Natural Selection: Who Deserves to Rule Human Society?

Natural Selection: Who Deserves to Rule Human Society?

 

“And if you call me brother now, forgive me if I ask –

‘According to whose plan?’

When it all comes down to dust,

I will kill you if I must. I will help you if I can.

When it all comes down to dust,

I will help you if I must. I will kill you if I can.”

Leonard Cohen, Song of Isaac (1969)

EDITORIAL: The CBC -- Boon or Boondoggle?

The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) is Canada's national radio and television broadcaster -- loved by many, reviled by others.  Its exact date of origin may be open to interpretation; its predecessor, the Canadian Radio Broadcasting Commission, was established as a state-owned company  in 1932, following a  1929 report  that raised concerns about  Canadian airwaves being taken over by American radio.  In 1936, the organization was re-created as a Crown Corporation and re-branded with its present name.

Too much stuff?

How much stuff will you give and receive this holiday season? Add it to the growing pile — the 30-trillion-tonne pile. That’s how much technology and goods humans have produced, according to a study by an international team led by England’s University of Leicester. It adds up to more than all living matter on the planet, estimated at around four trillion tonnes.

See video

Thanks to the Seven Summits Centre for Learning (Seven Summits), Rossland still has Kindergarten to Grade 12  (K -12) education within its city limits.  When School District 20 decided to close Maclean Elementary School, sell that building and move its former students into the former Rossland Secondary School building, and bus Grade 10, 11 and 12 students down the hill to the brand-new J.L Crowe Secondary School, a group of Rosslanders dedicated to maintaining K - 12 education within Rossland got busy. Very busy.  And so Seven Summits was born.

Christmas just the start of exciting happenings at Kootenay Gallery

The Kootenay Gallery may appear to be all about the holidays right now, with its renowned Christmas exhibit and sale, but behind-the-scenes happenings involve a great deal more than December celebrations.

In a presentation to city council last week, board member Audrey Maxwell Polovnikoff said the focus is now on the massive undertaking of finding the gallery a new home.

COLUMN: On the Quality of Public Discourse, and the Difference Between Debate and Dialogue

A portion of the cover of James Hoggan's book, "I'm Right and You're an Idiot -- the toxic state of public discourse, and how to clean it up."

The U.S. election was a chilling illustration of the atrocious state of public discourse. It doesn’t bode well for a country once admired for leadership in education and science.

Deconstructing the US Election

Deconstructing the US Election

A quick glance over current headlines: madness and dread

“You spread your paranoia, all over this land –

Creating situations you don’t understand…

You’ve got to stop flashing pictures of the People.

Stop! Flashing pictures of the Power!”

-- Tom Fogarty, Goodbye Media Man [1968]

In times of apparent madness, the insane person adapts to reality more effectively than the rational one.”
