I am reading Ahmed El Shamsy’s recent book on the impact of #printing on modern discourses on #Islamic scholarship. Like his previous book, it is extremely readable and insightful. I will post some questions and intriguing passages from the chapters that interest me most./1
In the introduction, the author tells us that he will cover the 19th c. which saw the marginalisation of the classical Islamic work, the adoption of printing & rebirth of the classical heritage. Muslim reformers reasserted the classical tradition to undermine the postclassical./2
I think ch. 1 will be the most interesting for me: it names two key factors in the marginalisation of the classical works: "the dramatic decline of traditional libraries and the voracious appetites and deep pockets of European collectors of Arabic books."(p.6)/3

More whites than blacks killed by police in US

Black cop more likely to kill black than white cop

Considering VASTLY higher level of armed violent & lethal crime carried carried out by blacks are FEWER blacks killed by police even pro rata

Se o assassinato de #GeorgeFloyd lembrou o de #EricGarner, a resposta da população lembra a resposta à absolvição dos policiais que espancaram #RodneyKing em 1992, em Los Angeles. Mineápolis em convulsão social #minneapolisriots

أتت الشرطة بناءاً على إتصال يتهم شخصاً بالتزوير
المتهم شخص أسمر، يجلس في سيارته، وإسمه جورج فلويد
4 رجال شرطة أتوا وأخرجوه من سيارته وقيّدوه
يبدو أنه رفض الدخول إلى سيارة الشرطة
فطرحوه أرضاً، ووضع 3 منهم رُكَبَهُم على رقبته وجسده
ظل يقول لهم أنه لا يستطيع التنفس...حتى مات!

قالوا أنه قاوم إلقاء القبض عليه
لكن ظهرت مقاطع فيديو تظهر كذب كلامهم
إدارة الشرطة أعطت أولئك الأربعة إجازة مدفوعة الأجر
لكن إنتشار مقطع الفيديو أحدث هيجاناً كبيراً
فقررت الشرطة عزلهم
ومع تطور الأحداث قررت توجيه تهمة القتل لمن وضع ركبته على رقبة جورج

خرج مئات المتظاهرين في مدينة منيابوليس بولاية مينيسوتا
وقامت الشرطة بإستخدام الرصاص المطاطي والغاز المسيل للدموع
تم الهجوم على مركز شرطة ومحاصرة آخر
وتهشيم واجهات المحلات ونهب بعضها
وحدثت محاولات للسطو على بنك
وإنتقلت المظاهرات والفوضى إلى مدينة لوس أنجلوس بولاية كاليفورنيا

Cases of #pillage by corporate actors investigated and brought to justice are rare.

Very rare.

Still, TRIAL International in recent years has submitted no less than 4 such criminal cases to the Office of the Attorney General (OAG) of #Switzerland.
1/
The first complaint concerned the role played by #Argor-Heraeus in refining several tonnes of gold illegally extracted from the #DRC.
The OAG decided in 2015 to close it down.
Not being a civil party, TRIAL was unable to appeal the decision.

2/
The second case, filed in 2016, concerns a Swiss businessman, Christoph Huber, currently under (very slow) investigation by the OAG for his role in the #looting of raw materials in the #DRC.

When Francis #Fukuyama, in his 1992 book, disclosed the "end of history" #thesis, he became a world celebrity.

The formulation was simple, but devastating for the left: faced with the evidence of the disappearance of the #SovietUnion, he could affirm that #communism had failed..
and that #capitalism emerged victorious as the only system that guaranteed #peace, #freedom & #equality.

However, in 2010 Fukuyama acknowledged that he had not understood the meaning of the disappearance of the Soviet Union and the #European socialist bloc.
Fukuyama had believed in the drunkard #Yeltsin (the face of the gravedigger & #thief who prevailed with blood & fire, supported by the #West, with the coup d'etat in #Moscow in 1993) and in the capacity of liberalism to satisfy human needs and, In addition, in 1992, ...
