நல்லவேளை தோழர் @beemji #அம்பேத்கர் காலத்தில் இருந்து, சனாதன "சங்கிகந்து"வை வைத்து சினிமா புடிக்கல.

இல்லாட்டி, காந்தியுடன் இரட்டை வாக்கு உரிமையில் சமரசம் செய்த அண்ணல் அம்பேத்கரை சாடி கவுத எழுதிருப்பாப்ல.

1/
"காந்தி செத்தா சாகட்டும் விட்டுக் கொடுக்கவேண்டாம்" என்று தந்தி அனுப்பியவர் திராவிட கெழவன் பெரியார்.

ஆனால் , காந்தி செத்தால் தன் மக்கள் சூறையாடப் படுவார்கள் என்ற காரணத்தால் சமரசம் செய்தவர் அம்பேத்கர்.

Here we need to see his intent 💐💪👍

2/
அதுபோல , அம்பேத்கர் சட்டவரைவுக் குழுவில் பல சமரசங்களுடனே முடிந்தளவு சாதித்தார்.

பெரும்பான்மை ஓநாய்கள் சமூகத்தில், ஓநாய்களிடம் உறவாடாமல் சமரசம் செய்யாமல் ஆடுகளைக் காக்கவே முடியாது.

Had to do a mini research on a hot topic which plays a vital role in every elections that is 'Kuragala" / "Jailani”

I only had to search why Muslims living in that area targeted often and why it’s historically important to them. Let’s go (1/23) #lka
This thread will continue only with important points. The link of Full article attached at last, so that you can read it fully.

Also these are just my findings according to few articles and books (2/23)
Qutub Muhiyuddin Abdul Qadir Jailani, also known as Ghouse-e Azam, is one of the greatest scholars in Islamic history, was born into a pious family in the Iranian village of Naif in the south of the Caspian Sea on 18 March 1077. (3)

Early 90s. None of the other ministers in that region was doing exceptional or great work. But during discussion, they'd focus on one minister because he belonged to a minority community. It'd take someone to take stand, 'WTF, he is not doing bad, look at it', to shut others.
Point is that majority in the society decides, & it judges 'other' very harshly. If person is 'apna', then all is forgotten, even after his policies harmed us. He will be made devdoot, the narrative of his greatness would be established. 'Atalji' could've transformed Lucknow but
even if he didn't despite representing constituency, it was fine. No one dared question it or even say why he didn't do it as much, even when he wasn't PM. Anyone else who worries about you is still the 'other'. You may lose but what to do about feelings!

Four years on #newsdesks isn't long enough to be preaching, but one big learning I had at @scroll_in was this: writing the daily news is an art that needs great editorial care. Very few speed #newsdesks truly bother about this, and do a lot of harm. #Media

Here, I explain how.
Sans the "glamour" of reporting, desk writing/#editing of news is often presented to newbies as the poorer cousin of field work. Websites with sections for fast-paced news tend to think that their words don't matter, their speed and reach do.

#DigitalNews #IndianMedia #newsdesk
For instance, how many news writers care about preventing misinformation by dwelling on simple points like the difference between a "judge's observation" & a "court order"?

Or, the distinction between a proposal, Cabinet approval, Bill, Act, notification, & rules? Look at this:

Out today: Our new @TheLancet analysis of #ethics & #politics of #access to #testing #PPE & #Covid19 treatment. We must act now so to ensure that geopolitically powerful countries apply ethical standards & coordinate their procurement to access for #LMICs thelancet.com/journals/lance…
Many #African health systems lack capacity to respond if #COVID19 outbreaks get out of control. So #testing & #tracing are particularly vital.

Unfortunately, testing supplies are increasingly scarce, as #NorthAmerican & #European countries snap up everything on the market.
This mirrors failures in the #AIDS response—when testing & treatment came to #Africa years after it arrived in #US & #Europe, and long after the #pandemic had taken hold. This resulted in tens of millions of unnecessary deaths. @chidodc @DrWilfredoM @RenzoGuinto @paimadhu

Excited to share latest article, published with @SpringerNature in @PalCommsOA, on why we might want to pay closer attention to experts’ learning when advising #policymakers. Given the timing: a short(ish) thread on its relevance for #COVID19, below /1👉🏻 rdcu.be/b3Rs9
In the aftermath of the #coronavirus pandemic, we’ll need an evaluation of ‘what happened’ and ‘what went wrong’. For the whole picture, we can’t just rely on the loudest or the most visible voices. We need to turn to those scientific advisers whose stories go largely untold. /2
Through their engagements with policymakers/politicians, experts learn the delicate balancing act of #scienceadvice. They learn what is and isn’t appropriate behaviour, what is and isn’t politically acceptable, and to draw the line where #science ‘ends’ and #politics ‘begins’. /3

