>>20588 I'd say Macron and Salvini are the ones most likely to be remembered in future history books, as they are the purest examples of the new ideological poles (technocracy vs. populism) that have transcended and overriden the old left-right dichotomy.
>>20579 For Hamas and Palestinian nationalists as a whole, the point of fighting with Israel is losing and therefore gaining prestige among foreigners who value opressed brown people.
>>20609 >Macron and Salvini For political theorists/scientists sure. I'm not certain if that side of the things (the paradigm change you mentioned) goes through for the common people. Maybe they'll learn it, maybe not. On the Hungary we're almost never hear about Salvini, I guess due to the Mediterranean connections in Brazil media Italy is more prominent, but here we're very German-centric when it comes to foreign politics. And ofc now Brussels, Brussels, Brussels. Especially now with this conflict over migration.
>>20616 Traditional West European leaders still clinged on to their old conservative or social democratic identities even though their ideological distinctiveness had been dilluted into nothing. Macron did away with links to past political traditions and openly embraced technocratic centrism, giving it new strength and allowing it to develop in new directions.
I've seen a lot of maps like these popping up recently. I'm guessing these come from people who learn European history through Paradox games. This hurts my eyes. >us wanting to unite with the Swedes, let alone the Dutch and Austrians >Balkans, let alone the ENTIRE SLAVIC WORLD wanting to unite >apparently, Istanbul and much of Asia Minor is Greek, yet Königsberg and the rest of Prussia is Slavic >the Flemish are part of pan Latinism >Cornwall being that big >Finns, Estonians, and Hungarians are apparently part of the Indo-European world, but Basques aren't represented in Spain and France >neither are Caucasians represented in the Caucasus >Ossetia isn't included as part of the Iranian world >Evropa, yet the guy who made this map is likely an American who speaks English
>>20640 <The party's emblem is the whirlwind (in Arabic Zawba'a زوبعة). It was designed by the SSNP students at the American University of Beirut while the party was still clandestine and before the French authorities had uncovered it in 1936. Saadeh stated the whirlwind was found engraved on ancient Syrian artifacts, and it is known from for example Sumerian art. <Each arm symbolizes one of the four virtues of the party's mission: freedom, duty, discipline and power. <According to SSNP lore, the black color symbolizes the Dark Ages of Ottoman rule, colonialism, sectarian division, national division, and backwardness. The "Zawba'a" allegedly represents the blood of the SSNP martyrs bound together as Muslims and Christians through freedom, duty, discipline and power as a hurricane to purge the Dark Ages and spark their nation's rejuvenation and renaissance.
First thing first: That dude of the Primitive Technology channel and all his copycats have a great advantage: access to unlimited supply of bamboo. Unlimited to their objectives. That stuff is great, tuff as shit, light as feather, can be used to many purpose with little modification and not too much work.
I also read most of this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/General_Data_Protection_Regulation#Responsibility_and_accountability I think technology and it's use are running forward and lawmakers lag behind. Those who spent any time in the past two decades on the internet have a giant heap of data about them. I think Bernd posted a video about a security eggsbert, I think he works kind of a private investigator many time cooperating with officials and he said in that video anonymizing data worth nothing it can be de-anonymized with ease, and both companies and govt agencies do. Now this law was passed at 2016. This year the EU countries have to start implementing it. Who knows how long it takes until it finishes. The whole stuff is kinda vague (it can be modified when necessary tho), and I don't know for example how the EU can force a foreign company to do whatever? There are sanctions but what jurisdiction the EU has over a US based firm for example Facebook and how the EU will force the sanctions onto for example said company?
I see this is a slow day for /kc/ as well. In the meantime the traffic picks up it's usual bustling I give Bernd an update. I bought/gathered everything necessary for the project. - The foil is about 1,5-2 €. - I chose to buy a spray paint as it was just 3€. - 5L plastic barrel, 10€ - 5L steel beer keg, I think it's starts from 15€ (full with beer, if you want a similar water heating system than you have to sacrifice yourself and drink the beer firs) - cardboard (not depicted, I leave it to Bernd's imagination), cost: free? larger types come with larger household appliances, fridges, owens, washing machines..., probably could be obtained from family, friends, acquaintances, maybe from certain businesses who would just discard some, or maybe from your own workplace? hm? So the cost of this shit, all in all is 30$ (less than 10 000 HUF). It could be cheaper as the keg is usable in this form, but it has weaker water flow than the plastic barrel, which still kinda weak. But I (my family) already had that barrel so, why not.
Painted the keg. Wanted to test it out tomorrow but forget a program I have most of the day, and when I'll get back I'll have lost most of the daylight. I expect a few more sunny days, but from the middle of the next week it will most likely rain, so next weekend is probably out. Now I'm planning to put it to it's place in the morn and leave it to the family the rest and listen their report when I get back. The sun heater isn't complete, I have to check some plans first and how to do it. Oh it needs glue ofc, would be more cost (by not much tho) but I got some from wörk. If I have enough foil I will make a smaller reflector, just a cardboard bent twice so it has three faces and can be put behind the keg. Will see.
