“There’s A Genius Street Artist Running Loose In The Streets, And Let’s Hope Nobody Catches Him.” (Thanks, Mel!)
Once few jobs are truly “necessary” and a Universal Basic Income scheme is deployed so all can enjoy the fruits of the technology that has rendered them obsolete (and everything is powered “virtually free” by the sun), we should pay talented folks to do this EVERYWHERE!
Rachel takes a long time to lay this out, but it comes down to this: We all saw Putin asked in Helsinki whether he wanted Trump to win the Presidency. We all saw him say yes, and explain why. Both the White House and the Kremlin have edited that out of the official transcripts — and the White House has edited it out of the video. So it never happened. Can you define Orwellian?
“Orwellian” . . . denotes an attitude and a brutal policy of draconian control by propaganda, surveillance, misinformation, denial of truth, and manipulation of the past, including the “unperson”—a person whose past existence is expunged from the public record and memory, practised by modern repressive governments. Often, this includes the circumstances depicted in his novels, particularly Nineteen Eighty-Four . . .
And while we’re at it, can you define sociopath?
Quote of the Day
It was only 80 years from the time Darwin published ON THE ORIGIN OF SPECIES until we detonated the first nuclear bomb. In the lifetime of one person, we went from figuring out where we came from to figuring out how to get rid of ourselves.~Paleontologist Jack Horner
