Happy World Press Freedom Day

Often they say 70% of all information on the internet is disinformation. I can't guarantee that all information provided on my blog is logically true, I write this blog passionately from the bottom of my heart.

Please always be skeptical regarding unverified sources and bear in mind that the closest people surrounding you should be your strongest influencers.

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 Charity Concert Initiative - Please Help the Poor and the Sick, Mostly Migrants I Guess

My Special Message Regarding the Labor Day

I hope automation will stop this terrible 'Work cult', stopping these busy/insane times and block the bystander effect. I believe people are warm and not lazy somewhere deep down, beneath their iron charade. They should find time for other people in need: those who are sick, homeless, hungry, as I have by writing this blog, not just chasing material social symbols.

I dedicate this letter specially to the somewhat neglected group - sportsmen, writing about their suffering. Sometimes they say:
All the drama you'll ever need you'll find in sports
Many sports are using the ball and most often that ball is produced by child labor, read more here: FIFA Working to Eliminate Child Labor in Soccer Industry.

In addition to that, there is a list of association footballers who died while playing, I'm expressing my condolence.

The solution for fixing sportsmen suffering from my perspective is calling off cup competitions (by setting competition drama only once per month). I'm aware that such new rules won't fix all the problems, but it's the right way to end silly games.

Please Stop 'Mutant Technologies' - Updating...

List of 'mutant technologies' from my perception: 
  1. Brain boosters (like psychedelic substances or brain to computer interface)
  2. Smart contact lens (but VR glasses are OK in my opinion) 
  3. Doping in sport
I believe society can evolve properly enjoying a long line of peace and prosperity. Happy Earth Day!

My Way of Free Trade as a Ticket for Global Prosperity

Universal resources and wealth are not well placed, as you may know, they need to pass the redistribution process. From a microcosmos point of view you can see numerous examples:

  • Food was, unfortunately, being thrown away in many markets and supermarkets, but now Europe and the USA are taking steps to increase usage efficiency
  • People jog, exercise before work then go to work, often driving their cars. I believe it would be much more efficient to leave a car altogether, and live a healthy life, regardless of its status symbol. Statistics say you use the car only 4 percent on average of your time. Believe me, walking should be the transportation of the future

Ever-changing Atlas of the World

Over 10,000 join rally calling for Moldova to be unified with Romania

More than 10,000 people took to the streets in Moldova on Sunday to call for the country's reunification with Romania. The demonstration highlighted the tensions between pro-Western and Moscow backed factions ahead of elections in November. However, a union between EU member state Romania and its neighbour to the northeast remains unlikely.

Spain Catalonia: Puigdemont's arrest in Germany sparks mass protests

Protests have broken out across Catalonia as former leader Carles Puigdemont spends the night in a German prison. Mr Puigdemont, who is wanted in Spain for sedition and rebellion, was detained by German police acting on a European arrest warrant. Thousands of his supporters have turned out in Barcelona and other nearby cities to protest his arrest.

I oppose continuous printing of atlases, maps, and so on. Please think about the environment before making life-changing steps in a group. It is difficult to replace a country, it's not the same as changing a profile from Facebook to Twitter (or to Google+ for that matter 😃 )

I often wonder: will eliminate the paper (enabling tablets, laptops) in the school skyrocket changes in geography? Think about children in the school, what geography means to them. Organize a new country only if you are absolutely certain you won't fall behind the world!

It would be nice to see some animation of changing atlas, let's say from 80'' till now.

#MyFreedomDay - March 14

Freedom for me is never ever taking it for granted
Christiane Amanpour, journalist and television host

It's nice to lift public awareness about personal freedom and especially against modern-day slavery. Please make proper actions to stop modern-day slavery wherever is happening. All forms of modern-day slavery are, unfortunately, escalating.

I believe freedom of choice, with respect to 'regular' (if it exists) human rights, is the most important component. Man must always afresh fight for freedom as Christiane Amanpour said. Freedom for me is like happiness, let's free the slaves and make some positive vibes globally. Furthermore, I must mention universal basic income (UBI) regarding this particular subject, you can read more about it here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Basic_income.

