PE: The art of OrigamiWhat is Origami?PE: The art of Origami7 months ago in Personal More Like This
Origami (折り紙, from ori meaning "folding", and kami meaning "paper" (kami changes to gami due to rendaku) is the traditional Japanese art of paper folding, which started in the 17th century AD at the latest and was popularized outside of Japan in the mid-1900s. It has since then evolved into a modern art form. The goal of this art is to transform a flat sheet of paper into a finished sculpture through folding and sculpting techniques, and as such the use of cuts or glue are not considered to be origami. Paper cutting and gluing is usually considered kirigami.
History of origami
Have had the most extensive tradition, there is evidence of an independent tradition of paperfolding in China, as well as in Germany, Italy and Spain among other places. However, because of the problems associated with preserving origami, there is very little direc
An Ex-Communist on How to be a Good Communist1. Refrain from being overly dogmatic!An Ex-Communist on How to be a Good Communist1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I used to be very dogmatic. If someone's views conflicted with my "party line," I would usually instantly dismiss them even if their beliefs were perfectly logical. Being so dogmatic merely leads to hasty generalizations and even hastier decision making. At one point my dogmatism was so bad, I made a nasty journal entry on this group attacking my opponents. It was not only foolish and offensive, but it also led me to be demoted from my role as a commissar at the time. The reality is that nobody benefits from dogmatism. You may think you're upholding some sacred truth, or some complex science, but you're not. Instead, you're just alienating yourself and living as a bitter person unable to make critical judgement for themselves without relying on the holy scripture of philosophers who existed over two hundred years ago. Furthermore, no amount of "correctness" is worth inaction. If you're spending your time sitting around picking on people ove

Leaderless Revolution for the 21st CenturyA little while ago, I read a book called The Leaderless Revolution: How Ordinary People will Take Power and Change Politics in the 21st Century by Carne Ross, a former member of the British Foreign Office and delegate of the UK mission to the UN who left his job after seeing how so-called "representatives" represent themselves and the interests of their biggest supporters (such as multinational corporations) rather than the people of the society who elected them or who they were appointed to represent. Ross believes that this removal of agency from the people themselves to representatives, and the alienation it causes, is responsible for much of the conflict in the world. Therefore, he supports a leaderless consensus-based directly democratic government, i.e., anarchism. He gives precedents for this type of government in societies from pre-industrial tribes to the anarchist communes of Spain in the 1930s, the latter being the subject of George Orwell's panegyric HoLeaderless Revolution for the 21st Century2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Obama Is Supporting TerroristsIn early august it was discovered obama signed a secret order supporting the FSA. The Free Syrian Army is a terrorist group comprised of former Syrian armed forces, volunteers, and Muslim extremist. This group was started in part because Bashar Al-Assad was giving orders to fire on civilians during protests in Syria, which some members of the Syrian armed forces refused to do. This led to those refusing to fire on civilians to be shot, and a Syrian uprising was rendered from this Sectarian conflict. These protests are the result of the Arab Spring, an arab revolution movement, which has been trademarked with bloodshed, and the rise of many terrorists organizations.Obama Is Supporting Terrorists1 year ago in Personal More Like This
There really is no good guy in all of this.
The question you have got to ask is, why is the United States involved in this Sectarian conflict? What business do we have in these middle eastern countries? Bashar Al-Assad is of no threat to the United States, yet we are arming the Free Syrian Army, simil

On the Use of Directed Energy WeaponsDirected energy weapons have become a popular topic of discussion in recent years - people talk of their incredible scientific potential, ability to be absolutely devastating in war or useful tools against riots, and how they impact the ecosystem. But with advancements in directed energy weapons comes a chasm between science and layman's understanding, and average people are then expected to make decisions about whether or not this is something they want in their lives, when they have no understanding of what is actually at stake and what great research opportunities it could present. With directed energy weapons, there is an amazing scientific potential to rapidly cauterize injuries in combat or industrial environments, burn away inoperable tumors, demolish buildings more safely and effectively without producing toxic byproducts and sending droplets of molten steel into the air, even perform search and rescues in unfavorable environmental conditions. However, there is an equally increOn the Use of Directed Energy Weapons2 years ago in Personal More Like This

United States of Appartheid This is the federal State of the United States now, Bradley Manning is now a prisoner for life. Even though the superficial notion that he was aiding Al-Qaeda while leaking political documents online was exposed to be a false claim. Which in reality it was scent to Wikileaks, a free English online Wiki, but he was given the false claim of Stealing and Spying on the documents even though he was a government employee and if he had stolen the papers. Wouldn't the papers be out of Government property? Sounds more like electronic Publishing if you ask me.

