What is identity politics? Is it, to paraphrase Dylan Thomas, a part of society you dont like thats fighting for its interests as fiercely as yours does? Or is it, as Mark Lilla puts it in The Once and Future Liberal, a pseudo-politics of self-regard and increasingly narrow and exclusionary self-definition? The book belongs to the genre of responses to Donald Trumps election in which liberal American academics turn their rage on their own intellectual-political class. Lilla argues that the pursuit of identity politics by liberal graduates has crippled and distracted the Democrats.
The time capsule was buried in a secluded square in Murmansk in 1967 on the eve of the fiftieth anniversary of the Russian Revolution. Inside was a message dedicated to the citizens of the Communist future. At short notice, the authorities brought forward the capsules exhumation by ten days, to coincide with the citys 101st birthday. With the stroke of an officials pen, a mid-century Soviet relic was enlisted to honour one of the last acts of Tsar (now Saint) Nicholas II, who founded my hometown in October 1916. From socialism to monarchism in ten days.
The perfectly formed city-state is the ideal, deeply ingrained in the Western psyche, on which our notion of the nation-state is founded, ultimately inspiring Donald Trumps notion of a city wall to keep out the barbarian Mexican horde, and Brexiters desire to take back control from insurgent European bureaucrats. But what if the conventional narrative is entirely wrong? What if ancient ruins testify to an aberration in the normal state of human affairs rather than a glorious and ancient past to whose achievements we should once again aspire? What if the origin of farming wasnt a moment of liberation but of entrapment?
The novels re-creation of New York City will probably inspire wistfulness. Sections of the Navy Yard have been preserved, and in recent years revitalised, but the new businesses there make things like zillion-dollar lighting fixtures and fake subway signs. Last year, Admirals Row was demolished to clear space for a development that will include a huge supermarket and a car park. Who can resist the romance of the bustling yard in a time of industry and righteousness? In this plot-driven page-turner about a period so important to Americans idea of themselves, Egans dearth of analysis almost passes without notice.

A blame game has begun in Italy that risks casting a bright light on the leadership of both the Bank of Italy and Italys financial markets regulator Consob. The controversial decision to award the central banks current Chairman Ignazio Visco a fresh six-year mandate despite presiding over one of the worst banking crises in living memory has ignited a tug-of-war between political parties and the president, who makes the ultimate decision on who to appoint as central bank chief.
The first to cast aspersions was Italys former premier Matteo Renzi, who, no doubt in an effort to distract from his own partys part in the collapse of Monte dei Paschi di Siena (MPS), called into question the supervisory role of both the Bank of Italy and Consob during Italys banking crisis.
Silvio Berlusconi, a key player in the center-right coalition whose party came out on top in recent elections in Sicily, was next to join the fray. The Bank of Italy did not exercise the control that was expected of it, he told reporters in Brussels in response to a pointed question about Visco.
As the controversy grows, it risks drawing the role of Viscos predecessor, current ECB President Mario Draghi, into the spotlight. Many of the key events that helped pave the way to Italys current crisis took place during his mandate as governor of Italys central bank. And now the skeletons are beginning to crawl out of the closet
Walter Bond the Animal Liberation Front political prisoner has started a hunger strike to protest mistreatment in prison

