#maps#economics Scandinavia brings down the myths of the historic struggle between capitalism and socialism. Denmark, Norway and Sweden share a common characteristic: a free market economy combined with a system of social benefits, this political system is called social democracy, some sort of modern Welfare State. Among the three countries, Sweden has the largest economy in terms of GDP in the region, $563 billions. Although Norway has the highest GDP per capita in the region, insides the highest HDI in the world, 0.953.

The photo pictured here is of Papwa Sewgolum Golf Course in Durban, South Africa. This golf course has an interesting history - it is named after a golfer of Indian descent, who grew up in Durban in the 1930s and went on to become one of the best golfers South Africa had ever seen. In fact, he went on to win several major tournaments - including the 1963 Natal Open in Durban, in which he received his trophy outside, in the pouring rain - because he wasn’t allowed inside (only white players were allowed in the clubhouse during apartheid). Sadly, Papwa's performances were putting a severe and very public dent in the government's fantasies of white supremacy, and he was effectively banned from taking part in any more international tournaments. He died in 1978 with a career cut short, and without the full glory afforded to golfers with white skin. He became, like so many others, a footnote to the apartheid regime.
South Africa is now the world’s most unequal country, due to a long history of disenfranchisement, racism, and separation - and the golf course which bears his name is now home to a large informal settlement just opposite the #5 tee.
I’m participating in the @undp exhibition on inequality and climate change at @photoville in NYC, where this image is displayed. I’ll be speaking on a panel there on Sept 20, at 2:30pm at St Ann’s warehouse in Brooklyn - please come say hi.

THE BALANCE BETWEEN CONSUMERISM AND THE ENVIRONMENT♻️, I totally see the dichotomy in this.
I get it, I am a walking #ad at times.
Encouraging people to use my code, discount, buy my clothes etc.
So how do I justify my sponsored content w/ my love for the outdoors.. well..
It’s not my battle to fight.
IT IS NOT MY RESPONSIBILITY TO TAKE ON THIS COUNTRYS #CONSUMERISM AND #CAPITALISM PROBLEM. Do we buy way more shit than we need? YES! Is it killing our planet? HELL YES!
But am i going to be able to stop and fix all these issues alone? No, I have school to get through, bills to pay, and nonprofit to run.
So what I mean is.. I can’t directly stop people from buying stuff, people will buy stuff regardless of whether I am in their lives or not. BUT I can help impact their buying decisions to be more ethical, conscious, and controlled.
With this platform I am aware of the responsibility and privilege I hold.. when I post something I know it has the pontetial of creating more waste in an already over consumptions world.
I get a flood of DMs trough out the day asking where I got my earrings, shoes, backpack, even my bookshelf! And I get it I’m a consumer myself!!! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
BUT this is why only I agree to partner with brands like @hydroflask .. helping eliminate the demand for packaged single use plastic bottles(&coffee cups) (@hydroflask y’all.. your marketing we still got to work on that one 😉need to brownify it a little). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I don’t have the perfect answer for our overconsumption issue but if I can help you make more informed buying decisions while also paying my bills, then that’s a win in my book.

Mit dem Kapitalismus werden wir den Planeten nicht retten. Egal wie sehr wir mit grünen Ideen versuchen werden weniger Schadstoffe in die Luft zu blasen. Durch die konsumgetriebene Gesellschaft werden wir keine echte Wende im Klimaschutz erreichen. Massenproduktion als Basis des Kapitalismus zerstört diesen Planeten.
Für einen echten Klimaschutz müssen wir den Kapitalismus beenden.
The Communist Party of Japan by guerilla.marxist.
The 日本共産党 was founded in 1922, immediately banned by police and members were persecuted. The KPJ from then on was active in the underground, and also the only party to be against Japans involvement in the Second World War.
Following Japans defeat, the banned parties became legal again, but in the so called "Red Purge" in the 1950s members and sympathizers of the CPJ were removed from official departments, just like we saw in Germany during the 1970s.
The government of Japan adopted a law which allowed them to monitor every activity of CPJ members.
