Technology is a Tool, Not a Solution

Technology is a Tool, Not a Solution

Human technology today is outstanding--mind-boggling almost beyond comprehension; we have advanced so quickly in such a short space of time that most of us are unaware of our true capabilities.

Good Exists

Good Exists

Everybody agrees that there is too much ‘Bad’ in the world. It’s all over the media. The news seems to be full of bad in one form or another. There are a few happy news reports, but they seem buried under all the muck.

But good is there, it just needs to be fostered. Our mindset is all wrong. Monetary systems foster and nurture all of our negative behaviors and in many cases amplify them.

Getting others on-board the RBE bandwagon

Getting others on-board the RBE bandwagon

Most but not all of these folks fall into an activism category which believe the government needs to be adjusted to meet the needs of certain segments of the population. That generally means the poor or otherwise disenfranchised.

Most of us reading here know that doesn't work. Separating out segments of the population for special treatment by government just means more government, more overhead and generally less success. But how do you explain this to that group of progressives who see RBE ideas as no more than a new label for Libertarianism?

Moving Even More Forward

Moving Even More Forward

I breathed a sigh of relief this afternoon as I realized my first attempt at a blog; "Moving Forward with ‘Moving Forward’ " had been published. Somebody must think I'm on the right track. So now I’d like to expand on some of my ideas and maybe present some new ones...The first one took me a few days to write and I struggled to keep it short and thus readable....

Moving Forward With "Moving Forward"

Moving Forward With "Moving Forward"

At the risk of sounding like "that guy" and promoting ownership, has anybody else considered just buying some land and starting a small scale "Venus Project"?... Hear me out... If you wanted to build a 10,000-acre city then you'd need 10,000 acres of land, wouldn't you? Easier said than done…

The 'Technological Singularity' and the Rise of the Machine

The 'Technological Singularity' and the Rise of the Machine

Few people fail to recognize the incredible progress of technology over the past few decades, in particular computing, but comparatively few reflect on the broader impacts of this trend. Vernon Vinge and Ray Kurzweil have predicted that technological advancement will be happening so fast we will struggle to comprehend it - the technological singularity. But how likely is it, and is it desirable?

The Greatest Addiction Of All

The Greatest Addiction Of All

Many people believe that capitalism is the way to go. It is the end-all of economic systems. It is ideally designed to give everyone a chance to live happily and successfully… the sky’s the limit!

Our forefathers outlined our “inalienable rights” to “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness” in the Declaration of Independence, and had our rights and freedoms laid-out as best they could in our Constitution, including the Bill of Rights. The Declaration of Independence also states that “All men are created equal.”

Zeitgeist and Occupy Wall Street

Zeitgeist and Occupy Wall Street

To All Those in the Zeitgeist Movement,

I write to you as a fellow Zeitgeist member and a member of the Occupy Wall Street Movement. I am here to urge you to join the people who have slept in public parks, taken beatings from the police, provided for the hungry and 99%. There comes a time for us to step up.
