01) Gabriel (1999)


“Is a convent anyplace for a boy? Gabriël is a lad of about eight, probably a foundling, who lives in a convent, the only child among about 20 nuns. Except for Sylvia, a young nun, Gabriël doesn’t get on well with others. He thinks of himself as an angel, impatient to grow wings and to fly, impatient with earth’s rules. He’s been collecting feathers from the many geese on the convent grounds. What happens next seems to horrify everyone except Sylvia, who may be in on Gabriël’s secret.”

Well…I don’t love the ending…but…in such a world as this, he may be the closest thing to an angel we will ever see.

01) Prager – the Left, Right and Wrong


“Dennis Prager demonizes the left, showing how little he understands about science, politics or religion. No wonder he’s a creationist.
Here are a number of quizzes to help you figure out where you are on the political compass. The most in-depth is this one.

https://www.isidewith.com/political-quiz

You can and should increase that depth wherever you can expand or extend it. That will make your results much more precise. There are also similar quizzes here:

https://www.proprofs.com/quiz-school/story.php?title=what-is-your-political-ideology_1

Although this last one has the compass literally upside-down and backwards: They have Authoritarianism on bottom and the left is shown on the right. Don’t ask me why. None of these however will tell you whether you’re a Democrat or Republican. For that, I guess you’ll just have to decide which one you think represents whatever you want to get furthest away from or don’t want to be associated with.

“We’re fluent in the languages of psychology and medication, but the word “depression” does not do justice to this human experience. Depression is also spiritual territory. It is a shadow side of human vitality and as such teaches us about vitality. And what if depression is possible for the same reason that love is possible?”

01) Lionhearted (2012)


“After a nuclear attack, the boy must become a man while his father is at war.”

If the war mongers ever obliterate this world, and most of the human species…

…one of the saddest things…is knowing that this is possibly the only way, intergenerational love could quickly become liberated…Most of the oppressors would be incinerated…and no longer there to torment aspiring lovers.

01) UPBRINGING DIFFERENCES IN COUNTRIES AROUND THE WORLD


“Do you wanna talk about education? No, no, don’t worry, we’re not gonna ask you how you’re doing at school or whether you cleaned the dishes after dinner. It’s much more interesting to look at the education systems around the world, because in every country children are treated differently. This depends on mentality, lifestyle and even the weather of each country. But how different is education, for example, in Mexico and in the US? Let’s figure it out. Let’s ge… Oh, wait. First, a small disclaimer: all the information in this video is taken from open sources, all approaches to the education are individual, so don’t blame us if you and your family do something different. Deal? Excellent”

“The sudden passionate happiness which the natural world can occasionally trigger in us,” Michael McCarthy writes, “may well be the most serious business of all.” He is a naturalist and journalist, and this is his delightful and galvanizing call — that we can stop relying on the immobilizing language of statistics and take up our joy in the natural world as our civilizational defense of it. With a perspective equally infused by science, reportage, and poetry, he reminds us that the natural world is where we evolved, where we found our metaphors and similes, and it is the resting place for our psyches.”
