“Some social philosophers (Bauman, Sloterdijk) focus attention to the fact that in modern society the continuous state of change has its toll.

This week marks the 50th anniversary of U.S. President John F. Kennedy’s assasination on Novemebr 22, 1963. It was undoubtedly the darkest day for our nation and its National Security.

Happy New Year!

It’s been a hell of a journey. “Ob La Di, Ob Li Da”.
