2 february I am getting my popcorn. I will watch either the US end as a society (and that will be delightful to watch) or I will watch the far right, teaparties and republicans crawl back into their sewers (which will be also a delight). Win every step of the way.
I for one welcome the new secret plans of secret transnational entities to create a permanent and independent colonial presence in HEO or L4 within 5 years. In a few years the first private stuctures in space will be created – shortly after literally dozens of launches will take place. I know Alex Jones will […]
The following is a simple challenge to anyone who assumes there will be radical progress in the near future, and who believes this (probably) will be good. In other words there are some in the technoprogressive community that still, to this very day, suggest that once we have MNT, widespread robotics, nanotechnology, widespread genetic technologies […]
Many of our readers are preparing for what can only be described as the unknown – a whole host of things can go wrong. We know that the economic outlook in America and the world is bleak. The only answer from politicians and economic masterminds who sit behind the curtain is to borrow and spend […]
It was just about this time four years ago that I first noticed the phrase “peak oil”. I don’t recall exactly where, but it had to have been a Jerome a Paris diary. I followed him to The Oil Drum and there I learned just how much trouble we faced. Everything I’ve done since then, […]
Right now, we are witnessing a truly historic collapse of the economy, and yet most Americans do not understand what is going on. One of the biggest reasons why the American people do not understand what is happening to the economy is because our politicians and the mainstream media are not telling the truth. There […]
I call on the EU to collect these taxes: 1 – the difference between wage costs in product that is imported versus wage costs of an equivalent product manufactured locally is unfair competition. I say tax it – and then send half that money back to the workers of China. So if a bike imported […]
No coincidence – I am holding a “white rabbit” brainstorm with a very strong slant suggesting a fundamental crisis of western Democracy – this thursday the club of Amsterdam is holding a meeting where the theme is more or less “Democracy is Dead”. The problem is that this can be argued in both (incompatible) directions, […]
As the U.S. economy collapses, the thin veneer of civilization that we all take for granted is going to begin to disappear. In fact, there are already an increasing number of signs that the collapse of society is accelerating. In cities such as Chicago, roving packs of young people are “mob robbing” local businesses, randomly […]
These are facts. Digital Sky Technologies It a russian company. It is a heavyly exposed investor in the social network Facebook, the social game Zynga and owner of the communicator ICQ. It also invests heavily in the somewhat less palatable Groupon. DST is also heavily involved with Goldman Sachs. And these people came up with […]
Oh … and something different. Let me get this straight. The Netherlands is in the grips of a ‘simpleton rumbling majority government’, the PM is argueing for a type of austerity and established service cost cutting that will without any doubt will costs hundreds if not thousands of people their lives – and the analysis […]
Without getting to alarmist – I foresee catastrophic economic turmoil. Monetary economies are suffering major problems. Without getting bogged down in details – I think this has been caused by several conflicting mechanisms: (i) there is ambiguous global economic growth. This is no longer true as peak-oil and the (alleged) effects of resource depletion, global […]
I have a message to the people if Greece. Walk away from the Euro. Default. Don’t pay any more. Fuck the banks. Let the European central banks crash. They are raping you. Don’t let them, say ‘NO’ and leave. Nationalize all banks, and declare an emergency situation. It will hurt massively, but you will retain […]
There is a pervasive message in popular entertainment that there are saviours outside humanity, above the masses of humanity. These movies depict battles of Good versus Evil forces, and they depict we will all be saved, despite the attempts of Evil to destroy humanity. The most insidious aspect of this popular entertainment is that humans, […]
