The world is a complex system, it's impossible to know all the variables much less how they interact.
Keep this in mind when alarmists (or "experts") spout prophecies of doom like global warming, terrorism, pandemics or anything it requires government intervention to solve it.

“He knows nothing; and he thinks he knows everything. That points clearly to a political career.”

All software can be excluded from bullshit legislation if developers work anonymously and people stop complying with criminals known as politicians.

Don't beg for your rights, if you do they were not yours to begin with. Just disobey!

As regimes around the world are hell-bent on imposing a "show us your papers" society where one must beg their permission just to go out shopping or dancing, resistance is more important than ever. Rise for freedom!

“Tax evasion using crypto assets is a rapidly growing problem. Since the industry is entirely digital, taxpayers can transact with offshore crypto exchanges and wallet providers without leaving the United States”

“Private property protection using is a rapidly growing problem for state thieves. Since the industry is entirely digital, sovereign individuals can make voluntary trades without letting government slavers taking their cut”

"When people are free to pursue goals unfettered by presumed limitations on what they can accomplish, they just may manage some extraordinary feats through the combined application of native talent and hard work"

The limits of what government can do to bring about prosperity in the world is nothing.

This book can be entertaining as Science Fiction, but it's much better because it's based on reality. The building blocks are ready today!

"...floating cities won’t be founded by conquerors but creators."

"State politics is about enforcing our vision of society on others. is about empowering others to create their visions of societies."

@Tutanota Looking forward to see a FOSS AI that tricks these surveillance systems

Face recognition systems use your online pictures for training purposes. These AI systems are much more potent than what surveillance-dystopians like Orwell might have imagined in their worst nightmares. Fortunately, new tools help you to stop facial recognition.

@adamasnemesis I'm torn about the specialist vs generalist path.

After reading the book How To Be Everything, the article Making Knowledge Work Visible (by Tasshin Fogleman), and Naval's How To Get Rich podcast; the generalist path resonated a lot with me due to multiple interests.

But the experiments I did were total failures, perhaps it was my approach, still I'm not sure on this topic. Need to experiment more.

Renan boosted

Masks, like fiat money, are about imposing a standard on people by an authority.

Markets are much better at finding standards that work.

@adamasnemesis I'm reading Joe Quirk/@patrissimo book, it's fascinating, I'm sure you'll love it! 🌊
