SHEEP HERDERS WOLVES: WHY WE ARE WHERE WE ARE: A MODERN AMERICAN FABLE by Scott Paradis (Cornerstone Achievements) 4.8 Stars (10 Reviews)    Price verified 6 minutes ago

At a bar with college friends celebrating the end of the fall term, Jeff hears José declare, "Society operates by two mandates: Might Makes Right, and the Many Serve the Few... " Troubled by those assertions Jeff questions, "What are you saying, José? That we're not a country governed by laws, offering equal opportunity for all?" "That's exactly what I'm saying my good man," José responds. "Throughout all of human history, the masses have served the few. The peasants have always served the powerful - those bold enough to seize power. Times haven't changed. Human nature hasn't changed. That we acquire debt and shackle ourselves in servitude is not by happenstance. The system always evolves to ensure the many serve the few. We just happen to be the many." Home for winter break, Jeff discusses José assertions with his grandfather, Papa. Over a cribbage match Papa shares an illuminating tale of creation: SHEEP, HERDERS, WOLVES to explain why we are where we are and who really possesses the power. "Thought-provoking, scary and inspiring all at the same time." Sheep, Herders, Wolves reveals the prevailing truth about our divisive politics and our winner-take-all economics, ultimately reminding us: the power rests with the people and it's up to the people to use that power well.

BANKRUPTING THE THIRD WORLD: How the Global Elite Drown Poor Nations in a Sea of Debt (The Underground Knowledge Series Book 6) by James Morcan (Sterling Gate Books) 4.2 Stars (14 Reviews)    Price verified 6 minutes ago

Dedicated to the impoverished in forgotten places of the world, this book questions whether the likes of the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund, the United States Agency for International Development and other big international aid organizations help or hinder the world's poorest people. It also questions whether the aid packages provided are genuine or whether they are scams designed to subjugate Third World countries. BANKRUPTING THE THIRD WORLD: How the Global Elite Drown Poor Nations in a Sea of Debt, by novelists, filmmakers and independent researchers James Morcan & Lance Morcan, exposes the culture of corruption within the aforementioned aid organizations and the arrogance with which they treat their Third World 'clients.' The Morcans reveal there's a nefarious hidden agenda at play whereby the 'generosity' extended by international aid organisations in assisting the development of the Third World and providing relief in the event of natural disasters comes with serious strings attached. Strings designed to fleece vulnerable nations. The reader is reminded the economic hit men popularized in John Perkins' 2004 bestseller 'Confessions of an Economic Hit Man' are still alive and well - in Africa in particular. BANKRUPTING THE THIRD WORLD puts two poverty-stricken nations under the magnifying glass to reveal the long-term impact of being the recipient of substantial financial aid from the West. The resulting debt accrued by these nations may surprise even the most skeptical reader. In writing this book, the authors were motivated by one sickening statistic: 21,000 people die from starvation every day. That's one person every four seconds! More sickening is the fact such deaths are unnecessary given there is more than enough wealth in the world for everyone to at least receive the basic necessities of life, and more than enough in the Third World for it to organically sustain itself. By the time you get to the end of this book you'll see ...

Architecture of a Technodemocracy: How Technology and Democracy Can Revolutionize Governments, Empower the 100%, and End the 1% System by Jason M. Hanania (technodemocracy.us) 4.4 Stars (77 Reviews)    Price verified 6 minutes ago

The world is primed for radical changes in government where each of us has an equal voice and all are held accountable. In Architecture of a Technodemocracy, Hanania provides a detailed blueprint on how to leverage current government processes, communications systems, and blockchain security to take the next step in the evolution of human government. By harnessing technology that already exists, we can nonviolently reshape our respective governments. The cooperation of modern politicians is not a requirement. A technodemocracy can be created without spending any tax dollars, passing any new laws, or otherwise turning to career politicians for leadership. Like Bitcoin, technodemocracy uses readily available technologies to decentralize power from the 1% to the 100%. Its principles can be applied to any nation. Despite being drafted more than 200 years ago, the Constitution enables a U.S. technodemocratic republic. No nation in history has ever had such an absolute straightaway to a 100% democratic government -- the opportunity to revolutionize society, economy, and environment without using violence. Through illustrations, examples, and analogies, Architecture of a Technodemocracy provides an elegantly simple method for decentralizing power to 100% of the American people and, in the process, ending the U.S. political party system. ABOUT THE AUTHOR Jason M. Hanania is an attorney, an engineer, and a former U.S. government employee. He ran for the U.S. Senate in 2016 as the first technodemocratic candidate. PREFACE In 2016, I ran for the U.S. Senate as the first technodemocratic candidate. During that process, I received hundreds of questions. Architecture of a Technodemocracy answers those questions. This book is organized into four parts: I. Government Requirements II. Legal Requirements III. Technical Requirements IV. Social Requirements Democracy requires that the four powers of government be decentralized equally to those governed. Part I looks at ...

