The study of the Egyptian civilization has drastically renewed itself in recent years thanks to the contribution of historians, linguists and African Egyptologists whose work focuses on the... More > indisputably African origin of this civilization. The famous Cairo Symposium of 1974 (UNESCO) is seen as the starting point of the recovery of this African heritage. However, it is clear that the African academic institutions are quite slow to include Egyptology as a field of study in university and elementary school curricula. If such action is undertaken, it will have the advantage of educating international opinion in general and African opinion in particular on the scientific achievements made in this discipline. Not only Africa is the indisputable “Cradle of Humankind”, as evidenced by facts, but this Continent also reflects the emergence of the most brilliant civilization the world has ever known: the Egyptian civilization. Maat, the concept to which this essay is devoted, is the idea behind this civilization.< Less

Econonarcosis: The Economic Pathology of Deficit Spending Within Grow or Perish Economic Systems By W. D. Raymondson
eBook (PDF): $4.50
During the last century school curricula often included studies in capitalism, communism and the workings of economic systems. However, today there is not enough public information about the values... More > and vulnerabilities of capitalism and economic expansionism. Like it or not, our world is driven by its economic systems which have evolved to a point where they appear to be out of control. Unfortunately most of the news spots and talk shows only talk about the symptoms of what ails our national and international economies and never about the values or vulnerabilities of capitalism or the consequences of 'Grow or Perish' systems or the actual dynamics about what makes an economy thrive or fail. There are few economic systems to choose from, but no matter what economic system Civilization decides to use in the future, all are doomed to failure if we insist on 'Political Correctness' and only talk around the real-world growth issues and ask nothing about what makes any economic system actually succeed or fail.< Less
