In the United States, even Customs and Border Protection apologizes for doing its job. CBP is supposed to “protects the public from dangerous people and materials attempting to cross the border …”

On one of the networks that wants all people, dangerous or not, to cross the southern border into the U.S., if they so desire, a CBP officer was bending over backwards to appear like a “global force for good.” (That, believe it or not, was the U.S. Navy’s motto, between 2009 and 2015!)

Tear-gassing rubble-rousing migrants, who were charging his officers and breaching the U.S.-Mexico border, was in the service of protecting … the migrants, especially The Children. Perhaps that’s in the oath of office a CBP officer takes?

Law enforcement officers entrusted with the safety of the American people struggle to articulate pride in executing their mandate. Attached to the expected self-loathing repartee is, invariably, a declaration of loyalties to The World. (Of a piece with this confused loyalty is the typical argument made by the typical TV talker: Illegal immigration must be stopped, so as to … save migrants from the journey’s depredations.)

It’s instructive to contrast the apologetics around defending the U.S. border and the American people with the absence of apologies on Israel’s borders.

In May this year, “Tens of thousands of Palestinians massed near Gaza’s border fence, threatening to ‘return’ to the lands their forefathers lost when Israel was created in 1948.” They wanted in.

Israeli soldiers responded not with tear gas, but with bullets. They killed over 60 protesters who threatened to breach the border. The number has since risen to 120.

Most of us, this writer included, would condemn such excessive force.

Yet surprisingly, the Economist—a liberal, pro-Palestinian, most excellent weekly—pondered but briefly and nonchalantly about Israel’s army having used excessive force, concluding almost callously: “Every state has a right to defend its borders.”

Come again?!

This from the very same editorialists who never tire of protesting any disruption in the holy quest of weary columns of Christ-like caravanners, planning to defy the U.S. government, by illegally entering the United States of America.

Moreover, calmly and with no histrionics does the Economist report, matter-of-fact, that “Any Palestinian, even a farmer, coming within 300 meters of the fence [with Gaza] is liable to be shot.”

And while the august magazine has declaimed dutifully that “Israel must answer for the deaths in Gaza,” its writers have also evinced a good deal of impatience with the M.O.P.E (Most Oppressed People Ever), stating: “It is time for Palestinians to take up genuine non-violence.”

In other words, grow up. The stone throwing was cute when your “Struggle” was in its infancy.

Go figure.

For the longest time, the world raged about Israel’s refusal to accept the necessity for its citizens to be blown to bits or be overrun demographically (by people who’re “only seeking a better life” for themselves and their posterity).

Israel paid no attention to the liberal lunatics aligned against its oft-excessive habit of defending its citizenry’s rights.

In fact, the Jewish State has recently gone one better. Israel has automated the process of defense, creating a set of “auto kill-zones” “by networking together remote-controlled machine guns, ground sensors, and drones along the 60-kilometer border.”

Bluntly put, Israel has deployed gizmos to Gaza; “Robo-Snipers” instead of flesh-and-blood men and women.

The nation’s “19- and 20-year-old soldiers” are still deployed to the front—but virtually. They sit at a safe distance “behind computer screens,” waiting on “approval by a commanding officer” before “pushing the kill button.”

The IDF Southern Command’s rules of engagement along the Gaza fence are, shall we say, particularly aggressive.

Oh, it’s still pro forma for the U.N. General Assembly and Security Council to open every one of their sessions with a rote condemnation of Israel’s actions on its borders and everywhere else.

But even the U.N., a cesspit of venality and stupidity, has gotten the message over the decades. And it is this:

Israel’s army is not going to put down its guns and mobilize an army of stone throwers to throw stones back at the persecuted Arabs, thereby not committing the crime of using excessive force.

Israel’s action on its borders is not unlike action taken by the U.S. Armed Forces in defense of borders not our own.

    Incomprehensible, not sure what you’re trying to say. You’re all over the place. Important too I suppose is that the the Palestinians are trying to get back and back to their stolen homeland, a crucial distinction, or maybe not, possibly hinting that those attempting to cross the US border are more indigenous to southern continental America than those defending that border. You’re attempting to conflate or perhaps to contrast, or perhaps both, it’s not clear, such complex matters that the result paralyses thought. Perhaps just an off day, yours, not mine.

