"Germany is widely seen as the second largest arms exporter to Israel behind the US"

That's the phrasing you use when you know that stating it as a fact would make you liable for spreading lies.

But that's okay as it's rolling release and unlike other distros you only need to do it exactly once...

Why is Germany not delivering Taurus?

Government: Because we can't.

Media: NOOO!!!! That must be a lie! The totally real reason is <insert random fairy tale>!

Bundeswehr: No, we can't. Neither do we have enough of them, nor would we be able to provide Ukraine with the means to actually use them properly.

Media: NOOO! That must be a lie because we already told you the real reason is...

Leaked military discussion about the options to provide Taurus: Confirming exactly what was said before. That they can't provide Taurus without direct involvement of the German army.

Media: Let's ignore that part and focus on the fact that they confirmed UK personal in Ukraine, so we can keep telling our fairy tale.

Press leak (now even triggering an investigation for betrayal of state secrets): Again confirming what was said for more than 9 months now. That Germany cannot provide Taurus, because hardware for programming is only available in limited amounts with the Bundeswehr and can't be given away.

Media: Why is Scholz so afraid of Russia to still block Taurus?

Seriously... how much longer are we supposed to watch that rediculous propaganda stage play? Talking about beating a dead horse isn't even applicable here anymore as that poor cadaver was reduced to mush long ago.

‘We Jews are just arrested; Palestinians are beaten' Hefets says. One example was the brutal arrest of a hijab-wearing protester at a sit-in in Berlin central station this past weekend, which was captured on video and posted to social media channels.

That guy should not be arrested but straight up jailed or deported for being a propagandist inciting hatred with his obvious lies.

Nobody was beaten. A group that illegally protested on private ground (they had registered the protest in front of the train station, then did it inside) was asked to leave according to the rights of the owner again and again. Then they called the police who asked them to leave multiple times, too, and then told them they would be removed by force if necessary after multiple hours of illegal protesting. In reaction they started cuddling and interlocking arms so they could not be removed easily and got their phones ready to film some imaginary police brutality.

Yeah, right. Germany committing genocide in Gaza by... *check notes* ... existing. And at the time they of course hate Israel and Jews and pay money to Palestinians. Because, hey... it's Germany. They are so evil they can be on two opposite sides of a conflict at the same time, if that's what the propaganda narrative demands.

Also you know very well that it is not about breaking some unimportant laws. They could have freely protested in front of the train station, where people can actually see them. They even registered a protest there which was permitted. Why didn't they? Oh, yeah, because it's not fitting their propaganda narrative of not being allowed to protest. So they changed the location with the sole intention to make it illegal, so they get footage of imaginary police brutality stopping them from protesting...

Und wir tanzten - der Wochenend-Laberfaden (ist zurück!) German

Hey Party-People! Ich weiß, es ist ein bisschen Zeit vergangen. Wurden andere Laberfäden fürs Wochenende erstellt? Keine Ahnung, ich war n bisschen raus - Entschuldigt bitte meine Abwesenheit, meine psychische Gesundheitslage hatte einen üblen Winkel. Sorry @You ich war nicht weg, nur woanders....

Da muss man nicht mal großartig was implementieren. Einfach die Angabe dem ePerso (mit "diese Person in nach den Gesetzen des entsprechenden Staates volljährig" erledigt man sogar Grenzfälle unterschiedlicher Altersgrenzen) hinzufügen, wo auslesen einzelner Daten ohne den Rest schon möglich und das Ganze durch den ausstellenden Staat hinreichend verifiziert ist und fertig.

Das ist aber numal der Witz daran. Man will keine Alterverifikation. Man will Überwachung und das Sammeln privater Daten. Die Altersverifikation ist nur der Vorwand.

Und hirnlose Idioten, wie hier in dem Artikel machen fleißig mit.

Die Wirklichkeit ist nämlich: Altersverifikation ohne Verletzung der Privatssphäre ist einfach. Die geisteskranken Ideen, die stattdessen gepushed werden, eben weil das nur ein Vorwand ist, sind dann aber in der Tat in einer Demokratie nicht machbar. Und das ist auch gut und richtig so. Trotzdem werden sie es immer weiter versuchen. Lügen, wie diese hier, dass unsere Vorstellung von Demokratie oder Datenschutz das Problem sind, gehören nur mit zur Kampagne.

