Genghis Khan’s socialism of the fittest

An interesting exhibit about Genghis Khan's "enduring legacy" hit the Denver Museum of Nature and Science two years ago and continues its US tour, so you can still learn about "the ruthless warlord who conquered half the known world," but who "is also revered as an innovative leader and statesman who brought unity, stability, and much more to his people."   When it comes to curatorial decisions at a museum, I always wonder: why now? Indeed it's hard to deny, when you look a little deeper, that Genghis Khan was a renaissance man for the Bilderberg set.   No seriously. Genghis Khan used to vie with Attila the Hun for most cruel overlord. Their reputations for inhumanity defied the western imagination. Now apparently it's thought that both leaders of barbarian hordes have been undervalued, and dare it be suggested, unfairly maligned? I'll tell you what's happened. It's becoming transparent that the techniques of Western war making, invasion, mass killing and ruthless administration of foreign occupation look a lot like the work of Khan. So it's small wonder elements in our culture want to pay him tribute. 11297

DMNS refutes allegations of data misuse

NOTMYTRIBE received this response from the Denver Museum of Nature and Science to our post: IS THE MUSEUM OF NATURE AND SCIENCE GATHERING PRIVATE DATA FOR HEALTH INSURERS? In the July 26 article I outlined concerns that medical data specialists could be harvesting checkup results conducted on visitors to the DMNS exhibit "Expedition Health." 8297

Is the Museum of Nature and Science gathering health data for insurers?

DENVER- At the Denver Museum of Nature and Science the most popular exhibit this summer is called "Expedition Health" and features high-tech diagnostic kiosks where visitors can gauge the general state of their health. Judging by the long lines, you'd think these people haven't visited a doctor lately. I suspect that unless the medical insurance underwriters of the exhibit can be trusted, many of the DMNS-goers won't get to see a doctor again. 8286
