deniers on its platform is for us to quit.
