This book tells the story of 14 “legal heroes” who have responded to the crises of the Trump presidency in innovative and inspiring ways, from advocating for asylum seekers on the southern border, to defending environmental p... more

by William X. AdamsScientific Introspection calls for psychologists to use introspection to investigate the mind. Remarkably, we have the ability to look inward at the workings of our minds with introspection. As far as we know, we are the only animal on the planet that can do that. It is foolish not to use this amazing gift to study the structure and functions of the mind. Currently, psychologists have to study the brain and behavior and guess what the mind is like. But why guess? A well-defined procedure of in... more
by Werner NeffThe gifts we inherited from our Founding Fathers are The Declaration of Independence, The Constitution, and The Bill of Rights: guidelines for peacefully living together. They designed the democratic principles, inspired by the experiences of ancient Athens and Rome, based on values and needs, to guide our leaders in good times and bad. These gifts are the foundation of our country. Today our Democracy is eroding, and we are slowly drifting away from the values and principles which are at its... more

Read. Rebel. Organize. Mobilize. - Jim Hightower ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

by Joss SheldonTHEY SAY WE LIVE IN A DEMOCRACY. WE ARE FREE AND WE SHOULD BE GRATEFUL. But just how "Free" are we? How democratic are our so-called "Democracies"? Is it enough to simply elect our leaders and sit back, helpless, as they rule over us like dictators? What good is selecting our politicians, if we cannot control our media, police or soldiers? If we must blindly follow our teachers' and bosses' commands, whilst at school and in the workplace, is it not a little naïve to believe that we are the m... more