9/11 and US imperialism Today in this year 2013 is the 12th anniversary of the September 11 attacks on the World Trade Center of New York City. Yes, a lot of innocent civilians where killed that symbolic historic day, but the events where use as a excuse by Washington to complete the Police State coup on our legal documents so that US political hegemony in the middle remains the same as it was as during the Cold War period. Even though the Islamic radical terrorist that bombed the World Trade Center where funded by our tax dollars in the 1980's to take the Soviets out of Afghanistan and a failed Persian coup to get Iran back into the hands of Foreign private interest, then we ditch the rebels when we bomb their land for more oil and after the looting is done. They attack American property and it European allies for revenge of our betrayal. Now that where funding the same rebels to take over the Syrian government, expect more terrorist bombings on countries with NATO memberships.

Defending Pedophilia...Alright, it's rant time! Today's target of my anger: People who defend pedophilia. I mean, seriously. What the fuck? What the actual fuck? How the fuck can you defend that? I just... holy shit. Defending people who have sex with children... That chills me to the very core just to even THINK about it. Now you're probably wondering, "How did this topic of rant come up?", well I'll tell you. I'm a militant supporter of LGBTQ rights and marriage, but I caught several pictures in a certain LGBTQ group that defended the acts of pedophiles and pedophilia. It brought up the argument that "Love is love, no matter what age." Okay... first of all, I'd like to point out that two people of the same sex that love each other doesn't hurt anyone, but two people of heavily different AGES?! Pedophilia DOES fucking hurt children, that's why it's referred to as child abuse! Imagine a 50-year-old man fucking a 5-year-old girl/boy. If that doesn't bother you, then you have some fucking problems.Defending Pedophilia...3 weeks ago in Personal More Like This

It's time for our next feature. The Poet Feature
Before we start, I have an announcment for all the beautiful Deviant Poets, all my dear friends and watchers, who are either poets or they enjoy poetry.
I have created a facebook page for the poets of DeviantArt. We will be sharing Poets profiles on this facebook page and their poetry, as links of course for their page. This way so many other poets on the page will have the chance to meet each other. This will help the unknown poets to have more support, more watchers, favs and feedback. The more membrs we have the more support the poet will get. It will be like a DD for the poet. If we have just 500 member, and we share a poet's profile, he will be seen by so many Deviants.
I hope you guys join our page. It's a big project and we need the support of every poet on DeviantArt. You will help us start

I wake up to this, and because this and similar news stories chip away at my optimism for the human race, I wonder how many halfway-decent people will defend this. This Kansas bill makes life hell for any couples who are not heterosexual and even for individuals who are not heterosexual.
To sum up the article:
- privately-owned businesses can fire gay employees and refuse to provide goods or services to gay persons or couples, if doing so would conflict with their sincerely-held religious beliefs.
- if the gay person or couple that has been discriminated against sues for discrimination, they will shoulder the burden of the opponent's legal team (in addition to not having a hope in hell of winning the case).

Despite the legitimate issues raised concerning abortion, I am sure that many of us remember the inane remarks that show up all the time in the dialogue. Remember U.S. Representative Tom Akin, trying to insist that women can't get pregnant through rape because the female body "has ways to shut that all down"? Remember Justin Bieber, saying that rape, and pregnancies from rape happens for a reason, or Senator Richard Mourdock echoing the sentiment? Remember the chief of India's top investigative agency advising women, "If you can't prevent rape, enjoy it"? Remember how Ireland's absurd laws concerning abortion
