A Utopian Life - Is It Possible? Experiment vs. Reality

"Well let me start out. By saying that dystopia n- fiction is kind of like science fiction. It's that are happening. That really could maybe perhaps happen. Like a world war or some kind of something that is apocalyptic and so that kind of thing can happen perhaps okay but utopian fiction is the exact opposite and it is something of a perfect world that we want to be in from the merriam webster dictionary we find this definition proposing or advocating ideal social and political schemes and one who believes in the perfection of human society. Well utopias work in two ways walking away from the extreme happiness of a utopia to perhaps find something better. Whatever that is or to walk away from an apocalyptic dystopia in life for the happiness and hope of a utopian life that is better but what is the utopian life. I am careful to note that. It is known that karl marx and frederick engels have studied a utopian way of life to some extent in the form of communism but first let's begin by finding out about what a utopia really is. Well you really is. Happiness and hope perhaps built on someone else's misery or knowing happiness by seeing or imagining the opposite. Well that sounds okay right. A lot of utopian concepts include simplifying. Human life sounds okay to being more in touch with religion or nature. Yep that sounds okay. Social improvement again sounds okay a visionary dreamlike ideal of political and social systems. That sounds okay to well. Utopia is often defined as a place of ideal perfection especially in law's government and social conditions a utopia described as an imaginary remote place. That's right and perhaps it has an impossible ideal of being visionary from the website classical wisdom dot com. I find this ever since there were people and places there has been desire for other different people and ideal perfect places. And what is this website talking about. They're talking about utopia such an important word and it means so much and our society today a word that has its origins and ancient greece which has a translation meeting of no place. Everything is a place but not utopia. Utopia is an imagined place of perfection. Don't forget that it's something that we strive for. Dust being there is no place such as this while writer sir thomas more was a philosophical genius and knew that he must be open to the idea of there being a better place or at least proving that there is no utopia no good place. In other words you see the word. Utopia is greek and was developed and fifteen sixteen. So when coming up with this concept of no place sir. Thomas more was having fun and poking a little fun and playing where the definition of a good place or no place meaning. No place is really perfect. The earliest generic use of utopia was for an imaginary and indefinitely. Remote place like an island kind of the current use of utopia referring to an ideal place or society was inspired by tyler. Moore's description the dreaming of a better world is almost as old as the world itself. We all have that dream even today as humans. We always desire better. Don't we i know i do. Let's look at what some of these concepts of utopia really are well and utopia. There is nothing private anywhere. The doors and the people's houses are open to anyone who wants to enter them the utopians either meals and public and where they all eat is in common place. It is a capital offense to engage in private discussions about public affairs and the business of politics can only be done and public

