This #quantity is a #problem with limited #media skills.

What we lack most of all is the #courage to understand what we know and find the right conclusions.

A #Generation in #Japan Faces a Lonely #Death

To many residents in Mrs. Ito’s complex, the deaths were the natural and frightening conclusion of Japan’s journey since the 1960s. A single-minded focus on economic growth, followed by painful economic stagnation over the past generation, had frayed families and communities, leaving them trapped in a demographic crucible of increasing age and declining births.

#Deglobalization: curing the economic and social ills of #globalization

Neoliberalism is founded on free trade, the concept of private business, and a minimal role of the state. It is the mental framework of globalization. It also comes with a huge social cost. To offer a comprehensive paradigm to replace neoliberal globalization is deglobalization for the developing countries.

The deglobalization paradigm rests on some solid recommendations for its operationalization. Foremost of these concepts is the return to the production for domestic market as the nucleus of the economy, rather than globalization’s production for export markets.

In order to preserve the community, production of goods should be prioritized at the level of the community... mehr anzeigen

How Facebook Figures Out Everyone You've Ever Met

In real life, in the natural course of conversation, it is not uncommon to talk about a person you may know. You meet someone and say, “I’m from Sarasota,” and they say, “Oh, I have a grandparent in Sarasota,” and they tell you where they live and their name, and you may or may not recognize them.
 

They say it's good to speak something from the soul, but isn't it silly that many people have already sold their soul?

How Smartphones #Hijack Our #Minds

“Smartphones have become so entangled with our existence that, even when we’re not peering or pawing at them, they tug at our #attention, diverting precious cognitive resources. Just suppressing the desire to check our #phone, which we do routinely and subconsciously throughout the day, can debilitate our thinking. The fact that most of us now habitually keep our phones 'nearby and in sight,' the researchers noted, only magnifies the mental toll," writes the Wall Street Journal.

What is Socialism?

When it is established it must be on a global basis, as a real alternative to the present system. In a socialist society there will be common ownership of the Earth by its inhabitants and no minority will dictate to us that production must give priority to profit. There will be no owners. The people of the world will share the world. Production will be for use, not sale. The only questions we will need to ask about production are what do people need and can these needs be met. Science and technology will at last be used to their fullest potential and in the service of humanity. The basic socialist principle will be that people give according to their abilities and take according to their needs. There will be no buying or selling, as money will have been abolished and will not be necessary in a world of free access. Socialism will mean a world without borders or frontiers, social classes or leaders, slates or governments, force or coercion.

Now, with the situation exploding, over 1000 dead, and half a million #refugees, the question must be asked: What is the cost of such silence?

And furthermore, if the UN is prepared to act as cynically as nation-states, what reason is there for it to exist at all?