Human rights - basic, extended or regular - what do you prefer?

Native culture - updated

Endorsement of the principles of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples does not equal implementation, speakers told the UN General Assembly today at a special meeting to celebrate the Declaration's tenth anniversary and renew commitment to its tenets as a vital solution towards attaining a just and sustainable world.

Revolutionised Governmental Models of the Worlds

  •  Transition Model for Countries that Want to be Democracy
Elections are the most important things in democracy, it's nice to give people what they want.
In '99 Months Transition', a bit more than eight years, there would be nine elections.
I offer this model in good faith:

99 Months Transition
  • 3 x 4 months - governmental periods - Stage 1 of the transition
  • 3 x 9 months - governmental periods - Stage 2 of the transition
  • 3 x 20 months - governmental periods - Stage 3 of the transition

Blogger's Code of Conduct From My Perception

The Blogger's Code of Conduct is a proposal by Tim O'Reilly for bloggers to enforce civility on their blogs by being civil themselves and moderating comments on their blog.

Don't be timid, especially regarding "If you know someone who is behaving badly, tell them so." - from the Blogger's Code of Conduct! Please think twice before pressing the "Hate speech" or "Fake news" button.

I believe there are too many of those busters, those blogbusters, destructive and angry individuals that destroy anything that gets in their way. In my opinion, freedom of the press is anything except hate speech, only hate speech might be punishable by the law. End users should judge mistakes in content in a way that they don't consume bad content (if you don't like it - don't view it, switch channel).

There is too much political correctness towards political elites, rich - the establishment. Freedom of speech is found only in liberal democracies, don't let terrorists destroy it.

I'm a liberal, I believe that "Hate speech" is an explicit call for violence, it's bad.

The term "Fake news" went viral.  I do not like that syntagm, it has no meaning except as a helper to repressive regimes, to scare liberal reporters.
I will give you an example:  the Great Red Spot of Jupiter. Imagine someone wants to write about that?!
It is a storm that has existed for at least 350 years - obviously, it's nothing new - therefore it's "Fake news"?!

I'm not scared, I will continue criticizing whoever and whatever I desire, and encouraging others to continue with good work.

Literacy in the Fourth Industrial Revolution

Out of 7.5 billion people worldwide, there are more than one billion illiterate people, aged 15 and above. The Fourth Industrial Revolution is the fourth major industrial era since the initial Industrial Revolution of the 18th century. Please don't confuse classical literacy with digital literacy or computer literacy.

Numbers about digital or computer literacy would show even more untenable economic development and growth. Untenable economic growth is a bad thing because it makes social unease, creating space for conflicts or war.

Dear people, all of you with decision-making privileges, especially you in Davos, should make a stand to equalize big differences worldwide.

World Refugee Day - 20 June - Is Approaching

This not about sharing a burden. It is about sharing a global responsibility, based not only the broad idea of our common humanity but also on the very specific obligations of international law. The root problems are war and hatred, not people who flee; refugees are among the first victims of terrorism.


Every minute 20 people leave everything behind to escape war, persecution, or terror. Please help poor people. You can join the #WithRefugees petition to send a message to governments that they must work together and do their fair share for refugees.

The refugee exodus with over 66 million forcibly displaced worldwide is at its peak.

It is a pity that there is no initiative like it was "Live Aid" in 1985. "World’s richest 1% get 82% of the wealth," Oxfam Charitable organization says, "there is a new billionaire every other day". I don't believe the rich are so much more productive than the others, it's just not fair.

Please Cherish Freedom of the Press



I emphasize that most journalists are not spoiled, not governed by corporations. Journalists are also very rarely corrupt or spying.

Journalists have high moral standards and fight against evil regardless of their form. Sometimes it takes only a few good men, or just one person to make a difference.

There is an old saying:
The pen is mightier than the sword
Edward Bulwer-Lytton, English novelist, poet, playwright, and politician

Please Accept My Deepest Condolences to Families and Friends of Deceased in Catastrophes

Huge wildfires, then rain and mudslides caused many casualties in California. Cold waves in other parts of the USA also caused many casualties. I'm so sorry. I hope this crazy weather will stop. I'm not religious but it makes me wanna pray.

