          Fundamento Bíblico para Pena de Morte: a Alma      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Acima, uma frase do teólogo calvinista Rushdoony sobre pena de morte na Bíblia. Ele ressalta que os crimes contra a família merecem a pena de morte na Bíblia. Não estou pregando a pena de morte para adúlteros, gays, ou abortistas. Seria um genocídio gigantesco no mundo moderno. Os males contra a família avançaram muito, terrivelmente. Só desejo lembrar aqui a solidez do fundamento da pena de morte na Bíblia. Apenas isso.

Mas, por outro lado, a pena de morte é fundamentada em sua profundidade na honra a Deus, na honra ao que Ele pregou, para o bem da alma humana e da alma da comunidade. Neste sentido, talvez porque não se exerceu a pena de morte contra os primeiros propagadores do aborto, do adultério ou do casamento gay é que temos essas práticas tão disseminadas e aceitas.

E não adianta argumentar que a pena de morte é coisa do Velho Testamento ou judaica. Cristo aprofundou a lei judaica. Foi Ele que disse que para o adultério não precisa do ato, basta o olhar desejoso, foi Ele que disse que se o seu olho faz você pecar, você deve arrancá-lo, foi Ele que disse que o divórcio não é permitido, apesar de Moisés ter permitido no Velho Testamento.

Recentemente, dois renomados católicos, Solange Hertz  e Sandro Magister, mostraram a solidez da pena de morte na Bíblia, motivados pelo argumento de que a pena de morte é "inadmissível" do Papa Francisco no Catecismo.

O texto de Solange Hertz na verdade é de 2011, ela faleceu com 95 anos em 2015. Já em 2011, ela lutava contra as tentativas de condenar a pena de morte em si pelo Vaticano. O site The Remnant republicou o artigo dela na segunda-feira passada por conta do Papa Francisco.

E ontem, eu li o texto do renomado jornalista italiano Sandro Magister incentivado pela heresia do Papa Francisco, no qual ele lembra o pensamento de um ilustre jesuíta.

Vou colocar os principais argumentos dos dois textos:

Hertz

1) Ela argumenta que a partir de Noé, Deus delegou ao homem também o poder da pena de morte. Genêsis 9:5-6

"Todo aquele que derramar o sangue humano terá seu próprio sangue derramado pelo homem, porque Deus fez o homem à sua imagem." 
Gênesis, 9 - Bíblia Católica Online

2) Depois do Monte Sinai, Moisés codificou a pena de morte na lei judaica (Deut 19: 18-21). A pena de morte foi declarada não apenas para assassinato mas para adultério, estupro, atos sexuais homossexuais (sodomia), sequestro, ofensas aos pais, sacrifício de crianças, idolatria, fazer adivinhações ou buscar espíritos, apostasia, blasfêmia ou qualquer tentativa de seduzir contra a fé, em diversas passagens bíblicas.

3) Depois de algumas considerações sobre como a pena de morte é vista hoje em dia. Hertz lembra qual é o fundamento da pena de morte, não é manter os malfeitores longe da sociedade,o fundamento é a alma humana. Nas palavras dela:

"Dada a queda, as injustiças estão fadadas a ocorrer em qualquer sistema judicial, e todos concordam que devem ser impiedosamente remediadas. O que não é irrelevante é que se precipite no erro que Pio XII adverte. Considerando a segurança física da sociedade como a única razão real para executar um criminoso, argumenta-se que a pena de morte pode agora ser descartada com segurança, supostamente com o argumento de que agora temos à nossa disposição muitas maneiras melhores de proteger as pessoas do malfeitor. Que a pena é devida principalmente como expiação a Deus na justiça, e somente secundariamente ao homem foi completamente perdida de vista. A dimensão sobrenatural da punição como um agente para o bem espiritual da sociedade e do criminoso é, além disso, não apenas não tratada, mas tratada como inexistente."

4) Sobre pena de morte versus a prisão perpétua, Hertz lembra que os padres que convivem com presidiários dizem que a pena de morte tem maior chance de que o malfeitor se arrependa. A prisão perpétua não tem essa característica, o malfeitor continua defendendo sua inocência e morre sem arrependimento. Isto é, não entrega sua alma a Deus. Assim, para a vida eterna do malfeitor a prisão perpétua é pior.

5) Das passagens do Novo Testamento, Hertz lembra por exemplo de Hebreus 9:22-24, que nos mostra a importância do sacrifício para a purificação.

"Moisés, ao concluir a proclamação de todos os mandamentos da lei, em presença de todo o povo reunido, tomou o sangue dos touros e dos cabritos imolados, bem como água, lã escarlate e hissopo, aspergiu com sangue não só o próprio livro, como também todo o povo, 20.dizendo: Este é o sangue da aliança que Deus contraiu convosco (Ex 24,8). 21.E da mesma maneira aspergiu o tabernáculo e todos os objetos do culto. 22.Aliás, conforme a lei, o sangue é utilizado, para quase todas as purificações, e sem efusão de sangue não há perdão. 23.Se os meros símbolos das realidades celestes exigiam uma tal purificação, necessário se tornava que as realidades mesmo fossem purificadas por sacrifícios ainda superiores. "Eis por que Cristo entrou, não em santuário feito por mãos de homens, que fosse apenas figura do santuário verdadeiro, mas no próprio céu, para agora se apresentar intercessor nosso ante a face de Deus." 

Magister

O argumento de Magister é que o Papa tomou posição em favor do secularismo humanista, contra os evangelhos.

Ele aponta um texto de um ilustre cardeal jesuíta americano Avery Dulles que faleceu em 2008.

Dulles lembrou que no Velho Testamento existem 36 ofensas que são resolvidas com pena de morte por apedrejamento, na fogueira, decapitação ou estrangulamento.

Dulles também menciona Gênesis 9:6,  e diz que muitas vezes o próprio Deus mata outras vezes usa os seus profetas para tal como Daniel.

Dulles diz que apesar de Cristo não ter usado de violência (acho que ele não lembrou do episódio do Templo, mas tudo bem), Cristo nunca negou a autoridade do Estado em realizar a pena de morte e Cristo, em debate com os fariseus  Ele disse que aquele que ofende seu pai e sua mãe merece morrer (Mateus 15:4, Marcos 7:10, refletindo Êxodo 21:17 e Levítico 20:9)

Na cruz, Cristo elogia o bom ladrão quando este disse que merecia morrer pois tinha cometido malfeito.

Dulles lembra os patriarcas e doutores da Igreja são unânimes em aceitar a pena de morte.

Em seguida, Dulles parece estar escrevendo para o Papa Francisco, pois ele critica justamente a posição do Papa Francisco de que o mundo moderno respeita mais a vida humana.

Diz Dulles:

"Alguns tomam a posição absolutista de que, como o direito à vida é sagrado e inviolável, a pena de morte está sempre errada. Padre Concetti e outros explicam que a Igreja desde os tempos bíblicos até os nossos dias não conseguiu perceber o verdadeiro significado da imagem de Deus no homem, o que implica que até mesmo a vida terrestre de cada pessoa é sagrada e inviolável. Nos séculos passados, é alegado que judeus e cristãos não conseguiram pensar nas conseqüências dessa doutrina revelada. Eles foram apanhados em uma cultura bárbara de violência e em uma teoria absolutista do poder político, ambos transmitidos do mundo antigo. Mas em nossos dias, um novo reconhecimento da dignidade e dos direitos inalienáveis ​​da pessoa humana amanheceu. Aqueles que reconhecem os sinais dos tempos vão além das doutrinas antiquadas de que o Estado tem um poder divino de matar e que os criminosos perdem seus direitos humanos fundamentais. O ensino sobre a pena de morte deve passar hoje por um desenvolvimento dramático correspondente a esses novos insights.

Essa posição absolutista contra a pena de morte tem uma simplicidade tentadora. Mas não é realmente nova. Foi mantida pelos cristãos sectários pelo menos desde a Idade Média. Muitos grupos pacifistas, como os valdenses, os quakers, os huteritas e os menonitas, compartilhavam desse ponto de vista, mas, como o próprio pacifismo, essa interpretação absolutista do direito à vida não encontrou eco na época entre os teólogos católicos, que aceitavam a pena de morte como consoante com a Escritura, a tradição e a lei natural.

"A crescente oposição à pena de morte na Europa desde o Iluminismo tem andado de mãos dadas com o declínio da fé na vida eterna. No século XIX, os defensores mais consistentes da pena de morte eram as igrejas cristãs e seus oponentes mais consistentes eram grupos hostis a Igreja. Quando a morte passou a ser entendida como o mal maior em vez de um estágio no caminho da vida eterna, filósofos utilitaristas como Jeremy Bentham acharam fácil descartar a pena de morte como "aniquilação inútil".

"Muitos governos na Europa e em outros lugares eliminaram a pena de morte no século XX, muitas vezes contra os protestos de crentes religiosos. Embora essa mudança possa ser vista como um progresso moral, provavelmente se deve, em parte, à evaporação do sentido de pecado, culpa e justiça retributiva, todos essenciais para a religião bíblica e para a fé católica.A abolição da pena de morte em países anteriormente cristãos pode dever-se mais ao humanismo secular do que à penetração mais profunda no evangelho.

"Argumentos do progresso da consciência ética têm sido usados ​​para promover uma série de alegados direitos humanos que a Igreja Católica constantemente rejeita em nome da Escritura e tradição. O magistério recorre a essas autoridades como base para repudiar o divórcio, o aborto, as relações homossexuais, e a ordenação de mulheres ao sacerdócio.Se a Igreja se sente vinculada pelas Escrituras e tradição nessas outras áreas, parece inconsistente para os católicos proclamarem uma “revolução moral” sobre a questão da pena de morte.

"O magistério católico não defende e nunca defendeu a abolição incondicional da pena de morte. [...] O papa João Paulo II falou por toda a tradição católica quando proclamou em" Evangelium Vitae "(1995) que" o assassinato direto e voluntário de um ser humano inocente é sempre gravemente imoral. Mas ele sabiamente incluiu nessa declaração a palavra "inocente". Ele nunca disse que todo criminoso tem o direito de viver nem negou que o Estado tem o direito, em alguns casos, de executar o culpado. […]

"O magistério católico nos últimos anos tem se tornado cada vez mais vocal na oposição à prática da pena capital. O Papa João Paulo II em 'Evangelium Vitae' declarou que 'como resultado de melhorias constantes na organização do sistema penal' casos em que o a execução do agressor seria absolutamente necessária "são muito raras, se não praticamente inexistentes".

"Chegando a esta conclusão prudencial, o magistério não está mudando a doutrina da Igreja. A doutrina continua sendo a mesma: que o Estado, em princípio, tem o direito de impor a pena de morte a pessoas condenadas por crimes muito graves. Mas a tradição clássica sustentava que o Estado não deveria exercer esse direito quando os efeitos maléficos superam os bons efeitos, de modo que o princípio ainda deixa em aberto a questão de se e quando a pena de morte deve ser aplicada: o papa e os bispos. Usando um julgamento prudencial, na sociedade contemporânea, pelo menos em países como o nosso, a pena de morte não deveria ser invocada, porque, no geral, faz mais mal do que bem. Eu pessoalmente apoio essa posição. "

          HEADLINE: Akhir Drama Cawapres Jokowi dan Prabowo, Sosok Baru Jadi Kejutan?      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Liputan6.com, Jakarta - Dua hari menjelang batas masa pendaftaran pasangan calon presiden dan wakil presiden di Komisi Pemilihan Umum (KPU), drama masih belum berakhir. Jokowi dan Prabowo memang hampir bisa dipastikan kembali maju menjadi calon presiden.

Tanda tanya besar beberapa pekan terakhir justru berkutat seputar siapa sosok yang akan menjadi pendamping Prabowo dan Jokowi pada pertarungan jilid II keduanya di ajang Pilpres 2019. Hingga Rabu (8/8/2018) malam, koalisi di masing-masing kubu masih sibuk menggelar pertemuan membahas nama cawapres.

Koalisi pendukung Prabowo Subianto, misalnya, hingga Rabu malam terus menggodok nama cawapres. 

"Bukan hanya Gerindra, tapi empat partai, Gerindra, PKS, PAN dan Demokrat," kata Anggota Dewan Pembina Partai Gerindra Habiburokhman kepada Liputan6.com, Rabu (8/8/2018).

Kubu Prabowo Subianto masih memanfaatkan waktu yang tersisa untuk mengkalkulasi sosok cawapres. Namun, Habiburokhman enggan mengungkapkan nama kandidat yang sedang ditimbang.

Selama ini ada tiga nama kuat yang mencuat di bursa cawapres Prabowo. Mereka adalah Ketua Kogasma Demokrat Agus Harimurti Yudhoyono, Ketua Majelis Syuro PKS Salim Segaf Al Jufri, dan pendakwah Ustaz Abdul Somad.

Dua nama terakhir merupakan amanat Ijtima Ulama yang diselenggarakan Gerakan Nasional Pengawal Fatwa Ulama (GNPF-U) beberapa waktu lalu. Hanya saja, Habiburokhman menutup rapat dinamika pembahasan yang terjadi di internal Koalisi Prabowo.

Yang jelas, ada peluang muncul nama di luar yang sering disebut-sebut selama ini. "Ada potensi out the box terjadi," kata Habiburokhman berteka-teki.

Belum jelasnya kepastian sosok cawapres Prabowo, berdampak pada persiapan teknis pendaftaran. Habiburokhman mengungkapkan, tim yang akan mengurus pendaftaran menyiapkan sejumlah skenario.

Siapa pun yang nantinya akan mendampingi Prabowo, diharapkan tak mengganggu proses pendaftaran. "Kita semua sudah siap prasyarat. Jadi kalau (cawapres) sudah diputus, kita sudah siap," katanya.

Sementara, Sekjen Partai Gerindra Ahmad Muzani mengatakan, keputusan siapa cawapres pendamping Prabowo akan diumumkan, Kamis (9/8/2018) pagi.

"Insyaallah nanti malam bisa diambil keputusan dan besok pagi bisa diumumkan," ujar Ahmad Muzani di kediaman Prabowo, Jalan Kertanegara, Kebayoran Baru, Jakarta Selatan, Rabu (8/8/2018).

Namun, pada Rabu malam, perselisihan diduga terjadi di kubu Prabowo Subianto. 

Politikus Partai Demokrat Andi Arief mengirim sinyal mengejutkan di detik-detik akhir pendaftaran calon presiden dan calon wakil presiden. Dua hari jelang batas waktu pendaftaran capres-cawapres di KPU, Demokrat disinyalir bercerai dengan koalisi Prabowo Subianto yang digawangi Partai Gerindra.

Melalui akun twitter pribadinya, Andi Arief melontarkan ciutan keras. "Malam ini kami menolak kedatangannya ke Kuningan. Bahkan keinginan dia menjelaskan lewat surat sudah tak perlu lagi," tulis Andi Arief melalui akun twitternya @AndiArief__, Rabu (8/8/2018) malam.

Dia kembali melontarkan pernyataannya. Nadanya semakin keras menyindir mantan Danjen Kopassus tersebut.

"Kemarin sore bertemu Ketum Demokrat dengan janji manis perjuangan. Belum dua puluh empat jam mentalnya jatuh."

Saat dihubungi, Andi Arief mengaku kecewa dengan sikap politik Prabowo.

"Baru tadi malam Prabowo datang dengan semangat perjuangan. Hanya hitungan jam dia berubah sikap karena uang. Besar kemungkinan kami akan tinggalkan koalisi kardus ini. Lebih baik kami konsentrasi pada pencalegan ketimbang masuk lumpur politik PAN, PKS dan Gerindra," jelasnya.

Dia semakin mempertegas sikap politik Gerindra. "Partai Demokrat tidak alami kecocokan karena Prabowo dalam menentukan cawapresnya dengan menunjuk orang yang mampu membayar PKS dan PAN. Ini bukan DNA kami," tegasnya.

Belakangan nama Sandiaga Uno mencuat sebagai kandidat cawapres pendamping Prabowo.

Pada Rabu malam, Wakil Gubernur DKI Jakarta tersebut terpantau mendatangi kediaman Prabowo Subianto, Jl Kertanegara, Jakarta Selatan. Hingga berita ini diturunkan, belum jelas apakah namanya yang akan diumumkan pada Kamis pagi. 

Di kubu lainnnya, Wakil Sekjen PPP Achmad Baidowi mengatakan koalisi pendukung Jokowi telah mempersiapkan keperluan administratif pendaftaran capres dan cawapres. Ia mengindikasikan, koalisi pun belum mendapat informasi, siapa yang akan maju mendampingi Jokowi.

"Untuk kolom nama cawapres belum diisi, tinggal menunggu keputusan Jokowi akan menggandeng siapa," katanya kepada Liputan6.com, Rabu (8/8/2018). "Kejutan bergantung sudut pandang."

Jokowi sendiri mengaku sudah mengantongi nama cawapres. Namun, ia belum mau membocorkannya ke publik.

"Depannya pakai M pokoknya," ungkap Jokowi di Istana Kepresidenan, Jakarta, Rabu (8/8/2018).

Jokowi mengaku nama cawapresnya itu sudah dikantongi sejak lama. Namun, ketika disinggung mengenai siapa nama cawapres yang akan mendampinginya, Jokowi malah menghindar.

"Muhammad Jusuf Kalla juga M. Mbak Puan juga M. Mas Airlangga juga M," kata Jokowi.

Partai-Partai Grogi

Direktur Saiful Mujani Research and Consulting Sirojuddin Abbas menilai, penyelenggaraan pemilu serentak punya andil membuat pemilihan presiden dan wakil presiden lebih dramatis.

Jadwal serentak ini, menurut dia, menyebabkan kerja pemenangan legislatif terkait erat dengan pemenangan eksekutif. Sumber kesulitan utama negosiasi cawapres bagi kedua kubu koalisi adalah soal dampak elektoral pasangan capres/cawapres ke partai politik.

"Partai-partai cukup grogi dengan efek ekor jas dari tokoh calon presiden atau wapres terhadap pilihan di legislatif," kata dia kepada Liputan6.com, Rabu (8/8/2018).

Abbas menilai, partai mana pun yang bisa menempatkan kadernya sebagai capres atau cawapres diyakini akan terkena efek elektoral positif. Keuntungan ini yang dinilai menggiurkan bagi parpol mana pun.

Alhasil, lanjut dia, partai-partai yang tidak terwakili sebagai capres atau cawapres membutuhkan konsesi yang sepadan. Bentuknya bisa beragam.

"Apakah dalam bentuk power sharing atau konsesi lainnya. Termasuk dukungan untuk melaksanakan kampanye," Abbas berujar.

Dari konteks sosial-politik makro, politik nasional juga tengah dipengaruhi sentimen agama. Hal ini memicu tarik-menarik di tubuh koalisi kedua kubu.

Sirojuddin memperkirakan Jokowi akan memilih pendamping dari tokoh di luar partai politik. Ia menduga sosok pilihan Jokowi merupakan orang yang punya pengalaman politik, pemerintahan dan jaringan luas dengan kelompok Islam.

Ada satu nama yang memenuhi kriteria itu. "Yang terkuat sejauh ini Mahfud MD, Kiai Maruf Amin, Said Aqil. Yang memiliki pengalaman lengkap di eksekutif, yudikatif, dan legislatif hanya Pak Mahfud," ungkapnya.

Adapula nama Moeldoko, Sri Mulyani dan Chairul Tanjung (CT). Ketiganya, kata Sirojuddin, punya rekam jejak di pemerintahan dan kompeten. CT juga dikenal diterima kalangan Muslim. Moeldoko juga diterima publik. Sementara, menurut dia, Sri Mulyani masih dihantui problem kasus Bank Century

Sedangkan di Kubu Prabowo, Sirojuddin melihat negosiasi Demokrat dengan PKS menjadi faktor sentral alotnya pembahasan. Yang jelas, dinamika koalisi kubu Jokowi dan Prabowo punya karakteristik yang berbeda. 

 

 

Beda Kubu Prabowo dan Jokowi

Meski sama-sama belum mengumumkan nama cawapres, ada perbedaan besar antara Koalisi Prabowo dan Jokowi. Dinamika koalisi Jokowi relatif lebih bisa dikelola.

Semua anggota koalisi sepakat menyerahkan putusan akhir di tangan Jokowi. Cuma PKB yang belum 'menyerah' menyorongkan ketua umumnya, Muhaimin Iskandar atau Cak Imin agar dilirik Jokowi menjadi cawapres.

Manuver paling anyar ketika 95 kiai Nahdlatul Ulama (NU) dan Ketua Umum PBNU Kiai Said Agil Siraj bertemu Sabtu (4/8/2018) malam. Mereka sepakat mendorong Cak Imin sebagai cawapres Jokowi pada 2019.

Tak cuma itu, mereka juga memberi tenggat waktu dua hari bagi Jokowi untuk memenuhinya. "Memberi deadline kepada Jokowi dalam dua hari," kata Mustayar Pengurus Besar Nahdlatul Ulama (PBNU) KH Najib Abdul Qodir kepada wartawan, Senin (6/8/2018).

Sementara di kubu Prabowo, kompleksitas dinamikanya lebih rumit. Partai Demokrat memang tak terlalu ngotot mengajukan Agus Harimurti Yudhoyono sebagai cawapres.

Ketua Umum Demokrat, Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, menegaskan menyerahkan semua keputusan di tangan Prabowo. Hal itu ia sampaikan usai pertemuan kedua dirinya dengan Prabowo di Kertanegara, Jakarta Selatan, Senin (30/7/2018).

Justru PKS yang masih ngotot mendorong sembilan nama kandidat cawapres yang sebelumnya pernah ditawarkan ke Prabowo. Di antara sembilan nama itu terdapat Ketua Majelis Syuro PKS, Salim Segaf Al Jufri.

"Ini berarti bahwa keputusan sembilan nama itu tidak mati, dia tetap hidup. Cuma antara keputusan Majelis Syuro yang lalu dengan ijtima ulama ada titik temu pada titik Ustaz Salim Segaf Al Jufri. Nah disitulah sekarang fokus kita," kata Presiden PKS Sohibul Iman, Selasa (7/8/2018) malam.

Bagi Koalisi Prabowo, masalah cawapres memang makin rumit karena masuknya rekomendasi Gerakan Nasional Pengawal Fatwa Ulama (GNPF-U). Berdasarkan hasil Ijtima Ulama yang mereka selenggarakan, muncul nama Salim Segaf al Jufri.

Hal ini menambah kepercayaan diri PKS. Menurut Sohibul Iman, PKS akan mengawal hasil rekomendasi Ijtima Ulama itu.

Realita koalisi Kubu Prabowo lantas membuat PAN was-was. Ketua DPP Partai Amanat Nasional (PAN) Yandri Susanto menegaskan partainya tak setuju Prabowo memilih cawapres dari kalangan partai politik.

"Kalau Pak Prabowo ngambil Salim Segaf misalnya, ya kami tidak setuju, atau ngambil AHY pasti kami tidak setuju. Itu sudah hampir pendapat umum dari seluruh provinsi (DPW)," kata Yandri di Kompleks Parlemen, Senayan, Jakarta, Selasa (7/8/2018).

Bukan tak mungkin PAN berpikir ulang untuk mendukung Prabowo. Karena itu, partai menawarkan jalan tengah.

Prabowo, menurut Yandri, harus mengambil cawapres dari kalangan nonpartai. Nama Ustaz Abdul Somad menjadi pemecah kebuntuan.

Ulama yang tengah populer itu kebetulan juga menjadi cawapres yang direkomendasikan Ijtima Ulama GNPF untuk mendampingi Prabowo--selain Salim Segaf Al Jufri.

Persoalannya, Abdul Somad dalam beberapa kali kesempatan menyatakan tak berminat maju menjadi cawapres. Dengan kondisi itu, pilihan Prabowo makin terbatas.

Bila ego partai masih dikedepankan, bukan tak mungkin koalisi layu sebelum terkembang. Kekhawatiran itu sudah diungkapkan Yandi Susanto.

"Kalau semuanya ngotot masing-masing mengajukan nama, deadlock namanya," ungkapnya.

          Comment on Seven Traits of Healthy Churches Today by Charles      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
I agree with you John. Some, who would never set foot in a church would listen to a friend share the gospel with them. Once saved and in communion with God, He will lead them. At that time they will likely seek out God in the church of their/His choosing. Likewise, if you are hopeful non-believers entering your church will accept Christ, the gospel needs to be preached every time the doors are open. It is not enough to live a good life; my dad lived a loving, giving life but didn't accept all that "Jesus stuff". All Christians need to know how and be willing to share the gospel to others around them, in love.

What a great article to contemplate! I think what I would add is already woven through your theme. Not forgetting where God found us, and know that Jesus is full of GRACE and TRUTH, I would say a healthy church is one that is a soft place for sinners to fall...while we as the church pour lots of grace on them, knowing that at some point in the journey with us they will come face to face with the truth of Jesus...full of GRACE and TRUTH.

ISLAMABAD: The Elec­tion Commission of Pakistan (ECP) on Tuesday notified the final results of the general election but withheld results of nine national and 17 provincial assembly seats for various reasons, stirring a new controversy before the formation of the next government.

The strength of the Pakis­tan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) in the National Assembly has gone down from 116 to 112 for now and its ally Balochistan Awami Party from four to three.

The nine NA constituencies where the results have been withheld include NA-53 (Islamabad) and NA-131 (Lahore) from where prime minister-in-waiting Imran Khan had defeated former PM Shahid Khaqan Abbasi and former minister Khawaja Saad Rafique, respectively.

Even the notifications of Mr Khan’s victory from NA-35 (Bannu), NA-95 (Mianwali-I) and NA-243 (Karachi East-II) have been issued conditionally. “The notification shall be subject to the final decision of the Election Commission in the pending case of violation of code of conduct,” a note attached with all the three notifications read.

Issues conditional results of Imran’s victory from three constituencies, withholds notification of two other seats

Though the note did not explain the nature of the violation, it apparently referred to the violation of secrecy of vote by stamping the ballot paper in the NA-53 (Islamabad) constituency on the table of presiding officer, instead of going behind the voting screen.

The development related to the issuance of condition notifications of Mr Khan’s victory generated a debate on whether he would be able to form a government at the Centre.

In all, the PTI had won on four out of the nine NA seats where the results have been put on hold.

Three of the nine seats had been claimed by the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz and one each by the Pakistan Peoples Party and the BAP.

This has reduced the strength of the PTI in the NA to 112, followed by the PML-N (61) and the PPP (42). The strength of the BAP has gone down to three.

The notifications of seven of the nine constitutions have been withheld pursuant to orders of the high courts. These include NA-131 (Lahore) constituency, where Mr Khan won against Khawaja Saad Rafique; NA-108 constituency where PTI’s Farrukh Habib defeated PML-N’s Abid Sher Ali; the NA-140 (Kasur) constituency, where PTI’s Sardar Talib Nakai defeated Rana Mohammad Hayat Khan; NA-90 and -91 (Sargodha) where PML-N’s Hamid Hameed and Zulfiqar Ali Bhatti emerged victorious, NA-112 (Toba Tek Singh) seat which was won by PML-N’s Junaid Anwar Chaudhry; and NA-215 (Sanghar) seat that was won by PPP’s Naveed Dero. Result of NA-271 (Kech) has been withheld for failure of BAP’s Zubeda Jalal to submit return of her election expenses.

Elections had taken place on 270 of the total 272 general seats in the National Assembly. Elections in NA-60 (Rawalpindi) constituency had been postponed after the disqualification of PML-N leader Haneef Abbasi only days before the general election, while polls in Faisalabad had been postponed after the death of a contesting candidate.

Five seats in Punjab Assembly

Of the total 297 seats in the Punjab Assembly, elections were held on 295 seats. In PP-87 and PP-103 constituencies, elections had been postponed after the death of contesting candidates. The ECP declared final results of 290 PP seats.

A notification has not been issued for PP-296 (Rajanpur) as the PTI’s winning candidate died after his victory. In the remaining four constituencies, results have been withheld on orders of the Lahore High Court. The PTI and the PML-N had won two seats each of them.

Six seats in Sindh Assembly

While elections took place on 129 of the total 297 general seats of the Sindh Assembly, the ECP withheld results of six of them. The Grand Democratic Alliance and the PPP had won three seats each from these constituencies.

The notification of PS-73 where PPP’s Taj Mohammad defeated GDA’s Fehmida Mirza has not been issued, as the ECP awaits result from the returning officer after recount.

However, the results of PS-29 (Khairpur), PS-36 (Naushahro Feroze), PS-46 (Mirpurkhas), PS-54 (Tharparkar) and PS-82 (Jamshoro) have been withheld owing to stay order of the Sindh High Court.

Three seats in KP Assembly

Of the total 99 general seats of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Assembly, polls had been held on 97 seats while the results of three of them have been withheld. The PTI had claimed victory on all the three seats.

PTI’s Azizullah Khan had won from the PK-4 (Swat) constituency and the result has been withheld for want of vote recount. PTI’s Shaukat Ali had won PK-23 (Shangla) seat, while the ECP withheld its result for unexplained reason. PTI’s Haji Qalandar Khan had won the PK-38 (Abbottabad) seat whose notification has been withheld on the Peshawar High Court order.

Three seats in Balochistan Assembly

Results of three constituencies of Balochistan Assembly have also been withheld. Ahmad Alki of Hazara Democratic Party had claimed victory in PB-26 (Quetta) constituency whose result was withheld by the ECP for unexplained reasons. The notification of independent candidate Mir Niamatullah Zehri’s victory had been withheld for his failure to meet the mandatory legal requirement of submitting return of election expenses.

The result of another winning candidate Zahid Ali from PB 41 (Washuk) had not been notified for unexplained reasons.

PTI’s reaction

The PTI has pleaded the chief justice of Pakistan (CJP) to take notice of the withholding of results by the Election Commission and the delay caused by the orders of subordinate courts.