    Even after re-reading, which improves it, I’m still thrown by the final paragraph: “Israel’s action on its borders is not unlike action taken by the U.S. Armed Forces in defense of borders not our own.” does this actually belong, perhaps an example might have helped? Though short it might qualify for some sort of incomprehensibility award. It’s totally opaque.

  4. Confusion in the USA and elsewhere extends from knowing how to sort professional duties, like a miltary person knowing which country he serves, to knowing how to render unto the employer what is the employer’s and to the working parent what is the working parent’s. To serve The Children well, it is important to distinguish parental duties from the duties of a foreign government. Just like to serve customers, clients or patients well, it is important to distinguish parental duties from the duties of an employee or a business owner. It is the duty of the parents of The Children, not the duty of a foreign nation, to protect them, even if that means making sure there is a father in the household and a mother raising her own children, rather than putting that work on the shoulders of low-wage daycare workers who can’t afford to cover rent on their pay or frail grandparents. Watch your kids, including those pesky teenagers, long past the pleasant, cutesy, showing-off-baby phase. Make sure your kids do not head for a dangerous border to throw rocks, or to hurl something worse, at men (or robots) with guns. If you love your kids, you watch them closely, even when it is inconvenient, making it more than mere duty. If you choose to have a lot of children, you expand your parental duties considerably. It is easier to watch one or two kids closely, making sure they don’t engage in dangerous activity than to carefully, energetically and lovingly supervise five. Don’t take on that duty, or don’t expand your parental duties beyond your capacity to handle it, unless you want to sacrifice the time and effort. They’re your kids.

    Reading Mercer’s chatterboxing reminds me of the insight of Doug Stanhope regarding Jews, as follows:

    Mostly, I hate the Jews because they’re wicked annoying. Can we agree on that? Wicked annoying! Of all the religions I’ve been around, the Jews have a tendency to throw their Judaism into whatever conversation you’re having, any topic, whatever the subject. “Oh, that’s funny, because I’m a Jew!” “Oh, I’m a typical Jewish mother!” “Did I tell you I grew up Jewish?” “My Jew family!” Jew-jew-jew-jew-jew-jew-jew-jew. Jew-jew-jew-jew-jew….

    As for the Economist: indeed it was a good magazine, but it was bought by Jews, and now it writes apologetics of the sort you quoted.
    There is no similarity between Gaza and Mexico border. If the US would lock a Native American reservation and shoot the Red Indians trying to escape, then it will be a similar case.

That Unz would publish such crap only proves what some of us have known for some time- that outlets such as these and others of similar ilk- WND comes to mind, provides platform for wannabe pseudo intellectuals who cannot get work in proper journals and newspapers because they cannot write.
    I think what Mercer was trying to pinpoint was the alleged hypocrisy of liberals who advocate liberal immigration in America and yet stay silent or actively support another country- in this case Israel , who gun down people trying to cross its border illegally. For her sins Mercer ends up becoming dog’s breakfast for the army of anti semites who post in this forum. It would be funny if it wasn’t so sad.

    Do you deny that Israel guards a concentration camp ?
    Can indeed not see much difference between jews in the Warsaw ghetto and Palestinians in Gaza.
    Let me remind you of what jew Samuel wrote, he was the first British High Commissioner of the Mandate Palestine, in his memoirs:
    The Rt. Hon. Viscount Samuel. P.C., G.C.B., G.B.E., Hon. D.C.L. (Oxford). Hon. Fellow of Balliol College, Oxford, ‘Memoirs’, London, 1945
    something like ‘it would be a great pity if jews had from hundreds of years of suppression in ghetto’s had just learned to suppress others’.
    If necessary, must look on a usb stick, can give you the exact quote with page numbers.
    Then I can also quote Samuel on Weizmann, who already around 1920 said ‘that he hoped that Palestine would become as jewish as GB British’.

  21. The Economist is a Rothschild owned magazine and the Zionist elites are sowing trouble in every country to promote their satanic NWO and so they say one thing and do another in a perpetual disinformation ie LIES campaign to do what ever it takes to wreck countries and instigate wars and killing as in Palestine, Iraq, Syria, Libya, Ukraine etc., where ever wars are going on the Zionists are that much closer to their satanic Zionist NWO.

    The Zionists want a satanic NWO and to get there, they want no borders anywhere in their Zionist controlled planet and so the Zionist drive for open borders will never end until the people of the world wake up and smell the coffee.

