  • Our Worst Strength

    by James F. Richardson
    We are all settlers on our own personal frontiers. It’s our national way of life. Individualism. America has now taken individualism to its logical extreme like no other society on Earth. And the results are mixed. Radical autonomy without wisdom and lots of social support is a dangerous gift. It can even become a curse of self-destruction. This book explores how individualism affects the five major domains of American life that comprise 80% of our waking time - work, fun, food, friends, a... more

  • The Only Authentic Book of Persuasion: The Agenda-Spin Method 7th Edition

    by Richard E. Vatz, Ph.D.
    Man and woman are the persuading animals. There is no overriding issue more important in most people's daily life, life's pleasures and all of political matters than persuasion. Many, if not most, matters are largely wholly related to persuasion, defined in this work on the Agenda-Spin theory, as the struggle of people to determine for their chosen audiences: 1. What we talk about and 2. What it means. Persuasion is not the only determinant in life, and there are some matters mostly out... more
  • For Love of Country

    by Norman W. Holden

    In 1776, Thomas Paine anonymously produced Common Sense, a pamphlet advocating for colonial independence from Great Britain. If Paine’s revolutionary words had been revealed to the British authorities prior to their publication in the colonies, his writings most certainly would have resulted in his death. Paine insisted that British rule was directly responsible for nearly every problem in colonial society. Paine’s political views and his fellow revolutionaries’ act... more

  • Models, Metaphors, and Intuition: How we think, learn and communicate

    by Michael Ruhl Frank

    How does our subconscious / conscious, mind / brain system work? How does it effect us? And why is it important to understand? My goal in this writing is to promote social consciousness and increase awareness and understanding of the “human condition” that we all share, and that ultimately binds us all in our future, and our fate. I endeavor to pursue that goal with a series of discussions on how we think, how we learn, and how we communicate against the backdrop of our own indivi... more

  • Symbionts or Parasites? Humanity’s Crossroads

    by Dr. Pedro A. Gonzalez Jr.
    When AI benefits both humans and machines, it can be considered a symbiont, or when AI benefits only machines at the expense of humans, it can be regarded as a parasite. However, when AI is used to benefit only machines at the expense of humans, it can be considered a parasite. Similarly, AI can be viewed as a parasite if used to manipulate or control human behavior. It’s worth noting that the relationship between humans and AI is not always clear-cut, and there are often shades of gray between ... more
  • Rethinking Money and Finance: Economics, Morality and Common Sense

    by Richard G Patterson

     The economic activity of our society is destroying the viability of life on earth and enabling a minute minority to accumulate vast wealth and power while much of the population struggles with poverty or insecurity. We have an inhumane economic system which is rooted in ideas propagated either by those who stand to gain from the system or by well-meaning people who have been persuaded that the current system represents centuries of evolutionary progress. There is nothing inevitable abou... more

  • A Secret I Can't Tell

    by Joe Gantz
    In 1977 a law was passed in Florida banning discrimination in housing, employment, and public accommodation based on sexuality. This law was an important step towards respecting gay and lesbian civil rights. However, immediately after it was passed, a group called Save Our Children vowed to overturn the law. This group stirred up so much fear regarding the idea of a gay role model, such as a teacher, interacting with children that the gay-rights ordinance was repealed. In 1979 Joe Gantz decid... more

  • To Save the Earth, Work Less! The Crucial Environmental Issue No One Is Talking About

    by Charles Siegel
    Americans believe we need rapid economic growth to create jobs and avoid unemployment—but that is because we do not have the choice of working shorter hours. The Dutch have a better model. By law, they can choose to work part time, which means they avoid unemployment by creating the amount of work people actually want rather than by creating more and more full-time jobs. In the course of this century, most nations of the world could emerge from poverty and have a comfortable middle-class standar... more
