The Personal Psychology of Sigmund Freud: Theory, Quotes, Biography, Facts
Breger was born and grew up in Los Angeles, California. He received his undergraduate education at Cornell University and U.C.L.A., following which he obtained his Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology at The Ohio State University in 1961. He then taught at the University of California, Berkeley, the University of California Medical School in San Francisco, and the University of Oregon. In 1970 Breger became Visiting Associate Professor of Psychology then Professor of Psychoanalytic Studies in the Humanities and Social Sciences Division of the California Institute of Technology. He graduated from the Southern California Psychoanalytic Institute in 1979, where he became a Training and Supervising Analyst and was the recipient of the Franz Alexander Essay Award and the Distinguished Teaching Award. In 1990, he resigned from that institution and, with a group of colleagues, created the Institute of Contemporary Psychoanalysis (ICP) where he was the Founding President from 1990 to 1993. ICP reflected Breger’s commitment to an open, democratic form of education: it is a non-hierarchical training institute, not affiliated with the American Psychoanalytic Association. He is the father of three grown children and two stepsons, married to Barbara Gale Breger; together, they have 13 grandchildren. Breger has been both a practicing psychotherapist and a faculty member at several universities where he carried out research on dreams, reformulations of psychoanalytic theory, psychotherapy process and outcome, personality development, and the application of psychoanalysis to literature. He has also published two biographies of Sigmund Freud. He has always taken a critical stance towards psychoanalysis, as revealed in most of his publications. His work on dreaming – using the REM techniques of monitoring sleep through the night – showed that dreams are symbolic attempts to master emotional conflicts that have been aroused during the pre-sleep period, in contrast to Freud’s wish fulfillment theory (see Function of Dreams, 1967). His work on personality development – as found in his book From Instinct to Identity – is an integration of theory and research from child development, John Bowlby, Erik Erikson, Harry Stack Sullivan, Freud, Jean Piaget, primate studies, and research on hunter-gatherer societies. The study of Dostoevsky treats him as a fellow “psychoanalyst” who has much to teach us rather than a patient to be “analyzed.” The two biographical studies of Freud bring out the personal – often traumatic – roots of what is valuable and problematic in psychoanalytic theory and therapy. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Louis_Breger

