Like I said - I LOVE IT - and the message should go PANDEMIC ( No I am not gonna turn off the bloody caps lock - as for 1 the caps lock is not on - and for 2 - I am only stating the comment as it is illustrated in your post )

Nice idealism, but let's be realistic, answering this question: Not everyone can work, due to health or circumstances, and there simply aren't jobs available for all who need one. What should we do about them? 30+ years of calling for job creation as our sole response to poverty hasn't achieved a whole lot.

[-] 1 points by grapes (5232) 10 years ago

The U.S. did create personal-service jobs in the 30+ years. They include: nose jobs in Hollywood, hand jobs in New York, snow jobs in the South, and blow jobs in the White House.

It seems that the jobs in New York may be threatened by Japanese robots. This is reminescent of the invasion of the Japanese autos.

The jobs follow the illustrated pattern above of the rich and powerful creating "trickled-down" jobs.

if you want a lot of centralized control

you hire people that hire other people That hire other people

ofcourse that kind kind of control means you distribute from the center

There is nothing to stop the intermediate people to hire laterally to form a web instead.

the buck stops here is the important bit of centralized control

all profits are put at the top and distributed from there

I'm simply blown away by the response to our new 3-minute short film. It's a powerful story that has inspired thousands of people to join our movement and hundreds more to volunteer locally and get more involved.

The video is short, but its impact will be enormous if you watch and share it with friends and family.

Will you ask just 3 friends to watch and share it? If you do, it could be the spark that ignites our movement.

The momentum is undeniable. From conservatives to liberals, New Hampshire to California, our movement is taking root and growing. If you can volunteer some of your time, or have a few bucks you can donate to help us keep up the fight, we’d be so grateful.

Thank you for all that you do.

That was a very powerful clip, Thanks.

It really should open quite a few eyes - another PANDEMIC WORTHY MESSAGE.

Love It - let us see that comment go Pandemic

An agreed axiom and a brilliant, bolshy & beautiful ; clever, clear & concise ; direct, descriptive & digestible - li'l public postcard from the edge of ''The Desert Of The Real'' !!!

A ''Situationist'' clarion call re.''The Society Of Spectacle'' if ever there was one !!

#TRUTH like in the image above is why we need ''The Revolution Of Every Day Life'' !

Education echoes eternally & young people can, do & must - realise that their Fuktup Fascist Future, awaits - unless they disregard and reject the crap conservatism and crass capitalism of their parents' (de)generation.

It would be nice to see something like a democratically-rooted people's party, but this can't happen in the US today. We know this because the proverbial "masses," the poor and middle class, have been deeply pitted against each other. The media marketed to libs has been all about, only about the middle class, those with incomes roughly in the $50k range. These are the people who decided that those trying to get back on their feet, in a country that has shipped out a massive portion of our working class jobs, are undeserving of food and shelter. I don't see how we can break through this wall.

[-] 1 points by grapes (5232) 10 years ago

Quantum tunneling is the answer. De Broglie's relation says that the probability of ending up on the other side of the wall increases with decreasing momentum. This transition probability is negligibly small for the masses but is possible for individuals.

The only way that I see non-infinitesimal transition probability for the masses is for a Bose-Einstein condensate to form. That requires extremely cold temperatures for the masses.

[-] 1 points by shoozTroll (17632) 10 years ago

Quantum refrigerators for the masses are a long way off.

It's pretty new tech.

[-] 2 points by grapes (5232) 10 years ago

This website is the "pretty new tech" for refrigerating "trolls" to grow the proportion of the Bose-Einstein condensate. All great religions seek understanding through silence and meditation. When nearly everything "freezes," all kinds of transitions become likelier.

[-] 2 points by grapes (5232) 10 years ago

Unfortunately, the classical route is through the path being blazed by the peoples of Ukraine and Thailand. We can break through this wall through fire or ice but ice minimizes collateral damages and conforms to Love better.

[-] 1 points by shoozTroll (17632) 10 years ago

Then you are planning to go there and become the refrigerator?

A World changing, refrigerator?

Can I watch?

BTW, quantum refrigeration is a recent development. Quite real.

There is NO need to go anywhere according to the Big Bang theory of Cosmology. I am the center of the universe, so are you, and he, and she, and it, the squirrel, the acorn, the tree, and every single point in the universe.

You may watch. It is free admission.

Corollary of the Big Bang theory: Everyone is World changing so I am World changing.

[-] 1 points by shoozTroll (17632) 10 years ago

there is no center.

That's the ultimate conundrum.

If you believe there is?

Point in that direction.

we are but a manifestation of the multiverse.

[-] 3 points by grapes (5232) 10 years ago

You are right. There is NO center. You are far smarter than I thought! It is also true of what I said. The two statements, "There is no center," and "There is center everywhere," are NOT contradictory but I have to talk of center when people believe that there IS a center.

I point anywhere and that IS the center. I point anywhere else and that is ALSO a center because all came from the center.

The basis of much mathematics is set theory. A set is not contained in another set if their intersection is the empty set. The empty set IS contained in every set so it is in that "another set." The intersection of the empty set with that "another set" is the empty set so the empty set is NOT contained in that "another set." Didn't we just say that the empty set IS contained? Contradiction is built into mathematics for the empty set but we are NOT bothered by it at all. We simply outlaw that case.

The conundrum does not "hold any water."

[-] 1 points by shoozTroll (17632) 10 years ago

Was that a "set" up?

Or just further distraction?

On the subject of the OP.


[-] 2 points by grapes (5232) 10 years ago

No, the center of the universe = empty set -- so it is nowhere, anywhere, and everywhere. You had found it before. You are it. You will find it. You did not know where it was but you did know, didn't you? There is no ""set" up". Look up the history of the luminiferous ether and how scientists tried to find it. There is no conundrum.
