This reminds me of the poem by the great Irish poet W.B. Yeats, where the best lack all conviction, and the worst are full of passionate intensity.@Potus

“There is another world, but it is in this one.” ― W.B. Yeats

not stand in one place.” ― Chinua Achebe

The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society
Law & Politics

The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and
opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society.
Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an
invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. We
are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas
suggested, largely by men we have never heard of. This is a logical
result of the way in which our democratic society is organized. Vast
numbers of human beings must cooperate in this manner if they are to
live together as a smoothly functioning society.

If we understand the mechanism and motives of the group mind, it is
now possible to control and regiment the masses according to our will
without them knowing it. Edward Bernays

The forgotten occupation @Politico

Few in the United States have ever heard of Western Sahara, the
Sahrawi people, or the 40-year conflict over this vast arid region in
North Africa. But it represents one of the longest ongoing military
occupations in the world — and the situation there may rapidly
deteriorate without decisive action by the U.N. Security Council.

The Kingdom of Morocco has occupied Western Sahara since the end of a
16-year war between the countries in 1991, under the promise that
Western Sahara could hold a vote on its independence. Twenty five
years later, that vote has still not come. Last month, Morocco
forcibly expelled dozens of U.N. staffers from the area, effectively
grinding to a halt the work of a U.N. mission established at the end
of the war.

Characterized as “the last colony of Africa,” Western Sahara was
invaded by Morocco in 1975 as Spain withdrew its colonial footprint
from the region. After Western Sahara’s 16-year war for its
independence, the U.N. brokered a cease-fire agreement between the
territory and Morocco, premised on the chance for a Western Sahara
referendum on self-determination. The U.N. established a mission
(MINURSO) to monitor the agreement and organize the referendum.