Ooops,
Ooops avatar

Doch, die Möglichkeit Alter oder zumindest Volljährigkeit nachzuweisen ist schon realtiv wichtig. Deshalb ginge das ja auch schon längst, ist nämlich nicht kompliziert.

Darum geht es hier aber gar nicht. Das ist wie immer nur ein Märchen als Vorwand für Überwachung und das Aufweichen von Privatsphäre.

Ooops,
Ooops avatar

Die gibt es nicht. Weil das a) kaum ein reales Problem ist und b) es hier definitiv nicht um eine Lösung geht.

Wenn es um eine Lösung ginge... Gratulation. Ist lange machbar... (wie lange haben wir den ePerso jetzt schon?). Wenn das gewollt wäre, gäbe es bereits eine vernünftige und gleichzeitig anonyme Altersverifikation ohne Probleme mit dem Datenschutz.

Aber in Wirklichkeit gibt es nur zwei Gruppen, die hier "um Hilfe schreien": Lobbyisten aus dem Technologiebereich, die ihren KI-Müll an den Mann bringen und mehr Daten für selbigen abgreifen will, und Politiker, die -oft gut von ersteren bezahlt- total geil auf Überwachung sind.

Deshalb müssen wir den Menschen halt dieses Märchen erzählen, als gäbe es tatsächlich eine Diskrepanz zwischen Demokratie, Privatsphäre, Datenschutz und funktionierendem Altersnachweis.

Ooops,
Ooops avatar

War mir nicht bewußt, dass ich die Volljährigkeit abfragen kann, ohne mein gesamtes Geburtsdatum zu übermitteln, aber umso besser...

Aber wie gesagt, eine simple Alterverifikation ist halt eigentlich gar nicht gewünscht. Man muss immer Platz fürs Datensammeln, am besten noch durch private Anbieter lassen. Wo kämen wir denn sonst hin.

Ooops,

Nope... those are paid from the other side, mainly US tech that on one hand tries to provide AI systems for surveilance while also getting access to more data that they can then use to improve those systems.

Warum geht hier kein Ansatz von “Markt regelt”?

Aber genau darum geht es doch. Bisher mussten die Kommunen aber dafür aufkommen, weil sie dazu verpflichtet waren, im Notfall die Grundversorgung sicher zu stellen. Wenn mein Anbieter mir also zu teuer wird, lass ich den Vertrag auslaufen und der "Grundversorger" muss dann weitermachen und mich versorgen, zu "marktüblichen Preisen", auch wenn sie dafür die Infrastruktur bezahlen müssen und dabei normalerweise eben keine großen Gewinne machen (denn die gehen ja die meiste Zeit an die privaten Anbieter).

Obviously the Russian economy is now so well that they can sell discounted oil to NK as an act of friendship (although they never gave a fuck about them in past). Because it can't be true that Russia is desperate and even getting just a small amount of money for their oilis better than nothing at all...

Germany Is Seizing Jews’ Money Again: It’s fine, they’re pro-Palestine (novaramedia.com)

A pro-Palestine Jewish activist group has had its bank account frozen in Germany for the second time in seven years, after the bank requested a full list of its members’ details in what experts believe is a breach of German law. The group suspects the move was triggered by its involvement in a forthcoming pro-Palestine...

Nice... media that openly cheered for Hamas attacks is telling lies again and like the good little sheep most are nowadays people blindly believe it in rant about imaginary German nazis. The brain-rot induced by social media combined with a complete lack of media literacy gets more impressive every day.

Corn Ethanol is solar-powered, as all the CO2 was absorbed from the air as the corn grew thanks to photosynthesis

Nope, that's bullshit. Biomass is only co2-neutral if it grows on its own and is used up on the spot.

There’s also Hydrogen -> Syngas -> Kerosene, a process of electrification to Hydrogen + CO2 -> Fuel.

So while I pay an amount X for electricity to load a battery you are wiliing to pay 5 times as much for eFuels just to support your strange political views? That's in some way commendable...

So you gotta keep your mind open to all the possibilities that science can provide, including chemistry.

Even an open mind can't cheat thermodynamics

Go figure out a better path of electrification of the large 737 airplanes.

Why would I when we were talkiong about cars? Sure, you will need some synthetic fuel for air travel. But if you want to pay the same sums to power your car, when you could do it for a fraction of that cost that's still stupid.

H2 and ICE are made of far simpler, and more efficient, materials.

