It is also a learned strategy of knowing, lying, scheming, plotting and trying to defeat. We become manipulated to know certain things since birth. Manipulated to live proper lives in set ways. Calculative and manipulative behavior is seen as intelligent as is cynicism, meanness and millions of ways to con. We become to know norms of society and what is stupid or clever and accepted ways to make it. We like to call our society intelligent as it is a highly evolved system. Logical and well-thought. Particular kind of accurate exact activity seems intelligent to us. We know where it is going. Someone makes a fortune out from scratch, dresses smartly, behaves correctly, builds a life of one’s own, knows what one wants can be intelligent. There is a lovely contradiction there as new and clever ideas may seem impossible and stupid, useless. Our society does not encourage to think in new ways, but it encourages to become well-off. For some that is the only way to be clever.
Unreported World – Peru Blood and Oil
It has taken this long for government of Peru to start awareness and worry over environment in rainforest area. Though they have not been worried over health of indians living in the area where oil is being drilled. People who began to die mysteriously. Clearly corrupt justice system and unjust laws do not exist to protect ordinary poor people, but large crooked companies like Pluspetrol and the wealthy. Situation has been and remains the same and critical. Same old story continues as indigenous Peoples are oppressed and abused and do not profit from exploitation of natural resources. They remain exploited and killed. Weak governments help and support large companies to thrive for few to prosper. It is hard to believe Peru’s government of not having enough information about the situation. Indigenous people have been fighting against being poisoned by ill capitalist bastards for years.
“We know that there has been bad environmental behaviour by the company in the past because there were no regulations but also in the present because it’s not acting responsibly and it’s not giving the correct information about what’s happening in the zone,” Peru’s environment minister Manuel Pulgar-Vidal said of Pluspetrol to local media. http://www.theguardian.com/environment/2013/mar/26/peru-declares-environmental-emergency-rainforest
“Learn the art of Charm & Cheek: Kitty Cavalier’s School of Charm & Cheek is for women who want to learn how to reclaim those two elements as a source of power and to know themselves more deeply and intimately. She explains that Charm is the sensation of pleasing or delight, and Cheek is endearingly irreverent. They’re the Ying & Yang of living a really fun & joyous life. Too much charm can be cute & pretty but you always need a little cheek”. – See more at: http://www.elisemcdowell.com/2013/06/how-to-love-your-flaws-and-adore-your-body.html#sthash.ox7s83m3.dpuf
