DSK and Dodo the Pimp: Sex and power in France - Newsnight - YouTube
complicit and impunity - see same in UK with abuse scandals and paedophiles up and down Britain's Society and especially Westminster - and Met Police looking away during recent history till back then during Thatcher's time and maybe even way back even more. What a picture of society and what it means in a persons life to have "power." And also include the Church! Sure, back then paedophiles, rapists and abusers of any kind often got away with it more or less because of the stigma as victim (you brought this on you) and the lack (non existent) of prosecution and support. Dark ages. Dark ages. That is recent history. Just one generation. Thinking about it is abhorring - that these people still shape our life's to some extent.

BBC News - Midwife abortion objection case heard at Supreme Court
Almost 50 years after abortion became legal in England, Scotland and Wales, it remains a deeply emotive issue, both for its supporters and for those who object to abortion on conscientious grounds. Under Roman Catholic doctrine, life begins at conception, and no human being has the right to take the life of an unborn child. Although many Catholic women do seek abortions in the UK, the stance taken by the Roman Catholic Church has underpinned many of the pro-life groups which have challenged the legalisation of abortion and the interpretation of the 1967 Abortion Act. [...] Both are practising Roman Catholics and argued that they "hold a religious belief that all human life is sacred from the moment of conception and that termination of pregnancy is a grave offence against human life."

Strafen für Ärzte nach verweigerter Abtreibung für Inderin in Irland - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Der Tod der jungen Inderin hatte eine emotionale Debatte in Irland ausgelöst und den Streit zwischen Abtreibungsgegnern und Befürwortern der Abtreibung im Land befeuert. Der Fall hatte bereits politische Folgen: Im Juli 2013 verabschiedete Irlands Parlament ein Gesetz, das einen Schwangerschaftsabbruch zulässt, wenn das Leben der Mutter gefährdet ist. Abtreibungen sind im katholisch geprägten Irland verboten. +++ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LGBT_rights_in_the_Republic_of_Ireland#Gender_identity & https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7mGgt_Zt3oU &! &!

Tesla Opens Up Patents to Promote Electric Vehicles | Re/code
Elon Musk's legacy will not just be Tesla Motors and SpaceX. It will also be this, being concerned about the future, that the velocity of which the electric car spreads to the consumer around the world isn't steep enough in order to make a dent in the world ... in the world's carbon emission reduction / global warming. He puts the common and public good before profits and WallStreet. Knowing and banking on the Tesla Brand and still having the first mover advantage in 5 years. Elon Musk picks his fights really well. Marrying a capitalistic profit motive of a company that was on the brink of failure and the public good/common good of reducing carbon footprint of the world. Establishing, enabling industry standards. Preventing technological incompatibilities and silos. Trying to prevent consumer frustration and friction. This is Win-Win. If Wall Street tanks the Stock this Friday, we should all give up ... on Wall Street already. // http://onforb.es/1mNg7Jw

eBay Shrugged: Pierre Omidyar believes there should be no philanthropy without profit | PandoDaily
Pierre Omidyar. The role of Omidyar Network in so many major events of the past week — helping elect India’s ultranationalist leader Narendra Modi; co-funding Ukraine regime-change NGOs with USAID, resulting in a deadly civil war and Monday’s election of Ukrainian billionaire oligarch Petro Poroshenko; and now, this week’s first-ever sit-down TV interview with Edward Snowden, through an arrangement between NBC News and Pierre Omidyar’s First Look Media — shows how these contradictions are coming to the fore, and shaping our world. [...] Muhammad Yunus failed to dissuade Omidyar: "Let them make money—but why do you want to make money off the poor people?” [...] “Omidyar views the fund as a way of testing his theories about commercializing the sector. ‘It’s really the demonstration impact I’m looking for, primarily,’ he said.” << Billionaires Playground.

▶ Michael Sandel: Why we shouldn't trust markets with our civic life - YouTube
n the past three decades, says Michael Sandel, the US has drifted from a market economy to a market society; it's fair to say that an American's experience of shared civic life depends on how much money they have. (Three key examples: access to education, access to justice, political influence.)
