There’s a tweet making its rounds that’s truly annoying as it illustrates the stubborn inability/refusal of nice liberal white folks” to be critically self aware, particularly of their own white body privilege & positionality.
See screenshot.

So, a 🧵

👉🏿There’s no such thing as being “apolitical”. Politics is life. Everything about our lives & living is informed by politics & we inform the dynamics of said politics by our participation or lack thereof.

The notion that one is “apolitical” is intentionally ignorant, arrogantly, & usually a cop-out from being held accountable for one’s decisions or lack thereof. It is often the position of a person who holds privilege or body advantage in an unjust & unequal society or …

A Thread About Disappearing History on Wikipedia

1. Once upon a time, Wikipedia had a page about a company named Degussa.
Degussa had an ugly past, related to the extermination of the Jews in Europe.
(Today, that page exists only in the internet archive.)… Image
Degussa's Degesch created Zyklon B.
"In 1930, Degussa ceded 42.5 percent ownership of Degesch to IG Farben and 15 percent to Th. Goldschmidt AG, in exchange for the right to market pesticide products of those two companies through Degesch. Degussa retained managerial control." Image
Holocaust scholars have published lots of studies about Degussa Image

No longer is it necessary to pay attention to my 2019-2020 ramblings/warnings of a global economic reset. Instead, as of June 3, 2020, you can now hear it directly from the source: the World Economic Forum (#WEF).

The World Economic Forum: home of the #FourthIndustrialRevolution as designed and desired by the ruling classes in tandem with the world's most powerful and ruthless corporations and institutions.

Leveraging #COVID19 (& global #protest) for all it's worth, the virus is indeed the new war on terror.

"The Great Reset" - "A better #capitalism and a better world—to help shape the recovery from COVID-19, the Forum has launched the Great Reset Initiative"

I still can't stop being amazed by the 1973 HEW Report, which recommended a US Federal Code for Fair Information Practice. Check this out - it recommended all those goodies that are currently a GDPR trademark, starting with having some sort of DPO in place 1/ :

The UK's Gender Service for Children is a national disgrace that causes immense harm. Which LGBT organisations are speaking up for trans children in their submissions to the Gov LGBT Health…
@stonewalluk response is a huge let down. One point out of 69 is on children's GIDS. It focuses on need for training at CAHMS, not even questioning why trans children have to go anywhere near CAHMS (CAHMS doesn't even want to see trans children) @ruth_hunt
@stonewalluk make a brief reference to waiting times (without stating it's 18 months), an unexplained reference to Gillick competency & a concern about transfer to adult services. @Stonewall recommendations have nothing on trans kids or on shameful UK GIDS @PaulTwocock #Fail
