Facebook founding president sounds alarm - BBC News
do you know your neighbour? Chomsky manufactured consent. perfect personal propagandist. outrage machine. time waster. feedback loop for No Representation feelings. “I use these platforms, I just don’t let these platforms use me,” // Adam Curtis - FB can not present you with a future, a proposal. bc it is insular isolated environment (perfect personal propagandist) even if you are 'connected with the world.' It's a sham. Its millions of bubbles. not "A" world connected. Occypy was better than facebook. But Occupy hat not even a handful of leaders. political social economic movements need leaders to refer to, dialogue, interview, sign policy papers, etc etc. mass democracy still needs a leader and leadershuip and management and people skills. see Momentum.

FA racism allegations inquiry: Request 'bordering on blackmail' - Eniola Aluko - BBC Sport
Footballer Eni Aluko tells the parliamentary inquiry over racism that FA chief executive Martin Glenn asked her to make a written statement that "the FA was not institutionally racist" and in return "the FA would consider" releasing the second portion of an agreed financial settlement.

Aluko says the offer was "bordering on blackmail". Glenn denies asking her to make the statement. &! http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p05k9vd1

Gesellschaft ǀ Orlando, Symbol des Scheiterns — der Freitag
Das Scheitern der „Gesellschaft“. Wir sollten uns selbst fragen, wie es möglich ist, dass es in modernen, offenen Gesellschaften, für manche Menschen nötig ist, Halt in extremistischen, menschenverachtenden Ideologien zu suchen. Ich beziehe das nicht nur auf „Islamisten“ oder religiöse Fanatiker. Wir müssen uns doch auch fragen, wie es sein kann, dass selbst Menschen, die in unserem Land geboren wurden, dazu kommen, diese Gesellschaft rigoros abzulehnen. Wie kommen diese Menschen dazu, dieses Land, unsere Verfassung, die ihnen garantiert, ihre Meinung sagen zu können und frei zu leben, zu bekämpfen? //&!

Zusammenleben: Die Welt wird nicht untergehen - Kolumne - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Blöde, Ungebildete und Gierige gab es zu jeder Zeit, es liegt nicht nur am Versäumnis der Regierungen, sondern man kann festhalten, dass es einfach zivilisierte und weniger zivilisierte Menschen gibt, egal welchen Geburtshintergrund sie haben. Es gibt idiotische Muslime, biodeutsche Nazis, biofinnische Serienmörder, christliche Umweltzerstörer, es ist nur die Frage, wie regelt man das Zusammenleben einer überwiegend freundlichen Mehrheit mit einer gewaltbereiten oder raffgierigen, unverantwortlichen Minderheit. [...] wer an Traumbildern festhält, kommt darin um. Wir werden unser verschontes, privilegiertes Leben nicht wiederbekommen, [...] das Problem ist der Mensch, der in allen Facetten des Irrsinns hergestellt wird. //&!

Flüchtlingskrise: Jetzt können wir alles in Frage stellen - Kolumne - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Die Vorschläge waren konkret, praktisch, inspirierend, überraschend, manche waren gewagt, manche waren verstiegen. Und aus allen Mails sprach eine gemeinsame Sehnsucht: Dass die Medien sich diesem konstruktiven Ansatz öffnen und ihren Auftrag auch so verstehen, dass es nicht immer nur um Probleme geht, sondern auch um Lösungen. [...] Der kamerunische Philosoph Achille Mbembe, der am Montag mit dem Geschwister-Scholl-Preis ausgezeichnet wird, hat einmal davon gesprochen, was man von den Menschen, die in Armut leben, lernen kann - die Bastionen des Wohlstands zu verteidigen, ist oft unmenschlicher, als mit den Mitteln, die man hat, nach Lösungen zu suchen.

