Comments Off on Charles Stross explains why the children of tomorrow are the NSA’s biggest nightmare.

Source In the 21st century, the US National Security Agency (and other espionage agencies) face a storm of system-wide problems that I haven’t seen anybody talking about. The problems are sociological, and they threaten to undermine the way the Western security state operates. The big government/civil service agencies are old. The NSA’s roots stretch back […]

Comments Off on Taking the Basic Income idea to our policymakers

I am not one of the most pessimistic people when I state that we live in somewhat precarious times. In a recent presentation I did in Croatia I laid out at least seven reasons why we live in a global economic and political order that is at best fragile (and at worst close to a […]

Comments Off on Chelsea Manning

I understand that many decidedly nationalist inclined US Americans (as well as many people of conservative stripe outside the US) don’t like whistle blowers, and these people seem to have an innate dislike of people like Assange, Manning and Snowden. I can only express my sincere appreciation for the great sacrifices these people make. A […]

Comments Off on A Message from Cenk, for you

Khannea — You are never going to believe this one. Recently, The Young Turks put out a video about a member of Congress extorting money from a corporate lobbyists and leaving behind a voicemail as proof. It’s gotten so bad in Washington DC that they no longer even realize the immorality of their corruption. Maybe […]

Comments Off on The vulnerability of the US versus the 911 “debate”

The United States used to have a heroic reputation in Europe (and most of the world) since World War 2. In the old days America, in particular in my youth, was regarded with considerable awe. Progress happened in the United States, and not just technological progress. America signified the vanguard of social progress, freedom, consumer […]

Comments Off on Proactive Genocide

I regard myself as a “Basic Income” advocate. I think that some form of socialized (state nationalized?) income will become necessary. I am of the conviction that in the next few decades there will be such severe technological unemployment that (insofar we retain democracy) the state will be forced by an electorate to “take” resources […]

Comments Off on Is Pain a Functional Necessity?

I have been active in transhumanism for several years and in most cases I find myself in agreement with many preferences, values and assumptions prevalent in Transhumanism. Transhumanism is an ideology of plausibles, arguables and fictionals. In other words – Transhumanists make statements on future developments that can be commonly regarded to be likely, debatable […]

It was well received. It was only half the recording, they ran into the 15 minute limit. I was quite actually tired, my presentation was pushed back 90 minutes. I should have taken a modafinil I suppose.
