Colin Stokes: How movies teach manhood
Clearly Hollywood is not the center of the art house film. It is a money making machine. It makes movies that sell to a formula that works. I would be more concerned with video games than films in the violence stakes. The tired old factoid of 1 in 5 females being subject to a sexual assault is statistical propaganda. It is all comes down to what is included as a definition of a sexual assault. It is a feminist trope for women good men bad. This talk is nothing more than an a negative advertisement against men for the revolutionary feminist front fifth column. A fifth column feminist ideology of hate that is responsible for great deal of the harms in society today. Core errors: 1) statistical factoid is incorrect and misleading. Lies damned lies and statistics. 2) correlation of the portrayal of fantasy gender stereotypes and the link to actual violence is specious at best. 3) The hero character and the damsel in distress is as old as time and been about for as long as people have told stories. See Paris and Helen of Troy.

Richard Wilkinson: How economic inequality harms societies
What world do we want to make for ourselves in the 21st century? More of the same is just patently not going to work. The Tellus Institute provides the following three visions for the future. * Conventional World – we make no change. Outcome continued struggles with social, political, economic, environmental, tensions, likely leading to collapse. * Barbarization – fortress worlds, the rich behind walled communities everyone else outside. Outcome constant conflict and enshrined inequality. * Great Transition – worlds citizens rise up and demand change. Over time a sustainable, inclusive civilization, humanity prospers in a world of limits and planetary interdependence. The Tellus Institute, future world visions. http://ow.ly/7klum

Artificial divisions between left and right are the problem. The people united over globe is the answer. I’m not sure Aaron, of The Storm Clouds are Gathering, has the answers either but at least he’s asking some questions. http://ow.ly/7k9DH We need the debate to come up with some solutions. To ignore the looming disasters is to be at best deluded, at worst to do nothing is criminally negligent.
