I'm going to Hell! - Voy a ir al Infierno! con Isabel Serrato




 

 I'm going to hell!

I’ll announce, will go to hell

with the women that do what they say

and say what they think,

to women’s hell Maverick

and her politically incorrectness 

to unbalanced women's hell

and the misfits,

the hell of the ones that

despite torture

could not fail to be authentic ...

I'm going to hell!

with people madly in love with life

and not ashamed of it,

with people living without contracts

Paperless,

with the lovers

with the ill for freedom

and the lonely.

I'm going to hell!

with those who fight everyday

with the ones without limits (and will never have them).


I'm going to hell!

with feminist

with poets

with independent

with dissidents,

with the ones that never found their place

-in the celestial sphere-

with the lost

the outcasts

the orphan

the experienced

with the strong

with the hippies

and destitute.

I'm going to hell!

and if by chance,

I do not ...

Please, take me!

Voy a ir al infierno!



Lo anuncio, voy a ir al infierno

con las que hacen lo que dicen

y dicen lo que piensan,

al infierno de las inconformistas

y las políticamente incorrectas,

al infierno de las desequilibradas

y las inadaptadas,

al infierno de las que

a pesar de la tortura

no pudieron dejar de ser auténticas...

Voy a ir al infierno!

con la gente que ama locamente la vida

y no se averguenza de ello,

con la gente que vive sin contratos

sin papeles,

con las amantes

con las enfermas de libertad

y las solitarias.

Voy a ir al infierno!

con las que luchan todos los días

con las que no tienen límites (y no piensan ponérselos).

Voy a ir al infierno!

con las feministas

con las poetas

con las independientes

con las disidentes

con las que nunca encontraron su sitio
-en la esfera celeste-

con las perdidas

con las parias

con las huérfanas

con las experimentadas

con las fuertes

con las hippies

y las indigentes.

Voy a ir al infierno!

y si por un casual,

no voy...

¡Por favor, llévenme!

Victoria speaks to Brava about Women Equality.


 “It is in vain to say human beings ought to be satisfied with tranquility: they must have action; and they will make it if they cannot find it. Millions are condemned to a stiller doom than mine, and millions are in silent revolt against their lot. Nobody knows how many rebellions besides political rebellions ferment in the masses of life which people earth. Women are supposed to be very calm generally: but women feel just as men feel; they need exercise for their faculties, and a field for their efforts, as much as their brothers do; they suffer from too rigid a restraint, to absolute a stagnation, precisely as men would suffer; and it is narrow-minded in their more privileged fellow-creatures to say that they ought to confine themselves to making puddings and knitting stockings, to playing on the piano and embroidering bags. It is thoughtless to condemn them, or laugh at them, if they seek to do more or learn more than custom has pronounced necessary for their sex.”
Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre

Is cognitive dissonance the reason believers get angry at atheist?

Es la enseñanza religiosa-Abuso infantil?



Fue en una conferencia en Dublín en la que el profesor Richard Dawkins declaró que el adoctrinamiento de niños es "peor que el abuso sexual". La declaración causó estupor, y aprobación unánime de los asistentes que suspiraron frente a alguien que por fin se atrevía a decir lo que todos saben. El profesor Dawkins siempre cita este hecho en sus variadas intervenciones para dejar en claro que amplios sectores de la opinión pública la enseñanza religiosa es vista como algo atroz.

Denme al niño los primeros años de su vida, y yo les devolveré un hombre, decía uno de los fundadores de una secta crística en la Edad Oscura. Así como el marxismo necesita adoctrinar niños para preservar su sistema, la religión también hace lo mismo. Esto explica por qué subsiste en los países menos educados, donde no hay libertad educacional, sino que los pocos colegios son propiedad de las entidades mitológicas.

Lejos de ser un detalle, lo anterior explica por qué la religiosidad se transmite de generación en generación. El niño normalmente obedece a sus padres, es un mecanismo biológico que permite la preservación de la especie. "No te acerques a la baranda", dice la mamá, y el niño hace caso, porque estamos programados para obedecer a nuestros padres. Es en la tierna infancia cuando las experiencias dejan una marca indeleble. Es aquí cuando el cerebro de un niño se contamina con las doctrinas religiosas. Al no tener capacidad de discernimiento, la religiosidad infecta la mente y el daño perdura hasta la adultez. 


A todos nos causaría horror que un padre diga "mi hijo Pedrito, de 5 años, es marxista", o "mi nieta Paulita, de 7 años, ya es monetarista", o "Juanito ya a los 4 años se sabe al revés y al derecho las enseñanzas de Keynes". Un niño no está preparado para comprender estas cosas.


