Notes and tidbits posted on FB and Twitter. Part 114

Note 1: I take notes of books I read and comment on events and edit sentences that fit my style. The page is long and growing like crazy, and the sections I post contains months-old events that are worth refreshing your memory.

Adopt India as an anchor for your population computation, on the ground that more than two third of mankind conditions and life-style resemble that of the varied Indian population.

Never throw any percentage per year increases in vain: The Magic 70 rule and the horrible exponential growth will ridicule your claim.

Antitrust laws do Not apply to multinationals Monsano, Dow Agrosciences, BASF, Syngena, Bayer, and Dupont (90% market share) who have deposited more than 500 patents on agricultural genes alteration. 

“Why not” attitudes are generated when learning another language: Your mother tongue generate conservative moral behaviors

Al Jazma (boots) ma3mouleh le safe3 wajeh amthaal Bush Jr, 3oumala2 Israel wa moustawten yo3dem walad Palestinian. al tawboz moush la bawss jazmaat wa la srameh

A “Moral Entity”? Is that how multinationals are identified, accounted for, controlled and put on trials?

In last 2 weeks, viewings of my blog is over 1,000 per day

Information Theory has been expanded to swallow fields such as probability theory, computer science, statistical physics, data science, gambling theory, ruin problems, complexity, even how one deals with knowledge, epistemology.

Democrat and Republican elites and mass media bosses cover one another back in times of “emergency”? Like mass upheaval and crimes against humanity: both defend an immunity that they might one day need themselves?

Why Democrats  in 2008 refused to investigate into Bush programs of torture, warrantless eavesdropping, and the like?

Jane Mayer replied: “One complicating factor is that key members of Congress sanctioned [these activities], so many of those who might ordinarily be counted on to lead the charge are themselves compromised.”

Law professor Jonathan Turley pointed out the logical result of this bipartisan support for the crimes.

There’s no question in my mind that there is an obvious level of collusion here. We now know that the Democratic leadership knew about the illegal surveillance program almost from its inception. Even when they were campaigning about fighting for civil liberties, they were aware of an unlawful surveillance program as well as a torture program. And ever since that came out, the Democrats have been silently trying to kill any effort to hold anyone accountable because that list could very well include some of their own members.

Why all the colonial powers, England, France, Germany and USA act as if they owe anything to Israel? What Israel did to them but siphon their money, moral prestige, and lavishing abusive recriminations?

Liberalism is a financial jargon expressing the will that all financial activities must be linked through Banks, directly linked to one of the 8 families related to the Rothschild  House (hoarding $300 trillion). It fits the saying “Little cloud, you may wander any which way you want, where you rain your proceeds will return to me” (Harun Rashid, Abbasid caliph)

Liberalism has been coined to express forms of economic activities, mainly in exploiting former colonial States by denying them import taxes on products that are subsidized by the developing States, by facilitating financial extortion schemes on the weaker people, by the rights to ruin entire economic bases for the benefit of the richest oligarchies inside and outside State boundaries, by allowing monopolistic enterprises, cancelling out any forms of competitions in the developing States… Dismantling well-run and profitable State institutions, and Privatizing them (read financed by Banks)

The consensus mantra that the only thing that matters is to “make sure it never happens again” is simply the standard cry of every criminal desperate for escape: “I promise not to do it again if you don’t punish me this time“.

And the Beltway battle cry of “look to the future, not the past!” is what all political power systems tell their subjects to do when they want to flush their own crimes down the memory hole.

Popular work resonates with the people who already like what you do.

Viral work is what happens when the audience can’t stop talking about what you did.

Transparent accounting: Based on revenue, away with totally biased Net Profit gimmick

Revenue is the one item in the balance sheet that no corporation is about to cheat on, not even gang and drug criminal organizations. Why?

Note 2: If you are Not tri-lingual, you will stumble on Arabic notes, written in Latin characters and with numbers representing vocals Not available in Latin languages.

Our world of appearances, amid symbolic non assimilated meaning, is linked to the invisible: everything that our senses have  captured but failed to interpret it for our survival sake.

How many of collateral damaged people are reduced to be sleepless creatures howling in night dreams?

A single cop in a police car remembers the golden rule “ Time is on our side. There is no urgency for fast-breaking situations...”

When males are forced to participate in the daily maintenance tasks of life, external pre-emptive wars of bored people will drop substantially.

The multiple structural chains that females have to get liberated from are Not giving humanity a reprieve for a genuine war of practical worthy values

The Chinese province of Xingjian borders Russia, Mongolia, Kazakhstan, Kirghistan, Tajikistan, Afghanistan, Pakistan, India, and Tibet. Th Ouigour (Moslem) in this strategic location for the Silk Road are being forcefully transferred.

Liberalism is a political jargon used by the colonial powers to throw smokescreen on outright economic embezzlement and coercion on developing States.

Liberalism is also a financial jargon expressing the will that all financial activities must be linked through Banks, directly linked to one of the 8 families related to the Rothschild House (hoarding $300 trillion). It fits the saying “Little cloud, you may wander any which way you want, where you rain your proceeds will return to me” (Harun Rashid, Abbasid caliph)

Les idees d’ un intellectuel existent deja. Les exprimees est un procesus  lent de persistence et d’ endurance pour les clarifiees a soi-meme. L’ engagement et la communication (sharing) font parti de ce procesus.

Les cultures ancrees sur les expressions religieuses se meurent sans des revolutions cherchant a decouvrir la part individuelle de l’ homme dans l’ existence.

