The Blaze of Hate

The Rabbis do not regret the Paris disaster. “It’s Divine punishment for burning the Talmud,” divines a prominent Jewish divine, the Bethel Rabbi Shlomo Aviner, about the Notre Dame fire. In 1242 the French investigated the Talmud, established that the codex contains volumes of hate speech, and finally burned 1200 codices in the square of the freshly-built Notre Dame Cathedral. “The time for punishment is here,” the Rabbi intones dramatically. Not so fast, Rabbi! If we must connect these two events – the historical burning of the Talmud and the recent destruction of the church, the real point of the story is that France once had a strong, virile immune system. That medieval destruction of that evil book built up a healthy immunity to Talmudic legalisms that helped the cathedral survive wars and revolutions for the magic number of 777 years. But nothing, alas, lasts forever: the resistance of the French people has exhausted itself. Continue Reading

The MANY Methods of Mind Manipulation . . . a Worldwide Operation

The MANY Methods of Mind Manipulation . . . a Worldwide Operation A “profane” or materialistic view of telepathy became commonplace after World War II. Just as new mathematical models and theories of physics had been brought to bear on development of the atomic bomb, so too new tools were brought to bear on the human mind. Just as Cold War scientists raced to design rocket engines and missile technologies that would give their country superiority on the nuclear battlefield, so too did scientists rush to develop ever more complex and thorough models of the human… Continue Reading

The World to Come

[NW’s Note: Chris Hedges’ vision may seem very pessimistic, but many elements are already present and others close to manifest themselves. However, nothing in the matter seems eternal, not even such a totalitarian world. Will the delivery of a desirable New World for Humanity be painless?] The World to Come The ruling elites are painfully aware that the foundations of American power are rotting. The outsourcing of manufacturing in the United States and the plunging of over half the population into poverty will, they know, not be reversed. The self-destructive government shutdown has been only one of… Continue Reading

The Transcendental Treasury of Truth, Beauty, and Goodness

The Transcendental Treasury of Truth, Beauty, and Goodness  Author: Ann Gauger If you want to cultivate a spirit of gratitude, I’d like to suggest that you spend some time in meditation on truth, beauty, and goodness. They each represent gifts to us, things that make life possible, intelligible, and worth living. They are such essential qualities that we call them transcendentals. They transcend our everyday knowledge and point toward a source that is at least capable of truth, beauty, and goodness.  Why do we value them?  They are the foundations on which a life worth living is built. They enable… Continue Reading

Macron Resigns

In response to the Yellow Vests, Emmanuel Macron will resign Monday at the 13-Hours on TF1 Thunderclap – If there is an article to share on your Facebook page it’s this one! Unfortunately, that’s not what you think. In fact, this article has nothing to do with the resignation of Emmanuel Macron However, now that you are here, you can help prove recent research on social media sharing behavior especially since there is a large population of social media users who do not read the things they share. Well, it’s not a new phenomenon. In fact, last year, the NPR… Continue Reading

Note on September 11, 2001, terrorism and manipulation of crowds

The analogy with supercooled water in the Note on “Yellow Vests” and Social Movements is applicable to the events of 11 September 2001 and to state terrorism in general. There is, however, a difference between the two. While social movements tend to start from the bottom or leaders of this base, state terrorism (i.e. actually organized by states against their population or against the population of neighboring states, as in the case of the events of September 11th) starts rather from the top or individuals located outside the targeted population.   If a movement such as the Yellow Vests can… Continue Reading

The Future School

Modern school and “educational” systems have largely proved failure in many ways. In almost all countries (including those in the West), we see a growing proportion of students leaving prematurely school or university. At the same time, teachers are experiencing an increase in burnouts, depressions and suicides. And schools with state-of-the-art technology are not necessarily the most spared. There are various causes for this, depending on nations and cultures. However, it is likely that these causes come from a decrease in the moral consciousness to the detriment of a strong increase of the stimulation of desire. For simplicity, the loss… Continue Reading

After the Marketing

From a certain point of view, marketing is like the art of lying. We do not present products, companies or individuals, but an image of them. We hide the defects, we put forward certain qualities or supposed benefits, or we invent them outright. And the goal is to sell the products, companies and individuals involved in the marketing campaigns. Humanity will gain from replacing marketing with a raw and transparent presentation of facts, so that its members know from the start what to do and make their decisions accordingly without being misled on “the commodity”. The truth about a product,… Continue Reading
