I watched this last night. I really want to watch this again. Maybe when I have watched it again, I’ll want to comment on it. For instance what Cornel West had to say about USA would be something to think about. One theme was ‘Money is the root of all evil’. It seems to me ‘capitalism’ works like the game of ‘monopoly’. Too many people are getting desperate.

Panellists: Dr Cornel West, Scholar and Poet; Eric Abetz, Tasmanian Liberal Senator; Anne Aly, Labor Member for Cowan; Lindsay Shepherd, Free Speech Advocate; and Jeremy Bell, People’s Panellist.
Dr West argued people had to learn how to disagree well.
“On the one hand we defend yourselves and others who are concerned about the dialogue, the dignity of each voice,” he said.
“We must learn how to disagree and disagree in such a way that we can still have our humanity.
“Friendships are deeper than politics, love is always deeper than politics.
“If you haven’t discovered that, you don’t know what love is, but that’s another show.”
The ABC asks:
‘Do you believe that bigots should have the right to “offend, insult, humiliate or intimidate” others?’
The end of the division (“Die Wende”)
German reunification (Deutsche Wiedervereinigung) took place on October 3, 1990
So today, the 3rd of October 2018, Germans celebrate the Wiedervereinigung. It is a public holiday in Germany.
“. . . . Berliners from both sides of the city celebrated at the wall as well as on both sides of the border after 28 years of separation. . . .” This took place from 9 November 1989 on!
In the “Deutsche Welle” was today an interview with Alexandra Hildebrandt who is the director of the Checkpoint Charlie Museum in Berlin:
This is what I found in Google about Hildebrandt’s pregnancies:
“Friday, October 20, 2017
Berlin – At the age of 58, the museum director of the Berlin Wall Museum, Alexandra Hildebrandt, is expecting her seventh child.
As she confirms to the “Bild”, she looks forward to the seventh child as well as everyone else.
Fifth child in five years
At the calculated date of birth – in January or February – the museum director will be 59 years old. For her, it is already the fifth child within five years. In 2013 she got twins, a daughter in 2014, a small son at the beginning of last year. In addition, Hildebrand has two grown children.
According to the head of the museum, the pregnancy came about in a natural way with her partner, the management consultant Daniel Dormann. Artificial insemination did not need it.
It’s in the family
As she goes on to say, there is a late happiness in the family. Already her grandmother had her last child at the age of 60 years.
For the 58-year-old is the re-pregnancy quite associated with problems. For two months she suffers from chronic bronchitis.”
And here another link:
The above link shows a bit more about Hildebrandt’s marriage to Daniel Dormann.
“A noon showdown for the leadership of the Liberal Party today may seal the political fate of Malcolm Turnbull and decide who becomes the next prime minister.
But the three leadership aspirants — Peter Dutton, Julie Bishop and Scott Morrison — are still waiting for the Solicitor-General to decide whether Mr Dutton is even eligible to sit in Parliament. . . . “
