CASHIERS-HIGHLANDS PLATEAU -- Cashiers resident Elizabeth Fletcher’s movie star Bernese mountain dog, Keeper, is scheduled to make two plateau appearances this Saturday, Dec. 8. Keeper plays “Meatball” in a new Paramount Pictures’ major motion picture, “Instant Family,” which opened last month. In the movie, Meatball is the dog of childless couple “Pete and Ellie” (played by Mark Wahlberg and Rose Byrne), who stumble into the world of foster care adoption.

Keeper is scheduled to join two dozen other Bernese mountain dogs and their owners in the noon Saturday Cashiers Christmas Parade. “Berners,” as they are nicknamed, were bred to pull carts on farms in Switzerland and many will be pulling holiday-decorated small carts in the parade, including Keeper.

After the parade, Keeper and his owner, Elizabeth Fletcher, will attend a special 4 p.m. showing of “Instant Family” at the Highlands Playhouse at 362 Oak St. in Highlands. Prior to the showing, Fletcher will host a Q & A with Keeper at the playhouse and folks can find out what it was like being a part of a major Hollywood production.

“I’m overwhelmed the (Highlands) theater would do this,” Fletcher said. “This is my home, so it makes me feel really special to have the community behind us. I’m really honored.”

After the showing, Keeper, who is expected to wear the red bow tie Fletcher purchased for the movie’s red carpet showing in Los Angeles, will be available for souvenir photos and “paw-o-graphs.” Although last month’s LA red carpet showing was canceled due to the massive fires in California at the time, Keeper did wear the bow tie during a special LA screening for foster children and children evacuated from the fires.

“This (Dec. 8) event is a fundraiser benefitting the Highlands Playhouse, so show your support for cinema on the plateau and take part in this special afternoon,” Playhouse Managing Director Lance Matzke said in an email. Tickets are $10 and donations will be accepted.

          ‘The Invention of the Antichrist’      Cache   Translate Page      

In the 1920s and ’30s, Karl Barth, the renowned Swiss Reformed theologian, began what became a decades-long critique of the important Polish-German Jesuit, Erich Przywara. But with the rise of fascism, their disagreement soon reached beyond the theology classroom and took on some of the confessional tensions of Reformation-era contests. Barth, looking at the growing appeal of Nazism, held that humanity retains little of the goodness it had before the Fall. Przywara, though forcefully anti-Nazi, was less bleak. Their debate went on for decades, and though much of it took place under the shadow of war and genocide, it ended up in a surprisingly hopeful place.

Karl Barth (1886–1968), the son of a Basel theology professor and violinist, was educated in the liberal Protestantism of the day, which followed Friedrich Schleiermacher (1768–1834) in emphasizing religion as private, inner feeling. Barth rejected this view when he saw Christians claim divine support for their side in World War I. His own teachers, including the prominent theologian Adolf von Harnack, signed a 1914 declaration supporting the German war effort. If this is how Christians interpret God’s Word when left to their own inner feelings, Barth decided, then the Word will be tweaked to suit private and political advantage. He concluded that humanity could not be guided by its feelings. We must instead adjust our thoughts and feelings to God’s revelation in Christ and Scripture. Barth developed his strong Christology in his thirteen-volume Church Dogmatics (1931–1967), and his views on humanity’s sinfulness became the linchpin in his debate with Przywara. Barth was also the principal author of the Barmen Declaration (1934), urging Christians to resist Nazism. He imprudently sent the letter directly to Hitler. In 1935, he was forced to leave Germany and took a position at the University of Basel, where he remained for the rest of his life.

Przywara (1889–1972), the son of a Polish father and German mother, was educated in music and theology in the Netherlands, taught in Austria and Germany, and was a rising star in Catholic thought when he, like Barth, began protesting fascism. In 1933, he explained that the Christian “Kingdom” was absolutely incompatible with the Third Reich. In 1934, while Barth was writing the Barmen Declaration, Przywara argued against church accommodation of Hitler’s government. By 1935, the Nazis had him under surveillance, eventually closing down his work and causing medical and emotional problems from which he never fully recovered. He nonetheless remained prolific through the 1960s, writing forty books and eight hundred articles and reviews, and influencing such thinkers as Karl Rahner and Josef Pieper.

It was Przywara’s work on human nature that provoked Barth’s initial criticism. Przywara set out his ideas in his 1926-7 Polarity and more fully in his 1931 Analogy of Being. But it was not Przywara who first came up with the idea that human nature partakes analogously of God’s “being.” That idea began with Thomas Aquinas. Its premise was that God is the ground and reason for everything. There could have been nothing at all, but instead there’s something; and the reason that there’s something is God. One might say God is what makes existence itself possible, from the existence of time to the existence of peaches. So something of God, the source of existence, can be found in everything and everyone that exists. God, Aquinas wrote, is “intimate” within us. In the charmed phrase of German theologian Christian Link, God cannot be found in the world any more than Charles Dickens can be found in his novels, yet he is there throughout and is the reason they exist.

But of course God is also radically different from humanity. We are material beings; he is immaterial. We live in time; he is outside time. Nevertheless, there is a kind of kinship between us. As Scripture puts it, we are made in his “image.” Or as Przywara puts it, following Aquinas, we are “analogous” to the divine “being.” Drawing on both Aquinas and Augustine, Przywara held that God is both “in us” and “beyond us.”

One important consequence of this is that, even after the Fall, humanity retains something of our original kinship with God. Because of our intimacy with God, we have the capacity to understand his Word. Przywara was careful to say what this does not mean. It does not mean we can develop moral living in our own way solely through human abilities. But we do have the capacity to grasp God’s way as it is revealed in Scripture. So grace comes to us “doubly,” through God’s redemptive work and through our created capacities to follow his Word in our worldly activities—for instance, in fighting for love and justice against Nazism.

This was what Barth would not countenance. In his 1931 Christian Dogmatics I, he called Przywara’s analogy of being “the invention of the Antichrist” and declared that “because of it one cannot become Catholic.”

 

For Aquinas and Przywara, what remains after the Fall is human nature, analogous of God. For Barth, what remains is God’s grace.

But this is not where the debate really began. In 1929, Barth had invited Przywara to lecture to his seminar on Aquinas at the University of Münster and, again, in 1931 in Bonn. The 1929 course protocols show that Barth’s reception was warm. In a letter to the Swiss theologian Eduard Thurneysen, Barth called Przywara’s presentation “a masterpiece.” Yet in two lectures later that year, he began to criticize Przywara’s position.

Barth’s issue was fallenness. He thought Aquinas’s “analogy of being” was a dangerous idea because it placed fallen humanity too close to God. Przywara, Barth said, aggrandized humankind, allowing us to imagine ourselves as “like” God, and therefore capable of acting rightly on our own. Any look at modern European history should dispel that illusion. In Barth’s view, the analogy of being downplayed God’s otherness. The only real bridge between humanity and the wholly other God is Jesus, fully human and fully divine. But the analogy of being suggests that human nature itself offers us another bridge to God. It suggests that, because we are in God’s image, we can understand God’s nature just by using our natural capacities.

Barth could not accept this. All we know of God and world, he insisted, comes from his Word and revelation in Christ, not from reason or other natural capacities. This knowledge is not “given to us in the givenness of history.” If we could figure God and the world out on our own, the Gospel would be reduced to a kind of public-service announcement reminding us to do what we already know we should.

This was also Barth’s objection to Augustine, whose work substantially influenced Przywara. Augustine included good works (along with grace) in the path to redemption. Barth feared that this implied a continuity between human efforts and God’s saving acts, whereas, in his view, grace and human effort are opposed. To save us, God sets “a barrier against all that is our own action” and “cuts against the grain of our existence.” The ugly grain of our existence was on full display in the politics of the day. Despite their supposed kinship with the Creator, human beings in Europe were flocking to fascism. If this was not evidence of man’s radical depravity after the Fall, what would be? Between December 1935 and March 1936, the Nazi police put Przywara’s offices at the journal Stimmen der Zeit (Voices of the Day) under surveillance and closed it permanently in 1941.

Przywara was puzzled by this line of argument. How did we get from Augustine and Aquinas to Hitler? Przywara had already written in 1927 that the analogy of being doesn’t suggest an undue similarity between humanity and God. It means only that the wholly other God reveals something of himself both in revelation and in creation. This means that our God-created humanity and God’s revelation cannot be altogether opposed as Barth had suggested they should be. They work together. To use the traditional formulation, “Grace does not destroy but supports and perfects nature.” Przywara repeated: grace comes “doubly,” through God’s revelation and the human capacity, endowed by God, to receive that revelation.

Barth, for his part, continued to insist that grace came singly, through revelation alone, but this yielded an unintended consequence. If we can rely on nothing in our created nature to understand revelation, how do we know that we understand it right? How do we know that our moral judgments, based on interpretations of Scripture, are sound?

Barth had painted himself into the same kind of corner that Immanuel Kant had. Kant had claimed that the human mind comes equipped with preset categories like length and time that we project onto the world. Because our minds conceptualize things as having length and enduring in time, we project those features onto the world “out there,” but the human mind has no direct access to that “outside” world. It produces only internal images—a “home screening,” in the theologian John Betz’s wonderful phrase. So how do we know whether that home screening is accurate? Like Kant’s philosophy, Barth’s theology seems to isolate fallen humanity from God—or at least to prevent us from knowing if we are understanding his revelation the way he intends for it to be understood. Perhaps another bridge between God and humanity—one that would allow him to communicate his will to us—was needed after all.

