careful....there might be some other "exits" on your own backyard.

Delayed-action bomb....


..what once was called education, is now considered merchandise

"Higher education" is the new milk cow for the financial world. Students with a higher education that does not lead to any job, have to carry the burden of debt for the rest of their lives. How good is the equation for the individual....and for society ?

"Posthumously pardoned"....

Oscar Wilde needs no "pardon"

Pardoned for what ? Accepting a pardon is an admission of guilt.
How about an unconditional apology and compensation for those still living ? State arrogance and hypocrisy at its best.

"...I wanted to eat of the fruit of all the trees in the garden of the world... And so, indeed, I went out, and so I lived. My only mistake was that I confined myself so exclusively to the trees of what seemed to me the sun-lit side of the garden, and shunned the other side for its shadow and its gloom."

Divorcing from a bad marriage....


..and dating the devil. Good luck !

The wall....


Tearing down the Berlin Wall was in the 80`s a political top priority for the US foreign policy. That was of course in the name of "freedom". Building (completing) the wall on the Mexican border thirty years later....is in the name of what ?

Are you a member...?


..it's the obligatory question whether you buy potatoes, painkillers, or a computer. Everywhere you are supposed to be a "member"....of what ??

Silence please....


The intellectuals are hiding in the shade of privileges. If they expressed their opinion, the system would force them to find a job.

Signor Balocco "Furbo"....


This must be the result of the "furbezza italiana" !? Where is the proportion between the content, and the package ? Of course....the package is what you see before paying for the product - but on the other hand, you only buy it once.

Cheating Wolkswagen....



"In the US, VW has reached a $15 billion (£11.3bn) deal with US owners to buy back affected vehicles and compensate owners. There are no similar plans for UK owners, although VW is still facing pressure from the EU Commission to put something in place." ....here

The US got a quick compensation deal....and the europeans ?

Hypocrites....


A few days before the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, a show dedicated to women on the Moroccan public channel 2M aired the November 23th a segment showing Moroccan women how to cover bruises from domestic violence.

And a petition against this stone age behaviour:
