Rezension ǀ Was wäre ein selbstbestimmtes Leben? — der Freitag
Rezension Michael Pauens und Harald Welzers Schrift "Autonomie" verteidigt den Mut, sich seiner eigenen Autonomie zu bedienen [...] Zwischen derartigen Gewissensfragen erstreckt sich der Handlungsspielraum, um den es Michael Pauen und Harald Welzer in ihrem Buch "Autonomie. Eine Verteidigung" geht: Selbstbestimmung trotz Gefahr für das eigene Leben und das der Liebsten, innere Unabhängigkeit und Mündigkeit trotz der Gefahr der sozialen Isolation. Diese Erörterung ist so notwendig wie schwierig. Denn so notwendig und wertvoll Autonomie auf der einen Seite ist, so schwierig zu begreifen ist sie auf der anderen. Zwei Beispiele unter vielen: Handelt ein Veganer autonom? [...] Autonomie, so die Prämisse von und Pauen/Welzer, sei erstens eine Errungenschaft und zweites als solche stets wiederherzustellen. [!!!Autonomy im Rahmen der Gesellschaft!!!: Job, pay tax, shop, etc] //&! youtu.be/NKAevgGvqjw << also on delicious. &! youtu.be/csIW4W_DYX4 - Human Virtues!

Why the phrase ‘first world problem’ is condescending to everyone | Books | The Guardian
first world problem [...] To pre-emptively concede that my problem is just a first world one is to ostentatiously check my privilege before anyone else tells me to do so. At the same time, I remind myself and everyone in earshot that we are indeed living in the “first world”. So it is also a humblebrag. [...] For a start, it patronises those outside the “first world” by implying that hunger, disease and war are not only prevalent among the global poor but in some way the sole conditions of their lives. It implicitly characterises the less fortunate majority of the world’s population as saintly idiots who would never dream of complaining about anything more trivial. In the guise of right-on sympathy, we condescendingly picture others as living lives of homogeneous horror while rhetorically rendering them invisible as people, denying the individuality of everyone’s various joys and sorrows. [...] As is well known, we all compare ourselves to others close by, and feel bad if we are ...

Call to set aside apprenticeships for care leavers - BBC News
[ opening the door for people, they have to walk through. these are people often with complex needs thus need a holistic solution and support that in austere times local and public services can't provide ] Thousands of apprenticeships in England should be reserved for young people coming out of care, a charity says. Barnardo's is calling on ministers to reserve 20,000 apprenticeships for 16-18 year olds from the care system. Care leavers' potential and not only their entry qualifications should be taken into account, Barnardo's says. [...] The strategy says there is a significant gap between the educational achievements of care leavers and their peers. In June, the Prison Reform Trust launched an independent review to examine why so many children in care in England and Wales end up in the criminal justice system. [...] Instead of apprenticeships depending on entry qualifications only, care leavers' potential should also be taken into account, the charity says. [...] intensive support

Is this the end for the Freedom of Information Act? - BBC News
The commission's remit is to look at two substantive issues that officials keep complaining about: "whether the operation of the Act adequately recognises the need for a 'safe space' for policy development and implementation and frank advice", and whether complying with the act is too much of a burden. [...] The safe space? So what about the "safe space" arguments? Under current law, section 35 of the Act allows the withholding of policy development work, private office communications & letters between ministers. If that isn't enough, section 36 allows ministers to withhold other information that would undermine the safe space for discussion. [...] That is, more or less, the information that a good transparency law should publish. It is supposed to help us find cover-ups, incompetence and crookedness by the powerful. [...] there have been no individual releases that have actually caused any problems. [well, if u dont know what 2 ask 4 specifically, u dont ask #insider #whistleblower ]

The pursuit of happiness: what is happiness, and how can we make ourselves happier?
Since the days of Aristotle, happiness was thought to have at least two aspects: hedonia (pleasure) and eudaimonia (a life well lived). In contemporary psychology, happiness is referred to as simply pleasure and meaning. Positive psychologists such as Dr Martin Seligman have recently added one more distinct component to the definition of happiness: engagement. Engagement refers to living a “good life” of work, family friends and hobbies. // see also David Brooks book on Character, living life for your eulogy.

Universitäten: Avanessian bemängelt akademische Rückschrittlichkeit - SPIEGEL ONLINE
wie ein Virus der Belanglosigkeit. Ich meine eine Ideenarmut und Schwerfälligkeit, die gewollt ist und geradezu karrierefördernd. [...] Die Universität erscheint hier als ein groß angelegter und staatlich geförderter Verhinderungsbetrieb, der am eigenen Mythos des "kritischen Denkens" verzweifelt festhält - aus Existenzangst und ohne zu sehen, dass das "kritische Denken" längst selbst zu einer Ware geworden ist, die mit Drittmittelanträgen gegen echtes Geld getauscht wird. [...] die Logik der Universität wäre demnach die Logik auch einer Gesellschaft, [...] Es darf gar nicht existieren, das Neue, weil sonst das Alte seine Legitimität verlieren würde.

Chief constable warns against ‘drift towards police state’ | UK news | The Guardian
The battle against extremism could lead to a “drift towards a police state” in which officers are turned into “thought police”, one of Britain’s most senior chief constables has warned. [...] It is politicians, academics and others in civil society who have to define what counts as extremist ideas, he says. [...] He stressed he supported new counter-terrorism measures unveiled by the government last week, including bans on alleged extremist speakers from colleges. Fahy said government, academics and civil society needed to decide where the line fell between free speech and extremism. Otherwise, he warned, it would be decided by the security establishment, so-called “securocrats”, including the security services, government and senior police chiefs like Fahy. &! see Twitter & FB & GitHub now (have to comply with regional/country specific censorship et al - ie Germany got laws against the display and public use of Nazi symbols - tcrn.ch/1w62DmH

Occupy Central’s polite protesters: The Hong Kong demonstrators are disciplined, organized, and prepared.
The Occupy Central demonstrators are courteous. That’s actually what makes them so dangerous. [...] These aren’t just idealists; these are savvy political operators who understand successful nonviolent resistance. [...] The answers to these questions can be found in the appropriately titled “Manual of Disobedience.” Published online several days before the Occupy Central campaign was set to begin, the document (written in Chinese and English) is part how-to guide and part philosophical mission statement. It details the movement’s tactics, the rules for nonviolent protest, the legal codes that may be violated, and the exact procedure to follow should someone be arrested. It also implores protesters to “avoid physical confrontation, but also to avoid developing hatred in [their] heart,” and explains that the protests must be a model of the values that they are striving to see in their society, namely “equality, tolerance, love, and care.” [...] Book - Blueprint for Revolution.

Gay and bisexual youth are nearly 4 times more likely to attempt suicide - Vox
"The findings emphasize the need for greater attention in research and public health interventions to similarities and differences among diverse groups of sexual minority youth." The study acknowledges that even its own categorization of sexual minorities may oversimplify the issue. Previous research, for instance, found health outcomes can differ starkly among people who identify as homosexual and those who identify as bisexual. The study also doesn't account for transgender individuals and some of the other forms of sexual and gender identification, such as genderqueer and intersex.

ANXIETY, DEPRESSION, VIOLENCE, AND THE STIGMA OF A NERVOUS BREAKDOWN
What is shameful is not being a victim of violence, or having a termination as a result, or receiving threats, or falling apart, but instead being a complicit part of a society that says that victims should remain silent and hide the crimes of others, as well as their own frailties.