Where Are the Spooky Books? How to Genrefy Your Library: Weeding, Moving, and Genrefying by Brenda DeHaan (Jahva Bear Publishing) 4.1 Stars (5 Reviews)    Price verified 23 hours ago

Are you wondering if you should genrefy your library and what's the easiest way to do it? Do you need to move your library because of getting new flooring, remodeling, or getting a new space? Do you need some guidelines as to which books you should weed? This book will help answer those questions. After hearing "Where are the spooky books?" countless times over the years, the author genrefied her library. Now the beloved spooky books are in one spot, including supernatural fiction and nonfiction shelved together. All sorts of genres and subjects were reorganized in an easily accessible manner. Patrons can quickly find what they'd like to read. Shelving is faster also. Best of all, books that had been overlooked for years suddenly started circulating. In addition to explanations of how an elementary and a secondary library each arranged by the Dewey Decimal System became one genrefied K-12 library, many photographs document the process. The new library is a hybrid system of genrefication and Dewey Decimal. Genrefying has helped to build a reading culture, and books that had been previously overlooked for many years were suddenly being checked out. If not sure about genrefying your library, mini-genrefication ideas are also included. Seeing how someone else does something can make it easier to determine what is the best route for you and your library. There's not just one right way to genrefy. There's not just one right way to organize your library, regardless of which system you use. This book starts with one way that worked for one librarian who encourages you to find your own way. This book was updated in September 2019 after the author genrefied her second school's library. She keeps learning and is happy to share her lessons with you (leading to another update in February 2020). Also included is an activity using genre bookmarks to acclimate your students to genrefication. The book contains many tips if you ever have to box up your library to move or ...

Equally important to making money is not losing money. Some people underestimate how lack of "SocialSavvy-ness" can actually cost them, when it comes to what type of social media content they are sharing and where. How can you use social media to find common ground and strategic partnerships in alignment with your own messaging? How can you get loyal supporters and avoid boycotts & "cancel elations" and what are the best ways to avoid or stir up controversy? What can you share daily, weekly and monthly with consistency that will add value and enjoyment without creating (too much) additional work or stress to your existing workflow? Do you use social media to keep in touch with friends and family and/or to promote and conduct business online? If you are attempting to make even one dollar in any way through the internet, there are ethics that go along with posts, regardless of how regulated or unregulated the platform itself may be.

A chapbook sized edition (35 pages) that will leave the reader with much imagery and food for thought. From a reader's review: "William Cook joins the Modernism School of Poetry. From Wiki: "For the modernists, it was essential to move away from the merely personal towards an intellectual statement that poetry could make about the world." Thus William combines a writing style of prose and poetry to weave an intellectual tapestry, slipping his words in and out of subjective and objective observations, pulling and pushing the reader to envision the completed tapestry while savoring the in's and out's of the words themselves, much as we watch a movie without thinking about the camera work or actor interpretations of the screenplay. As Peter Gabriel points out in The Cinema Show regarding the use of cosmetics: "Concealing to reveal." Let's consider the "The edge of the night" from MOMENT OF FREEDOM: Selected Poetry. First off, two notes: the title Moment of Freedom is ironic in that the title indirectly states, a lifetime of slavery to the "moment of freedom", much as the term "a cloudless clim" from Lord Byron, must incorporate "cloud" to denote an empty sky: an image to convey emptiness rather than simply using the unpoetic "empty" to state such. Second, the poem's title capitalizes the article but not the noun or prepositional phrase, combining poetic license with standard grammatical rule (namely "The", the first word in the line, must be capitalized). The intellectualizing has begun; William flaunts the world's rules by obeying them as he pleases, this, a moment of freedom. To discuss William's deliberate misuse of grammar would be folly as it is part ...

The 80%: How Conservative Evangelicals Prove We're Moral Relativists by J.G. Elliot 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 6 minutes ago

We conservative Evangelical Christians think we have a corner on the market when it comes to morality. We think we hold a holiness and integrity the rest of the world does not. This is a story of how God revealed my own sinfulness and the sinfulness of my community through various situations and events. The book explores various moral scenarios revolving around grace, forgiveness, love, and generosity. It also delves into what most consider morally gray conundrums, like whether aborting an ectopic pregnancy or lying to save lives is morally justified. It is my hope that through my own confessions of wrongdoing and by exploring the implications our moral concessions have for our testimony to Christ, other conservative Evangelicals will be convicted in like manner.

