    42 Reasons to Hate the Universe and One Not To

    "Yes, the universe we live in is cosmically beautiful and mysterious and all that crap. But it's also a bit of an asshole. After all, remember that you are just a group of atoms structured in a specific way for barely long enough to try to understand this thing we call existence. Those atoms could just have easily been used to make the dog shit you're cleaning off your shoe or the mold that grows on your bread!"

    After Charlie Hebdo: Terror, Racism and Free Speech

    As the world looked on in horror at the Paris terror attacks of January and November 2015, France found itself at the centre of a war that has split across nations and continents. The attacks set in motion a steady creep towards ever more repressive state surveillance, and have fuelled the resurgence of the far right across Europe and beyond, while leaving the left dangerously divided.

    Moral Politics - How Liberals and Conservatives Think
    by
    George Lakoff

    The author is a cognitive scientist. He analyses the worldviews of conservatives and liberals. I think the approach is very interesting: looking at the language and metaphors used.

    He shows how both worldviews look at politics as similar to families. Conservatives use a 'strict father' model and liberals a 'nurturing parent' one.

    It is somewhat repetitive at times, but very much worth it so far.
