The future of the past


2016-06-12 The future of the past

I was walking around in the picturesque town of Lysa nad Labem, my companion reminiscing about the way it was when she went to elementary school there under the communists. The stores that are still the same, the things that are new and the bus-stop that moved. In a small side street, we passed a building with an open window. There were school children inside rehearsing some cheerful musical. Read more of this post

r/K selection theory – the work ahead


2016-02-07-2.jpg

My previous post on the subject was extolling the virtues of the theory and the book explaining it; in this one I will talk about the gaps in it.

He has two stops on his ‘world tour’ in Canada. He had one in Montreal with the one in Toronto coming up on the 15th of August.

The only good Muslim is a BAD Muslim


2015-06-17-good muslims

This post was prompted by comments made to one of my previous ones:

“Dude if you make a title that includes the words “the Muslims” as a group, you immediately set off the asshole detector.
Are you a libertarian?
Try thinking about people as individuals.”

I am not going to argue his assessment here, but I will try to answer the question that is lurking behind it: what does it mean to be a Muslim in the Western world? Read more of this post

You don’t have to hate the Muslims


Someone commenting on my post about the Jews  said:
