[News] Around The Rest of World

A posting place for news from places around the globe, outside of the US/Europe.

This Psychiatric Hospital Used to Chain Patients. Now It Treats Them.

Sierra Leone, one of the world’s poorest countries, is working to build a modern mental health system from scratch.

Great! I like good news.

~mod~ What did we literally just say about going after one another instead of discussing articles?

Thanks! I kind of thought you were annoyed but I am happy you want me to keep going.

In all fairness though I do believe the Jewish people deserve a homeland, I do not believe they should be terrorized in their homes, and I do believe in a long, long, loooong history of their mistreatment by ... well about everyone. However I don't think that excuses anything and everything they do.

The whole two wrongs don't make a right thing...

The conflation, whether intentional or not, of jewish people and Israel did not escape me. It says a lot.

Anyway there's a specific Middle East D&D thread if people really want to talk about it.

But of course someone kind of killed the conversation in there 4 years ago...

See note above in Maverickz's post. Since we can't get this thread back on the rails, and I apologize for my part in that, it looks like we'll be needing to end it now. Sharing a screenshot of the page pre-edits with the mod channel and we'll reach out to folks via pm's. - Amoebic

Apologies to all who attempted to keep things on-topic despite all of this. Since this conversation is 2 years old and has soured, another thread can be created when the need arises.
