War, colonialism, atrocities were seen as the essence of Japan, as accidental in Germany. Western racism at work: impunity for white people-not for yellow. Judged by Western colonial powers whose colonial crimes cry to the heavens relative to what Japan did. Including me, attributing Western colonialism to Japan. Sorry.

There are several parallels between the contemporary aid regime and the U.S. Marine administration. First and foremost, foreign troops are on the ground, controlling the country; the military regimes operated with complete immunity and impunity. Second, a new constitution was installed, centralizing power in the executive. Third, both occupations involved Haiti’s gold resources.

Há odiosa restrição à soberania nacional, imposta pela "troika" de credores, se os ministros gregos não têm acesso a departamentos dos próprios ministérios.

Growing up absurd came easily in North America in the 1950s and ’60s when nuclear war would alternate from sinister diplomatic bargaining chip to “the end of civilization as we know it.”... If there’s a particular feeling you’re left with at the exhibition, it’s unease. On one hand, it’s hardly a clarion call to the anti-nuke barricades; on the other, it’s no apologia for the nuclear-industrial complex, no plea to cozy up to “our friend, the atom.”

O desafio posto a cada um não é como evitar as crises. Elas são inerentes à nossa condição humana. A questão é como as enfrentamos: que lições tiramos delas e como podemos crescer com elas.