Statement from Walter Bond

Since my arrival in Greenville two-and-a-half years ago, my communications with the world have been made incredibly difficult and at times impossible. I have been repeatedly denied books, magazines, letters and pictures. Its standard operating procedure that my mail be it my email or snail mail is habitually days, weeks and even months late. It is not at all uncommon for my mail, both incoming and outgoing, to simply never arrive.
Ive beenIve even been denied copies of my own book, Always Looking Forward, which I wrote in prison and is approved for me to have.
It has also become impossible for me to adhere to my Vegan diet, because none of the so-called meat options offered at Greenville, Illinois are even close to Vegan. Because of this, I have been forced at great cost to my friends, family and supporters to pay outrageously for foods from the commissary that continue to be an inadequate version.
I have tried now for over a year to obtain a transfer from FCI Greenville, Illinois closer to New York City where I intend to live upon my release, but I have been denied this as well through petty and irrelevant disciplinary reports.
Despite all of this, I have maintained years of patience, quietly awaiting my freedom. But, my coo...
Die Grnen berichten von den Sondierungsgesprchen. Money Quote:
SPIEGEL ONLINE: Was haben die Grnen bei den Sondierungen gelernt?o_O
Habeck: Wir waren gezwungen, unser Wahlprogramm zu einem Ergebnisprogramm zu machen. Beispiel CO2-Reduktion: Wir konnten nicht mehr nur Gigawatt-Forderungen erheben, sondern mussten auch erklren, wie dabei die Versorgungssicherheit gewhrleistet bliebe. Das war eine Wirklichkeitshrtung.
Die sind ernsthaft whrend der Sondierung zum ersten Mal gefragt worden, ob sie ihren Plan gegengerechnet haben?!
Heilige Scheie! "Wirklichkeitshrtung", ich kipp aus den Latschen!
Leute, lasst euch das eine Lehre sein! So kann das enden, wenn man sich in irgendwelche virtuellen Parallelblasenwelten zurckzieht!
Der Kontext dafr ist natrlich EA und ihr Battlefront 2, das sie gerade massiv verkacken. Aber Lootboxen sind echt verbreitet in Videospielen. Fallout und Skyrim haben welche, Teamfortress 2 hat welche, die Borderlands-Reihe hat es so berzogen, dass es schon als Satire durchging bei Beobachtern. Wo zieht man da die Linie? Sind jetzt alle Lootboxen mit zuflligem Inhalt Glcksspiel? Inhaltlich finde ich das berzeugend. Aber wenn das jetzt der Stand ist, dann brennt bei der Videospielebranche gerade aber mal die Htte.
Ich bin mal sehr gespannt, wie das jetzt weitergeht.
Ich wei gar nicht, wie weit man da zurckgehen muss, bis man die erste Lootbox findet. Ultima 5 hatte Loot an Monstern in Dungeons! Zhlt das jetzt auch? Wie zufllig muss der Loot sein, damit es als Glcksspiel gilt?
Update: Jetzt kommen hier lauter schlecht informierte Leute und wollen mir erklren, es ginge um Mikrotransaktionen. Nein, geht es nicht. EA hat vor einer Weile angesagt, als das gerade auf reddit platzte, dass sie Mikrotransaktionen aus dem Spiel ausgebaut htten jetzt als Reaktion. Und danach kam Belgien. Kann natrlich sein, dass die Belgier das nicht mitgekriegt hatten. Klar.
Aber mal unter uns: Ich finde die Frage vllig gerechtfertigt, und zwar auch wenn da kein Geld fliet. Wieso ist denn das weniger Glcksspiel, wenn man "nur" Lebenszeit opfert? berlegt mal, wie viel Lebenszeit unsere Kids wegen solcher Crack-Abhngigkeits-Antrainier-Mechanismen mit Videospielen verplempern.
Update: Jemand, der besser flmisch kann als ich, hat mir gerade bersetzt, dass es den Belgiern doch nur um bezahlte Lootboxen geht. Schade. Ich finde, die Debatte msste man breiter fhren. Ich hatte hier ja schon ein paar Mal, wie Facebook und co letztendlich einen Krieg um die Aufmerksamkeit ihrer "Kunden" fhren, und dabei phsychologische Tricks anwenden, gegen die viele Menschen machtlos sind und sich in einen Sog der Zeitverschwendung zu Gunsten von Facebook ziehen lassen. Das ist Ausnutzung von Wehrlosen zur eigenen Profitmaximierung und moralisch mindestens genau so anstig wie der Verkauf von Lottotickets oder Alkohol und Zigaretten. Ich finde nicht offensichtlich, wieso der Staat dem nicht einen Riegel vorschieben sollte.