While expressing serious reservations over the delay of election results, PTI central secretary information Fawad Chaudhary said smooth transition of power was a matter of serious concern. “Any sort of delay will directly affect the country and masses,” he said.

Terming the delay harmful, the PTI leader stated that it would cast doubts on the whole electoral process. Therefore, he requested the CJP to personally take notice of the delay caused by the ECP and the subordinate courts.

“Jesus prefers patient, persistent, persevering, pestering prayer! St. Dominic claims this creates within us a readiness, a space, to receive God’s answer.  We would say such constant prayer exercises our ‘faith muscle,’ which tends to get flabby,” said Cardinal Timothy Dolan of New York.

The cardinal pointed to St. Dominic’s dedication to the rosary and contemplation of the Gospels as daily practices worthy of imitation, comparing St. Dominic’s perseverance with that of the Canaanite woman in the Gospel.

Dolan also commended the amount of prayer that takes place at the Knights of Columbus’ annual convention, which includes daily Masses, a Eucharistic adoration chapel, and invocations before every event.

Aug. 8 is celebrated in the Church as the memorial of St. Dominic, the 13th century founder of the Order of Preachers, known as the Dominicans, who spread devotion to the rosary.

“This towering saint gives us an abundance of attributes to celebrate: his preaching, so renowned that his spiritual sons are called ‘the order of preachers’; his intellect, the spring that gave us scholarly giants such as St. Albert and St. Thomas Aquinas; his zeal, as St. Dominic was non-stop in his teaching, preaching, travel, and work, all for Jesus and His Church,” said Dolan.

However, he reminded the Knights that prayer was “what generated the renowned preaching, scholarship, and evangelical energy of St. Dominic.”

After the Mass, the Greek Melkite Archbishop of Aleppo, Syria, Jean-Clement Jeanbart spoke briefly about a pilgrim icon of Our Lady Help of Persecuted Christians, which was then blessed by Archbishop William Lori of Baltimore.

Lori’s blessing was the kickoff to the Knights’ Marian icon prayer program. The archbishop invoked St. Paul’s words, “though we are afflicted in every way, we are not crushed; though perplexed, not driven to despair; though persecuted, not forsaken; though struck down, not destroyed.”

          Comment on Stan Mikita Has Passed Away by RED TOP PARKING      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
And now 21 belongs to the ages. One of the things about Stan in Chicagoland is that of all the sports people we followed and admired, Stan was more like us, it seemed, than the others. My uncle Walter was a doctor and owned a home in Elmhurst in the 60’s. One night shortly after he had become a young MD Walter ended up in the Blackhawks dressing room stitching up a player. This began a long association with the team and numerous players. Mikita and Walter were neighbors in Elmhurst, about the same age, wives and kids about the same age. They were friends. Of course Stan was my hero, as was Bobby, but Stan was like family and Bobby was more like Mickey Mantle. When 9 left town Stan filled the void and his stature grew. Memories. The golden tones of Lloyd Pettit over the radio in a darkened kid’s room so vividly made alive by what Stosh was doing on the ice. Verdi said Mikita “could stickhandle through a car wash and not get wet”. It is so. One very hot summer day when I was about 10 years old we show up at my uncle’s house. My Aunt Jeannie (God bless her) says “Your uncle is waiting for you in the den”. I mope down the hall as if I’m in trouble and go in. Uncle Walter is sitting there with three other guys. Instantly I recognize Stan, even through his summer mustache (it looked great on him!). Next to him were Kenny Wharram and Pit Martin. They had just returned from the golf course and were well into their beers, frosty mugs of which were quickly set aside when the kid walked in. I got my hair tussled and some how ‘ya doings and also heard some wisecracking between them which I didn’t understand at the time but it sure was special to laugh with those men. I was ten feet tall that day.

Island of the Dead GodPublisher: White Wolf

An island of magic and mystery…

Wellsprings of Quintessence are never easy to come by. But on the Baltic island of Rügen, crays are found in surprising numbers. Once the stronghold of the Old Faith, the island has been contested between the Valdaermen and the Messianic Voices since the fall of the temple-fortress at Arkona in 1168.

where an acient evil has slipped its chains

Island of the Dead God is a setting book for Dark Ages: Mages, examining  the island of Rügen, once the center of worship for the Slavic god Svetovid and now the site of a secret struggle between the Valdaermen, Messianic Voices, and Old Faith as to who gets to control the island’s vast, magical resources.

Adding to the mystery is an ancient evil that lies beneath Rügen, free once more to whisper its madness and corruption to the inhabitants of the island.

          Comentario en Los Oscars crean la categoría del Premio del Público por rafaelgg      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Respecto al oscar del público os puedo comentar una cosa que sucedió en la BBC en 1999 cuando yo vivía en Londres. Barry Norman, un prestigioso crítico de cine se le ocurrió hacer una encuesta entre la audiencia para que votaran las 100 mejores películas de la historia por aquello del cambio de milenio y todo eso. Los resultados dejaron al tal Norman con una cara de pasmo absoluto. De las 100 películas tan solo una de lengua no inglesa: Cinema Paradiso. Eso quiere decir que olvidaros de encontrar en dicha lista a gentes como Kurosawa, Buñuel o Fellini. Ni una sola película de alguien tan aclamado en las últimas décadas como Woody Allen. Pero mejor os paso directamente la lisa porque es para mear y no echar gota, tanto por los títulos que aparecen como por el puesto que ocupan algunos: 1. Star Wars - A New Hope (1977) 2.

          the good mother      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
fooling around on amazon with my daughter - she found 3 movies to put in amazon library - and i saw 1 i wanted.

'the good mother.'

this was a wonderful movie based on amazing book by sue miller.

diane keaton should have won another oscar for this 1.  she is amazing as anna.  the basics are she and her husband divorce.  they have a daughter.  anna's raising her daughter and working.  she ends up having a boyfriend (liam neeson) and that ticks the ex-husband off. 

the daughter ends up in a custody battle - i'm providing as few spoilers as possible.

it's a really good movie.  leonard nimoy directed it.

i think 'shoot the moon' is probably diane's most amazing performance ever.  but 'the good mother' is probably close.   diane's a great comedy actor but she can deliver in a drama and has repeatedly.  she's just an all around strong actress. 

she's made some films that will stand the test of time.  those include the 1s with woody allen, the godfather movies, 'something's got to give,' 'reds,' 'shoot the moon,' 'looking for mr. goodbar,' '1st wives club' and many more.  and let's name the woody classics - 'sleeper,' 'love & death,' 'annie hall,' 'manhattan' and 'manhattan murder mystery.'

she really is something amazing.

oh, and she just co-starred in the summer's biggest comedy: 'book club.'



let's close with c.i.'s 'Iraq snapshot:'


Tuesday, August 7, 2018.

We're going to start with something non-Iraq at all (we'll also be ending with something non-Iraq).  I know Illeana Douglas and have known her for years.  As Rebecca noted last month, I first heard of Leslie Moonves' assault of Illeana years ago.  At THIRD this week, we did "Unlike Alyssa Milano, we'll stand with Illeana Douglas."  (Ann offered "Alyssa Milano reveals she doesn't give a damn about women" last night.)

Alyssa Milano is not who she claims or self-presents as.  Rose McGowan rightly called her a lie.  Though Corey Feldman was sympathetic to her, he publicly mocked her -- rightly so -- when she claimed she never had any idea that he or Corey Haim had been molested as children.  She knew.  She claims she never knew that Brad Kern was abusive to women on the set of CHARMED -- where she was a producer.  Everyone else knew.  There were complaints.  Repeated complaints.  She took a producer's credit (and pay) and it was her job to provide a safe work environment.  She failed.  To TIME magazine and others, she has presented herself as the head of #MeToo (after stealing the phrase from African-American  woman Tarana Burke -- one of her many cultural appropriations).  Yet though she Tweets over and over daily, she's still not Tweeted about Illeana or any of the other women who spoke out in Ronan Farrow's NEW YORKER piece.


Not one Tweet.  CAA is the reason I'm not part of #MeToo.  CAA pimped out women constantly.  There's a foreign actress who appeared in several hit films and was used by CAA before and after.  They pimped her out.  She remains destroyed today.  (If she chooses to tell her story publicly, I will support her.  Currently, she's still in therapy attempting to deal with what they put her through.)  Alyssa's married to CAA's David Bugliari and Alyssa's a "CAA speaker" that you can 'book.'

Alyssa's silence backs up everything many of us have long said.  She's is not a friend to women, she is stilted actress determined to self-promote, desperate for a career.  She is not about empowering women.  She's is about co-opting anything she can.

As for CBS, Leslie is part of a long pattern there that began with William Paley and the hell he put his wife (Babe Paley through) -- one affair after another, while he stopped having sex with her early in their marriage, his refusal to allow her to raise their children or even hug them in front of him.  He was pure filth and set the tone all those years ago.  CBS has always been hostile to women.  Most networks would be thrilled to have a hit show but CBS has always only been thrilled to have a hit show if it starred men.  Whether we're talking DESIGNING WOMEN, CAGNEY & LACEY, CYBILL, THE NANNY or the now returning MURPHY BROWN, CBS repeatedly undercuts and undermines their programs with female leads, undercutting them, pushing them through one time change after another, etc., etc.  At THIRD, Ava and I have long documented the institutional sexism at CBS and we've done it for a reason.

Leslie is guilty and if I were Julie Chen, sleeping with my married boss and then lucky enough to get him to leave his wife for me, I guess I'd rush forward to defend him too.  I mean, what career would Julie have if she hadn't slept with Leslie?  None at all.  I could go on and on here.

The point is Illeana told the truth and has been telling it to a number of us over the years.  And CBS has made clear that they do not take harassment seriously by allowing Moonves to remain on the job while he is under investigation.  He should be put on administrative leave.  Anything less goes to CBS not taking the issue seriously.  He is accused of harassment and attempted rape.  These are serious charges.  If you take them seriously, you put him on administrative leave until the investigation is over.  Otherwise?  You're saying work safety and the right of women to be safe at work does not matter.

Grasp that fake ass Alyssa is not just refusing to stand up for Illeana, she's refusing to stand up for women who may encounter Leslie.  He needs to be removed during the investigation.


Meanwhile, protests continue in Iraq.

Why?  Each year, Iraq rakes in billion from oil sales.  And the World Bank estimates the current population of Iraq to be 37.2 million.

With that kind of money coming in and that small of a population, meeting the needs of the people should be easy.

But it hasn't been.  The World Bank notes, for example, "The poverty rate increased from 19.8 percent in 2012 to an estimated 22.5 percent in 2014."  How does that happen?  Government corruption.  Politicians and officials stealing the public's money.

And it leaves nothing for the people.  Hence the video below.

The corruption has enriched many.  Nouri al-Maliki's son, for example, has some really swank living spaces in England and some really sporty cars.  That's nice for a man who's never really worked in his life.  But that's awful for the Iraqi people.

The Iraqi people are protesting to save their lives.  They are risking their lives with these ongoing protests and 14 have already died.


The excessive violence and cruelty used by the Iraqi security forces ended the lives of 14 demonstrators in 10 days of ongoing protests calling for economic and service improvements," the Iraqi Observatory for Human Rights said."




They are demanding basic rights including access to electricity and potable water, including jobs.

These protests are now a month old and it's amazing how many of the Twitter 'social justice warriors' have ignored these protests.

Why do they have to protest?

Among other things because the US government destroyed Iraq with the (ongoing) war.  The US still bombs Iraq.  Monday, the US Defense Dept announced:



Strikes in Iraq
There were no reported strikes conducted in Iraq yesterday.
On Aug. 4 near Dulab, coalition military forces conducted a strike consisting of an engagement against ISIS targets, destroying two ISIS tunnels.
On Aug. 3 near Wadi Ashai, coalition military forces conducted a strike consisting of an engagement against an ISIS tactical unit.
There were no reported strikes conducted in Iraq on Aug. 2.
On Aug. 1 near Wadi Ashai, coalition military forces conducted a strike consisting of five engagements against ISIS targets, destroying two ISIS-held buildings and three ISIS supply caches.
On July 31 near Wadi Ashai and Wadi Zagatoon, coalition military forces conducted two strikes consisting of two engagements against ISIS targets, destroying an ISIS-held building.

On 30 July 30 near Wadi Ashai, coalition military forces conducted a strike consisting of an engagement against ISIS targets. The strike engaged an ISIS tactical unit.

The US government turned Iraq into a land of widows and orphans.  And it compounded the problems by 'selecting' Iraq's prime ministers.  Yesterday, we went over Nouri al-Maliki and Barack Obama, then-US president, selected Hayder al-Abadi to replace him in 2014.  (After Nouri's actions led to the rise of ISIS in Iraq.)


Supporting Abadi "was the easy way for the US to try to protect the gains it has made in Iraq over the last four years without having to do the substantial groundwork that would have been required to build up a range of political alternatives"

Magyar festők és grafikusok életrajzi lexikona I-II.
Festő. 1922-ben került a budapesti Képzőművészeti Főiskolára, mint Rudnay Gyula növendéke, majd elhagyta a főiskolát, és mint Vaszary-növendék tért oda vissza. 1926-ban Itálián át Párizsba ment, ahol nagy érdeklődéssel szívta magába mindazt, amit látott: P. Picasso, Braque, Matisse, az alakuló szürrealisták művészetét. Az elsők egyike, akik Breton manifesztumát Pestre hozták. 1928-ban vett részt első alkalommal csoportkiállításon: a Munkácsy-céh első kiállításán és az UME tárlatán. 1928-ban berlini tanulmányútján Scheiber Hugó közvetítésével került kapcsolatba H. Waldennel, és 1929-ben Moholy Nagy közreműködésével szerepelt a Sturm Galériában, majd Budapesten a Tamás Galériában mutatta be alkotásait, 1930-ban pedig a KUT tárlatán szerepelt. Ez évben nyerte el a Szinyei Társaság Nemes Marcell-díját, és római ösztöndíjat is kapott. Közel háromnegyed évet töltött Rómában, ahol lelkesen festett. 1934-ben a KUT IV. tárlatán, 1936-ban pedig a Nemzeti Szalonban rendezett KUT bemutatóján szerepelt. 1938-ban az Ernst Múzeumban vett részt egy csoportos tárlaton. 1943-ban Erdélyben festett, három esztendővel később (1947-48) koreai, kínai, vietnámi tanulmányúton járt. Nyitottság, vitalitás, expresszív erő jellemezte hajlékony munkásságát. Kiváló technikai tudása és alkalmazkodó, mindent magába olvasztó készsége révén a legkülönbözőbb mesterek és irányzatok nyomták rá munkásságára bélyegüket. Eleinte a német expresszionizmus, majd római tartózkodása alatt a neoklasszicizmus hatott művészetére. 1926-ban Párizsban megérintette a szürrealizmus, folyóirataikat, kiáltványaikat az elsők között hozta haza Magyarországra. Hincz Gyula olyan alkotó volt, aki kezdettől fogva legnyitottabban reagált a képzőművészet minden újabb rezdülésére. Művészetére inkább a távol-keleti tusképek, s főként P. Picasso volt egy egész életre szóló hatással. Kiváló grafikus volt, számos rézkarcot készített, tus-, pasztell- és temperaképeket festett. Nagy anyaggal vett részt 1970-ben a Velencei Biennálén. 1971-ben nyílt kiállítása a Csók Galériában vietnámi témájú munkáiból. Kétszeres Munkácsy-díjas, Kossuth-díjas, Érdemes és Kiváló Művész. 1961-ben az első Miskolci Országos Grafikai Biennálén nagydíjjal jutalmazták. 1946-1949 között a budapesti Iparművészeti Főiskola, 1949-től 1963-ig pedig a Képzőművészeti Főiskola tanára volt. 1958-1963 között az Iparművészeti Főiskola igazgatójaként működött. 1983-ban négyszáz festményét Vác városának adományozta. Számos monumentális kompozíció (üvegmozaik, üvegablak, mozaik, gobelin, sgraffito) fűződik nevéhez. Próbálkozott kispalsztikával, égetett kerámiával is. (L. S.: Műv. 1968/4, Bajkay Éva, Éber, Műv. 1989/11/12)Magyar festők és grafikusok életrajzi lexikona I-II. Műgyűjtők és kereskedők kézikönyve

Az elsők egyike, akik Breton manifesztumát Pestre hozták. 1928-ban vett részt első alkalommal csoportkiállításon: a Munkácsy-céh I. kiállításán, val. az UME tárlatán. 1929-ben a berlini Sturm és a bp. -i Tamás Galéria rendezett műveiből kiállítást. 1930-ban a KUT tárlatán szerepelt. Ez évben nyerte el a Szinyei Társaság Nemes Marcell-díját, és római ösztöndíjat kapott. Közel háromnegyed évet töltött Rómában. 1934-ben a KUT IV. kiállításán, 1936-ban a Nemzeti Szalonban rendezett KUT tárlaton szerepelt, 1938-ban az Ernst Múzeumban vett részt egy csoportbemutatón. Eleinte a német expresszionizmus, majd hosszabb római tartózkodása alatt a neoklasszicizmus hatott művészetére. Olyan művész, aki kezdettől fogva legnyitottabban reagált a képzőművészet minden újabb rezdülésére. Nagy anyaggal vett részt 1970-ben a Velencei Biennálén. 1971-ben nyílt kiállítása a Csók Galériában vietnámi témájú munkáiból. Munkácsy-díjas és Kossuth-díjas, érdemes és kiváló művész. 1946-tól budapesti Iparművészeti Főiskola, 1949-től pedig Képzőművészeti Főiskola tanára volt. 1983-ban 400 festményét Vác városának adományozta. (L. S.: Műv. -1968/4, Éber)Magyar festők és grafikusok adattára
Rudnay Gyula és Vaszary János tanítványa volt. Sokoldalú művész, a húszas években Párizsban, majd Berlinben járt tanulmányúton, kiállítása is volt a Sturm rendezésében. A német expresszionizmus, majd hosszabb római tartózkodása alatt a neoklasszicizmus hatott művészetére. Olyan művész, aki kezdettől fogva legnyitottabban reagált a képzőművészet minden újabb rezdülésére. Nem az egymást váltó, vagy egymással párhuzamos stílusvonalak teszik munkásságát annyira színessé, változatossá, hanem merészsége, ahogyan a legkülönbözőbb műfajokban kezdeményezésre volt képes. Munkácsy- és Kossuth-díjas érdemes és kiváló művész. Igazi stílusa az expresszionizmus. Nagy anyaggal vett részt 1970-ben a Velencei Biennálén. Ugyancsak 1971-ben nyílt kiállítása a Csók Galériában vietnami témájú munkáiból. 1983-ban egész életművét fölvonultató - mindegy négyszáz festményét - Vác városának adományozta. - Irod.: Láncz Sándor: Hincz. Bp. 1972 - Bauer Jenő: Hincz Gyula. Bp. 1975. Művészeti lexikon I-IV.
Festő, grafikus, Munkácsy- és Kossuth-díjas, érdemes művész. 1922-29 között Rudnay Gyula és Vaszary János tanítványa volt a Képzőművészeti Főiskolán. 1928-ban Berlinben a Der Sturm rendezésében, 1929-ben Bp. -en a Tamás Galériában szerepelt először gyűjt. kiállításon. 1928-ban az UME, 1929-ben a KUT tagja lett. Párizsban (1926), Berlinben (1928) és Rómában (1930-31) járt tanulmányúton. 1938-ban az Ernst Múzeumban, 1943-ban a Tamás Galériában volt kiállítása. Kezdetben a német expresszionizmushoz közel álló stílusban dolgozott, majd a neoklasszicizmus is hatott művészetére. Érzékeny művészi egyénisége fogja össze az új és új problémákat megpendítő formakeresését. Az 50-es években történelmi és zsánertémák foglalkoztatták, majd később főként a monumentális díszítőfestészet vonzotta, mozaikokat (Várpalota), sgraffitót stb. tervezett. Legjelentősebb a kecskeméti Arany Homok Szálló falképe. Már a 30-as évektől kezdve foglalkozott díszletfestéssel és könyvillusztrálással. E tevékenysége különösen 1940-től vált jelentőssé (Villon, 1940; A. France: Nyársforgató Jakab, 1948; Móricz Zs.: Rózsa Sándor, 1952). Grafikája nagy hatással volt a fiatal magyar grafikusnemzedékre. Kiváló gobelitervező (Népek barátsága, 1956; Béke, 1958; Martinász, 1959). Szobrokat is mintáz. 1946-tól az Iparművészeti, 1949-től 1963-ig a Képzőművészeti Főiskola tanára, 1958-63 között az Iparművészeti Főiskola igazgatója volt. 1964-ben grafikáiból a Dürer-teremben nyílt kiállítás. Művészeti lexikon I-II.
Budapest 1904. ápr. 17. Ugyanitt a Képzőműv. Főiskolán Vaszary János tanítványa volt, azután Rómában képezte magát. 1929. a berlini Sturm és a budapesti Tamás Galéria rendezett műveiből gyűjt. kiállítást. Posztimpresszionista. Művész életrajzok kortárs magyar képzőművészek
1929-ben végzett Rudnay Gyula növendékeként a főiskolán. Tanulmányutakat tett Olasz- és Franciaországban, megfordult Vietnamban és Kínában. A két világháború között az UME és a KUT tagja. Gyűjteményes kiállítása volt 1928-ban Berlinben, 1929-ben és 1934-ben a Tamás Galériában, 1938-ban az Ernst Múzeumban, 1964-ben a Dürer Teremben, 1968-ban a Petőfi Irodalmi Múzeumban és Párizsban, 1971-ben a Budapesti Történeti Múzeumban, 1976-ban a Csontváry Teremben és a Nemzeti Galériában, 1980-ban a Vigadó Galériában. 1983-ban Vácott állandó kiállítása nyílt. Bemutatkozott ezentúl számos vidéki városban, több kelet és nyugat-európai fővárosban, az 1960-as és 1970-es Velencei Biennálékon. Az Iparművészeti Főiskola igazgatója (1946-1969) és a Képzőművészeti Főiskola tanára volt. 1952-ben és 1957-ben Munkácsy-díjat, 1958-ban Kossuth-díjat kapott; 1964-ben érdemes, 1968-ban kiváló művészi címmel, 1982-ben SZOT-díjjal tüntették ki. A Miskolci Grafikai Biennálé (1961) nagydíjasa. - Nyugtalan szellemű, kísérletező művész, aki több műfajban dolgozik. Bravúros tehetsége bizonyos eklektikát mutat, az irányzatokat azonban magához hasonlítja, átlényegíti. Rendkívüli vonal- és színkultúrája jól érvényesül grafikáiban és murális munkáiban. Művészi életműve egy szuverén szellemvilág szigorú rendjének kifejezője.

Magyar festők és grafikusok életrajzi lexikona I-II.
Festő. Budapesten Székely Bertalan keze alatt 1874-től 1879-ig a Mintarajz-tanodának volt a növendéke. Már akkor nagy feltűnést keltettek tanulmányrajzai. 1879-ben a magyar kormány ösztöndíjjal küldte a müncheni Képzőművészeti Akadémiára. Már 1881-ben bemutatta a Műcsarnokban a "Római dáridót". Három évvel később állami megrendelés foglalkoztatta Budapesten: József nádor nagy képmása. Ezt követően egészen más tárgyak kezdték érdekelni. A fővárosi zsúrok légkörében látott napvilágot 1888-ban az "Ellenállhatatlan" című képe, mellyel hatalmas sikereket aratott a Műcsarnokban. Ezt sűrűn követték hasonló, anekdotára, novellisztikus ötletre épített "szalon-életképei", amely képtípusnak ő volt Budapesten a legnépszerűbb, s igen keresett képviselője. Ezek festésében aztán elsenyvedt eredetileg sokat ígérő tehetsége s midőn maga ez a képtípus is hitelét kezdte veszíteni, szerzőjét csaknem teljesen elfelejtették. 1903-ban gyűjteményes kiállítása volt a Nemzeti Szalonban. Bastien-Lepage stílusában festette műveit. Számos képe a Magyar Nemzeti Galéria és a Magyar Történelmi Képtár tulajdona. (L-MMM, Éber, ML)Magyar festők és grafikusok adattára
Budapesten és Münchenben tanult. Anekdótázó, ún. "szalonéletképeket" festett Bastien-Lepage stílusában. Több művét (A féltékeny, Nagyszebeni csata, Párbaj után, Stefi bácsi és Virradat) a Magyar Nemzeti Galéria, önarcképét a Magyar Történelmi Képcsarnok őrzi. - Irod.: Rózsa Miklós: Margitay Tihamér élete és művészete. Bp., 1903. Magyar festők és grafikusok életrajzi lexikona I-II. Műgyűjtők és kereskedők kézikönyve
Festő. Budapesten és Münchenben végezte tanulmányait s első nagyobb sikerét az "Ellenállhatatlan" c. képével aratta a Műcsarnokban. Ezt sűrűn követték hasonló, anekdótára, novellisztikus ötletre épített "szalon-életképei", amely képtípusnak ő volt Budapesten a legnépszerűbb, igen keresett művelője. Ezek festésétben aztán elsenyvedt eredetileg sokat ígérő tehetsége s midőn maga ez a képtípus is hitelét kezdte veszíteni, szerzőjét csaknem teljesen elfelejtették. 1903-ban gyűjteményes tárlata volt a Nemzeti Szalonban. Bastien-Lepage stílusában festette műveit. Számos műve a MNG és a MTK tulajdona. (Éber, ML)Művészeti lexikon I-IV.
Festő. Bp. -en és Münchenben tanult s első nagyobb sikerét az Ellenállhatatlan c. képével aratta. Ezt sűrű egymásutánban követték anekdotázó és humoros életképei, udvarló, komikus ficsúrokról, negédesen szabódó úrilánykákról, a középosztály életének komikus társadalmi momentumairól. Többnyire a Műcsarnokban kiállított képei, melyeket a korabeli sajtó "szalon-életképek"-nek nevezett, sokáig óriási sikert arattak a közönség körében, a divat változásával azonban elvesztették népszerűségüket. 1903-ban gyűjt. kiállítása volt a Nemzeti Szalonban. Több művét a Nemz. Gal., Önarcképét a Magyar Történelmi Képcsarnok őrzi. Műveinek nagy részét jobb tárgyválasztásához méltóan rendkívül finom, Bastien-Lepage-ra emlékeztető naturalista technikával festette meg. - Irod. Rózsa M.: M. élete és művészete. Bp., 1903.

Festési módja egyébként a müncheni realizmust, textúra-hatás keresését, aszfaltból való, kiélezett technikájú festést képviselte.

Magyar festők és grafikusok életrajzi lexikona I-II.
Festő. 1962-ben végzett a Magyar Képzőművészeti Főiskolán. Kmetty János és Domanovszky Endre tanítványa volt. Csoportos (Ernst Múzeum, Budapest Galéria, Kempinski Galéria, Brüsszel, Párizs) és egyéni (Műcsarnok, Barcsay Terem, Vigadó Galéria, Szolnok, Heves) kiállításokon szerepelt. 1986-96 között rendszeresen részt vett a Szegedi Festészeti Triennálékon. Tagja a Magyar Szépmíves Társaságnak. 1969-97 között a Képzőművészeti Főiskolán tanított alakrajzot és festészetet. Főleg alakos kompozíciókat fest. Néhány alkotásán a XVII. századi holland mesterek - elsősorban Adriaen Brouwer - kompozícióit gondolja tovább. A képfelületen néha valós tárgyakat is rögzít. Festészetének sajátossága: erős színvilág, expresszivitás. Szívesen fest olyan témájú kompozíciókat, amelyeken megragadja a mozgás dinamizmusát. Ilyen jellegű képein is mesterien állítja a színeket a jelent szolgálatába. Díjak: Derkovits-ösztöndíj; az FKS kiállítás I. díja; Stúdió-díj; az Ezüstgerely-pályázat fődíja; a szolnoki IV. Képzőművészeti Triennále díja; a szegedi Nyári Tárlat fődíja; a IX. Képzőművészeti Triennále Jász-Kun-Szolnok Megyei Önkormányzatának díja; az V. ker. önkormányzati díja. Műveit őrzi a Magyar Nemzeti Galéria, a szolnoki Damjanich J. Múzeum, a szombathelyi Savaria Múzeum és a kaposvári Rippl-Rónai J. Múzeum. (Sz.

Festő. A fővárosi Képzőművészeti Főiskolán Kmetty János, Fónyi Géza és Domanovszky Endre tanítványa volt, később ugyanitt hét évig működött, mint tanársegéd. 1962 óta szerepel hazai és külhoni rendezvényeken. 1967-ben kiállított a párizsi Ifjúsági Biennálén. 1964-1967 k. Derkovits-ösztöndíjban részesült. 1966-ban és 1969-ben díjakat nyert a Stúdió rendezvényein. Dinamikus, erőteljes színek, változatos témaválasztás, oldott képszerkesztés jellemzi műveit. Expresszív, a festői eszközök kifejezőerejére épített alkotásain többnyire a hazai táj, valamint csendéleti, enteriőr és figurális témák foglalkoztatják. Sok műve szerepel különböző közgyűjteményekben. (Műv.: 1976/5, MÉ)Művész életrajzok kortárs magyar képzőművészek

The Uninhabitable Earth
Famine, economic collapse, a sun that cooks us: What climate change could wreak — sooner than you think.

By David Wallace-Wells

In the jungles of Costa Rica, where humidity routinely tops 90 percent, simply moving around outside when it’s over 105 degrees Fahrenheit would be lethal. And the effect would be fast: Within a few hours, a human body would be cooked to death from both inside and out. Fossils by Heartless Machine
July 9, 2017

I. ‘Doomsday’
Peering beyond scientific reticence.

It is, I promise, worse than you think. If your anxiety about global warming is dominated by fears of sea-level rise, you are barely scratching the surface of what terrors are possible, even within the lifetime of a teenager today. And yet the swelling seas — and the cities they will drown — have so dominated the picture of global warming, and so overwhelmed our capacity for climate panic, that they have occluded our perception of other threats, many much closer at hand. Rising oceans are bad, in fact very bad; but fleeing the coastline will not be enough.

