Are the Natural Resources of the Earth Limited?

Every now and then we can hear hysterical voices, threatening that the humankind will exhaust all the natural resources of our Earth in 10, 20, 100 years (the exact figure varies according to the level of anxiety of every particular doomsayer). But how much credit should we pay to such predictions?

The history itself suggests that all the predictions of the end of the world in any of its senses have been false. No matter whether it is atypical pneumonia, the Large Hadron Collider launch or the exhaustion of fossil fuels, there is, in fact, nothing any single human being can do about them but panicking. Even if we believe that the natural resources will come to an end, how this knowledge may help us?

Robert Heinlein, Moon is a Harsh Mistress

Moon is a Harsh Mistress is rightfully considered to be one of the classical examples of science fiction libertarian prose; even to an extent of being awarded a corresponding award and lending a motto TANSTAAFL (There Ain’t No Such Thing As A Free Lunch) to the Libertarian Party of the USA.

Neil Gaiman, Terry Pratchett, Good Omens

The movie Omen or at least one of its numerous sequels is known, at least as hearsay, to everyone. A little boy who is the son of Satan is born into a family of a powerful American ambassador which leads to all kinds of supernatural happenings with generally bad ending. Two well-known authors, Pratchett and Gaiman, ask a question: what would happen if such a son of Satan would by accident be born into a very-very ordinary English family? Good Omens is their brilliant answer to this question.

Critical Essay on Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency by Douglas Adams

Douglas Adams is best known for his cycle The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy in five books; the rest of his works are much less famous, and for no good reason. Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency first introduces Dirk Gently – a shabby-looking detective working according to the principle of interconnectedness of all things in the world. While Sherlock Holmes used to say that when the impossible is ruled out, what is left, however unlikely, is the actual truth. Dirk Gently, however, refuses to rule out the impossible, and usually turns out to be correct in his assumptions.

Law Enforcement Cameras – Necessity or Dystopian Nightmare?

Today we can hear more and more often that the methods of law enforcement should move on together with time and apply new technologies in everyday use. One of the most obvious examples of such methods is placement of cameras in the streets, in public buildings, in apartment houses and so on, so that the police could easily locate and control all kinds of criminal activity without the necessity of any police officers being present on spot.

Is Animal Testing Immoral?

We live in the age when people are very concerned with morality and ethics in relations between people, between people and nature, and between people and animals. Some people refuse to eat meat or drink milk because it means cruelty and exploitation of animals; some people demand all the livestock to be immediately set free because of the same reasons; however, while demands and ideas of this kind are heard rather often and are said aloud, the idea of animal testing seems to somehow evade the public consciousness. Every day we hear on TV about new medicine being tested on mice and guinea pigs, and tend to accept it quite nonchalantly. But why?

Do People Become Slaves of Their Computers?

Today more often than in any other epoch we can hear exclamations like “Science is evil!”, “We should return to nature!”, “We are too dependent on machines and computers in particular!” Yet, however, these statements are by no means new. Luddites of various kinds existed in all times, and I can clearly imagine a picture of a hairy, club-swinging caveman orator persuading his awe-stricken fellow tribesmen that they all have grown too dependent on fire and are forgetting the natural way of eating their meat raw.

Can Stricter Gun Control Be Effective in Saving Lives?

People stating that strict gun control may lead to saving millions of lives seem to be under the false assumption that most deaths in the country are caused by deranged teenagers who start shooting in their schools or overly nervous people legally owning firearms and incapable of controlling themselves. They state that if the laws controlling owning guns become stricter, if firearms become harder to come by, these factors will cause reduction of deaths caused by these weapons.

How Can We Succeed in Conservation of Natural Resources?

Every day people work on the ways to make their life easier and more pleasant. They try to invent some new ways of entertainment, work on the ways to make some routine activities less time-consuming to dedicate their time to more important activities. Thus, thousands of different devices are produced, lots of automobiles are used and many other events are happening daily in the world.
