Re: Pitchforks And Torches Will No Longer Be Able To Stop The 1%

I wholeheartedly agree with Jessica we need AI safety measures first to control the Technological Singularity. Even Ray Kurzweil promotes this approach of creating safeguards and standards in advance. This is only logical. Singularity Hub Ray Kurzweil: We Can Control AI Before It Controls Us By Andr...

Re: Don't be fooled by the wealthy's economic research deception

Reducing poverty and reducing economic inequality are not the same thing regardless of liberal or conservative ideology. We should not fall for this deception or be fooled into thinking that just because poverty decreases, economic inequality simultaneously decreases. Although the two interact with ...

Re: A New Theory Of Quantum Entangled Morality-Or-Why Are Republicans More Immoral than Democrats?

So here we go again. Republicans want to shut down Obamacare without having a viable substitute plan. Not only will this injure a huge amount of people, which is an immoral act as explained by Doctor A's theory of immorality, but the serial lying in and of itself is immoral. Lies are immoral because...

Re: Brain Structure Drives The Consequent Effects Of Economic Inequality

Thank you Doctor A for clarifying why past activist rules of engagement regarding economic inequality with the 1% are impotent at best. Your articulation and clarity as to the mechanisms holding the 99% in bondage is refreshing to see. I too have similar thoughts as to why my activism is not working...

Re: FirstRateCrowd's EIRA

Elizabeth Warren"s plan to tax the rich may be unconstitutional because only certain types of taxes can be levied and her plan does not meet the constitutional criteria. No matter how much I like the idea, it may never get out of the starting gate. Jewish World Review Elizabeth Warren's popular plan...

Re: Brain Structure Drives The Consequent Effects Of Economic Inequality

I wish to point out a profound aspect regarding one's thoughts on the formation of economic inequality. The speed at which the subconscious processes information compared to the conscious mind is dramatic. Whereas mental process at the conscious level operate in the realm of seconds, the subconsciou...

Re: New Age Slavery

Give me a break! Nobel Prize winner Robert Schiller says Senator Warrens Wealth Tax probably will not work and proposes a plan that would kick in 10 years into the future should inequality "become catastrophic." Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren has just proposed a wealth tax on Americans worth...

Re: Brain Structure Drives The Consequent Effects Of Economic Inequality

From my undergraduate days in college I learned we are only aware of 5% of our brain activity and the other 95% is subconscious. Economic inequality works the same way; neuroscience research indicates most of our thoughts on the matter have been preordained by the unconscious portion of our brains a...

Re: Don't be fooled by the wealthy's economic research deception

Growing economic inequality is a significant factor killing the Social Security program. Because the rich are exempt from paying into the system after an income cap of $132,900 (in 2019), the burden to maintain the system falls onto the shoulders of those who are poorer. As noted in the previous pos...
