Human Rights Video #8: Protected By Law

One of my principle concerns with the current scene is the rapidly escalating speed with which human rights are being trampled. The lack of peace in certain regions is proof positive that these principles are actually valid and needed, more than ever.

This trend needs to be reversed. The entrance point is educating people that they do have rights. Hence this post and the request you share these posts so more people are aware of and insist upon their rights so that we can live in a peaceful society.

Watch the video and if you think so too, please share it!

Do you know it is a fundamental right of yours to have your own opinion? You would not think so from the way some people (including the government) try to belittle you for disagreeing with them but it is.

Kurt Vonnegut on Buying Envelopes

Kurt Vonnegut

Kurt Vonnegut tells his wife he’s going out to buy an envelope:
“Oh, she says, well, you’re not a poor man. You know, why don’t you go online and buy a hundred envelopes and put them in the closet?

And so I pretend not to hear her. And go out to get an envelope because I’m going to have a hell of a good time in the process of buying one envelope.

I meet a lot of people. And see some great looking babies. And a fire engine goes by. And I give them the thumbs up. And I’ll ask a woman what kind of dog that is. And, and I don’t know. The moral of the story is – we’re here on Earth to fart around.

And, of course, the computers will do us out of that. And what the computer people don’t realize, or they don’t care, is we’re dancing animals. You know, we love to move around. And it’s like we’re not supposed to dance at all anymore.”

Let’s all get up and move around a bit right now… or at least dance.

Lesson From Enzo Mallorca

Enzo Mallorca

The famous Italian diver Enzo Mallorca was diving into the hot sea of Syracuse and talking to his daughter Rossana who was on the boat.

Ready to submerge, felt something slightly hit the back. Turned around and saw a dolphin. Then realized he didn’t want to play but express something.

The animal dived and Enzo followed it.

About 12 feet deep, trapped in an abandoned net, there was another dolphin.

Mallorca quickly asked her daughter to grab her diving knives. In a few minutes, the two managed to free the dolphin, which, at the edge of the forces, emerged, issued an ‘almost human cry’ (Mallorca described).

A dolphin can resist underwater up to 10 minutes, then drowns.

The freed dolphin still stunned was corralled by Enzo, Rossana and the other dolphin. Then came the surprise: It was a delphine, who soon gave birth to a puppy.

The male circled them and, pausing in front of Enzo, touched his cheek (like a kiss), in a gesture of gratitude… …and swam away.

Enzo Mallorca concluded his intervention by saying: “Until man learns to respect and to talk to the animal world, he can never know his true role on Earth.”
