Here at the Art of #Manliness, we haven’t been #shy about the fact that we’re big #proponents of #marriage. We certainly don’t advocate that #men rush into #marriage willy nilly, whether they’re ready or not. That would be seriously #unwise. But once your find your true #love and you’re sure she’s the one, there’s no reason to delay your #nuptials. Why? Marriage offers truly significant #benefits that cannot be found outside of it. Here are 6 reasons you should #grow up, #man-up, and stop being #scared of walking down the aisle...

The Case for Marriage

Inebriating mint isnt' mint at all. It's not laced but is a plant used as a drug in certain areas of the world. You used to be able to buy it in the USA but shops that sold it were illegally hunted down by corrupt officials in the American government. They illegally sabotaged in businesses and used the bankers power to do so as well. They belong in jail. It's legal though and if anyone knows where to find it please contact me. I've put a page up on it as an educational piece. thanks again for my followers and please share and subscribe to my newsletter! https://botanicalguides.com/inebriatingmint.html #herbs #plants #drugs #ethnobotanicals #entheogens #psychoactive #pharmacology #phytochemistry #phytochemicals #owo #usa #freedom #health #happiness
 
Buying less is better than buying ‘green’—for the planet and your happiness
https://phys.org/news/2019-10-greenfor-planet-happiness.html
There is evidence that there are 'green materialists. If you are able to buy environmentally friendly products, you can still live your materialist values. You’re acquiring new things, and that fits into our mainstream consumption pattern in our consumer culture, whereas reduced consumption is more novel and probably more important from a sustainability perspective.

#Advertising Makes Us Unhappy


source: https://hbr.org/2020/01/advertising-makes-us-unhappy
The University of Warwick’s Andrew Oswald and his team compared survey data on the life satisfaction of more than 900,000 citizens of 27 European countries from 1980 to 2011 with data on annual advertising spending in those nations over the same period. The researchers found an inverse connection between the two. The higher a country’s ad spend was in one year, the less satisfied its citizens were a year or two later. Their conclusion: Advertising makes us unhappy.

Facebook is not good for you...


https://www.vice.com/en_us/article/z3beea/facebook-moderators-lawsuit-ptsd-trauma-tracking-bathroom-breaks

"Despite Facebook’s push for secrecy, Zaicev is now among dozens of current and former moderators who have contacted Coleman Legal Partners in Dublin about bringing legal action against the company for failing to provide a safe work environment. Unlike a recent class action case in the U.S., each moderator has to file a separate case in Ireland.

“The happiest people are the people who are away from Facebook. The more unhappy you are in life, the more you are going to spend on Facebook,” one fomer moderator who is preparing a legal action against Facebook told VICE News. “And we spent the whole fricking day on Facebook. We can probably guess that it is not good for you.”"

Advertising looks shiny but deals in misery. To sell something you have to make people dissatisfied with what they already have - and as the market saturates and the goal becomes to sell people things they don't even need the influence has to intensify. And it does:
Our analysis shows that if you doubled advertising spending, it would result in a 3% drop in life satisfaction. That’s about half the drop in life satisfaction you’d see in a person who had gotten divorced...

“Christmas a humbug, uncle!” said Scrooge’s nephew. “You don’t mean that, I am sure.”

“I do,” said Scrooge. “Merry Christmas! What right have you to be merry? What reason have you to be merry? You’re poor enough.”

“Come, then,” returned the nephew gaily. “What right have you to be dismal? What reason have you to be morose? You’re rich enough.”

Scrooge having no better answer ready on the spur of the moment, said “Bah!” again; and followed it up with “Humbug.”
Charles Dickens (1812-1870) English writer and social critic
A Christmas Carol, ch. 1 (1843)

Converted Latter-day Saints believe that the #family proclamation, issued nearly a quarter century ago and now translated into scores of languages, is the Lord’s reemphasis of the gospel #truths we need to sustain us through current challenges to the family.

The family proclamation begins by declaring “that #marriage between a #man and a #woman is ordained of #God and that the family is central to the #Creator’s plan for the eternal destiny of His children.” It also affirms that “ #

There it is: the age old, some might say "eternal", war between safety ("survival") and freedom ("living").
  • Surviving, in this Wall-E video clip, means you're alive and "safe", but with no zest, no spice, no feeling, no happiness, no troubles, no pain, no joy.
  • Living, in the same clip, means freedom to experience risk, danger, happiness, trouble, joy, growth, sadness, creativity, zest, etc.
NWO, big government, local police, etc., claim they want to ensure your safety
Libertarians, small limited government proponents, "conservatives", constitutionalists, etc. want to protect your liberty.

which one do you choose?

