Contrarians are people who, on principle, will take the position or opinion opposite the one you just expressed.

The most annoying part about a contrarian is that the subjects and the opinions about these subjects are completely irrelevant to them. Continue reading Contrarians Are Mean →
Not everything is progress just because it can be invented.

For a while a man went around different places in the village, rang a big bell and told people the local news in a loud voice. Once newspapers could be printed again, the news cryers became obsolete.

There is so much to do.
Everywhere I look there are people to help, animals and plants to preserve, messes to clean up and on top of it to live a life I love.
Where to start?
We have to choose where to make a difference.
