Good men don’t #change the world. They might be #nice to talk with and women might like them for a short period of time or put them in the friend zone. But the men who change the world are the ones who are #capable. So, when I think about that word, capability, and I think about dangerous, I think those two things go hand in hand. If you want to be a capable man, capable of #providing, #protecting and #providing, which is our motto, and not just motto but our way of life, then you need to be #willing and #able, willing and able to be dangerous in the right set of circumstances.

Belarus - A U.S. Sponsored Color Revolution Is Underway


#Belarus - A #US #Sponsored #Color #Revolution Is #Underway #politics #regime #change #NATO

"U.S engineered attempts to overthrow a foreign government by stirring civil arrests are usually named after a #color or, at times, a #flower. Thus we had an " #rose #revolution" in #Georgia, a " #green #movement" in #Iran and an " #orange revolution" in the #Ukraine.

But now the #CIA and its assortment of supporting organizations seems to have run out of color choices. How else can one explain that their latest attempt in Belarus is called a " #slipper revolution"."

One great secret of the art of politics all over the world is never to push evil or beneficial measures to that point where resistance commences on the part of the governed.

Progress, far from consisting in change, depends on retentiveness. When change is absolute there remains no being to improve and no direction is set for possible improvement: and when experience is not retained, as among savages, infancy is perpetual. Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.
George Santayana (1863-1952) Spanish-American poet and philosopher [Jorge Agustín Nicolás Ruíz de Santayana y Borrás]
The Life of Reason: The Phases of Human Progress, Vol. I, “Reason in Common Sense,” ch. 12 (1905-1906)

Fur das Deutsche: ubersetzen unten White lotus was on an episode of "sacred weeds". I can tell you from experience that it's really hard to find GOOD lotus products ( Blue lotus, white, pink ) but when you do, it actually does work. The problem is most vendors don't source REAL product, and it gets a bad reputation. It's out there though! Just like there's good Kava out there and some bunk kratom. Just because one batch isn't good doesn't mean they all are. Anyway this stuff was used in WWII and has been studied by phytochemist on an epic scale. They used to sell pure nuciferine online ( big pharma ) and then turn around and lie to us. There is a movement in the USA to suppress herbal ism and truth. We need to take after our German friends and embrace the science and applications of HERBAL MEDICINE REAL MEDICINE! https://botanicalguides.com/White-Lotus-Nymphaea-Ampla.html #herbs #...

Freeman John Dyson... R.I.P., the Free Man

15 December 1923 – 28 February 2020

Freeman John Dyson was an English-born American theoretical physicist and mathematician known for his work in quantum electrodynamics, solid-state physics, astronomy and nuclear engineering. He was professor emeritus in the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, a member of the Board of Visitors of Ralston College and a member of the Board of Sponsors of the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists.

Dyson originated several concepts that bear his name, such as Dyson's transform, a fundamental technique in additive number theory, which he developed as part of his proof of Mann's theorem; the Dyson tree, a hypothetical genetically-engineered plant capable of growing in a comet; the Dyson series, a perturbative series where each term is represented by Feynman diagrams; the Dyson sphere, a thought experiment that attempts to explai

If life becomes hard to bear we think of a change in our circumstances. But the most important and effective change, a change in our own attitude, hardly even occurs to us, and the resolution to take such a step is very difficult for us.
Ludwig Wittgenstein (1889-1951) Austrian-English philosopher
Culture and Value, 1946 (1977) [tr. Winch (1980)]

Ciclovida Lifecycle


This feature-length documentary pedals alongside a group of small farmers from Brazil who bicycle over 6,000 miles across the South American continent. They use the year of travel to exchange natural seeds, songs, and ideas about new ways of relating to the land. Moving stories from landless peasants, indigenous communities, and small farmers inform the travelers and viewers, expanding their understanding of the struggle to survive in the face of global agribusiness incursion and the takeover of monocrops for making biofuel.

This is no ordinary time in the history of the world and in the history of our nation, of any nation, and in the history of the people of the world. We are living in an extraordinary time of change in the world around us, and that means our lives are changing in ways we simply have never seen before. How can we embrace this change in a healthy way? How can we find the resilience in our personal lives and in our communities to thrive in a healthy way in a time of extremes?

Gregg Braden discusses the six perennial questions of life:

1) What is the origin of life?

2) What is the origin of human life?

3) What is our relationship to our body? Do we have the ability to influence our bodies?

4) What is our relationship to the world beyond our bodies? Are we separate from or connected?

5) What is our relationship to the past? Are we at a pinnacle of sophistication, or are we living in a cyclic experience of civilizations?

Morales' cancellation of the ACISA deal opened the door to either a renegotiation of the agreement with terms delivering more of the profits to the area's population or the outright nationalization of the Bolivian lithium extraction industry.

Would you like to reduce your impact on Earth?


Website http://impact.babetteporcelijn.com/en/#/ is really good if you would like to learn how many Earths would we need if everybody lived your lifestyle. Unfortunately, it does not help much if you also interested in how could you effectively reduce your impact.

That is why I filled the survey plenty of times to extract the ratios the website calculates with. Here are they scaled to 0.1 Earths make them easier to compare:

Roughly 0.1 Earths would be required if everyone of us would do any of the following.
buying new cloths: 2 items/month
spending on things: 14 euros/month
eating meat: 170 grams/week
eating cheese: 1 600 grams/week
eating/drinking other dairy products: 1.3 liters/week
