“In this episode of the Waking Up podcast, Sam Harris speaks with Charles Murray about the controversy over his book The Bell Curve, the validity and significance of IQ as a measure of intelligence, the problem of social stratification, the rise of Trump, universal basic income, and other topics.
Charles Murray is a political scientist and author. His 1994 New York Times bestseller, The Bell Curve (coauthored with the late Richard J. Herrnstein), sparked heated controversy for its analysis of the role of IQ in shaping America’s class structure. Murray’s other books include What It Means to Be a Libertarian, Human Accomplishment, and In Our Hands. His 2012 book, Coming Apart: The State of White America, 1960-2010 describes an unprecedented divergence in American classes over the last half century.”

Alice Day is Pedophile Pride Day across the globe. Let’s do all we can to raise awareness about this day.”
I’m all but certain, “pedophile pride day” was appended to Alice Day, by trash talkers who were trying to sensationalize, mock and ridicule this day of observance…Those are the only sorts I’ve ever seen using that phrase.
Looking at this video…Some of the notions she’s spreading here, are just laughable.
You know what’s going to make “pedophile leaders” dress in checkered clothes, or “pedophiles” hang out at ice cream parlors?…
…Little more than them getting a kick, out of individually mocking your ridiculous caricatures of us.
Personally…I’m about ready to go mow the lawn, on Alice Day…
You people out there who are unfamiliar with our days of observance, need to stop pretending like this is some underground, ominous plot “that must be stopped”…And you need to stop spreading false, ridiculous information about us, who we are and what we are up to.
You are all just talking trash about us.
Why don’t you actually approach people who observe Alice Day [or IBLD], and actually find out what it is about, as opposed to relying on propagandists who don’t know what they are talking about?

“As Donald Trump approaches his 100th day as president on Saturday, his approval ratings are the lowest any president has had at this stage in generations. A recent poll by NBC News and The Wall Street Journal found just 40 percent of Americans approve of his job performance so far. Trump took to Twitter to call the poll “totally wrong.” This comes as former presidential candidate Senator Bernie Sanders has emerged as one the country’s most popular politicians. The Hill reports a Harvard-Harris poll shows 57 percent of registered voters view him favorably. Meanwhile, some former Sanders supporters have launched a movement to “Draft Bernie for a People’s Party,” urging him to start a new progressive party and run for president again in 2020. We speak with Nick Brana, the former outreach coordinator for the Bernie Sanders campaign, and Cornel West, professor of the practice of public philosophy at Harvard University. His new piece in The Guardian is headlined “The Democrats delivered one thing in the past 100 days: disappointment.”

“The former secretary of state and 2016 Democratic presidential hopeful made the comments at a dinner held by LGBT+ organisation The Centre, where she received an award for her commitment to equality.
During her acceptance speech, she once again echoed her famous “gay rights are human rights” slogan, and criticised the current US government for not speaking out against the Russian state of Chechnya.
She said: “In recent weeks, we’ve heard terrifying accounts from Chechnya of gay and bisexual men being taken from their homes and families, tortured, and even killed.”
“Chechyna has opened the first concentration camp for homosexuals since Hitler, where campaigners say gay men are being tortured with electric shocks and beaten to death.
It comes after it was claimed 100 gay men had been detained and three killed in Chechnya last week.
A report by Novoya Gazeta said authorities had set up several camps where homosexuals are killed or forced to promise to leave the republic.
One of the camps is reportedly at the former military headquarters in the town of Argun.”
“Ramzan Kadyrov, President of Chechnya, has publicly declared that he wants all LGBT people in the country to be eliminated by May 26, which marks the start of Muslim holiday, Ramadan.
British Foreign Prime Minister, Alan Duncan, confirmed the threat during yesterday’s Parliament hearing: “Human rights groups report that these anti-gay campaigns and killings are orchestrated by the head of the Chechen republic, Ramzan Kadyrov.”

“ALICE’S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND – FULL AudioBook | by Lewis Carroll – Adventure & Fantasy | Greatest Audio Books V2 – Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, by Lewis Carroll (1832-1898) (commonly known as Alice in Wonderland), tells the story of a girl named Alice who falls down a rabbit hole into a fantasy world populated by peculiar and anthropomorphic creatures.

It is considered to be one of the most characteristic examples of the “literary nonsense” genre, and its narrative course and structure have been enormously influential, especially in the fantasy genre.
