African Internationalism discussing Russia/Ukraine struggle as part of negating #colonial #capitalist narrative being spread to paint Russia as aggressor while exposing the US & other European imperialist powers role as instigator/orchestrator of crisis:

"It is no secret that White Power is working overtime to shut down any form of communication from #Russia to parts of the world - which means that most of the #propaganda churned out by the colonial capitalists goes uncontested."
"The same US #imperialism that was built on #slavery, #genocide, & colonialism, is now posturing as the moral & political authority of the world. The US colonial capital state murders African people inside the US every single day... Floyd, Locke, Taylor, & millions of others."

"The erosion of meaningful culture, the domination of corporate & state media [] the loss of a knowledgable audience. And as one sees w/ the Russophobic response to Ukraine, the entire pandemic only served as a precursor to some complete mental collapse."

"And perhaps the best place (or one of them) to start is with ideas of #autonomy, #AI, and #tech (#media). For #automation and the internet have both, in their own ways, contributed hugely to the layers of mystification surrounding everything in the #capitalist west today."
"#AI seeks to achieve the same control over mental processes that #scientific management sought to achieve over physical #labour [in 2nd industrial revolution] through a process of rationalization, fragmentation, mechanization and routinization."

1/ This is a thread on concerns I have with #ESG investing and the role of #markets in a functional, #capitalist #democracy. Warning: it’s long and nothing in here is necessarily original on its own, but I wanted to tie together some thoughts.
2/ At the outset, I want to make clear that the following is my analysis, not my firm’s. If ESG factors matter to you, by all means invest accordingly. I also care about environmental, social and governance issues. My guess is almost everyone does to varying degrees.
3/ Additionally, over the last 5+ years I have invested in firms benefitting from cost declines in renewable power, advised clients to do so and at one point was trying to raise an energy transition fund.

#BiodiversityCrisis, etc.
As the system focuses on #Economic Growth, #Corporate Interest & Businesses First while exploiting the #Labor who are treated like hell & not paid a #LivingWage nor anything while everything to basically live is practically an Expense under #Capitalism.

"By 2030, our goal is to enable access to #digitalidentity for every person on the planet." — 2017 ID2020 Summit

2021: #ID2020 launches #GoodHealthPass Image
#ID2020 is very quiet having published a single video in 10 months - the #GoodHealthPass launch event (Feb 11 2021 w/ 2,452 views). Equally restrained is the Twitter account created Jan 2021, w/ a mere 384 followers - & 12 tweets. ID2020 Twitter is also on hiatus. #Strategy ImageImageImageImage
"Urgency - While standards-development processes typically move slowly, a cross-sector effort is urgently required to bring #goodhealthpass solutions to market in 2021 & to scale globally – with the same urgency applied to #vaccine development."

"Co-hosted by Richard Curtis & Mark #Carney – & featuring senior leaders from the financial world – the summit discussed how the $50 trillion invested by #pension funds globally can help tackle the #climate #emergency."

#COP26 #SavingCapitalism

"...with 47 trillion dollars in #pension funds globally this sector plays a major role we need to get our savings for the future shaping the future."



#TheyMeanBusiness #EmergingMarkets #COP26
If recent history serves as a barometer for public embrace of corporate "solutions" (marketed via #storytelling & #NGOs), it is not difficult to envision whole societies soon demanding their #pensions be "unlocked" by those attempting to save the faltering #capitalist system.

We Need To Protect #Türkiye From Suffering The Same Fate As #Andalusia !

Modern history represents how the #Secularist & #Capitalist #Europe was established while Islam & #IslamicCivilization was grounded to a halt .
After centuries of painful experiences Europe finally realized that it would establish itself on the stage of history unless it shattered the world-guiding global siege of Islamic civilization .

"making females sing when they shouldn't" @newscientist This will be an unpopular & probably ignored thread about #menopause #ecology #responsibility #society #power #inequality. So I am 51, BANG in the peri-menopause. #davinamenopause
I am also #PhD research fellow, trying thru brain fog to learn 2 new languages, in a new country & new work industry (academia) during a pandemic. So my GP prescribes me synthetic HRT after a 3 month headache & acute anxiety to allow me to keep working on #sustainability research
I am just one of 4 billion women who will experience(if they live long enough despite war, poverty, violence & environmental destruction to get to it?) waning of fertility. Half the world's humans. If we ALL took #hrt of any kind what does that mean for our non-human female kin?

How long before it's illegal to support any left-wing Party or criticise capitalism?
US libertarian billionaires scapegoat & demonize ‘Big Government’, 'identity politics' & the Left, using propaganda to manipulate citizens into voting against their interests, so they can continue to exploit workers & nature.

