Notes and tidbits posted on FB and Twitter. Part 122

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.

Competence involves the humanity required to connect with other people, in real time. It requires emotional labor, not merely compliance with sequences and rules.

“If I don’t agree with myself, who will do it? If I only agree with myself, who am I?”

When people begin to measure themselves only in comparison to others (“How did I rank?”) then you need to accept the impact of those outsiders choices. Is the Culture of scarcity forcing on us competition? And in periods of abundance, can we change our mentality?

Think of the blockade of Iran since 1983.

Think of the blockade and sanctions against the Syrian people since 2011.

Think of the recent blockade of the Western African countries suffering from the Ebola epidemic: No border crossing, no meaningful trades with these poor countries…

Think of the siege of Homs, Aleppo, the Yarmouk Palestinian camp near Damascus, and the latest of Kobani (Ain Arab city)

Think of the conditions and the 3 consecutive preemptive wars on Gaza, this enclave constituting a big concentration camp

There is No average wars.  Simply because the distribution of wars follow the power law: How can we study a distribution of casualties when we add the WWI ad WWII wars or the genocides committed during Stalin, Cambodia, Rwanda., and the enduring civil wars in the Congo for the last 3 decades and yet not terminated, the situation in Sudan, Yemen, Afghanistan..?

Kidnapped French Rochot writes: “My life cycle revolved around two bottles: one bottle for drinking and the other one to urinate in.

Compulsive hoarding is a serious psychological difficulty which is not very well understood. It is characterized by extreme difficulty getting rid of belongings and excessive gathering of items to the extent that someone’s normal daily life is impacted. ( I know first hand from my mother and brother-in-law: It is an expensive and frustrating sickness that plague everyone around them)

A single State, confident in its far less loaded Crime Against Humanity record, must institute its International Court on State crimes against humanity. Many former officials have nightmares and want a court to stand trial and empty their loaded memories of bad decisions and going-along.

Soon, the International Court on Crimes against humanity will snatch the power to demand powerful nations to stand trial. All those Silent Majority will bow to the verdict and pay retribution.

 Si le Liban, depuis des décennies, ne traite pas ses propres poubelles, cela n’est pas la faute de Riyad ou Téhéran ou d’Israel ou de USA. 

Swapping wives in Saudi royal family. It is all done within the Wahhabi religious sect forms: The monarch or an emir from Al Saud divorces his wife and marry her to his brother and then may reclaim his former wife…

Yemenis: sieges and economic blockades harvest more casualties than field battles: Due to famine, malnutrition, dissemination of diseases, lack of medicine, high infantile mortality, polluted and infected water supply, and the casualties are essentially non-combatant people. Cholera and diphtheria epidemics adding to destruction of infrastructure and hospitals.

The health ministry in Yemen accounted for 200,000 deaths resulting from diphtheria epidemics
