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

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

Rembering Vlad Dracula

And his responsiveness to Muslim invasions

Is there any relevance to this historical figure, a man who has been vilified across the world as a monster, a tyrant, a bloodthirsty psychopath and of course a vampire in the realm of popular entertainment?

One must realise that troubled times breed men and women who act ‘abnormally’ to deal with the various shapes of adversity. What the teenage Vlad Țepeș (the second son of Vlad Dracul, who became the ruler of Wallachia in 1436) was dealing with were the divisions of a newly Christianised Europe and rule by fear. As Christianity took root, society became more pleasantly capitalist for some with a more clearly defined class structure or cast

Can Peace Be Imposed?

Can we impose peace via any religion or man made ideology’s?

May all beings everywhere plagued with sufferings of body and mind quickly be freed from their illnesses. May those frightened cease to be afraid, and may those bound be free. May the powerless find power, and may people think of befriending one another. May those who find themselves in trackless, fearful wilderness– the children, the aged, the unprotected– be guarded by beneficent celestial’s, and may they swiftly attain the wisdom of Liberation or Buddhahood.

Firstly, who are we?

We call ourselves human beings and we see ourselves as the dominant species in this environment. We have demonstrated the ability to dominate life on this planet by

Preparing for Worlds End

Can we do anything right?

Make love – not war

If there was any benevolent God has spoken of within the world’s religions, you would think that it, him or her would have stepped in to tell people how to solve their problems. But since people have believed in God, there has never been any evidence of any God and it seems clear that we have been left to our own devices.

As the global conflict escalates, more and more people are being confined to their homes because it is not safe to go out at night, and even in relatively peaceful countries, anxieties and frustrations are growing.

While there are simple solutions to fix the financial crisis

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

Steps to Peace

Steps to Peace

“Everyone loves to talk about calmness and peace, whether in a family, national, or international context, but without inner peace how can we make real peace?” HHDL

“The modern war of terror will not end until there is social justice and equity for all as poverty and injustice breeds violence.” LS

World peace through hatred and force is impossible as hatred be-gets hatred and force creates more hatred as we see in many places. Where ever we are, who ever we are, we must stop and think not about the burdens we carry, not about the score, we must consider the possibility that peace in possible and despite self doubt, that you
