Corriere della Sera - Usi e abusi del multiculturalismo/4: "IV

L'argomento centrale fu espresso con grande chiarezza molto tempo fa, alla fine del 1500, da Akbar, l’imperatore indiano, nelle sue osservazioni su fede e ragione. Akbar, il gran moghul, nacque musulmano e morì musulmano, ma sostenne sempre che la fede non può avere la precedenza sulla ragione, dato che la religione che si eredita va riconosciuta – e, se necessario, rifiutata – attraverso la ragione. Attaccato dai tradizionalisti che erano a favore della fede istintiva, Akbar disse agli amici e al fidato luogotenente Abul Fazl, un formidabile studioso con grande competenza su diverse religioni, “La ricerca della ragione e il rifiuto del tradizionalismo sono così evidenti da non dover richiedere di essere discusse. Se il tradizionalismo fosse giusto, i profeti avrebbero semplicemente seguito i loro padri (e non sarebbero stati portatori di nuovi messaggi)”. Secondo Akbar la ragione doveva avere la supremazia, in quanto la si doveva usare anche confutarne l'uso."

The Tripwire: "'Laws that forbid the carrying of arms ... disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes ... Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man.' -- Thomas Jefferson (1764) -- Quoting 18th Century criminologist Cesare Beccaria in On Crimes and Punishment"

: "No where in the world and under no law self defense is considered to be a crime, but in the tyrannical mullacracy of Iran if a woman does not resist rape she will be stoned as adulterer and if she does she will be hanged. "

Where science meets spirituality - the Futures Foundation: "Where science meets spirituality

The search for the wholeness of life, of mind and of nature is spreading and deepening from year to year, according to Professor Ervin Laszlo, president of the Club of Budapest and a keynote speaker at the Global Mind, Global Soul, Global Action conference in Taiwan. And it's just as well, he says, if we want human civilization to survive.

'Wholeness is a defining characteristic of the kind of planetary civilization that could overcome problems created by the mechanistic, manipulative rationality of the civilization that is still dominant today,' he told an international audience of futurists and students.

This conclusion followed the professor's challenging exploration of the frontiers of theoretical physics, including our growing understanding of the nature of consciousness. And it was nested in his recognition of inevitable change."
