Can the nomadic lifestyle resist neoliberal consumer values, or merely extend them?
Do you think that the nomad is an occidental myth invented by Romantic philosophers?
I think we have to be a bit careful because people mean different things when they use the word “nomad”. It’s come to mean something like “rootless wanderer”, with connotations of freedom and rebellion and living outside society.
But to an anthropologist, or a historian, nomadism describes a particular way of life: the way of life of people who have no settled home. Historically, nomads moved around to follow migrating animals, or because they lived in areas where the soil was too poor to support settled agriculture.
In northern Siberia, for instance, the Even people were nomads right into the 20th century. They followed herds of migrating reindeer which provided them with their food supply…

Who should the Greek people listen to when they vote in a referendum on their country’s international bailout: international leaders, or New York Times columnist Paul Krugman?
Here’s what is at stake: Greece’s Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras has announced a July 5 referendum on the nation’s creditors’ proposals to resolve its debt crisis, which has plagued the country for several years now. A “yes” vote would back the bailout measures by international creditors, while a “no” vote would likely lead Greece to exit the eurozone, making it the first nation to ditch the single currency and throwing the European nation into uncharted territory.
Noble Prize-winning Krugman says he would vote “no,” arguing two reasons for that case. Within the first point, Krugman acknowledges that leaving the euro is scary, but could result in an opportunity for the nation to rethink how it can tackle its woes and that a devaluation…

Greece has never been this close to default and markets are panicking. But what exactly is the country’s fate? Here’s a look at how the scenarios could play out and what it means for the world
Following a breakdown of talks between Athens and its creditors, Juncker delivered a withering criticism of the Greek government which called the referendum and which advised Greeks to vote against creditor proposals.
He said he feels “betrayed” by the “egotism” shown by Greece in failed debt talks.
“The whole planet would consider a Greek ‘no’ to the question posed… as meaning that Greece…

Spirit of Sodomy – Judgment Day is Coming…
For those who fear an immediate retaliation from Jesus you will not see it. For those who are waiting for flood waters to sink the United States for allowing Satan to win a victory over God’s law through redefining marriage is not going to happen. You will not see the countries foundations split and a 20.2 earthquake. Am I saying that destruction is not coming? No. It will not be as soon as you think. Why?
Because the sentence against an evil deed is not executed quickly, therefore the hearts of the sons of men among them are given fully to do evil. Although a sinner does evil a hundred times and may lengthen his life, still I know that it will be well for those who fear God, who fear Him openly. But…
