Can this type of "persons" have a place in academia ? Really ? Is academia nowadays only about profitable science ? And what kind of justice system puts chop lifters in jail and lets these "experts" involved in a crime against the State to go without any kind of consequences ?

If the Brexit is to cost 100 billion euro both to UK and Europe then it seems that Facebook has participated in the biggest robery of all time. I really hope that the European Commission as the Balls to f...Facebook in a big way. Otherwise the European Union will have a very hard time not being f...over and over again by others. I´m not interested to be part of a Europe that can be f...by everyone and i believe that i´m not alone.

Assunto: Can the European Union survive the attack of American giant tech corporate ?

Just after Mr. trump was elected a US ambassador in Brussels said the agenda of the elected president was to contribute to the dismantling of the European Union. And in BBC a proud American has put the things in a more creative way, Ted Malloch said that they expect to tame the EU in the same way that they did to the former soviet bloc. http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world ... 49696.html

Mr. Trump and Mr. Bannon (Mr.Mercer pocket man) and a lot of US senators and congressmen (that are on the payroll of big US corporate) have only one worry, that the European Union stand as an obstacle to the profits of US giant tech corporates

Google Ceo that thinks Europeans are just plain stupid even says that "tax avoidance is called capitalism". https://www.telegraph.co.uk/technology/ ... hmidt.HTML It maybe US capitalism but surely is not European capitalism because in here corporate are not so used to make their own fiscal and environmental laws like they do in US.

The news in link https://www.theguardian.com/technology/ ... -democracyshows something about their efforst to undermine the European Union and let´s not forget that last week Mr.Bannon was on France saying that racist and xhenofobic badges must be wear with honour http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world ... 51601.html What Mr. Bannon has done is no less criminal than what islamic radicals do when they hate preach on their mosques.

And that is exactly why to reduce european fragmentation potential by fostering a more cohesive social structure is more important than to put billions on technovation dreams as mentioned in the email below
