BBC News – Britons call for troop withdrawal

And –!A18BF3FCC5E126A2!2028.entry

We would be much more use in Africa (or many other parts of the world) – save more peoples lives, educate more people and so on…, but we are not even their, for our old kith and kin! 

What we should be doing; other than promoting ‘peace, love, and fairness, (throughout the world, we are very good at this, and if we were only given ‘half a chance’) is undoing some of the things that most of the ’50 People Who Have Buggered Up Britain’ – have done, and adding a few other people, and the things that they have done, so appallingly, to our country in the past!

With all the money wasted (the costs of war and lives, on all sides, and so on…) on our armed forces and those ancillary industries – we could have rebuilt and improved most of our modern infrastructure (tackled global warming) and everyone would be on full employment (according to any individual preferences). What a mess awaits us now and in the future for the next generation, who will have to live in "Primitive Britain"! Maybe, without a house – the first act of civilization (the other two being the manufacture of tools and the making of fire). The government, being incompetent, can’t even supply or guarantee this or control a massive fraud perpetrated in our ‘money markets’ (unregulated CDS’s) and in our banking system, also with our our pensions – bailing out them – before you. "It is fortunate for the Bankers that we are not in the days of the French Revolution, when the greater mass of people had scythes and pitchforks" – a Bloomberg commentator has just reported! 

UK ‘blackouts warning’

Freud – He considers the dwelling house to be the substitute for the mothers womb, "the first lodging, for which in all likelihood man still longs (esp, ‘first time home buyers’), and in which he was safe and felt at ease" (Anthropology – study of ‘Prehistory and Primitive Man’).

‘Entrenched’ (Islamic) ‘Tribal/Fundamentalism’

In the ‘childhood of the intellect’ – ‘The Long Childhood’ J.Bronowski (possibly, one of the most important DVD/Video’s that anyone could possibly see and understand) 

"Philosophy is the childhood of the intellect, and a culture that tries to skip it will never grow up."

Thomas Nagel

"It is important that students bring a certain ragamuffin, barefoot, irreverence to their studies; they are not here to worship what is known, but to question it." – J. Bronowski, The Ascent of Man. Big Brains – 1.4 million years ago

About luckyme0

My First family, second marriage, bringing up my 18-year-old twins, boy, and girl. I am a third generation Humanist, who has some old handwritten information and notes; collected over many years. Someone may find the articles interesting, or helpful. They could bring back a little ‘reality’, after being ‘shocked’ and ‘brainwashed’, by some malicious group, or institution (REBT Therapy). People should know better, than to do this, to our very young, and the ‘obviously’ vulnerable! Go to easily accessible, non-superstitious knowledge that is not charlatanism! The blog has given me an incentive to order my thoughts, learn, and read up again, after a few non-thinking years of (very silly) imagination and passion. Why not, get your own key to a ‘door’, customise it to suit you, and it can be, all of your very own! Don’t believe, or be led by someone else’s; inherited, stupid, and a very likely (past, and not of today’s) ‘totally preposterous reality’s’. Only some interest in the ‘really big questions’, keeps life above the level of a farce, and very little else! KEEP THINKING! Some of the posts may need some correcting. Interests: REBT Counselling, Atheism, Secularism, Humanism, Psychology, Reading, Popular Science, School Ethos, Philosophy, History, Family, Parenting, Psychology, Horse Riding, Sailing, Rescue Boat Driver, Skiing (Teppichswinger), TV Documentaries, Motorbike Cross Country Riding, Volunteer Sports Stewarding, Writing, Primitive Man, Pre-history, Social Anthropology, British Humanist Association, BHA, Meaning of Life, The Big Questions, Where am I, What am I, Why am I, Hippie Love, Knowledge, Education, Globalisation. Favorite quote: “The world belongs to those who, at least to some degree, have figured it out.” Carl Sagan, ‘The Demon Haunted World’, ‘Contact’, and other famous books DVD ‘Cosmos’. The warning of another and horrendous, “Age of Superstition”. “Isn’t there something deeply absurd in the presumption that children ought to inherit beliefs from their parents. It can be deeply damaging, even lethally divisive. A ‘them’, with an ‘against us’, mentality” – Professor Richard Dawkins. “The will to believe is stronger than mere reason in the vast majority of people” – Dr J.Brown, Army Psychologist of the 1960′s. Humans will believe in almost anything, in fact, they seek it! Why? “98% of us, trained to be just good consumers, let’s train our children to be the 2% who have their very own creativity and discernment”; quote by a famous surreal artist. “The lack of reason brings forth monsters”. “Global interconnectedness is lethal against mass religion, nationalism, racism, and other destructive memeplexes. Let us connect everybody they hate it in restrictive regimes”; from the ‘meme learning group’, Richard Brodie’s book, ‘Virus Of The Mind’ (Richard Brodie a designer for ‘Microsoft Word’). Following on, J.Bronowski, and ‘The Ascent Of Man’ TV series, and a book with the last DVD in this series, ‘The Long Childhood’ being especially revealing. ‘Prehistory’ and the ‘Making of the Human Mind’ by Colin Renfrew, with P.Wilson’s, ‘The Domestication of the Human Species’, and Nigel Spivey’s, TV series and book, ‘How Art Made The World’, offers some further explanations.