    Read The Controversy of Zion by Douglas Reed and The Committee of 300 by Dr. John Coleman and The Protocols of Zion, to see the satanic Zionist playbook.

    Very true.

    There is no similarity between Gaza and Mexico border.

    Except one, Mr. Shamir.

    And that is in both cases, the strife and tragedies are a direct consequence of Zionist, Jewish-supremacists. Sure, there are Gentiles who also want the cheap Mexican labor, but without the relentless screeching from the Jewish media, and bags of shekels from Adelson to the GOP, they would be marginalized as the vile traitors they are.

    I don’t have to explain why the misery in Gaza is a direct consequence of Zionist, Jewish-supremacists, because that’s obvious. But so too it’s quite obvious to every thinking person that the demand that the West open its borders to throngs of non-Westerners, is due directly to the intrigues and treachery of Zionist Jewish supremacist$ as well.

    A perfect case in point is Sheldon Adelson (on the ‘right’) or Michael Bloomberg (on the left), and all the Zionist Jewish supremacists in between. If I’m not mistaken, 99% (maybe 98.99%) of these people all demand Jewish supremacism for Israel, and massive immigration for Europe and N. America.

    It’s the double whammy of all zio-rats. Triumphant racial hegemony for themselves!, and concurrently, humiliating abasement and replacement for the Christian goyim of Europe and N. America / Australia, etc..

    The hypocrisy of netherworld hatred – on acid.

    So I must say that at least it’s a bit refreshing to read a Zionist Jew like Ilana, who obviously feels the Jewish supremacists of Israel are somehow justified in their genocide and rapine, but who doesn’t also, simultaneously condemn every Western nation on the planet for attempting to resist the Jewish supremacist demand that they accept their role as fellow Palestinians whose existence is inconvenient to ‘The Jews”, and then ‘go gently into that goodnight’ and commit collective ethno/national-suicide.

    She’s more in the spirit of Jewish outliers like Stephan Miller, who’s just as rabid in his Zionist Jewish supremacism for Israel, but then uniquely among Jews, doesn’t also (seemingly) harbor a psychotic and genocidal hatred for white Gentiles.

    At least in this way, Jews like Miller and Mercer are not guilty of that most egregious and nauseating repulsiveness of so many of their tribe : the rancid, in-your-face hypocrisy and degenerate double standard – that they’re so understandably reviled for.

    I think there were many survivors of the Warsaw Ghetto uprising. A quick check on Wikipedia says that close to 60,000 residents of the area were deported after the month long street battles. The number of survivors of the whole “holocaust” is somewhat extraordinary, considering that the Nazis have been called so “efficient” at committing murder. Many of these survivors are so long-lived that recently Germany sent another $88 million to them, on top of the billions already paid out. This for incidents that last took place over 70 years ago.

    As in when one species encroaches on what another species imagines to be “its territory” ? Mother nature has a foolproof system for arbitrating these disputes, its called evolution, The proof of ones ownership is if ones control it.

    You see, the concepts of property rights you vaguely pretend to understand about contractual etc types of ownership; they come after not before actual ownership by force, your so called rights ‘basic human’ and otherwise, are mere guidelines the actual owners by force set up to optimize production of territory they own- you see being actual owners they can do that,
    Where as if your system actually were somehow in never never land to come into use then i would simply say i own your house and wife, because according to my system I do. Do you see the problem? Of courese you dont youre a moron.

    Now that said, if we let some fast talking jews, (present company excluded baby) to fast talk us into letting jews move in a majority of non whites to physically hold the land while some minority of jews get to make up the rules of its use, then yeah we whites lost the evolutionary game fair and square to a coalition of fast talking jews and non white proxies, and we will have to assume (or rather you all will since we wont be here anymore) that mother nature has a perfect plan – though i wouldn’t get my hopes up if i were a non jew brown that it would include me.

    However as grim as it looks I wouldn’t personally bet against the saxon celt norse or other european races, the powers that seem so great against us currently are 99% bulklshit as i8n fast talk and no real power and while euros may indeed have a genetic disposition to live in the thought world all animals will when cornered fight and we are only now beginning to feel the reality of our situation and I bet pretty soon we will show signs that we are not having it, perhaps the past decade or two we have already shown signs in growing intensity.
    democracy greatest lie is that no one can be held liable and therefore one must just accept things as they are because nothing can be done and that one is at least as much to blame as ones leaders.But concurrently is the fact that ones own individual region of authority runs so much better on such less resource that one just knows they are lying cheating stealing and just pretending nothing can be done. trump Le Pen Orban, Bolsonaro, etc is not the rough beast he is merely john the baptist laying the axe at the root.

