"Fragile"《玻璃心》mocks the oversensitivity of cyber-nationalists, internet trolls that guard #China against criticism.

🧵"It might Break Your Pinky Heart"

Paid cyber trolls: "fifty-centers" (五毛 *wumao*).
Unpaid cyber nationalists: "little pinks" (#小粉红).

The name recalls the color of a popular online nationalist forum. Many are young women.

Why are post-Brexit N.Ireland politics so fraught?

There’s some illuminating data in @ARK_info NI Life&Times survey

We’ve asked Qs since 2016 on perceived impact of #Brexit on the prospect of Irish unification

This thread & @UKandEU blog explain:
ukandeu.ac.uk/northern-irela…

1/6
In 2016, a clear majority in NI thought #Brexit made no difference to likelihood of Irish unity or their views about it.

#Unionists didn’t want or expect it.

#Nationalists wanted it but didn’t expect it any time soon.

Those who were ‘Neither’ didn't think it changed much.

2/6
By end 2020, the majority in NI think #Brexit makes a united Ireland more likely.

Nationalists' expectations grew steeply over the 5 yrs

A less steep but similar trajectory for Neithers

Over 2020, i.e. post-WA, the largest proportion of unionists came to believe this too

In 70 years, Hindus didn't understand that a family made India a Muslim nation. But in 5 years, Muslims understood that Modi was creating a Hindu nation.
Country was cut into 2 pieces, but no sound came from anywhere. Half Kashmir gone, no noise?

Tibet went, there was no rebellion?
Wounds like reservation, emergency, Tashkent, Shimla, Sindhu were given, but no one cared
2G, Coal, CWG, Augusta Westland, Bofors like blur but no noise
Veto power was given to china, no train were stopped.
2/9
Brave heart like Lal Bahadur Shastri was lost, no candle was lit and nobody demanded a CBI inquiry
Leaders like Madhavrao, Rajesh Pilot were killed, made no difference
But as soon as beef was stopped, the catastrophe ensued

My conclusion is there is a direct connection between the USA #Election2020 and the implementation of the UN @UN #Agenda2030

Trump stands in the way of the advancement of the #NewWorldOrder by the UN @UN.
A Democrat Joe Biden win would definitely facilitate furthering the #Agenda2030.

The Democrats have stated they will re-join the Paris Accord and support the UN @UN.

This alone demonstrates the #USElectionResults2020 is more than an internal #Election2020 in the USA.

Any (pseudo) #Nationalists in #India who think that #Coronavirus #pandemic and the changes in #geopolitics presents an opportunity to shift economic power away from #China and to #India should understand shifts in #Energy.

Big shifts in geopolitical balance of pwoer have always depended on catching the latest wave in just the right time. Time was when the world wanted silks and spices and jewels and gemstones; and India had it all.
More recently, everyone wanted the manufactures of the industrial revolution. British colonialism and mercantilism kept India and China out of the running at the time of that wave. The next wave was oil and fossil fuels to power cars and trucks and power stations.

With the resurgence of the mad boys and girls in red berets and red overalls it looks like all the inroads we had made upto now towards a #TwoPartyState is starting to be eroded.
#SADecides2019
The Radicals in @EFFSouthAfrica and the Nationalists in @VFPlus (both with 68 seats) gained much ground here plus the accumulated votes of the Mickey Mouse Parties (18 seats) didn't do any good to the beloved @Our_DA losing in total 88 seats combined.
SAD 😔!
Also exposed was the fact that we are not as such an equal society as we thought we are
The @IECSouthAfrica #ElectionNight Map shows how divided our society still is with @Our_DA more prevalent in colored communities as whilst @MYANC strong as expected in predominantly BlackAreas
