There is a bird in a poem by T. S. Eliot who says that mankind cannot bear very much reality; but the bird is mistaken. A man can endure the entire weight of the universe for eighty years. It is unreality that he cannot bear.

Ursla Le Guin (1929-2018)

Japan and the Summit

Notes:

Slowed by around 125% this video lasts just under 4 minutes. The video deals with Japanese concerns about the Trump/Kim summit and includes a sound-bite from Hitoshi Tanaka, the former Japanese Deputy Minister for Foreign Affairs who states President Trump is undermining the leadership role of the United States. Of more interest is the segment about the Japanese abductees.
