Tidbits and notes. Part 425

Iceland offers many benefits when it comes to bitcoin mining, among them cheapest geothermal energy and frigid air to keep machines from overheating (Block-chain servers).

Some companies are starting to test microchip implantation in employees, raising serious questions about worker autonomy, privacy, surveillance—and humanity itself.

Civil political disobedience against Lebanon Parliament (the main power that ruined the country) should go hand in hand with indirect taxes civil disobedience: stop driving (benzine, mechanic…), stop paying double energy, (for private providers), stop unnecessary mobile communication fees…

House impeachment hearings go public. Two career diplomats testify—with every major network covering the proceedings live—about allegations that Donald Trump withheld military aid from Ukraine for his own political advantage.

Graves are going green as thousands of people every year are giving up on funeral homes, formaldehyde, and coffins, and returning to nature as their forebears did—wrapped in a shroud, placed in a simple hole in the earth, with no trace of their resting place amid the birds, bees, and nematodes

A South Korean firm offers “living funerals.” The goal is to teach participants life lessons by faking their deaths.

Voici que recommence le grand Ordre des Sciecles? Quel ordre? Chaque leader, avec un tant soi peu de pouvoir, veut ramener un certain ordre qui convient a son image. Ces “ordonnances” s’intercoupent a l’infini avec un point focal: Le point ou’ le chaos commence.

Unless you associate with a sincere group (a tribe) in the  mass movement (7iraak) to control your later behavior and position, your participation will end up with no consequences

Probably a few in the Lebanese mass upheaval “7iraak” attended one of these “thousand and one night” (fa7esh) wedding of the new rich ministers and deputies. They are attending the 7iraak to absolve themselves from their sickening monstrosities.

I feel so distraught: how can so many Lebanese felt under the spell of those civil war “leaders” since 1975? Nothing in these leaders talks and speeches had any viable meaning for their future and well-being.

3 years ago, a before the President of Lebanon was elected, the USA didn’t give much damn about Iran in Lebanon, and let the Lebanese go down the drain. No, Iran is Not our problem. Rectify your your North (Sawbo al bousalat)

Depuis longtemps, les vivants du Liban partent pour mourir ailleurs, et puis quand morts, ils desirent revenir mouriri au Liban. Mort, vivant, la terre abhor le vide. Pas de Libanais? On apporte des Syriens et des Palestiniens

In 1902, 114 years ago, Amin Rihani, aLebanese immigrant living in New York, replied to the reforms of the new Ottoman Moutassarref to Mount Lebanon, Mozaffar Pasha. Rihani’s set of reforms priority was:
1) Establish public educational institutions. The religious clerics Must be forbidden to run or teach in these public schools.
2) Religious clerics must be denied interventions in any civic decisions or civic laws.
3) Public employees must submit to exams and be selected according to their capabilities.
4) Confiscate religious real estates and pay back the private owners who donated their lands.

Tidbits and notes. Part 421

Wars of choice“? And decided by the 1% elite class in the “war industry” that plunder other nations raw materials and oil.. and open market

Do you know there are 40% unemployed youth in Lebanon? This anomie system expected that most of them will find jobs overseas. It turned out that there are no jobs overseas at this junction. This militia/mafia system has to contend with all these educated youth demanding drastic changes: This is the real cause for the current mass upheaval 7iraak.

Since its independence in 1943, Lebanon successive governments and institutions totally ignored the southern region, the Bekaa3 valley and the northern regions: they were to fend for themselves to survive. The southern region had no borders with Syria and they were plagued with the “legitimate” presence of Palestinian PLO in their midst and the successive excuses for Israel to bomb their towns and force them to flee, mostly toward the Capital Beirut (al Da7iyat)

What is the main institution that ruled and controlled this fiasco in Lebanon for 30 years? It is the Parliament and all its deputies for 30 years. They all, and invariably, elected the non-changeable Nabih Berry by all the deputies. They all have to face the justice system for cooperating with this anomie system

Nothing is spontaneous. Nothing but paying jobs can organize a mass movement. And the more the content is based on abstract concepts (freedom, liberty…) the worse is the “Style” of the particular 7iraak (tent, khaymat)

The higher the indirect taxes the more outdated the political/economic system. Lebanon is the worst: a non-productive society and budget mostly based on indirect taxes that rob the citizens in every of his daily activities

In Middle-East politics, I have two invariable positions, based on daily confirmation for many decades: 1) Israel is our Existential Enemy, and 2) Greater Syria forms one Nation with One people (current Syria, Lebanon, Palestine, Jordan and Iraq)

Think with me: if you are an Ethiopian from the center of the country, how could you manage to save $400 in order to flee the country toward Djibouti, Yemen and Saudi Kingdom? Would you take this totally hazardous and and insane  route if you were Not submitted to an ethnic cleansing? I submit that the multinational agro-businesses that rent for cheap vast land and entice the peasant to flee their land? This regulated scheme has been going on for decades in Ethiopia. And how come the world community dare attribute a Nobel of Peace to the President of Ethiopia?  And why this dam on the Nile if Not to provide cheap water for the multinationals?

Same basic rule in Japan: No eye glasses are to be worn by female employees in tourism, fashion industries…

Apparently, frequently catching cold is the symptom of a transformed constitution that is getting allergic to many items and pathogens that it was previously immune of. Kind of the immune system got set on an old administrative routine and unable to cope with the exponential increase in polluters and human-made poisonous products

Let’s us Not be that confused: In every country, there is an “elite class” that managed to take roots with all the privileges that have Nothing to do with “money” as we know it. For fundamental reasons, and Not related to any rational basis, No revolution ever eliminated the elite class.

Every other “citizen” regardless of color, genders, race, financial social status… are necessarily second class, given that the Elite Class conserves its status. Sure, there are third and fourth classes… All you can do is learn and do your best to advance to the second class.
