Brandon Smith – How Do You Know When Your Society Is In The Midst Of Collapse?

As economic turmoil worldwide becomes increasingly apparent, I have been receiving messages from readers expressing some concerns on the public “perception” of collapse. That is to say, there are questions on the average person’s concept of collapse versus the reality of collapse. This is a vital issue that I have discussed briefly in the past, but it deserves a more …

Happiness: Is it in your DNA?

Happiness is a state of mind, the gurus say. Well, actually, it could be more a function of genes, the authors of an unusual scientific study asserted on Thursday.

ED ASNER & MAGGIE GRANT ON “THE INSTIGATOR”

FREEDOM OF THE PRESS is our focus with the great ED ASNER and MAGGIE GRANT, co-conspirators on the upcoming feature film THE INSTIGATOR, the first of a trilogy of feature films on the fight for freedom in early America, leading up to the Revolution.

As television’s former LOU GRANT, who inspired so many of us to become journalists, Ed has been active for decades as one of America’s leading advocates for peace, social justice and freedom of speech. So his powerful role in The Instigator, about the legendary 1734-1735 trial of JOHN PETER ZENGER brings with it huge moral and theatrical clout.

Co-Writer/Director/Producer Maggie Grant has conjured a brilliant script about the trial and the key role played by the ultimate “Philadelphia Lawyer” ANDREW HAMILTON, who also served as the attorney (and close friend) of BENJAMIN FRANKLIN.

In this fleeting hour we talk about the upcoming fall release of this feature film, and the other award-winning productions coming from this great partnership. Next in line will be films about the BOSTON TEA PARTY, the AMERICAN REVOLUTION and the writing of the Constitution and BILL OF RIGHTS.

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 …
