The origin of beauty

Russian novelist Fyodor Dostoyevsky wrote that “The world will be saved by beauty,” which leads us to ask two rhetorical questions: first, does this mean that the world is lost and, second, is ugliness to blame for its condition? Rhetorical questions require no answer, but what we can see for ourselves is that in their multiple forms — artistic, personal and moral — beauty and ugliness contend for cultural supremacy. Today the general consensus among humanistic thinkers is that a “cult of ugliness” prevails.

Scammers rely on distractions
Posted: December 03, 2016

The closer it gets to the holidays, the harder it is to concentrate on the nemesis of my existence — work. The constant bombardment of TV ads, sale after sale, the “end of year specials,” requests for donations to help the endangered snail population on some deserted island and those heart-tugging requests to make the season truly joyous for all the children and don’t forget the abandoned animals — all crowd into my head driving me to distraction. I have done my research and will make my donations/contributions where I feel it will do the most good.
