This is how technology corrodes human freedom

We humans are piratable animals. For now, pirates are limited to analyzing external signals. Liberal democracy faces a double crisis. What most focuses attention is the well-known problem of authoritarian regimes. But new scientific discoveries and technological developments represent a much deeper challenge to the basic liberal ideal: human freedom. Liberalism has managed to survive, for centuries, many demagogues and autocrats who have tried to strangle freedom from outside. But ...Read full article...

This is why war is such a great business

Afghanistan’s opium economy is a multibillion dollar operation which has a direct impact on the surge of  heroin addiction in the US. Despite president Trump’s announced US troop withdrawal, the Afghan opium trade continues to flourish. It is protected by US-NATO occupation forces on behalf of a nexus of powerful financial and criminal  interests. In 2004,  the proceeds of the Afghan heroin trade yielded an estimated global revenue of the ...Read full article...

Termine com a ansiedade em 2019

Controlar a ansiedade não é necessariamente uma daquelas resoluções que as pessoas querem realizar a cada ano, no entanto, pode ser uma daquelas tarefas que compensarão mais do que muitas outras modas passageiras. Muitas vezes as maiores vitórias são psicológicas. Uma vontade forte e a capacidade de superar tempos difíceis em nossas vidas resultam em versões mais fortes de nós mesmos. Infelizmente, poucas pessoas nascem com qualidades físicas ou ...Read full article...

End with anxiety in 2019

Controlling anxiety is not necessarily one of those new year resolutions people pen down late every year, however, it may be one of those tasks that will pay off more than many other fads. Often the greatest victories are psychological ones. Many times, a strong will and the ability to overcome difficult times in our lives results in stronger versions of ourselves. Unfortunately, very few people are born with ...Read full article...

Estados Unidos se niega a luchar por la ‎finanza transnacional

La retirada de las fuerzas militares de Estados Unidos presentes en Siria y Afganistán ‎y la dimisión del secretario de Defensa James Mattis son manifestaciones del cambio ‎radical del orden mundial. Estados Unidos ha perdido el primer lugar mundial en el ‎plano económico y también en el plano político. Ahora Estados Unidos se niega a ‎luchar sólo por los intereses de la finanza transnacional.

The United States refuse to fight for the transnational financiers

The US withdrawal from Syria and Afghanistan, as well as the resignation of General Mattis, attest to the upheaval that is shaking the current world order. The United States are no longer the leaders, either on the economic or the military stage. They refuse to keep fighting for the sole interests of the transnational financiers. The alliances that they used to lead will begin to unravel, but without their ...Read full article...

Ingredientes em alimentos processados ​​são viciantes

O termo “dependência alimentar” apareceu pela primeira vez na literatura científica em 1956. A ciência não precisa nos dizer que os alimentos processados ​​são viciantes. As formas do corpo das populações ocidentais são prova suficiente disso.  Mais importante, é o que a indústria alimentícia coloca nos seus produtos, o que os torna viciantes. Então, que comida é viciante para você? Chocolate, batatas fritas, bolachas? Você já pensou em um, ...Read full article...

Noam Chomsky disqualifies himself as an Intellectual

Noted academic, father of modern linguistics, political/anti-war activist Noam Chomsky disturbingly supported Hillary in 2016, saying “I don’t think there’s any other rational choice.” At the time, I called it a disturbing statement by someone who knows better. Money-controlled duopoly power runs America, a one-party state with two extremist right wings. They’re in lockstep on issues mattering most, including support for endless wars of aggression and corporate empowerment over ...Read full article...

Ingredients in processed foods are Addictive

Science does not need to tell us that processed foods are addictive. The body shapes of western populations are enough proof of it. Most importantly, it is what the food industry ads to their products what makes them addictive. So, what food is addictive for you? Chocolate, chips, crackers? You’ve already thought of one, right? It is true that in our colloquial language we use terms such as “addiction”, ...Read full article...

Why is the United States suddenly withdrawing from Syria?

The US Air Force is condemned to defeat if it confronts the Syrian Arab Army, which now has in its possession Russian anti-air materials, the best in the world. The US’s only viable option is to leave, sparing itself any humiliation. History is repeating itself. Once before, in Iraq, the United States had used Kurdish combattants, promising them a State before letting them be massacred by Saddam Hussein. Today ...Read full article...

Estados Unidos prepara una guerra entre ‎latinoamericanos‎

Los partidarios de la doctrina Cebrowski van moviendo sus peones. Si ‎se ven obligados a renunciar a sus guerras en el Medio Oriente ampliado, las llevarán ‎a la Cuenca del Caribe. El Pentágono está planificando el asesinato de un jefe ‎de Estado electo democráticamente, así como la ruina de su país, y está tratando de socavar la ‎unidad de Latinoamérica. ‎ John Bolton, hoy consejero de seguridad nacional de Estados Unidos, ha reactivado el ‎proyecto del Pentágono para la destrucción ...Read full article...

The United States are preparing a war between Latin-American states

Little by little, the partisans of the Cebrowski doctrine are advancing their pawns. If they must cease creating wars in the Greater Middle East, they’ll just turn around and inflame the Caribbean Basin. Above all, the Pentagon is planning to assassinate an elected head of state, ruin his country, and undermine the unity of Latin-America. John Bolton, the new US National Security Advisor, has relaunched the Pentagon’s project for ...Read full article...

The truth behind the detention of Huawei’s CFO, Meng Wanzhou

The unspoken US policy objective behind the arrest of  Huawei CFO Meng Wanzhou on trumped up charges, consists in breaking China’s technological lead in wireless telecommunications. What is at stake is a coordinated US and allied intelligence initiative to ban China’s Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd from the “next generation” state of the art 5G global mobile phone network. The intelligence operation is led by “Five Eyes”, a so-called “intelligence-sharing alliance to combat ...Read full article...

Não existe nenhuma prova que o leite fortalece os ossos

A ciência não muda. O que muda é a forma como ela e os resultados de experimentos e estudos científicos são apresentados ao público. Muitos paradigmas criados pela indústria dos alimentos ao longo do tempo estão sendo revelados como enganos, entre eles os supostos benefícios do leite. Veja a seguir três exemplos: Os países que consomem menos leite no mundo são os que tem níveis mais baixos de osteoporose. ...Read full article...
