Erasing History, Diplomacy, Truth And Life On Earth

By Dr. Paul Craig Roberts: One of the reasons that countries fail is that collective memory is continually destroyed as older generations pass away and are replaced by new ones who are disconnected from what came before.
Initially, the disconnect was handled by history and by discussions around family tables. For example, when I was a kid there were still grandparents whose fathers had fought for the Confederacy. They had no slaves and owned no plantations. They fought because their land was invaded by Lincoln’s armies. Today if Southern families still know the facts, they would protect their children by not telling them. Can you imagine what would happen to a child in a public school that took this position?
Frustrated by the inability of the Union Army to defeat the Army of Northern Virginia led by West Point graduate Robert E. Lee, Lincoln resorted to war criminals. Generals Sherman and Sherridan, operating under the drunken General Grant, were the first modern war criminals who conducted war against civilian women and children, their homes and food supply.

My Grandfather Nelson Mandela Fought Apartheid ~ I See The Parallels With The Jewish State Israel

Jewish 'Israel’s regime of oppression is even worse' than South African Apartheid.
By Nkosi Zwelivelile: It took an international effort to end institutionalised racism in my country – now it must happen again, for Palestinian people
My grandfather, Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela, would have turned 100 this year. The world is marking the centenary of his birth and celebrating his leadership in the struggle to end apartheid in South Africa. But while my country has long been free from racist minority rule, the world is not yet free of the crime of apartheid.
My grandfather Nelson Mandela fought apartheid. I see the parallels with IsraelRelatives of 12-year-old Faris Hafez al-Sarasawi at his funeral. He was killed after Israeli soldiers’ intervention in the ‘Great March of Return’ demonstrations in Gaza, October 2018.
Like Madiba and Desmond Tutu before me, I see the eerie similarities between Israel’s racial laws and policies towards Palestinians, and the architecture of apartheid in South Africa. We South Africans know apartheid when we see it. In fact, many recognise that, in some respects, Israel’s regime of oppression is even worse.

Exit King Lear As Women Claim The Centre Stage

"When is this push for female domination going to stop? I’m ashamed of my sex the way things are going. These women seem determined to emasculate men at every turn."
By Mike Buchanan, J4MB: The feminist assault on the artistic creations of men – invariably white men – continues apace, mostly at taxpayers’ expense. A piece in today’s Times, emphases ours:
The time has come when having an actress play a male Shakespeare character is no longer enough, the deputy artistic director of the Royal Shakespeare Company has said. Now, you should consider changing the character’s gender altogether — for every one, from Lear to Falstaff.
Erica Whyman said she had considered switching the genders of the protagonists in the RSC’s production of Romeo and Juliet, which has the company’s first female Mercutio.

What Will Europe's Internet Look Like After Passage Of Orwellian Directive?

'The trilogues are not held in secret because the negotiators are sure that you'll be delighted with the outcome and don't want to spoil the surprise. They're meetings where well-organised, powerful corporate lobbyists' voices are heard and the public is unable to speak.'
By Tyler Durden: Last month, members of the EU Parliament voted to advance a controversial copyright directive that contains provisions forcing tech giants to install content filters, while also setting in place a potential tax on hyperlinking.
The bill, known as Article 13, would filter everything anyone posts online and match it to a crowdsourced database of "copyrighted works" which anyone can add or change.
Another portion of the directive, Article 11, is a "link tax" that would ban a quoting more than one word from an article which links to another publication - unless you are using a platform which has paid for a linking license.

Lock Up Your Sons

'We live in a culture that hates men.'
By : “Look at this [sic] chorus of entitled white men justifying a serial rapist’s arrogated entitlement,” wrote Georgetown University professor Christine Fair, referring to Senate Republicans and the guilty-until-proven innocent Supreme Court nominee (now Justice) Brett Kavanaugh. “All of them deserve miserable deaths while feminists laugh as they take their last gasps. Bonus: we castrate their corpses and feed them to swine? Yes.”
“It is hard to read an article like this and avoid the conclusion that we live in a culture that hates women, just hates us,” spat Chloe Angyal on MSNBC, referring to the University of Virginia “rape” case. A woman Rolling Stone called “Jackie” had claimed that several members of a fraternity took turns raping her at a party. The magazine ended up paying $1.65 million to the fraternity because “Jackie” lied. But the fact that it was so easy for so many to believe the outrageous lie shows, in truth, that we live in a culture that hates men.
“But really, guess who’s perpetuating all of these kinds of actions? It’s the men in this country,” Senator Mazie Hirono(D-Hawaii) said recently. She was referring, of course, to the assault allegation against Kavanaugh. “And I just want to say to the men in this country: Just shut up and step up. Do the right thing, for a change.”