Two squats under attack from the authorities are mobilising to beat back the latest round of evictions on the European scene. Writing on Indymedia Netherlands, Bajesdorp in Amsterdam explained they are on the front line of a major redevelopment project due to be on the agenda of council meetings today, the bestemmingsplan. They said: Our
In order not to cluster up, matter has to move. Whether it is dark or light matter, the movement can be troublesome and painful since, as goes for the dark matter, we often let it out when we feel safe enough in our friendships and even more, in our intimate relationships.
The darkness can expand and so can the light and we are, as souls, certainly in the crossfire of these awesome powers. The whole point is to release the old so the new can step in, and this is where we let it out and often straight in the faces of the people we love the most; those who have placed their trust in us.
Delicate, delicate. Since actually: The Light can hurt as well, because we have to surrender to it and it can blind our eyes into the feel of too much self-importance with no room for others really, not being able to listen, always telling the world the right solutions, always advising without being asked.
This is where we can hurt the persons that we love the most; partner, friends, family, whomever. We dont hurt people in this process that we are not emotionally attached to, simply because they dont know us that well and because we share a room of intimacy with the people we have closest to us, and this as intimate as it ever gets.
When we go into these deep pains or reprogramming of what basically are our emotional and spiritual immune systems, we become fragile. Its important to realize that fragile and warrior is no contradiction. When we set out to be spiritual warriors we should be well aware of both our fragility and our tremendous strength.
The fragility is a life saver, preventing us from going into battles where we would be overrun by underestimating what or whom were fighting on the outside. Whatever were fighting on the outside is often a mirror of what were also fighting on the inside. Out of that fighting comes our altering of perceived reality. While this goes on, we release the dark matter of the past, maybe yesterdays dark matter or dark matter since childhood.
That matter can only go one place and that one...

In Taking Stock: One Year After Trump professor Richard Falk dissects the universe in which we live in the light of Trumps reign. Towards his conclusion, Falk writes the following paragraph on Being in Time A Post Political Condition.
as Gilad Atzmon persuasively argues in Being in Time, a politics of reason has been thrown disastrously off course by the impact of a liberal discourse infected by the taints of political correctness and identity politics, which substitutes conformity and allegiance for truth-seeking and acknowledgements of the impurities of social reality. Without a suitable discourse respectful of the contingencies and unevenness of reality we cannot find the pathways to humane political behavior. To be sure, the Mammonite discourse of the Trump brand of right-wing politics is certainly no better, offering a greed-saturated form of materialism that feeds the limitless appetite of the very richest among us while manipulating and repressing the rest of us. As Atzmon provocatively insists, this absence of a trustworthy discourse by which to express grievances and aspirations is why it clears the air to admit that our epoch has become post-political, at least for now.

I must admit that after what Falk went through following his endorsement of The Wandering Who? I expected him to stay away. I was obviously wrong. Prof Falk. Is a man of courage who speaks out and tells the truth as he sees it....
A question gets frequently asked in relation to Brexit it always comes from the exit side and is who is going to build a border with Northern Ireland?. The argument is this Well, what if the United Kingdom declines to impose a hard border with the European Union, well then theres nothing else to be said. Presumably the European Union could decide to build its own hard border, but thats their problem?
Would that it was so simple See below the fold
Any impetus for changing the existing completely invisible and seamless border, insofar as it pertains to the movement of goods services and people, will arise as a result of the decision by the United Kingdom to leave the European Union. Nobody doubts that.
In the event that United Kingdom managers to negotiate some sort of the free-trade agreement, perhaps along the lines of that pertaining between Norway and in the European Union, then some sort of relatively light touch border might be possible. However, the Norwegian Minister for relations with the European Union has poured a very large bucket of cold water on the idea that this would be other than a considerably harder border then exists at present. Lets assume that she knows what shes talking about.
Customs checks and rules of origin checks also exist on the Swiss European Union border.
In the case of both the Swiss and the Norwegian situations both countries find themselves rule takers. Access to the single market comes at the cost of paying for all of the benefits and getting little in terms of influence.
In the events that there is no arrangement then United Kingdom will find itself moving towards trading with the European Union on the basis of the arrangements as per the World Trade Organisation. Again, nobody doubts that. Some may even relish it.
One of the principles of the World Trade Organisation is that of the most-favoured-nation. In essence, what this states is that if you give one country special terms are a special deal, then you must give those terms to all countries with whom you trade
So lets imagine a belligerent United Kingdom decides, post a breakdown of negotiations, that it will not impose a customs or hard border. If its not going to have a customs checks, tariff checks, rules of origin checks, and the whole paraphernalia of dealing with the country with whom you are not sharing a customs union then it must give those exact same terms to every country in the world.
Only those pushing for the absolute hardest form, the purest kind, of Brexit sugge...

