Defeating the Devil Within

Represented by the belief systems of the world

Let’s be clear that any idea of a devil, of an antichrist like all the gods are man-made constructions. The real division is about tangible knowledge versus belief. Belief systems tend to argue that life is only meaningful when seen from their particular point of view. But the key word is belief which pales in comparison to common sense and real knowledge.

When we look at the world, even as you read this text your visual perception only picks up elements in the detail and your mind completes the picture of the words even before you begin to interpret them, and how you interpret is dependent on how your

My India

An overview of Historic Processes affecting India

I grew up wanting to know and for some reason I could never accept what was presented as truth in our social history and my schoolbooks. I also wanted to know the the why of many mystical experiences that I was having and find some context. The fact that I grew up in a remote corner of the planet didn’t do me any favours although in reflection perhaps the advantage was that it made me sceptical of everything.

Like most young people I was confused by the bigotry and double standards displayed by social representatives so I learned to walk lightly. My journey eventually led to India and its chaotic colour filled me

Syria in Perspective

A land continuously fought over

Students at an educational institution destroyed by US missiles as part of a US humanitarian aid package April/May 2018

In the land of Syria you can step back to places like the Göbekli Tepe* tentatively dated to around nine thousand BC and we can see that peoples like the Hittites and Babylonians, Phoenicians, Egyptians and Greeks also laid claim to parts of Syria and of course Alexander trampled over the whole damn show.

Syria fell under Islam and the Ottoman Empire before being ravaged again with world Wars one and two, French occupation and finally a semblance of independence under which the country actually flourished.

A country of fertile plains, high mountains, and deserts,

Who are the Rohingya?

And what’s their problem?

Updated May 22, 2018

Most media sources and wiki describe the Rohingya as the world’s most persecuted people, a population of about 1.1 million people who live predominately in Rakhine state within Myanmar.

The Rohingya people say they are descendants of Muslims, perhaps Persian and Arab traders, who came to Myanmar generations ago but they are mostly ethnic Bengali’s who’ve been Islamised for many generations. But unlike the Buddhist community, they speak a language similar to the Bengali dialect of Chittagong in Bangladesh.

Looking back over 1000 years of history we cannot be precise. It is well documented that Southeast Asia was more influenced by Hinduism over the first few centuries of the B.C. era

Russia's at Fault

Our tribal culture

Over the years we have seen a litany of accusations, Saddam Hussein had his weapons of mass destruction and so many other leaders have previously and since fallen foul of people’s opinions who felt justified in their beliefs enough to go to war and execute people.

This is nothing new, this has being going on for centuries. It begins really with people realising they don’t know and feeling inferior beside those who pretend to know. The thing about being human is that we live on this little planet in some out the way corner of our vast universe and we think we are so goddamn important that we really know stuff of importance. But really, we have

Islam: A Destructive Force

Media hides the dangerous intentions of Islam

Img by Nader Dawah

In May of 2018 there was an unforgettable and important event in the world. A French manifesto called for passages of the Koran promoting violence on unbelievers to be deleted. This has sparked outrage among Muslims who claim their religion is being unfairly ‘put on trial’.

The rationale for these passages to be deleted was to take a practical step to combat rising anti-Semitism and attacks on Jews by Islamic migrants into France and help quell Quran-based Islamic violence that’s become widespread over Europe.

The incident should have been promoted and expanded throughout the world, but the media have been almost silent, their

The Task of Reviving India

Sweeping educational changes and responsibility needed

To the casual observer and the European educated, this idea seems strange because India is a country that everyone chooses to mock without any clear rationale beyond this fact: that Islam and the colonialists having raped and pillaged the country have not been able to destroy what is quintessentially Hindu.

The word/name Hindu of course is an abbreviation of Hindustan referring to the geographic area and not what is seen as Hindu religion, another erroneous concept bandied about by experts whereas the proper term for Hindu spiritual understanding is Sanatana Dharma.

What is the problem of India and why does it need reviving?

India needs to be restored according to the precepts of Sanatana

Credit is not given where credit is due

Indian map from the early BC period

We have all grown up in a Eurocentric world where Europe including the UK became the centre of civilisation after the fall of Rome yet this understanding is more mythological than factual.

One thing is certain and that’s that Europeans love their ideas and on analysis they seem to be almost psychologically attached to them that they have written world history as they saw it conveniently leaving out facts that may shed any doubt on their case. For instance when Vasco de Gama left Portugal in search of an ocean route to India, he had to hug the coast because he did not have

The legacy of Colonialism

A grand deception and a corruption of knowledge

According to wikipedia and many dictionaries, (1.) Colonialism is the policy of a nation seeking to extend or retain its authority over other people or territories, generally with the aim of developing or exploiting them to the benefit of the colonizing country. Then it says (2.) “and helping the colonies modernize in terms defined by the colonizers, especially in economics, religion and health.”

Europe was the last region of the world to become civilised and armed with snippets of knowledge from other places they put their minds to trying to make themselves appear better, smarter than anyone else yet the behaviour of taking over someone else’s lands and possessions is a criminal

Capitalism

A cancer corrupting Humanity

Most people see capitalism is a good thing and nestled within democracy that we mask ask if this is actually a good thing for us and is it really contained within democracy?

Perhaps we should first ask what is capitalism? Capital begins with some form of asset in other words if you create an idea, you can share that idea by giving it away without expectation of reward or you can attach a reward value. But capitalism begins when you attach value to the idea or thing that you have created and can persuade someone to pay your price.

In early human society perhaps a man takes a piece of stone and transformed it into a
