Expat Files – 11.03.17

#1- Do locals celebrate Halloween in Latin America? I’ll say they do, but why? It took a few years for them to jump on board, but now they’ve grabbed onto the gringo Halloween tradition with a vengeance. Latins now celebrate that holiday “day/night” about 2 weeks longer than you do. However, the night time “trick or treat” bit is almost …

Expat Files – 10.29.17

#1- There has been a striking absence of political correctness, big brother influence, social justice warrior types and so-called snowflakes here in Latin America-excepting in certain gringoized tourist areas and public Latin university campuses. Because Latin America is a macho society, the culture is a good 25 years behind when it comes to political correctness of any kind. Funny thing …

PAUL KINGSNORTH – Brexit Reconsidered: a Modern Day Peasants’ Revolt?

In his introduction to the 1979 edition of his novel Pig Earth – the first in a trilogy chronicling the decline of peasant life in Europe in the 20th century – John Berger makes a distinction between what he calls a “culture of progress” and a “culture of survival”. The culture of progress, he says, “was born with the bourgeoisie …

John Atcheson – Put Away the Fireworks… You Don’t Live in a Democracy Anymore

Within the last 30 years, while we’ve chased bogeymen overseas and here at home, our Democracy has fallen. We have been taken over; defeated; our voices neutered; our freedoms trampled; our democracy vanquished. No invading force accomplished this; no jackboots echoed across our republic; no alien flag was raised above our lands. Not a single shot was fired by our …

Robert Parry – The Ever-Curiouser MH-17 Case

The curious mystery surrounding the shoot-down of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 over eastern Ukraine on July 17, 2014, gets more curious and more curious as the U.S. government and Dutch investigators balk at giving straightforward answers to the simplest of questions even when asked by the families of the victims. Adding to the mystery Dutch investigators have indicated that the Dutch …

Study: The ability to control dreams may help us unravel the mystery of consciousness

We spend around six years of our lives dreaming – that’s 2,190 days or 52,560 hours. Although we can be aware of the perceptions and emotions we experience in our dreams, we are not conscious in the same way as when we’re awake. This explains why we can’t recognise that we’re in a dream and often mistake these bizarre narratives …

Dr. Stoyan Sarg – The Unknown Danger of Nuclear Apocalypse

The nightmare scenario of nuclear war may actually be more frightening than you could ever have imagined. Life on the Earth is in danger of total destruction like never before. An apocalypse caused not by a natural event but from human behavior due to a scientific misconception. What is that? It is the incorrect concept about space, adopted a hundred …

Love Lust And Laughter – 08.25.15

Dr. Susan Block author of “THE BONOBO WAY – The Evolution of Peace through Pleasure” (www.BonoboWay.com) returned to the program. Dr. Suzy and Dr. Diana focused on the ways to release one’s inner bonobo. (Marilyn Monroe’s quote fits: “Sex is part of nature. I go along with nature.”) The author asks, What do these great apes know about sex, war and the rest of life that we don’t? The bonobos embrace sexual pleasure, and along the way exhibit bisexuality, female solidarity, deep compassion, curiosity, generosity, reciprocity, swinging, combining food with sex – infusing play into everything they do. It would seem that bonobos are really smart – yet sexy and fun! Part 1 of this show is archived, July 28th… and we will do a Part 3 very soon. Please listen and learn – Dr. Suzy is brilliant!

Canada’s Harper Government Provides Military Training to Neo-Nazi Ukraine National Guard By Prof Michel Chossudovsky

The Canadian media has highlighted Prime Minister Harper’s one on one meeting with Ukraine’s president Poroshenko in Kiev (June 5, 2015). The official story which has been fed to Canadians is that Ottawa is providing “non-lethal aid” as well support to the country’s civilian police force:  “We supply a range of non-lethal military equipment,” Harper said…  While disappointed about this, …
