酒のほうが体にわるい、という意見が多い。

おれは、どっちもやらんけど、酒飲みの悪態、記憶障害には迷惑していることもある。


酒は、酒税をもっととって、タバコ並みに実質禁止の方向に向けたらどうか?


大麻は医療用は解禁してもらいたい。大麻が効くと言われる病気にかかったとき使いたい。

Nazi lawyers regarded America as the prime exemplar

2018年10月22日 18時56分06秒 | Weblog



実際には、これは突飛(とっぴ)な議論ではない。1790年の米国初の帰化法は、対象を「自由な白人」に限定した。その後、非白人も市民と認められるようになるが、19世紀後半にはアジア系移民の排斥法が制定され、黒人、先住民、フィリピン人やプエルトリコ人も二級市民に貶(おとし)められていく。

 人種間混交の排除でも米国は際立った。優生学が流行した20世紀初頭には各州で異人種混交禁止法が導入される。人種主義的社会秩序の構築も進み「血の一滴の掟(ワンドロップルール)」により黒人を分類する慣行が広まった。



Hitler’s American Model
The United States and the Making of Nazi Race Law
via wiki



Begin with eugenics. A ruthless program of eugenics, designed to build a “healthy”society, free of hereditary defects, was central to Nazi ambitions in the 1930s. Soon after taking power, the regime passed a Law to Prevent the Birth of the Offspring with Hereditary Defects, and by the end of the decade a program of systematic euthanasia that prefigured the Holocaust, including the use of gassing, was under way.25 We now know that in the background of this horror lay a sustained engagement with America’s eugenics movement. In his 1994 book The Nazi Connection: Eugenics, American Racism, and German National Socialism, historian Stefan Kühl created a sensation by demonstrating that there was an active back-and-forth traffic between American and Nazi eugenicists until the late 1930s, indeed that Nazis even looked to the United States as a “model.”2



To that end they were determined to establish a citizenship regime that would be firmly founded on racial categories. They were further determined to prevent mixed marriages between Jews and “Aryans,” and to criminalize extramarital sex between members of the two communities.36 In both respects they found, and elcomed, precedent and authority in American law, and by no means just in the law of the South. In the 1930s the United States, as the Nazis frequently noted, stood at the forefront of race-based lawmaking. American immigration and naturalization law, in the shape of a series of laws culminating in the Immigration Act of 1924, conditioned entry into the United States on race-based tables of “national origins.” It was America’s racebased immigration law that Hitler praised in Mein Kampf, in a passage that has been oddly neglected by American legal scholars; and leading Nazi legal thinkers did the same after him, repeatedly and olubly. The United States also stood at the forefront in the creation of forms of de jure and de facto second-class citizenship for bs, Filipinos, Chinese, and others; this too was of great interest to the Nazis, engaged as they were in creating their own forms of second-class citizenship for Germany’s Jews. As for race mixing between the sexes, the United States stood at the forefront there as well. America was a beacon of anti-miscegenation law, with thirty different state regimes—many of them outside the South, and all of them (as we shall see) carefully studied, catalogued, and debated by Nazi lawyers. There were no other models for miscegenation legislation that the Nazis could find in the world, a fact that Justice Minister Gürtner highlighted at the June 5, 1934, meeting with which I began. When it came to immigration, second-class citizenship, and miscegenation, America was indeed “the classic example” of a country with highly developed, and harsh, race law in the early 1930s, and Nazi lawyers made repeated reference to American models and precedents in the drafting process that led up to the Nuremberg Laws and continued in their subsequent interpretation and application. The tale is by no means one of “astonishing insignificance.”

First and foremost, the United States offered the model of anti-miscegenation legislation. The notion that marriage between “superior” and “inferior” races should be avoided was widespread in the world in the age of early twentieth-century eugenics.


Indeed in Mein Kampf Hitler praised America as nothing less than “the one state” that had made progress toward the creation of a healthy racist order of the kind the Nuremberg Laws were intended to establish

US effort has been nearly a total failure

2018年10月22日 14時40分15秒 | Weblog





American policymakers were free not only to pursue their direct national interests, but also to pursue grand visions of remaking the world in the U.S.’s own image



“The objective of U.S. foreign policy over the past several decades has been to gradually transform as much of the world as possible through the promotion of electoral democracy, the rule of law, free markets, and by bringing other countries into institutions and alliances that are U.S.-led,” Walt told The Intercept. “This effort has been nearly a total failure. It hasn’t failed entirely, but in terms of stated objectives, democracy is in retreat around the world and is looking increasingly dysfunctional even in the United States itself.”


