Kyle Rittenhouse On Trial: Build A Movement To Defeat the Far-Right

The capitalist legal system is never favorable terrain for winning the demands of working people, and this trial is no exception. Before the trial even began, Judge Bruce Schroeder ruled that the protesters Rittenhouse shot cannot be referred to as “victims” and should instead be referred to as “looters” and “rioters.” During the proceedings, not only has Schroeder made unprofessional and racist comments towards Asian people, but he has already paved the way for the jury to clear Rittenhouse of his firearm possession charge.

Is human consciousness creating reality?

The paper’s authors include Robert Lanza, a stem cell and regenerative medicine expert, famous for the theory of biocentrism, which argues that consciousness is the driving force for the existence of the universe. He believes that the physical world that we perceive is not something that’s separate from us but rather created by our minds as we observe it. According to his biocentric view, space and time are a byproduct of the “whirl of information” in our head that is weaved together by our mind into a coherent experience.
