A leader in #Igbo land must be very careful. They recognise that the line between sanity & insanity is very thin. Once one starts chorusing ijọm instead of ijọ́m, s/he is on his or her own. Like the said madman casting nothing over the bridge shouting, "13,13, 13..." The bridge
having hung over a deep turbulent river, people gathered to wonder what 13th bawl it could've been. So, a more inquisitive one went closer to see. At once, the madman scooped, plunged him over and began to sing, "14, 14..."

The Igbos know fleeing away, isn't cowardice in any way
Onye Igbo maara na ọhịa a hụrụ ozu nza abụọ na ihe na-egbu nwa nza, nọ na ya.

Kama ihe ga-ata isi ya, ya kpuru okwu ya. #Igbo
He doesn't sit out with insanity. He doesn't take counsel of psychopaths. Once a sound mind, crosses over to the other side of reasoning, the rest

@ParthapratimKh3 @AkbAsis @barua_ashish @PaulGambles2 @RonnieChopra1 @Burke_Esq @mektronik @MonetaryWonk @askeamonn 2. #Obama has worked as a lawyer for a short time, thereafter politics, but is worth millions.
The #Clintons broke after Bill was no longer #president (legal fees), years later worth $200 millions (with $330 to 400K speaking-fees = bribe-money).

@ParthapratimKh3 @AkbAsis @barua_ashish @PaulGambles2 @RonnieChopra1 @Burke_Esq @mektronik @MonetaryWonk @askeamonn 3. The "lefty" #BernieSanders owns 3 villas.

This is a regime of lobbycrats serving mainly the 1%.

Only solution: Limit donations to an amount not exceeding $1.000. Also ensure that all business-dealings of active politicials are made public. Non-discosure mustcarry penalties.

"If you have nothing to hide you are worthless" Shoshana Zuboff #CPDP2019
Should we not gather in resistance against surveillance capitalism which has come to destroy human nature as industrial capitalism did to nature?
@murakamiwood digital is another special fix of capitalism to commodify aspects of human experience until now uncommodified.

Dear @arlenparsa, Thank you for the inspirational and comforting tweet #CovingtonCatholic #Magateen. Basic stuff is falling apart all around us and we are looking depraved on so many fronts. It’s nice to see that we have choices.
You have shown us that there is a high road, a smarter road, and we are free to take it. #Media impose a certain behavioral framework, but we can choose to engage at a higher level like you did. It takes more work and more commitment, but it’s ultimately so much more crucial.
We found the #CNN coverage disgraceful & unprofessional. What these #kids did was unquestionably reprehensible. But they are simply ignorant at this stage of their development. Are they the racist bigots of tomorrow? More than likely, but one may still hold out #hope for them.

🇬🇧My parents came to the UK as German Jewish refugees from a so-called 'civilised' country.🇩🇪

NEVER EVER assume you won't, in some post #Brexit nightmare, find yourself forced to flee the UK , jobless, hungry, desperate, finding yourself in a refugee camp/stuck on some border!
Theresa May is minded to scrap the Human Rights Act post #Brexit
For those unaware of what the Human Rights Act actually is:
Check this out: legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/1998/42/…
Read it through carefully.
Hitler also scrapped rights for Jews, Gays, Disabled, Roma & some sects.

🇬🇧The gradual erosion of everything that makes up a civil society has been happening for many years.🇬🇧
The demonization of 'the other' is fuelled by the press, on TV & via our OWN MPs.

My wonderful Representative @RepBarbaraLee walks on the floor of the chamber as Nancy Pelosi is set to make history by being elected Democratic Speaker of the House—AGAIN. And third in line to the presidency. A good day.
JUST NOW: Democrat Nancy Pelosi is now the duly elected Speaker of the House of the #116Congress. First person in 6 decades to return to speakership. And the first, second and only woman to hold that powerful position. #winning

1. Dear candidate for the 2019 elections in Nigeria. Aristotle described courage as the first virtue, because it makes other virtues possible. Do you have the courage to imagine a developed Nigeria, to do what is right and to work to make it reality? #democracy #courage
2. This will be the 6th set of national elections since 1999. Not much has changed. Will next year’s elections really put us on the path to development? Or should we rather hold a referendum to discuss our future? Only cowardice would make us avoid the real issues. #democracy
3. Now is the time for freedom from colonisation by those without conscience in our elite class. Only courageous leadership will tweak our constitution and stop the wanton stealing of our resources. Without courage, you won’t make a difference. Do you have courage? #democracy

Dear candidate for the 2019 elections in Nigeria. There’s a titanic struggle within the elite class. Many want political power for selfish gain. Development cannot happen under their leadership whether ours is a monarchy, democracy or military rule. Are you with them? #democracy
It has been very difficult for states, businesses and individuals to create wealth and develop since power was eroded from the regions in 1966 due to control by the federal government. It’s a constitutional issue. Will you work to change this structure? #democracy
Will you sacrifice personal ambition to remove policies that limit the ability of organisations and individuals to prosper, like the Land Use Act, so they can unlock their capital? Will you fight piracy so our innovators can create without people stealing their ideas? #democracy

Dear candidate for the 2019 elections in Nigeria. Do you believe that all men are created equal and deserve a basic level of comfort and dignity? That is the belief where democracy really works. If you don’t, you can’t facilitate development in a democracy. #democracy
How many countries have moved from the so called 3rd World to the so called 1st World in the last 100 years through American-style democracy? Hard to find. Few that developed had another brand of democracy. Elite in developing nations will not accept equality of all. #democracy
Dear citizen, you have to sift thoroughly to find candidates that believe you deserve to be served with dignity and excellence, not enslaved or colonized. Please sift well. Check their track records. Your future and that of generations after you is at stake. #democracy

Things are starting to change. What future do we want?

