After Modi's #Trichy youth conference, the next morning when police were clearing up their mini-control room, they found 5 strange boys who were roaming there with bags. When police enquired - "sir, we are frm Subramaniapuram in Trichy. Whatever political meeting or conference
is held in this ground, we come here on the same night or morning hours to collect the #Liquor bottles to sell in the scrap shop for 50 paisa to Re.1 per bottle & we used to earn Rs 200 to Rs 400 on each such event. Even in the last #DMK meeting the next day we collected around
1500 bottles. But for Modi's #BJP meeting, we could not find even a single bottle in the whole ground. We are coming round & around & not a single bottle in any corner of the ground in Trichy, we are much disappointed, sir!". #Police seem were stunned & pleasantly surprised

Aujourd’hui, j’ai un peu de #temps (je blague), et je tente un #thread #scpo sur la #démocratie, parce que c’est un tout petit peu d‘actualité. Et oui, je vais mettre des #mèmes Internet parce que, en vrai autocrate, je trouve cela très très drôle. Prêts ?
2) D’abord, la #démocratie, ce n’est pas la #République (la chose publique). La République, c’est moi...euh, c’est quand le #pouvoir est exercé par tout ou partie du peuple (exit la monarchie) et que les élus représentent plus que le peuple (la #Nation dixit #Sieyes).
3) Les #députés représentent l’intérêt #général plus que le peuple. Utile pour voter une loi impopulaire, comme l’interdiction de la peine de mort (#Badinter), ou la taxe carbone sur l’essence. Encore faut-il bien prouver l’intérêt général (n’est ce pas les gilets jaunes ?).

{PANAS DINGIN TURKI DAN RUSIA : SULTAN ERDOGAN VS TSAR PUTIN}

A thread tentang rumitnya hubungan #Turki & #Rusia.

Turki dan Rusia telah menjalin hubungan diplomatik selama 500 tahun. Namun, sejarah panjang keduanya ternyata didominasi oleh cerita - cerita seperti intrik, saling curiga, konflik, hingga perang.
Ketegangan di antara keduanya, telah dimulai sejak era antara Kekaisaran Ottoman dan Tsar Rusia. Hal itu bisa dilihat dari catatan sejarah yang menorehkan peperangan antar keduanya pada abad 17 hingga 19.

Gegenüber von Angela #Merkel wohnt Satan im Pergamonaltar

n-tv meinte 2006 in der Offenbarung werde der Satan als Drache oder Schlange dargestellt, während das römische #Reich und der Kaiser als Biest beschrieben werde. Wikipedia meint, dass in der Offenbarung des
Johannes von einem "Thron des #Satan" die Rede sei, der in Pergamon stehe. Vor über 100 Jahren wurde der Altar von Pergamon von seinem ursprünglichen Standort im heutigen Bergama in der #Türkei nach Berlin geholt.
Der Pergamonaltar ist ein Altar, der den griechischen Gottheiten
geweiht war. Er stammt aus der Stadt Pergamon von der es in Offenbarung 2, 12-13 heißt, dass dort „der Satan wohnt“. Heute steht er im Pergamonmuseum auf der Museumsinsel in #Berlin.
Im Jahr 1909 wurde in #Deutschland die sogenannte „Berliner Erklärung“ verfasst.

Favorite facts about #literacy

#Literacy is dynamic, continually developing and unfolds in new and unexpected ways. Learning the inception of #writing and its trajectory to the forms we use now has me excited to observe how literacy continues to develop in the future

I particularly was surprised by the fact that early prints were made to be similar to handwriting, I thought that was quite genius idea! Also, I liked the fact that printed #books were given to the people whose main job was to decorate them! Image

"The #Hoodhbhoy Cult" a #Thread:

'It matters what's ones ideology is before taking in their knowledge'

Keeping this in view,

Parvez Hoodhbhoy has proven himself as the Ideological opponent of 🇵🇰. People like these were once termed as the biggest enemies of the state.

(n/1)
He is openly opposed to #Islam, #Army, 2 #Nation Ttheory, #Jinnah and Iqbal etc

His criticism would not hold weight in any balanced society and they would ignore him since he is taking/criticizing/attacking about stuff he doesn't have knowledge about.

(n/2)
He is a physicist and talking about philosophy, religion and politics...

It is equivalent of a local canteen owner being invited on a debate about military strategy or world economy.

I find it extremely ironic that people are flocking to his side because...

My essay "Civilizationist Invectivity. The Sophistication and Hybridization of Right-Wing #Populism in Times of Post-Democracy, Post-Photography, and #SocialMedia" was published in this reader, edited by @LKInvectivity & Thorsten König: @mlewandowsky
Key aspects:
1. The hybridization of right-wing populism correlates with the hybridization of #photography and is reinforced by social media.
2. Precursors to hybrid right-wing populism can be found in the hybrid aesthetics of #Fascism when avant-garde art dynamized politics.
Like today’s alt-right, the early 20th century Italian Fascists despised traditional conservatism and stressed that their #ideology was all about movement. It is salient to underline that avant-garde art is not left-wing by origin, as it is often assumed. That's wishful thinking.