The term fake news sits at the heart of a raging battle between political dynasties, media conglomerates, and alternative Internet news sites. In the aftermath of the 2016 presidential election, which many establishment pundits and operatives argue was heavily affected by online propaganda and weaponized information, few people can say with any authority what constitutes fake news, but that hasnt stopped mainstream news outlets and tech giants from attempting to censor it.
The newest effort sees an alliance between the worlds two most powerful tech companies, which arguably control the vast majority of what people see online. Google and Facebook have partnered up with 75 other global news organizations and tech firms, including The Washington Post, to combat online misinformation with the Trust Project.
The Trust Project will attempt to establish a transparency system of rating and tagging the trustworthiness of an article and the news source that produced it. This system will feature trust indicators developed for each online platform.
According to the project leader, Sally Lehrman of Santa Clara Universitys Markkula Center for Applied Ethics, the project will also include information about funding and details about specific journalists and their sources and references.
The project will involve a far-reaching collaboration between different companies. Launch partners include the Economist, the Globe and Mail, the Independent Journal Review, Mic, Italys La Repubblica and La Stampa, and the Washington Post. Tech giants like Facebook, Google, Twitter, and Microsoft will integrate trust indicators using machine-readable signals that will be specially tailored to their platforms by Schema.org. They plan to eventually spread the plan out to incorporate smaller news websites and non-profits by creating indicators for WordPre...

A Letter to the Editor from SBC
Councillor Rob BARNETT [Lab.] (Whitby
Streonshalh), who writes to lament the decline of our
much-loved town of Whitby under two tiers of Tory-led local
Once again, thank you for publishing on your widely-read social media pages.
Your readers may or may not be aware that, as an SBC Councillor, I do my best to get out and about to engage with the everyday concerns of people in this Town and Borough.
It seems to me that we need to put the facts straight as far as the perception of what is really going on locally is concerned.
As we know, SBC Leader Bastiman and MP Goodwill both believe all is well. That is their perception.
In point of fact, these are some of the questions I am putting to people I meet on their doorsteps.
Did you know that?
1) Our town is in the
low pay capital of Britain?
2) The housing stock for locals is shrinking and unaffordable?
3) Our housing is the most expensive in the Borough?
4) Our schools underachieve and are amongst the worst in the country? (OfSTED)
5) Schools are having to ask parents for money?
6) Care homes are closing down?
7) Pre-school education is in crisis few places, lack of funding?
8) SBC can borrow millions for water parks and vanity projects?
9) The library is run on goodwill? (Not Robert!).
10) The bus service is a mere skeleton? (No buses up Green Lane)
11) SBC have not signed off the accounts for 2 years?
12) In our area, average weekly wages fell 30 between 2010 and 2016.
13) New business failures are significantly worse than the rest of Yorkshire.
14) The educational levels of the work force are declining.
15) Crime rates are increasing.
16) There is an increasing number of vacant shop units.
In recent weeks, we have received the accolade of being the low pay capital of Britain and 7th worst for homelessness in Yorkshire. It would seem to me that locally, housing is in crisis, social care has diminis...

Gilad Azmon and the Orient House Ensemble - The
Spirit of Trane
(Fanfare FF1702. CD Review by Sarah Chaplin)
Fifty years on and its good to know that we have saxophone players in our midst like Gilad Atzmon who are not only brilliant in their own right, but are also capable of channelling the sound, the energy and the extraordinary creativity of jazz giant John Coltrane. Moreover, Atzmon has followed through on his enthusiasm for his muse by bringing out a celebratory album of I want to say supreme richness and quality. The Spirit of Trane is more than an exercise of paying homage to a great mentor, it is also a speculation about some of the places Trane might have gone had he lived longer.
Coltrane died when Atzmon was only four years old, but at 17, when he took up playing tenor, it was because of Trane. In addition to emulating aspects of the set-up Trane used, this long-held admiration has contributed an expansion of the signature Atzmon sound to encompass the full-throated, languid, melt-in-the-mouth type of edge that Coltrane possessed. A few years back I saw Atzmon perform a Coltrane-inspired set at the Watermill, deconstructing a simple rendition of Scarborough Fairinto a complex polyphonic love affair, before landing it safely back on the runway as if nothing out of the ordinary had just happened. It was mesmerising....

