Chemical Castration: Small Price to Pay For All the “Benefits” of Modern “Life”

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=od3NE0y3LkQ One of the most powerful questions anybody can ever ask themselves is -- WHAT'S  IN  IT  FOR  ME? These five words. Pose this question often and do so with iron resolve to refuse being a loser.

Consumerism for Dummies

"Consumerism" is a buzzword which is currently entering the mainstream. It used to be only hippies and economics wonks would talk about consumerism, but I hear more and more use of this term by people whose interest in economics is not particularly acute, but they are rightly sensing that something in our economic milieu is… Continue reading Consumerism for Dummies

Ask yourself: Are these the words of a master or are they… Continue reading The Master Becomes the Servant (II)

It's only natural that the more a person values LIFE, the more he must, even if not consciously at first, come… Continue reading The Awesome Power of Hate (II)
