Was ist denn das für ein Quatschkommentar? Die EU gab es bei der Gründung des Europarats noch nicht. Die EU wurde selbst erst Jahrzehnte später gegründet. Sie hat den Europarat 1949 nicht gegründet.

Das zeigt eher deine Denkmuster als ein etwaiges Fehlverhalten der EU.

Gesetze verabschieden tut der Europarat auch nicht. Das ist eine Menschenrechtsorganisation. Er hat auch viel mehr Mitgliedsstaaten als die EU.

The article is badly researched.

This “red-green” coalition banned new reactors, announced a shutdown of existing ones by 2022

The red-green coalition did not announce the 2022 date. They (Greens/SPD) announced a soft phase-out between 2015-2020 in conjunction with building renewables. This planned shift from nuclear to renewables was reverted by Merkel (CDU = conservatives) in 2010. They (CDU) changed their mind one year later in 2011 and announced the 2022 date; but without the emphasis on replacing it with renewables. This back and forth was also quite the expensive mistake by the CDU on multiple levels, because energy corporations were now entitled financial compensation for their old reactors.

There are still large areas in southern Germany where you’re not allowed to eat wild mushrooms and every boar that is hunted must be tested for radiation. That is because of the fallout from Chernobyl 38 years ago and 1400 km away.

Spain is already phasing out nuclear energy currently and Sweden wants to do it after sufficient renewables are built. Among many other states.

Nuclear is just not profitable compared to renewables. France is exporting at a loss if one would consider all associated costs (privatization of profits and socialization of losses is creating bad incentives).

Please do note the official warnings of the BFS (Federal Office for Radiation Protection). Contamination of forests with Caesium-137 is a health risk in many southern Bavarian forests. It's half-life period is 30 years. The disaster was in 1986. That means it's still roughly half of it there and the layered forest grounds preserve radiation well.

If you're a mushroom forager on vacation in southern Bavaria - just don't do it. Or at least inform yourself which types of mushrooms you shouldn't eat in particular for radiation reasons.

Germany Is Seizing Jews’ Money Again: It’s fine, they’re pro-Palestine (novaramedia.com)

A pro-Palestine Jewish activist group has had its bank account frozen in Germany for the second time in seven years, after the bank requested a full list of its members’ details in what experts believe is a breach of German law. The group suspects the move was triggered by its involvement in a forthcoming pro-Palestine...

"Germany" = a German bank
"seizing money" = temporarily frozen bank account until a legal dispute is settled

‘Free speech is a facade’: how Gaza war has deepened divisions in German arts world (www.theguardian.com)

“We have a conversation about racism that is led by the global south and people of colour from Germany, which the German state is trying to brand as antisemitic,” Younes added. “And if we present our relationship to race, racism and European genocides from a non-European or non-white perspective, we get cancelled.”

The German constitution makes no guarantee of free speech. It’s not a legally protected right there, and Germany is world infamous for not having free speech.

That's an internet meme and it is wrong. Germany ranks place 21 of 180 in the WPFI and rank 10 of 165 according to GSDI.

There is no state in the world with fully 100% free speech. Even in the USA there are limits to free speech; some are even considered criminal and some will land you in jail. What matters is what freedom of speech entails. Germany does very much have free speech - much more than the vast majority of countries on the planet. Meinungsfreiheit can be translated as freedom of opinion/expression/speech and is article 5 of our constitution as well as article 11 of the EU charta.

As a German it's fully in your right to disagree with the state and with the police (I certainly don't agree with everything that's going on). However, this comment of yours is distorting the reality too much, for my taste, to remain silent.

  • "terrifying state repression" = less public funding for some artists, more for others (not getting free money doesn't mean you're being "repressed")
  • "Berlin police has enacted checkpoints in immigrant neighbourhoods" = That did not happen. It is a myth.
  • "Politicians actively singling out activists on social media and redirecting insane amounts of hate their way." = Politicians responding in kind when you mention them in a tweet. They are humans and they are allowed to respond to you.
  • "to allow universities to exmatriculate students on behavioural grounds (aka political stances)." = Berlin trying to fix a legal loophole that prevents them from exmatriculating one student that physically assaulted a Jew for antisemitic reasons breaking his face bones. Outside of Berlin that would've been grounds for immediate exmatriculation within the existing laws.

I do agree with your general stance, but there is no need to exaggerate/distort the issues we're facing.

He drove me back into using RSS after more than a decade for staying up to date. Much better for the mental health. Thankfully, since Wordpress and also some other CMS have the RSS feature enabled by default, many websites have it even if they’re not advertising it.

Kiffen brauche ich persönlich nicht. Aber es ist gut, wenn dafür niemand mehr im Gefängnis sitzen muss. Wird langfristig hoffentlich auch die Justiz und Polizei entlasten, selbst wenn man sich jetzt aktuell noch über den neuen Verwaltungsaufwand sorgt.

