The disappearing male


Stan Eales - Best Before: The Industrial Revolution

Stop the world, I want to get off. This is a disturbing CBC documentary entitled The Disappearing Male. It is a 44 minute video about a critically important, yet seldom covered, issue facing the human species:  the toxic threat to the male reproductive system by endocrine-disrupting chemicals.

“We are conducting a vast toxicological experiment”, Dr. Herbert Needleman has declared ominously, “in which our children and our children’s children are the experimental subjects.”

After viewing, be sure to watch a couple of Star Trek episodes or read some science fiction that embodies more positive visions of our future.

    Unfortunately, I’m stuck on an old funky box while visiting friends, and it can’t handle the media. Lot’s to catch up on when I get back home, but this… I hate to say it… might not be all bad.

    The way things are going, we could use less, or no, more of us.

    Google video really is the worst. Never seen such a jumpy film anywhere else for years and the buffering is also worthless.

Timely Reminders

"Those who crusade, not for God in themselves, but against the devil in others, never succeed in making the world better, but leave it either as it was, or sometimes perceptibly worse than what it was, before the crusade began. By thinking primarily of evil we tend, however excellent our intentions, to create occasions for evil to manifest itself."
-- Aldous Huxley

"The only war that matters is the war against the imagination. All others are subsumed by it."
-- Diane DiPrima, "Rant", from Pieces of a Song.

"It is difficult
to get the news from poems
yet men die miserably every day
for lack
of what is found there"
-- William Carlos Williams, "Asphodel, That Greeny Flower"
