Re: "The Left" and the minority rule in the West

SJWs and cultural marxism are very much realities. They're highly visible on university campuses but also in their influence on corporates and the media, which they supply with personnel. I don't think this is merely a case of the leftish tendencies of some urban metropolises; they're too specific i...

It’s like a parody. The drinking at the end is golden.

Re: AI and the rise of China: this is the New New World

Do you think "hooking up" the brain to a technology like the internet - however it is accomplished - presents some significant risks? In that, for instance, although you may be able to harness the power of such a vast network in retrieving information or communicating with others, it could also beco...

Re: The Externalities of the Democratic System

I'm increasingly convinced that the more intelligent/sinister proponents of such measures are actually aware of the fact that they cause unemplo...