Indeed, absent a significant adjustment to how billions of humans conduct their lives, parts of the Earth will likely become close to uninhabitable, and other parts horrifically inhospitable, as soon as the end of this century.

Even when we train our eyes on climate change, we are unable to comprehend its scope. This past winter, a string of days 60 and 70 degrees warmer than normal baked the North Pole, melting the permafrost that encased Norway’s Svalbard seed vault — a global food bank nicknamed “Doomsday,” designed to ensure that our agriculture survives any catastrophe, and which appeared to have been flooded by climate change less than ten years after being built.

The Doomsday vault is fine, for now: The structure has been secured and the seeds are safe. But treating the episode as a parable of impending flooding missed the more important news. Until recently, permafrost was not a major concern of climate scientists, because, as the name suggests, it was soil that stayed permanently frozen. But Arctic permafrost contains 1.8 trillion tons of carbon, more than twice as much as is currently suspended in the Earth’s atmosphere. When it thaws and is released, that carbon may evaporate as methane, which is 34 times as powerful a greenhouse-gas warming blanket as carbon dioxide when judged on the timescale of a century; when judged on the timescale of two decades, it is 86 times as powerful. In other words, we have, trapped in Arctic permafrost, twice as much carbon as is currently wrecking the atmosphere of the planet, all of it scheduled to be released at a date that keeps getting moved up, partially in the form of a gas that multiplies its warming power 86 times over.

Maybe you know that already — there are alarming stories in the news every day, like those, last month, that seemed to suggest satellite data showed the globe warming since 1998 more than twice as fast as scientists had thought (in fact, the underlying story was considerably less alarming than the headlines). Or the news from Antarctica this past May, when a crack in an ice shelf grew 11 miles in six days, then kept going; the break now has just three miles to go — by the time you read this, it may already have met the open water, where it will drop into the sea one of the biggest icebergs ever, a process known poetically as “calving.”


Watch: How Climate Change Is Creating More Powerful Hurricanes

But no matter how well-informed you are, you are surely not alarmed enough. Over the past decades, our culture has gone apocalyptic with zombie movies and Mad Max dystopias, perhaps the collective result of displaced climate anxiety, and yet when it comes to contemplating real-world warming dangers, we suffer from an incredible failure of imagination. The reasons for that are many: the timid language of scientific probabilities, which the climatologist James Hansen once called “scientific reticence” in a paper chastising scientists for editing their own observations so conscientiously that they failed to communicate how dire the threat really was; the fact that the country is dominated by a group of technocrats who believe any problem can be solved and an opposing culture that doesn’t even see warming as a problem worth addressing; the way that climate denialism has made scientists even more cautious in offering speculative warnings; the simple speed of change and, also, its slowness, such that we are only seeing effects now of warming from decades past; our uncertainty about uncertainty, which the climate writer Naomi Oreskes in particular has suggested stops us from preparing as though anything worse than a median outcome were even possible; the way we assume climate change will hit hardest elsewhere, not everywhere; the smallness (two degrees) and largeness (1.8 trillion tons) and abstractness (400 parts per million) of the numbers; the discomfort of considering a problem that is very difficult, if not impossible, to solve; the altogether incomprehensible scale of that problem, which amounts to the prospect of our own annihilation; simple fear. But aversion arising from fear is a form of denial, too.

In between scientific reticence and science fiction is science itself. This article is the result of dozens of interviews and exchanges with climatologists and researchers in related fields and reflects hundreds of scientific papers on the subject of climate change. What follows is not a series of predictions of what will happen — that will be determined in large part by the much-less-certain science of human response. Instead, it is a portrait of our best understanding of where the planet is heading absent aggressive action. It is unlikely that all of these warming scenarios will be fully realized, largely because the devastation along the way will shake our complacency. But those scenarios, and not the present climate, are the baseline. In fact, they are our schedule.

The present tense of climate change — the destruction we’ve already baked into our future — is horrifying enough. Most people talk as if Miami and Bangladesh still have a chance of surviving; most of the scientists I spoke with assume we’ll lose them within the century, even if we stop burning fossil fuel in the next decade. Two degrees of warming used to be considered the threshold of catastrophe: tens of millions of climate refugees unleashed upon an unprepared world. Now two degrees is our goal, per the Paris climate accords, and experts give us only slim odds of hitting it. The U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change issues serial reports, often called the “gold standard” of climate research; the most recent one projects us to hit four degrees of warming by the beginning of the next century, should we stay the present course. But that’s just a median projection. The upper end of the probability curve runs as high as eight degrees — and the authors still haven’t figured out how to deal with that permafrost melt. The IPCC reports also don’t fully account for the albedo effect (less ice means less reflected and more absorbed sunlight, hence more warming); more cloud cover (which traps heat); or the dieback of forests and other flora (which extract carbon from the atmosphere). Each of these promises to accelerate warming, and the history of the planet shows that temperature can shift as much as five degrees Celsius within thirteen years. The last time the planet was even four degrees warmer, Peter Brannen points out in The Ends of the World, his new history of the planet’s major extinction events, the oceans were hundreds of feet higher.*

The Earth has experienced five mass extinctions before the one we are living through now, each so complete a slate-wiping of the evolutionary record it functioned as a resetting of the planetary clock, and many climate scientists will tell you they are the best analog for the ecological future we are diving headlong into. Unless you are a teenager, you probably read in your high-school textbooks that these extinctions were the result of asteroids. In fact, all but the one that killed the dinosaurs were caused by climate change produced by greenhouse gas. The most notorious was 252 million years ago; it began when carbon warmed the planet by five degrees, accelerated when that warming triggered the release of methane in the Arctic, and ended with 97 percent of all life on Earth dead. We are currently adding carbon to the atmosphere at a considerably faster rate; by most estimates, at least ten times faster. The rate is accelerating. This is what Stephen Hawking had in mind when he said, this spring, that the species needs to colonize other planets in the next century to survive, and what drove Elon Musk, last month, to unveil his plans to build a Mars habitat in 40 to 100 years. These are nonspecialists, of course, and probably as inclined to irrational panic as you or I. But the many sober-minded scientists I interviewed over the past several months — the most credentialed and tenured in the field, few of them inclined to alarmism and many advisers to the IPCC who nevertheless criticize its conservatism — have quietly reached an apocalyptic conclusion, too: No plausible program of emissions reductions alone can prevent climate disaster.

Over the past few decades, the term “Anthropocene” has climbed out of academic discourse and into the popular imagination — a name given to the geologic era we live in now, and a way to signal that it is a new era, defined on the wall chart of deep history by human intervention. One problem with the term is that it implies a conquest of nature (and even echoes the biblical “dominion”). And however sanguine you might be about the proposition that we have already ravaged the natural world, which we surely have, it is another thing entirely to consider the possibility that we have only provoked it, engineering first in ignorance and then in denial a climate system that will now go to war with us for many centuries, perhaps until it destroys us. That is what Wallace Smith Broecker, the avuncular oceanographer who coined the term “global warming,” means when he calls the planet an “angry beast.” You could also go with “war machine.” Each day we arm it more.

II. Heat Death

Humans, like all mammals, are heat engines; surviving means having to continually cool off, like panting dogs. For that, the temperature needs to be low enough for the air to act as a kind of refrigerant, drawing heat off the skin so the engine can keep pumping. At seven degrees of warming, that would become impossible for large portions of the planet’s equatorial band, and especially the tropics, where humidity adds to the problem; in the jungles of Costa Rica, for instance, where humidity routinely tops 90 percent, simply moving around outside when it’s over 105 degrees Fahrenheit would be lethal. And the effect would be fast: Within a few hours, a human body would be cooked to death from both inside and out.

Climate-change skeptics point out that the planet has warmed and cooled many times before, but the climate window that has allowed for human life is very narrow, even by the standards of planetary history. At 11 or 12 degrees of warming, more than half the world’s population, as distributed today, would die of direct heat. Things almost certainly won’t get that hot this century, though models of unabated emissions do bring us that far eventually. This century, and especially in the tropics, the pain points will pinch much more quickly even than an increase of seven degrees. The key factor is something called wet-bulb temperature, which is a term of measurement as home-laboratory-kit as it sounds: the heat registered on a thermometer wrapped in a damp sock as it’s swung around in the air (since the moisture evaporates from a sock more quickly in dry air, this single number reflects both heat and humidity). At present, most regions reach a wet-bulb maximum of 26 or 27 degrees Celsius; the true red line for habitability is 35 degrees. What is called heat stress comes much sooner.

Actually, we’re about there already. Since 1980, the planet has experienced a 50-fold increase in the number of places experiencing dangerous or extreme heat; a bigger increase is to come. The five warmest summers in Europe since 1500 have all occurred since 2002, and soon, the IPCC warns, simply being outdoors that time of year will be unhealthy for much of the globe. Even if we meet the Paris goals of two degrees warming, cities like Karachi and Kolkata will become close to uninhabitable, annually encountering deadly heat waves like those that crippled them in 2015. At four degrees, the deadly European heat wave of 2003, which killed as many as 2,000 people a day, will be a normal summer. At six, according to an assessment focused only on effects within the U.S. from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, summer labor of any kind would become impossible in the lower Mississippi Valley, and everybody in the country east of the Rockies would be under more heat stress than anyone, anywhere, in the world today. As Joseph Romm has put it in his authoritative primer Climate Change: What Everyone Needs to Know, heat stress in New York City would exceed that of present-day Bahrain, one of the planet’s hottest spots, and the temperature in Bahrain “would induce hyperthermia in even sleeping humans.” The high-end IPCC estimate, remember, is two degrees warmer still. By the end of the century, the World Bank has estimated, the coolest months in tropical South America, Africa, and the Pacific are likely to be warmer than the warmest months at the end of the 20th century. Air-conditioning can help but will ultimately only add to the carbon problem; plus, the climate-controlled malls of the Arab emirates aside, it is not remotely plausible to wholesale air-condition all the hottest parts of the world, many of them also the poorest. And indeed, the crisis will be most dramatic across the Middle East and Persian Gulf, where in 2015 the heat index registered temperatures as high as 163 degrees Fahrenheit. As soon as several decades from now, the hajj will become physically impossible for the 2 million Muslims who make the pilgrimage each year.

It is not just the hajj, and it is not just Mecca; heat is already killing us. In the sugarcane region of El Salvador, as much as one-fifth of the population has chronic kidney disease, including over a quarter of the men, the presumed result of dehydration from working the fields they were able to comfortably harvest as recently as two decades ago. With dialysis, which is expensive, those with kidney failure can expect to live five years; without it, life expectancy is in the weeks. Of course, heat stress promises to pummel us in places other than our kidneys, too. As I type that sentence, in the California desert in mid-June, it is 121 degrees outside my door. It is not a record high.

III. The End of Food
Praying for cornfields in the tundra.

Climates differ and plants vary, but the basic rule for staple cereal crops grown at optimal temperature is that for every degree of warming, yields decline by 10 percent. Some estimates run as high as 15 or even 17 percent. Which means that if the planet is five degrees warmer at the end of the century, we may have as many as 50 percent more people to feed and 50 percent less grain to give them. And proteins are worse: It takes 16 calories of grain to produce just a single calorie of hamburger meat, butchered from a cow that spent its life polluting the climate with methane farts.

Pollyannaish plant physiologists will point out that the cereal-crop math applies only to those regions already at peak growing temperature, and they are right — theoretically, a warmer climate will make it easier to grow corn in Greenland. But as the pathbreaking work by Rosamond Naylor and David Battisti has shown, the tropics are already too hot to efficiently grow grain, and those places where grain is produced today are already at optimal growing temperature — which means even a small warming will push them down the slope of declining productivity. And you can’t easily move croplands north a few hundred miles, because yields in places like remote Canada and Russia are limited by the quality of soil there; it takes many centuries for the planet to produce optimally fertile dirt.

Drought might be an even bigger problem than heat, with some of the world’s most arable land turning quickly to desert. Precipitation is notoriously hard to model, yet predictions for later this century are basically unanimous: unprecedented droughts nearly everywhere food is today produced. By 2080, without dramatic reductions in emissions, southern Europe will be in permanent extreme drought, much worse than the American dust bowl ever was. The same will be true in Iraq and Syria and much of the rest of the Middle East; some of the most densely populated parts of Australia, Africa, and South America; and the breadbasket regions of China. None of these places, which today supply much of the world’s food, will be reliable sources of any. As for the original dust bowl: The droughts in the American plains and Southwest would not just be worse than in the 1930s, a 2015 NASA study predicted, but worse than any droughts in a thousand years — and that includes those that struck between 1100 and 1300, which “dried up all the rivers East of the Sierra Nevada mountains” and may have been responsible for the death of the Anasazi civilization.

Remember, we do not live in a world without hunger as it is. Far from it: Most estimates put the number of undernourished at 800 million globally. In case you haven’t heard, this spring has already brought an unprecedented quadruple famine to Africa and the Middle East; the U.N. has warned that separate starvation events in Somalia, South Sudan, Nigeria, and Yemen could kill 20 million this year alone.

IV. Climate Plagues
What happens when the bubonic ice melts?

Rock, in the right spot, is a record of planetary history, eras as long as millions of years flattened by the forces of geological time into strata with amplitudes of just inches, or just an inch, or even less. Ice works that way, too, as a climate ledger, but it is also frozen history, some of which can be reanimated when unfrozen. There are now, trapped in Arctic ice, diseases that have not circulated in the air for millions of years — in some cases, since before humans were around to encounter them. Which means our immune systems would have no idea how to fight back when those prehistoric plagues emerge from the ice.

The Arctic also stores terrifying bugs from more recent times. In Alaska, already, researchers have discovered remnants of the 1918 flu that infected as many as 500 million and killed as many as 100 million — about 5 percent of the world’s population and almost six times as many as had died in the world war for which the pandemic served as a kind of gruesome capstone. As the BBC reported in May, scientists suspect smallpox and the bubonic plague are trapped in Siberian ice, too — an abridged history of devastating human sickness, left out like egg salad in the Arctic sun.

Experts caution that many of these organisms won’t actually survive the thaw and point to the fastidious lab conditions under which they have already reanimated several of them — the 32,000-year-old “extremophile” bacteria revived in 2005, an 8 million-year-old bug brought back to life in 2007, the 3.5 million–year–old one a Russian scientist self-injected just out of curiosity — to suggest that those are necessary conditions for the return of such ancient plagues. But already last year, a boy was killed and 20 others infected by anthrax released when retreating permafrost exposed the frozen carcass of a reindeer killed by the bacteria at least 75 years earlier; 2,000 present-day reindeer were infected, too, carrying and spreading the disease beyond the tundra.

What concerns epidemiologists more than ancient diseases are existing scourges relocated, rewired, or even re-evolved by warming. The first effect is geographical. Before the early-modern period, when adventuring sailboats accelerated the mixing of peoples and their bugs, human provinciality was a guard against pandemic. Today, even with globalization and the enormous intermingling of human populations, our ecosystems are mostly stable, and this functions as another limit, but global warming will scramble those ecosystems and help disease trespass those limits as surely as Cortés did. You don’t worry much about dengue or malaria if you are living in Maine or France. But as the tropics creep northward and mosquitoes migrate with them, you will. You didn’t much worry about Zika a couple of years ago, either.

As it happens, Zika may also be a good model of the second worrying effect — disease mutation. One reason you hadn’t heard about Zika until recently is that it had been trapped in Uganda; another is that it did not, until recently, appear to cause birth defects. Scientists still don’t entirely understand what happened, or what they missed. But there are things we do know for sure about how climate affects some diseases: Malaria, for instance, thrives in hotter regions not just because the mosquitoes that carry it do, too, but because for every degree increase in temperature, the parasite reproduces ten times faster. Which is one reason that the World Bank estimates that by 2050, 5.2 billion people will be reckoning with it.

V. Unbreathable Air
A rolling death smog that suffocates millions.

Our lungs need oxygen, but that is only a fraction of what we breathe. The fraction of carbon dioxide is growing: It just crossed 400 parts per million, and high-end estimates extrapolating from current trends suggest it will hit 1,000 ppm by 2100. At that concentration, compared to the air we breathe now, human cognitive ability declines by 21 percent.

Other stuff in the hotter air is even scarier, with small increases in pollution capable of shortening life spans by ten years. The warmer the planet gets, the more ozone forms, and by mid-century, Americans will likely suffer a 70 percent increase in unhealthy ozone smog, the National Center for Atmospheric Research has projected. By 2090, as many as 2 billion people globally will be breathing air above the WHO “safe” level; one paper last month showed that, among other effects, a pregnant mother’s exposure to ozone raises the child’s risk of autism (as much as tenfold, combined with other environmental factors). Which does make you think again about the autism epidemic in West Hollywood.

Already, more than 10,000 people die each day from the small particles emitted from fossil-fuel burning; each year, 339,000 people die from wildfire smoke, in part because climate change has extended forest-fire season (in the U.S., it’s increased by 78 days since 1970). By 2050, according to the U.S. Forest Service, wildfires will be twice as destructive as they are today; in some places, the area burned could grow fivefold. What worries people even more is the effect that would have on emissions, especially when the fires ravage forests arising out of peat. Peatland fires in Indonesia in 1997, for instance, added to the global CO2 release by up to 40 percent, and more burning only means more warming only means more burning. There is also the terrifying possibility that rain forests like the Amazon, which in 2010 suffered its second “hundred-year drought” in the space of five years, could dry out enough to become vulnerable to these kinds of devastating, rolling forest fires — which would not only expel enormous amounts of carbon into the atmosphere but also shrink the size of the forest. That is especially bad because the Amazon alone provides 20 percent of our oxygen.

Then there are the more familiar forms of pollution. In 2013, melting Arctic ice remodeled Asian weather patterns, depriving industrial China of the natural ventilation systems it had come to depend on, which blanketed much of the country’s north in an unbreathable smog. Literally unbreathable. A metric called the Air Quality Index categorizes the risks and tops out at the 301-to-500 range, warning of “serious aggravation of heart or lung disease and premature mortality in persons with cardiopulmonary disease and the elderly” and, for all others, “serious risk of respiratory effects”; at that level, “everyone should avoid all outdoor exertion.” The Chinese “airpocalypse” of 2013 peaked at what would have been an Air Quality Index of over 800. That year, smog was responsible for a third of all deaths in the country.

VI. Perpetual War
The violence baked into heat.

Climatologists are very careful when talking about Syria. They want you to know that while climate change did produce a drought that contributed to civil war, it is not exactly fair to saythat the conflict is the result of warming; next door, for instance, Lebanon suffered the same crop failures. But researchers like Marshall Burke and Solomon Hsiang have managed to quantify some of the non-obvious relationships between temperature and violence: For every half-degree of warming, they say, societies will see between a 10 and 20 percent increase in the likelihood of armed conflict. In climate science, nothing is simple, but the arithmetic is harrowing: A planet five degrees warmer would have at least half again as many wars as we do today. Overall, social conflict could more than double this century.

This is one reason that, as nearly every climate scientist I spoke to pointed out, the U.S. military is obsessed with climate change: The drowning of all American Navy bases by sea-level rise is trouble enough, but being the world’s policeman is quite a bit harder when the crime rate doubles. Of course, it’s not just Syria where climate has contributed to conflict. Some speculate that the elevated level of strife across the Middle East over the past generation reflects the pressures of global warming — a hypothesis all the more cruel considering that warming began accelerating when the industrialized world extracted and then burned the region’s oil.

What accounts for the relationship between climate and conflict? Some of it comes down to agriculture and economics; a lot has to do with forced migration, already at a record high, with at least 65 million displaced people wandering the planet right now. But there is also the simple fact of individual irritability. Heat increases municipal crime rates, and swearing on social media, and the likelihood that a major-league pitcher, coming to the mound after his teammate has been hit by a pitch, will hit an opposing batter in retaliation. And the arrival of air-conditioning in the developed world, in the middle of the past century, did little to solve the problem of the summer crime wave.

VII. Permanent Economic Collapse
Dismal capitalism in a half-poorer world.

The murmuring mantra of global neoliberalism, which prevailed between the end of the Cold War and the onset of the Great Recession, is that economic growth would save us from anything and everything.
But in the aftermath of the 2008 crash, a growing number of historians studying what they call “fossil capitalism” have begun to suggest that the entire history of swift economic growth, which began somewhat suddenly in the 18th century, is not the result of innovation or trade or the dynamics of global capitalism but simply our discovery of fossil fuels and all their raw power — a onetime injection of new “value” into a system that had previously been characterized by global subsistence living. Before fossil fuels, nobody lived better than their parents or grandparents or ancestors from 500 years before, except in the immediate aftermath of a great plague like the Black Death, which allowed the lucky survivors to gobble up the resources liberated by mass graves. After we’ve burned all the fossil fuels, these scholars suggest, perhaps we will return to a “steady state” global economy. Of course, that onetime injection has a devastating long-term cost: climate change.

The most exciting research on the economics of warming has also come from Hsiang and his colleagues, who are not historians of fossil capitalism but who offer some very bleak analysis of their own: Every degree Celsius of warming costs, on average, 1.2 percent of GDP (an enormous number, considering we count growth in the low single digits as “strong”). This is the sterling work in the field, and their median projection is for a 23 percent loss in per capita earning globally by the end of this century (resulting from changes in agriculture, crime, storms, energy, mortality, and labor).
Tracing the shape of the probability curve is even scarier: There is a 12 percent chance that climate change will reduce global output by more than 50 percent by 2100, they say, and a 51 percent chance that it lowers per capita GDP by 20 percent or more by then, unless emissions decline. By comparison, the Great Recession lowered global GDP by about 6 percent, in a onetime shock; Hsiang and his colleagues estimate a one-in-eight chance of an ongoing and irreversible effect by the end of the century that is eight times worse.

The scale of that economic devastation is hard to comprehend, but you can start by imagining what the world would look like today with an economy half as big, which would produce only half as much value, generating only half as much to offer the workers of the world. It makes the grounding of flights out of heat-stricken Phoenix last month seem like pathetically small economic potatoes. And, among other things, it makes the idea of postponing government action on reducing emissions and relying solely on growth and technology to solve the problem an absurd business calculation.
Every round-trip ticket on flights from New York to London, keep in mind, costs the Arctic three more square meters of ice.

VIII. Poisoned Oceans
Sulfide burps off the skeleton coast.

That the sea will become a killer is a given. Barring a radical reduction of emissions, we will see at least four feet of sea-level rise and possibly ten by the end of the century. A third of the world’s major cities are on the coast, not to mention its power plants, ports, navy bases, farmlands, fisheries, river deltas, marshlands, and rice-paddy empires, and even those above ten feet will flood much more easily, and much more regularly, if the water gets that high. At least 600 million people live within ten meters of sea level today.

But the drowning of those homelands is just the start. At present, more than a third of the world’s carbon is sucked up by the oceans — thank God, or else we’d have that much more warming already. But the result is what’s called “ocean acidification,” which, on its own, may add a half a degree to warming this century. It is also already burning through the planet’s water basins — you may remember these as the place where life arose in the first place. You have probably heard of “coral bleaching” — that is, coral dying — which is very bad news, because reefs support as much as a quarter of all marine life and supply food for half a billion people. Ocean acidification will fry fish populations directly, too, though scientists aren’t yet sure how to predict the effects on the stuff we haul out of the ocean to eat; they do know that in acid waters, oysters and mussels will struggle to grow their shells, and that when the pH of human blood drops as much as the oceans’ pH has over the past generation, it induces seizures, comas, and sudden death.

That isn’t all that ocean acidification can do. Carbon absorption can initiate a feedback loop in which underoxygenated waters breed different kinds of microbes that turn the water still more “anoxic,” first in deep ocean “dead zones,” then gradually up toward the surface. There, the small fish die out, unable to breathe, which means oxygen-eating bacteria thrive, and the feedback loop doubles back. This process, in which dead zones grow like cancers, choking off marine life and wiping out fisheries, is already quite advanced in parts of the Gulf of Mexico and just off Namibia, where hydrogen sulfide is bubbling out of the sea along a thousand-mile stretch of land known as the “Skeleton Coast.” The name originally referred to the detritus of the whaling industry, but today it’s more apt than ever. Hydrogen sulfide is so toxic that evolution has trained us to recognize the tiniest, safest traces of it, which is why our noses are so exquisitely skilled at registering flatulence. Hydrogen sulfide is also the thing that finally did us in that time 97 percent of all life on Earth died, once all the feedback loops had been triggered and the circulating jet streams of a warmed ocean ground to a halt — it’s the planet’s preferred gas for a natural holocaust. Gradually, the ocean’s dead zones spread, killing off marine species that had dominated the oceans for hundreds of millions of years, and the gas the inert waters gave off into the atmosphere poisoned everything on land. Plants, too. It was millions of years before the oceans recovered.

IX. The Great Filter
Our present eeriness cannot last.

So why can’t we see it? In his recent book-length essay The Great Derangement, the Indian novelist Amitav Ghosh wonders why global warming and natural disaster haven’t become major subjects of contemporary fiction — why we don’t seem able to imagine climate catastrophe, and why we haven’t yet had a spate of novels in the genre he basically imagines into half-existence and names “the environmental uncanny.” “Consider, for example, the stories that congeal around questions like, ‘Where were you when the Berlin Wall fell?’ or ‘Where were you on 9/11?’ ” he writes. “Will it ever be possible to ask, in the same vein, ‘Where were you at 400 ppm?’ or ‘Where were you when the Larsen B ice shelf broke up?’ ” His answer: Probably not, because the dilemmas and dramas of climate change are simply incompatible with the kinds of stories we tell ourselves about ourselves, especially in novels, which tend to emphasize the journey of an individual conscience rather than the poisonous miasma of social fate.

Surely this blindness will not last — the world we are about to inhabit will not permit it. In a six-degree-warmer world, the Earth’s ecosystem will boil with so many natural disasters that we will just start calling them “weather”: a constant swarm of out-of-control typhoons and tornadoes and floods and droughts, the planet assaulted regularly with climate events that not so long ago destroyed whole civilizations. The strongest hurricanes will come more often, and we’ll have to invent new categories with which to describe them; tornadoes will grow longer and wider and strike much more frequently, and hail rocks will quadruple in size. Humans used to watch the weather to prophesy the future; going forward, we will see in its wrath the vengeance of the past. Early naturalists talked often about “deep time” — the perception they had, contemplating the grandeur of this valley or that rock basin, of the profound slowness of nature. What lies in store for us is more like what the Victorian anthropologists identified as “dreamtime,” or “everywhen”: the semi-mythical experience, described by Aboriginal Australians, of encountering, in the present moment, an out-of-time past, when ancestors, heroes, and demigods crowded an epic stage. You can find it already watching footage of an iceberg collapsing into the sea — a feeling of history happening all at once.

It is. Many people perceive climate change as a sort of moral and economic debt, accumulated since the beginning of the Industrial Revolution and now come due after several centuries — a helpful perspective, in a way, since it is the carbon-burning processes that began in 18th-century England that lit the fuse of everything that followed. But more than half of the carbon humanity has exhaled into the atmosphere in its entire history has been emitted in just the past three decades; since the end of World War II, the figure is 85 percent. Which means that, in the length of a single generation, global warming has brought us to the brink of planetary catastrophe, and that the story of the industrial world’s kamikaze mission is also the story of a single lifetime. My father’s, for instance: born in 1938, among his first memories the news of Pearl Harbor and the mythic Air Force of the propaganda films that followed, films that doubled as advertisements for imperial-American industrial might; and among his last memories the coverage of the desperate signing of the Paris climate accords on cable news, ten weeks before he died of lung cancer last July. Or my mother’s: born in 1945, to German Jews fleeing the smokestacks through which their relatives were incinerated, now enjoying her 72nd year in an American commodity paradise, a paradise supported by the supply chains of an industrialized developing world. She has been smoking for 57 of those years, unfiltered.

Or the scientists’. Some of the men who first identified a changing climate (and given the generation, those who became famous were men) are still alive; a few are even still working. Wally Broecker is 84 years old and drives to work at the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory across the Hudson every day from the Upper West Side. Like most of those who first raised the alarm, he believes that no amount of emissions reduction alone can meaningfully help avoid disaster. Instead, he puts his faith in carbon capture — untested technology to extract carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, which Broecker estimates will cost at least several trillion dollars — and various forms of “geoengineering,” the catchall name for a variety of moon-shot technologies far-fetched enough that many climate scientists prefer to regard them as dreams, or nightmares, from science fiction. He is especially focused on what’s called the aerosol approach — dispersing so much sulfur dioxide into the atmosphere that when it converts to sulfuric acid, it will cloud a fifth of the horizon and reflect back 2 percent of the sun’s rays, buying the planet at least a little wiggle room, heat-wise. “Of course, that would make our sunsets very red, would bleach the sky, would make more acid rain,” he says. “But you have to look at the magnitude of the problem. You got to watch that you don’t say the giant problem shouldn’t be solved because the solution causes some smaller problems.” He won’t be around to see that, he told me. “But in your lifetime …”

Jim Hansen is another member of this godfather generation. Born in 1941, he became a climatologist at the University of Iowa, developed the groundbreaking “Zero Model” for projecting climate change, and later became the head of climate research at NASA, only to leave under pressure when, while still a federal employee, he filed a lawsuit against the federal government charging inaction on warming (along the way he got arrested a few times for protesting, too). The lawsuit, which is brought by a collective called Our Children’s Trust and is often described as “kids versus climate change,” is built on an appeal to the equal-protection clause, namely, that in failing to take action on warming, the government is violating it by imposing massive costs on future generations; it is scheduled to be heard this winter in Oregon district court. Hansen has recently given up on solving the climate problem with a carbon tax alone, which had been his preferred approach, and has set about calculating the total cost of the additional measure of extracting carbon from the atmosphere.