Inevitable is a strong word when talking about a Russian victory. Putin has been grinding his teeth for two years in a three day operation and almost fell to a coup last year. He is also 71 years old.

Apple will require notarization for apps from third party app stores, and will disable updates for apps installed via third party app stores if staying outside EU (support.apple.com)

As far as I can tell this basically means that all apps must be approved by Apple to follow their “platform policies for security and privacy” even if publishing on a third party app store. They will also disable updating apps from third party app stores if you stay outside the EU for too long (even if you are a citizen of...

You think a multi trillion dollar company is just winging it from a legal standpoint?

Yes. Apple has tried this before with other laws and the EU forced them to comply each time; but the process takes years. One of the most known examples would be the USB plug charger in newer iPhones.

RE: Is Ernest still here?

I check in here quite often, but for now, I'm just focusing on clearing spam and keeping the instance alive. In January, I was working on the AP module, and there has been significant progress in the work, which hasn't been publicly published yet.

The EU creates an annual report where they specifically tackle this topic.

The best way to avoid it was to make a ruling that any nation under attack would have their application expedited and the full weight of NATO thrown behind them.

I like the idea. But Russia invaded Ukraine before the process even started. Just the prospect of Ukraine aligning more with the west (to an uncertain degree) in the near future was enough for Putin to start his war. There was no NATO application of any kind when Russia annexed Crimea and started the war in eastern Ukraine in 2014. There still was no formal NATO application when Russia invaded again in 2022.

2010 Ukraine stopped their accession to the NATO alliance
2013 Ukraine stopped their accession to the EU
2013/14 Euromaidan uprising
2014, February, Russia invades Ukraine (Crimea and eastern Ukraine)
2014, December, Ukraine holds referendum on joining NATO
2019, 7 February, Ukraine parliament votes to work towards joining NATO and the EU
2022, 24 February, Russia starts its full-scale invasion of Ukraine
2022, 30 September, Ukraine formally applies to join NATO

This is for the most part a very good brochure and the uninformed people here that only read a faulty summary or headline should probably read it, then make up their mind instead of being instinctively angry. Especially the part where it talks about the misconceptions with the typical „expansion comparison maps“ and what they really show was informative.

Are we reading the same link? You're doing quite some mind acrobatics here by picking various small quotes/passages from only the start of the text and putting your own spin on it. This narrative is in your head, not in the article.

I‘m fine with discussion. But I see little value in discussing a text with someone who has not read it. We don’t have to guess their intentions when they already wrote it down quite clearly. Neither do I see a reason to doubt their intentions based on timing. Antisemitism (violence against Jews) in Germany has been sharply on the rise in the last few years and it is the job of the Landeszentrale to debunk some of the myths that foster it.

The main point of the paper is to correct these five myths about Israel and that is what it does. It is very focused on this and one-sided, obviously. One might think it is bad taste to ignore current events. Maybe. But it does exactly what it says and I found it informative.

Are we supposed to learn and debate history while a people is exterminated?

Yes. That might be a good first step. It takes about one hour. There is much one can critique Israel for - let’s stick to the truths.

Kremlin runs disinformation campaign to undermine Zelensky, documents show (www.washingtonpost.com)

When news first emerged last month that Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky was preparing to fire his top military commander, Gen. Valery Zaluzhny, officials in Moscow seemed jubilant. They had been trying to orchestrate just such a split for many months, documents show....

Russian propaganda campaign against Ukraine did not just start when the latest invasion began. Why would you assume said timing to be indicative of anything?

Also, a source for your claim would be appreciated. I do not remember reading anything of the kind before the current phase of the war.

do you think russia has been boycotting zelensky even before he was presient? Why would they make such an effort

Your example is from two years after he became president. Not from the time before.

That is the relevant date, isn’t it? This news piece was written after he became president.

Mir leuchtet die Argumentation nicht ein. Das sind ja keine zufälligen randomisierten Stichproben, sondern gezielte Prüfungen bei Verdachtsfällen. Ein Anstieg der Trefferquote „trotz“ weniger Tests kann also genauso gut auf geschicktere Auswahl hindeuten und lässt eher wenig Rückschlüsse auf die allgemeine Sachlage zu.

Ähnlich wie bei Corona: Wenn man morgens die ganze Belegschaft testet, hatte man nur wenige Positive. Testet man nur noch die, die Husten, steigt die Positivrate obwohl man weniger Personen testet. Testet man nur die, die Husten und auch Fieber haben, verstärkt sich der Effekt noch weiter, usw.

Wünschenswert wäre es. Tatsächlich prüfen alle drei von dir genannten Berufsgruppen vor allem Verdachtsfälle und haben selbst dafür oft zu wenig Zeit/Personal.