Social and political engagement and communication have the task of adding complexity to ideas before attempting to simplifying the expression to clarify them to ourselves

Si une generation nouvelle ne parvient pas a creer de nouveaux mots et expressions, c’ est que la culture se meurt.

This new proportional election law in Lebanon is generating wide alliances in each traditional “leader’s” province. At least verbally, before the election time hits the shit.

Toutes les liaisons sont dangereuses, quand on veut bien s’en apercevoir.

Ce serait si plaisant si on peut et sait observer les diverses sensations de douleur et de plaisir sans agir sur les faits recueillis

Jamais la force d’ etre independent est dissociee de comportement masochist.

Les consequences de son comportement sont feministes, meme si ses intentions ne le sont pas. Ce qui me va tres bien.

Notre independence de celui qu’ on aime n’ est pas si evident. Surtout lorsque l’ autre ne sait pas combien j’ en depends

Je me fais confiance en apprenant. Je ne lui fais pas confiance: Je l’ aime.

A little bit more power can snatch a Gold medal. In existential struggles, just a bit of power can overcome an enemy.

La femme n’a que ses chaines a perdre? Et aussi toutes les minorites qui s’attachent a leurs myths pour survivre. Donc la femme a plusieus chaines entrecroisees pour s’ emanciper.
Evaluating level of individual power in games is Not reduced to physical measures. Endurance, persistence, training procedures and the will to snatch a Gold are Not tangible measures.
Any organization that adopts the slogan: “Obey and then ask questions” is a mafia-oriented association
It is your responsibility Never to give order to anyone unable to reflect on the consequences of your order.
 
Dissequer les reflets indecidables des exceptions humaines, en marge d’ une logique universelle qui se trouve mieux confirmee, est le conformism le plus dangereux de la dissection

Oxymoron, Liberty, Liberal, Liberalism, Libertine… And Is Liberalism in Lebanese a Myth?

You think that the term Liberalism means some kind of liberty in choices, liberation from constraints, freedom from outside intervention,  freedom of expression, rights to gather, “do as you please” in your decision and actions…

Nothing of the sort.

The terms liberal and Liberalism have various jargons in politics, economy, and finance that are not related to the social wishes and wants.

Liberalism is a political jargon used by the colonial powers to throw smokescreen on outright economic embezzlement and coercion on developing States.

Liberalism has been coined to express forms of economic activities, mainly in exploiting former colonial States by denying them import taxes on products that are subsidized by the developing States, by facilitating financial extortion schemes on the weaker people, by the rights to ruin entire economic bases for the benefit of the richest oligarchies inside and outside State boundaries, by allowing monopolistic enterprises, cancelling out any forms of competitions in the developed States… Dismantling well-run and profitable State institutions, and Privatizing them (read financed by Banks)…

Liberalism is not Libertine life-style. Saudi Arabia is far more into Libertine way of life than Lebanon within enclosed palaces and special closed clubs of emirs and royal family members…

Life in Lebanon slowly but surely resets the dial on anyone’s “normality” barometer. You adjust to power cuts at home, at work, and in public places. You grow used to headlines constantly predicting impending war.

You even learn to laugh these off, once near-crises have passed you by.  You stop thinking twice about buying $12 cocktails while a refugee child stands outside the bar, selling Chiclets for one hundredth the price of your shoes. I’m not proud of this, but all of these things have become my new normal.

Michelle  Ghoussoub posted this July 12, 2013 on NOW: The Myth of Lebanese Liberalism

(with minor editing to match my style of writing)

Perhaps out of self-preservation, there is one thing I have never come to terms with: my inferior status as a woman.

The Myth of Lebanese Liberalism

In Lebanon, we don’t have it all that bad. (At least in the Christian dominated urban areas)

We can drive, dress as we like, study what we wish and have successful and fulfilling careers. But these norms should not be hailed as some kind of liberal victory. Rather as minimal requirements for a State that at least tries to manage itself “democratically”.

These so-called modern practices did nothing to help Roula Yaacoub when she was brutally murdered, allegedly by a husband who beat her regularly, and who remains a free man.

It frankly doesn’t mean much that women can dress provocatively and order a drink when their husbands can also legally rape them. Nor should we feel empowered by our right to date freely (within our religions, of course) when any woman who has lost her virginity is treated as damaged goods, or worse.

No society whose laws reflect the belief that a woman’s moral compass lies somewhere between her legs can logistically advance in any capacity.

If anything, Lebanon’s toxic mix of sexual objectification and repression enhances the extent to which women are seen as lesser beings.

Expected to remain simultaneously desirable and chaste, all sexual agency disappears when women are pressured to change their appearance to please men without being entitled to any fulfillment of their own. The narrative of Lebanon’s plastic surgeries – from breast enhancements to reconstructive hymen procedures – has been so well documented that it borders on cliché. If anything, it reflects the extremity of a country that marinates in superficiality, as half the population lacks basic rights.

This by no means implies that the situation is much better across the region, or in some of the world’s most developed countries.

While the horrific mass sexual assaults on women in Egypt have rightfully been vilified by international media, rape culture and restrictive laws in regards to women’s health continue to surface in the United States.

Hell, a video of Dustin Hoffman having an on-camera breakdown as he discusses his epiphany that society has “brainwashed” him against talking to ugly women has recently gone viral on the web.

But when pacifist feminists are threatened at gunpoint, and a mother of five is brutally murdered by a husband who then retains custody of her children, Lebanon may just take the cake in terms of ironic gender politics. And that should never pass as “normal” for any of us.
