India wants to maintain wealth gap?

After reading this article I got the sneaking suspicion that some major players in India did some cool calculations indicating that it was more profitable for them to keep things the way they are.

While a student in India, it seemed that some of the so-called elite didn’t give a hoot about the poverty around them. There were noble exceptions from some truly exceptional people, but many take the Hindu religion to say that poverty is mostly due to karma. The poor did something bad in a past life so “deserve” their fate. At least, that is the explanation I often got from those apathetic about social justice.

The country is, for the most part, in dire need of development and it’s choices like this that will probably keep it that way.

Historical Notes About Out-of-Body Experiences: III. Hector Durville

This story comes from one of the better blogs about parapsychology. Instead of simply accepting the claims of parapsychology, Dr. Alvarado tries to apply a critical, scientific method. Whether or not this approach is always suitable for the subtle dynamics of parapsychology is another issue. What matters is that we use the mind and lived experience to analyze parapsychological truth claims and not fall into sheer hucksterism. So even if we can’t always be “scientific” as currently understood, we still can approach parapsychology with a scientific attitude.
