But without the state, who will fund basic scientific research?

Oh, wait...

FTA: Faith that science will conquer aging is common in Silicon Valley these days. The language Yun uses to explain his dream—especially the use of the word “cure”—makes traditional researchers in the field of aging cringe. But few are complaining about the interest of the big-spending Silicon Valley crowd. In recent years, public institutions like the National Institutes of Health have been slow to commit any more than a token of their overall budgets to aging research. It is the private funders with big dreams who are galvanizing the field.
It’d be easy to miss the unobtrusive brown door to Joon Yun’s second floor office, tucked away next to a dry cleaners and a hair…

One factor explaining politics in 2016
For the first time since 1880, Americans ages 18 to 34 are more likely to be living with their parent(s) than in a household shared with a spouse or partner.

Shock Report: More Americans Killed by Police Since 9/11 than Soldiers Killed in War http://thefreethoughtproject.com/shock-report-americans-killed-police-911-soldiers-killed-war/

It's not really a shock if you've been paying attention, but it does support my contention that these legalized gangs of thugs need to be disbanded.

#PoliceState #CopsAreScum
In the Land of the Free, citizens are killed by public servants at nearly twice the rate of soldiers deployed to war.

If only this seeking of voluntary funding for science would become a new habit of scientists. I wonder what NdGT thinks about such a brutal market judgement by a voluntary public vs the government extracted funding his ilk enjoys.

That's nuts :-)
 
Lol. That's almost tempting, but I wouldn't want it actually used to produce children.

No one should parasitically feed off of others. Period.
 
If it takes $69k to live as well as a welfare queen, then minimum wage should be $30 per hour. Employers should be ashamed to take home a single penny in profit while their workers return home to conditions of economic insecurity and sacrifice.

This article totally ignores the corporate welfare whores who take home tens of millions of dollars every year in tax credits or the banking whores who line up like pigs at the trough for the low interest loans of the Federal Reserve System.

They should have interviewed the owner of Zahn's Corner Industrial Park who got the state of Ohio to give him millions of dollars in Ohio Jobs money all so he could pay 17 people to scrap electronics and ship the raw materials to China. He's the truest welfare queen, and he got his privileges as a thank-you for funding the Kasich Campaign.
First, put down all sharp objects. Now, meet Edith Calzado - maybe the single most successful and productive beneficiary of government assistance you’ll ever meet.

The internet has changed. A lot. Back in the day, you used a whole bunch of tools and websites that you probably left far behind long ago. In many cases, the likes of Netscape Navigator, Hotspot, Excite and AltaVista got dumped by the masses for Chrome and Google. Maybe some of these sites and services […]

Story
Tagline
To be logically valid, rights must be perfectly reciprocal. There is no higher authority than you yourself.
Introduction
Currently, I am a discretionary, private trader.  

Previously, I have worked as a programmer, software engineer, technical project lead, solution architect, enterprise architect and Director of Engineering and Architecture.  My software-related specialties include data structures and algorithms, object oriented analysis and design, meta-programming, Smalltalk, Java, financial trading software, date and time computations, source code versioning and modularization, software components, semantics, ontologies and logic programming.

My other interests include political philosophy (I'm a libertarian market anarchist,) the law, science & technology, business and economics, linguistics and foreign languages (Russian, French, German, Spanish), cultural anthropology, chess, fantasy & science fiction, fine dining, and a relatively wide taste in different genres of music.

Politically, I'm an anarchist. I don't think that any government should exist (where by 'government', I mean a state with a monopoly on making law, enforcing the law and judging how the law applies.)

No, that doesn't mean there should be no rules, just no rulers. Rules should not be made by a monopolist of rule making. Rules should not be enforced by a monopolist of rule enforcement. And whether or not the rules have been followed should not be decided by a monopolist of ultimate decision making -- especially not when those rules are intended to limit or control the monopolist who makes the decisions!
