Duly Noted by George Handlery

Daily, “Duly Noted” consults about nineteen publications. Not counted are weeklies or the daily “Russian Hour”, when weight lifting (about 85 thousand lbs) and “Russian stuff” are combined.

ThePolitical Game: New Ball, Rules and Players

Our Idiocy: Apologize for Success, Reward Failure

An Idiocy: Apologize for Success, Reward Failure.

The Innosence of the Guilty

Duly Noted by George Handlery

With monotonous regularity we are served news about mass murder by the virtuous. Consider the killing of “unbelievers” and the reaction to the miscreants.

Duly Noted by George Handlery

Only a few beliefs receive more approval than the concept of the title. At the same time, few notions are more abused than this one.

Britain’s Choice

Duly Noted by George HandleryDuly Noted

Protect the Order of Freedom.

America and Amerika

Duly Noted by George Handlery

National and Social Self Defense and its Tools.

According to a joke heard while a forced laborer “building Socialism”, infidelity is against the public interest. Since marital infidelity tends to happen on the living room couch, these pieces of furniture should be banned. An equally idiotic argument is made seriously […]

Leadership Through Soothing Lies

Duly Noted Politics is the process for making collective choices. Democratic politics endeavor to involve the “common man” because of his “common sense”: He has a right and the qualification to determine his destiny. Crucial assumptions support that thought. What people identify with produces an association which […]

Duly NotedDuly Noted by George Handlery To Shoot, Or Not To Shoot: That Will Be the Question. A lesson of the 20th century is that Europe master ineffectively her self-created crises. Naming the consequences demands that we get brutal to remain honest. Thus, as it involves the […]

Conflicts: A Look at Fundamentals

Our successful societies are under attack. In itself that finding provokes a yawn and not a commentary. However, the challenge has increasingly perturbing features.

The EU’s Europe (EU-rope), America and Security

Duly Noted by George Handlery. January 21, EU’s Europe (EU-Rope), America, and Security. Contradicting the old hit song, not love makes the world turn around. Compatibility or hostility based relationships do that. A main axe of the past century, around which the world gyrated, had been the “transatlantic relationship”. That nexus was expressed by security […]

Duly Noted - Self Imposed Limitations on Self-Defense.

Duly NotedBy public acclamation, the contemporaries of unfolding history “elect” their moment’s defining crisis. This has a welcome function to block out other trends.