A celebration of the centenary of general relativity
Imperial hosted talks by Professors Fay Dowker and Jerome Gauntlett as part of the international celebrations of the 100th anniversary of Albert Einstein's Field Equations defining the Theory of General Relativity. Chaired by Imperial's Provost Professor James Stirling, with a message from Professor Stephen Hawking. Professors Dowker and Gauntlett were both members of Professor Hawking's research group at the University of Cambridge. The talks at the event: Inner space, outer space: A meditation on general relativity Professor Fay Dowker, Professor of Theoretical Physics Professor Dowker did her PhD in Cambridge under the supervision of Stephen Hawking, graduating in 1990. She has since held research positions at FermiLab (Chicago), University of California Santa Barbara and Caltech, before joining Queen Mary University of London and then Imperial in 2003. Her research focuses on the causal set approach to quantum gravity. Black holes and the unity of physics Professor Jerome Gauntlett, Head of the Theoretical Physics Group at Imperial College London Professor Gauntlett's research focuses on string theory, black holes and quantum field theory. He moved from Australia to Cambridge to carry out his PhD in Stephen Hawking’s Relativity Group, graduating in 1991. He then held research positions at the University of Chicago and Caltech before returning to the UK, first to Queen Mary University of London and then to Imperial in 2003. Jerome was the Theoretical Physics Consultant on the Oscar-winning film The Theory of Everything. Interact on social media via the hashtag #GR100. The Theoretical Physics Group at Imperial College London was founded in by Nobel Laureate Abdus Salam. The Group uncovers and investigates the fundamental laws of Nature that govern phenomena ranging from cosmology down to particle physics. Members of the Group carry out world-leading research into some of the most exciting areas of theoretical physics today, including string theory, quantum field theory, cosmology, quantum foundations and gravity. Research highlights include Salam being awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics in for his seminal work on unifying the electromagnetic force with the weak nuclear force. Group member Sir Tom Kibble was one of six scientists who discovered the mechanism behind symmetry breaking that eventually led to the discovery of the Higgs boson at the Large Hadron Collider in 2013.
How Marxist Theory is Currently Effectively Indoctrinating our Children's Public School System
Help us keep this channel producing REAL content for REAL people https://www.paypal.me/ConservativeResurge The cultural Marxism that our societies are infected with is a particularly Western phenomenon. After the Russian Revolution of 1917, Marxists in Europe believed that the dictatorship of the proletariat was at hand. They were wrong. The revolution failed to spread. In despair, and in one of Mussolini’s prisons, a young Italian socialist Antonio Gramsci wrote that the problem was the Christian bedrock of Western European cultures. He encouraged Marxists to develop a fifth column inside these countries to destroy the foundations of Western cultures. Only then would international socialism be achievable. This call to subversion was picked up by Marxist scholars based around the Institute for Social Research in Frankfurt, Germany. In the tumultuous milieu of Weimar Germany, theorists such as Max Horkheimer, Herbert Marcuse, Erich Fromm, Theodor Adorno and Georg Lukacs integrated the theories of Sigmund Freud with classical Marxism to develop the foundations of critical theory, deconstructionism, post-structuralism and postmodernism. Known as the Frankfurt School, many of these intellectuals fled Hitler’s Germany for the United States where they were welcomed by Progressives and socialist intellectuals. The theories of the Frankfurt School unified the vanguard of the 60’s countercultural movement and have since spread to every discipline in our universities, colleges and schools. These theories, which obsess about colonization, subjugation and oppression, have indeed colonized higher education in the West. Marxism is always cloaked in high-sounding utopian rhetoric. This is a ruse. What cultural Marxists seek has nothing to do with true diversity, social harmony or universal tolerance. They don’t want the races getting along. They seek power. The solution for the perceived injustices that Cultural Marxists have manufactured is radical social engineering. The power to carry out this social engineering must be given, of course, to a politically-correct elite determined to remake society along ideological lines. This is why cultural Marxists always seek to enter government, academe or influential positions in the media. In the process of remaking society, unsurprisingly, these Cultural Marxists gain enormous wealth, status and power. This is how careers and fortunes are made in the industry of grievance. It is also why Marxism is so appealing to the ambitious and unscrupulous. Thus it is no surprise that the groups which cultural Marxists have labelled victims are themselves now worse off than ever. The decline of black America over the last fifty years has been a modern tragedy. Across all metrics, black communities have been deteriorating. The solution loudly demanded by cultural-Marxist opportunists is always more of the same, thus accelerating the decline of these communities Marxism proved over the twentieth century that it is the deadliest and most destructive belief system on the planet. It has a body count beyond measure and has left a trail of brokenness, suffering and desolation wherever it has taken hold. Marxist ideology destroyed the traditional civilizations of Europe and Asia until they renounced it in the 1990’s. It is in the West that it has lived on in hybrid form, gnawing away at the fabric of our societies. That fabric will not hold forever. Every knee taken, every glass bottle thrown and every incitement to victimhood is another crack in the unity of the nation; and without unity there can be no United States.

2018 Arrow Lecture / Samuel Bowles
The Moral Economy: Why Good Incentives are No Substitute for Good Citizens Monday, February 5, 2018 Encina Hall, Bechtel Conference Center It is widely held today that in designing public policy and legal systems, we should assume that people --whether citizens, employees, business partners, or potential criminals -- are entirely self-interested and amoral. Given this assumption’s currency in legal, economic, and policy-making circles, it may seem odd that nobody really believes that people are really like that. Instead, the assumption of amoral self-interest has been advanced on grounds of prudence, not realism. But it is anything but prudent to let Homo economicus be the behavioral that underpins public policy. There are two reasons. First, the policies that follow from this paradigm sometimes make the assumption of universal amoral selfishness more nearly true than it might otherwise be: People sometimes act in more self-interested ways in the presence of incentives than in their absence. The reason, however, may not be incentives per se but instead, the pursuit of economic aggrandizement and control with which they are frequently associated. Second, fines, rewards, and other material inducements often do not work very well. No matter how cleverly designed, incentives cannot alone provide the foundations of good governance. An erosion of the ethical and other social motivations essential to good government could be an unintended cultural consequence of policies that economists have favored, including more extensive and better-defined private property rights, enhanced market competition, and the greater use of monetary incentives to guide individual behavior. I show that these and other policies advocated as necessary to the functioning of a market economy may also promote self-interest and undermine the means by which a society sustains a robust civic culture of cooperative and generous citizens; they may even compromise the social norms essential to the workings of markets themselves. Even more than in the past, high-performance knowledge-based economies today require the cultural underpinnings of social norms. Among these is the assurance that a handshake is indeed a handshake; where one doubts this, as Kenneth Arrow pointed out long ago, mutual gains from exchange may be limited by distrust. SAMUEL BOWLES is Research Professor at the Santa Fe Institute where he heads the Behavioral Sciences Program. He taught economics at Harvard from 1965 to 1973 and since then at the University of Massachusetts, where he is now emeritus professor, and at the University of Siena from 2002 to 2010, where he continues to occasionally teach. Bowles' current research also includes theoretical and empirical studies of political hierarchy and wealth inequality and their evolution over the very long run. His studies on cultural and genetic evolution have challenged the conventional economic assumption that people are motivated entirely by self-interest. Recent papers have also explored how organizations, communities and nations could be better governed in light of the fact that altruistic and ethical motives are common in most populations. The McCoy Family Center for Ethics in Society is committed to bringing ethical reflection to bear on important social problems through research, teaching, and engagement.

10. Personal identity, Part I: Identity across space and time and the soul theory
Death (PHIL 176) The lecture focuses on the question of the metaphysical key to personal identity. What does it mean for a person that presently exists to be the very same person in the future? The first approach to answering this question is the "soul theory," that is, the key to being the same person is having the same soul. Difficulties with that approach are then discussed, independent of the question whether souls exist or not. 00:00 - Chapter 1. Introduction 01:39 - Chapter 2. What Does It Mean to Survive?

14. Rights as Side Constraints and the Minimal State
Moral Foundations of Politics (PLSC 118) Today, Professor Shapiro dives more deeply into Robert Nozick's theory of the minimal, or night watchman, state. This formulation is not redistributive, nor does it consider rights as goals, but rather as side-constraints on what we can do. In other words, Nozick's is a deontological, not teleological, approach. However, the Achilles' heel of this formulation is the incorporation of independents, based on a system of compensation. Some people will opt not to enter into our hypothetical social contract, but for the dominant protective association to protect its members from the fear of these independents, they must be forced to incorporate. Nozick thinks that if members could compensate the independents for this rights violation, it would legitimize the state. Unfortunately, no one has ever solved the puzzle of compensation without some interpersonal comparison of utility. But another way to salvage Nozick's account is with the Kantian dictum "ought entails can," meaning that since independents cannot be tolerated, it cannot be an obligation not to violate their rights. But what if the independents could compensate the members for their fear? And couldn't this compensation model be used to justify the welfare state as well? Isn't the value of consent, in which Nozick's account is rooted, completely violated here? 00:00 - Chapter 1. Evolution of the State without Rights Violations 15:50 - Chapter 2.

