It was only last year that sisters Kate and Laura decided to launch their own label Rodarte. They were determined to cut no corners using onlyrepparttar 148431 most expensive fabrics.

Materialism and Individuals

Written by Robert Bruce Baird

Perhaps I could make a lot of money by founding a Thinker’s Anonymous organization. It surely isrepparttar rage to eschew thinking.

Helping people achieve great things is worthwhile to your SELF.

If you do not know your SELF you will hurt those you try to make do what you want them to. This macho control mechanism built into materialistic society is exemplified by professionals and experts who are giving drugs to manage 'money-trees' (students and Ritalin, or old people and ECT especially) and managing bureaucracies or saying they are 'just' as they lead us to in-'just'-ice: 1. War 2. Religion and divisive ethnic ideologies - rather than ecumenical spiritual goals 3. Hate for others and putting women in a second class status 4. Insisting on education to make others BE like them 5. Pursuit of power rather than LOVE and creativity

It is summed up inrepparttar 148339 words ofrepparttar 148340 noted journal The Economist in their millennium issue - they call what we have 'an inhumane bureaucracy' as they enumeraterepparttar 148341 outcome ofrepparttar 148342 Napoleonic War's institution of 'standing armies'.

Wholism is spiritual & ass-'holes' are not.

Holism is not Wholism!

This is a response to a person who wantedrepparttar 148343 nuts and bolts of what I said in a detailed expose of Wholistic approaches that are in variance torepparttar 148344 way of many social programs and our overall bureaucracy. It is probably part ofrepparttar 148345 kind of thought thatrepparttar 148346 Beat Generation, Hippies, Cynics like Jesus and Goths or other drop-outs that ‘turn-on’ to new paradigms and alternatives, have been seeing sincerepparttar 148347 dawn of civilization.
