La 1ra globalización fue española:
La #carreradeindias, fue la más duradera, eficaz, decisiva y exitosa operación naval de la historia. Un sistema de navegación e intercambios comerciales, culturales, sociales y de todo tipo, que se dieron entre España y las Indias.
Sigue hilo.
Duró desde 1503 hasta la firma del Decreto de Libre comercio en 1778. Tras el descubrimiento de Filipinas, a la #carreradeindias se unen los productos llegados desde Manila a #Acapulco en el Galeón de #Manila. Ambas rutas constituyen la primera globalización.

#España organizó desde #Sevilla una red de comunicaciones que, por 1ra vez en la historia, adquiere dimensiones planetarias. Además, entre 1580 y 1640 se forma Unión Dinástica de #Portugal y #España por lo que la monarquía hispánica fue la total dominadora de los océanos.

Most of Europe has a serious fossil-fuel addiction problem.
#France is heavy on nuclear.
#Spain + #Portugal—lots of oil.
Coal in the east.
But check out #Denmark (the only place where renewables predominate) and the other Scandinavian countries (hydro).
Similar map for provinces of #Canada, where I live. The West and #Quebec have a lot of water...and thus hydroelectricity.

Not trying to make an invidious comparison here. Canada of course *produces* massive amounts of fossil fuels.

This "Sticky Dough" account from Kiev, set up in February '22, cuts to the chase and has a straight-up old-school Azov badge in his profile pic. Wolfsangel plus Sonnenrad. Image
And here's a Petlyura fan account with a single Wolfsangel and two Balkenkreuz's. It's worth noting the handle starts with "oberstu"...as in, Obersturmbannfuehrer? That would mix a couple of historical periods, but I get the idea. 🤨 Image
"Ukraine ueber alles, bitch" says even more more than that Wolfsangel over there. 🧐 Image

JUST IN: Portugal has denied ‘golden visas’ to Russians recently. As on Sunday, total of ten Russian citizen's applications who applied for Portuguese “golden visas,” which provide residence permits in exchange for investment, were turned down since late February. Image
Portugal introduced a complete ban on golden visas for Russians as part of EU sanctions imposed on Moscow over its military operation in Ukraine. Earlier, Portugal had issued 431 “golden visas” to Russians, including seven Visas since the beginning of 2022.
Since the launch of the golden visa program, Portugal has reportedly attracted €277.8 million in investment.

#Portugal is one of the best places to get your #EUcitizenship back.

You'll need:
🇵🇹 5 years residency
🇵🇹 A2 Portuguese language skills
🇵🇹 A clean criminal record

Here's 7 essential steps to plan a move. A thread 🧵

#FBPE #expatlife #RejoinEU #Europe
Step 1: Decide which residency visa fits your situation best.

👉 D7 visa: For retirees, online biz owners, remote workers
👉 Golden visa: For investors in property or funds
👉 HQA visa: For investors from tech/research
Step 2: Decide whether you want to live full-time (at least 6 months per year) in Portugal.

👉 If yes, choose the D7 visa
👉 If no, you'll need one of the investor visas

Portugal gives more flexibility in return for higher investment

This thread has very revealing data showing that mRNA-vaccinations create majority of the covid cases. Largest covid waves come always after the booster rounds. Not before. AFTER.

Isn't it weird coincidence that the EU suffered the most largest covid wave right after the boosting started?

Ofcourse this can be coincidence but with
what possibility the very same thing happened also in every EU memeber country? Keep reading...

A short thread on #EUcitizenship 🧵🇪🇺

When Brexit happened in 2016, I knew 🇬🇧 was no longer my country.

I had to choose an alternative & work to become its citizen.

First I picked Belgium 🇧🇪

With only 5 years to apply for citizenship, I thought it was a good choice.
I did my masters degree in Brussels in 2010, and enjoyed the time I spent there.

But the Belgian weather got me down, and the tax system for freelancers/remote workers was complex & unappealing.

So I sought an alternative.
In October 2019 I visited #Lisbon for the first time in my life. 😍

By January 2020, I'd packed up my UK life and relocated to #Portugal for the long-term.

The end goal? Portuguese citizenship.

🚨 Overturning of #RoevsWade is a shocking development.

Here's a thread with 11 reasons why Americans should consider a move to Portugal in 2022. 🧵
#1. Political stability
Fed up with toxic polarization and its fallout?
Worried about a Trump comeback?
Alarmed by recent news from the Supreme Court?

In Portugal, you can leave all these stresses behind in an environment of sanity & stability.
#2. Low-cost/free healthcare

Sick of spending huge amounts of money on health insurance? 🤦‍♀️

Portugal's a state healthcare system is open to foreign residents and offers heavily subsidized/free healthcare to all.
