first_imgMultiple copies of a four-armed peptide wrap around lipids to create particles that mimic the behavior of HDL, the “good” cholesterol. A new drug candidate designed to mimic the body’s “good” cholesterol shows a striking ability in mice to lower cholesterol levels in the blood and dissolve artery-clogging plaques. What’s more, the compound works when given orally, rather than as an injection. If the results hold true in humans—a big if, given past failures at transferring promising treatments from mice—it could provide a new way to combat atherosclerosis, the biggest killer in developed countries.Although doctors already have effective cholesterol-lowering agents, such as statins, at their disposal, there’s room for improvement. Statins have significant side effects in some people and don’t always reduce cholesterol enough in others. “There is still plenty of heart disease out there even among people who take statins,” says Godfrey Getz, an experimental pathologist at the University of Chicago in Illinois.For that reason, researchers around the globe are searching for novel drugs that affect cholesterol levels in one of two ways. The first has been to reduce levels of low-density lipoprotein (LDL), commonly known as bad cholesterol, which has been associated with higher heart disease risk. This is the goal of statins, which block an enzyme involved in cholesterol production. The second strategy is to increase levels of good cholesterol, or high-density lipoprotein (HDL), which seems to boost heart health in people who have a lot of it. But producing HDL-raising drugs that prevent heart disease has proven difficult. In the body, a large protein called apolipoprotein A-I (apoA-I) wraps around fatty lipid molecules to create HDL particles that sop up LDL and ferry it to the liver where it is eliminated. So for several decades researchers have been designing and testing small protein fragments called peptides to see if they could mimic the behavior of apoA-I. One such peptide, known as 4F, did not reduce serum cholesterol levels, but it did shrink arterial plaques in mice, rabbits, and monkeys. And in an early clinical trial by researchers at Bruin Pharma Inc. in Beverly Hills, California, that was designed only to measure its safety in people, 4F didn’t appear to show any beneficial effect.  Sign up for our daily newsletterGet more great content like this delivered right to you!Country *AfghanistanAland IslandsAlbaniaAlgeriaAndorraAngolaAnguillaAntarcticaAntigua and BarbudaArgentinaArmeniaArubaAustraliaAustriaAzerbaijanBahamasBahrainBangladeshBarbadosBelarusBelgiumBelizeBeninBermudaBhutanBolivia, Plurinational State ofBonaire, Sint Eustatius and SabaBosnia and HerzegovinaBotswanaBouvet IslandBrazilBritish Indian Ocean TerritoryBrunei DarussalamBulgariaBurkina FasoBurundiCambodiaCameroonCanadaCape VerdeCayman IslandsCentral African RepublicChadChileChinaChristmas IslandCocos (Keeling) IslandsColombiaComorosCongoCongo, The Democratic Republic of theCook IslandsCosta RicaCote D’IvoireCroatiaCubaCuraçaoCyprusCzech RepublicDenmarkDjiboutiDominicaDominican RepublicEcuadorEgyptEl SalvadorEquatorial GuineaEritreaEstoniaEthiopiaFalkland Islands (Malvinas)Faroe IslandsFijiFinlandFranceFrench GuianaFrench PolynesiaFrench Southern TerritoriesGabonGambiaGeorgiaGermanyGhanaGibraltarGreeceGreenlandGrenadaGuadeloupeGuatemalaGuernseyGuineaGuinea-BissauGuyanaHaitiHeard Island and Mcdonald IslandsHoly See (Vatican City State)HondurasHong KongHungaryIcelandIndiaIndonesiaIran, Islamic Republic ofIraqIrelandIsle of