BBC NEWS | Politics | Senior Tory arrested over leaks. MP Damien Green.

"I may sound strangely medieval, but once the police can interfere with Parliament, I tell you, you are into a police state". Tony Benn. 

"The total lack of proportion in the whole exercise gives it a weird atmosphere of unreality, as though one had strayed into a science fiction narrative and landed on a planet, in which only fear and greed were institutionalised at a global level. A planet inhabited and ruled by anthropoids with only fossilized and vestigial intelligence and a hideous preoccupation with death". ‘The Home of Man’ Barbara Ward.

A twisted and deep ‘state of denial’ or a ‘seriously introverted, media driven, mad mentality,’ in the UK’s Parliament and its Government (most governments around the world in 2008) – Iceland, Banking and Banks Collapsing – Credit Crunch – Sub-prime Mortgage Collapse, Vast wealth hoarded in gold and Sovereign Funds, Credit Default Swaps (CDS), "Institutional Greed" – poor people (unnecessarily)  turned out of their homes, Peak Oil and Crash, so on…And on… Worldwide – 100 million more children undernourished globally, one half of all Asian children will grow up illiterate, child slavery and child soldiers, more felling of forests due to ‘commodity price unbalance’ and lack of any ‘worldwide good government’, so on…And on… Pathetic or downright dangerous! (I think pathetic, and with the ‘pathetic people in power’ at present. Maybe, dare I say it, but especially, our young people who should be…DEMANDING CHANGE. Ref, Barack Obama USA) . 

"I see no radiant tomorrows" Vaclav Havel. "The Tories say they understand counter-terrorism officers were involved in searches of his home and offices". Amazon Deforestation

Freedom is a word rather like time, everyone thinks that they know what it means, but cannot define it. The foundation of freedom is knowledge and without knowledge no man can be free. That is why religious and secular dictators throughout history have burned and censored books, closed universities, imprisoned professors and do so in some parts of the world today. Freedom is the ability to choose courses of action and to make decisions that are based on an objective knowledge of the world. Without such knowledge primitive subjective feelings, values, and goals, remain the primary determinants of human action.

Knowing this the unscrupulous manipulate the credulous.
True freedom is frightening to many, because it necessitates the individual breaking out of the cocoon of half-truths, ignorance, and ready-made opinions, in which most of humankind is happily and comfortably imprisoned. No man can be free until he seeks objective answers to three questions, namely: "Where am I"? What am I"? Why am I"? Again, and again –

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.