The political left and alt-right will use technology (incl. #AI/#AGI) & near-certain runaway #climate change. How to turn threats into opportunities? An intro to #ExtinctionRebellion research: vimeo.com/297453366 1/n
This film introduces a political theory on necessary conditions for climate mitigation (a.k.a.: "saving the world"). Let's call this theory "carbon language" until we find a better term. Don't worry, this thread will be short and easy to understand. vimeo.com/297679220 2/n
Indeed, this thread is entirely unscientific because science can tell us only how to save the world, not why. Why preserve life on Earth? Why live good lives? These are ethical questions; their answers depend on our values, and if we want to mitigate climate change, we will 3/n

There is nothing politically intelligent in handing an anti-Semite the large, well-publicized @munkdebate platform. Here’s a research article highlighting Bannon‘s anti-Semitism—yes, his #whitesupremacy is so obvious that it appears in an article title. jstor.org/stable/10.2979…
Let me elaborate some points where you go wildly wrong, @CBCSunday. Michael Enright, you irresponsibly minimize the reach and effect that Bannon has strategically built for his brand of anti-Semitism and #whitesupremacy. 2/
Bannon has constructed an international network of anti-Semites and #whitesupremacists. You are dead wrong when you say, "That's an awful lot of social damage to be caused by the mutterings of a lone, right-wing American gas bag." 3/

@CapitalJon @PaulGambles2 @AlastairWinter @Halsrethink @dlacalle_IA @OBrienSheehan @chloechotv 1. #EU-#Europe before 2000 was OK: Open borders within #EU for EU-citizens, people can live & work (and study) in all EU states (so take great care who joins - went too fast too far East). The seed of destruction came with the #EURO.
@CapitalJon @PaulGambles2 @AlastairWinter @Halsrethink @dlacalle_IA @OBrienSheehan @chloechotv 2. More centralization & #Merkel's #RefugeesWelcome (with the will to enforce mass-#migration on other #EU states) introduce more toxic cancer cells into the #EU!
A common budget (#Macron) & an #EU-army would be the end of true #democracy & #freedom within #Europe!
@CapitalJon @PaulGambles2 @AlastairWinter @Halsrethink @dlacalle_IA @OBrienSheehan @chloechotv 3. The next step would be the likes of #Merkel, #Macron & #Juncker enforcing their will by first witholding money & next send the #EU-army to topple the likes of #Orban in #Hungary.

🏛️In an extremely brave move last week, U.S. Senator Heidi Heitkamp stood up for #Democrats and survivors of sexual assault and rape by voting "No" on Brett Kavanaugh.

😡Unfortunately, she is facing backlash in her conservative state, #NorthDakota

💸Please consider giving Senator Heitkamp a little help—a small donation of $1 or $2 is enough—to thank her for standing up for #Democracy and women's rights.

🐬WE NEED TO #FlipTheSenate

🔑Her seat is key to doing this.
🔗Here's the link to make a donation of any size to Senator Heidi Heitkamp & to find out more about her.

Ahead of @SenatorCollins' speech on the Senate floor, protesters chant "believe women!" from the gallery
COLLINS is using her speech to criticize opponents of Kavanaugh as "frenzied," "spreading outright falsehoods," and representing "special interest groups."
COLLINS: "The president has broad discretion to consider a nominee's philosophy, whereas my duty as a senator is to focus on the nominee's qualifications as long as that nominee's philosophy is within the mainstream."

It sure sounds like she is going to announce a yes vote.

1) Starting a data series explaining India's #antiHindu system, 2nd class citizen status of Hindus and need for #HinduCharter (hint: #antiHindu system enjoys multi partisan support of all political parties, all branches of govt & so called pillars of #democracy & #equality)
2) Fountainhead of India's #antiHindu system is article 29&30 of constitution which cleverly denies #equalrights to Hindus allowing govt to enact #discriminatory laws/funding/programs & enables Supreme court to adjudicate contradictory laws in #antiHindu manner. #HinduCharter
3) Indian Govt confiscation of Hindu temples is 1 of the largest #religionfreedom violation in world. ALL political parties&Judiciary mostly support Hindu temple confiscation. For all practical purpose,Constitution right to freedom of religion is for nonHindus only. #HinduCharter

The important point to keep in mind regarding section 33 of the Charter of Rights & Freedoms is why it was included. Think about what was going on at the time and why the Charter was even created.

Sect. 33 is a white supremacy tool that was included to make white men feel safe.
Now that this fact has been said, let’s get to the heart of addressing the attempt to abuse power in order to maintain white supremacy.

It’s 2018, time to rule section 33 unconstitutional when used to subvert Canadians’ inalienable rights to a free & democratic society.

History has taught us many lessons.

Some people learn from them and some people don’t.
