On our English pages, you often see the word "relationships". This is just sanitized language. On our English pages, "relationships" refers to what couples, when not sleeping, do in bed. Or, if so inclined, on the kitchen table.

English is a rather hypocritical language. Many words for natural bodily functions and processes have dirty connotations, and polite speakers like us have to go to considerable length to communicate meanings without naming them. But we nevertheless hope you get the point.


Tongkatali.org's Selling freedom in Third World countries


By Serge Kreutz


Many Third World countries possess a resource that potentially can be sold at a high profit: a disorganized social environment with intrinsic qualities of freedom. Local elites in such Third World countries often have more power over their societies than do elites in the developed world.

This entails that potentially, they could turn their countries’ disorganized environments into a merchandise to sell to rich people from developed countries who are in search of freedom.

This is not about furthering the development of Third World countries. It is not about benefiting the local populations other than the elites. If an atmosphere of poverty is the merchandise that can be marketed at good profit, then the trickling down of profits will destroy the product.

Luckily, local elites in many Third World countries are in the habit of expatriating their wealth to the West.

Currently, more people from rich countries than ever before work in Third World countries, because more and more companies from North America and Europe have a business presence there. This leads to more awareness among Westerners that living in countries outside of North America and Europe can be very rewarding indeed.

In coming years, more and more men from rich countries will settle in Third World countries, not so much for business opportunities but for opportunities of love and relationships with local women. And if migration decisions of rich men favor certain countries, then money will follow in their paths.

With the right policies, the elites of poor small countries could sell freedom. But they would have to implement policies to make their countries especially attractive to the rich of the West.

The following are just some measures that could attract rich people to poor Third World countries.

Taxation – Charge a flat foreign resident tax, e.g. 100 to 1000 dollars per month, but impose no local income tax, and no taxation on money earned internationally.

Second citizenship – Offer an easy second citizenship, even a temporary one… at a price (e.g. double or triple the foreign resident tax).

Special development zones – The rights of foreigners to reside in a country could be limited to special development zones.

Safety – Parts of the country where foreigners would reside, would have to be so safe that unaccompanied foreigners can walk alone anywhere in the night. Security-providing companies would also an easy opportunity for local elites to cash in.

Foreign businesses – Let foreigners run small businesses, such as restaurants, entertainment venues, hotels, small housing complexes, food production, and the like (in either all of the country, or in special development zones). This will generate all by itself the infrastructure that will be needed to attract ever more foreigners. Always just impose flat taxes that are independent from whether a business is successful or not.

Morals – Impose very few moral restrictions on consensual relationships relationships.

Because of the moral leniency requirement, the above model could not be implemented in countries with a mainly Islamic population. But the model may be well suited to attract citizens of Islamic countries who are dissatisfied with the strict moral rules of their home countries.

Tongkat ali and butea superba effects on health


By Serge Kreutz


So far, no explicit negative impact of tongkat ali and butea superba on general health has been established.

But what are negative impacts?

Take for example the habit of smoking tobacco. That has a very clear negative effect on health. Tobacco causes lung cancer and, of course, erectile dysfunction.



Or take alcohol. Alcohol causes liver damage, dementia, and, of course, erectile dysfunction.



Nothing like lung cancer or dementia to fear with tongkat ali or butea superba. And, of course, no erectile dysfunction.

Time to change your life, if so far you haven't.

No more tobacco, no more alcohol, but tongkat ali and butea superba, and, of course, great relationships.

You don't have to worry about negative health effects from tongkat ali or butea superba. The two, consumed at normal dosages, if anything, may make your life longer, not shorter.

Look at some famous tongkat ali users, such as Malaysian prime minister Dr. Mahathir MD.

Or take alcohol. Alcohol causes liver damage, dementia, and, of course, erectile dysfunction.



He is a medical doctor, a tongkat ali advocate, and 93. At age 92, when most people are fully decomposed, he was elected prime minister of Malaysia in a democratic exercise... as opposition candidate.


Tongkatali.org - Ideology: A materialistic perspective (if we understand the material causes for sweet love and outrageously good relationships, then we can engineer both of it)


By Serge Kreutz


Kreutz Ideology advocates a materialistic approach to understanding of the world. “Materialistic”, in this context, does not mean: driven by concerns for material benefit.

The materialism I refer to is a philosophical concept, built on the conviction that for everything that happens in the world, even in the realm of love and relationships, there is a cause in the material world, and this cause can maybe be investigated and maybe be understood. This is what science is about.

If causes have been investigated and understood, such causes can be reenacted, or created. This is when we take the step from science to technology, and engineering.

Science and technology are applicable to the emotion of missing a loved person no less than they are to bridging the Mississippi. Which is why the first series of articles I ever wrote on love and relationships was headlined “Engineering love”.