The Saudi clown prince Mohammad Bin Salman is an impulsive tyrant. But what accounts for his urge to purge the country of any potential competing power center Why does he run a such an activist foreign policy? The answer might be Iran. Not Iran the country, but Iran the system.
Since the U.S. war on Iraq the sclerotic Saudi Arabia continuously lost standing in its region. The Iranian model gained ground. A decade later the authoritarian Arab systems were challenged by the so called Arab spring. While the movements in the various countries -as far as they were genuine- have failed, they were a warning sign for things to come.
Saudi Arabia reacted to the challenges by moving away from a sedate, consensual run family business towards a centrally controlled, supercharged tyranny. The move allows for more flexible and faster reactions to any future challenge. But it also increases the chance of making mistakes. To understand why this endeavor is likely to fail one needs look at the traditional economic and social system that is the fabric of the country. The fate of the Hariri dynasty is an example for it.
Since Salman climbed the throne he has moved to eliminate all competition to his rule. The religious establishment was purged of any opposition. Its police arm was reigned in. First crown prince Murqrin was removed and then crown prince Nayef. They were replaced with Salmans inexperienced son. Economic and military powers were concentrated in his hands. During the recent night of the long knivespowerful family members and business people were detained. The Wall Street Journal reports of a second arrest wave. More higher ups have been incarcerated. This round includes senior military commanders and very wealthy business people.

The list of NYCs 100 worst landlords is, once again, overwhelmingly dominated by Jewish names. Naturally, I wondered whether this bar mitzvah guest list quality also applies to the list of NYCs 100 best landlords. If it does, problem solved. We would assume that since Jews are overrepresented in the NYC rental business, they are amongst the best landlords as well as the worst.
A quick search reveals that there is no official NYC best landlord list. The Yelp search engine offers something that resembles such a list and it doesnt approximate my bar mitzvah guest list in the least.
Since the demography of the list of NYC 100 worst landlords is obvious, the list raises the following questions:
1. How is it possible that there are no academic texts that examine this serious anomaly of extreme over-representation of one ethnic group in this gruesome list?
2. How is it possible that not one social science graduate student has dedicated his/her PhD to the study of the 40 times over-representation of one ethnic group in the shameful list of abusive landlords? I ask because an over-representation of 1.3 of an ethnic group in crime statistics has justified academic research and even institutional study.
3. How is it possible that not one cultural studies scholar has attempted to identify the possible cultural conditions that have led to the concentration of one tribe in this horrid list?
4. And what about American media? Shouldnt we expect CNN, the NY Times or even Breitbart.com to ask the obvious question? What is it about Gilads bar mitzvah guests, why are they so horrid to their tenants?
5. How can we explain the fact that the NYC based Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP) and Jewish anti Zionist outlets such as Mondoweiss that care for justice and Palestinian rights are blind to the abuse that...

Tuesday, October 31, our comrade Paolo has been arrested along with two partners, immediately after the post office robbery in a suburb of Cagliari (Sardinia). Once they left the post office, they tried to get away, but the infamy of a bystander has provided very precise information to cops, who therefore were able to organize an encirclement and to intercept them as they were driving away.
They have offered no resistance. Clothes and weapons used in the robbery have been found in the car.
All our closeness and solidarity to them. We do not know why they have made this choice, e we do not care about. We know whoever organize to deprive State and bosses of what they need, do the right thing, always.
But, we are disgusted by those people who for a sense of civic duty (expression used by the chief police of Cagliari) snitch on those who organize and act to have what they need, taking from what by nature is the worst exploiter in the world, the State.
On the side of those who do not bow their heads.
Paolo is at Uta, he is fine [in the cell with one of the two accomplices with whom he was arrested]. He asks for stamps to be sent. There is nothing about hearing dates or anything else, does not seem to have problems getting the correspondence.

We see that the repressive campaign on the anarchist movement does not cease. Examples are enough: The operation Fnix case in the Czech Republic, the case of the Warsaw Three, charges of bank robbery in Aachen, courts with rebels against the G20 summit in Hamburg and other cases.
Cops, judges, prosecutors, mass-media. They are haunted, imprisoned, robbed, manipulated. This is a challenge to all Revolutionary cells and other groups and individuals. Sabotage the activities of those bastards. Turn them into terrain, technology and structures. Organize resistance. Support the fugitives and their loved ones.
What destroys us will stop by fighting.
The goal is clear = Freedom, justice, anarcho-communism.

Durante varios das
la cineasta Ana Gonzlez permaneci con los excombatientes de las
Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionarias de Colombia (FARC) realizando
talleres y diversas actividades enfocadas a la construccin de
archivo audiovisual y fortalecimiento de la memoria. Saldar el cine
colombiano su deuda con la memoria, con la historia del pas? Es
momento que la imagen salga de la quietud y recobre el movimiento
en favor de la vida y derrote al silencio, esa petrificacin cmplice
de quienes se vendieron a la infamia y censura de un modelo poltico
y econmico que impone solo muerte y miseria.