@realDonaldTrump is the biggest danger this country has faced in a LONG time. He keeps people ignorant. The two strongest #TrumpSupporters at my job kept repeating his narrative: "this is a #Democrat hoax, this is #FakeNews and this is like the flu" When they saw #COVID19 with
their own two eyes? One ran to Human Resources and retired in a day and the other is terrified to go near ANY patient without a mask or full gear. When they asked for volunteers to work the entire #CoronavirusUSA Pandemic guess who did NOT volunteer? Here I sit, a volunteer again
having served my country before as a soldier. I hold hands as people die, give them comfort regardless of #politics ,and watched THREE walk away former #TrumpSupporters. PLEASE dont wait until death is at ur door to awaken #TrumpVirusCoverup #MondayMotivation #TruthFreedomHealth

Gave this story to Michelle Caldwell - who was doing good work at ⁦@bradleyzeve⁩’s ⁦@mcweekly⁩ - on a silver platter.

If the name #Caldwell sounds familiar it’s because she is married to MCSO “Narc” #MarkCaldwell - who ⁦@Calkins_Royalmontereycountyweekly.com/news/local_new…

wrote about recently for @VoicesofBay.

Caldwell, the Sheriff’s department commander has been involved in a number of sketchy issues in my community - and is good friends with fired commander Mike Richards - who ran for sheriff in 2014 - and lost

Pardoned and “Reformed” Concert Promoter Dave Drew has an especially close relationship with Mike Richards - and defends Richards every chance he gets.

@AdeleFrese @SalinasPD - correct?

Very #JoeExotic

Apparently this behavior is acceptable to our “community leaders”

What would your #USGovernment do in a pandemic for #NationalSecurity?

Take out a building?
Take out prison?
Take out a hospital?
Take out a shelter?
Take out a city?
Take out a state?

What would the oligarchs & kleptocrats do to out-#survive US?
On 9/11, scrambled jets were given orders to shoot down full passenger jets as necessary - don't think these discussions aren't taking place in earnest. #StephenMiller & #JaredKushner are in on the talks, so you know they're about #homicide and #genocide. They're real life Nazis.
"Jared Kushner, the president's son-in-law and top adviser, and Stephen Miller, a senior policy adviser, took the lead in writing President Donald Trump's error-riddled address to the nation about the coronavirus outbreak."

Here was the thing with Dennis Donohue as Mayor of Salinas. He was a terrible Mayor. Even Joe Gunter, the current Mayor of #Salinas, was running around investigating Donohue for some crime or walking on crime scenes without permission.

He played fast and loose with the rules
2/

He sent Kelly McMillin a “police officer” over to the #Salinas #Californian (it was a daily paper at the time) to threaten them with zero #transparency if they didn’t stop writing mean articles about Dennis, but more importantly, his buddy Bruce”Troll” Taylor.
3/

Donohue made space for Bankers Casino, a future card room owned by a guy he was on the planning commish with - in a bizarre property transaction - with some deal made over dirt lots on Division St (probation was all abuzz about this, because ...)

He brought #Salinas

In case #teamrhetoric #politics #AcademicTwitter is looking for a new assignment for their political communication/campaign students: have them read this & find recent examples of each strategy: zocalopublicsquare.org/2020/03/15/why…
Or, pick one of the strategies and argue for why it is/not effective.

Or, explain why the rhetorical presidency model or the post-rhetorical presidency campaign model was better for democracy.
It's a short read & explains things for non-experts. It should be good at prompting discussion/engagement.

Guy at BSNL office was worried over his personal issues, started talking to me on his own, about lay offs, privatization, future of LIC, a lot. Said govt unable to control but later said, 'look at Pakistan, they've to mortgage all, even roads, we're much better' #Media #Narrative
He was explaining to me that in India, we're yet to sell railways but in Pakistan even 'roads sold' to keep the country's economy afloat'. Must have picked up from channels. So this comparison always makes people content, 'unse behtar hain', without stepping foot out of India.
This is the super narrative--comparison has to be with Pakistan, look at how others have sunk & we are still not doing badly. Even within locality it happens, people are sometimes more jealous about neighbour's accomplishment. So playing on these emotions. Truly amazing.

