Reposted from the Institute for Cultural Evolution’s blog: The Institute for Cultural Evolution does not officially endorse candidates for public office. But as the president of this organization I feel obligated to express my personal political opinion on the upcoming election. While I acknowledge that there are many people of good sense and good faith who continue to support Donald Trump, I cannot assent to his leadership. My considered assessment is that Trumpā€™s apparent disregard for the truth, coupled with his generally untrustworthy character, disqualify him for the office of the presidency. Even though Iā€™m a registered Democrat, I still …

Ecological inequality includes such things as access to fresh air, clean water, lush vegetation, beautiful scenery, healthy and non-toxic food, clean living spacesā€”even sunlight. In many large Chinese cities, a lot of people hardly see the sun, and millions die as a result of air polluĀ­tion. Many people around the world work in noisy, physically danĀ­gerous, dirty and toxic enĀ­vironments, like children in West Africa working on huge piles of waste from electronics, slowly poisoning themselves to reĀ­trieĀ­ve valuable metals and minerals. The brunt of harm caused by environmenĀ­tal deĀ­gradation is carried very unevenly by populĀ­ations. You see this in …

Race, to all people who use the term correctly, is a matter of a few easily observed physiological characteristics: the color of your skin, the texture of your hair, and the shape of a few extremities . . . But there is no scientific correlation between those physical features and behavior. The only correlation comes from the conditioning of the consciousnessā€”and that is not the same thing as race. Consciousness and race just donā€™t correlate. ā€”Albert Murray Introduction The meme of race is like a dead virus, brought alive by the vulnerability of those it feeds upon, attacking the immune …

The annual meeting at the Club of Rome also has a Global Youth Summit, this year it is via Zoom in three “continental time zones:” East Asia, Afri-Euro-Middle-East, and the Americas. Each meeting is 3 hours and 80-90 students participate in each one of them.

How do chocolate goodies keep their sheen and creamy texture, even while sitting on store shelves? Increasingly, the answer is palm oil (and palm kernel oil), the worldā€™s most widely consumed vegetable oil[1]. In our report Rethinking Food and Agriculture 2020-2030, we discuss how precision fermentation (PF) is rapidly improving in cost and capabilities so that it could be used to make any protein at speed and scale. But PF is not just about protein, in fact a wide variety of molecules can be made via PF, including those found in palm oil. Store-bought chocolate cream balls, which the author …

It has been shown in a growing body of recent research that social excluĀ­sion and rejection activate similar patterns in the brain as physical pain. Social exclusion is like a slap in your face. This is a real thing: You subĀ­ject someone even to a small slight or rejecĀ­tion, and not only do they expĀ­erĀ­ience pain, they also become more vulĀ­nerable to such pain in the future, and their emotional state is pushed towards vengefulness and envyā€”even increasing the propensity towards physical aggression.[i] The following is a slightly edited extract from Hanzi Freinachtā€™s book ā€˜Nordic Ideology: A Metamodern Guide to …

The Bildung Rose was first described in English in this article published by Nordic Bildung in October 2019: http://nordicbildung.org/publication/the-bildung-rose/ In June 2020, it appeared for the first time in print in English in my book Bildung: Keep Growing: http://nordicbildung.org/books/bildung/ The model itself is a lot older, though: it first appeared in Danish in my 2007 book Baade-Og Onsdag (Both-And Wednesday) — the third volume of a five volume series called Baade-Og (Both-And).; you can read more about those books here: http://www.baade-og.dk/english/.
