However, once he unleashes DMSI 3.1 fury for all of us to experience, it would be considerate if he at least disclosed a few of these super secret awesome technologies that are getting ridiculous amounts of acronyms.

He does. But if you actually read anything he posts for content, you'd see he doesn't want to go dark. He just doesn't want to be blamed for the hype.

Give the man a banana Big Grin Big Grin Big Grin You made me laugh hard on that one Big Grin

Hype is never good, look at pherotruth,it's never a good thing even when unintentional, whether Shannon like it or not (to prevent hype), he has to do what he got to do. I would personally try to prevent anything that can get out of hand.

And what is the value of the discussion anyway, most people doesn't even understand what's it's supposed to do. Experience what's it's supposed to do directly, no need to stare at an acronym that you don't even remotely know what it's supposed to do. It's almost like porn at some point, you dream about the results you could achieve with that new high tech stuff. Problem is that this dream might not match reality so you get disappointed.

RE: The Politics Thread
I've become disillusioned with Democracy after this last election. Our political class is corrupt and incompetent, and yet they control our nation's course and hold all power. Specifically the baby-boomers, who make up most of our political class, have had easier lives than their parents and their children. They are like babies that were given the keys to the kingdom but ***** everything up. They have no qualifications to run anything.

Some sort of benevolent dictatorship would be better IMO, kind of like the Roman Empire. If these idiots remain in power, our civilization will not be able to cope with climate change, artificial intelligence or any other significant challenge in the near future. If Elon Musk and other technical experts were given control, everything would be better. We could build hyperloops connecting the East and West coast, an artificial intelligence that could eliminate poverty, and we could colonize Mars.

I think it's inevitable, and only a matter of time. This last election really convinced me that our leaders have been failing us for a long time. I don't completely agree with Trump, but it was satisfying to see him cow and humiliate the people who have been running things.

RE: The Politics Thread
I personally like Trump being elected because yes he is a celeb but also he definitely seems to be the man that will fulfill what he promises. I am not usually a big fan of republicans and more of a democratic party supporter but Trump being Republican really is what the doctor prescribed to make "America Great Again". However in contrast to GWB as Republican he didn't do any good in my opinion as president with so many conspiracies of rigged election back in 2000 and 9/11.

As I tell everyone, give the guy a chance.

(acceptable truncation mine) Clearly you're not from New York, otherwise you'd know very well about his history of not fulfilling what he promises.

RE: The Politics Thread
I would say the president actually reflect the country. If a country is really healthy meaning most of the people are healthy/intelligent/etc they wouldn't get a stupid president that create only problems instead solutions.

I think it's much easier to see the problems at a small scale. Let's take the example of a company with 5 people. If the CEO is a "bad guy" completely corrupted and the employees are very healthy intelligent guys they won't stay in this company for long. But if they are among the lowest grade of individuals they will ask for more of that, even if they complain all the time, they will repeat a loop of frustration. That loop is to:
1st "complain that the boss is the most wicked man alive"
2nd "say they have bad luck and do nothing about it but complain"
3rd "let themselves be manipulated because they fear that there is nothing better to do which means that they actually agree to be treated badly"


The more people will evolve from their stupidity the more they will get better presidents, this is what we are seeing currently as more people are seeing behind the veil of the manipulation which is mostly self induced by their own lack, it's not the presidents faults. In short people are not as stupid as they were, they are slowly getting more aware of what is really happening.

Naa I am not from NY actually I have been raised for over a decade in New England (CT). Well I think he will try to fulfill it.....he started building a wall between Mex and US didn't he?

Most may say he should stick to realty business and never get into politics but I think he has some knowledge in politics if you ever looked at his debates in 2016; look at how many Republican runners started and how Donald was the last Republican standing before the showdown between Hillary and Donald.....

He verbally kicked all Republican's asses during the debates in early 2016 and "put them in their place" that's why most republicans dropped out, even Jeb Bush....

But I am not defensive, I will be more than happy to do my research and see what he couldnt fulfill. Definitely worth looking into.

Ben is trying to herd us all away from talking about weird subjects. Personally, I think he is a Communist agent. Wink

Quote:Conspiracy Theorists USED TO Be Accepted As Normal

Democracy and free market capitalism were founded on conspiracy theories.

The Magna Carta, the Constitution and Declaration of Independence and other founding Western documents were based on conspiracy theories. Greek democracy and free market capitalism were also based on conspiracy theories.

But those were the bad old days …Things have now changed.
The CIA Coined the Term Conspiracy Theorist In 1967

That all changed in the 1960s.

Specifically, in April 1967, the CIA wrote a dispatch which coined the term “conspiracy theories” … and recommended methods for discrediting such theories. The dispatch was marked “psych” – short for “psychological operations” or disinformation – and “CS” for the CIA’s “Clandestine Services” unit.

RE: The Politics Thread
Oh no you discovered my secret! Cool Confused

When someone new comes on here and starts reading all this crap about black magic, witch doctors and such in all these threads that are meant to be about subliminals how do you think that reflects? How many of them leave and think "**** this I don't want to be here?".

That is what the issue is. This is why Rule 4 is in place because it's those subjects that really polarize people and cause arguments, drama and such.

But there's also dedicated threads for these subjects where they can be discussed, so it's not totally off limits. We just don't want it popping up everywhere.

Speaking of Communists, this is pretty much required viewing for anyone interested in how America and by now greater Western society has been DEMORALIZED with targeted subversion tactics. Yuri is a pretty cool guy who defected from KGB while stationed in India.
