  1. So in other words you think that it would be the most natural thing for people to be looking out for their own? And do you think it's still possible (despite globalisation) to create a world in which such a political system/societal organisation exists? So the same powers that were responsible for destroying ancient empires are still at play today? Which similarities do you see between those historical events and now? And how do they tell people what's best for them?
  2. also thanks for this reference! I never read the book, so I guess this is my call to do it...
  3. Also, I was wondering, do you have a source for this or know where I could find it? I remember David Icke's lectures being on youtube but it seems that they were removed, or at least I can't find them anymore.
  4. That makes sense, thanks for clarifying! very nicely said. I might quote you on one day this if that's okay. Are you speaking of God in a Christian sense or a more 'universal' context (or different)? How would you describe your spirituality/spiritual belief? Sorry if this is too personal, I'm just interested in the language people use to describe this kind of experience. Oh I heard about Sheldrake and then completely forgot about him! His theories are interesting, they seem to go into the spheres of life that mainstream sciences often do not 'dare' to touc
  5. I don't mean to argue for socialism here, but I sometimes feel like capitalism is what makes people competitive and lack sympathy and empathy, so I would hope that if money wouldn't 'rule' us as much, we would automatically find ways to sympathise and cooperate peacefully. Obviously that wouldn't rid us of conflicts of interest, but maybe at least smoothen them out a little bit. What are your thoughts? Are there people who do the work Chomsky does better and do give the names and specifics, in your opinion? This is really interesting. I'm a little familiar with Ch
  6. @rideforeverthanks so much! This is really helpful and definitely something to consider. I think I have to digest this a little bit, especially because I have so much to do with studying and reading abstract theory/theories and it's therefore difficult to get used to the whole trial and error approach. So would you say that it is impossible to have knowledge about things that cannot directly be tested into being either true or false? For example (sorry, I can't come up with anything better) if humanity wants to find out whether "God" (whatever we may conceptualise God as) exists or
  7. Hi everyone, I’m new to this forum and I have a bit of a weird request and I thought it would be better to create a public thread instead of messaging people in private. My name is Maia and I’m an undergraduate student of cultural anthropology in the Netherlands and am currently conducting an ethnographic study into hegemonic truth regimes (so basically how power hierarchies or relations can lead to the establishment of an exclusive framework of determining what is ‘truth’ and what isn’t, which often is inherently based on what will help those in power remain in power)
