Tidbits #55

Investors bought €1 billion in bonds (Pension funds, hedge funds, and one of Europe’s largest private banks) backed by the mafia Italy’s ’Ndrangheta group.

Karl Marx did describe his vision for the final phase of capitalism in the third volume of Das Kapital, his magnum opus. At that point, he wrote, the global market will have superseded that of any individual country, concentrating the world’s wealth into just a few very lucky hands. (Did Covid-19 pandemics revised this perspective?)

Give to Caesar what is to Caesar and to God what is to God”? A nice diplomatic statement to avoid confrontation with the Roman Empire, though it implicitly hide a most dangerous unfair and inequitable recommendation. It basically says: And give your money to the clergy and lay all your indignities and famine at God’s feet?

In antiquity female divinity (Goddess) was often associated with ambivalence and multiplicity. A reflection of nature, the Goddess embodies both the destructive power and the ability to create,

In 10 seconds Fred Rogers  said it all during his 1997 acceptance speech for a lifetime-achievement Emmy: He asked the audience to think about people who have “loved us into being”

Hattie McDaniel, winner for Best Actress in a Supporting Role for Gone With the Wind, is the first African-American to receive an Oscar. “I shall always hold it as a beacon for anything I may be able to do in the future. I sincerely hope I shall always be a credit to my race.

During the Oscar Award speech in 1978,  Vanessa Redgrave calls out “Zionist hoodlums whose behavior is an insult to the stature of Jews all over the world.”

Brutal force is meant to deny equitable and ethical negotiations

Many of the world’s biggest polluters are missing the opportunity: A letter released this week by a coalition of leading climate diplomats and economists warns that “most stimulus packages have not incorporated climate resilience into their recovery plans.” Instead, as carbon emissions head back toward pre-pandemic levels, fossil fuels are getting a rich payday.

Unbelievable: French rulers forced Haitians (This currently wrecked and forgotten State) to “compensate” them for the loss of land and slaves that came with independence, in 1804, to the tune of 90 million francs.

I say: Don’t waste your time studying the dominant religious sect in a society, just try to figure out the common denominator of this religion by studying the daily routine behavior of the various classes.

Apparently, the US military is afflicted with massive Covid-19 cases: Trump opted safe to wear his mask in his latest visit to Walter Reed hospital?

Palestinians are No longer crossing to Israel for fear of morsening Covid-19 pandemics there. Israel will No longer find anyone to build settlements anymore? Israel is begging US to dispatch what it has of masks and incubators and…to cope with this spreading pandemics.

Most Jews don’t believe God exists. US Christian Evangelical fundamentalists convinced them that their God promised them Palestine

In cold blood: Israel assassination teams enter Palestinian camps and kill young Palestinians. Every day, dozens are detained administratively for months