Political Potpourri – 2001-2010 Decade to Disaster by Bob Olson (Red San Publishing) 3.0 Stars (2 Reviews)    Price verified 17 hours ago

Political Potpourri - 2001-2010 Decade to Disaster presents editorial essays reviewing catastrophic Federal policies and practices throughout this decade - practices reminiscent of the strategies of Herbert Hoover favoring big wealth and creating the Great Depression.

These political zealots sabotage expensive but necessary policies to provide employment and security for working class Americans. They continue to espouse a path of greed rewarding only the 1 to 2% who own 80% our wealth. Political Potpourri - 2001-2010 Decade to Disaster chronologically records the path of misdirection America has followed after 9/11/01 and offers common sense remedies.

The Crucial Time of Being a Woman by saiba cassone 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 6 minutes ago

I live in the San Francisco Bay Area. It's been a long journey from my birthplace in Ethiopia with Italian parents. My father was in Mussolini's army. They returned to Italy when I was three years old, and I grew up near Florence. I came to the United States at age twenty. My journey may be considered contrary to the usual religious teachings based on blind faith. In my writings, I have portrayed the universal struggles mankind must endure before reaching a real repose of the heart. I hope that the average reader will develop more faith in herself/himself as well as security against the forces encountered in everyday living. For truth can flow and be a friend to the unknown forces from within and without.

WALLS: Why Racism and Sexism don't matter...as much by Josh Nsangi (RB Publishers) 5.0 Stars (2 Reviews)    Price verified 6 minutes ago

WALLS: Why Racism and Sexism don't matter... As Much "Are our political leaders the only ones significantly shaping the course taken by our post-modern civilizations? Now, more than ever, the notion of "puppet leaders", although extreme, and somewhat inaccurate, is often the go-to concept, for the frustrated working-class person, who not only lost his/her job but likewise their life-long savings, in an economic crash, of which, little responsibility was theirs in bringing about. In Walls, although the author alludes to elite-rule, both political and socioeconomic in kind, he shies away from economic and financial jargon for his explanations, instead relying on anthropological, historical and sociological approaches. The book attempts to illustrate that the frictions within factions in society, between whites and non-whites, men and women, are resultant from wealth disparities within the society, or rather, that, it boils down to jealousy on one side and greed on the other. Thus, the author paints a vivid sketch of how notions of racial, as gender antagonisms, can be attributed to the inherent exploitative methods of rule, by the political, 'power' and socioeconomic elites. This rule is made possible by the initial disparities of wealth, which, over time, and when subjected to concerted efforts of "game rigging" by several actors, engenders power. A few of the topics covered: *What is- and is not- Race? * What is- and is not- Racism? *Race, Racism, and Inequality. *Postmodern Feminism: Some of the Theory and its Limitations *Power *Hegemony *Propaganda and perceptions *Democracy promotion...

Crossing the Creek: The Literary Friendship of Zora Neale Hurston and Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings by Anna Lillios (University Press of Florida) 2.9 Stars (9 Reviews)    Price verified 9 hours ago

"In this fascinating and insightful book, Anna Lillios deepens our understanding of the complexity of the friendship between two of America's most beloved Southern female writers."--Virginia L. Moylan, author of Zora Neale Hurston's Final Decade One of the twentieth century's most intriguing and complicated literary friendships was that between Zora Neale Hurston and Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings. In death, their reputations have reversed, but in the early 1940s Rawlings had already achieved wild success with her best-selling and Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, The Yearling, while Hurston had published Their Eyes Were Watching God to unfavorable critical reviews. When they met, both were at the height of their literary powers. Hurston appears to have sought out Rawlings as a writer who could understand her talent and as a potential patron and champion. Rawlings did become an advocate for Hurston, and by all accounts a warm friendship developed between the two. Yet at every turn, Rawlings's own racism and the societal norms of the Jim Crow South loomed on the horizon, until her friendship with Hurston transformed Rawlings's views on the subject and made her an advocate for racial equality. Anna Lillios's Crossing the Creek is the first book to examine the productive and complex relationship between these two major figures. Is there truth to the story that Hurston offered to work as Rawlings's maid? Why did Rawlings host a tea for Hurston in St. Augustine? In what ways did each write the friendship into their novels? Using interviews with individuals who knew both women, as well as incisive readings of surviving letters, Lillios examines these questions and many others in this remarkable book.

