Less Harmful Nuclear Power

Nuclear power is said to be less harmful than coal. It does not pollute environment and release radiation into atmosphere like burning coal. If the cooling system of a nuclear power plant fails, it’s less harmful to let some steam out than risk overheating the reactor. It is less harmful to convince the public that everything is fine, because otherwise there could be a panic causing more harm than the minor radiation leak.

No Thanks To International Women’s Day

Yesterday was International Women’s Day. The day has been celebrated since 1909. Why didn’t we participate? For us the celebration is chauvinist. There should also be International Men’s day celebrated with equal intensity. Now the women’s day exists only to promote differences between men and women, not to make them more equal. Equality does not mean creating barriers, but uniting.