Warburg Symposium Day 1- Classical & Renaissance Art
This two-day symposium explores Warburg's ideas and their adumbrations, e.g., his preoccupations with - and intuitions about - memory, both in relation to different forms of artistic creation and in anticipation of concepts related to neuroplasticity and neuroesthetics; the significance and fluency of the image - its elliptical and metaphoric functions - and of affect for the phenomena and qualia of chronology and memory, in concert with contemporary understanding of the dynamic unconscious; and the interdisciplinary mode of thought - the philosophical and art historical, cosmographic and historical - at the heart of Warburg's atlas. Schedule for Saturday, October 12th: 4:15 pm: Classical & Renaissance Art roundtable: Georges Didi-Huberman, Thomas DaCosta Kaufmann, François Quiviger, Dorothea Rockburne, and  Christopher Wood Georges Didi-Huberman, philosopher and art historian, teaches at the School for Advanced Studies in the Social Sciences (Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales) in Paris, where he has been a lecturer since 1990. He is a winner of the Distinguished Lifetime Achievement Award for Writing on Art given by the College Art Association. Thomas DaCosta Kaufmann is Frederick Marquand Professor of Art and Archaeology, Princeton University. He received degrees from Yale, the Warburg Institute, and Harvard, and has been awarded honorary doctorates by the Technical University, Dresden, and the Masaryk University, Brno. The holder of the Palacký medal from the Czech Academy of Sciences, he is a member of the Swedish, Flemish, and Polish Academies of Science, and has been a Fellow of the American Academies in Berlin and Rome, among other honors and Fellowships. He is the author or editor of many books and articles on historiography, geography of art, art and science, Central European art and architecture 1450-1800, and global exchange in art.He is now writing about global exchange in art and world art history. François Quiviger took his Ph.D. from the Warburg Institute, London, where he works as  curator of digital resources, librarian, and researcher. He has written, taught, and curated projects on early modern European academies, on mythology and on Renaissance material culture, art and art theory.His recent book, The Sensory World of Italian Renaissance Art (London, Chicago 2010), explores the presence and function of sensation in Renaissance ideas and practices, investigating their link to mental imagery and how Renaissance artists made touch, sound, and scent palpable to the minds of their audience. Dorothea Rockburne was born in Montreal. She was educated at the Montreal Museum School and at Black Mountain College, where she studied with, among other contemporaries, Philip Guston and Franz Kline, as well as the German mathematician Max Dehn, whose teachings, merging the mathematical and natural worlds, provided her with new and complex approaches to her work. Her interests in the Golden Mean, astronomy, cosmology, and lifelong fascination with Egyptians' use of proportion and light, additionally shaped her oeuvre.Working with both industrial and natural materials, she paints, cuts, draws, folds and calculates to create complex works of art built upon mathematical foundations. Christopher Wood (A.B., Harvard 1983, Ph.D., Harvard 1991) has been teaching at Yale since 1992. He is currently Visiting Professor in the German Department, New York University, and has taught as a visitor at the University of California (Berkeley), Vassar College, and the Hebrew University, Jerusalem.

Vittorio Lampugnani - The Craft of Urban Design, Reinvented
Lecture date: 2014-12-08 A Theory and two Projects Vittorio Magnago Lampugnani, architect in Milan and teacher at ETH in Zurich, considers urban design neither a science nor an art, but a craft. Less a matter of strokes of genius than one of patiently building on foundations that need to be rediscovered. In his view, the history of urban architecture can be interpreted and used as a memory-bank of strategies; and the city is a productive spatial and ideological device that promotes the construction and refinement of a community. His theoretical approach towards the contemporary city, articulated in several essays and books, has materialized in two major urban projects bearing his signature: the Novartis campus in Basel, a city of interdisciplinary interactive research, and the Richti-Quartier near Zurich, a new neighbourhood with apartments, offices, shops and remarkable public spaces. Vittorio Lampugnani: Born in Rome in 1951. Studied architecture in Rome and in Stuttgart; in 1977 doctorate. 1974-80 scientific assistant at Stuttgart University. 1980-84 consultant to the International Building Exhibition Berlin (IBA) for the new construction areas. 1990-94 Director of the German Architecture Museum. 1991-95 editor of Domus. Since 1994 professor for the History of urban design at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) in Zurich; since 2010 Dean of the Institute of History and Theory of Architecture (gta). Since 1980 own architectural practice, in Berlin and then in Milan. Among his most important projects: office building in Block 109, Berlin (1991-1996); housing group in Maria Lankowitz near Graz (1995-1999); entrance square of the Audi factory in Ingolstadt (1999-2000); urban design planning of Novartis Campus in St.Johann, Basel, (2001 ff.); underground station Mergellina, Naples (2004-2011); reshaping of the Donau banks, Regensburg (2004ff), with Wolfgang Weinzierl and others; master plan Richti Quartier, Wallisellen, as well as planning of the open spaces and of a residential block with shops (2007-2013).

