Revolution or Reform?

Category: Culture, Philosophy, Science, Techadmin @ 10:37 PM

Imagine this hypothetical landscape: You live in 2300. Humanity is still around and somehow through calculated global programs, colonizing mars or deadly wars has reduced its earth population from ten down to three billion already. And has fixed it there. The earth is tolerably warm but sustained.

Politics:

Countries are provinces of the world federal government and they have different state rules to practice their local cultural differences.
Different races campaign politically to defend the continuation of their gene traits and complaining about the others reproducing more than regulated.
The word “freedom” has mixed meanings and is used with the word “from” not to be misunderstood.

Economy:

There is no centralized money and even digital currency is just a hidden layer of the world economy that some expert may still look at.
People use public services more than their private properties, however that’s a cultural thing; Everyone is given a minimum of private ownership by birth, and several times during their life span. People can lose their private stuff accidentally or choose to donate it at will, however the world welfare system may restore it for them.

There is a notion of money, but that is negative (like debt) which is calculated by an individual’s cost of living such as their footprint as long as it is calculably affected by their personal choices.
Therefore there is no money. There is fine.

Business:

Growth of companies are limited through regulating their shareholder’s wealth. New-capitalism is practiced safely.
Work is constitutional right but voluntary and companies act more like temporary social games shaped by entrepreneurs and closed and cashed out once they serve their purpose. Land and land resources, infrastructure, utilities, transport and media belong to the public and can not be bought by companies or other legal entities by the world constitution.

Every citizen is granted an equivalent of some work/office space and work equipment after a certain age. They can use the equivalent of their office space for individual business or they can exchange it with an equivalent of that when they get a job or build a company.
Education is too a constitutional right and voluntary. People get educated to fit the available work opportunities. Public education is accessible globally and private education is the service that educational companies serve.

Democracy:

Terms above are regulated by the world federal government, which is a distributed post-digital consensus system on the Internet. Democracy is not a hard-coded system and is a complicated structure for collective decision making by humans (and partly even by pets and rightful animals). It senses and collects data from different levels of humans’ lives and aggregate it organically to sense what people want (implicit voting) and thus regulates the society democratically. It’s optimisation will be focused on human’s psychological level and it’s well being. Feeling good is a constitutional right. Citizens get notified about the important updates of their local or federal rules depending on importance and relevance to their lives, and can always overwrite their predicted vote or temporarily exit the decision-making networks voluntarily. Politicians, lawyers and developers aid the machine. General assemblies are held by politicians who are themselves through the machine. Newer versions of democracies are be deployed. All citizens of the world have constitutional right to access the overall simulations and predictions that the system provide based upon the latest rules. Cultural differences will be shaped by local rules decided by the local people at the time. Climate, genetic differences and culture will self-organise the world to a peaceful multicultural equilibrium.

Legal system:

Over-scaling is a unified crime. Occupying other’s territories, violence, killing of rightful beings, exceeding the individual footprint limit, are all forms of over-scaling and will be fined by custody or private property depending on the degree of crime. People scale for sport in the virtual world.

Celebrities:

Plato, Darwin and Mandelbrot are more famous than Einstein. Few nerds know Obama. No body knows Kanye West. But there’s this terrible dancing monkey all over the fucking virtual world.

Other species:

People talk to pets through chips and devices. Eating animals (and humans!) is highly regulated and lab-grown meat (and a lot of other lab food) has taken off. People consume them according to their fashion, taste and lifestyle.

Animals or humans are not being slaughtered in the real world unless there is a legal warrant or a specific type of digital authorization signed for it. Of course people (and pets) still cheat when you don’t see them, but machines watch, warn and stop the cheaters who kill “rightful animals” illegally. There are debates around the definition of that term. Say there is a list including mammals and big land animals. There are debates and protests to include or exclude a certain species.

In Spain (or north Africa?) they still chase bulls in a safer and non-fatal form of bullfighting. And those who love fishing have to go to, let’s say china, because it’s still legal there.

Parenthood:

There are still families, although people are free to live in different social settings and move on to new groups. This will be reinforced by cultural differences in each region and the cultural differences will be maintained.

Psychology:

People take things for granted. They are civilized and they behave but they can easily get depressed and die a fragile life if they get isolated. It’s called “laziside”.
People have become even lazier than us in a sense that they have outsourced their surviving “actions” to the technology and thus they have also outsourced many of their “sensations” because keeping them is not crucial. Shortly, many sensorimotor functions of the brain are practically outsourced to the machines and that’s worrisome due to the depression and numbness that it creates.

