Unfurled No More Forever by Michael L. Eads (Red San Publishing, LLC) 4.1 Stars (9 Reviews)    Price verified 24 hours ago

Growing up in Seattle Washington, Mark was told from the nuns at Catholic school the Civil War was fought because of slavery. When Mark moved to Independence Missouri in the early 1970s, the teachers at public school told him the Civil War was fought to defend States' rights. Mark has an epiphany after he realizes almost everything he has been told from adults about the Civil War is a lie. Unfurled No More Forever describes the Civil War in a unique way, from the perspective of an eleven-year-old boy. Someone who doesn't understand the preconceived notions of grown-ups.

From the death of slavery to the creation of a new nation our forefathers truly intended, Unfurled No More Forever is how ...

Marginality: Addressing the Nexus of Poverty, Exclusion and Ecology by Joachim von Braun (Springer) 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 13 hours ago

This book takes a new approach on understanding causes of extreme poverty and promising actions to address it. Its focus is on marginality being a root cause of poverty and deprivation.

The book is research based with original empirical analyses at local, national, and local scales; book contributors are leaders in their fields and have backgrounds in different disciplines. An important message of the book is that economic and ecological approaches and institutional innovations need to be integrated to overcome marginality. The book will be a valuable source for development scholars and students, actors that design public policies, and for social innovators in the private sector and non-governmental organizations.?

The Annals of Petronius Jablonski: An Odyssey of Historic Proportions and Priceless Treasure of Philosophy by Petronius Jablonski (Chandelier Press) 3.1 Stars (3 Reviews)    Price verified 12 hours ago

When his classic Pontiac is abducted by a deity who lives in the depths of Lake Michigan, Petronius Jablonski is offered Enlightenment in compensation. To obtain it he must decipher the coded features of an odyssey. He neglects to share these minor details with his longsuffering girlfriend, Sandy, who accompanies him. Home-schooled by an eccentric father, Petronius holds the modern world in contempt, the demise of polytheism and eighteenth century English in general, the plague of democracy and "internets" in particular. Despairing of his ability to understand the journey and rarely paying attention, he engages the Reader's assistance. His propensity for digressions complicates the search for a solution while making a mockery of first person narration. He anticipates absurd questions and adds chapters in response, he accuses the Reader of being smitten with Sandy and makes her less attractive, and he revolutionizes Philosophy by superseding Occam's overrated Razor and Plato's ...

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) 4.5 Stars (84 Reviews)    Price verified 6 hours 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 ...

Suffering-Focused Ethics: Defense and Implications by Magnus Vinding (Ratio Ethica) 5.0 Stars (3 Reviews)    Price verified 14 hours ago

The reduction of suffering deserves special priority. Many ethical views support this claim, yet so far these have not been presented in a single place. Suffering-Focused Ethics provides the most comprehensive presentation of suffering-focused arguments and views to date, including a moral realist case for minimizing extreme suffering. The book then explores the all-important issue of how we can best reduce suffering in practice, and outlines a coherent and pragmatic path forward. "An inspiring book on the world's most important issue. Magnus Vinding makes a compelling case for suffering-focused ethics. Highly recommended." -- David Pearce, author of The Hedonistic Imperative and Can Biotechnology Abolish Suffering? "We live in a haze, oblivious to the tremendous moral reality around us. I know of no philosopher who makes the case more resoundingly than Magnus Vinding. In radiantly clear and honest prose, he demonstrates the overwhelming ethical priority of preventing suffering. ...

Excerpted from Antidisestablishmentarianism -- Hint. It's not what you think. It's a recipe for persecution, corruption and heresy. America's founding fathers understood that government must protect freedom, including the freedom to practice all religions. But they also understood that not all religions teach men how to be good citizens and make their countries prosper. The truth isn't out there somewhere, unfindable and unknowable. It's right here.
