Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

One of the issues I think nobody has touched yet is what are we referring to when

we say women's empowerment.

From one perspective, the western one, what it means is that women

should have all the apparent freedoms of men.

What we ended up with after the "feminist revolution" is

both parents working to meet the household's needs,

when before it in the 50's one wage earner would suffice,

Jeez, that's Fantastic!!, we have achieved working the double for the same income!!

And now we don't even have to raise our children,

because we simply don't have time for that.


In hindsight, I can see how wanting the same freedoms of slaves,

got us to be slaves for half the price,

double the slaves supply, and the slave price gets to be half.


It's time for Humanism, ladies and gentlemen.

I love it. my wife has been coming to this realization recently. being equal in a man's world means molding yourself to the image of a man. much better to wrestle the world back to being a being's world...

I see humanism as being one step short...sure, lets embrace humanism for the short term...but how about

LIFISM - total and unconditional respect for all aspects of life and being...that would truly be an evolution of our collective limits

Our dependence on a system doesn't make us slaves, because in turn the system is just as dependent on us. If we all stopped going to work the wh*** system would crash--but we would all starve.

interesting point of view, so do you believe that the feminist revolution was a good thing?

Are you aware the Gloria Steinem, one of the fouders of the feminist movement
was a CIA operative?
Comment by Michael Texeira on April 12, 2010 at 5:27pm
we wouldn't starve if we stopped going to work. many people work creating toys that sit on shelves, or shuffling papers around for bureaucrats and white collar thieves. many jobs in the economy add nothing of worth to the world, nor provide anything that is needed. if people doing these jobs stopped working, then those particular industries would fail, but power generation, food production and water purification would continue.

humanity is enslaved. this is true. the market system does not care about individuals. many posters on this site have posted extremely compelling information which very clearly shows how the central banking system was contrived in order to create the condition of humans being dependent on a fiat currency with no real value backing it. people all over the world work their a**** off to pay for the right to live on the planet where they were born, while the people they work for hoard the vast majority of wealth, and generate between themselves those figures which they then tell us are indicative of our social health. GDP is predominately determined by the investments and consumption patterns of a relative few. the purchasing and investment power of the wealthiest 10% of the world outweigh (IIRC) that of the lower 90%.

how does a system in which people work themselves to death for the right to buy toxic food and live in psychologically toxic conditions qualify as anything less than slavery....oh wait...you're right. slaves didn't have to pay for their room and board. what many people of the world are dealing with today is worse.

I like the experiment. lets all stop going to work and see if it crashes. if it does...lets collectively go back to work of our own volition, on our own motivation, and re-establish the lines of support for the world...we can cut the CEO's out in the meantime.

Well, Wintermute is correct, however, it is unlikely for use to all stop going to work unless there was reason enough to protest in that way. So, we are not slaves in the sense of being "owned", but you know, people say "you got owned, pwn" meaning they beat you. So, ya, we've been beat, and the banks own us all.

Whether empowering woman was encouraged deliberately to get more workers for the same price is debatable. It could be just a side effect of a maturing civilization. The need to work full time just to keep up is partly our choice, because we want to do better, and if we don't work to the max, someone else will and beat us to the goods, better housing, schools, etc. So it's a rat race, no doubt, but it is our choice to run. If we all slack off, we will all slow down, together.

So don't work so hard. Take it easy. Except, first we have to save the world.

Well, I'm glad somebody said it, Sarah.

Fourth of July on the Lake

This past weekend was the annual celebration at the lake house in Connecticut. It is amazing that the lake is still so clear and beautiful after all these years. The watershed association has done a wonderful job protecting these waters from the damaging effects of development.The wood grill was finally ready to cook on, so we didn't miss the propane tank fueled grill anymore. The food actually tasted fresher than in the past and was easy to keep fueled.Dad was very proud of the solar hybrid…See More

Stinging Nettle

In this blog post I will focus on a plant that is abundant in our nature, and which is immensely nutritious. It's of course the Stinging Nettle. Let's start with the chemical constituents of this plant:37 % Non-Nitrogen-Extracts19 - 29 % Ash9 - 21 % Fiber4 % Fat22 % ProteinOnce the leaves are drid, their protein content can reach an astounding 40 %, which is much higher than beef, which even under the best of circ***tances can never exceed 31 % protein. In addition the Stinging Nettle consists…See More

Future

Every country’s governments were crushed down at the same time. There were riots everywhere. All of the big company’s bosses were killed xdeadx in the riots. Troops fought each other everywhere. Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.
