Buying the Government; Net Neutrality and a New Paradigm

December 16, 2017

Congress took 101 million in donations from the Internet Service Providers or ISP industry. How much did your lawmaker get? Find out here.

Who will control the government, people or corporations . No person wanted to get rid of net neutrality, only corporations. Why is the government of the people turning it’s back on the people who have spoken?

This bares repeating:

Till Mickey Mouse is in the Public Domain, corporations control the government. Disney tells the government to jump and the government says how high Mickey?

We have three political parties, the Republican Corporate Party, the Democratic Corporate Party, and all the rest of us that don’t have lobbyists.

The paradigm is shifting from conservative versus liberal to corporations versus people.

Day after day it’s becoming more and more clear The paradigm is shifting from conservative versus liberal to corporations versus people and democracy. Both are fighting for control of the government. Corporations usually win.

Must Make Profits at All Costs !!!

December 12, 2017

Corporations Don’t Have to Maximize Profits / NYT article.

These five quotes are from Lynn Stout, professor of corporate and business law at Cornell Law School. Updated April 16, 2015, 6:46 AM

There is a common belief that corporate directors have a legal duty to maximize corporate profits and “shareholder value” — even if this means skirting ethical rules, damaging the environment or harming employees. But this belief is utterly false …

Serving shareholders’ “best interests” is not the same thing as either maximizing profits, or maximizing shareholder value. …

The business judgment rule gives directors protection from judicial second-guessing about how to best serve their companies and shareholders….

… the business judgment rule gives directors nearly absolute protection from judicial second-guessing about how to best serve the company and its shareholders…

In other words, it is activist hedge funds and modern executive compensation practices — not corporate law — that drive so many of today’s public companies to myopically focus on short-term earnings; cut back on investment and innovation; mistreat their employees, customers and communities; and indulge in reckless, irresponsible and environmentally destructive behaviors.

Why Does All the Music Sound Alike

December 12, 2017

Take an electronic keyboard, drum machine, and auto tune, and …

This video by Pop Theory, by Roomie spells out why the music is so generic (and deserving of a music revolution against the 3 CEOs that run 80% of it – no women allowed BTW) This is insightful and spot on. Take a look.

Holding Genes Passes Genes

December 8, 2017

Holding Genes, Passes Genes!

This article, “Holding Infants – or not – can leave traces on their genes,” supports an idea I’ve had called “Carrying the Baby.”

My sci-fi novel, “Writings in Science a History of the Future” suggests that a key reason for the development of humans brains are ‘carrying the baby.”

First humans (hominids) walked upright. This led to their hands free – not only for war (most scientists are men) – but for carrying the baby.

This led to a stronger mother child bond, that I suggest supported everything from language development, to human intelligence.

Read the article, then read my sci-fi novel, perhaps the biggest ever written. Now available at all major streaming book sites.

Want to Go To Mars?

December 8, 2017

Want to go to Mars?

Yes, everyone would be excited about a manned mission to Mars,
Yes, I love science, and have even written a huge sci-fi novel* that is a history of the future that features colonies on Mars. Yes, that would be great but first ….

The science community has to find some solutions for problems here on Earth. Solutions that end poverty,get clean food and water in abundance for all, end major diseases, devise low cost power, and combat global warming,

THEN, everyone will be on your side and behind you. Then everyone will cheer when the first rocket sails for the Red Planet, lands and returns.

First things first. Then go with the world’s blessings!
