I bear witness of protests in Washington. There is something changing in this place. Have a listen to how it works in this excuse for a country.

The proof of the pudding is in your face. It must take a lot of money to bribe people to ignore, or media to confuse everyone else that the US is simply failing by any objective standard.
I have been a US critic for quite some time now. My criticism is quite widely scattered, but it centers mainly on the idea that a state (or society) must care for all even if this demands a sacrifice from those better off, and at best can demand from those it helps that they curtail […]

In terms you’d know that means an economical and ecological management (sound decision making rather than “politics”) based on what we have […]
*WARNING* not a bomb hoaxxx *WARNING* not a bomb hoaxxx The international people’s front of Hope and Ambition claim responsibility for this irreversibly ruthless strike against the forces of Apathy and Dolor.

Pilfered from here… Technological Transcendence: An Interview with Giulio Prisco By: Ben Goertzel Published: February 8, 2011 A character in Ken MacLeod’s 1998 novel The Cassini Division refers to the Singularity as “the Rapture for nerds” (though it should be duly noted that in that novel the Singularity occurs anyway!).
