Frank Gehry – is there one politician somewhere with a similar creativity

Frank Gehry on his ground-breaking new gallery design
Isn’t it just amasing what human creativity and a sense of beauty can create? This is a magnificent new ‘sculptured’ building by Frank Gehry, mostly known perhaps for the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao.

Now, imagine that the profession called politician could show us just one man or woman with the same free spirit and mind, just a fraction of such innovative thinking!! And if they have creativity it is in how to fool, deceive, lie, destroy and play games…

We need creative politics or, as György Konrad once called iy, anti-politics…

► ► Bosnia today and Yugoslavia then

Voting has begun in Bosnia in an election dominated by nationalist rhetoric and a stagnant economy.

A good 2000 pages by three scholars who were present during the wars in Yugoslavia and did not buy the Western political and media simplifications and blame game.

Neither did they buy the Western ‘peace’ making, the results of which can be seen in today’s Bosnia, Kosovo, Macedonia, Serbia and Croatia.

You can’t fool all of the people all of the time but you can fool quite a proportion of the people most of the time – but not forever.

If there is one thing that should be abundantly clear by now it is this: As brilliant as the West is at fighting wars as lousy it is as a mediator and peacemaker – a major reason it is going down in relation to the rest of the world. By and large that process started in Yugoslavia.

☮ ☮ TFF PressInfo 283: Nobel’s Peace Prize is not a human rights prize

The Nobel Committee again ignores Alfred Nobel’s words and spirit. Just spend 3 minutes and read Nobel’s will.

Establish a new committee composed of experts in peace and not retired members of parliament.

Peace people around the world have been deprived of their prize and I say so even though I have the highest respect for the two winners. They should, however, have received a human rights prize instead.
