Agreed, we used to have an actual progressive tax (meaning the rich are taxed more than the poor) in the 1950s and then it became a flat tax, and now it's a regressive tax after the billionaires and corporations have spent 4 decades massaging and re-working the tax code to their benefit.

http://represent.us has some information on the weirdness of the US laws (and taxes).

In the US the tax has all kinds of rules, designed by rich people, that allow certain tax-deductions for rich people. Especially the ultra-rich. This means that most tax is paid by the lower income people. And often this money is guided to the rich people again.

Often laws are introduced as something that most people agree with, but they are badly worded. These laws are then altered with just a few words to get a complete different meaning. This can be done without much effort and resistance. This makes it possible to introduce weird tax cuts for big companies, or ultra rich people. Or to start wars without any consent.

Good points. I think an interesting measure too would be how homogeneous Earth's field is. There can be lots of conflicting magnetic domains pointing in opposing directions that cancel each other out. But if they all align facing the same way, the field becomes stronger. I imagine this happens sometimes too

[–]x0x7 2 insightful - 2 fun2 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

Interesting. One effect that could happen comes from the fact that Iron has a property called historisis. Basically the Earth maintaining its magnetism is not a zero energy process. Many scientists also suspect that chemical reactions and phase changes inside the Earth are related and I myself suspect the moon's tidal interactions with magma. Either way some amount of energy is coming from somewhere just to give it a little maintenance. It's relevant to what you said because to flip to domains back takes energy when the material has historisis.

Though the flaw with that idea is that the Earth's magnetic field is probably not enough to flip it back so it probably just stays aligned with our magnets until it wears off.

It would be interesting to set up an experiment to see if you can draw energy from a magnetic field from the natural degradation of a piece of iron polarized in opposition to it. The idea is that if you try to push a book shelf and fail at moving it then you don't consume energy. But if I help you move the the bookshelf and it starts to move then you can consume energy. So if the Earth's magnetic field can't realign domains in that iron it does have a direction of will, and if that will is satisfied even if other processes are involved (degradation) it can consume energy.

On average though the magnetic field is getting more aligned with the axis of rotation.

If I had to guess, it would make intuitive sense that this is the reason they are moving at in non-opposite directions and at different speeds. It’s somewhat add that we don’t have a straight forward axis in the first place. But if the poles are going to shift, it would make sense that the axis is related.

Interesting points. It's not AC lines I'm worried about though, it's stuff like MRI machines with 6+ Tesla magnetic fields and superconducting research magnets that are even more powerful.

To make a bar magnet, you put a magnetizing material under an even stronger magnet, and that causes everything to polarize in the same direction and thus have a large-scale magnetism.

I wonder if the very strong magnets we use on the surface of the earth, creates small magnetic domains in the earth in the local area where it's happening. Enough of these magnetic domains will eventually affect the Earth's field as a whole, and the easiest way for Earth's magnetic field to change is to change orientation (as opposed to changing in strength).

So it's possible we're causing the poles to move. I wonder if anyone is investigating this. Seems as least as plausible as anthropogenic climate change...

There's realistically only 3 (maybe 4) possible outcomes:

They reach the the "latitude of no return" (I think it's 40th?) and:

1) Speed up and completely flip,

2) "bounce" off the latitude and start going back, staying in their respective regions,

3) Stop at the latitude and slowly rotate around the latitude axis

Since we have NO clue what caused Earth's angular setting, it's entirely possible these changes are not normal and are residual effects of something that happened long ago (ie: a comet impact, solar flare destabilizing the core, etc). For instance - the Chinese myth of Nuwa and Gong Gong tells of a battle between gods, where one was thrown into a mountain, which caused the earth to tilt, created a huge flood and manifested the seasons. How is it ancient myth lines up with established understanding?

Arthur Koestler once said "myths, like crystals, grow according to their own recursive design - but both require a real basis".

The "mythical" fourth outcome would be something akin to them "dying"... not a good thing, but that would involve the solidification of the core and that just seems a bit... too far fetched, but it's still a logical possibility. (Some have even speculated the sun is far older than we are told - and that it itself could also be, dying.)

Out of the options, only #2 doesn't lead to a whole hell of a lot of problems (mainly regarding EM technology, GPS, probably animals (as they use magnetic fields to navigate, etc) (likely humans too)).

I've been watching this situation for a while now - there's a channel called "Mavstar Observatory" who has been assembling field monitors and shipping them around the world, to get a picture of what's happening.

