The Heart of Our Politics

http://brainspew.com

All this time, I really thought citizens were victims, held against their will and robbed, by a government that is thriving at their expense. This is, of course, true; but, there’s something I realized. People really aren’t sheep. The citizens aren’t innocent little lambs being fed to the machine. The vast majority of people simply abrogate the responsibility of their lives willingly.

Authoritarian Sociopathy: Part Three: Power and Compassion

http://www.examiner.com

The subordinate is stuck in the impossible position of both being conditioned to obey the authority, and empathizing with the victim.

6 Ridiculous History Myths (You Probably Think Are True)

http://www.cracked.com

Everybody knows that people in the past were insane. They wore funny hats, used words like "wherefore," and don't get us started on the pants.

But some of the historic anecdotes we love repeating again and again simply aren't true. As convenient as it may be to think of our ancestors as murder-happy torture enthusiasts, they were crazy, but they weren't that crazy.

Great article about patriotism vs principles

http://freestudents.blogspot.com

Nationalism, or patriotism, are emotions I don't share. I find them on par with racism: the belief that one is inherently superior on the basis of the involuntary membership to some collective body.
