The developments in Canada these past few days are outrageous. I believe we may be about to witness the wholesale fleecing of a nation’s wealth by stealth coup, in a first world democracy. The unholy alliance of liberals, socialists and separatists with no aim other than to empty the treasury by flooding the country will billions of dollars, to be paid by future generations (with their freedom?).
Is this perhaps what would be required to impose the Venus Project on the world? Who knows. Just watch and learn. I strongly recommend the book, it had a significant influence on my thinking at a young age. Also, Frederick Hayek’s “The Road to Serfdom“.
It amuses me to no end how the vast majority of ratings my articles receive are either 1 star or 5 stars. Am I really that controversial or do people just naturally divide into 2 groups? (Is there actually something to this 2-party system nonsense?) I don’t know the answer, but I thought I would share a few brief thoughts.
This video is a bit old, the US dollar is temporarily rising as I post this comment, but the purpose of this clip is to help people understand that capitalism and debt based money are not the same. America was never intended to have a central bank. You can be capitalist without this ball and chain around our knecks. Free market capitalists hate the current system and have been predicting it’s end for decades.
Many people are pleased with the election of Obama, but I have observed that most of the blindly hopeful are also blindly clueless as to the true nature of the various crises afflicting the United States. My question I suppose is whether it matters — can psychology alone cure these problems?
Yesterday I discussed the incredible benefits of open source software in terms of reducing costs for startups and promoting competition in the marketplace… but the real magic of software is the concept of abstraction, it’s when a developer can consume a service using a single stable interface regardless of how the producer chooses to implement the service behind the scenes. The multitude of choices in the software realm (compounded by the open source world) necessitates standard interfaces for these components. I wonder if other industries could also benefit from similar ideas.
