Automation: A Luddite’s Dystopia and the Future of Work

pexels cottonbro 5532675

Andrew Yang ran his presidential campaign on the promise of providing American citizens with a monthly stipend to counter the effects of job loss. According to Yang, “up to 30% of jobs are at risk of automation.” The fear of the impact of new technologies is nothing new. The nineteenth century had its Luddites, a group of workers that took to smashing early industrial looms and other machinery in which they saw a threat to manual labor jobs. Technophobia is a retrograde and reactionary idea that continues to be popular, and as history shows, it is not justified. It is easy to imagine the...

Forever Soldiers To Fight Forever Wars

2021 07 13 08 09

The U.S. military says it is months away from launching clinical trials of a pill designed to block or reduce many degenerative effects of aging—an oral treatment that a leading researcher in the field says is better than nothing while questioning how effective it will ultimately prove. U.S. Special Operations Command (SOCOM)—which develops and employs Special Operations Forces worldwide to advance U.S. policies and objectives—has “completed preclinical safety and dosing studies in anticipation of follow-on performance testing” of a first-in-class nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide,...

SWAT Destroys Innocent Woman’s Home, Sends Her the Bill

swat team

In July of last year, Vicki Baker, 75, was excited to move on to the next chapter of her life in Montana by selling her home she owned for 12 years in McKinney, Texas. That sale would never take place on schedule, however, because the day before she was supposed to close, a SWAT team destroyed it. Baker was out of town on July 25 of last year but her daughter was home when a distraught construction worker — who had worked on the home before — decided to invade the home. Wesley Little, 50, had holed up in the home along with a 15-year-old girl he had abducted. When he came in the home,...

Prepare for Negative Interest Rates

pexels pixabay 209224

Negative rates are the destruction of money, an economic aberration based on the mistakes of many central banks and some of their economists, who all start from a wrong diagnosis: the idea that economic agents do not take more credit or invest more because they choose to save too much and therefore saving must be penalized to stimulate the economy. Excuse the bluntness, but it is a ludicrous idea. Inflation and growth are not low due to excess savings, but because of excess debt, which perpetuates overcapacity with low rates and high liquidity and zombifies the economy by subsidizing the...

If You Care About Ashli Babbitt, You Should Care About George Floyd

Ashli Babbitt

As she breached multiple doors in the U.S. Capitol, while accompanied by dozens of other rioters, Ashli Babbitt’s last moments alive were spent attempting to break into a heavily barricaded area, climbing through a window before being shot in the chest by a police officer. Though she was breaking the law, she was unarmed when she was killed. Babbitt was a wife and a veteran and despite her royally screwed up mistakes and disregard for the law on January 6, her life mattered. That is undeniable. Sadly, however, her death is being used to further stoke divide between the left and the right....

Benefits From Trump’s BS

Trump is trying to pretend the mail-in ballots are somehow a big fraud. No, they're just Democrat-leaning. Maybe telling all his people that mail-in ballots are such a fraud for all these months backfired? Now they're cutting hard for the Democrats. But if Biden wins, at least that means that, according to Nick "Let's Invade Everywhere" Kristoff, “If Biden wins after this poisoning of the chalice, he will inherit a badly divided country after an election that many will deem illegitimate, and it will be harder to govern and more difficult for the United States to exert influence around the...

How Trump’s China Trade War Failed

President Trump was elected on an anti-trade agenda in 2016, and promised that tariffs and protectionist measures could restore the US manufacturing sector. After winning the White House, the president imposed tariffs on hundreds of billions of dollars worth of Chinese goods meant to discourage imports in pursuit of this goal. He has described himself as a “tariff man” and said that “trade wars are good and easy to win.” How is this rhetoric holding up? Well, a new Wall Street Journal data analysis sheds light on the trade war’s results so far. They aren’t pretty. “President Trump’s trade...

ATIXA: Willful Non-Compliance With Title IX?

Pexels June 1767434

Just because a law is passed does not mean it is enacted. Implementation requires a bureaucracy willing to carry out the law rather than obstruct it. A new Title IX regulation was published on May 6; this section of the Education Amendments Act of 1972 prohibits schools that receive federal financial assistance from discriminating against students on the basis of sex. The new regulation was meant to bring transparency to sexual misconduct hearings and due process to those who are accused of misconduct. To most people, these seem to be worthy goals. The new rules have been subjected to...

I’m Sorry, But Most Don’t Have Access to Private Protection Services

Many may not want to hear this but if local or state police in certain cities aren't willing to protect life and private property (I know, I know, my first podcast episode detailed Warren vs. District of Columbia), they will beg for Trump to send in federal forces and this will open the door for even more overreach or even a federal police force. Some may ask whether that's Constitutional. At this point, does it matter to the power elite? And can you blame the average citizen? They have been thrust into a situation where not only can their possessions and wealth be destroyed, but their...
