Privilege is an increasingly common idea in political parlance, describing unearned circumstances affecting outcomes between groups.
Yet privilege benefits from its own unearned circumstances: fewer competing ideas, limited—if any—rigorous debate, and more dangerously, the excoriation of nonconformists. The Internet provides even the most obscure idea a collective voice. Within moments, social media and blogs unite once unmatched voices, propelling ideas into prominence. The Dark Ages Were Caused By Two Enormous Volcanic Eruptions. In 536 CE, the Byzantine historian Procopius wrote of a thick fog that suffocated the sun and plunged all of the Mediterranean into a year of cold and darkness.
The phenomenon would signal the start of one of the greatest disease pandemics in history: the Plague of Justinian.

It’s found in a small group of writers and thinkers who are trying to overcome the materialism and rationalism of the present age and rediscover the perennial truths that lie behind all religion. These writers are grappling with the occult and esoteric paths of the past and present. They’re trying to explore these movements without falling into either credulity or blinkered scepticism. They include Jay Kinney, founder of Gnosis magazine and author of The Masonic Myth; Mitch Horowitz, a New York book editor whose own works include Occult America and One Simple Idea: How Positive Thinking Reshaped Modern Life; and Erik Davis, author of TechGnosis and Nomad Codes: Adventures in Modern Esoterica.

Speaking at a meeting of special services from the Commonwealth of Independent States, he warned: "The international community has now hit a new geopolitical challenge, an international criminal group in the name of the Islamic State.

"The escalation in tensions in Afghanistan has brought on serious dangers. ISIS has been looking to grow its presence in Asia and has active cells in India, Pakistan and Malaysia. The Second Machine Age, Reviewed by Paul Starr. Gordon’s pessimism is extreme. Now in his seventies, he has been disparaging the economic gains from new technology for years, and he sees no evidence to change his views. In one of the more remarkable claims ever made in the social sciences, he declares that “future advances in medicine related to the genome have already proved to be disappointing.” The future has already been a disappointment: in a nutshell that sums up a strain of disillusionment in contemporary thought with what many regard as the unfulfilled promise of technology to make us all more prosperous.

The pagan mindset was not merely an outlook but a whole nest of belief structures that pervaded even under the iron rule of The Church: It was the reason you left food out for the Dead, why you didn’t cut down some trees, why you could put a Saint’s statue upside down to make him behave if he didn’t do what you wanted. ” Wyrd literally means ‘that which has turned’ or ‘that which has become’.
