  • 3). Choice Theory  By : Kim Olver
    You have listened to me for a year now talking about Choice Theory but I know I’ve never really explained what Choice Theory is.

  • 4). The Importance of Stories  By : Historian
    Long before the advent of a written history, the elders of ancient civilisations used stories to teach the new generation. The lessons might have related to the values of the society, their particular version of how they came to be, their purpose on the earth, or methods of obtaining food or a spouse. The most well known of the ancient stories were the civilisation’s particular version of how Earth came into existence and how they came to be here on earth.

  • 14). The Roman Family  By : Sam Vaknin
    The father in the Roman family (paterfamilias) exercised absolute and lifelong power over all other family members (patria potestas): his wife, children, and slaves. If the father's father was alive - then he was the supreme authority in the household. Fathers were even allowed to execute their grown sons for serious offenses like treason. Each house maintained a cult of ancestors and hearth gods and the paterfamilias was its priest.

  • 18). NGOs - The Self-Appointed Altruists  By : Sam Vaknin
    Their arrival portends rising local prices and a culture shock. Many of them live in plush apartments, or five star hotels, drive SUV's, sport $3000 laptops and PDA's. They earn a two figure multiple of the local average wage. They are busybodies, preachers, critics, do-gooders, and professional altruists. Always self-appointed, they answer to no constituency.
