WAS SKIMMING NEWSPAPERS

FOLLOWED BY ANGRY ONLINE COMMENTS - from The Old Mountain Goat?

https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/europe/in-french-migrant-camps-volunteers-provide-what-governments-will-not/2016/05/19/c7e3c6b8-3129-4407-9bff-aa3bd964524e_story.html?wpmm=1&wpisrc=nl_ww

CALAIS, France— In late August, Clare Moseley was skimming newspapers online when she saw an article in the Daily Mail on refugees drowning in the Mediterranean.

It was followed by angry online comments calling for the British military to eradicate the thousands of migrants still stranded in northern France and seeking to cross the English Channel. In tears, the 46-year-old former Deloitte accountant did more than post a reply: She moved to Calais, leaving behind her home, her career and her husband in Liverpool, England.

“It was a complete knee-jerk reaction to an emergency, but I just felt like it was massively, massively needed, and so I did it,” said Moseley.
Anti-migrant sentiment has led British volunteers to help in camps in northern France.

KRISTALLNACHT, THE NIGHT of HORROR

"Provocative Analogy, It Was Not A Lonely One" - The Old Mountain Goat know the "CYCLES" of "HISTORY"!

http://www.nytimes.com/2016/05/29/world/europe/rise-of-donald-trump-tracks-growing-debate-over-global-fascism.html?emc=edit_ae_20160528&nl=todaysheadlines-asia&nlid=43648817&_r=0

WASHINGTON — "...The comparison was inflammatory, to say the least. Former Gov. William F. Weld of Massachusetts equated Donald J. Trump’s immigration plan with Kristallnacht, the night of horror in 1938 when rampaging Nazis smashed Jewish homes and businesses in Germany and killed scores of Jews.

But if it was a provocative analogy, it was not a lonely one. Mr. Trump’s campaign has engendered impassioned debate about the nature of his appeal and warnings from critics on the left and the right about the potential rise of fascism in the United States. More strident opponents have likened Mr. Trump to Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini..."

"...Either way, it has found pockets of support on both sides of the Atlantic. Lilia Shevtsova, a political analyst in Moscow, said neo-fascism in liberal societies in the West stems from crisis or dysfunction while in illiberal countries like Russia and Turkey it reflects an attempt to fill the void left by the failure of Western notions to catch on.

The problem, she added, is that “the Western political leadership at the moment is too weak to fight the tide.”

PRINCIPLED PLURALISM:

Coexisting Society where Members are a Minority, but "WORTHWHILE" - The Old Mountain Goat AGREES about "THIS"; the "EARTH PLANET'S HUMANITY" has a long way to go "TO FIND A BETTER WORLD"!

https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/the-left-won-the-culture-war-will-they-be-merciful/2016/05/27/5c5014c2-2024-11e6-8690-f14ca9de2972_story.html?wpmm=1&wpisrc=nl_opinions

"...Ideological lines in U.S. politics are shifting and blurring rapidly: The rise of Donald Trump, the popularity of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and the resurgence of libertarianism prove at least that much. It’s reasonable to assume that religious conservatives, too, are rethinking their role in American society and politics.

That rethinking probably began in earnest with Richard John Neuhaus’s book “The Naked Public Square” in 1984. Neuhaus, acknowledging pluralism as a hard reality rather than condemning it as a temporary deviation, nonetheless sharply criticized the idea that the public sphere can have nothing to do with religiously informed principles and arguments. In 1990, he founded the influential magazine First Things, in which Catholic, Protestant and Jewish intellectuals reflect on the role of religion in America’s rapidly fragmenting society.

More recently, Notre Dame historian George Marsden — a self-described “Augustinian Christian” and so something close to an evangelical, whatever that still means — has argued in his book “The Twilight of the American Enlightenment” that religious traditionalists and secularist liberals can avoid a great deal of acrimony by defenestrating the midcentury idea of a “neutral” public sphere and instead adopting what he and others have termed “principled pluralism.” More recently still, in his new book “The Fractured Republic,” the scholar and journalist Yuval Levin, a Jewish social conservative, has counseled both religious conservatives and secularist liberals that they can repair our dysfunctional politics by comprehending the implications of this one essential truth: that American society is no longer the consolidated unit it once was but a diffuse assortment of subcultures..."