In spite of this weakness in Barth’s argument, his critique did prod Catholics to clarify their own positions. Gottlieb Söhngen, influential in advancing the career of Joseph Ratzinger, emphasized that we are like God only analogously: the analogy of being kept the proper distance between God and his creation. On the other hand, he worried that Barth’s position ruled out the proper closeness. It would turn whatever relationship we had with God into what he called “a purely external allocation”—an add-on rather than something foundational to human existence. No one, including Barth, wanted to say that. Everyone agreed that our relationship with God was a constant feature of the human condition. So what the analogy of being allowed us to understand, according to Söhngen, was our own nature, not God’s. To understand anything about God, we needed revelation. This was a small move toward Barth and away from Przywara, who held that our nature as creatures in God’s image does permit us knowledge of him.

Would Barth be persuaded by Söhngen’s overtures? In Church Dogmatics II, Barth conceded that if Söhngen was right, “then naturally I must withdraw my earlier statement that I regard the analogia entis (the analogy of being) as ‘the invention of the Antichrist.’” But somewhat cagily, Barth added that he wasn’t sure Söhngen’s views represented those of the Catholic Church: “I am not aware that this particular doctrine of the analogia entis is to be found anywhere else in the Roman Catholic Church.” In a sense, Barth was right. Never having been called upon to defend Aquinas’s analogy of being against a critique like Barth’s, the church had not yet laid out a thorough, modern explanation of it.

Hans Urs von Balthasar, Przywara’s student and the friend who, in 1947, brought Przywara to Switzerland to recover from maladies provoked by continuous Nazi surveillance, took up the challenge. In The Theology of Karl Barth, Balthasar defended the analogy of being, explaining that God’s transcendent otherness is undiminished by his intimacy in us. It is “a suspended middle” between an absolutely transcendent, unknowable God and an immanent, knowable God. Balthasar believed that after the publication of his and Söhngen’s books “Barth’s attitude gradually changed” to accept the analogy of being “within the context of an overarching analogy of faith.”

Was he right? No one can be sure. Barth did not discuss the analogy of being in any book written after Balthasar’s work was published. In his final years, Barth confessed to having said “nasty” things about the analogy of being. But at Princeton in 1962 and at Tübingen in 1964, he maintained his opposition to Przywara’s Analogy of Being.

Yet in his late works, Barth did incorporate a different sort of analogy into his own theology—not the analogy of being but of being-in-Christ, in his grace. He recognized that, without some analogical connectedness to God, we could have no basis on which to choose one sin-distorted interpretation of Scripture over another. To avoid relativism and hopelessness, Barth wrote in Christian Dogmatics III that humanity is created with the capacity, even disposition, to receive God’s Word and grace: our “being and nature…is destined, prepared, and equipped” for grace. This preparedness remains even after the Fall.

For Aquinas and Przywara, what remains after the Fall is human nature, analogous of God. For Barth, what remains is God’s grace. Because God was determined to redeem us all along and this determination always remained “in” us, we are equipped to receive Christ and Scripture and be redeemed. Moreover, because humanity is created to receive God’s Word, each of us can be a partner in God’s grace. While we cannot add anything to that grace, our faith can bear witness to God’s determination to save humanity. The one who bears witness in this way refers “not to himself, but to God who points him to his neighbor.”

This was a far more optimistic outlook than might have been anticipated from Barth’s oft-repeated opposition to Przywara. Looking at humanity’s violent record, Barth was right to insist that we could not be left to our own devices. Przywara replied, But we are not alone: our very nature connects us to our Creator. This prodded Barth to develop his own understanding of how God makes it possible for us to receive his revelation. In the end, Barth—for all his insistence on human sinfulness—did recognize that God must have given us something that allowed us to understand and respond to his Word.

          Skier Mikaela Shiffrin clinches historic win      Cache   Translate Page      

She made her name as a slalom specialist but Mikaela Shiffrin won an historic super-G at Lake Louise Sunday to become the first skier to win races in all six World Cup disciplines.

The 23-year stormed to a first ever super-G title to clinch her 46th World Cup victory and move into fourth in the women's all-time list.

Only Switzerland's Vreni Schneider (55), Austria's Annemarie Moser-Proll (62) and US teammate Lindsey Vonn (82) have won more World Cup races on the women's circuit.

"It was one of my big goals to win in every discipline when I first started racing...one of those goals that you don't think you're ever going to achieve, and it's incredible," Shiffrin said.

In only her ninth career World Cup super-G start, Shiffrin took an aggressive line to beat Norway's Ragnhild Mowinckel by 0.77 seconds with Germany's Viktoria Rebensburg third.

The technical specialist won her first World Cup downhill race in Lake Louise last season and has now triumphed in slalom, parallel slalom, giant slalom, super-G, downhill and alpine combined.

She also became the seventh woman to win in skiing's five different disciplines of downhill, super-G, giant slalom, slalom and combined.

Shiffrin, bidding for a third straight World Cup overall crown, has already won slalom races in Levi, Finland and Killington, Vermont this season.

She will be going for a fourth straight world slalom title at alpine skiing's biennial World Championships, in Are, Sweden in February.

'Huge blow'

Vonn, who is chasing Ingemar Stenmark's record of 86 World Cup wins, missed the race weekend at Lake Louise after injuring her knee in training last month.

On Friday she backtracked on her decision to retire at the end of the season with the announcement she will race at her favorite Lake Louise location in 2019.

The Canadian venue has been so successful for Vonn it has earned the nickname "Lake Lindsey" -- she has won 18 of her 44 starts on the Alberta track.

Vonn said in a video posted on social media that missing the Lake Louise stop was "devastating" and a "huge blow."

"Hopefully, I break the record this season and can have fun," she added.

"I don't want the record to determine the level of success I've had in my career. I want to push out of the starting gate (at Lake Louise), even if I'm not there to win. Lake Louise is just really special to me. It's not about the record. It's not about, 'Oh, well you said you retired.' I really don't care what people think. I really don't. I want to do it for myself."

As for your last sentence, take a guess whether I agree with your insight and prediction: our young children are learning Mandarin, and we want them to learn Russian later on. They are also learning German, one of my family's ancestral languages and the only foreign language that I can write, read, and speak reasonably well. But the drumbeat of dire news from the Islamic Republic of Germany increasingly makes that seem like a foolish investment of time and money. Our conversations with Germans -- both in Germany and immigrants to the USA from Germany -- makes it seem pointless to harbor hope for their future. The Germans aren't just committing suicide, they're sanctimonious about it. Maybe eastern Germany or more rural parts of Austria or Switzerland will be suitable places for North American whites to re-settle. But you're probably right to focus only on countries farther to the east as possible places to land.

          DeVos touts Swiss take on apprenticeships, but approach remains limited in the U.S.      Cache   Translate Page      

WOODBRIDGE, Va. -- Education Secretary Betsy DeVos and other top Trump administration officials on Monday visited a college classroom where students receive paid, on-the-job training -- and potential employment later -- after just weeks of classroom instruction.

The course at Northern Virginia Community College’s campus here is part of Amazon Web Services’ technical apprenticeship program for veterans of the U.S. military, which the college created last year. It’s the sort of hands-on alternative to the traditional four-year degree that DeVos has been pushing for. The program also reflects the best aspects of worker training in Switzerland, DeVos said, where companies “don’t ask for permission from the government to partner with educators.”

The Swiss system of worker training has been something of a fixation for the education secretary. On Monday, after stopping by classrooms at the Woodbridge campus, she signed an agreement between U.S. and Swiss officials to exchange information and practices on apprenticeships. And 22 Swiss companies with U.S. operations separately pledged to support thousands of opportunities for apprenticeships or other forms of worker training in this country.

The hope is that models like the Amazon program can help the U.S. establish a system of apprenticeships that lets more students get an immediate payoff from postsecondary education without taking on serious loan debt. However, the current reality is that examples like the program at Northern Virginia Community College aren’t common in the U.S. and are usually the product of a unique set of circumstances. And the region already had a high demand for workers with technical skills before Amazon announced it would locate one of two new headquarters there.

Many community colleges offer short-term certificate programs for training demanded by local companies. But few have the sort of relationship Northern Virginia Community College has with Amazon, which proposed the Woodbridge program. And a relatively limited number of companies are putting up the money or have the know-how to launch large-scale apprenticeship programs themselves.

“Scaling is the big challenge with apprenticeships,” said Mary Alice McCarthy, director of the Center on Education and Skills at New America’s Education Policy Program.

McCarthy said a strong national system of apprenticeships requires clear industry standards for skills training, a solid financing strategy and intermediaries who can connect employers with colleges.

The U.S. Department of Education believes the recent update to the Perkins career education law, passed this summer, can play a role in addressing that last component. Perkins allows states and local entities to use federal grant money to fund entities that connect businesses with colleges. That could mean paying local nonprofit organizations or business councils, or funding a position at colleges.

“One of the key components of the Swiss model provides that nexus between business and education,” said Scott Stump, the department’s assistant secretary for career, technical and adult education.