PDP-Mehbooba Mufti. A #Thread

The latest remarks by PDP claiming to fight #abrogation of #Article370 comes to no surprise. The party helmed by Ms Mehbooba #Mufti has a long history of peddling controversies in #Kashmir to gain political traction
(1/19) Image
#PDP was founded in 1998 Late #Mufti Mohammed Sayeed. Interestingly he was the state's Home Minister when the fateful abduction of Rubaiya Sayeed(his daughter)took place in 1989. Many believes this was the turning point in #Kashmir's history which propelled it into chaos
(2/19) Image
PDP Government’s blunders in #BhuranWani incident in 2016 saw a massive breakdown of governance in the history #Kashmir second only to 1989’s unrest.
It marked the revival of #Separatism & #terrorism, which had remarkably waned in the whole of Kashmir, between..

The Modi Govt seems to have lost its #Plot.

Their #Vision & #Direction, both,have gone #astray.

They look hell-bound to push #India & its #Economy in the #Darkness.

#People of India continue to #suffer because of #Brainless #Aimless #DecisionMaking by the #Govt.

#GodSaveIndia
They do not know what they r doing, but they think whatever they r doing is Correct.

They r hallucinated.

They r suffering from a #SelfRighteous #Syndrome.

That's sounds too #Dangerous for the #Country & its #People !

The Country cannot be left on the Whims of a #Psychopath !
@BJP4India & @INCIndia have become only a #Liability on the #Nation.

#Leaders like @RahulGandhi @narendramodi & @AmitShah r #Misleading the #Nation & taking #India & its #people in the #Wrong #Direction.

India & its People r much more than #BJP #Congress & some #Media Groups.

1) Experiencing better physical function with the addition of prescription pain medication is NOT a moral failing. For the intractable pain person, this can be life altering in the best way.
Now, it has become stigmatized and corrupted into polarizing political and societal -
Judgment, gaslighting and scapegoating. Plus, new positions of power, for those willing to forgo human morality for the sake of instant professional accolades.
Being anti opioid will soon go out of style. And trust me- not forgotten who conducted that train.
The ones who stood by and let it happen, or did nothing. The ones who were warned but continued to be complicit. All will be part of this historic human tragedy. @Oregon should be acting, should be fixing.

Your aim of intended destruction to incite hatred fear & despair in all of Us had #failed. Although, it may be Ur objective, after all of that elaborate planning & the perverse & wretched efforts on Ur part, U still failed to drive a divide among the #Muslims in this #Nation. ☝🏻
Firstly, let’s explain to you that we, as #Muslims, believe in the unseen. This belief is an essential part of the Muslim #faith and one of the characteristics of those whom Allāh ﷻ described as (conscious of Allāh).

#Allahﷻ
We read in the Quran what it means, "This is the only Book (Qur’an) about which there is no doubt, a guidance for those conscious of Allah – Who believe in the unseen, establish prayer, and spend out of what We have provided for them." (Quran, Al-Baqarah, Ayah 3).

It's now painfully clear and beyond any doubt: 1. That the sunny, cost-free, easy-access uplands, posited by the Brexit cult, are mendacious fantasy. 2. That the ever-growing costs, downsides and consequences of Brexit are very real and intellectually indisputable.
#BrexitChaos
We may tire of confronting the undisputed opportunity costs* of #Brexit #CatastrophUK (c.£130bn so far, rising at c.£1.2bn weekly) but our *GDP *Currency *Property Values *Stock Market *Govt Borrowing *Ongoing #Brexodus (ref: @uk_domain_names) combine to drag the UK backwards.

Preliminary observations on #TurkeyElections:
1) The opposition (#Nation bloc) making major gains, including the capital Ankara & Antalya.
2) HDP proved to be kingmakers - swayed votes to the #Nation bloc.
3) AKP losing significant votes & mayors to its #Peoples bloc partner MHP.
Preliminary prediction on #TurkeyElections: AKP cadres have seen that #Erdoğan's strategy of framing the elections around the theme "existential threat" has backfired, and will start complaining of losing votes, municipalities, & spoils to their ultranationalist partner #MHP.
Of #Turkey's 12 largest cities, the opposition is winning at least 7: #Ankara, #İzmir, #Adana, #Antalya, #Mersin, #Eskişehir, & #Diyarbakır. The largest city #Istanbul is a toss-up! #Bursa, too, is too close to call. AKP is losing Turkey's economic power houses. #TurkeyElections

I'm all for putting out the #TrumpsterFire. But lets stop pretending it's a mental health problem. Lying is not a mental health problem. It's behavioral and he's been benefiting from those lies which reinforces the behavior. Want to extinguish the fire? Stop printing his lies.
The #TrumpsterFire is a classic Narcissist who needs constant feedback. Negative is just as beneficial for him as positive. Stop giving it. The #Press needs to do what victims of Narcissistic abuse do - go #NoContact or #GrayRock.
Be indifferent to his ridiculousness. Attack policy and ignore him.
