Stoic Me Up!

Plato observed that Socrates became so wise, probably because he had tried everything else before. Did he? The inventor of Cynicism, a bit later, went further by claiming there was a lot to learn from dogs, or, by viewing man as a dog. That sat well with Alexander the Great (the creator of cynicism and the creator […]

Syrian Strategy, Or When PC Grows Evil

What’s a strategos? A general, in Greek, the commander of an army. What does an army do? War. What have humanoids done in the last fifteen million years? War. Who are we? The descendants from ancestors who won a billion wars. War, that’s who we are (as Obama would not dare to say, although he […]

Fighting Spirit Defines Humans

What does reality consist of? A caste of Lords overlooking devoted Samurai can afford to affect a Zen attitude. However “The  Revenant”, the movie, depicts North America when many of the moods which characterized that continent ever since were institutionalized. The violence is unrelenting… And, with the right perspective, even if not justified, well deserved. […]

Julian Assange & Arbitrariness

Still enjoying the change of mood which pneumonia entails here. So I will be brief. Another disease is what affects Julian Assange. The founder of WikiLeaks has been caged for 5 years, under bogus… Bogus what? I cannot say bogus charges: Julian Assange has NOT been charged. The Swedish police wants to interview him for what […]

Grand Ayatollah Obama, Islamist In Chief

Is Literal Christianism compatible with civilization? “Literal” means, according to the mythical “Jesus” his “New Testament, AND the Old Testament (“Jesus” “said”). The Old Testament shows a jealous, mass-homicidal, cruel, non-sensical and demented God ruling the heavens. Literal Islam reveres the exact same God (and actually Islam reveres “The Book” (= The Bible), and “prophet” […]

Good Faith, Moods, And Truth

Little miseries, and even big ones, are all part of what is needed to present wisdom with occasions for progression, by changing the mood. It’s also a good time to re-read Montaigne’s Essays. Not to say that pluripotent minds are superior in all ways: we know the opposite to be true: all sorts of unbalanced brains […]

Non-PC Answers

“To be, or not to be together” (Tusk, Feb 2, 2016): The head of the European Commission, Donald Tusk (not Trump, although the Trump family name came from Germany) made concessions to David Cameron, the British Prime Minister who is going to organize his “Brexit” referendum within months (I say). Tusk’s concessions seem reasonable to me […]

PLUTOCRACY IS MASS MASTER CRIME

American Racism & Slavery Originated With The Rule of Greed. This Is Just A Particular Case Of Plutocracy: Atrocious pictures on TV: suffering infants with microcephaly in Brazil. Most of their heads are missing. They experience pain, paralysis… The governance of this biosphere tottering under our blows, is cruising to the apocalypse. The Zika virus was […]

“Democrats”, Plutocrats, & Plutophiles

Clearly, we are not in democracy. The Clintons made more than one hundred million dollars out of politics, just telling (financial) plutocrats that they deliver, and can deliver even more, again. Indeed, the Clinton gave financial plutocrats… the world. (With the help of Bushama since.) The official American  “left” is presently ready to select those world […]

Is Oligarchy Intrinsically Evil?

Yes and no. Unjustifiable Oligarchy Is Intrinsically Evil. Unfortunately, be it in China, Russia, the USA, the EU, and nearly all states, this is what we are enjoying now. Here is a little recapitulation of why it’s deeply inhuman, and unfathomably stupid. Considering the mental crisis out there, it’s something to fix as a priority. […]

MINIMIZING EVIL As the Greatest Good

Do the ends justify the means, or the means, the ends? Neither. A completely different answer awaits. We have to change our considerations of complex issues from unsophisticated, uncouth, flying blind, to something much more subtle, inspired by the turn towards more subtle analysis that physics itself had to take, in the last three centuries […]

Record Heat 2015, Obama Cool

2014 was the warmest year ever recorded. 2015 was even warmer, and by far, by .16 degrees centigrade. The UK (Great Britain) meteorological office announced that the temperature rise is now a full degree C above the pre-industrial average. At this annual rate of increase, we will get to two degrees within six years (as […]
