Pensamentos.me/VEM comigo!

Uma relação saudável, ela nunca irá causar dor. Evidente que, cada casal, tem os seus problemas. É natural que tenham. Mas essas pessoas sabem dialogar de uma forma que, isso não venha extrapolar limites, nem machucar o outro, ou mesmo “faltar com respeito com a outra pessoa”. Porém, não se nota a mesma coisa diante de relacionamentos abusivos. Neste tipo de relação, observa que os parceiros extrapolam limites, agem com falta de respeito, e na maioria dos casos, se constata agressão física. Isso, porque nem se coloca, a questão das agressões psicologicas, e a violência sexual. Voce entende? Quando se fala sobre as características desses relacionamentos, há homens que acham que existem colocações exageradas diante dessa realidade Eu pergunto ” Onde?” Se a manipulação e o excesso de controle estão presentes diante dessas histórias?! Há de fato exageros ou as estáticas estão erradas?
As estatísticas estão erradas? Pouco acredito nessa…

Do Better Project web page creation request

Inspiring Critical Thinking and Community via Books, Lessons, and Story

      Has anyone got the time/energy to do this:

     We “need a landing page that is just about Project Do Better.  Just a simple page that has a big picture explanation (preferably including visual formats like an infographic), the option to click for more detailed explanations, social media graphics & suggested text for spreading the word, and a forum where the community of volunteers comes together to work on the project. This could be a simple website made on Squarespace or perhaps a LinkTree page. “

    for the project, as a free site?

Blog Etiquette — A Follow-Up

Filosofa's Word

Earlier today I published a post about free speech and how it is so often being abused by those too rude or ignorant to treat people with a modicum of respect.  In response to my post, I had two rude comments from my old friend Scott (sklawlor), not unexpectedly.  Last week, I asked Scott to please do us both a favour and stop reading my blog.  I warned that if he continued, I would censor or ban his comments.  Well, he continued, and as I mulled over whether to completely ban him or simply send all his future comments to moderation, I noticed a comment from another reader, Professor Taboo, with a link to his post of December 2019 about “appropriate censorship of bigoted non-sensical comments here by indecent comments by indecent, childish Commenters”.  In his post, which I encourage each of you to read, the Prof suggests…

Éxodos o invasiones

La colonización, el desplazamiento de seres humanos de una región a otra por diferentes motivos, las mezclas raciales y la culturización entre los pueblos, no es un fenómeno reciente en el mundo; se trata de un proceso bastante antiguo, unas veces provocado por el interés de descubrir otras tierras y nuevas oportunidades o por conquistas, guerras y situaciones emergentes, y algunas más, en tanto, por los intercambios naturales en los seres humanos. No obstante, el paisaje deplorable de caravanas que hoy vemos en el paisaje global, resulta aterrador y preocupante porque no se trata de éxodos provocados por condiciones naturales o emergentes. sino por situaciones planeadas con la intención de desequilibrar a las naciones y propiciar caos, delincuencia, contagios sanitarios, desórdenes, crisis y desabasto. Existe un plan diseñado estratégicamente, un proyecto orientado a desestabilizar la armonía, el equilibrio, la…

Cuando la insignificancia se siente deidad

Tan insignificantes son, que apenas conocen y manipulan una porción minúscula de la vida y del universo, y se sienten dioses, deidades capaces de alterar, deformar, controlar y destruir a la humanidad. Lamentablemente, la ciencia se encuentra encarcelada; es rehén de científicos mercenarios y sin escrúpulos, al servicio de una élite poderosa económica, política y militarmente, con intereses y objetivos despiadados. Son ellos quienes, respaldados por los dueños del poder global, están atentando contra millones de seres humanos en el mundo. El conocimiento es ambivalente y, por lo mismo, es posible utilizarlo para bien o para mal, y lo que está haciendo la comunidad científica a la que me refiero, que es la que recibe el apoyo de la élite mundial, es dedicarla a lo negativo, a desgarrar a millones de personas, a contaminar, a alterar el orden de…