Wildfires in Argentina, extremely hot weather in Australia, and the biggest current catastrophe is fire from burning Iranian oil tanker. China struggles to end the fire, but there is a danger for a catastrophe like the "Deepwater Horizon oil spill" in 2010.

Please accept my deepest condolences to the families and friends of the deceased.

Cult of personality isn't charming nor charismatic

A cult of personality arises when a regime uses mass media, propaganda, or other methods such as government-organized demonstrations to create an idealized, heroic, and at times worshipful image of a leader, often through unquestioning flattery and praise.
Charming /ˈtʃɑːmɪŋ/ - adjective - very pleasant or attractive.
Charismatic /karɪzˈmatɪk/ - adjective - exercising a compelling charm which inspires devotion in others.

People are being hurt when those terms get confused. Hitler, Stalin were just a few of those who practiced the cult of personality in politics. Dear people of the world, please don't make the same mistake again. You should fire authoritative regimes and their leaders that want to be on TV often, acting as some celebrity, no matter of deceased victims.

Reality TV is awesome, you can buy a new flat TV as low as $150! - Updated

Reality TV is awesome! Reality TV Show star Caitlyn Jenner coming out front as a transgender person in "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" was very inspirational for many beautiful LGBT people. I hope they all find the love of their life as soon as possible. It's never too late to express your real suppressed feelings, thank you Caitlyn Jenner for everything.

United States Ambassador to the United Nations, Samantha Power interviews Caitlyn Jenner about LGBT rights for Human Rights Day, 10 December 2015 Here's what Ambassador Power said about it on Facebook: Today is International Human Rights Day. At the United Nations, we’re working to integrate LGBT rights into every discussion on human rights, but there is still so much more we can do so that everyone has the freedom to live as they are without fear. It was good to talk to Caitlyn Jenner recently about the important work we can do at home, at the UN, and internationally. Around the world - and here in the US - transgender people face bullying, abuse, and even fatal violence simply for who they are. The threat is all too real for too many: from 2008-2014, over 1,600 transgender people were killed worldwide.

Please don't confuse transgender people with greedy athletes whose interest in medicine is only how to get profit.

Populism of the petty bourgeoisie

In theory, everyone should have equal opportunity, but be careful. The fast rise of populism of the petty bourgeoisie is possible where education is free. You can have families where parents have an only elementary school, and children on the other hand have college. "Superiority complex" doesn't have to be used just for individual psychology, I believe the term could be used in sociology as well.

Superiority complex leading to populism would be the common denominator for talks in these families. Short-term results of those talks are positive, long-term results are devastating. Please remember that the "Doomsday Clock" is all times height, the cause is the rise of nationalism.

Some examples of populism backward thinking by subject:

  • Economy: State protectionism and interventionism
  • Geography and space exploration: We have to eat a lot of polenta to get into the universe, Flat Earth Idea
  • Migration: like in Elysium, the movie
  • Health care system: Family medicine

Please stop one of the biggest scams of the century - bottled water - Updated

Bottled Water: The 'Marketing Trick of the Century' (now offline)

After decades of strong growth, bottled water has surpassed soda as the largest beverage category in the U.S., according to a recent report by research and consulting firm Beverage Marketing Corporation. Bottled water consumption hit a high of 39.3 gallons per capita last year.

14 reasons bottled water is one of the biggest scams of the century

There's nothing quite like the feeling of pure, ice-cold hydration. Some of us get our water for free from the tap. The rest pay for it -- at the cost of roughly $100 billion a year. At that steep a price tag, you might assume buying the bottled stuff would be worth it.

Update:

WHO launches plastics health review

The World Health Organization is to launch a review into the potential risks of plastic in drinking water. It will assess the latest research into the spread and impact of so-called microplastics - particles that are small enough to be ingested. It comes after journalism organisation Orb Media found plastic particles in many major brands of bottled water.
The British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC)
The lifestyle in Croatia is a little bit different, we don't drink bottled water, but rather pipeline water. I'm afraid that the problem of plastic particles in water also exists, and I kindly ask authorities to check it out.
