I now suspect that you suffered some sort of trauma connected with a religious organization. No, thank God ... (ahem) ... It was culture shock: Moving from a reasonably tolerant area to a socially retarded one at a young age. In the former, it was a given that various belief systems existed within ...

Re: Hommage a Tristano: The Review

... where Lennie would play the piano while the kids marched around the studio ... Danced , Marv, not "marched". I think you are identifying too much with a certain historical era of Deutschland. But you know what? You are picking up on something. I am reluctant to sound critical here. I ...

BT, if you think nothing will work ... Its not that. If I sound resigned its because I know the unlikelihood of the first step. Humankind has to outgrow religion . That doesn't mean spirituality. They are two different things. Consider the old Asian proverb about the finger pointing to the moon. DO...

How and when? People pretend they're sheep so long as the shepherd provides green pasture. But when the meadow dries up (or the oil runs out!) they lose faith in the experts. At such a juncture they have an opportunity to decide: sheep or Bopeep. It's having the opportunity that's important. What t...

So, to have your vision of New Marxico converge with The Future, everyone would still have to go to school . Namely, the Heidelberg Broom Museum ... we could have an annex installed in every town.

... But the only way to shorten survival time is for everyone to cooperate. But cooperation is impossible unless everyone shares equally in the free time that becomes available.

... to shorten survival time and increase free time for all ... Yes. Probably would only require three hours a day if we all cooperated. The reason so many have to put in more time (for less compensation) is that most of the wealth is concentrated in the hands of a few . The "oligarchy" l...

Marv wants to harness the beauty and convert it into justice. Nice thought. However, the problem is, no matter what change you desire to implement, whether it be your own idea, anyone else's, or mine … (AHEM) MY STANDARD RESPONSE TO THE HUMAN CONDITION (The "YOU" applies generally, and ...
