The Call’s Gnuz & Lynx Roundup | #Paris #Beirut #Baghdad

G’day. This last weekend was the time of the awful terror attacks in Paris, Beirut, and in Baghdad, resulting in scores dead and hundreds injured. ISIL, also referred to as Daesh, has taken credit for the attacks and this travesty on a monumental scale. To paraphrase twitterer @LEDFlashing, it shows how those who can’t succeed on the merits of their ideas need terror as their messenger. This is a recipe for failure in the free market of ideas, and they who so fail shall be left behind by those of us who’ve grown up and moved forward. Here’s an animated clip of Carl Sagan’s monologue from his book, Pale Blue Dot, which notes the futility and instability of unthinking brutality and rule by fear on such a tiny world as ours, a world barely a fraction of a dot.