ManIsraelItalyJamaicaJapanJerseyJordanKazakhstanKenyaKiribatiKorea, Democratic People’s Republic ofKorea, Republic ofKuwaitKyrgyzstanLao People’s Democratic RepublicLatviaLebanonLesothoLiberiaLibyan Arab JamahiriyaLiechtensteinLithuaniaLuxembourgMacaoMacedonia, The Former Yugoslav Republic ofMadagascarMalawiMalaysiaMaldivesMaliMaltaMartiniqueMauritaniaMauritiusMayotteMexicoMoldova, Republic ofMonacoMongoliaMontenegroMontserratMoroccoMozambiqueMyanmarNamibiaNauruNepalNetherlandsNew CaledoniaNew ZealandNicaraguaNigerNigeriaNiueNorfolk IslandNorwayOmanPakistanPalestinianPanamaPapua New GuineaParaguayPeruPhilippinesPitcairnPolandPortugalQatarReunionRomaniaRussian FederationRWANDASaint Barthélemy Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da CunhaSaint Kitts and NevisSaint LuciaSaint Martin (French part)Saint Pierre and MiquelonSaint Vincent and the GrenadinesSamoaSan MarinoSao Tome and PrincipeSaudi ArabiaSenegalSerbiaSeychellesSierra LeoneSingaporeSint Maarten (Dutch part)SlovakiaSloveniaSolomon IslandsSomaliaSouth AfricaSouth Georgia and the South Sandwich IslandsSouth SudanSpainSri LankaSudanSurinameSvalbard and Jan MayenSwazilandSwedenSwitzerlandSyrian Arab RepublicTaiwanTajikistanTanzania, United Republic ofThailandTimor-LesteTogoTokelauTongaTrinidad and TobagoTunisiaTurkeyTurkmenistanTurks and Caicos IslandsTuvaluUgandaUkraineUnited Arab EmiratesUnited KingdomUnited StatesUruguayUzbekistanVanuatuVenezuela, Bolivarian Republic ofVietnamVirgin Islands, BritishWallis and FutunaWestern SaharaYemenZambiaZimbabweI also wish to receive emails from AAAS/Science and Science advertisers, including information on products, services and special offers which may include but are not limited to news, careers information & upcoming events.Required fields are included by an asterisk(*)M. Reza Ghadiri, a chemist at the Scripps Research Institute in San Diego, California, and his colleagues took a slightly different tack, creating a peptide that mimics another part of the apoA-I protein than 4F does. Initial in vitro studies suggested the peptide formed HDL-like particles and sopped up LDL, an encouraging result that prompted them to push it further. Ghadiri and his Scripps colleagues have now tested their compound in mice that develop artery clogging plaques when fed a Western-style high-fat diet. One group of animals received the peptide intravenously. For another group, the researchers simply added the compound to the animals’ water, a strategy they considered unlikely to work, because the gut contains high amounts of proteases designed to chop proteins apart. To their surprise, in both groups, serum cholesterol levels dropped 40% from their previous levels within 2 weeks of starting to take the drug. And by 10 weeks, the number of artery-clogging lesions had been reduced by half, the team reports in the October issue of the Journal of Lipid Research. What remains puzzling, however, is that Ghadiri and his colleagues did not detect their peptides in the blood of their test animal. Ghadiri says this suggests that the new peptide may work by removing cholesterol precursors in the gut before they enter the bloodstream.“It’s a very interesting result,” Getz says. But he cautions that the work has been tested only in animals, and many therapies—including the closely related 4F peptide—fail to transfer to humans. That said, Getz notes that some of the initial promising results with this peptide and other apoA-I mimics offer hope that researchers may soon come up with novel drugs capable of dissolving artery-clogging plaques before they can wreak their havoc.