    By your words “still not as Fascist as Israel” did you mean Zionism seeks to establish fascist parity equivalent to that in Israel in the leadership of every nation state? That would mean you see Israel as the model of fascism and as the center for developing Zionism into nations of the world?

    Self organized, uncontrolled, free thinking, people-power is a threat capable to destroy the global empires that Washington maintains for Israel by propaganda and obedience training.
    The American market place and the fine warriors Americans make are both essential resources for the advancement of Zionism. Therefore no American should be permitted access to collective togetherness expressed by those from the South because togetherness realigns political power from top down to bottom up..

    Many of the posters on UNZ don’t have a problem with Semites.
    Why not?
    Many commenters on UNZ understand that the Zionists/Jews have appropriated the ‘semite’ definition for themselves, trying to exclude the fact that it is the ARABS that live in the middle east that are the semites!
    Most Jews are NOT semites.

    The 1990 edition of the paperback Oxford dictionary defined a ‘semite’ as Arabs from Phoenician and/or Assyrian language and descent. No mention of Jews.

    The online definition is this:
    “A member of any of the peoples who speak or spoke a Semitic language, including in particular the Jews and Arabs.”

    The billionaire Sackler family, which has been blamed for fuelling the U.S. opioid addiction epidemic, owns a second drugmaker that churns out millions of addictive painkiller pills every year.

    The Sacklers are best known as the owners of Purdue Pharma, the privately held drugmaker that makes the now infamous opioid painkiller OxyContin, which has been described as “heroin in a pill.”

    “Jewish State”. It is a Zionist demi-state:

    more than 2/3 of the world’s Jews (including one named Issacsohn-alias-Mercer) do not even bother to live in Zionist-0ccupied Palestine, and

    Israhell is a gross parasite, entirely dependent on Zion-controlled America for economic, political and military support.

    without which it would dry up and blow away almost immediately.

    which would be tragic, because w/o Israhell I fear the usual “6 million” Jews will have no place to Exodus (for the 399th time) once a a race-realist regime comes to power in America.

    The so-called Jewish Nation is in trouble. They had to negotiate ceasefires on the northern and southern borders. They are at the mercy of rockets from Lebanon that could make all their shipping ports and airports unusable in the even of the Lebanese choosing to do so. It would no longer be possible to rescue them as happened in 1978.

    The leaders of the “Jewish Nation” – who reside in more agreeable places like New York, London and Paris – have been casting around for a new abode to call the “Promised Land”. For those who take archaeology seriously, the real “Promised Land” is in Yemen.

    I think – obviously I have no evidence – that Crimea was the planned destination. Certainly, it would have been relatively easy to ethnic-cleanse the place and push its inhabitants over the borders to Russia and Ukraine – if Russia had allowed the place to be taken over after the putsch in Kiev. The fact that all the MSM is gung ho about claiming that Russia “annexed Crimea” is proof enough IMHO.

    Apparently, US navy personnel were going around assigning different buildings in Sevastopol to different units – before they had to flee.

    Shooting Palestinians in Gaza may not have made the front pages of media in the West, but it has had a large effect elsewhere. The “6 million Jews” story is no longer being plugged by the usual suspects – as there is push back against it. It does not work so well any longer.

    It’s the high content of oxycodone that makes OxyContin popular on the street. People who abuse the drug crush the tablet and swallow or snort it, or dilute it in water and inject it. This destroys the time-release mechanism so that the user gets the full effects of the narcotic.

    Translation for Rurik: “You tell the truth in such a straightforward manner that I cannot refute your assertions. Therefore, I hate you.” This is the default response by Tyrion and most of his ethnic brothers when levelheaded, accurate criticism is brought to bear on the nefarious, predatory, parasitic behavior of many of their organizations, though certainly not of all individuals in said tribe. The corollary, of course, is that the hatred is routinely followed by a full-on organized campaign to smear, malign, and destroy the career and life of those who would dare to express criticism of Jewish organizations or powerful individuals. Yeah, Gilad Atzmon had it right when he stated that Jewish power is undeniable in that it has quashed the discussion of Jewish power and the Jewish Question in modern western society. Untold thousand, hundreds of thousands, millions, TENS OF MILLIONS are aware of this, but they dare not speak out lest they become the recipients of this evil treatment. So Tyrion and his tribe need to be clear about an important fact and its predicated question: gentiles do not have some kind of mutant gene that makes them antisemitic; what you call antisemitism is and always has been reactionary in nature, a reasonable response to the destructive actions of your tribe towards gentile societies and cultures throughout the ages. The predicated question, of course, is “When are you going to learn?”. Some will argue that this is a leopard/spots analogy.