Hansen began his career studying Venus, which was once a very Earth-like planet with plenty of life-supporting water before runaway climate change rapidly transformed it into an arid and uninhabitable sphere enveloped in an unbreathable gas; he switched to studying our planet by 30, wondering why he should be squinting across the solar system to explore rapid environmental change when he could see it all around him on the planet he was standing on. “When we wrote our first paper on this, in 1981,” he told me, “I remember saying to one of my co-authors, ‘This is going to be very interesting. Sometime during our careers, we’re going to see these things beginning to happen.’ ”

Several of the scientists I spoke with proposed global warming as the solution to Fermi’s famous paradox, which asks, If the universe is so big, then why haven’t we encountered any other intelligent life in it? The answer, they suggested, is that the natural life span of a civilization may be only several thousand years, and the life span of an industrial civilization perhaps only several hundred. In a universe that is many billions of years old, with star systems separated as much by time as by space, civilizations might emerge and develop and burn themselves up simply too fast to ever find one another. Peter Ward, a charismatic paleontologist among those responsible for discovering that the planet’s mass extinctions were caused by greenhouse gas, calls this the “Great Filter”: “Civilizations rise, but there’s an environmental filter that causes them to die off again and disappear fairly quickly,” he told me. “If you look at planet Earth, the filtering we’ve had in the past has been in these mass extinctions.” The mass extinction we are now living through has only just begun; so much more dying is coming.

And yet, improbably, Ward is an optimist. So are Broecker and Hansen and many of the other scientists I spoke to. We have not developed much of a religion of meaning around climate change that might comfort us, or give us purpose, in the face of possible annihilation. But climate scientists have a strange kind of faith: We will find a way to forestall radical warming, they say, because we must.

It is not easy to know how much to be reassured by that bleak certainty, and how much to wonder whether it is another form of delusion; for global warming to work as parable, of course, someone needs to survive to tell the story. The scientists know that to even meet the Paris goals, by 2050, carbon emissions from energy and industry, which are still rising, will have to fall by half each decade; emissions from land use (deforestation, cow farts, etc.) will have to zero out; and we will need to have invented technologies to extract, annually, twice as much carbon from the atmosphere as the entire planet’s plants now do. Nevertheless, by and large, the scientists have an enormous confidence in the ingenuity of humans — a confidence perhaps bolstered by their appreciation for climate change, which is, after all, a human invention, too. They point to the Apollo project, the hole in the ozone we patched in the 1980s, the passing of the fear of mutually assured destruction. Now we’ve found a way to engineer our own doomsday, and surely we will find a way to engineer our way out of it, one way or another. The planet is not used to being provoked like this, and climate systems designed to give feedback over centuries or millennia prevent us — even those who may be watching closely — from fully imagining the damage done already to the planet. But when we do truly see the world we’ve made, they say, we will also find a way to make it livable. For them, the alternative is simply unimaginable.

*This article has been updated to provide context for the recent news reports about revisions to a satellite data set, to more accurately reflect the rate of warming during the Paleocene–Eocene Thermal Maximum, to clarify a reference to Peter Brannen’s The Ends of the World, and to make clear that James Hansen still supports a carbon-tax based approach to emissions.

          javascript引擎工作原理      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

  1. 什么是JavaScript解析引擎?

  简单地说,JavaScript解析引擎就是能够“读懂”JavaScript代码,并准确地给出代码运行结果的一段程序。比方说,当你写了 var a = 1 + 1; 这样一段代码,JavaScript引擎做的事情就是看懂(解析)你这段代码,并且将a的值变为2。

  学过编译原理的人都知道,对于静态语言来说(如Java、C++、C),处理上述这些事情的叫编译器(Compiler),相应地对于JavaScript这样的动态语言则叫解释器(Interpreter)。这两者的区别用一句话来概括就是:编译器是将源代码编译为另外一种代码(比如机器码,或者字节码),而解释器是直接解析并将代码运行结果输出。 比方说,firebug的console就是一个JavaScript的解释器。

  但是,现在很难去界定说,JavaScript引擎它到底算是个解释器还是个编译器,因为,比如像V8(Chrome的JS引擎),它其实为了提高 JS的运行性能,在运行之前会先将JS编译为本地的机器码(native machine code),然后再去执行机器码(这样速度就快很多),相信大家对JIT(Just In Time Compilation)一定不陌生吧。

  我个人认为,不需要过分去强调JavaScript解析引擎到底是什么,了解它究竟做了什么事情我个人认为就可以了。对于编译器或者解释器究竟是如何看懂代码的,翻出大学编译课的教材就可以了。

  这里还要强调的就是,JavaScript引擎本身也是程序,代码编写而成。比如V8就是用C/C++写的。

  2. JavaScript解析引擎与ECMAScript是什么关系?

  JavaScript引擎是一段程序,我们写的JavaScript代码也是程序,如何让程序去读懂程序呢?这就需要定义规则。比如,之前提到的var a = 1 + 1;,它表示:

  • 左边var代表了这是申明(declaration),它申明了a这个变量

  • 右边的+表示要将1和1做加法

  • 中间的等号表示了这是个赋值语句

  • 最后的分号表示这句语句结束了

  上述这些就是规则,有了它就等于有了衡量的标准,JavaScript引擎就可以根据这个标准去解析JavaScript代码了。那么这里的 ECMAScript就是定义了这些规则。其中ECMAScript 262这份文档,就是对JavaScript这门语言定义了一整套完整的标准。其中包括:

  • var,if,else,break,continue等是JavaScript的关键词

  • abstract,int,long等是JavaScript保留词

  • 怎么样算是数字、怎么样算是字符串等等

  • 定义了操作符(+,-,>,<等)

  • 定义了JavaScript的语法

  • 定义了对表达式,语句等标准的处理算法,比如遇到==该如何处理

  • ⋯⋯

  标准的JavaScript引擎就会根据这套文档去实现,注意这里强调了标准,因为也有不按照标准来实现的,比如IE的JS引擎。这也是为什么JavaScript会有兼容性的问题。至于为什么IE的JS引擎不按照标准来实现,就要说到浏览器大战了,这里就不赘述了,自行Google之。

  所以,简单的说,ECMAScript定义了语言的标准,JavaScript引擎根据它来实现,这就是两者的关系。

  3. JavaScript解析引擎与浏览器又是什么关系?

  简单地说,JavaScript引擎是浏览器的组成部分之一。因为浏览器还要做很多别的事情,比如解析页面、渲染页面、Cookie管理、历史记录 等等。那么,既然是组成部分,因此一般情况下JavaScript引擎都是浏览器开发商自行开发的。比如:IE9的Chakra、Firefox的 TraceMonkey、Chrome的V8等等。

  从而也看出,不同浏览器都采用了不同的JavaScript引擎。因此,我们只能说要深入了解哪个JavaScript引擎。

  4. 深入了解其内部原理的途径有哪些?

  搞清楚了前面三个问题,那这个问题就好回答了。个人认为,主要途径有如下几种(依次由浅入深):

  看讲JavaScript引擎工作原理的书

  这种方式最方便,不过我个人了解到的这样的书几乎没有,但是Dmitry A.Soshnikov博客上的文章真的是非常的赞,建议直接看英文,实在英文看起来吃力的,可以看译本

  看ECMAScript的标准文档

  这种方式相对直接,原汁原味,因为引擎就是根据标准来实现的。目前来说,可以看第五版第三版,不过要看懂也是不容易的。

  看JS引擎源代码

  这种方式最直接,当然也最难了。因为还牵涉到了如何实现词法分析器,语法分析器等等更加底层的东西了,而且并非所有的引擎代码都是开源的。

  5. 以上几种方式中第一种都很难看明白怎么办?

  其实第一种方式中的文章,作者已经将文档中内容提炼出来,用通俗易懂的方式阐述出来了。如果,看起来还觉得吃力,那说明还缺少两块的东西:

  对JavaScript本身还理解的不够深入

  如果你刚刚接触JavaScript,或者说以前甚至都没有接触过。那一下子就想要去理解内部工作原理,的确是很吃力的。首先应该多看看书,多实践实践,从知识和实践的方式来了解JavaScript预言特性。这种情况下,你只需要了解现象。比方说,(function(){})() 这样可以直接调用该匿名函数、用闭包可以解决循环中的延迟操作的变量值获取问题等等。要了解这些,都是需要多汲取和实践的。实践这里就不多说了,而知识汲取方面可以多看看书和博客。这个层面的书就相对比较多了,《Professional JavaScript for Web Developers》就是本很好的书(中文版请自行寻找)。

  缺乏相应的领域知识

  当JavaScript也达到一定深度了,但是,还是看不大明白,或者没法很深入到内部去一探究竟。那就意味着缺少对 应的领域知识。这里明显的就是编译原理相关的知识。不过,其实对这块了解个大概基本看起来就没问题了。要再继续深入,那需要对编译原理了解的很深入,比如 说词法分析采用什么算法,一般怎么处理。会有什么问题,如何解决,AST生成算法一般有哪几种等等。那要看编译原理方面的书,也有基本经典的书,比如《Compilers: Principles, Techniques, and Tools》这本也是传说中的龙书,还有非常著名的《SICP》《PLAI》。 不过其实根据个人经验,对于Dmitry的文章,要看懂它,只要你对JavaScript有一定深度的了解,同时你大学计算机的课程都能大致掌握了(尤其 是操作系统),也就是说基础不错,理解起来应该没问题。因为这些文章基本没有涉及底层编译相关的,只是在解释文档的内容,并且其中很多东西都是相通的,比 如:context的切换与CPU的进程切换、函数相关的的局部变量的栈存储、函数退出的操作等等都是一致的。

When people state we should be returning to the bible, does that mean we should be returning to barbarism? When we've finally returned back to our barbaric 1st Century state by following the bible to the letter, will the atoms of a Palestinian dead for 2000 yrs suddenly re-assemble themselves to appear before us and rescue us from that barbarism?
          Boring Report: New Machines on the Scene      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
by Christopher Frizzelle

Two weeks ago, a blue thing appeared.
In the last week of July, I got home from work and this blue thing, seen above, had appeared onsite. CF

If you're not familiar with Boring Report, um, not a lot happens. You can get caught up on Boring Report here.

Anyway, the blue thing. What is it? A slingshot? A crane?

Okay, maybe its not quite as eager as that trackhoe.*
Even by the light of day the next morning, I could not tell. CF

Whatever it is, it looked ready to work. Eager.

Okay, maybe not quite as eager as that trackhoe.*

Big ups to the cement trucks.
Later on the scene: more things. CF

A day or two after the blue thing appeared, the white thing appeared. Pretty sure the white thing is the sibling or cousin of the blue thing although I'm no constructionologist.

Big ups to the cement trucks.

Look, some new machines.
Here they are on the opposite side of the site doing god knows what. CF

What you can't see well in this photo (at all) is that the blue thing is inserting a giant drill into the ground.

I realized that by standing and watching for a while. Even though the transit station is blocking a good view of the blue thing (as you can see), after standing and watching for a while I could decipher that it's a drill—just below the roofline of the light rail station, a gigantic drill bit turned as it churned down into the ground, then pulled up soil in a column, and then shook itself free of the fresh soil, and then, with a clean drill bit, dug into the earth again, and so on.

Presumably they're making room for columns for the foundation or poking holes in the Earth's crust so magma can spew out or something cool like that.

I still cant tell you what the white thing is.
I still can't tell you what the white thing is.

Looks a little lazy if you ask me. Maybe I just caught it at the wrong time. Or maybe it's the thing that pumps the cement from the mixing trucks into the holes the blue thing makes.

Don't ask me! We report, you decide.

To answer the burning question I know is on your mind: How are the trackhoes doing?

The trackhoes are doing great.
The trackhoes are doing great.

My God - Ernie Sochin actually makes sense (for once)- we need some semblance of elevated rail with easy effortless vehicular access, free parking, safe stations, walkovers/flyovers, etc. The $2,800,000,000.00 collected since 2002 from the half cent sales tax has gone where? Well we did get a Metrorail extension to the COUNTY owned airport but that's it. Ernie's right - expanded busses will only result in even more extended waits for east/west cross street traffic and left turns on north & southbound US-1. The bottom line is vehicles need to be effortlessly able to get to the stations in less time than it takes to cut thru residential neighborhoods and that quite simply will not happen by extending north & southbound traffic signals. In addition to completing the arterial grid (avenues that end with "7") as the County pointy heads suggest, the only solution is some sort of elevated rail system with highway beneath but that is a generation or longer away. Bless your heart Ernie - there's hope.

          XXIII edizione di TOVAGLIA A QUADRI, ad Anghiari (AR) dal 10 al 19 agosto 2018      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Tovaglia a Quadri, evento teatrale che si svolge dal 1996 fra le mura medievali di Anghiari, in provincia di Arezzo, definito dai suoi autori &ldquo;cena toscana con una storia da raccontare in quattro portate&rdquo; arriva quest&rsquo;anno alla sua ventitreesima edizione. Promossa dall&rsquo;Associazione culturale Tovaglia a Quadri, che si occupa anche degli aspetti logistici e organizzativi, realizzata in collaborazione con l&rsquo;Associazione Teatro Stabile di Anghiari come responsabile della parte artistica, con il Comune di Anghiari (Ar) e la Rete Teatrale Aretina, con il sostegno della Regione Toscana e di numerosi sponsor locali, questa manifestazione raccoglie ogni anno oltre 1000 spettatori provenienti da tutto il territorio nazionale. Lo spettacolo che avr&agrave; luogo da venerd&igrave; 10 a domenica 19 agosto, alle ore 20,15, scritto come sempre dal direttore artistico del Teatro di Anghiari Andrea Merendelli e da Paolo Pennacchini, porta in scena come di consueto una storia centrata su problematiche del nuovo millennio che si fondono con le vecchie tradizioni del paese. Le storie narrate negli spettacoli sono infatti frutto di un continuativo lavoro di ricerca d&rsquo;archivio, unito alle testimonianze degli abitanti del posto, legate alla memoria di Anghiari, ai racconti dei nonni. Vicende di vecchia data che gli autori restituiscono alla collettivit&agrave; con un sapiente lavoro di ricerca, antiche passioni sopite, vicende pi&ugrave; o meno note ma anche personaggi dimenticati tornano a vivere grazie alle interpretazioni degli attori locali che si fanno cantori delle loro stesse radici. I personaggi tipici del paese abitano gli amarcord che si intrecciano con il presente e con le vite, solo apparentemente quiete, dei protagonisti. Il tutto condito dagli stornelli toscani che risuonano dalla fisarmonica e dalle voci degli stessi attori in mezzo ai vicoli di Anghiari mentre, tra una scena e l&rsquo;altra, il pubblico si gode la prelibatezza dei piatti e del vino rosso. &Egrave; questa tematica della memoria civile della collettivit&agrave; una delle caratteristiche salienti della manifestazione, che dal 1996 ci ha parlato e portato dentro piccole grandi storie che vanno dalle miniere etrusche a Leonardo, dal brigantaggio alle deportazioni nazifasciste, dall&rsquo;emigrazione in Argentina alla svendita dell&rsquo;acqua pubblica, dagli artigiani alla crisi della sanit&agrave; fino ad arrivare alla crisi occupazionale della Buitoni, partendo dal locale fino ad arrivare al nazionale. Storie antiche o temi di potente attualit&agrave;, come afferma Gianfranco Capitta &ldquo;Gradualmente, con lo scorrere degli anni e delle portate, si &egrave; passati dal racconto dei fasti di una celebre cortigiana locale approdata in Vaticano (l&rsquo;Anghiarina, appunto), al problema degli immigrati che qui sono molti e rendono possibili le grandi coltivazioni di tabacco pregiato&rdquo;. La carica civile non viene mai meno in questi temi brucianti, che a tavola sono divenuti patrimonio comune, raccontati con l&rsquo;umorismo toscano che rende &ldquo;accettabili&rdquo; le realt&agrave; raccontate, tutte pienamente documentate, in un vero e proprio teatro della memoria collettiva in cui la piazza del paese diviene una &ldquo;zona franca&rdquo; dove la memoria pu&ograve; essere (o non essere) condivisa da tutti. Le prime tredici sceneggiature sono state raccolte, nel volume Tovaglia a Quadri, tutte le storie, pubblicato nel 2009 con prefazione del critico teatrale Gianfranco Capitta. Palcoscenico deputato &egrave; la piazzetta del Poggiolino, luogo denso di significati per i suoi abitanti, una piazzetta lunga e stretta che si trova nel cuore del borgo. Paese della alta Val Tiberina, adagiato tra Toscana, Umbria e Marche, Anghiari &egrave; noto ai pi&ugrave; per il famosissimo affresco perduto di Leonardo da Vinci, giunto a noi tramite i disegni di Rubens (conservati al Louvre) e un&rsquo;opera del 1470 di Biagio di Antonio (oggi alla National Gallery of Ireland di Dublino). L&rsquo;opera di uno dei pi&ugrave; grandi geni dell&rsquo;arte raffigurava la famosa e omonima battaglia, che avvenne il 29 giugno 1440 proprio nella piana antistante la parte pi&ugrave; antica della citt&agrave;, il Poggiolino, appunto. Novit&agrave; nel men&ugrave; della cena e novit&agrave; nel cast degli attori. Oltre ai consueti piatti tipici del luogo (crostini, bringoli, bocconcini di Chianina, cantucci, vino rosso e vin santo del contadino), quest&rsquo;anno ci sono novit&agrave; nel men&ugrave; e nel cast degli attori. Il pubblico, seduto davanti alle tavole apparecchiate con le famose tovaglie a quadri della storica manifattura anghiarese, assister&agrave; allo spettacolo messo in scena dagli attori-abitanti, affacciati a porte e finestre che danno sulla Piazzetta. Sono gli stessi cittadini, non dunque attori professionisti, a recitare tra i commensali della lunga tavolata. A scandire la performance, gli intermezzi musicali che rappresentano una sospensione del racconto e accompagnano le portate servite agli spettatori dagli stessi attori, deputati al ruolo di camerieri, sia nella finzione che nella realt&agrave;.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OzBhG0WkUrM Asura , a fantasy epic based on Buddhist mythology touted as the most expensive Chinese film ever made, has been pulled from theaters after a dismal opening weekend. On the film's official Weibo account (roughly China's version of Twitter), producers offered "deepest apologies to viewers who did not get a chance to watch the film, as well as to all the Chinese and international participants who were involved in its production over the past six years." The Weibo post did not give a specific reason for the decision, according to The South China Morning Post. The Guardian describes Asura as a combination of "complex special effects, big-name stars and [a] huge crew."

Historical Influences and the Preamble
 
We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
 
            History
 
The formal version of the Magna Carta in England was issued on June 19, 1215. There was a minor change in the new document, when the final provision was drafted, replacing the term "any baron" with "any freeman" in stipulating to whom the provisions applied. The term would eventually include all Englishmen. The final version's applicability to all members of the English Society served as a starting point for the Constitution's Preamble, where "any freeman" was changed once again, but this time to the first three words of the American document: "We the People."
 
The English Colonists developed legal codes largely incorporating liberties guaranteed by the Magna Carta and the 1689 English Bill of Rights. Though the education levels of the colonists varied, and few could afford legal training in England, they were familiar with English common law. During one parliamentary debate in the late 18th century, Edmund Burke observed, "In no country, perhaps in the world, is law so general a study."
 
James Madison and Thomas Jefferson drew inspiration from the doctrines of the British constitution, or in what were called English liberties.
 
Unlike the Spanish Colonies, which were conquered land ruled over by the Spanish Conquistadors, and authoritarian governors, the English Colonies were granted by charter. Rather than bear the burden of empire, which, as Spain discovered, could be expensive, and taxing on a nation's armed forces, the English Crown offered the lands along the Atlantic Coast to investors, entrepreneurs, and families seeking a new start. In the northern colonies, the colonists sought religious freedom. The Pilgrims did not want to keep their membership in the Church of England. As separatists, the Pilgrims organized their worship independently, colonizing north of the Puritans at Plymouth Rock.
 
The English Colonies enjoyed autonomy that the Spanish Colonies did not. To survive in the Spanish Colonies, the colonist exhibited a warrior spirit, conquering the lands and the people who stood in the way, forcing the captured natives into slave labor and marriage for the purpose of accomplishing the tasks necessary for survival, while also being heavily dependent upon supplies from the homeland. The English Colonies were expected to survive by living off the land. They were families, indentured servants, and seekers of fortune. They were forced to be self-reliant, personally responsible, and hard working, in order to survive. The English Colonists did not attempt to conquer the natives as the Spanish did, but worked with them, making treaties with the Native Americans, because they needed the native population's help in order to survive. In the English Colonies, freedom was a necessary component of survival, and after failing under communitarianism, the colonists found that a free market system, where colonists kept more of what they worked for, and had the option to trade goods in an open market, worked best for the burgeoning society.
 
In English America, freemen adopted the best of the English system, while adapting it as necessary to the new circumstances in the colonies. The English Colonies was a place where a person could rise by merit, not by birth. The thirteen colonies was a place where men could voice their opinions and actively share in self-government. When the British Crown challenged these beliefs, turning to the colonies as a source of revenue to help alleviate the Crown's substantial debts, and the growing expense of keeping troops on American soil, the colonists questioned the government in Britain, challenging the actions of Parliament, arguing that without consent or direct representation in Parliament, the acts by the motherland were "taxation without representation," and an act of tyranny against the free Englishmen of the colonies.
 
The influence of the Magna Carta, and the demand for liberty, existed along the Atlantic Coast long before the War of Independence. As John Adams later wrote to Thomas Jefferson, "The Revolution was in the minds of the people, and this was effected, from 1760 to 1775, in the course of 15 years before a drop of blood was shed at Lexington."
 
The Americans knew their rights, and they were willing to fight for them. The seal adopted by Massachusetts on the eve of the Revolution summed up the mood. The image was of a militiaman with sword in one hand, and the Magna Carta in the other.
 
When it was time to form a new government, embodied in a written social contract we now know as the Constitution of the United States, the founders determined that like England under the Magna Carta, the government must be limited by subjecting it to the rule of law. The Constitution, once ratified by the States, became the law of the land. The document serves as a written standard where the authority emanates from the people, not from any governmental body. Pursuant to the Constitution, no man, not even the country's leader, was considered to be above the law. The rule of law based on the philosophy of the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God was the basis of constitutional thought in the United States in 1787.
 
"A government of laws, and not of men." - John Adams
 
Elder statesman Benjamin Franklin strolled across a grassy lawn from Independence Hall in Philadelphia, after the conclusion of the Federal Convention of 1787, when a woman in a bonnet approached him, asking, "Sir, what have you given us?"
 
"A republic," Dr. Franklin replied. "If you can keep it."
 
The new government in the fledgling United States was considered to be one that was doomed to fail. Europeans scoffed at the American experiment in self-government. The Old World argued that without the hand of a divinely appointed, wise, ruling monarch in place to guide society, a culture could not succeed. The Grand Experiment was a waste of time, and it would not be long before the rebellious, starving, treasonous, and petulant, English colonists came crawling back to the British Crown, begging to be readmitted to the empire.
 
In a society with no government, people have no freedom. In a society with too much government, people have no freedom.
 
Without government there is no law, and without law there are no enforcers of the law. This kind of system is called an anarchy, which is a transitional form of government. In an anarchy, there is no freedom because the citizens must constantly protect their property, and their lives.
 
With government in place, there are laws in place. When there are laws in place, it is necessary to hire enforcers of the law, such as a police force. A society with a government in place can create an environment of freedom that allows citizens the ability to leave their property and engage in activities away from their homes.
 
Tyranny through a unitary state dominates the pages of history. Tyrannical governments obtain their power through violence, and bloodshed in a complete disregard for authorities granted, justice, or the rule of law. To maintain their power, tyrants use violence and bloodshed. When tyrannies are finally toppled, the path to dislodging tyrannies normally includes violence and bloodshed.
 
Violence and death are the common results of powerful central governments with dominant rulers.
 
Dictators do not normally reveal their plans of tyranny during their rise to power, for the people would never have allowed them to become their leaders if they knew this kind of violence was in their future. Tyrannical leaders render legislative bodies irrelevant, demoting them to nothing more than a consultative assembly.
 
In history, tyranny is the rule, and liberty is the exception. Governments that protect the freedoms of the people, and respect the rights of their citizens, are a rare occurrence. Freedom requires the citizens to be informed and involved. With freedom comes responsibility.
 
An educated society begins by teaching the younger generations the principles of liberty, and to encourage them to be involved in civic activities, and local government. The founders understood we need government, but a limited government was required to secure the rights and property of the citizens. However, because of human nature, the founders realized that without making sure the people remained educated about the system they had established, a downward spiral into despotism and tyranny was inevitable.
 
The Declaration of Independence was approved by the Continental Congress on July 4, 1776, and outlined the reasons why the colonies were seeking independence from Great Britain. The founding document declares that it is the right of the people to alter or abolish their government should it become destructive. It also states these truths are self-evident, and that "all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness."
 
The document penned by Thomas Jefferson includes a list of grievances, most of which are also iterated in the U.S. Constitution. The Declaration calls for fair representation, encourages immigration, calls for a judiciary that is separated from the will of the central leadership, calls for a stop to the presence of a standing army, demands that Great Britain stop the quartering of troops in the houses of the citizens, demands fair trials, and calls for due process, free trade, fair taxation, a protection of rights, and for the Crown to hear the redress of grievances by the colonists.
 
A key aspect of the Declaration of Independence reveals itself in the final sentence of the document. The call for independence ends with the incredible statement, "And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor."
 
Political Spectrum
 
In the battle of Left versus Right, it is important to understand what it all means in the first place. Like-minded individuals naturally tend to gather together when a theater of opinion erupts. Congregating in such a manner, creating political parties, is a part of our human nature. Houses, or chambers, of government are no different. Members of the political assembly who support similar agendas sit together, much in the way social allies tend to hang out together at a dinner party. The classification of "left" and "right" grew out of the tendency of people to group together on one side, or the other.
 
The early definition of "left" and "right" was different than in today's American Society. Among the most commonly known split between the left and the right in a political assembly occurred in France before the French Revolution. Members of the National Assembly sat on the right or the left of the hall depending on their level of political support in regards to the ruling monarchy. Those in support of the monarchy, and the religious elements that came with the reigning government, would sit on the right. The people on the right were defined as being those holding traditional interests in line with the Church and the monarchy, believing the king ruled by divine right, and that Catholicism must continue to be the state religion, and therefore continue to be a strong influence on governance. The people who sat on the right side of the assembly believed that the Church had a vested interest in the political system, and sought to preserve that system.
 
Those who sat on the left side of the hall in France during the period preceding the French Revolution did so in support of "enlightenment," which was considered to be in the interests of rationalism and secularism. The left used secular elements to challenge the Church's long-held influence over government, fostering nationalism among its allies, and promoting hope in constructing and shaping the political community. The left desired to change government by overthrowing the Church and the aristocracy by promoting secularism and nationalism. The planners of this glorious new "Enlightened" government became the leaders of France after the French Revolution, orchestrating a Reign of Terror, which was a period of chaos during which thousands were guillotined for being politically incorrect.
 
The radicals within this new government saw the Catholic Church as the enemy while promoting its Cult of Reason. Like with the monarchy before them, however, it became clear that to control the political and social upheaval, the government in place must also become tyrannical in their own right. Under the rule of statism, France remained a nation unable to cultivate liberty, and one that remained under the iron fist of a dictatorial government. For many, this was no surprise. Some of the planners of the change of the form of government in France knew that in order to keep order they would need to "treat the people as cattle."
 
The French National Assembly established a constitutional monarchy and adopted a new constitution in 1791 that created a Legislative Assembly. The political assembly, as with any other political body, rapidly divided into factions opposing each other. The three factions that formed in the new French Legislative Assembly were the radicals (liberals), moderates (centrists) and conservatives. The radicals (liberals) sat in the left section of the assembly hall, the conservatives sat on the right, and the moderates sat in the center section. Their political identities have some similarities to political movements today in the United States, and had little in common with the pre-revolution arrangement that emphasized itself more on monarchy and religion.
 
America is much younger than the European nations, and never had a landlord class of titled nobles. In fact, the Constitution specifically prohibits such a system. The Founding Fathers desired to break away from European traditions as much as possible, even abandoning much of British Common Law when defining citizenship. To be a British Subject the rules were weak, and divided loyalties ran rampant throughout the British Empire. The United States as a nation could not tolerate divided loyalties, and placed a stronger standard of natural born citizenship upon the President in order to eliminate the opportunity for the executor of the American Form of Government to harbor divided loyalties between the United States of America, and any other nation. That way, the new American government could break completely free of any European influence, and forge itself into a Republic independent from British influence, and in fact, the authoritarian nature of Europe as a whole.
 
The political landscape of the United States of America, since there never was a class of nobles, was simple in the young nation. Either you were a Federalist, an anti-Federalist, or somewhere in between. In other words, you believed in a stronger centralized federal government, you believed that the federal role in government should be limited greatly, or you found yourself somewhere between the two political beliefs.
 
Unlike the Europeans, royalty and religion played no role in determining the nature of American political philosophies. Nearly all of the early American Politicians were deeply religious men, but the political spectrum did not separate factions along religious lines. God played a major role in the principle foundation of the nation, but the founding fathers also determined that no religion could ever take an official role in government. In other words, the establishment of any religion as the official religion of the United States was forbidden. However, the freedom to practice one's religion was not to be infringed upon. Almost all of the signers of the Declaration of Independence were either clergy, or highly involved in their church. 27 of the 56 signers had Christian seminary degrees. The founding fathers fervently prayed in Congress.
 
Benjamin Franklin is widely regarded to be among the least religious of the founding fathers. However, his speech given to Congress on June 28, 1787 asking that Congress have a prayer every morning before conducting business was overtly religious in nature. Despite modern assumptions, there was not a political battle between The Church and the secularists during the founding of the United States of America.
 
From the newer models of government in France, and America, the definition of the Political Spectrum changed, becoming more about the level of control of government over a society, rather than the presence of a monarchy, or established church. Zero percent of government intrusion on the lives of the people inhabits the far right of the current political spectrum, which is a condition known as anarchy. 100% governmental control inhabits the far left extremity of the Political Spectrum, or a totalitarian government. The American form of government, or a Constitutional Republic that operates under the rule of law, is at the center of the political spectrum.
 
