Shutdown, first week, with home concerts


#climateemergency #cologne #politics #socialmedia

In Cologne weve just completed the first week of shutdown, with many more to come and a lockdown looming on the horizon. As long as there are neither tests nor a vaccine, the only course of action to prevent spreading the infection of an airborne virus is to maintain physical distance. Staying at home as Continue reading Shutdown, first week, with home concerts

Americans generally have barbaric, eugenic attitudes towards incarceration. We want punishment, particularly the punishment of POC, the poor, and those with mental or emotional disabilities. A permanent complaint among conservative Americans is that prisoners "have it too good." Yet those who complain the most are the least likely to be incarcerated.

So what should our attitudes be based on?

Two things:

Reformation and objective threat assessment.

Some crimes are symptoms of correctable self-destructive or antisocial behavior. Punishment for its own sake does nothing but inflict pointless suffering. Reform and rehabilitation should be the goal in these situations. However, prioritizing this goal means recognizing the incarcerated as persons, as members of society worthy of our help and resources. It will also require that we recognize our contributions to the antisocial/self-destructive behavior of others.

It might also force us to recognize the biased systems of threat assessment we use every day. For example, few seriously consider legalizing the drugs popular with POC but legalizing the drugs favored by the dominant social group seems like a no-brainer to many.

It's obviously a price worth paying. And voters knew what they were voting for. Also sovereignty is more important than surviving.

O caritas, o caritas nobis semper sit amor


#buddhism #climateaction #climateemergency #fridaysforfuture #politics #socialmedia

We must never forget that Caritas has its origin and essence in God Himself (John 1, 4:8). Caritas is the embrace of God, our Father, for every person, especially for the very last and the suffering, who take a privileged place in his heart. (His Holiness, Pope Francis, May 2019) I am deeply ashamed about Continue reading O caritas, o caritas nobis semper sit amor

Head of Basij militia, often called as butcher of Tehran has died of Corona Virus


#iran #coronavirus #IranCorona #Basij #Politics #Covid19

Finally some good news from Iran, I still remember that pig from the days in the 80s.

May him rot in hell with all his bastard friends
Coronavirus has killed a high-profile leader in Iran responsible for the U.S.-designated terrorist group Basij Forces, the Iranian news agency Tasnim confirmed. Mohammad Haj Abolghasem, a senior commander, was known as the ‘butcher of Tehran’ for his role in the bloody suppression of pro-democracy protests that began in November 2019, the Iranian exile group said.

Elizabeth #Warren just dropped out. (It was about time, if you ask me…) This narrows the Democratic presidential race down to #Bernie and #Biden. Sounds like good news for Bernie’s campaign.

Tim Leunig, who advises Rishi Sunak, has suggested ministers could look to be like Singapore

One of the most senior government advisers has said the UK does not need its farming or fishing industries, according to reports.

In comments seen by the Mail on Sunday, Dr Tim Leunig is understood to have said the food sector was “not critically important” to the country’s economy – and that agriculture and fisheries “certainly isn’t”.

So in a nutshell we're going to get a Brexit that brings no tangible benefit to anyone, makes everyone unhappy, yet keeps the Tories in power and able to continue to ruin the country. All because people thought they knew what they were voting for, while not actually knowing anything. And not even because of an ideology, just because of a method.

The indivisibility of the 52% as method in Brexit, even now

The chief of the Metropolitan police apparently thinks everyone would prefer to be locked up and safe than free and in danger.
She said "inaccurate" critics should "justify to the victims of those crimes why police should not be allowed to use tech... to catch criminals". "If an algorithm can help identify, in our criminal intelligence systems material, a potential serial rapist or killer... then I think almost all citizens would want us to use it," she said.
Yeah, umm, no ? Never mind the absurd number of false positives that this generates, wasting police time, the sheer scale of the privacy violation baffles me as to how someone can be this out of touch. I actually don't want the government knowing where I am at all times, thanks, because that's just rude. There's more to life than catching criminals.