LSE Events |  Professor Jeffrey D Sachs | Lecture 2.  The Hard Problem of Inter-Group Morality
In his 2017 Robbins Lectures, Professor Jeffrey D. Sachs will argue for a new Moral Economics built firmly on the foundations of the new moral sciences. The goal of moral economics is to promote wellbeing. A core principle is the cultivation of individual and group virtue to help guide the behavior of both individuals and groups in the global society. Lecture 2. The Hard Problem of Inter-Group Morality The most difficult moral challenges involve the interaction across groups, whether nation states, private companies, or ethnic groups. In all such cases, there is the deep tendency towards inter-group conflict. The cultivation of group virtue to underpin inter-group peace and cooperation is an especially daunting challenge. The two other lectures that are part of this series are on Monday 13 and Wednesday 15 February. Jeffrey D Sachs (@JeffDSachs) is Professor of Economics at Columbia University, a leader in sustainable development, senior UN advisor, bestselling author and syndicated columnist. Richard Layard is Director for the Wellbeing Programme, Centre for Economic Performance. The CEP (@CEP_LSE) is an interdisciplinary research centre at the LSE Research Laboratory.

Dr. Frances Cress Welsing - The Cress Theory of Black Mental Health
The second of three girls, Dr. Welsing was born on March 18, 1935, in Chicago, Illinois, into a family that had already produced two doctors. Her father, Henry N. Cress, was a medical doctor, as was her grandfather. After receiving her bachelor’s degree at Antioch College in Yellow Springs, Ohio, in 1957, and her M.D. at Howard University College of Medicine five years later, Welsing pursued a career in general and child psychiatry. She is renowned for her Cress Theory essay which was published while she was an assistant professor of pediatrics at the Howard University College of Medicine. According to Welsing, it caused such a stir that her tenure at the university was not renewed in 1975. For Welsing, the world’s most pressing problem is the disturbing issue of white supremacy, or racism: “I put the discussion of melanin on the board in order to describe how pigmentation was a factor in what white supremacy behavior was all about,” Welsing noted in an interview with Michael Eric Dyson for Emerge. “If I had my way, there wouldn’t be all the discussion about melanin. I would say, “discuss white supremacy.” Welsing laid the foundation for her ongoing discussion of white supremacy in her groundbreaking 1970 essay, The Cress Theory of Color-Confrontation and Racism. In it, she reasoned that because whiteness is a color deficiency and white people make up only a small percentage of the earth’s population, they tend to view people of color as a threat to their survival and therefore, treat them with hostility. She stated that their defensive reaction has been to impose white supremacy, or racism, on people of color throughout history. Dr. Welsing concluded her Cress Theory of Color-Confrontation by arguing that people of color must gain a better understanding of the “behavioral maneuverings” of whites in order to avoid being “manipulated into a subordinated position.” In her view, people of color need to “liberate” themselves psychologically from various forms of white domination. She also suggested that whites need to understand the motivation behind their behavior and explore with an open mind the emotional and psychological foundations of racism. The issue of white supremacy is discussed in depth in Welsing’s 1990 book The Isis Papers: The Keys to the Colors, a virtual fixture on the Blackboard African American Bestsellers List. Not surprisingly, Dr. Welsing’s views about global white supremacy and racism in contemporary society have provoked controversy and stimulated debate in and outside of the Black community, as well as on national television. Her theory has also challenged former definitions of racism put forth by social and behavioral scientists. Despite the controversy surrounding her, Welsing was praised in the Los Angeles Times for being “the first scientist to psychoanalyze white racism” in the history of Western psychiatry, rather then focusing on the victims of racism. She is sought out by the media for her provocative view of race relations and lectures about racism at colleges and universities in the U.S. and England. Dr. Welsing suggested in The Washington Post that more attention should be paid to “what is happening to Black men, a large segment of whom are in a state of frustration and hopelessness.” Welsing also suggests that African American families must operate more effectively if they are to produce “strong-minded” children who can “challenge” white supremacy. In an interview in Essence magazine, she said “No Black female should have children before the age of 30, and no Black man should become a father before the age of 35. Before child rearing, we should be going to school, going to the library, educating ourselves. We must create mature, mentally developed parents. Then we will be able to produce children with self-respect and a high-level functioning pattern.” Ultimately Welsing believes that the key to eradicating racism lies in self-respect, discipline, and education. “We must clean up our neighborhoods… we must revolutionize ourselves…. Whether white people are consciously or subconsciously aware of it, they are behaving in a manner to ensure white genetic survival. We must know this truth. And the truth is the first step toward real strength.”

