“Anucha Tasako: Death of 13-year-old boy in Thai boxing match sparks outcry over child fights.”

“Anucha had been fighting since the age of eight and had competed in 170 bouts, according to Thai media. The teenager, an orphan who lived with his uncle, used money made from fighting to pay for his schooling and help out with household expenses. He was knocked out by a punch in the third round of a charity bout.”

Too young to enjoy sex, but not too young to be exploited and to risk life-threatening injuries.”

…A lot of kids in this world [boys, most notably] get dumped on the frontlines of war as well…to fire bullets…and to take bullets, which maim or kill them.

So long as it serves their own ambitions…governments and people in power do whatever they please with kids…even when it kills the kids.

If the kid got robbed of all meaning and pleasures in life as result…they employ rhetoric, like the kid “died uncorrupted by the world”…

…But the kids life was decimated, by these self centered, megalomaniacs…and that’s a degree of corruption, for which there is no excuse…nor any fair compensation…It is evil…It is vile…It is wicked…One cannot sink to any lower depths of depravity, than that.

The countless boys who’ve been maimed and slaughtered at the hands of these people…would have been so much better off, in the care of a BoyLover…This point of fact is not even debatable.

It’s sickening to witness how this world abuses, missuses, consumes and discards boys…

…and has the gall to pretend, that love as an alternative to what they do…is somehow “worse”…or to be scoffed at.

Anucha Tasako died primarily for entertainment…

…Sure, there were financial and social motivations, which certainly pushed him into this pursuit…but these sports exist to entertain the population, and make a few people wealthy…People pay to see this, because it entertains them to watch it.

This death is senseless…and just another form of boy sacrifice, for financial advancement of a few…and the entertainment of many.

…It’s one of the ugliest forms of social hypocrisy.

The same issue exists, even with “lesser dangerous” organized sports programs.

A lot of kids get permanently maimed…sometimes suffering brain damage…or even the rare death…in football programs…baseball…etc…

They claim “the benefits outweigh the risks”…though, given that for most kids, their participation in the sport will only be a passing phase…I sometimes wonder about that…

…and why the risk of death or serious injury “is not so substantial a concern”, in these settings…

…When the same people arguing this will often lose their minds, over the tiniest possibility of risk, in other areas of a kids life…

…Then it’s inexplicably “a senseless and unspeakable risk”…

Chinese writer sentenced to 10 years in prison for homoerotic book…

Thanks to feinmann0!

“Chinese writer sentenced to 10 years in prison for homoerotic book.”

An authoress was imprisoned for writing about ‘boys love’ – no not boy love, but homoerotic fiction. The popularity of this genre “has soared in recent years in China, where a booming cottage industry of self-published authors churn out hundreds of new titles each month. The production and sale of pornography remains strictly prohibited in China. However, the harsh punishment given to Liu has caused outrage among social media users, many of whom have expressed anger at the apparent discrepancy between her sentence and those given to violent criminals, pointing out that under Chinese criminal law, rapists are liable to receive between three to ten years. Many users questioned the country’s conservative attitude and asked why the government felt the need to police people’s private lives.”

This is one of many things that happen, where people in government have lost their personal connection with humanity, and empathy…and respect for human life.

Fanatics would love to have this exact sort of thing happening, in the USA.

Waking Up with Sam Harris – #143 – The Keys to the Mind (with Derren Brown)…

01) Waking Up with Sam Harris – #143 – The Keys to the Mind (with Derren Brown)


“In this episode of the Waking Up podcast, Sam Harris speaks with Derren Brown about his work as a “psychological illusionist.” They discuss the power of hypnosis, the power of expectations, the usefulness of Stoic philosophy, and other topics.

Derren Brown began his UK television career in December 2000 with a series of specials called Mind Control. In the UK his name is now pretty much synonymous with the art of psychological manipulation. Amongst a varied and notorious TV career, Derren has played Russian Roulette live, convinced middle-managers to commit armed robbery, led the nation in a séance, stuck viewers at home to their sofas, successfully predicted the National Lottery, motivated a shy man to land a packed passenger plane at 30,000 feet, hypnotised a man to assassinate Stephen Fry, and created a zombie apocalypse for an unsuspecting participant after seemingly ending the world. He has also written several best-selling books and – a first in the history of magic – has toured with eight sell-out one-man stage shows. The shows have garnered a record-breaking five Olivier Award nominations for Best Entertainment, and won twice. This means Derren has had the largest number of nominations and wins for one-person shows in the history of the Awards. His 2017 US debut show SECRET won the New York Drama Desk Award for Unique Theatrical experience and is planning a Broadway return in 2019. His Latest book is Happy: Why More or Less Everything is Absolutely Fine.
