Immaginiamo un popolo che dia per scontato che ci siano due, solo due, versanti a qualunque contesa; uno giusto, uno sbagliato; ove non ci sia compromesso, la si giochi a duello, e chi vince ne decide il risultato. Questo copione controlla la gente. Potere al popolo, suona bene, ma che genere di popolo?

Les accords de libre-échange (TTIP, CETA, TISA et tous les autres accords bilatéraux et multilatéraux sur le commerce et les investissements), concoctés « discrètement » depuis 2013 et largement contestés ces derniers temps, sont-ils compatibles avec les mesures ratifiées dans le Traité de Lisbonne par les pays constituant l’Union Européenne ? Il semble bien que non. Car, quoi que l’on pense de ce Traité de Lisbonne (qui a été signé de façon parfaitement antidémocratique), celui-ci reconnaît pourtant explicitement le principe de précaution.

13 Feb 2017 - When I was afraid, you taught me how to keep going. When I was lost, you showed me the way. To those who have kept me alive for the past six years: minutes after President Obama announced the commutation of my sentence, the prison quickly moved me out of general population and into the restrictive housing unit where I am now held.

16 Feb 2017 - For all their dysfunction, the Republican Senate and House have managed to act with lightning speed in striking down a sensible Obama administration rule designed to stop people with severe mental problems from buying guns. They did the gun lobby’s bidding in passing a regressive measure that President Trump is expected to sign.

16 Feb 2017 - As the leaders of the USA and Russia, the two countries with the largest nuclear arsenals, you have the grave responsibility of assuring that nuclear weapons are not used — or their use overtly threatened — during your period of leadership. We, the undersigned, implore you to commence negotiations to reduce the dangers of a nuclear war, by mistake or malice, and immediately commit your respective governments to the realizable objective of a nuclear weapons-free world.

With each new settlement, the prospect of peace and the formation of a Palestinian state become even more unattainable. Israel is above international law, or so it seems. On Dec 23, the United Nations Security Council passed resolution 2334, re-affirming the illegality of Israeli settlements.

What surprises me about the poll results isn’t that lots of Americans like the ban — but that so many Americans don’t. Regular people have lives to lead and can’t investigate complicated issues in detail. Instead they usually take their cues from leaders they trust. And given what politicians across U.S. political spectrum say about terrorism, Trump’s executive order makes perfect sense. There are literally no national-level American politicians telling a story that would help ordinary people understand why Trump’s goals are both horrendously counterproductive and morally vile.

L’umanità si trova di fronte a un bivio della sua evoluzione. Possiamo scegliere la via dell’”Unità” (“Oneness”), consapevoli del nostro essere parte di Un Pianeta, di Una Umanità, e vivere celebrando le nostre molte diversità, interconnesse attraverso legami di compassione, interdipendenza, solidarietà.

Trump and Putin have an important opportunity to work together against international terrorism, nuclear proliferation, drug trafficking and other threats. That chance may be missed if journalists and politicians persist in vilifying Putin and harassing Trump with charges that he is Putin’s puppet.

Sea ice around Antarctica has shrunk to the smallest annual extent on record, preliminary U.S. satellite data showed on Tuesday [14 Feb 2017]. In many recent years, the average extent of sea ice around Antarctica has tended to expand despite the overall trend of global warming. People skeptical of findings by climate scientists have often pointed to Antarctic sea ice as evidence against global warming.

Caro Nanni, so che in qualche modo ti posso parlare, che queste modeste parole rivolte a te non sono una finzione. Quando festeggiammo gli 80 anni di Galtung mi dicesti che speravi di vivere a lungo, perché sentivi di avere tanto lavoro da fare, per la pace giusta nonviolenta. Abbiamo raccolto e stiamo continuando l’opera che tu hai avviata, che hai accompagnata, a cui hai dato gambe per camminare.

Tom, at the end of the radio program this morning, many of your listeners will surely have come to the mistaken conclusion that the solution to the vast problem of pervasive adolescent female sadness isn’t to logically address the obvious potentially preventable causes of mental ill health. I got the impression that the solution was to get them seem by a prescribing psychiatrist and “get them treated with drugs!”

16 February, 2017 - All major French political parties were targeted for infiltration by the CIA's human ("HUMINT") and electronic ("SIGINT") spies in the seven months leading up to France's 2012 presidential election. The revelations are contained within three CIA tasking orders published today by WikiLeaks as context for its forth coming CIA Vault 7 series.
