The total amount of suffering per year in the natural world is beyond all decent contemplation. During the minute that it takes me to compose this sentence, thousands of animals are being eaten alive, many others are running for their lives, whimpering with fear,
others are slowly being devoured from within by rasping parasites, thousands of all kinds are dying of starvation, thirst, and disease. It must be so. If there ever is a time of plenty,
this very fact will automatically lead to an increase in the population until the natural state of starvation and misery is restored. In a universe of electrons and selfish genes, blind physical forces and genetic replication, some people are going to get hurt,

#ID2020 is very quiet having published a single video in 10 months - the #GoodHealthPass launch event (Feb 11 2021 w/ 2,452 views). Equally restrained is the Twitter account created Jan 2021, w/ a mere 384 followers - & 12 tweets. ID2020 Twitter is also on hiatus. #Strategy ImageImageImageImage
"Urgency - While standards-development processes typically move slowly, a cross-sector effort is urgently required to bring #goodhealthpass solutions to market in 2021 & to scale globally – with the same urgency applied to #vaccine development."

Note: thinking of #Assange ... thinking of the #World ... thinking of #newsmedia ... thinking of encroached #Intel and possibly #deepstate entities ... thinking of #FiveEyes and all this sort of #Jazz

It's not a happy scene is it...!

Point: I can't wrap my mind around it
2/4

I'm not the best brain here.
Yes it's true

I'm sick of #ForeverWar as it's termed

I'm sick of #Starvation and #illness esp in #yemen

I'm sick of #palastinian oppression by #Israel and the seeming #aparteid there

I'm sick of #US interference in #SouthAmerica, at least
3/4

And I've no Idea what the hell I can do.

As for the #UK , well like for example in the #Saudi and #UAE coalition they provide all that #Support for helping the #WarEffort and say the #Arms sold are within strict guidelines.

It's a heap...!!!

INSANITY MASQUERADING AS NORMALITY
"The brainwashed Covid cult followers are nothing more than attention seeking hypochondriacs, framing their cowardice as a virtue, promoting themselves as "selfless life savers" as the hero protagonist in their own theatre of life
as their imagination has been captured by a televisual pandemic narrative by design.
None of the perceived threat or danger is based in reality. These drones have such unimpassioned lives, this fear porn sense of occasion gives their life this perverse sense of purpose.

-THREADE-

As North Korea faces a new wave of starvation, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has threatened penalties for people found wasting food.
“At the beginning of this month, the Central Committee [of the Korean Workers’ Party] ordered residents to actively participate in solving our food crisis this year as part of a food-saving struggle,”
@RadioFreeAsia was told on condition of anonymity by an official from the country's North Hamgyong province. “The order emphasized that the struggle not only solves the problem of how we will eat, it is a matter of protecting the socialist system,” the source added.

Worth using google translate to watch the #propagandalive as @Erkanomia is in #Moscow to cover the #Kremlin #Military parade #HappeningNow. Some ++good #OSINT & #IMINT in his #live & candid coverage. 😎
For example, while the #Moscow #Elite typically use a black #SUV with license plate ending in 88 (sometimes 888 for family of senior officials & oligarchs who must #Drive themselves), here we see the first of the latest #cars with new #licenseplatedata.

Close-up I made from the #Finland team's #photography showing @mod_russia's Army #celebrity #swag bags for the Diamond Jubilee #celebration of the #Soviet #WWII win... ignoring 1939-1941 🙄

It is a desperate pitched #battle that #humanity is waging to stop the deadly advance of the #coronavirus.

Since its appearance in #Wuhan #China three months ago, the pandemic has infected one million people and killed 50,000, on a planet inhabited by 6 billion human beings.
Much of the world's population today is #besieged in cities, entrenched in their homes, as an extreme measure to escape the #plague & save lives.

We’re living, without a doubt, a time of tension & psychological crisis, while science, in a fight against the clock, is looking in
medicine for a solution to the challenges of the #pandemic.

The coronavirus is telling the world, in all shades, that #life is more important than #capital, because without life there is no factory.

Salvation is in human #solidarity and not in the perversity of Donald #Trump,

#Lockdown is critical for slowing the spread of #COVID19, and India has displayed firm resolve in enforcing it.

Massive labour churn; CMIE Data indicates that 120 million people have lost their jobs. We will need strong Govt action to revive the Economy.

We're already in a Global #Recession, the kind of which hasn't been seen in a century. It could get a lot worse, and we need to be prepared. #ViciousCycle 🔁 : Businesses shuttered, Labour furloughed, Expenditure cut and Demand destroyed. @MD_Nalapat

The #lockdown and media-fuelled fear have completely brought the economy to a grinding halt. At some stage, #starvation may overtake #COVID19 as the leading cause of death. States like Punjab are finding innovative ways to balance health & economics.

As of Monday (April 6, 2020), the number of deaths due to #Coronavirus in India stand at 83. But I was also thinking maybe one ought to look at non-Covid 19 deaths too. Deaths due to various circumstances under the #lockdown #covid19 #CoronavirusinIndia
1. Ravneer Singh (30) died in Kaliash Mod, Uttar Pradesh. A native of Badfra village, Morena district, this father of 3 worked as a delivery agent in Delhi. Walked 200 km before dying of exhaustion

Ok folks - Day 2 of the #ICJ #Gambia v #Myanmar provisional measures hearings going to start - important as no submissions yet by Myanmar so, first formal indication of their legal strategy. [I’ll be away on an interview for a bit so hoping we have other “live tweeters”?? :)]
Agent of Myanmar: #ASSK takes the floor as minister for foreign affairs (is this the first time an agent doesn’t have a legal background); #genocide convention “wholeheartedly” signed by Myanmar; not applied to Kosovo or exodus of Serb population from Croatia. No Specific intent
Incorrect factual situation presented to court; though suffering of innocent people. #Rakhine state background - internal armed conflict; Arakan army seeks independence; displacement & conflict, affecting civilians

Priority of request of indication of provisional measures prioritized over all other cases, balanced with opportunity for parties to be represented. 3 hours per party Tuesday & Wednesday, after which reply on Thursday for each. ICJ Procedure.
No entering into merits of case, stick to requirements for provisional measures.
