Chaotic scenes as crush kills dozens at religious festival in Israel

At least 44 people have been killed in a crowd crush at a Jewish religious gathering in northern Israel attended by tens of thousands of people, in one of the country’s worst peacetime disasters.
Emergency services and ambulances also said that more than 150 people had been injured at the Lag Baomer gathering at the foot of Mount Meron. The event was the first large-scale religious gathering held legally since Israel lifted Covid-19 restrictions

    In this variant, Privileged areas cannot contain the tide of violence from disaffected individuals, terrorist organizations, ethno-religious groups, economic factions, and organized crime. Refugees fleeing from chaotic zones destabilize neighboring areas, to stem migration, increasing resources are devoted to police powers, border security, and control of the activities of citizens....

    Ein Virus und das Klima. Auf diese geniale Idee haben die modernen Machthaber seid mindestens 2000 Jahren gewartet. Sie müssen keine Ideologien mehr bemühen, um ihre Macht und ihre Gewalt und Maßnahmen zu rechtfertigen. Kein Kapitalismus, kein Kommunismus, kein Sozialismus, kein Westen, kein Osten, keinrechts, kein links. Es gibt nur noch ein Virus, das wir zum Schutz von uns allen bekämpfen müssen. Und es gibt den Klimawandel, der unser aller Leben bedroht. Dass es seit Bestehen des Planeten Erde, ca. 4,5 Mrd. Jahre, Klimawandel gibt, wird dabei nicht zur Kenntnis genommen. Die Staatslenker brauchen somit kein philosophisch oder staatsrechtlich untermauertes Wertesystem mehr. Es gibt nur noch zwei Werte: Schutz vor einem Virus und Verhinderung des Klimawandels. Diesen Werten und nicht erreichbaren Zielen (dass sie nicht erreichbar sind, ist ein weiterer Vorteil dieser beiden Ziele) ist alles andere ohne Diskussion, dafür aber mit viel Gewalt, unter zu ordnen. Zwei Werte, die die Machthaber sich erfunden haben und gegen die es keine Gegenargumente gibt. Eine mehr als geniale Idee! Auch die Gesetze, an die sich die staatlichen Organe nach Art. 20 Abs. 4 GG zu halten haben, machen sich die Machthaber selbst. Selbst der Begriff der Demokratie verliert seine Bedeutung. Denn das Volk selbst weiß nicht, was gut für es ist. Denn einige wenige Spezialisten sagen dem Volk, was richtig und gut ist. Eigentlich hätte man nach den Romanen von Kafka schon viel früher auf diese Idee kommen müssen. Die Narative des Virus und des Klimawandels hätte man eigentlich schon früher erfinden können. Erste eher dilettantische Versuche gab es mit der Scheinegrippe und der Vogelgrippe sowie mit Greta Thunberg. Mit dem jetzigen Virus wird der Abschluss perfekt gemacht. Der Glaubenssatz der nächsten 100 Jahre wird lauten: Freiheit gibt's nur in den eigenen vier Wänden.