first_imgThink of it as solar wind on steroids. Powerful gales from supermassive black holes in the center of galaxies can blast gas and other raw materials right out of the galaxy, robbing it of the raw materials needed to make new stars, a new study suggests. Previously, astronomers have used x-ray telescopes to observe strong winds very near the massive black holes at galactic centers (artist’s concept, inset) and infrared wavelengths to detect the vast outflows of cool gas (bluish haze in artist’s concept, main image) from such galaxies as a whole, but they’ve never done so in the same galaxy. So the link between the two phenomena was supported only by astrophysical models. Now, for the first time, a team has actually seen both occurrences in a mass of stars—a galaxy dubbed IRAS F11119+3257, which formed from the collision of two smaller galaxies. Its central black hole is as massive as 16 million suns, and the region of space surrounding it shines with the strength of 1 trillion suns—energy derived, in part, from intense frictional heating within the disk of gas being sucked into the maw. Long-term observations of IRAS F11119+3257 suggest that winds near its central black hole blow outward at about 25% the speed of light, the researchers report today in Nature. Close to the galaxy’s center, the winds blast away only one solar mass worth of gas each year, the researchers say. But farther out from the center, the winds push away and remove about 800 solar masses of gas each year. Although in the short term strong stellar winds through gas clouds can instigate star formation, in this case the gas blown out of the galaxy’s inner regions will eventually strip the galaxy of the ingredients for future star growth. The new findings should help astronomers refine their models of how galaxies evolve, the researchers say.last_img read more

Immortals Gaming Company has acquired Infinite Esports in what is believed to be the competitive video gaming industry’s first $100 million deal.IGC announced the agreement Wednesday, expanding its stable of esports teams by purchasing the parent company for OpTic Gaming. OpTic’s franchises include teams in the League of Legends Championship Series (LCS) and Overwatch League.It’s a move back into League of Legends for IGC, which lost its top-level pro club when publisher Riot Games moved to a franchising model in 2018. The LCS team will retain the OpTic name until rebranding to Immortals in 2020.IGC already owns an Overwatch franchise, the Los Angeles Valiant. The company says it will manage OpTic’s Houston Outlaws on an interim basis, with oversight from the Overwatch League, while trying to sell the franchise to another party.IGC will also take over OpTic’s Call of Duty World League team, but says it will divest its Counterstrike: Global Offensive team. IGC purchased Brazilian CS:GO club MIBR last year.Infinite Esports’ investors included Neil Leibman and Ray Davis, co-owners of baseball’s Texas Rangers. They will become shareholders in IGC.League of Legends publisher Riot Games and Overwatch League operator Activision Blizzard have both approved the sale.___More AP Esports: and Seiner, The Associated Press read more

13 June 2009The top United Nations official in Iraq has strongly condemned the “shocking” assassination of parliamentarian Harith Al-Ubaidi, who was reportedly shot as he left a mosque in western Baghdad. Mr. Al-Ubaidi, who headed the Accordance Front-Al Tawaffuq in the Iraqi Council of Representatives, had just left Friday prayers when he was gunned down yesterday, according to media reports. Staffan de Mistura, the Secretary-General’s Special Representative for Iraq, described the killing as “particularly deplorable and a tragic loss.”Mr. Al-Ubaidi was known for his ability to work with all the different groups and political blocs in the country, Mr. de Mistura said, adding that he also worked tirelessly to ensure the rights of detainees and for the enactment of the Human Rights Commission Law.The Special Representative urged Iraqi authorities to pursue the perpetrators and bring them to justice, according to a statement issued by the UN Assistance Mission for Iraq (UNAMI). read more

The United Nations-backed Special Court for Sierra Leone announced today that it has appointed an experienced lawyer from the United States as its next Chief Prosecutor.Stephen Rapp, 57, has been serving as Chief of Prosecutions at the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR) since May last year, supervising the prosecution of those accused of the worst crimes during the 1994 Rwandan genocide.Before joining the ICTR, Mr. Rapp worked as a US Attorney in the state of Iowa for almost eight years, and also spent time as an elected member of the Iowa Legislature and as a lawyer with the US Senate Judiciary Committee.Mr. Rapp succeeds Desmond de Silva, who completed his term at the Special Court in June. Deputy Prosecutor Christopher Staker has served as Acting Prosecutor since Mr. de Silva’s departure.Mr. Rapp’s appointment, which is effective from 1 January, lasts for three years or a shorter period if the Special Court completes its programme of work before then.The Special Court, an independent tribunal established jointly by the UN and Sierra Leone, is tasked with bringing to justice those responsible for atrocities committed after 30 November 1996, during the country’s brutal civil war.So far 11 people have been indicted on various charges of war crimes, crimes against humanity and other serious violations of international humanitarian law.The Special Court has jurisdiction over the case against the notorious former Liberian President Charles Taylor, whose trial will be held in The Hague. read more

