I think there's no safe way to use primitive tools (like the ones we have these days) for people who do not understand their inner working.

#BigTech lock them in chains by telling them that #Informatics can be easy and for free, but what looks easy is just a way to enslave you.

A more honest approach would be to say "Informatics is simple, but it cannot be easy until you learn it."

Like it or not, there is no way out.

Let strangers chain up you hands and necks and you will still be able to try to escape #slavery.

Let them chain up your mind, and you will never realize you are a slave.

African Slaves in America

During the slavery era in America, if anyone could afford to buy a slave or two, and they were male and female, the children born would be born into slavery. The children would be considered property. In this way slave owners "increased their herd" of human property and workers, that could also sell and trade.
Slave owners sought to make their enslaved completely dependent on them through a system of restrictive codes. They were usually prohibited from learning to read and write, and their behavior and movement was restricted.

Jonathan P. Baird: The 1619 Project and a more informed view of slavery

Possibly some readers have followed the controversy over the New York Times’ 1619 Project, an effort to take a new look at the history of slavery in America. 1619 refers to the date the first black slaves were brought to the shores of America.

After the Times launched the project in August, conservatives freaked out. Among others, former congressman and Fox News contributor Newt Gingrich argued the project was a “lie” and propaganda. National Review editor Rich Lowry stated that the essays presented an “odious and reductive lie” that “racism is the essence of America.” The general criticism raised by conservatives was that the 1619 Project was attempting to divide and delegitimize America.

The conservatives seem deeply uneasy about looking under the rock that is American slavery. Accompanying a fear of this history is the desire to maintain an innocence about the American past. We all grew up with the triumphalist narrative that focuses on heroic American moments. From the Founding Fathers to Abraham Lincoln to defeating fascism in World War II, there are undeniable heroics.

However, fear of history is dangerous and can lead to the promotion of illusions. It is past time that we, as a society, look harder into the history of slavery because that experience still shapes our world. Investigating slavery is like staring into the heart of darkness. There is a desire to look away.

The truth is that there has been an unwillingness to examine the history. In schools I attended, the subject of slavery was largely passed over. I don’t think that is too different from the experience of most Americans.

Let me put out some ideas about slavery that I have gleaned from my own exploration. […]

On the left, there is the slave-trade centres, on the right - the states that existed prior to the epoch of the Europeans’ sea exploration. Correlations are total: slaves were delivered only therefrom where there was statehood of feudal type.
It means that black workers were delivered approximately in the same order as serfs were sold in Europe. Nobody did not run with a lasso in the jungles to catch a victim; black peasants were simply given the order, and they walked up on rule of the ships of their new misters.

Слева - центры работорговли, справа - государства до эпохи плаваний европейцев. Корреляции тотальные: рабов поставляли только оттуда, где уже была государственность, причем, феодального типа.
Это означает, что чернокожих работников поставляли примерно в том же порядке, в каком в Европе происходила продажа крепостных. Никто ни за кем по джунглям с лассо не бегал; черным крестьянам просто отдавали приказ, и они шли грузиться на корабли своих новых господ.