The Trans Movement Needs a New, Science Based Strategy | Brynn Tannehill
Tuesday's defeat of HERO highlights several conclusions that the LGBT movement needs to take to heart for the next decade or so. Foremost is that we will not win transgender issues directly at the ballot box, or in the gerrymandered republican legislatures which dominate the political landscape. [...] When opponents frame legal protections for transgender people as a choice between a group strangers (who are suspected of being perverts anyway) and the safety your wives and daughters, transgender people will lose every time. So far, anti-LGBT forces have been far more successful at pushing their narrative. I don't foresee this changing anytime soon. [...] Convincing large numbers of people driven by fear and religious beliefs simply will not happen. &! bit.ly/1MgrDKK &! https://redd.it/3rxwmd &! slate.me/1Op7eck

Every Day I Want To Quit Social Media
[ no more time to reflect and think for yourself ... we are all and feel Alon Together. ] I am drowning in a sea of anxiety created by Twitter and Facebook. [...] We all want to be recognized as clever or witty. [ your best side, public ] [...] I ended up on social media for a reason, and though the reason escapes me during moments of sheer panic and anxiety, I take part, no matter what — the pursuit of relevancy, or, in the strictest sense of the term, validation, is an imperative that exists as a key part of humankind’s quest for meaning. Self-definition has become intertwined with social media. We are all here for each other. I wake up staring at my phone. I fall asleep to the glow of the very same screen.

Rezension ǀ Was wäre ein selbstbestimmtes Leben? — der Freitag
Rezension Michael Pauens und Harald Welzers Schrift "Autonomie" verteidigt den Mut, sich seiner eigenen Autonomie zu bedienen [...] Zwischen derartigen Gewissensfragen erstreckt sich der Handlungsspielraum, um den es Michael Pauen und Harald Welzer in ihrem Buch "Autonomie. Eine Verteidigung" geht: Selbstbestimmung trotz Gefahr für das eigene Leben und das der Liebsten, innere Unabhängigkeit und Mündigkeit trotz der Gefahr der sozialen Isolation. Diese Erörterung ist so notwendig wie schwierig. Denn so notwendig und wertvoll Autonomie auf der einen Seite ist, so schwierig zu begreifen ist sie auf der anderen. Zwei Beispiele unter vielen: Handelt ein Veganer autonom? [...] Autonomie, so die Prämisse von und Pauen/Welzer, sei erstens eine Errungenschaft und zweites als solche stets wiederherzustellen.

BBC One - Panorama, Tough Justice in Britain - Texas Style
As the UK's imprisonment rate remains the highest in western Europe, Panorama joins Michael Gove - the man in charge of British prisons - on a fact-finding mission in Texas. 'Hang 'em high' Texas is not the first place you might look for lessons in criminal justice - they execute more people and lock up more offenders than anywhere else in America. But now this conservative state is the unlikely centre of a rehabilitation-led revolution in prison reform that's sweeping through the US. Crime is down, prisoner numbers have fallen and, on top of this, they have cut costs. Are there valuable lessons to be learned here, and are UK politicians really ready to dole out some Texan justice?

Legal highs are set to be outlawed by the British government in response to a growing number of news reports about students overdosing on the synthetic drugs after using them recreationally. On the eve of the ban, VICE travelled to Manchester to meet some more vulnerable users who have become addicted to these over-the-counter substances and discovered that solving the problem won't be as simple as making legal highs illegal.

Lagarde beharrt auf Schuldenentlastung für Griechenland - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Der Internationale Währungsfonds ist in Athen verhasst. Ausgerechnet IWF-Chefin Lagarde unterstützt Griechenlands Premier Tsipras nun erneut bei seiner Forderung nach einer erheblichen Schuldenerleichterung. [...] "Wir sehen im Moment eine Situation, in der wir die Schuldenlast als nicht tragfähig beurteilen", sagte IWF-Chefin Christine Lagarde. "Es muss eine signifikante Schulden-Restrukturierung geben", forderte Lagarde mit Blick auf die Schuldenquote Griechenlands von rund 170 Prozent der Wirtschaftsleistung. Die Quote könne sogar in Richtung 200 Prozent steigen: Diese Einschätzung setze sich mehr und mehr durch, sagte Lagarde. // Compromise must be found, a pause for debt repaymen (EFSF, ESM, ECB) for ~15-20 years. With a slow start in repayments without interest coupon there after, coupled with economic / budget feasibility assessment of repayments in view of long-term sustainability. // &! bit.ly/1JUGCbF - IMF will refuse to join Greek bailout until debt relief demands are met

