  3. In this video, Angela Davis talks about being vegan and what she believes being responsible towards other sentient beings entails in regards to our food choices.

    “The food we eat masks so much cruelty. The fact that we can sit down and eat a piece of chicken without thinking about the horrendous conditions under which chickens are industrially bred in this country is a sign of the dangers of capitalism, how capitalism has colonized our minds."

  4. Do people that identify themselves as "left" on the political scale feel a greater personal responsibility to reduce their climate impact than people on the right side of politics? I do believe that this could be the case. To be able to shed some light on this question I will use a statistical program called SPSS and data from the European Social Survey (ESS). In my analysis, I want to investigate whether people's political affiliation matters when it comes to feeling a greater personal responsibility for reducing climate change. As such I will use two variables from ESS, these are: Placement on left right scale. To what extent feel personal responsibility to reduce climate change. The two variables contain 14 and 15 different response options, which also include answers such as "Do not Know" and "No Answer". The political variable includes 11 answer options, from "Left" to "Right." The climate responsibility variable contains just as many possible response options, from "Nothing at all" to "Much". In this particular test, I only want to see the opinions of people who identify themselves on either of the far ends of the political scale. As such I have encoded these two variables through the recode function in SPSS so that only answers from the two "extremes" are reflected in the output. In other words, I only have respondents who have answered that they belong to the far left and right on the political scale. I've done the same with the climate responsibility variable. Alright, let's get the result! The first table shows that due to the recoding we only have answers from 575 people, which is only 1.7 percent of all respondents in the ESS data. So please, don't take this blog post too seriously. The other table is much more interesting for us as it shows the actual answers to our question. In the above table, we see that 65 percent of those who identify as "left" feel a great personal responsibility to reduce their climate impact. Which can be compared with only 46 percent of those identifying to the "right". Only 35 percent of the people who identify themselves as "left" think they have no personal responsibility, compared to 54 percent on the "right" side of the political scale. As we can see, more leftists feel they have a considerable personal responsibility to reduce their climate impact compared to their political opposites on the right.
  5. The Florida school shooter hated blacks, latinos, jews and muslims. Group chat messages show school shooter obsessed with race, violence and guns "In a private Instagram group chat, confessed school shooter Nikolas Cruz repeatedly espoused racist, homophobic and anti-Semitic views and displayed an obsession with violence and guns."

  8. I wouldn't be surprised if he was part of a neo-nazi group or holds similar beliefs.
  9. The suspect in the horrific Florida school shooting could have been a member of a "white nationalist" group, it leader said before denying it. Florida shooting: Leader of white nationalist group confirms suspect was member of his organisation before appearing to deny it "The suspect in a Florida school shooting may have been a member of a white supremacist group, with the organisation's leader casting doubt on the association after affirming it."
  10. Be sure to check out this excellent - and easy to understand - explanation by Richard D. Wolff on why capitalism is theft.

  11. Självklart borde inte statliga aktörer vara med i en klimatförnekande och antivetenskaplig lobbyorganisation som Svenskt Flyg. Miljöminister Karolina Skog gör därför helt rätt när hon kräver att att Luftfartsverket och det statligt ägda Swedavia ska lämna Svenskt Flyg (Sveriges Radio).

  18. What was the last movie you saw?

    The last movie that I saw was Coco is a beautiful movie with beautiful effects, the colors all around the movie were majestic, all the music played for it and also it has an amazing context about the meaning of family and the importance to be a united Familia. Is the perfect movie to watch with family or friends. is perfect for all kind of people from children to adults and I really know that you will enjoy it. Also, I recommend you to watch the movie ¨Wonder¨ is beautiful and is based on a novel from R.J Palacio of a kid that had to live 27 surgeries caused by a genetic disease, to look more acceptable for a superficial world. is an emotive film that you will love and teach you the real meaning of friendship and the importance to be accepted no matter our differences.
  19. I prefer to fall in love, it doesn't matter if the person doesn't love me back. But I prefer to know that I loved with all my heart, to know that I didn't show all my real feelings to the person. Also being loved is amazing but if the relationship ends you might feel bad for not love the other one with the same magnitude.
