EU Crisis: More Europe: What it Stands For. Eurocracy.
EU (Commission) is now democratically unsustainable. Financial
austerity imposed on sinner states Greece, Portugal, Ireland and Spain has led to genuine hardship, social
unrest and a rethink about the pursuit of the European federalist
demands extra money from cash strapped taxpayers to fund "More Europe" provoking an open think process about what exactly is the
meaning of "More Europe." Many see "More Europe" as additional funding to
the already lavish gravy train lifestyle enjoyed by a greedy elitist group
who have little or no allegiance to Europe's citizens. People who sit
around Brussels dreaming up ways to enhance their Federalist goals
which most in Europe now regard as a dead ambition.
in Berlin, UK foreign secretary warned, "People feel that in too
many ways the EU is something that is done to them, not something
over which they have a say. People feel the EU is a
one-way process, a great machine that sucks up decision-making from
national parliaments to the European level until everything is
decided by the EU."
told there would be opposition to increasing their budgets “More
employees took to protesting. They concluded "We demand that
member states have the courage to tell their citizens that a
reduction in the European budget would have, for all them, a higher
cost, the cost of no Europe, or the cost of less Europe."
¶ No one here can love or understand me, oh what hard luck stories they all hand me.
Make my bed and light the light I'll be home late tonight E.U. bye bye. ¶

does that mean exactly. Less Brussels bureaucracy, less meddling in
people's lives, less obnoxious sneering at the notion of nations
rights to self determination. Or less super stars manning the
watchtower against the pending doom facing Europe if citizens refuse
Brussels demands for "More Europe."
United Kingdom is a new champion in curtailing the excess of the
Babylonian Tribe of Dreams. It has told More
Europe "British voters are gloomy about the future of the
EU. It is clearer and clearer that the people of this country want out of the European Union. That public disillusionment with the
EU in Britain is the deepest it has ever been. And, that it may make
the whole EU institution democratically unsustainable in the UK."
is not now regarded as being about safeguarding Europeans. It
has become the will of a Brussels colossus to feed
its growing appetite for power and glory to spend citizens money and to be well rewarded in doing so. It is a question over whether those whom
they instruct to embrace austerity are becoming serfs and wage slaves
to unpopular Eurocracy and banking plutocracy. Who plays who in
this game. Maybe it was just a bad week to ask the bosses for a wage rise.

Trying to eradicate tribalism from the world would be a futile endeavour. But Salome hopes that his readers learn to recognize the common traits they share with people all over the world, and thereby develop tolerance and compassion for other tribes. The biggest and broadest tribe is one to which we all belong, and that’s the human race. Click on image to go to the review page.
Post-post photojournalism is now Photomoderne.
Post photojournalism entered the media world around 2003 with the arrival of citizens journalism. There came the use of free Internet images with decline in newspaper readership and revenue. Though it was depleting as a press profession photojournalists refused to abandon it as an outdated medium.
In post-post photojournalism (since 2008) where acceptance of all things new, creation of new roles, markets and the return of the credible source to verify Citizen's news, we see photojournalism branching in many directions. Today it evolves, develops, and creates a powerful destiny to fulfill.

This is a little spot on Derry's Walls where girls from a nearby school meet as a private location to discuss things and do things and plan things. It is a long road ahead for these unsuspecting hopefuls.
A picture from Berlin. A Martin Luther King poster I think translates as "Expressing the truth needs courage." Although this was taken in 2006 I feel it can be put to use to celebrate the King anniversay.
