The Power of Hate: Understand how twelve great minds used hatred to achieve the impossible

by Amples Regiani

Written by the TEDx Speaker & Award-winning creative: Amples Regiani

Are you sure that hatred is evil?

Since ancient Greece, the concept of hatred has been lowered, ignored, belittled, undervalued and sometimes even demonized. And its power minimized, underestimated and diminished, from Aristotle to Descartes all philosophers have interpreted it as something negative, defining it as “The desire for the annihilation of an object and have considered it incurable over time”.

The logic is straightforward: if love is good and hate is the opposite of love, then hatred is bad.

At first glance it is evident. In ‘The Power of Hate’ we will review History and enter an exciting journey through some of the most brilliant minds of humanity to discover that hate, a feeling cursed through the centuries, is the ultimate powerful engine for human overcoming.

Understand and learn how great personalities used hate as fuel to achieve the impossible, reviewing the analysis and practical exercises of each chapter:

1. Ferruccio Lamborghini
2. Jack Ma
3. Michael Jordan
4. Reed Hastings
5. Steve Jobs
6. Mike Tyson
7. La Madre Teresa
8. Cristiano Ronaldo
9. Elon Musk
10. Rudolf & Adolf Dassler
11. Lance Armstrong
12. Madonna Ciccone

Join me in this short but intense story in which you will understand the capacity of hate to serve as a powerful tool of motivation, capable of decisively changing our lives.

An American Eutopia: a traveler’s guide

by Luke Lea

In these notes toward a new way of life in America, Luke Lea explores a world of New Country Towns in which the people work part-time outside the home (12-to-24 hours a week) and in their free time build their own houses, cultivate gardens, cook and care for their children and grandchildren, and pursue hobbies and other outside interests. They live on small family homesteads grouped around neighborhood greens, and get around town in glorified golf-carts. So thoroughly are work and leisure integrated into the fabric of their everyday lives that they don’t feel much need to retire, and they die at home in their beds as a rule, surrounded by loved ones.

For those who would like to move to this world he provides a map with some directions for how to get there from here.

Kick out the Fairy in You and let the Woman out

by Simona Ruffini

The first manual that won’t change you into another person, but it will teach you how to be You.
Welcome to you, who managed to get here If you, just like many others, have always felt wrong, inevitably but inexorably kept comparing yourself to other Women, are tired of the self-help manuals who want to turn you into someone you are not, well then this is the right place for you.
Just so you know, you are not alone. And most of all, what happens to you is normal. The message I want to convey to you through these pages is that you are just fine. I am not saying you are perfect and that you don’t need to keep bettering yourself. I am saying that the first step to become what you are destined to be is to be exactly who you already are. So why this book, you may be asking? And why has this book been written by a criminologist, who takes on many cases of abuse towards women? What do spiritual evolution, self-love, the Light, and abuse on women have in common? I can explain with a simple example. You are looking for a job. You know how much you are worth, what it is that you are looking for, and you know exactly how much money you should be paid. At your job interview, they offer you a dissatisfactory job, way below your capabilities and aspirations, and not properly compensated at all. You stand up, thank them, and walk away. What does this example mean? Well, take this instance and place it into a personal relationship. What would happen if, instead of your boss, that man was a significant other or a boyfriend? Would you settle to spend the rest of your life with a man who does not satisfy you, who does not appreciate you, who does not support you, but actually only tries to manipulate you and make you feel bad? You are not happy with your weight but you are unable to lose it; You hate your job but think you can’t aspire to become anything better; You have a dream but you think you “will never be able to fulfill it”; You wish you could move but have no idea of where to start. When a Woman doesn’t love herself, she only lives a half-life. A body she doesn’t like and doesn’t reflect who she is; A job that doesn’t satisfy her; A place where she doesn’t live the way she’d like to; Friends and relationships that don’t gratify her; An image of herself in which she feels lost. Every time you put something else or somebody else before yourself, you are at risk of losing yourself. I don’t want you to be selfish, but to love yourself, which is different. This book stems from the “Project of Women of Light”, something I have dedicated many years of my life to and that I deeply love. With the Project of Women of Light, I have helped many Women “find themselves before they get lost”! The world needs you.

Forging the Ideal Educated Girl: The Production of Desirable Subjects in Muslim South Asia (Islamic Humanities Book 1)

by Shenila Khoja-Moolji

A free ebook version of this title is available through Luminos, University of California Press’s Open Access publishing program for monographs. Visit www.luminosoa.org to learn more.

In Forging the Ideal Educated Girl, Shenila Khoja-Moolji traces the figure of the â??educated girl’ to examine the evolving politics of educational reform and development campaigns in colonial India and Pakistan. She challenges the prevailing common sense associated with calls for women’s and girls’ education and argues that such advocacy is not simply about access to education but, more crucially, concerned with producing ideal Muslim woman-/girl-subjects with specific relationships to the patriarchal family, paid work, Islam, and the nation-state. Thus, discourses on girls’/ women’s education are sites for the construction of not only gender but also class relations, religion, and the nation.
  



Transitions in Energy Efficiency and Demand (Open Access): The Emergence, Diffusion and Impact of Low-Carbon Innovation (Routledge Studies in Energy Transitions)

Meeting the goals enshrined in the Paris Agreement and limiting global temperature increases to less than 2°C above pre-industrial levels demands rapid reductions in global carbon dioxide emissions. Reducing energy demand has a central role in achieving this goal, but existing policy initiatives have been largely incremental in terms of the technological and behavioural changes they encourage. Against this background, this book develops a sociotechnical approach to the challenge of reducing energy demand and illustrates this with a number of empirical case studies from the United Kingdom. In doing so, it explores the emergence, diffusion and impact of low-energy innovations, including electric vehicles and smart meters. The book has the dual aim of improving the academic understanding of sociotechnical transitions and energy demand and providing practical recommendations for public policy.


Combining an impressive range of contributions from key thinkers in the field, this book will be of great interest to energy students, scholars and decision-makers.

Revival of the West: Securing a Future for European People

by Mathijs Koenraadt

This book deconstructs the myth of progressive liberalism. The author explores left-wing ideals of equality, diversity, social justice and open society, and exposes them as empty fiction.

The fate of modern civilization rests solely on the shoulders of men and women willing to defend it. After the European colonial age, the discovery of the New World, the Industrial Revolution and the establishment of the modern West, Western man has arrived at a crisis. Has he exhausted himself like Goethe’s Faust? Should he end his quest for greatness and let others take charge of the world he built? Should he dissolve his ego and hide himself in the safe comfort of anonymous masses? Or should he, at long last, unleash his suppressed potential?

High on a cocktail of sugar, nicotine, caffeine, alcohol, antidepressants, penicillin and other drugs, people have fallen into a collective trance. Like the light at the end of the tunnel, the drunk masses think they are approaching eternal paradise on Earth, but in reality they are marching towards the abyss of their extinction. Only those foreseeing souls who have the courage to return their people to more traditional lifestyles, only those who are willing to break away from mass humanity, only they may jump the abyss and cheat destiny.
