Towards the Abolition of Suffering - David Pearce [UKH+] (1/7) Reflections on the Abolitionist Project The Transhumanist Declaration advocates "the well-being of all sentience, including humans, non-human animals, and any future artificial intellects, modified life forms, or other intelligences to which technological and scientific advance may give rise." Yet is "the well-being of all sentience" serious science - or just utopian dreaming? What does such a commitment entail? On what kind of realistic timeframe might we command enough computational power to police an entire ecosystem? In this talk, the speaker wants to review recent progress in understanding the neurobiology of pleasure, pain and our core emotions. Can mastery of our reward circuity ever deliver socially responsible, intelligent bliss rather than crude wireheading? He also wants to examine and respond to criticisms of the abolitionist project that have been levelled over the past decade - and set out the biggest challenges, as he sees them, to the prospect of a totally cruelty-free world. Link to the transhumanist declaration (2009 version): ** About the speaker David Pearce is an independent researcher and vegan animal activist based in Brighton UK. In 1995, he wrote an online manifesto, The Hedonistic Imperative, advocating the use of biotechnology to abolish suffering throughout the living world. David predicts that our descendants will be animated by gradients of cerebral bliss orders of magnitude richer than anything accessible today. David has ...

Stop Welfare Abolition - DWP Occupied! On the morning of March 9th, a group of determined LCAP (London Coalition Against Poverty) campaigners and Feminist Fightback raided the Department for Work and Pensions in Central London, in response to the recently proposed Welfare Reform Act . The building was blockaded at both the front and side entrances between the hours of 11am and 2pm. As the government has bailed out the banks and rewarded the bosses with big bonuses they have been stealthily pushing through a bill that will virtually abolish welfare for single parents and disabled people. Poor people are being made to pay for the financial crisis caused by the rich. The bill proposes a number of Draconian changes including: * Introducing a compulsory work for benefits system in a US-style workfare scheme * Privatising more of the JobCentre Plus to companies which will be paid more the less benefits they award. * Increased punishments for claimants * Cuts on carers allowance * Forced 2-parent registration on birth certificates, including for survivors on violence The third reading is expected near the end of March. We need to stand with those targeted to oppose the passing of this bill by taking dissent to the streets, to the government offices, to the bankers and the bosses.
Spanish Prime Minister calls for the abolition of the death penalty worldwide by 2015 United Nations, New York, 24 February 2010 - (Translation below) SOUNDBITE (Spanish) Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero, Prime Minister, Spain: It is unfortunate that there are still numerous places today where the death penalty is still applied and we need to work hard to step up our efforts for its universal abolition. SOUNDBITE (Spanish) Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero, Prime Minister, Spain: My friends we have 5 years to achieve our goal -- to stop executions around the world: If we work together it is a goal within our reach. Addressing the World Congress Against the Death Penalty meeting in Geneva today, the Prime Minister of Spain, whose country currently holds the presidency of the European Union, said it was unfortunate that today numerous countries still continue to apply the death penalty. The two-day congress, organized by the French NGO Ensemble together with the Swiss government, and the World Coalition Against the Death Penalty, aimed to persuade more countries to sign up to a United Nations (UN) moratorium on the death penalty. Referring to the death penalty as state sanctioned murder, Bianca Jagger, goodwill ambassador for the Council of Europe said she was shocked at the continued application of the death penalty in the United States (US), saying only when the US got its own house in order can it claim to stand for freedom and justice. The Norwegian Vice Minister of Foreign Affairs, Gry Larsen, said the world was at a turning point with an ever growing shift ...

1863 American Civil War Token New York and Abolition of Slavery Tokens 18th Century & 19th Century 1863 American Civil War Token, George Washington Some original lusture still present. Year of Issue: 1863 Location: New York Check out John's Civil War video at: Check out Will's video at: Lots more tokens reviewed at: Find out more about this item and others at: Above is a classic 1863 American Civil War token. Much of its original lustre is still present, although it doesn't show up well in the scan. A portrait of George Washington is on the obverse and the inscription "New York" appears on the reverse. Tokens are often produced when a government or monarch fail to produce enough low denomination coinage. This commonly seems to occur during civil wars although it is possible for tokens to flourish in less violent times, such as the Industrial Revolution. Unlike normal coinage, tokens are produced by businesses and private organisations, demonstrating how free markets can come to the rescue when centralised monetary systems fail to cope. The companies that produced tokens soon realised that they could advertise their products on them. Political messages were also inscribed on them, such as the abolition of taxes and black slavery. The pictorial messages on these tokens were a very effective form of mass communication during a time when television didn't exist and most people were illiterate. Remember that the average coin can pass through thousands of peoples' hands in its lifetime ...

