BUCKMINSTER FULLER IN 3 MINUTES – “A short review of contributions from Buckminster Fuller.”


The Real State of Emergency – “The real face of the ‘refugee friendly city’ which is Paris 2017.”

Reggie Watts – Radiohead parody – This older video somehow appeared in my timeline again this week, still great.

In Donald Trump’s America, the crackdown on protesters is the real free speech issue – “A nation has decided that preaching hatred is non-violent protected speech, but standing outside shouting, holding a sign and wearing black is an act of violence punishable by years in jail.”

BUNCH OF KUNST – “Thanks to their sweary rants about modern England, Nottingham duo Sleaford Mods have been called “The Voice of Britain” by their fans, “Britain’s angriest band” by the Guardian and “The world’s greatest rock ‘n’ roll band” by Iggy Pop. Jason Williamson, a former chicken factory worker, benefits adviser and father of two, his band mate, beatmaker Andrew Fearn, and their manager Steve Underwood, avant-garde bedroom label owner and former bus driver, have won over fans with their brutally honest lyrics and DIY ethos.”

May Day 2017 in Paris: A Report from the Streets : The Story behind the Clashes – “this time, the goal was above all to hide the police violence that was in store so that it would not be visible to the main body of the demonstration, for no one could witness so much violence without horror. According to many participants, May Day 2017 saw the most violence from the police in a very long time. The police applied it methodically, gradually using more and more serious weapons.”

Trolling for a race war: Neo-Nazis are trying to bait leftist “antifa” activists into violence — and radicalize white people – “The neofascists, however, no longer appear to see leftist disruptions as a loss. Instead, they have come to the conclusion that violence at a political gathering is far more valuable than whatever speeches the people who organized it happen to deliver.”

4chan doesn’t know what a Semiotics is mmmkay – “Wenn 4chan und seine Freunde also denken, Medien wären „cancer“ und „cringe“, weil sie von scheinbaren „Nonsense“-Symbolen berichten, die 4chan zuvor durch den Trolling-Prozess selbst (unbeabsichtigt) mit Sinn befüllten – dann sollte sich 4chan vielleicht geilere Symbole ausdenken und ein Studium der Semiotik anvisieren. Oder um es mit den wunderbaren Worten eines sehr weisen Mannes zu sagen: Don’t bullshit a bullshitter. „Kek“.”

Cults, human sacrifice and pagan sex: how folk horror is flowering again in Brexit Britain – “From Kill List to Blood on Satan’s Claw, celebrate May Day with a journey into the dark heart of the English countryside”

Political correctness: how the right invented a phantom enemy – “For 25 years, invoking this vague and ever-shifting nemesis has been a favourite tactic of the right – and Donald Trump’s victory is its greatest triumph”

Und sofort brannte das Internet – “Comicgigant Marvel setzt bei seinen Figuren auf ethnische Vielfalt, um neue Märkte zu erschliessen, und kommt damit bei seiner alten, weissen Zielgruppe in die Kritik. Doch im Grunde bleibt das Unternehmen nur seinen Wurzeln treu.”

Verein zur Erhaltung der Rechtsstaatlichkeit und der bürgerlichen Freiheiten – “Die Schweizer PR-Firma Goal AG taucht immer wieder bei den Aktivitäten des Vereins auf. Sie buchte für die Wahlkämpfe in MV und Berlin Plakatwände für den Verein und kaufte Fotos, die für die Extrablätter verwendet wurden. […] Beide Seiten äußerten sich zu den Mutmaßungen der offensichtlichen Zusammenarbeit jedoch nicht.”

April 2017 in rechten Medien: Das Braune aus dem Mainstream – “Rechte Twitterer verbreiten häufig Texte von „Welt“, „Focus“ und „Bild“. Am liebsten lassen sie sich von Kriminalitätsmeldungen Angst einjagen.”

Philosoph über Wahl in Frankreich: „Le Pen hat keine Chance“ – “Die Medien und Intellektuellen haben uns ein Narrativ auferlegt, das besagt, dass es eine Stichwahl zwischen Marine Le Pen und Emmanuel Macron geben wird. Marine Le Pen wird die Wahl nicht gewinnen. Das alles ist eine pure Mystifikation, die benutzt wird, um uns daran zu hindern, eine innovative linke Alternative auszuarbeiten.” Bisschen älteres aber sehr relevantes Interview mit Geoffroy de Lagasnerie.

donotlink.it – “Using donotlink.it instead of linking to questionable websites directly will prevent your links from improving these websites’ position in search engines. Additionally donotlink.it will remove the referer, so the linked website will not know where its visitors are coming from.”
