#GaslightingEthiopia 101:
How to support #TPLFinc by undermining GOE using #TPLFcrimes

1/ In their report released on Dec 9, @hrw detailed atrocities perpetrated by #TPLF in #Chennai and #Kobo, between Aug 31 and Sept 9.
The findings of the report are chilling and makes you shudder thinking of what must have happened in areas held by #TPLF for several months.
2/ Yet the report raises more questions than it answers.
What about the 90 days since Sept 9? Why conduct the reports remotely, despite at least some areas being free for 3 months? Why release the report now as #TPLF occupation is ending & more atrocities are coming to light?

1/ CNN on Ethiopia
Season 1 - The CNN TPLF Marriage
CNN published around 60 articles on the Tigray Conflict from Nov 3 to date. We all know about their biased reporting and clear support for #TPLFTerroristGroup but check these facts out
2/ CNN actively developed 9 editorials between Nov 5 & Nov 13 and 0 for the rest of the month with the exception of 2 on Mai Kadra they couldn’t ignore on the 22nd and the 26th. Coincidentally, @reda_getachew went offline since Nov 15th
3/ He stayed offline for 3½ months till end of Feb except two tweets on 4th and 22nd of Dec. During 3½ months CNN made ONLY 4 articles related to the war. Coincidentally, both the resumption of CNN’s active reporting & @reda_getachew|s twitter comeback happened March 1.

Unfortunately @PowerUSAID @SamanthaJPower appears to have learned absolutely nothing from her visit. This interview with NPR is self-regarding and childish.

This IV undermines an positivity from her somewhat conciliatory remarks at her press conference in Addis.
The delegation of responsibility for diplomacy over the #HornOfAfrica made to the @USAID agency needs to be revoked. The @StateDept will struggle to disentangle @PowerUSAID's ego from this conflict if she remains in any manner associated with it.
The U.S Govt. needs to now make a bold step if there is to be any hope of restoring any order to the #HornOfAfrica. At this stage it is unclear that they wish to do so, and inside Ethiopia their credibility has been deeply undermined by @PowerUSAID's visit.

美國波特蘭Powell’s Books被譽為世界最大的獨立書店,50周年慶選出了50本推薦書。他們的書單一向靠譜,非常的美國、多元、在地,非文學與文學兼顧,也包含許多對大眾流行文化的關注,確實不愧獨立書店選書風格。

台灣譯本很少。

3. American War《無人倖免:2074-2095,美國第二次南北戰爭》(簡中)

是本虛構末日小說,形式有些特別,浩劫餘生的主線故事交錯著一則則虛構的新聞報導組成,構成一種沈浸於未來時空的現實感,當然是對人類愚蠢開足了嘲諷。

(各推數字僅為原書單排序)

4. And the Band Played On《世紀的哭泣》(簡中)

藍迪.席爾茲,是全美主流報紙第一位專職報導愛滋病的新聞記者,台灣曾有翻過一本《同性戀平權鬥士》(早已絕版),此書探究愛滋病如何在美國發現並發散,時代雜誌百大非虛構經典。

2021普立茲獎公布,小說獎由路易絲·厄德里奇的《The Night Watchman》獲得。

應該是得獎最多、最著名的美國印第安女作家,台灣似乎沒翻譯過,但已有好幾部簡體中文版。

這篇列出普立茲小說獎21世紀的20本得獎作品(2012年從缺),大部分都能找到中文譯本。

相當美國視角,深探社會現狀(原住民、黑人、低下階層)或美國觀察(北韓、越南),而且偏厚重;其中有幾本在題材與形式皆非常突出,讀得下去就會想讀兩遍的那種。

2001《卡瓦利與克雷的神奇冒險》

麥可・謝朋被視為沙林傑接班人,這本以美國漫畫史黃金時代為背景,用魔術、漫畫、超級英雄堆砌的暢銷小說,50萬字、700頁,讓他在38歲贏得普立茲小說獎。

前面需要點耐心,中段讓人廢寢忘食。

簡體是相同譯本。

125位英美作家列出自己最喜歡的十本書,第一名10分、第十名1分,就得出了各種排名,最後一共544種書,在2007年集結出版《The Top Ten》,這網站匯集了所有資料。

真不相信大家都這麼喜歡(甚至讀完過)《Ulysses》⋯⋯
#關於書的書

亨利米勒也想知道作家都喜歡哪些書,但資料實在太少,於是他很認真寫了《我生命中的書》,甚至列出影響最深的100本書。

若我列出 #關於書的書 ,這本排名第一,自由大膽且誠實;而且他認為人應該讀得越來越少、不是越來越多。可惜絕版已久,遇到二手書千萬別猶豫。

而在goodreads上 #關於書的書 綜合評分最高的,則是安・法第曼寫的小書《Ex Libris》(愛書人的喜悅),18篇有趣的文章,例如結婚五年生完小孩後才下定決心〈圖書聯姻〉(混書架啦)⋯⋯

她父母就有7000冊藏書,亨利米勒寫《我生命中的書》時的書架不超過500本。
