When things are investigated, knowledge is extended. When knowledge is extended, the will becomes sincere. When the will is sincere, the mind is correct. When the mind is correct, the self is cultivated. -- Confucius
Politically correct ideals are garbage: true wisdom comes from decades of deep thought and neutral observation. Only a so-called sociopath could ascertain wisdom from this crazy world in a neutral way. Cool thoughts- uncorrupted by modern politics, social norms, or societal ideals- are required for wisdom. Questioning everything, and going against the grain on all universally accepted norms is the path to true intelligence. The Gods notice this.

World Wildlife Fund Deceptively Named

It is sad how so many people judge books by their covers. People that think they are concerned about the environment and animals seem to be especially prone to this. Must be their bleeding-heart syndrome...

One of several groups with a misleading name is the WWF. The World Wildlife Fund, aka the World Wide Fund for Nature, has a name that leads people to believe it is about helping nature and wildlife. And, it has a cute panda logo! So it must be a good organization, most people assume. Besides, if you look through their main website (one of many sites they have), it is very extensive, pretty, colorful, and features animal and nature pics. It looks like it is all about helping endangered species and fighting environmental destruction. Pretty impressive, but what have other people uncovered by searching beyond their pretty site?

First let us ponder a weird question--
What do the following all have in common:
hunting- incl. trophy hunting and seal hunts, trapping incl. with steel jaw leghold traps, whaling, rainforest destruction, forced displacement of native tribes, vivisection (animal testing), chemicals for farming, and genetic crops?
Answer: they are all avidly supported and practiced by the WWF.

I know - you don't want to believe it because they have a panda logo. To get an idea of the breadth of their practices, check this Facebook page devoted to exposing them: Wicked Wildife Fund on FB. Then, read through this site made by PeTA2, and make sure you peruse all of their supporting documents so it really sinks in. By this time, you should be anxious to watch the video below. It mainly details the jungle destruction, native displacement, tiger harassment, and history. And of course their association with that wonderful company Monsanto.


WWF - Silence of the Pandas by pandasilence

Now every time you see one of those cute pandas on someone's car, you will cringe at their ignorance.

The Windsors (the British Royal family) are known both for big game hunting, incl. many large  tiger hunts in old India like pictured above, and for heading the WWF. Prince Charles recently took the reigns from Prince Philip.
