    Only thing to do now is to wait and see who benefits the most. Keep in mind the very term "Net Neutrality" is a Label that almost as always has nothing to do with what the Label implies. The Patriot Act had NOTHING to do with Patriotism. Affordable Care Act (health) has nothing to do with making healthcare either affordable or healthy. CISPA (Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act) has nothing to do with Protection. This is applied to damn near EVERY phrase both the MSM and govt throw at us, because it heavily impacts the Perception that the majority of people have of whatever is thrown their way.

    Exactly. All Im referring to is that there is a difference between Natural Scarcity and Artificial Scarcity. Cant print up more gold. But one can cause a shortage in gasoline by limiting the production of oil refineries, which creates an artificial scarcity which drives up prices.

    That is a big part of the problem of our education system itself. The way that children are taught causes a lot of them to become very disinterested in both furthering their education and interest in the world itself. That in and of itself is a whole can of worms, that if we are ever to actually solve any problems, definitely needs to be addressed. The problem isnt with kids, but what causes kids to have the reaction in the first place. Thing is that a lot of people, not just kids, including me, now see college as a huge financial risk, and they are not wrong. In general, people look at the world and what they see is that college prepares them for jobs that do not pay well enough to afford paying back student loans. They see college as something they have to pay for in order to meet arbitrary standards set by employers, that often even a degree can prepare them for. They assume the financial risk in order to become something that does not resonate with who and what they want to be. Would you take out $80k in student loans to become a Debt Collector? How about a Warehouse Worker? Maybe a Walmart employee? Why in the world would anyone look at that as a path to success when a Degree is supposed to qualify a person for a satisfying and stable job? And Im not just talking about getting a degree just for the sake of getting a degree; Im talking about legit skills such as engineer or programmer or scientist, not something like Underwater Basket Weaving. What we have really done is replaced True Learning with Workforce Training. And that is the key difference between Education and Learning. "If education is beaten by workforce training, civilization dies." - CS Lewis

    Microsoft is getting pissy about using any sort of secondary operating system or dual boot systems, so they've been actively removing those choices. Personally, I'd start with a clean hard drive, no windows on it, or even plugged in, period. Go into BIOS (Hit the DEL key as the computer boots) change the Boot Order or Boot Priority then boot it off of your DVD. Its just like installing windows, but for other OS's as well, you'll be given some options to select a hard drive to install Ubuntu to, and will most likely have to format the drive first. From there, it should just be a matter of following prompts to get the OS onto the hard drive and wait for files to copy. After that, the real fun begins as a lot of new hardware is Windows Specific so there may not even be compatible drivers for the hardware in your box. Dont bother trying to do Dual Boot until you know what youre doing. Not sure on UEFI for non windows based systems, Im not that familiar with newer hardware, so anyone care to help out in regards to that...

    Well, the Sugar Industry will come right out and say that High Cholesterol is caused by too much red meat but definitely NOT sugar! NEVER sugar! Sugar doesnt cause inflammation, break down the blood-brain barrier making the brain cells susceptible to insulin spikes, thats caused by not paying out the ass for a good edjumacashun! Sugar doesnt cause diabetes! Nope nope! Wasnt us! Now look at this pretty chart exploiting Simpsons Paradox so everyone genuinely starts to believe that sugar doesnt cause diabetes, or ANY other health problems evarr!

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4ovW86L8K4U&list=PLpq-fVpS7yY-loBGnaUwsglihq5TH4844 (I havent seen this episode yet, but figured might as well start at the beginning) We've probably all seen video compilations of idiots doing stupid things on the road and see them constantly on the roads ourselves. One of the issues with those types of videos is the same thing we say every time we see an idiot driver: "What were they thinking"? So thats something I actually do like about this show so far in that we actually get to see the drivers in action instead of only being able to look at the results of their stupidity. Show is Canadian so Ive never heard of it before. If you havent seen it, enjoy, if youre interested... But, be forewarned, these people are true idiots. Next video is MUCH more interesting since it shows how much of a true idiot people can be. Its the first one of the series I watched...

    Many of the troubles you mention are valid, and exactly what will happen if either Govt or Federal Reserve Bank (or any Central Bank) becomes involved in cryptocurrency. Bitcoin is not necessarily the only cryptocurrency out there. There are several. Another one is Ethereum. If Central Banks ever claim authority over cryptocurrency, you can guarantee that we are all fucked as a result. Other thing is that many people that dont fully understand Bitcoin also dont know of the 21 million limit, so the explanation is more for everyone else.

