*HOW MANY ROLLS OF DOWNING ST WALLPAPER?*

UK's richest 1,000 wealth increase since 2009:

571 MILLION💰💰💰

Crony contracts given to Tory donors:

2.4 MILLION 💰💰

Investment in Andrew Neil's #GBeebies:

71,428💰

Average additional annual income from nurse pay rise:

0.4 +👏
The wallpaper cost £840 a roll.

#NHS nurses will receive a pay increase worth less than half a roll of Downing St wallpaper this year – despite their heroics in guiding the country through a deadly pandemic resulting in 150,000 largely avoidable deaths.

#GBeebies investors may be more interested in #INFLUENCE than financial return: £60 MILLION was raised with help from Libertarian billionaires #Cato's John Malone & #Legatum's Christopher Chandler, & hedge funder Paul Marshall who bet big on #Brexit chaos.

While lockdown has been slow for some, it's certainly not been for others who have smelt the winds of change!

#SPACs are bypassing Direct Listings & IPO's in a race to market - Sucking up all that 💰 hunting for returns 📈

#Fintech joining 'Democratise & Digitalise everything'
#China seem poised to become the worlds leading power - #US are on guard! 🧐

Little bit like their former communist friends (Russia) the leadership are getting their Oligarchs/Titans in-line & on-message before their potential big push.

Everything seems to be changing around us

We live in an attention #economy & what #Tweetiatricians have known for decades (#Twitter started in 2006): importance of drawing attention to factual science-based information as compared to #misinformation & #disinformation, especially on #vaccines

You have to be fast & prolific to play catch up to this. I have 77K tweets, a moderate sized band of 6K followers interested enough to tolerate my volume but use of hashtags allows reach across Twittersphere. Trending hashtags = better for riding a way for that attention economy
If is unclear if we are now so siloed that tweets are ineffective with anti-vaxx. But not all anti-vaxx are QAnon

In March 2018, data breach specialist Chris #Vickery was able to gain access to an insecurely guarded online data warehouse set up by #AIQ, giving insights into the range of #digital tools used by the company and showing its hand-in-glove relationship with #CambridgeAnalytica.
#Vickery described what he found to Parliament’s #Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) Committee set up to investigate disinformation and fake news: “a set of sophisticated applications, data management programs, advertising trackers, and information databases
that collectively could be used to #target and #influence individuals through a variety of methods, including automated phone calls, emails, political websites, volunteer canvassing, and #Facebook ads”.

Il me paraît qd même contradictoire que l'idée d'#Universalisme repose aux yeux de certains en grande partie sur celle de #Francophonie.
TOUT peuple, TOUTE culture qui cherche à diffuser préférentiellement SES racines propres fait œuvre de #colonialisme intellectuel.

J'aime ma langue, mais je ne la crois ni plus universelle, ni plus riche que les autres.
Je critique vivement la mainmise de l'anglais (en fait #globish) sur la communication internationale.
Je SAIS que toute politique de rayonnement linguistique d'une sphère culturelle ⤵️
3/n
tte politique de promotion linguistique possède 2 faces:
- l'enrichissement culturel des publics-cibles
ET
- l'arrière-pensée que les apprenants deviennent des "amis", + favorables aux discours ou échanges venant de ladite sphère linguistique et culturelle que d'ailleurs. ⤵️

given that America stands on the knifes edge of the knifes edge, feels like NECSI's stuff on the importance of clearly defined boundaries for preventing conflict between groups is useful

necsi.edu/good-fences-th…
I don't think decentralization into smaller units will magically solve everything, but if it helps prevent civil war, then I consider it a W
long term I of course support the abolition of borders, the disillusion of group identity, the expansion of ones sense of self/circle of care such that all this becomes silly

but we need to survive to reach that point and if decentralization helps with that then cool

New National Security Strategy of #Poland is quite a solid and healthy document, with an adequate understanding of the current and near-future threats. it identifies the "neo-imperial policy" of #Russia as the most serious threat, "pursued also by means of military force". 1/13
2/13 It warns of an outbreak of a conflict "originating from a violent escalation as a result of an incident" due to the #Russia/n "below the threshold of war" activities that could provoke such a conflict, including an international one.
3/13 The document explicitly highlights the increase in internal tensions within the #EU/#NATO as well as actions undertaken by external entities as a "noticeable risk of undermining the coherence of the positions and actions of the member states of NATO and the EU".

Germany has massive research cooperations with #China – often without realizing their background. Research ministry emphasized need for China expertise in 2015-2020 strategy, but even platform initiated by @BMBF_Bund contains wrong information, I report @faznet (in German) 1/
The current China strategy from @BMBF_Bund is offline since a few days - "Publication of a new strategy is not planned", the ministry told me. @maxplanckpress is currently reconsidering its approach. "China is a miracle", 15y ago Beijing repr. of @helmholtz_de said - and now? 2/
For 2019, @helmholtz_de had announced a new China strategy, but there isn't any: The topic is "now of high importance for research policy", hence there would be more consultations with ministries. Confusion everywhere - and problems #influence #dependencies #espionage #dualuse 3/

When we all pray, we unlock information in the collective consciousness. When we ask for clarity, insight, etc. we make it easier for information to come, not only to ourselves, but for psychics working with higher beings to shift humanity. This work shifts the balance of #power. Image
Groups who desire to lead humanity into darkness depend on the people not engaging with their higher-selves and the collective #consciousness. This gives them free #influence over the aspects of ourselves we have abandoned. If we refuse to occupy our spirit, something else will.
When we begin to consciously interact with our spirit we then begin to occupy that shared higher etheric substrate -the higher mind. We do this through mediation, #prayer, spiritual contemplation & is sealed through compassionate action towards ourselves and one another.
