( Don’t watch if you’re sensitive to violent images)

Joanne Herring is a Texan billionaire who, close to Pakistan's controversial President Muhammad Zia-ul-Haq, served as Pakistan's honorary consul in Texas. As seen in Charlie Wilson's War, where she is played by Julia Roberts, Herring - whose anti-Communism was fueled by a strange Protestant zeal - had, not even so much behind the scenes, a prominent role in Operation Cyclone, namely the CIA training and armament program of the Afghan Mujahideen during the Soviet invasion of the country (1979-1989).

Herring, who is portrayed as an exuberant libertine overflowing with contacts (like her childhood friend James Bakler III, later US Secretary of State), rounded up the political force needed in Washington to get the CIA to invest billions (with Saudis, Egyptians and even Israelis) in support of the then-called Afghan "freedom fighters", of which the Taliban are a tribal ethnic-religious variant.

The Texan was an inevitable queen of events in Houston, and became famous for her husband's lavish and decadent birthday party in 1959: a large "Roman orgy" themed party that included period costumes and a fake auction. of slaves. The festoon, of dubious aesthetic-political sensitivity even for the 1950s, ended up in the then ubiquitous Life magazine. After all, talking about slavery in America, at least since after the Civil War, is really difficult ... Joking even more.

Well, this is not a joke.

Afghanistan, where more than forty years ago Herring and the US began pumping the tribal-takfiro Islam we are now seeing rising, now sees the return of slavery as a fact.

Not as a joke for a billionaire party: as the reality that Afghan women will experience for centuries to come, if everyone does as Biden did: that is, nothing.
Afghanistan is one of the most corrupt countries in the world: there will no longer be any guarantee on the control of any funds allocated by international agencies in favor of women victims of violence. The Karzai government, wanted and actively supported by the US-NATO military occupation, certainly does not stand out for its respect for human rights: in March 2009, the Karzai government signed a law intended to affect above all women of the Shiite community: according to this law , women cannot refuse to have sex with their husbands and cannot go to work, the doctor or school without his permission. In March 2007, the Karzai government had ensured amnesty for all crimes against humanity committed in Afghanistan in the past twenty years. In January 2007, journalist Parwez Kambashkh was sentenced to death by a court in Balkh after being accused of blasphemy because of his views on equal rights for women. Although Parwez was pardoned as a result of international pressure, dozens of other journalists are in the same conditions. In July 2006, the Karzai government reintroduced the "Ministry for Vice and Virtue", sadly known already under the Taleban regime. Afghan organizations fighting for human rights also denounce the government’s continued pressure to legalize the "informal" (tribal) justice system within which the stoning of women is foreseen.
It's Italy? Between 2001 and 2011, the Italian government invested hundreds of millions of euros in the reconstruction project of the Afghan justice. We ask the Italian government and the political forces that have supported and still support the military intervention in Afghanistan to explain how the funds for the reconstruction of the Afghan judicial system have been invested, as laws have been passed in recent years that heavily penalize, rather than favoring, the human rights and rights of Afghan women.


