How do you deal with a bully without becoming a thug? In this wise and soulful talk, peace activist Scilla Elworthy maps out the skills we need — as nations and individuals — to fight extreme force without using force in return. To answer the question of why and how nonviolence works, she evokes historical heroes — Aung San Suu Kyi, Mahatma Gandhi, Nelson Mandela — and the personal philosophies that powered their peaceful protests.

Part I questions religions as being god-given stories, arguing that the Christian religion specifically is mainly derived from other religions, astronomical facts, astrological myths and traditions, which in turn were derived from or shared elements with others. In furtherance of the Jesus myth hypothesis, this part argues that the historical Jesus is a literary and astrological hybrid, nurtured politically. The work of Acharya S, author of The Christ Conspiracy: The Greatest Story Ever Sold, was used extensively in part I of the movie. She also acted as consultant only for part I of the movie.
Great movie to keep you headed in the right direction through lifes challenges.
Very good lessons learned from consumer business. To religion being a great source of direction on the pursuit of happiness. Acknowledging the power of self vs. relaying on anyone to help get you to your goal. Because once you start relaying on someone/something, you become less self-sustainable. Shows me to worry less about myself and more about the impact we can make on the great good. Follow the golden rule: “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you”.
For many people, they’re not even sure what happiness is. And so, inspired and intrigued by this “unalienable” right, director Andrew Shapter set out to explore the myths and the truths of the “pursuit of Happiness” in America.…
5 FEBRUARY 2010 – EXPERIMENT ENDS
After a week of web-less living, our two volunteer families are back online.
Another visit from Korea Telecom’s Mr Song is all it took, and with the return of the internet modems to their rightful places, the homes were rewired to the digital super-highway.
Sighs of relief all round.
Both families spoke of a major sense of inconvenience trying to navigate the complexity of modern-day Korea without it.
After just seven days, no surprise, of course, that their world didn’t grind to a halt.
But our little experiment has shown how the internet has become an integral part of so many aspects of daily life here; leisure, education, transport, banking, shopping and socialising.
The Yang family have rediscovered reading from books – but still want their computers back
For the Kims and the Yangs, like many other South Korean families, it takes up a large proportion of their waking hours.
Mr Kim hopes that the experience will help his children to “become more wise” in the amount of time they spend at the computer keyboard.
Mr Yang says that being cut off has allowed him to “rediscover lost time.”
Would any of them recommend …

What I am about to tell you is something you’ve probably never heard or will ever read in history books. I believe that I am an eyewitness to history. I cannot tell you that Hitler took Austria by tanks and guns; it would distort history. We elected him by a landslide – 98% of the vote.. I’ve never read that in any American publications. Everyone thinks that Hitler just rolled in with his tanks and took Austria by force.
In 1938, Austria was in deep Depression. Nearly one-third of our workforce was unemployed. We had 25% inflation and 25% bank loan interest rates.
Farmers and business people were declaring bankruptcy daily. Young people were going from house to house begging for food. Not that they didn’t want to work; there simply weren’t any jobs. My mother was a Christian woman and believed in helping people in need. Every day we cooked a big kettle of soup and baked bread to feed those poor, hungry people – about 30 daily.
The Communist Party and the National Socialist Party were fighting each other. Blocks and blocks of cities like Vienna , Linz , and Graz were destroyed. The people became desperate and …
