“..our heart exploits our mind to justify what the heart wants. That is, our deepest desires precede the rational functioning of our minds and incline the mind to perceive and think in a way that will make the desires look right. It is an illusion to think that our hearts are neutral and incline in accordance with cool, rational observation of truth. On the contrary, we feel powerful desires or fears in our hearts, and then our minds bend reality to justify the desires and fears."

An excerpt from "Taste and See" by John Piper.

On the blog.. The exploitation of your mind. You may be surprised who’s doing it.

Interesting idea.

If you burn your country's flag, it is an expression of hatred for you Country.

That being the case why should the Country give money to those who hate it just because they happen to live there?

I'd go one step further if people burn their Country's flag maybe they are saying they don't want to be citizens there anymore.  

The State should oblige and revoke their citizenship too, they are then free to emigrate to a Country of their preference like North Korea or ISIS held territory as examples.  

I mention North Korea and ISIS because I do sometimes get the impression from some of the people I'm connected to on G+ and FB that they actually think they are under more oppression in a Country like the UK or USA in some respects. 
 
This is about the stupidest meme you will find.  The Supreme Court has concluded several times  that flag burning is "speech".   Free speech means all speech - not just the speech that you happen to agree with. Our country was founded on this principle. So get over it.

John Piper at the protest against Planned Parenthood (the organisation that massacres God knows how many children a month).

John Piper: “This morning I was one of several thousand people who gathered in St. Paul, Minnesota, to say to Planned Parenthood that killing children is not an acceptable response to crisis pregnancies. And to say to our government that killing children should not be funded by tax dollars.”

A fascinating article about the digital camera, Kodak, and patents.

In 1975 a young engineer called Steve Sasson developed the prototype digital camera.  Kodak his employer wasn't impressed so sat on it for the the best part of 2 decades.

However the company did patent his work, and so enjoyed the royalties far over and above what they paid for the research and development. Once the patents thankfully expired in 2007, it could no longer continue its rent seeking behaviour and impede further digital camera innovation. Kodak filled for bankruptcy at the turn of the decade several years later.

So what do we learn from this little walk down memory lane?  Established companies often don't get new ideas and can be resistant to change.  Secondly and more damaging is Intellectual Property such as patents that far from encouraging innovation actually stifle it and this history is classic example of that.

What's the solution? Ideally patents should be abolished worldwide. Or as a second best and slightly more clunky answer would be to tax the economic rent patent holding, and hoarding companies reap.

In 1975, 26-year old Kodak engineer Steve Sasson presented his prototype digital camera to the company’s technical, marketing and business development departments. The latter two hated it.

I've the above three times now for getting my eyes checked up and two times for a new pair of glasses. The check ups were very thorough and seem to be very professional (I say seem because I'm not an expert reviewer). The two pairs of glasses were good, I baulked at the third pair but that was down to my subjective opinion rather than any failing on their part.