Exploring the Mind: Discovering Humps and How they shape us by Gary W. Cross Price verified 10 hours ago

The mind is perhaps the most complex thing in the universe. Use it well and we can be wise, and help make a good life for our self and those around us. Use it poorly and... Yet we spend little time, if any, trying to understand our mind and how to better use it. In this book, we explore the mind, so that we may better understand it, and thus better use it. Explorations are offered throughout the book to help you, the reader, to explore the mind yourself. When you explore something yourself (rather than just read the results of others' explorations) your understanding will be much deeper, you will better remember what has been explored, and most importantly, you will be more likely to utilize the knowledge that you gain - in this case, to better use your mind and to have a better life. In the initial explorations, you will discover what features you have in your mind. Importantly, we are not exploring the physical features of our brains (such as neurons, the cortex, thalamus, amygdala... ). In this book, we restrict our explorations to those features in our minds that we can personally explore, such as our thoughts, memories and feelings. Next you will discover humps - what I consider to be the most important features of the mind. We all have humps, many of them. Mostly we are unaware of them, and unaware of what enormous effects they have on us. Understand the characteristics of humps, and you understand the characteristics of your mind! Next you will discover why it is important to know about your humps. You discover that your humps shape what you think, feel, desire, dislike, look at, expectations, say and do. Finally, you explore other humps and how they shape your humps. Other humps include the humps of other people, the humps in your cultures and the humps (or patterns) in the world around you. You will discover how these other humps shape your own humps, and thus play a large part in shaping your mind and your reality. This book is part of the series ...

Born New: How to See the Familiar with New Eyes, Embrace the Magic of the Present Moment, Experience Satisfaction and Joy Like Never Before by Sage Wilcox (Find Your Way Publishing, Inc.) 4.0 Stars (2 Reviews)    Price verified one hour ago

Self-Help, Inspiration Do you know that your brain's main goal is survival? Survival is good, but there's so much more available to you. When you learn to embrace the power of the present moment, you activate and direct your conscious mind to what it does best and leaves the subconscious mind to what it does best. When you learn to activate both sides, you master your universe - you naturally invoke the laws of attraction, you immerse your being with the universe and your path takes on a different journey. This book will show you how. The present moment is not a consequence, it is in and of itself, and you should treat it such, without worry, malice or prejudice. Every theory and practice of self-improvement rests on this one single truth - the power of being in the present moment, the here and now. Without it, none of the other paths to self-realization, self-actualization, and self-improvement can exist. Learning to truly live in the moment is the ultimate power and any person can develop it; it is a power that we are all born with but soon lose due to fear, worry, memory, and the desire to survive, which we do at the expense of living. As we trace a course through this book, we will lay out the various steps to return to residing and fulfilling the potential of the present moment. With this book: ?You'll learn how to savor everyday things with new eyes and a fresh perspective. ?You'll begin to experience the many rewards that come once you understand and start applying these simple ideas. ?You'll discover exactly what living in the moment is and be able to recognize the power and magic that comes from doing so. ?You'll see that everything you need is already within you - your six senses - all you have to do is apply the simple steps in this book, and then reap the many benefits!

Above Life’s Turmoil by James Allen 4.7 Stars (28 Reviews)    Price verified 6 minutes ago

We cannot alter external things, nor shape other people to our liking, nor mould the world to our wishes but we can alter internal things, our desires, passions, thoughts, we can shape our liking to other people, and we can mould the inner world of our own mind in accordance with wisdom, and so reconcile it to the outer world if men and things. The turmoil of the world we cannot avoid, but the disturbances of mind we can overcome. The duties and difficulties of life claim our attention, but we can rise above all anxiety concerning them. Surrounded by noise, we can yet have a quiet mind; involved in responsibilities, the heart can be at rest; in the midst of strife, we can know the abiding peace. The twenty pieces which comprise this book, unrelated as some of them are in the letter, will be found to be harmonious in the spirit, in that they point the reader towards those heights of self-knowledge and self-conquest which, rising above the turbulance of the world, lift their peaks where the Heavenly Silence reigns.

Stoicism: A Definitive Beginners Guide to Apply Stoicism Philosophy in Everyday Life. Gain Wisdom and Improve your Confidence, Resilience and ... by John Harper 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 24 hours ago

