I’m not surprised by Ikoro Moyano’s tweet: “Facebook sends police a private message from a teenager with her mother so they can prosecute both of them for abortion.” This happened in Nebraska, and we were already warned that it could happen. I’m also not surprised that Meta (the company that has Facebook, but also Instagram and WhatsApp) cooperates with the authorities. It amazes me that we know this in such a concrete and damaging way to social networks: who would now trust these communication tools in states where abortion is illegal and under scrutiny? And in the rest of the world?
Women face a regression in their rights in which we all participate and, therefore, we are all responsible. We see it in America, we see it in Spain, where parties like Vox question the basic consensus on equality, and we certainly see it in countries like Afghanistan thanks to photographers and journalists like Luis de Vega, who Went to Kabul. To report on how that country has changed in this first year of Taliban rule. This has changed for the worse, as we expected, and with women the people who are being affected the most by the radical government, though not the only ones.
bullshit still exists
I stare in wonder at the existence of Trumpism fed by the next generation (Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, is about to publish his memoirs as a member of the White House in exchange for a seven-issue investigation, according to some chronicles) . But so did those who continue to see the former president as the victim of a colossal conspiracy. I am all the more amazed that a significant portion of the Republican Party continues to bet on Trump, who has never denied his ties or sympathies with the extreme right. And I wonder if one of his assets can be registered in his favor. But it is so.
Spain, in a title
“The first day of the savings plan in Spain is fixed with the increase in electricity consumption”, I read in L’Independent, while I think more than a day in changing trends, uses, customs, faults and selfishness it takes time. It is no longer a matter of decree or Pedro Sánchez signing it: energy saving is an issue we must get involved in. Starting with the highest spenders, who are not ordinary citizens, but those who travel by private jets or who plan to travel to space for pleasure. But we also have to make radical changes in our way of living or we will not be able to get out of it.
Do we want this? we need this?
I know that large amounts of energy and raw materials are needed by companies that employ thousands of people and pay taxes that allow us to maintain our way of life, but we need We have to reduce the amount of resources, we have to avoid investing. Ideas on the table such as the “Trans-Saharan Gas Pipeline” (El Confidential) which will cross 4,000 km. of the desert from the south of Nigeria, where it originated, and would require a large armed protection for its construction (with a budget of 13,000 million) and maintenance.
