An Interview Of Alfred Gluecksmann.

Lest we forget: the “other side” of wars. Instead of our addiction to violence and destruction, this is the side we should seek to know about, to understand, to “feel” so we can be empowered to give up on the violence we cling to though knowing it has never once solved any of our social problems as a civilization. We stand, once more on the brink of global war with the hawks waving the switch connected to their nuclear arsenal, an arsenal that is less and less of a deterrent and more of a double-dare you to push the button. Read this synopsis of Alfred Gluecksmann. Think about it then, as Jerry says, “Peace!”

THE ONENESS of HUMANITY

By Jerry Alatalo

r. Alfred Gluecksmann, editor at Argentum Post here on WordPress, was kindly willing to take part in a short question and answer interview after we made the request. This is the first published interview here at The Oneness of Humanity, and we wish to do many more with men and women from across the Earth. Any readers wishing to participate in an interview and sharing thoughts can simply let us know, and we’ll easily make the arrangements.

Thank you Alfred for contributing your thoughts in the following words.


Question 1…) What was your primary motivation for entering the world of blogging on the worldwide web – on the internet?

This one requires the most comprehensive reply, but I shall be as succinct as possible.​

As the son of parents who were declared stateless and who escaped the Nazi crimes against the humanity of Jews and others…

They Thought She Was Crazy: Doctor Extracts RFID Chip from Sex Trafficking Victim

Obviously this needs reblogging, and should be spread world-wide: human trafficking on a whole new level. Does anyone care, though?

Tales from the Conspiratum

trafficking

“I have a tracker in me,”read the cryptic note, found in triage by a greenhorn doctor — scribbled by a woman in the emergency room.

She claimed to have been implanted with a GPS tracking device of some kind — an assertion not unheard of, but never the less unusual.

Dr. A, anonymous for safety concerns, rolled his eyes — ordinarily, such a note would be a sure indicator of mental illness, for which a psychiatrist would need to be summoned.

But this woman appeared lucid. Sane. Not at all paranoid or delusional.

And she had an incision.

So an x-ray was performed, and medical personnel gathered to view the results. But they stood breathless in disbelief — indeed, while they didn’t find a GPS tracker,

“Embedded in the right side of her flank is a small metallic object only a little bit…

Five Important Life Lessons

Another priceless gem from Amrita.

Quietly Glow

Note : By Nithya Shanti

This is what I read today, wonderful lessons.

Five lessons that make us think about the way we treat people…

1 – First Important Lesson – Cleaning Lady.

During my second month of college, our professor gave us a pop quiz. I was a conscientious student and had breezed through the questions until I read
the last one:

‘What is the first name of the woman who cleans the school?’

Surely this was some kind of joke. I had seen the cleaning woman several times. She was tall, dark-haired and in her 50’s, but how would I know her name?

I handed in my paper, leaving the last question blank. Just before class ended, one student asked if the last question would count toward our quiz grade.

‘Absolutely,’ said the professor. ‘In your careers, you will meet many people. All are significant. They deserve your…

What Just Spilled?

A great point being made in this little conversation, by Amrita

Quietly Glow

NOTE : BY NITHYA SHANTI 

What Just Spilled?

You are holding a cup of coffee when someone comes along and bumps into you, spilling the coffee all over.

Why did you spill the coffee?
“Well because someone bumped into me, of course!”, you say.

Wrong!

You spilled the coffee because there was coffee in your cup. Had there been tea in the cup, you would have spilled tea.

Whatever is inside our cup, is what spills out.

Therefore, when life comes along and shakes us up (which it will!), whatever is inside comes right out. We can only fake it, until we get nicely rattled.

So we have to ask ourselves, “What’s in my cup?”

When our ego is triggered, when unwanted things happen or wanted things don’t happen, what spills out? How do we typically respond?

With openness, curiosity, patience, peace and humility? Or anger, bitterness, harsh words and…

Whitefish Puerto Rico Contract Cancelled, Now How About Letting Renewable Industry Leaders Step in?

A must read article for anyone who has thoughts on climate change and how to approach a dangerous future.

robertscribbler

At this blog I often cover how climate change is worsening the global weather situation. How fossil fuel burning is the primary cause of climate change. How renewable energy adoption is the primary means for removing global carbon emissions. And how bad, on our present track, climate change outcomes could become.

What I often do not talk about in main posts (though we see quite a bit in the comments section) is how underlying factors such as political corruption and the ideologies supportiing that corruption can harm effective responses to climate change.

Witness Puerto Rico. A U.S. territory that has suffered a very severe blow from one of the worst hurricanes ever to make landfall in the Caribbean…

Sermon on the Mound

Always feels good to realize I’m not alone in throwing up a good rant – there are quite a few adepts here on WordPress, so here’s one more.

CHURCH OF THE HOLIER THAN THOU, INCORPORATED

A for-profit religion where nothing is sacred, and human sacrifice is obligatory

 SERMON ON THE MOUND
Eve of 2007

The following sermon was delivered at a 2007 New Year’s Eve bonfire

burncollage0706

Dear Worried Souls:

Take Heart! the Worst is yet to come.  Witness this miserable mound of machine age offal.  Wasted resources compounded daily–advertising, packaging, junk mail, paperwork, broken equipment—a sorry heap of worthless Trash reviled by all.  The costs have become unbearable.

It does not live so cannot die.  We must dispose of it anyway, and we aim for the Sky.  We plead for help from the great Mother Earth and Father Sun. Open our senses to the stench of Burning Plastic.  Burn our Lungs with Particulates and Smoke. Singe our eyes with the Motes we scatter.  Spread sparks of Common Sense wherever Smog may go.

On this eve, the Church of…

National Character Counts Week: Welcome to Pathocracy

Another “must read” by Emma on Pathocracy and how to look at America under Trump’s madness.

good marriage central*

Image result for trump offends soldiers widow“The presence or absence of conscience is perhaps the deepest human division.”

Ian Hughes

Last week Donald Trump put another nail in the coffin of health care for American citizens, especially the most vulnerable ones; undermined the painstakingly drafted and internationally supported Iran nuclear deal; challenged his Secretary of State to an IQ test; chastised residents of Puerto Rico for their audacity to suffer and die in a hurricane-caused mayhem, and berated football players for their willingness to protest racial injustice. He also proclaimed the next six days, October 15 to 21, National Character Counts Week.

Yes, you have read that correctly.

The man who lies easier than he breathes (there is that perpetual snort, you know), who takes sadistic pleasure in the pain and suffering of others, and who lives for adulation and revenge without any efforts at disguising his destructive motives, lectures America about character.

Let it…
