    What Does School Really Teach Us

    1. Truth comes from authority. 2. Intelligence is the ability to remember and repeat. 3. Accurate memory and repetition are rewarded. 4. Non-compliance is punished. 5. Conform: intellectually and socially. Source: What Does School Really Teach Children? It, [also], teaches us: 1. [T]o be modern slaves of the corporate world[.] 2. [T]o learn things by rote memory[.] 3. [T]o forget a majority of what you’ve learned once you’re done an exam[ ](making the entire process a waste)[.] 4. [T]hat authority will always side with each other[.] 5. [T]o dislike the subjects we would normally have an interest in[.] 6.

    Politics As Usual: “And The [Scum] Shall Inherit The Earth”

    Scum vs. Scum The worst beings, that humans have to offer, rise to the top, like scum in polluted waters. Nothing changes, except the outer forms of human life. The essence of humanity, in general, is to dominate, possess and exploit, to the very bitter end, everything and anything, on this planet. Everything is for sale, or has its price; absolutely everything and anything can be bought. Anything wretched and debauched is possible, as long as humanity continues its miserable existence here. This is the essence of the history of this species! History repeats itself over and over and over again. When the last tree is felled and the last potable water is polluted along with the filth, the rot and the absolute corruption of everything good on this tiny, tiny little speck of, currently, unimportant dust in the cosmic ocean of outer space, humanity will, finally, destroy itself and damage Mother Nature extensively, probably, beyond repair for a very, very, very long time. Then, and, maybe, only then, the planet will have a few billion years of real growth, not the growth as idealized at the financial brothel on Wall Street.It’s no wonder, and no surprise, that any decent,…

    The Truth About This World

    The truth about this world is that it will deceive you, constantly. Know reality and the facts. Be not deceived, beyond reality and the facts. Forget this world, its lies and its empty promises, for it will always, always, disappoint and deceive you. Do the best you can do, to be and find true love. True love, not just sex, meaning, love that will fill the huge vacuum within. Love that will sustain, will grow, and will be with you and you with love until whenever. Hopefully, it will be for a very long time. The only solution, to this world and its mockery, however, is to ignore it as much as that is possible. Do what you can to survive with or without love, without being like the world, without deceiving, without hurting, without killing and, especially, without causing any pain as this world loves to do. For as you do the opposite of what the world is and does, it will be your only escape, eventually, from its illusion. Be kind, be patient but know; never believe anyone or any thing outside of your own true Self!! Let actions speak louder than mere words then you can believe…

    The World Is In Turmoil As Usual

    What Worries The World? Why can’t the world grow up, mature and blossom into a beautiful world, a beautiful planet? What is preventing the world from maturing into a higher state of being? Will it always be this way? Is the world committing mass suicide as we speak? It certainly seems so. The trends toward world fascism and, literally, technological dominance over every aspect of our lives, forebodes a darker future more and more. Brazil will elect a new leader, perhaps a dictator, perhaps a military coup will occur, perhaps both possibilities will join forces in order to establish order. But, will this new order be really beneficial? How many will die in this new “order”? Only time will tell now. In two days we will know if Brazil’s future is condemned to have more and more chaos and destruction. It seems it is the only way Brazil knows how to be. It’s not only that the U.S. died, at the beginning of this century, now, maybe, it will be Brazil, too. Change is needed but do we Brazilians need the ugly change that has occurred in the U.S., too? Perhaps, now, that same change is coming to Brazil. I…
