I really do think people will often take action that works against their own interests.

Because a lot of people lack devil's advocates to review whether their beliefs are justified.


BUT it is true that government turns into a monopoly that works against people's interests in itself.

Anarchy can have monopolies, but Noel argued that those monopolies don't last as long as government-backed monopolies.

Funny thing is: Governments form as a result of anarchy. Because the fitest figured out how to deal with everyone else and convinced them to cooperate with this system called "government."

IF basic needs weren't a bargaining chip, government would likely have never formed. Nor would trade.

Since sustainable self-sufficiency isn't entirely possible...
There will never be world peace.
It will always be survival of the fitest.

Survival is sometimes cooperative.
And sometimes combative.

Knowing this is helpful for survival.

Happiness, though: That's generally a byproduct of resource security--lack of combat for resources.

The level of happiness one has is what determines one's willingness to become combative and try to change the world (sometimes ineffectively).

I think self-sufficiency is a major factor in the measure of happiness.
And pursuing self-sufficiency, as societies, is an imperative goal if we all want to stave off unhappiness.

So, the whole deal with me and my website is to speed up the rate of innovation so that the world's pie gets bigger. That way less people have shitty lives and everyone's quality of life goes up.

News always tends to focus on the scary stuff, not the parts that actually matter.

The news that my Google feed is showing me from every website is suddenly super negative today. Weird.

If I can make eating beans very tasty and varied.. look at all the good that can be done:

"if Americans would eat beans instead of beef, the United States would immediately realize approximately 50 to 75 percent of its GHG reduction targets for the year 2020."

Okay.. I'd say that this was cool.... As long as none of my super rich enemies were able to point a camera my way.
This is the stuff from the #future happening today! What you see here is #machineLearning being used to perform super resolution #enhancement of the #image to make the blurry text, readable! #Magic! This is the stuff of #SciFi movies. So what's the catch? Well to do this they need you to be using to cameras that are perfectly aligned, one shooting in black and white, the other in colour. But if you can do that these guys can make scenes from #24 a reality! #JackBower would be proud!
