“Let yourself be open and life will be easier. A spoon of salt in a glass of water makes the water undrinkable. A spoon of salt in a lake is almost unnoticed.” - Buddha Siddhartha Guatama Shakyamuni -

Noam Chomsky makes a good point (in various recent interviews) that historically, fascism was the state taking over all business and Trumpism is business / the corporate taking over the state – ‘isms’ are not carved in stone.

The last 3 months have witnessed a near-complete shutdown throughout the world – a shutdown economically and socially the likes of which no one has ever experienced on such a scale. A year ago the world’s concerns were the challenges of migration and a refugee crisis, the slowing down of China’s economic growth (which had... Continue Reading →

Under a Bridge – 2 January 2020

WEBOLOGY, my first website
