Too Often, Google Fails Badly as a Search Engine: It Omits Inconvenient Information

All Too Often, Google Fails Badly. Why? All too often, a search in Google fails badly because it omits inconvenient information, that’s why. And it’s why you must question everything. Let me explain. Since the coming of the ‘information messiah’, Google, the very notion of seeking information, or even ‘the Truth’, has become immortalized as the new verbal imperative, “Google it”. You’re told that if you want to know about something, just go to Google or Google Chrome, or even some of the other search engines built on Google, such as Duck Duck Go, or even Brave. And you’re ‘sure’ …

Tony Blinken Rockin in the Free World: American Schizoid

Tony Blinken: Rockin in the Free World or American Schizoid Man? In Kiev, Ukraine, Tony Blinken sang the chorus to the iconic song by Neil Young from 1989. Only, he didn’t bother to sing the actual lyrics—a total indictment of everything Blinken stands for. There’s colors on the street Red, white, and blue People shuffling their feet People sleeping in their shoes There’s a warning sign on the road ahead There’s a lot of people saying we’d be better off dead Don’t feel like Satan, but I am to them So I try to forget it any way I can[Chorus] …

The Pacifist’s Dilemma: What If The War Comes to You?

The Pacifist’s Dilemma: What If The War Comes to You?   The Ukraine War Has Created a Moral Problem for People in the Peace Movement   On February 24th, 2022, following a resolution in the Russian Duma, or legislative body which recognized the two breakaway regions of Ukraine, Donetsk and Lugansk as independent of the Ukraine authorities, Russia invaded Ukraine. I had several phone calls with my long time peacenik friends condemning Russia, presumably for its ‘unprovoked aggression’ against the ‘legitimate government of Kiev.’   As a pacifist since my teen years, the attack certainly raised questions as to whether …

RFK, Jr. for President: To Vote or Not to Vote, That Is the Question

Ed Curtin’s Interview with Regis Tremblay Recently, Professor Ed Curtin discussed the candidacy of Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. He’s the nephew of John F. Kennedy, who was President of the United States, and assassinated in 1963. He is the son of JFK’s brother Robert F. Kennedy, who was assassinated in 1968.  Both were ostensibly murdered for their opposition to the war in Vietnam, and, if you will, to ‘the Deep State’, which really rules the United States. They discussed the question whether the deep divisions and imbalances within US society can be reconciled. It’s thought provoking and well worth watching. …

Did Curiosity Really Kill the Cat? There is a common saying that Curiosity killed the cat. This is curious. It is as if whoever made up this saying wanted to prevent people from being curious. I maintain that LACK of curiosity leads to fatal consequences. The Kalama Sutta and Its Relevance to Today The Buddha in the Kalama Sutta admonished his listeners, “Don’t believe what is spoken by authorities, or is based on ‘well, everybody knows that’”. Examples abound where whole populations have been hoodwinked into disaster.So when ‘the authorities say that…..’this is Truth and that someone who opposes it …