first_imgStay on target Scientists Discover Possible Interstellar VisitorWater Vapor Detected on Potentially ‘Habitable’ Planet Another day, another cosmic discovery: The Rochester Institute of Technology found evidence of massive black holes hiding at the edge of spiral galaxies.These overlooked regions, according to RIT, provide insight into the gravitational waves created when these massive bodies collide.Using data from the Lick Observatory Supernova Search (a survey of nearby galaxies), the team discovered a comparable number of black holes in the outskirts of spiral galaxies as in dwarf/satellite galaxies.As explained by study author Sukanya Chakrabarti, low levels of heavy elements in dwarf galaxies create “favorable conditions” for the creation of massive black holes.A similar galactic environment in the outer disks of spiral galaxies also provides “likely hunting grounds” for MBHs.“If these core-collapse supernovae are the predecessors to the binary black holes detected by LIGO (Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory), then what we’ve found is a reliable method of identifying the host galaxies of LIGO sources,” Chakrabarti, an assistant professor in the RIT School of Physics and Astronomy, said in a statement.“Because these black holes have an electromagnetic counterpart at an earlier stage in their life,” she continued, “we can pinpoint their location in the sky and watch for massive black holes.”What a show that must be.“This work may help us determine which galaxies to be on the lookout for electromagnetic counterparts of massive black holes,” co-author Brennan Dell, a recent RIT graduate who analyzed the data with Chakrabarti, said.The recent findings complement Chakrabarti’s earlier work, which showed that outer parts of spiral galaxies are a conducive home for MBHs, and can contribute to LIGO detection rates.Her latest study isolates potential candidates within these favorable galactic environments.“We see now that these are both important contributors,” Chakrabarti said. “The next step is to do to deeper surveys to see if we can improve the rate.”The full study, funded by NASA and the National Science Foundation, will appear in an upcoming issue of Astrophysical Journal Letters.last_img read more

first_imgLocal law enforcement waits for guidance.Washington voters on Tuesday opened a whole new market to legitimize marijuana growing, packaging and selling and also created a potentially lucrative new source of state tax revenue. And despite its narrow defeat in Clark County, the statewide passage of Initiative 502 to legalize recreational pot use among adults effectively thumbed its nose at the federal government’s long-standing anti-marijuana policy. Possession in small amounts becomes legal on Dec. 6 in Washington, based on the initiative. Posession still may be risky for non-medical users because state law is trumped by federal law, which classifies pot as a Schedule 1 controlled substance under the Controlled Substances Act of 1970. That’s why local businesses say they need more answers before they’ll feel comfortable stocking their store shelves with marijuana for sale, said Bobby Saberi, co-owner of Mary Jane’s House of Glass, a Vancouver-based chain of nine head shops. His chain’s eight Washington stores won’t dispense marijuana without some assurance the activity would be tolerated on a federal level, Saberi said. That question could be part of a year-long discussion state officials anticipate as they craft rules for implementing Initiative 502, said Mikhail Carpenter, a spokesman for the Washington state Liquor Control Board, which will regulate marijuana shops.last_img read more

first_imgA walrus haul-out in the Serdtse Kamen Cape on the Chukotka Peninsula. (Photo: Anatoliy Kochnev, Haulout Keepers)Norwegian police and Special Forces  cleared Green Peace protestors off an oil rig in the Barents Sea this week. Activists have since been using a boat to block access to the proposed drill site, which could become the world’s Northern-most offshore oil well. The action is part of increasing efforts by environmental groups.Download Audio“We are escalating our actions against Arctic drilling. I mean, the oil industry is escalating their activities in the far North, and so are we,” said Arctic campaigner Sune Scheller from aboard the Esperanza in the Barents Sea.Scheller was in Point Hope two years ago with Green Peace protesting Shell’s offshore exploration in the Chukchi Sea. And while the company announced earlier this year they won’t be resuming work in Chukchi waters this season, there’s an American company that will—but on the Russian side.“Seismic surveys will go along in certain parts of the Russian license areas this year and next year, just like we did in the Kara Sea,” said Patrick McGinn, spokesperson for ExxonMobil, which is partnered with Russian energy company Rosneft in several oil and gas ventures, including a seismic survey in the Chukchi Basin above the Chukotka Peninsula west of the Bering Strait.Seismic surveys are an early step in assessing potential oil reserves, and use blasts of air to map the sea floor.In its partnership, ExxonMobil handles project management and technical expertise, while Rosneft handles local affairs. McGinn says both companies have extensive protocols in place to make sure national and international rules are closely followed.