🗣️Our new book is out today: “#CasaPound Italia: contemporary #Extreme #Right #Politics” co-written by @CaterinaFroio @SciencesPo_CEE Matteo Albanese, Giorgia Bulli and myself @CrexUiO, for @routledgebooks @FFRAFAction (thread 1/15)
shorturl.at/nSW19
@CaterinaFroio @SciencesPo_CEE @CrexUiO @routledgebooks @FFRAFAction The volume presents a theory of contemporary right-wing #extremism that helps understand how a fringe group like CPI has been successful in placing its ideas in public debates in #Italy. shorturl.at/nSW19 (2/15)
@CaterinaFroio @SciencesPo_CEE @CrexUiO @routledgebooks @FFRAFAction We argue that this type of success has to do with #hybridization, which we define as the blurring of five main aspects of ‘#extreme right politics’: #ideology, internal structure, #activism, #mobilization and #communication.

Hey folks: I wanted to share something @apmresearch just released that I’m very proud of:

Our VOTER PROFILE TOOLS, as part of our broader #RepresentingUS project. (Read: A wealth of data to understand the US electorate in interactive @tableau tools.)
apmresearchlab.org/representingus…
@APMResearch @tableau 2/
We at @apmresearch released these tools on #IowaCaucus day, but expect that they will be valuable up until the #2020election & beyond—to understand how eligible voters differ—often dramatically—from state to state & in each congressional district.

apmresearchlab.org/representingus…
@APMResearch @tableau 3/
Already I’ve read numerous #media stories about the #IowaCaucuses & #NewHampshirePrimary saying those states don’t reflect the nation’s #demographics, but the #journalists didn’t include any data as to HOW they differed and to what degree.

The Council for National Policy #CNP, "The Secret Society"

"the heart of a great conservative movement that helped to make America strong and prosperous in the 20th century – now helping to ensure she remains free and secure in the 21st century,"
Some CNP members - Mike Pence comes quickly to mind - in the context of bolstering their conservative credentials, have proudly revealed their CNP membership, even though CNP's policy is to keep membership a secret. Here is it's 2014 Membership, the latest splcenter.org/sites/default/…
#CNP's tentacles include well-connected activists who advocate for the imposition of fundamentalist Christian ideology in public life and have succeeded in forcing their agenda in republican administrations. A list of organizations working with CNP web.archive.org/web/2012020417…

In India, politicians are not to serve us or society. They are to rule. As people identify with a politician, the more thuggish he is, the more powerful he is seen as & the followers too feel powerful with him. 'Apna neta aisa hai'. Psychological effect. It has several benefits..
for the leader. As his image is that of a ruffian, short-tempered man or a don, not everybody would approach him to get works done or for overall betterment of constituency, improvement in services. No expectations. 'Raw power', the feel of it, is enough. That he represents us..
'We elected him...our MP or MLA is a strongman..' The strength gets into followers. Symbiotic relationship of a unique kind. Further, if he belongs to your own community, caste, naturally you feel more powerful as well as content & a feeling of pride. #Politics #India

The realm of #politics is to coordinate solutions beyond what decentralized actors and organizations can themselves achieve. This is done through the power of #thestate (coercion). Thus, the scope and use for politics as a means is strictly limited to where it is the better
solution for society and its constituents. This means the boundary of the proper use of politics and the state is identified by what can (and will) be coordinated through decentralized means. In other words, the boundary of politics is composed by our understanding for the
mechanisms behind spontaneous orders and their emergence. Chief among them is the price mechanism and economic calculation. In other words, the 'other side' of politics, which suggests where and to what extent the powers of the state should and can be used, is #economics and,

My latest essay on #recommunlisation and the status quo of this world was uploaded now. #Communism #Utopia #Anarchism #Capitalism #Politics #Philosophy #Liberty #Blog

Further information below this tweet:

This text is mostly dedicated to how I think on a perfect Utopia for everyone, without any exceptions. As for daily politics, a different approach has to be chosen, of course. But for those who wonder how I think on a larger scale, or who wonder how we might solve our everyday...
struggles and avoidable aches, might be interested in reading this text and leave some critique, general feedback, or even approval, just in case.

Word on the street is the #FederalReserve is having unheard of overnight lending activities meant to curb the rise of short term rates which are likely skyrocketing due to some big companies cash concerns. Hmm, let’s get some nice Fed conspiracies rolling wsj.com/amp/articles/n…
The #FederalReserve is a system of centralized banks that fund the #UnitedStates loans from their own “reserves” w/ US citizen land & labor used as collateral. Most of these banks are held secret and difficult to trace back to to the originating bank. globalresearch.ca/the-federal-re…
A quick look at history and you can see the banking system is a large network of oil barons like the #Rockefellers, #RoyalCrown and various vassal agents of #European banking families like the #Rothschilds. These banks are used to control the economy completely protected.
