- Professor Emeritus Yakov Rabkin of history at the Université de Montréal released his open letter “I Left The USSR To Enjoy Free Speech In The West. Fifty Years Later, It No Longer Exists”, wherein he warningly observed: Fifty years ago I left the Soviet Union for one reason: My desire for freedom. I was disgusted by the one-sided world view fostered by the banning of foreign publications and the jamming of Western radio stations. The obedient media, toeing the party line, repulsed me and made me laugh. Fear of the authorities (even if they were far more “vegetarian” than in Stalinist times) restricted open discussion of politics to the “kitchen cabinet”, with a small circle of trusted friends. I left behind my hometown, my friends, my brother and the graves of my parents and grandparents. Applying to emigrate meant taking a risk, because you almost always risked losing your job, many friends and even relatives, with no guarantee that you would even be granted an exit visa. I was lucky. Just a few months later, my Soviet citizenship was revoked and I was able to buy a one-way train ticket to Vienna. My dream of freedom had come true. Although I was only allowed to take $140 out of the Soviet Union, the first thing I bought in Austria was a copy of the International Herald Tribune newspaper. What struck me most in the newspapers and on television was the diversity of opinion. Letters to the editor offered a wide range of viewpoints, some of which not only criticized Western policies but also offered alternatives. It wasn’t long before I began to express my own views, first in letters to publications and then in articles. I was excited by the opportunity to engage in free political debate and to make my contribution as a citizen and a scholar. After all, society had created the conditions for me to share the results of my research and observations broadly. However, things have changed. Today, when it comes to some important international political topics, freedom of discussion is severely restricted. An even more important issue that has disappeared from rational discussion is policy towards Russia. This issue is all the more important because Moscow has the largest nuclear arsenal in the world. Long before February 2022, when President Vladimir Putin announced the military campaign in Ukraine, most NATO countries (as well as Kiev itself) had restricted access to Russian media, something that did not happen in the West even during the Cold War. Just as the Soviets justified their jamming of Western radio broadcasts with the need to protect against “ideological sabotage”, NATO and its member states have created many institutions in recent years to protect citizens from, so-called, “Russian disinformation”. Once prominent Western scientists such as Jeffrey Sachs of Columbia University and John Mearsheimer of the University of Chicago have all but disappeared from the mainstream media: their criticisms of Western policy towards Moscow are often dismissed as Kremlin propaganda. Their views must now be sought on alternative websites in the vastness of the internet. Moreover, the few attempts to take a dispassionate look at Western policy in Eastern Europe face insurmountable obstacles. Freedom of speech is not just a democratic right. It is also a way of defining and weighing alternatives.When conflict becomes an epic struggle between good and evil, rationality is replaced by moral judgment and noble indignation. This undermines all diplomacy and, in turn, exacerbates the danger of nuclear war, the inevitable consequence of which, as US military strategists recognized as early as 1962, is Mutually Assured Destruction, or ‘MAD’. Unanimity, una voce, one-sided debate – call it what you like. But this is about more than just the denial of free speech. The climate it has created threatens the very survival of humanity.
- A renovated train station for an envisioned entertainment area themed on the “Harry Potter” series was unveiled in Tokyo’s Nerima Ward, with a mashup of new features and objects from bygone days. Seibu Railway started Toshimaen Station’s reconfiguration work a year earlier in the hopes of turning “the area around the station into a place for visitors to immerse themselves in the world of Harry Potter.”
- Japan – Health officials issued a new warning against syphilis, saying the sexually transmitted disease is spreading across Japan at the fastest pace in decades. As of May 21, there were 5,453 cases reported this year, up 1,527 from the same period the previous year, according to data released on May 30 by the National Institute of Infectious Diseases.
- The Philippines is the only place outside the Vatican where divorce is outlawed, with the Catholic Church — which holds great influence on Philippine society — opposing the practice as against its teachings. Those in favour of legalising divorce say the ban makes it difficult to escape violent or otherwise abusive spouses, or even for couples to amicably cut ties. People wanting to end their marriage can ask a court for an annulment or a declaration that the nuptials were invalid from the start, but the government can appeal against those decisions. The legal process is slow and expensive — cases can cost as much as $10,000 or more in a country plagued by poverty — with no guarantee of success, and some people seeking a faster result fall for online scams.
- Early signs of hot, dry weather caused by El Nino are threatening food producers across Asia, while American growers are counting on heavier summer rains from the weather pheno1nenon to alleviate the ilnpact of severe drought. El Nino, a warming of water surface te1nperatures in the eastern and central Pacific Ocean, is expected to develop in the coming months, according to meteorologists. The impact of the phenomenon typically causes hot, dry weather across Asia and Australia while bringing heavier-than-normal rainfall to the southern US and southern South Alnerica. As El Nino looms, wheat output in Australia, the world’s second-largest exporter of the grain, is expected to take a hit from dry weather, while palm oil and rice production is likely to suffer in Thailand, Indonesia and Malaysia, forecasters and analysts said. Soil is drying in India and Pakistan, which is expected to hamper summer crop planting, while El Nino is also forecast to blunt the ilnpact of South Asia’s crucial June-September monsoon season.
- North Korea’s first reconnaissance satellite launch has ended in failure after its second stage malfunctioned, sending the projectile plunging into the sea, with the regime vowing to conduct another launch soon. South Korea Defense Minister said it is looking into the possibility of retrieving the reconnaissance satellite that NK has reportedly loaded onto this projectile.