The opposite of philosophical materialism is philosophical idealism. Now, this idealism doesn’t refer to us being idealistic in that we try to build a better world, or, on a lower scale, a working long-term love relationship. Philosophical idealism refers to the idea that there is something outside the material world, on which the material world depends.

“Idealism is the doctrine that ideas, or thought, make up either the whole or an indispensable aspect of any full reality, so that a world of material objects containing no thought either could not exist as it is experienced, or would not be fully “real.” Idealism is often contrasted with materialism, both belonging to the class of monist as opposed to dualist or pluralist ontologies. (Note that this contrast between idealism and materialism has to do with the question of the nature of reality as such. It has nothing to do with advocating high moral standards, or the like.)”

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Idealism

I am not a philosophical idealist. I am a philosophical materialist. I understand that humans, though not all of them, can understand, to a certain degree, what happens in the world.

As they say: the proof of the pudding is in eating it. Or, the proof of our understanding is that we can make it. This applies equally to constructing bridges and to constructing optimal relationships of love and relationships.

However, there is an important twist to all of this. It is not just that, in as much as we understand the world, we can create it, but that, whether we understand the world or not, it always also creates us. When Darwin summarized the emerging knowledge on the origin of species, and when, subsequently, humans developed the knowledge of genetic engineering, it wasn’t just that we got better in shaping our world. Our new technologies also reflected back on us in no small dimension. Idealism took a major blow. And again, idealism will take another blow when medical science will have advanced to a stage, as it surely will, when in principle, it can afford humans an indefinite life span.

Alas, we are not quite there yet.

But regardless of when our technologies will have sufficiently evolved for this exciting prospect, the fact remains that it is our technologies, or (to use an older, and wider, designation) our modes of production that shape our opinions, and that only with sufficient cognition, we can see beyond this.

Just as our knowledge on the origin of species has important roots in 19th century philosophy, so does our understanding of the manner in which our modes of production reflect back on our minds.

The following is quoted from the preface of Karl Marx’ “A Contribution to the Critique of Political Economy”, written in 1859:

“The general conclusion at which I arrived and which, once reached, became the guiding principle of my studies can be summarized as follows. In the social production of their existence, men inevitably enter into definite relations, which are independent of their will, namely relations of production appropriate to a given stage in the development of their material forces of production. The totality of these relations of production constitutes the economic structure of society, the real foundation, on which arises a legal and political superstructure and to which correspond definite forms of social consciousness. The mode of production of material life conditions the general process of social, political and intellectual life. It is not the consciousness of men that determines their existence, but their social existence that determines their consciousness.”

http://www.marxists.org/archive/marx/works/1859/critique-pol-economy/preface.htm

In the original German version, the above quote reads like this: “Das allgemeine Resultat, das sich mir ergab und, einmal gewonnen, meinen Studien zum Leitfaden diente, kann kurz so formuliert werden: In der gesellschaftlichen Produktion ihres Lebens gehen die Menschen bestimmte, notwendige, von ihrem Willen unabhaengige Verhaeltnisse ein, Produktionsverhaeltnisse, die einer bestimmten Entwicklungsstufe ihrer materiellen Produktivkraefte entsprechen. Die Gesamtheit dieser Produktionsverhaeltnisse bildet die oekonomische Struktur der Gesellschaft, die reale Basis, worauf sich ein juristischer und politischer Ueberbau erhebt und welcher bestimmte gesellschaftliche Bewuusstseinsformen entsprechen. Die Produktionsweise des materiellen Lebens bedingt den sozialen, politischen und geistigen Lebensprozess ueberhaupt. Es ist nicht das Bewusstsein der Menschen, das ihr Sein, sondern umgekehrt ihr gesellschaftliches Sein, das ihr Bewusstsein bestimmt.”

Society and Mind in Marxian Philosophy

http://www.marxists.org/archive/pannekoe/society-mind/ch01.htm

To conclude that our minds mirror our modes of production is good science. But there is an anachronism in Marx’ thought. If anyway the modes of production determine ideologies, then the interference of Communist revolutionaries would be obsolete.

But Marx himself was a child of his times, when socialism among intellectuals was a fashionable idea.

Furthermore, his analysis of everybody belonging to a social class, the interests of which are reflected in his consciousness and ideologies, had more appeal in the 19th century but is less applicable to the more pluralistic and globalized present times. Nevertheless, it remains true that while on a social level, everybody’s consciousness and ideology is a representation of the modes of production, this consciousness and ideology is, on an individual level, a representation, or simply a rationalization, of a person’s interests.

I myself, of course, cannot escape the fact that my own ideology, too, is a representation of both, current technologies and my individual interests. However, I have at least some awareness of this interdependence.


