The genius of the beast : a radical re-vision of capitalism by Howard K Bloom( Book )

8 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in English and French and held by 724 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Is global capitalism on its last legs? Is the era of America leadership over? Has the West begun a decline into a new Dark Age? Does American civilization deserve to survive? These are the unnerving questions raised by the Great Crash of 2009." "Howard Bloom has a radically new answer. In The Genius of the Beast, the author of the acclaimed books The Lucifer Principle and Global Brain insists that Western civilization has only begun to realize its full potential. Bloom argues that there's a hidden mandate beneath the surface of capitalism: "It's struggling to whisper and rumble its message to you and me. That hidden imperative can lift us from economic crisis, can make us a leader in the next-generation economy, and can dramatically upgrade our ability to empower our fellow human beings. "Bloom sees crisis as opportunity, opportunity for the whole human race." "The Genius of the Beast takes the reader on a sweeping tour of human history, from the Stone Age to the present. Every chapter conveys a radically new way to see the astonishing mechanism we call Western civilization. Bloom marvels at how humans have turned toxic waste into food and fuel, trash into treasure, and garbage into gold. He shows how we've produced material miracles based on immaterial things - passion, persistence, and fantasy. Bloom shows that what many regard as the end is just the beginning."--Jacket
The global brain : the evolution of mass mind from the big bang to the 21st century by Howard K Bloom( Book )

11 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 662 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this extraordinary follow-up to the critically acclaimed The Lucifer Principle, Howard Bloom--one of today's preeminent thinkers offers us a bold rewrite of the evolutionary saga. As someone who has spent forty years in psychology with a long-standing interest in evolution, I'll just assimilate Howard Bloom's accomplishment and my amazement. David Smillie, Visiting Professor of Zoology, Duke University. He shows how plants and animals (including humans) have evolved together as components of a worldwide learning machine. He describes the network of life on Earth as one that is, in fact, a complex adaptive system, a global brain in which each of us plays a sometimes conscious, sometimes unknowing role, and he reveals that the World Wide Web is just the latest step in the development of this brain. These are theories as important as they are radical. Informed by twenty years of interdisciplinary research, Bloom takes us on a spellbinding journey back to the big bang to let us see how its fires forged primordial sociality. As he brings us back via surprising routes, we see how our earliest bacterial ancestors built multitrillion-member research and development teams a full 3.5 billion years ago. We watch him unravel the previously unrecognized strands of interconnectedness woven by crowds of trilobites, hunting packs of dinosaurs, feathered flying lizards gathered in flocks, troops of baboons making communal decisions, and adventurous tribes of protohumans spreading across continents but still linked by primitive forms of information networking. We soon find ourselves reconsidering our place in the world. Along the way, Bloom offers us exhilarating insights into the strange tricks of body and mind that have organized a variety of life forms: spiny lobsters, which, during the Paleozoic age, participated in communal marching rituals; and bees, which, during the age of dinosaurs, conducted collective brainwork. This fascinating tour continues on to the sometime brutal subculture wars that have spurred the growth of human civilization since the Stone Age. Bloom shows us how culture shapes our infant brains, immersing us in a matrix of truth and mass delusion that we think of as reality. Global Brain is more than just a brilliantly original contribution to the ongoing debate on the inner workings of evolution. It is a grand vision, says the eminent evolutionary biologist David Sloan Wilson, a work that transforms our very view of who we are and why

The lucifer principle by Howard K Bloom( Recording )

5 editions published between 2003 and 2015 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Lucifer Priciple is a revolutionary work that explores the intricate relationships among genetics, human behavior, and culture to put forth the thesis that "evil" is a by-product of nature's strategies for creation and that it is woven into our most basic biological fabric. Though this argument is not a new one--it has been brought forth by such great historical figures as St. Paul, Thomas Hobbes, and Raymond Dart--Howard Bloom here takes fresh data from a variety of sources and shapes it into a lens through which listeners can reinterpret the human experience

You are being lied to : the disinformation guide to media distortion, historical whitewashes and cultural myths by Russell Kick( Book )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Do you believe any of the following? Alcoholics Anonymous is effective. Hackers pose a grave threat to the nation. There's a hidden code in the Bible. Thousands of species have become extinct because of deforestation. Licking certain toads will get you high. Most terrorists are Middle Eastern. Wake up! You Are Being Lied To. This book acts as a battering ram against the distortions, myths and outright lies that have been shoved down our throats by the government, the media, corporations, organized religion, the scientific establishment and others who want to keep the truth from us. An unprecedented group of researchers -- investigative reporters, political dissidents, academics, media watchdogs, scientist-philosophers, social critics and rogue scholars -- paints a picture of a world where crucial stories are ignored or actively suppressed and the official version of events has more holes in it than Swiss cheese. A world where read dangers are downplayed and nonexistent dangers are trumpeted. In short, a world where you are being lied to

Gauging the intensity of traditional and intermediate punishments : developing the criminal penalty severity scale by Martha F Schiff( Book )

1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

While these scores have no absolute value, they are intended to stress the relative degree of restrictiveness inherent in most criminal punishments. This work aims to demonstrate that, (1) nonincarcerative sanctions should serve not simply as "alternatives" to incarceration, but rather as primary punitive sanctions which hold offenders accountable as well as offer other essential services, (2) that understanding the punitive impact of any penalty is important, irrespective of sentencing rationale, and (3) a penalty severity scale is a vital component of any comprehensive sentencing framework

The open-source everything manifesto : transparency, truth, and trust by Robert David Steele( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What the world lacks right now'especially the United States, where every form of organization from government to banks to labor unions has betrayed the public trust'is integrity. Also lacking is public intelligence in the sense of decision-support: knowing what one needs to know in order to make honest decisions for the good of all, rather than corrupt decisions for the good of the few. The Open-Source Everything Manifesto is a distillation of author, strategist, analyst, and reformer Robert David Steele life's work: the transition from top-down secret command and control to a world of bottom-up, consensual, collective decision-making as a means to solve the major crises facing our world today. The book is intended to be a catalyst for citizen dialog and deliberation, and for inspiring the continued evolution of a nation in which all citizens realize our shared aspiration of direct democracy'informed participatory democracy. Open-Source Everything is a cultural and philosophical concept that is essential to creating a prosperous world at peace, a world that works for one hundred percent of humanity. The future of intelligence is not secret, not federal, and not expensive. It is about transparency, truth, and trust among our local to global collective. Only "open" is scalable. As we strive to recover from the closed world corruption and secrecy that has enabled massive fraud within governments, banks, corporations, and even non-profits and universities, this timely book is a manifesto for liberation'not just open technology, but open everything
