When economies fall, women sell their bodies for cash
The development of the modern economy began thousands of years ago which gave rise to slavery and prostitution as we came to know it. With the development of agriculture men developed unhealthy desires for the fruit of labour and the joy of pleasure without earning it themselves.
They rated neighbouring lands bringing it back strong men to do the physical work and women for sex. Over these thousands of years, little has changed only the methodology governing the acquisition and control of slaves for any purpose has modernised.
Traditionally in countries without social welfare, the poor have been disposed of or conscripted into another service as soldiers or comfort women. As

Reward for service or escapism
Sometimes we wish life could be more heavenly. but what is heaven and where do we find it? Across the Middle East during a time of growing desertification, Heaven was most often described as an idyllic paradise with lush gardens, an abundance of food and no responsibility, all one’s needs are taken care of.
If we look at the temple Art from north-west India across North Africa, it depicts this idyllic heaven as something akin to the mythical hanging Gardens of Babylon. So perhaps we can say that this was in response to harsh living conditions and indeed those with means either created their own miniature paradise or spread and conquered other lands.

Are The Roots of Crime Biological?
A New Scientist Best Book of 2013. Winner of The Athenaeum of Philadelphia’s Annual Literary Award. Why do some kids from good environments become mass murderers? Is there actually such a thing as a natural born killer?
There are many theories about what makes people behave the way they do, but it comes down to a full belly, a stable family life and peace.
Adrian Raine, a pioneering neurocriminologist introduces the latest biological research into the causes of–and potential cures for–criminal behaviour. A few successful tests show that this approach can, indeed, work. On the island of Mauritius, for example, Raine and his colleagues provided extra nutrition, exercise and intellectual

Past time for change
The place of women in Catholicism and Islam has always been very explicit, that is to be mothers and doormats for the men, to be hidden out of sight and if they dare to stray from this path, they are punished. In light of our supposed civilisation, it’s a source of shame that we still give special privileges to these religious groups and continue to demean women.
We are not sure when patriarchy began but it was probably one day when some man was in a bad mood, maybe he stubbed his toe, maybe he was sad and depressed for some reason and blamed his mother for bringing him into the world. There no way

And crimes against our children
All to frequently we hear news stories of children being bludgeoned to death by their parents, forgotten and dying of heatstroke and exhaustion when locked in cars. We also hear of the paedophilia gangs and the owners of child porn websites being busted by law enforcement agencies.
In addition to the general utility and sex crimes committed against children, huge numbers are kidnapped and sold into slavery with the have no rights or freedoms. All around the world it’s estimated that every year, tens of millions of children suffer as a result of adult abuse and brutality.
Within Islam, paedophilia is legal and normalised, but the problem has increased in non-Islamic countries to the

Will we pay a price for our pleasure and conveniences?
In most families, children are taught and encouraged to do their share to help maintain families and communities. This is natural and they can take pride in their contribution. But in the situation that has become more prevalent in the modern world is that children are being forced into lives of hard labour to help maintain adults who should know better in lives of privilege.
This is one of the darker sides of capitalism where in the case of mining, minerals are taken/stolen from the earth and much of the labour is performed by children were often paid so little that they remain perpetually malnourished and are constantly abused.

India’s loss to foreign invaders
Awake IndiaJai Shiva Consecration of AdiYogi in Coimbatore Youtube
Over 1400 years, India has been raped and exploited by foreigners with different ideologies. It’s somehow ironic that the underlying ideologies of the Arabs, the Greeks, British, French and others are all based of seeds of knowledge from India that have been genetically manipulated.
From a psychological perspective, these invasions are akin to the children attacking their mothers for India is the mother of all nations. Many historians disagree, but the scientists agree that without India’s contribution of knowledge and wisdom, our world could not have developed as it has.
An ancient civilization where Dharma prevailed, India consisted of many polarized societies led by

Could it become Europe’s first Islamic State?
Currently 59.5 million people – nearly 1 percent of the world’s population – are refugees, asylum seekers or internally displaced and half of them are children.
The case of Sweden
The Swedes have taken in more than their fair share of refugees and Muslims account for about 5% of the country’s 9 million people and a backlash against immigrants is building. But it may be too little too late.
In 2016, Sweden received 28,939 asylum seekers. Yet Sweden is a predominantly Christian country in northern Europe but most asylum seekers to Sweden came from three Muslim countries in the Middle East: Syria (5,459), Afghanistan (2,969) and Iraq (2,758).
Why is it that people

Or avoiding another mass extinction event
The Doomsday Clock was created in 1947 to represent how close we are to a global catastrophe. It’s maintained by the members of The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists’ Science and Security Board.
The group of scientists, including 16 Nobel Laureates, announced this morning that we have moved dangerously close to all-out disaster. The Clock’s recent advance to two and a half minutes means that scientists and experts agree that we are teetering on the brink of societal collapse or an apocalyptic scale nuclear war, which symbolically occurs at midnight on their scale.
In the years since the Clock was created we have only been this close to midnight once, in 1953 when the

Women have been counselled to become sex workers
A Tumblr image
The concept of a woman offering sex for money and other favours is generally thought of as the world’s oldest profession and as far as we know, there has never been a time in human history where this has not occurred.
Today in many countries despite the cries of some moralists, what many regard as prostitution has been legalised in many countries. Yet when we look at many marriages, they are often little more than agreements validating sex for money.
Yet moralists around the world even though they may be prostituting themselves condemn the activity of the women who make themselves available to men, but
