Was half expecting to see soda images here. Still not sure what this thread is about. See also http://fluoridealert.org/articles/jamacriticsims/ - so are we talking about water here? Maybe lack of more healthy things to drink?

Is there a procedure to merge subs? Could be tidier than leaving them unmaintained...

Did you know the US government paid damages ($100) to the family of Martin Luther King on account of their role in his assassination? by Robin in conspiracy

Yeah, $1 is the traditional amount. So did I, until I looked it up. CBS puts it at $100: https://www.cbsnews.com/news/mlks-family-feels-vindicated/

Reminds me of how Peter Dale Scott's "The War Conspiracy" was allocated 2 ISBN numbers.

"Believing that crises or collapse is imminent when it really isn't would carry less of a penalty..." Not necessarily. It's a stress factor, and can lead to crisis promoting behaviour (e.g. resource wars as people fight over the last few drops of oil, rather than addressing the long term issue)

You mean the de facto scarcity comes from an attitude/expectation of scarcity? Kind of like a self-fulfilling prophecy?

How search engines work is part of it. "Not" is a common 3 letter word, so easily missable in the scheme of things, as opposed to matching on all those other words.

I'd say that the world has always been on the brink of economic crisis. Something to do with lending out money at interest and demanding more back. Ah, but this crisis will be worse, people say. It was ever thus. Upping the ante is part of the rules of the game. "They can't keep creating money for ever", people say, but when asked why not the logic goes hazy.

I avoid such metaphors as "economic collapse" (and it is a metaphor) - too much FUD...

What tactful cropping of that image! For the uncropped "bigger picture" see https://wikispooks.com/wiki/File:Prince_Andrew_Virginia_Roberts_Ghislaine_Maxwell.jpg
