What is the nature of money? Did it really evolve out of barter, and, if not, why is that myth so prevalent? What theories of money have been proposed in the past and how do they hold up? What monetary alternatives are on the table and how can they be improved? These are the types of questions that will be explored in a new Massive Open Online Course on "Money and Society" being offered by the Institute for Leadership and Sustainability. Today James talks to course co-creator Dr. Jem Bendell abo [...]

The studies are in: it’s time to escape Monsanto’s GMOs and start giving your body the nutrients it really needs to thrive. One of the largest issues we currently face is finding meals that aren’t loaded with GMOs and toxic additives that actually taste good. That’s why we decided to release my new e-book, “The Organic Non-GMO Cookbook & Shopping Guide,” now available for pre-order exclusively through the Natural Society Shop.
There’s absolutely zer [...]
By Steven MacMillanThis summer, Apple is set to introduce its “contactless payment technology” Apple Pay to Britain, shortly after a secret meeting was reported to have taken place in London to “end cash”. The iPhone is already fitted with a wireless microchip which can be used to pay in a similar manner to contactless cards, with The Telegraph suggesting Apple Pay could be rolled out in the UK as soon as August. Apple’s website promotes Apple Pay as:Your wallet. Without the wallet. Pa [...]
The USDA has officially announced that it will soon be rolling out their new ‘Non-GMO labels’ worldwide. This is an organization that has admittedly given Monsanto ‘fast track approval‘ with less safety testing for their latest GMO crops. Now is the time to hold the USDA accountable for their Non-GMO labels, and to demand that the agency recruits the help of independent scientific agencies to verify the accuracy of these labels.
We have officially launched an accountabil [...]
By Rory HallOne of the most effective means the elite use today to get their way and push a particular agenda is to make it “hip, swinging and very, very cool”. Another way is to simply tell you what is obsolete and “out dated”. Who wants to be “behind the times”? Certainly not someone who is looking for the next “really cool” gadget! No, this particular person wants to be on the “cutting edge” of the “next big thing”! Enter the banking cabal and their desire to hav [...]

Social media has proved to be a powerful tool in the spreading of life-saving information over the past several years, with countless grassroots campaigns receiving funding and support due to simple Facebook and Twitter campaigns. And despite the numerous concerns with these platforms regarding privacy and beyond, the reality is that they can be utilized to really reach people.
That’s why I am excited to see the major impact that Natural Society has made in the lives of millions thanks to [...]
It was a subtle and quick moment in the film, but one worthy of pointing out.
Terry Gilliam’s latest The Zero Theorem portrays a near-future society run by scientific materialism, a place where hyper-stimulation through the ever-present telescreens, billboards, targeted advertisements that literally follow you down the street, pop music, signs and other continuous stimuli have created a dumbed-down, consumerist society with little meaning.
Only slightly ahead of where Western culture has a [...]

Jon RappoportActivist Post“In experiments on mice, scientists rewired the circuits of the brain and changed the animals’ bad memories into good ones…The researchers said they were able to do the opposite as well—change a pleasurable memory in mice into one associated with fear.” (Kevin Drum, Mother Jones, 8/27/14)Aldous Huxley once wrote to George Orwell:[The world’s rulers’] lust for power can be just as completely satisfied by suggesting people into loving their servitude as [...]

A new Christmas “tradition” has emerged that not only has Santa making a list of who’s naughty and nice, but a personal “elf” to watch over children, spy on them in every room and “report” back to the North Pole ahead of Christmas.
And… the toy makers promise that parents have found it to be a useful “behavior modification” tool, with kids acting different when they believe someone is watching their every move.
In the context of the reality we live in [...]

Michael SnyderActivist Post If only George Orwell could see us today. When he wrote 1984 back in 1948, he probably never imagined that the “totalitarian, bureaucratic world” that he imagined would ever actually become a reality. But that is precisely what is happening.We live at a time when the government monitors billions of our phone calls and emails and hardly anyone gets upset about it. We live at a time when corporations systematically collect our voiceprints and ou [...]
Aaron Dykes and Melissa MeltonActivist Post The 1974 cult classic Zardoz is recognized more for the ridiculous outfit Sean Connery wears in the leading role than the underlying message about not just where society will one day go, but where society is already headed.The power of the State has tipped towards extremism, and thus control over the population.Behind this balance of power is the philosophy of its controllers, poisoned by the elite-mindset of the moneyed-class and the promise of pr [...]

Did you realize that all conventional methods of killing cancer have only a 3% overall ‘cure’ rate? Chemotherapy and radiation not only have low cure rates, but they also kill healthy cells and often make cancer worse, when this is completely unnecessary because most cells can be reverted into healthy, non-damaging cells with the right treatment.
That’s not something the American Cancer Society (ACS) and Susan G. Komen for the Cure want you to know, though. They are in bed with Big [...]