Sport:

For the reason mentioned above, “nature gyms” are all around and somewhat mandatory to train people to practice their sensations in the absence of some practical technologies. Professional sports have become intellectual. People compete over their “nature gym” skills by using their physical, social and cognitive skills to show off that they are best. There are cognitive games in the “nature gyms” where people look into each other’s eyes to read feelings and stuff like that. Sex comes to sport with different forms of convertors.

Architecture:

Nature and civilization are mixed up technologically. Buildings breathe and cities are self-sustained. Rooms rotate and change size and adapt with the light conditions democratically by the wishes of people in them.

The list goes on.

A future landscape that is missing a lot of unimaginable technological advances or their cultural artefacts. Just one in a zillion possibilities. Just fantasize and expand it on your own vision.

Then, question:

Is it fun? Should we start talking about a scenery like this? If yes, should we discuss how we should act accordingly to move towards something like this? And not further away from it? Should we wait till machines do it for us?

Or should we – really painfully – go extinct?

Lavish Party

Category: Politicsadmin @ 12:20 AM

If you didn’t know how politics work, now you know: Some hundreds of thousands of children who are alive and fine right now and are having a safe time with their parents (from yet an unknown country) will die within few years, because of this table:

Lavish

Reminds the article:

“The Act was meant to stop lobbyists from treating lawmakers and government officials to fancy dinners, or lavish parties. But the law had many loopholes — including a notorious “toothpick rule” allowing them to serve as much finger food as guests can eat.”

One of the respected guests of this lavish party, Maryilin Hewson, the CEO of Lockheed Martin and one of the top 20 most successful women on earth named by Forbes, had said before:

“volatility all around the region” should continue to bring in new business. According to Hewson, “A lot of volatility, a lot of instability, a lot of things that are happening” in both the Middle East and the Asia-Pacific region means both are “growth areas” for Lockheed Martin.

Someone should crash this party, and should go over to this bunch of ordinary people (when they are tipsy) and tell them that they should seriously consider to stop killing millions in other countries and to stop sacrificing their own citizens in thousands and so not to send over another massive wave of million refugees to their own countries. And not do all of these for a little more profit for themselves.

And that means they should stop everything they have in hands and do not sign whatever paper is in their offices and on their tables tomorrow (arms sale contracts). Then they should quit their jobs to work in a bar instead.

And if they ask why, you should:

“Because Eichmann. Because Hitler. Because Gadafi. Because fractal. Because history you idiot!”

Functional Empathy

Category: Philosophy, Techadmin @ 2:22 AM

Here it comes a call for addressing an unpleasant need. A need for recognizing a broader definition of some modern and civilized traits of psychopathy that will functionally include every one of us. A hidden angle of our truth that we need to face and recognize, as this can be the main cause behind the biggest problems that our world faces today.

Hell

A phrase from hell: At any cost

A simple mechanisms has become the fuel for our capitalistic growth and the driving force of our technology: Boards of corporations are pressured by shareholders to make decisions as quick as possible to deliver profit at any cost.

The profit is measured by money, a totally fake entity, and that is not where the problem lies. If it was, would be totally fine to play around with a fake thing that does not pose a danger. That would be as harmless as playing a video game.

The problem lies in those three words: “At any cost”. A capitalistic mantra that is designed to exclude all the affected “unavluable things” that can suffer as the byproduct of our value maximization. Wherever this term appears it could be replaced by longer phrases, articles and albeit books if we had decided to ellaborate on that. As a result of every single act of our value maximization, lives and feelings of many beings are fractally at stake. Our capitalistic ideology can not afford such uninmportant semiology, thus it refers them to hell; at any cost.

A conventional psychopath has a “good story”

Psychopaths are portrayed by public as ruttless killers with ugly faces and creepy eyes.

Conventional psychopaths, activated or not are just people with relatively smaller or less active amygdala (the so-called empathy center of the brain). Biologically they are hunters or parasites fighting for their own survival, only that their victim can easily be another human from a close social proximity, aka a “tribe”.

A killer, raper or torturer will not acquire that title until they fit in the same pictured frame or same short story, together with their human pray/victim. A conventional psychopath gets detected and makes newspaper headlines only when their crime have a short and comprehensible story for our simple minds, carried on our primal brains.