Most of the current forms of government present in today's international political arena reside on the left side of the Political Spectrum, drawing their foundations from socialist principles. Socialism is authoritarian. Socialism claims to seek to overthrow the Church and aristocracy by promoting atheism and nationalism, much like the enlightened planners of the French Revolution, only replacing the government they thought to be a tyranny with a tyranny of their own. In Russia, the rise of socialism held the basic tenet of replacing the individual's commitment to God with a commitment to love and serve a collective society ruled by an elite few.
 
When one examines the communist society, which resides on the left side of the Political Spectrum, one finds that if society was ruled over by an equally powerful religious theocracy, the basic governmental elements of the ruling doctrine are the same, and just as tyrannical. Therefore, a controlling government based on religion is no different than an atheistic system of communism. Either way, the form of governance is based on a centralized control over the people, and limits on personal individualism, and freedoms.
 
Economically, leftism encourages increased government involvement with the instruments that regulate the economy. Under a leftist economic system, such as in the communist model, the government seizes control of the industries, eliminating private ownership. In the fascist model, however, the authoritarian political entity engages in corporatism, allowing the private enterprises to remain private, yet bundled together in a uniting strength under authoritarian government rule. Because fascism (from Italian fascismo, Benito Mussolini's authoritarian political movement in Italy 1922 to 1943) was created to be an adverse reaction to the apparent economic failure of Marxism, and labeled itself as the opposite of communism, fascism is often referred to as being right-wing, and ultra-conservative. If you break down the political structure of fascism, however, it becomes apparent that defining fascism as being on the right side of the political spectrum is problematic. Like socialism, fascism exalts the group above the individual (in fascist states often the nation or race is exalted above the identity of the individual). Like other leftist systems, fascism also calls for a separation of church and state, a national civilian army, and progressive taxation. One element of fascism some may argue as being right-wing is the fact that fascism seeks to eliminate labor unions for co-ops. But the co-operatives, in a fascist state, are controlled by the government, and therefore become more leftist than the system before. Though fascism, during the early twentieth century, claimed to be anti-communist, the National Socialism aspect of the ideology places fascism on the left side of the Political Spectrum.
 
Ultimately, the true definition of the Political Spectrum is dependent upon how government interacts with society. Increased government intrusion moves needle on the spectrum to the left. Increasing limitations on government intrusion moves the needle to the right. In both cases, the extreme of totalitarianism, or anarchy, are equally dangerous. Ultimately, most forms of government, despite the promise of fairness, are often only precursors to another form of government. The Founding Fathers realized this, recognizing that the only form of government that both limits the powers of the federal government, while still giving it adequate authority to protect and preserve State Sovereignty, is a Constitutional Republic. They knew that if you pursue leftism too far, an authoritarian government would rise from the movement. If government was limited too much, and the government did not have enough power to enforce law, an authoritarian government would also rise to fill the void.
 
            The Preamble
 
We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
 
The Preamble is the introduction of the U.S. Constitution. The opening paragraph of the founding document holds no legal authority. The Preamble serves to establish who is granting the authority to create a new federal government, and the reasons for the decision. We The People of the United States are the grantors. In other words, the States, which were the embodiment of the people, were creating the federal government, and granting authorities to it so that it may function in a manner necessary to protect, promote, and preserve the union of States. The concept became known as federalism.
 
The Preamble is designed much like a permission form the doctor's office may present to you to sign, giving the doctor the authority to perform necessary procedures on your body in order to make you well. The form begins with your name (I, patient's name), and then limits the doctor to only the procedures necessary to make you well. The doctor, if he or she believes additional procedures may be necessary, must ask for your permission before performing the additional procedures that are not granted by your original agreement with them.
 
Like the form in the doctor's office, the Preamble begins with who is granting the authorities. "We the People of the United States" are the grantors of the authorities given to the new federal government. The people, through their States, allow the federal government to exist, and to perform the procedures expressly granted in the United States Constitution.
 
If a homeowner hires a contractor to add a room to their house, a contract is created between the homeowner, and the company hired to do the work. The contract establishes the granted authorities to the construction company regarding the room addition, listing the materials and labor necessary and proper to carry out that task. If, later, after the work begins, the homeowner observes the workers tending to the garden, and mowing the lawn, the homeowner would be angry because lawn maintenance was not among the authorities granted to the contractor hired to provide the service of adding a room to the house. In the same way, through the Constitution, the federal government has been granted a list of authorities that are necessary and proper for it to carry out the tasks vested in it. The tasks directly relate to protecting and preserving the union, while also respecting and promoting State Sovereignty. The federal government's authorities encompass only the external issues necessary to protect the union, and the sovereignty of the States. Internal issues are not granted to the federal government. Local issues are reserved to the local governments, such as the States, counties, and cities.
 
The first three words of the Preamble, "We the People," often lead people to believe that we are a democracy. Taken in context, the first part of the Preamble is not only "We the People," but "We the People of the United States." In the context of original intent, "the people of these States that are united have come together to establish this contract for the following reasons."
 
The words "United States" appear often in the U.S. Constitution. When those words appear in the text of the Constitution, they mean one of two things. Either, "United States" is a reference to the new federal government, or United States means "these states that are united." In the case of the Preamble, both definitions are used. As we notice the first time united States appears in the Declaration of Independence, "united" is not capitalized. Failing to capitalize "united" in the Declaration of Independence was a reflection of the common opinion of the people of that era. America was not a nationalistic country dominated by a powerful government, but a union of States that are sovereign, autonomous, and individual - like the people. We the People are the individual parts of their States, and the States are individual parts of the union.
Early Americans saw the United States in the plural, rather than as a singular nationalistic entity. The people were citizens of their States first, but realized that the States must be united to survive. The individual States would only be safe if they all worked together as a united country. To ensure the union was protected they proposed forming a central government through a social contract called the United States Constitution. This contract to grant limited authorities to a federal government was designed to ensure that the federal government remained limited so as to not infringe on the individual rights of the sovereign States, and the people who resided in those States.
 
A limited government is the essence of liberty.
 
The reasons listed in the Preamble for forming a new government were "In Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity." In line with classical writing standards, these reasons were listed in order of importance.
 
The most important reason for the formation of the federal government, the main purpose for the creation of the U.S. Constitution, was "in Order to form a more perfect Union." A union already existed under the Articles of Confederation. A confederation, however, is a weak form of government where nearly all of the power remains with the individual members. A confederation is an association of sovereign member states that, by treaty, or other agreement, have delegated some of their powers to a common institution in order to coordinate policies, without constituting a new state on top of the member states. The government under the Articles of Confederation was formed hastily during the Revolutionary War, and as revealed by Shays' Rebellion, proved to be too weak to protect the union not only from threats beyond our shores, but insurrection from within the country. The founders realized that they needed to form a more perfect union, one with more authorities, while still remaining fairly limited in its power and scope. The realization that the Articles of Confederation were too weak, and either needed to be fixed, or replaced, was first discussed in delegation during the Annapolis Convention in 1786. During that meeting, the attending State delegates decided to meet again in May of 1787 in a convention of all States, which became the Federal Convention of 1787.
 
Under the Articles of Confederation, the central government was as weak as a lamb. What America needed was a central government with the strength of a lion. The problem with lions, however, is that they can kill you if not restrained. So, the Founding Fathers had to figure out a way to create a lion strong enough to deal with the external issues, and conflict between the States, while restraining that lion in such a way that the people living under it were safe from its potential tyranny. The lion is the federal government, and the chains and restraints of a set standard that protects We the People from that lion is the United States Constitution.
 
In the Constitution, the authorities granted to the federal government are limited to protecting, preserving, or promoting the union. The federal government, through the express powers granted in the Constitution, was granted authorities including, but not limited to, maintaining an army and navy in order to protect the union, to collect taxes in order to pay for that military and the other necessary functions created for the purpose of preserving the union, to regulate commerce by acting as a mediator between the States so that the flow of commerce flows regularly and in good order so as to encourage a growing economy for the union, establish a uniform rule of naturalization for the purpose of ensuring the union grows through legal immigration, and to establish post offices so that the many parts of the union may remain in contact with each other. The federal government was created for the sake of the issues related to the union. The federal government was not created to manage local issues that have nothing to do with the union, and everything to do with the unique cultures and societal needs of the local communities.
 
The second reason listed in The Preamble for the creation of the federal government through the ratification of the U.S. Constitution were to "establish Justice." Note that the word "establish" is normally used in situations where whatever is being established never previously existed. The word "establish" being used in the Preamble, then, leads us to believe that there was no justice prior to the writing of the founding document. However, justice systems already existed in each of the States, through State court systems. Therefore, the U.S. Constitution was not written to establish justice in the States, but to establish justice at the federal level where a judicial system had not previously existed. The language used in the Constitution, in this case, provides us with a clue that the original intent of the Founding Fathers was for the Constitution to apply only to the federal government, unless it specifically states otherwise.
 
Though "establish Justice" is listed second in the list of reasons for creating the federal government, we must not confuse "importance" with "power." To establish justice was a very important reason for creating a federal government, but the federal court system, for fear of it becoming a powerful judicial oligarchy, was also greatly limited. During the debates of the Constitutional Convention in 1787, there was actually a consideration to not establish a federal court system. The delegates realized that tyranny easily flows through an activist judiciary. The rule of law could be easily compromised by a judicial branch not willing to abide by the original intent of the U.S. Constitution, or poisoned by political ideology. For this reason, the powers of the judicial branch are greatly limited by the Constitution. We will go into more detail regarding those limitations when we get to Article III, and the 11th Amendment.
 
The first two reasons for the writing of the U.S. Constitution, according to the Preamble, were to form a more perfect union through the formation of a federal government, and to establish justice by creating a federal judicial system. Those primary goals reveal to us that the Constitution was not written to grant powers to the States, but for the purpose of creating, yet limiting, a newly formed federal government, which was designed to serve the States by protecting them, and preserving the union they enjoyed. Before the States delegated some of their own powers to the federal government through the Constitution, all of those powers belonged to the States - a political condition known as Original Authority. The States, however, only granted "some" of their powers to the federal government, retaining most of the powers for themselves.
 
The U.S. Constitution, and all language within the document, is directed to the federal government, not to the States, unless specifically indicated otherwise. This is because the States essentially "hired" the federal government to protect and preserve the union. The contract that authorizes the federal government to exist and receive the authorities from the States is the U.S. Constitution. Therefore, it would not be reasonable to assume that the provisions of the Constitution are to be applied to the States as much as it would not be logical to believe that an agreement between you and your doctor tells you what you can and can't do regarding the procedures that are about to be performed on you. The agreement with the doctor is specifically designed to tell the doctor what procedures are allowed, just as the Constitution is specifically designed to tell the federal government what authorities it is allowed to have in order to protect, preserve, and promote the union. In that contract with the doctor there may be instructions that tell you what not to do so as to not undermine healing, such as submersing oneself in water before a wound is fully healed. The same is true in the Constitution. There is a section, Article I, Section 10, that tells the States what they are prohibited from doing. These prohibitions were necessary to ensure the States did not interfere with federal functions.
 
Since it is We The People of the United States who granted the federal government its powers, that means it is the people's responsibility, through the States, responsibility to ensure the federal government acts in a constitutional manner. The Constitution is nothing more than ink and paper if we don't fight for it.
 
The union, at the time of the writing of the Constitution, was fragile. The States, as colonies, or as individual states shortly after the American Revolution, did not always coexist in a mutually beneficial manner. The States enjoyed their own unique cultures, religions, and laws. The States clashed over territory, commerce, and a variety of other issues that often included disputed legal issues and definitions. The States were much like siblings, fighting over everything under the sun; but when it came down to brass tacks, they were united when it came to defending each other.
 
The bickering between the States created an atmosphere that placed the cohesion of the union at risk. Therefore, when it came to creating a more perfect union, it was understood by the framers that the federal government would have to "insure domestic Tranquility" and to "promote the general Welfare."
 
The federal government was expected to ensure there was tranquility between the States by acting as a mediator in disputes. Part of that task by the federal government was to also promote the general welfare of the republic. In other words, the federal government was tasked with making sure the squabbles were properly resolved, while also protecting the union, so that the welfare of the union would not be in jeopardy.
 
The term general Welfare, as it is presented in the Preamble, is capitalized in a curious manner. Welfare is capitalized, but the word "general" is not. Capitalization in the Constitution was often used for the purpose of emphasis. With that tendency as our guide, we recognize that "Welfare" was the key component when these two words were presented in the Preamble. The Founding Fathers were seeking "Welfare" with a capital "W." The founders tasked the federal government with the duty of ensuring there was Welfare in the nation in a general manner. Or, you could say that they wanted the atmosphere in general to be one of "Welfare," or "all's well," hence, the reason general is not capitalized, and Welfare is, in the Preamble.
 
Tucked between "insure domestic Tranquility" and "promote the general Welfare" is the phrase: "provide for the common defence." The placement of this phrase in The Preamble reveals that providing for the common defense was almost as important as ensuring peaceful cooperation between the States, and slightly more important than promoting the general Welfare of the republic (and a necessary part of ensuring the general Welfare).
 
The need to provide for the common defense, one may note, was not listed first in The Preamble as one of the reasons for the creation of the federal government. The Founding Fathers, though they recognized the importance of the federal government to field a military force, as realized from the failure of the government to put down insurrection during Shays' Rebellion under the Articles of Confederation, did not list the need to provide for the common defense at the beginning of the Preamble because a country that places too much importance on a military is doomed to become a police state. Defending this nation was not placed at the bottom of the list of reasons for the writing of the Constitution, either, because a nation that refuses to defend itself ultimately becomes a conquered entity that is subject to the authority of a foreign government. Despite the fear of a powerful military that could be used against the people and the States, providing for the common defense was still indeed one of the primary reasons for creating the federal government in the first place. That is why "provide for the common defence" is listed in the Preamble within the central depths of the body of the paragraph.
 
The final reason for the writing of the Constitution was to "secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity." The presence of the word "Blessings" reminds us that the Founding Father's grateful spirit recognized that the result of the American Revolution, and the inspiration for the new federal government, could have only come from the favors of Divine Providence. Liberty, remember, is one of the unalienable rights listed in the Declaration of Independence that has been given to us by The Creator. In fact, that is one of the foundational beliefs of the original intent behind the creation of the federal government. Our rights are granted to us by God, not by government, for if our rights are granted to us by government, government would then be able to take those rights away. This idea of God-granted rights is based on a concept called Natural Law penned by John Locke during the 1600s. In the Declaration of Independence, it is referred to as, "Laws of Nature and of Nature's God." Natural Law is the unchanging moral principles regarded as a basis for all human conduct, which is observable law we participate in as related to our natural existence.
 
The U.S. Constitution was not solely written only to protect our natural rights, liberty, and property. Protecting our rights, liberty, and property are among the chief reasons the Constitution was written in the manner that it was, and protecting those natural rights are predictable byproducts when the Constitution is being followed by the government, but those are not the only reasons for the perceived need to compose the founding document, or for the creation of the federal government.
 
As indicated in the Preamble, the primary reason for the Constitution was "in Order to form a more perfect Union." However, the very formation of that union, and devising a governmental system to protect, preserve and promote that union, was not exclusively for the sake of the union, either. The ultimately desire was to protect the sovereignty of each component of that union - The States. The framers understood that by creating a federal government, the potential for the governmental system to become a tyranny was unleashed. Therefore, in order to protect the rights, liberty and property of the people (more specifically to "secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity"), the federal government needed to be limited in its authorities by the rule of law. The law of the land in which the governmental system is limited to, in the case of the United States, is the U.S. Constitution, for the sake of protecting the individuality of the States, and We the People.
 
Terms:
 
Confederation: A confederation is an association of sovereign member states that, by treaty or other agreement, have delegated some of their powers to a common institution in order to coordinate policies, without constituting a new state on top of the member states.
 
English Bill of Rights: The Declaration of Rights in 1689, following the relatively bloodless "Glorious Revolution" of 1688, reasserting Protestant influence in England, and establishing a written declaration based on the belief that rights are granted by God, limiting the power of the king, and guaranteeing individual rights in writing. At its core, the system of government based on the English Bill of Rights, and the Magna Carta, holds as its philosophy that government is to serve the people, not the other way around.
 
Federalism: Government in which the central government's power and authority is limited by local government units, and where each unit is delegated a sphere of power and authority only it can exercise, while other powers must be shared. The term federalism comes from the Latin root foedus, which means "formal agreement or covenant." It includes the interrelationships between the states as well as between the states and the federal government.
 
Magna Carta: The "Great Charter" of English Liberties, forced from King John by the English barons at Runnymede, June 15, 1215. A fundamental constitution, or law guaranteeing rights.
 
Unalienable Rights: Incapable of being alienated, that is, sold and transferred. You can not surrender, sell or transfer unalienable rights, they are a gift from the Creator to the individual and can not under any circumstances be surrendered or taken. All individual's have unalienable rights.
 
 
 
Questions for Discussion:
 
1. How might the United States be different if the Magna Carta, or the Glorious Revolution, had never taken place?
 
2. Many of us were taught to memorize the Preamble in school, others remember it because of the School House Rock cartoon on Saturday mornings, but growing up how many times were we taught what it means?
 
3. Federalism, or the belief in a central government limited by the authorities granted to it in the Constitution, began as a wonderful idea. The members of the "Federalist Party," however, were not satisfied, and desired the federal government to have more authorities than it was granted. Why do you think this is true?
 
4. Why did the Founding Fathers only desire the federal government to be granted powers that regarded the union, and not authorities in regards to other issues?
 
4. The judicial branch was supposed to be the weakest of the three branches. Why do you think the Founding Fathers wanted to limit the judiciary to such an extent?
 
5. One of the founding principles is that our unalienable rights are given to us by the Creator. Is it a coincidence that historically most authoritarian governments that sought to take away the rights of the individual did it either by taking control of the church, or by rejecting religion/the existence of God?
 
6. At what point does a government take "provide for the common defense" too far?

     In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit: Dear God, I thank You for the life of Joseph Flamini, who passed from our arms to Yours at 5:00 PM on Monday, August 6, 2018. I pray You, lift up this extraordinary man, a true genius and a Renaissance man for our time, that he may enjoy eternal bliss in Your radiant presence. Please comfort his widow Helen, his wife of so many years, who now faces life without him, his incredible competence, his inexhaustible energy, and his unfailing love. May we who loved him always remember him in the fullness of his strength. I make this prayer through Our Lord Jesus Christ, Who lives and reigns with You in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God forever and ever. Amen.

After great pain, a formal feeling comes –
The Nerves sit ceremonious, like Tombs –
The stiff Heart questions ‘was it He, that bore,’
And ‘Yesterday, or Centuries before’?

The Feet, mechanical, go round –
A Wooden way
Of Ground, or Air, or Ought –
Regardless grown,
A Quartz contentment, like a stone –

This is the Hour of Lead –
Remembered, if outlived,
As Freezing persons, recollect the Snow –
First – Chill – then Stupor – then the letting go –

In 1976, Rita Moreno had already won an Oscar, a Grammy, and a Tony. She won her first Emmy for a performance that year on The Muppet Show in which she sang "Fever" with Animal accompanying on the drums. She remembers the recording session in detail.
And when I watch myself—’cause I’m usually so critical—but when I watch myself, I just laugh at me. What I love about it is that my character’s trying so hard to be sexy and sultry. And this horrible creature in back of me is acting up. [Laughter] See? I can’t stop laughing. It tickles me to death.

          Izboljšave za zaposlene v gostinstvu in turizmu      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Po večmesečnem intenzivnem usklajevanju so ključni akterji danes podpisali novo kolektivno pogodbo za dejavnost gostinstva in turizma, ki bo delavcem v panogi prinesla številne izboljšave. Od lanske jeseni so delodajalci za deficitarne poklice kuharjev in natakarjev plače zvišali za 11-15 %, tokratna kolektivna pogodba zagotavlja tudi letni regres v višini 1000 evrov. Socialna partnerja – Turistično gostinska zbornica Slovenije (TGZS) in Združenje delodajalcev Slovenije (ZDS) – sekcija gostinstva in turizma sta s Sindikatom delavcev gostinstva in turizma po večmesečnem usklajevanju, od oktobra 2017, dosegla socialni sporazum, katerega rezultat je nova kolektivna pogodba za našo panogo, ki bo veljala do konca leta 2022. Andrej Prebil, predsednik Turistično gostinske zbornice Slovenije: »Gre za pomemben socialni sporazum, ki smo ga usklajevali več mesecev in je nujen za nadaljnji razvoj panoge in konkurenčnost na zahtevnem turistično gostinskem trgu. Nova kolektivna pogodba bo pripomogla k boljšim razmeram v omenjenih panogah, po pogajanjih pa je bil hkrati dosežen temeljni cilj, da bo na sistemski ravni zagotovljena celovita ureditev v ciljni smeri k višjemu vrednotenju dela in višja kakovost storitev v gostinstvu in turizmu.« Klavdija Perger, direktorica Turistično gostinska zbornica Slovenije, je ob slavnostnem podpisu pogodbe poudarila: »Vključeni deležniki turističnega gospodarstva se neprenehoma zavzemamo za ustrezno vrednotenje dela v turistični in gostinski panogi, rezultat je nova kolektivna pogodba, ki bo omogočila boljše delovne pogoje v turistični in gostinski panogi.« Kolektivno pogodbo so sklenili trije socialni partnerji: Turistično gostinska zbornica Slovenije (TGZS), Združenje delodajalcev Slovenije (ZDS) – sekcija gostinstva in turizma in Sindikat delavcev gostinstva in turizma Slovenije. Nova pogodba vključuje spremembe v tretjini dosedanjih členov s ciljem zaščite zaposlenih in ureditve problematike presežka ur, nova kolektivna pogodba določa zvišanje plačila in bolj ažurno izplačilo presežnih ur v okviru referenčnega obdobja zaradi zavedanja problematike preseganja opravljenih delovnih ur. Delodajalec je dolžan vsake 3 koledarske mesece narediti analizo stanja presežka ur delavcev, ki nastanejo zaradi neenakomerne in začasne prerazporeditve delovnega časa, v okviru referenčnega obdobja omogočiti, da izrabi presežek ur, ki jih je opravil zaradi neenakomerne razporeditve ali začasne prerazporeditve delovnega časa oz. delavcu izplačati presežne ure v skladu z dogovorom v kolektivni pogodbi. V pogajanjih sta Turistično gostinska zbornica Slovenije in Združenje delodajalcev Slovenije pristala na zvišanje ključnih tarifnih razredov v panogi, v višini, kot je druge panoge nimajo (11-15 % zvišanje). Po novem bodo delavci upravičeni do najmanj 1000 evrov regresa za letni dopust. Z dodatnim dogovorom, ki so ga sklenili od podpisu kolektivne pogodbe, so uspeli urediti pomembno problematiko v dejavnosti gostinstva in turizma pri zagotavljanju dnevnih in tedenskih počitkov delavcev.V primerih, kjer narava poslovanja zahteva kontinuirano zagotavljanje dela, ter v primerih povečanega obsega dela v času sezone, se lahko dnevni in tedenski počitek v povprečnem minimalnem trajanju, zagotavlja v obdobju, ki ne sme presegati 3 mesecev. Podpis nove kolektivne pogodbe je bil nujen za stabilno delovanje panoge gostinstva in turizma, ter urejenost področij, ki zagotavljajo socialno varnost zaposlenim in pravno podlago urejenih delovnih razmerij za delodajalce.

          Pastors Wish They Were Better Equipped in These 8 Areas      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

I thank God for pastors. They are often criticized, second-guessed, underpaid and expected to do too many things. Pastors would be perfect if they were simply omniscient, omnipotent and omnipresent.

Indeed, the expectations of pastors can be overwhelming. In that light, I asked seasoned pastors to share with me the areas they wish they could be better prepared and better equipped. The results were voluminous, and the needs are great. Here are the top eight:

  1. Leading the church in evangelism/reaching the community. Many pastors felt as if evangelism and healthy growth are neglected topics. They admitted their own sense of inadequacy in leading their churches to reach more people with the gospel.
  2. Leadership development. Pastors know they can't do the work of ministry alone. But many of them shared poignantly how they wish they could become better at developing leaders in the church. They understand, both biblically and intuitively, that more leaders are imperative for a church to be healthy.
  3. Finances/business issues/administration. "I never considered how much of church life is running an organization," one pastor shared with us. "I was never trained for that aspect of ministry, and it has come back to haunt me again and again." Another pastor confessed that he had never learned to balance his checkbook, but he was expected to lead a church with a half-million-dollar budget.
  4. Leading staff. We heard it again and again: "I have no idea how to lead my staff. I have no idea how to evaluate my staff. I have no idea how to deal with conflict among my staff." In fact, one pastor told me he joined Church Answers for one reason: so he could ask questions about dealing with staff.
  5. Counseling. Many pastors shared how much their congregations demand in counseling. They also said the demand seems to grow every year. They not only lack the training to know how to counsel, they often don't know when to refer people to professionals.
  6. Dealing with change and conflict. This is a common theme among pastors. They were told to expect conflict before they became pastors, but the reality was consistently worse than the warnings. They long to know how to lead change and deal with conflict better, but they often feel inadequate in those areas.
  7. Dealing with their own depression. A number of pastors admitted surprise when depression hit them. They simply did not expect it to happen to them. Many also admitted shame and embarrassment in talking to others about their struggles. Some even shared confidentially with me their own thoughts of suicide in the past.
  8. Equipping others. This particular need is similar to No. 2, leadership development. But in this case, pastors desire to equip the entire body of Christ, not just leaders. But many pastors feel woefully inadequate in doing so.

It was fascinating to see what topics did not make the list: Bible, theology, ethics and preaching, to name a few. The pastors expressed gratitude to the Bible colleges, seminaries and books that prepared them well in the classical disciplines. But the cries were for better preparation in practical issues and practical ministries.

How about you? Where do you think pastors need to be better equipped? What would you add?

Let me hear from you. {eoa}

Nastasya - "Nasty" - is immortal. She is human, but just doesn't die as easily as most people. She is blunt, in your face, and her inner voice or narration to the reader is really genius and funny. She has spent the last 100 years of her 450 years partying with her friends. After witnessing her best friend cruelly hurt a non-immortal she runs away.

She ends up at River's Edge - a sort of rehab for immortals. There she is welcomed by River who helps immortals find themselves and get over past traumas. She also meets Reyn - "the Viking god" who doesn't like her and wants her to leave and who looks familiar to her for some reason.

I really enjoyed this book. It wasn't "typical teenage book" where characters are shallow and the perfectly looking boy + girl jump into bed together the first chance they get and call it love. While there are paranormal elements to this story the primary focus is on Nastasya's inner struggle to become a whole person, to become more than she is and to find herself and be comfortable with who that is.

3 stars
The Hematoi (basically a demi-God) descend from the unions of gods and mortals, and the children of two Hematoi—pure-bloods—have godlike powers. Children of Hematoi and mortals are called half-bloods and are seen as second class citizens. Half-bloods only have two options: become trained Sentinels who hunt and kill daimons or become servants in the homes of the pures.

Alexandria would rather risk her life fighting than waste it cleaning up after some pure, provided she can follow the rules of her kind. Fore example, rule #1: Relationships between pures and halfs are forbidden. Unfortunately, she’s crushing on the totally hot pure-blood Aiden.

This is what I call a typical teenage book. Not original at all, but a fun entertaining read.

Грядки из свежескошенной травы - для меня это прорыв 2018 года. Если раньше траву из газонокосилки я высыпал в компост, то в этом году из этой травы делаю грядки. Выкашиваю целину, потом поливаю препаратом Байкал ЭМ. Натягиваю шнур в ширину 90 сантиметров и засыпаю будущую грядку свежескошенной травой. Культуру сажаю в бороздки, семена засыпаю песком, до уровня травы. В песке нет сорняков. И его наличие для нашей торфяной почвы - это огромный плюс.

новая травяная грядка

Есть желание перевести весь огород на травяные грядки, включая картошку, кукурузу, подсолнечник. В этом году заметил огромную урожайность травяных грядок для грибов дождевиков.:-)

травяная грядка с петрушкой и дождевиком в салате

Лет пять назад мы прочитали в интернете, что грибы дождевики являются деликатесом в Италии. Там их ценят выше белых грибов. Дождевиков на нашем участке растет очень много. Мы набрали самых молодых и поджарили на подсолнечном масле. Вкус ацетона от этого жарева до сих пор стоит во рту при виде гриба дождевика. И преследует нас в ночных кошмарах.:-) Что итальянцу хорошо, то русскому не понять.

дождевик сибирский, пятидесятисантиметровый

То ли мы дождевики эти не правильно приготовили, то ли менталитет не тот. Короче, лучше наших белых грибов ничего в мире нет. На скромный вкус сибиряков.:-)

Особенно в длинных двадцатиметровых травяных грядках мне нравится, что можно легко сочетать разные культуры. После десяти корней помидор можно посадить бархатцы, затем пять перцев и потом три куста табака. А на следующий год все меняем.

В этом году на травяных грядках особенно порадовали ревень, щавель, мелисса и иссоп.

The Review:
               
It’s a god damned golden age of grind.  Even the overlooked gems are getting second lives in the form of reissues (who the hell would expect beautiful, expansive Spazz discographies in multiple formats NOW?), reunions, international festivals, and bona fide geniuses putting out fresh releases constantly.  The deluge of content is overwhelming, but the appreciation for the true forebears quickly wipes out posers and tryhards.  Plus, there’s a certain punky self-effacing attitude that is undeniable about grind – this shit is on the fringes, and not in some right wing edgelord way.  It’s crass, it’s brutal, it’s sometimes silly, but for those who love it, there are few ways better than spending fifteen minutes (or often less) than smashing your way through a grind split.  The best of them have the minute shifts in style and tone that make the genre far more diverse than its harshest critics would have you believe.  And if it’s just a mediocre effort – hell who doesn’t have fifteen minutes to spare?  Thankfully, the three-way collaboration from Organ Dealer, Nerve Grind, and Invertebrate, heralded as an East Coast/West Coast “meeting of the grinds”, is definitely the former: an all-star smashup that offers entry for genre newbies and no holds barred true grind annihilation for the most seasoned veterans.
               
