Its hard to sympathise when arch-capitalists such as Bill O’Reilly, Katie Hopkins and Sean Hannity find themselves at the receiving end of corporate savagery There is a delicious irony when free market zealots become victims of the very system they celebrate. When those who pontificated over and over about the evils of the “nanny state” and the genius of consumer choice and the “invisible handsuddenly realize that consumers dont like them any more, and that invisible hand is about to yank them out of their position of power. When the market tells them: “You know what? Youre losing us money. We couldnt care less what you did or how much you made for us yesterday. Get lost.” Of course, it is “leftists” and “liberals” who are most often accused of not being tough enough to survive in the dog-eat-dog world of capitalism. Leftysnowflakes” need the warm embrace of the state to compensate for their inability to cut it in the real world.

“The number of visas being issued is the same. And automation is a bigger threat for manufacturing and BPO sectors, not for core developers,” says Kumar, 28, who is convinced that the motive behind his company’s large-scale layoffs is to cut costs. “They want to get rid of mid-level executives and then hire fresh graduates who can do the same job for less. The irony is that, after being told to resign, I am still getting mails from job portals that my company is hiring for the same job profile,” he says. “The easiest way for the company to improve its margins is through layoffs. Bengaluru’s software companies are now like Maharashtra’s textile mills,” says a despondent Kumar, who was threatened by his HR team that they would snatch away his identity card if he did not resign. He plans to look for another job in Bengaluru for at least three months, before relocating to another city.

An Indian film that addresses social themes and stars actor Aamir Kahn has captivated audiences in China. The film is thriving, despite the fact that India was the only major country to boycott Beijing’s Belt and Road Forum earlier this month. But the irony and sharp contrast of those two developments was largely lost on the millions of Chinese viewers who have helped keep the Hindi language film land in the top slot, despite the fact that it has subtitles and no voice-over dubbing. Analysts, film critics, and social media pundits are still debating what drove hordes of Chinese viewers to this movie, which is not your standard Bollywood mix of songs, dance and bloodletting violence. Breaking new ground According to industry sources, this is the first time a movie that was not made in Chinese or English has emerged as the top seller in the world's second-largest movie market.

About an hour away, there is the Sequoyah Birthplace Museum. Sequoyah was a War of 1812 veteran who fought under Andrew Jackson and an illiterate Cherokee man who invented a language and ornate script that's ultimately used during the era of removal and is still used today. This is a moment when federal government puts money into a civilization policy the idea that Cherokees were capable of participating in the American project, but that that they had to make certain standards of civilization, which meant converting to Christianity, speaking English, being literate, transforming their gender norms. The irony, however, is that literacy in Cherokee was higher than literacy rates in the U.S. at time of the forced removal. Sequoyah ended up leaving to go West before forced removal, so on the one hand, he was resisting the colonists' civilization project, yet he continued to be a conciliatory figure and worked to resolve differences between the two sides once forced removal happens.

For instance, modern Buddhism is the result of transformed tradition, where an affinity for scientific understanding reigns supreme. Robert Sharf , a scholar of Buddhist studies at UC Berkeley, weighed in on the subject : ...the critiques of religion that originated in the West resonated with [Buddhist's] own needs as they struggled with cultural upheavals in their homelands. [While] for Westerners, Buddhism seemed to provide an attractive spiritual alternative to their own seemingly moribund religious traditions. The irony, of course, is that the Buddhism to which these Westerners were drawn was one already transformed by its contact with the West. And in his book The Scientific Buddha , Donald S. Lopez, Jr., a professor in the Department of Asian languages at the University of Michigan, says : For the Buddha to be identified as an ancient sage fully attuned to the findings of modern science, it was necessary that he first be transformed into a figure who differed in many ways from the Buddha who has been revered by Buddhists across Asia over the course of many centuries.

Childhood’s best moments? A rollicking day out with my friends at Walsingham House School – the very best years of my life School daysdream? To get married after high school and have lots of children (the irony is that I have no children and one of my biggest regrets in life) Lesson from a teacher? Another irony of life is that my Hindi teacher was so frustrated with my poor knowledge of the language and my indifference to remedy this that his prophecy was: “ye ladki life me kuch bhi nahin karegi.” I guess that comment spurred me on to eventually do something! When everything came to an end? Never had a fascination for chocolates or ice cream but was hooked on Coca Cola and was devastated when it was banned in India in 1977. Way to spend time? I am a Bollywood buff. Hard to call out one or two but since you asked I would say Mughal-e-Azam and Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gum.

Both Darth Vader ( see video ) and Professor Snape realized they were only tools of powers above them, things to be manipulated rather than sentient beings of free will. The severest irony is they both recognized their service to the “dark side” included deaths of their loved-ones and even themselves whenever convenient to their “masters.” That was Snape’s ending, although his path was taken with honor to infiltrate the darkness (4-minute video): But that should be an obvious conclusion to those working in the real-world version of these analogies. We see it in the macro picture of millions killed every year through war and poverty, and in micro with individuals who we know. For years, I have recommended Truth and Reconciliation to exchange full truth and return of public assets for no prosecution and a guaranteed provided comfortable retirement.
