Can ‘robots’ acquire human rights?

This issue is explored extensively in certain Sci-Fi movies – and immediately many will have clicked on some other link, ruled by System 1 thinking. Those blessed with an innate or acquired portion of System 2 thinking may stay on a bit longer. Sci-Fi is only a stage upon whichRead More

Extraordinary confession.

Sometimes for  brief moments I think there may be hope for humanity. This is one of them.

Justice and rivers

Well, I can just imagine how some will know that this is about Jamaica, my longing to be there and me finding my roots etc. I’m just shaking my head. I give up. I’ve gotta get back to Zog! A man cannot appreciate different kinds of music without people jumpingRead More

The truth at what cost?

Look through some of this video. You need not see all of it. Many will hide from it,  because this not about killings seen in movies. This is real life. What if you were the civilians on the ground? Could you be a helicopter pilot and do that sort ofRead More

Shamelessness – a new world order

Mr. Taylor, who was indicted while he was still President of Liberia, is the first former Head of State to be convicted by an internationalRead More

The Unthinkable

My thoughts which follow have been deeply and uncomfortably compelled by the movie ‘Unthinkable’. This movie comes with a health warning – as it shows graphic scenes of torture. If you are likely to suffer stress or ill-health do not watch this movie. Adult audiences only. I’m not here toRead More

‘We can’t live here anymore’

This is the headline about a father’s sentiment about his two young children who luckily escaped with their lives, after being bound and gagged, while mother nipped out to get some baby food a few minutes away. For viewers outside of this godforesaken Rock, I should explain that this crimeRead More
