...I grew up on my family’s small farm and helped my parents in their everyday work. I stayed on the farm without going school. I did not go far away from home; I stayed to help my parents. When I turned seven, my parents told me that I needed to go to school, which was 20 km away from our home, in a small town. I was excited, and I could not wait to go to school. On September 1st of 1991, by 7 AM, I was ready to leave my home. Mum and I rode on horseback and started our...

Bare Liberty

By: Matt R. Erickson

As these proud and once-prosperous United States of America continue in tragic decline, Mark Evanston leaps back into action in the third and final installment of the Bald Justice series, Bare Liberty. Working with his colleagues at the Patriot Corps, Mark continues on with his Patriot Quest to eliminate government tyranny, once and for all. Mark routs out evil where it lurks most prevalently, within our monetary system which was cleverly separated from the gold and si...

“I have to admit, my first killing shocked me,” Terry admitted. “Not because it was so hard, but actually because it was so easy and even more so because it was thrilling. Total dominion over someone else is very intoxicating, so much better than alcohol, drugs, or even sex. Actually, it was even better killing someone who had willingly just given me great sex only hours earlier, who now welcomed me back, only for me to then kill her.” “Your first killing?” Mark was ...

Base Tyranny

By: Matt R. Erickson

Base Tyranny is the second book in a fiction series (following Bald Justice), looking at our monetary history of gold and silver coin, transitioning into legal tender paper currencies.

Gordon Radcliff’s plan was ironically rooted in America’s extensive seacoast defense system. On March 17, 1861, two weeks after the necessary two-thirds of Congress had sent the proposed 13th Amendment to the States for ratification and a week after the Confederate States of America approved emitting bills of credit directly, Gordon Radcliff attended a family reunion and dinner. Originally Gordon had planned to skip the reunion, so he could continue to concentrate ...

The Dalian Panoptic

By: Valentino

I faced the painting. I stared at it. There was the great eye and I concentrated on it. The eye, the great eye, the eye of the abstraction, the enigma, “what nonsense!”. And then, to my amazement, it happened: the great eye abstracted me, and the universe that we know now, seemed finite to me. The ethereal at the disposition of one unique imperative will, mine. From my hands emerged, at my whim, entire worlds, forms, beings, things, space, time and destinations, that my ...

Coleridge's Early Empiricism

By: Jeffrey Side

This study examines the influence of empiricism on Samuel Taylor Coleridge’s poetry up until 1800, at which time he deserted it for transcendentalism. This is not to suggest that he was completely an empiricist before 1800, but that his empiricism was somewhat tempered by transcendentalist influences. Therefore, the relationship between “empiricism” and “transcendentalism” in his thinking with regard to poetic composition is problematical. Coleridge became a...

Анета

By: Mrs. Mrs. Marlena Stoyanova Yurukova; Marlena Stoyanova Yurukova, Illustrator

Ten short stories about contemporary subjects like emmigration, abandoned villages, unemployment, lost of traditional values, poverty.

Вечна и бляскава „Животът стоеше пред мен като вечна пролет в нови и бляскави дрехи.“ К.Г.Гаус Планината – тя беше вечна и бляскава. Стоеше пред нас цяла Чернатица. Пролетта я правеше да блести още повече и я връщаше отново към вечността. Така и животът ни пое по частица и от двете. Много частици сигурно бе поело и селцето в ниското през столетията. И сега къщите му блестяха в чисто бяло. Пролетта сякаш и тях бе подновила. Затова забързахме надолу, по-скоро да сти...

Shodasi : Secrets of the Ramayana

By: Seshendra Sharma

* * * Valmiki Ramayana – Greatest Medicine for Mankind The story of Ramayana is prescribed as textbook for students. Sita and Rama are worshiped as prime couple. No need to mention about reciting it. Whether Valmiki was satisfied with simple narration of the story? Seshendra Sharma denies it. He analyzed it mentioning that to understand the inner meanings of Valmiki Ramayana, the scientific knowledge is essential. The underlying secret of the sage’s mind will...

Sri Sundara Kanda is nothing but Kundalini yoga Many great secrets that are most venerable are given in Srimad Ramayana. Therefore, it became a sacred text which is daily read as a ritual. It would not have been elevated to such level if it were only a narration of a story. We do not read Manu Charitra* daily as a ritual. We do not consider that book as a means of achieving salvation. That is the difference between these two books. The great secrets in Ramayana a...

El Retorno a la Vida : Unos poemas malos de amor, tres fabulas ace...

By: Valentino

En «no entiende ce´l joven», la contracción «ce´l» se origina de«ce el» ( ce, conjunción completiva; el, artículo determinante). Y en «la´descubierto» esta procede de «la ha descubierto» ( la , artículo determi-nante; ha , verbo auxiliar del verbo principal conjugado en participio descubrir = ha descubierto ), que escrito en grafía moderna sería «la adescubierto». Entonces lo que vemos aquí es la contracción del verboauxiliar «a» (ha) en la figura del apóstr...

Driving through the low plains which led out of Denver, Colorado I noticed a certain change in the scenery. It was obvious that the snow here would fall and melt almost instantly or remain in slush like state, while the city blanketed by it would remain white until the winter spell broke. It was the New Year week of 2014, and the entire state was celebrating the legalization of Marijuana for recreational purposes. There had been a special New Years celebration put on by ...

Endowed with the personality that always remains inclined towards the truest secularism, I cannot afford to prefer one religion over the other. Therefore, it is not a difficult task for me to interact with a person of any faith. I cannot skip from my tract of `humanity before religion`. Being a firm believer in the existence of a `Supreme Power`, denoted by a variety of nomenclatures, I can adjust with followers of any mainstream of faiths. Even an atheist or an agnost...