Christopher and Peter Hitchens on The Abolition of Britain (1999) October 14, 1999 More Hitchens: The Abolition of Britain is the first book by conservative journalist Peter Hitchens. Originally published in 1999, it charts and examines a period of moral and cultural reform between the 1960s and the New Labour general election win in 1997. Hitchens asserts that the reforms facilitated vast and radical constitutional change under Tony Blair's new government that amounted to a "slow motion coup d'état." The book was described by Francis Wheen in Literary Review as "a plangent lament for the Old Britain," cited by Gillian Bowditch in The Times as being a major modern work to dissect "the decline in British morals and manners over the past 50 years," and identified by Andrew Marr in The Observer as "the most sustained, internally logical and powerful attack on Tony Blair and all his works." The Abolition of Britain is a conservative polemic against the changes in the United Kingdom since the mid-1960s. It contrasts the funerals of Winston Churchill (1965) and Diana, Princess of Wales (1997), using these two related but dissimilar events, three decades apart, to illustrate the enormous cultural changes that took place in the intervening period. His argument is that Britain underwent a "cultural revolution", comparable to that of China in the 1960s. He describes and criticises the growing strength of such forces as multiculturalism, which still had a liberal consensus behind it at the time the book ...
"The Abolition of Man" Simplified Part 1 "Men Without Chests" I attempt to explain, in five minutes, the first part of CS Lewis's incredible philosophy book, "The Abolition of Man" and it's vitally important message about ethics and value judgments. My remarks: The Abolition of Man is a short philosophy book by CS Lewis, one of the greatest Christian writers of the 20th century. Many people know he was a friend of JRR Talkien. Most people only remember him for his Chronicles of Narnia books but it's his non-fiction that he ought to be remembered for. That's what people in England wanted to hear on the radio while the Blitz was going on outside. Lewis was a classicist which means he agreed with Plato and Aristotle alot and considered himself a converted pagan in a world of apostate Christians. He had a way of introducing paradigm shifts that turn modern thought completely around. Rather than vainly trying to hit unbelievers over the head with the authority of scripture as so many would-be Christian apologists have unfortunately tried to do, Lewis defended his ideas through force of argument and tried to get people to examine and challenge their own philosophical presuppositions. The fundamentals of his philosophy are outlined in, "The Abolition of Man." The thesis of this book is that if we debunk and abolish traditional moral values and gain control over the conscience of man as science has enabled us to control other things in nature, it will result in the eventual Abolition of Man, the dehumanization of humanity. Abolish man's ...

Operation Abolition Part 1....1960 Film on The House of Un-American Activities Committee The first film by a private citizen which criticizes a US goverment committee, includes 1930s footage of House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC) Chairman Martin Dies (D) of Texas attacking "subversives" in labor unions; the Hollywood Witch Hunts; the Cold War blacklistings; & the 1960 San Francisco hearings where police turned fire hoses on student protestors inside the City Hall. The film contains an ***ysis of how the HUAC subpoened the newsfilms of the City Hall protests from TV stations KRON & KPIX & used federal facilities to edit them into "Operation Abolition," a falsified film attacking the HUAC'S critics; thousands of copies of which were then sold for private profit throughout the USA, including to the Armed Forces. Revelation of "Operation Abolitions" untruths led to the Pentagon banning it from all military bases. Among the HUAC's critics shown: Presidents Franklin D. Roosevelt & Harry S. Truman, civil rights leader Reverend Wyatt T. Walker, Congressmen James Roosevelt & Phillip Burton, & Frank Wilkinson, Director of the National Committee Against Repressive Legislation who, like the "Hollywood Ten," was imprisoned for insisting that the First Amendment gave him the right to refuse to answer questions about his political beliefs & associations. Freedom of Information Act files also reveal that the HUAC, in violation of the First Amendment, investigated Robert Carl Cohen for making this film. In 1977 COMMITTEE ON UNAMERICAN ACTIVITIES was Certified by ...

MCA Youth against abolition of PSD scholarships MCA Youth has urged the government to review its decision to phase out 1500 Public Service Department (PSD) overseas scholarships for undergraduate studies. Wee Ka Siong, who is also MCA education bureau chief and deputy education minister, said the government body overseeing the scholarships should evaluate the criteria instead. "They should not abolish the overseas scholarships. The issue here is the selection criteria. You need to beef it up and fine-tune it... people want to see more transparency in this so by all means, do it," he said in the Parliament lobby today. Full story here:
