When Denial Meets Globalization

When I look today at Germany’s ‘Election Super Sunday’ of last weekend I see results pretty much as I expected them to turn out. The big wins of the new right wing party AfD came to no surprise. Blaming that solely on the refugee policy of German Chancellor Angela Merkel is way too short sighted.

Did it play a role? Absolutely. Yet, in my opinion, this was just the symptom of an underlying diffuse fear. The pain people, including the middle class, feel due to the transformation they are going through. Whether blue collar, white collar, or manager, they are all impacted. A transformation of their way of life, the economy, the job markets, or basically everything. A transformation caused by the ongoing globalization. The refugees are the mere trigger that made them react. The drop that spilled the cup.

It’s not just a small change. It’s an upheaval of the world as we knew it. And it’s accelerated by the rise of technology. Software is eating the world at an ever faster pace, And that puts tremendous stress on the system.

Apple: Is Europe Unfair?
by Stephan Richter - The Globalist
#taxcheating

With his comment about the EU Commission Tim Cook made clear that he cannot be trusted.

Ironically, by raising this point, CEOs like Apple’s Tim Cook unintentionally create a self-fulfilling prophecy. These companies will do everything to run away from their responsibility toward the democratic societies out of which they extract the vast plethora of their gargantuan profits.

What really annoys corporate Washington and its lobbyists is that the European Commission in Brussels evidently has too much backbone. It doesn’t just fold in front of a powerful lobby.

That makes the European capital very different from the U.S. one. Via the cancer of campaign finance, U.S. corporations and their lobbyists own Washington. They expect Brussels to fit into the same pattern.

Civil Liberties Keep Americans Safe

Politicians who want to violate civil rights to combat terror miss a vital point—if they strip them away, they’ll be equally defenseless.

No, Salafism is not a religion — Fooled by the label — IYIs should bathe in Saudi Arabia

Exactly!

Rather than another tax amnesty, we need a crackdown on corporate tax avoidance like Europe did for Apple

The Apple-Google shift
by Elliot Jay Stocks - Medium.com
#android

Elliot Jay Stocks has definitely a point.

It’s not that Apple no longer creates great products, but there’s just not that spark there anymore, is there? Remember when a new MacBook or iMac would launch? Or the iPhone? Or pretty much any new product? The buzz was palpable; the hype almost always justified. For years and years, Apple constantly innovated, whether it was with entirely new product lines or updates to existing ones, but recently everything has just felt a little… well, meh, hasn’t it?

Story
Tagline
Leaders are born, then made
Introduction

Adventurer
, Entrepreneur, Leader, Thinker

Whatever I do I believe that life at large is a beautiful and exciting adventure, worthwhile enjoying every moment of it. I believe in having a dream and making it come true. I believe that each challenge holds within opportunity and you need to be aware of it. I believe that, when you want to reach what is really possible, you have to strive for the impossible and “boldly go where no one else has gone before”. I believe in an optimistic approach to life.

Mountain climber. skydiver, scuba diver

Engaging in activities like mountain climbing, skydiving, and scuba diving, got me to leave my comfort zone and striving to reach the magic of the unknown territory. These often humbling experiences taught me how to handle the ‘black swans’, the unexpected adversities, when reaching for the stars.

***
I am always looking for new and challenging experiences and going beyond my perceived boundaries. I love to immerse myself in the fields of science and technology, the art of communication, and also exploring the latest discoveries and looking for new and innovative ways to make sense of all that. I love learning, knowing, and understanding the needs people have in different countries with different cultural backgrounds.

Having lived part of my life in different countries and being exposed to their culture rewarded me with invaluable insights into human interaction. To me, beautiful design is the communicator between technology and human beings; technology meeting people where they are. I just love the space, where technology meets communication, creating a remarkable and lasting experience.
