I think racism tribalism and nationalism are biological in nature. I think that they are all attempts at speciation.
Isnt the tribal instinct in humans telling of a baser drive to speciate further?
Couldnt all of the diversity of life become less mysterious by applying the analogy of all of the different languages and cultures that exist?
What has driven us in all of these millenia to call each other nation ‘brother’ one moment only to curse our ‘brother’ the next?
Such fundamental ability to cast aside our ‘brother’ is so prevalent that I wonder if it is rooted in biology. That we must reject what is arguably the same as us in the interest of speciating further explains how life branches off from just a handfull of kingdoms into billions of species. Darwinism and the selfish gene not withstanding.
We repulse one another so eventually we wont be ‘the other’ anymore.
Its getting harder and harder to distinguish between sentences that should have you’re in them and those that should have your.
Im calling it in the air…
It’s only a matter of time before Webster’s comes up with a ruling that there is no point in differentiating the two. Social media has murdered the part of my brain that distinguishes between ‘your’ the possessive pronoun and ‘you’re’ the short form of you are.
😀 what makes you think there is a man alive who can ‘fix’ the world?
When has it ever been done?
Do you know that one of the most widespread effects of the switch from hunting and gathering to sedentary farming was mass starvation?
That was what our first stab at this whole ‘civilisation’ thing bought us. They have excavated skeletons from before and from after this change and the people from the early agrarian period were shorter than before and had lower bone density( indicating deficiency diseases). And that is basically the effect of this centralised system. Even as I type this, there are 2 billion people out there trying to survive on less than $3 a day. Poverty is in the design. These fragile people turn to whatever militaristic organisations that exist to vent their frustrations. And instead of fixing the system (i.e. Abolishing it) we label them terrorists and spend trillions trying to murder them.
But there is yet hope. The human mind created civilisation. The same can uncreate it.
Lemme get this straight, youve been president for +4 years now &…
Killing foreigners and americans alike using drones is legal,
spying on EVERYONE is legal,
private companies putting gmo food on our shelves WITHOUT LABELING it is legal,
but weed is still illegal,
and youre gonna give bradley manning a life sentence for exposing the bush administration’s use of torture and other assorted war crimes.
Congratulations Barack, your presidency is a failure.
Pleesh excush ma shpeling Obama. Hat I know yua recardings dish I woulda payed moar attenshinsh to tha squigly reds lines.
There is no beginning in life’s movie. Unless you’re jesus christ, Im pretty sure they dont start the callender with your birthday.
There is no real end either. Who ever gets to die when theyre ‘done’?
One usually just drops off mid scene, without a hint. Like an extra. Its ‘your’ life, but youre not the lead…
No credit. No applause. Just kindly leave the stage.
I just read somewhere that prism chose to spy on a persons internet activity if it reasonably assumed (51% ) that you were a foreigner.
What Im wondering is, considering how misspelt some of these right winger rants are, one could easily assume that some of their authors dont in fact speak english as a first language…
Well there’s your 51% probability right there.
Smile crazies, you’re on candid camera.
