Nothing outrageous about banning a liar and propagandist from spreading lies and propaganda in our country.

Ffs... he even published the speech he was going to give there and it was hard to swallow so much bullshit. On the plus side, he basically answered questions about Hamas atrocities and their threat to Israel with (paraphrasing) "I condemn atrocities in general but here I celebrate the people that attacked Israel" and "What threat? Israel is only afraid because of rampant anti-semitism in Europe and America".

So we know were he stands and if you ask me he can go get fucked with the Hamas buddies he supports.

Oder um Teile besagten Textes einmal zu paraphrasieren (ohne das Geschwafel, wie z.B. wenn er eine Frage nach der Bedrohung durch die Hamas ignoriert und als Antwort lieber über den Antisemitismus in -ausschließlich- Europa and Amerika redet):

Verurteilen sie die Gräueltaten der Hamas? Also grundsätzlich verurteile ich Gräueltaten schon, aber die Menschen die Israel angegriffen haben, feiere ich...

PS: Und Antisemitismus ist ein Problem der linken Eliten.

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.

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.

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.

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).

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.

@Ooops@kbin.social avatar

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 )
@Ooops@kbin.social avatar

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.

Putin dismisses peace talks 'just because (Ukraine) is running out of ammunition' ( kyivindependent.com )

Nobody ever said that.

But there will be no NATO troops in the ongoing war between Russia and Ukraine. And this is a NATO stance from the beginning. Because -surprise- NATO is a defence alliance and Ukraine is not in NATO. Because NATO will -surprise again- not participate in an active war without being attacked. And a lot of their members -you might have gussed it: surprise- wouldn't even be allowed to declare war on Russia without a proper reason by law and/or constitution. If Macron wants to do that, fine. You can do it all on your own, and of course you can't invoke article 5 later then as joining a war is definitely not "being attacked"...

This is exactly how they won the eastern front against Germany in ww2

Actually no. Without massive help from allies neither would they have been able to sustain their losses in material nor would they have kept there logistical chain running without half a million lend-lease trucks and jeeps.

Without both they would have moved mostly by foot. Spamming artillery, move a few hundred meters at best, rinse and repeat. And they would have moved at simliar speeds as in Ukraine now... never actually coming close to Germany before the war ended or starving on the way.

They can produce and use 5 times as many shells. It's still not sustainable. Quite the contrary actually as that use of mass artillery worsens the actual bottle neck. Artillery barrels are wear parts... and they can't even come close to the prodcution numbers needed. Or are we anticipating meat waves with 152mm shells in their hands now?

And the moment you give us your time machine that will be relevant in a discussion about 2024's production capacities.

America is driving Germany’s deindustrialisation ( unherd.com )

The cat is out of the bag. After months of denial, it is now conventional wisdom that Germany — and Europe more generally — faces deindustrialisation due to the end of cheap Russian piped gas. “Germany’s Days as an Industrial Superpower Are Coming to an End,” reads a headline on Bloomberg....

Ooops ,
@Ooops@kbin.social avatar

Sure... so much common wisdom about Germany. Including their immidiate collaps any day now for the last 20+ years. Or the 5%+ economy loss should they not get Russian gas (after all those people who froze to death of course).

In reality those massive losses -coming out of covid, still having supply chain issues and with not even a fraction of the stimulus money other countries spend to counteract on top of no more gas- are now what? +/-0? And with some more obsolete techs slowly sourcing out parts for cost reasons while new technologies open up shop there at the same time.

The only actual risk for Germany (and a lot of other countries) is that people start to believe the bullshit, the outrage farming and doom scrolling trash and all the usual propaganda they are flodded with on a daily basis.

Ooops ,

When your government has taken on debt with the assumption that number keep go up, that’s a problem.

And again, the opposite is true. They have reduced debt constantly for decades, did not spend big sums on stimuli while covid (in fact the recent budgetary discussion was about the unused covid funds) and are still not spending anything on the economy. If they actually would take on debt to invest it into economy boosts like everyone araund them does right now, they would obviously have growth.

So they sat at ~+/-0 now and everyone loudly cries recession, doom and apocalypse because two quarters in a row had a (rounded down) -0.1% which technically qualifies.

Ooops , (edited )
@Ooops@kbin.social avatar

Oh, no! Their debt rose by 1,x percent... to a total of ~64%. That's nearly 20% under EU average. And while countries with rates of 100-160% (let's not even talk about Japan or US as they are playing in another league entirely) take on more debt to push the economy in times of crisis Germany is not spending anything as no new debts (beyond 0,35%) are allowed constitutionally.

Sure... Germany totally has a debt problem. One of retarded politicians stuck in economic ideas of the 1970s that still don't understand the difference between a country's economy and business economy. So they refuse to take on any debt when everyone else does to make their location more attractive for companies via investments.

And still the German economy is only shrinking if you round rediculous low numbers up to 0,1%. Guess the country will deindustrialise and collaps any day now. I hope someone tells the companies building massive new production sites in Germany that they are wasting their money on lost case they will lose all its industry... somehow..
