I think the fate of this country was sealed when the Supreme Court ruled corporations can be considered "individuals." There's little chance of getting money out politics, now. Yeah, they're "individuals" -- until a consumer tries to sue one. Then suddenly they're protected &quo...

Once you abolish democracy there is no going back. Well, sure. - But there are a surprising number of people who want desperately an autocracy.

You can't think like a scientist 9-5pm and then pray to mythical metaphysical beings after hours (although that's what happens). The methods are diametrically opposed, so it would be quite the act to pull off. In one method, information is welcome and harvested eagerly; in the other method, informa...

Strip all complexities away and ---

Democracy is the only system (such as it is) where the rights of the individual are placed above the rights of the government.

There are democracies better and worse, but consider the alternatives

Two fundamental methods with which to navigate life: 1. Belief; 2. Observation and reason. Pros and cons may be argued for both methods, but these produce people very different in every way - can see the impact in such things as response to covid https://www.wsj.com/amp/articles/white-evangelicals-r...

Yep. End last year. And it works - because just flight-tested it. Picked up probable Delta.
