»#YuriBezmenov may well go down in history as a #saint by the #survivors of the generations to come.

His statements about the global “#communist agenda” offers an opportunity for students of #history, #philosophy and #economics - world wide - to take note of #reality and to
..
.. reflect on the identity of their intellectual enemy, the dynamics of #capitalism in economics, and the role of #violence in politics.

Firstly, what is the “western identity”? From my understanding .. the #western identity has been shaped primarily by what it has resisted:
..
..
namely monarchic #despotism, authoritative #collectivism, and the infringement on the sovereignty of the #individual. You can even say that, to an extent, #Christianity itself followed from an already existing identity (i.e. the #Socratic divination of the individual).

It's all @kelvy_bird 's fault, haha ! Her book made me try to map a four-fold unified evolutionary scene: the #evolution of Life, means, ends & the #sustainability discipline/#metrics. Yes, I know it needs to be improved. #generativescribing in Plato's cave
@kelvy_bird LEFT: Let me explain what came to my mind, while trying to draw this . The left side obviously is about #Spirit, #God or the #Creator and it was @TimFreke who made me aware that we are now entering a next evolutionary stage: the development & story of #soul.
@kelvy_bird @TimFreke UPPER: For me it's a #Maturity Model of #Stewardship for our vital #capital resources. With our egoistic human nature, we depleted (as usual) our capital resources. #Sustainability marked the barrier in context & #Regeneration is all about (re)paying our debt

To mark the occasion of #LaborDay2019, I will transcribe an interesting, 91-year old #German text on #Marxism that has never entered the #internet before this post of mine. (I tried quite a lot to find the text, to no avail.) I will manually transcribe it, then translate it.
..
..I won't give the source, and also won't say WHY I don't give the source.

I repeat that it is a literal quote (from a 1928 publication), probably published during the #WeimarRepublic:

"#Marximus .. [ist] .. staats-, gesellschaft- und kulturzerstörend .. gegen jeden Staat,..
..jede Gesellschaft, jede Kultur ... ist #Marxismus ein #Aufruhr der #Eigensucht
gegen das #Gemeinwohl, also das Gegenteil jedes wahren #Sozialismus, denn Sozialismus muss stets das Wohl des Ganzen dem des Teiles voranstellen ... seine „Vorfurcht“ [sic; see dictionary entry

Today we release our annual @wiiw_news Autumn #Forecast Report, with macroeconomic projections for #CESEE out to 2020. Below, a thread on the highlights 1/13
#Growth still looks quite good for most, notable upgrades this time for #Poland, #Serbia, #Hungary. But downgrades for several #EU members, plus #Turkey, #Macedonia and #Belarus. 2/13
Over the #forecast period we expect best growth performance in #EUCEE and #WesternBalkans, although both will slow by 2020. Outlook for #CIS & #Ukraine weaker. 3/13

DO YOU KNOW THESE FORMS OF CAPITAL?
SOCIAL CAPITAL
Influence and connections are social capital. A person or entity who has ‘good social capital’ can ask favors, influence decisions, and communicate efficiently.
Social capital is of primary importance in politics, business, and community organizing
FINANCIAL CAPITAL
Financial capital: Money, currencies, securities and other instruments of the global financial system. It is our primary tool for exchanging goods services with other humans
INTELLECTUAL CAPITAL
Intellectual capital is best described as a ‘knowledge’ asset. The majority of the current global education system is focused on imparting intellectual capital — whether or not it is the most useful form of capital for creating resilient and thriving

CAPITAL OR NOT.

For so many Startups, the excuse for not actually starting a business or executing an idea is the capital to start with.

Some have had to quit an idea to pursue the needed cash but never came back to the idea. Only a few young minds could manage through.
2/4
Few sources below could help with that needed fund:
*Friends
*Family members
*Angel Investors
*Venture Capitalists
*Banks
*NGOs
3/4
The list above is actually supposed to help out with the needed resources but if none works out, use what you have to get what is needed not what is desired, but remember to always be godly.

