WHO WILL ARREST UNITED AIRLINES?

Quis custodiet ipsos custodes? (Who will guard the guards?) When an individual violates the "social distancing" rules, he/she can be arrested and prosecute it. And when a major airline does it, who will arrest them? Take a look at what happened on a May 9 flight from Newark, NJ to San Francisco. https://twitter.com/ethanjweiss/status/1259165939037331456… Quis custodiet …

LIFE AFTER CORONA: WHAT CAN WE EXPECT?

CORONA TO PUT FINAL NAIL IN INDUSTRIAL ERA’S COFFIN WHAT CAN WE LEARN FROM HISTORY? As we speak, the coronavirus has infected less than 3.5 million people globally and killed 246,000. The deadliest pandemic in history – the Spanish Flu of 1918 – killed over 50 million people – more than the World War I (17 million victims). While it is prudent to take precautions – such as practice social distancing, wear masks and gloves – we must not surrender ourselves to fear and panic. Because the mass media and the “liberal” (pink-socialist) politicians want to use this crisis to achieve something they never could in a free society – autocracy.

Some people are blaming China for the coronavirus crisis, claiming they are using it because they want to "rule the world." Certain American politicians, Donald Trump among them, are helping incite hatred against the Chinese calling by calling COVID-19 the "China Virus." Instead, there is much to be admired about how bravely and wisely the Chinese confronted this invisible enemy which attacked them first. And now, while the rest of the world is gripped in fear, the Chinese are sending planeloads of medical materiel and lending their own expertise to countries like Italy, France, Belgium, USA and others.

AN AMERICAN IN SERBIA: WHAT LIVING IN BELGRADE IS LIKE AFTER 50 YEARS

Buying a car in Serbia: NIGHTMARE ON FOUR WHEELS About one year ago, I arrived in Serbia. The idea was to see what living in my native city for about six months would be like after spending nearly half a century in America. Well, best laid plans of mice and men... Three months after my arrival, I married my landlady. A temporary living arrangement became a permanent wedlock. I grew a beard. I still wear it. I lost some weight. Healthier food and lifestyle, I suppose. Those were some of the good things. The rest... well, it was a culture shock. So much rudeness. So much intolerance. So much senseless bureaucracy. So much paper. So many loose cats and dogs. After seven months in Belgrade, my wife and I went back to Arizona. We spent four months at our Scottsdale home. This time, it was my wife's turn to experience a reverse culture shock - that of kindness with which everyone treated her. And how neat and clean everything was. Now we are back in Belgrade for the summer. And the culture shock continues for me.
