A former Russian lawyer named Yuri Alexeev got sick of his busy, high-stress life in the city. So one day, he quit and dug himself a “rabbit hole” 60 miles outside of Moscow.

He lives there with a pet white rabbit and now refers to himself as “a human living on planetEarth.”

Why Aborigines Don’t Have Words for “Please” or “Thank You”

In a clip from the new documentary film Human, an aboriginal Australian man says his people never used words like “please” or “thank you” or “mine” until recently:




Why Thanksgiving is a National Day of Mourning for Native Americans

November 23, 2016 at 3:37 pm




The first Thanksgiving marks the beginning of Native Americans’ ongoing genocide, and this Thanksgiving could mark the end for the Lakota tribe, if we don’t stop the pipeline!

As we prepare for our warm turkey dinners today, Native Americans are being blasted with water cannons in freezing cold temperatures in North Dakota.

In recent months they’ve also been pepper sprayed, tear gassed, attacked by dogs, shot with rubber bullets, hit with concussion grenades, followed by drones, thrown in jail and locked in dog kennels – all for peacefully protesting corporate theft of their land and water.

Worshipers of the great God of civilisation – Technology – are destroying the planet and the life forms – human and non-human, flora and fauna – that inhabit this little ball of rock in the Milky Way galaxy. They will reduce this once thriving, living, biotic-community to a dystopian nothingness akin to that of cyber-punk science fiction.

Atmospheric Carbon Levels Just Hit the Point of No Return

October 4, 2016 at 2:45 am

It’s not “the end of the world,” just the end of the world as we know it… and maybe that’s a good thing





Polar Bear and global warmingAtmospheric carbon levels have hit what some scientists have called “the point of no return” – the point at which no amount of cutbacks on greenhouse gas emissions will save us from potentially catastrophic global warming.

March marked the first time atmospheric carbon levels remained at 400 ppm or higher for a month straight, and as of the end of September (when carbon levels usually take a dip), Scripps Institute of Oceanography is predicting we won’t be seeing a monthly average below 400 ppm anytime this year or perhaps “ever again for the indefinite future.”

Cell Phones Are the New Blood Diamonds

7-year-old children mine the minerals used to make our cell phones and laptops




Half of the workforce of the artisanal mining sector is comprised of children. Without viable economic alternatives, most children must join their parents in rudimentary mining pits. Children as young as two years transport, wash, and crush minerals to earn half a dollar a day.

The cell phone or laptop you’re likely reading this on came at a much higher cost than the dollar amount you paid for it. Millions of African men, women and children have shed their blood so that we “first-world” citizens can have the luxury of “the world at our fingertips.”

Nationwide Prison Labor Strike: Prisons are the New Plantations and the Slaves Have Had Enough

Nationwide prison labor strike staged on anniversary of Attica Uprising.

The largest prisoner strike in history happened last week and you didn’t hear anything about it from the corporate-owned media, who don’t want you to know – prison labor is the new American slavery.

Earlier this summer I wrote an article explaining how American slavery never ended – the laborers just moved from plantations to prisons. Black men are still in the fields picking cotton, and black women are still assembling women’s undergarments for no pay, in both private and public prisons who rent out their inmates’ free or super cheap labor to private corporations. The article above gives a full list of corporations who benefit from this labor.

The modern abolition movement has begun. Prisoners across 40 prison facilities in 24 states – most of them African American – went on labor and hunger strikes Friday to protest forced labor, inadequate food, lack of healthcare, overcrowding, extended stays in solitary confinement and guard brutality.

The U.S. Bureau of Land Management voted to kill 44,000 of the 67,000 total wild horses in the country to make room for more beef cattle last Friday.

The vote came two months after beef industry representatives testified on Capitol Hill, demanding that the agency kill all 44,000 wild horses currently held captive in BLM holding facilities and round-up the majority of the rest for sterilization.

‘Dakota Access’ Oil Pipeline Temporarily Halted by Largest Native American Protest in History

nodapl-protest

The construction of a thousand-mile oil pipeline through the heart of the country has prompted the largest Native American protest in history. Indigenous Americans from all over the United States and Canada have gathered near the source of the pipeline – a large fracking site in North Dakota – to protect their ancestral lands, rivers and lakes from pollution and destruction.

The pipeline – which the U.S. Government quietly approved last month – will cut right through sacred burial grounds, prayer sites and rivers and lakes native peoples still rely on for their survival.

‘Ideal Global Population Under 2 Billion,’ Sustainability Experts Say

September 6, 2016 at 11:29 pm




When people argue overpopulation is a myth, their arguments typically revolve around the amount of “open” space on earth not yet occupied by humans.pewsg80mndk1p441pyjd

They say things like – “Ever flown across the country and seen all the vacant land between New York and California?” or “Did you know every single person on Earth could fit into the State of Texas?”