Warlords do not make war but divide human beings into good and bad. A medical excuse is more than enough to discourage any living thing from its fate. In the meantime, too many hands cross each other in the important rooms to decide on insane actions. Poor citizens bugged as defective video games, which will be classified as infected or sick. There is no choice in the gastronomic oligarchy of the power giants and each menu belongs only to these gentlemen. We live among the daisies until they burn our mental petals to grant us some restless freedom. Meanwhile, large chains advance for those who raise their heads and say no. Sparse guerrillas have raised their voices but the flock follows only its usual shepherd bleating and drooling as always.
The economic recession due to the pandemic and the health crisis have certainly had a negative impact on family poverty, outlining a risk factor for boys, girls and adolescents. The forced closure of schools and the consequent effect of social isolation due to the spread of Covid-19 – especially in the first phase – have greatly increased the risk for under 18s of becoming victims of trafficking and sexual or labor exploitation. Going to school is in fact a fundamental protective factor, which protects from these forms of exploitation. According to the latest data available from the UNODC (United Nation Office in Drugs and Crime) Global Report on Trafficking in Persons 2020, for every 10 victims of trafficking – identified globally – 5 are women and 2 are girls. Overall, 50% of identified victims are trafficked for sexual exploitation, 38% subject to forced labor (about 25 million people), while 6% have been subjected to forced criminal activities and over 1% to begging. In a smaller percentage – but still considerable if compared to the total number of registered victims – it is the object of trafficking for forced marriages (about 16 million), organ harvesting and other purposes. It is estimated that 1 in 5 women in the world were forced to marry as a child. Regarding domestic slavery, although there are no precise data given the more hidden nature of the phenomenon, we can say with certainty that the phenomenon mainly involves women and girls under the age of 16.
One of the most widespread arguments in favor of mass anti-Covid vaccination is that it is the only way out of this pandemic and lockdown situation. Whether resignation or conviction matters little, the fact is that there is a general belief that once the vast majority of the population has been vaccinated, this long chapter of suffering can be closed. And the widespread adverse reactions – high fever, fatigue, general malaise for a few days – become an acceptable price to pay for regaining normalcy. However, there is a double miscalculation in all of this. First of all, the elites that govern us do not expect a return to pre-Covid conditions of life, we have been explicitly told in all sorts of ways. Even Prime Minister Mario Draghi, in the government’s programmatic speech, delivered to the Senate on 17 February, said very clearly – referring to the Word of Science – that “getting out of the pandemic will not be like turning the light back on”. But we will still have a chance to talk about this. Here, however, we would like to focus on the second wrong calculation, that of vaccines. In fact, what we are facing is not the hypothesis of a one-off vaccine that eradicates a disease, but the introduction to a vaccination logic that tends to be endless. This is not about being no-vax – we are not at all – but it is a pure matter of logic and common sense. The vaccines that are being inoculated have in fact limited coverage. How much? Nobody knows. The Istituto Superiore di Sanità (ISS) states that “the observations made in the tests so far have shown that the protection lasts a few months, while it will be necessary to wait longer observation periods to understand if a vaccination will be sufficient for several years or will need to be repeated”. But the possibility of a multi-year coverage of the vaccine, aired by the ISS, is not reflected in the statements of the pharmaceutical companies concerned. Both Pfizer and Moderna, regarding the “duration of protection” affirm: «The duration of protection offered by the vaccine is not known; clinical trials aimed at establishing it are still underway ». As for Astrazeneca, on the other hand, nothing is said.
Therefore, it is not known. And it is for this reason – explains the Center for Control Disease of the United States – that those who have made the vaccine must still continue to wear the mask and maintain the so-called social distancing. In any case, no one bets on coverage lasting more than 9-12 months. This means that unless the coronavirus decides to spontaneously remove the ailment, the most likely prospect is an annual vaccination. Moreover, even assuming that – according to the latest commitments made by the government – herd immunity is achieved for September thanks to the vaccination campaign, at that point it will already be time to start over, given that in the meantime nine months have already passed. . Furthermore, for the many variants of the virus that are around and that are scary (even if the greater danger has not been verified), it is all to be shown that the vaccines already in distribution are equally effective: everything is to be seen, but also here the scenario probable is that of a continuous run-up to variants and relative systematic administration of vaccines. Even the probable vaccination passport, already introduced by China and which could soon become a reality in the European Union (the proposal will be presented on March 17), only makes sense as a function of continuous vaccination; otherwise in September-October, for the first who have been vaccinated, the passport will already be out of date.
Covid fear is irrational. In Italy there are about 35 thousand deaths, 0.049% of the Italian population. The risk of dying from Covid is minimal and concerns very old people and very few young people who are already sick. The government tried to contain the epidemic and then acted consistently. I would have done something different, but everyone should have agreed: the epidemic in fact arises when there is an overpopulation. We are not many on earth (seven billion) but, with the continuous coming and going of people, we are actually many more. The epidemic has the task of thinning the population. It is hard to say, he is Nietzschean, but the pandemic eliminates the least suitable and most vulnerable subjects.


How does the system work? The system works thanks to you, in such a refined way that you feed it 24 hours a day and are totally unaware of it. You are part of it through two apparently different paths. The first is the way of submission and obedience. You are a slave identified with the system whose regime you share, nurture and defend. You do not object because you do not even suspect that you are completely asleep. The second is the way of rebellion and the sense of injustice. You are a slave who does not share the regime, but you feed it with your detachment; you are convinced that you are not part of it, in reality you identify with anger, frustration, anxiety and pain, things that the system is greedy for. The more pissed you off, the more you expand it, the more it expands, the more pissed you off. Even if in everyday life they seem two different roads, they are the same road. Above all, what your mind intends to do has already been predicted and calculated by the system, indeed you have it in your brain because the system has caused you to behave in a certain way, so every time you think you are fighting something external to you, you are only reinforcing the illusion. No one has ever won a social war, the system has only allowed it to move to a later stage. I told you, then you see. The only way out is to disidentify
