Passivity is being constantly rationalized, defended. On the surface, reasons given to justify lack of commitment are logical, 'sensible', and sometimes even righteous.
Passivity has become 'calm', and so have despair, desolation and gloom.
SHARE Monday, August 17, 2020 Anti-Racist Uprising in Minneapolis Infiltrated by Extreme-Right Hooligans
The city of Minneapolis is where it all began.
A death of just one single man can, under certain dreadful circumstances, put into motion the entire avalanche of events.
But it is also where white extreme right-wing criminals, and some even say, entire regime, perpetrated the uprising, kidnapped what could have become a true revolution and began choking legitimate rebellion by a stained duvet of nihilism and confusion.

Both US and UK have destroyed so many countries in Asia, including HK. And many in these countries, including HK, that are feeling united by the British way of thinking, do things as well as analyzing and judging the world.

What you will not be told is that if you happen to live in New York or London, Paris or Sydney, Munich or Madrid, you yourself are most likely in the highest bracket of propaganda consumption in the world; that in fact, you could easily be a true propaganda junkie -- hooked on it, fully dependent on it, seeking it, even regularly demanding it, at least subconsciously.

Trump and his people are playing with fire. They are not almighty, not anymore. A few weeks more of this, and they may inherit the storm, such a terrible storm, that it could make even COVID-19 look like a breeze.

Julian Assange, an Australian computer expert, thinker and humanist, had chosen a new and mostly untested form of combat: he unleashed an entire battalion of letters and words, hundreds of thousands of documents, against the Western empire. He penetrated databases which have been storing the evidence of the most atrocious crimes the West has been committing for years and decades. Toxic secrets were exposed; truths revealed.
SHARE Tuesday, April 14, 2020 Peter Navarro: A Man Who Smears China Without Knowing Much About It
For many years now, it has been obvious that in both North America and Europe, smearing and provoking China has become an extremely lucrative business, even career.

SHARE Thursday, November 1, 2018 MEXICO -- Is The End Of 'Magic Imperialism' Approaching?
Mexico has been plundered, ravished and humiliated for many centuries, first by the Europeans (both the Spaniards and French), then by the Norteamericanos.
The vulgarity and brutality of the conquest had often been unbelievably grotesque, unreal, insane - to the point that the author decided to name it a "magical imperialism" (or call it 'magical colonialism' if you wish).

I am surprised that no one else is saying it, writing it, shouting it at each and every corner:
It is not Venezuela, Cuba, Nicaragua, and Iran that are in dire and crucial need of 'regime change'. It is the United States of America, it is the entire European Union; in fact, the entire West.
And the situation is urgent.

So, what is astrology actually saying? We will soon have some sort of 'brotherhood of men' year ahead of us; a year that could bring both peace and understanding between all the zodiac signs?
We all wish that it could be possible. But we all have doubts that this is what is actually ahead of us!
