Look who's talking. Your own country keeps hacking and spying on everyone, including your close "partners". So shut your face, lady.
US presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton accuses China of hacking US computers and stealing commercial secrets and government information.

"... Brazil, India, China and South-Africa have already expressed their support for this demonopolisation initiative... "

EU should wake up too.

Microsoft's Complete Data Rape, Dump Windows Now! This list is worth sharing again after hearing people complain about Windows 10 wifi network "sharing" through Outlook, Skype, and FB.  Microsoft is demanding people rename their ssid to name_optout if the don't want Windows 10 to share their wifi passwords with all of their contacts.  What's worse is that all of your contacts will then share your password with all of their contacts and basically the whole world.  That's to be expected from an OS that can be described as "maximally evil,"

Microsoft uses Windows 10's “privacy policy” to overtly impose a “right” to look at users' files at any time. Windows 10 full disk encryption gives Microsoft a key. ... We can suppose Microsoft look at users' files for the US government on demand, though the “privacy policy” does not explicit say so. ... The unique “advertising ID” for each user enables other companies to track the browsing of each specific user. ...Windows 10 requires users to give permission for total snooping, including their files, their commands, their text input, and their voice input.

Get out of Windows now.  

You might also join the open wifi campaign.  Don't put a password on your wifi.

I've never had a password on my wifi and have never had a problem in more than a decade of use in houses and apartments.  Publishers want you to be selfish and afraid of your neighbors, but you should be more afraid of publishers than anyone who might be sitting in your bushes.

"The special unit's secretive activities descended to some particularly ‘dirty tricks’ like deploying sexual ‘honey traps’ to discredit targets, launching denial-of-service attacks to shut down internet chat rooms, pushing veiled propaganda onto social networks and warping online discourse, just to name a few..."

Western values.

My ass.
One of the many pressing stories that remains to be told from the Snowden archive is how western intelligence agencies are attempting to manipulate and control online discourse with extreme tactics of deception and reputation-destruction.

D. Cameron in Bratislava (GLOB"SEC"):
"Libyan government (also) responsible for the refugee crisis"

Well guess who killed their previous government? Your own bombs, moron.

David Amerland originally shared to Social Justice:
 
Seeing the world in a "grain of sand"

Speaking at the Brookings Institution juts this month Greece's Finance Minister Yannis Varouflakis manages to break quite a few molds. First, the ability of a finance minister to speak finance, clearly and eloquently. 

In his analysis of the global credit crunch and Greece's situation he paints a stark picture of discredited ideas and institutionalized unwillingness to move quickly because of a fear of disruption. This is an hour-long speech and he does not mince his words. 

What is important here are the narratives. In his unwillingness to accept the broadly accepted narratives on how the EU is handling its monetary crisis Varouflakis has cast himself as an outsider, a lone voice in the wilnderness that is listened to by the public and academia alike but not his peers in the EU. And therein lies the real problem. 

Without a way to actually talk and communicate he is seen as the problem, rather than actually seeing that the EU in a traditional, conservative, self-serving way has been unable to accept a publicly elected peer. Beyond anything else this is also a travesty of democratic processes where "democratically elected peers" are only acceptable when they agree with those who are already in power. 

The talk itself is riveting and provides a lot of food for thought. If you have the time to listen to it, it is definitely eye-opening for the way it reveals how the financial mechanism across Europe (and the world) is struggling to cope with change itself and uses barely-understood, antiquated mechanisms to respond to unprecedented conditions.