Mearsheimer undertakes a more radical critique of the liberal foreign policy paradigm as a whole. While he accepts that liberal democracy is the best system to govern the U.S., Mearsheimer disputes the contention that American values are universal. Whereas, for example, Americans tend to prize individual rights above all, others may well have different ideas about what constitutes the highest good worth defending. These may include notions of communal well-being and social stability, alternative ideals that often run in contrast to the American focus on individual liberty.


Mearsheimer also argues that the belief in American exceptionalism, however well-intentioned, can easily lead to aggression. As a power that believes its values are universal, the U.S. seems to be unable to view illiberal states as completely legitimate, making it extremely difficult, if not impossible, to pursue good-faith diplomacy with them. Instead of working out a sustainable balance of power, the U.S. thus finds itself reflexively seeking to undermine the governments of illiberal countries like Iran and Russia, whose values it finds distasteful, even when the strategic benefit of doing so is unclear. This “liberal intolerance” of political difference has helped fuel bloody proxy conflicts that may have been avoided had the U.S. been more willing, at least on principle, to accept the sovereignty of its rivals.


The liberal impulse to define conflicts as moral crusades, rather than as clashes over interests or national security, also feeds an ugly annihilationist tendency in policymaking. A major example of this is the U.S. war in Afghanistan.


Rather than define victory in these reasonable terms, the war against the Taliban was instead characterized as a moral crusade on behalf of human rights, feminism, and an array of other causes about which there can be no negotiation. Rejecting any compromise with an enemy it had defined as evil, the U.S. helped its local allies pursue a campaign of total annihilation against the Taliban and its supporters. Years later, Afghanistan is no closer to being a liberal democracy and the war is still raging there, at horrific human cost. The U.S., for its part, has given up on even defeating the Taliban and is instead simply trying to negotiate a face-saving exit.


It’s not clear, however, whether liberal values are as contingent as Mearsheimer makes them out to be. During the Arab Spring, considerable numbers of people showed themselves willing to risk their lives to achieve basic freedoms of individual expression and conscience, in scenes which at the time resonated strongly with the American public. While the U.S. ultimately sided with the forces of authoritarian “stability” in Egypt, Bahrain, and Syria, the popular movements that arose in those countries showed strong support for at least some of the liberal values that Americans cherish.


Both Walt and Mearsheimer are viewed as deans of the realist school, to varying degrees. Pursuing such a realist foreign policy would likely mean an end to reflexive U.S. support of movements aimed at undermining dictatorial governments, though Walt’s book does leave the door open to strictly humanitarian interventions in certain cases.



 国際社会の力の均衡を見定めつつ、自国の国益を最大化していけばいいのか、個人の自由、民主主義、自由市場を尊重し、アメリカの同盟国=子分になってくれるような国際社会をつくればいいのか、というのが常にアメリカが直面する選択肢である。

冷戦後、後者を選択したがすべてほぼ失敗、これからは、 大量の民族虐殺の場合を除いて、他国には介入せず、国際社会の力の均衡を見定めつつ、アメリカを脅かす国の出現を阻止しながら、自国の国益を最大化していけばいい、というの観点に経つのがリアリストたちである。

 他方、後者を選択したようにみえて、地域の秩序の安定のために、リベラル価値を捨てて、ちょくちょく独裁者を容認しているやないけ、という観点もある。
 
 実際には前者と後者が複雑に混ざったというか、あるいは、両者の間を動揺しているような政策が取られている、といった感じなのかも知れない。

Korean gov.has trouble differentiating between hope and reality、 lies and truth

He based his logic on the belief that it is the time for the international community to loosen the sanctions as North Korea has already crossed a point of no return in denuclearization. But his European hosts gave that notion the cold shoulder.



The French and British leaders even used the term CVID (complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearization) — which is not used by Uncle Sam anymore — and are not convinced of the need to ease sanctions on the pariah state

Though the government has the conviction that easing sanctions will facilitate the North’s denuclearization, Europe thought differently. It believed that only tightened sanctions will lead to denuclearization.



そもそも、北朝鮮は、point of no return 後に引けない段階を超えた、というところに嘘がある。

希望と現実、嘘と真実の区別をつけない、と。

U.N. moves to adopt N.K. human rights resolution in Nov. for 14th straight year: envoy
2018/10/17


去年のものであるが、


2. Based on last year’s United Nations General Assembly resolution reflecting the final report of the Commission of Inquiry on Human Rights in the DPRK, the resolution this year condemns the North Korea’s systematic, widespread and gross human rights violations, and urges the North Korea to urgently take measures to end all human rights violations. In addition, the resolution underscores very serious concerns regarding reports of torture, summary executions, arbitrary detention, abductions and other forms of human rights violations and abuses that North Korea commits against citizens from other countries within and outside of its territory.

