The current rules of our economy have encouraged the allocation of gains to consumers and financial shareholders (now including

Will war “happen”?

Do you think that, at this point in history, war falls in the same “pool of possibilities” as the Donald winning, or is it just more populist stirrups that haunt the news? Immigration, a concrete political truth, is the fault of a political elite that, due to their ivory tower isolation, failed to see the

What a misunderstood concept

The “Political Correctness” phrase is the perfect example of good intention ending in disaster. The whirling cascade of bad jokes, inspired by the politically correct approaches (see George Carlin and his hate for PC) show in a crystal clear precision the difficulty of being lucid in a world bathing in confusion. The derogatory way in which

Know thyself, the envy way

If personal laissez faire and Facebook don’t reveal much about who you are: monitor your envy. You are those who you envy. You are the things you envy others for. Everything you envy is something that describes you. And everything you envy is at arms length, its just your actions separating you from those things, the Holly Grails others

Obsession beats talent. Mmm no. Obsession ruins talent. Consistency beats ability. Nope. Consistency shows ability. Constant work beats skill. Not really. In fact: constant work builds skill. Creation beats affirmation. What does this even mean? Paper beats rock (sorry, I couldn’t resist). Yep. #justsaying 😀

Why isn’t govt. better

Because the government doesn’t really ask? Because the Caesar just takes what is Caesar’s? Somehow people don’t feel like they can choose. I can choose the Appstore or the Play Store, I can walk or Uber, I can sell on amazon or not, and the terms are upfront and I can bail out. With government

The day I will become a millionaire

I’ve always wondered about the use of this information. DHH is not the first nor the last, as he himself says, to somehow disseminate this information “through clever or modest-profound” ways. Why do rich people feel the

Disney depression

This is the future. Damn. I know it doesn’t have to be this way, but for now it looks like it. If I’d have a future seeing shaft like the one in Tomorrowland i know I’ll spot John Company through it. We’re living in a pretty schizoid world. We are split between imagination and fantasy

On philosophy

principles are rock, ideas are scissors and reality is paper. Principles are rock. A principle can ruin an idea. In this case self driving cars which by all current stats are a great idea (we all agree that they are way safer for most population than the flaky inattentive humans) can be crushed by the weight