It’s not just Amazon that is working with local colleges to prepare workers. In a roundtable after the signing ceremony Monday, Greg Scheu, president of the Americas for Swiss firm ABB, said the company has helped build curricula for classroom training in Michigan, North Carolina and Arkansas, where it has heavy concentrations of workers.

“The amount of training and retraining really requires a partnership with local universities,” he said.

The federal government made has made new financial commitments to apprenticeships in recent years. For example, a September congressional spending bill included an additional $15 million for apprenticeship grants in fiscal year 2019. But McCarthy said the feds need to figure out a larger financing strategy to help make those local partnerships more viable.

“If we want these programs to be on-ramps to college degrees and continue advances in education, we need to figure that piece out,” she said.

          Pioneering HIV Researcher Mathilde Krim Remembered For Her Activism      Cache   Translate Page      
With the death of biologist Mathilde Krim on Monday, at the age of 91 at her home in New York, the world lost a pioneering scientist, activist and fundraiser in AIDS research. She is being widely praised this week for her clarity, compassion and leadership. Amid the panic, confusion and discrimination of the HIV epidemic's earliest days, Krim stood out — using science and straight talk, in the 1980s and beyond, to dispel fear, stigma, and misinformation among politicians and the public. "She has likely literally saved hundreds of thousands if not millions of lives because of what she did during the initial days and years of the epidemic," says Corey Johnson , speaker of the New York City Council. "Every single one of us living with HIV today who are on medicines, where now we can live and thrive — it's because of people like Dr.Mathilde Krim." Born in Italy in 1926, Krim received her doctorate in biology from the University of Geneva in Switzerland. She became a steadfast activist for

          ‘El Chapo’ trial gives inside look at his rise to power      Cache   Translate Page      

NEW YORK – The U.S. trial of Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman has offered a screenplay-worthy picture of the lawlessness and excesses during his rise to power as Mexico’s most infamous drug lord.

Since the trial got underway on Nov. 13, witnesses have described how Guzman used tunnels dug under the border and fake jalapeno cans to smuggle tons of cocaine into the United States during the 1990s and early 2000s.

The Sinaloa cartel, sometimes referred to by insiders as “The Federation,” made hundreds of millions of dollars, most of it in U.S. currency collected in such volume it had to be stashed in safe houses while the gang figured out what to do with it. Guzman spent some of it on a private zoo, a diamond-encrusted pistol and paying off police and politicians.

That’s all according to a cast of characters who have taken the witness stand ranging from former cartel members to a Colombian drug kingpin with a freakish face that he chose to alter with plastic surgery in a failed attempt to stay under the radar.

Here’s a look at some testimony highlights from the trial, which is expected to last until early next year:

Smuggling by the ton

The Sinaloa cartel had many crafty ways to smuggle drugs across the border, but perhaps none were craftier than La Comadre brand pepper cans.

Former cartel member Miguel Angel Martinez testified in federal court in Brooklyn he helped supervise a warehouse in Mexico City where workers hid cocaine in the cans so it could be trucked over the border.

The trucks carried 3,000 cans at a time to Los Angeles, he said. He estimated about 25 to 30 tons of cocaine worth up to $500 million got across the border each year.

Behind the scenes, the workers packing the coke into the cans “got intoxicated because whenever you would press the kilos, it would release cocaine into the air.”

Proceeds ended up in Tijuana, where Guzman would send his three private jets every month to pick it up, Martinez said. On average, each plane would carry up to $10 million home.

The cash, he said, helped pay for luxuries like an Acapulco beach house featuring a private zoo and a trip to Switzerland for Guzman to get an exotic “anti-aging” treatment.

Bribery as usual

A turncoat cartel member named Jesus Zambada took the stand to describe how he kept watch over tons of cocaine stashed in a Mexico City warehouse. But a more important job for him was buying off authorities at a cost of about $300,000 a month – a price that earned Guzman a police escort after one of his notorious escapes from prison.

He testified that Guzman looked troubled at the sight of the Mexico City police approaching the car. “Don’t worry about it,” Zambada told Guzman. “These are our people. No one is going to touch us from here on out.”

Testimony suggested the prisons were on the take, too. Martinez claimed when he and Guzman visited a drug boss behind bars, other inmates had put together a lavish meal.

“There was a music group and they had everything, whatever you would want to eat. Whiskey, cognac,” Martinez said. “You could choose between lobster and sirloin and pheasant.”

The mask

The latest star witness for the government has been more notable for his appearance than his testimony.

Former Colombian drug lord Juan Carlos Ramirez Abadia is perhaps best known for his plastic surgery. He told the jury last week that he has had at least three surgeries to change his appearance.

The work altered “my jawbone, my cheekbones, my eyes, my mouth, my ears, my nose,” he said.

His testimony made a case for ranking him at the top of the narco-pantheon with Guzman: He said he smuggled 400,000 kilos (881,840 pounds), ordered 150 killings and amassed a fortune so large that he forfeited $1 billion after his arrest in Brazil in 2007.

Ramirez Abadia said he had a cartel business model that included a division entirely devoted to using drug money to bribe authorities to “not do their jobs” to enforce drug laws. He testified that it was clear Guzman had similar arrangements when he flew planes loaded with Colombian cocaine to Mexico, where they were greeted by police officers who helped unload the goods.

Ramirez Abadia resumes testifying on Monday.

          Ibis Switzerland hotels offer social media pros to manage guests' Instagram accounts      Cache   Translate Page      

Ibis hotels in Switzerland are offering guests a new service called Social Media Sitter. With this, customers can use "Instagram professionals" provided by the hotel to manage their Instagram profile while on vacation, enabling guests to "enjoy the city without a smartphone in front of the face," the company explains on its website.

The Social Media Sitter service is now available at Ibis hotels in Zurich and Geneva. The company lists several "Instagram professionals" on its site who specialize in categories that include fashion, travel, beauty, culture, art, and more.

The Instagram sitter shares "the best posts" on the guest's profile, though it's unclear how the service works. Presumably the Social Media Sitter is provided with the customer's username and password; the company's video suggests the sitter will follow the guests to capture candid shots and will manage the account's comments and likes on the user's behalf.

          Liverpool’s midfield problem is very real for Jurgen Klopp – but looks to have a simple solution      Cache   Translate Page      
In the aftermath of Liverpool’s Champions League defeat to Paris Saint-Germain, Jurgen Klopp was asked whether he felt there was an issue with his midfield and whether it had been overrun by the French club.“We’ve conceded five goals [in the league this season] and you talk about how our midfield is ‘overrun’?,” responded a visibly irked Reds manager, who added: “Sorry, I didn’t see that. We could have scored more goals, but I don’t see any problems in midfield to be honest.”The midfield that lined up against PSG was the same one that started the Champions League final against Real Madrid, featuring Jordan Henderson, Gini Wijnaldum and James Milner.Klopp’s claim about having no problems with that midfield is dubious given that he signed Fabinho, Naby Keita and desperately wanted Nabil Fekir in the summer. The German effectively sought a whole new core, so is clearly aware of the need to upgrade in the middle of the park.Of course, a manager’s words shouldn't always be taken at face value, and Klopp was unlikely to have ever said he had an issue with his midfield in a press conference. Actions speak louder than words, just as they did in the summer when he publicly backed Loris Karius but then took the opportunity to upgrade his goalkeeper by signing Alisson.The issuesThe defeat in Paris was Liverpool’s fifth European ‘away’ loss in a row, including the final in Kiev and semi-final in Rome last season. Of those defeats, Milner and Wijnaldum started all five, accompanied by Henderson in three, and Liverpool lostin Naples when Naby Keita went off early due to injury.Liverpool have failed to score and mustered just four shots from open play in a trio of defeats on their European travels this season – all against Red Star Belgrade. Between them last season, Henderson, Milner and Wijnaldum scored just four goals in a combined 148 appearances. The issue comes when the front three of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mané and Roberto Firmino don’t score – it’s difficult to see where the goals will come from elsewhere.SEE ALSOMo problems? The pros and cons of Jurgen Klopp using Mohamed Salah as a No.9For many Liverpool supporters, those three aforementioned midfielders are too similar in style: none of them are known for their creativity or goalscoring prowess, and a trophy-winning team needs more than what they can offer. It’s a fair appraisal.According to football coach Simon Brundish, the Henderson-Milner-Wijnaldum triumvirate yields an average of 1.66 points per game when playing alongside each other, which equates to 63 points over a season. That stat backs up what many think: it’s a mid-table midfield, lacking the quality to create and provide for the forwards.Additionally, Brundish calculates that passes into the box per-90-minutes this season are most frequent when Naby Keita, Xherdan Shaqiri and Fabinho play together – in some instances, more than twice as many. The use of the ‘passes into the box’ statistic is far more representative than the oft-reported ‘forward passes’ stat, where short-range diagonals often skew analyses.Missing menLast season, Liverpool’s top-scoring central midfielders were Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Philippe Coutinho and Emre Can. Shorn of all three, and with Keita and Fabinho seemingly not trusted fully by the manager yet, Klopp has most often turned to his reliable but one-dimensional trio so far this campaign.Coutinho was key in the first half of 2017/18, providing creativity in the centre whether playing as one of the midfield three or on the left of the frontline. After Coutinho’s January departure, Oxlade-Chamberlain excelled as the most advanced central midfielder.Now there’s a problem with the link between midfield and attack – something Klopp has sought to remedy with the use of Xherdan Shaqiri. But, having subbed the Switzerland international at half-time against Southampton when playing him in a central role, he has since used him only on the right of the attack.Klopp wants and needs Shaqiri in the side, but doesn’t trust him in the centre. So the summer signing goes to the right, which means moving Mohamed Salah to No.9 and dropping Roberto Firmino into the No.10 role. Liverpool then occupy a 4-2-3-1 shape – Klopp’s trademark system at Dortmund, and which would likely have been his desired one this season with Fekir as a No.10 and Shaqiri more of a squad option.SEE ALSOHow Roberto Firmino is still proving himself to be Liverpool's most important player as a No.10Solutions?Having Shaqiri in the side makes sense, but in recent games Liverpool’s forwards have looked off the pace – Firmino and Salah particularly, with both subbed against Everton. So perhaps in the short-term, Klopp would be best reverting back to 4-3-3, therefore enabling him to start three of his attacking quartet and rotate accordingly.For instance, a midfield of Fabinho, Wijnaldum and Keita would provide better balance than the aforementioned Henderson-Wijnaldum-Milner combination. But there’s another element to Klopp’s conundrum: he seems to only trust Fabinho in a double-pivot midfield, joking after the home win over Red Star that it was a birthday present for the Brazilian to play in his preferred formation.Meanwhile, Henderson has always struggled in such a midfield setup, going back to the days of Brendan Rodgers. The Liverpool captain became a new player when Rodgers moved to a midfield three and played Steven Gerrard in a holding role.It’s certainly a muddle at the moment. Perhaps it will remain that way until the new year too, when both Keita and Fabinho should be more settled and there could even be a January arrival to solve the issue.Longer term there does seem one obvious solution: 4-2-3-1, with Fabinho and Keita as the two-man midfield. Both of the new signings have played that system at previous clubs and appear to have complementary qualities: Fabinho being the more holding of the two, with Keita the more progressive, box-to-box midfielder.Signing a No.10 would let Firmino return to the No.9 role that he excelled in last season, and also restore Salah back on the right where he had the most productive season for any Liverpool player in the club’s history.How’s that knee, Nabil?New features you’d love on FourFourTwo.com

