Bertrand Russell Russell led the British "revolt against idealism" in the early 20th century.[58] He is considered one of the founders of analytic philosophy along with his predecessor Gottlob Frege, colleague G. E. Moore, and his protégé Ludwig Wittgenstein. He is widely held to be one of the 20th century's premier logicians.[55] With A. N. Whitehead he wrote Principia Mathematica, an attempt to create a logical basis for mathematics. Russell was a prominent anti-war activist; he championed anti-imperialism[60][61] and went to prison for his pacifism during World War I.[62] Later, he campaigned against Adolf Hitler, then criticised Stalinist totalitarianism, attacked the involvement of the United States in the Vietnam War, and was an outspoken proponent of nuclear disarmament.[63] In 1950 Russell was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature "in recognition of his varied and significant writings in which he champions humanitarian ideals and freedom of thought Biography Early life and background Early career

The Life Cycle of a Democratic Society (and Where We Are in That Cycle) 5th December 2015 By Peter Paul Parker Guest Writer for Wake Up World “Everything has a life cycle, and there is actually a life cycle for countries. We live in a world where the very word democracy is losing its meaning. The Life Cycle of a Nation Step one. Step two. Step three. Step four. Step five. Step six. Step seven. Step eight. Step nine. Democracy is dead, long live democracy. When you look at the state of the world today, do you think that perhaps people way smarter than me, or dare I say smarter than Dr. “Today, America would be outraged if UN troops entered Los Angeles to restore order. And I also beg you to listen to US President John F. Undoubtedly, this conspiracy is still happening today, as we tiptoe into totalitarianism. But, as the power-mongers increase their push toward totalitarianism, we are beginning to pull in the other. Democracy is dead. So the answer to all this is you. What is it going to take for you to stand up and say “No more”? Be part of the rebellion.

Bertrand Russell, la science, la démocratie et la « poursuite de la vérité » Une des pires choses qui résultent de l’augmentation moderne des pouvoirs des autorités est la suppression de la vérité et la diffusion de la fausseté par des agences publiques. Bertrand Russell« Symptoms of Orwell’s 1984 » (1956) L’atmosphère de peur et d’horreur que nous avons appris à respirer peut être dissipée si l’opinion publique peut être rendue plus sage. L’opinion publique peut être rendue plus sage si on peut faire en sorte que les faits soient connus. 1 William Clifford, Lectures and Essays, Macmillan, 1901. 2 William James, La Volonté de croire, Les empêcheurs de penser en rond, 2005. 1Un des principes fondamentaux qui sont à la base de ce qu’on appelle l’« éthique de la croyance » est qu’une croyance doit être jugée avant tout et même, autant que possible, uniquement en fonction des raisons qu’il peut y avoir de penser qu’elle est vraie. 3 Caroline Moorehead, Bertrand Russell. 4 Bernard Williams, Truth and Truthfulness.

Bertrand Russell Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre. Pour les articles homonymes, voir Russell. Bertrand Russell Philosophe et logicien Époque contemporaine Bertrand Russell en 1916 Bertrand Arthur William Russell, 3e comte Russell, né le 18 mai 1872 à Trellech (Monmouthshire), et mort le 2 février 1970 près de Penrhyndeudraeth (Pays de Galles), est un mathématicien, logicien, philosophe, épistémologue, homme politique et moraliste britannique. Russell est considéré comme l'un des plus importants philosophes du XXe siècle. La logique et le fondement des mathématiques : Russell est, avec Frege, l'un des fondateurs de la logique contemporaine. Il soutient l'idée d'une philosophie scientifique[2], et a proposé d'appliquer l'analyse logique aux problèmes traditionnels, tels que l'analyse de l'esprit, de la matière (problème corps-esprit), de la connaissance, ou encore de l'existence du monde extérieur.

