@raguileramx: Modern fascism is simply the final manifestation of neoliberal capitalism. The last resort of capital once its core economic narrative, the infallibility of markets, has been thoroughly and empirically disgraced. https://t.co/lU1nNF6OsM

@daniel_romein: #mh17 Today, 8 years ago, these 4 idiots shot MH17 out of the sky. I know a lot about them, about their family, their wives, their children, and I stopped caring about "anonimize" them. They can be thankful that I don't mention their full names.

Work in progress, JIT informed. https://t.co/XN03YVsEK7

@hbhammel: Here's a zoom-in on the Neptune system with some moons and rings annotated (Triton and Proteus are outside this field). I told NASA we also see Hippocamp, but they weren't confident. As someone whose spent decades studying the Neptune system in FAR worse images, I am confident. https://t.co/XHMxV9oPFL

@JavierBlas: The size of the UK energy bail-out is off-the charts. According to @alexwickham, on top of the £130 billion to freeze household energy bills, Liz Truss is mulling another £40 billion for small business.

The ~£170 billion equals to the annual NHS budget, and it's >5% of GDP

@kamilkazani: That's what foreigners misunderstand about the WWII cult. It's not about antifascism or progressivism. It's 100% about the Russian ethnic narcissism. We saved humanity! Everyone owes us forever. Now we have a free check to do whatever forever. Whoever stands against us is Nazi https://t.co/dfzd9ePF8x

@kamilkazani: 7. Russian Federation is the extreme anomaly. It is the last European colonial empire that still continues to exist. Some of these colonies are predominantly white, others are POC-populated. All of them however, should receive a chance for independence from the metropole. The end https://t.co/DshmD0ARLn

@kamilkazani: 6. Demilitarisation of Russia requires its breakup. Should Moscow keep control over its colonies, it will endure through the hard times and then rebuild its military again. The only way to prevent it is to allow the colonies to break away from under the power of Moscow

@kamilkazani: 5. Russia is a large and strong military machine without *any* ethical or humanitarian concerns. In Syria they literally depopulated a large country. Russian public opinion ignores or endorses it. Ergo, Russia must be demilitarised to minimise the danger it poses to the world

@culturaltutor: The Ancient Greeks had two words for time:

1. Chronos = sequential, quantitative time
2. Kairos = fluctuating, qualitative time

Here's why you need to understand kairos... https://t.co/U3dQzXJrv1

@ulrichspeck: Putins first major war will be won or lost in the West. If the West thinks the costs of opposing Russia are too high, Russia will become an empire again, emboldened by Putin's first victory. In this case, other wars would follow -- soon.

@ulrichspeck: The West has all cards but refuses to play many of them. Russia is weak in every regard; its biggest asset is Western unwillingness to push back. Putin is a master in the art of feeding this unwillingness by using sticks and carrots -- that's his most important strength.

@kamilkazani: Saying all of this, I find it very important to keep a one way door to *somewhere* open for the Russian citizens who want to leave. I also think it's very important to work out a viable way of surrender with a green corridor to somewhere for the Russian soldiers in Ukraine

@kamilkazani: If you want Kremlin to go on, minimise the personal discomofort of the Russian population. If you want Kremlin to reconsider, you need to act the other way around. Even small actions like stopping tourism have huge political significance as markers of *real* attitude of Europe

@kamilkazani: To sum up, Russian public opinion is not influenced by pictures of the dead, of destroyed cities, of the cut off heads and hands. Nobody gives a fuck. They do give a fuck about personal comfort though. And the level of comfort directly correlates with the support of regime

@YorukIsik: Problem NOT solved! More plundered wheat from occupied Ukraine shipped today than legal exports: Astrakhan based CMC's Russia flag bulker Mikhail Nenashev transited Bosphorus carrying 27000t of wheat en route from occupied Sevastopol allegedly to Beirut, but perhaps to Syria. https://t.co/SSqVptcCB7

@PopovaProf: Calling the war a « senseless conflict » has become shorthand for undermining the legitimacy of Ukrainian resistance and diminishing the role of Russian imperialism. This war is chock-full of sense— national survival for Ukraine and imperial revival for Russia.

"Peaceful...countries are prone to be pillaged…Suppose we yielded everything they want to our enemies, that is no way for us to obtain peace. For those who endure one injury only encourage their enemies to commit another."

@Nrg8000: A good summary by @lionel_trolling highlighting how overtly fascist Peter Thiel, republican billionaire and founder of Palantir, is.

Palantir is a deeply frightening suite of surveillance tools, let alone in these hands.