          Christmas Time After Loss      Cache   Translate Page      

The holidays and especially Christmas time after a loss can be very challenging. Filled with family gatherings and wishes including words such as ‘merry’, ‘happy’ or ‘grateful’ might you want to scream and run for cover. This is where extreme self-care is required. First Christmas I remember the first Christmas time after my daughter died. My whole family came from Switzerland to Sydney to be with us. We drove to the Hunter Valley, the luscious wine region not to far north, where we rented a house for the days around Christmas and my birthday. It was meant to be a joyous time of celebration and being together away from the city. Taking care of an almost 4 months-old – A’Mya’s twin sister – meant there was the obvious joyousness around her, a small baby. It also meant night-time feeding for me. There were however also the not so obvious issues simmering under the surface: our grief, different for each and every person, my mother’s depression and the family dynamics that were there from the beginning of time. Related Post: The Evolution Of Grief: Grieving In The Seventh Year Grief is ever-present, even if you don’t realize it My personal grief was leaking out through waves of emotionality. I can’t speak for others but there was definitely tension in the air. I do not believe that this was only due to our family dynamics. My mother’s state of health caused an additional source of stress, grief around her loss of health. We tried to live up to the Christmas spirit and attempted to enjoy each other’s company. We spent about equal amounts of time achieving this high and mighty goal as we spent stressing about it. Extreme self-care I didn’t know or remember at the time that looking after my needs was what was needed. From what I’ve learnt growing up, being with family meant postponing my own needs for the sake of the group. I remember as a young adult being called ‘egotistical’ when announcing I was going to have a bath (I had very bad atopic eczema and the only thing that soothed the itchiness was a hot bath). What I know now is that the most important question in times of stress – and Christmas time counts as a potentially stressful time of the year – is What do I need right now? And how can I make sure I give myself what I need? Related Post: Self Care: Surviving the Holidays Self-care practice If you’re not used to asking yourself this question, you might initially find it challenging to know what you need. If that’s the case, you might find it easier to know what you DON’T need by listening to your body. You will have noticed times when you felt situational discomfort, for example, experienced as a pit in the stomach or a headache. These are symptoms of situation that are not what you need right now. Take note of those. On the other hand, you will now become aware of situations that suit your needs. They make you either feel relaxed, happy or at ease. When you’re grieving, you are already running a daily marathon. You might simply not have the strength for the extra effort it takes to attend a family Christmas lunch, where you are faced with children running around and be expected to happy for everyone else. If you know that ahead of time, excuse yourself according to what’s needed depending on your family situation and expectations. Some families might understand when you explain truthfully what’s going on. Other families might require a less detailed explanation to avoid further stress.

Let’s say you decided to attend a family gathering and it turns out that you have exceeded your energy and want to leave. If you’ve thought this through before going, you know how to handle it and avoid the extra challenge of coming up with an excuse. My eighth Christmas The way we celebrate Christmas has changed significantly over the past eight years. This year, we will have a more casual family dinner at the beginning of December. The actual Christmas holidays are spent as everyone needs or wants it. For us, this means spending some days in a nice hotel in the mountains and hoping for snow. This year I started thinking about what it is that I need early enough to feel relaxed and at ease with the upcoming holidays.   Photo by Chris Benson on Unsplash

          Can England win UEFA Nations League? Bookies cast their vote after semi-final draw      Cache   Translate Page      

A resurgent Netherlands team is all that is standing between England and a place in the final of the first ever UEFA Nations League, and the bookies are backing the Three Lions to bring the Dutch back down to Earth.

To Win UEFA Nations LeagueEngland7/4£30: Bet £10 Get £30 in Free BetsBet £10 Get £30.

The final four of the Nations League has thrown up a few surprises, none more so than the appearance of a Netherlands team who looked to set to be involved in a battle against relegation from the top tier after being paired with Germany and world champions France.

However, they were able to upstage Les Bleus in order to win the three-team group and advance to the final four, and they will now look to continue their climb back up the international ladder by eliminating an England team that avenged the World Cup exit at the hands of Croatia by eliminating the Croatians and Spain from their group.

The bookies are not expecting that to happen though.

England remain favourites to win the inaugural UEFA Nations League, but they are no longer sole leaders in the market because they are now joined on 7/4 by European champions Portugal, who have been paired with surprise package Switzerland in the semi-finals.

In terms of match betting, England are 13/10 with William Hill to get the better of the Netherlands in 90 minutes, with a victory for the Dutch priced up at 15/8 and the draw available at 11/5 at this time.

The Three Lions are odds-on favourites ‘To Qualify’ for the final at 4/6, with the Netherlands 11/10 to spring an upset and book their first appearance in a major international final since losing the 2010 World Cup Final against Spain.

In the other tie, Portugal are 4/6 to get the job done in 90 minutes and 1/3 to advance from the semi-finals, with Switzerland 9/4 to pull off a shock victory and qualify for the Nations League final.

Problems caused by low water levels on the Rhine River have gone from bad to worse for German chemical companies. 
BASF says it has closed its toluene diisocyanate facility in Ludwigshafen, Germany—several hundred kilometers up the Rhine from the North Sea—because record low water levels are preventing barges from delivering enough raw material. BASF says it had to shut the polyurethane chemical plant despite transferring as many shipments as it can from the river to pipeline, trucks, and rail. Restarting the plant will depend on improved water levels, BASF says, adding that it has no plans to shut any other plants. 
The low water is affecting many German chemical companies dotting the Rhine as well as firms further upriver in Switzerland. Rather than recover from low flow during a dry summer, river levels have continued to drop...

          The 6th Anilao Underwater Shootout      Cache   Translate Page      






Underwater photography has always been an awesome niche that I haven’t touched on because for starters, the equipment you need to take shots underwater come at a pretty hefty price and two, I can’t swim. I am a bit sad because our country has the most diverse underwater subjects, creatures, wrecks and just about any fish there is in the ocean and to be in the midst of all these things and not see them at the same time, is just a whole lot of frustration for me. Good thing some of the most amazing photographers from around the world are converging in Mabini Batangas for the 6th Edition of the Anilao Underwater Shootout. This is a competition organized by the Department of Tourism in cooperation with the Local Goverment of Mabini Batangas and the Resort Owners Association of Mabini (ROAM).





Mind you last year they have had 175 participants from 17 different countries like Singapore, China, Thailand, Japan, Malaysia, Taiwan, Korea, Turkey, Portugal, USA, Switzerland, Germany, Hong Kong, France, Australia, Canada and the Philippines. It was won by Lilian Koh a female photograper from Singapore (Open Class Champion) and PJ Aristorenas from the Philippines who got his Macro shot of a skeleton shrimp win first place.





The prize is not a joke. They’ve got 40,000 US dollars worth of dive packages, diving and photography equipment, gears and accessories. This is part of the reason why they have exceeded the number of participants this year. It’s like the Grand Prix of underwater photography, running from November 28 til December 1, 2018. They had to go through hundreds of photos to choose the champion this year, and boy they didn’t disappoint!






