One graphic that shows your mom was right: the world isn't fair

Wanna hear something unfair? At least half of your total earning potential, for your whole life, was determined by a total accident when you were born. And for the vast majority of people on Earth, nothing they'll ever do will change that.

That's according to a new study by Branko Milanovic, the former lead economist at the World Bank's research division and now affiliated with the University of Maryland.

"The trouble with the world is not that people know too little, but that they know so many things that just ain’t so." Mark Twain

I was pleasantly surprised to come across a film a short while ago, (actually as the result of a passing recommendation from a complete stranger on twitter) that was for me, the first film I have watched that really attempted to delve into exploring this, as I see it, fundamental truth.

Riot Music: Insurrectionary Istanbul | Filastine Frequency

Riot Music: Insurrectionary Istanbul | Filastine Frequency | Creating Freedom | Scoop.it
Just when it seemed modern societies had put us all in a deep trance, that we were on the verge of a docile new world, a new insurrectionary meme emerged. A virus is spreading in the operating system of global capitalism, crashing systems worldwide. The strongest vectors of the virus are the cradles of civilization, Egypt and Greece. As the virus mutates, it becomes stronger and more creative.  In the last month the virus hit Turkey and Brazil. I write from Istanbul during a lull after the spiciest days.

Picture This - artist Raoul Martinez on why oil sponsorship must end | Creating Freedom | Scoop.it

The facts are plain: scientists have been warning for decades, with uncharacteristic alarm, of impending environmental catastrophe. Over the same period, academics and journalists have repeatedly exposed the active role that fossil fuel companies have played in attempting to discredit climate science and prevent any meaningful response to it. Against this backdrop I have always felt deeply uncomfortable with having my work associated with one of the world’s leading fossil fuel...

Alexander Vorobiev-Char's curator insight, February 4, 2014 2:26 AM

Умение предсказывать поведение человека, корректировать поведение в процессе публичного выступления - большое искусство артиста.

Особенно сильно это мастерство необходимо в выступлениях мастеров психологических опытов, когда сценарий программы не допускает многовариантности поведения зрителей. Некоторые артисты используют для этого "подсадки", другие приглашают на сцену зрителей с подходящим под их сценарий психотипом.
