Is it trauma informed care or retraumatising care? ✍️🏽
#psychology #mentalhealth #nhs #dclinpsy #socialjustice Image
Despite multiple trainings and workshops encouraging trauma informed care, many of our systems and actions do quite the opposite.
Bouncing servive users around services, telling them they are not 'appropriate' for a treatment, excluding those with a personality disorder diagnosis or 'flagging' them on the system as 'high risk' and therefore to avoid.

What beliefs do politically intolerant people have?

Are politically tolerant people more or less concerned about political conflict than their intolerant neighbours?

We conducted survey research to address these questions.

Here's what we found.

#politics #immigration Image

We asked people how irritated they'd be if a member of their most opposed political party was dating a member of their family, their neighbor, co-worker, or local elected official.

Avg answer = tolerance score. We limited this sample to most and least tolerant.

"The United States government should provide financial
support to people in other countries who are in need."

The most intolerant group was more likely to agree than the least intolerant. Image

The debt ceiling is a relic that no longer serves a purpose in guiding our economic policies. It's time to remove it and put the needs of all Americans first. #MMT #DebtCeilingRemoval
Refusing to raise the debt ceiling will only lead to chaos and economic turmoil. As per MMT, our government can never run out of money it issues its own currency. Let's remove this outdated constraint and invest in vital public services. #RemoveDebtCeiling #MMT
Removing the debt ceiling will allow us to allocate resources based on human needs rather than being held hostage to arbitrary financial metrics or political folly. It's time to take a more pragmatic and responsible approach to investing in our future. #MMT #PublicServices

I wrote this to a #BJP supporter who wanted to know my political position. I am expanding and sharing it here.

1. BJP is as corrupt and inefficient as #Congress, but it gets a free pass because it is successfully advancing the cause of #Hindu #majoritarianism.

2. Examples are #Rammandir, #kashivishvanathtemple, #Article370, #TripleTalaq, #UCC, #CAANRC, #Cowslaughter bans, random #lynchings of Muslims, ban on #Azan in public, etc. A majority of Hindus in India support these, as they believe these will "put Muslims in their place."

3. In fact, #Corruption under the BJP is likely to be far worse than under Congress rule, because the media (which is now entirely under the control of Modi's corporate cronies like A&A) simply refuses to investigate any BJP corruption scams. Examples: #Vyapam, #Rafale...

#Antifeminismus (AF) & Sexarbeitsfeindlichkeit (SF)
In diesem Thread erkläre ich, wieso Sexarbeitsfeindlichkeit antifeministisch ist und wie sich das zeigt.
Dieser Thread ist Teil von #IntersektionaleInfosSexarbeit, die ich auf Insta mache.
"AF wendet sich - teils als organisierte Bewegung - gegen Emanzipationsbestrebungen und feministische Anliegen, wie die Beseitigung von Sexismus, die Umsetzung von Gleichberechtigung oder die Stärkung geschlechtlicher und sexueller Selbstbestimmung."
Der Begriff Antifeminimus geht zurück auf Hedwig Dohm.

Digital Spies:

In the digital age, privacy is a challenge,
Our personal data is at risk of theft,
Protecting it requires more than a talisman.

Our online lives are a digital talisman,
Hackers and cybercriminals take the plunge,
In the digital age, privacy is a challenge. Image
We are always at risk, a digital malfunction,
Leaves us open to scams and identity theft,
Protecting it requires more than a talisman.

We need to create an environment of caution,
And implement measures that give us a breath,
In the digital age, privacy is a challenge.
We must protect our data, a digital orphan,
And safeguard our personal assets from theft,
Protecting it requires more than a talisman.

1/10: Let's talk about #WhitePrivilege. It's a term used to describe the advantages and benefits that white people receive solely because of the color of their skin.
2/10: These benefits include access to better education, job opportunities, and healthcare, as well as the ability to move through life without being discriminated against based on skin color.
3/10: White privilege doesn't mean that white people don't face challenges or difficulties in life. It simply means that they won't face additional obstacles because of their skin color.

Whether you like it or not, we're in an #economic #reset & nothing can stop it

The #macro chart of the #USA #economy reveals a crucial insight everyone should pay attention to

US #GDP & M2 money supply in #USD tn

Read on...

#tradingview chart👉

1/🧵 Image
Untill 2011, money supply M2 consistently remained below 60% of #GDP

#Growth in M2 kept pace with GDP growth

Enabling low #inflation secular growth #economy

Despite popular #fintwit narrative, even GFC of 2008 did not upset M2 GDP⚖️balance

This is what GFC did...

2/🧵 Image
Average #GDP growth was 4% but M2 grew at 6%

Since 1960, this is the 1st time M2 increased faster than GDP

Still in 2011, M2 was less than historical average 60% of GDP

The story gets interesting for #investor #Traders #students #everyone

Then came the opportunity...

