Tidbits and notes posted on FB and Twitter. Part 186

Note: I take notes of books I read and comment on events and edit sentences that fit my style. I pa attention to researched documentaries and serious links I receive. The page is long and growing like crazy, and the sections I post contains a month-old events that are worth refreshing your memory.

Reporter a plustard le temps d’etre heureux n’a rien avoir avec l’ intelligence, contrairement a ce que les experiments le confirme: Il y a des variation a la notion d’etre “heureux”

Comment etre heureux par ne rien faire? Comme par enchainer des pensees rejouissante? Ca demande tant d’imagination que c’est une facon de travailler en plein regime

The visual of these people completely wrapped in a hammock as in an egg is very relaxing indeed.

It turned out that the Koran:
1. Never mentions an Islamic State
2. Never mentions al Shari3a
3. Never believed in miracles (How more rational it can be?)
4. Had no punctuations whatsoever: it could be interpreted widely by any educated person
Whatever organizational or administrative traditions were established during the administration of the City-State of Medina and later on

Plato said “Permitting random marriages constitute impiety in a happy City.  We will legalize sane unions that are more advantageous to the aristocratic class.  We want sane offspring of the elite men and women to render high quality services to the Republic”. Can’t blame colonial behaviors, Nazism and the Eugenic elite classes as the precursor by worshiping Ancient Greek philosophers

The mentality of the Lebanese is Not that hard to comprehend: Before the emergence of Hezbollah, of Islamic Iran orientation, Lebanese, regardless of religious sect or caste, were ready to accept a  (whether western State or Egyptian or Saudi Kingdom). Just to establish infrastructures and facilities so they can resume their chaotic individualistic behaviors.

On porte partout l’estampille de la mort, sauf les cailloux

Private multinational aids for development?  To whom charity profit?

Five centuries later, and you realize that nothing changed fundamentally in the relationship between the stronger and weaker nations.  Do you recall the documented horror stories of colonial behaviors?

The religious institutions, Christians or others, sent their scouts of clerics to countries, programmed to be captured and colonized.  The clerics played the role of the benevolent poor people and taught a few indigenes their language and their religion in order to hire potential translators and friends to the invading military armies.

Nothing changed since then.

Currently, benevolent organizations belonging to religious institutions, precede private multinational companies to countries for plundering raw materials.   The clerics prepare the ground and the private multinational, supported by their governments, bribe and pressure politicians for securing ridiculous contract terms in poor developing States.

The private multinationals pollute the environment and the benevolent religious organization build makeshift hospitals and primary schools around local communities affected by the pollution in order to “face-save” the criminal activities of their motherland citizens.  Hospitals that are useless to curing irreversible diseases.

For example, the mining multinational Vedante extracts bauxite (aluminum) in open fields, causing irreversible damages to local ecosystems in central India.  The benevolent religious NGO’s, funded by the multinational company, step in to showing the good side of evil activities.

Another example, Coca-Cola depleted the phreatic nap of potable water in India and then launch a campaign for supplying potable water to primary schools in Kenya!

Public aides from superpower States are no better.

After paying off the personnel and management of their citizens hired to the “development project” and the amounts earmarked to cancelling non recoverable sovereign debts, the effective direct aid to the poor country is almost negligible.

The G8 promised in 2002 to earmark 0.7% of their GNP to developing States; this ratio dropped to 0.2% in effective terms.

Nothing changed in 5 centuries.

How do you expect private multinational enterprises, which are not liable to local communities, to behave in generating quick profits?

All they do is flaunting sustainable standards and requirement for local development.
