"Death to the Turks!" – the turkish blockbuster "Fetih 1453" offers anti-propaganda as propaganda. Western viewers should see

It has been a long time since a costume film has been such a mask of the present: The conquest of Constantinople – in the Occident it is more common to talk of the " Fall of Constantinople" the speech – by Ottoman troops lies admittedly already quite a while, exactly 559 years, zuruck. But actually it is not about exact representations of historical events, but Faruk Aksoy’s so juicy as reactionary costume ham beats the current domestic political battles. And thus becomes a reflection of the cultural upheavals of contemporary Turkic society.

Digital rights management

Technical enablers to control the Internet. Part VI: End of the Internet?

Digital Rights Management (DRM) is the current buzzword for the technical implementation of the "intellectual property rights" (i.e. intellectual property rights) in digital media. DRM will implement several categories of exploitation rights, some of which have no direct analogy to the traditional publishing processes.

Microsoft also warned today that the era of "open computing," the free exchange of digital information that has defined the personal computer industry, is ending.

YouTube and Co. – our weekly Telepolis video review

We too have totally underestimated it. Yes, for a bad clown and comical president actor held. But now this psychopath has actually done it: he will go down in history as the first political leader to send out a war declaration via Twitter. Congratulations, Mister President. And please don’t forget to pull when tweeting on the toilet in the morning! The policy of this warmonger has its supporters in our country as well. First and foremost march the cold and perhaps most hebe warriors of the Springer press, who wet dream of a world war with damn German participation. Not only for them this appearance of Stephen Colbert is meant. And what else remains, reveals this clever Krahe.

A life on the titanic

And so to the campaigner Mark Zuckerberg. As we can see from this analytical report, this oh-so-casual guy, who looks quite strange in a suit, is in fact not a person at all. Madness! And here we wonder if the USA is also ruled by a reptiloid? There are enough signs of it. And this is what Jimmy Kimmel has to say about the Facebook mishap. And this is how it looks in Russia in the meantime.

From a'niemals verhandelbaren staatsrason'

An interstate anomaly and a little back and forth that accompanies it. German Anti-Antisemitism (Part 2 and conclusion)

The first text of this two-part series addressed German pride in the culture of remembrance and its political-moral use value, which does not diminish. So he also wants to underline his higher justification by the fact that the "historical responsibility" lives on in politicians and burghers who, through their "late birth" clearly separated from the events of remembering.

"No empty words"

This is precisely the reason for our unbreakable bond with the State of Israel: "Germany’s special responsibility for the Jewish state is part of the state reason of my country. This means that the security of Israel is never negotiable for me as German Chancellor.
