IMF - They Call It Democracy

“It’s not hard to bring out the worst in large numbers of citizens by constantly pressing their buttons; fear, hate, greed, false pride and blind loyalty are the main emotions used to manipulate people so much these last years. Reversing this process and empowering people through courage, love, generosity, humility and critical thinking is harder but it can and must be done.” -- Coleen Rowley for RootsAction; FBI whistle blower

What is what and who is who and who cares what if who is not, said the reflection to the shadow.

Vladimir Putin
You invade a peaceful sovereign country with an army, shell, bomb and use illegal weaponry on cities. You have declared war, no-one else.

You feed ridiculous lies to the Russian people through your state-owned propaganda machine.

You are the propagandist.

You accuse Western nations of 'banditry' and then state that those countries imposing sanctions against Russia have 'declared war' on Russia.

Vladimir Putin - YOU are the bandit, the criminal, the warmonger, a murderer.

You threaten people with 15 years in jail for spreading 'fake' news of the war - anything, that is, that is outside of your myopic vision.

Vladimir Putin - you are now the 2022 Hitler of Russia.

To the people of Russia - you now have an opportunity through your public rejection of Russia's barbaric war in Ukraine to oust your dictatorial leaders and their minions who have held the Russian people in bondage for decades.

Julian Assange and the war against freedom
There is and never was anything illegal in the case of Julian Assange other than the continued and deplorable actions of dark elements within the US administration - actions which in any other instance would have seen the case thrown out - thrown out due to actions by these dark elements which themselves are outside of and shun both US and international law.
  Should the UK grant the US the Assange extradition request, then the UK administration and justice system will themselves become accomplices of those dark elements.
  One of the underlying tenets, or principles of modern journalism is to examine and report to the public any underhand, illegal or dubious activities of the powerful, including those in government.
  The current US witch hunt against Assange is the greatest threat to and assault upon journalism and the reporting of the truth in history.

_____________

Covid-19 and the future
Social and domestic life in most of the developed and sheltered countries of our world has been torn apart by the covid-19 disease and the lock down measures taken by governments.
 
The wealth of a nation depends on the health and well being of its people and not on their enslavement by capitalism and its goals.
  The coronavirus tragedy unfolding in the US, which does not have a free national health service, will bear sad testimony to that.
  The same scenario is also unfolding in the UK, which once had one of the best free national health services in the world but which has been drastically under resourced by successive governments over the past decade and more.
  In the less developed and less sheltered countries the suffering caused in the main by other people continues unabated - except those suffering must now also face a pandemic.
  Humanity is truly at a crisis crossroads with few, if any, avenues of escape.
  We are not a pleasant species to ourselves when we find ourselves feeling backed into a corner, as human history undeniably shows.
  The only way out of the mess is for us all to work together as a cohesive species and try to forge a true global balance between nature and the survival of civilisation.
  At this present time such a reality appears further away than the ship smoke disappearing below the far horizon.
  Can we pull the ship closer?

_____________

Julian Assange — a warning
The illegal seizure and arrest of Julian Assange should serve as a warning of just how corrupt the involved governments and their minions have become.
  One of the first tricks of dirty governing when faced with any embarrassing exposure of underhand activity is to attempt to discredit and assasinate the character of those releasing the information. History bears testimony to such acts.
  One of the accusations amongst many used to justify the seizure and arrest of Assange was that he used Wikileaks to “meddle” in the internal affairs of states.
  Given that such is exactly what the United States and United Kingdom has persistently done over the past 100 years, such an accusation can only be described as blatant, unashamed hypocrisy. History will reveal such human dregs for the garbage they truly are.
  Dark days indeed lie ahead.

How to Know If It's Time to Move In and Care for an Older Loved One       printable version
13 Sep 2022: posted by the editor - Features, Health, United States

By Janet Campbell

According to a recent AARP study, 90% of Americans over 65 want to stay in their homes as they age. Some can accomplish it solo, but others need additional help to age in place. The following guide explains how to tell if it's time for you to move in with an older loved one.

Watch for Signs
Regular visits with your older parents or other loved ones are essential so you notice if their behavior or physical abilities decline. For example, withdrawing from activities they love, neglecting their appearance, and isolating from family and friends are signs of needing additional care. Other clues are physical problems such as falls, memory issues, or the inability to do household tasks.

Make an appointment with the older adult's primary care doctor for tests to determine if a physical ailment is causing the problems. Perhaps a new medication or therapy can solve the issue. Next, visit a neurologist for a cognitive assessment and recommendations for treatment. These medical visits help you decide if simple changes can be made to keep your loved ones alone in their home or if it's time for you to move in and assist with their care.

Modifying Their Home
Modifications to a home may be necessary so someone can continue to live alone. Caring Senior Service notes that installing smart home devices can automate many processes for older people. You can also hire professionals to take over some maintenance tasks, such as housekeeping and landscaping. Arrange to have any repairs done to the home to keep it in good shape, as well as keep it safe and secure for the entire family. Reach out to Meals on Wheels America to have a nutritious meal delivered on weekdays so seniors don't have to cook every day.

Finally, be sure to keep track of all the home updates you make. Keep receipts for any work that’s completed and take before-and-after photos; the information could come in handy if you need an appraisal in the near future.

Making the Right Move
If it is evident your older loved ones can no longer safely live in their home on their own, you may need to move closer and assist in their care. First, speak with a senior care advisor to determine if moving to an assisted living facility is necessary or if home care is an option. Then, have an honest discussion with your loved ones so you can agree on what living option will work best for all of you. 

If you decide to move in and help with care, here are a few tips to keep you sane during the moving process:

  • Decide if you want to sell your furniture or pay to have it moved.
  • Go through all your possessions and decide what items are essential enough to take with you and sell or donate the rest.
  • Make sure you clearly label your boxes so you know exactly where everything is. This can make it easier to unpack once you’ve arrived.
  • Consider renting a movable portable storage container instead of a moving truck to have your belongings transported. 
  • Arrange a fun packing party with your friends to make the task more enjoyable.

Once you are settled in your loved one's home, make an effort to meet the neighbors and get out and explore your new city. 

Watching for signs of failing health and doing medical assessments helps you determine if an older loved one can safely age in place alone or if you need to move in and help.

Who overcomes by force, hath overcome but half his foe.”
John Milton

                                                     Origins of Poverty
When man came on earth he did not live in a society or hierarchy nor was he endowed with poverty. Good health, longevity, natural cheerfulness were his own even as he found himself amidst plenty. Like other species he lived or perished as the external resources permitted but he lived or perished as a group. Only when the society organised itself into a hierarchy, it was possible for one layer to exist while another persisted during times of scarcity. Organised ways of living, knowledge of all descriptions, systems created for comfort etc. interfered with the natural living of MAN in hundreds of ways. With the passing of time these stratifications of society come to stay and even create a psychology by which even the victim takes his victimization for granted. No question arises in his mind. ...

Had not the society organised itself in such a way that segments of it are protected and other segments were defenseless, MAN would have remained as MAN and would not have been bifurcated into poor and rich.

“Man was always destroying things, and beautiful things.
At the time they wouldn’t seem beautiful.
It was only afterwards that men felt pity for the things their hands had destroyed.”