Would you like to never fall into reaction to emotions? Wouldn't it feel nice to instead maintain a sense of logic and rationality at all times? When the winds of passion blow, you would stand firm against them, holding tight to what makes sense, resisting emotions as temporary and misleading. If you are unfamiliar with Stoic philosophy then it entails all this, this mindset can come across as cold, but within Stoic philosophy, it is admirable. Maintaining one's calm, Stoics believe, is a point of pride. Just as Stoic philosophers reject unnecessary excitement, they reject desire and fear outright as well. Anything that tilts the mind or sways the spirit, anything that could prejudice someone against reason, it is all bad. There is no gray area here for Stoics, who view desire and fear as tainting forces, evils that separate us from virtue. If we are to live right, then we must make ourselves aware of desire and fear as they arise and then put them away, leave them in their place, do whatever we need to do to acknowledge them and then prevent them from affecting our thought processes and decision making. Does this process probably sound familiar? Well, if you have ever practiced mindfulness, stoic philosophy emphasizes accepting the moment as it is - and accepting the moment as a gift in and of itself. So, instead of looking for things to fill our time, Stoic philosophers would express gratitude for the fullness of time as it is, recognizing the wonder in every moment. Did you know that stoicism was deliberately created to be comprehensible, logical, and beneficial? The study of Stoicism does not require an entirely new lexicon or hours of meditation. This offers an instant, useful, and practical way of finding tranquility and enhancing character strengths which you will find this in the book as follows: • What is stoicism • History of stoicism. • Stoicism and the universe. • Most famous stoicism philosopher. • Stoicism and happiness. • ...

The Way of the Stoic Epictetus: A Short Introduction by Gary W Cross 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 6 minutes ago

Epictetus was an ancient Greek Stoic philosopher. Arrian (Epictetus's biographer) tells us that Epictetus 'had no other purpose than to move the minds of those listening to what is best', and that to achieve the best is to be calm, happy and free. This book offers a short introduction to Epictetus' way to achieving these - including the problems that Epictetus identifies as the reasons for us not achieving these; the directions that Epictetus offers to help us to achieve these; and finally, the strategies that Epictetus offers to help us to overcome the problems, to successfully follow his directions and ultimately to be calm, happy and free. This book is part of the series 'Ways of the World' in which I explore the different ways of the world that have helped to shape my mind, and I suggest, the minds of many in the world today. The series already includes a book on Epictetus, namely, 'Exploring the Way of Epictetus', in which I allow Epictetus to explain in detail the way of the Stoic. 'Exploring the Way of Epictetus' includes topics not included in this current book, more quotations and the basis for my translations. My aim in this current book is to present a short, easily assimilated overview of the way of Epictetus.

The Eight pillars of prosperity by James Allen 4.2 Stars (60 Reviews)    Price verified 10 hours ago

It is popularly supposed that a greater prosperity for individuals or nations can only come through a political and social reconstruction. This cannot be true apart from the practice of the moral virtues in the individuals that comprise a nation. Better laws and social conditions will always follow a higher realization of morality among the individuals of a community, but no legal enactment can give prosperity to, nay it cannot prevent the ruin of, a man or a nation that has become lax and decadent in the pursuit and practice of virtue. The moral virtues are the foundation and support of prosperity as they are the soul of greatness. They endure forever, and all the works of man which endure are built upon them. Without them there is neither strength, stability, nor substantial reality, but only ephemeral dreams. To find moral principles is to have found prosperity, greatness, truth, and is therefore to be strong, valiant, joyful and free.

Her controversial views on these subjects will inspire thought about what the future is likely to bring.

Making Moral Judgments: Psychological Perspectives on Morality, Ethics, and Decision-Making by Donelson Forsyth (Routledge) 4.2 Stars (5 Reviews)    Price verified 22 hours ago

This fascinating new book examines diversity in moral judgements, drawing on recent work in social, personality, and evolutionary psychology, reviewing the factors that influence the moral judgments people make. Why do reasonable people so often disagree when drawing distinctions between what is morally right and wrong? Even when individuals agree in their moral pronouncements, they may employ different standards, different comparative processes, or entirely disparate criteria in their judgments. Examining the sources of this variety, the author expertly explores morality using ethics position theory, alongside other theoretical perspectives in moral psychology, and shows how it can relate to contemporary social issues from abortion to premarital sex to human rights. Also featuring a chapter on applied contexts, using the theory of ethics positions to gain insights into the moral choices and actions of individuals, groups, and organizations in educational, research, political, medical, and business settings, the book offers answers that apply across individuals, communities, and cultures. Investigating the relationship between people's personal moral philosophies and their ethical thoughts, emotions, and actions, this is fascinating reading for students and academics from psychology and philosophy and anyone interested in morality and ethics.

This books is a stimulating analysis combining cutting edge research and the thinking of modern and ancient philosophers on the elusive topic of "self". Where resides the self? and a host of other questions have baffled man over the past millennia. The writer is realistic enough not to even suggest the possibility of solving all the mysteries. But he has done a very good job of identifying the components of the jig saw puzzle. A part of the big picture emerges and the reader reaches a radically new and higher level of comprehension toward the end of the book. The written style is unique and seems like "here are the facts; you take it on from there".