We will not understand that an abusive tie between two humans exists or hurts, until it can form a comprehensible story and touches the limited range of our human emotions.

Modern humans are functional psychopaths

We are all very likely to be functional psychopaths.

This will strike us to know that a shareholder or consumer of an irresonsible business and the victim of that business can easily be two people in a one-way and abusive bond or relation unknown to both sides. And sadly even more so unknown to the abuser than to the victim. Somtimes the victims get to understand who is running over them before the abuser starts to care.

Forget other species, only between the humans functionally psychopathic bonds are much more common and statistically widespread than urban instances of anti-social crime that make headlines in the media and spark national outrages. You don’t know them because they lack a comprehensible narrative, a “good story”.

As a shareholder or a consumer of an unethical business that delivers profit at any cost, we may already be remote psychopaths with effects worse than the movie characters in slaughterhauses, as we are living off harming many other victims. Only that the prays are not close members of our tribe. We just don’t know or see them.

We need a more general and philosophical definition of “psychopathy” beyond the conventional psychiatric terminology that limits that concept to just an anti-social disorder.

We need that broader definition of psychopathy to see and understand what our increasingly powerful collective civilization is doing to the world and ultimately to ourselves.

We need that for the survival of our species.

Greed before empathy, A recipe for extinction

With power comes responsibity. Why? For survival.

Now imagine tribal/local empathy with global influence.

Do you know how to wipe out a species from inside? Empower their individuals, without accordingly granting them an increased level of empathy. Their equilburium will collapse and they will harm each other to ultimate extinction.

Capitalism is the last instrument that we have used to follow up with this recipe.
Capitalism increases the range of our individual power much faster than ever before, while not helping our empathy circle growing any bigger. As the workers of the capitalistic machine we are not supposed to feel that something is wrong as long as we are functional.

Our global influence is in action to harm many other beings, while our tribal empathy is fairly satisfied inside our own social bubble. That is why we naturally feel fine and follow the system until a danger comes to our visibility and touches our basic emotions and stimulates our rather weak empathy that is much smaller now than it should be with respect to our power.

Our empathy is tribally limited

Human society was during its longest history of evolution a scattered group of isolated homo tribes. Reletively recently our society has scaled up to have become this huge interconnected network. Still at every point and at each individual it is just a local tribe. And each of us is just a naked ape with a primal brain that hasn’t evolved according to the fast pace that it has created in its environment.

We are still naked apes playing around and messing with the nature with technological tools. We are equipped with things that we don’t understand although we have collectively made them. As individuals we still run around with our ancient brains that doesn’t seem to have added many brain circuits to that of our prehistoric ancestors. And particularly to their amygdala.

The empathy mechanisms in that brain has evolved slowly as social mechanisms of control, to assure the survival only in a tribal level. As for most of our evolution our behavior could influence things only within that limited social structure.

We have no care or attention whatsoever, towards the creatures outside our social proximity. This made us a regular animal in the nature, until our power surpassed the borders of our fine-tuned empathy and reached beyond our tribe. Ever since we have been blindly increasing the territory of our influence faster than the territory of our affective understanding and in an ever acllerating pace.

The modern interconnected world has stretched our influence way beyond the visible range of our cognition, let alone the much narrower circle of our affective empathy. We have no care or attention whatsoever towards those who get trapped outside our narrow empathy circle, let alone the affected beings completely outside our visible zone.

All you need to do is to ask yourself this one question: How many people (let alone other beings) you harm during our lives, without seeing or registering them?

We are much moer terrible than what we want to believe we are.

We need functional empathy

To systematically neutralize our “functional psychopathy” and reverse some of its harms we need to invent “functional empathy”. Our natural empathy is way too limited to carry such burden.

In order to reduce the unpredictable harms that technology causes to the environment, it should start to feel it to decide whether or not it should change it in that direction.

That one principle with any interpretation, could have saved us from much of our modern problems and could made our growth much more sustainable and genuine. And should become prioritized with something even more aggressive the capitalism itself.

How could we potentially use our technology to “feel” the world is not to be addressed here, but that poses the fundamental question:

How can we care for something that we don’t see?

I will not try to answer this right here. We need to build a paradigm. I will try to throw some ideas later with sparks I see in the world of big data. Empathetic data-driven decision making.

A blueprint awaits us. Help if you agree!