B.F. Skinner's Shaping Experiment ("Skinner's Box")
An adherent to Watson's theory of behaviorism, B.F. Skinner was able to demonstrate how one can modify behavior through a process he called "shaping." In contrast to pure classical conditioning, Skinner utilized positive and negative reinforcement to cause behavior. Utilizing a contraption that became known as "Skinner's Box" he demonstrated how he could shape the behavior of pigeons by reinforcing their behavior. "By discovering the causes of behavior we can dispose of the imagined internal cause." - B.F. Skinner.

What is DIALOGICAL SELF? What does DIALOGICAL SELF mean? DIALOGICAL SELF meaning & explanation
What is DIALOGICAL SELF? What does DIALOGICAL SELF mean? DIALOGICAL SELF meaning & explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. The dialogical self is a psychological concept which describes the mind's ability to imagine the different positions of participants in an internal dialogue, in close connection with external dialogue. The "dialogical self" is the central concept in the Dialogical Self Theory (DST), as created and developed by the Dutch psychologist Hubert Hermans since the 1990s. Dialogical Self Theory (DST) weaves two concepts, self and dialogue, together in such a way that a more profound understanding of the interconnection of self and society is achieved. Usually, the concept of self refers to something “internal,” something that takes place within the mind of the individual person, while dialogue is typically associated with something “external,” that is, processes that take place between people involved in communication. The composite concept “dialogical self” goes beyond the self-other dichotomy by infusing the external to the internal and, in reverse, to introduce the internal into the external. As functioning as a “society of mind”, the self is populated by a multiplicity of “self-positions” that have the possibility to entertain dialogical relationships with each other. In Dialogical Self Theory (DST) the self is considered as “extended,” that is, individuals and groups in the society at large are incorporated as positions in the mini-society of the self. As a result of this extension, the self does not only include internal positions (e.g., I as the son of my mother, I as a teacher, I as a lover of jazz), but also external positions (e.g., my father, my pupils, the groups to which I belong). Given the basic assumption of the extended self, the other is not simply outside the self but rather an intrinsic part of it. There is not only the actual other outside the self, but also the imagined other who is entrenched as the other-in-the-self. An important theoretical implication is that basic processes, like self-conflicts, self-criticism, self-agreements, and self-consultancy, are taking place in different domains in the self: within the internal domain (e.g., “As an enjoyer of life I disagree with myself as an ambitious worker”); between the internal and external (extended) domain (e.g., “I want to do this but the voice of my mother in myself criticizes me”) and within the external domain (e.g., “The way my colleagues interact with each other has led me to decide for another job”). As these examples show, there is not always a sharp separation between the inside of the self and the outside world, but rather a gradual transition. DST assumes that the self as a society of mind is populated by internal and external self-positions. When some positions in the self silence or suppress other positions, monological relationships prevail. When, in contrast, positions are recognized and accepted in their differences and alterity (both within and between the internal and external domains of the self), dialogical relationships emerge with the possibility to further develop and renew the self and the other as central parts of the society at large.

Decolonizing Language Revitalization
September 25, 2013 - How has Eurocentric anthropology and linguistics affected the way we interpret our elders and ancestors who share their cultural knowledge with foreign researchers? Join us for a presentation with Khelsilem Rivers and April Charlo, indigenous peoples from community-based and cultural revitalization backgrounds, who will be discussing decolonization of language revitalization. Their presentation and open dialogue will address the context of rapid language loss and decline, and how colonization has affected or is embedded in the strategies of revitalization. In an effort to revitalize Indigenous languages, communities may have unknowingly adopted or assimilated colonized ways of thinking as they invest interest and attempt to repair or restore ties to culture and language. Are we learning to speak Sḵwx̱wú7mesh, Nēhiyawēwin, Kanien'kéha, et all with an English-mind or are we learning to speak Sḵwx̱wú7mesh, Nēhiyawēwin, Kanien'kéha with a Sḵwx̱wú7mesh, Nēhiyaw, Kanien'keháka mind? Indigenous languages represent one of the darkest ways in which ethnocide and cultural genocide have occurred. It is expected in the next twenty-five years over 700 of the worlds Indigenous languages will be forgotten. In the Vancouver area alone, the two Indigenous languages are considered critical endangered; Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish) language has five to seven fluent speakers and hən̓q̓əmin̓əm has one fluent speaker left. Decolonizing Language Revitalization aims to put forward perspectives of shifting values, cultural understandings, and impacts on community. It is the stories we tell ourselves (as a people) that impacts who we believe we are, and then who we become. But if the stories -- even including, or especially the Indigenous ones -- are filtered through colonialism, we have become a different people because of it. April Charlo from Bitterroot Salish people and is a member of the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes, Montana.