  65. “In his Commentarii de Bello Gallico, Caesar describes how two tribes, the Tencteri and Usipetes, had been driven from their traditional lands by the Germanic Suebi, whose military dominance had led to constant warfare and neglect of agriculture. This original homeland of the two tribes is not clear but by the time of Caesar the Suebi had settled in a very large wooded area to the east of the Ubii, who at this time lived on the east bank of the Rhine, on the opposite bank from where Cologne is today. It has been argued that the Tencteri and Usipetes specifically may have come from the area of the Weser river to the east of the Sigambri, because it is near to where the two tribes appeared on the Rhine, and Caesar reports the Suevi in this area. It would also explain the apparently friendly relations of the Tencteri and Usipetes with the Sigambri, who might have been their traditional neighbours.[5] (In later Roman times this area inhabited by Caesar’s Suebi was inhabited by the Chatti.[6])

    [MORE]

    In the winter 55 BC, having failed to find new lands elsewhere in Germania, they came to the mouth of the Rhine, into the territory of the Menapii, a Belgic tribe which had land on both sides of the river and had not yet submitted to Roman rule. Alarmed by the scale of the incursion, the Menapii had withdrawn from their territories east of the Rhine and successfully resisted the Germani bid to cross it for some time. The Germani feigned a retreat, allowing the Menapii to return to their territories east of the Rhine. Their cavalry then returned and made a surprise night attack. They crossed the river and seized Menapian boats, occupied Menapian villages and towns, and spent the rest of the winter living on Menapian provisions.

    Caesar, fearing how the Gauls on the left bank might react, hurried to deal with this threat to his command of the region. He discovered that a number of Gaulish tribes had attempted to pay these Germani generously to leave, but the Tencteri and Usipetes had ranged further, coming to the frontiers of the Condrusi and Eburones, who were both under the protection of the Treveri to their south. Caesar convened a meeting of the Gaulish chiefs, and, pretending he did not know of their attempts at bribery, demanded cavalry and provisions for war against the Tencteri and Usipetes.

    The Tencteri and Usipetes sent ambassadors to Caesar as he advanced. While they boasted of their military strength, claiming that they could defeat anyone but the Suebi, they offered an alliance, requesting that Caesar assign them land. Caesar refused any alliance so long as the Tencteri and Usipetes remained in Gaul. He proposed settling them in the territory of the Ubii, another Germanic tribe who had sought his help against the aggression of the Suebi, there being no land available in Gaul.

    The ambassadors requested a truce of three days, during which time neither side would advance towards the other, and they took Caesar’s counter-proposal to their leaders for consideration. But Caesar would not accept this, believing the Germani were buying time for the return of their cavalry, who had crossed the Meuse to plunder the Ambivariti a few days previously. As Caesar continued to advance, further ambassadors requested a three-day truce for them to negotiate with the Ubii about his settlement proposal, but Caesar refused for the same reason. He offered a single day, during which he would advance no more than four miles, and ordered his officers to act defensively and not to provoke battle.

    The Germanic cavalry, although outnumbered by Caesar’s Gallic horsemen, made the first attack, forcing the Romans to retreat. Caesar describes a characteristic battle-tactic they used, where a horsemen would leap down to their feet and stab enemy horses in the belly. Accusing them of violating the truce, Caesar refused to accept any more ambassadors, arresting some who came requesting a further truce, and led his full force against the Germanic camp. The Usipetes and Tencteri were thrown into disarray and forced to flee, pursued by Caesar’s cavalry, to the confluence of the Rhine and Meuse. Many were killed attempting to cross the rivers.[7][8] They found refuge on the other side of the Rhine amongst the Sicambri.”

    Looks like there was quiet at the border for a very long time after this . Something to ponder about regarding aggressive migrants.

They were prescribed large amounts of a drug that was of a strength that should be limited to terminal cancer and palliative care patients, mostly for routine, low level pain. The oxycontin was extremely addictive, and the long-term prescriptions, suddenly cut off when government and regulatory scrutiny was put on the company, sent many new addicts to the streets.

