Gun Control?

While reading the mention of gun control in Cracking the Code, I had a day dream. Suppose that the government moves increasingly towards state-controlled capitalism. Suppose that crime increases in direct proportion to poverty and the social system is in chaos. Suppose that our cities are controlled by gangs of armed thugs, or worse, police militia, crushing all dissent, arresting all dissenters under the NDAA, and of course confiscating weapons. Would you still advocate for gun control?


Hello in There,

Heartfelt THANKS for being the GOOD GUYS!

To The Point: While the SOPA brouha rages on, I have encountered a video that in DETAIL defines who created and PROFITED from the very pirating that is now santimoniously being censured. For whatever reason, I've not seen or heard of it anywhere.

PLEASE take a look at it, and if you deem it useful, promulgate it. It is TELLING and OMINOUS.

battle of ideas

What d'ya think...?

Contra ALEC

Progressives need their own ALEC-like organization. I think we should focus on the initiative process, however, not legislatures. There are enough progressives organized now that we could place petitions on the ballots in most states if we had a systematic way to generate them and to gather signatures using the existing progressive organizations.

Narcissists Step to the Front of the Line, Please!

A Capital Idea Part 101: Narcissists to the Front of the Line, Please!

My first post of 2012 finds me returning to the topic of personality disorders among the wealthy. This time, rather than proposing a new one, I looked at the prevalence of existing ones as diagnosed in business executives. I found considerable information about the topic, including research findings, and a growing interest in this topic as a whole.

Obama’s Immelt has GE bolster weirdo Paul Ryan’s re-election by opening factory in his district.

All cozy and ALEC'y here in Wisconsin, don’t ya know?!

Is anybody else beginning to see why Russ Feingold started a petition after he left the Democratic Party to have Obama's Jeff Immelt removed?

Romney’s Sons: Ready to unleash a Tsunami of Greed in their respective Cabinet positions?

Don't kid yourself, the sons may have perfected the art of looking shallow and vacuous, but by the looks of their hair the apples didn't far fall from the tree and the family tree might just be in reality the Republican ticket.

Barbarism's Lure...

Overpopulation is the central problem facing mankind, a problem that, unless resolved, could spell the end of what we fondly call civilization and could signal the onset of murderous barbarism on a scale that we can scarcely imagine. The humane answer would be to end our species before the worst of the barbarism begins. But it won’t happen.
