This week’s report seems to carry the theme of why I sometimes loathe people. So I’m sorry for those of you who hoped for something cheery.
Governments not trusting its citizens, conspiracy nuts clinging to confirmation bias and dismissing facts, sexism directed at men is shrugged at by some and being fat and unhealthy is celebrated.
Lovely how western society seems to embrace decadence and hedonism at the cost of others. Self-control and being accountable for your own actions is not something to aspire to it seems. Do what ever you want and blame everyone else for your misery or if something goes wrong – never your fault.
While other parts of the world people flee for their lives from wars and hope that one mouthful of rice will keep them alive till next day.
Maybe we need another World War or just a Cold War, which costs fewer lives, to put our view on life in perspective, make us not only appreciate life again but treat each other with respect and dignity.
Something the big religions claim to teach, but instead they seem too busy to judge and wage wars with those not following them.
WIKILEAKS: Surveillance Cameras Around The Country Are Being Used In A Huge Spy Network – Read it Orwell must be spinning like mad in his grave right now.
Assange visade sig vara ett fegt kräk – Read it I know, it’s in Swedish, but find a place to translate it. Refreshing read as it doesn’t contain any of the far-out myths I’ve read from non-Nordic media. The myths I’ve read is not about the Sweden I know and have lived in.
Body scanners set for November roll-out – Read it Welcome to the United States of Totalitarian Australia. As a foreign national I wonder if they are allowed to deny me travel.
There’s no need to ban the man – Read it An absolutely beautifully written article. And it’s really refreshing that the author is a woman. Thank you!
Why I’m No Longer A Journalist, But Just A Blogger – Read it Interesting read regarding blogging vs journalism vs opinion vs accountability vs facts.
Zoe Holmes and Kath Read embrace the ‘F’ word: Fat and proud – Read it I wonder if they are also proud of promoting an unhealthy lifestyle which has a great impact on healthcare. Not to mention, which I know is a cliche, but in other parts of the world there are people starving to death while these two gluttons ooze outwards.
