Politicians routinely lie, hide facts, evade taxes, help their kin with lucrative contracts. Media is complicit mostly because of the negative repercussions they might have to face.

They falsify / hide records, they blame things on opponents. A 🧵 for your awareness👇 Image
If you’re holding the most powerful position on earth, don’t be like this guy. Mr. Biden needs an elderly care home or a hospital more than the Oval Office at the White House.

[Climate change & HK - China is reacting similarly to both]

1/ @GretaThunberg was named #TIMEPOY by the @TIME. She's a Swedish Schoolgirl that inspired #FridaysForFuture against climate change. She's regarded as the figure of the power of youth, and inspired many, including me.
2/ I applaud for her statement “We can’t just continue living as if there was no tomorrow, because there is a tomorrow.” There is a future where Greta and I will live long enough to see, and we are responsible to shape it into a desirable one.
3/ When world cheer & appalled for youth standing up against threats of climate change or dictatorship, we actually all play a role in the fights. No man is an island. We 're all living here today, and we will be living here tmr as well. It's not only up to the youngsters.

It's dark b/c it describes well the authoritarian assault. TIME Person of the Year 2018 The Guardians—Journalists—Khashoggi, Ressa, Capital Gazette, Kyaw Soe Oo and Wa Lone—in the War on Truth
@TIME "What irked the kingdom and marked the journalist for death was Khashoggi’s insistence on coming to that conclusion on his own, tempering it with troubling facts and trusting the public to think for itself." #TIMEPOY
@TIME "Such independence is no small thing. It marks the distinction between tyranny and democracy. And in a world where budding authoritarians have advanced by blurring the difference, there was a clarity in the spectacle of a tyrant’s fury visited upon a man armed only with a pen."
