Shitty Narrative

   journals: most are shitty
   editors: many are shitty
   journalists: some fine humans there

We should pay more attention to journalists (and their articles) then to a shitty platform they (unfortunately have to) use.

Why are poor grown-ups in Africa and Asia full of colour (especially women) and are the rich people in Europe and N-America so colourless? Clothes, house interiors, cars are in general all colourless. I think it is a symptom of a damaged psyche.

Not per se.

A photographer friend of mine went to South Africa to shoot a series of photographs and basically Africa itself is really colourful. You have red earth with very green plants and flowers in all colours with blue and white above. The place is just more colourful then Europe.

Then again we had more colourful fashions for the rich when they were kings etc.

Off course the suit is a bit of a uniform. The car colours becoming blander over time is also a general trend. Probably somebody looked into it. When i was young we had red and green as normal colours.

Basically in our culture ´business´ is king. So they all wear business suits. Then again they have colourful toys at home.

OTOH the whole market supremacy is a mental illness but it´s not like people were more sane during the medieval feather craze.

Venezuelan Patrol Ship Sunk Itself After Ramming Polar Cruise Liner With Reinforced Hull
https://www.thedrive.com/the-war-zone/32853/this-venezuelan-patrol-ship-sunk-itself-after-ramming-a-cruise-liner-with-an-reinforced-hull

In what sounds like it could be an April Fools joke, a Venezuelan Navy offshore patrol vessel recently sank after ramming a cruise liner in the Caribbean Sea. The cruise ship, which had no passengers on board at the time and has a reinforced hull to sail through ice-filled waters, suffered only minimal damage in what the operating company, Columbia Cruise Services, has called an "act of aggression ... in international waters."

The incident occurred in the early hours of Mar. 30, 2020, but Columbia Cruise Services only released an official statement on Apr. 1. The company, which is headquartered in Germany, said the RCGS Resolute was drifting just over 13 miles off the coast of Isla La Tortuga, a Venezuelan island situated some 60 miles off the country's northern coast, when ANBV Naiguatá, also known by its hull number GC-23, approached it. The Venezuelan Navy ship ordered the cruise ship to follow it to Puerto Moreno on Isla De Margarita, located to the east, accusing it of violating the country's territorial waters.

The 403-foot-long Resolute, which is flagged in Portugal, reportedly had a gross tonnage of around 8,445 tons at the time. The  RCGS Resolute is a purpose built polar expedition vessel of the highest ice class, rated 1A Super, designed to operate in difficult ice conditions.

The Naiguatá, which is just over 262 feet long, is a Guaicamacuto class offshore patrol vessel and displaces around 1,720 tons with a full load.

"While the Master was in contact with the head office [in Germany], gun shots were fired and, shortly thereafter, the navy vessel approached the starboard side at speed with an angle of 135° and purposely collided with the RCGS Resolute," the statement continued. "The navy vessel continued to ram the starboard bow in an apparent attempt to turn the ship’s head towards Venezuelan territorial waters."

Whatever the case, the steel-hulled patrol ship suffered severe damage from repeatedly ramming the cruise ship, began to take on water, and ultimately sank. Columbia Cruise Services says Resolute remained in the area until it was clear its services were not required to help in the rescue of the 44 crew members. It then continued on, as planned, to the Port of Willemstad in Curaçao.

“There are three classes of people: those who see. Those who see when they are shown. Those who do not see.” ― Leonardo da Vinci

Insensible before the wave so soon released by callous fate. Affected most, they understand the least, and understanding, when it comes, invariably arrives too late

This is a great read and, more importantly, sheds a light on the nature of humans before they become grownups.

My understanding from research and decades of personal observations (I was in teenage friends groups as a non-grownup from 1986-2011) is that the transition from child/youth to grownup is not natural but a grownup-cultural-adaptation. After this transition almost all have cut the link to who they were as a child/youth. They have forcefully identified with grownup culture in order to belong, to be seen as a grownup, to adhere to what's expected of them. Grownup morals and group culture is much different from child/youth morals and group culture, although the transition seems to be starting ever earlier because of school results, tests, social media, commerce and fear.

I found it wonderful to find yet another piece of evidence for my understanding/theories/research/worldview. Just like the beautiful documentary youtube-film about the San people from Southern Africa did.

The real Lord of the Flies: what happened when six boys were shipwrecked for 15 months

https://www.theguardian.com/books/2020/may/09/the-real-lord-of-the-flies-what-happened-when-six-boys-were-shipwrecked-for-15-months
  by Rutger Bregman


  Final two alinea's:
It’s time we told a different kind of story. The real Lord of the Flies is a tale of friendship and loyalty; one that illustrates how much stronger we are if we can lean on each other. After my wife took Peter’s picture, he turned to a cabinet and rummaged around for a bit, then drew out a heavy stack of papers that he laid in my hands. His memoirs, he explained, written for his children and grandchildren. I looked down at the first page. “Life has taught me a great deal,” it began, “including the lesson that you should always look for what is good and positive in people.”

Dissident Circles Too Often Become Another Nerdy Hobby Group
Quote
...
It’s important to hold an acute awareness of why you got into this stuff in the first place. Whatever your individual ideological position, you got into this because you want to actually change things; to change the world, to cause a movement away from humanity’s unhealthy patterns and toward health. It’s not about petty vendettas against opposing factions or subfactions or individuals who don’t see things exactly the same way you do. And your energy expenditure should reflect this.
...
This thing is about changing the world, and changing you. That’s it. If you’re not actually, concretely doing one of those two things in any given moment while engaging in dissident circles, you’re just participating in another nerdy hobby group, with about as much consequence.
...

The fact that the media ignored it for decades and then chose to report "both sides" contributed to humanity's complete lack of action."

Legendary environmental warriors Vandana Shiva and David Suzuki, come together in this rare conversation across continents. Both are past winners of the ‘Right Livelihood Prize’ often referred to as the ‘alternative Nobel’, and have had enormous local and global impact through their work.

Now, in the middle of a global pandemic, they invite us to consider the opportunity we have to change our ways of being as a species, and how we must truly be “all in this together”.

About consistency of arithmetic symbols.
(I write % here as o/o)

o/o  = percent = per 100
o/oo = permille = per 1,000
o/ooo = permyriad = per 10,000  (perhaps drop this one)

I suggest an expansion of these symbols and a change to the permille symbol:

o/k = per 1,000
o/m = per 1,000,000 (ppm)
o/b = per 1,000,000,000 (ppb)
o/t = per 1,000,000,000,000 (ppt)

Or

A lesser alternative imo:
o/o3 = per 1,000
o/o6 = per 1,000,000
etc.