Del mismo modo, registrar a los bebés en las iglesias debe considerarse una forma de agresión, intelectual en este caso, y aquí se aplica el principio del daño de John Stuart Mill: en una sociedad civilizada, es legítimo actuar en contra de un individuo para evitar que dañe a otros. Un padre que azota y da de puñetes a su hijo debe ser sancionado. Una familia que expone a temprana edad a sus hijos a teorías abstrusas o decididamente sanguinarias, como por ejemplo, que matar a Jesús nos absuelve de un pecado cometido antes de que naciéramos.


 Los creyentes son sujetos que sufren de delirio, un cuadro psicológico incubado en la infancia. Esta es su definición:

Todos hemos visto a un creyente afirmando que una Virgen se aparece, y argumentan que sí es posible, de hecho, están completamente seguros. Es necesario proteger a los pequeños y mantenerlos alejados de los promotores del cristianismo. Los niños son incapaces de protegerse por sí mismos, ¿no es acaso una forma de abuso infantil?

The XL Pipeline bill fails to pass and Native Americans chant in celebration



The controversial “Keystone XL pipeline bill” failed to pass on Tuesday after the U. S. Senate defeated the bill with 59 Yea and 41 Nay. 
The bill, a measure introduced by the House of Representatives, needed a 60 vote count to pass.  All 45 Republicans and 14 Democrats voted in favor but it was not enough for the bill to pass.  In a recent speech President Barack Obama rejected the bill and it was believed that had the bill passed, he would had vetoed it.
                                   


The bill would have allowed TransCanada, A multibillion dollar oil corporation, to construct a US$8 billion dollar pipeline to transport crude oil from Canada to the Gulf of Mexico.


Environmentalists and Native Americans were protesting the bill since it was first introduced to the House of Representatives and were outside the Senate when the announcement was made that the Keystone Vote failed.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) was presiding over the Senate, and was asking the Senate to move to executive session was interrupted by one protester, who was later identified by the Washington Post as Greg Graycloud of the Lakota Tribe in South Dakota.
The Native American chant was heard throughout the floor and it was a symbol of celebration.
           
According to the environmentalist group, Friends of Earth, the construction of a pipeline would had been disastrous for our planet. 
In an article on their website FOE.org the group listed some of the alarming reasons why this bill could have damaged the planet:  

      
                
 
Dirty tar sands oil
Pollution from tar sands oil greatly eclipses that of conventional oil. During tar sands oil production alone, levels of carbon dioxide emissions are three to four times higher than those of conventional oil, due to more energy-intensive extraction and refining processes. The Keystone XL pipeline would have carried 830,000 barrels of dirty tar sands oil into the United States daily, and resulted in climate-damaging emissions equal to adding more than 5.6 million new cars to U.S. roads.
                                          Water waste and pollution
During the tar sands oil extraction process, vast amounts of heat, water and chemicals are needed to separate the tarry substance (known as bitumen) from sand, silt, and clay and to flow up the pipeline. The water used in the process comes from rivers and underground aquifers. It takes three barrels of water to extract each single barrel of oil. Ninety-five percent of the water used to extract the oil, which is about 2.4 million barrels per day, is so polluted that the water must be stored in large human-made pools, known as tailing ponds. As the heavy bitumen sinks to the bottom of these ponds, the toxic sludge, full of harmful substances like cyanide and ammonia, works its way into neighboring clean water supplies.
                                                Forest Destruction
The tar sands oil are underneath the world’s largest intact ecosystem, the Boreal forests of Alberta. The forests not only serve as an important carbon sink, but its biodiversity and unspoiled bodies of water support large populations of many different species. They are a buffer against climate change, as well as food and water shortages. However, in the process of digging up tar sands oil, the forests are destroyed. This valuable forest and its endangered caribou are both threatened by the pipeline.
                                                Indigenous populations

Northern Alberta, the region where tar sands oil is extracted, is home to many indigenous populations. Important parts of their cultural traditions and livelihood are coming under attack because of tar sands operations. Not only have indigenous communities been forced off of their land, but also those living downstream from tailing ponds have seen spikes in rates of rare cancers, renal failure, lupus, and hyperthyroidism. In the lakeside village of Fort Chipewyan, for example, 100 of the town’s 1,200 residents have died from cancer.

These problems will only get worse, unless tar sands production is halted. Investing in a new pipeline would increase the rate of production, while decreasing the quality of life for indigenous populations.
Pipeline spills
The Keystone XL pipeline would traverse six U.S. states and cross major rivers, including the Missouri River, Yellowstone, and Red Rivers, as well as key sources of drinking and agricultural water, such as the Ogallala Aquifer which supplies water to more than one fourth of America’s irrigated land and provides drinking water for two million Americans.



            In the end, the celebration comes from the heart of those who believe the planet is in state of emergency, and the vote rejecting the Keystone pipeline gives environmentalist a new hope that our country is moving towards oil independence and a greener environment.
