Честитам за Ашкенази и Трпчевски, замислувам прекрасна изведба во новата, се надевам, не и накитена, сала. За жал, уште еден културен настан кој во себе ја носи идејата „не е за секого“, со самата цена на билет од 2500-3000 денари. Или во превод третина просечна плата за два билети, за мене и сопругот на пример. На вештачкиот елитизам во „државата“ му нема крај.

"It’s easy to become blind to these problems when you spend all day on the internet. You figure out workarounds, stop looking at large portions of the screen, and install an ad blocker. People who don’t grasp these tricks are dismissed as rubes. Meanwhile, the problems grow more intractable. To borrow a phrase, this situation has become dangerous and unacceptable. We’re 20+ years into the internet era, and instead of becoming simpler and more thoughtful, navigating our digital spaces has turned into an increasingly frustrating exercise. Maybe it's delusional or naively optimistic to say this, but it feels like there must be a better way." I completely agree

If I have said it once, I have said it 100 times. The America system is run by pathological liars and psychopaths.

With the final days before Christmas upon us, I thought what better time to give a few last minute gift to you ideas. Why you? As, no doubt, the recommendations would be met with a, oh, cheers, I think. So this recommendation list of books is perfect for the people that have so far resisted the urge to block me.

With all the fuckery hitting our airwaves about non-existent Russian hacking of the US election, I thought it would be perfect to highlight the main featured book, America's Deadliest Export by William Blum. https://goo.gl/GxastO

The secret to understanding US foreign policy is that there is no secret. Principally, one must come to the realisation that the United States strives to dominate the world, for which end it is prepared to use any means necessary. Once one understands that much of the apparent confusion, contradiction, and ambiguity surrounding Washington’s policies fades away. To express this striving for dominance numerically, one can consider that since the end of World War II the United States has

• endeavoured to overthrow more than 50 foreign governments, most of which were democratically elected
• grossly interfered in democratic elections in at least 30 countries
• attempted to assassinate more than 50 foreign leaders
• dropped bombs on the people of more than 30 countries
• attempted to suppress a populist or nationalist movement in 20 countries.

The impact on world consciousness in recent decades of tragedies such as in Rwanda and Darfur has been more conspicuous than the American-caused tragedies because the first two each took place in one area and within a relatively short period of time.

Living in the End Times: by Slavoj Zizek https://goo.gl/t9Hkf2

Living in the end times by Slavoj Zizek one of my favourite modern philosophers is an insightful read. Suited to anyone that thinks the Western world has indeed lost the run of itself and covers controversial topics like political correctness. There should no longer be any doubt: global capitalism is fast approaching its terminal crisis. Slavoj Zizek has identified the four horsemen of this coming apocalypse: the worldwide ecological crisis; imbalances within the economic system; the biogenetic revolution; and exploding social divisions and ruptures. But, he asks, if the end of capitalism seems to many like the end of the world, how is it possible for Western society to face up to the end times? In a major new analysis of our global situation, Slavoj Zizek argues that our collective responses to economic Armageddon correspond to the stages of grief: ideological denial, explosions of anger and attempts at bargaining, followed by depression and withdrawal. For this edition, Zizek has written a long afterword that leaves almost no subject untouched, from WikiLeaks to the nature of the Chinese Communist Party.

Austerity: The History of a Dangerous Idea by Mark Blyth https://goo.gl/CNaRRd

Many might have seen the video I posted about Global Trumpism from Mark Blyth (somewhere on my page) Another one worth viewing is the video inspired by the book. Governments today in both Europe and the United States have succeeded in casting government spending as reckless wastefulness that has made the economy worse. In contrast, they have advanced a policy of draconian budget cuts―austerity―to solve the financial crisis. We are told that we have all lived beyond our means and now need to tighten our belts. This view conveniently forgets where all that debt came from. Not from an orgy of government spending, but as the direct result of bailing out, recapitalizing, and adding liquidity to the broken banking system. Through these actions private debt was rechristened as government debt while those responsible for generating it walked away scot free, placing the blame on the state, and the burden on the taxpayer.

How Will Capitalism End?: Essays on a Failing System by Wolfgang Streeck https://goo.gl/ABc9jr

In How Will Capitalism End? the acclaimed analyst of contemporary politics and economics Wolfgang Streeck argues that capitalism is now in a critical condition. Growth is giving way to secular stagnation; inequality is leading to instability; and confidence in the capitalist money economy has all but evaporated. Capitalisms shotgun marriage with democracy since 1945 is breaking up as the regulatory institutions restraining its advance have collapsed, and after the final victory of capitalism over its enemies no political agency capable of rebuilding them is in sight. The capitalist system is stricken with at least five worsening disorders for which no cure is at hand: declining growth, oligarchy, starvation of the public sphere, corruption and international anarchy. In this arresting book Wolfgang Streeck asks if we are witnessing a long and painful period of cumulative decay: of intensifying frictions, of fragility and uncertainty, and of a steady succession of normal accidents.

Dear Friends,
Every day, 91 Americans are killed with guns.
We are turning this beautiful country into a War Zone.
Together, let's bring back America, the green land of Peace.
The death of a loved one is a hollowing experience.
After 36 years, our son Sean and I still miss him.
