Thought for the day

"Those who recognize the stupidity and fickleness of the masses will not be remotely surprised by anything they do." -- Nicolas Poussin
"The church must be reminded that it is not the master or the servant of the state, but rather the conscience of the state. It must be the guide and the critic of the state, and never its tool. If the church does not recapture its prophetic zeal, it will become an irrelevant social club without moral or spiritual authority." -- Martin Luther King Jr. (A Knock at Midnight, June 11, 1967)

Cryptocurrency holdings in FTX that were supposed to go towards Ukraine’s war efforts were instead funneled into biological weapons shelters, we now know.

The unraveling Ponzi scheme involved collecting investor cash and quietly using it to fund Ukrainian bioweapons projects – and all with the help of the National Bank of Ukraine, which was laundering money in collusion with Sam Bankman-Fried (SBF).