Secrets Of Control Of Humanity "Mertvya Voda" General K P Petrov Part 2
Part 2: "Secrets of the control of humanity.' "In the early 1990s many theories flourished explaining why the West is so keen to destroy Russia. The most popular among them was the Public Security Concept “Mertvaya voda” (Dead Water - in Russian mythology the Dead water may revive dead and cure wounds) which convinced many otherwise sensible people’s eyes to the role of Judeo-Christianity in both destroying the human psyche and also in shaping a slavish mentality. This Concept, created by General Konstantin Petrov, argues that all Russia’s woes began with the adoption of Christianity (specifically, "Judaic Christianity"), imposed by the Jews. In the 1990s the Concept leaflets were disseminated in underground, self-published brochures, but by the 2000s its adherents were found in the Russian secret services and government bodies. “Taking a realistic view of the current sweeping expansion of the Satanic Global Predictor and its secret-agent network, it cannot be ruled out that a path to a future Planetary Bio-Defense Union lies through an accelerated creation of a Pan-Eurasian Defense Union as a geopolitical alternative to the ongoing expansion of the United States and NATO” - it is a characteristic quote from the Concept, which was discovered by the authors of this book in the draft memo, “Global processes: trends of developments in the world and Russia until 2020” prepared by the Systems Analysis Research Institute, a think tank under the Russian Audit Chamber, headed by Sergei Stepashin, chief of the FSB from 1994-1995. Nor was the Audit Chamber the only Russian government body infiltrated by the ideas of the “Dead water concept”. The official website of Concept's followers www.kpe.ru stated that the FSB had always supported the Concept." Series of lectures includes the presentation of the modern language of ancient philosophical and philosophical positions, hidden from mankind, and compare them with the existing ones. Exposed the false concepts and ideas, justified and proved true. From this perspective, the analysis of the history of mankind as a process managed and Russia's role in this process. Disclose the origin of mankind, its history and purpose of its existence. Details are bases of management of public processes at both the regional and global levels of government. The analysis of various faiths, religious cults and secular ideologies (including Freemasonry) in the management of social systems and processes . A detailed explanation of the mechanism of action and the noosphere egregors on people's lives and the course of social processes, describes the role of the mind in the heads of government. It is enough to detail the foundations of economic management and role in the global credit and financial system based on usury. Opened mechanisms cheating people settle just how to manage the economy. Finally, new information reveals the state of humanity, is a description of the current situation in the world and in Russia. The principles of equitable living arrangement and clearly formulated ways and means of its establishment. The course video lectures designed primarily for students of all profiles (as it affects the situation in all spheres of life), and will be a great help in writing term papers and dissertations. It will be useful to high school students thinking, seeking to obtain advanced knowledge that will be needed later in life, including in higher education. The course is a must faculty universities, colleges and teachers of secondary and special schools and more because those to whom they provide knowledge, very soon will ask questions to their teachers on issues of this video course.

Albert Bandura discuses Moral Disengagement
Moral Disengagement addresses how otherwise good people can do cruel things. They do so through selective disengagement of moral self-sanctions from inhumane conduct. At the behavior locus, worthy ends are used to sanctify harmful means by social and moral justification. At the agency locus, people obscure personal responsibility by displacement and diffusion of responsibility. At the outcomes locus, the detrimental social effects of one's actions are ignored, minimized, or disrupted. At the victim locus, perpetrators dehumanize and blame recipients for bringing the maltreatment on themselves. These mechanisms operate at both individual and social systems levels. Disengagement of moral agency is illustrated in the workings of the corporate world, terrorism, the use of military force, application of the death penalty, and in ecological destruction that is heating the planet and making it less habitable.

