 Donald Trump And His Sycophants

The battle against Donald Trump and his sycophants is a battle against evil. It is a battle against the dark side of the human mind. It is a battle for human survival. It must now begin with all intensity. The word “Evil” as originally defined by the Abrahamic religions has left the Western vernacular. Time to bring it back in[Read More…]

The End Of Our Species Is Now A Real Possibility

The End Of Our Species Is Now A Real Possibility

From its very beginning it defined the human civilizational understanding of our relationship to Planet Earth and the cosmos. And it all worked very well for over three thousand years. But now we have a problem. That belief system turned our attention away from planetary/cosmic reality. That reality can be defined as the sacredness of all life and nonlife on[Read More…]

Homo Economicus We Have All Become

Homo Economicus We Have All Become

The viability of Planet Earth to sustain human civilization in its present form is now being questioned. We are heading toward a cliff. The fall will not just be painful; it could spell the end of Homo sapiens. For a start, we urgently need to examine the rational undergirding our Capital Market system. Certain elements of that system, laboriously pieced[Read More…]

 A twitter President, A Sclerotic Congress, A Horrifying Question: How Far Can The Boat Drift Before It Hits The Rocks? 

 A twitter President, A Sclerotic Congress, A Horrifying Question: How Far Can The Boat Drift Before It Hits The Rocks? 

We need to begin this discussion with the unfinished Presidency of Barack Obama. Some said it was because of his race. Others said it was his deliberative slowness as he explored every possibility and probability to its end before making a decision. Some said it was because he just could not “get along” with Congress. Others said it was because[Read More…]

An Inherent Ecocidal Death Wish Of Humanity

An Inherent Ecocidal Death Wish Of Humanity

Our problem: There is a high probability of massive pain and suffering and then human extinction within the next one to two hundred years. The problem extends well beyond global warming denier Donald Trump and his American followers. It even extends into the bowels of the American “Liberal Left” and their US Media. It extends beyond America itself. The problem[Read More…]

Donald Trump A Man of Evil?

Donald Trump A Man of Evil?

The Abrahamic concept of “evil” has to some extent left the Western vocabulary. The time has come for Americans to bring it back. They can do so by answering these questions: Is their country now under its control? Could Donald Trump and his followers bring down not just the country but human civilization? My essay provides answers. XXXXXXX As Donald[Read More…]

The Methane Hydrate Feedback Loop Threat

The Methane Hydrate Feedback Loop Threat

Will we experience a Methane (CH4) Hydrate Feedback Loop that will place us on a repeat path like that of the Permian Triassic mass extinction? Or, to our horror, will there be some other self-induced something even more horrific and impossible to reverse?   “Biosphere” is a term used to define the relatively thin layer of the earth’s surface that[Read More…]

Scenario Homo sapiens

Scenario Homo sapiens

A metamorphosis of the human mind far surpassing others seen throughout history will be occurring. Humans finally will have come to an understanding of a harsh reality; by their own actions and inactions they have brought on the beginning of their end. A painful lesson will have been learned, one forcing them to accept the fact that their continued existence[Read More…]

A Letter To Professor X And Those Others In His Profession Of Economics

Dear Professor X, For many years now I have been reading your 0p-Eds, articles in periodicals and academic papers. In my mind you are one Nobel Prize economist who speaks the truth to the weaknesses and strengths of past and present economic theory. With all due respect though; let me suggest that the time has come for you and the[Read More…]

A Dangerous Zero Sum Game—Donald Trump vs The Planet

A Dangerous Zero Sum Game—Donald Trump vs The Planet

Arctic News June 10, 2014 “There are such massive methane reserves below the Arctic Ocean floor, that they represent around 100 times the amount that is required to cause a Permian style major extinction event, should the subsea Arctic methane be released in a short period of time into the atmosphere….The energy necessary to produce these Arctic methane release rates[Read More…]

Echoes From The Past Expressing Hope For Humanity

A 2012 World Bank report stated that without quick action to curb CO2 emissions, global warming is likely to add 4 degrees Centigrade (39.2 degrees Fahrenheit) during the 21st century which is dangerously close to the temperature that initiated the Permian-Triassic extinction event 252 million years ago when 96% of all marine species and 70% of all terrestrial vertebrates were[Read More…]

An “Incomplete American Presidency”  

Some around the world were saying that the situation had deteriorated to the point where the US was turning into a “rogue state.” Pronouncements by populist Donald Trump casting American inner cities as “war zones” seemed to reconfirm this. Many in America were leaning toward that same conclusion. Internationally the country had become politically gridlocked in a toxic Democrat-Republican civil[Read More…]

Existential Threats And Our Belief Systems

Existential Threats And Our Belief Systems

This new Homo sapiens contradictory planetary reality leaves not just the western world, but the whole world in search for answers. We need to find the reason we are heading so rapidly toward dangerous shoals. How could we, the most clever and brilliant primate ever, be bringing on our own demise? Where did we all go so wrong? Could it[Read More…]

The Need For A New American Formula

The Need For A New American Formula

The time has come for serious introspection in America. The Nation is locked in a race between self-discovery and self-destruction. It is losing that race. It needs to recognize that the present equation does not equate. It is off-balance. America needs to reformulate a new equation. More wars based on the old equation will not do. Unfettered release of the human psyche as we now see in the current political scene will not do. And as for that critical evangelical Christian voting block; they need to understand that the Nation will be saved not by their belief in Jesus as their Savior, but by living his example.