No, you can actually build batteries from very simple materials that are far more efficient that fuel production and then burning it (both times with a huge loss). Just because the world focussed on lithium-ion batteries in the last decades (because of small portable devices where energy density was key) and thus used what was already widely available for cars in the beginning, rare materials for car batteries are not actually a requirement.

You’ll need substantial numbers of batteries to power the world at night as well (IE: an impossible number as no battery technology can handle daytime-charge vs nighttime usage of the USA).

That also a big nope. In reality solar and wind can power the world through the day, wind can power the world through the night. The only storage needed for a day/night cycle is a small fraction fo the prodcution. Just enough to shift parts of the production peaks at the afternoon and in the middle of the night ~5 hours forward to the consumption peaks in the evening and early morning.

And don't let me even start with how cheap you can produce massive batteries if you don't care for energy density at all because no one gives a fuck if the warehouse-sized installation for your town or city district is 20% bigger and a few tons heavier. Quite the opposite actually... Li-ion batteries nowadays are incredible bad for such a task. We accept their bad thermal properties in our smartphones and laptops, in cars it's already a drawback that prompted the development of other materials that are already serial produced. For fixed storage they would basically be a unneccessary fire hazard.

The real advantages to H2 are multiple fold

The real drawback of H2 availability. You lose energy to produce it. You lose more energy when you consume it. You will never see cheap H2 as the production is just too inefficient, so there will only be demand in sectors that simply cannot be electrified (air transport, some industries) as well as in chemical production as a raw material and for long-term seasonal storage.

Again... if you want to compete with high-energy demanding industries for the gas to power your car, that's your decision. Everyone else will use batteries for less than a ¼ of the cost. If your ICE is worth it for you, go for it. But don't pretend that the world will collectively decide to use a mode of transportation needing 4-5 times as much energy just for laughs and giggles.

Actually yes... fascism is a natural consequence of late-stage capitalism as it's one way to keep the exploited masses under control by focussing their anger away from the wealthy leaders.

Ooops, (edited )

Basically every historic precedent works here. The turn of the 19th to 20th century can be mainly characterized by the results of a rapid technological advancement via industrialisation in which the workers were left behind while the control sat in higher-up circles, partly made up from remaining aristocracy and partly from rich high education citizens who accumulated mnost of the produced wealth. This basically slowly eliminated a general middle-class, provoking clashes between left wing worker movements representing the majority but not having the power and an established rich upper class trying to exploit them for more wealth. (To no one's surprise this is exactly the time when capitalism was defined in details: Karl Marx - Das Kapital (volume 1 to 3, 1867-1894 ))

That scenario can only (and usually has) resulted in either revolution or focusing that (poor, and usually less educated) majority's anger into another direction. The latter resulted in nationalist populist movements all throughout Europe. The only thing in doubt is if it would have won everywhere over time (as in some countries there still was a stable enough middle-class to delay that development at least fo a time). I assume so, but we will never know, as the countries where this development won faster (usually because the pre-conditions for the poorer population were already worse) changed the course of history for all.

If you want to call it a rise of fascism (the original one in Italy), nazis (in Germany) or a definitely fascistic military dictatorship based on "popular front" politics -with some support by monarchists realizing the risk they were in- (Spain) doesn't make a huge difference in the big picture.

Also: for a less historic and more "today" point of view look at Russia. Contrary to people still associating them with communism their form of oligarchy is definitely a variant of late-stage capitalism. In fact the risk of the US' capitalism developing even further into a pure wealth-based oligarchy is a discussion topic for at least two decades. And look were Russia is taking pointers from right now... straight from the nazi playbook.

(And now that I have mentioned it... and the discussed risk of the US moving into the same oligarchy direction: Isn't there a certain guy leaning heavily into far-right nationalism while using fascist and nazi rhetorics at times, who wants to become president again?)

What kinda oil shill would be promoting fuckn nuclear

Nuclear is incredibly expensive, uneconomic and for all countries starting only now would delay phasing out fossil fuels by decades of planning and construction. When they could start reducing fossil fuels and emmissions right now by building renewables and adding storage successively over years.

So the actual answer is: all of them. They know fossil fuels don't have a future, so they have long changed to delay tactics.

Even if this would be true and nothing coming out of Russia ever is nowadays... 2000? So realistically not even 1000 in a fighting position? How would Russia even care?
