great lectures on using science/scientific method with human action

i was fortunate enough to get digital copies of his early lectures dating back to the seventies as well as his newer material

there are some (entire seminar) from the late nineties still available on the website

and the first three lectures are free on youtube (see below)

a pdf explaining his latter work

highly recommended
Jay Stuart Snelson spent his life observing, researching, writing, and lecturing about freedom. Why have humans been unable to obtain and sustain a peaceful, prosperous existence? Why have we been stuck in a rut of war, poverty, and misery for millennia? Listening to the Human Action Principle lectures takes time. Learning physics takes time. In the end you are glad to gain new knowledge. These lectures are The Blueprint for building a peaceful and prosperous social structure worldwide. Take some time. Listen.

Just glancing, I think she was making the point that the original headline was casting a shaming light on Iran for stoning to death a women on Human Rights day, while we (a UN member, thus presumably a tacit support of this human rights thing) have executed several dozen of our own. I didn't see religion mentioned in either instance, you brought that along.

I did see race mentioned though, and gender. I waffle quite a bit on the death penalty as a punishment, but with the way our 'justice' system works I definitely have issues with executions. Until we can get a handle on at least a pretense of a fair and equal justice system, taking lives of offenders needs to be off the table.  Human rights - applies to all humans, regardless of race, creed, color, economic status, or any other differentiator.

 

I actually see capital punishment in the same light; it has never been a very big issue with me personally because I know that sentencing people to death is not really a deterrent at all unless a killer is released early for some reason and kills again but I imagine that does not happen often because usually the heinous offense is met with at least a life sentence or at least I hope so.   As far as the UN goes, not a big fan of them or most of the countries governments who constitute their membership with the US being one of the biggest hypocrites as you and Meow so correctly noted.  Nobody listens to them and quite frankly civilization is nowhere near evolved enough to implement justice and individual human rights to so many sovereign nations with their own agenda.  The results of trying are worse than if they didn't even exist imo.   In other words both Iran's theocracy and US hypocritical finger wagging whilst meddling and bombing its way through the Middle East and Africa can suck it.

I think that was the point Fox News was attempting to make with their provocative headline - that the UN is not relevant because there was a stoning in Iran, on Human Rights Day, and the UN could not prevent it.  It was their attempt at irony by connecting simultaneous-yet-unrelated events.  It's sort of like having a headline that reads  "Bearded Man Mails Package on Ted Kaczynski's 73rd Birthday".

i mean who can't appreciate a free forced sterilization?

California was sterilizing its female prisoners as late as 2010

California banned force sterilizations in 1979, but as recently as 2010, female inmates in the state were getting the procedure
