    What has happened over the past 30 years is the capture of the world’s common treasury by a handful of people, assisted by neoliberal policies which were first imposed on rich nations by Thatcher and Reagan.

At some point, there is so much 'inbreeding' in all good boy clubs that they collapse....then the society that they work in.

Particularly useful for the Airbus since they crash so often.

Most probably because they've never explored their world and

probably don't give a shit enough to put out the money for quality.

...their kids will have none.

AI/intelligent machines will be producing everything then...at no cost.

They'll be able to do what they want, when they want.

This kinda shit was built by Demicans.

It's what turned me into a Political Atheist.

I stand on their collective desk and piss on their heads.

It's a people store out there.

But maybe you like it better alone.

Sometimes I do, sometimes not but I've learned to appreciate aloneness.

I don't watch TV w/ commercials.

I guess I'm left out.

Too bad, not so sad-

'No one is indispensable' now arrives with a vengeance.

Not to worry. They can do anything so much better and hugely cheaper than mistake prone humans, we'll eventually be living high on that piggy for nothing.

Sounds like the answer to: What do the transvestite and the transhumanist have in common?

I couldn't resist.

I've heard good things about Ubuntu but I put Mint (Cinnamon) on a stick and boot with that.

There's plenty of info out there and many willing to help when there's a snag...very active Mint forums.

Well, I'll be....and all this time I never knew it went anywhere.

EDIT: The academic mind seems quite quantum to me: If it's looking for it it's there, if not, it's not.

But now that I think on't, that's the way we're all built. The academics are just more vocal about it.

It's a good point. And the idea of the mind as a quantum field metaphor is now getting more attention in cognitive psychology.

That article was very unusual coming from The Economist, an MSM pitch-the-matrix rag.

The possibilities using the blockchain are mind-blowing.

IIRC there were Danes that farmed there some hundreds of years ago.
