Tagging Everyone at Birth to Control Everyone’s Life … & Death

Tuesday, May 22nd, 2012

That is the newest futuristic idea on BBC Future by Sci-Fi novelist Elizabeth Moon: “If I were empress of the Universe I would insist on every individual having a unique ID permanently attached – a barcode if you will…
“It would be imprinted on everyone at birth…
“Having such a unique barcode would have many advantages. In war soldiers could easily differentiate legitimate targets…”.

Ayn Rand: An Average Savage Like the Rest of Us

Friday, February 24th, 2012

My knowledge about Ayn Rand’s way of thinking comes mostly from Atlas Shrugged, one of her most influential novels which I just finished reading; the rest comes from a few articles I read & videos I watched on the Internet.

Can You Blame Someone for Driving Drunk?

Tuesday, March 25th, 2008

I don’t drink so I allow myself to say this :twisted:

They are not in their normal state & don’t have all their mind, they shouldn’t be responsible then as the act of drinking is not illegal in itself. A kid is not responsible as an adult because of their immaturity, so are mad men or those who walk in their sleep, why is it different with drunkards? Why is it a crime to drive drunk? Why not also a crime for driving asleep? To drink is as legal as sleeping, isn’t it?

Mawlid En-Nabi MohamedI’m writing this because yesterday we celebrated the B.

Comparing Judaism, Christianity & Islam

Thursday, February 28th, 2008

CoexistI’ve read before some articles comparing Christianity & Islam, but rarely read about Judaism, today I just wanted to know some basic things about this last which led me to Convert.org & their article summarizing the differences between Judaism & Christianity, in fact there are more common points between Judaism & Islam than Judaism & Christianity.

The House of Representatives & the Senate Form the U.S. Congress

Thursday, February 21st, 2008

The House of RepresentativesThis maybe basic information for the U.S. citizen & other more aware of politics news than me, but I have to admit that I never looked closely into this, I always heard about the Congress, the Senate & Senators a bit about the House of Representatives, but only today I managed to link all that rather correctly ..
