I don’t know how many people have noticed this, but in the past three months it has been impossible for a person to throw a beef burger patty in any direction on the compass without hitting a news article on the “destructive effects” of the meat industry in terms of “climate change”. There’s also been endless mainstream articles on the supposedly vast health benefits of a vegetarian or vegan diet. This narrative has culminated in a tidal wave of stories about vegetable-based meat companies like Beyond Meat and their rise to stock market stardom. The word on the street is, meat based diets are going the way of the Dodo, and soon, by environmental necessity, we will ALL be vegetarians.
You can bet that whenever you find people analyzing the root of a problem you will also find other people trying to derail those efforts with dishonest arguments. For reasons that we can guess at but are rarely able to confirm, there are some folks out there that get rather agitated at constructive discussion among their fellow humans. One of the most common tactics for hijacking the discussion of a problem is to suggest that it is “all pointless” unless those same people can offer a grand solution to the problem. This is Alinsky-style disruption 101.
With their inventiveness, perhaps not always very healthy and constructive, human beings have managed to cheat on many things: on the amount of gold they possessed, covering for example lead with a thin gold leaf ; on gasoline to which water can be added at the risk of having to clean the carburetor; on the […]
One million children joined the V-Star Change the World, which is a Buddhist annual meditation event that occurred at the Phra Dhammakaya temple near Bangkok.
This meditation lasts for a day and is believed to be able to change the world.
The weekend just gone, Manifestation 23, marked a seismic shift in the five month battle between the Gilets Jaunes and the French state. The Notre Dame fire has brought into the open the strategic shift in public opinion that has occurred over the winter; shifts all to the advantage of the Gilets Jaunes. While the cold winter months with their looming darkness only allowed us to glimpse two equal parties grinding away at each other in the gloom, the advent of spring and its clear light, reveals how the Gilets are gathering reserves of strength all over France, and how, now, they are slowly winning in Paris as well. The sight of French police surrounding Notre Dame and denying access to its ‘own’ population, starkly illustrates what the state seeks to deny. After all, these sort of monuments are the materiality through which states demonstrates their connection to the population, their right to rule and their own power.
As a parent and spouse, you try to ensure your family is healthy and happy, and you do everything within your power to keep them safe. It doesn’t cross your mind that the products that you are using to keep them safe may actually be placing them in harm’s way.
When you think of health and well-being, proper nutrition and supplementation are often on the top of the list of ways to keep your family safe. You don’t consider analyzing the products you use for cleaning purposes, for example.
The truth is that there are a number of known carcinogens in our homes lurking in the shower, the toilet, the kitchen cupboard, and the rest of the house that have the potential to substantially increase the risk of you or your family developing cancer.

“Men Have Forgotten God” – The Templeton Addressby Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn More than half a century ago, while I was still a child, I recall hearing a number of older people offer the following explanation for the great disasters that had befallen Russia: Men have forgotten God; that’s why all this has happened. Since then I have […]
The total enslavement of an individual or a human group cannot be done as long as this one has free access to the resources he needs to fulfill his corresponding needs (see Note on the Collapse of Civilizations). Since some of the needs are more vital than others, controlling the corresponding resources is particularly important […]

If we define art as the materialization, the manifestation, the representation or the expression of a set of sensations, emotions or feelings and as a way to make them reflect, then there is a close relationship between the art of a civilization and the sensory, emotional and sentimental life of the individuals who compose it.

The article “Macron Resigns” shows how users of social networks tend to consume information, and even more, often only that which reinforces their beliefs, without seeking or verifying its veracity or deepening by additional research and reflection on the topics covered. In the era of fast food and ephemeral fashions, the phenomenon is not really […]
The Beast, aka the System in which we live, feeds on our excessive consumption, our emotional outbursts, our desires, our fears and our divisions and conflicts. It has survived globally for centuries or even millennia thanks to our ignorance. Many of us are even unaware of our existence, unaware of living in an unnatural, artificial […]
