“I used to analyze myself down to the last thread, used to compare myself with others, recalled all the smallest glances, smiles and words of those to whom I’d tried to be frank, interpreted everything in a bad light, laughed viciously at my attempts ‘to be like the rest’ –and suddenly, in the midst of my laughing, I’d give way to sadness, fall into ludicrous despondency and once again start the whole process all over again – in short, I went round and round like a squirrel on a wheel.” ― Fyodor Dostoevsky, Crime and Punishment

1. Origin of the US Dollar and its sign

Where and how did the US Dollar word and sign come from?  A very intereting story that involves Holy Roman Emperor Charles V, the Twelve Labours of Hercules, hasty accounting, and a silver mine in Bohemia.

2. Ukraine War - Who was behind it?

Is the Ukraine war because of Russia?  Or is it a larger story?

What role did the US establishment play?  We have discussed this earlier in our newsletter.

Drishtikone Newsletter #331: Ukraine, the next Afghanistan?
From NGOs for Democracy Promotion to takeover by Private Militias, Ukraine’s slide was ‘managed’. Detailed behind-the-scenes games in Ukraine.

If the Twitter Files has taught us one thing, it is that the US establishment will do every thing to push its propaganda in the typical North Korea style by forcing the hand of every corporate player out there.  Media, Social media, Banking and Financial.

3. Profound pictures that describe life

Like they say, a picture is worth a thousand words.  Some of these pics are very profound.  Do check them out and contemplate.

4. A quick take on Economic Survey

With the world headed for deep recession, India will be the only shining star within the global economy.  As the GDP growth remains steady around 7%, the inflation is forecasted to fall (from 6% to 4% in 2024)

Here is a quick version of the Economic Survey that you can check out for understanding the crux of the Indian economy.

5. Trudeau's horrific new laws

Trudeau is the darling of the liberal-left elite.  And, these days the le-li politicians are far more dictatorial and fascist than those in Iran and North Korea.  We have seen ample proof of that.  

This thread catches the main laws that Justin Trudeau plans to pass laws in the space of journalism and cybersecurity which will hurt the freedoms that people have.  There has been opposition to these bills from various places.  For example, the Computers and Communications Industry Association discusses the issues with Bill C-11: CCIA Releases White Paper on Canada’s Proposed Online Streaming Act, Threats to U.S.-Canada Trade
