Human society under urgent threat from loss of Earth’s natural life
Joe Biden’s non-apology to Anita Hill casts long shadow over 2020 run
How willing these idiotic primary voters are to hand over power to this childish fool, Joe Biden. Even after this much exposure his failures and weaknesses keep getting excused and ignored. Well, there really is no use feeling sorry for what people choose to inflict upon themselves, their poor, hapless selves, over and over again. With Trump’s election there seems no logical end to the degree of pain the suffering and ignorant are willing to inflict upon themselves.
But really the blame falls on the socioeconomic system and its philosophy or really the utter lack thereof that allows a democratic electorate to become so ignorant as to their own best interests and how to properly govern themselves as human beings or as a nation.

Speaking your voice and reaching out to your elected representatives seemingly could not be any easier than it is right now. Resistbot is a wonderful tool that allows you to painlessly communicate your thoughts, wishes, complaints, congratulations, anything you care to impart, to your elected representatives as well as other institutions, and it also keeps you informed of other important things you might want to know about as a responsible, conscientious citizen of the United States of America.
What a filthy piece of work this was.
I will be exhaustively annotating and updating this post going forward as it seems so important and pregnant with relevance and wisdom for our current situation and likely that for years to come.
Religious belief appears to have negative influence on children’s altruism and judgments of others’ actions even as parents see them as ‘more empathetic’

Six Reasons Why Using Mythology in Medicine is Important
Melanie is wonderful!! 🙂
I think we’ve come to the point where any reasonable person would concede that what we’re doing isn’t working. There necessarily comes a time when there is no more time left to conduct studies; to have discussions; to debate trivialities into infinity; to convince or educate the ignorant and shallow and easily satisfied and incurious; to compromise yet further; to reach across the aisle. That time is upon us. It’s time to shift gears now. This is a binary change. On or off. Forward or backward. Thrive or wither.
There is no middle.
There is no half gear. Do you see a 1 1/2 gear on your car’s stick shift? You pick a direction and you follow it. You do not simultaneously follow one direction and another or else you will split yourself in two. Any idiot can see that.
We’ve so far gathered much information throughout our human history about ways human beings can thrive on this planet. We have way more information than is necessary to solve all of our problems! Do you understand that? However we have chosen not to act upon that information and pursue courses of action that truly allow us to thrive as a species and to thrive as a planet. Instead we have chosen to follow the moving target, the rabbit on the post, watch the same old show over and over again, tell the same old joke, perform the same old tradition. Instead of using what we’ve learned in order to move forward and better ourselves and our society and our circumstances and our understanding of the universe we have chosen instead to take all of that, fancy merely the shiny bits, sit on the couch, eat potato chips and watch TV and get fat and drunk and stupid and drive bigger and bigger trucks. Our coastlines are not collectively-owned celebrations of nature’s beauty and places to reflect and enjoy but staging areas for pushing more metal and plastic and oil and waste into the oceans, making them merely extensions of our mismanaged, exploitative, terrestrial roadways.
Sigh. It’s late and I’m tired so I’m going to go home. I’ll write more later maybe. 🙂👍💜✌️🌍🌌🦄🌈👽🛸
If you donate money to me I’ll have more time and energy to think about and write about the solutions to all of these problems I’m identifying and outlining all over the place. If you find it too hard to figure out how to donate money to me let me know and I will improve the system. Thank you for your support and your eyeballs and your mind and your heart! 🙂 If we work together we can turn this situation upside down and make it better.
Yeah. Take a person who is obviously in need of help and do what? Put her in jail? Good. Solves that problem!
This society deserves to burn to the ground. I’m afraid there are no fixes. We need a fresh start.
Just released! Listen to it here first! 👍
He’s very forthcoming and knowledgeable. Scott Ritter shares his heartbreaking disillusionment surrounding the apathy and indifference our (in my words) commercial, capitalist, hyper-American, mainstream media, hegemonic society has shown when presented with truth and evidence of the USA’s actual posture toward the people of this Earth, not the benign fantasy that we imagine when we stand and imbecilicly ape each other and say the stupid national anthem together.