“Just like in the United States, in Russia the oil companies are required to have public consultation meetings, and Rosneft does that with their local communities where they talk about what’s going to take place.”But several groups in the Chukotka region have criticizedRosneft’s conduct in the consultation process. They’ve filed a claim with the public prosecutor’s office alleging that the ecological assessments are based on a different habitat, and insufficiently consider social and environmental impacts on marine mammals near Chukotka. Aleksey Zimenko, director of the Center for Wild Nature Preservation, wrote in January that by ignoring input from local populations, Rosneft is violating current legislation in Russia.There’s also disagreement over the impact to marine mammals from seismic testing—a  debate taking place in Alaska, too.Sue Banet is with the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, which handles oil and gas permitting in US federal waters, and bases its seismic regulation on scientifically established protocols. American companies like ExxonMobil are extremely careful when it comes to the regulations around monitoring marine mammals, Banet said.“During activity there will be continual monitoring from the agencies—and BOEM in particular—based on reports from observers that will be on all the ships, and also from weekly reports on operations.”The monitoring program puts trained observers on survey boats. Their job is spotting whales, walruses, and other marine mammals, and instructing the crew to reduce or cease seismic operations until the animals have passed.McGinn says ExxonMobil takes the measures very seriously, adding, “although, I got to tell you, we’ve been doing this for many decades in the water and there’s never been a documented case, a proven case, of a marine mammal being injured by a seismic testing.”But many say the monitoring program doesn’t work. In December, Anatoliy Kochnev, a Russian walrus biologist, wrotethat Rosneft has offered insufficient evidence seismic blasts will not disrupt the massive walrus pods Chukotkan hunters rely on.In Alaska, the North Slope Borough banned seismic and industrial noise during the fall Bowhead hunt, citing scientific evidence backing up claims by whaling captains that—observed or not—underwater noise deflects whales.For Scheller, proper conduct is irrelevant because development is premature so long as there’s no real ability to cleanup accidents if a well does go online.“There is no oil spill response plan when a major oil spill takes place that far North,” Scheller said. “You have to take into consideration the very long distance to any usable infrastructure, the amount of ships that can respond to it is minimal. And when the oil gets mixed with the ice it just becomes an impossible job to do.”While activists protest Arctic drilling in the Barents, ExxonMobil and Rosneft are set to begin work this season once the last of the Chukchi sea ice moves out.last_img read more

first_imgWith Battlefield 1 having recently been released and Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare just a couple of weeks away, Titanfall 2 has some stiff competition in the world of AAA first person shooters this year. Whereas the previous Titanfall launched virtually unchallenged, Titanfall 2 is going to have a tough time securing a spot on gamers’ shelves this fall.Despite being the underdog of the three-way FPS race, Titanfall 2 does have a lot going for it. New features, a revamped multiplayer, and the inclusion of an honest-to-goodness single player campaign make Titanfall 2 superior to its multiplayer-only predecessor. Now that it is on the PlayStation 4, the Titanfall series has room to grow exponentially and has a better shot at becoming one of this generation’s powerhouse franchises. If you’re an FPS fan, this is one game you’ll regret overlooking.Below are five reasons why you should be excited for Titanfall 2.A single player storyIt’s best to start off with the one thing everyone wanted from the first Titanfall — an actual single player story. Respawn had plans to include a campaign mode in Titanfall but lacked the time and resources. Thanks to an overwhelming amount of fan requests, Titanfall 2 boasts a story that will be every bit as engaging as the multiplayer mode.The story itself focuses on a soldier named Jack Cooper who allies with his squad mate’s Titan (BT-7274) in order to fight aliens, robots, and human enemies on a hostile world. Though the story is linear, levels are open-ended enough that players can accomplish goals any way they wish. Like any good FPS game, players have to take out foes by using an obscene amount of fire power. However, certain sections allow for a more stealthy approach. On top of run-and-gun action, there will also be a good number of platforming puzzles to solve.Based on early reviews, the game’s story is one of the best this year — something I don’t think any of us quite expected. The series also has an interesting lore so it will be satisfying to finally see it fleshed out in this game.No one is excludedUnlike the first Titanfall which was only released on the Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PC, Titanfall 2 will be launching for the PlayStation 4.This is good news for several reasons. The main one being that PlayStation-only users won’t be left out of the party this time around. There is also the fact that the PlayStation 4 boasts the largest console user base, meaning that Titanfall 2 now has the potential to become even bigger. This in turn will lead to more games in the franchise — certainly a win for everyone involved.The only sad part here is that players will be segregated to their own ecosystems and won’t be able to play against one another via crossplay. I realize this isn’t something that