Snow, Death, and the Bewildered Herd

Empty your mind before reading… #FYI #OffGuardian đź’­


by Edward Curtin, from Global Research

Few people at this hour – and I refer to the time before the breaking out of this most grim war, which is coming to birth so strangely, as if it did not want to be born – few, I say, these days still enjoy that tranquility which permits one to choose the truth, to abstract one in reflection. Almost all the world is in tumult, is beside itself, and when man is beside himself he loses his most essential attribute: the possibility of meditating, or withdrawing into himself to come to terms with himself and define what it is he believes and what it is that he does not believe; what he truly esteems and what he truly detests. Being beside himself bemuses him, blinds him, forces him to act mechanically in a frenetic somnambulism.” Ortega Y Gasset – The Self and the…

Food, a life enabler, a human right and a cultural cornerstone with multiple meanings, is increasingly treated and governed as a mere commodity by the neoliberal food policies that prevail in the Western World. This is specifically the case throughout the Member States and is epitomized in the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP). The complexity of food, so relevant to any living beings and to the planet, is reduced to that of tradeable good and simplified by the price in the market, so that…

Controlling The Narrative

‘Controlling the narrative’ #FakeNews 🔎

Politically Short

In a New York Times piece published back in May of 2016 byDavid Samuels regarding former President Barack Obama’s deputy national security adviser Ben Rhodes, Americans were given a rare glimpse into the inner workings of how the past administration operated in controlling the media by creating fictitious narratives in order to propagate their agenda.

The title of the piece itself, “The Aspiring Novelist Who Became Obama’s Foreign-Policy Guru,” should have raised serious concerns given that Rhodes was the single most influential voice shaping American foreign policy aside from Obama himself. Yet, as we’ve become accustom to, it didn’t raise any red flags from the cowards within our media. As Samuel’s explains in his expose, Rhodes’ credentials consisted of having no military or diplomatic service, nor even a masters degree in international relations.

Memento Mori

‘Let Carpe Diem & Memento Mori guide your life daily.’ #BozenaSawa 💌✨ #Ubuntu404

Bozena Sawa

March is for me a month of sad memories. A funeral of a very close Friend was two days ago and my Brother and best Friend forever died 7 years ago. The list of my March losses is much longer. Thinking of all my loved ones who are no longer with us I have written this semi-poem “Memento Mori” as well as other published earlier semi-poems connected with Death, a part of Life, whether you want it or not. This semi-poem will be a part of the second book of “Life Wisdom” which will be entitled “Carpe Diem”.


Mornings are for distribution of energy for daily tasks, leaving some of it for

Evenings–relaxing & merry, to celebrate creative days with a glass of wine.

Morte can come tomorrow. So each day be ready to leave a trace, to help

Earth survive daily rape, poisoning of its people, animals…
