How to Know What's True: Assessing Scientific Research

How to Know What's True: Assessing Scientific Research

This is the transcript and source guide for my (Matt Berkowitz's) lecture, "How to Know What's True: Assessing Scientific Research" -- the video of which is viewable here:

UPDATE: I did a response talk as well to the various criticisms I received:

BASIC INCOME: A new universal right?

BASIC INCOME: A new universal right?

As a brief intro and due to the first responses on the original Spanish post on my blog I want to clarify that I do think the Universal Basic Income (UBI) is a good idea; however, I think that if we emphasize one single approach, I would not choose this one, and what follows is why. Nevertheless the intention here is to start a dialog on the proposals and how we can expand on them.

The Never-Ending Battle for Truth, Justice and A Natural-Law Economy

The Never-Ending Battle for Truth, Justice and A Natural-Law Economy

Money is a toxic waste to which our entire global civilization is deeply addicted. Money pollutes our relationships, our values, our institutions and our lives. The root cause of most of the major problems facing modern humanity is our monetary addiction. Money is the most addictive substance on the planet and the most deadly.

It isn’t the scope of this essay to be definitive as it would be substantially long. The following presents a basic overview along with select points for consideration.

Owned & Operated (Full Documentary)

Owned & Operated (Full Documentary)

Owned & Operated is a mosaic of the world through the lens of the Internet - showing our lives as consumers, under the thumbs of privileged individuals and their methods of control. But the world is awakening, and the experience is something outside the normal rules of social interaction, causing excitement in those who are not served by the current system ... and fear in those who are pampered by it.
