“Our current economies are running a Ponzi scheme with our planet,” [...] "The situation is reversible. Research by the group indicates political action is far more effective than individual choices." [...] Separate scientific studies over the past year has revealed a third of land is now acutely degraded, while tropical forests have become a source rather than a sink of carbon. Scientists have also raised the alarm about increasingly erratic weather, particularly in the Arctic, and worrying declines in populations of bees and other insect pollinators, which are essential for crops. &!

Suizid als politischer Akt - "Ich gehöre mir und nicht dem Staat"
In der Philosophie habe beispielsweise Michel Foucault den Freitod als aktive Technik der Selbstgestaltung mit machtkritischem Impetus verstanden. Inspirieren lassen habe er sich dabei von der Antike. Schon damals habe etwa Seneca den Suizid als Akt der Selbstaneignung aufgefasst. Der zugrundeliegende Gedanke sei gewesen: "Ich gehöre mir und nicht dem Staat, nicht dem Kaiser, nicht den Verwandten und Ahnen und dass ich mir gehöre, heißt auch, dass ich mich dafür entscheiden kann, aus dem Leben zu scheiden", so Macho.

Investigatory Powers Bill: May defends surveillance powers - BBC News
Mrs May has said Britain's spies must continue to be allowed to hack into foreign computer networks, under so-called "bulk equipment interference warrants", as this was "a key operational requirement for GCHQ".
She told MPs that bulk powers had played a significant role in every major counter-terrorism investigation over the past decade, including seven terror plots foiled in the past 18 months, and in responding to the bulk of cyber attacks against UK interests.

Überwachung in Großbritannien: Neues Gesetz vorgestellt - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Die Werbekampagne hat sich gelohnt. Am heutigen Mittwoch veröffentlichte Innenministerin Theresa May einen Gesetzentwurf (hier als PDF), der britischen Geheimdiensten noch mehr Macht verspricht. Die Spione können, sobald die sogenannte Investigatory Powers Bill vom Parlament verabschiedet wird, ganz legal das tun, was sie bislang ohne solide rechtliche Grundlage machten. Gleichzeitig sagte Innenministerin May, sie wolle die Aufsicht über die Geheimdienste stärken. [...] Theresa May betonte im Parlament, dass es nicht darum gehe, den gesamten Browserverlauf zu speichern, sondern nachvollziehen zu können, mit wem Verdächtige kommunizieren.

Celebrating the hidden history of disabled people’s fight for civil rights | Frances Ryan | Society | The Guardian
Burgess says the exhibition aims to tell the story of a campaign movement that’s been largely ignored up to now. “If it is covered, it’s often not about people demanding change, it’s about ‘welfare’ or rights being ‘given out’,” he says. The exhibition also celebrates the Disability Discrimination Act, which this week marks its 20th anniversary, and the activists who made the law a reality. With the passing of the landmark DDA, for the first time in Britain the law provided disabled citizens with access to the workplace (employers were required to make “reasonable adjustments” to work and premises) and, through later amendments, to education and transport.

individualism tends to capitalism (each their own coloured widget) vs individuality of the individual. don't mistake the one for the other and you can't achieve the same happiness and well-being with just individualism because it is also based on constant consumption. // what people leave out of socialism and the pundits decry over it. is democracy. democratic socialism. // Plutocracy is undercutting its ability to survive! Problem, the system will take us down with it. // We got ecological catastrophe on our doorstep. Nuclear catastrophe. And Capitalisms catastrophe. //&!

Why the phrase ‘first world problem’ is condescending to everyone | Books | The Guardian
first world problem [...] To pre-emptively concede that my problem is just a first world one is to ostentatiously check my privilege before anyone else tells me to do so. At the same time, I remind myself and everyone in earshot that we are indeed living in the “first world”. So it is also a humblebrag. [...] For a start, it patronises those outside the “first world” by implying that hunger, disease and war are not only prevalent among the global poor but in some way the sole conditions of their lives. It implicitly characterises the less fortunate majority of the world’s population as saintly idiots who would never dream of complaining about anything more trivial. In the guise of right-on sympathy, we condescendingly picture others as living lives of homogeneous horror while rhetorically rendering them invisible as people, denying the individuality of everyone’s various joys and sorrows. [...] As is well known, we all compare ourselves to others close by, and feel bad if we are ...

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.

DJ in Berlin: Sexismus und Feminismus in der Technoszene - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Kate will ein Zeichen setzen gegen die Diskriminierung von weiblichen DJs. Sie bittet ihren Freund, ihr die Haare abzuschneiden. So kurz es geht. Mit einem Rasierer trimmt er Kates Haare auf wenige Millimeter. Danach sieht sie so aus wie er, nur kleiner. Sie schließt sich Female Pressure an, einem internationalen Frauennetzwerk für digitale Musik und Kunst, in dem sich 1300 Musikerinnen und DJs engagieren. Es prangert an, dass bei Festivals, in Klubs und Labels nur jede zehnte Künstler eine Frau ist. Kate spricht mit anderen Frauen aus der elektronischen Musikszene. Sie liest Bücher über Sexismus, Feminismus, schaut Filme. Und nennt sich selbst nicht mehr DJane: "Warum sollte Geschlecht beim Namen eine Rolle spielen?", sagt sie; DJ ist DJ, alle machen das Gleiche. + http://www.femalepressure.net/fempress.html

29C3 in Hamburg: Jacob Appelbaum spricht auf dem CCC-Kongress - SPIEGEL ONLINE
"Not my Department", dafür bin ich nicht zuständig, das Motto der Veranstaltung. Das Zitat wird in einem Lied dem Raketenbauer Wernher von Braun zugeschrieben. Zwar ist er dafür zuständig, dass die Raketen starten, aber wo sie wieder herunterkommen - das sei nicht sein Fachgebiet.
