It creates conflicts with the laws of countries in #Europe and elsewhere around the globe, which are intended to protect #privacy interests and restrict the disclosure and transfer of personal data to a third country.
If the U.S. get access to data in other countries, will these other countries also get access to data in the U.S.?

How #Britain Lost Its Cool

source: https://www.project-syndicate.org/commentary/cool-britannia-and-merkels-germany-by-mark-leonard-2017-10
How, then, did the country move from #cosmopolitanism back to nationalism and nativism? The short answer is that Britain’s #rebranding became a victim of its own success. By accommodating previously excluded citizens, the new national story made those at the center of the older, narrower version feel like a threatened minority. And when the #Brexit #referendum rolled around, they fought back.

How Britain Lost Its Cool by Mark Leonard - Project Syndicate

In the past 20 years, the UK and Germany have switched positions, with the latter now representing openness while the former has come to embody backward-looking nationalism. But there is no reason to believe that the two countries won't swap places again.

Since 2005, little #girls can decide: Do I become a #hairdresser — or #chancellor?

Donald #Trump Is Making #Europe Liberal Again

It was also just one data point, and so it had to be interpreted with caution. But the pattern has been repeated so far in every major European #election since Trump’s victory. In the #Netherlands, #France and the U.K., right-wing parties faded down the stretch run of their campaigns and then further underperformed their polls on election day. (The latest example came on Sunday in the French legislative elections, when Marine Le Pe

Will #Nato become a transatlantic #Frontex?

By establishing a clear link between #terrorism and #migration in his speech, #Trump qualified migration as a major security threat that requires joint military action in order to be mitigated.

When the Moors Ruled in Europe



'The contribution the #Moors made to #Europe during their 700-year #reign in #Spain and #Portugal ending in the 15th century. Filmed in the #Spanish region of #Andalusia, mostly in the cities of #Granada, #Cordoba and the #Moroccan city of #Fes.
The #era ended with the #Reconquista during which the #Catholic authorities burnt over 1,000,000 #Arabic #texts.'

The great British #Brexit #robbery: how our #democracy was hijacked

A shadowy global operation involving big data, billionaire friends of #Trump and the disparate forces of the Leave #campaign influenced the result of the #EU #referendum. As Britain heads to the polls again, is our electoral process still fit for purpose?

Why does the west hate Putin? The secret reason

http://australianvoice.livejournal.com/5803.html

'The #Russians and #Chinese have forced the West to adhere to #international #law and avoid an #illegal #war. Further, the Chinese see this as a beginning of a #new #era in #world #politics. They want to "de-Americanize" the world. The Russians want to see a "multi-polar" world. This means that the US and its small group of friends in #Western #Europe and #Japan will need to recognize that they cannot make all the #major #decisions in the world on their own.'

Western political elites have forgotten the average people

The dilemma, however, was that deep economic ­integration could not take place without significant social and political integration and institutional harmonisation at the same time. Europe tried to evade this dilemma by progressing on the economic integration side, but moving very slowly on the political integration side. This brought Europe to its ­current impasse.

Apocalypse then: The lessons of #violence and inequality through the ages

source: http://www.economist.com/news/books-and-arts/21717801-only-catastrophe-truly-reduces-inequality-according-historical-survey-lessons
Only four things, Mr #Scheidel argues, cause large-scale levelling. #Epidemics and #pandemics can do it, as the Black Death did when it changed the relative values of land and #labour in late medieval #Europe. So can the complete #collapse of whole states and economic systems, as at the end of the Tang dynasty in China and the disintegration of the western Roman #Empire. When everyone is pauperised, the rich lose most. Total #revolution, of the Russian or Chinese sort, fits the bill. So does the 20th-century sibling of such revolutions: the war of mass-mobilisation.