Organ Dealer may be my favorite underground grind band of the moment.  Maybe it’s the hometown pride, maybe it’s the sheer volume of output, but there’s also genuine craft to what they’re releasing – a sometimes mathy, sometimes hardcore balance that makes them stand out on every release.  I’m a fan of the dual vocal style as they employ it here, with guitarist Tom Maher offering guttural backup to Scot Moriarty’s higher register hardcore bark; it’s not necessarily melodic, but there’s a dynamic force and musicality to the way Moriarty spits out (on “Burn”), “You cannot gaze at me! Without me life is naught!” 
The balance of Trevor Gramm’s clear, pristine basswork; the dual guitar riffing of Jeff Knoblauch & Maher; and Eric Schnee’s mind warping drumming start the EP with the breakneck “Feed” and the brutality never relents. 

“Totality” is the most distinctly “mathcore” sounding cut, with Schnee ascending into jazz-metal bodhisattva mode.  When they back off from blast beat pummeling, like on personal fave “Contour”, Organ Dealer slides into a sneering punk swing that just hits me in the perfect way – I wanted to start my own circle pit on mass transit but had to settle for upsetting my seatmate on the bus with excessive headbanging.  “Silence” is a grim standout for me – it’s not “classic” grind, but it’s nasty and heavy, and the perfect bookend to the six stellar tracks Organ Dealer lay down.
               
Nerve Grind go straight for the lizard brain, offering ignorant as fuck deathy grind that doesn’t even crack the two minute mark.  I didn’t have a lyric sheet for this one, but with titles like “Bow to Nothingness”, “Existential Significance”, and “Worthless Failure”, I assume guitarist/vocalist Jeff is bellowing out some truly soul-crushing madness – the perfect match for the downtuned murky progressions.  The drumming by Douglas is that relentless old school blast beat madness that only requires a simple kit but genuine chops that would make black metal Frost wannabes cry into their plastic mead horns.  It’s brutal and short and solid grind.
               
Invertebrate highlight that weird playful grind attitude I really love.  Using key samples and excellent timing, they often made me laugh out loud before launching into misanthropic sludge-inflected grind.  Lyrics like “fucking disgrace / emotions erase / good for nothing / pile of shit” highlight the mantra (if there is one) of this band’s 7 tracks: fuck you AND fuck me, too.  Another power trio, they have a solid vocal interplay by all three members, with one offering a somewhat adenoidal bark that was weirdly satisfying and unique amid the deathy growls and hardcore shouts.  The majority of the tracks are breakneck classic grind, with satisfying forays into sludgy, groove-inflected riffing.  I’d be really interested in seeing them break out more in a full-length, even if it’s just 15 minutes long, too.
               
Overall, this untitled split doesn’t reinvent or redefine anything about grind, but with so many lauded, heavy bands eschewing just what endeared them to metal audiences (the “black” in the “blackgaze” crop, the “metal” in the prog metal glut), Organ Dealer, Nerve Grind and Invertebrate stick to brutal basics and seem all the more remarkable because of the lack of gimmicky bullshit.  When they throw in some unexpected grooves, ease back into a slower tempo, or pepper in some funny sampling, they serve as essential reminders that heavy bands can be innovative and exciting without hopping on the latest bandwagon or hitching themselves to the fads that crest and crash every few years in American metal circles.  These guys are lifers – the fact that they’re excellent musicians is just that much more exciting for anyone who’s been paying attention to the underground.

          Harrisonburg’s Illiterate Light discovers the pull of Montrose Recording      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Musicians Jeff Gorman and Jake Cochran wanted to tour the mid-Atlantic in a different way. So in 2012, they did a nine-day bike tour, stopping in Harrisonburg, Staunton, Charlottesville, Richmond, Fredericksburg, Alexandria and finishing in Baltimore.

Accompanied by friends, they hauled a bike-powered generator in a bike trailer. At shows, two people biked in place on a tandem bicycle to run the generator that powered the sound system for the show. The seeds were planted for what would become their experimental indie rock duo, Illiterate Light.

Gorman's grandfather was a jazz drummer while his uncle Steve is a drummer and founding member of the Black Crowes, so he grew up drumming. In high school, he picked up the guitar because he wanted to write. Cochran studied drums in high school, but by the time he met Gorman at James Madison University, he was playing guitar more than drums and working on his songwriting.

Both are passionate about life outside of music — agriculture, biking, building community and social justice — but by the time they graduated in 2012, they'd decided to focus all their energy on it. It was when they started touring heavily out of state that they got comfortable onstage.

"That meant making errors, playing wrong notes, good shows, bad shows, having a guitar amp crap out midset, singing with strep throat, playing while exhausted or playing to an empty room in a cold city," Gorman says. He says getting comfortable with their imperfections allowed their shows to improve because they were less reactive to each unexpected moment and more present and focused on enjoying every second of it.

While they'd started as a trio in February 2015, by November that year, they'd transitioned to a duo. The band's name comes from a Wilco song called "Theologians," which has a line: "Inlitterati lumen fidei / God is with us everyday / That illiterate light / Is with us every night." Gorman saw the phrase illiterate light as representing a force or energy that was big and loving, inclusive and full of mystery.

Although the band is based in Harrisonburg, the two feel drawn to Richmond.

"There's something special about Richmond and I think it comes down to the people," Cochran insists. "We've played all over the East Coast the last three years, but for some reason Richmond opened their arms to us like no one else."

When it came time to record, choosing a studio was a no-brainer. Impressed by records coming out of Montrose Recording by local bands such as Camp Howard and the Wimps, the band got a nudge from local musician Charlie Glenn of the Trillions.

"After hanging a few times, he told us pretty plainly that we needed to record with his friend Adrian [Olsen] at Montrose," Cochran recalls. "He said, 'You need to capture your live sound and energy and your current recordings aren't doing it."

The duo already had a few days of studio time booked in Nashville with Vance Powell, who'd worked with Kings of Leon and the White Stripes. But it was several months off, so they booked two days at Montrose with a few half-finished songs. "We came out three days later with five incredible tracks that we just couldn't believe," Cochran says. "We fell in love with that studio and felt we finally found the right team with Adrian and Charlie co-producing."

They wound up booking another week a few months later and finished with a full length album that was mixed by Powell.

Nashville has become a second home for Illiterate Light because of the support they've gotten from its scene. It's meant meeting musicians they love and respect and finding out they're welcoming and supportive of young bands.

"Tom Blankenship, the bassist for My Morning Jacket, caught one of our shows at an East Nashville dive bar last year and now he comes to a ton of our shows there. He's really supportive, which means the world to us."

At the upcoming Richmond gig, the band will be playing songs from the new album, which is fitting, not just because the songs are fresh right now, but because they came to life at the Camel over the past year. Touring follows with the East Coast in August, the Southeast in September and Midwest in October.

"Believe it or not we've got more studio dates booked with Montrose," Gorman admits. "We just finished this album, but the next one is already brewing and Richmond is a great place for us to keep the ball rolling." S

Illiterate Light, the Trillions and the Wimps perform at the Camel on Aug. 18 at 9 p.m. at 1621 W. Broad St., thecamel.org.

GODZINA: 1:10 DYSCYPLINA: Baseball MECZ: Tampa Bay Rays vs Baltimore Orioles TYP: 1 KURS: 1.56 BUKMACHER: LvBet ANALIZA: Mecz pomiędzy 7 a 15 drużyną American League. Wczoraj w pierwszym meczu tych drużyn po zaciętym meczu i bardzo dobrej końcówce gospodarzy padł wynik 4:3. Dzisiaj moim zdaniem będzie podobnie chociaż liczę na bardziej okazałe zwycięstwo zawodników z Florydy. Tampa zajmuje aktualnie 7 miejsce ale bardzo dużo brakuje im do 6 miejsca. Na ostatnie 10 meczy wygrali tylko 4 ale myślę że dziś poprawią ten wynik. Baltimore jest drużyną która na wyjazdach spisuje się fatalnie. Ich bilans w meczach wyjazdowych wynosi 14-44. Dawno w lidze nie było tak słabej na wyjazdach drużyny. Miotaczem gości będzie Andrew Cashner (3-10) 31 letni bardzo doświadczony zawodnik którego statystki w tym sezonie wyglądają bardzo słabo. Jego ERA wynosi 5.05. Po drugiej stronie miotaczem będzie Ryne Stanek (1-3) 27 letni zawodnik dla którego jest to dopiero 2 sezon w lidze. Mimo niewielkiego doświadczenia jego statystki wyglądają dobrze. Jego ERA wynosi tylko 2.27. Wszystko wskazuje na to że Tampa odniesie dziś zwycięstwo.

GODZINA:19:00 DYSCYPLINA:piłka nożna MECZ:Trenczyn - Feyenoord TYP:over 2,5 gola KURS:1,55 BUKMACHER:Totolotek ANALIZA: AS Trenczyn po wyeliminowaniu Górnika Zabrze trafił na bardzo wymagającego rywala. Jest nim Feyenoord Rotterdam, który już jedno trofeum zdobył w tym sezonie. Kilka dni temu pokonali PSV Eindhoven po rzutach karnych tym samym zdobywając superpuchar Holandii. Było to ich pierwsze spotkanie o stawkę, ale napewno są już głodni gry. W przedsezonowych meczach pokonali między innymi Basel aż 5-0 i Levante 2-1. Trenczyn pokazał już się nam jako ciekawy ofensywnie nastawiony zespół. Miejmy nadzieje, że nie cofnął się do defensywy i bez kompleksów zagrają z holendrami. Na to się nie zapowiada, bo nawet w lidze przed tym spotkaniem rozbili zespół Sered aż 5-1. Mimo, że kat Górnika, czyli Catakovic siedział przez 63 minuty na ławce to zdołał przed końcem spotkania strzelić bramkę. Moim zdaniem to będzie jeden z najgroźniejszych zawodników dla obrońców Feyenoordu. Nie wszystkich zawodników trener Trenczyna oszczędzał, Sleegers grał i strzelił dwie bramki, Azango grał nieco ponad godzinę, w defensywie nie zagrał tylko Sulek. Feyenoord jak wiadomo ma świetnych zawodników w napadzie. Berghuis, Vilhena, Toornstra czy Larsson zapewniają odpowiedni wysoki poziom w ofensywie. Nie zapominajmy o Van Persie'm, który mimo wieku wciąż jeszcze pamięta jak się strzela bramki. Zespół nie został '' rozebrany '' trzon drużyny został i napewno nie zapomnieli jak się współpracuje na boisku. Z takim napadem jaki ma Feyenoord i z tyloma błędami, które były popełniane przez Trenczyn w meczu z Górnikiem można się spodziewać, że będzie się sporo działo i mam nadzieje, ze kilka bramek padnie. Jeśli miałbym stawiać na to kto wygra to raczej byłby to Feyenoord.

GODZINA: 20:00 DYSCYPLINA: Piłka nożna – ISLANDIA: Inkasso-deildin MECZ: Fram - Thor Akureyri TYP: over 2.5 KURS: 1.50 BUKMACHER: forBET ANALIZA: Witam wszystkich lecimy z kolejną analizą. Tym razem typ na over bramkowy w spotkaniu 2 ligi islandzkiej pomiędzy zespołami Fram Reykjavik oraz Thor Akureyri. W obecnych rozgrywkach obydwie ekipy radzą sobie całkiem przyzwoicie po 14 kolejkach gospodarze mają na koncie 19 punktów i plasują się na 6 miejscu w tabeli, goście natomiast z 29 punktami są na 4 miejscu. Obydwa zespoły bardzo dobrze prezentują się w ofensywie w lidze a także zarówno jedni jak i drudzy mają spore problemy w defensywie co według mnie będzie zwiastowało bramki w tym meczu. Teraz trochę statystyk: *drużyna Fram: – 27 bramek strzelonych w 14 meczach – średnio 1.92 gola na mecz – 14 bramek strzelonych w 7 meczach przed własną publicznością – średnio 2.00 gola na mecz – 21 bramek straconych w 14 meczach ligowych - średnio 1.5 gola na mecz – w 6 na 7 meczy przed własną publicznością zawsze przynajmniej raz pokonywali bramkarza rywali – w ich ostatnich 5 meczach ligowych zawsze pokrywany był over 2.5 gola *drużyna Thor Akureyri: – 27 bramek strzelonych w 14 meczach – średnio 1.92 gola na mecz – 12 bramek strzelonych w 7 meczach wyjazdowych – średnio 1.71 gola na mecz – 20 bramek straconych w 14 meczach ligowych - średnio 1.42 gola na mecz – w 6 na 7 meczy wyjazdowych zawsze przynajmniej raz pokonywali bramkarza rywali – w 5 z 6 ich ostatnich spotkań ligowych pokrywany był over 2.5 Ich ostatnie 4 bezpośrednie spotkania kończyły się wynikami 3:2, 2:2, 1:3 oraz 2:1. Liczę i tym razem na podobny wynik. Powodzenia! …Football is mathematics…

GODZINA: 02:10 DYSCYPLINA: baseball MECZ: Brewers - Padres TYP: 1 KURS:1.52 BUKMACHER: fortuna ANALIZA: po nieudanym starcie serii z Padres na samym stadionie, walczący o playoffy zawodnicy Milwaukee Brewers staną dziś przed szansą na rehabilitację po wczorajszej porażce 5:11. Co zawiodlo we wczorajszym spotkaniu? Słaba gra miotaczy (aż 14 Hitów ze strony gości), gra w defensywie również pozostawiała wiele do życzenia (2 bledy). Co wiecej gospodarze nie potrafili równo grać całego meczu. W pierwszym inningu zdobyli 4RBI, aby potem do końca meczu dołożyć zaledwie jeden. Dziś powinno być inaczej, ponieważ gospodarze liczą się w walce o ppayoffy, wiec mecz z ostatnimi w Lidze Narodowej Padres to okazja na poprawienie swojej sytuacji jeśli chodzi o playoffy. Dziś pitcherem zaczynającym bedzie Hader, który ma obecnie bilans 4-1. Występował w 38 meczach, głównie jako osoba kończąca mecz, jednak jego ERA na poziomie 1.60 w tym sezonie jest dość imponująca. Z drugiej strony miotać będzie Strahm, który ma bilans 3-3. W 25 meczach ma ERA 2.36 co robi już znacznie mniejsze wrażenie. Wydaje mi się, że dziś to gospodarze wyjdą zwycięsko ze względu na wszystkie podane przeze mnie czynniki. Powodzenia

La pena di mortedi Romano Amerio 



187 – La pena di morte.

Vi sono delle istituzioni della società che derivano dai principii del diritto naturale e che come tali godono in varie forme di perpetuità: tali sono lo Stato, la famiglia, il sacerdozio; e ve ne sono di quelle che, partorite da un certo grado di riflessione su quei principii e da circostanze storiche, devono cadere quando la riflessione passi a un grado ulteriore o quelle circostanze cessino: tale, per esempio, la schiavitù.
La pena di morte fu sino a tempi recenti e giustificata teoreticamente e praticata in tutte le nazioni come l’estrema sanzione con cui la società percuote il malvagio col triplice scopo di riparare l’ordine della giustizia, di difendersi e di distogliere altrui dal delitto.
La legittimità della pena capitale è fondata su due proposizioni.
Prima: la società ha diritto di difendersi; seconda: la difesa importa tutti messi necessari alla difesa. La pena capitale è dunque contenuta nella seconda proposizione a condizione che il togliere la vita a un membro dell’organismo sociale risulti necessario alla conservazione della totalità.

La crescente disposizione dei contemporanei alla mitigazione delle pene è per un canto un effetto degli spiriti di clemenza e di mansuetudine proprii del Vangelo, contraddetti per secoli da efferati costumi giudiziari. E’ bensì vero che l’orrore del sangue, per una contraddizione che qui non importa indagare, perseverò nella Chiesa. Conviene infatti ricordare che non pure il carnefice era dal diritto canonico colpito di irregolarità, ma persino il giudice che condanna a morte iuxta ordinem iuris e persino chi perora e chi testimonia in una causa capitale, se ne segua un’uccisione,

La controversia non verte sul diritto della società a difendersi, che è l’inattaccabile premessa maggiore del sillogismo penale, bensì sulla necessità di togliere di mezzo l’offensore per difendersene, che ne è la minore.
La dottrina tradizionale da sant’Agostino a san Tommaso e al Taparelli d’Azeglio è che il giudizio circa la necessità, la quale condiziona la legittimità della pena, sia un giudizio storico e variabile a seconda del grado di unità morale della comunità politica e secondo la maggiore o minore forza che il bene comune consociante deve esplicare contro l’individualismo disgregante. Anche i sistemi di abolizione della pena capitale, a cominciare dal Beccaria, posta la maggiore del sillogismo, danno alla minore carattere puramente storico, perché ammettono in dati frangenti (la guerra per esempio) la soppressione dell’infrattore. Anche la Svizzera durante l’ultima grande guerra condannò a morte per fucilazione diciassette persone colpevoli di alto tradimento.

188. L’opposizione alla pena capitale.

L’opposizione alla pena capitale (1) può nascere da due motivi eterogenei e incompatibili e conviene giudicarla dagli aforismi morali da cui procede.
Può infatti sorgere dall’esecrazione del delitto congiunta con la commiserazione per l’infermità umana e con il senso della libertà dell’uomo, capace finché dura la vita mortale di risorgere da ogni caduta.
Può però anche derivare dal concetto dell’inviolabilità della persona in quanto soggetto protagonista della vita mondana, prendendosi l’esistenza mortale come un fine in sé che non può essere tolto senza violare il destino dell’uomo. Questo secondo modo di rigettare la pena di morte, benché si riguardi da molti come religioso, è in realtà irreligioso. Dimentica infatti che per la religione la vita non ha ragion di fine ma di mezzo al fine morale della vita, che trapassa tutto l’ordine dei subordinati valori mondani.
Perciò togliere la vita non equivale punto a togliere all’uomo definitivamente il fine trascendente per cui è nato e che ne costituisce la dignità. L’uomo può «propter vitam vivendiperdere causas», cioè rendersi indegno della vita perché prende la vita come quel medesimo valore a cui invece essa serve. Per questa ragione vi è in quel motivo un sofisma implicito, che cioè l’uomo e in concreto lo Stato abbia il potere, uccidendo il delinquente, di troncargli il destino, di sottrargli il fine ultimo, di togliergli la possibilità di adempiere il suo officio di uomo.
Il contrario è vero. Al condannato a morte si può troncare l’esistenza, non però togliergli il suo fine.
Le società che negano la vita futura e pongono come massima il diritto alla felicità nel mondo di qua devono rifuggire dalla pena di morte come da un’ingiustizia che spegne nell’uomo la facoltà di felicitarsi.
Ed è un paradosso vero, verissimo che gli impugnatori della pena capitale stanno per lo Stato totalitario, giacché gli attribuiscono un potere molto maggiore che non abbia, anzi un potere supremo: quello di troncare il destino di un uomo (2). Non potendo la morte irrogata da uomini a uomini pregiudicare né al destino morale né alla dignità umana, tanto meno può impedire e pregiudicare alla giustizia divina la quale fa giudizio di tutti i giudizi.
Il senso del motto che stava sulla spada del boia di Friburgo: «Seigneur Dieutu est le  juge» non è l’identificazione della giustizia umana con la divina, ma al contrario riconoscimento di quella suprema giustizia che giudica tutte le nostre giustizie.

Si oppone ancora l’inefficacia della pena capitale a distogliere dal delitto e si reca in suffragio la celebre sentenza di Cesare che nel processo ai Catilinari diceva minor male la morte, fine dell’infamia e della miseria dello scellerato, che non il durare di lui nell’infamia e nella miseria. Ma l’obiezione è confutata dal sentimento universale, che ha ispirato l’istituto giuridico della grazia, nonché dal fatto che gli scellerati medesimi si stringono talora con patti sigillati dalla morte in caso di fedifragio.
Essi confermano con una testimonianza competente l’efficacia dissuasiva della pena capitale.

189. Variazione dottrinale nella Chiesa.

Anche nella teologia penale si delinea nella Chiesa una variazione importante.
Citeremo soltanto documenti dell’episcopato francese che sosteneva nel 1979 doversi in Francia abolire la pena di morte come incompatibile col Vangelo; quelli dei vescovi canadesi e nordamericani, nonché gli articoli di OR, 22 gennaio 1977 e 6 settembre 1978, che perorano l’abolizione della pena di morte come lesiva della dignità umana e contraria al Vangelo.

Quanto all’ultimo argomento è da osservare che, senza accogliere, anzi respingendo la celebrazione della pena capitale fatta da Baudelaire come di un atto altamente sacro e religioso, non si può d’un tratto cancellare la legislazione del Vecchio Testamento che è una legislazione di sangue. Non si può similmente cancellare d’un tratto non dico la legislazione canonica, ma l’insegnamento stesso del Nuovo Testamento.
So bene che il luogo tipico di Rom., 13, 4 che dà il ius gladii ai prìncipi e li chiama ministri di Dio per castigare i malvagi, viene, secondo i canoni ermeneutici dei neoterici, svigorito come espressione di una condizione storica trapassata. Però, nel discorso del 5 febbraio 1955 ai giuristi cattolici Pio XII ha rigettato esplicitamente tale interpretazione sostenendo che quel versicolo ha un valore durevole e generale giacché si riferisce al fondamento essenziale del potere penale e della sua finalità immanente.
Inoltre nel Vangelo il Cristo permette per indiretto la pena capitale, giacché egli dice esser meglio per l’uomo venir dannato a morte per affogamento che far peccato di scandalo (Matth., 18, 6). E in Act., 5, 1-11 appare che la pena di morte non aborrì la comunità cristiana primitiva, poiché i coniugi Anania e Saffira, rei di frode e di menzogna ai danni dei fratelli, comparsi davanti a san Pietro ne furono colpiti. Sappiamo dai commenti biblici che tale condanna fu tacciata di crudeltà dai nemici contemporanei del cristianesimo.

La variazione operata si palesa su due punti.
Nella nuova teologia penale non si fa alcuna considerazione di giustizia e tutta la questione gira sull’utilità della pena e sull’idoneità di essa a recuperare, come si dice, il reo alla società. Qui il pensiero neoterico si ricongiunge, come in altri punti, all’utilismo della filosofia giacobina.
L’individuo è essenzialmente indipendente e lo Stato può difendersi dal delinquente, ma non castigarlo perché abbia infranto la legge morale, cioè perché sia moralmente colpevole. Tale incolpevolezza del reo si trasfonde poi in una minore considerazione della vittima e perfino in una preferenza accordata al reo sopra l’innocente. In Isvezia l’ex-detenuto è privilegiato nei concorsi a pubblici impieghi in confronto al cittadino incensurato. La considerazione della vittima eclissa davanti alla misericordia per il malvagio. L’assassino Buffet salendo alla ghigliottina grida la sua speranza «di essere l’ultimo ghigliottinato di Francia». Doveva gridare quella di essere l’ultimo assassino.
La pena del delitto sembra più detestabile del delitto e la vittima cade nell’oblìo.
La restaurazione dell’ordine morale violato con la colpa viene rifiutata come atto di vendetta. Eppure essa è un’esigenza di giustizia che si deve perseguire anche se non si può annullare il male preterito e se è impossibile l’emendamento del reo.
Lasciamo di rilevare che questo ferisce il concetto medesimo della giustizia divina la quale percuote di pena i dannati fuori di ogni speranza o possibilità di ravvedimento. Ma il concetto stesso di redenzione del reo è ridotto a una mutazione di ordine sociale. Secondo OR del 6 settembre 1978, la redenzione è «la consapevolezza di tornare a rendersi utile ai fratelli» e non già, come vuole il sistema cattolico, la detestazione della colpa e il raddrizzamento della volontà ricondotta alla conformità con l’assoluto della legge morale.

E quando poi si argomenta non potersi troncare la vita di un uomo perché gli si sottrarrebbe la possibilità dell’espiazione, si neglige la gran verità che la pena capitale medesima è un’espiazione.
Certo nella religione dell’uomo espiazione è primariamente il convertirsi dell’uomo agli uomini. Bisogna quindi concedere il tempo a questa conversione e non abbreviarlo. Nella religione di Dio espiazione è primariamente invece il riconoscimento della maestà e signoria divina la quale, conformemente al principio della puntualità della vita morale, si deve riconoscere in ogni momento, e si può.

L’OR, 22 gennaio 1977, combattendo la pena di morte, scrive che al delinquente «la comunità deve concedere la possibilità di purificarsi, di espiare la colpa, di riscattarsi dal male mentre l’estremo supplizio non la concede».
Così scrivendo il giornale nega il valore espiatorio della morte che nella natura mortale è sommo, come sommo (nella relatività dei beni del mondo di sotto) è il bene della vita al cui sacrificio consente chi espia. D’altronde l’espiazione del Cristo innocente per i peccati dell’uomo è connessa con una condanna a morte.
Non sono inoltre da dimenticare le conversioni di giustiziati operate da san Giuseppe Cafasso e anche soltanto alcune lettere di condannati a morte della Resistenza (3). L’estremo supplizio, grazie anche al ministero del sacerdote che si mette tra il giudice e il carnefice, diede luogo sovente a mirabili cangiamenti morali, da quello di Niccolò di Tuldo, confortato da Caterina da Siena, che ne lasciò il ragguaglio in una lettera famosa, a quello di Felice Robol, assistito sul patibolo da Antonio Rosmini (4), da quello di Martin Merino che attentò nel 1852 alla regina di Spagna, a quello a noi contemporaneo di Jacques Fesch, ghigliottinato nel 1957, le cui lettere dal carcere sono un testimonio commovente di una perfezione spirituale di predestinato (5).

L’aspetto dunque più irreligioso della dottrina che respinge la pena capitale risalta nel rifiuto del suo valore espiatorio il quale nella veduta religiosa è invece massimo perché include il supremo consenso alla privazione suprema nell’ordine dei beni mondani.
Calza a questo proposito la sentenza di san Tommaso secondo il quale la condanna capitale cancella oltre che ogni debito di pena dovuta per il delitto all’umano consorzio, persino ogni debito di pena nell’altra vita. Giova riferire le parole precise “Mors illata etiam pro criminibus aufert totam poenam pro criminibus debitam in alia vita vel partem poenae secundum quantitatem culpae, patientiae et contritionis, non autem mors naturalis» (6).
La forza morale della volontà espiante spiega anche l’infaticabile sollecitudine con cui la Compagnia di S. Giovanni Decollato, che accompagna al supplizio i condannati, moltiplicava le suggestioni, le istanze, gli aiuti per procurare di muovere al consenso e all’accettazione l’animo del morituro e così far che morisse, come dicevasi, in grazia di Dio (7).


190. Inviolabilità della vita. Essenza della dignità umana. Pio XII.

L’argomento precipuo della nuova teologia penale rimane però quello dell’inviolabile e imprescrittibile diritto alla vita che resterebbe offeso quando lo Stato irroga la pena capitale.
«Alla coscienza moderna» dice il citato articolo «aperta e sensibile ai valori dell’uomo, alla sua centralità e al suo primato nell’universo, alla sua dignità e ai suoi diritti inviolabili e inalienabili la pena di morte ripugna come un provvedimento antiumano e barbaro».
A questo testo che riunisce tutti i motivi dell’abolizionismo conviene anzitutto fare una chiosa di fatto. L’accenno dell’OR alla «coscienza moderna» è consimile alla premessa del documento dei vescovi francesi, secondo i quali «le refus de la peine de mort correspond chez nos contemporains à un progrès accompli dans le respect de la vie humaine». Ma tale asserto nasce da propensione viziosa della mente a compiacersi delle idee piacenti e a foggiare le idee sul desiderio, giacché gli atroci sterminii di innocenti perpetrati in Germania nazista e in Russia sovietica, la diffusa violenza contro le persone usata come strumento ordinario da governi dispotici, la legittimazione e persino l’obbligatorietà dell’aborto trapassate in legge, l’incrudelire della delinquenza e del terrorismo malamente raffrenati dai governi, infliggono una cruda smentita all’asserto irrealistico.

Della centralità assiologia dell’uomo nell’universo diremo ai §§ 205-10. In generale nel discorso sulla pena di morte vien trascurata la distinzione tra lo stato di diritto dell’uomo innocente e quello dell’uomo colpevole. Si considera il diritto alla vita come inerente alla pura esistenza dell’uomo, mentre esso deriva dal fine morale di lui. La dignità dell’uomo ha origine nella sua ordinazione a valori che trascendono la vita temporale e questa destinazione è segnata nello spirito come immagine di Dio.
Benché sia assoluta quella destinazione e indelebile quell’immagine, la libertà dell’uomo fa che egli colla colpa discenda da quella dignità e travisi da quel finalismo. La base del diritto penale è appunto la diminuzione assiologia del soggetto che viola l’ordine morale e che suscita con la colpa l’azione coattiva della società per riordinare il disordine.
Quelli che all’azione coattiva danno per motivo soltanto il danno inferto alla società, levano ogni carattere etico al diritto e ne fanno una cautela contro il danneggiatore, indistinto se libero o necessitato, se razionale o irrazionale. L’equazione penale nel sistema cattolico, fa che, al delitto, con cui il delinquente è venuto ricercando una soddisfazione in dispregio del comandamento morale, risponda una diminuzione di bene, di godimento, di soddisfazione.
Fuori di questo contrappasso morale la pena diviene una reazione puramente utilistica che neglige appunto la dignità dell’uomo e riporta la giustizia a un ordine tutto materiale, come fu in Grecia, quando al tribunale del Pritanèo si recavano e si condannavano i sassi, i legni, i bruti che avessero cagionato qualche danno.
La dignità umana è invece un carattere impresso naturalmente nella creatura razionale ma si fa cosciente ed elicito nelle mosse della volontà buona o malvagia e cresce o decresce in quest’ordine. Né alcuno vorrà mai pareggiare in dignità umana l’ebreo di Auschwitz al suo carnefice Eichmann o Caterina da Siena a Taide.
La dignità umana non può scemare mai per fatti che non siano morali e, contrariamente al sentimento divenuto comune, non è dal grado di partecipazione ai benefici del progresso tecnologico che si misura la dignità umana, non cioè dalla aliquota di beni economici, né dal grado di alfabetizzazione, né dalla cresciuta cura della salute, né dalla distribuzione abbondante delle cose gradevoli dell’esistenza, né dalla debellazione dei morbi.
Non si confondano la dignità umana, che è un attributo morale, e l’aumento delle utilità che compete anche all’uomo indegno.