The "Thanksgiving Genocide" Narrative - Veiled anti-White Propaganda Compiled by Red Ice Creations A lot has been written in the last 30 years in an effort to demonize the settlers, pioneers and pilgrims who came to America, to make a new life for themselves, people who were escaping horrible conditions and religious persecution. This is a look at the "Thanksgiving genocide" narrative and the absurdity around how White Europeans are portrayed as blood lusting devils, who apparently had all the time in the world hunting and killing Indians for pleasure, as opposed to the struggle to survive in a new land. Remember, during their first winter, 50% of them died from disease, starvation and cold. The exaggerations and caricatures have become more and more extreme over the years. "The pilgrims (who did not even call themselves pilgrims) did not come here seeking religious freedom; they already had that in Holland. Who knew there were politically correct Indians? Oh, the HORROR! The first story is from: I disagree. [...] snip [...] Be VERY afraid! Mr.

The Psychopathy of Greed 19th November 2015 By Zen Gardner Contributing Writer for Wake Up World I always find it interesting that people blame corporate greed for our overall condition. That the entire world system is built on a capitalist system in one form or another is mind boggling. This is how and why the populace acquiesces to domination by the few. Humanity’s being told how the game works and that this is your only option. Group absolved endemic greed doesn’t make it right, however justified, by any stretch of the imagination. It’s fully accepted that corporations need to grow. Do the employees really benefit? Yet this model is accepted carte blanche as a driving force for a healthy economy. Getting to the Root of the Problem The entire system is built on a background of assumed scarcity, that there’s not enough to go around so unless you push and shove your way into a place where you “earn” your keep and beat those around you you’ll be hung out to dry. Clever bastards. Greed – A Name You Can Trust Step Up

However, certain scientists indoctrinated into the various hierarchical trees of academia or research and development have the habit of turning a number of scientific principles, theories and tenets into ‘indisputable facts’ — in spite of evidence to the contrary. Some of these ‘indisputable facts’ have had some serious challenges from outstanding scientists with their outside-the-box thinking. Don’t get me wrong, indeed there have been and still are many crackpot ideas. 1. According to one study it has been found that we use around 8% of our DNA (previously it was thought to be 3-5%). However, a number of Russian researchers begged to differ with the junk DNA viewpoint, believing that nature wouldn’t be so wasteful: In biology almost every structure exists to perform a function and junk DNA should be no exception. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6.

The Sustainable Gladios and the West African Drug Trade By Rusticus Where in the world do the seemingly disparate ambitions of the “Green Economy,” the international drug trade, State intelligence agencies, and Islamofascists intermingle? In a real Fourth Estate, the front page of the Times or the Post would be viable candidates, but this, unfortunately, is not the world in which we live. This perplexing blend is relegated to the realm of Deep Politics, the alternative media outlets incredulous enough to cover it, and you, Reader, tenacious enough to consider its implications. In writing my recent article on the odious debt burden of $22.6 billion to be placed upon the people of Ghana at COP21 this December, any number of motives for this usurious “greening” of the country came to mind; from DeBeers diamond operations to “grey market” Chinese gold mines, from oil and gas transit lines to fertile Cocoa fields, the Gulf of Guinea has much to plunder and many a “geostrategic interest” for would-be Imperialists to exploit. A Lebanese syndicate?

The Greatest Epidemic Sickness Known to Humanity The following is Part One in a series. Read Part Two here. In the book Columbus and other Cannibals, indigenous author Jack D. As if performing a magic ritual, in exploring the entity of wetiko, we first have to invoke its spirit and enter into relationship with it. After evoking an entity like wetiko, in order to study it as objectively as possible, we have to hermetically seal it within an alchemical container. A Disease of Civilization Wetiko/malignant egophrenia is a disease of civilization, or lack thereof. Forbes continues, "this disease, this wetiko (cannibal) psychosis, is the greatest epidemic sickness known to man." Forbes writes, "The overriding characteristic of the wetiko is that he consumes other human beings, that is, he is a predator and a cannibal. We are currently in the midst of "the greatest epidemic sickness known to man" (please see my article "Diagnosis: Psychic Epidemic").
