Hello, Connections! Welcome back to my weekly column #ATHCOriginal #AskATHC. Today, I want to discuss a rather controversial topic—#Women.

#UnitedShowbiz #Gender #eqyality #Education #womenempowerment #TedTalk #Inspiration #Movies
Last week, I discussed #ContentWriting, but today's topic is different. Before going further, I want to declare outright that I am not a feminist or atheist. I am just a pragmatic, who sees a glass & water as two distinct things rather than seeing it half-empty or half full.
World has moved forward. Girls have gone to space! But culture, religion, ethics, & social evils continue to haunt girls worldwide. I don't want to talk about India, you've plenty of cases where women face atrocities almost every single day here. #RuralIndia #WomenLifeFreedom

Excellent talk by Simon Sharpe @INETOxford just now, pointing out how the #climate crisis challenges economic #orthodoxy in several ways. Spoiler 🔥"Economics as a discipline has forgotten what the scientific method is" (@camjhep pointing to #heterodox ideas in defense)🧵
💡The premise: To meet our #climate goals, we need to reduce emissions globally by about 8% per year by 2030, as compared to the 1,5% p.a. achieved so far - hence the title of his book #FiveTimesFaster
1⃣ An #economy going through the rapid and far-reaching systems #transition this requires (acc. to @IPCC_CH) cannot be analysed in terms of #equilibrium, a sitation in which "nobody has any immediate reason to change their actions" according to the Oxford Dictionary of Economics. Image

1/4 "Leadership is not defined by the exercise of power but by the capacity to increase the sense of power among those led. The most essential work of the leader is to create more leaders." Mary Parker Follett (1868-1933) #leadership #work #power #internationalwomensday2023

The fundamental purpose of government in America - to protect the rights & freedoms of all citizens & prevent any one group from monopolizing #power & #wealth we supply.

Together we stand, divided we fall, & we are falling.

In "Y" we trust.
(CONSEQUENCES is everyone's meduim)
It is our collective Capabilities & resources that sustain our government, yet we are seeing a growing number of individuals who seek to manipulate with technology & control our Capabilities for their own (incompetent unimaginative) gains, at the cost of humanities.
We must work to maintain a government that truly serves "WE THE PEOPLE" & not become a kleptocracy / oligarchy where a select few highly corrupt hoard power & wealth at the expense of the masses.
