Real reasons for #conflict are buried in history & intermittently ooze out like hot lava from fissures. #Europe's been an active conflict zone for long born out of a stiff #RomanHangover ever since the #Empire collapsed.#Theopolitics is 1 ingredient in its conflict cocktail

Conflict in #Europe has to be understood in that context before jumping in & taking sides. Colonial times afforded no option & the world got involved twice converting #EuropeanConflict's into #WorldWar's. Many unconcerned died. India lost many braves from #Gallipoli to #Siam

Finally, the #GoldacreReview is published! (During Parliamentary Easter holidays, mid-ping-pong on the #HealthAndCareBill...)

It's 221 pages - each PDF page is a double page spread - so this could be a lo-o-o-ong [Thread].

Here goes...
First point to note, in the Terms of Reference (p5), is that this is about "access to #NHSdata by #researchers, #commissioners, and #innovators" - i.e. #Planning and #CommercialReUse - so it is directly relevant to the operation of millions of people's #NationalDataOptOuts...

Okay so there's apparently a theory that: #Empires live for 300 years.
First of all, definitions of empires are quite vague
Secondly, the duration given here is an average
An interesting view on it is given by the @ForeignPolicy article here: archive.is/YM5ri <🧵>
Some quotes: We tend to assume that the life cycle of empires, great powers, and civilizations has a predictable regularity to it. Yet the most striking thing about past empires is the extraordinary variability in the chronological as well as geographic expanse of their dominion.
Average Roman empire lasted 829 years: West Roman Empire from 27 B.C. (Octavian became Caesar Augustus) & till Constantinople established in 395, total of 422 years. East Roman Empire from then until sack of Byzantium by Ottoman Turks in 1453, 1,058 years.

The #Truth is:
The #Empire (#NATO) cannot create a #No-#Fly zone over #Ukraine, because the #Russians already did that in what is called:
The #Russian #Strategy of #A2AD:
#Anti-#Access/#Area-#Denial.
What is Anti-Access/Area-Denial (#A2AD)❓
A2AD denies an adversary’s freedom of movement.
AA –inhibition of enemy military movement into an area of operations.
AD – denial of enemy freedom of action in areas.

We see the #Crumbling #Empire facing signs of its downfall.
GeoPolitics: A growing union of Regional Powers (Russia, China, Iran, Belarus, other (#CSTO) like #Kazakhstan) will over-extend the #Empire's Powers.
Economic: European vassals will resist war in E-Europe.

It will not be possible for the US to build up in Europe a force big enough to block a Russian full attack on its military Infrastructure there.
Not even with battle field nukes, which Europe will not accept.

It's crazy to me all these People so disappointed that "nothing has happened" or "nothing is happening" ..
There is literally someone showing them all the things that have changed for the better in the world and all they choose to ficus on is the bad other people are doing or
have done in the past. Why are people not creating their own new future BEING THE CHANGE while waiting for the truth they are waiting for? Huh? Why are these types of people relevant and the ones literally showing them A world that is ready to be molded the way YOU want it to
be for the better & how to do it but all ones seem to care most about is feeding into the ones & things that are literally tearing each other apart? Why does everyone feel the way they do for so long? because there is truth that has already been given to you by the Military

extreme poverty and racist violence and gang violence throughout much of the world. And when poor people try to rise up and replace oppressive governments with popularly elected ones, the empire will help rig elections or overthrow elected leaders. 2/5

If the empire decides to overthrow a leader, that leader will be dubbed a dictator and the poor of that country will be starved until they are dissatisfied enough with their government to make a coup easier.

How? How is it possible that I take my nephew to his soccer practice & the team manager bee lines for us, asks if I was born in this country, & then proceeds to explain how much time he spent in Israel in his capacity in the Air Force 👀👀👀 wait, it gets fresher.
When I explain I’m Palestinian (again) he tries to make nice and explain that he spent a lot of time managing money/fundraising for Palestinian security forces 😱😱😱I really thought it couldn’t get worse...when I said oh, 2006, the Dayton Forces, I actually study what you do....
Then I don’t know what compels him to tell me: “ya I was there from 2004-2007 when Syria was raining missiles on Israel” 👀 that’s not what you mean, Syria hasn’t attacked Israel since 1973...he laughs & says it was so cool how Israelis just stayed on the beach during the war 😱

"No matter how bad the economy might look, no matter what government ineptitude might be revealed, no matter the injustices arising from people, corporations or institutions on the make – " 1/2

We need look no further than Tory UK Government, it's donors and loyal supporters!
"I believed that given the freedom of speech and expression, the freedom of association and reliable rule of law, British people – who enjoy those liberties and are innocent until proven otherwise – could tackle all the problems we face."

This glosses over Brexit corruption!
"I would ask why should Scots settle for running Scotland when we could run Britain?"

Frankly, this is a prime example of manipulation!

#LittleEngland, the mouse that is too feart to pursue #EnglishIndependence but dragged Scotland, Wales & NI along with it, seeks #Empire 2.0!

India Farmers Protests Goes Vogue.

Celebrities, influencers – & British Vogue - suddenly interested in #FarmersProtests that began in Nov. Despite MASSIVE resistance, the protests have been largely ignored by Western influencers/NGOs, etc. So why now? Let's explore.
Twitter (tool of empire) promoted the #celebrity endorsement of Rihanna/Greta accounts – while it simultaneously banned/censored on the ground Indian farmers/activists. While highlighting Western #influencers, Twitter had deleted approx. 250 protest/alt media accounts in #India.
Rihanna/Thunberg accounts share CNN article which references Access Now, "an advocacy group which tracks internet freedom." In reality, Access began as an arm of Avaaz (Purpose), to destabilize #Iran. Another instrument of #empire.

More on Access Now:

Today is the start of #SHW2020! Each day this week, I'll be tweeting about Britain's long, tempestuous and ever-so-slightly bonkers love–hate relationship with its #sexualhealth.

We begin with the Victorians, who, contrary to popular belief, were obsessed with sex. In the C19, the only known #STIs were syphilis and gonorrhoea. Diagnosis depended on observable symptoms (no blood tests/smears). Effective treatments were non-existent. Image: @ExploreWellcome Image
In 1864 the British government introduced the Contagious Diseases Acts, intended to protect the armed forces through 'regulation' of 'common prostitutes'. The Acts gave police almost-unlimited discretionary powers to arrest any woman they thought might be soliciting. Image: HCPP Image
