Re: FirstRateCrowd's EIRA

The Trump administration's EPA wants to deregulate the oil industry by reducing the number of inspections and repairs of methane leaks at fracking wells guaranteeing an increase in climate change. These actions are a slow form of homicide with the conservative Republicans being the perpetrators; the...

The list is growing and important to remind ourselves of the depth and magnitude of the toxic n...

With today's usage of machine learning and machine teaching, we see an even faster growth in the development artificial intelligence due to self amplification leading to exponential growth.

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

Although it is recognized that new technology creates inequality, it is the wealthy people, not the technology, that actually creates income and economic inequality. Regulatory capture, money in politics, and legalized bribery all contribute to this fact. But do not blame the technology, blame the p...

Re: FirstRateCrowd's EIRA

Political policy undergoes continuous erosion when it comes to correcting economic inequality. Money in politics and regulatory capture (including corporate capture) ensures the wealthy will always comeback into power.

Re: Meditation To Reduce Conservative Republican's Amygdala Response

Giving conservative Republicans a tax incentive to meditate with the goal of making them more liberal and thus reducing economic inequality is not only ingenious but diabolical.

Re: New Age Slavery

If the Chinese Social Credit System can happen in China, it can also happen in the USA given the right authoritarian conditions. Should this happen, I predict the future wealthy elites will strive to maintain control of their power and wealth by manipulating brain structures rather than psychologica...

Re: New Age Slavery{_SUBJECT}{_SUBJECT}{_SUBJECT}{_SUBJECT}{_SUBJECT}{_SUBJECT}

The USA is no longer classified as a "full democracy" and is now rated as a "flawed democracy." We need democracy to support a free and vibrant internet to fight against authoritarian rule and for the Economic Inequality Rating App to flourish. I watched Fareed Zakaria's video below and was shocked ...

Restitution for Donald Trump's fraud and conspiracy

The idea: A constitutional amendment to have the judicial appointments of Donald Trump overturned and to have him and his organization make financial restitution to the citizens of the United States for his fraudulent and conspiratorial activities.
