The tacit contract between the @WSJ and its readers is: ideology on the editorial page, reality in the news pages. Money talks, bullshit walks. Reality's well-known anticapitalist bias means hewing too closely to ideology will make you broke, and unable to push your ideology.

🇸🇳#Senegal: only peaceful transfers of power since independence!

Rich & rare tradition of #democracy in W. #Africa.

Sadly, past 2 presidents toyed with 3rd terms.

Wade tried in 2012 & triggered violence.

Now Pres. Macky Sall @Macky_Sall flirts with same destructive idea. ImageImageImageImage
I was working from #Senegal in 2012 & saw how far then-President Wade had gone astray from initial high hopes.

Like bringing in North Koreans to erect a pricey monument, then demanding a 35% cut of ticket prices because he felt the idea was his intellectual property. Image
When Pres. Wade tried to extend his term in 2012, #Senegal's people backed him down.

One opposition figure seen in the streets?

Now-president @Macky_Sall

11 years later, he's considering the same play.

You'd think he would remember the forces his predecessor unleashed. Image

1. quello che sta accadendo in Italia è di una gravità che non ha eguali in Europa: attivisti contestano la politica che quando era di moda essere femministe,era femminista,quando è di moda essere anti-femministe, è anti-femminista,e vengono denunciate

2. voi mi dovete spiegare in quale democrazia liberale europea, attivisti che contestano pacificamente un politico finiscono denunciati per *violenza privata*? Questo fatto deve farci paura. Se eleggi quelli che hanno il busto di Mussolini in casa, ti ritrovi così

Video du Dalai Lama, la réaction de l'ancien premier-ministre Tibétain, un example classique de DARVO soupoudré des mêmes "arguments" culturels qui ne tiennent pas la route.

Former prime minister: Lobsang Sangay is classical DARVO.

Pourquoi l'info est devenue virale après 5 semaines ? parce qu'on l'a trouvé et qu'on a exposé ce comportement inacceptable quand il a été trouvé, on passe pas nos vies à suivre le Dalai Lama et la moindre de… twitter.com/i/web/status/1…
L'argument de : le Dalai Lama est une personne qui aime jouer avec les autres et leurs attributs corporels, n'est pas un argument, on s'en tape complètement qu'il touche la barbe ou la moustache de X ou Y, c'est des adultes. ça n'a rien à voir.

Ho condiviso con il presidente il mio pensiero secondo il quale gli #USA avevano pesantemente sottostimato l'umiliazione subita dalla #Russia nell'aver perso la guerra fredda la conseguente dissoluzione dell'#URSS

L'arroganza, dopo il collasso, degli ufficiali governativi, accademici, uomini d'affari, politici nel dire ai russi come dovevano condurre i loro affari interni e esteri ha portato ad un risentimento e ad un'amarezza profondi e duraturi.

1/ Reminder: Prior to 2011 #NATO War, #Libya had the Highest Standard of Living in Africa

By Timothy Bancroft-Hinchey

In 2011, #NATO launched an illegal, savage attack against the country with the Highest Human Development Index in Africa. Let us see where Libya stands today.
2/ When #Cameron, #Sarkozy, #Obama, #Clinton and that sickening clique of #warmongering, interfering, imperialist thugs decided to attack Libya in 2011, in an attack planned and orchestrated for months in advance, they told us their fight was not against the people of #Libya.
3/ Looking at #Libya today, who were they fooling and who is suffering? Under international law regarding the scope of applicability, there are rules as to the wanton and brazen use of force turning a peaceful situation into an ongoing theater of conflict.
