International Holocaust Remembrance Day

Resolution 60/7 establishing 27 January as International Holocaust Remembrance Day urges every member nation of the U.N. to honor the memory of Holocaust victims, and encourages the development of educational programs about Holocaust history to help prevent future acts of genocide.
from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Genocidal state, medical experiments ⇒ Holocaust victims were people who were targeted by the government of Nazi Germany for various discriminatory practices due to their ethnicity, religion, political beliefs, or sexual orientation.

I'm gay and I can imagine the hard times gays had in Nazi Germany, especially the ones that talked openly about their sexual orientation. There is still pressure towards minorities here in Croatia.

I wish to express my deepest condolence to all the Holocaust victims.

Impressive Quotes for Today and More

It is strange that only extraordinary men make the discoveries, which later appear so easy and simple.
Georg C. Lichtenberg

Freedom of speech is for a person with a name and surname, I mean, how else to quote? -But there is a "Pen name" notion that complicates a "straightforward" situation. That's how I started writing in 2011, with a pseudonym adopted by an author (me - Luka Jagor).

Other thoughts on freedom of speech:

If we want to limit speech because it causes harm, we will have to ban a lot of political speech.
George Kateb
Freedom of speech is a principal pillar of a free government; when this support is taken away, the constitution of a free society is dissolved, and tyranny is erected on its ruins.
Benjamin Franklin, one of the Founding Fathers of the United States

World Economic Overview in 2019 From My Perspective

The globalization process is very important, but it should not lead us to direct democracy or swarm intelligence. Such swarm intelligence is devastating to human rights and in fact, is anti-intelligence.

Information is traveling at the speed of the light (at least we know how our ancestors talked to Apollo spacecraft - much faster than a speed of sound, which seems important now to demystify).

Mexico wall dispute is slowing down the economy in the USA. I hope China's growth will be more sustainable, especially considering ecology factors. Great Britain is avoiding real structural reforms of accumulated bureaucracy. I believe the next big investors' interest will obtain African countriesEURussia, and India are rising steadily.

My View of China's Landing on Unexplored Moon’s Surface

First of all, I would like to congratulate the Chinese on this great success. Moon lander probe will send back important information to all of mankind. The exquisite visit of "Yutu-2" to the moon is yet another highlight of making humans a multi-planetary species. I hope such an act will produce a benevolent effect regarding territorial pretensions on the ground. There is so much space in the Universe, we just have to figure out a way to use it.

Opinion: The best of #SpaceChina & more