There are numerous evidences that Moslems from Spain and the Western Africa appeared in America at least five centuries before Columbus did, in particular, during rule of the caliph Abdul-Rahman III Umayyad (929 961).
The historian and geographer Abu-al-Hasan Ali ibn Al-Huseyn Al-Masudi (871-957) wrote in his book “Gold Placers and Mines of Jewelry” that during the rule of the Caliph of Spain Abdulla Ibn Muhammad (888-912), Hashhash ibn Saed ibn Asvad - a Moslem from Cordoba - floated from Delba (Palos) in 889 year, crossed the Atlantic, reached the unknown territory (Ard Majhoola) and come back with incredible treasures.
Leo Wiener, a well-known American historian, a linguist, a specialist in the problems of linguistic interference, from the Harvard University wrote in his book “Africa and America Discovery” (1920) that Columbus knew perfectly well about presence of representatives of the tribe Mandinka in the New World, and that they had spread along the Caribbean basin and territories accessible to them.
In 1920s Leo Wiener composed three volumes of linguistic coincidence in the languages of Indians and Africans. One more volume was added by the Frenchman G.Covais in 1930. Thorough studying of lexicon of various languages led Wiener to the conclusion that “the African influence on the American continent could not appear before XI century as many Mandinka words in the Pre-Columbian layers of the American Indian languages possess obvious traces of the Arabian influence”.
When Hernan Cortes invaded Mexico, his call was “Santiago Matamoros!” (Saint Jago, beat moors!). Here it would be necessary to tell that Saint Jago (Apostle Jacob, Jago-Moorstruggler) to whom soldiers addressed, was one of the most significant saints of the Catholic church structures of Latin America. This apostle sacrificed all his life for the war with moors and Mamelukes, appearing in front of Christian armies and helping to kill Moslems, - basically, in America.
I.I.Komarova writes in hi book that after Baiano’s death, the leader of the Islamic opposition in Panama Spaniards initiated efforts to destroy any mention of Islam. Modern Panama history books try not to mention the fact of Islamic presence at the early period of the country history.
A Catholic priest Juan Lorente directly argues that the Saint Inquisition has withdrawn ALL books about America. The history of the continent exploration, as a matter of fact, was entirely rewritten and changed.

Имеются многочисленные свидетельства, что мусульмане из Испании и Западной Африки появились в Америке по крайней мере за пять столетий до Колумба, в частности, во время правления калифа Абдул-Рахмана III Умайяда (929– 961).
Историк и географ Абу-л-Хасан Али ибн ал-Хусейн ал-Масуди (871–957) написал в своей книге «Золотые россыпи и рудники драгоценностей», что во время правления халифа Испании Абдуллы Ибн Мухаммада (888–912) Хашхаш ибн Саед ибн Асвад – мусульманин из Кордовы – поплыл из Дельба (Палос) в 889 году, пересёк Атлантику, достиг неизвестной территории (Ard Majhoola) и возвратился с невероятными сокровищами.
Известный американский историк, лингвист и языковед, специалист по проблемам лингвистической интерференции из Гарвардского университета Лео Винер в книге «Африка и открытие Америки» (1920) написал, что Колумб хорошо знал о присутствии представителей племени мандинка в Новом Свете, и что они распространились по Карибскому бассейну и открытым им территориям.
20-х годах Лео Винер составил три тома лингвистических совпадений в языках индейцев и африканцев. Ещё один том добавил к ним в 1930 году француз Г. Ковэ. Основательное изучение лексики различных языков привело Винера к заключению, что «африканское влияние на американский континент не могло сказаться ранее XI века, так как множество встречаемых мандингских слов в доколумбовых пластах индейских языков носит явные следы арабского влияния».
Когда Эрнан Кортес вошел в Мексику, его кличем было «Santiago Matamoros!» (Святой Яго, бей мавров!). Здесь надо бы сказать, что Святой Яго (апостол Яков, он же Яго-Мавробоец), к которому обращались воины, - один из наиболее значительных святых в католических структурах Латинской Америки. Этот апостол всю жизнь положил на войну с маврами и мамелюками, являясь христианским войскам и помогая убивать мусульман, – в основном, в Америке.
И. И. Комарова пишет, что после смерти Байано, лидера исламского сопротивления в Панаме испанцы предприняли усилия, чтобы разрушить любое упоминание об исламе. Сегодняшние книги по истории Панамы стараются не упоминать факта исламского присутствия в ранней истории страны.
Священник-католик Хуан Льоренте прямо пишет, что Святая Инквизиция изъяла ВСЕ книги об Америке. История освоения континента была, по сути, переписана целиком.

Thirssur Pooram controversy turns spotlight on captive elephants in Kerala's temple festivals

Animal rights groups say the festival season puts a huge amount of pressure on the state’s captive elephants who do not receive adequate rest for several months at a time.


[…]

The festival season is also particularly stressful for elephants because they have to be transported from one venue to another. For this, they are often loaded onto trucks and shackled, and have to remain that way on long road journeys without much sleep or food

Animal rights activists say inadequate food and rest affects the digestive system and lungs of elephants and eventually kills them. “More than 30 elephants have died in the last 18 months,” said an activist on condition of anonymity.
