“I ask you to try something. If someone grieves you, or dishonors you, or takes something of yours, then pray like this: “Lord, we are all your creatures. Pity your servants, and turn them to repentance,” and then you will perceptibly bear grace in your soul. Induce your heart to love your enemies, and the Lord, seeing your good will, shall help you in all things, and will Himself show you experience. But whoever thinks evil of his enemies does not have love for God and has not known God.”

- St. Silouan the Athonite, Writings, IX.21

If you're a Trump supporter, just block me. It's unlikely you'll ever have anything interesting to say and I will not respect you as a person anyway so let's just save each other the trouble, yes?

I'm not sure how exactly to deal with people like this, because, like Point 7 says "If anyone tries to challenge the person’s intentions, or points out that the person did not have to sacrifice everything, the person will become very upset and angry. A normal response is to claim that the challenger is selfish, ungrateful, and has no idea what the person’s life has been life."

If anyone has suggestions, that would be awesome. I'll be looking into this more.

I think there are a broad spectrum of behavior patterns in both personal and professional relationships that might fall under these definitions. But most people feel unappreciated and think that they aren't getting as good as they give. And the one's who don't feel this way (at least from time to time) are probably the "love me or leave me" narcissist types.

As for dealing with martyrs, if someone is in an abusive personal relationship there is not much that can be done (that is, I know professionals have a hard time getting people out of those situations). I'd talk to a professional if you know someone like this.

At work the most important thing is communication, team-building exercises. The martyr needs to see what other people are accomplishing (and recognize concretely that they aren't the only one working hard) and also be recognized. You don't fix the person, you fix the dysfunctional team.

Cypherpunks envisioned Bitcoin in the eighties. In 1992, the internet became more accessible to the public. With this advancement, NSA activities kicked into full force, foreshadowing their present day activities. Using techniques to invade privacy and create a monopoly of mass data collection, the NSA’s secrets have been exposed by whistleblowers. Most notably, former NSA employee Edward Snowden has deeply exposed the NSA, forcing him to flee the US. Revelations brought to the table by Snowden have revealed that NSA spying has been immense, global, and continues to invade our private lives. Prior to that turning point in 1992, a group of young software developers and visionaries stepped into the spotlight to battle against this kind of invasion, creating educational papers and protocols to fight these attacks.


“PRIVACY IS NECESSARY FOR AN OPEN SOCIETY IN THE ELECTRONIC AGE. PRIVACY IS NOT SECRECY. A PRIVATE MATTER IS SOMETHING ONE DOESN’T WANT THE WHOLE WORLD TO KNOW, BUT A SECRET MATTER IS SOMETHING ONE DOESN’T WANT ANYBODY TO KNOW. PRIVACY IS THE POWER TO SELECTIVELY REVEAL ONESELF TO THE WORLD.”— ERIC HUGHES

You Can Be a Political Conservative or a Principled Conservative, but Not Both
Conservatism is
generally about preserving heritage. That's a good thing, I just
don't think the state should do that. Conservatives say
things like if we put government in charge of maintaining a dessert
we'll have a shortage of sand in no time. Likewise i...

Myths About the Iran Nuke Deal

 ‣ Myth 1: Eliminating all of Iran’s nuclear assets was
a goal

The most visible and vocal advocate of complete
elimination of Iran’s nuclear program is Israeli
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, but others
have joined him. The fact that UN Security
Council resolutions since 2006 have called upon
Iran to suspend specific nuclear activities –
uranium enrichment, heavy water production,
construction of the heavy water reactor, and any
reprocessing-related activities – may have led to
expectations that suspension would eventually
equal termination. In part, earlier insistence that
Iran comply with those UNSC resolutions
requiring suspension (which Iran did for a few
years from 2003) as a prerequisite for talks may
also have created a perception that Western
negotiators “caved” on their demands. However,
there is little public evidence that a “zero option”
for Iran’s nuclear program was ever a goal for a
comprehensive solution. On the other hand, it
was certainly the intention of the UN Security
Council in its resolutions to halt Iranian activities
that were deemed sensitive, at least temporarily

 ‣ Myth 2: Eliminating all of Iran’s nuclear assets
would be beneficial*

One of the basic premises of the nonproliferation
regime is that it is possible to have peaceful
nuclear energy and to be confident that you can
detect (if not prevent) its diversion to military
uses. Another of the basic premises of nonproliferation is that nothing can stop a
determined proliferator, but a panoply of
measures can slow, complicate, and make
expensive and painful a clandestine acquisition of
nuclear weapons. Fundamentally,
nonproliferation is about buying time to find
other solutions. If one accepts those basic
premises, then complete elimination of Iran’s
nuclear program is the wrong approach. Trying
to eliminate (either through negotiation or
militarily) Iran’s nuclear assets would be
impossible if Iran does not cooperate and
unnecessary if it does. In other words, if Iran has
bad intentions, it will be impossible to eliminate
all capabilities and if it has good intentions, it
would be unnecessary. To suggest otherwise is to
aver that nuclear energy can have no peaceful
uses. Of course, an alternative approach is to
restrict nuclear energy to “responsible,”
trustworthy states, with predictably bad results. 

 ‣ Myth 3: Anytime, anywhere inspections are
possible

Expectations about inspector access have also
been unreasonably high...

 ‣ Myth 4: Anytime, anywhere inspections are
necessary

No pain does not equal no gain.
