The Color Photos of the Atrocities

“A good life requires the ability to rise above the circumstances of everyday practical considerations. The ability to be something within the self, separate and apart from success or failure in any particular human undertaking. The ability to add psychological resources as the result of life experiences makes it possible to convert success or failure into a psychic event. The sense of self reaches its highest level of expression where practical and adaptive matters are least involved. The psychological capacities of the self, which reach deepest into the sense of inner identity, concern matters such as the ability to comprehend the truth and adhere to the good.” Paul Rosenfels

We are animals with inconvenient gifts.

Reason and intellect are inconvenient for a beast with a body that wasn’t meant to  think or reflect on what it feels.

We will create a technology that can potentially feed everyone on our planet…

  1. I loved reading this, made me think and made me sad, I read the whole post and learnt quite a lot, I also di not know about the Effeminist movement, thanks for the post


    1. The effeminist movement was a moment…and the movement was absorbed into the Gay Liberation Movement.

      Thanks for reading the post. That poem had a profound effect on my thinking and it still does…:)


    1. We already have that technology just as we’ve had the technology to replace fossil fuels for decades. Our problem is that our economic system is no longer able to serve the interests of bettering our lives because the regulations we had in place to keep its beastliness in check are gone…that’s why people are drinking poisoned water in some of our cities.

      I’m surprised that anyone is surprised. Government isn’t the problem; people who believe that government is the problem is the problem…if that makes sense…


      1. Did you ever see the Robocop movies. Do you think that maybe we turned the world into hell because we thought dystopian futures were cool in the 1980’s…that maybe the ‘if you think it it will happen’ crowd are right–and that all of this awfulness is the result of Mad Max 1,2 etc, Blade Runner, Robocop, and the Terminator…oh man, are we about to live out the Terminator…I think it’s time for bed…