Rassismus in Australien: Beleidigungen gegen Aborigine Adam Goodes - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Und Goodes hat sich öffentlichkeitswirksam gegen Rassismus gewehrt. Doch damit machte er aus Sicht seiner Gegner alles noch schlimmer: Im Mai 2013 stoppte er das laufende Spiel und machte die Ordner auf ein Mädchen in der ersten Zuschauerreihe aufmerksam, das ihn gerade als Affen beschimpft hatte. Vor Zehntausenden Zuschauern wurde die 13-Jährige aus dem Stadion geführt. "Rassismus hat ein Gesicht", sagte Goodes nach dem Spiel in Melbourne: "Das Gesicht eines 13-jährigen Mädchens." Anschließend war die Wut groß. Aber der Zorn richtete sich nicht gegen die Jugendliche, sondern gegen Goodes, der es gewagt hatte, einen Teenager bloßzustellen. Mit diesem Vorfall begannen die Buhrufe gegen den Spieler mit der Nummer 37. Das Mädchen konnte unwidersprochen behaupten, es habe nicht gewusst, dass Affe eine rassistische Beleidigung sei. // &! bbc.in/1T7iqHX

About Your Skin: What Nina Jablonski thinks you should know about your body’s biggest organ.
[ race is not biological, race and ethnicity is a social construct. baby/kids are not born innate racists. homophobes. transphobic. xenophobic nor antisemitic. ] [...] To most humans, races are creations of the mind that have social reality and that often have physical traits associated with them. So race is strictly a social construction? Yes, but that doesn’t make it any less real. When people identify as belonging to a certain group, the biological or philosophical status of the race doesn’t really matter. So race is a very durable construct and people have strong racial identities that are often tied up with physical appearance, but also include a lot of cultural aspects. [...] It’s very important that you create slaves as an inferior class as people. You dehumanize them by saying they are inherently immoral, inherently incapable of developing true human qualities. They are sub-human. This makes the whole slave trade much more palatable.

Talk-Show: Maischberger-Talk empört Schwule und Lesben - DIE WELT
Kampf gegen Diskriminierung Die Bildungsplanreform zum Jahr 2015 enthält die Maßgabe, fächerübergreifend die "Akzeptanz sexueller Vielfalt" zu berücksichtigen. Damit könne der anhaltenden Schwulenfeindlichkeit entgegengewirkt werden, sagte die sozialpolitische Sprecherin der Grünen-Fraktion in Baden-Württemberg, Brigitte Lösch, den "Stuttgarter Nachrichten". "Homophobe Einstellungen unter Jugendlichen sind nach wie vor stark ausgeprägt", meinte sie. Derzeit hänge es ausschließlich vom Engagement der Lehrer ab, ob schwule und lesbische Lebensweisen im Unterricht thematisiert würden, sagte Lösch unter Verweis auf eine Regierungsantwort zu einer entsprechenden parlamentarischen Anfrage der Grünen. Das Thema müsse daher sowohl im Bildungsplan als auch bei der Aus- und Weiterbildung der Lehrkräfte verbindlich vorgegeben werden. // &! http://www.welt.de/kultur/article124823003/Warum-Homophobie-unchristlich-ist.html

Ressentiments gegenüber Fremden und den Schwierigkeiten demokratischer Willensbildung, die auch sozialisationsbedingt sind, sieht er als Ursachen des Zuspruchs für Pegida.