Asec Roberto Alabado III says “For this competition it will showcase our country, our dive spots, as a sustainable tourism destination. Last year, we had about 12% our GDP contributed to tourism. For this year we have 241 participants who come from 24 countries so this is like a mini UN scene you’re seeing.”


Check out the highlights of my trip and the event here!





The judges include John Thet, Ellen Cuylaerts, William Tan, Indra Swari and famed underwater genius Laurent Ballesta. They look at the manner people dive, the quality of the photos, to show the beauty of the animal, to showcase the beauty of Anilao. The judges even said they wanted to learn because the standard here is high. The silent rule is, a right photo is better than a good photo so there will be almost no photo manipulation as we have to be strict about it. True enough there were amazing, it has to be different, to wow, not just taking photographs. A lot of these photographers were inspired so they all came out with beautiful photos. They are all shot naturally, stunning even in their own environment. Every year the competition is getting tougher and the photographers are getting even more skilled, but they never forget nature. The support coming from the resorts are all making this successful because even with that increase of contestants, they still were able to accommodate it. The Department of Tourism is planning to duplicate this in other provinces because this one is successful, so I am really excited about the other emerging sites like Leyte, Dumaguete, and other provinces.


Ellen Cuylaerts says “I was blown away by the diversity, I go from one place to another and say wow again just in Anilao. Everybody works together in making sure this is sustainable, I am glad I am excited until now for you to see what they got from just one place.”


Willam Tan adds “I just arrived yesterday and I dived once and I have seen a lot of creatures that I have never seen before, even if this isn’t my first time, I would be happy to go back!”


Now that it has been a very successful installment this 2018, they have no where to go but up! I am also excited about what the DOT and Dive Philippines has planned for the other parts of the country that have not yet been developed as a diving destination. We really have so much promise, and their people are exemplary in hosting this event, the whole DOT and local government wants this same successful hosting to be replicated in other provinces so they too could be dive havens like Anilao. Make it happen, make it happen real soon!





Thank you so much Dive Philippines and Department of Tourism! This was so much fun for photography people like me, the prizes and the experience is just amazing! Hope to see you next year!

Forget standings that put wealthy countries ahead of poor ones on the path to development, we’re all in this together

If you were asked to name the most prosperous countries in the world, you’d probably reach for a familiar list. It would start with the Scandinavian social democracies, the Netherlands or Switzerland, meander across to Canada, and end up somewhere between Australia and New Zealand.

Such a thought process would be completely valid. These nations regularly feature at or near the top of the growing number of prosperity “league tables” that aim to tell us who’s getting it right for their citizens. Without doubt, these places are better than most at providing foundations for a good life for the majority of fortunate inhabitants.

          Leading Emerging Markets Real Estate Platform Lamudi Receives Investment from Ringier AG and Axel Springer      Cache   Translate Page      

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Lamudi, one of the leading real estate platforms today, announced that the company has recently welcomed two of the world’s largest media and online classifieds companies, Axel Springer SE and Ringier, as new investors. Both companies will share a seat in the advisory board, which will for now be taken over by Ringier. The funding amount is not made public, but Kian Moini, Co-Founder and CEO of Lamudi, states that “the majority of funding can and will be spent on growth given the company’s comfortable financial situation and a clear path to breakeven.”

Launched in late 2013 with Rocket Internet, Lamudi is a leading global real estate platform focusing exclusively on emerging markets. The fast-growing platform has active property portals available in Asia (Philippines, Indonesia, Bangladesh, and Sri Lanka) and Latin America (Mexico, Colombia, Peru). Lamudi counts well-known investors including Asia Pacific Internet Group (APACIG), a joint venture of Rocket Internet and Ooredoo, Holtzbrinck Ventures, and Tengelmann Ventures.

"We have proven to be of high value to consumers and industry players along the search and marketing of real estate. The new funding round will help us accelerate that, as well as significantly expand our efforts to add value along the transaction,” Kian Moini says. “Beyond the capital, we look forward to benefiting from the learnings and knowledge of the marketplaces and transactional property businesses which are part of the portfolios of Axel Springer and Ringier.”

Ringier AG, Switzerland's leading international media enterprise, is a prominent digital marketplaces investor in emerging markets across CEE, Africa, and SEA. Robin Lingg, Head of Marketplaces at Ringier, states “Ringier stands for investing in sustainable value creation. Lamudi very much matches our vision, as well as our interest in localized business models and country footprint. We have been deeply impressed by the company’s operative level of sophistication, its global and local management team’s capabilities, and eagerness to create value. We believe that Kian and his team will drive significant change in the real estate industry in SEA and Mexico.”

Andreas Wiele, President Classifieds Media Axel Springer SE, adds “The team of Lamudi has built, under the leadership of Kian Moini, a fast-growing business in attractive markets. As one of the largest operators in the digital real estate space, we are convinced that we can help to further this development with our know-how and expertise.”
“With this latest round of funding, we're positive that Lamudi, which is already positioned as the number one player in the market, will continue its growth path more aggressively in the Philippines,” says Lamudi Philippines CEO Bhavna Suresh. "It will fast-track our development into the provinces and help bring more industry practitioners online, thus making sure their businesses flourish. We are connectors and we believe that through digital, we bring transparency to the real estate market. This funding is going to help us move the needle much further in this regard."

We need more than a tv debate on the future of Britain and Europe.

lead Screenshot: the seven-way BBC election debate, May 2017. YouTube.

“I don’t think there is a silver bullet, but the market-place of ideas is at the heart of democracy. We all bring ideas and opinions into that market-place and we talk and discuss, and we argue, but we bargain and we compromise. That is what is collapsing.”  Matthew Goodwin on preventing the rage of the US parcel-bomber from spreading, BBC2 Newsnight, October 26, 2018

After ducking out of the televised seven-way general election debate of 2017, on the grounds that “the debates where the politicians are squabbling amongst themselves don’t do anything for the process of electioneering”, Theresa May gained a reputation for ‘not doing debate’. The Brexit tv debate she has proposed for December 9 in front of millions of viewers who will have no say in the outcome, was “consuming Westminster’s political advisers and the nation’s broadcasters” four days ago, but has not yet been agreed. Caroline Lucas, calling for another public vote on Brexit is taking a principled position on this: saying that any debate "must be cross-party, featuring a diverse range of voices representing every nation, as well as every stance on this deal and our relationship with the EU". The BBC version appears to be “10 prominent supporters of May’s deal and 10 opponents who would have the chance to ask questions”, described as “messy” by Labour, since the opposition would precisely be seen as squabbling among themselves. But as Craig Oliver, David Cameron’s former director of communications put it, a television debate is not a debate: “It becomes a basic method of message delivery rather than a real debate.”

Meanwhile, the real debate with which Theresa May has not engaged during her lonely tour of duty in one-way persuasion, is surely the one at the heart of a liberal democracy: democratic debate leading to compromise between legitimate political adversaries. Setting aside her preference for conducting the Brexit process as a secretive Whitehall operation, everything May has done since inheriting the binary referendum result on the UK’s future relationship to the EU has been an avoidance of debate, from the resistance of the UK government to seeking parliamentary approval for Article 50 or to a “meaningful debate” on the final deal, to the ministerial power grab over the Withdrawal Bill and secretive plans for trade deals, the marginalisation of the devolved nations, the refusal of plan-B discussions, and the insistence that “Brexit means Brexit” through months and years in which it has become increasingly clear that no-one really knows what Brexit means.

Yesterday like the proverbial worm, the despised and marginalised ‘squabbling politicians’, turned, aided by carefully timed advice from the Advocate General to the European Court of Justice. This was the first mention of anyone officially involved in the negotiations that Britain might change its mind. Faced by a no-deal, a Member-State could change its intention to withdraw from the EU and revoke Article 50, since Article 50 is invoked in the first place “to notify the European Council of ‘its intention’– and not of its decision – to withdraw, and such an intention may change.” Not only this, but in accordance with our parliamentary sovereignty, and, Manuel Campos Sánchez-Bordona adds, in the interests of European integration, the decision indeed rests with the squabbling politicians of a Member State to choose to “reverse its initial decision.”

Today, May’s ‘triple defeat’ by parliament has elicited a warning from leading Brexit-backing Cabinet Minister, Liam Fox, that Remainer MPs are trying to “steal Brexit from the British people” which he describes as a “democratic affront”. But the truth is that MP’s supporting the legal action in Luxembourg, like Caroline Lucas and Chris Bryant, in their campaign for a second referendum, have been fighting a valiant battle against the odds and the Government, to give the British people a say. Under the desert conditions for democracy created by those conducting the Brexit negotiations, they are the ones who have insisted on keeping some sort of public space open and ticking. Bryant’s response to the legal advice was to express the hope that the final say on Brexit would be handed back to the public, “because only the people of the United Kingdom can sort this out.” It is being argued that the Advocate General’s opinion, by the same token, gives the EU every reason to extend Article 50 for such an outcome, since a choice to remain made by the people might well be considered a stronger mandate than a decision to remain made by MPs alone.