SANDERS WINS - HANDS DOWN

AND, SO DO I - from The Old Mountain Goat!

"...Mainstream U.S. economists have criticized Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders’s proposals as unworkable, but these economists betray the status quo bias of their economic models and professional experience. It’s been decades since the United States had a progressive economic strategy, and mainstream economists have forgotten what one can deliver. In fact, Sanders’s recipes are supported by overwhelming evidence — notably from countries that already follow the policies he advocates. On health care, growth and income inequality, Sanders wins the policy debate hands down..."

A METALLIC CLUNK!

ANOTHER, OF NATURE'S CREATURES, CAN HELP US - from The Old Mountain Goat!

http://www.nytimes.com/2016/05/29/world/europe/drones-eagles.html?emc=edit_ee_20160529&nl=todaysheadlines-europe&nlid=43648817&_r=0

KATWIJK, the Netherlands — Its wings beating against a gathering breeze, the eagle moves gracefully through a cloudy sky, then swoops, talons outstretched, on its prey below.

The target, however, is not another bird but a small drone, and when the eagle connects, there is a metallic clunk. With the device in its grasp, the bird of prey returns to the ground.
When small, off-the-shelf models pose security or other threats, birds have the advantage of grounding them without a potentially dangerous crash.

NEW CAMPAIGN CHAIRMAN SAYS:

USE "EARNED" MEDIA - NOT "PAID" MEDIA, from The Old Mountain Goat, that "AGREES" about Paul Media!

http://www.npr.org/2016/05/20/478804592/does-old-school-political-advertising-work-anymore?utm_source=npr_newsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_content=20160528&utm_campaign=&utm_term=#

"...His new campaign chairman Paul Manafort says that Trump understood how to use "earned media" — otherwise known as news coverage — instead of paid media.

"Instead of using 30 second spots," Manafort told MSNBC, "he had a dialogue with the American people through the media and his campaign appearances."

Indeed, Trump was interviewed and covered so obsessively by cable and broadcast television that he simply overwhelmed the negative advertising against him. His conversation with voters also happened on social media, where he dominated during the primaries through his Twitter and Instagram posts..."

Donald Trump says he's rewritten the rules of media coverage and political advertising — he points to his primary victories. We examine whether that might be the case in the general election as well.

SPEAKING IN HIROSHIMA

President Barack Obama while speaking in Hiroshima said that there is a "shared responsibility" to look into the "eye of history" and ask what must be done to prevent another nuclear weapon being used.

YES, "HUMANITY" CAN "HELP" OR "WORSEN" OUR "EARTH PLANET" - IT IS FOR "US" TO "CHOOSE"!

PROGRESSIVE vs. CONSERVATIVE THINKING EARTH PLANET ALWAYS GOES FORWARD INTO THE FUTURE - GOOD OR BAD! PROGRESSIVES TRY TO GO FORWARD BECAUS
Introduction
"The Old Mountain Goat"

Since my Joanna has let go of her life, Charlie (my little companion dog - now, also let go of his life) and I (Papa Foote, "The Traveling Man") were still walking down the "road of life" - smelling the thoughts of the world. But now, since my stroke has started to creep into my old body, my mind is still with the "Eagle’s Flying Higher" but mostly, I just want to try to squeeze my thinking and writing into just a few words that count towards a better world - like no more anger and selfish thinking that comes from warring between human clans instead of helping each other in our World! My choices are my own - from my inner self!

"Thoughts"

Plant Kiindness and Harvest Love
Beware of Charlatans*
*False expert: Somebody who falsely claims a special skill or expertise - Early 17th century: "to babble, patter," an imitation of the sound of empty talk!
Keep Your Mind Open and Balanced
Try To Be True To Your Inner-Self

"Facts"

Some "Facts" are actually truths that we are able to uncover and understand!

Some "Facts" are only truths until something changes as we become able to understand more!

Some "Facts" will never become truths because we will never be able to understand!

"So"

That is why the human mind has trouble with "factual conclusions"!
