Libération: "Μαστουρώστε υπεύθυνα"

Η εφημερίδα παίρνει θέση υπέρ της απελευθέρωσης, με αφορμή έρευνα 

«Αφιερωμένη» στα ναρκωτικά είναι η σημερινή έκδοση της γαλλικής εφημερίδας Liberation, η οποία προκαλεί με τον τίτλο της «Droguez-vous avec modération»- " "Μαστουρώστε υπεύθυνα". Η εφημερίδα παίρνει θέση υπέρ της απελευθέρωσης των ναρκωτικών, με αφορμή έρευνα γύρω από το ζήτημα. Στο κύριο άρθρο του, ο αναπληρωτής εκδότης της Libération υποστηρίζει ότι το κατασταλτικό κλίμα γύρω από τα ναρκωτικά αποτρέπει κάθε συζήτηση γύρω από τη χρήση και πως η ορθολογική χρήση κάνει καλό, κάτι που συμπεραίνει η έρευνα.

Παράξενες μικρές εφευρέσεις

Μπορεί κάποιες να τις βρείτε χρήσιμες. Δεν είναι η ανακάλυψη του τροχού αλλά σίγουρα είναι παράξενες και με ιδιαίτερο σχεδιασμό.

'Aliens could share more tech with us, if we warmonger less' - Former Canada Defense Minister

He was Canadian minister of Defense in 1960s, ruling over the country's armed forces during the time of the Cold War -- and when he retired he publicly stated that we are not alone in the universe, and some guests from outer space actually live here, on planet Earth. Is this fantasy? Is someone actually watching us? Today we ask the man who says UFOs are a serious business -- Paul Hellyer.

What if money was no object?

alan_watts-5British philosopher and writer Alan Watts (1915-1973), author of the cult-classic The Way of Zen, played a key role in popularizing Eastern philosophy in the West, like John Cage had done, in the middle of the 20th century.
In this short video, a fine complement to this omnibus of wisdom on how to find your purpose and do what you love, Watts asks the seemingly simple question of what you would do if money were no object:

“So I always ask the question: What would you like to do if money were no object? How would you really enjoy spending your life? Well it’s so amazing as the result of our kind of educational system, crowds of students say ‘Well, we’d like to be painters, we’d like to be poets, we’d like to be writers’ But as everybody knows you can’t earn any money that way! Another person says ‘Well I’d like to live an out-of-door’s life and ride horses.’ I said ‘You wanna teach in a riding school?’
Let’s go through with it. What do you want to do? When we finally got down to something which the individual says he really wants to do I will say to him ‘You do that! And forget the money!’ Because if you say that getting the money is the most important thing you will spend your life completely wasting your time! You’ll be doing things you don’t like doing in order to go on living – that is to go on doing things you don’t like doing! Which is stupid! Better to have a short life that is full of which you like doing then a long life spent in a miserable way. And after all, if you do really like what you are doing – it doesn’t really matter what it is – you can eventually become a master of it. It’s the only way of becoming the master of something, to be really with it. And then you will be able to get a good fee for whatever it is. So don’t worry too much, somebody is interested in everything. Anything you can be interested in, you’ll find others who are.
But it’s absolutely stupid to spend your time doing things you don’t like in order to go on spending things you don’t like, doing things you don’t like and to teach our children to follow the same track. See, what we are doing is we are bringing up children and educating to live the same sort of lifes we are living. In order they may justify themselves and find satisfaction in life by bringing up their children to bring up their children to do the same thing. So it’s all retch and no vomit – it never gets there! And so therefore it’s so important to consider this question:
What do I desire?” – Alan Watts
