I believe this is same Alexandra Philips who worked for Cambridge Analytica in hugely problematic Kenyan election, isn’t it? Shame no-one asked about her role in what NGOs described as ‘dirty data-driven campaign’ marked by anonymous attack ads & viral fake news vids #democracy
Phillips v interesting figure because she was close to Farage before & after worked for Cambridge Analytica & is now a Brexit Party candidate in south east. It’s a small world
..not to mention the weird deaths of Kenyan election officials. Note too Phillips’ previous role at UKIP alongside convicted money launderer George Cottrell. So many questions. But sure, go on BBC & lecture viewers unchallenged about party funding...

With the resurgence of the mad boys and girls in red berets and red overalls it looks like all the inroads we had made upto now towards a #TwoPartyState is starting to be eroded.
#SADecides2019
The Radicals in @EFFSouthAfrica and the Nationalists in @VFPlus (both with 68 seats) gained much ground here plus the accumulated votes of the Mickey Mouse Parties (18 seats) didn't do any good to the beloved @Our_DA losing in total 88 seats combined.
SAD 😔!
Also exposed was the fact that we are not as such an equal society as we thought we are
The @IECSouthAfrica #ElectionNight Map shows how divided our society still is with @Our_DA more prevalent in colored communities as whilst @MYANC strong as expected in predominantly BlackAreas

#45_सालपहले_24अप्रैल_1973 के ही दिन सुप्रीम कोर्ट ने ‘केशवानंद भारती बनाम केरल राज्य’ मामले में फैसला सुनाया था.
देश के इतिहास में यह पहला और आखिरी मौका था जब किसी मामले की सुनवाई के लिए 13 जजों की पीठ का गठन किया गया. इस पीठ ने अक्टूबर 1972 और मार्च 1973 के बीच लगभग 70 दिनों तक इस मामले की सुनवाई की. सैकड़ों नजीरों और 71 देशों के संविधानों का अध्यन करने के बाद

To mark the occasion of #LaborDay2019, I will transcribe an interesting, 91-year old #German text on #Marxism that has never entered the #internet before this post of mine. (I tried quite a lot to find the text, to no avail.) I will manually transcribe it, then translate it.
..
..I won't give the source, and also won't say WHY I don't give the source.

I repeat that it is a literal quote (from a 1928 publication), probably published during the #WeimarRepublic:

"#Marximus .. [ist] .. staats-, gesellschaft- und kulturzerstörend .. gegen jeden Staat,..
..jede Gesellschaft, jede Kultur ... ist #Marxismus ein #Aufruhr der #Eigensucht
gegen das #Gemeinwohl, also das Gegenteil jedes wahren #Sozialismus, denn Sozialismus muss stets das Wohl des Ganzen dem des Teiles voranstellen ... seine „Vorfurcht“ [sic; see dictionary entry
