Referendum pentru familie - pozitia unui non-colaborationist

Ca sa fiu clar – nu suport asa-zisul “#referendum pentru familie”! Dar e mai mult decit atit. Nu as da curs, in acest context de nefireasca criza morala, nici macar unui vot popular pentru un amarit de “1 =1”!!!!!! Pentru ca acceptarea unei asemenea invitatii prin filiera PSD/Dragnea si mafiei distrugatorilor Romaniei o consider a fi impotriva intereselor tarii - iar pentru mine personal ar insemna un colaborationism pe care nu mi l-as putea ierta. 

Oricare ar fi tema referendumului, ni se cere - de facto - sa lasam la o parte contexul violarii si dezechilibrarii constante a Romaniei de catre baroni! Asta este miza. Biserica ar fi trebuit sa fi fost prima care sa faca un pas inapoi si sa recomande asteptarea unei perioade de o minima sanatate sociala pentru o cintarirea unei chestiuni in care e evident interesata. Dar nu o face – si nu e de mirare caci din pacate caracatita politico-fanariota are tentacule si in institutiile religioase (fapt cunoscut). Revenind la context, mi se pare curioasa (sau lipsita de viziune) pozitia unora care spun ca merg la referendum dar sunt anti-PSD (nu mai vorbesc de faptul ca multi dintre cei ce spun asta nu prea au dat pina acum semnale puternice mediatice impotriva mafiei coruptilor). 

Nu te poti separa de context: nu demult oameni de cultura (filozofi, matematicieni, etc) si-au pierdut statutul moral cind au continuat sa activeze profesional participand in acelasi timp in programe/institutii organizate de nazisti. Deci nu poti separa asemenea chestii. Nici nu poti spune ca vreau doar sa vad, la rece, care e opinia populara. Sigur, insa de ce nu il numesti sondaj? Si daca, ipotetic, opinia populara se va schimba la un moment dat, se va sustine cu un aplomb similar un alt referendum pentru schimbarea la loc? Oricum, indiferent daca referendumul va trece sau nu, oricare rezultat va fi virusat pe termen lung de conflictul social-moral in care suntem afundati. Cel putin ma voi considera non-colaborationist (nu ca ar fi mare lucru, fiind doar unul din multi – dar cel putin ma voi considera fericit pentru un timp).

Triple Neck Song - John Paul Jones

Partitions, Dyson, and Ramanujan - George Andrews

In 2013, Freeman Dyson celebrates his ninetieth birthday and also marks his sixtieth year as a Professor at the Institute for Advanced Study. Dreams of Earth and Sky, conceived by Dyson’s colleagues in the School of Natural Sciences, was an opportunity to provide a perspective on his work and impact across the sciences and humanities. Held on the Institute campus from September 27-28, the program featured a range of talks on mathematics, physics, astronomy, and public affairs that reflect both the diversity of Dyson’s interests and his ability to open new dialogues and inspire generations of scholars. https://video.ias.edu/dyson-dreams

Being lazy is a sign of high intelligence (study)

'Results of the study revealed the thinking group were far less active than the non-thinkers'

"Findings from a US-based study seem to support the idea that people with a high IQ get bored less easily, leading them to spend more time engaged in thought."
