The primary wish that I had as a result of watching that video was that there would be an article or book to provide the same information presented in the video. I have not done a lot of research but so far have found nothing like that. However, at least the video provides 'chapters' so one can skip to one of the ten myths rather that than rewatch or just scan by speading to find something to be re-watched.
So it has been said for years that far more journalists would be considered liberal than conservative – and also that most of the media on TV would be a least a bit left-leaning in it’s reporting and commentary. In the late 1990s, however, the emergence of Fox News intrigued me. Though I never watched Fox News much, I did become a bit curious about how conservative journalists might report about major national issues. Recently I encountered Ground News – and was surprised at how many reports appear in either left-oriented or right-oriented media.
A few days ago, a friend said he had become a libertarian and preferred small government – then asked me whether I favored big or small government.
That frustrated me – not because of my friend, but just how common this question is. The problem – for me – is simply that neither a big or small government is necessarily doing what is necessary and appropriate. Big and small don't necessarily imply specific services.
Thanks to my friend's question, I decided to see how political views like mine might be characterized – so I searched for political view tests on the web.
I first read this science fiction novel over five decades ago – perhaps while in junior high school. That period was, if I remember correctly, when my reading was very focused on science fiction, which, of course, this book was considered a classic even then. What I remembered from that book was the main character's departure from a hill above his town at midnight, then his encounter with the Other Men, as he called them ... and then the encounter with stars as having intelligence, followed by his return to the same time and place he had mentally departed.
On June 8, I did my initial post on James Nestor's best seller, Breath: The New Science of a Lost Art, while I was still reading the book. After I finished it on June 11, three days later, I started watching several YouTube videos of interviews with Nestor. While still reading the book, I had started various breathing exercises.
Though still reading James Nestor's New York Times best seller, Breath: The New Science of a Lost Art, I did my walk yesterday and today with the goal of walking fast enough to want to breathe more deeply – and yet to keep breathing from my nose, rather than my mouth.
