Photo by David Moir/Reuters The pleasure we take in beauty must have been shaped by evolution — but what adaptive advantage did it give us? by Mohan Matthen In every culture on Earth, people decorate their possessions and themselves, and enjoy visual art. They stare in awe at vast landscapes and the starry sky, and they sing and dance, and make instrumental music. Why? The answer seems obvious: it gives them pleasure. But why should it? What benefit does the capacity for aesthetic pleasure bestow on … Continue reading Eye candy
By Don Quijones, freelance writer and translator in Barcelona, Spain. Raging Bull-Shit is his modest attempt to challenge the wishful thinking and scrub away the lathers of soft soap peddled by our political and business leaders and their loyal mainstream media. Few people have paid such a high price for success as the Italian novelist and investigative journalist Roberto Saviano. In 2008, at the tender age of 26, he published Gomorra, a brutal, amphetamine rush of a novel based on exhaustive research he had done on the Neopolitan mafia, la Camorra. At first, the mafia was nonplussed about the publication; … Continue reading Which Country Is Europe’s Biggest Narco State?

How do you control the information that a person needs to remember to make adequate decisions? Since memories are only as good as the information they are drawn from, that outward information needs to be altered … Continue reading Memory Manipulation
Corrupt Government Officials – Many of Whom Are Atheists – Use the Most Extreme Forms of Religion to Divide and Conquer Us Fundamentalist Muslims, Christians and Jews all think they are in a “holy war” against the other guy. They assume that Christianity, Judaism and Islam are mortal enemies.

They’re being played. Specifically, while it’s true that Saudi Arabia … Continue reading Religious Fundamentalists Are Being Played: Saudis, Israelis and Americans Are All In Bed Together
Written by Rebel of Oz Have you ever thought about why our ruling parasites officially abolished slavery in the 19th century? Because slaves are too expensive, even if you are Jewish and buy your slaves from a Jewish slave dealer at half price.

They had to provide him with healthy food, clothing, accommodation and basic entertainment to keep him happy and healthy to ensure a long, productive life. It’s far cheaper to hire a ‘free’ man, create circumstances that make him … Continue reading Imagine: A World Without Jews