    Holding the trial in the wrong district worked and Sheinbaum and the blacks triumphed once again. It was Sheinbaum Marxist married into the Warner studio fortune who arranged the Rodney King riots.

    To the extent that there is any truth whatsoever in your claim, what you describe above is simply medical malpractice committed by physicians. OxyContin was never indicated for “low level pain” but for “moderate to severe pain” as written on the label. Further, the purpose of OxyContin was to replace short acting versions of oxycodone such as Percocet (oxy + apap) to minimize the addictive nature of the four hour opiate roller coaster with a twelve hour cycle. But in any case, humans have a several thousand year old relationship with opiates and nobody with a lick of sense ever thought that there was a non-addictive opiate.

    You refuse to read the article and educate yourself. Is that your response? It seems so. For if you read the article I provided, you would see how Purdue Pharma used financial benefits to manipulate key doctors into lobbying the regulators against the previously strict limitations on using a drug of such strength. I understand that in the rest of the world it is still strictly regulated for terminal cancer and palliative care patients. In addition, the article goes into how Purdue Pharma used a marketing system with large incentives for doctors to prescribe in large quantities.

    Guys who have got fat often kid themselves though. Even Marlon Brando, who in his latter years wrote in his memoirs he had rejected Sophia Loren for her bad breath was probably kidding himself. She said had stroked her unbidden, and she blew in his face as a rebuke.

    Svigor made at comment 1 what seemed to be an obscurely worded menace against the author of the post, Plato’s Dream said something light related to it at 9, and you came in at 72 and started expounding on your favourite subject: how you would reject a woman’s hypothetical sexual advances because of your high standards. It seems to me you went through the comments to find something as a way in with that. I was merely suggesting that looking at what you and others’ here are saying, made me think of how the inflamation from an excess of bodyfat, especially with physical inactivity, can put one into a depressed, antisocial and paranoid frame of mind. Poor dental hygiene is another route to immune system activation crossing the blood brain barrier. I was hinting that you should go and get some exercise in the fresh air.

    It sounds like the Times, once the voice of the staid Brit. establishment, I hear, I wasn’t reading it then (have read quotes), but one of our now dead English-language papers used to reprint parts of it as it is now as a supplement once a week, I read that day’s issue most of the time. Definite gutter tabloid posing as what it once was.

    I know that was thanks to Rupert Murdoch, have read of the fight over his takeover.

    Have you read much of Doris Lessing?

    I think the Nobel Prize Committee had little idea of her writing, and she, to her glory, scorned them.

    If you have not, I strongly recommend reading The Good Terrorist , it includes brief but wonderful satire of The Grauniad, as The Defender. From reading it, it sounds much the same then (mid-1970s setting) as now. I like everything I have read of hers (which is almost all), but much would not be to all tastes.

    Do you think the universal agreement on your ugliness might not having something to do with your ideas and behaviour?

    The only thing I’m torn on is that are people able to destroy sensible ideas by pretending it is linked to you because your ideology is so ugly or it is just that you are so ugly as individuals? Or both? What do you guys think?

    If you don’t mind, have you read the article cited by commenter Frankie P? And if so, do you dispute any of it?

    I don’t recall if I’ve read that specific article but I’m very well aware of the history of oxycodone, opiates generally, and the marketing done by Purdue. The accusations against Purdue can be made against every drug manufacturer. Some are FAR worse. Look at the “off-label” promotion of gabapentin – a drug carrying a black box warning of suicidality – for starters. Gabapentin, by the way, is frequently co-prescribed with opiates providing patients both the motivation and the means to end themselves.

    What set off the “epidemic” was our government, not a drug factory. Our government told every licensed doctor that pain was the new “fifth vital sign” and demanded it be treated as such. Doctors, in business today solely for a buck and only focused on avoiding litigation due to insurance costs, massively over-prescribed opiates for conditions their elders would have prescribed aspirin or apap. The “epidemic” in medicine is foreign doctors, incompetent doctors from affirmative action and third rate med schools, government bureaucrats, and whinier patients demanding cessation of all normal human aches and pains.

    Is it coincidence that this “epidemic” is coincidental with the explosion in “disability” welfare? Or coincidental with the factors in the preceding paragraph? Or coincidental with the new Mexican heroin we see flooding across our border? Or the Chinese fentanyl used to ‘enhance’ that heroin?