is exactly common, but now that the door is open to such a feature, it would have been nice to see in Titanfall 2.Free contentRespawn is going against the grain by giving away all post-launch content for free. In an age where gamers expect to pay more for even the most insignificant additional content, giving users free DLC is borderline insanity. This fact alone should earn Respawn a lot of credit among gamers and pay off with boosted game sales.Vince Zampella said that he and the team want players to be “happy with their $60 game.” Because of this mindset, all of the game’s maps and modes will be available to download at no additional charge. Releasing DLC for free will cost Respawn money, but as I mentioned above, if the game ends up selling more copies because people know all of its DLC will be free, the losses will be mitigated.Releasing free DLC is certainly a gamble, but one that should pay off (quite literally) if Respawn engenders enough goodwill from the gaming community.Revamped multiplayerTitanfall had a solid multiplayer the first time around and Respawn is looking to take what worked and streamline it for the sequel. While multiplayer may not be the only playable mode in Titanfall 2, it is still receiving all of the attention it needs in order to compete with the likes of Battlefield 1 and Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare.Some of the chaos of the first game has been toned down in order to make things friendlier for newcomers. After all, you want people to have a grasp of what’s happening around them in multiplayer in order to make things fair. One way the game is doing this is by making it so your position isn’t revealed to players whenever you shoot at NPC foes. The last thing you want is for another player to shoot you in the back while you’re busy defending yourself from AI opponents.There is now a heavier emphasis on customization. Everything from your player character to Titan can be customized in a variety of ways. More options open up as you level up, but even at lower levels you are given a lot of things to work with. Customization isn’t just cosmetic either, and there will be loads of options to help tailor the game to fit your specific play style.Overall, the multiplayer mode has more content than before. This is important considering how many players stopped playing Titanfall shortly after it launched. With extra modes, more diverse maps, and greater customization options, players should be playing Titanfall 2 for quite some time.New gameplay mechanicsIt wouldn’t be fun if Titanfall 2 was exactly like the first game. Thankfully, Respawn has added a few new mechanics meant to not only differentiate it from its predecessor, but make the game more enjoyable overall.New mechanics include a throwable pulse blade that shows the location of nearby foes, a holographic pilot that copies a player’s actions, the ability to slide, and a grappling hook that helps players traverse the world more efficiently. There is also the inclusion of classes for Titans, each with its own set of abilities.Wall running makes a comeback but it has been slowed down somewhat so that it is easier to chain together with zip-lining. The pace may not be as fast as before, but this helps players get a better feel for their surroundings. And, as previously mentioned, it lessens some of the craziness of playing online. That last part could be seen as a negative, but knowing what you’re doing — especially in multiplayer — is always a good thing.What excites you the most about Titanfall 2? Let us know in the comments below.last_img read more

Undergraduates were asking for safer streets – as the murder rates of a country of almost 30 million topped 25,000 in 2013 – and to end the scarcity of products, along with the country’s elevated inflation, the highest in Latin America.When students took the streets, they encountered violence from the Bolivarian National Guard of Venezuela and armed supporters of Maduro’s administration, which have resulted in at least four deaths, countless injuries, several reported missing and those who were held in custody are reporting being tortured. My country is bleeding out, its students are fighting for a better future, security and prosperity #SOSVenezuela #PrayForVenezuela— Emily C. Olivieri (@E_olivierival) February 21, 2014 However, the vast majority of people do not know about any of this. The government implemented a media blackout, which includes the exclusion of TV stations from cable (NTN24), lack of paper for the newspapers and the blocking of Twitter imaging services. We’ve been thoroughly censored. If you turn on your TV, you get women debating about beautiful flowers.

Venezuelans are using social networking sites to share information and have our voices heard. After reading this brief explanation of our situation, you may help us by raising awareness, so everyone finally hears the truth about the violation of our rights as humans and citizens of this country.Be careful when you share information though, because we don’t have an official news source – we only have ourselves. And we’re hoping it’s enough.Reality for all of us comprises empty supermarket shelves, no medicine at hospitals, highly dangerous streets filled with unpunished violence and a worthless currency.  That is why we are protesting.Venezuela does not serve as a good or bad example for leftist tendencies. This isn’t about socialism, communism or capitalism; governments like to hide behind these concepts to infatuate the people and turn them against themselves.This is about militarization, human rights violations, abuse of power and corruption.
