HBO's documentary that has some heat on it, about Florida's "Stand Your Ground" law, and one of the more famous cases to come out of it

-

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i_4dl8emrMo" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i_4dl8emrMo</a>.

I've got to admit, even though I'm a fan of the general thrust of that law, this was not a good thing for it. The white protagonist is very  Undecided.

Paradise or Oblivion

This video presentation advocates a new socio-economic system, which is updated to present-day knowledge, featuring the life-long work of Social Engineer, Futurist, Inventor and Industrial Designer Jacque Fresco, which he calls a Resource-Based Economy. This documentary details the root causes of the systemic value disorders and detrimental symptoms caused by our current established system. The film details the need to outgrow the dated and inefficient methods of politics, law, business, or any other "establishment" notions of human affairs, and use the methods of science, combined with high technology, to provide for the needs of all the world's people. It is not based on the opinions of the political and financial elite or on illusionary so-called democracies, but on maintaining a dynamic equilibrium with the planet that could ultimately provide abundance for all people.

Paradise or Oblivion, by The Venus Project, introduces the viewer to a more appropriate value system that would be required to enable this caring and holistic approach to benefit human civilization. This alternative surpasses the need for a monetary-based, controlled, and scarcity-oriented environment, which we find ourselves in today.

Since all humans have the same basic needs (Maslow), abolish all nations and change our traditional economy to a resource based one, supported by advanced technologies. He hasn't used the term, but what I hear is someone with a non-dualistic mindset.

Note: I should watch/listen this for a second time for a better understanding

the problem is that human beings like all animals are territorial. And what happens when you abolish all nations and the former nations all speak different languages? We have always been tribal, territorial and segregate ourselves by language, culture, race, ethnicity, etc.

After reading the FAQs of the project, I realize that abolishing all nations isn't one of their goals. Instead, the plan is to let them work together since they all share the same basic needs.


"9. In the idea of future, do you think that the regional differences will still have the greatest influence as they do today? Or will these differences disappear?

Our problems today are enormous and global in their scope and impact. They cannot be solved by any one nation. The concept of common good is global in nature, but local in implementation.
We must start with what we have in common. All social systems, regardless of political philosophy, religious beliefs, or social customs, ultimately depend upon natural resources like clean air and water, arable land, and the technology and personnel to maintain a high standard of living. This can be accomplished through the intelligent and humane application of science and technology using a global systems approach. When money and self interests are outgrown, interaction between nations won't be based on self interest, but on mutual interest. This approach will help eliminate artificial boundaries that separate people."

"Directed by Inigo Westmeier and featuring the 36 000 students of Shaolin Tagou, the biggest fighting school for kids in China.

The documentary Dragon Girls ( "Drachenmädchen") tells the story of three Chinese girls, training to become Kung Fu fighters, far away from their families at the Shaolin Tagou Kung Fu School, located right next to the Shaolin Monastery in China, place of origin of Kung Fu."


(Excellent camera work. The speed of the subtitles is pretty fast sometimes.)

Why China Is "The World's Factory"

Question: What do Lightening McQueen, a Nike sneaker and an iPad have in common? Answer: China. Chinese products seem to be everywhere: the majority of tags, labels and stickers display the legend “Made in China.” The Western consumer may ask, “why is everything made in China?” Some may think the ubiquity of Chinese products is due to the abundance of cheap Chinese labor that brings down the production costs, but there is much more to it. Here are five reasons China is "the world's factory.”

The End of Ownership (VPRO Backlight)

How will the production process change when we no longer own things, but only use them? A Backlight Lab with Thomas Rau.

We are on the verge of a significant change in behavior. The production model in which people work in order to buy things is coming to an end. We don’t want to own things, we want to have access to them and use them. The fun, but not the trouble: ‘Don’t own, enjoy!’ What does this mean for the way products are made, the way we build, for innovation and economic growth? A VPRO Backlight Lab with Thomas Rau, the most radical architect of the Netherlands.

Vice takes a close look at whether life on Mars can be sustainable, what Paris is like after the tragic attacks in November and the worldwide fight for women’s rights in the upcoming fourth season of their investigative HBO documentary series.
We’ve got a ton of new and exciting stuff planned for the 18-episode season, from Thomas Morton checking out what life on Mars would really be like to Gianna Toboni heading to Paris for the first large-scale vigil since the tragic shooting last November.

Dave Asprey is the creator of Bulletproof Coffee, the butter coffee combo that has taken the health community by storm, and the the author of the Bulletproof diet. Applying his Silicon Valley background to his own health journey, Dave has spent over $300,000 to hack his own biology. Our host Max Lugavere heads to Dave's Biohacking facility outside of Victoria, British Columbia, to learn more about what it means to hack your own body and the benefits of leading a Bulletproof lifestyle.

(Note that there's a lot of criticism about his ideas, such as misunderstanding parts of the human physiology, taking things into extremes and his commercial stake in selling products)
