"Should The Bible Be Taught To Children?"

I saw this one on PZ Myers’s blog and I had to share it around. Wonderful to see someone so young engage in some critical thinking. It warms my heart.

A Tortoise Meandering Around on a Balcony.

What’s the Aesopian insight of this little clip? It's perhaps the greatest film on YouTube. Except perhaps for this clip, which is essentially Vice magazine in motion.

My channel: Subjectivity101.

Michael Hudson on Reagan.

Michael Hudson delivers a brilliant cutting analysis of Reagan’s economics, reform of the tax system and post-Reagan class war in the United States. If you haven’t seen or heard of “The Real News Network”, you should most definitely take a look. They provide a hardnosed and progressive take on contemporary events, vastly removed from the flippancy of much cable news analysis.

-Previously on “A Night of Dostoevskian Smiles and Sadean excesses”, take a look at “Minsky and The Financial Crisis”.

The picture is of a pro-Wikileaks protest in Sydney. I don’t know who took the photo. The angle of the shot,the interplay of foreground and background, and the fact that everyone seems to be animated and smiling endear this picture to me.