Congratulations! Mergers are coming for your food

Category: Politics, Techadmin @ 6:54 PM

Bayer proudly acquired Monsanto for $57B $66B. B means Billion.

To anyone out there who doesn’t quite [care to] understand why this is terrible news:

It’s very much understandable that we don’t like politics and it is fair that we don’t want to waste energy and nerve on potentially bad, or irrelevant news. It’s also very natural that we do not really know by heart what is the difference between $66B and say $66M. Or remembering that one of them is 1000 times bigger than the other.

Three quick questions

1. Do you eat food sometimes? Any kind of food.
2. Do you think you will be alive in 10 years from now?
3. Do you NOT work for Bayer or Monsanto or hold shares in any of them?

If your answers are positive, then yesterday’s final approval of Bayer buying the unethical evil firm, Monsanto, will hurt you and your children PRETTY SOON.

It will certainly affect you negatively in 10 years from now. It will make you and your family afford less food, in a more polluted and wasteful environment. Even if you are not a farmer or you are completely outside the supply chain.

And it doesn’t matter where you live!

Should we care?

We may not care that such mergers inflate prices. We are confident that we will afford it, no matter what. Or that they are just playing with “money” which after all is a fake entity.

We may as well not care that they make farmers lose their jobs. Afterall it is inevitable. Right? (However, on its right time and after the RIGHT process!)

Mergers will control market in the future with their monopoly. Is that the biggest problem?

No.

The problem is that they will feed us what they want, at any cost for our body or our environment. Well, they are not our enemies. They just don’t care! They are after one profit and your lif is the cost!

That’s how they will poison you in a long run and pollute your surroundings. No cinspiracy theory. It’s simpler than that.

Industry-sponsored research and monopoly of big money

I am not a naturalist actually! In fact am pro GMOs and some of its applications. And some of the sustainable biotechnological innovations the big firms come up with. But when it comes to research there are principles.

It is a problem when big firms hijack science to rush profit instead of letting it be where it belongs to help a sustainable development.

Technology should move forward humbly, and with cafreful considerations.

Not everything that can be made should be made!

Such mergers patent natural development and abuse their monopoly later. Even worse. they make unnatural and dangerous developments that will hurt us in a long run. They lie to you too. Look at the sugar scandal that just leaked out at the same time, after half a century.

Final word

We are in trouble already. We should – today and not tomorrow – rush anything that will reverse the mess that we have made with our planet, not to make it worse. The only thing we don’t need now is a $66B acquisition like this that will end our hopes.

So you may want to read about what happened yesterday, act upon it, share some petitions, or be prepared to act against the next evil merger.

These mergers borrow from your future to add value to someone else’s now.

It’s a big f*cking club and you AIN’T in it!

Let’s wake up.

Psychopathy in Politics. Trump, Ahamdinejad and the rest of them

Category: Philosophy, Politicsadmin @ 7:39 PM

Unpredictability of an embarassing election

The most powerful nation on earth, the geography that still absorbs the best and most courageous minds on the globe, has managed to narrow down its three hundred million population down to two embarrasing choices. For their president, and commander in chief.

The two-party system is locked up. Money has reinfoced its power. In once being the land of the free and the home of the brave, people do not choose their faith freely anymore.

And it is still called a democracy.

On one side the democratic party secretly back-stabbed Bernie Sanders, for a curropt politician with a careless history of causing wars and conflicts, Hillary Clinton. On the other side a TV host with the scariest promises rarely heard in that level of power became the finalist of the republican party. And his rhetorics has already polarized the country in two or more hostile clusters.

It is hard to predict how the US (and the world) would look like after each of the two. But indeed harder to especulate that with Donald Trump.

Psychopaths and politics

Trump has an attitude. Those who have followed the Iranian politics would recognize that his character is somehow similar to Ahmadinejad of Iran. Both are primitive and instictive enough to have been resembled to monkeys or alpha gurrilas. And by the way we should be grateful that such profiles demonstrate and manifest such behavior so we can develop an eye and spot it elsewhere in our politics.

But how can an average ape climb up the ladders of human power hirarchy and reach some of its highest tops? Well these profiles are narcissists that posses not much quality but mimicing the values around them and growing bigger by sucking the juice out of the things in their environment without other considerations. Energy vampires as they are called by the public, do not normally hesitate to backstab their support, after they served their purpose for them.

