Hi why did you send me a friend request?

Thank you. It's just the person's choice and no one has the right to decide what is right and wrong for another person. It's so sad that people don't understand the idea of choice when it comes to abortion, and that some would even go as far as to legislate an individuals private life.

Anarchy is a slippery slope. Complete anarchy would lead to complete chaos, which would lead to a loss of all of our freedoms. Freedom comes from state regulation, but such regulations should be limited so as to expand freedom and not allow the state to over step it's bounds. What society should really be focusing on is corporate and financial regulations, so that we have a functional economy that benefits the community, as opposed to being slaves to the mega-corporation, instead of focusing on anti-abortion laws that essentially seek to punish women for being women. The worse our economy gets, the more our consumer and workers rights are shredded, the more vocal the anti-choicer's get. It's like they are being used as a distraction.

Not only that all the money anti-abortion groups spend on the campaigns and such, could have been used to feed children who have no food and provide medical are for children who don't have any. If you really want to save lives, the last place you should look to save a life is a woman's vagina.

Alaina, anarchy does not lead to complete chaos.  Anarchy just means to eliminate centralized powers and to support individual expression and autonomy and self regulation. If we all did that in a natural way, then there would be no need for a big government.  Tribes are anarachist and even small groups of friends, even clicky ones are anarachist. If many different communities were anarachist, then perhaps they could also find a way to cooperate. the system of a centralized power may have benefits but it also has defects.  a person's self autonomy should never be so severely infringed upon like it is in today's so called democracys.

"Healthy living can reverse the telltale signs of ageing in your cells."

Posted on September 25, 2013 at 9:27pm 0 Comments

I occasionally read the New Scientist and came across an article (here) from last week. 



For the first time, tests have demonstrated that healthy living can help to slow or even reverse age related damage to cells. The participants (10 males in their 60s) in the trial were given a healthy living regime which included "...a…
