Demeaning Women

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

The rotten heart of a superpower

Many of the values of western civilisation come about through competition and perceived basic needs for survival which stand in the way of higher thinking and natural evolution. If we look back over history we can see how greed and desire have shaped the world.

As several hunter gatherers people had to stick to the facts because life depended on those facts, but today the world is awash in ideas and attractive physical stuff or glamour. People are competing to have others buy into their ideas and have people buy their stuff so much so that institutions have been established to buy and sell

Alcohol

And the Tragedy of Western Civilisation

Alcohol has been a part of our civilisation for a very long time and it is generally thought that the discovery of alcohol was an accident because someone noticed that when grain is left in a wet state, fermentation occurs and alcohol is produced.

If we step back into antiquity, we know that bread and beer were currencies in some civilisations, but the alcohol content of the beer in ancient times was extremely low and it was virtually impossible to get drunk.

However over the last 10,000 years, the development of agriculture and the growth of civilisation began to give people leisure time in which they were free to experiment with different aspects

The Clash of Civilizations

The perpetual war between Islam and Christianity

Published on 23 May 2013, Abby Martin talks to Dr. John Trumpbour, research director at Harvard Law School’s labour and work life program about the theory of the clash of civilizations, the idea that a culture or war is inevitable and inherent in the relationship between the East and West; Hollywood’s homogenization of US culture and Harvard’s perpetuation of the ruling class.

What are the facts?

There’s no doubt that both Christianity and Islam are both in competition with each other. Both faiths are out to convert the world’s population to their understanding through conversion reflecting a basic insecurity. Both both faiths also seek economic domination as economics have always have walked hand

Politcs

The process of administration of humanity and world resources

“The penalty for refusing to participate in politics, is that you end up being governed by obnoxious or contemptible people.” Plato

As hunter gatherers our ancestors living in small groups developed a simple political system based on communal needs in relation to available food and shelter as the most important elements for their survival. Secondary needs were likely to regulate how people related to each other within the tribe and how they interacted with other tribes while religious rites would have been woven into the political fabric influencing how political decisions were made.

Nothing has changed much in modern history, there is a great ongoing political struggle for power