Born This Way Is Old Science

"The confirmation hearings for Judge Amy, CONYBEARE IT Senator Maisy. Hirano of Hawaii expressed outrage and shock that the nominee would use the term sexual preference instead of sexual orientation sexual preference announced senator. TORONTO. Is An offensive and outdated term used by anti lgbtq activists to suggest that sexual orientation is a choice. It is not after the Exchange Merriam Webster which apparently like most Americans had not gotten that Nemo with these new linguistic absolutes quickly changed the definition of sexual preference in its online dictionary. To, indicate that this wording is now offensive who knew we'll beyond the orwellianism of the literally changing the dictionary to support a political climb. It seems that Senator Hirano is the one who's actually behind the Times on this whole sexual orientation versus Sexual Preference Issue According to Dr Glenn Stanton, and then outstanding new article at public discourse. Judge Barrett's terminology is actually more in line with the latest thinking of leading gender scholars for example, Professor Sorry Van Anders at candidates Queens University has stated that. Quote sexual orientation as a term is increasingly seen as regressive because it belongs to the bio centralist project translating to English. What she saying is that the word orientation suggests that sexuality is hard wired and according to Professor Anders that's just not the consensus anymore among her peers though the whole born this way claim was once a very useful slogan to advance gay rights it no longer serves the goals of the LGBTQ. Movement years ago for instance, two scholars at Ucla question the concept of. Sexual. Orientation especially for women to instead that women's sexuality and Orientation Fluid Changeable over time and variable across social context other social scientists that Glenn Stanton quotes in his public discourse Article Call For a paradigm shift in how female sexuality is studied and described, and there've been plenty of surveys indicate that most self identified lesbians will have relationships with men. At some point. There's also a more obvious problem with the idea of a fixed orientation that's found in the very initials of the acronym especially the. Be The queue of lgbtq as political commentator Douglas Murray who identifies as gay by the way rights bisexuals continued to be viewed as some kind of betrayal from within the gay community gay men tend to believe that men who claim to be by are in fact, gays in some form of denial yet according to a pew research report from last summer bisexuals account for almost half of all LGBTQ adult in the US in fact, the authors of a new book published by Harvard University Press. Think. That male bisexuals are those who call themselves mostly straight vastly outnumber exclusively gay men. Thus they conclude the old system of gay straight or BI has as stanton puts, it outgrown its usefulness and even bigger challenge in the B. to the born. This way dogma is the T- gay rights and gay marriage were sold to us. The premise that homosexuality is hard wired maybe even genetic like race but anyone claiming transgender as an identity does. So in spite of physical and genetic realities not because. Of them and the CUE which usually stands for questioning well, that continues to evolve in both meaning and practice to include more and more sexual preferences as an identity. Well, one wonders whether Senator Horon would feel compelled to lecture the various social scientists that Glenn Stanton sites. In this article my suspicion is she wouldn't in fact, my suspicion is that Senate Arana was fed this talking point by an aide who's checking twitter and saw it as an opportunity to tar and feather judge Barrett as. A big what's ultimately revealed by her political posturing awoke language policing however is crucially important for all of us to now that phrases such a sexual orientation or sexual preference or whatever. The latest nomenclature are terms made up not to describe reality but to advance the idea that has revolutionized. So much of our culture on politics that sexual attraction and urge define and determine who we are. That's the idea we can never embrace even if we're facing outrage from a senator

"Today superstitions, Merriam Webster. Dictionary defines superstition as a belief or practice resulting from ignorance fear of the unknown trust in matchy or a false conception of causation. That said many people from around the world have a belief that a particular action or event will bring on bad luck and in some cases, even death the superstition about walking or not walking under a ladder has its early roots in religion. Many Christians believe in the Holy Trinity the Father, the Son and Holy Ghost in early times. This belief made the number three sacred along with its triangle. A ladder leading up against a wall forms the shape of a triangle and walking through it would be seen as breaking the trinity, a crime scene as. Blasphemous and one that most certainly would bring that luck breaking a mirror and receiving seven years bad. Luck can be traced back to the Greeks that it was unluckier even fatal to see once own reflection in. Freudian. Psychiatry and psychoanalysis. The term narcissism denotes an excessive degree of self esteem or involvement a condition that is usually a form of emotional immaturity. Why the seven years about luck out remains of mystery and Kenya seen an owl is considered to be a bad omen. It could indicate an upcoming funeral trouble with work or more or less anything unfortunate. It is also thought that shooting the OWL or shoeing it, killing it it away after seeing it or throwing salt in the fire will help to counteract the upcoming misery in putting this story together hundreds of superstitions were discovered and defined, but very few origins were explained yet. It seemed that many superstitions have some kind of religious foundation. For example, it was once believed that the devil follows behind your left shoulder and it's just waiting for an invitation to do. Something evil on your behalf is also believed that spilling salt costitution an invitation to the devil and the throwing salt over your left shoulder will blind him some superstitions come from war three on a match. It was said that the first to light the match captures the attention of the enemy. The same matches used to light a second cigarette takes aim and when the third soldier leaks into light up the enemy fires killing the third man on the match how. About the old saying step on a crack and break your mother's back. I found this rhythm from Arthur stringers lonely o'malley published in Nineteen Zero five step on a crack you'll break your mother's back step on a line. You'll break your father spine step in a ditch mother's knows will itch step in the dirt you'll terrier father's shirt.
