23-01-2015 15:47The fact is undeniable: The civilian Unitedstates atomic (i. e. nuclear + electronic) program is a bigger risk of extinction than the Russian military one. And that is all the more so if it is being assumed that intentional destruction was excluded. The accidental risk alone is unbalanced enough to make up for this odd result. The suicide belt of geological fault-line reactors that is on Unitedstates territory is at a significantly higher risk to bring about catastrophe than Moscow´s military submarine reactors, as indicated by its own fire protection regulations resp. lack thereof. The boiling point of this crisis is a fuel and/or reactor meltdown in the very backyard of Unitedstates population agglomerations, which would turn the abolition of imperialism from an external into an internal necessity, as it then were to immediate crumble the crisis denial illusion that currently regulates the Washington regime.

05-01-2015 22:34The European currency is a case of a congenital error that can only be survived with early awareness and correction. Every other culture, even the North Americans with their obscene adoration of money, has different words for cash and people. Only the Euros do not. So while everyone else sees money as some kind of tool in their hands, Europeans are seduced by language to perceive money as an equivalent of themselves, not as a dead thing with function and purpose but as a living entity with will and soul. Yet the European languages do not put up a grammatical wall between living and dead things, nor between liveable and unliveable ones. In this sense the British separate currency is European as well, because it is cherished as a matter of identity rather than an exchange technique. It would have to be advised that, when change is being made to that, it should directly go to separate words for currency name and currency unit such as grammatically appropriate for material things instead of remaining in the half-way position of different words but indifferent grammar. Money is a material thing such as mud and not a living entity such as Earth. “The Euro” is a speculation currency with no anchor in natural treasures set to be passed on to these who do inherit the outcome of it. It breathes like an exotic lilly under the cheese-cup of Unitedstates military dominance, which is another shared circumstance with its British counterpart. But with the revolutionary cause of anti-austerity accordingly accomplished, the Greek awakening seems to have gained momentum to paradoxically save the “European” currency from itself by squeezing it down to healthy dimensions before it collapses into nothingness.
