A decent point, but but not the vibe of the — Stop The Occupation, Hands Off Gaza rhetoric — demanding change.

But all of these passionate Israel-Palestine convos are just hot air — if Corbynism is just Brexit, plus getting out of the great power game as it is played IRL, in Brussels, and with hard power chips in the Middle East.

Corbynism is left-isolationism, but one talks the talk as if Corbyn’s Britain is going to be the top Palestine campaigner in Brussels, with a heavy diplo-footprint in the Middle East to make Bibi worried.

The most bizarre thing about Corbynism to me is — given how much energy it puts into the ethics of Israel-Palestine — is that Corbyn’s Britain would be absent from the Middle East, probably the EU and reducing UK military/diplomatic tools of influence.

Seems a fitting time, given the politics in Britain, Israel and America, to start some of the preparatory reading for Tisha B’Av.

Henry Kissinger is even more overrated as a thinker and interview subject than the late famous after dinner speaker, popular in D.C. and amongst finance types, branded as Zbig.

A shame, because I would have dearly loved to see Trump shred — Deadly Henry’s — underserved reputation in a series of 6:10am tweets.

This interview seemed to confirm my suspicion that he did not in fact write the essay on AI with the byline “Henry Kissinger,” but that was Kissing Associates branded content.

The string of boring platitudes from Henry Kissinger here, working hard to confirm the trurism, that from the powerful platitudes are always profound.

Not to say, I don’t agree with this particular pronouncement. I just feel the editorials read ever so slightly lost in the populist age.

I can feel, an event so slight, dimming in relevance to the Economist’s grand pronouncements — vote Lib-Dem, now a 2nd EU referendum — compared to the early 2000s.
