Trump Retweets Inflammatory Islamophobic Videos

The tweets came from a British far-right leader with a history of spreading hoaxes.
Kenneth Weene's insight:
This kind of impulsive and irresponsible behavior has me worried.. I know that there are people around him to protect us from Mr. Trump's starting a war or doing some other terrible things, but I am wondering if there might be a neurological problem. While I have never met the man, I am getting the same sense from him that I had years ago working in a mental hospital. We had many patients suffering from Tabes, which is the result of untreated syphilis. Am I the only one worrying about this? 

By the way, if I'm right and he is suffering from such a neurologically based illness and given the Reagan had Alzheimer's, exactly what would this say about the Republican party and what would it say about how we have been screening our political leaders? (And yeah, I have to wonder how Hillary made it through, too.) 

How should we be making sure that we have mentally healthy and decent people running the ship of state?

The Square People, Part 1

The Square People, Part 1 | Upsetment | Scoop.it
A new global force is rising from Kiev to Hanoi to push for a higher standard of living and more liberty.
Kenneth Weene's insight:

This is an important topic, but what amazes me is that this "guru" has ignored the connection between his excellent concept of "the square people" and the occupy movement in the U.S. He also ignores the long history of mass movements, for example the barricades of 1848. Technology allows people to communicate, to organize, and to take over their futures. Always for the good? For the democratic? No. However, the world of electronics does offer interesting opportunities.
