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.
"It is preoccupation with possessions, more than anything else, that prevents us from living freely and nobly" - Bertrand Russell
   Simple: minimize your possessions and be free and kind    It's just a mindset.       Refugees welcome

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

The Era of the Virus

Captain Paul Watson: "With the Era of the Virus upon us, without urgent changes to our habits and lifestyle, combined with climate change, we will see more events such as this outbreak occur. But there is hope. Everyone can play a part to solve this problem. Listen to me here explain more on this..."
