Десет Цинични Есета (популярно мировъзрение) — Част Втора
Pre-release—available February 1, 2018. Price: $1.99 USD. Words: 38,510. Language: Bulgarian. Categories: Nonfiction » Philosophy » Contemporary philosophy, Nonfiction » Philosophy » Essays
In Bulgarian. Това е философска книга, но тя е популярна и без особени термини, така че е достъпна за всички. В определена степен цинизмът е мировъзрение, което не чете морал (даже обратното), и не идеализира нещата, но, независимо от това, предлага сериозен поглед за света. Според мен тя би трябвало да е интересна за всички млади хора (а и за възрастните), но все пак не е развлекателно четиво.
Десять Циничных Эссе (популярное мировоззрение) — Часть Вторая
Pre-release—available January 1, 2018. Price: $2.49 USD. Words: 35,030. Language: Russian. Categories: Nonfiction » Philosophy » Contemporary philosophy, Nonfiction » Philosophy » Essays
In Russian. Это философская книга, но она популярная, без особых терминов, так что доступная для всех. В определенной мере цинизм это мировоззрение, которое не читает мораль (а даже напротив), и не идеализирует вещи, но, тем не менее, дает серьезный взгляд на мир. По моему она должна быть интересной для всех молодых людей (а и для взрослых), но все таки не для развлекательного чтения.
Ten Cynical Essays (Popular Worldview) — Part Two
Pre-release—available December 1, 2017. Price: $2.99 USD. Words: 43,440. Language: English. Categories: Nonfiction » Philosophy » Contemporary philosophy, Nonfiction » Philosophy » Essays
This is philosophical book, but it is popular and without special terms so that is accessible for all. To a certain extent the cynicism is worldview that does not preach moral and does not idealize the things, but, still, gives serious look about the world. In my view it must be interesting for all young people (and for the older, too), but nevertheless it is not entertainment reading.

Why did the State implement a Family Planning Program for the lower classes when policy makers thought they were incapable of being uplifted?

This nationalist Malthusian narrative aims to maintain a high level of population growth.

Population Interuptus
Price: $1.50 USD. Words: 5,800. Language: English. Published: June 25, 2015. Categories: Fiction » Poetry » Female authors
Population Interuptus has a political bent living in the age of more cameras focused on the public. There are 52 poems. The title comes from the aftermath of abortion and the pill (leaving families with fewer or no children). The poems don't reflect that though. They are about the government spying on you where they store information in differing locations I have made up names (poems) to describe.
