Carl Jung on Sigmund Freud’s Sexual Theories

People sometimes mention during discussions, the fact that Carl Jung had issues with Sigmund Freud’s sexual theories, implying that Freud’s theories are somehow not valid, or at the very least, that we should not put too much weight on them. So in this post I want to briefly take a look at this.

Why courtship and dating are a waste of time

With the exception of a few societies in European countries such as Iceland, there’s this notion in societies around the world that people have to go through an elaborate game of courtship before they can be together more intimately. As I have previously discussed in my article series on Understanding Women, this isn’t something that’s natural; it was enforced on humankind … Continue reading

Why I never want to get rich

I never want to get rich. In fact, I think that if you’re rich you should be ashamed of yourself. And not only should you be ashamed of yourself, but you should also be very worried about the kind of person you’ve likely become. When I mention to people that I never want to get rich, I always get a … Continue reading

Nick Hanauer: You’re missing the point on inequality

Billionaire Nick Hanauer published an article recently on Politico warning his fellow “filthy rich Americans” that “the pitchforks are coming.” In his article, Hanauer discussed the inequality in America that’s getting worse every day: At the same time that people like you and me are thriving beyond the dreams of any plutocrats in history, the rest of the country—the 99.99 … Continue reading

On Human Nature and Morality: Humans are Intrinsically Good

Something that comes up often in discussions is the question of whether human beings are naturally evil creatures that need to be held in check with laws, either from the state and/or from a god, or whether they are intrinsically good. Those who believe that humans are intrinsically bad, claim that without any laws that tell people how to live … Continue reading

I was right about women all along

Not that I ever doubted myself, but I am now more confident than ever that my theories about women’s irrational behavior are spot on, and that I really solved the problem of why women are difficult to understand. When I wrote the first part of my Understanding Women series back in 2011, I knew I had solved an  important puzzle. … Continue reading

Yahweh the Barbarian

Like many people living today you probably grew up being taught that the god of the bible was a benevolent all loving god. You basically heard the same story almost everywhere around you; from your parents, your family, your friends, at school, in church, through various media — basically everywhere you went. And if you didn’t go anywhere, people would show … Continue reading

Everything in Life is about Sex

I recently saw an episode of House of Cards where Francis Underwood, the lead character played by Kevin Spacey, mentions that “a great man once said: everything is about sex, except sex; sex is about power.” I thought that was an interesting quote and wondered who that great man was. After some investigation (I Googled), I found out that it’s … Continue reading

Thank You, Dr. Wilhelm Reich

Dear Dr. Reich, I found out about you and your work recently in December 2013 and have been absolutely fascinated by the research you’ve done on the subject of human sexuality. It quickly became clear to me why you were regarded as one of Dr. Freud’s most promising students. I’m truly disappointed by the fact that I didn’t come across … Continue reading

Year in Review 2013 by Bill Gates

I saw over on Business Insider that Bill Gates blogged about things that he thinks made the world better in 2013. I wanted to comment on his blog post and point out what I think many may not realize. Gates pretends to be doing good around the world, and perhaps some of what he’s doing may be beneficial to some … Continue reading
