Pure solutions researcher. It's not a real problem unless there's a solution approach, but it isn't a personal problem unless I can do something to advance a solution. So there.

    Yeah, also author of books about “virtue”. ROFLMAO.

    But the credit for destroying public education goes way back. Quite a bit with super-hypocrite Bill Bennett, Secretary of anti-Education back in the ‘80s. Last I heard he was still around and supporting the orange puppet, fruit of Bill’s poisoned schools.

    Too bad the lunatics aren’t so logical. They’ll probably pick the “relatively” deepest state. Or maybe just every state with a lower average elevation than Colorado will be called a “deep state”?

    How about making a fake video with Jesus doing some of his bits: “You’re fired!” At what point would the morons get the message that the orange puppet is a sick buffoon?

    The link to Hades is confusing me. Dying for it makes sense, but why that direction afterwards? The car is evil?

    I have made similar comments, though often include leaders like Netanyahu as not equal to their nations. They are acting in their own interest, not their nations’. Louis XIV was wrong.

    Not sure if the story is true. Seems hard to believe the donors (and their accountants) could be so stupid and easily gulled…

    However there are times corruption can be useful. I still believe Arafat could have been bribed for peace—if only the Zionists had wanted peace. Yeah, Arafat was a vicious terrorist, but he had the credibility to lead the Palestinians to an actual peace treaty—and I think he was corrupt enough to be bribed. Since Arafat died the the Zionists have worked hard to make sure the Palestinians don’t have any unified leadership. Oh wait. How did Hamas get started again? (Though I think some gullible Iranians were also played for suckers.)

    Sad story. Good device but MS convinced the company to commit suicide. Good device with a fair profit is no defense. Main legacy is multi-device sync?

    The analysis is too shallow. Yes, about 30% are authoritarian followers who actively hate freedom and want to be told what to do and believe and even think. (Normally that isn’t such a big problem because they are all over the place, and they are only dangerous now because so many of them think they are in the same camp.) The largest group is more neutral. These “neutrals” mostly like freedom but don’t want to work too hard at being free. I think they almost surely the majority overall. (The key there is how public education has been attacked to train them to be more easily manipulated.)

    That leaves a small group of people who actively like freedom. I think they are actually divided into two groups. One group sees freedom as a zero sum game. These are the dictators who want more freedom by removing other people’s freedom. (They strongly target that 30% who want to follow.) The other group sees freedom as a win-win game, where more freedom for other people also creates more freedom for themselves. (I hope I am in the last group based on how the information needed to be free is distributed. The more widely distributed the data, the harder it is for anyone to manipulate other people, including me.)
