- Journalist: Do you feel, however, that we're making progress in this country?
- Malcolm X: No, no. I will never say that progress is being made. If you stick a knife in my back 9 inches and pull it out 6 inches, that's not progress. If you pull it all the way out, that's not progress. Progress is healing the wound that the blow made. They won't even admit that the knife is there!
it’s probably a bad idea to talk about assassinating people when in a country that has a travel advisory for terrorism
Going to have to keep this in mind.
I wonder how many government-watch lists I’m on already..
In evaluating the human condition, it isn’t possible to overemphasize the significance of evolutionary theory. This well-supported scientific theory influences our behavior in ways most of us can’t begin to imagine. This article explores how evolution provides answers to questions we might not otherwise think to ask.
In the past 150 years evolutionary theory has moved from being a philosophical curiosity to becoming a precondition for understanding human behavior. There are certain aspects of our behavior that are easily explained and perfectly logical, while other aspects make no sense at all without the theoretical framework provided by evolution. This article reveals our connection with evolution, and through that connection, with all life on earth.
This article has some very interesting information regarding evolution, this is an absolute must-read for everybody out there. Easily one of the best articles I’ve ever read on the matter.
Sen. John Ensign, a Nevada Republican, has proposed amending the Espionage Act specifically to target WikiLeaks and other media organizations that “publish the name” of anyone “helping in our efforts against terrorism…”
However, given that WikiLeaks is an international news organization, Ensign’s proposal also raises the specter of some kind of global secrecy act that would criminalize any media outlet that discloses the name of anyone who has collaborated with U.S. intelligence agencies or the U.S. military anywhere in the world, regardless of the context.
Ensign’s idea is particularly breathtaking because during the long Cold War and today’s “war on terror,” many collaborators with the CIA and other U.S. agencies have been linked to drug trafficking, human rights abuses, military coups and even terrorism. Presumably, under Ensign’s plan, journalists around the world would face prosecution for making those connections.” —WikiLeaks Ban or Global Secrecy Act? (via ryking)
I knew I shouldn’t have eaten that shawarma. I knew it.
