Paths for freedom and progress
   
 
   
“Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what they are going to have for lunch.” (Benjamin Franklin)                        The human race with technology is just like an alcoholic with a bottle of vodka (Ted Kaczynski)                        Remember, democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts and murders itself. There was never a democracy yet that didn´t commit suicide. John Adams, USA President, 1797-1801                        "The system makes an individual's life easier for him in innumerable ways, but in doing so it deprives him of control over his own fate."(Ted Kaczinsky)                        "Just don´t waste" (Sir David Attenborough)                        Western democracy is a gas. Useful for blowing up multicolored balloons (Nilsson)                        “By continuing the process of inflation governments can confiscate secretly and unobserved an important part of the wealth of their citizens.”(Keynes)                        Patience is bitter, but its fruit is sweet. ( Jean Jaques Rousseau )                        Man needs to work and fight in the Nature, not against it. (Thomas Ulf Nilsson)                        I prefer liberty with danger than peace with slavery. ( Jean Jaques Rousseau )                        The intellectual, tweed-wearing middle-class socialist didn't like the poor; they just hated the rich (Orwell)                        We swallow greedily any lie that flatters us, but we sip only little by little at a truth we find bitter. Denis Diderot                        Marxism and capitalism are equal. Both explore productive and creative men for the benefit of parasites. Thomas Nilsson.                        Useless laws weaken the necessary laws.(Montesquieu)                          Stilles wasser sind tief. (Still waters run deep). Friedrich Ludwig Schröder                         Happiness is nothing more than good health and a bad memory.Albert Schweitzer                         Love is when you desire happiness of the others. Unconditional, without expecting anything in return. Buddha                        If we only wanted to be happy, it would be easy; but we want to be happier than other people, and that is almost always difficult, since we think them happier than they are. (Montesquieu)                         About true liberty: Abraham Lincoln may have freed all men, but Sam Colt made them equal.                        Die meisten Menschen brauchen mehr Liebe, als sie verdienen (Most people need more love than they deserve) Marie Freifrau von Ebner-Eschenbach                         You should neither judge, nor forgive. Leave such matters to the Destiny. Thomas Nilsson                         An injustice to one is a threat made to all. (Montesquieu)                         BOYCOTT BRAZIL: http://boycott-brazil4.webnode.com/why-boycott-brazil2/                         If you think you are too small to make a difference, try sleeping with a mosquito. (Dalai Lama XIV)                         Christian theology is the grandmother of Bolshevism. Oswald Spengler.

09/11/2021 - What is being a human really about ?

Has man created civilization to give himself security? Security for what? For boredom? Most human beings need a certain amount of challenge, of external stimulus, to stop them from sinking into the blank stare and blank consciousness of the idiot.” (Colin Wilson, New Pathways in Psychology)


For most of human history leisure was a rare luxury. Toiling from dawn to dusk just to survive was the lot of almost all men, women and children up until a few hundred years ago. With the onset of the Second Industrial Revolution in the late 19th century and the rapid intensification of the division of labor that accompanied it, there occurred a “Leisure Revolution”. Not only did this period of rapid industrial...

 
09/11/2021 - The useless external opinion

Most people care too much about what other people think and that can even damage the psychological health. We all love ourselves more than other people, but care more about their opinion than our own. 


In the modern World a great emphasis is placed on the attainment of social validation and on looking good in the eyes of others. That is creating a population of men and women who are stunted in their development. Social validation is derived primarily from one thing – success in the external world, or at least the appearance of it. Our job title, our material possessions, the size of our bank account, our physical looks and fashion choices, the status of the people we associate with, such are the...

 
07/11/2021 - ALL DEPENDS ON FICTION

Homo sapiens rules the world because it is the only being that can believe in fiction - things that exist purely in its own imagination, such as gods, states, money and human rights. Or, quoting Buddhism: All is fiction!


Analyzing parts of this original Buddhist vision, Harari goes on to retell the history of our species. Seventy thousand years ago, there were at least six different human species on earth. They were insignificant, like animals, whose ecological impact is easily recovered by Nature. Today, there is only one human species left: Us. Homo sapiens. And we think we rule this planet.


Through our entire human history, from its evolutionary roots to the age...

 
12/10/2021 - Shared view of happiness

Both the philosophy of Buddhism and the religion of Islam have a common view of happiness: You will never be happy by earthly pleasure.


Islam: Those things which are giving you temporary pleasure, those are the very things that will bring about sadness and hurt to your heart, because you have given your heart in the wrong course. You donated your heart to something material, it became more important to you than Allah. That is why the struggle. So make Allah the most important in your life.

07/10/2021 - Isolation – a tool for dominance

Pavlov discovered that the conditioned reflex could be developed most easily in a quiet laboratory with a minimum of disturbing stimuli. Every trainer of animals knows this from his own experience; isolation and the patient repetition of stimuli are required to tame wild animals. . . .The totalitarians have followed this rule. They know that they can condition their political victims most quickly if they are kept in isolation.
