Thread: There is a book coming out in May which will open A LOT of people’s eyes to what the Russians have done.

It will be controversial because it’s written by a conservative Russian dissident and it will be used improperly for RW propaganda.

2. Bukovsky is a former Soviet dissident. He was thrown in gulags for years. I reached out to him because of his ties to other Soviet dissidents. vladimirbukovsky.com/judgment-in-mo…
3: Bukovsky tried to run for president against Putin a decade ago.

His book was first published in Russian in 95. Excerpts have been published in English, but the book was never published in English until now - bc it targets American politicians who worked against US interests

There is a certain kind of Man, an uncommon man

If you attempt to make his life easier, he will find new challenges to make it harder

If you remove the difficulty from his work, he will take on more work to compensate
If you give him leisure, he'll flee from it

If you give him a soft bed, he'll want a cold room and a thin blanket, if any

If you give him wealth, he'll not use it

You give him comfort, he'll take on anything that gives him a satisfying pain
Technology does not change this man's nature, only what he is capable of doing according to his nature

Such men are never beholden to anyone,

and they will reject everything that imposes a softening order on them

Science and Space

An interesting thread about "ugly food" (the theory that supermarkets largely don't stock cosmetically impaired perfectly good food, which is mostly true for some supermarkets, and therefore that this food gets wasted, which is not).

This has always been a curious theory for me, because it suggests that multi-billion dollar American companies would tolerate waste of (SWAG from someone who knows nothing about agricultural science) 60% of their raw inputs because they hate money or something.
(This is one of the many, many views on capitalism which views it as a superposition of people who evilly and rapaciously optimize everything which sparks joy out of life while simultaneously being nincompoops.)

Exoplaneten zijn planeten rond andere sterren. Er zijn er al meer dan 3000 ontdekt en uit die ontdekkingen is af te leiden dat rond een ster gemiddeld meer dan 1 planeet draait. 1/
Als je dus wilt weten hoe uniek de aarde is, met vloeibaar water en leven, weten we nu dat planeten op zich zeker niet moeilijk te maken zijn. 2/
Deze statistieken weten we vooral door de Kepler missie, die in 2009 was gelanceerd. Kepler keek heel lang naar 1 klein hemel met een hele grote en gevoelige camera. 3/

Tiens, hier soir, on accueillait un conférencier passionant sur "Vie extraterrestre et foi", et j'ai eu 10 minutes stupides au début parce que je ne comprenais pas que l'orateur parlait de la Voie Lactée.

Petit thread matinal de mythologie finlandaise.
La Voie Lactée, ai-je fini par comprendre, c'est Linnunrata, litt. "le chemin de l'oiseau". J'ai fini par comprender par le contexte que c'était notre galaxie, mais du coup j'ai fait des recherches avant de m'endormir hier soir.
Or donc, si vous ne le saviez pas, les oiseaux jouent un rôle très important dans la mythologie FIN, et plus largement dans les mythes des peuples finno-ougriens.
Dans le Kalevala, le monde naît d'un oeuf de canard, (plus exactement un fuligule de ce genre)

@RichardJMurphy has written a pathetic attempt at a take-down of @billy_blog (here: taxresearch.org.uk/Blog/2019/01/1…), where he makes the preposterous claim that MMT allegedly ignores that, er, imports have to paid for 😆

This is what Bill and I write in our book "Reclaiming the State".

Politics

I suspect there‘s absolutely nothing Trump could ever do that would cause his allies in Congress to put America’s interests above their hyper partisan loyalty to him.

Let’s look at what they’ve been comfortable with:
— fired two law enforcement officials for investigating him /1
— allegedly instructed Cohen to lie to Congress
— drafted a false cover story for the Trump Tower Russia meeting
— concealed his debt to Cohen for a hush money payoff by omitting it from his financial disclosure report, a felony if done knowingly and willfully /2
— destroyed records of his secret meetings with Putin
— lied to the American people about his business dealings in Russia
— has been caught telling thousands and thousands of lies to the American people /3

If you’ve followed me for a few years, you know that @GeorgePapa19 has been a focus. The MAIN question I’ve always had and have placed a ridiculous amount of weight on is “Who was he wearing a wire on?” We found out yesterday they wanted him to get Mifsud.
He had a list of people he couldn’t speak to. In my interview with him, he said it listed all of the Trump team. This is one of the reasons I was lead down the “Mueller is going for the conspirators” road. Without key details it was a speculation I had to make.
My thought process went like this - “If Pdop is wearing a wire for Mueller, and he is forbidden to speak to the Trump team, he MUST be trying to get dirt on the bad guys. If Mueller wants that, he has to be looking into the bad guys”. I was half right.

Trump support is less about stupidity and more about hatred
Back in 2014 I used to believe racists were idiots/stupid

Which is completely fair given the lack of logic it takes to have their sentiments and spew the shit that they spew
In order to be racist, you gotta live through cognitive dissonance about marginalized demographics and you also have to believe that your raggedy ass is better even though you're actually well---raggedy