Universitäten: Avanessian bemängelt akademische Rückschrittlichkeit - SPIEGEL ONLINE
wie ein Virus der Belanglosigkeit. Ich meine eine Ideenarmut und Schwerfälligkeit, die gewollt ist und geradezu karrierefördernd. [...] Die Universität erscheint hier als ein groß angelegter und staatlich geförderter Verhinderungsbetrieb, der am eigenen Mythos des "kritischen Denkens" verzweifelt festhält - aus Existenzangst und ohne zu sehen, dass das "kritische Denken" längst selbst zu einer Ware geworden ist, die mit Drittmittelanträgen gegen echtes Geld getauscht wird. [...] die Logik der Universität wäre demnach die Logik auch einer Gesellschaft, [...] Es darf gar nicht existieren, das Neue, weil sonst das Alte seine Legitimität verlieren würde.

Gay couple allegedly asked 'to stop what you are doing' in London restaurant - UK - News - The Independent
Although the restaurant has now apologised for any "issues" arising from the incident, and said it  would investigate what happened, the incident comes amid a new report that shows rising levels of hate crimes across the capital. According to the Metropolitan Police crimes targeting the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, and transgender) community have risen to as many as 100 cases a month, with a monthly increase of 21.5 per cent since March 2014.

Occupy Central’s polite protesters: The Hong Kong demonstrators are disciplined, organized, and prepared.
The Occupy Central demonstrators are courteous. That’s actually what makes them so dangerous. [...] These aren’t just idealists; these are savvy political operators who understand successful nonviolent resistance. [...] The answers to these questions can be found in the appropriately titled “Manual of Disobedience.” Published online several days before the Occupy Central campaign was set to begin, the document (written in Chinese and English) is part how-to guide and part philosophical mission statement. It details the movement’s tactics, the rules for nonviolent protest, the legal codes that may be violated, and the exact procedure to follow should someone be arrested. It also implores protesters to “avoid physical confrontation, but also to avoid developing hatred in [their] heart,” and explains that the protests must be a model of the values that they are striving to see in their society, namely “equality, tolerance, love, and care.” [...] Book - Blueprint for Revolution.

Video-Kommentar zur AfD: Partei der Protestalgie - http://www.spiegel.de/video/afd-bei-wahlen-in-thueringen-und-brandenburg-kommentar-nikolaus-blome-video-1521747.html +++ Protest + Nostalgie + Ostalgie = Protestalgie! +++ Landtagswahlen im Osten: Frust hat entschieden - Die AfD hat ihren Triumph in Thüringen und Brandenburg den Enttäuschten zu verdanken. Immerhin sind sie überhaupt noch wählen gegangen - das ist keine Selbstverständlichkeit mehr. Aus Befragungen der Meinungsforscher von Infratest dimap für die ARD wird der große Frust deutlich, so sagt in beiden Bundesländern eine Mehrheit der Nichtwähler, Politiker verfolgten ohnehin nur ihre eigenen Interessen.

Women In Tech: It’s Not Just A Pipeline Problem | TechCrunch
Between ages 25 and 30, 41% of the young talent with credentials in those subject matters are female … [but] 52% of this talent drops out … The most important antigen is the machismo that continues to permeate these work environments … 63% of women in science, engineering and technology have experienced sexual harassment. [...] If you create an environment wherein a whole class of entrepreneurs and employees goes unnoticed by deeply flawed industry-wide “pattern recognition” heuristics, and/or one where they have to be perpetually on their guard, and must pretend not to notice all the myriad microaggressions that make them feel vulnerable and uncomfortable and out-of-place then many of those entrepreneurs and employees will decide, rightly, that the tech industry is not worth the hassle and grief. + http://craigconnects.org/2014/08/why-men-must-lean-in-to-support-womens-leadership-2.html