Ahmadinejad which was the forced choice of the Iranian hardliners and took the power with coup by backstabing the rivals brutally, quite quickly started to make trouble for his companions and friends. That included eventually many conflicts with the supreme leader who had paid a big price by taking his side while they stole the votes of a nation in the Iranian 2009 election.

A psychopath’s strategy is defined by “self” and not so much tied to the long term goals of a greater whole, their environment, their constitution, a regime, a party, or an establishment. Their circle of empathy can be literally as tight as their skin boundaries, which enforces no commitment whatsoever, even to their closest friends.

The core values of a psychopaths – self benefit – does not change, but the means of reaching those goals may change quickly by any change in the environment.

A change in the environment, such as being elected.

The interaction of our politicians within the environments around them is still driven by our primate brain eveolved in the groups of 100 to 150 people. Now that the man kind is connected, such small selfish traits of parasitic behavior or psychopathy, and a minor flaw in practicing empathy can have world wide effects and can spark self-organized terrible disasters that would destroy us all together.

It is thus really important to study the interaction of our politicians and how they play with the strings tied to them in their social organizations. It is crucial to follow up how people have climbed up the ladders, driven by their psychology, to see what damages they may cause in that system later. Politics not merely based on sociology, but also psychology. That is what I think is not discussed enough and it is now getting dangerous.

Back to Trump and Ahmadinejad. They have got no empathy. It is quite likely for their Amygdala (the empathy center of the brain) that they both score in the bottom couple of percents of the activity range with compered to an average chunk of normal humans.

Lack of empathy in power is the most important danger that the human kind faces. It brings pure uncertainty. No empathy for the underdog means no empathy for the superior or colleagues. A psychopath will not play within the rules. In this case Trump would probably have difficulties to show long-term commitment to the system, the party, or the establishment. He would not be committed to his lobyists, unless they make sure they have the means to control him during a future precidency.

I understand American politics has ensured ties that politicians stay responsible to their constitutions, but  the definition of constitution can vary a bit from candidate to candidate, too. There are official commitments and promises on paper, but there are individual goals and tendencies that leak through people’s attitude and history. And they are stronger with people exhibiting the psychopathic traits.

Trump will serve himself only, and will serve others as long as he needs. That’s the recipe to guess what he will do next at any moment of time. The good side of this is that in the locked up situation of the American politics that does not look like a democracy anymore, there are many narcissists scattered around. It’s pretty much everywhere like this, but these people are on top of the food chain and control many systems confidently and ruttlessly. This system works still and has not reached a collapse from inside or yet from a bottom up reform or revolution. Having a Trump as the commander in chief is scary but will also imply that he will not necessarily collaborate with the rest of “evil”s in the system. He will actually make trouble for them. Unpredictable and uncertain!

Still, I don’t think he would manage to mobilize the population like Hitler did once, or like Ahmadinejad tried. He would probably cause trouble for the people around, and will be – hopefully – isolated or disarmed by other centers of power around him, when they realize their profit is in danger around him. It’s not the case yet and will happen. But I have no idea if that potential hit the reality within 4 or 8 years, or never will.

Point being, deep inside we are all selfish, but the history of our choices shows how far our circle of empathy reaches, unofficially Trump’s commitment circle includes only himslef as much as he can manage to manipulate around. I think his precidency would have similarities to Ahmadinejad’s precidency in Iran. Only scaled up to a global level.

The psychopath’s rival

Clinton on the other hand, has a curropt history but she is more of a sane person.  She will play within the rules and will serve an establishment. She will certainly collaborate with a good chunk of moderaltely selfish people, and will thus manage to cause some well-thought damage to the world. To optimize a local benefit of a group of elite that is quite bigger then herself.

Clinton would be the continuation of the current regime. An increase in the equality, where even she as the unofficial candidate of wall street tries to collect votes from by abusing that topic.

Anti Trump leftist camp failed to see that even for the main body of Trump supporters, this is a class war. And they all play with this card. Afterall, this is still a democracy in form and cannot be run by the elites for the elites. No matter which part of the elites you represent, they need the majority.

Face-off type of comparison is misleading and is one of the biggest flaws of democracy. We have concentrated evil in Trump, vs. distributed evil in Clintons and a bigger gang. Guess for yourself which one causes more damage. And to which group.

How did we get in to this at the first place?

And what can we do now?

