Today was a busy day with school work, elections and as a highlight for a day a 23+ km run along Varkaus.

racegamechanger America definitely has its own struggles, and areas of improvement; but we have never claimed to be a prefect nation. Despite our imperfections, we are one of the greatest nations in modern day society. Although, it may not be easy at times, we must continue press on; let accountability and innovation be our vessel to continued greatness.

God bless AMERICA,

Race Cummings

susankiwen I was a bit hesitant on writing this post, but I think it is something that needs to be said and further clarified. I must note that I do not like to label myself as anything, nor do I like to think I am "above" anybody or "outside" of society in any way out of pride and egotistical thinking. In no way do I want to make people feel any less; my page has always been used to share ideas that I hope people can further reflect upon, and perhaps even be inspired or pulled to investigate such matters themselves. I will try to keep this post short, but the con of a shorter post is the compression of points and ideas that I also find important. "In The Shadow Of The Silent Majorities" by Jean Baudrillard is arguably one of the most important books one could read in the 21st century. Baudrillard is a post-modernist philosopher, as well as a social and cultural theorist. In his book, he writes about the dynamics of society and how we have been reduced from the social to a mere ball of energy. This energy only absorbs, and thus, soaks up whatever is being presented to them. So for instance, as pictured in the diagram, we have A which is "the social." So the media could present something to B, but there is no meaningful transfer of the message because B's only function is to unconsciously absorb. Baudrillard calls this "the masses" or "the silent majority" because they lack an authentic voice. This is extremely evident in our society—from the way trends burst out of nowhere, whether in fashion, in social/political movements, in technology, in ideologies, in paradigm, etc. they explode onto the masses. We look at our historical transition to market economy—we now live in a society where goods and services are governed by a free system. There is no control over the supply and demand because no theoretical model can perfectly predict what the masses want to consume next. In a way, it's kind of like a sponge absorbing all the water in a container. So if we were to imagine the masses as the sponge, and the message as the water, eventually, there will be no more water to absorb. (More below ️ click "comment" to read all) 9min
  •   susankiwen How much or how little water there is—it is unknown. Baudrillard identifies this "behavior" by the masses as implosive because they only know how to work within themselves—they absorb all they can until there is nothing left to absorb, and move onto something else. And regarding our problem with consumption in the 21st century, like the sponge seeking water, we are always looking to consume more. However, this is not only reduced to how we consume material goods, but how we take in ideologies as well. We have all these social/political movements which—yes—may seem great because they demand and promote change, but after a while—like water—the masses are looking for a new liquid to dip into. So we think of the collective care we had for movements such as Kony 2012, the ASL ice bucket challenge, etc. working in the same manner. If we look at how photosynthesis works, the entire process is the conversion of energy (by plants) from the sun. Plants absorb what they require, and go through a process so they can eat. The difference between photosynthesis and the workings of the masses is that photosynthesis works inwards as well as outwards, whereas the masses only work inwards and produce nothing in the end. Paraphrased from Baudrillard, the masses have no identity because they are empty. Moving forward, the problem of all this is the fact that we may have killed the social as we know it. We have killed off our opportunity to be truly social beings because of the powerful mass of implosive energy that has gained dominance. The philosopher #FriedrichNietzsche also argued something similar to this. When Nietzsche writes that "God is dead", he is meaning that we have killed God in a sense that he is no longer a source for our morality. It is not to say that Nietzsche meant it in a literal sense. 4min
  •   susankiwen If anything, we have figuratively killed "God" because we no longer recognize him. It's kind of like playing the game telephone. One person starts off with a clear message, and it gets passed down the line of people. Each listener becomes an interpreter of the interpretation of the original message. In the end, we have no idea what the original message was trying to say. This is exactly the point Nietzsche was trying to get across—and the same goes for Baudrillard. And so the questions that come: Are we officially doomed? How can we bring about social change without any of this happening? Can we even progress as a society if the majority of people solely operate like the way a sponge absorbs water? How can ideas even be presented in a meaningful way?—not for the potential of being absorbed, but for the potential of being used. (To be continued in a future post or blog post). 4min

Настало жаркое время для глабальной системы финансовых институтов развития. Всемирный банк оьозначил план покончить с нищетой к 2030 году, а новый инфаструктурный фонд который создается в Китае, вызывает недоумение в Вашингтоне и рост курса доллара по всему миру. В тоже время инновации в частном секторе меняют потребности развивающихся рынков.

libertarianamerican What do you believe the troops’ response would be if they were ordered to fire at citizens, or do anything that does not preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States of America? Respond with a comment.

Международное рейтинговое агенство Fitch не стало обьяснять отсутствие публикации о рейтинговых действиях в отношении России, которая ожидалась инвесторами в пятницу. Fitch единственный из большой тройки рейтинговых агенств пока относит Россию к инвестиционной категории ВВВ- , в то время как S&P и Moodys понизили рейтинги России до мусорного уровня.

Всемирный банк о нехватке "экономически обоснованных" проектов. "Главной проблемой финансирования всей этой инфраструктуры стали точно не деньги. В мире огромное количество незадействованного капитала. У нас очень низкие процентные ставки; пенсионные и государственные фонды только и делают, что ищут способы чтобы получше использовать капитал и заставить его расти чуть быстрее.

ducatisto How do we ignore Genocide and yet follow celebrities/sports/etc. and all the nonsense in the world?
It has been 100 years since the Armenian Genocide that has been mostly ignored and denied. I have many Armenian friends as well as others who's culture has almost been erased from history.
We now live in a world connected by the internet and social media. We must use this to end the atrocities around the world. Like the Genocide currently happening in Palestine. Stop the insanity!
SILENCE IS VIOLENCE!
Speak for the weak.
Defend the defenseless.
End all wars.

vivavillanova Rifugiati e Migranti rischiano la vita attraversando il mare, in cerca di migliori condizioni di vita, di lavoro e opportunità di istruzione, sperando nella protezione europea e internazionale perché in fuga dalla guerra, dalla persecuzione e da ogni possibile minaccia alla libertà e alla vita stessa.
Vittime della tratta in mano a criminali senza scrupoli.

La strage del Canale di Sicilia evidenzia l'urgenza di una politica europea compatta, onnicomprensiva, per affrontare le cause profonde che spingono queste persone a cercare sicurezza altrove.
Servono alternative legali d'accesso credibili, e soprattutto serve che l'Europa dei popoli, unità nella diversità, risponda con forza alla violenza della politica del respingimento, dei muri e della mistificazione.

In risposta alla violenza e allo sciacallaggio, ancora più uniti e compatti, nel quotidiano, nella promozione di politica di accoglienza e di conoscenza, per facilitare un percorso di arricchimento reciproco che passa per le tradizioni, la lingua, gli usi e la religione.