    Blaming Purdue is the simplistic thinking of a child. It serves only to excuse culpability of bad doctors and incompetent government combined with weak patients and a destroyed economy.

    Like most prestige project buildings in Late Antiquity and early Medieval periods, it employed a fair number of slaves (see for instance the Hague Sophia which was built famously by 10,000 slaves) – fairly common honestly.

    We know very little about the lives of common people in history, hardly anybody who decribed things in the past was interested in common people.
    Good historians mention this not knowing often.
    What is mentioned, but also not always, is who was given building projects by rulers.
    Of quite a few French cathedrals the name of the builder(s) is not known.

    Architcts, builders, travelled far more than most people now realise, but also craftsmen did, not always of their free will.
    So it is not at all easy to be sure who to praise for for example the Alhambra near Seville or the Mosque of Cordoba.

    Those who want to see Muslims in present Spain as brutal stupid nomads who themselves were unable to do anything, of course object to Muslim architects, scientists, translators, philosophers, etc.
    These problems are not unique.

    The Borubudur in present Indonesia, when it was discovered, great problem for the Dutch colonialists, the coolies could not have built it.
    The impressive ruins in Zimbabwe, still an enigma, caused the Boers great problems, the locals building like that, impossible.
    So the explanation was found that the Egyptian piramid builders had been there.
    Angkor Wat, in Vietnam, even what it was, we hardly know.

    Anyone interested in ancient ingenuity I can recommend

    Anyone ever being in France, Brittanny, I can recommend Barnenez and Gravinis, older than the piramids.

    “What are the repercussions of the American draft resolution that condemns Hamas?”
    On December 5, the official Turkish Anadolu News Agency carried the following report from Gaza, by its correspondent Nour Abu Aisha: “Tomorrow on Thursday, the United Nations General Assembly will be voting on a draft resolution presented by the United State, condemning Hamas and its launching of missiles from the Gaza Strip. The draft resolution, a copy of which was checked by Anadolu, calls for the condemnation of Hamas and its launching of missiles from Gaza, the halting of its provocative acts and its rejection of violence. According to political analysts, if the draft resolution is ratified, it will affect all the frameworks and structures of Palestinian national action, in a way that goes against the principles of International Law that legalized “resistance against the occupation in all its forms.” In addition, it will be the first resolution condemning Hamas at the UN General Assembly.

    “Legal experts and political analysts who spoke to Anadolu believed that in case the resolution is ratified, it will reflect the international mood towards the Palestinian resistance, which could in turn reflect negatively on the states supporting it. Hence, legal researcher Mohammad Siam said that the US draft resolution to condemn Hamas violated one of the rights guaranteed by International Law, which is the right to self-defense, self-determination and resistance of the occupation using armed and peaceful popular means. And in case it is ratified, Siam believed that the decision will act as a prelude for “undermining all the resistance movements on Palestinian soil…” He continued to Anadolu: “The American draft resolution constitutes an attempt to thwart the last Palestinian effort to extract the rights through resistance, and it will not end with Hamas’s condemnation…”

    “He also indicated that if the draft resolution is ratified, it will mark the beginning of the “settlement of the Palestinian rights, and the exertion of pressures on the factions to get them to stop their acts of resistance, which are guaranteed by International Law, while disregarding the Israeli crimes committed in the Palestinian territories…” As for writer and political analyst Naji Zaza, he believed in statements to Anadolu that the American draft resolution “will not affect Hamas alone. It will affect all forms of Palestinian resistance and the militant heritage of the Palestinian people, whether the armed or the peaceful popular one…” He added: “In the document released in May 2017, Hamas identified itself as a national liberation movement.”

    “[He continued:] “So, it is relying on all the human and legal heritage supporting the Palestinian people’s right to resist the occupation.” And Palestine is still under Israeli occupation with the United Nations’ recognition, knowing that resolutions were issued by the Security Council in support of the people’s right to determine their fate…” For his part, writer and political analyst Hussam ad-Dajni said that in case the American draft resolution is ratified at the UN General Assembly, it will not be binding, but will carry… “moral repercussions, reflecting the international mood towards the resistance of our people…” He added: “In order to face that draft resolution, Hamas must coordinate with the Palestinian diplomacy and use its popular and international relations, especially with Russia, the Arab and Islamic states, and some Latin American countries, so that it can thwart it…””