It's possible. I used to be a physics major. I dropped out and its been many years and so I don't claim to be an expert. What I do know because I was an E&M guy is that the magnetic field doesn't make sense. The conditions alone of rotating molten iron does not make a magnetic field. Science is very interested in explaining the exact reason it exists and it is generally thought one way to close the gap between our understanding and reality is to say it has something to do with response to external magnetic excitement, and then self excitement. Which means the very nature of the field could be impacted by external things like the solar magnetic field, shifts in geography that happen due to Earthquakes, human electrical activity. Even damming up some water like the 3 gorges damn could do something. It could be that the field is naturally an unstable self-interacting system that has found a rare point of stability and that changing the magnetic permeability of any large area on the surface could change the field shape and cause it to self interact in a less stable way, kicking it out of its stable state, until it finds a new stable state. But any natural geographic event could do the same.

We can see from the magnetic history it is a semi-stable system that can be kicked into instability. In such a system even the variances within the stable state can kick something into motion on their own either scholastically or periodically.

But yeah, we probably shouldn't do anything that changes the field shape if we know it's unstable and know historically that the field weakens after it starts moving a ton. But honestly I would think dams or the sun would have more effect than running AC lines.

They are also not moving in opposite directions as one would expect. Both are going north.

Ah true good observation.

In addition to your questions, I wonder if man-made magnetic fields are influencing the direction of the earth's net magnetic field over time

They are also not moving in opposite directions as one would expect. Both are going north. If you had a north pole significantly further down and it went northward and the south pole stayed opposite to it you would expect it to go southward.

It's almost reasonable that the south pole is slowing down because it couldn't keep that behavior up forever. I wonder if there is any concept of a magnetic center, because if there is it has shifted northward.

On average though the magnetic field is getting more aligned with the axis of rotation.

Maybe if there were a fixed angle between them it could be reasonable for the whole thing to rotate northward, but maybe the effect that generally aligns it with rotation is making the south pole more hesitant.

Just for perspective...

The Ash Wednesday bushfires were a series of fires that tore through south-eastern Australia on 16 February, 1983. On a hot, unrelenting dry day more than 180 fires caused widespread destruction across South Australia and Victoria in just twelve hours. In Victoria, 47 people died and in South Australia, 28 died.

The trees excrete highly flammable oils, the natural cycle of the bush is to burn. The trouble is that we get in the way.

I don't have the specifics, but some IQ tests test similarities and vocabulary, testing those things outside the same linguistic and cultural population for comparison purposes (which IQ is about) makes no sense.

When tested across a population (Turkish in this case) and the average doesn't come as 100% it's a red flag.

So, I went full detective mode, because there was something I suspected.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turkish_Kurdistan

The part where the IQ is "the lowest" corresponds to Kurdistan where:

There has been significant conflict in Turkey over the Kurdish populations' linguistic rights. At various points in its history Turkey has enacted laws prohibiting the use of Kurdish in schools.[19]

In 2014, several Kurdish NGOs and two Kurdish political parties supported a boycott of schools in Northern Kurdistan to promote the right to education in the Kurdish language in all subjects. While Kurdish identity has become more acceptable in Turkish society, the Turkish government has only allowed the Kurdish language to be offered as an elective in schools. The government has refused to honor other demands. In several southeastern cities, Kurds have established private schools to teach classes in Kurdish but the police have been closing down these private schools.[20]

So, that pic is comparing (top right) "Edirne is the capital of the province, notable for serving as the third capital of the Ottoman Empire from 1363 to 1453." to a place where Turkish is possibly a second language (bot right). I wouldn't expect coherent results...

Wait, no 100 or above? That doesn't seem right...

The average for IQ is supposed to be 100.

When current IQ tests were developed, the median raw score of the norming sample is defined as IQ 100 and scores each standard deviation (SD) up or down are defined as 15 IQ points greater or less,[3] although this was not always so historically. By this definition, approximately two-thirds of the population scores are between IQ 85 and IQ 115. About 2.5 percent of the population scores above 130, and 2.5 percent below 70.[4][5]

Being 'tough', having a death wish, alcoholism, macho behavior seems to be ways to cope with the harsh realities of Mother Russia.

Yeah it's probably both, that's a good point. But Norway has a harsh environment too and they have nowhere near the rates of alcoholism, suicide, and dangerous activities that we see men commonly do in Russia. So I think the "disposable tool" hypothesis and the dejection explains the data the best, imo

Maybe. I never thought about it from this perspective. I always thought that the harsh environment left a mark on it's people.

