What’s up with this universal income thing? To me, Universal Basic Income represents giving up. It is a statement about the rich being so rich and owning so much of everything that they are basically creating an imaginary economy with the sole purpose of preserving their status.
Universal basic income is a way for the rich to protect themselves from having to solve the world for the poor.
Think about it this way: the real wealth is property. Property is heavily owned by the rich. …
It seems to me that us poor and average people are missing on a very important aspect of social divides. The power in wealth is multiplied by the society’s technological prowess.
What do I mean by this? Here are three examples:
I’m not gonna tell you another save your children story. …
Money or profit is the sun.
Mercury is sales. The closest to it, taking all the heat. The ones on the sun side are cold calling, direct sales. On the backside, in the hot dark, commercial contracts, deals, and new business.
Venus is marketing. Looking cool on the outside but a literal hell on the inside. The atmosphere is hyper toxic and the heat these folks take is more because of themselves rather than the sun.
Earth is the top-executives, higher management. On the best spot in the solar system. …
Imagine a big tree. A big tree with … cherries, because apples are overused. So a cherry tree with a seesaw under its treetop. On this seesaw, two kids are playing so that aside from having fun from the ups and downs, they can also pick and eat some of the cherries. They do so by keeping each other up so they can reach and pick the fruits hanging from the tree’s branches. They take turns so that neither gets angry, upset or bored.
This game is fun! Everyone is engaged and you get treats when it’s your turn.
I see trees of green,
Legit I see them too, nice trees
Red roses too,
Yes, I have a few in my garden
I see them bloom,
I rarely get to see them bloom because I am so busy all the time.
For me and you,
Oooh. For me? I dont think they bloom for me… maybe for the bees, waiting for those missing bees those flowers are
And I think to myself:
What a wonderful world.
Tru story bro.
I see skies of blue and clouds of white,
Yes, and too many trails of planes, smog and cyanide
Our so touted “World Peace” owes to corruption far more than it does to capitalist globalized commerce. It is one of the optimists’ worst founded ideas.
The truth is mankind's deepest superstition. There is no objective truth, other than mathematical truth. Everything else being subjective is, eventually not true.
The large majority of people never think about anything which is not immediate, so in effect acting as automatons of their own story. The lack of foresight, caution, prediction, care or planning is staggering. So few people really want something.
Do you notice how the rich keep taking property away from…
I went to see the latest Guy Ritchie movie, The gentlemen, a movie about a white drug dealer, with a white no. 2, who tries to sell his, good intentions only, drug business of growing, harvesting, packaging, selling and distributing pot, a business with dozens of locations spread throughout the UK on the estates of bankrupt noble families.
There is a jew who, when he sees the opportunity, can’t resist and tries to screw the honest working white drug dealer, because jews in presence of money are like sharks in a fish tank. …
Have you ever started to move furniture around the house for no reason? Like making more “space”, or adding order to chaos? Or removing clutter, unearthing things to throw away?
Have you gotten to the end of exhausting work days only to realize that you solved none of the root problems? There might be more order, there might be less cruft. Yet, your house is still small, and all your stuff is the same but in different places.
That is how I see software rewrites: some things will be better, but the main problems will be only moved around.
Is that too much courage? Oh wait, in fact there is no such thing, it’s only cost optimisation and packaging design.
I find it unacceptable to buy a ten dolla’ sticker to make useable all these “pro” devices . This is nonsense. People who use their 3k laptops for showing off and entertainment are the vast majority. Of course if you ask the market you’ll get the obvious answer that glossy is “what people prefer”. That is a stupid argument though. …
Google and Facebook live and breathe privacy sold to advertisers, governments and manipulative systems of mass deception. Old news.
However, for business purposes, I wonder, how much tracking and fingerprinting is enough? Do businesses actually want to strip the consumer of any kind of cognitive effort? Then what kind of experience is that? If I get to want something because systems know I will want it, what kind of commercial experience is this?
Anyway, back to the point in the title, this whole privacy business, I understand it: I am the product, OK. But what I don’t understand…
I write so you feel like you’ve just had an idea. It’s a nice feeling.
