Re: What is Gravity?

Thanks Hoi. You are right about the wording. Scientific terms are loaded with assumptions. When developing a theory on your own, you basically need your own terminology. And the terminology needs to be very, very precise. For example on Wikipedia there is 6 different definitions in science of the wo...

Re: The State and the Nations

The following horror story about their next plan in the UK should serve to illustrate just how expendable we all are: In the UK the State introduced "tax credits" some years ago to top up the low wages of workers on minimum wage. This has been running for years to the point where workers have now b...

Re: The State and the Nations

What about a society (Nation) that doesn't have much of a need for Accountants & Lawyers etc. Academic minded people therefore gravitate towards the sciences, and you actually have a surplus of Doctors. Then the wages of doctors would be driven down to nothing too(for doing routine medical work). T...

Re: The State and the Nations

Enlightening reading, aa5. Thanks for your posts. First, you're drawing up the whole question in my mind: what are "jobs" even for exactly? Essentially, the idea is that you should trade some of time (the time you would otherwise spend surviving with your group) doing something else that makes your...

Re: What is Gravity?

According to a guy I was reading, if you chop up permanent magnets into smaller magnets of all sorts of varying shapes, and then throw all your little pieces on the ground close to each other, they snap together and twist around, forming something approaching a sphere. The South Pole on one side, No...

Re: The State and the Nations

The Function of the Economy When a drought in a corner of the world can send economic shock-waves across the world, where even making a pencil requires efforts across continents, what meaning remains in the concept of "national economy"? The idea that the economic decisions can be something voted u...

Re: The State and the Nations

The state used to be a relatively small part of Western economies. Fluctuating between 5-10% of the economy until the 20th century. The state was involved with the military, courts, police, prisons, import check points & a few other considerations such as roads and the monetary system. Municipal gov...

Re: V1 and V2 NAZI rockets (WW2): another old hoax?

I imagine around that era of the 1940's that large areas of European cities would have to be demolished and rebuilt, to accommodate the new utilities, streets, and density that would be needed in the new era. My own view of history is an adapting political & social organization to the changing techn...

Re: The Cold War Hoax

I think through media and selective education people are given a false dichotomy. The 'choice' they are given is to be low paid powerless workers for some big monopoly corporation, or low paid powerless drones in some all powerful government. And that the only trifling power they have is to vote for...

Re: The Cold War Hoax

In the early days an organization is the vision of the founder. Over time careerists take over the organization. And once the founder is pushed out or retires, the organization seeks only growth. It doesn't matter if the organization is a church, charity, business or government department - they all...

Re: Population Hoaxes

Good question, from my initial reading my impression was their data comes from the ever reliable African government censuses. I will look into that. Another example, maybe the most egregious, is India's claimed 1,250 million people. India is about the same geographic size as America east of the Miss...
