Mind Over Matter? Or Matter Over Mind?

Evolution is something that’s ripe for a greater public understanding. This is likely a daunting task because it’s a large enough area of science for there to be a great deal of misunderstanding even among its experts. Evolution is a topic that should be presented with a level of humility and depth so that the general public doesn’t become overconfident with misunderstandings about biology. Solving the problems in this domain are likely to yield some broader solutions for both philosophical and scientific understanding generally and we will all be better for it.

Socialism has been topical in the modern era with interest in it waxing and waning from year to year, decade to decade throughout the last two hundred years or so.

Although anarchism has its roots in a revolution, there isn’t anything about the idea which suggests a call for violence or war. Rather, it calls for a radical growth in the use of reason and political participation. It calls for a sense of personal responsibility and the cultivation of improved self-direction and cooperation. For anyone who might be concerned about the corruption of authority and recognizes that society must be organized in one form or another, anarchism should seem reasonable, if not practical.
