A Living History

Every time we breathe we live a little history.  Living history.  History in the making.  And what kind of history are we making, in these days of our lives in this 21st century of the current era? Spectacular history?  Revolutionary history?  History to be proud of?  History we would want to be remembered for?  Stuff... Continue Reading →

COVID-19 Update, May 15, 2020

I am interested only in global statistics relating to the COVID-19 pandemic. National statistics are quite meaningless for comparison purposes other than against the background of the global situation due to the wide variability of national social and other conditions and population levels. So, the world reached a total of 300,000 COVID-19 deaths yesterday, three... Continue Reading →

New Beginning Required

The US must declare bankruptcy, as apparently threatened by Donald Trump some years ago.  I don't actually remember that but I'm sure it happpened - James Kunstler has a good memory for such things. But, erm... Jim?  JIm, Jim, Jim, Jim, Jim.  If the world ever got wind that was likely to happen, they would... Continue Reading →

It All Hinges On How You See Things – It’s Called ‘Perception’

I am sharing this story, not because I agree with everything said there, but because it asks questions - some answered correctly, some incorrectly, some unanswered.  Questions that Westerners would seldom, if ever, consider for themselves - and so it is an important document.  Perhaps, in the current circumstances, though it would hardly have been...
