after the law that the romanian government passed 3 days ago (which as i said in my last post, would effectively make corruption legal (if under 45k euros, good joke) and would pardon everyone who previously got arrested for it) , thousands upon thousands of people went out in the streets to protest, making this the largest protest romania’s had since the 1989 revolution
it hasnt even been 30 years, i really hope we can stop it here and now
There’s been a shooting in a school of Monterrey, México. It is sad to think that violence has escalated to this point. People are blaming the parents, the shooter’s depression, the tv, music and video games and I just wonder, REALLY?
We live in Mexico, a country with strong “gun regularisation laws” and also one of the most corrupt places in the world, where it’s not okay to criticise the religion, but it is okay to disrespect women. It’s not okay to seek justice for justice is just a joke. We live in a country where a great part of the population thinks violence solves things. A society that mocks depression as being a “mariquita”, that glorifies violence and drug traffickers, that doesn’t accept differences and cultural diversity. That thinks impunity, corruption and bullying are okay as long as you don’t get caught. This was a time bomb about to explode, and it exploded in the worst way, harming innocents, as almost always.
It is not the depression, the tv, music, games, etc. It is the EDUCATION, from both, the system and the society. If you teach a kid that harming others is okay, then he will think it is okay.
300.000 people in Bucharest, 300.000 in the rest of Romania. WE WON. For now. The government won’t quit. They are going to legalize corruption, no doubt. But we will stand up for our rights every time. The fight goes on.
Unless you are a victim of abuse or
faint of heart
People have to realize, it’s statistically
impossible that there are no pedophile rinks in your government, and in
big banks, and in international corporations. Not to mention how well
connected to each other these institutions are. There are tens of
millions of people around those circles, around the world, and you only
need a sample of a few hundred to surely find someone who has raped
multiple minors. There are more than a few hundred people who have
hundreds of millions of dollars, and you can only imagine how much you
could get away with if you had those kinds of resources and connections.
The more powerful someone is, the easier -not harder, easier- it is for
them to get away with it. Here’s the proof of all of that.
I also wanted to highlight a specific name from this video
22:17: “the flight logs also show that Bill Clinton went to Jeffrey Epstein’s island fucking frequently.”
“Billionaire hedge-fund mogul, Jeffrey Epstein, became a free man
five years after he was first accused of sexually abusing underage
… During Epstein’s terms of house arrest, he made
several trips each month to his New York home and his private Caribbean
island. In the early stage of his sentence for soliciting prostitution
for a minor … he was allowed out to his office each day. Meanwhile
Epstein had settled more than a dozen lawsuits brought by the underage
girls who were recruited to ‘perform massages’ at his Palm Beach
mansion. Seven victims reached a last-minute deal … days before the
scheduled trial. Each received well over a million dollars, an amount
that will hardly dent Epstein’s 2 billion net worth.
Beach Police Department identified 17 local girls who had contact with
Epstein before the age of consent. The youngest was 14 and many were
younger than 16, and
that was just one of those things many homes around the world20:38he
also owned property in New York, Santafe, Paris, London, and the
The subsequent investigation by the FBI, reaching as far back as 2001, identified roughly 40 victims,
whom Epstein referred to as his ‘Yugoslavian sex slave’…
are some heavy allegations surrounding politicians and royalty who
spend their time with a convicted pedophile [Jeffry Epstein].
Brought in on the billionaire’s private jets, nicknamed by locals as
the ‘Lolita Express’, numerous girls were allegedly taken to his 78th
acre little st. James hideout in the US Virgin Islands. It is claimed
that they were made to take part in depraved orgies….
… Court papers claim visit included prominent American politicians,
powerful business executives, foreign presidents, a well-known prime
minister, and other world leaders. The flight logs also show that Bill Clinton went to Jeffrey Epstein’s
island frequently. The flight logs show that he went there 26
times in 3 years.
The most powerful people in the world are doing this
with impunity because nobody has the power to stop them, and when they
are -like Epstein- finally brought trial, he simply pays off the victims and escapes the sentencing“
The World Happiness Report 2017 ranked countries on six criteria measuring happiness: GDP per capita, life expectancy, freedom, generosity, social support and an absence of corruption in government or the business sector.
“Happy countries are the ones that have a healthy balance of prosperity, as conventionally measured, and social capital, meaning a high degree of trust in a society, low inequality and confidence in government,"Jeffrey Sachs, the director of the Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN) that published the report, told Reuters.
"What works in the Nordic countries is a sense of community and understanding in the common good,” Meik Wiking, chief executive of the Happiness Institute in Copenhagen, said.
Iceland, Switzerland and Finland were also ranked in the top five. The US was 14th on the list, while the UK came in 19th place. Sachs said the US had dropped one place due to rising inequality, distrust and corruption. He said that President Trump’s economic measures were “all aimed at increasing inequality – tax cuts at the top, throwing people off the healthcare rolls, cutting Meals on Wheels in order to raise military spending. I think everything that has been proposed goes in the wrong direction.”
Syria, Yemen, Tanzania and Burundi are the least happy of the 155 countries listed in the fifth annual report by the SDSN.
The aim of the report is to provide governments with a tool to improve overall well-being in their country. “I want governments to measure this, discuss it, analyse it and understand when they have been off on the wrong direction,” Sachs said.