A Bold Peace


Over 60 years ago, Costa Rica became one of the only nations in the world to disband their military and to redirect national resources towards #education, health, and the #environment. Since then, Costa Rica has earned the number one spot in the Happy Planet Index, a ranking of countries based on measures of environmental protection and the happiness and health of its citizens. And the World Database of Happiness, with data on 149 nations compiled by a Dutch sociologist, lists Costa Rica as number one in self-reported happiness and nu... Show more...

blog will go offline

this site will go offline in 2-3 day (capitalism going down, .org domains too expensive, let’s hope it does not end mankind with it)

this is the difference between “the internet” and books.

books need money during production… but afterwards their maintenance is very low cost (a shelf where the rain can not hit it)

“the internet” aka a blog is quiet low cost in production (click click finished) but the maintenance is expensive (domain costs, security updates, electricity servers costs etc.)

maybe one day “the internet” can run on 100% renewable energy at very low cost and everyone get’s a free domain name to start with to share one’s knowledge.

because this is the big hope with “the internet” that people share their knowledge and learn from each other.

but right now we are not there yet.

wish you all a happy life!

matthieuricard - banality of good

“should not forget the “banality of good”, the fact that the majority of the time, the majority of the seven billion human beings behave decently towards each other.

Apart from the climate disasters that we are blindly heading for, the world is much better in many ways. Physical violence, for example, has steadily declined over the centuries.

We are now about a hundred times less likely than in the 14th century to die as a result of the violence caused by our fellow human beings (murder, war, etc.).

The number of human beings living below the poverty line has risen from 1.5 billion to 750 million in 20 years.

All of this is due to the fact that we take more care of others and are more concerned about their fate.

Benevolence and altruistic love are the best way to accomplish the double good of others and of oneself.”

Exodus 20


The Ten Commandments
1 And God spoke all these words, saying,
2 "I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery.
3 "You shall have no other gods before me.
4 "You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.
5 You shall not bow down to them or serve them, for I the LORD your God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and the fourth generation of those who hate me,
6 but showing steadfast love to thousands of those who love me and keep my commandments.
7 "You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain, for the LORD will not hold him guiltless who takes his name in vain.
8 "Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.
9 Six days you shall labor, and do all your work,

The Washington Post offers a very narrow definition of sex

The continued and implied assumptions of this Washington Post piece are that sex is necessarily between people and is good in the absolute. However, these assumptions critically don't include any notion of consent nor sexual happiness.

How many of the reported sexless people truly are sexually unhappy/frustrated? I've seen #pornography availability being "blamed" for the rise of sexless young people, but what if pornography is enough for some people? Instead of being coerced into necessarily shallow relationships they don't need just to satisfy their sexual desires?

Luke 24


The Resurrection
1 But on the first day of the week, at early dawn, they went to the tomb, taking the spices they had prepared.
2 And they found the stone rolled away from the tomb,
3 but when they went in they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus.
4 While they were perplexed about this, behold, two men stood by them in dazzling apparel.
5 And as they were frightened and bowed their faces to the ground, the men said to them, "Why do you seek the living among the dead?
6 He is not here, but has risen. Remember how he told you, while he was still in Galilee,
7 that the Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men and be crucified and on the third day rise."
8 And they remembered his words,
9 and returning from the tomb they told all these things to the eleven and to all the rest.
10 Now it was Mary Magdalene and Joanna and Mary the mother of James and the other women with them who told these things to the apostles,
11 but these words seemed to them an idle tale, and they did not believe them.

the nature of man(kind) - back to feudalism middle ages

Image/photo

a pretty big deal of time philosopher’s minds – and i am no exceptions – circle around the problem of: what is man? what is the natural nature of man?

is mankind really as fucked up as it seems?

or is it just what capitalism (the operating system of society in 99% of the world) made it?

almost always rewarding dark traits and thus brings about the worst in people?

you can always say: even a fucked up system is better than the stone age.

Odette Toulemonde


Neophyte director Eric-Emmanuel Schmitt's French-language romantic comedy Odette Toulemonde concerns the unlikeliest of relationships that develops between two Parisians. The title character (Catherine Frot) is a forty-year-old saleswoman, saddled with two children (an adolescent daughter and a hairdresser son), who spends her days hawking cosmetics from behind the counter of a Parisian department store. Odette has absolutely no reason to feel limitless joy or to retain a bright, positive outlook on life, but experiences both - thanks in no small part to the novels of her favorite author, Balthazar Balsan (Albert Dupontel). Meanwhile, Balsan ostensibly has everything - money, fame, success - and yet feels unbridled emptiness inside. These two lives suddenly intersect and complement each other in fantastic and unexpected ways. Nicolas Buysse, Jacques Weber, Nina Drecq and Fabrice Murgia co-star; Schmitt authored the original script.

Top five regrets of the dying

Image/photo

1. I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me.

“This was the most common regret of all. When people realize that their life is almost over and look back clearly on it, it is easy to see how many dreams have gone unfulfilled. Most people had not honoured even a half of their dreams and had to die knowing that it was due to choices they had made, or not made. Health brings a freedom very few realize, until they no longer have it.”

2. I wish I hadn’t worked so hard.