 本年の決議は,「北朝鮮における人権に関する国連調査委員会」の最終報告書の内容を反映させた昨年の国連総会決議を基に,北朝鮮の組織的かつ広範で深刻な人権侵害を非難し,北朝鮮に対し,その終結を強く要求しています。また,北朝鮮による,北朝鮮内外における外国人に対する拷問,法的手続を経ない死刑,恣意的な拘留,拉致やその他の人権侵害の報告に深刻な懸念を強調しています。


自国民に対する拷問、強姦、処刑などについてもっとなまなましい記述をいれるべきだな。

コースでゴルフ 3割減 レジャー白書から見えるもの

(1/2ページ)2017/8/24 6:30


■ゴルファー、60~70代が過半数

性別と年代別の構成比をみると、さらに衝撃的な数字がみえてくる。年代別の構成比は60代が23.1%、70代は29.7%だった。60代、70代を合わせた52.8%を上回るのはゲートボール(63.5%)だけ。ゴルフをする人の半数以上をこの年代が占めており、15年(48.4%)に比べて一段と高齢化が進んだ。また、女性の比率は13.7%で、前年に比べ0.8ポイント減った。性別や年齢を問わず楽しめるのがゴルフの魅力にもかかわらず、まだまだ女性の比率が低いのが現状だ。

ゴルフの参加率は5.5%で、前年から2.0ポイント下がった。特に目立つのは50代男性(15.8%→8.5%)と40代男性(11.0%→8.3%)。2桁の参加率があったこの世代の大幅な落ち込みが影響している。

ゴルフ界にとって明るい兆しはないだろうか。前年より参加率が増えた世代がある。10代、20代の女性だ。比率は低いが、10代が0%から3.0%20代は0.9%から1.5%にそれぞれ増えた。今年限りでの現役引退を発表した宮里藍が03年にプロ入りしてから、若手女子プロの活躍が続いており、若い女性にゴルフがより身近なスポーツになってきている表れかもしれない

The current president is just too stupid to be embarrassed about things his predecessors all did

2018年10月22日 06時03分04秒 | Weblog








Hollywood, Silicon Valley, presidential libraries and foundations, politically connected private equity groups, P.R. firms, think tanks, universities and Trump family enterprises are awash in Arab money. The Saudis satisfy American greed, deftly playing their role as dollar signs in robes.

The Saudis blithely assume abhorrence at their inhumane behavior — from beheadings to forcing teenage girls without head scarves back into a burning school to die, as the religious police did in Mecca in 2002, to the brazen murder of Khashoggi, a Washington Post columnist — can be lubricated away with oil and money.


Even as we hailed the Saudis as our partners in fighting terrorism, they were nurturing the monsters who would come for us

The Saudis need us more than we need them. We now produce more oil than they do. And yet we continue to coddle them and shield them from responsibility for their barbaric ways.















The current president is just too stupid to be embarrassed about things his predecessors all did, too

The idea that we don’t legitimize human-rights abusers is a laugh-out-loud joke everywhere outside America. You could fill a book chapter with the history of the friendly relations between American presidents and just the foreign dictators who are credibly reported to have eaten other human beings.


The problem with Trump is that he’s too stupid to be embarrassed by such relationships. He constantly makes all of Washington look bad by jumping too enthusiastically in bed with the blood-soaked juntas and anti-democratic governments we more quietly embraced in the past.

He replies: “I don’t care whether she’s f****** disabled or not – if I tell her to get out she gets out.”

The flight attendant then asks the woman if she would like to move to another seat and the woman tells him she would like to sit near her daughter.

The man interjects: “Move her to another seat … I can’t get in while she’s sat there.”

The woman responds: “You smell. You need a wash.”

Then, the man says: “If you don’t go to another seat, I’ll push you to another seat.”

Later in the argument, he says: “Don’t talk to me in a f****** foreign language you stupid ugly cow.”

A fellow passenger tries to intervene, asking the man to stop being abusive.

But the man says: “I will carry on as far as I can with this ugly black bastard.”



事件としては、窓際の白人のおっさんが立って通路にでようとしたら、体の不自由な黒人のおばあちゃんがすぐに立てなかったので、おっさんがヒスを起こして、差別的用語を使って、怒鳴り散らして、おばあちゃんの娘と口論になった、と。

航空会社は警察に通報した、というが、差別主義者に毅然と対応しなかったということで、政治家から非難、一般人から航空会社のボイコット運動が起きている。
