This hits home... Esp the non-profit VS revolution bit

"It's important to recognize that a revolution won't be launched by consensus. As organizers or volunteer leaders, you need to propose a strategic plan and invite others to join you. Don't worry about being undemocratic.
If your plan is not smart enough, not enough people will join you, and you can give up on the revolution and become a small nonprofit instead! Any group of changemakers—from a small affinity group to a large organization to a revolutionary movement with clear demands—
can benefit from adopting this rule. Create a centralized strategic plan using whatever process is right for your movement. Make sure the plan has tasks that can be repeated by volunteers that add up to progress on the plan. Then delegate chunks of work from your plan to

@SpelthorneBC how long does it usually take for your monitoring officer to reply to a residents formal complaint when it has already been upheld that a #conservative #Councillor - namely Cllr Michelle Gibson - DID breach #GDPR when she gave my address to her other half please?
@shamusdoherty @cazbie16 @Sammy_18_ @Lisa_SEND @TheRealGrumpDad @CharlieL28 @SENWorldcom @L4ASurrey STILL rumbling on🤔 @ICOnews as the holder of my own data can i freely share my communications? The DPO at #Spelthorne council upheld my GDPR complaint about Cllr Gibson! #GDPR
I have of course raised this as a formal complaint no #Councillor should feel free to misuse their power to use residents personal data to allow someone to try to intimidate them! It’s absolutely disgraceful!! #ConservativeGovernment #LocalElections2021 #LocalElections #politics

1/n Increasingly @wsj has published misleading, inaccurate articles that divide us and erode trust in credible intelligence. "Anonymous sources...smear Republicans with false claims of collusion. Three corrections later, has the media learned anything?" wsj.com/articles/the-r…

1/35 In 2017, the tax-exempt Koch Foundation and Koch Institute donated over $2 million to conservative media outlets, including $980,000 to the Daily Caller Foundation, the tax-exempt entity that underwrites Tucker Carlson’s The Daily Caller. doi.org/10.1017/978110…
2/35 Now, why would the Koch brothers be spending money on that? Probably for the same reason the far more reclusive billionaire Robert Mercer invested in Breitbart. bloomberg.com/news/features/…
3/35 With the rise of movements defending specific groups a la FDR and LBJ: labor, civil rights, consumer, environmental, and women’s movements, too much power had slipped into the hands of people who made excessive demands (fairness) of government and corporations.

1/14 I know 2020 we had big problems so some less pressing ones went unnoticed. This one must be addressed. EPA scientists found a toxic chemical damaging fetal hearts. In Feb of 2020, the White House edited the report on that chemical.

@JonahFurman So your "research" was #Triggered by the #MichaelBrown shooting

No bias there then!

Especially as there's even a #WaPo article by a #BLACK writer admitting "'#HandsUpDontShoot’ was built on a lie"!!!

And did you read the comments?!?!

washingtonpost.com/blogs/post-par… ImageImageImageImage
@JonahFurman And did you read the comments on your #WaPo "research"?!

90% of murderers in NYC & 94% in Washington DC are Black

So what proportion of Black deaths would you expect during murder arrests in those cities

13%?

Because that's the proportion of Blacks in the US?!

And 51% women! ImageImageImageImage

The news cycle is a confusing space sometimes;

Eg1.
- #ElectricCars are the future for the planet
V's
- Mining #Lithium batteries is destroying parts of Bolivia/Chile/Argentina

2.
- Decentralised #Cryptocurrencies are the future
V's
- Mining #Bitcoin = huge energy consumption
The narrative around everything nowadays is all about #Values

Corporates latch onto every opportunity

Individuals the same (just read some of the stuff on LinkedIn) 🧐

Life & business is essentially a game
#Winning is always key! (Be nice tho)

The rest is Perception=Reality
I'm a #football fan & I see a footy angle in almost everything I read! 🧐

Not sure if these connections stand up, but here's what I saw;

- #Bolivia former President #EvoMorales was ousted in 2019. Evo a #SimonBolivar anti-imperialist styled leader

1/ Will Justice Breyer retire from the Supreme Court sometime soon?

His law clerk hiring says, to quote the Magic 8 ball: "Most likely."

2/ In this lengthy post for Original Jurisdiction, I take a deep dive into the clerk hiring patterns of the past four #SCOTUS justices to retire, as well Justice Breyer's own past practice, and conclude that there's an 80-20 percent chance he'll retire soon.

#Live_Updates :- मैत्रीण जराशी चिडलेली होती. कारण आज तिची नाईट शिप होती. ते सुद्धा कोव्हिडं word ला.

रागाने मला फोन करून सोडायला चल असा आदेश देऊन माझी वाट पाहू लागली.
कसाबसा तिच्या घरापाशी गेलो.

उशीर झालेला त्यामुळे तिला गाडीवर बसण्याची नम्र विनंती करून गाडी स्टार्ट केली.
नेहमी च्या रस्त्याने जाताना पोलिसांनी अडवले पण तिचे हॉस्पिटलचे id card पाहून आम्हाला लगेच सोडले.
तिथून पुढे माझ्या निरागस अशा बालमैत्रीणीने सरकार च्या नावाने ज्या ओव्या गायल्या 🎧
त्या ऐकून माझे तर कानच तृप्त झाले.
मी फक्त hmm असा रिप्लाय करत गाडी चालवत होतो. . . .
शेवटी तिचे हॉस्पिटल आले. आणि त्या वेताळबाईला तिथे सोडून मी गाडी घराकडे वळवली.
येताना तोच मार्ग निवडला. पण वाटेत पोलिसांनी पुन्हा अडवले. 😕
मग मी पुन्हा नम्र विनंती, घरी फोन वगैरे प्रयत्न करून तिथून घरी आलो..

Imagine:

Your ancestors took a massive L and got chased out of their land

You fully feel that pain, that anguish

And instead of working hard to become a badass corporate raider and taking back everything

You whine on video game topics about fantasy worlds.

This isn't limited to indigenous people.

Romney would have garnered a lot more respect if, when called out on the depredations of Bain Capital, he had hit back with stories of Mormons getting slaughtered and chased out of places, and said that he wanted to take back everything.
Obviously money can't make the dead come out of their graves.

But that sentiment is respectable and universally relatable.

We live in a weird inversion world where those who climb up to power are doubly expected to be nice and not make waves -

That's why things don't improve.

#Thread about @netanyahu #Israel #israelelections #Netanyahu #Politics :

Leaders have recently started to refer to the parties that Benjamin Netanyahu could put out of office after twelve years as the “block of change”.

nzz.ch/international/…
In the elections they won 57 of the 120 seats in the Israeli parliament, the Knesset. Netanyahu, on the other hand, has just 52 seats with his bloc, although his Likud party won by far the most votes.
This means that both blocs missed an absolute majority.

I am about to get a party started! @HenshawKate @OgbeniDipo @DrOlufunmilayo @myaccessbank @GloWorld @DrFeruke @Twitter @jack and everyone, you're all welcome a #thread
This thread started on Thursday well technically some minutes ago, but it started the moment I was robbed of my phone circa 4:15 pm 18/03/2021. Here is the deal, I placed a call through to @GloWorld and @MTNNG to block the lines on the phone circa 6:00pm same day. 1/
I relaxed, the worst is past. "Mumu me" in @lasisielenu's voice. "You ain't see nothing yet", d robbers must have been saying in their den. Well, things fall apart rather too quickly, No thanks to @IBEDC_NG I dissipated the charge on my computer. Bank can't be reached. ish! 2/
