The #Gift of #Death

There’s nothing they need, nothing they don’t own already, nothing they even want. So you buy them a solar-powered waving queen; a belly button brush; (...) or – and somehow I find this significant – a Scratch Off World wall map.

They seem amusing on the first day of #Christmas, daft on the second, embarrassing on the third. By the twelfth they’re in landfill.

You can be anything in a capitalist society



#capitalism
 
The problem is that the system is currently based on #Usury AKA #Capitalism, which is a form of #Judaism. #Middlemen who extort a piece of the action, but produced Nothing!

But I think #cryptocurrencies like #Bitcoin are changing this. They eliminate the #middleman with #trustless #P2P interactions. "For the times, they are a-changing"..💖😊

#Bitcoin #cryptocurrencies #p2p #trustless #immutability. You are your own #bank, your own #sovereign. Your own #boss. #Freedom

In its pursuit of a seemingly innocuous goal, an #AI could bring about the #extinction of #humanity purely as an unintended side effect.
...
Consider: Who pursues their goals with monomaniacal focus, oblivious to the possibility of negative consequences? Who adopts a scorched-earth approach to increasing market share? This hypothetical strawberry-picking AI does what every tech startup wishes it co

Hello, weird new corner of the internet. Let's triangulate.

Here are some things I like:
#beer
#scifi (mostly rereads lately-- LeGuin, Mieville, Stephenson, Pratchett, Jonathan Rosenbaum)
#boardgames
#philosophy (ask me about my quantum immortality wealth building scheme)
#standup #comedy (comedians that made me laugh this week include Sara Schaefer, Maria Bamford, and Ian Abramson)
#socialism , by which I very broadly mean not #capitalism , because billionaires are a bad idea.

Nearly a quarter of all queries blocked by Pi-hole

Pi-hole, the black hole for internet advertisement, is blocking nearly a quarter of all queries. The tool saves bandwidth as most ads never reach my ad-blocker. I am using #ublock to filter out the rest of the crap and to fight tracking. The internet has become a battle field just like any other place in the world. Thank you, #capitalism!

The #law, in its majestic equality, forbids the rich and the poor alike to sleep under bridges, to beg in the streets, and to steal bread. - Anatole France

The #SiliconValley is supposed to be home to our brightest #minds and the only thing they're envolving is, how to track us even better to shoot us up with unnecessary #advertising? Isn't this a confession of #failure for #humanity?

What is Socialism?

When it is established it must be on a global basis, as a real alternative to the present system. In a socialist society there will be common ownership of the Earth by its inhabitants and no minority will dictate to us that production must give priority to profit. There will be no owners. The people of the world will share the world. Production will be for use, not sale. The only questions we will need to ask about production are what do people need and can these needs be met. Science and technology will at last be used to their fullest potential and in the service of humanity. The basic socialist principle will be that people give according to their abilities and take according to their needs. There will be no buying or selling, as money will have been abolished and will not be necessary in a world of free access. Socialism will mean a world without borders or frontiers, social classes or leaders, slates or governments, force or coercion.