La pena di morte e ogni pena, se non si degradano a pura difesa e quasi a mattazione selettiva, suppongono sempre una diminuzione morale nella persona che ne vien colpita: non si ha dunque lesione di un diritto inviolabile e imprescindibile. Non è che la società privi il reo di un diritto ma, come insegnò Pio XII nel discorso del 14 settembre 1952 ai neurologi, «même quand il s’agit de l’exécution d’un condamné à mort l’Etat ne dispone pas du droit de l’individu à la vie. Il est réservé alors au pouvoir public de priver le condamné du bien de la vie en expiation de sa faute aprés que par son crime il s’est déja dépossedé de son droit a la vie (AAS, 1952, pp. 779 sgg.).

E che il diritto alla vita che è inviolabile nell’innocente, non lo sia nel reo, che l’ha scemato in sé stesso con la depravazione della volontà, appare anche se si riguardi il parallelo diritto alla libertà: esso pure è innato, inviolabile e imprescrittibile: tuttavia il diritto penale riconosce legittima la privazione anche perpetua della libertà per sanzione del delitto e il costume di tutte le nazioni la pratica.
Non c’è dunque diritto incondizionato ad alcuno dei beni della vita temporale, e l’unico diritto veramente inviolabile è quello del fine ultimo, cioè alla verità, alla virtù e alla felicità e ai mezzi necessari. Questo diritto non è toccato nemmeno dalla pena di morte.

In conclusione la pena capitale, anzi ogni pena, è illegittima se si pone l’indipendenza dell’individuo di fronte alla legge morale, mediante la morale soggettiva, e di fronte alla legge civile come conseguenza di quella prima indipendenza.
La pena capitale diventa barbara in una società sreligiosata che, chiusa nell’orizzonte terrestre, non ha diritto di privare l’uomo di un bene che è per lui tutto il bene.

NOTE

1 – Tale opposizione è divenuta quasi generale e la pena capitale è riguardata di per sé come un’ingiustizia. Molti Stati membri del Consiglio d’Europa hanno firmato nel 1983 un protocollo addizionale alla Convenzione europea dei diritti dell’uomo con cui si obbligano ad abolire nelle loro leggi la pena di morte (RI, 1983, p. 1077).
2 – E’ dunque falso l’asserto di suor Angela Corradi, apostola dei carcerati, al Meeting di Rimini (OR, 25 agosto 1983): il carcere sarebbe l’occasione per «schiacciare definitivamente» un uomo. Secondo la religione è impossibile all’uomo schiacciare definitivamente un uomo.
3 – Lettere di condannati a morte della Resistenza europea, Torino 1975.
4 – Il discorso che il Rosmini disse sul palco della giustizia a Rovereto di Trento si legge in Opere, Milano 1846, vol. XXVII, pp. 132-84.
5 – Furono pubblicate da A. M. Lemonnier con il titolo Lumière sur l’échafaud, Paris 1971.
6 – Summa theol., alla voce mors (ed Torino 1926). «La morte inflitta come pena per i delitti leva tutta la pena dovuta per i delitti nell’altra vita, o per lo meno parte della pena in proporzione della colpa, del pentimento e della contrizione. La morte naturale invece non la leva».
7 – Sommamente rivelatore è al proposito quel che si legge nelle Relazioni della Compagnia di S. Giovanni Decollato di Roma sotto il giovedì 16 febbraio 1600, circa il supplizio di Giordano Bruno. Gli furono accostati ben sette confessori, domenicani, gesuiti, dell’Oratorio e di S. Gerolamo affinché dove non riuscisse la spiritualità di un genere, avesse per avventura accoglienza quella di un altro. V. Spampanato, Documenti della vita di Giordano Bruno, Firenze 1933, p. 197. A questo proposito si veda il libro di V. Paglia, La morte confortata, Roma 1982, specialmente il cap. VII, La morte del condannato esempio della morte cristiana.

Un tema abbastanza discusso (e quantomai controverso) da diversi circoli e associazioni ai giorni nostri è quello della pena capitale, ormai praticamente scomparsa in Europa ma ancora praticata in paesi come Usa e Cina.

Stando a quello che dicono i benpensanti nostrani e non, essa sarebbe un abominio e una gravissima violazione dei cosiddetti diritti umani sia che venga messa in atto in uno stato democratico che in uno stato dittatoriale, ma non manca anche una fetta di popolazione dalle tendenze alquanto forcaiole che vorrebbe vedere pendagli da forca ad ogni angolo della strada come soluzione alla criminalità.

Onde evitare l’eccesso per difetto (abolizionismo totale) e quello per eccesso (forcaiolismo), va tenuto come punto fisso il magistero della Chiesa riguardante questo argomento. San Tommaso d’Aquino, parlando di questo tema, disse che
Come è lecito, anzi doveroso, estirpare un membro malato per salvare tutto il corpo, così quando una persona è divenuta un pericolo per la comunità o è causa di corruzione degli altri, essa viene eliminata per garantire la salvezza della comunità.” (Somma Teologica, II-II, q. 29, artt. 37-42) 
e che
Siccome alcuni disprezzano le punizioni inflitte da Dio, perché, essendo dediti alle cose sensibili, badano soltanto alle cose che vedono, la Divina Provvidenza ha ordinato che ci siano sulla terra degli uomini che con pene sensibili e presenti obblighino costoro ad osservare la giustizia. Ora, è evidente che tali persone non peccano quando puniscono i malvagi” (G. C., III, C. 146, Q. De Caritate, 2, a. 8, 10 um.).

In linea con quanto affermato dal Dottore Angelico, il Catechismo del Concilio di Trento afferma:
Altra categoria di uccisioni permessa è quella che rientra nei poteri di quei magistrati, i quali hanno facoltà di condannare a morte. Tale facoltà, esercitata secondo le norme legali, serve a reprimere i facinorosi e a difendere gli innocenti. Applicando tale facoltà, i magistrati non solamente non sono rei di omicidio, ma, al contrario, obbediscono in una maniera superiore alla Legge divina, che vieta di uccidere, poiché il fine della legge è la tutela della vita e della tranquillità umana. Ora, le decisioni dei magistrati, legittimi vendicatori dei misfatti, mirano appunto a garantire la tranquillità della vita civile, mediante la repressione punitiva dell’audacia e della delinquenza.” (Catechismo Tridentino, parte terza, punto 328).

Analoghe considerazioni verranno successivamente fatte nel Catechismo Maggiore promulgato da Papa San Pio X:
413. Vi sono dei casi nei quali sia lecito uccidere il prossimo?
È lecito uccidere il prossimo quando si combatte in una guerra giusta, quando si eseguisce per ordine dell’autorità suprema la condanna di morte in pena di qualche delitto; e finalmente quando trattasi di necessaria e legittima difesa della vita contro un ingiusto aggressore.  (Catechismo Maggiore, parte terza, punto 413).

e nell’attuale Catechismo della Chiesa Cattolica del beato Giovanni Paolo II:
2267L’insegnamento tradizionale della Chiesa non esclude, supposto il pieno accertamento dell’identità e della responsabilità del colpevole, il ricorso alla pena di morte, quando questa fosse l’unica via praticabile per difendere efficacemente dall’aggressore ingiusto la vita di esseri umani.” (Catechismo della Chiesa Cattolica, punto 2267)

Alcuni potranno obiettare che la pena di morte sia un concetto veterotestamentario, legato ad usi e consuetudini ebraiche superate dalla venuta al mondo di Cristo, e ad essi risponderei con le parole di padre E. Zoffoli espresse nel suo scritto “Pena di Morte e Chiesa Cattolica”:
Tutti gli esegeti convengono che nel Nuovo Testamento non c’è un solo cenno che abroghi la Legge Antica al riguardo della pena di morte”.

Insomma, come indirettamente ci insegna San Paolo di Tarso in Rom., 13; 3-4:
 […] i magistrati non son di spavento alle opere buone, ma alle cattive. Vuoi tu non aver paura dell’autorità? Fa’ quel ch’è bene, e avrai lode da essa; perché il magistrato è un ministro di Dio per il tuo bene; ma se fai quel ch’è male, temi, perché egli non porta la spada invano; poich’egli è un ministro di Dio, per infliggere una giusta punizione contro colui che fa il male

Non dobbiamo confondere la mitezza e la bontà evangelica con il buonismo di chi spesso e volentieri non riesce ad abbandonare una sua certa arrendevolezza e passività nei confronti di chi fa il male.

Una comunità, una società di cittadini, uno Stato, come persona giuridica perfetta depositaria del diritto e della forza, esercitando il diritto di difendersi e difendere i propri membri anche attraverso la pena capitale, riafferma il supremo valore della convivenza umana, negato dall’atto del criminale, ridona fiducia ai cittadini, dissuade i buoni dal farsi giustizia da soli, riconosce anche assiologicamente il supremo valore della libertà e della dignità umana che è essenzialmente RESPONSABILITA’ (in questo caso nel reo). L’elemento rieducativo della pena (che è, ed è bene ricordarlo, CASTIGO per essenza, rieducazione per accidens) non è negato nemmeno dalla pena di morte. I rei, posti innanzi al patibolo, sono di fronte al grande mistero della morte (che l’abitudinario e comodo ergastolo nemmeno lontanamente riesce a suscitare). I loro delitti, le loro vittime, li interrogano e li incalzano: spetta alla loro coscienza rispondere in quel momento.

Il pericolo dell’errore giudiziario (la gran cassa sfondata dell’orchestrina abolizionista) non può inibire l’utilizzo della pena di morte, come il pericolo dell’errore non può inibire l’utilizzo della chirurgia in medicina: i giudici giudichino con ponderazione, imparzialità e prudenza (ovviamente nei casi dubbi), prima di sanzionare con una pena tanto grave.
E comunque “abusum non tollit usum”. Lo stesso “Non uccidere” biblico va inteso ed è sempre stato inteso come “Non uccidere l’innocente”: non esclude assolutamente quindi l’uccidere l’aggressore per legittima difesa, l’uccidere l’avversario nell’esercizio di una guerra giusta, l’uccidere un colpevole da parte di una comunità statuale, dopo un adeguato procedimento giudiziario.


Quindi la pena di morte non è omicidio ma RISTABILIMENTO di un ordine naturale violato: non ha quindi ragioni utilitaristiche ma eminentemente morali.
Papa Pio XII, in un’allocuzione del 14 settembre 1952 che è naturalmente parte del MAGISTERO PONTIFICIO, riconfermando la dottrina e la prassi millenaria della Chiesa cattolica sull’argomento ebbe ad affermare:
E’ riservato al pubblico potere privare il condannato del bene della vita, in espiazione del suo fallo dopo che col suo crimine, si è SPOGLIATO del diritto alla vita.”

STORIA
Pena di morte, la lezione della Grande Guerra
ECCLESIA08-08-2018
 Fucilazione di un disertore nella Grande Guerra
Il cambiamento del testo sulla pena di morte nel Catechismo, voluto da Papa Francesco, esclude in modo definitivo anche quei casi-limite che, nella versione precedente, erano più o meno implicitamente contemplati. Se è pur vero che le moderne società occidentali possono tutelare il bene comune imprigionando i delinquenti in carceri ben munite, non è detto, infatti, che questo possa essere garantito in migliaia di zone disastrate e poco civilizzate sparse in tutto il mondo dove le strutture di detenzione sono spesso in condizioni precarie.
Ancora, chi ci dice che un domani il mondo non possa precipitare in un nuovo terribile conflitto armato, con la legge marziale che, da sempre, vi si associa?

Rammentiamo innanzitutto un principio di morale naturale: esiste un dovere etico di difendere la propria Patria. Per alcuni questo significa imbracciare un fucile e quindi esporsi al rischio di morire. Il venir meno a questo dovere può comportare da parte dello Stato una risposta sanzionatoria, la quale per essere giusta, tra le altre condizioni, deve tenere in conto della qualità del bene violato o  messo in pericolo a causa dell’omissione del dovere (funzione retributiva). Nei conflitti armati ciò può significare la perdita ingentissima di vite umane innocenti e dunque la pena di morte potrebbe avere una sua giustificazione.

Altra condizione perché la pena sia giusta è quella che fa riferimento alla funzione dissuasiva. Se la storia è maestra di vita, a cento anni dalla fine della Grande Guerra, vale la pena approfondire lo spirito che animò una delle scelte più dolorose e drastiche riguardanti la disciplina militare. Pochi ricordano che in Italia, se la pena di morte è stata abolita nel lontano 1948, essa è stata abrogata nel Codice penale militare di guerra solo nel 1994.

È passato quasi mezzo secolo fra i due provvedimenti per via di una circostanza piuttosto ovvia: il soldato che combatte al fronte è a rischio della vita. Se la sua eventuale diserzione o ammutinamento vengono puniti con il carcere, questo equivale a garantirgli la certezza della sopravvivenza. Qualsiasi pena detentiva diviene, quindi, in tal caso, un beneficio vero e proprio. Viene così meno il principio di deterrenza per atti che, in guerra, mettono in enorme pericolo la salvezza non solo dell’esercito, ma anche dell’intera comunità. Basti pensare a come finirono la Russia zarista o l’Impero austroungarico, crollati proprio a causa degli ammutinamenti. Si ricordi che a Caporetto la II Armata fu spazzata via anche a causa del disfattismo e delle idee pacifiste-socialiste che vi erano penetrate sobillando i militari alla diserzione e alla ribellione.

“Si sta come d'autunno sugli alberi le foglie” scriveva Ungaretti.  Come noto, nel ’15-‘18 la vita al fronte era così precaria che i soldati meno coraggiosi, oltre a darsi alla macchia, erano soliti compiere atti di autolesionismo, sparandosi sugli arti, o provocandosi infezioni. Il carcere, il manicomio, l’ospedale, i lavori forzati, tutto sarebbe stato preferibile pur di portare la pelle a casa.

Per imporre la massima deterrenza verso tali fenomeni, da millenni, negli eserciti di tutto il mondo al soldato vile o insubordinato si è sempre garantita la certezza della morte. Terribile, certo, ma essenziale per la sopravvivenza della collettività.  

E’ molto difficile ammetterlo, ma la Grande Guerra fu vinta dal nostro Paese anche grazie a una disciplina inflessibile. Non è affatto vero che questa fu una caratteristica solo italiana dovuta al “dispotico sadismo del cattolicissimo generale Luigi Cadorna”, come diffuso da certa propaganda, in primis perché tale prassi era in uso in tutti gli eserciti belligeranti, in secundis perché sotto il comando del suo successore, il generale Armando Diaz, le condanne a morte non solo non diminuirono, ma furono proporzionalmente superiori a quelle comminate sotto Cadorna.

In Italia sono documentate 750 condanne alla fucilazione, eseguite dopo regolare processo, relativamente poche se raffrontate con i numeri del Regio esercito, composto da ben 5 milioni di uomini in armi. Per quanto possa essere politicamente scorretto ammetterlo, non si può negare che la pena capitale sia stata un male necessario che ha salvato un intero esercito e un intero Paese. Una triste sorte per pochi, un bene per molti.

Dopo il crollo del Muro di Berlino, lo Stato italiano, laico, ha deciso di stralciare la pena di morte dal Codice penale militare con un provvedimento che potrebbe anche essere reversibile in caso di una nuova guerra mondiale, così come la politica si adegua sempre alle necessità che via via si presentano.

Tuttavia, ci si aspetta che il Catechismo dia indicazioni al di là del tempo e della situazione geopolitica contingente, offrendo un faro morale assoluto ispirato alla Parola di Dio. Cassando in modo definitivo ogni ammissibilità della pena di morte, senza neppure accennare a particolarissime condizioni emergenziali, il Catechismo non solo si espone a obiezioni razionali difficilmente contestabili, ma precipita nel qui ed ora, dimostrandosi modificabile in base alla sensibilità del tempo.

New Dark Age
James Bridle
304 pp. Verso, July 17, 2018. $26.95. 

As I began James Bridle’s debut book New Dark Age, I took a pause and stared at a batch of headlines generated by the Google Now algorithm on my phone’s homepage. The headlines are rarely particularly useful, though I read them anyways, in spite of myself. As The Outline reported last year, Alphabet, Google’s parent company, has disclosed precious little about what’s required of publications in order for them to be featured in its Google News results. The company sources stories from tens of thousands of publications, big and small, showing little desire to remove untrustworthy or non-newsworthy results. 

I shouldn't have been surprised, then, when I hit this surreal headline from Fox News: “Google AI can predict when you’ll die with 95 percent accuracy, researchers say.” The piece described the report  of a study in which the company’s researchers conducted an analysis of data from more than 216,000 adults in order to predict patients’ potential lifespans, chances of readmission, and likely discharge dates. Their results supposedly eclipsed existing predictive models by ten percent. 

Such a strange story provoked any number of questions. What does Google get from examining patient data? How is the AI system analyzing what it’s given, and what are the consequences of its errors, at least in relation to those made by actual doctors? What would you do if Google’s computers told you your death was imminent? Even scarier – what would your doctor do, particularly in our inhumane, profit-above-everything healthcare system?

The article felt uncanny, a perfect synecdoche for the anxieties Bridle explores in New Dark Age. As an artist and author whose work explores the contested intersections of capitalism, surveillance, and computer intelligence, Bridle unravels these vexing issues across his new book. Even as he plunges deeper into the kinds of nightmarish scenarios exemplified by corporate-owned algorithmic death predictors, his mission is to stir people from a technological torpor and chart a radical reassessment of how these tools control our lives. While the book is often unsettling, and rightly so, Bridle's grim prophesies lack a clear diagnosis for forward action. It’s an outcome that's unsurprising given the enormity of what's being explored, but it still comes as a disappointment. 

Bridle’s central argument is that “Computational thinking has triumphed because it has first seduced us with its power, then befuddled us with its complexity, and finally settled into our cortexes as self-evident” (44). It's an elegant description of a trend that’s increasingly apparent: We're trapped by the limited control we have over digital tools that govern our livelihoods, while those at the top flourish thanks to their mastery over the computational forces that regulate our social and political economy. Elites have a vested self-interest in keeping these tools opaque, and as they creep further into our lives, it’s both more urgent and seemingly less possible to confront their impact, even as it feels that they allow us to know more about everything around us. “Our vision is increasingly universal, but our agency is ever more reduced,” Bridle suggests (186).

But if the information floodgates curtail our ability to resist, Bridle still overdetermines that impact by erasing meaningful political possibilities capable of reining in networked tools run amok. In a chapter exploring stock market “flash crashes,” Bridle argues that “digitisation made the markets both more opaque to noninitiates, and radically visible to those in the know.” As Bridle describes it, we’re inevitably descending towards DeutscheBank trying to increase the speed of light to make trades faster, as Hito Steyerl suggests in Factory of the Sun.

Yet Bridle ignores the possibility of a financial transaction tax, a measure that would hobble the low-margin, high-frequency trades that skim value off of the market, pennies at a time. By refusing this practical solution, Bridle sinks into the kind of all-consuming dread he elsewhere rejects, minimizing collective agency and overplaying the strength of a network that’s still of our own hand, even as it gains its own strange liveliness.

If our machines are increasingly autonomous, how should humans respond in a way that maximizes our virtues while channeling what’s useful about tools that escape our understanding? In an intriguing but underdeveloped argument, Bridle calls on people to accept a level of “practical unknowing,” asking us to recognize the network as “the best representation of [the] reality we have built, precisely because it too is so difficult to think” (76). Elsewhere, Bridle describes a similar mindset, a space he calls the “gray zone,” which “allows us to make peace with the otherwise-irreconcilable, conflicting worldviews that prevent us from taking meaningful action in the present” (214). Both thoughts grasp at something valuable, a recognition of agency within a degraded climate of misinformation, overabundance, and distractedness. But they’re not fully articulated, even as they seemingly define the pursuit of political action within Bridle’s dystopic imagination.

These concepts are better articulated by media scholar Patrick Jagoda, who names “network ambivalence” as a practical route through our indeterminate world. Jagoda suggests a way of living within a network totality “without yielding to apathy, cynicism, disengagement, or hopelessness.” His proposed method entails “a deliberate intensity, patience, and willingness to forgo quick resolution or any finality at all.” Jagoda urges us to accept discomfort and contradiction, while instantiating change through critical reflection and creation that embraces a compromised environment as a reality that must be accepted before it can be transformed.

It's a stance that finds echoes throughout New Dark Age, especially when Bridle argues, “Technology is and can be a guide and helpmate in this thinking, providing we do not privilege its output.” Learning to appreciate the virtues of technologies at our disposal, without expecting too much of their capacities, or too little of our own, is a useful approach that straddles the twin perils of neo-Luddism or accelerationism.

Much of what's most successful in New Dark Age comes as Bridle tries to enact this thinking-through-technology, offering a network psychoanalysis that reflects back the all-too-human flaws we continue to suppress elsewhere. Technology enacts “a particular set of beliefs and desires: the congruent, often unconscious dispositions of its creators,” (142) burying a vast legacy of oppression beneath a smooth, high-resolution sheen. If we follow Bridle’s advice, treating technological outputs as a starting point without diminishing our capacity for conscious intervention, we can probe and prod the algorithms that think beyond our comprehension with a desire to learn what these unsettling artifacts say about our worldviews.

Bridle does this work beautifully in his artistic output. One such work is Render Search, in which the artist sought to find people that appeared in architectural rendering photographs, a space in between the digital and physical that instantiates development, growth, and displacement. Playfully adopting the missing person poster (“Have You Seen These People?”), the work pokes at a virtual world-in-actualization, subtly reminding us that those displaced by construction are made to disappear from their homes and communities, victims of an unrecognized pursuit of capital accumulation at all costs.

If the New Dark Age is one of our own making, the product of unconscious and conscious desires, enacted in the networks we’ve brought to life, it’s too early to give into a hopelessness that sees no way out. Bridle has offered a grim prognosis, one that hits too close to home at many points in the text. He wants to offer hope, and a sense that if we attune ourselves to the strange frequencies of our computational world, we can once more find our bearings. But if Bridle wants readers to snap out of some computer-induced fever dream and awaken themselves to the undeniable need for immediate collective action, it seems like he might need to look in the mirror to convince himself such change is still possible before demanding the same of others.

Dall’Atanasio di Mostar a Henryk di Medjugorje

            

Introduzione

Diversi media hanno recentemente pubblicato la notizia che il vescovo in pensione di Varsavia-Praga e arcivescovo ad personam Henryk Hoser ha dato inizio al suo incarico di Visitatore Apostolico a Medjugorje. L’informazione stessa ha causato molte reazioni nel mondo virtuale. Ancora una volta, si è aperto uno scontro tra coloro che considerano le apparizioni di Medjugorje come verità assoluta e coloro che le considerano non autentiche. Insieme a questa notizia è stato pubblicato un altro articolo secondo cui il vescovo di Mostar-Duvno, Ratko Perić, in qualità di vescovo nel cui territorio si trova la parrocchia di Medjugorje, ha ricevuto l’arcivescovo Hoser e Luigi Pezzuto, nunzio apostolico in Bosnia-Erzegovina. Poiché egli ha espresso in questa occasione il suo rispetto per la decisione della Santa Sede, ha offerto all’arcivescovo Hoser la sua collaborazione, gli ha augurato l’abbondante aiuto di Dio nell’adempiere alla sua missione e ha poi ribadito in modo chiaro e inequivocabile qual è stata la costante posizione della Curia diocesana di Mostar, che non considera nessuna «apparizione», nessun «messaggio», nessun «segreto» e nessuna «pergamena» come autentici, compresi i primi sette o dieci giorni delle cosiddette apparizioni, le reazioni si sono trasformate in insulti e ostilità aperti.

Regina della pace o Regina dei disordini


Anche solo una rapida occhiata ai commenti fatti su alcuni dei portali più popolari, sia laici che religiosi, porta a concludere che in essi c’è pochissima compostezza e obiettività, e invece una grande quantità di sarcasmo, amarezza e insulti grossolani. Dal punto di vista laico, i toni in genere vanno dalla ridicolizzazione alla diffamazione di entrambe le parti, il che è comprensibile, in base all’approccio e alle credenziali dei commentatori. Tuttavia è molto triste osservare come sui cosiddetti portali religiosi, così come nei profili ufficiali e personali sui social network, il maggior numero di commentatori-credenti pronuncino insulti scandalosamente maleducati. A questo proposito, ciò che è particolarmente triste è il modo in cui i sostenitori delle apparizioni di Medjugorje, quelli che fanno facilmente riferimento alla Gospa di Medjugorje [cioè la Madonna] come Madre e Regina della Pace, assumono un atteggiamento così scomposto e intollerante da far gelare il sangue nelle vene a causa dei loro attacchi contro il vescovo Perić, che vanno dall’augurio che crepi, alle accuse di essere un agente del KGB, un materialista incallito e un non credente o addirittura Satana incarnato.

«Fra» Bože Radoš e il diavolo, ovvero l’amore verso i nemici alla luce della verità di Medjugorje


In questo contesto, molto scalpore ha destato in particolare un video, più precisamente un’accusa al vescovo Perić di non essere altro che il diavolo. Si tratta di un video postato sul profilo Facebook di Bože Radoš, che è ben noto ai sostenitori delle apparizioni di Medjugorje e che arbitrariamente si definisce «Fra» Bože Radoš. È un ex membro dell’Ordine francescano, che a causa della sua disobbedienza è stato dimesso 20 anni fa e sospeso da tutte le facoltà sacerdotali, ma tuttavia continua a indossare l’abito francescano e ad usurpare il ministero sacerdotale. Negli archivi del vecchio sito web delle diocesi di Mostar-Duvno e ​​Trebinje-Mrkan si legge: «Bože Radoš, congedato per decreto del Generale, il 28 febbraio 1998, confermato dalla Santa Sede il 23 marzo 1998, sospeso dal celebrare i sacramenti il ​​30 dicembre 1998. È illegalmente residente nel canonicato parrocchiale di Čapljina e svolge illegalmente il ministero in altri luoghi dell’Erzegovina».
I suoi attacchi contro il vescovo Perić non sono una novità, perché sono una costante delle sue attività pastorali illegittime, così come delle attività pastorali di alcuni altri (spesso dimessi e sospesi) francescani. Ciò può essere confermato, tra l’altro, dalla sua pubblicazione, scritta insieme agli altri «frati di Čapljina», dal titolo Il diavolo in Erzegovina. Pubblica accusa al vescovo Ratko Perić, che è un libretto pubblicato dall’Associazione di fedeli cattolici dell’Erzegovina «Mir i dobro» (Pace e bene) a Čapljina, nel 2002. Il contenuto del libretto è, giusto per informazione, tragicomico, mentre la «pace» e il «bene» non vi si ritrovano nemmeno in tracce.
Inoltre, a quale livello di manipolazione i «Frati» di Čapljina e alcuni altri «frati» della stessa mentalità e attività di «Fra» Bože sono disposti ad arrivare, lo si può vedere dal fatto che uno di loro in passato – «Fra» Stanko Pavlović – prima di essere dimesso dall’Ordine dei Frati Minori, osò fingere di essere un vescovo ed ebbe l’ardire di amministrare il sacramento della Confermazione ai candidati di Čapljina.
E’ bene aggiungere che «Fra» Bože Radoš è un ospite gradito in quei media che fanno molto per promuovere le cosiddette apparizioni di Medjugorje, e i suoi insulti contro il vescovo in questi contesti sono regolarmente presentati come coraggio e saggezza, e mai come arroganza e disobbedienza. Inoltre, a giudicare dalle sue frequenti apparizioni e attività su Facebook, non possiamo sottrarci all’impressione che, a causa delle sue numerose esibizioni e auto-promozioni, non abbia molto tempo per il rosario e il breviario.
Coerentemente con il suo modo abituale di offendere il vescovo nel modo più crudo, «Fra» Bože ha anche pubblicato il summenzionato video, che è stato visto oltre 30.000 volte dalla sua messa on-line, ha ricevuto oltre 250 commenti ed è stato condiviso circa lo stesso numero di volte. Va anche notato che «Fra» Bože ha un gran numero di seguaci, cioè che la maggior parte dei commentatori approva e supporta questo modo di esprimersi e gli insulti al vescovo Perić, e aggiunge i propri, allo stesso indirizzo. Tuttavia, grazie a Dio, c’è un buon numero di persone che esprimono il loro orrore di fronte a colpi così bassi, e ancor più ce ne sono di quelli che esprimono il loro profondo dolore per il fatto che una persona di Chiesa usi tale vocabolario, specialmente quando questo viene fatto da un «frate».

