Was nutzt #sozialeGerechtigkeit, wenn Putin-Russland die Menschen unterdrückt? Was nutzen #Bildung​seinrichtungen, wenn sie von #PutinHuilo's 2S19 zerstört werden? Was nützt #Rente, wenn Rentner ermordet werden #BorisRomantschenko?
Solange der (nach #UmbertoEco's #Urfaschismus) lupenreine Faschist #PutinHuilo die #Ukraine, Russland und Belarus angreift, muß Solidarität mit diesen Ländern und Völkern sein. #NieWieder #Faschismus! #StandWithUkraine #StandWithRussia against #PutinHuilo!…
Daher @dieLinke, verlassen Sie die Fünfte Kolonne gegen #Kyjiw!
Eine soziale Partei braucht Deutschland dringend. Eine Partei, die überwacht, daß #100Mrd #Sondervermögen zur Abschreckung Putin-Russland​s ϗ zum Kampf gegen den #Faschismus #PutinHuilo​s am Besten eingesetzt werden.

"[O]ften inquisitors create heretics. [...] Inquisitors repress the heretical putrefaction so vehemently that many are driven, to share in it, in their hatred for the judges."

-Umberto Eco, The Name of the Rose.
I dearly miss #UmbertoEco with his clinical insights on everything, from religion/belief to fascism. The quote above also reminded me of Arthur Koestler's Darkness at Noon, and in turn the Stalinist purges it was based on. A must read book for our times, I you ask me.
It's ironic that Stalin, the militant atheist, used methods that the Spanish Inquisition would have been proud of, to break down dissidents, on random pretenses, just like the former. And although the scale of those two is probably incomparable to other such instances ...

Avui recomanació cinèfila comparativa, tres obres diferents lligades pel vampirisme d'identitat:
- "Persona" (1966) d'Ingmar Bergman
- "3 women" (1977) de Robert Altman
- "Mulholland drive" (2001) de David Lynch

(Entre pel·li i pel·li es recomana un temps de repòs.) ImageImageImage
Seguint amb pel·lícules amb paral·lelismes:
- "La mort i la donzella" (1994) de Polanski
- "Hard candy" (2005) de David Slade

(Clar que amb Polanski també hi ha una altra relació més tèrbola. Bé, en fi...) ImageImage
Quan s'apaguen els llums:
- "Sunset Boulevard" (Billy Wilder, 1950)
- "Què se n'ha fet, de Baby Jane?" (Robert Aldrich, 1962)

L'altra cara de la moneda suposo que seria "Llums d'escena" (Charles Chaplin, 1952). I si no compensa, com diu la cançó, "que vinguin els pallassos". ImageImageImage

In tempi in cui si prova a negare la possibilità di un ritorno al fascismo occorre rispolverare i 14 punti che, secondo Umberto Eco, delineano questa forma di totalitarismo. [1/15]

Esempi: il presepe, il crocifisso, il rito dell'ampolla... [2/15]

Esempi: uno su tutti negare la validità di conquiste fondamentali della scienza come i vaccini, le proposte per una green economy, lo stesso cambiamento climatico. [3/15]