Only DAU thinks Secret or Whisper or any other consumer grade app, on a consumer grade tablet or phone, promising keeping them anonymity, uses these apps to 'blow the whistle.' ahhm troll, hate and gossip or even leak stuff. I thought Silicon Valley ppl are smart. No they just know how to code & design ... "to make the world better" ... sort of. “A court order without probable cause or even a subpoena may be enough for law enforcement or for a civil litigant to demand records.“ Conley went on to say that anonymous app companies need to make sure their backend data practices line up with the advertised purpose of their product: “They need to think through their own process. If you are offering a service that is about providing anonymous communication, then if you are retaining their identity and tying it to their communication, then you are kind of undermining the whole purpose of your service.”

Extra legal protection is to be given to people carrying out good deeds, volunteering or planning local events who end up being involved in liability claims, the government has announced. Those thinking of doing something to help others should not be put off by the risk of being sued, ministers said. Under the new law for England and Wales, judges will be urged to show leniency in cases that get to court.

Facing the Truth: The Case for Reparations - YouTube

Martha Nussbaum - The Fragility of Goodness - YouTube
“Our emotional life maps our incompleteness: A creature without any needs would never have reasons for fear, or grief, or hope, or anger.” || http://www.brainpickings.org/index.php/2012/10/12/martha-nussbaum-take-my-advice/ + “To be a good human being is to have a kind of openness to the world, an ability to trust uncertain things beyond your own control.” || http://www.brainpickings.org/index.php/2014/03/14/martha-nussbaum-bill-moyers-world-of-ideas/ || || Polluted by things we can not control. ... Tragedy comes only to those who live life. || Being a human means accepting promises from other people and trusting that other people will be good to you. When that is too much to bear, it is always possible to retreat into the thought, “I’ll live for my own comfort, for my own revenge, for my own anger, and I just won’t be a member of society anymore.” That really means, “I won’t be a human being anymore.”

Joe Gebbia - The Airbnb Story - YouTube
AirBnB is the ebay for places and experiences. Sharing is caring - you space. This kindness to open up you personal space to strangers ... magical moments can happen. Stories are written. Lives are changed. Still there is the 80/20 - there will always be bad eggs, say bad customers. And because national travel is vry affordable and people want to escape their walls on the weekend if they could afford and its users use it for niche items/services >> providing accommodation for events. Staying in someones place is very different than a hotel. a hotel is generic. every AirBnB is different. It is an experience. not only might you experience a new city, but you also experience someones life, how he or she or they live. Their view. Plus - this is the time of the Airbnb - experience services - because millennials favour experiences of commoditised consumer goods. and babyboomers want that cake too because of the youthification trend. only retrospective u see the pieces of the puzzle.

▶ 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.) In a talk and audience discussion, Sandel asks us to think honestly on this question: In our current democracy, is too much for sale?

Staatsanwaltschaft erließ Haftbefehl gegen Hoeneß - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Am Dienstagabend meldete sich am Rande seines Saarland-Besuchs auch Joachim Gauck zu den Vorwürfen gegen Hoeneß zu Wort: Gegenüber dem Saarländischen Rundfunk sagte der Bundespräsident, er werde "keine moralische Verurteilung vornehmen." Sein Interesse sei vielmehr, "dass wir aus solchen Fällen lernen und begreifen: Zu einer funktionierenden Demokratie gehört die Bereitschaft aller, etwas dazu beizutragen. Wir können nicht wählen, ob wir Steuern zahlen, jedenfalls nicht legal." Es gehöre "zur Verantwortung eines mündigen Bürgers, Pflichten zu akzeptieren", so Gauck weiter. "Es gehört zu einer gewachsenen Bürgerkultur, dass wir uns mitverantwortlich fühlen. Dieses Element der Mitverantwortung sollte jeder im Kopf haben, der manchmal über zu hohe Steuern stöhnt." Gauck äußerte sich auch zur Vorbildfunktion von Uli Hoeneß und sagte, Menschen seien nicht fehlerfrei, aber bei Personen, die im Fokus stünden, fielen "Fehler ganz besonders auf". Gauck fügte hinzu: "Wenn Vorbilder ihren Vorbi
