Hey, bold hobby there. Respect despite my disinterest. I agree about the feel of the platform, too. Great to meet you.

It’s fine looking for the company and approval of others in order to validate one’s own perception. But people shouldn’t become a slave to what other people think either. by HibikiBlack in C_S_T

It's almost always in the systems and frameworks, like the Open Space platform leverages both management and individuality better than standard business practices.

If I had USD$10 million, my own career choices would really matter. I've also heard that magnitude is about where quality of life starts to be fine. I'd likely go the Brewster's Millions line of $30 million or higher with your point (which kind of makes me sad - a decade ago $5 million would've been fine).

I also just read baby boomers tend to spend now and won't be giving much inheritance. I actually prefer this because of your point; the money is not, at least so much, with the lazy.

Thanks for the bolstering words, and I understand it's not that simple which is why I expanded on it.

So can you elaborate on an easy economy tempered with overworked people?

The right and left division as a Hegelian Dialectic. Bothering with it is usually a waste of time, what matters when judging a politician are his intentions and actions. by HibikiBlack in C_S_T

[–]philandy 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

So are there good uses for supporting the dialectic? Also, besides intentions and actions, a politician's record, money, cliques, and clout are equally important.

A more recent example of record is Mitt Romney, who claims to be conservative yet has no solid record of anything. A more recent example of money and clique is Hugo Chávez who had everything and lost it all, and ascribed an entire country to fairly strong socialism. A more recent example of clout is Kim Jong Un, while dictating a country considers himself a deity. Obviously, all countries have such examples like China who is rolling out a social clout economy of all things.

On leadership, why does there have to be any today? There's toolings for most anything, and platforms for most anything else. Sure leadership can be useful, however it's being used to a fault.

On a republic, I disagree. Republics don't work; Equity does. Capital "E" because that's what the US Bill of Rights leverages, as in prescient. Why has the US fallen into the trappings of a Republic, laws, when it has the foundations for a full nationwide Chancery Court? Two terms: checks and balances, leading to what equality really is about.

Perhaps the concept of a person in power is broken, as it is up to their whims that things are taken care of.

Seems a bit longer than a shower thought. Of these 13 things, have you had a shower thought about which comes first?

If I were to add to the list, it would be to practice dreaming. I have met no other person that realizes they can willfully day dream on their own, like dreaming is reserved for passive and boring times. I dream more, better, and sleep better, since I started to enjoy and practice dreaming in this way on my own. Also, instead of abusing it like daydreaming during boring meetings, try multitasking with it.

Besides making people lose their ability to focus on the problems of society, I think the elites want people to become addicted to the different distractions present in the media and culture. by HibikiBlack in C_S_T

You mean professional news, not news. Sort of like the difference between professional wrestling and wrestling?

Or what you might mean is, if you've seen or read them...Brave New World first, then 1984 as a backup.

Would it be okay if I broke down your conjecture?

  • How have you seen people lose their ability to focus? I have seen some intend to act then not be able to, on the immediacy level.
  • Who or what would you describe as the elites? And what would your alternative be? I personally would not change the foundations at all, yet, and I'm not happy that successful efforts have been and are being leveraged against what I'm referring to now.
  • What constitutes addiction? I would say it would be using something in a non-controlled way for negative purpose, like drinking ethanol instead of using it as fuel.
  • What constitutes a distraction? I prefer the term veil, as in the tactic. Is this what you meant? A useful alternative is a properly sortable archive and a revision system like git.
  • How are people living more stressful lives? I only see people letting their inner demons, as featured in the movie Click (or on Jerry), run their lives. I wouldn't call that stressful, just foolish.
  • Can you elaborate on how the design promotes working for them? It looks more like a way to kind of skewer people's lives to a razor thin margin. There is an easy solution to this.
  • Hedonism, family, and time management? I'm unsure the scope of this conjecture. My current model is to be able to drop something on a dime if necessary, so lots of prep (not as in prepperism).

"Terrorism" == "Counter-Terrorism"? by Robin in AskSaidIt

No. Further, does terrorism require leadership?

What /s/ should I go do to do more than discuss things? by philandy in AskSaidIt

Do any of your suggestions have a /s/ besides maybe blockchain? Thanks for the outside of the box ideas though!

I intentionally left it broad to get more results, however I did not mean to confuse you. Anyways, a simple example would be the chat feature of any /s/, not that I would expect my request to be limited to that one feature.
