«Così rinvolto in questa viltà traggo il cervello di muffa, e sfogo la malignità di questa mia sorte, essendo contento mi calpesti per quella via, per vedere se la se ne vergognasse. Venuta la sera mi ritorno a casa, ed entro nel mio scrittojo; ed in sull’uscio mi spoglio quella veste contadina, piena di fango e di loto, e mi metto panni reali e curiali, e rivestito con decentemente entro nelle antiche corti degli antichi uomini, dove da loro ricevuto amorevolmente mi pasco di quel cibo che solum è mio, e che io nacqui per lui; dove io non mi vergogno parlare con loro.»

«German Chancellor Angela Merkel admitted Wednesday that she might have to drop her choice for the next leader of the European Commission in a spirit of compromise.
Reporting to the German parliament on a failed effort last week to name a new top team to reform the bloc in the coming years, Merkel said a fresh summit on Sunday could again prove fractious.
“Only those put forward by the European Council for the election of the European Commission president can stand and I don’t decide on this recommendation alone,” she said.»
«European Union leaders have agreed that conservative German candidate Manfred Weber will not become president of the bloc’s executive Commission, Germany’s Die Welt daily reported on Friday, citing sources familiar with the decision.
The decision was reached during talks on the sidelines of the G20 summit in Osaka, Japan, Die Welt said. Chancellor Angela Merkel, who had backed Weber’s bid to replace Jean-Claude Juncker, has accepted the decision.
French President Emmanuel Macron had opposed Weber’s candidacy.»

«Poland, Czech Republic, Hungary, and Estonia prevented the EU from adopting a clear long-term climate neutrality goal at the summit in Brussels on Thursday evening (20 June).
The central and eastern European leaders could not get behind a draft text which said the EU should take measures “to ensure a transition to a climate-neutral EU by 2050”
Climate neutrality refers to an economy in which the emission of greenhouse gases caused by human activity is mostly prevented, and any remaining emissions are compensated through for example planting additional trees or capturing emissions and storing them.
That 2050 target seemed to gain momentum recently after the EU’s largest state, Germany, decided to support it.
Consensus is needed for leaders to adopt official conclusions.
Meanwhile at the summit, the leaders did agree in the text to submit a long-term climate strategy to the UN climate body in “early 2020”, and adopted a Strategic Agenda which identified climate action as one of the EU’s priorities.»

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) on Monday will propose legislation canceling all $1.6 trillion worth of U.S. student debt, according to a report.
The 2020 White House contender will unveil the bill alongside Congressional Progressive Caucus co-chair Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA) and Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), per the Washington Post. The plan goes further than a signature proposal by Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) as the two jockey for support from the party’s progressive base in the Democrat presidential primary.
Sanders’ effort on student loans, entitled the College For All Act, would cancel $1.6 trillion of debt, claiming to save the average borrower roughly $3,000 a year. It is estimated to cost a staggering $2 trillion and be paid for by a series of “Wall Street” taxes on such things as stock trades, bonds, and derivatives, according to the proposal.
Warren’s plan, which she has suggested in a Medium post, will be introduced as legislation, would be paid for by imposing a 2 percent fee on fortunes greater than $50 million, a wealth tax designed to target the nation’s top 0.1 percent of households. Warren projects the levy would raise $2.75 trillion over 10 years, enough to pay for a universal child-care plan, free tuition at public colleges and universities, and student loan debt forgiveness for an estimated 42 million Americans — with revenue left over.
By forgiving all student debts, Sanders said the proposal addresses an economic burden for 45 million Americans. The key difference is that Warren’s plan considers the income of the borrowers, negating $50,000 in debt for those earning less than $100,000 per year and affecting an estimated 42 million people in the U.S.
“This is truly a revolutionary proposal,” Sanders said in a statement to the Post. “In a generation hard hit by the Wall Street crash of 2008, it forgives all student debt and ends the absurdity of sentencing an entire generation to a lifetime of debt for the ‘crime’ of getting a college education.”
