Die ungestellten Fragen von Oslo
Hat Anders Breivik etwas falsch verstanden, oder haben wir noch nicht verstanden, dass er gar nicht gegen konkrete Menschen kämpfte, sondern gegen Ideen? Die Amokläufer-Psychologie versagt. [...] [ & im gampf gg ISIS "gegen unsere Freiheit" est Sept 2001 ] [...] Der Täter hat keine Gesinnungsgenossen. Seine Radikalisierung beruht auf psychischer und sozialer Abschottung. Er litt unter einer fixen Idee, der Islamisierung Europas, die er weniger in seiner Lebenswelt als in Texten erlebte. Und er lebt noch! Das ist alles eigenartig und neu. Das im vergangenen Jahrzehnt durch massenmediale und politische Rhetorik entstandene Bild des Terrorismus ist in seine Puzzleteile zerfallen. Selbst die wichtige Frage, ob Anders Breivik ideologisch und fundamentalistisch gehandelt hat, wurde viel zu schnell beantwortet.

We have entered a new era of conflict, warns new book
In his new book, Irregular War (IB Tauris) , he reflects on Isis, al-Qaida, Boko Haram, Al Shabab, and the Taliban - all separate manifestations, he says, of a new non-state dynamic driving international conflict through asymmetric and hybrid warfare. But their significance is more fundamental. They are part of what Rogers calls “an historical shift towards revolts from the margins”. And such revolts are made more likely by “the widening global socio-economic divide and the onset of climate disruption”. [...] The causes of conflict are many and deep – economic, political, societal, environmental, demographic. [...] “the increasing marginalisation of the majority of the world’s people caused by the workings of the neo-liberal system of international economic activity” which concentrates most of the fruits of economic growth in the hands of a transglobal elite of some 1.5bn people.

Al Jazeera America to shut down cable news channel - BBC News
Al Jazeera promised to expand its coverage of the US online after the channel shuts down in April. The network replaced Current TV, a network founded by former US Vice President Al Gore. The Qatar-based broadcaster bought Current TV for around $500 million (£308 million). Al Jazeera America was available in about 60 million American homes. Politico notes that the channel reached an average of 19,000 viewers each day in 2015, far fewer than its competitors. The channel struggled with internal turmoil, as well, including multiple discrimination lawsuits that ended up ousting its founding CEO.

fossil fuels // 148$/barrel of oil followed by GFC = peak globalisation based on price ceiling of 148$/barrel of oil "peak oil per capita" << affordability! THUS only renewable energy can sustain globalisation and economic growth! meaning affordable prices for long-term // Alarm bells are Unilever and P&G! // post-88 recession (definitive end of American boom years and baby boomers) and coming globalisation build on Americas purchasing power based on savings & debt (living off credit & debt [fictional economy]) till 2008 // climate change is the defining moment in our species history; extreme weather, ecological environmental disaster, mass extinction of life on planet earth possible. loosing 70% of species by 2100. there is no guarantee that WE will remain! have to be off carbon in 30 years. its down to the wire.

Interview with Former UN Peace Envoy to Syria Lakhdar Brahimi - SPIEGEL ONLINE
USA World Police no more. [...] ISIS - The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant. [...] SPIEGEL: What is your prediction for the future of Syria and the region? Brahimi: Unless there is a real, sustained effort to work out a political solution, there is a serious risk that the entire region will blow up. The conflict is not going to stay inside Syria. It will spill over into the region. It's already destabilizing Lebanon, there are 1.5 million refugees in the country; that represents one third of the population. If it were Germany, it would be the equivalent of 20 million. It is destabilizing because ISIS | SPIEGEL: the most radical and brutal armed opposition group, which seeks to establish a militant Islamic state | Brahimi: is active in both Syria and Iraq already, and Jordan is really struggling to continue resisting. Even Turkey! According to a senior Iraqi official, ISIS has carried out 100 operations in Syria and 1,000 operations in Iraq in just three months. | YT v=XDFi1lno1bs

Katar verurteilt Dichter Mohammed al-Adschami zu lebenslanger Haft - SPIEGEL ONLINE
"Sie importiert all ihre Sachen aus dem Westen. Warum importiert sie nicht Gesetze und Freiheit?" - Mit diesen Versen endet ein Gedicht des Poeten Mohammed bin Raschid al-Dib al-Adschami aus Katar. Und genau wegen dieses Gedichts hat ein Gericht in dem Golfstaat den Dichter am Donnerstag zu lebenslanger Haft verurteilt.

[...]

Für die unter Ausschluss der Öffentlichkeit tagenden Richter hatte der Literat damit die Grenze des Erlaubten überschritten. Sie erkannten ihn für schuldig, den Emir beleidigt und zum Sturz seiner Herrschaft aufgerufen zu haben.

[...]

Der Fall wirft ein Schlaglicht auf die engen Grenzen der Meinungsfreiheit in dem Golfemirat. Zwar präsentieren sich Scheich Hamad und seine Gattin Mosah gerne als aufgeklärte Herrscher, die Kritik dulden und die Pressefreiheit fördern - doch nur bis zu einer bestimmten roten Linie. Diese wird vom Herrscherhaus vorgegeben und muss auch vom medialen Flaggschiff des Landes befolgt werden: dem Nachrichtensender al-Dschasira.