    I think it is already here... Amazon's 75,000 New Robots Are Your Answer To No Wage Inflation http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-12-11/amazons-75000-new-robots-are-your-answer-no-wage-inflation Amazons main shipping facility is here in my home town, so I meet people that have worked for Amazon all the time. I also see a saturation of job postings for warehouse workers as well. Thing is, most of the warehouse jobs for Amazon are temp jobs that are handled by a Temp Agency so Amazons reputation is protected. These are Temporary Jobs, and not even directly employed by Amazon. Sadly, what this all confirms is that Amazon views the majority of its workforce to be disposable. When robots and drones replace the disposable human workforce, the true state of the economy will become visible. We dont produce anything here any more. A good portion of what we do produce is already handled by machines, and that has the potential to also be fully automated. The robots and drones will be manufactured overseas. Maintenance will be handled by very few people. Then we will truly see how far we have fallen.

    Exactly. Gold is physical so its scarcity is not artificial. Bitcoin is artificial, where the inventor claims that only 21 million bitcoins will ever be generated. That 21 million limit is an artificial limit. It may be mathematical in nature, but it is still artificial. When the time comes, people will flock to other digital currencies due to misconceptions. So yes, I actually do fully agree with you, but Gold is NATURALLY scarce.

    And without the ability to pay that student loan off quickly, then the interest and debt accrue quickly. It only makes the lender even more wealthy in the long run as they never gave out anything they actually had, but profit by handing out nothing and in return, the borrower gets nothing. Round and round we go.

    ... and Degree Inflation means more people have to borrow more money to qualify for jobs they will literally never be hired for. They've shifted the source of money creation (by borrowing into existence) to the people, which makes them Debt Slaves and willing to do what ever it takes to "pay off" those loans. Result is both Intellectual and Financial Slavery.

    Yeah, and that is exactly what happens with Group Think Psychology. Group Think is exactly the intended mindset that has caused those with half a clue as to what is going on in the world to refer to stupid people as "sheeple". Sheeple implies a Herd Think or Group Think, where the nature of the ideas is to propagate to those who do not hold on to those ideas. For Group Think to work, the ideas supported by the Group, and even the very nature of the Group itself must be Viral. A viral idea always has a replication protocol, just like it is the nature of an actual virus to replicate and spread, despite the negative consequences of that virus, be it a cold, flu, or whatever. Group Think is merely evidence of the viral nature of conformity to the ideas of the group. The trouble with Group Think is that the Group itself is not responsible for new ideas. The Group is lead by one individual, or a very small number of people. Those "leaders" present their ideas as being a part of the ideas of that Group. This allows the leaders to use the Group Think as a means of introducing new concepts as being related to the Group so that those ideas are not challenged by many. It works the other way also. If a non member of a group expresses an idea that could be associated with a particular Group, that individual is labeled by others as being a member of that Group. "Let's raise taxes to solve problems" is typically an idea that is held by Democrats, so when an individual expresses that idea, they are almost immediately identified as being a member of that Group, and this can lead to Self Identity as accepting a brand of Democrat. Facebook is nothing more than a huge Group, so almost all Group Think Psychology is applied heavily to all of its individual members. Many or most of the Facebook Group do not want to be a part of that group, and despite their best efforts to not accept the ideas that Zuckerberg sets forth as part of their thinking, the constant exposure to those ideas alter the thinking of those who use Facebook. Emotional Recognition is nothing more than another means by which to cause acceptance of Group Think Psychology. The intent is to cause not only total conformity, but replacement of Self Identity with Group Assigned Identity. You WILL be in a good mood at all times of making someone else money. You will love the restrictions placed upon you by the Leaders of your Groups. You will be shunned and are expected to be sad if you are not accepted into your role of Slave.

Is a Future Revolution Possible Without Privacy?

by DamianTV on 03-11-2013 at 02:16 PM
(This was a post that I slightly edited to make sense by itself. The original post is here.)

Very few people are looking toward the Future when Privacy is Impossible. But if Privacy is completely gone, will a Revolution even be possible?

Google GlASS might be able to record what you do right now as a video, but this will only be the first in a long series of progressively privacy invading advancements. One of them inevitably will be Google Contact Lenses. However,