It seems trite to say but societies need balance. Just look for the spots of greatest imbalance and those are the spots of near-term strife and discord.

Listen to the music of nature, not the words of the press.

Men tend to die earlier and Russian/Eastern European men are not known for their healthy life choices.

Maybe because they're viewed as disposable tools of the state?

The keyword is agriculture- There are /were many peoples that are practicing exogamy marriages for both gender. You'd either gain a daughter in law or a son in law.

Most agriculture based societies or beyond that stage (introduction to Property and inheritance laws along patrilineal lines) favor male offspring.

A fun (and good to know) fact, the most egalitarian and equal for both genders societies are those without the Western notion of property and those were women contribute at least half if not more to the daily subsistence struggle. The infanticide of females is unheard of in those cultures-You don't kill the mouth that will later feed you. Our ancestors used to live like this before they settled (going from Nomad to farmer) and introduced property (land, animals, houses..), and it went downhill since then. Suddenly it was important to gate-keep womens sexuality and ensure the right bloodline will inherit those possessions.

Agri cultural societies don't have the egalitarian structures of hunter and gatherer societies were women contribute to most of the daily subsistence. Forget about the myth of the successful hunter, Stoneage hunter that brings back home a slap of meat every single day to his family. In reality most hunts are not successful, dangerous and could take up days and they'd rely on the female gatherer who would hunt small game, fishing and bring back roots, mushrooms and plants to secure their everyday survival. Those societies often practiced exogamy marriages-exchanges whereas the male (as often as females) moved to or was already living with his parents in law. If the male is successful in his hunt (not frequently or often-don't let Hollywood or the media fool you! Try hunting big game with only a spear or an arrow and bow) he is obliged to give part of his loot to his Chief, parents, in laws, the other hunters he's owing a favor when he was broke etc. There's not much left for his family to feed, except for his gatherer woman who would provide them with most of their necessarily calorie intake to survive. Hunters only provided 'extras' on top of basic needs.

Every society that settled down (agriculture) and introduced property is inherently not egalitarian and sexist in favor of men who would control women (their bloodline) in order to secure that only their offspring will inherit the 'properties' they have amassed.

Tl:dr -Western notions of Property are linked to female infanticide -Our ancestors/some societies not too long ago valued females because they would contribute to more than half of the daily subsistence for a humans to survive (Marvin Harris, I think, went into the diet of Hunter and Gatherers), and compared them to modern people. -Mode of development is linked to Property, Equality between the genders, sex

Russia's last 'great war' with millions of male causalities was in the 1940's. Every effect on the male population is balanced out since then.

Men tend to die earlier and Russian/Eastern European men are not known for their healthy life choices.

Yes, China with the one child policy has always been the big news story on this topic. But too many males and not enough females has long been one of the key factors in both Pakistan and India’s internal (and sometimes external) strife.

This is a really old theory you are espousing.

I don't see much red on this map. Which countries is it that you think apparently practice female infanticide?

Men statistically die younger and more often so most countries should naturally have a bent toward female populations, a fact borne out by this map.

A lot of mostly agricultural countries practice(d) infanticide on female babies because women tend to marry and leave home. Men marry too, of course, but they tend to stay home or nearby and take care of the old folks. So female babies are/were seen as a burden on the family. Then there is often the additional problem of raising her dowry. Some days I sound so pedantic.

He's not a true Christian. Though lack of god and lack of helpful religious morale can slowly deteriorate the soul of a society. Radical atheistic communism is one of many terrible ideas.

Good Christians do not kill, teh Catholic Chuurch is fileld with Satanists, apostates and criminals, who pretend to be Christians, same with othe rChristian denominations.

It seems in the US, the real criminals are those who lack the principles of how Jesus said to live. To help those less fortunate, and to do everything in your power to teach those who lack good spirit.

That's the point of the scandals. They are distractions meant to create divisions. If there was something that Obama protected, Trump has been sure to try to tear it down.

Everybody is throwing a party saying that this is the best economy ever and yet those same people are deliberately not looking at the deficit, that by now plummets right through hell, to places here to fore previously unexplored.

Wall street is doing fine, the stock maret is in a bubble but surely it will come crashing down, and Trump taking credit for it, only serves to discredit patriotism, conservatism even true liberalism which nobody in congress, nor any president serves anymore. The right is filled with alt-right National Bolsheviks, Chabad-Lubavitchers, and neoconservatives (neotrotskyites), the left is just crony neoliberalism.
