It’s about the Journey #Blogg100

Jacque Fresco and Steven Pinker is two of our greatest modern thinkers

I have been listening to some more great episodes of London Real. It’s all about the Journey.

“Life is a lesson you’ll learn it when your through” — Limp Bizkit

Everything Changes

I came across them talking to the now 96 year old Jacque Fresco and the Venus Project. Check him out on London Real. Also see his speech from Stockholm 2010.

Whatever happens in the world is real, what one thinks should have happened is projection. We suffer more from our fictitious illusion and expectations of reality. — Jacque Fresco

Linguistic thinkers

They also give very good conversation with Steven Pinker. Check it out here Steven Pinker – Too Much Morality?
Steven Pinker is a linguistic who studies what it means to be human. Just like we have Fredrik Lindström here in Sweden who talks about What is a human [Vad är en människa].

In his latest book The Better Angel of our Nature he shows us, that contrary to popular belief, violence of all kinds are at a mush lower rate in human society than it have ever been during our entire history. Only the picture we get through Mass Media will tell us differently.

There is hope for us humans that we can get along in a reasonably peaceful society here on earth if the resource wars don’t get out of hand.
