His reactionary work, Essays inrepparttar 132226 Principles of Population, created an economics of scarcity and austerity that served to promote inequality in defense of a landed aristocracy.

Henry George, writing a century afterrepparttar 132233 dismal economist, understoodrepparttar 132234 ideological function that Malthusian economics served. He provided a most thorough critique of Malthus in Progress and Poverty. George's radical paradigm provided an economics of abundance and social justice.

Embracing Death through Celebrity Lives: Johnny Carson

Written by C. Bailey-Lloyd/LadyCamelot

Continued from page 1

Our individual mentality as human beings, will quite often deliberately confuse our rational with illogical ideas. In other words, our vision field can be easily distorted by what we would 'like' to believe. There's a quote that states, '...There are only two guarantees in life: Death and Taxes.' And logically, this is fact. So how do we embrace death without fear of absolute mortality?

We don't have to allow (our thinking about) death to get inrepparttar way of life. When we empower ourselves to face each day with a positive attitude, in a sense, we are overcoming death. By understanding that in everything, there is a time, and a season - just like green leaves on age-old oaks, we too, will find our season. It is, afterall, our spirit, or essence that is left behind. Our life andrepparttar 132225 sheer vitality that we emit is forever immortal.

While we struggle with daily routines, it is vital to one's wellbeing to findrepparttar 132226 time to reflect and to nurturerepparttar 132227 soul. Involving yourself in things that make your heart feel good, like volunteering at an animal shelter, lending a helping hand or visiting your local retirement center - these are just a few thoughts on nurturingrepparttar 132228 spirit. Because when we give of ourselves, we receive so much in return. And this is what allows us to become spiritually immortal.

Johnny Carson was not 'immortal,' persay, but he immortalized his essence. We didn't necessarily like him because he had white hair or because he had a good physique - we welcomed his humor, his charm, his laughter, his wit, his intelligence. It was our perception of his qualities that made him seemingly infinite. Thus, when we smile, or do nice deeds, we can quietly cherish these moments in lucid reflection. And when we live forrepparttar 132229 moment, our shells may not live forever, but our spirit - just like Mr. Carson - will be etched inrepparttar 132230 hearts and lives of many.
