OpEdNews Article: Article: The Physics of Spirit | Global politics | Scoop.it
This article presents a synopsis of the neurophysics of our brain-consciousness relationship. Mainstream neuroscience does not presently understand what consciousness is or how it works, and the reductionist strains of the science deny that we really "exist" as individual conscious persons. We exist. Neurophysics explains how we "work".

OpEdNews Article: Article: France Will Renege on Russian Contract, Says Pres. Francois Hollande

OpEdNews Article: Article: France Will Renege on Russian Contract, Says Pres. Francois Hollande | Global politics | Scoop.it
France joins with the nazis.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

The French President has, evidently, chosen the American President over his own country, but the penalty lawsuit from Russia will probably drag on for a long time, because Hollande used careful terminology in his renege-statement: he has "indefinitely suspended" delivery, not "cancelled" it. Consequently, the question as to precisely when France would "renege," and would consequently be in technical default on the deal, would need to be adjudicated.

Enrique Ferro's insight:

he future of both Syriza and Podemos remains to be seen. It is true that they may derive into another fiasco like most of the reformist left in Europe. But they also may develop into a Bolivarian left and bring about actual reforms, changing fossilized politics in Europe. Both Spain and Greece have a historical anti-Fascist tradition and struggle, hence the failure of nationalist and extreme-right wing parties to establish an alternative to neoliberalism (which was kicked out from Latin American Bolivarian or near-Bolivarian alternatives over ten years ago!).

Oh, yes, and I think Takis Fotopoulos unfortunately skips over the Latin American experience, which is the most exciting social and political experience in the 21st century. Take Bolivia, a country that 10 years ago was the poorest country in the Western hemisphere, barely behind Haiti, after decades of military dictatorships and then neoliberal governments, and that was ruled by the American Embassy (actually, not that different from Europe nowadays). They made their revolution, followed Chavez's lessons, changed the system and the Constitution, for the first time an indigenous government was formed in America, and now it is a prosperous country which has recovered a great deal of their national riches and keeps developping as an independent and sovereign country far from the neoliberal dogmas and oppression and US-servitude. Likewise Venezuela, Ecuador, and even Brazil and Argentina (under siege)...

'IS' supply channels through Turkey | All media content | DW.DE | 26.11.2014 | Global politics | Scoop.it
Every day, trucks laden with food, clothing, and other supplies cross the border from Turkey to Syria. It is unclear who is picking up the goods. The haulers believe most of the cargo is going to the "Islamic State" militia. Oil, weapons, and soldiers are also being smuggled over the border, and Kurdish volunteers are now patrolling the area in a bid to stem the supplies.

Libye, la nouvelle « cause sacro-sainte » de Paolo Gentiloni, par Manlio Dinucci, Tommaso di Francesco

Libye, la nouvelle « cause sacro-sainte » de Paolo Gentiloni, par Manlio Dinucci, Tommaso di Francesco | Global politics | Scoop.it
L’art de la communication politique, c’est souvent de justifier ses erreurs avec de bons sentiments. Le ministre italien des Affaires étrangères, Paolo Gentiloni —expert en communication avant d’être homme politique—, en offre un bon exemple : dans un entretien avec La Repubblica, il parvient ainsi à justifier la responsabilité italienne dans la destruction de l’État libyen, puis à s’appuyer sur ce désastre pour justifier de nouvelles opérations militaires visant à recoloniser le pays.
