Make Love, Not War - Life on Earth constantly swings between peace and war, even though human kind is famishing for happiness. Bliss does not derive from war and violence, why then humanity cannot live without the burden of wars. We are likely pursuing the culture of death. Maybe violence is inscribed into our DNA, our ancestral reptile brain, somehow, is dominating over our intellectual reasoning and emotional intelligence, the same brain that helped us to survive in hostile environments of a primitive world.

The Space Race - In the aftermath of the second Great War, Europe stood in destitution. Towns, cities, roads, homes, all were devastated in the conflict leaving most of the once great and powerful European powers unable to retain their previous power. This left but two superpowers, the polar opposites in every circumstance. Their struggle for supreme power was a conflict bordering on mutual devastation, though, was not fought with armies, navies, or air forces but through a race to the final frontier: Space. Since the United States had been able to harness the power of nuclear energy to create a weapon so deadly destructive that an unequal balance of power could only be equalized after the Russians were able...   [tags: Space Exploration ]

Legalization Of Cannibalism - Virginia Woolf once said, “One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well.” This is one of the many arguments behind legalizing cannibalism.

This, he hoped, would make them more amenable to Italian demands. Neither country wanted Italy as an enemy; therefore Mussolini would have the ability to play off the countries against each other. This would give Mussolini a great advantage. It seems likely that Mussolini had funded the Nazi's (along with many other right-wing, fascist groups in late 1920's Germany) and therefore should have been happy regarding Hitler's rise to power....   [tags: Papers] 1205 words
