Free Speech Versus Islamist Fellow Travelers

Charlie Hebdo, a French satirical weekly, was given the American PEN Freedom of Expression Courage Award. Nice and courageous for PEN to do this. During the attack against Charlie Hebdo in January, 12 victims were killed, including two practicing Muslims (one of these Muslims was the Charlie Hebdo “correcteur“, a supervisory editor; the other was […]

Camels in The Highest Arctic, Again, Soon.

Abstract: Logic and, or, independent observations, show that, considering the present CO2 (and other human made greenhouse gases) density, the High Arctic will be ice free pretty soon (except for the highest mountains, but that’s to be expected). *** Once again, Jihadists decided to kill those who draw with a pen. Fortunately, they met a […]

Teaching The Dark Side Subconsciously

How Respect For Infamy Subconsciously Taught Does USA Academia Teach Respect for Wealth & the Leader Principle? In a society, institutions teach insidiously the subconscious often more efficiently than what they profess officially. Precisely because, being insidious, the “teaching” is subconscious, surreptitious, thus undefended against. American Academia teaches the Leader Principle (Hitler’s Fuerer Prinzip in […]

Correct Globalization

First, some answers to some questions: Kevin ponders: “Truth Saved Germany After 1945,″ and asks: “How real, how deep was denazification, really? Both internationally (case in point, the USA) and domestically?” Answer: Germany is still denazifying. I follow German TV and I can tell you today’s Germans view the Nazis as monsters from another planet. […]

No Reconciliation Without Better Truth

Can we have true peace without truth about the conflict it is supposed to put an end to? No. An excellent example is World War One. It caused World War Two, because the war did not expose the truth. Instead the lousy peace of 1919 nurtured bigger lies, and tolerance for horrendous war crimes. On […]

Too Much Aversion To Aversion Kills Prevention.

Anger Sometimes Not Just Best, But The Only Way: Many people are conflicted about conflicts. They are told conflicts are intrinsically bad, and they should wrought the conflicts out of themselves. Avert aversion, and conspiracy theories, and the world will be yours. This sweetly insipid medicine is central to the plutocracy of the USA, and […]

Genocidal Turkey?

A (good) philosopher ought to tell the truth, a (good) politician, how to sell it. Maybe Obama is acting behind the scene to persuade Turkey to recognize the Armenian Genocide (hope springs, eternal!) The Wall Street Journal talked only of “Armenian Slaughter” (not “Genocide”) on its front page’s cover story with a picture of the […]

Quake In Nepal, Or Why Exploitation Does Not Help Natives

It is not very surprising that a 7.9 Richter quake hit Nepal, half way between Pokhara and Kathmandu. It was expected, and overdue (they come every 75 years, latest big one, 8.1 Richter, was in 1934). More worrisome: a “Megathrust” quake could happen throughout the region, a continuation of the one which happened to the east […]

The MATHEMATICAL MIND HYPOTHESIS

Abstract: A new view is seen (“theo-ry”) for the relationship of mind and universe, and mathematics is central. The Mathematical Mind Hypothesis (MMH). The MMH contradicts, explains, and thus overrules Platonism (the ruling explanation for math, among mathematicians). The MMH is the true essence of what makes the Mathematical Universe Hypothesis alluring. *** What’s the nature of […]

Europe Immigration Massacre

  Something went wrong in the general picture of Europe as the den of horrendous colonialists, projecting force worldwide: the previously allegedly exploited masses swim across the Mediterranean like lemmings, in their apparent desire to be exploited some more. And they drown like lemmings. Greece and Italy suffer the brunt of the “invasion” (which should […]

Armenian Holocaust Versus The Empire of Goodness

If the empire of goodness does not rule, the empire of badness will. If children have exposed when young, to the empire of badness, the habit is hard to kick. If acts of mass murdering horror are not punished, but, instead, make a state prosperous, it is to be feared that the horror will be […]
