Noam Chomsky on the Russian Ukrainian conflict

World’s eyes are on this conflict, war or special military operation; whatever the name you give it, it is dangerous and yet easily resolved as Noam Chomsky says.

In the below video, Chomsky goes back to the 90s, where an agreement was made between the U.S and Russian for a non-expansion of NATO in Russia’s neighbouring countries. Surely, the agreement was not respected as we can see now.

However, does this justify invasion, brutality that is of a high price on a humanitarian level? On a moral level, nothing justifies this. On a political level, Niccolo Machiavelli would say the opposite.

Wherever you stand, this short video is worth watching:

Renaissance Humanism and the Sanctification of the Conscience: Humanism & Modernity

Renaissance Humanism laid the foundations for modernity. So much so, neo-traditionalists—especially of the Western variety—condemn the Renaissance more-so than even the Enlightenment (which was, in many ways, a continuation of Renaissance ideals). The Renaissance in Europe principally emanated from Catholic clerics and intellectuals who engaged with Islam, post-Crusades, intellectually, rather than violently, and the recovering […]

The first traffic jam on Broadway

I’ve owned the book Time and Free Will by French philosopher Henri Bergson (1859-1941) since university days – but regretfully never quite got around to fully reading it.
