"Author Adam Pottle is fighting his publisher to change an illustration accused of conveying a stereotype of Asians in his new children's book."
Oh yes ? Allow me to explain then...
(1) Japan is divided like any other country but the fact remains that I personally know a Japanese woman who wears the kimono - and yes they are those who maintain ancestral rituals and traditions
(eg tea ceremony, Judo, Kyudo that I myself have practiced and I know for a fact that one does not need to be from Japan to wear a Kimono but to follow and live the values of the dojo, etc.).
(2) Let reassure the author: I will not buy his book. However, it will not be to follow his displaced request. He should try to read **Hélène Romano** (PhD law, PhD psychopathology) who has written books for children as well as for adults.
There he would learn a few interesting facts for his own development and that of the children. The remark also applies to @RadioCanadaInfo and other mainstream media.
(3) Radio-Canada , Le Monde, NYT et al. are of the same ideological garbage: Radical Centrism. Those are now legion.

For readers here who believe themselves to be educated, a little reminder:
- Centrists / Liberal Left / Democrats = Globalism **neoliberal** (apex = "Radical Centrism"). Do not be surprised to see a certain Arruda, a certain Trudeau or people from WHO are displaying with the Goalkeepers pin.
- Liberal Right / Republicans / Sovereignists (Left & Right) = Nationalism ** neoliberal ** = "Defend national sovereignty while losing sight of social concern, without at the same time defending popular sovereignty, is to deprive Sovereignty not only of...
... its political content but also of the social forces which underlie it, give it its strength and without which it is only a very fragile construction"
The problem is therefore neither globalism nor nationalism, both of which could even coexist, but rather ** neoliberalism ** ...
... which exacerbates tendencies (far-right, far-left, radical centrism) and **undermines democracies**. To say it's a cancer is no understatement. sens-public.org/articles/1456/
In the end, if the Kimono is threatened, it is not by the biased narrative of stereotypes but by the consumerist tendency of mass cultural appropriation to the detriment of human values.
Censorship is afraid that a child might wonder: "But why do I have to wear a kimono when everyone has the right to be a superhero?".
- cbc.ca/radio/thecurre…
To that, I answer that today more than ever, cultural traditions are needed so as not to give in to the sirens calls of ademocratic globalization (without democracy) of which superheroes are rightly so the perfect **stereotype**.
I wish you to find genuine populist parties, whether on the right or on the left. Otherwise good luck and, while waiting for its very imminent death, long live freedom of expression.

How to be a globalist neoliberal MD....

We can go a long way w/ such warrantless statements.

"If you are overdosing, it is your fault drug addict! Why should I help you and risk my life for you?"
"If you have cirrhosis , it is your fault drunk addict! Why should I help you and risk my life for you?"

"If you have HIV/AIDS, it is your fault sex/drug addict! Why should I help you and risk my life for you?"
"If you have a weapon wound, it is your fault gangsterism/extremist addict! Why should I help you and risk my life for you?"

"If you are drowning, it is your fault water sport addict! Why should I help you and risk my life for you?"

@peakpilot @WENDLINGJeanMi1 The problem is that scientific activity is not equipped to answer generalities such as "do masks work?" It can only say things like "is it leaking in this context", "does it stop a particle in this context", etc.
@peakpilot @WENDLINGJeanMi1 Also, studies were mostly about chirurgical masks but now that there is so many type of masks it makes things even more complicated.
@peakpilot @WENDLINGJeanMi1 In a controlled environment, masks and face shields prove to offer some protection, but I agree that in an unpredictable / chaotic environment, masks provides no benefit - at the very least I am waiting to see well made studies on that.

COVID19 analysis by @WENDLINGJeanMi1
- Air (aerosols): Extremely rare
- Surfaces (macro-droplets): Often!
- Faeces and waste water: Epidemic tracking!

(1) Wash your hands a lot!

(2) There is also a need to change the narrative from **masks for all** to **face shield for specific groups** (healthcare workers, elderly, fragile people, food shops workers, etc.)

@NickHudsonCT D. Nabarro is saying he will do lockdowns again if needed ("flatten the curve") and that he hopes not to encourage it again. He is an evangelist of the Global Goals org aka "no return to the old normal, we are now in the new normal".

He is a true believer.
@NickHudsonCT He belongs to the infamous GoalKeeper cartel, as all politician in Occident do as far as I can see.

Truly despicable.

@NickHudsonCT What will it be ?

- Freedom to be healthy (fact)
- Inhibition to be healthy (fallacy)

Answer can be found in the seminal work of Henri Laborit

@NatCitizens I will not until you give some serious explanations on the meaning of "Let's learn to live with the virus" in the video.

@OnCall4ON @Milhouse_Van_Ho @peakpilot
@NatCitizens @OnCall4ON @Milhouse_Van_Ho @peakpilot If it means this, I am against it.
"All the vaccine scenarios will require that the mitigation measures employed worldwide continue for a few years at least. [...]
@NatCitizens @OnCall4ON @Milhouse_Van_Ho @peakpilot Often it is difficult to offer solutions, but it is straightforward in this case: interventions that have been in use since early in the pandemic, most crucially physical distancing and hand hygiene, must continue indefinitely. [...]
