EU’s Latest Attempt to Kill Memes With Internet Copyright Reform Blocked
Just months after the wide-reaching reforms of the EU-led General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) have been implemented, an otherwise simple addendum to the landmark spate of Internet legislature has been blocked. Known as the Copyright Directive, the draft legislation debuted in the European Court and is intended to enforce copyright law on the internet in a...

4.3.5: Regions and marks
Another useful concept from Emacs is that of regions and marks. In Emacs-speak `point' is where the cursor is and `mark' is somewhere where you leave a mark to come back to later. The command to set the mark at the current point is `^@' as in Emacs, a hieroglyphic which usually means holding down the control key and pressing the space key. On some systems, such as the limited version of telnet provided with a well-known non-UNIX-based windowing system, you can't send this sequence, and you need to bind a different sequence to set-mark-command. One possibility is `\e ' (escape followed by space), as in MicroEMACS. (Some X Windows configurations don't allow ^@ to work in an xterm, either, though that is usually fixable.)

To continue with Emacs language, the region between point and mark is described simply as `the region'. In zsh, you can't have this highlighted, as you might be used to with editors running directly under windowing systems, so the easiest way to find out the ends of the region is with ^x^x, exchange-point-and-mark, which I mentioned before --- mark, by default, is left at the beginning of the line, hence the behaviour you saw above.

Various editing commands --- usually those with `region' in the name --- operate on this. The most usual are those which kill or copy the region. Annoyingly, kill-region isn't bound --- in Emacs, it's ^w, but zsh follows the tradition of having that bound to backward-kill-word, even though that's also available as the traditional Emacs binding \e^?. So it's probably useful to rebind it. To copy the region, the usual binding `\ew' works.

You then `yank' back the text copied or killed at another point with `^y'. The shell implements the `kill ring' feature, which means if you perform a yank, then type `<ESC>y' (yank-pop) repeatedly, the shell cycles back through previously killed or copied text, so that you have more available than just the last one.

Being a Marine Taught Me How to Kill, But Not How to Handle Death | Literary Hub
Many will argue that there is nothing remotely spiritual in combat. Consider this. Mystical or religious experiences have four common components: constant awareness of one’s own inevitable death, total focus on the present moment, the valuing of other people’s lives above one’s own, and being part of a larger religious community such as the Sangha, ummah, or church. All four of these exist in combat. The big difference is that the mystic sees heaven and the warrior sees hell. Whether combat is the dark side of the same vision, or only something equivalent in intensity, I simply don’t know. I do know that at age 15 I had a mystical experience that scared the hell out of me and both it and combat put me into a different relationship with ordinary life and eternity. Most of us, including me, would prefer to think of a sacred space as some light-filled wondrous place where we can feel good and find a way to shore up our psyches against death. We don’t want to think that something as ugly and brutal as combat could be involved in any way with the spiritual. However, would any practicing Christian say that Calvary Hill was not a sacred space? Witness the demons of Tibetan Buddhism, ritual torture practiced by certain Native American tribes, the darker side of voodoo, or the cruel martyrdom of saints of all religions. Ritual torture or martyrdom can be either meaningless and terrible suffering or a profound religious experience, depending upon what the sufferer brings to the situation. The horror remains the same.
Combat is precisely such a situation.
