"The best ever", I bought mine at Tesco’s – Educate your kids, and Government’s ‘get real’, or we will all f… off to Second Life www.secondlife.com Open University – explore – http://www.newscientist.com/
 
"The government is facing criticism over claims that it allows faith schools to refuse jobs or promotion to staff with different, or no, spiritual beliefs." http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/education/8359414.stm Ref, Amartya Sen ‘Power of the Guardian’s’ UK "Never has so much power been in the hands of so few". http://www.vexen.co.uk/religion/faithschools.html
 
"Money invested in protecting nature can bring huge financial returns, according to a major investigation into the costs and benefits of the natural world." http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/sci/tech/8357723.stm Rather like the ‘Credit Crunch’ and ‘Banking Crisis’, where they are not doing the right thing: ref, Keynes – throw money at the people / poor (those who will spend it – not, the hoarders and balance sheet adjusting of Banks) $1 spent now = $1.60 to the "real" economy now – far too embroiled in their own world’s, for any of the right, or even, any of the much better and profitable decisions that can be made and so easily. Ref, "DeAnne Julius, a former member of the Monetary Policy Committee, says there’s very little evidence that quantitative easing is providing any support for the "real" economy i.e. for industries other than banking." "A high risk strategy (BOE plays silly-buggers and with your money and it’s billions of £’s)!" http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/business/7924506.stm

When their is no ‘sense of justice’ surely revolution and change result, however slow it will occur? The European Union or War, it is up to the young people, and nobody is listening!

    • Waiting for the "Revolution" since the 1960’s – 1976 Frank Herbert ‘Dune’ – an immutable feature of history: ‘Governments if they endure, always tend increasingly towards aristocratic forms. No government in history has been known to evade this pattern. And as the aristocracy develops, government tends more and more to act exclusively in the interests of the ruling class – whether that class be hereditary royalty, oligarchs of financial empires, or entrenched bureaucracy.’

    • http://www.allgreatquotes.com/peace_quotes.shtml ‘If we are to teach real peace in this world, and if we are to carry on a real war against war, we shall have to begin with the children.’ Mahatma Gandhi. ‘We should take care, in inculcating patriotism into our boys and girls, that is a patriotism above the narrow sentiment which usually stops at one’s country, and thus inspires jealousy and enmity in dealing with others… Our patriotism should be of the wider, nobler kind which recognises justice and reasonableness in the claims of others and which lead our country into comradeship with…the other nations of the world. The first step to this end is to develop peace and goodwill within our borders, by training our youth of both sexes to its practice as their habit of life, so that the jealousies of town against town, class against class and sect against sect no longer exist; and then to extend this good feeling beyond our frontiers towards our neighbours.’ Robert Baden-Powell

    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! https://charleslizzy.com/2011/08/06/independent-schools-inspectorate-isi-marketing-spirituality-buzzword-or-maybe-even-for-you-to-shiver-at-the-something/ 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 http://www.bbcshop.com/science+nature/the-ascent-of-man/invt/9781849901154/ 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.
