Here's a great “Russian govt” explainer article from one of my fave German journalist crews, @Krautreporter.

Google Translate did a good job, so I recommend reading it:

> Russia has become a mafia state, with a powerful boss at the top: Vladimir . Many of his decisions seem irrational, and many events in seem completely insane […] But if you understand Russia as a mafia state, then […] a lot of other things suddenly make sense.

    Trad Wife memes are always like a traditionally attractive skinny blonde woman in a white dress, in a field of flowers, holding hands with their immaculate children. The text always says something like, Why are you working a job, instead of doing your true calling? This is Godly Motherhood!

    This how I know these are made by people who have never been around children, or possibly even women, and also never had to worry about money.

    A cautionary tale.

    “The cardinal error of the Germans who opposed Nazism was their failure to unite against it. At the crest of their popular strength, in July 1932, the National Socialists had attained but 37 per cent of the vote. But the 63 per cent of the German people who expressed their opposition to Hitler were much too divided and shortsighted to combine against a common danger which they must have known would overwhelm them unless they united, however temporarily, to stamp it out.”

    —William Shirer

    Democrats united. No matter anything. Unite.

    Yeah but what does "stamp it out" mean in this context? I get that "not electing Republicans as much as possible" helps but that doesn't seem sufficient.

    "Biden is not evil. Trump is truly evil," Robert Reich says in a statement I excerpted here yesterday critiquing the "voting for the lesser of two evils" argument that justifies putting Trump back into the White House by voting third-party or refraining from voting.

    Negative responses to Reich's statement run the gamut:

    Interesting. Just read an article that included the sentence "the period March 2020 to March 2022 – the whole course of the pandemic."

    This is actually very interesting to me because a problem I've been having lately is a lot of people refer to the pandemic as being over, but I have no idea when they think the pandemic ended.

    Once again, the state of emergency associated with the pandemic is legally over, but the pandemic itself is very much still on.

    AMERICANS

    there is no shame to use all the social services you have paid with your taxes, ESPECIALLY IF YOU ARE A WHITE, MID/HIGH INCOME EARNER.

    welfare is racialized in this country to deprive all Americans of the social services WE PAY for.

    it’s imperative y’all flood social services offices because if you don't, that's why the griftocracy keeps cutting local, state & federal budgets.

    so here’s what you can do after losing your job:

    One reason I support universal benefits (even for the wealthy!) is exactly what you say in this thread: WHEN EVERYONE USES SOMETHING IT BUILDS SUPPORT FOR THAT THING.

    If rich people take transit, they will want it to be nice. If rich people want transit to be nice, it will get more funding and become nicer.

    If everyone goes to the same schools, people with power have incentives for those schools to be humane and well-funded.

    Means testing means more overhead and worse services. It means people left out by mistakes or arbitrary caps. Universal benefits FTW!

    Israeli forces killed three Israeli hostages in Gaza on Friday.

    The hostages were apparently trying to surrender while displaying a white flag. The IDF shot and killed two immediately, then hunted down and killed the third while he begged for his life in Hebrew.

    Now, we could imagine that this was a singular and unique tragedy. Maybe these soldiers were particularly murderous.

    But it seems more likely that this incident offers a window into a more general approach by the IDF to killing men in Gaza, including men who are surrendering, and that we only found out about this instance because the victims in this case happened to be Israeli hostages, prompting a public investigation.

    With the exception of some Airlines flights that appear to possibly be performing aerial surveillance over northern , the international carrier flight paths seem to be avoiding airspace.

    • Active Conflict Zone Syria has been in a state of civil war since 2011. The ongoing conflict, as well as Turkey & Russia bombing Kurds make the airspace over Syria highly dangerous and volatile.

    • Risk to Civil Aircraft: There is a high risk to civil aircraft. Syrian AD systems may misidentify aircraft, which may be targeted in error or caught in crossfire during ongoing air attacks involving Russia, Iran. Missiles may erroneously lock on to civil aircraft.

    There have been incidents where civil aircraft were caught in dangerous situations. In Feb 2020, an A320 enroute OSDI/Damascus was caught in crossfire during an attack by 4 Israeli F-16’s, forcing it to divert to a Russian controlled air base.

    Russia props up Syrian dictator. Putin, Erdogan kill Kurds.
