Quote of the Day:

Intelligence is the capacity to receive, decode and transmit information efficiently. Stupidity is blockage of this process at any point. Bigotry, ideologies etc. block the ability to receive; robotic reality-tunnels block the ability to decode or integrate new signals; censorship blocks transmission.

Robert Anton Wilson

  1. Brexit Strategies
    I never had any trouble traveling through Europe in the pre-EU days. What is the real source of the panic?

    The hysteria surrounding the Brexit decision is a study in itself. There are all these articles bewailing the “destruction of wealth” caused by fluctuations in stock prices. So, what! I can certainly sympathize with those British who may be skittish about how the EU is handling their business recently, and particularly the Syrian refugee debacle. I would definitely be concerned about the loss of any semblance of local autonomy if I were a Brit.

    1. well…
      I am surprised that everyone is now surprised by the Brexit people winning.
      Did the governments and the business people not see the possibility coming? Whey are they not prepared for the eventuality? They don’t have plan B in case something goes wrong?

      Also I am surprised by the surprise of England losing to Iceland. Looking at how England has played, did they not see this coming?

      And looking how emotional the voters have been in western countries, of course they will vote for stuff like that.

      It is not that I prefer the alternatives, but I have a sinking feeling that Trump will be president. And that would be much worse than business as usual.

      On the futbol front, I predict that the winner of Italia-Germania will win the tournament. Those teams are serious, and all business now. No emotions, no games. These guys do this to make a living.

        The TTIP was perhaps the straw that broke the camel’s back in the EU. The obvious corporate authoritarianism lurking in such programs scared people as to the true meaning and implications of the Union on down the road. They are right to revolt.

        I had to laugh out loud at the “agnotology” article which was itself agnotological.

        1. right and revol
          I agree that they are right to revolt.

          I don’t agree that the brexit people have a better idea. Nor do they have any idea.

          This reminds me scarily of the 1930s. The established rulers had no idea what they were doing, and their challengers only rode the wave of frustration.

          Will it be that bad this time? Or worse?

          Back then a person could hide in Canada. But now?
