This video is only sort of good. I watched it all and enjoyed it. It gives a decent overview of what else might have happened to Jesus after he died. Most Buddhists probably know there is a Buddhist angle to the story—that he went to Kashmir and lived a long life as a monk. This part of the film is presented in the last ten minutes or so. Other possibilities are reviewed in the foregoing parts. Definitely worth a look if you are not familiar with this subject. ABN
A simple look at history tells us that not only is economic protectionism a good thing for America, but that it has been the historic position of the Republican & Whig Party, going all the way back to the Founders of the nation.

I am not Jewish but I am from a very small European minority and I have been thinking like this for as long as I was conscious of these issues. Why would any small group want to undermine the larger group that surrounds it? Why not be helpful, friendly, and gracious? Without harmful hidden motives.
It’s the same for all other groups. You can support aggressive resource grabbing (which benefits greedy people at the top) or you can do your best to get along. It’s hard to get along.

The same reasoning applies to all groups everywhere for both practical and spiritual reasons. I follow Asian American news fairly closely. So many complaints about YT (whitey). Why teach yourselves to be like that? It makes you blind to the many people who care about you.
“This organized mass murder was carried out by our country and no one else. Individual collaborators change nothing about that,” said German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel. “We are convinced that only carefully appraising our own history can bring reconciliation. That includes people who had to experience the intolerable suffering of the Holocaust being able to speak unrestrictedly about this suffering,” said Gabriel. (Source)
Well-worth viewing. Provides a very important perspective on European history that few appreciate today. ABN