Concerns Regarding the Church in 🇺🇸 (🧵 1 of 12):

I’m a Christian who loves America and our freedom. I believe critical social justice is a formidable dragon facing the church in our day. I stand opposed to it. However, we must avoid some mistakes as we defend the faith! [1]
Problem 1: The false idea that the church needs help from the worldly ideologies that are actually antithetical to the gospel. This position denies the sufficiency of Scripture and the transformative power of the gospel. [2]
Problem 2: The way defeat to the dragons of our culture is somehow outside of the church through political schemes / plans. This can distract a Christian from the local church & spark a desire to make disciples who oppose the dragons rather than disciples who follow Jesus. [3]

Apple’s disgraceful Tim Cook. Hillary Vaughn: ‘Hi Mr Cook. Do you support the Chinese people’s right to protest?’ @tim_cook : Silence - Vaughn: ‘Do you have any reaction to the factory workers that were beaten and detained for protesting lockdowns?’ Tim Cook: Silence 1/4
Vaughn: ‘Do you regret restricting airdrop access that protestors used to evade surveillance from the Chinese Communist government?’ Tim Cook:Silence - Vaughn: ‘Do you think it’s problematic to do business with the Communist Party of China as they trample basic human rights?’ 2/4
Tim Cook: Silence . @Apple and @tim_cook have iPhones assembled in sweatshop like conditions and also work hand-in-hand with the Chinese government to control and repress basic human rights. Watching our faux social justice warrior avoid tough questions shows the world 3/4

1/x 🧵Let's talk about cancer patients, #immunocompromised, our UK #forgotten500k and COVID. Here's a incredible article by @EnnalsEthan at the @MailOnline and @DailyMailUK. Full post here 👉…. Here's what it reports.....
2/x The father unable to hug his teenage daughter 🫂, a retired nurse 👩‍⚕️unable to walk down the streets, the heartbreaking stories of the Britons with health conditions that mean they are still in self-isolation, shielding from COVID-19. They are the #immunocompromised ♥️🤎💜💙💚
3/x Imogen Dempsy said "my blood test show I have no protection against COVID-19". There is a drug that would provide protection to those that don't respond to the covid vaccines 😷👍. BUT...Evusheld is only available in the UK only to patients who are willing to pay for it. 😢

The importance of protesting.
A personal (late recognised) #ActuallyAutistic perspective.
I struggle to understand why we’re being so acquiescent when the government’s taking a wrecking ball to the economy, social justice, and the natural world.
We should protest more.
I was brought up not to make waves, to be obedient and law abiding.
My instinct was always for justice and truth though, and the importance of protesting soon dawned on me.
Children are subjected to various sorts of tyranny.
Protesting is one of the ways we protect ourselves.
We soon realise how futile protesting can be, in terms of overcoming injustice, and achieving something better.
But not even to try is such a desperate position to adopt.
Giving in, letting go of the hope of influencing things, accepting our powerlessness, is a kind of death.

#CommonwealthGames opening #ritual depicted worship of the #ApisBull This is extremely important because the #PriestKings are advertising their control of the masses. #AgeOfTaurus

Let me explain.
The #PriestKings bloodline date back to antiquity. This sun worshiping pharaonic cult hails from the era of the bull (Taurus) which predated Christianity by 4k+ yrs. This is the era in which God created Adam.
Below is their vassal Bull General #KlausSchwab @WEF
#KlausSchwab is the military general exercising the will of the #PriestKings and their #DavosAgenda. World dominance by means of global government infiltration and subversion under false pretenses #Plandemic #ClimateCrisis #GreatReset #SocialJustice…

#RoeVsWade should be the moment “Gender Critics” snap out of their radicalisation. Their “leaders” JKR, KS, AB, HS, HJ etc have been canoodling with the very same people who have helped make this happen 1/9 🧵🪡
They liaise & accept funds from the far right, religious orgs, the media & corrupt governments. Please reflect on their hate & who they are pals with. This is a crossroads for you all to stop & join in fighting the real dangers facing women and society 2/9
See that they want to control you & strip away your rights just as much as they want to strip away the rights of the LGBTQ+ community. 3/9

The biggest discrimination in India is #EnglishApartheid. The State funds medical colleges, engineering colleges, MBA, High Courts, in English-medium *only*, excluding 90% of the population.

If you care about #SocialJustice why not #Reservation for Tamil-medium instead?
The fact is all the "Tamil pride" of the so-called "Dravidian" parties is for lip-service only. The agenda is English and Christianization. That's the #DravidianModel (itself a colonial construct). That's what the @PWilsonDMK et al fight for.
I thought they made them English medium, at least partially.