But whether Brexit is to be stolen from the British people or sorted out by them, the invocation of a unitary people’s will in both cases should raise alarm bells. Just how should a large and diverse, not to mention increasingly polarised people “change its mind” or “have a say”? Albert Weale’s pithy answer to the question, 'Can 'a people' have 'a will"? is decisively in the negative There is no singular will of the people emerging from a plurality of peopleThere is no one super-individual – the people – that has changed its mindThere is no will of the people independently of the rules used to combine different opinions”. He reminds us that a people does not change its mind, but that in a democracy, under a set of rules chosen in a decision that is supremely political, people do. Whatever the outcome to the roller coaster in which we are now engaged and even at this late and bewildering stage, we can only begin to “take back control” to the extent that our voices can finally be heard in a way that can persuade and effect meaningful change. The question, for both parliament and people, is what is a “meaningful debate”?

My own conviction is that all selective versions of a Brexit debate proliferate enemy images. We see only too well the cumulative dehumanising impact on ‘migrants’ when they are only ever spoken about, and, in the Windrush case for example, how shocking the effect when we finally hear directly from them. The speed at which “Europeans” began to be sucked into the “hostile environment” came as another, more recent shock. Don’t we need a debate that can “out”, identify and encompass all these points of view, one that brings Leavers and Remainers, ordinary and elite, face to face across all the boundaries and borders so far erected by the multiple toxic polarisations of the issue? 

This would be a public debate at least as ambitious and inclusive as the Scottish referendum debate was at its best. One that included the 16 to 18 year olds who were included in that process, and not in the EU referendum, on the grounds that this is their future we are talking about. A debate that welcomes the voices of the many migrants and fellow-Europeans in our midst, elite and ordinary as well. But above all, voices open to each other in all their diversity, willing to listen, even to care, and yes, even to change their minds.

What is a “meaningful debate” ?

Only a comprehensive, extended and inclusive People’s Debate can effect this process of citizen empowerment. Anthony Barnett’s ‘open letter to Remainers’ this June on openDemocracy was the first sign of movement towards the kind of listening that would be involved. By September, Neal Lawson was on openDemocracy warning supporters of the People’s Vote to be careful what they wished for, and extending Barnett’s argument in the direction of a four-point agenda for democratising the process that included citizens’ assemblies, a constitutional convention for the UK and a new policy agenda for Europe. Lawson also demanded a “systemic domestic policy response to the causes of Brexit”. Recently, as the Brexit deadlines threatened, another breakthrough moment was Caroline Lucas’s closing contribution to the Channel 4 Big Brexit Debate: What does the UK really think? as a key proponent of the People’s Vote:

“ What we need to be doing is recognising as well that many of the people who voted ‘leave’ have very legitimate grievances that need to be tackled. So the People’s Vote campaign isn’t just saying  – ‘Let’s just swap and see if we can get a vote like this that changes the balance…’. It’s massively important that the People’s Vote campaign and all of us who want to seize the opportunity for people to have a say, recognise that this is not about turning the clock back two years, but about saying let us make sure that we address those underlying reasons that drove so many people to feel that the only solution was to leave the EU, when in fact leaving the EU will make things worse for them.”

Fellow People’s Vote advocate and openDemocracy columnist, Mary Kaldor, reiterated this point in her advice to the Labour Party: “if we are to address the real concerns of the leave voters we need to be inside the EU campaigning for a change of rules.” But she also called for “a genuine constitutional debate throughout the country – a debate about the kind of society we want to live in and how to tackle the deep-seated problems linked to jobs, housing, health, and, above all, democracy that led to the howl of anguish represented by the Brexit vote.”

But it took Gordon Brown, in his capacity as former UK prime minister, to go further in thinking about what is needed over and above any second public vote or even beyond a general election, if we are to have a democratic Brexit process at last. Divisions could “merely worsen” in an already “bitterly divided country”, since “at least two and possibly many more years of acrimonious EU negotiations still lie ahead”, he warns, in To calm the Brexit storm, we must listen to the UK’s views again, FT, November 16.

Because “the deadlock in parliament seems unlikely to be broken by MPs alone”, Brown proposes bringing together in each region a representative panel of a few hundred citizens, together constituting a “platform to allow discussion of important issues such as immigration, sovereignty, the state of our industrial towns and regions. Through it, by exploring both the causes and consequences of Brexit, we can see whether any consensus can be forged.”

Brown proposes the creation of a “new kind of royal commission” in order to be credible, authoritative and impartial. But I would argue instead for parliamentarians to become joint custodians of this new politics of persuasion in a constitution that devolved their most precious function to the citizens ­– what Albert Weale calls the “institutionalised debate in which competing views are expressed within a set of rules”. Citizens already have voices in ways without parallel before the internet era. Becoming the guarantors and enablers of such an inclusive, pluralist debate could be the best way to rescue democratic representation from its ‘gatekeeping’ crisis, with a useful knock-on effect on an overweening media.

All it would take is the simple acknowledgement that who picks the subjects and frames the debate is the democratic crux of the matter, as the political theorist Stuart White pointed out on openDemocracy three years ago in his survey of constitutional conventions:

“If we are in a constitutional moment, then it is not appropriate to let the key questions be settled just through the processes of ‘normal’ politics. Democratic theory says that this is a time when ‘We the people’ have a right to settle what happens precisely because what is at stake is a set of very basic questions about how we are ruled. A constitutional convention (CC) is potentially one way of giving ‘We the people’ this leading role…  If a convention is to be genuinely ‘people-led’ mustn’t its agenda be responsive to the people? Allowing the convention a wide remit, or allowing it to identify issues for itself, gives us all an opportunity to campaign to the convention to address issues we think important. It draws us all into the discussion and thereby helps to create a democratic constitutional moment… A key principle here is that devolution and decentralisation ought to be bottom-up processes with real accountability to local people.”

White had an encouraging message for us when it came to Labour and the Greens:

“First, as I think Labour (and the Greens) already accept, membership of the convention – or conventions – should be drawn largely from members of the general public, chosen by lot but in a way that is designed to be broadly representative of the population. (Exactly which population? The standard assumption is that the relevant population consists of UK citizens, but David Owen argues forcefully that non-citizen residents and non-residents should also have representation in a CC.)”

Gordon Brown’s choice of subjects for his debating platform, ought he thinks to “particularly examine those contentious issues where the situation has changed significantly since 2016”, citing both “national identity” and freedom of movement. Yet if Brown acknowledges the evidence of shifting opinions on the latter, Theresa May certainly does not.  We learn that she rejects any Norway-style compromise deal with the Labour party. Why? On the grounds that ending freedom of movement is the hardest of the prime minister’s red lines. Again why? – we don’t know. Maybe it is for the same reason that Kramp-Karrenbauer, hailed as the most Merkel-like of her successor candidates, has announced that she would be much “stricter” on migration than Merkel.

But can’t we do better than that? Couldn’t we hope instead, taking inspiration from Ada Colau’s PAH movement, that one advantage of a People’s Debate over a People’s Vote is the chance to include non-citizen residents and non-residents in this inclusive, empowering national debate? And that those pluralist encounters might similarly lead in a mutually enabling direction?

Brown’s proposal is a breakthrough, first and foremost, in the recognition that Brexit is a historic process in which people need to have a say. It pays the referendum due respect for being a democratic prompt for a “unique consultation”, a multi-faceted process of exchange that “by opening a dialogue across the country and engaging in a constructive, outward-looking conversation about our future” might help us discover “a road back to a more cohesive country, reuniting around shared values and rediscovered common interests.”

How not to frame a democratic debate

“So we need to think about what institutions, what mechanisms can we put in place that support that market-place of ideas. And that means mixing our friendship groups and our social networks – it means having better political leadership – it means starting early at university and at school level and making sure people are exposed to different perspectives…” Matthew Goodwin on preventing the rage of the US parcel-bomber from spreading, BBC2 Newsnight, October 26, 2018

If this is what is needed then one way not to frame that People’s Debate is highlighted by the interesting spat that recently broke out on openDemocracy among other places, between academics protesting at a panel debate billed for December 6 by Claire Fox’s Academy of Ideas and UnHerd.

A number of academics, journalists and commentators are planning to take part in a ‘debate’ originally titled and intended to answer the question: “Is Rising Ethnic Diversity a Threat to the West?”. Speakers include Matthew Goodwin, Eric Kaufmann, Claire Fox, Trevor Phillips and David Aaronovitch. (The title has now changed.)

Their critics accuse them of framing diversity as a threat, when it is perfectly possible to “discuss far right language without using it yourself”.  Their open letter protests that: "This debate shuts itself down, as no other alternative factor or scenario is identified as a ‘threat’, and it is hard to recognise much in the way of a diversity of opinion on a panel where most of the speakers are on the record as blaming immigration and multiculturalism for complex and multi-faceted social problems ". In the comment spaces of openDemocracy, the ongoing argument soon arrives at the key issue of democratic debate: “The people hosting this debate, so narrowly framed in such a way, seemingly provide a platform for arguments that can only draw one possible and predefined conclusion. So. Not much of a 'debate' then...”,“To reiterate, we are not seeking to shut down debate or evade difficult arguments – these issues are widely discussed in academia and in public fora. We are simply asking that we do not give yet more ground to those who seek to shift the blame for systemic failures onto communities who are already subject to oppression and hostility, and legitimise hate and scapegoating as if that is analysis.”

Critics of the critics, for their part, are determined to defend free speech, “Because in order to think we have to be free to speak. Freedom of thought and freedom of speech is a dialectical process in which we express and explore ideas, and as a society how we reach solutions for complex issues. Having to tolerate ideas that you do not agree with is the cost of freedom of speech.”