- The wrecked Fukushima plant — three of the reactors of which melted down after being hit by a tsunami triggered by a magnitude-9.0 earthquake in March 2011 — currently stores more than 1.3 million tons of radioactive wastewater in over 1,000 giant tanks. The radioactive wastewater was treated through a custom filtering system known as the Advanced Liquid Processing System, but still contains cesium, tritium and other radionuclides that exceed releasable limits. In April 2021, the Japanese government announced plans to release the contaminated wastewater gradually into the sea beginning in 2023 after a dilution process, which it says could reduce the radioactivity to allowable levels. The wastewater discharge is set to begin this summer and will take at least three decades to complete, according to the Japanese government.
- South Korea lifted nearly all its COVID-19 restrictions Thursday, including the isolation mandate for COVID-19 patients, as the country lowered the COVID-19 crisis level from the top level on Thursday. The President declared that the government would downgrade the status of the COVID-19 crisis from “serious,” the highest level, to “alert,” starting from Thursday, June 1. Indoor mask mandates have now been lifted in almost all places, including clinic-level medical institutions and pharmacies. But the mandate will remain at hospital-grade or higher medical institutions that treat inpatients or residential medical facilities with groups vulnerable to infectious diseases. The recommendation for taking a PCR test within three days of arrival here from abroad has also been lifted.
- The Jeffrey Epstein Files: Trove of never-before-seen emails and calendars gives unprecedented insight into late pedophile’s network of power and influence. DailyMail.com obtained a trove of documents show that Epstein was in contact with world’s elite even after serving 13 months in jail for having sex with underage girls and being labeled a registered sex offender.
- When Japan invited the leaders of Brazil, India and Indonesia to attend the G7 summit in Hiroshima, there were glimmers of hope that it might be a forum for these rising economic powers from the Global South to discuss their advocacy for peace in Ukraine with the wealthy Western G7 countries that are militarily allied with Ukraine and have so far remained deaf to pleas for peace. But it was not to be. Instead, the Global South leaders were forced to sit and listen as their hosts announced their latest plans to tighten sanctions against Russia and further escalate the war by sending U.S.-built F-16 warplanes to Ukraine. The G7 summit stands in stark contrast to efforts of leaders from around the world who are trying to end the conflict. In the past, the leaders of Turkey, Israel and Italy have stepped up to try to mediate. Their efforts were bearing fruit back in April 2022, but were blocked by the West, particularly the U.S. and U.K., which did not want Ukraine to make an independent peace agreement with Russia.
- The United Arab Emirates has rejected the Western media’s “mischaracterization” of the country’s talks with the United States over the Persian Gulf’s security, and announced its withdrawal from a US-led maritime coalition in the region.
- TOne of Australia’s most decorated living war veteran, Ben Roberts-Smith, has lost a defamation lawsuit against three newspapers that accused him of committing war crimes and murdering unarmed Afghans in the war-ravaged country. Back in 2018, The Sydney Morning Herald, The Age, and The Canberra Times published articles in 2018, alleging that Roberts-Smith, now 44, had murdered at least six unarmed Afghan civilians when he was a member of the Special Air Service Regiment (SAS) in Afghanistan. On Thursday and while he was delivering a summary of his findings, Federal Court judge Anthony Besanko confirmed that reports by the newspapers were substantially true in relation to four of the six murder allegations against Roberts-Smith, who denied them altogether. The articles, citing eye-witness soldiers, had alleged that Roberts-Smith went beyond the bounds of acceptable military engagement, recounting brutal treatment of defenseless Afghan civilians by the ex-SAS corporal, who later won several top Australian military honors, including the Victoria Cross, for his actions during six missions in Afghanistan.
- An immense catalog of photos from Hunter Biden’s abandoned laptop were published Thursday on a new website, as the first son faces ongoing investigations into his overseas business affairs and potential tax and gun crimes. Nearly 10,000 photos taken between 2008 and 2019 will be hosted at BidenLaptopMedia.com. “The number one thing we’re about … is truth and transparency,” Garrett Ziegler, who founded the nonprofit Marco Polo, told Fox News. Among the redacted pictures are those that display private information, such as Social Security, banking and credit card numbers. Explicit photos of Hunter’s sister-in-law-turned-lover Hallie Biden, the widow of the late Beau Biden, are also sealed from public view.
- The group, formed in June 2022, aims to examine data related to unidentified anomalous phenomena (UAP), a new term that encompasses objects or incidents in the sky, underwater or in space that can’t be immediately identified. The group, which has $100,000 in funding, includes former astronaut Scott Kelly and 15 other investigators from a wide variety of fields including astronomy, oceanography and even journalism. During a post-meeting teleconference, astrophysicist David Spergel, chair of the study group and former member of the NASA Advisory Council, compared the study of UAP to fast radio bursts (FRBs), powerful bursts of radio waves from distant galaxies that were originally thought to be anomalies
- One of the brightest stars in the night sky has been getting oddly brighter, prompting speculations that it might soon explode in a supernova. Should we really look forward to such a dazzling celestial spectacle? The star in question is Betelgeuse, a huge red-tinged star that sits at the left shoulder of the unmissable constellation Orion. Some 650 light-years from Earth, Betelgeuse usually ranks as the tenth-brightest star in the night sky. Since early April, however, the star has climbed to the seventh spot and currently shines at over 140% its “usual” brightness, according to the Twitter account Betelgeuse Status, which tracks the star’s behavior.
