The calls to accept and normalise paedophilia

Before getting into this argument, we must remember that paedophilia has been going on for centuries in some form or other. In many cultures girls became married soon after their menstrual cycle commenced but there is very little record or evidence to support any ideas that what we refer to as paedophilia today existed before the rise of the Greek and Roman empires. The civilised world that stretched from the Mediterranean, North Africa, South and Southeast Asia are thought to have been much better organised and responsible.

Under the Greeks and Romans who used slaves to create their empires, a new kind of indolence and leisure developed along with a disregard for life

The Consequences of Alcohol

And it’s impact on civilisation

Published on: 18 Aug 2016, Updated 18 Aug 2018

It’s a well established fact that alcohol dulls the senses and over a long-term period destroys brain tissue. Yet we are sensory beings and we rely on our senses to perceive the world around us as well as to make sense of that world. Therefore alcohol in effect is destroying sensitivity to life; in other words, making drinkers stupid.

Civilisation is a recognition that one belongs to a collective. So if we look at ants, each colony is a unique civilisation in a similar way to us. As human beings we all share common traits, but our sense of civilisation depends on our language and upbringing.

Yasmeena Ali

Giving the finger to morality

This is a story that everyone should take note to to better understand how Islam functions, it’s cruel reality and implications for Islamic host countries. Born in Afghanistan during the Taliban regime and moved to the UK as a child aged 9, Yasmeena rebelled against the nonsense that ruled her life.  Yasmeena in her speech below gives  a synopsis of Islam and living as a Muslim inside ond outside an Islamic country.

What Yasmeena describes as common to the many thousands of people born Muslim and escaped when their sensibility and appreciation of life awakened. That is something that takes great courage as you can really turn their backs on their families and communities. But what is

Winston Churchill Notes

The Poisonous Religion of Islam

Winston Churchill is most famously renowned as Britain’s world war two prime minister and the driver of Hitlers defeat. But he is also renowned as disliking with some intensity anyone not British although perhaps here ‘dislike’ is a kindness.

On Islam, Churchill writes in The River War: An Historical Account of the Reconquest of the Soudan:

“How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries, improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and

What is Freedom?

We are prisoners of our own ignorance

Tumblr image

Many people dream of differing freedoms and at times go to great lengths to break free of what they think or believe binds them, but lets first ask what level of freedom is possible? To start with, we as conscious beings are physically confined to our bodies and their physical needs, our minds and consequently our terrestrial environment.

Given our physical restrictions, physical freedom or a freedom to move freely in the environment is constrained by a combination of mental and physical abilities along with political and financial freedoms. In other words you have to have the means and the capacity to move where you want. In other words you

The Rationality of Violence

Why are we so aggressive?

When we consider that war and violence have been a significant trait throughout modern history and as we live in a world at war today, it’s a question that everyone should consider at some point in their life.

From the perspective of yoga and the thoughtfulness that gave rise to Sanatana Dharma, knowing oneself as a part of life and a part of existence produces a human society and indeed a civilisation to know life and further.

This is about having a population of individuals who take what they absolutely from nature and do what must be done in terms of environmental protection and living harmoniously with each other.

It is from a position

Village Life

Work and Lifestyle

A boat was docked in a tiny Mexican fishing village. and a tourist complimented the local fishermen on the quality of their fish and… asked how long it took to catch them.

“Not very long” they answered in unison.

“Why didn’t you stay out longer and catch more?”

The fishermen explained that their small catches were sufficient to meet their needs and those of their families.

“But what do you do with the rest of your time?”

“We sleep late, fish a little, play with our children, and take siestas with our wives. In the evenings, we go into the village to see our friends, have a few drinks, play the guitar, and sing a few songs.

Painless Childbirth Through Yoga

Yoga Asana Series How to Achieve Painless Childbirth Through Yoga

To achieve painless, or “normal,” childbirth, Yoga offers exercises and postures which will foster healthful development of secreting organs, especially those located within the waist and pelvic zones, and of the muscular and nervous systems.

The Western fashion world demands that women have thin waists. Actually, a woman requires a larger waist because her liver, stomach, spleen, kidneys, pancreas and colon are in the waist zone, and are proportionately larger than these organs in the male. This is part of nature’s provision for motherhood. The fashionable small waist necessarily is accompanied by displaced stomach and bowels and perhaps by a dislocated liver and a “floating” kidney.

The health of

Lauren Southern

Why the fuss and is there justice?

Lauren Southern by all accounts is a Canadian woman with a voice, and she has gained a degree of traction in the sociopolitical sphere to the point where authorities are suddenly concerned about her. Her views are upsetting people yet those people are the namby-pamby who may be called neoliberals, who implicitly believe that multiculturalism works and the world has nothing to fear from Islam, a belief that is incredulous if you know anything of Islamic history.

Perhaps they don’t teach very much about this in schools and what they do teach is somehow glorified to give it a sense of normality although you wouldn’t want it to happen to you. The

Mother Theresa

Saint of fraud

Published on: 7 Sep 2016, updated 16 July 2018

Mother Teresa was a Catholic nun who many believe devoted her life to helping India’s poor and she was declared a saint in a canonization Mass held by Pope Francis in the Vatican on September 4 2016.

Because so many actually revere Mother Theresa, it can appear insensitive to fact-check her more odious pronouncements, but any journalist should check the facts and not just be a voice of the establishment as there’s more to this story.

Anjezë Gonxhe Bojaxhiu was born in August 26, 1910 in Skopje which was then part of Kosovo Vilayet in the Ottoman Empire. This was a volatile period and she lived in the shadow of the Mother Teresa
