Something is brewing in France, can be a nothingburger or just a preparation for the next presidential election (they are about the half time to that, it comes in 2022). A draft of a new law package was leaked, it's aligned with the declared intention of Macron and the French government to force secularism onto the Muslim citizens of France.
It is ofc a step that has to be taken (since they have to react with something, they can't just walk by of these) after the recent attacks in France, the beheading of the teacher, and the knife attack in Nice.
The article presents basically one point of these laws, namely to teach children about the democratic values of France, and taking away the formation of the narrative from Muslim educational institutions. This means the ban of homeschooling, registration of the students of private schools, and the supervision of those schools by closing down unaccredited ones. Furthermore it might forces everyone else (native the French population) to stop homeschooling their kids. The article mentions special exceptions and not sure how prominent this kind of education in France.
The article doesn't really talk about the other parts of this proposition. But I found more in a Hungarian article.
They would have also regulated the curriculum of the higher education, they want to steer from the wind blowing from America which preach about systemic racism and Islamophobia, because it undermines the usual French view of secularism regardless of race or religion. In the end it seems they'll leave this out, however they will ban assembles intending to disturb of peace and order of the institutions. No more lynching of teachers, they wish.
A third law would introduce censorship with the ban of sharing nasheeds over social media, plus banning live broadcast/narrowcast of demonstrations (and how police beats up demonstrators). In parallel they would enable the police to use drones in the monitoring of public spaces and live feed from police bodycams (not to the public ofc).

Managed to get into Hungarian news too.

Funny how the intended replacement for islam is not christianity, or judaism, or shintoism, or even atheism but """democracy""" lel
>taking away the formation of the narrative from Muslim educational institutions
And parents. Indeed, control of the children's mind is prerogative of the democratic state. Nothing new, this would simply bring muslims in line with the rest of goyim.

The basis of their reasoning is that Christianity is already banished from the decision making process of the state (they can participate as lobbyists ofc) basically in all Christian countries. Secular state means this, the division of government and religion. Religion is a private matter not a public.
However in the countries of Islam rarely this is the case (if at all) and the immigrants bring this mentality with them. I haven't read Koran, but I would bet 10 HUF that according to Islam the state and Islam is inseparable. Luttwak in his book about coups he mentions that in Muslim countries no coupists dare to mess with the church, everyone has to declare their fidelity to Islam.
So the growing numbers of Muslims in Europe will be a problem, and now Macron and co. try to address this by educating/raising them that no church has a place in the politics of the state. It seems to me they try to create their "liberal/moderate Islam" they already preach about a few years now despite it does not exist. Islam is one, although there are groups who try to gain power through it (most notably ISIS, but as far as I know Erdogan also plays that game, just in a softer form). The weak secular Christians can't stop the influence of the Islam, every new child born, every new immigrant arriving it gets stronger and gains more playground. Those who whisper in the ears of the imams can control what the masses think, and as long as not the French government is the whisperer those masses are potential source of terrorism (although I'm not sure this is the right term to use) but more importantly they can exploit them less as voter base.
So all in all I don't think it is just a reaction to make France more safe from Islam inspired attacks, but to secure the new voters, so just daily politics as always.
Also one of the article mentions that the larger part of young Muslims does not care about the role of Islam in politics, but growing number of youth turns to radical ideas and fundamentalism.

As I promised I'll write about this book.
It's quite lengthy but you'll reach the end if you read at your own pace. Most of the book isn't dense for me, an economic layman, with the exception of the parts about trade, which left me confused. I'll write what I manage to understand.
The author wrote it to argue in historiographical debates and make some points, but I read it just to add to my historical knowledge.

I'll write in sections, at most one a day so Bernd doesn't get overwhelmed, and will try to make the sections more thematic rather than just a sythesis of each chapter, as Hitler himself suggests in Mein Kampf for how one should mentally organize knowledge. I want to write about:

-Trade and controls of foreign currency and raw materials
-Budgets and revenue
-Businessmen and workers
-Consumer goods
-The fate of different industries
-General progression from 1933 to 1939

If I give up on writing I hope at least to cover the prewar period. I also hope to write on:
-Armaments priorities until 1940

The resentment is blatant in his memoir. It's by far the most caustic and bitter source I've read, laying a barrage of insults and criticism against most of the other figures - Guedes, Magalhães Pinto (towards these two he's particularly right), Kruel, Costa e Silva, Castelo Branco - and to the Armed Forces as a whole, the pointless defense policy pursued over the decades (e.g. saying the IInd and IVth Army only exist so there are more generals to appoint) and the absence of creativity in the Ministry of War over the decades. It's also critical of the presidential political system and inflationary economy. Its polemic nature stands out from many other sources that just massage everyone's ego. In those fields it's harsher than leftist sources. When the book was published, posthumously, it was at first censored.

IIRC, the Neanderthals were the smarter and more sophisticated of the original human species. Even having softer facial features and being very inventive.

They lived peacefully until the Homo Sapiens, who were more savage and violent, invaded and raped them into extinction. The people that came out of the rapings would be the current people that inhabit earth. I think I saw that in a TV show or youtube video once

This sounds familiar.
Since it's not the actual work of Porshnev it's little short on actual data (for example up to the 6th page - where I am now at the moment - zoological data is frequently referred to, but it isn't really there to know what is that data), and more on opinions, but an interesting read nevertheless.

Read some of that google translated article but haven't reached much further. Some articles about primates and how they perceive death, some observed behaviour; posting it since they are related to the early humans and their possible cannibalistic tendencies (in the article about Porshnev's work it's part of the scavenging habits of theirs).
So while it is known that primates sometimes consume deceased adolescent specimens, but it seems it depends more on circumstances. Furthermore they differentiate between the ones belong to their own group, and outsiders. And even outsiders aren't necessarily considered as a food source (the gorillas - the examples of the second article - are largely herbivores).
And one about Neanderthals and nidal and their burials, and possible burials.

The whole thing made me think if the notion that death is sleep roots in some taboo that we shouldn't eat the dead belonged to our group. "Stop my son, don't chew on grampa's toe, he is just sleeping!"

Played some moar Atom RPG. I don't really have any coherent text drafted but some impressions, moments and such.

This game is depressing. It's like they extracted all the misery of the Soviet Union, ground it, added a hint mutants and monsters, then crammed it into one misery-sausage. Ofc there are funny lines and situations in there, always when you least expect. And you never expect them because the whole thing is so depressing.
NPC interactions are animated nicely. Heart warming meeting of father and daughter. Then they started to gossip about me.

Okay I'm reviewing Moon remix RPG now

Moon Remix RPG Adventure Remix was developed by video game industry veterans who worked on rpg games for decades, including Chrono Trigger, Final Fantasy 6 and even Super Mario RPG for the SNES. So, they knew a lot about RPGs, and I think this game is just them venting off their frustration over making those specific games throughout the years. It's actually an satire of traditional rpg games where you play as a regular npc and the hero is the actual bad guy. Your task is to save the soul of all of the animals the "hero" kills, so they get resurrected, get sent to the moon and give you love in return. Love being what gives you more stamina and health during the game.

When you get to the end of the game (you go to the moon with all the animals you rescued). You do a dance party with all of the happy animals and get a speech from one of the wizards who helped you in the entire journey of the game.

And then, something happens. I can't even express what it is, but it really will be the most shocking thing about the game. Then you're given a really clever 4th wall breaking choice at the end. You should really play the game instead of viewing a play through. You will definitely enjoy the game more.

This youtube user goes very in depth over everything about the game. Do recommend because it is so meta and it really is such a thought provoking game. It's a pretty bittersweet game.

Syria thread - Erdoğan edition Bernd 10/24/2019 (Thu) 01:43:41 [Preview] No. 30865 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Erdogan has met Putin and ironed out the partition of northeastern Syria. He gets to keep everything he conquered and the rest stays with Assad. YPG retreats from a 30km strip along the border, leaving the bulk of Kurdish-populated areas. Russo-Turkish patrols guard the safe zone. The deal shows two things:
By inviting Assad the SDF have completely relinquished their sovereignty. This was why they were so relutanct to receive aid during Olive Branch. As long as Erdogan maintains good relations with Assad and Putin, YPG will no longer bother him. If, however, relations sour then he can even expect a repeat of the 90s, when Hafez sheltered Ocalan and allowed PKK to use Syria as its base of operations.
The deal was discussed with Putin, not Assad. It's also clear who calls the shots.

For locals conquered by Peace Spring, the problem is not Turkey itself but its Syrian rebel puppets, who are thugs and mistreat the population, as has already been the case in Afrin. For the war as a whole, peace is now closer. Once Idlib is sorted out, a simple deal with Turkey can grant Assad the whole country except for al-Tanf.

>>40758 sounds conclusive to me. Also important is that such rumors began a few days before the war itself.

I've seen the videos, problem is that several of them are easily-identifiable fakes. Like I said, a video of Syrians in trucks driving was clearly not from Azerbaijan because they were driving on the wrong side of the road. Another was an "interview" with a Syrian fighter for Azerbaijan who turned out to be a Syrian-Armenian in Azeri border guard uniform. A third was a barren town implied to be in Nagorno-Karabakh, except NK is a wooded, mountainous region, it doesn't look anything like, for example, central Syria. Another problem is that those videos purporting to be evidence of Syrian mercenaries were published several days in locations before the actual Azerbaijani army actually took them over, which makes it rather unlikely that they were the ones that filmed them. Not implying anything about the Armenian military but as I pointed out above, they already got busted once trying to fake footage. Turkey also hasn't really ever been shy about deploying mercenaries in full view which makes it weird that they'd deny it this time, while Armenians have every reason to convince international observers that there are Syrian jihadis fighting for Azerbaijan. What I do buy is that Turkmen/Armenian volunteers may have traveled the border to join the fight. That is very likely considering the proximity of NK to certain regions.

I don't think the US oil industry is that important in the long term. Alternative energy sources are already seriously taking off and I think even the US is starting to realize that they don't really need to bet on oil that much anymore. Observe, for example, Saudi Arabia's politics in the past year or two. So if Venezuela gets another US-backed regime change, it will be to keep Russian/Chinese influence out.

Problem is too much misinformation in the ether. Even if something is true it can be discredited it with the flood of easily accessible bs.

Maybe they're one coup away but I'm sure they can take the hard road for the "good" cause if they really want.

Oil plays a huge part in manufacturing just about anything due to plastics too. Not just a source of energy. Even in manufacturing the stuff needed to exploit the alternative energy sources. Btw, the only real alternative is still fission.
