1/13 Happy to announce that we've finished designing an all new online masterclass "THE ART OF PEACE" with my close colleague & good friend @Irenologist at the Galtung-Institut. Luckily I don't have to do it all by myself. I'll be available for deep Q&As. Below are our 12 themes:
2/13 What will participants take away?

1/12: Basic Needs (see #bhnjg) & the question of legitimacy: A Life centred approach to Politics
3/13 What will participants take away?

2/12 Time & Space as History & Geography as: Context.

“Violence,” you say, “is the last refuge of the incompetent.”
I can only agree. It’s a great saying. Whose is it?
“Isaac Asimov, I think. I’m not sure.”
The science fiction writer?
I love the guy. He said a lot of great stuff. Have spacesuit. Will travel.

“No, that was Heinlein.”
Ah. Right-wing libertarian Heinlein. I loved a lot of his stuff, too. Starship Troopers. Stranger In A Strange Land. Shame he was a right-wing libertarian.

“He was probably ok with violence, too.”
Shifting back to the topic of violence….
“Shall we?”
Why not? I agree with you.
“With me or Isaac Asimov?”
Either. Both.

Let’s talk about the economy.
You agree: “A logical next step.”
Would you mind if I’m blunt?
“Fire away.”
It’s shit.
“The economy?”
“Well, that is blunt.”

You ponder for a moment, then ask, “Is this another of your enemies?”
The economy?
An enemy to humanity and the biological world?
I hope, by the time this thread is complete, you’ll tell me.

We’re talking about the supply-and-demand, producer/consumer, deregulated/lightly-touched, invisibly-handed, limited-resource-distributing, market-based economy that prevails across much of the world.

“And it’s all entirely shit?”
Well, perhaps I need to qualify that.

‘Intelligentie’, zegt een andere leerkracht, ‘is aangeboren. Wij proberen er bij een kind uit te halen wat er in zit, maar meer dan dat lukt niet. Een Trabant kan ook niet tegen die Formule 1-wagen op.’
Mieke de Waal (9 april 1997). ‘Gewoon les’ is vaak te moeilijk. Volkskrant
Het wordt zelden zo expliciet uitgesproken; ergens voelt men wel dat er iets niet klopt.
Is dit je vast overtuiging, ja, dan zul je die in je onderwijs voortdurend bevestigd zien, niet beseffend dat je zelf en je collega’s dat onderwijs de vorm hebben gegeven die dit oplevert.
Deze leerkracht spreekt over ‘intelligentie’ alsof dat een vanzelfsprekend helder concept is. Dat is het dus niet. Het is Westers, het is een populair begrip dat stamt uit tamelijk recente psychologie waar het een technische betekenis heeft (als er al betekenis is).

I suppose we can safely say that now #TheFrighteners have been so successfully and publicly put on a certain sector their combined angst will spew a diarrhoea of spin & warp whilst trying to use THAT VERY THING to generate $£Es Some with automated AdTech software already bought.
2/ Some bought by gormless companies, by mistake, some in full knowledge or partial knowledge of what it could do. It will be interesting as time goes on to see who apparently DIDN'T CARE about the likely instigation of its more negative 'dark' capabilities looking to 'side-step'
3/ or even 'wrong-foot' Irish & EU regulation standards, & possibly law. This too is a kind of #climatechange & #ClimateAction in itself, a would be mammoth untouchable iceberg of 'dominion' & 'control' being melted out into an ocean of citizens' scrutiny & advancement for change
