CMP (Canadian Mind Products)’s purpose is to stand up for the rights of plants and animals. Animals also includes cetacea, humans, gay people, atheists, war victims and invertebrates. CMP attempts to inculcate planetary consciousness — concern for the planet as a whole. A subgoal is to teach people to use computers effectively, particularly with the Java computer language.
I suggest that freedom of religion should not be absolute. Believers do too much harm to others. Their ability to hurt others needs to be curtailed. I suggest the following not be tolerated in religions anywhere on earth.
Such religions would not be protected by freedom of religion and separation of church and state. The government should actively suppress them. Hopefully, religions would drop these obnoxious features.
Awesome Power of Advertising
Behold the awesome power of advertising to persuade people to pay money for Coca Cola Zero, even though it is considerably less appetising than plain tap water.~ Roedy (1948-02-04 age:69)
Looking Ahead on Global Warming
This is a world [the world after climate change] in which food imports are no longer available at any price, as there is a global food shortage. But even then there are relative winners and relative losers: the highest-latitude countries — northern Europe, Russia, Canada — are still getting adequate rainfall and are able to feed themselves, while those in the mid-latitudes are in serious trouble. Even the United States has lost a large amount of crop-growing area as the rain fails to fall over the high plains west of the Mississippi, persistent droughts beset the southeast and the rivers that provide irrigation water to the Central Valley of California cease to flow in the summertime. Countries of smaller size, like Spain, Italy and Turkey, on the northern side of the Mediterranean, (not to mention those on the southern side), find that their entire land area is turning into desert and that they can no longer feed their population. The northeastern monsoon that brought rain to the north Chinese plain has failed and the rivers that watered southern China have suffered the same fate as those that provided California’s water now: they only flow in the wintertime.~ Gwynne Dyer (1943-04-17 age:74) Climate Wars: The Fight for Survival as the World Overheats page 4
