Never happen again

Happening again.

The first step in liquidating a people is to erase its memory. Destroy its books, its culture, its history. Then have somebody write new books, manufacture a new culture, invent a new history. Before long that nation will begin to forget what it is and what it was. The world around it will forget even faster.

Jean Michel Jarre - Music for supermarkets (1983)

"The author himself hid behind the scenes, but his wife was observing everything. Now, when the original was gone and there was only one unique copy, they could begin. Starting from 60 francs ($8), the album quickly reached four-digit numbers. Who’ll give more? You? Or you? OK. Three, two, one! Musique pour Supermarché was sold for 69,000 francs ($9000 back then) to an aged monsieur who had woken up after a long coma due to a car accident. The radio had been playing a sad 1981 song Souvenir de Chine by Jarre at that moment."

There's a slamming track at the 12-minute mark, "Musique pour Supermarché Part IV" latterly known as "Blah Blah Café" from Zoolook (1984).

Shishak, aka Sheshonq I

"Soon, Jews around the world will be celebrating Passover. As usual, Pharaoh will be starring as the main villain for enslaving the Hebrews, killing their children and being generally pig-headed about letting our people go. But perhaps on this Passover night you could spare a thought for a different pharaoh, one who ruled over Egypt in the middle of the 10th century B.C.E and may have played a very different role in the history of the ancient Israelites."

Dancing for his Life

"Ahmad Joudeh was born in a refugee camp in Syria. At the tender age of 8, he discovered the magic of dance. From that day on, his world was transformed. Dance provided an escape from the tumultuous world that surrounded him. He began to post videos of his performances online, and was eventually discovered by the Dutch National Ballet where he was offered a scholarship. Now, Joudeh continues to dance to fight for art, for culture and for history."
