Re: New Age Slavery

A revolution is speeding towards us with the possibility of the USA soon becoming a collapsed state; the collapse is brewing in plain sight. Historically, just like the collapse of the Roman empire, this is what we would expect. High levels of economic inequality, as expressed as an elevated Gini co...

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

Reducing poverty is not the same as reducing economic inequality and a hand full of billionaires in the USA who decry economic inequality will not reverse the trend of ever growing inequality. Any billionaire who is against economic inequality has my praise and cherished admiration but we need to pu...

Re: New Age Slavery

I strongly concur with Doctor A's assessment there will be no privacy in the future or at least anything resembling what we consider as a standard of privacy today. Privacy standards will become distorted to meet the needs of the looming Singularity. Doctor A's quote from the Singularity Hub, "Will ...

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

New digital pitchforks and torches will be ineffective at stopping the 1% because the elite will have the financial wherewithal to defend themselves from attacks. They will spend ungodly sums of money to harden their defenses rendering such digital tools futile. As a standard course of action, the e...

Re: FirstRateCrowd's EIRA

Doctor A presents a new and compelling model for activists fighting against inequality. I now understand why my past actions, so filled with youthful exuberance, were ineffective in bringing about the change I yearned for the world with my advocacy at the local, state, and national levels. As I now ...

Re: FirstRateCrowd's EIRA

Senator Elizabeth Warren wants a wealth tax on the rich. However, there are some major obstacles to implementing this program. If it does pass, a major concern is its sustain-ability over the long term due to the obscene amount of money in politics and poor-governance related to regulatory capture. ...

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

Do not blame the robots or technology for economic inequality. It is people who are to blame and their surrogate corporations who carry out their will to wantonly create ever increasing inequality without retribution. To quote from the forgoing post, It is these people, the rich with their greedy fe...

Re: Brain Structure Drives The Consequent Effects Of Economic Inequality

On one hand it seems the brain structure of conservatives vs liberals is fixed in some fashion from birth with a large amygdala vs a large anterior cingulate cortex respectively. Yet I have always wondered why certain geographical regions of the USA are seemingly locked into intransigent views. Can ...

Re: FirstRateCrowd's EIRA

The concept of capture, be it political, corporate, state, or policy is an extremely powerful force maintaining the status quo of the 1% power. Noam Chomsky gives more credibility to the powerful process as he describes it in the following excerpt from my previous post #7 Under Economic Inequality, ...