A dialectical process is one in which both sides cross boundaries, and a third term emerges which goes beyond them, into new territory. It's certainly what is needed. But how exactly can this take place? With polling indicating a widening gulf between Remain voters determined to ‘stop Brexit’ and Leave voters reconciling themselves to crashing out, what can stop this runaway process of polarisation?

Some of us have been asking this for some time.

On openDemocracy the indefatigable journalists, Adam Ramsay, Peter Geoghegan and others, who have for many months been investigating questions about the funding and the political influences behind the Leave campaigns, have recently secured the grim satisfaction of the Electoral Commission belatedly referring Aaron Banks to the National Crime Agency for investigation. Whatever the outcome – and Laura Kuenssberg told us on the same day that this was “unlikely to affect the Brexit process” – it is precisely at this point that we need to remind ourselves of the article Adam Ramsay wrote a year ago, to say, “Remainers: don’t use our investigations as an excuse”– an excuse, that is, not to ask much deeper questions about why they lost the EU referendum to 17 million voters in the first place.

One of the speakers participating in the Academy of Ideas/UnHerd debate, Matthew Goodwin, has been making exactly the same important point. Goodwin complained this August about “a clear and concerted attempt to try and delegitimize the result by implying that either voters were duped or that the Leave campaign was crooked; and absolutely no engagement whatsoever with the growing pile of evidence that we now have on why people actually voted for Brexit.” At the time he concluded, “To many on the liberal left – Brexit is to be opposed not understood.”

Goodwin is an expert in the deep roots of English euroscepticism, the rise of UKIP and the Brexit result. His disappointment that the referendum didn't pave the way for a long-overdue national debate focused on addressing the divides, inequalities and grievances that had led to this moment is palpable and surely justified. What better candidate might one seek for framing a Brexit People’s Debate, particularly as together with Roger Eatwell, Goodwin has just published a new book entitled National Populism: The Revolt Against Liberal Democracy, promoted  as a “compelling case for serious, respectful engagement with the supporters and ideas of national populism.”

The signs were promising. Here were authors willing to challenge the longue durée of  “the deep-rooted suspicion of the ‘masses’ which lies at the heart of liberal democracy”.  Here we have not only the expertise and the research base, but the manifest concern for the people they were studying and commitment to reversing their political disenfranchisement. Roger Eatwell’s The rising tide of national populism: we need to talk seriously about immigration, summarises the key democracy argument that runs through the book for openDemocracy, and urges a braver generation of politicians to embark on “serious talk about immigration”. Matthew Goodwin, publishing his overview on UnHerd on October 23, ends with a refreshing call for “more room for deliberation and input from across society through devolution, the roll-out of citizens initiatives or making greater use of referendums at the local level.”

On that same day, however, openDemocracy published the open letter citing Goodwin as one of the speakers and organisers of the debate planned for December 6 and originally billed, “Is Rising Ethnic Diversity a Threat to the West?” Could it really be that at this critical conjuncture, some of our best intellectuals, commentators and journalists, including those most alert to ‘national populist’ alienation, were seemingly absorbed in another round of “How can we play with xenophobia without being xenophobic ?”

Is an answer to be found in Goodwin and Eatwell’s accounts of National Populism. Or might they instead give us just what we need to frame our inclusive, national, People’s Debate on Brexit and migration?

‘National populism’ – what is going on?

James Meek  in the October 11 issue of the LRB had raised his own concerns over Goodwin’s framing of the Brexit debate. Pointing out that his reading of Brexit tended to oppose “ordinary Leave voters against an arrogant Remainer elite as if those were the two sides at issue”, Meek argued that in doing this, Goodwin not only overlooked, “ordinary Remain voters, many of whom, though typically younger and better educated, feel as powerless, angry and betrayed as their counterparts on the other side”, but also ignored “an arrogant Leave elite, the Brexiteers”.  Every day brings further revelations about their motivation, role and reach at work in British politics and its decision-making processes. Surely, for example, it is important for the British public, and not them alone, to be alert to the foreign and domestic backers of Tommy Robinson as well as to his plans?

But looking more closely at Goodwin’s argument in UnHerd, there is one additional strand in his framing of the Brexit debate here which sure enough leads him inexorably to “Diversity [as] a Threat”, despite the fact that as a filter, it can only be self-defeating with regard to the very “deliberation and input from across society” which Goodwin and Eatwell seek. It is an argument that by the same token plunges us back into the increasingly stark choice of our times between horizontal empowerment and the monocultural National Us with which my argument began.

The strand begins by narrowing in on a particular definition of the UK’s excluded and unrepresented:

“ you will see record numbers of women and ethnic minorities in the corridors of power. This should be applauded. But when it comes to others in society, who have also been the most likely to vote for national populists ­– the working-class and non-graduates – it is an entirely different story.”

These are the people that Trump, Farage, Salvini and Le Pen claim to speak for, and Goodwin says that they “have a point.” However it is a rather selective point, if we consider the strange Leaver coalition which actually spatched together genuine victims of austerity and internationalisation with much more affluent leavers in the southern counties nostalgic for a Greater Britain. This is then accompanied by an equally selective definition of the defining opposition:

“As those with advanced qualifications have acquired more representation and power, governments have over time become more empathetic toward their desires and shaped more around ‘cosmopolitan standards’.”

Soon we are presented with the European elites, including those in the UK, backing everyone but their own working class and non-graduates, due to their ‘cosmopolitan standards’. This makes a certain sense, given that:

“ while 57% of elites across Europe felt that immigration had been good for their respective country only 25% of voters felt the same way. Political, business and media elites were far more likely to feel they had benefited from being in the EU, to back further integration and support refugees and the role of Islam in Europe.”

Education plays a crucial role in this division. But the role that it plays has nothing to do with the way that a technocratic political class hand in hand with their media might manipulate the fears of the less educated to consolidate their power, leaving only the better educated relatively unscathed. Instead, Goodwin quotes Boven and Wille approvingly, whose study of ‘diploma democracy’ in the Netherlands (2011), was broadened to cover Europe in 2017. Their concern is that education is exclusionary at the level of political debate:

“In a diploma democracy the well-educated voice resonates much more strongly at the ballot box; in deliberative sessions and expert meetings; in parliaments and cabinets”.

and their conclusion that the educated can moreover, be narrowly self-interested:

“Yet whereas Plato’s idealised ruling class was an ascetic brotherhood working for the common good in small city states, today’s rulers are increasingly cosmopolitan, insular and at times self-serving.”

There are many reasons why political representation is in crisis today, and an inability to serve the common good must be a dominant factor. But can a cosmopolitan tendency really bear the explanatory weight that it is given here? It is a convenient descriptive, to be sure, since a sense of relative ease with ‘the other’ is perhaps the sole factor seeming to unite the advantage of EU membership with further European integration, welcoming refugees and being happy to live side by side with people of the Muslim faith. Moreover, in itself, the consequent willingness to accept change provides a ready if not obviously irresponsible point of contrast to the “socially conservative views” that Eatwell informs us are “common” among national populist supporters and “deeply held”.

However, for researchers so alert to homogenising biases and stereotypes, this choice of unifying trait seems hasty, if only and in particular because everything we might assume about the self-serving nature of political élites today suggests a marked inability to empathise with another ‘other’ – namely the very people whom Goodwin and Eatwell have committed themselves to understanding, caring about and empowering. Why draw the ‘cosmopolitan’ line at them?

Yet this is where Goodwin’s argument ends, in a quotation carefully chosen to urge an opponent that by now is a curious amalgam of European élites and ‘the liberal left’, to “reflect on” the “pluralist heaven” of the former and their distance from the real people:

“The academic E.E. Schattschneider once observed that a key risk that faces democracies is that they become dominated by the privileged and ignore the less well off. “The flaw in the pluralist heaven is that the heavenly chorus sings with a strong upper-class accent”, he wrote. Today, the heavenly chorus might sing with a middle-class accent, but its members are now holding degree certificates.”

Goodwin’s preoccupation with education and representation gives this choice of antagonists a particular twist, but the framing underlying this strand of argument is familiar enough. It is the opposition between rooted Somewhere people and rootless Anywhere people packaged by David Goodhart, and chosen as Book of the Year for 2017 by The Guardian and the Economist, just in time to be coopted into Theresa May’s campaign to become prime minister as her own personal brand of patriotism: “If you believe you are a citizen of the world, you are a citizen of nowhere.”

The Road to Somewhere, as Jon Bloomfield points out in his highly critical openDemocracy review, relies on a similar “mixture of selective facts and figures” to construct Goodhart’s particular version of a divided society, in which the working class is pitted against an “Anywheres” category that lumps together “everyone from those who go on to do low grade office and administrative work through to hedge fund managers and senior executives” via three years at university which are “apparently sufficiently formative to mould all these diverse people into one homogenous bloc”.

Here too, an “unbridgeable gulf between the working and professional classes” takes centre stage, moving neoliberal globalisation, financial crisis, the concerted austerity drive and forty years of changing attitudes conveniently to one side, while it invokes a timeless “bedrock” and yes, the unitary National Us.