The Global 1% have so far siphoned off $158 TRILLION.
They put vast resources into fueling the "culture war", which acts as a distraction, & an ideological assault on the values of fairness, justice & equality by promoting individualism, while keeping voters divided so they can continue their corruption & exploitation uninterrupted.

"It's the #Party #Sector, stupid" The shift 👇🏼is from autonomy of #PartyCapitalists with respect to everyday decisions & depend on self control to implement #CCP's goals, to explicit monitoring of key parameters like obedience of the #Party #Capitalist to #Xi's directives!🧐
2/cps #CCPchinaInc (2)Th freedom to decide what % of profits to take for personal use by party capitalist viz for party goals including maximization of growth &/or employment is being controlled more actively since 2014, and more desperately since collapse of growth & profits

At a time the #USCongress is vigorously debating another #fiscal rescue package to support households and businesses into year end, it’s vital to think hard about the intersection between #Fed monetary policy/fiscal support and what it means for #markets: bit.ly/3fkZbfM Image
In fact, the #CovidCrisis forced an evolution in policy coordination, whereby for the first time since WWII, U.S. policymakers married monetary and fiscal policy, with the #Fed and @USTreasury working together to inject cash from the #Fed’s #QE programs into the private sector…
That has been game changing for #liquidity near-term and should continue to help combat the #economic fallout from the #pandemic.

"the heart of a great conservative movement that helped to make America strong and prosperous in the 20th century – now helping to ensure she remains free and secure in the 21st century,"
Some CNP members - Mike Pence comes quickly to mind - in the context of bolstering their conservative credentials, have proudly revealed their CNP membership, even though CNP's policy is to keep membership a secret. Here is it's 2014 Membership, the latest splcenter.org/sites/default/…
#CNP's tentacles include well-connected activists who advocate for the imposition of fundamentalist Christian ideology in public life and have succeeded in forcing their agenda in republican administrations. A list of organizations working with CNP web.archive.org/web/2012020417…

Fraser contends with liberal feminism’s troubling convergence with #capitalism, and the ways in which #feminism can provide a veneer of liberation for a system of relentless #exploitation@DissentMagdissentmagazine.org/article/nancy-…
The gendered separation of #social reproduction from #economic production constitutes the principal institutional basis for women’s subordination in #capitalist societies.
When a society simultaneously withdraws public support for social reproduction and conscripts the chief providers of it into long and grueling hours of paid work, it depletes the very social capacities on which it depends. The result is a “crisis of care”

I have been thinking quite a bit about the issues raised by the BMJ article below (& others) and the language of #commercialdeterminantsofhealth or #CDoH
It is so important that #socialscientists , including #anthropologists participate in these conversations
It is so important that we think about the role of #industry interests in shaping #health & #socialscientists can help frame these conversations in broader terms

@sophiejrigney @elizabethmoya @makesmilk @babyfriendly Anthropologist here - I have written about changing ideas about #time and about the regulation of infants quite a bit. These are #culturalideologies that came about in late 19th-early 20th century in response to social changes 1/n
@sophiejrigney @elizabethmoya @makesmilk @babyfriendly the rise of industrial #capitalism changed labor practices and emphasized efficiency and predictability. The #clock was particularly important in this regard.
@sophiejrigney @elizabethmoya @makesmilk @babyfriendly There was a fundamental reworking of #time from a very different understanding - agricultural labor has a very different rhythm (EP Thompson famously wrote about this) jstor.org/stable/649749?…

This #ManufactureOfDoubt script has been used by the #formulaindustry from the very beginning. You can see it from 19th century advertisements through today. The script is a #social one, exactly as @prof_goldberg says - and where #culturalideologies & #politicaleconomy intersect.
Perfect for some #anthropological analysis. In case of #formulamarketing, the social script for #ManufactureofDoubt exploits & enhances existing #culturalideologies of anxiety abt #breastfeeding which have been around since late 19th cent among white, upper class women & spread
#Biomedicalization of #childbirth & #infantfeeding played a key part in deepening these anxieties & facilitated the #normalization of #infantformula by mid 20th cent, esp via medical experts & hospital practices that entailed routine separation & scheduled feeding

Dear all, in relation to my view on the true purpose of #brexit as an agent of #regime change, Will @whnlaws asked if there was a hashtag associated with it, so I am assigning it with the hashtag #30/03. For those that didn't see it, here's my orig thread
I will be using it in relation to posts about post brexit Britain and how brexit is being used to usher in a Far Right gov made up of capitalist fundamentalists who wish to buy up, own and control everything and everyone. #Capitalist #totalitarianism. Everything changes #30/03
We must do all we can to avoid democratic D Day on #30/03
