The Suffocation of Democracy | by Christopher R. Browning | The New York Review of Books

Seriously, read this:

… within several decades after Trump’s presidency has ended, the looming effects of ecological disaster due to human-caused climate change—which Trump not only denies but is doing so much to accelerate—will be inescapable. Desertification of continental interiors, flooding of populous coastal areas, and increased frequency and intensity of extreme weather events, with concomitant shortages of fresh water and food, will set in motion both population flight and conflicts over scarce resources that dwarf the current fate of Central Africa and Syria. No wall will be high enough to shelter the US from these events. Trump is not Hitler and Trumpism is not Nazism, but regardless of how the Trump presidency concludes, this is a story unlikely to have a happy ending.

Russell Brand vs. Sean Hannity (and the German Equivalent)

We all should love Russell Brand for this masterpiece in TV history.

This is how it started:

This is how it continued:

And if you ask me, I stay tuned for follow-ups. 😀

One more thing … as with everything regarding the US, we have a German version of Sean Hannity as well. His name is Michel Friedman (you should really click this link, trust me, you’ll be surprised!). With this short video clip you will clearly understand what I’m talking about:

Unfortunately, Germany is missing a version of Russell Brand. Friedman is able to pollute the German world of media and TV in particular, and no one stops him.

P.S.: This post doesn’t reflect my personal opinions about the Israel/Palestine conflict. Its entire purpose is to pillory a disrespectful discussion culture. Also, I’m no sympathizing with any person involved, neither personally nor politically, apart from Russell Brand.