Here too Jon Bloomfield finds the far right being treated with “kid gloves” in the process. Goodwin and Eatwell are eager to abjure words such as ‘racist’ or ‘fascist’ to describe UKIP members, the far right and populism in general, though they may not have anticipated UKIP’s most recent ‘metamorphosis into an outright, unapologetic far-right party’ at the advice of the Bannonite ‘Tommy Robinson’, now explicitly aiming to head up an aggrieved majoritarian movement in response to what he calls the ‘Great Brexit Betrayal’. Goodhart, before them, had designated UKIP, Trump and Le Pen alike “decent populists”, arguing that “UKIP and the Front National have been dragged sharply to the left in recent years” and that Trump is no “white supremacist”.

But the selective concern with some dangers and not with others is not the only problem with this approach. When it comes to democratic debate, foregrounding “pluralist heaven” as a no-go-area can only lead to a series of missed opportunities.

The immigration debate

Take Roger Eatwell’s call for a “bottom-up” conversation “about immigration and how best to live together.”

In his attempt to persuade us that “the vast majority of British people are ‘balancers’ who recognise the rights of genuine asylum seekers and need for migration”, Eatwell is surely right to ask his readers not to assume that racism is at play among the “many voters” for whom immigration is indeed “a major concern” and to seek to understand what is. One example we are asked to give a sympathetic hearing to is that national populist supporters think immigrants “should be expected to assimilate into the dominant culture, which many people still strongly identify with (though their conceptions of Britishness often differ).” The closing qualification here is a mere aside, the postscript of a scrupulous researcher. But isn’t Eatwell neglecting a more interesting line of inquiry? Looked at another way, conceptions of Britishness in the plural pose challenging questions about how coherent the ‘dominant culture’ is in our ‘hyper-diverse’ modern societies; questions about who is to decide which Britishness should dominate; and about who decides, if at all, who should assimilate to what?

Furthermore, if we admit that the plurality here is a reality and not a cosmopolitan indulgence, couldn’t this recognition precisely take us in the direction of a mutually vulnerable, inclusive debate, open to ‘the other’ – in which even migrants or Europeans might have something to contribute to our changing perceptions of who British people are?

Eatwell, in fact, agrees. His article concludes with an “urgent” call for a serious “bottom-up” conversation about “a new and more inclusive conception of national identity” that can “combine old aspects of British identity with the new realities of migration and multicultural communities”. But much more effort goes into urging educated readers to understand assumptions about assimilation, than goes into exploring what it would take in a democracy to have such a serious conversation that could change people’s minds. Which brings us back to the whole question of  ‘contact’.

This missed opportunity occurs when Eatwell is mapping concerns over immigration. He explains that “Concerns are often greatest in areas where people have recently arrived, or where there are fears about such an influx”, or where, as in a South Wales former mining village, “The only foreigners were inside the Daily Mail”.  He moves on to the apparent anomaly that “the Brexit vote was often lowest in parts of Britain, like London which have relatively large ethnic minorities”, and provides one possible explanation, nodding to “social-psychological ‘contact theory” which “holds that over time people from different ethnic groups accommodate to each other through direct interaction.”

But again, wouldn’t we do well to linger? Isn’t the contrast at work here the same one that underpins the choice between two ways of building community with which I began my argument: on the one hand the horizontal empowerment of direct citizen involvement as a contact sport, working across borders and boundaries over time; and on the other, the rapid balloonings of the imagined monocultural National Us, under sudden threat from some imagined but never quite encountered enemy? If it is true that ‘contact’ makes such a difference, and bearing in mind for example, how every partial and selective version of the Brexit debate proliferates its own lethal enemy images, then mustn’t this be one priority for the proactively implemented “suite of packages” that Goodwin calls for, adding to his emphasis on what the populists get right, an accompanying emphasis on the need to be “exposed to different perspectives” that is pretty well indistinguishable from “cosmopolitan standards.”

Goodwin and Eatwell are always worth reading, because their work contains so many of the relevant facts. Take for example, Goodwin’s scrupulous qualification to his proposal for “making greater use of local referendums”, that “Such initiatives would not necessarily halt populism, as countries like Switzerland with its long tradition of direct democracy show.” So what advance on local referenda is conducive to the “meaningful discussion among citizens about political reform” that Goodwin seeks, that might respond to the “lack of voice” and sense of “distant elites that united many Leave voters”?

Turn your back on pluralist encounter, or fail to question “assimilation” and are you really helping anybody? Isn’t it at least worth wondering what would happen if we dropped the Somewhere: Anywhere binary, and thought instead about a deeply polarised but hugely diverse society, divided between people like the leavers and remainers brought together in the Citizens Assembly on Brexit in Manchester last September, who were relieved to hear each other out, able to change their minds, and honoured to have the opportunity to think about the interests of the country as a whole; and those who are determined neither to persuade or to be persuaded, for whom reliance on force of number, a strong man, crashing out of the EU, or failing these, the lurking possibility of violence, seem the only hope?

If that is truer to the reality in which we live, as I believe, then a framing of debate that pits those who are privileged by dint of their sheer capacity for debate against those who are not, perversely leaves national populist supporters with little to fall back on but stubborn silence and a gathering sense of betrayal. Eatwell asks us not to “ignore the views of national populist voters who have relatively low levels of education, and are not greatly interested in politics” – fair enough as far as it goes. But in this reductive straitjacket of a stand-off, don’t we begin to ask ourselves what is cause and what is effect? Framing the immigration debate in a way that assumes assimilation is the name of the game can only exacerbate the unpreparedness and fears of people panicking at the prospect of further, disempowering change. “Brexit means Brexit” is such a counterproductive dictum of majority reassurance precisely because it promises that you won’t have to change your mind. “Stopping Brexit”, reversing it or getting it over and done with plays exactly to the same humiliations and sense of powerlessness. So why should people be interested in politics, or democracy, when it only offers further loss of control over their lives?

Cas Mudde writes this week in openDemocracy that, “Today, the far right has established itself at the center of European politics, while scholarship is predominantly “neutral”, although most scholars remain hostile to the far right itself (but increasingly sympathetic to its voters).” Unfortunately, it seems true that these scholars also prefer to dwell on our need to understand the “strong identification” of such voters with a non-existent or imaginary monocultural National Us, at a time when Tommy Robinson is busy inflating that balloon, by claiming that his far right will lead “the 52% who opted for leave in the referendum”.

Aren’t we doing Robinson’s work for him, when we encourage people to ignore the diversity in their own ranks; when we reassure people that they don’t have to change their minds or take minority viewpoints into account; and when we create an enemy image out of the ‘other’?

          Der Guardian behauptet, Paul Manafort habe Julian Assange ...      Cache   Translate Page      
Der Guardian behauptet, Paul Manafort habe Julian Assange in der Botschaft besucht — mehrfach. Der Artikel ist eine eindrucksvolle Übung in kognitiver Dissonanz. Der schreibt seine Behauptungen, begründen sie mit Dingen, die er uns nicht zeigen kann, darf oder will, schreibt dann, dass alle Betroffenen brutalstmöglich dementieren, und macht dann einfach weiter, als sei das egal. Gleich am Anfang ist so eine Passage:
Sources have said Manafort went to see Assange in 2013, 2015 and in spring 2016 – during the period when he was made a key figure in Trump’s push for the White House.
Die Behauptung.
In a statement, Manafort denied meeting Assange. He said: “I have never met Julian Assange or anyone connected to him. I have never been contacted by anyone connected to WikiLeaks, either directly or indirectly. I have never reached out to Assange or WikiLeaks on any matter.”
Das allumfassende Dementi.
It is unclear why Manafort would have wanted to see Assange and what was discussed. But the last apparent meeting is likely to come under scrutiny and could interest Robert Mueller, the special prosecutor who is investigating alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.
Und dann einfach weiter im Programm. Und zwar nicht mit Fakten sondern mit irgendwelchen haltlosen Spekulationen.

Gut, das ist Luke Harding, der seit Jahren Krieg gegen Wikileaks und evidenzbasierten Journalismus führt. Dementsprechend vernichtend ist der Kommentar von Glenn Greenwald. Der Guardian sollte vielleicht doch lieber bei Modeberichterstattung, Feminismus, Feminismus, Rassismus!!1!-Kolumnen und der Nazis-überall und Feminismus / WTF-Verschwörungstheorien bleiben. Ich finde ja, der Guardian braucht mehr Feminismus. Frauen sind da immer noch völlig unterrepräsentiert. Die kriegen die Kolumnen, aber seriösen Journalismus machen immer noch Männer wie Luke Harding. So geht das nicht weiter! Wann tut endlich mal jemand was!!

          Switzerland labels homophobia a criminal offence      Cache   Translate Page      
The Swiss parliament has extended the scope of anti-racism laws to include discrimination based on sexual orientation. Intersexual (people born with male and female chromosones and/or sexual organs) and transgender people, on the other hand, will not enjoy the same level of protection. Both houses of parliament have now approved a motion to criminalise homophobia. Switzerland now joins the likes of France, Austria, the Netherlands and Denmark in taking criminal action against such discrimination. Homophobia can now be combated in the same way as racism. For example, a person who publicly declares that "all homos should be imprisoned in camps" can be prosecuted. This has not been the case so far. Homophobic bodily injuries can now also be properly recorded. This makes it possible to meet the demands of LGBTIQ organisations of keeping statistics on homophobia. Anyone who violates the law, either with racist or homophobic acts, can be sentenced to up to three years in prison. The ...