I sometimes think of “Gamification of ethics”. To make ethics fun and to spread ethical, caring and empathetic values through fun games. One way can be to popularize the practice of disarming psychopaths in any given setting, around any table. First of  all, the most powerful psychopaths who cause big wars and conflicts they all start small. Second, there is a hirarchy of power anywhere you look at. Psychopath (and that term includes all of us in some levels) will cause damage for those who are on their blind spots, for those outside of the circle of our empathy. And none of us have a global circle of empathy that reaches far outside ourselves. At least to keep the human kind intact and for the survival of our own species,  it is important to bring to the public, the skills we ALL need to posses, in order to defuse the psychopathic traits around us, so they safely inhibit and ignore the careless harm that they can cause to a much greater whole. This way, may be we ultimately avoid or postpone the singularity that will at least end the mankind.

Surreality

Category: Culture, Traveladmin @ 7:36 PM

I fail to take any side in this. My heart feels every one involved in the picture. My mind criticises them all. Just zoom out and see for yourself that our value system has come to a halt.

Burkini

So some males wrap females in fabric to gain control. From which some migrate to new places. In the new places, the females insist on wrapping themselves in a carpet. Say in 30 degrees, this time to make political statements. See, she is the only one not having a mat under. Cause she prefers it around. Armed cops rush in to the scene to address the “public concern”. But how can she untell a statement? By uncovering the fabric of course! Meanwhile bystanders are chilling by the beach and judging the scene in one way or another… And sitting on their own mats by the way, instead of wearing them! Everyone has their own strong opinion. No one knows what they are doing or why. Confused state.

Now add a truck that drives over the whole absurd scenery. Our world has already become surreal… #nice #france #world #wonderland

PS. Now Facebook wants me to tag 6 people in there. And I was on the exact same beach just two days ago, so I probably could!

Apology for war crimes?

Category: Politicsadmin @ 7:36 AM

An honest apology from Tony Blair.

Expressed by his shaking voice saying that he takes “full responsibility” for the decision he took to participate in the US-led war with Iraq together with a coalition of 40 other countries.

This act should be encouraged and shall be taken as a responsible step forward to solve a “problem”.

And we have a problem.

All of us, every one of us citizens of the world, whether we live in a western democracy or a middle eastern dictatorship or elsewhere around the globe should come together and actively participate to solve this problem.

And what is the problem?

Something is terribly wrong with the world we live in. A world where the intelligence assemssment and sensitive information “turns out to be wrong” systematically. And the aftermath of the decisions that leaders make are “more hostile, protracted and bloody than ever imagined”, always. All the bloddy time, whether the politican is Tony Blair or Hillary Clinton in one camp or Saddam Hussain or Bashar Al Assad in another front, the outcome of the decisions that leaders make is more bloddy and hostile than imagined.

What is this stronger rule that governs them all?

Well, I don’t know.

I am not in the camp that says Illuminati and a secret society has been rulling us since 18th century and everything is planned for the centuries to come. Neither do I side with those who think everything is conspiracy. And that “mess” is an emergant property of our complex civilization and evolves on its own. And that disaster self-organizes itself a little here and there and everything will be fine eventually as long as we have good intentions in the long run.

It is more complex than that. Local democracies or military coallitions can not solve this alone. Politics in general can’t overcome it on its own. Love alone is not capable to see it or predict it. And science, solo, can not feel it or even care about it. No nation, organization, or party alone can go ahead, decide and fix this and expect good outcomes.

Many things are terribly wrong with the world we live in. And every innocent child who is born to this – before absorbing the currportion from the surrounding adulthood – can easily feel and see that the big picrure we are drawing collectively is getting painful and is getting ugly.

“Expressing sorrow, regret and apology” is a good start for all of us to admit that something is wrong. And that terrible things can come out of otherwise [hopefully] good intentions. This happens if we don’t look at a bigger picture, without understanding it, and without caring to show empathy for all the beings that will be affected by our choices.

To overcome the paralyzing forces of “guilt” and to be brave to stop legitimizing what we have been doing so far, we need to break the bad habbits. We need a “change” in one way or another. And we need a change that we choose, before a bigger change is forced upon us by the stronger forces of the nature.

And if we leave politics alone, politics does not leave us alone. So let’s focus on the problem. We don’t have a solution but this confession gives hope that there could be light at the end of the tunnel.

Animals don’t have feelings or emotions. They don’t have the ability to think or to reason. These are common misconceptions. In fact animals don’t even exist!
