End of an Era? The Slow Death of Europe's Social Democrats - SPIEGEL ONLINE - International

Across Europe, social democratic parties are in crisis and on Sunday, the German SPD could slide to its worst result since World War II. What has happened to the once-glorious center-left parties on the Continent? And how can they recover? By SPIEGEL Staff
 

Who’s the #world’s leading eco-vandal? It’s Angela #Merkel

Unlike #Trump, she has no malicious intent. She did not set out to destroy the agreements she helped to create. But the #Earth’s systems do not respond to mission statements or speeches or targets. They respond to hard fact. What counts, and should be judged, as she seeks a fourth term as German #chancellor in th

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

Goodbye to all that democracy

https://mmsylvia.wordpress.com/2017/09/09/goodbye-to-all-that-democracy/

“We can either have #democracy in this country or we can have great #wealth concentrated in the hands of a few, but we can’t have both.” — Louis D. Brandeis, US Supreme Court justice (1856–1941)

Don’t #Whitewash the #Hiroshima #Bombing

source: http://www.theamericanconservative.com/articles/dont-whitewash-the-hiroshima-bombing/
#America’s deliberate targeting of #civilians, and its post-facto justifications, are clearly not unique, either in World War II, or in the wars before or since. Other nations, including #Japan itself, added their own #horror to the books, mostly without remorse. But #history’s only use of #nuclear #weapons holds a significant place in infamy, especially on this August 6. America’s lack of introspection over one of the single most destructive days in the history of human #warfare continues, with 21st-century #consequences.

In the process, #Turkey was transformed. It has become a republic of #fear. In most instances, individuals who have been detained have yet to see a #judge. An arrest has, therefore, become a #prison sentence.

No one asks the important #question to the #Trump #CNN #Tweet - I do it!

Here is the tweet: https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/881503147168071680

The #video was created in the absolute dirtiest corner of the #Internet. Why does #Donald have time to surf there?
We know most of his time he watches #Fox #news:

Can anyone tell me, when the #president does his #job?

Did they really isolate this puppet with #TV and Internet so far that "THEY" can work and decide everything without him?

TED: Immigrant voices make democracy stronger (Sayu Bhojwani)

In politics, representation matters -- and that's why we should elect leaders who reflect their country's diversity and embrace its multicultural tapestry, says Sayu Bhojwani. Through her own story of becoming an American citizen, the immigration scholar reveals how her love and dedication to her country turned into a driving force for political change. "We have fought to be here," she says, calling immigrant voices to action. "It's our country, too."

The Hackers Russia-Proofing Germany’s Elections

The Chaos Computer Club, a multigenerational army of activists, has made the country’s democracy a lot tougher to undermine.

What is the value of #truth in #politics?

Is the #lie not only belonging to the demagogues but also to the #politicians? What does this mean for the #essence and #dignity of #democracy? Isn't truth without #power as miserable as power, which can only be claimed with lies?

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.

Toward Accountability - #Data, #Fairness, #Algorithms, #Consequences

For the exact same reasons, school choice prompts people to self-segregate. Black families choose schools that are predominantly black; white families choose schools that are predominantly white. They did this long before open data, but with the rise of open data, self-segregation has escalated. NYC schools are now the MOST segregated schools in the country. Open data enabled people to segregate even though we know that this has serious long-term social and individual repercussions. Even privileged children are better off in diverse environments and, yet, most privileged parents will opt otherwise if given the choice.
