New Study Finds Chronic Loneliness Poses Big Health Risk To Millions

Thu, 10/08/2017 - 15:09
Loneliness and social isolation may represent a greater public health hazard than obesity, and their impact has been growing and will continue to grow, according to research presented at the 125th Annual Convention of the American Psychological Association.

Carry The Fire,

Thu, 27/07/2017 - 15:56
Reposted from The Art of Manliness We’re going to be okay, arent we Papa?   Yes. We are. And nothing bad is going to happen to us. That’s right. Because we’re carrying the fire. Yes. Because we’re carrying the fire.  Once a year I read The Road by Cormac McCarthy. The yearly reading has become […]

Accepting Your Darkest Emotions Is The Key To Psychological Health, By Lila MacLellan

Wed, 26/07/2017 - 23:24
In a cultural age that’s decidedly pro-positivity, the pressure to suppress or camouflage negative feelings is real. However, psychological studies have shown that acceptance of those negative emotions is the more reliable route to regaining and maintaining peace of mind.

Trump’s Russian Laundromat, By Craig Unger

Wed, 26/07/2017 - 23:10
Editor's Note: So-called Russian interference in the 2016 elections is a fly speck on the wall compared with the decades-old money laundering and corruption racket of the Trump crime family.

Yale Professor Timothy Snyder On The Deeper Significance Of Collusion With Russia

Tue, 04/07/2017 - 18:11
Overall, Snyder's message is that the United States is not unique—neither in the world today nor against the backdrop of history—in being pushed in more authoritarian directions. If anything, Trump is exploiting the same tactics Putin and state-run media in Russia use, but with the American addiction to 24/7 media and smartphones and other devices, we’re making it easier for an emerging authoritarian like Trump to consolidate his power.

The Politics Of Terror Mirrors The Politics Of Heroin, By Aidan O’Brien

Tue, 20/06/2017 - 14:30
Is the war on terror therefore like the war on drugs: does it actually promote what it allegedly is fighting against? The facts suggest that this is the case.

The Cultural Sickness That Needs To Be Named, By Joe Brewer

Sun, 11/06/2017 - 15:08
This culture tells us that humans are selfish and greedy. It says that we are nothing more than individual islands of ego floating in a sea of chaos. It is the Great Myth of Separation that takes many forms. We’ve seen it as humans apart from nature, reason divided against emotion, body separate from mind, one tribe distinct from another. This mental tendency to categorize the world according to its separations is the root cause of illness in the world today.

The Worst Of Donald Trump’s Toxic Agenda Is Lying In Wait: A Major US Crisis Will Unleash It, By Naomi Klein

Sat, 10/06/2017 - 15:33
It is true that many of the more radical items on this administration’s wish list have yet to be realized. But make no mistake, the full agenda is still there, lying in wait. And there is one thing that could unleash it all: a large-scale crisis. Large-scale shocks are frequently harnessed to ram through despised pro-corporate and anti-democratic policies that would never have been feasible in normal times. It’s a phenomenon I have previously called the “Shock Doctrine,” and we have seen it happen again and again over the decades, from Chile in the aftermath of Augusto Pinochet’s coup to New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina

The Problem’s Not Trump, It’s Us, By Sameer Dossani

Tue, 06/06/2017 - 15:53
Those who self-identify as “The Resistance” must understand one thing: Trump is no accident of history, no aberration. He is the logical outcome of the system that preceded him. If you would fight against him, you must fight against that system.

The Dangerous Approach Of Living Without Purpose, By Thomas Oppong

Wed, 31/05/2017 - 18:35
William Cowper said “Existence is a strange bargain. Life owes us little; we owe it everything. The only true happiness comes from squandering ourselves for a purpose.”

An Inside Look At Our Horsemen Of The Apocalypse, By Jefferson Morley

Mon, 29/05/2017 - 14:40
I went to Tillerson's ranch in Bartonville [Texas]. I pulled up in front of his ranch, a big, big horse ranch. In front of the gate to his ranch, there was this big sculpted metal globe. It looked like someone took a carving knife to it and the whole upper part of the globe, along these uneven serrated edges, opened up into this gaping void, and I thought, Wow, that is symbolic. Here is Tillerson’s globe and it’s a world whose apex has been systematically shredded. It was quite a metaphor.

Is There Life Before Death? By Carolyn Baker

Mon, 08/05/2017 - 18:42
I have no problem with preparing for the future. I’ve been writing books on that topic for about six years. The future has come to meet us and smack us upside the head on just about every level imaginable. And…living primarily in the future takes a terrible toll on us in current time. In fact, it strip-mines our lives in the here and now and guarantees that we become “extinct” long before NTHE does its dirty deed.

The Relentless Push Towards War: This Time With North Korea, Why? By Chris Martenson

Sat, 29/04/2017 - 14:55
The news about North Korea is at a fever pitch. Again, we have to ask, why now?

The Height Of Hypocrisy, By Michael Meade

Fri, 28/04/2017 - 16:17
In many ways, Trump is the symptom not the cure. When there is lack of genuine leadership and a loss of meaning at the heart of culture hypocrisy can become a collective illness. An old idea suggests that hypocrisy on the part of powerful people is more dangerous than other crimes; but self-deception on the part of common people is more dangerous than hypocrisy. There is some hope in the fact that recent polls show that a growing majority of people, including Independents and Republicans, feel that Trump is both untruthful and untrustworthy
