The Noam Chomsky Channel

Where are his books?

Why not read them?

Same goes for his talks-monologues!

Why not watch the programme?

Are right wing groups really hating him?

Do Zionists hate him?

How much does Chomsky have to tolerate?

He is a very controversial figure.

As long as he keeps talking…

Will his leadership dissolve?

We are all genuinely afraid of terrorism.

Does he give us a better understanding?

Will we ever be able to laugh at our fears?

Is our solidarity being broken down?

Do we care anymore?

Are working people turning against their own interests?

What about drinking water?  The people next door?

Is this fear being manufactured?

Why not lead an activist life?

(All the above is reiterated from “Rebel Without A Pause.”)

Thanks, An Avid Fan, Michael.

Obesity Epidemic With A Radical Solution

Does a calorie in equal a calorie out?

Does a soft drink have anything to do with obesity?

There is a staggering global problem.

Sugar beverage is causing diabetes.

Food literally is making us fat.

The problem is not genetic.

You can eat well for less.

The epidemic is going on 30 years.

The answer is not less food and more exercise.

People don’t get fat because of shame and blame and lack of will power.

The sugar in different types of food is the problem.

A chronic dose dependant drug is sugar.

Sugar in any form is dangerous.

Metabolically, sugar without fibber is dangerous and alcohol converts to sugar.

Stop sugar and alcohol and drink water.

Stop eating processed foods like you would stop smoking cigarettes.

Candy is addictive.

Will power has nothing to do with it.

Junk food is everywhere.

In the end you end up in the worse public health epidemic of all time.

Defend yourself.

The WHO suggests eating less than 10 % sugar in your diet.

Without all the cost of processing we would have enough fruit and veggies to feed the planet.

Without all the dysfunction in the industry and government we could do anything.

Let’s talk about it.

Work for freedom by eating no sugar, alcohol or processed foods.

Don’t let government and industry dictate what you eat.

Don’t worry about exercise, just walk 20 minutes a day.  The key is to move against the bad food and eat no sugar.

Eat less cheese and eat more fibber.

Educate yourself to learn how to stop eating sugar, drinking alcohol and cheese.

Okay the industry and government are not doing this to harm us.

The need to economize outweighs public health

We are eating fast food to work out time management problems with overwork.

Legislation is causing us to be confused about going sugar and process free.

Fast food places are bad for our health.

Is our food safe?

What is food?  Sugar?  Alcohol? or unprocessed fruit and veggies.

Is the food industry safe?  How about our government?

Question your freedom and go sugar free today.

a day in the life

Wake up, get out of bed, meditate and make the best of this day.

Do my routine:  breakfast, and get ready for  work.  I need to fast when I do too much.  Or I need to feast when I do too little.

I walk to work.  I continue doing active meditation as I work.

As problems come up, I assess them and process them when I am able or put them on the back burner.

I journal out the rest.

I am still doing my routine through out this day.

I eat supper and go for a ride for about an hour around the neighbourhood.

I come home and get ready for the next day.  I read, write and exercise.

I go to sleep.

I get up and do it again.

The Cynic’s Way

They father everyone (or mother),

everyman is his son, every woman is his daughter.

This is his regard or how much he cares for them.

He lets them learn by making their own mistakes.

Further, the cynic’s body should be in great shape.

He needs a cleanliness that is rugged and attracts others.

 

I Solitude

Keeping connected with one’s inner world facilitates learning, thinking and innovation in this state.

 

II Law Of Nature

The best way to mimic God is to look and learn the rules that nature follows.

Water always runs to the lowest point.  It is a simple way to express the art of humility.

 

III God, Messenger Of

Teach your children when you are fully grown.

Learn to keep your house in order.

 

IV The Way

The way is everything.

The way is nothing.

 

V Calm, Still, Silent.

To be the student learn to teach.

Know your mind.  It is your library.

Be able to control your self.

 

VI Civil, Constant and Calm

A civilised man or woman is at home wherever they find themselves.

To find yourself is to know yourself.

Being the same all the time is keeping a good habit.

 

VII Rest and Relax

All the above is easier said than done.  That is why it is an opus.

A fruit will take some time to ripen before it is good to eat.

 

VIII Stay Vertical, Walk Hard, Hard Optimism

Be available for mobility, and practice walking to exercise all parts of the body mind and belief.

Practice the optimism you believe through all your ups and downs in life.

 

IX Inner Peace:  Quiet time is Important

Learn to meditate.

Be a Master Learner:  a teacher.

 

X Wake Up!

Don’t get in harms way.

Accept the information in the digital age, but don’t let technology take over your life.

Have a mentor:  alive or dead.

 

XI Purpose Is To Father Self (And Others Like The Yourself)

A cynic is not a god, an old man with a beard, a cane and a satchel.

But he will follow the right way to be with everything in his being. 

It will kill you or leave you maimed if you are not called.

Test your resolve before deciding to embark on such a mission.

Solitude With Care And Attention

There are many memories I have about being solitary and yet full of sense and wonder.  I don’t consider it a bad behaviour because I write.  My care and attention to what I read and write extend to the way I live and learn.  I am just rereading Solitude and A Return To The Self.  It is described as an insight to common sense.  And this is my definition of Solitude.  It is all about slowing down to be with yourself and returning to some common sense.  Perhaps, the writing I do needs to be about this topic.  But I can see it encapsulated in books like A Man In Full by Tom Wolfe.  I highly recommend either one of these books as a stepping stone to some good solitude.

Like most people I find little time or desire to ‘gaze at my navel’.  But like most people I tend to spend many hours doing chores that afford me time to notice my personal state of mind and choices and decisions I am making on the day-to-day basis.  I think I read books like the above to add fodder to my actions (be they behaviors, feelings, thoughts, beliefs or other).  I practice using common sense but the outcomes are not always on the mark.  My mistakes are like sign posts that I notice from time to time.  In this way I can work out some of what I need to do.  I want to learn from my errors, but I trip up as much or more than everyone else.
