Facing the Truth: The Case for Reparations - YouTube (Debate, Reparations Movement) + "" That existential something, of course, is that the United States and its economic infrastructure are the products of so much brutality, stealing, lying and exploitation, of so many hundreds of millions of people not only within “our” borders but — as the center of a vast economic and military empire — that it would not only be impossible to compensate all of its victims without going broke many times over, reparations would force American political leaders to concede that we are indeed an exceptional nation, if only in our violence and perfidy.

I only hope Michael Schumacher pulls through so that he can see all the nice things people are saying about him - Telegraph
For years Michael was the perfect pantomime villain, particularly in this country; German, of course, ruthlessly efficient, ultra-aggressive. Whereas previous greats such as Sir Jackie Stewart or Juan Manuel Fangio left the door open to their rivals when racing, for fear of making what could easily have been fatal contact, Michael went all out in his pursuit of victory. Sometimes he overstepped the mark – Jerez in 1997 and Rascasse in 2006 spring to mind – and those indiscretions made him unpalatable to the sporting purist. He was marked down by some, including me, as a tainted champion. But you cannot argue with his achievements. [...] [Sebastian Vettel is the same type of athlete. going always for the gap.] [...] He had complete and utter self-belief. It was what made him a champion. [without arrogance] [confidence and trust in ones abilities]

Ungleichheit macht unglücklich.
Ist die Kluft zwischen Arm und Reich zu groß, unterhöhlt dies das Vertrauen der Menschen in ihr Gemeinwesen. Die Folge: Sie fühlen sich unzufrieden und weniger glücklich. Dies haben Bremer Forscher in einer aktuellen Studie bestätigt. [...] Jan Delhey kommentiert: „Europäer wollen Wohlstand und Einkommensgleichheit – in dieser Reihenfolge. Eine Politik, die diese beiden Ziele unterstützt, ist am ehesten dazu geeignet, Europäer glücklich zu machen.“