Richard Epstein on Barack Obama, his former Chicago Law Colleague
Few legal scholars have blown as many minds and had the tangible impact that Richard Epstein has managed. His 1985 volume, Takings: Private Property and the Power of Eminent Domain is a case in point. Epstein made the hugely controversial argument that regulations and other government actions such as environmental regulations that substantially limit the use of or decrease the value of property should be thought of as a form of eminent domain and thus strictly limited by the Constitution. The immediate result was a firestorm of outrage followed by an acknowledgment that the guy was onto something. As Epstein told Reason in a 1995 interview, "I took some pride in the fact that [Sen.] Joe Biden (D-Del.) held a copy of Takings up to a hapless Clarence Thomas back in 1991 and said that anyone who believes what's in this book is certifiably unqualified to sit in on the Supreme Court. That's a compliment of sorts.... But I took even more pride in the fact that, during the Breyer hearings [in 199X], there were no such theatrics, even as the nominee was constantly questioned on whether he agreed with the Epstein position on deregulation as if that position could not be held by responsible people." Born in New York in 1943, Epstein splits faculty appointments at the University of Chicago and New York University; he's also a senior fellow at Stanford's Hoover Institution, an adjunct scholar at the Cato Institute, and a contributor to Reason. In books such as Forbidden Grounds: The Case Against Employment Discrimination Laws (1992) to Simple Rules for a Complex World (1995), and Skepticism and Freedom: A Modern Case for Classical Liberalism (2003), Epstein pushes his ideas and preconceptions to their limits and takes his readers along for the ride. A die-hard libertarian who believes the state should be limited and individual freedom expanded, he is nonetheless the consummate intellectual who first and foremost demands he offer up ironclad proofs for his characteristically counterintuitive insights into law and social theory. Indeed, Epstein's enduring value may not be any particular legal or policy prescription he's offered over the years but rather his methodology. He believes in robust and unfettered argument and debate as a way of gaining knowledge. If you don't put your ideas out in the arena, you can't be doing your best work, he argues. "The problem when you keep to yourself is you don't get to hear strong ideas articulated by people who disagree with you," he says. Reason's Nick Gillespie interviewed Epstein at NYU's law building in October. The conversation was wide-ranging and high-energy--another Epsteinian virtue. They talked about legal challenges to ObamaCare, the effects of stimulus spending and TARP bailouts, and a former University of Chicago adjunct faculty member by the name of Barack Obama, with whom Epstein regularly interacted in the 1990s and early 2000s. "He passed through Chicago without absorbing much of the internal culture," says Epstein of the president. "He's amazingly good at playing intellectual poker. But that's a disadvantage, because if you don't put your ideas out there to be shot down, you're never gonna figure out what kind of revision you want."

Tomorrow 3.0, Michael Munger, Hayek Lecture Series
Professor Munger received his Ph.D. in Economics at Washington University in St. Louis in 1984. Following his graduate training, he worked as a staff economist at the Federal Trade Commission. His first teaching job was in the Economics Department at Dartmouth College, followed by appointments in the Political Science Department at the University of Texas at Austin (1986-1990) and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (1990-1997). At UNC he directed the MPA Program, which trains public service professionals, especially city and county management. He moved to Duke in 1997, and was Chair of the Political Science Department from 2000 through 2010. He has won three University-wide teaching awards (the Howard Johnson Award, an NAACP "Image" Award for teaching about race, and admission to the Bass Society of Teaching Fellows). He is currently director of the interdisciplinary PPE Program at Duke University. Munger’s recent books include “Choosing in Groups” (coauthored with his son, Kevin Munger) and “The Thing Itself,” both in 2015. His research interests include the study of the morality of exchange and the working of the new “Middleman Economy.” Much of his recent work has been in philosophy, examining the concept of truly voluntary exchange, a concept for which he coined the term "euvoluntary." His current project is a book entitled “Tomorrow 3.0." Subscribe to our YouTube Channel for more!
