Sea of Vote Buttons

Why you need to vote in EVERY… Single… Election!

Disillusioned with our corrupt government and broken electoral system? Are politics dirty, unconscionable, horrific, and you cannot even stand the thought of watching another candidacy ad or debate? Does the thought of politics make your stomach turn? When a politician speaks do you always expect to see their horribly forked and reptilian tongue? Do you think that politicians don’t really care and don’t represent you? Feel like your vote does not matter… at all!?!

Believe me, I get it. I did not vote for many years and I did not care at all about politics because of thoughts like those… until my 30’s when I really started to care about one issue in particular which sparked a raging fire in me that has not subsided to this day.

Continuum of Capitalism, an Explanation

This post will discuss my set of Continuum of Capitalism infographics which were added to my post: The Cancer of Capitalism and Its Antidote. I want to explain this idea more because, in that post, I just post these two graphics and do not explain it or do I explain my ideas on economic systems at all. Keep in mind, that this post is speaking in very simplified and very broad and sweeping terms. 

If you have NOT read my Cancer of Capitalism post from above, then please go read it NOW!!

Benefits of a Resource Based Economy for Industries and Businesses

In reading, researching, and writing about a Resourced Based Economy (RBE) over the last year my complete view of the how the world is and how it could be has radically changed. This post will cover how businesses and entire industries could be transformed while attempting to make the world a better place by attempting to fix unbridled capitalism towards a more ethical model for businesses.

The end result for manufacturing, businesses, and research is beyond what we would define as businesses or even government, because it transcends these, and eventually requires the end of capitalism and its horrors, so thinking of business in a way that is outside how capitalism defines it can be a difficult feat. If you have not read my previous posts on Resource Based Economies and watched those documentaries then you may want to do that, so that you have the background to understand what I am talking about. Here are links to those posts:

How will a Resource Based Economy work? What will it look like?

So, I had a Facebook conversation this weekend with someone who asked about Resource Based Economy (RBE) and how it would work, specifically asking about creation of products and getting access to resources, so I will spend some time talking about that and more for his and others’ benefit. Now keep in mind there has never been an RBE in the world, so this is all very subjective and just my projection of what it could and should be like. If you have no idea what a Resource Based Economy is then please read my post The Cancer of Capitalism and Its Antidote for an overview and why we NEED to shift to this socio-economic system in order to save our planet… and humanity from extinction.

If you don't stand for the special song, the magical sky-cloth won't freedom

If you don’t stand for the special song, the magical sky-cloth won’t freedom!

If you don’t stand for the special song, the magical sky-cloth won’t freedom!

Pursuant to a not-quite-conversation on Facebook regarding this meme I posted, I will sum up what happened and where I stand on this. It was interesting that this lady, a fellow Bernie supporter and Universal Healthcare supporter, found this meme as a reason to unfollow me even with as much as we have in common politically. =O

11 EU Nations Just Kicked Off a Plan to Make Public Science Free For All of Us

This is a big freaking deal! I cannot tell you how many times I wanted access to a research paper or a doctoral or research thesis and it was hidden behind a freaking pay wall, which pretty much stopped my knowledge inquiry cold! =)

Fortunately, there has been a movement over the last decade or so to set knowledge and research free and there have been various educational institutions which have likewise done so, even in the US. All publicly funded research should be available for all! All research and knowledge should be available for all… period. This is a great step forward! 

Read it and rejoice! This is one of the many reasons why Europe is decades ahead of USA and its arrogance, ignorance, hubris, and faux-ceptionalism!