Tongkatali.org's Religions and morals


By Serge Kreutz


If a man wants to get most out of life, a proper understanding of the meaning of life is very important. If a man is religiously misguided, then it doesn’t matter whether he is capable to compete. He doesn’t get it anyway.

In this respect, one has to differentiate between different religions. Christianity, for example, is more of an obstacle than Islam. The more pious one is in Christianity, the more restricted are one’s relationships options. For really pious Catholics, the proper path is priesthood, and that means that all relationships is forbidden.

Islam is, in fact, sexually more permissive than Christianity. Just don’t judge relationships permissiveness by comparing how apologetic a society is with respect to typical modern US boyfriend / girlfriend relationships.

While in the Christian afterlife, we are all asexual, the opposite is the case in the Islam heaven. Not only are Muslim martyrs promised a paradise with plenty of young, sexually willing playmates.[1] [2] [3] What they actually get is virgins that never had other men, and which they don’t have to share with other men. [4] [5] [6]

Even the most pious men in Islam not only are allowed to have relationships, families, and offspring. They don’t have to, but if they want, they can have many wives. [7] [8] [9] Throughout history, Muslim religious and worldly leaders often had their harems. Popes, by contrast, had to do their philandering in secrecy.

But if one were forced to live in the Middle Ages, and would be equipped with enough intelligence to achieve some wealth, and a secure social position, I’d pray to be placed in the Muslim, rather then the Christian world.

Even nowadays, and under certain circumstances, Muslim societies may be a better option than Christian ones (if simply for the fact that they are more immune to US cultural exports). [10][11] [12] [13]

Outside the Old World (which is Europe), and outside the New World (which is the Americas), there still is theThird World, which, on the one side, is determined by poverty, corruption, and mega cities, and on the other side by archaic fantasy-inspired alternatives to the modern world, as they could only blossom in the third millennium in an under-policed environment.

Tongkatali.org's Impotence or erectile dysfunction


By Serge Kreutz


Impotence is now medically referred to as erectile dysfunction. But impotence is more than just erectile dysfunction. It is lost maleness.

Impotence is a condition much more complicated than most diseases. Many diseases are single-cause conditions.

A specific virus causes the flu or hepatitis, and specific bacteria cause tuberculosis. Many other conditions are, by and large, single-symptom diseases. A broken bone, a cataract of the eye, or the shingles are easy to diagnose. There are clear symptoms that usually apply to just that health problem. Erectile dysfunction cannot be defined like this.

While “erectile dysfunction” has become the term of choice among doctors and educated patients, it’s probably less accurate a description of what’s wrong than the old word “impotence”. “Erectile dysfunction” is a technical term, and it sounds much less embarrassing than “impotence”.

But the general idea of lost maleness carried by the word “impotence” actually describes more precisely the implication of the condition discussed here. Impotence is more than just erectile dysfunction… it may or may not be a blood-vessel insufficiency. But it may also be a loss of desire regulated by a certain neurotransmitter balance. It may have hormonal or psychological causes, or it may be a problem of sympathetic and parasympathetic nerve impulses. Erectile dysfunction, a lack of erection, is just a part of the condition impotence. Assuring an appropriate blood pressure in the male relationships organ does not solve the problem. That’s why erection injections and erection pumps (see youtube here) are not satisfactory by themselves. An erection without desire is a waste of effort (and money), and desire without the capability of a definite orgasm results in frustration rather than satisfaction.



Standardised water‐soluble extract of Eurycoma longifolia, Tongkat ali, as testosterone booster for managing men with late‐onset hypogonadism?

Tambi MI, Imran MK, Henkel RR.

Summary

In most countries, millions of people are relying on herbal medicines as remedy for numerous ailments. In South‐East Asia, Eurycoma longifolia Jack, also known as ‘Malaysian ginseng’ or Tongkat ali, is used to combat stress and disease and to improve physical strength. Moreover, the compounds of the roots of this plant are reported to have aphrodisiac and testosterone enhancing effects in the rat. Considering that human studies are not available, 76 of 320 patients suffering from late‐onset hypogonadism (LOH) were given 200 mg of a standardised water‐soluble extract of Tongkat ali for 1 month. The Ageing Males’ Symptoms (AMS) according to the standardised rating scale and the serum testosterone concentration were taken. Results show that treatment of LOH patients with this Tongkat ali extract significantly (P < 0.0001) improved the AMS score as well as the serum testosterone concentration. While before treatment only 10.5% of the patients did not show any complaint according to the AMS scale and 35.5% had normal testosterone levels, after the completed treatment 71.7% and 90.8% of the patients showed normal values, respectively. Thus, Tongkat ali extract appears to be useful as a supplement in overcoming the symptoms of LOH and for the management of hypogonadism.
