'Gilets jaunes' protesters threaten to bring France to a standstill | World news | The Guardian
“The so-called gilets jaunes (yellow vests) protest movement has no official organisation, no identified leader and no political affiliation. Instead, it has been almost entirely coordinated on social media.

As a result, the French authorities fear the location of the protests is almost impossible to pin down and nobody has a clue how many people will turn up.”

ЕСПЧ впервые признал политический мотив в преследовании Навального российскими властями. Это очень редкое решение — Meduza
В случае Навального признан именно политический мотив нарушения
Большая палата решила, что с каждым разом предлоги для задержаний Навального становились все более неправдоподобными. А в двух случаях у них не было никакой оправданной цели, кроме политического преследования. Это были задержания во время одиночного пикета около здания Следственного комитета России 27 октября 2012 года и около здания Замоскворецкого суда в день оглашение приговора по «Болотному делу» — 24 февраля 2014 года. В обоих случаях Навальный не был лидером протестных акций. Его забирали просто как известного оппозиционного политика.

Кроме того, суд обратил внимание на ужесточение порядка проведения публичных мероприятий и ответственности за его нарушение (вплоть до уголовной), а также попытки властей взять под контроль политическую активность оппозиции.

Mass Hacks of Private Email Aren’t Whistleblowing, They are at Odds With It | Just Security
There might be cases in which a hacker’s breach of a private citizen’s email might reveal something so explosive, so terrible, that some might justify the ethics of the breach – or at least not deem the fruits of the breach off-limits from further coverage. But it’s worth noting that the Fourth Amendment’s broad prohibition against warrantless searches means that an unwarranted government hack of someone’s account, revealing terrible wrongdoing, would not only be cause for damages against the government, but exclusion of that evidence in any criminal case brought against the wrongdoer. The “exclusionary rule” was designed precisely for the purpose of vindicating individual rights, drawing a line with few exceptions where the ends cannot justify the means.

Slow Down, Emmanuel Macron! – Foreign Policy
e is no clear road back to a 60 percent approval rating. If one exists, however, it will be a road in reverse. He must reverse the perception of Macron the monarch, reverse the perception of “president of the rich,” and reverse the perception that jobs of the future matter more than the jobs of today. But such a charm offen

Tech C.E.O.s Are in Love With Their Principal Doomsayer - The New York Times
"Being gay, Mr. Harari said, has helped his work — it set him apart to study culture more clearly because it made him question the dominant stories of his own conservative Jewish society. “If society got this thing wrong, who guarantees it didn’t get everything else wrong as well?” he said."

The Supreme Court: should we abolish it? - Vox
rfectly reasonable to ask if we should abolish the Supreme Court, or at the very least strip the Court of its ability to overturn laws that it rules unconstitutional. If the Court is no longer a neutral arbiter of the law, if it’s gradually shape-shifting into a partisan weapon, then maybe it’s time to rethink its role in our constitutional system.

I reached out to Mark Tushnet, a law professor at Harvard University, to talk about the case for abolishing
