About Genocide http://www.grisanik.com/blog/about-genocide/ Not long ago, I reported a Twitter hate bot spreading hate speech. The specific offensive tweet had a Japanese Nazi background, saying something about China committing war crimes against the Japanese. Now, somehow, for ultranationalists and racist people around the world, it is easy to turn a blind eye. During WW2, the Japanese committed mass murder in China, called the Nanking Massacre, killing more than 300,000 people. Reportedly, army commanders had a contest for who could kill more than 100 people with ...

Media Viral Trends http://www.grisanik.com/blog/media-viral-trends/ Lately, the Internet is booming with global-scale psychology experiments. You can call them marketing campaigns or viral media hypes, but, regardless, they all have a common factor. They all exploit the limits of human beings. Discussion about blue/golden dress, colour of the purse , controversy abut complimentary stay in hotel as a Blogger or Putin ... is it all part of the ...

Freedom to choose the way you live your life http://www.grisanik.com/blog/freedom-to-choose-the-way-you-live-your-life/ Depends solely on what you believe in. You may believe that you have free will, and you could live your entire life in that belief. Just because of that belief, you could have a life that has more risks. Equally, you could have a boring life, deprived of risks, believing that you have chosen your life as it is, as that suits your ...

Climate Change Defeatism http://www.grisanik.com/blog/climate-change-defeatism/ Guy R. McPherson is known for his alarmist attitude about global warming, and, although I do not have anything against voicing warnings when danger is real, I am strongly against defeatism or public speech that promotes that all actions are futile. Please listen this video until 17:30 and then continue: ...

The Importance of Efficiency http://www.grisanik.com/blog/the-importance-of-efficiency/ All climate change effects would be less harmful with greater efficiency. It is said that, worldwide, we waste approximately 60% of energy and 35% of all the food we make. What does that mean? In terms of energy, that means that, for every 10 gallons of fuel we burn, we waste 6 gallons. Also, it means that if we would use that energy better, we would, on average, travel 625 miles, instead 250 miles with the above-mentioned 10 gallons of fuel. If we take that a gallon of gasoline costs $3.50, instead of paying $87.50 for a 625-mile trip, we would pay $35. In the grand scheme of things, it also means that there would be fewer tanker trips and that overall we would ...

The Same Belief - Opposite Views http://www.grisanik.com/blog/the-same-belief---opposite-views/ After death, each religion offers something — some kind of hope that there will be a more after we die. For instance, Hinduism offers a reward in the form of reunion and rejoicing with the Godhead (Atman, universal spirit, universe...). Christianity is trying to convince us that a person’s soul will enjoy or suffer for eternity in paradise or hell, based on how that person lived life. Islam, under the influence of Christianity, teaches a very similar thing. In Judaism, there is a promise that souls and bodies will be resurrected when God decides ...

About Growth http://www.grisanik.com/blog/about-growth/ From time to time, I hear people saying, almost bragging, “I have grown so much,” or they say it comparing with their partners: “It is difficult when one person grows and the other does not follow,” complaining about their relationships. Each time I hear it, the thought crosses my mind, “They haven’t grown at all.” Whatever they grew, they boosted their ego as well, so, in total, as those characteristics cancel each other out, nothing really ...

Leaves Sequestering – Ecological and other dangers http://www.grisanik.com/blog/leaves-sequestering---ecological-and-other-dangers/ The main purpose of this post is to answer a few concerns raised by people with an ecology background. At the beginning, it is helpful to grasp that, in order to understand complex concepts, parallel thinking is necessary—or at least holding multiple concepts at the same time. Unfortunately, even with graphs and videos, that is not possible, so it is necessary to read a text a few times in full and learn its concepts. If it was a computer source code, we would need to test run the programme multiple times with different parameters, and the aggregated result of those runs would give ...