1 / DEPLORABLE WORLD
A story written with no plan or script through nano-chapters using the prompts from #vss365 #AmWriting #SunScribbles #SunWIP #SciFi #Satsplat #BadWordSat
#Swim steady and firm”, 15 yr old David told the others. They had been prepared. Their go-bags had the clothes approved by Deplorables and they had a small list of safe-houses in the mainland. All the adults in the island died do make their escape possible. #vss365 #AmWriting
In the mainland, it was safer to marry the kids to each other. They would live with their assigned parents according to the fake identity genealogy. What used to be known as the #cycle of abuse had been normalized. They had to blend in and hide in plain sight. #vss365 #AmWriting

The #legitimacy of any form of #government is not and cannot be based upon #consent, but upon how well it protects the rights of those who refuse to consent.
When the bullshit is stripped away, #Socialism is #theft, and can never be a moral form of political economy, because it cannot protect the rights of those who refuse to consent to the theft of their earned wealth. Those who do consent are not prevented under any other system…
from engaging in #voluntary #cooperative #ownership of #capital. Therefore, #Socialism is not defined by voluntary participation, but by #coercion, or #theft, a universal #moral harm. #Intent is not #magic. Good intent and good works do not and cannot excuse the theft.

Have you been buying lands in the Ibeju Lekki axis of Lagos? Cheap cheap lands right and you probably thought everything is good? Well i hate to break it to you, There are no cheap lands in Lagos. If it is cheap, there are risks involved. I'll explain.
Thread!!!!!!!
1. Often times i've had people call or message me to ask about cheap lands they can buy & build in Lagos state. Talking about d lands advertised by their church members for 800k or less. Well, patronize your members o but their are some facts #realestate agents wont tell you
2. Majority of the lands you buy for cheap comes with a #Land title called Excision in process, Okay good. I guess you will say but “#Excision is the right of the indigenous land owners” right? YES you are very correct but...

#KarlMarx200 thread:

1. In my own #research, I have found Marx's notion of #contradiction particularly useful.

In his analysis, Marx noted how the contradiction between #labor and #capital accounted for many of the social dynamics of #capitalism.
2. The contradiction does not necessarily mean #conflict, but tendencies that "pull" in different directions and are in a dialectical relation to each other.

The contradiction of labor/capital can be accommodated in different ways and with very different consequences.
3. I like how this notions focuses on changing social dynamics. In my own work on #land use of #Mengen speakers in #PapuaNewGuinea, I've used the notion of #contradiction, to think about social forces underpinning Mengen land ownership and use.

1/ #THREAD Ah, teeny tiny demographical instance of something, hastily wound up to a coy, careful kind of un-endorsement of something else, even uses paper in a medical / scientific journal to try substantiate this un-endorsement placement #Beware #BullAtWork How 'well-connected'
2/ and how reminiscent of a certain type of anti-vaccination trolling / disinformation.😬 #Questions such as: A/what percentage of the population actually use the product B/ what percentage of that specific demographic have been injured seriously, in a clinical sense or in the --
3/ particular mode described in the, eh, 'article' ? C/ So even if as seems likely this only verifiably happened to a tiny % of users,& even if the argument that it is all just public knowledge/public info. is applied so it appears to be, lets say for the heck of it, 'authentic',

1/ Manu (The progenitor of Humankind)
All different races of Mankind are derived from Manu and Shradha. The current Manu is Vaivasvata Manu.
2/ The word Manu literary means man but it is a title given to the progenitor of mankind. According to Hindu Puranas there are many kalpas (One day of Lord Brahma the creator) and each Kalpa has 14 manvantara and each manvatara has one manu. So basically each Kalpa has 14 Manus.
3/ The current manu of the present manvantara is Shraddhadeva or Vaivasvata Manu of this current Kalpa. He is the son of Vivasvat (Probably Surya) and is therefore also known as Manu-vaivasvata.
