Global Genocide List

Atrocities at the behest of emotion and reason

Genocide takes many forms and represents humankind’s incapacity to be human and a degree of inhumanity towards one’s fellow man that is beyond the understanding of the rational mind.

Genocides take many forms, at one level there is an aversion to a neighbouring community and the development of aggression followed in some cases by complete extermination.

In addition to total genocides where entire populations are reduced near to zero, the art of cultural genocide continues today as Christianity for instance attempts to replace scientific paganism and other cultural practices as does its offshoot Islam that will happily commit genocide as it does in Kashmir and Myanmar.

This is only a partial

Redefining Law

Ideas to save our world

Some of us take time out to reflect on who we are but most are so firmly bound to the wheel of samsara, the illusion of life by their karma that they do not take time or even have time to reflect. This was probably also the case in the most ancient of times when all effort went into survival with momentary time out for recreation and pleasure.

The earliest known laws are encoded within the Rig Veda then further expanded and refined by Manu, the first known lawgiver who is thought to have lived somewhere between 5000 and 3000 BC. “The Law Code of Manu, has more than 2500 laws, although about 1000

A New Paradigm in Law

An ancient rational to be revived

From part one

In part one I have given an overview of how the law has been corrupted to serve the rich and powerful at the expense of not only the people but of continued human existence and life on earth therefore a new paradigm in law is way overdue. I don’t expect these ideas will be a more successful than attempts to save the Amazon rainforest or the Great Barrier Reef yet these ideas must be expressed and perhaps at some point before we go extinct some of the rich and powerful may find their social consciences awakening to the reality that is looking them in the face.

The ultimate prize in

Lord Ram in Mesopotamia

Proving the antiquity of Hindu Civilisation

The Ramayana is one of India’s epic books and lord Rama, a man known for his honour, faith and tenacity has been suggestively and now proven falsely dated by scholars’ to anywhere between the 7th to 4th centuries BCE. Some even attempt a date even as late as the 3rd century CE based loosely on interpretations of texts and archaeology, but there is steadily growing evidence calling these suppositions into question.

Modern researchers are learning a controversial and more accurate history, that Hindu history is far older with the Mahabharata now dated to around 6000 BC which provides context for regional travel, trade and further dating of the Hindu narrative as

India Begat Egypt

Tracing our ancient origins

In the first of the BBC programs on the history of Egypt narrated by Bettany Hughes, the film opens with her describing a large block of what looked like just a big block of sandstone. Bethany describes as rock as an original depiction of a bull created around 5000 BC. This is at the time when the Sahara was beginning to dry out a second time, previously it had dried around 8000 BC so that time (by thousand BC) the Kiffian people may have migrated to the Nile Valley and mixed (or been absorbed into) with the more dominant African culture prevalent through Sudan and Ethiopia.

For me

Mohenjo Daro

Secrets emerging from the dust

Mohenjo Daro and Harrappa are the focal cities for research into the Indus Valley civilisation yet they are only two of hundreds of cities. But by focusing on these two instances we must ask if archaeologists and researchers are missing some vital information?

There are other towns like Rakhigarhi (Rakhi Garhi) much closer to present-day Delhi.

One agreed-upon factor by most researchers is that the Indus Valley people were peaceful, town walls were to keep out herds of wandering elephants and no doubt lions while providing a degree of collective comfort during the hours of darkness.

Another partially agreed factor is that over the past 30,000 years, is that people have been travelling, communicating

India's Dowry Problem

And the origins of India’s dowry system

The modern use of the word word ‘dowry’ refers to the durable goods, cash, real or movable property, a transfer of parental property, gifts or money given at the marriage of a daughter. The older more traditional meaning and use was that this was a gift to the bride as her exclusive property.

In India due to British manipulation of Hindu Law, it became the price paid by the bride’s family to the bridegroom, his parents and even relatives as a condition of the marriage. It is prevalent in many countries but in India it is more obvious and causes great social harm.

The current British devised dowry system

What Defines a Hindu?

And could you become a Hindu

The idea of Hinduism as most people know Rosen India and in the Western world the colour and joyfulness is spreading. In the streets of almost every major city in the world people are coming out and dancing, chanting and celebrating. Increasing numbers of people are joining these movements so what about you?

As discussed in previous posts, the term Hindu is one of geography and properly refers to the geographic region of greater India more correctly known as Bharat and sometimes written as Bharatha. However in this modern era the term Hindu is applied as a religious label.

This is extremely confusing because anyone born in India is automatically a Hindu. Therefore Moslems,

Hinduism and Economic Development in India

A conflict of knowledge and wilfulness

A discussion on a paper by by A.K. Saran:

If we look at the evolution of economic development in India over the past millennia, some may say it is playing catch up to the west and as of 2019, it is not only catching up but taking over. This is providing positive outcomes for some and further impoverishing others because that’s the nature of capitalism.

When we look at the Hindu political and economic sphere today, it seems to be operating an accord to an extract from the article ‘Hinduism and ├ęconomic Development in India‘ by A.K. Saran who says: “The sociological problem of India’s economic development is

Meet the Romans

Playboys get themselves an empire

With her ability to read between the lines and sense of realism, Mary Beard makes history interesting. She describes the legend of Romulus and Remus and its relevance to the development Rome, a city and state founded on bloodshed. Perhaps in no other time has human brutality ever been eclipsed yet the model of governance espoused by Augustus rules the world today.

Mary describes Rome as a city that takes what it wants and gives very little in return although in the modern era we tend to think that we got our language from Latin, good roads and an education system. But the Romans had no altruistic ideas, medicine was developed to serve the army
