‘It is sometimes argued that economics cannot be a science because it studies human behaviour and human behaviour cannot be reduced to scientific laws’. There is an element of truth in this. It is very difficult to understand and predict the behaviour of individuals. However, nearly all economics is based on the study of the behaviour of a group of individuals- the behaviour of groups is often far more predictable than that of individuals. Moreover, we tend to judge a science on its ability to establish laws which are certain and unequivocal. But even in a hard science such as physics, it has become apparent that some laws can only be stated in terms of probabilities.
Anthropology is the study of human beings and their ancestors through time in terms of physical characteristics, environmental and social relations, and culture. On the other hand, sociology is the study of human society at a given period in time. … More U.S. universities offer programs in sociology than anthropology.
Why do we waste our lives in a slave trade capitalistic system? The nauseating, soul-destroying 9-5; the cramped office blocks that resemble an ant’s nest; the instilled hierarchy of the social classes where privilege and poverty are passed through blood heritage.
Oh, the chronic anguish of consciousness. The claustrophobia emitted with every scattered breath.

I love that sweet smell of decay that surrounds me in forests and woods. A kind of mulchy, deep, rich rot that has no connotation of death or ending, but rather of life and age. A sense of perpetual destruction and rebirth.
