The entire culture of the West has slowed down so to speak.  We're in a down part of the cultural cycle as we prepare to enter a crises period.  Think about the difference between 2015 and 2005, and compare it to the difference between 1965 and 1975.  How many changes in style and music occurred in the earlier time period?  Several, it could be argued.  Contrasted with the later time period which seems to be nearly uniform.

Music today is based on very little innovation.  Ten years ago there was this mix of genres presenting itself as something new.  Today however we seem to have lost even that.  Perhaps it it because the younger people that generally start such trends are conformists by nature and lack the creativity, thanks to the effects of corporate/plutocratic/marxist culture finally reaching their peak dominance of the public.

+andyd568 ... what you're articulating seems a bit misleading to me. The "field of AI" is a bit of a misnomer - there is no such thing as AI yet, so the "field of AI" is more in search of it than expert with it. To that point, what you're describing as "not much more than using advanced math at high speed for pattern matching in a very defined problem space" is not actually AI, but merely our best attempts at approximating it, so far.AI will never be realized by simply engorging simple logic processing with immense hardware power. The key to AI (if at all possible) will be in software, the likes of which hasn't been conceived yet. Its quite possible that we have all the hardware power needed already - our conceptions in software are still infantile.

The comparison was my own from Jews being known for being merchants and bankers.  If that's antisemitic in your book then I don't know what to say to that.  It was a stereotype comparison(and was addressed to someone else that was doing the same thing with all the other alien races on the show) and nothing more on my part.  But, whether they were Jewish or Yankee or Greek or Dutch, they were portrayed as being not good people and that is totally on Roddenberry for that.

Have not been able to enjoy the new films for a host of continuity errors that drive me nuts. But, I appreciate summing up the film this way. As a disabled vet, I bet I would have felt weird in a theater with a fake sci-fi veterans memorial. Not sure about Abrams' Federation, but all the TV series, including the cartoon, had mining companies, traders, and all sorts of business tooling in the galaxy.

Friedrich Nietzsche: Was He Really A Philosopher?

I suggest the first chapter from "Twilight of the Idols" by Nietzsche called  "The Problem With Socrates".  This is where Nietzsche partly criticizes logic and rationality, NOT because Nietzsche opposes logic and rationality themselves, but because Nietzsche sees logic as constantly being wielded by the illogical and irrational.  Stefan will, at least once a show, feed false premises into his logical lines of reasoning and get a seemingly logical conclusion.   And lets not kid ourselves, Stefan Molynuex is probably a genius, but even geniuses are human, and humans are psychological.  Now can I reasonably call Stefan a sophist? I agree with him when I find him talking about human ethics and the political consequences of ethics, but when he makes videos about "Existence" and "Is Nietzsche really a philosopher (and Rand is!!!!)", I see him making the worse argument appear the better, and that is part of his own (Socrates) definition of sophism.

I am the host of Freedomain Radio, the largest and most popular philosophy show on the web – http://www.freedomainradio.com
Introduction
Stefan Molyneux is the founder and host of Freedomain Radio, the largest and most popular philosophical show in the world. With more than 2,500 podcasts, 10 books and 50 million downloads, Stefan has spread the cause of liberty and philosophy to listeners throughout the world.

As the host of Freedomain Radio, Stefan has interviewed experts Dr. Nathaniel Branden, Jeffery Tucker, Dr. Warren Farrell, Janet Heimlich, Peter Schiff, Dr. Peter Boghossian, Dr. Mary J. Ruwart, Stephan Kinsella, Lloyd deMause, Dr. Cordelia Fine and many others.

Prior to launching Freedomain Radio, Stefan built a thriving career as a software entrepreneur and executive. In 2006, he left his work in the tech industry to devote his efforts to Freedomain Radio. Now a self-identified full-time parent and philosopher, Stefan speaks regularly at liberty-themed events all over North and South America. His speeches cover subjects ranging from politics, philosophy, science, atheism and economics to relationships, parenting and how to achieve real freedom in your life.

Stefan is the author of two novels, “Revolutions” and “The God of Atheists,” as well as eight non-fiction books on relationships, government and religion.

Past live appearances include presentations at the New Hampshire Liberty Forum, the Porcupine Freedom Festival, Libertopia, Students For Liberty, FreedomFest, LibertyNow, Capitalism and Morality, LibertyFest West, the Brazilian Mises Institute’s Idieas em Movimento, Freedom Summit, and the Global Escape Hatch.

Stefan has participated in a number of live debates, among them: “The Function of the State in Society” with Professor Vladimir Safatle, “How Much Government is Necessary?” with Michael Badnarik, “The Role of the State in a Civil Society” with Sam Seder, “Conservatism vs. Anarchism” with Jake Diliberto, “Should Libertarians Abandon Politics?” with Ernest Hancock and “Atheism vs. Agnosticism” on Free Talk Live.

In addition to hosting his own regular show, Stefan has been a guest on radio and television programs such as RT America’s “Breaking the Set” with Abby Martin, “Adam vs. The Man” with Adam Kokesh, and “The Keiser Report” with Max Keiser.