«Io sono per la pace, ma essi, appena parlo, sono per la guerra»


Ciò che vogliamo sottolineare qui è proprio questo tipo di brutto e crudo vocabolario che viene spesso usato da alcuni frati dell’Erzegovina e dai loro cloni ideologici per squalificare il vescovo Perić e chiunque non riconosca le apparizioni di Medjugorje. Ma, ancora di più, vogliamo anche sottolineare in modo autocritico che questo tipo di vocabolario provoca nervosismo e crudezza in coloro che sentono il bisogno di reagire a questo. In questa luce, siamo consapevoli che anche noi abbiamo oltrepassato il limite delle argomentazioni espresse con compostezza e siamo entrati nell’arena del ridicolizzare e sminuire «Fra» Bože e simili «frati», insieme a tutti coloro che sostengono le apparizioni di Medjugorje. Guardando agli altri in questa luce e guardando a noi stessi, possiamo osservare che questa Regina della Pace di Medjugorje è strana, così strana che lei annulla la sua stessa essenza, perché invece che per la pace, sembra che sia per la guerra. È simile a ciò che leggiamo nel salmo: «Troppo tempo ho abitato con chi detesta la pace. Io sono per la pace, ma essi, appena parlo, sono per la guerra» (Sal 120,6-7). E queste due parti probabilmente non sarebbero mai d’accordo su chi è il nemico della pace, chi parla di pace e chi è per la guerra.
Il tema delle apparizioni di Medjugorje dovrebbe, ovviamente, essere aperto a qualsiasi discussione, anche a quelle sarcastiche, perché, per sua natura, è qualcosa che non è affatto e non può mai essere considerato una credenza obbligatoria. Eppure in pratica risulta essere un’area molto pericolosa, della quale solo pochi, e raramente, osano parlare criticamente. Pertanto, è del tutto comprensibile perché alcuni dei «frati» erzegovinesi ricoprano di insulti il vescovo Perić o, come direbbero le Scritture: «La sua bocca era più dolce del burro, ma la guerra era nel suo cuore: le sue parole erano più morbide dell’olio, ma erano spade sguainate» (Sal 55,21). In questo modo, il comandamento dell’amore di Cristo verso i nostri nemici è completamente svalutato, ancor peggio è corrotto nella misura in cui si iniziano a odiare sia gli amici che i fratelli. Ci sembra che questo sia uno dei problemi fondamentali del fenomeno di Medjugorje e, in questa luce, ci permettiamo di ripetere, ancora una volta, che in tutto questo non vediamo alcuna ragione obiettivamente giustificata per chiamare la Gospa di Medjugorje Regina della Pace ma piuttosto colei che incita costantemente alla guerra.

Le colorite bugie di Medjugorje


In altre parole, gli argomenti del vescovo Ratko Perić e le prove indiscutibili fornite dall’ufficio della Curia di Mostar durante tutto il tempo delle apparizioni sono completamente accettabili per noi, poiché indicano chiaramente che le apparizioni di Medjugorje sono una semplice menzogna e manipolazione delle masse. Pertanto, è abbastanza comprensibile che, durante il suo incontro con l’arcivescovo Hoser, il vescovo abbia presentato pubblicamente e chiaramente la sua posizione, anche se sa che colui che è stato nominato Visitatore Apostolico è per il momento completamente schierato con i francescani e ha accettato senza dubbio solo la loro versione dei fatti, mentre di fronte a un bel po’ di frutti negativi di Medjugorje sta semplicemente chiudendo gli occhi. Pertanto, riteniamo necessario esaminare alcune delle cose particolarmente evidenti emerse in questi giorni, per tentare di interpretarle in un modo che appaia ragionevole.
Prima di tutto, vogliamo dire che abbiamo già affrontato la questione della credibilità delle cosiddette apparizioni di Medjugorje nel testo intitolato Gli Zeloti di Medjugorje, o come la «Gospa» contraddice la Madonna [croatoinglese] e che non c’è bisogno di aggiungere qualcosa a questo. La grande quantità di prove presentate dall’ufficio della Curia di Mostar porta semplicemente alla conclusione che il fenomeno di Medjugorje è una fabbricazione, quindi qualsiasi ulteriore discussione su questo sarebbe interessante solo se qualcuno fosse in grado di smentire queste prove. Insieme a questo, vogliamo solo sottolineare qui che il lavoro svolto finora dall’arcivescovo Hoser riguardo a Medjugorje ci sembra che sia stato assolutamente imperfetto, perché ha fatto il lavoro che gli è stato affidato in modo superficiale, prevenuto e poco serio. Ne abbiamo già parlato nei testi: Il fanatismo di Medjugorje e l’inviato papale arcivescovo Hoser e Con quale autorità l’arcivescovo Hoser proclama Medjugorje santuario? Anche riguardo a questi testi non sentiamo alcun bisogno di aggiungere o cancellare nulla. Tuttavia, sentiamo di dover commentare alcune nuove circostanze, che sono principalmente incentrate sul vescovo Perić, l’arcivescovo Hoser e papa Francesco, o sulla Santa Sede, come attori principali.
Ci poniamo la domanda: come si può comprendere correttamente la decisione della Santa Sede di nominare un visitatore apostolico e quindi, probabilmente, sollevare completamente il vescovo Perić dalla sua giurisdizione sulla parrocchia di Medjugorje? Anche se il mandato dell’arcivescovo Hoser è stato assegnato ad nutum della Santa Sede, e sebbene sia esclusivamente di carattere pastorale, non crediamo che, con questa nomina, al vescovo Perić sia lasciata una qualche autorità per amministrare quella parrocchia, che, de facto, diventa una parrocchia sotto la giurisdizione della Santa Sede. Questo potrebbe sembrare ingiusto verso il vescovo Perić, anche come un segno di declassamento e di critica, ma in realtà non deve essere così.
Prima di discutere cosa intendiamo con questo, vorremmo dire alcune parole sul vescovo Ratko Perić e su come vediamo il suo ruolo nel contesto del fenomeno di Medjugorje.

Il ruolo del vescovo Perić nel fenomeno di Medjugorje


Il vescovo Perić e i suoi più stretti collaboratori, così come il suo predecessore, il vescovo Žanić e i suoi collaboratori, hanno fatto molto per rivelare le menzogne ​​di Medjugorje, anche se molto lentamente. Mentre c’è ancora un numero molto più grande di coloro che accettano senza dubbio le apparizioni di Medjugorje come credibili, non si deve ignorare il fatto che molti stanno facendo sempre più domande e arrivano a una delle due conclusioni: che si tratti di una semplice manipolazione, oppure che non si tratti delle apparizioni della Madonna, ma di apparizioni del diavolo, come direbbe «Fra» Bože. Tuttavia, questa volta non nella persona del vescovo Perić, ma di «colui che divide», dalla testa ai piedi.
In questa luce, il ruolo del vescovo Perić e dei suoi più stretti collaboratori è lodevole, perché essi hanno dimostrato un’incredibile forza e fedeltà nella difesa dell’ortodossia, mentre i sacrifici e gli insulti che hanno dovuto sopportare e continuare a sostenere confermano il loro livello di preoccupazione nel difendere la Madre di Dio e la Madre della Chiesa dalla Regina della Pace di Medjugorje, che sta diffondendo turbamento attorno a sé. Per noi quindi, come abbiamo già detto in un precedente testo [croatoinglese], il vescovo Perić, a causa della sua chiarezza e forza, è simile a sant’Atanasio, che in difesa della vera fede dovette fuggire in esilio cinque volte a causa degli attacchi degli eretici ariani del suo tempo. Ancor meglio, a lui appartiene il titolo di «Atanasio di Mostar», attribuitogli per le stesse ragioni dal presidente della Conferenza episcopale croata, l’arcivescovo Želimir Puljić.
Queste parole di lode all’Atanasio di Mostar e ai suoi collaboratori non sono un segno di piaggeria o adulazione. Al contrario, è nostra ferma convinzione che essi meritano questo riconoscimento per i loro veramente grandi sacrifici, dato che spesso vengono lasciati soli a lottare per la vera fede contro tutti gli altri. E non solo con la sfida di Medjugorje, ma anche in molti altri campi, come la lettera circolare del vescovo Ratko Perić del 22 ottobre 2016, con il titolo: «Un promemoria ai confessori» [presentazione in italiano], in cui, unico vescovo di lingua croata, fornisce istruzioni chiare e ortodosse nell’interpretazione dell’esortazione di Papa Francesco Amoris laetitia, senza le esitazioni e i timorosi silenzi o attese che hanno avuto la maggioranza dei vescovi nel mondo. Siamo certi che tale chiarezza riguardo agli insegnamenti originali della Chiesa e il coraggio nella loro difesa sono stati largamente raggiunti dal vescovo Perić nella sua già citata battaglia con Medjugorje.
Tuttavia, vogliamo sottolineare che proviamo un certo rispetto, e forse persino un sentimento di apprezzamento, verso quei francescani che sono pronti a difendere la Gospa di Medjugorje con tutte le loro forze, perché in tutta questa storia stanno anche subendo umiliazioni e innumerevoli colpi (ma è anche vero che loro stessi ne sono regolarmente responsabili). A noi, sembrano semplicemente fanatici pronti a morire per la loro verità. Eppure, tutto questo non è qualcosa che possa essere facilmente ignorato, indipendentemente dal fatto che siamo convinti che la loro verità sia in realtà una semplice bugia. Tuttavia, anche se sono pronti a cadere nelle più basilari forme di disobbedienza, riteniamo che tali azioni da parte loro siano più comunemente derivate da una solida convinzione di agire correttamente.
Ancora una volta, torniamo al problema dell’amore cristiano e ancor più all’amore verso i nemici, perché la storia di Medjugorje mostra uno scandaloso livello di intolleranza, che oscura così il volto misericordioso del nostro Maestro e il cuore tenero di sua e nostra Madre e, di conseguenza, gli eventi attorno a Medjugorje appaiono agli osservatori esterni come un circo. E poi, questo paradigma di Medjugorje, purtroppo, viene copiato in molti altri settori della Chiesa, facendo così perdere alla Chiesa la reputazione, la credibilità e il valore della sua missione.
Desideriamo sottolineare ancora una volta che la responsabilità di una tale situazione non dipende dal vescovo Perić e dai suoi collaboratori, come spesso è asserito dai sostenitori delle apparizioni di Medjugorje, ma solo da coloro che hanno dato inizio alle bugie, coloro che hanno perseverato in queste bugie e attraverso la manipolazione dei media hanno permesso che queste si diffondessero in tutto il mondo. Poiché è il vescovo responsabile della parrocchia di Medjugorje, il vescovo Perić ha dovuto reagire a tali menzogne ​​a causa del suo ministero, e sosteniamo che ha fatto esattamente ciò che ci si aspetterebbe da qualsiasi vescovo della Chiesa cattolica.
La nomina dell’arcivescovo Hoser a Visitatore Apostolico ha poi declassato il vescovo Perić; e l’aver scelto una persona che accetta senza riserve le apparizioni di Medjugorje lo ha umiliato; e l’intervento diretto della Santa Sede ha squalificato tutti i suoi sforzi verso la verità; e tutto ciò ha avuto luogo un anno e mezzo prima del suo ritiro regolare per allontanarlo deliberatamente dalla scena pubblica così da preparare il terreno a un nuovo vescovo che sia sostenitore delle apparizioni di Medjugorje. Il tempo dirà se le cose stanno così. Tuttavia, a noi sembra che le cose potrebbero evolvere molto rapidamente in una direzione gradita al vescovo Perić.

Il fenomeno di Medjugorje tra l’Atanasio di Mostar e Henryk di Medjugorje


Innanzitutto, bisogna essere onesti e ammettere che, in sostanza, il vescovo Perić (non a causa di una sua responsabilità o di eventuali omissioni da parte sua) è stato solo nominalmente vescovo della parrocchia di Medjugorje. Parimenti, bisogna essere onesti e ammettere che non tutti i frati di Medjugorje hanno ostacolato la giurisdizione dell’Ufficio della Curia di Mostar. Tuttavia, in linea di principio e in considerazione delle intricate circostanze, si può dire che i frati di Medjugorje hanno guidato la parrocchia come hanno voluto, senza riconoscere l’autorità del vescovo e senza rispettare le sue decisioni. E spesso non hanno rispettato nemmeno l’autorità e le decisioni del Generale dell’Ordine e l’autorità e le decisioni della Santa Sede.
Tra l’altro, questa affermazione può essere comprovata dal fatto che con l’esplicita o tacita benedizione dei francescani, senza alcuna previa conoscenza e approvazione dell’Ordinario del luogo, sono nate molte comunità di carattere sospetto, dal Nucleo Centrale legato all’attuale movimento New Age dell’ex iniziatore e cervello dell’«operazione Medjugorje», «Fra» Tomislav Vlašić, fino ad una serie di altre comunità religiose, carismatiche e caritatevoli non riconosciute, considerate pericolose per la comunione ecclesiale.
Lo stesso vale per l’acclamato Festival Internazionale della Gioventù – lo Mladifest, che si tiene ogni anno dal 1° al 6 agosto, al quale affluiscono decine di migliaia di esaltati pellegrini di Medjugorje, anche se probabilmente nessuno di loro sa da quale tipo di evento blasfemo si sia sviluppato, ragion per cui non potrebbe avere il sostegno di nessuno dei vescovi del mondo. I suoi fondatori e gli organizzatori, naturalmente, non hanno bisogno di tale sostegno, perché lo trovano nelle vaste folle che vi partecipano, che non chiedono altro che di sentire qualcosa in quell’oasi di pace. L’evento a cui ci riferiamo è legato a una presunta rivelazione della Gospa di Medjugorje del 1984, in cui la Gospa informava i veggenti di essere nata il 5 agosto e che proprio in quell’anno, in quella data, avrebbe celebrato i suoi 2.000 anni. Entusiasti di questa rivelazione, i veggenti, secondo la testimonianza della veggente Marija Pavlović, decisero di preparare una grande torta di compleanno per la Gospa, decorata con candeline e molte rose di zucchero, e di portarla sulla collina delle apparizioni. La Gospa fu così toccata da questo regalo di compleanno che prese persino una delle rose di zucchero che le era stata offerta spontaneamente da uno di loro. Su una tale bizzarra mescolanza di naturale e soprannaturale, da cui è nato lo Mladifest, non c’è nulla da aggiungere, tranne che il vescovo Perić non approverebbe un’attività così pagana neanche morto. Ma ovviamente nessuno gli ha mai chiesto di farlo.
La nostra intenzione nel sottolineare tutto questo è di mostrare come in realtà le mani del vescovo Perić fossero legate, cioè, come contro una tale macchina di propaganda, capace di trasformare, senza scrupoli, un vescovo coscienzioso in un mostro, non avesse alcuno spazio di manovra per un’amministrazione regolare di Medjugorje. Proprio per questa ragione crediamo che le cose ora, e non solo in senso pastorale, si muovano nella giusta direzione.
Anche se l’arcivescovo Hoser nella sua precedente visita a Medjugorje non ha notato nessuna delle cose che abbiamo detto, ma al contrario ha fornito un sostegno senza riserve ai francescani, nella misura in cui dopo soli tre giorni a Medjugorje si è identificato con loro rivolgendosi ai fedeli con il saluto «Noi Medjugorjani», siamo convinti che presto comincerà a cambiare idea. Infatti, non appena i problemi pastorali lo costringeranno a compiere la minima mossa che non sia accettabile per i francescani e il settarismo diffuso, incontrerà ostruzionismo e opposizione. Ecco perché pensiamo che la nomina di un visitatore apostolico, e specialmente di un tale visitatore apostolico, sia un atto dello Spirito Santo, perché le intenzioni di molti cuori saranno rivelate attraverso di lui.
Inoltre, dato che il fenomeno di Medjugorje esiste per provocare tensione o la creazione dell’impressione generale che tutti coloro che credono nelle apparizioni di Medjugorje, specialmente i (disobbedienti) francescani erzegovinesi, siano martiri perseguitati a causa della cattiva coscienza e della malevolenza del vescovo Perić, la nomina di un visitatore apostolico farà quindi cessare la causa di tutte queste ingiustizie. Quindi, sarà interessante osservare cosa accadrà.

La nomina di un visitatore apostolico: un errore o una decisione saggia della Santa Sede?


Prevediamo che questo sarà l’inizio della fine dell’interesse delle masse per la destinazione di Medjugorje e quando le fonti di questo turismo religioso si prosciugheranno ci aspettiamo che anche i francescani stessi abbandoneranno la Regina della Pace. Inoltre, poiché i veggenti sono già nei loro anni maturi, è prevedibile che, dopo la loro morte, anche la sola menzione delle apparizioni non sarà abbastanza interessante, perché i pellegrini avranno appreso che la Gospa appariva su richiesta e che lei era così premurosa che posticipava persino il momento prestabilito, secondo i bisogni mutevoli dei clienti.
Certo, bisogna anche essere preparati a uno scenario di tentativi di continuare a tenere in vita la favola di Medjugorje, perché la secolare intraprendenza dei francescani potrebbe trovare nuove modalità, ad esempio, di provocare tensioni con la Santa Sede, secondo il metodo già collaudato e di successo, se e quando i rapporti con l’arcivescovo Hoser diventassero tesi. Oppure potrebbero pregare la Gospa perché conceda la grazia a dei nuovi arrivati, cosicché inizi ad apparire ad altri che facciano in modo che le apparizioni continuino di generazione in generazione. Ci aspettiamo che la decisione finale verrà presa solo dopo che avranno considerato attentamente ciò che a loro conviene di più.
In questa luce, è bene menzionare le parole di Henryk di Medjugorje prima della sua partenza dalla Polonia, cioè prima di venire a Medjugorje e iniziare il suo ministero come visitatore apostolico, sulla questione della mafia che fiorisce a Medjugorje, in particolare quella di Napoli, come da lui sottolineato. Non dubitiamo che la mafia abbia veramente trovato il suo posto a Medjugorje, eppure ci chiediamo: chi ha aperto loro le porte e chi le tiene ben aperte? Inoltre, temiamo che la mafia menzionata dall’arcivescovo Hoser sia solo un bambino prematuro rispetto ad un’altra, nascosta nell’involucro carismatico-caritatevole, che mons. Željko Majić, il vicario generale della diocesi di Mostar-Duvno, come persona ben informata, menziona nel suo acuto e interessante articolo intitolato: Razlikovati pšenicu od kukolja (Distinguere il grano dalla zizzania). Se questa mafia ha preso alla gola influenti dignitari vaticani di alto rango, che hanno il potere e l’interesse di chiamare bugie la verità, forse il tempo lo dirà, ma molti piccoli ciottoli lanciati lungo la strada portano a quella fonte oscura.
Per non sbagliare, qui sottolineiamo chiaramente che non stiamo pensando a papa Francesco o all’arcivescovo Hoser, ma piuttosto intuiamo che un futuro prevedibile mostrerà che la decisione del papa è molto più saggia e molto più profonda di quanto possa sembrare in questo momento. Cioè, a noi, come osservatori, mancano molti pezzi per completare il mosaico, mentre lui ha un quadro completo o almeno più completo e, in questa luce, sa perché sta facendo quello che sta facendo. Potremmo dire che l’ingenuo e inoffensivo Henryk di Medjugorje è ideale per servire allo scopo del papa nel realizzare ciò che intende, lontano dalle luci delle telecamere.
Questa conclusione può essere sostenuta dal fatto che il papa ha ripetutamente, in modo diretto e sarcastico, parlato pubblicamente delle apparizioni di Medjugorje, come menzionato da mons. Željko Majić nel suo articolo. Così, il 14 novembre 2013, nella sua omelia mattutina durante la Messa, ha detto: «Io conosco un veggente, una veggente che riceve lettere della Madonna, messaggi della Madonna. Ma, guarda, la Madonna è madre! E ama tutti noi. Ma non è un capo ufficio della posta, per inviare messaggi tutti i giorni». E il 9 giugno 2015, sempre nell’omelia dell’Eucaristia mattutina, ha detto: «Ma dove sono i veggenti che ci dicono oggi la lettera che la Madonna manderà alle 4 del pomeriggio? E vivono di questo». Che questa affermazione non sia stata detta in modo spericolato, ma piuttosto meditato, si può vedere nel fatto che l’ha ripetuta quasi per intero tre anni e mezzo dopo, il 13 maggio 2017, quando ha detto: «Preferisco la Madonna come madre, nostra madre, non la Madonna capo dell’ufficio telegrafico, che invia messaggi ogni giorno alla tale ora. Questa non è la madre di Gesù. E queste presunte apparizioni non hanno valore. Questo lo dico come opinione personale». Insieme a questo, si dovrebbe aggiungere un estratto della sua conversazione con l’Unione dei Superiori Generali il 25 novembre 2016, quando ha detto: «Questa moda della Madonna come una superstar, che come protagonista si pone al centro, non è cattolica» (L’Osservatore Romano, 10.2.2017, p. 4). Anche se in nessuna di queste affermazioni il papa ha menzionato esplicitamente Medjugorje, dal contenuto dei messaggi e dalle circostanze delle apparizioni di Medjugorje, è più che ovvio che si riferiscono ad esso [nota del traduttore: in realtà, il 13 maggio 2017 il papa ha detto nella maniera più chiara ed esplicita che si riferiva a Medjugorje].
Giungiamo a questa conclusione anche per il fatto che il papa ha nominato l’arcivescovo Hoser ad nutum Sanctae Sedis, il che significa che il suo ministero può durare anni, ma che può in qualsiasi momento, appena la Santa Sede lo decida, anche cessare. Ciò significa che l’arcivescovo Hoser non sarà nelle condizioni di prendere facilmente iniziative di comune accordo con i francescani, cosa che probabilmente vorrebbe fare con tutto il cuore in questo momento, ma, prima di agire, dovrà pensare se le sue mosse saranno gradite al papa, tenendo sempre presente che il papa non vede il fenomeno di Medjugorje con gli stessi occhi di Hoser. Inoltre, il papa ha ulteriormente limitato il suo ministero, avendo stabilito che è puramente pastorale, come affermato nel comunicato stampa dell’Ufficio stampa della Santa Sede del 31 maggio 2018, e ha quindi chiarito che non deve più lasciarsi andare ad affermazioni al di fuori di questo contesto, come ha invece fatto in precedenza.

A mo’ di conclusione


Detto questo, crediamo veramente che la decisione del papa sia molto più saggia e di vasta portata di quanto sembra ora, e che, in quanto tale, equilibri sia il lato dottrinale che quello pastorale del fenomeno di Medjugorje. In altre parole, sembra che papa Francesco abbia aperto un nuovo capitolo, forse finale, di Medjugorje, che esteriormente potrebbe sembrare andare a favore dei sostenitori delle apparizioni di Medjugorje, facendo presagire il riconoscimento di Medjugorje come santuario, il che appare anche come un declassamento del vescovo Perić e un netto rifiuto di tutto ciò che egli ha fatto negli ultimi decenni. Ma è possibile che, in realtà, attraverso le facoltà sufficienti ma molto limitate date all’arcivescovo Hoser, stia solo cercando di creare una situazione ordinaria e regolare a Medjugorje, sapendo bene che l’interesse per il fenomeno di Medjugorje sarà significativamente ridotto, con i fiumi di quei pellegrini che sono alla ricerca di miracoli più che di Dio, così come in tutti quei potenti gruppi di ambito carismatico-caritatevole di gola spirituale, i cui motivi di esistenza cessano nel momento in cui l’interesse per i loro «prodotti» diminuisce.
Che noi si sia visto giusto o meno, desideriamo comunque esprimere al vescovo Perić la nostra profonda gratitudine per la sua perseveranza nella vera fede, al tramonto del suo ministero episcopale, parafrasando le parole della Sacra Scrittura: Hai combattuto la buona battaglia; hai (quasi) terminato la tua corsa (episcopale), hai conservato la (tua e nostra) fede! (2 Tim 4,7). Con ulteriore gratitudine a lui e ai suoi collaboratori, aggiungiamo: Ora mi resta solo la corona di giustizia che il Signore, giusto giudice, mi consegnerà in quel giorno; e non solo a me, ma anche a tutti coloro che attendono con amore la sua manifestazione (2 Tim 4,8).

Cardinale Schönborn: La Chiesa ha "riconosciuto ufficialmente i buoni frutti di Medjugorje”


Per la prima volta nella storia delle presunte apparizioni di Medjugorje, l'annuale Festa della Gioventù (dal 1° al 6 di agosto) è iniziato con una Messa celebrata dal nunzio apostolico di Bosnia e Herzegovina, arcivescovo Luigi Pezzuto.

Le date del festival risalgono a una [falsa] rivelazione di Medjugorje secondo cui Nostra Signora sarebbe nata il 5 agosto dell'anno 16 a.C. [e pertanto avrebbe avuto 9 anni quando Cristo nacque nel 7 a.C.].

Il cardinale pro-gay di Vienna Schönborn ha inviato i suoi saluto alla Festa di quest'anno.

Secondo lui, la nomina da parte di papa Francesco di un inviato permanente a Medjugorje è "segno di grande apprezzamento e riconoscimento". La Chiesa ha "riconosciuto ufficialmente i buoni frutti di Medjugorje”, ha aggiunto.

SUPER EX AL PAPA: IL CARD. FARRELL DEVE LASCIARE. ED ELENCA TUTTE LE ONDE DELLA MAREA LGBT CURIALE…

                       

Cari amici e nemici di Stilum Curiae, Dopo un breve periodo di vacanza torniamo – sia pure a mezzo servizio – in attività. Lo facciamo con un articolo piuttosto esplosivo di Super Ex (Ex di Movimento per la vita, di Avvenire, e di altre cose, ma, ancora, non ex cattolico; e vista la situazione, mica è poco) sullo scandalo McCarrick, sul cardinale Farrell, e in generale sulla ondata arcobaleno che sembra sommergere la Chiesa. Un’impressione che abbiamo avuto anche noi, spesso, negli ultimi anni, e che ci fa rimpiangere la silenziosa opera di pulizia compiuta da Benedetto XVI. Ma ecco Super Ex:
Caro Tosatti,
proviamo ad imitare il quotidiano Repubblica. Potrebbe essere un buon modo per farsi leggere da Bergoglio, assiduo lettore del giornale fondato da Eugenio Scalfari.

Tempo addietro Repubblica amava porre domande, con una certa insistenza, al premier Silvio Berlusconi, anche sulla sua vita personale, non propriamente integerrima.
Le domande da porre a Bergoglio sono queste: Kevin Joseph Farrell è davvero un sacerdote meritevole della berretta cardinalizia? Siamo certi che sia la persona adatta per ricoprire il ruolo di prefetto del nuovo Dicastero per i laici, la famiglia e la vita? E’, Farrell, l’ecclesiastico più indicato per esprimersi su questioni come l’affettività, il matrimonio, la morale sessuale?
Queste domande potrebbero nascere dalla semplice constatazione che il neocardinale tanto in auge per la sua adesione entusiasta ad Amoris laetitia esprime spesso concezioni eterodosse, e contribuisce potentemente ad imprimere una svolta pro LGBT nella Chiesa cattolica.
Ma c’è molto di più. Ci sono dei fatti veri e propri, fatti angoscianti di cui i media americani discutono da giorni, che in Italia sono stati magistralmente riassunti dal giornalista cattolico Riccardo Cascioli: “Farrell è stato per sei anni vicario generale di McCarrick (il cardinale progressista colpevole di molestie omosex e pedofile, ndr) a Washington, ci ha vissuto fianco a fianco (nello stesso appartamento, per volere di McCarrik, ndr) quando i seminaristi venivano insidiati dal porporato; e lo stesso McCarrick ha lanciato Farrell nella carriera ecclesiastica. Oggi Farrell dice di non aver mai sospettato di nulla né mai nessuno gli ha riferito di lamentele o chiacchiere intorno all’arcivescovo.Viste le dimensioni dei misfatti di McCarrick e le voci che si inseguivano da anni, la versione del cardinale Farrell ha dell’incredibile. Ci sono solo due possibilità: o mente spudoratamente in quanto complice di McCarrick o è talmente fuori dalla realtà di non accorgersi di quanto accade sotto i suoi occhi. Entrambe le ipotesi sono gravissime e da sole consiglierebbero le dimissioni immediate dall’incarico in Vaticano, ma la coincidenza con l’Incontro mondiale delle Famiglie, con la svolta gay che gli si vuole dare, rende la posizione di Farrell ancora più insostenibile”.
Proviamo a parafrasare: o Farrell è un cretino (e allora perchè nominarlo cardinale ed affidargli così importanti incarichi?), oppure, al contrario, è stato nominato vescovo e raccomandato per la berretta cardinalizia da un altro cardinale, il McCarrick, criminale conclamato, per una certa comunanza, se non di vita, quantomeno di idee (è quello che pensano la gran parte degli americani,. poco convinti dalle argomentazioni di Farrell.
A pensare male, diceva qualcuno, si fa peccato, però spesso ci si prende. Ma è difficile non pensare male, quando tutti gli indizi portano sempre nello stesso punto.
Qualcuno ricorderà che circa un anno orsono, proprio all’inizio dell’estate, un monsignore di curia fu colto in flagrante durante un festino gay a base di sesso e di dorga. Era il segretario di uno dei più autorevoli cardinali pro Bergoglio, Francesco Coccopalmerio, cui era stata da poco affidata la stesura di un trattatello esplicativo del capitolo VIII di Amoris laetitia. Anche in quel caso si venne a sapere che il Coccopalmerio nulla sapeva dei gusti e delle tendenze del suo fido segretario, conosciuto e frequentato da lungi anni, e raccomandato per la nomina a vescovo!
Finita qui? No, purtroppo. Tutti gli assidui lettore di questo blog conosceranno, almeno di nome, il cardinal Oscar Rodriguez Maradiaga, grande elettore e consigliere di Bergoglio, a suo tempo fustigatore poco elegante e molto sommario dei cardinali firmatari dei Dubia (gente, grazie a Dio, mai coinvolta in alcun genere di scandali).
Anche lui, guarda un po’, si è scelto un vice di cui ignorava le cattive abitudini, finchè queste non sono emerse alla luce del sole. E’ di pochi giorni fa, infatti, la rinuncia di monsignor Juan Josè Pineda, vice proprio di Maradiaga presso la diocesi di Tegucigalpa. Le ragioni alla base dell’abbandono del vescovo ausiliare sono connesse a “comportamenti non appropriati”, espressione che sembra alludere ad abusi sessuali ai danni di seminaristi.
La svolta LGBT nel
