Zero Edge My opinion, as a small business owner.. Pause raising rates for a while and see if the FED has done enough. The interest rate lever isn't perfect. Keep market tepid. NOT COLD.
Zero Edge My ideal phone: Not part of Google/Apples monopoly. Respects privacy. No proprietary apps = Web apps only. If possible: Starlink integration with hotspot which allows me to cancel my ISP. I would also want a device that last 5+ years (with updates) the way every iPhone I have ever had has.
♦️ Robert Blinov "The next pandemic" is dystopia-speak: trying to normalise once-in-a-century type events occurring one after another.
Zero Edge There will always be a "next one" and they will always look to the "previous one" for guidance. It's why the decisions made today don't just effect today. They affect the future too. Scary thoughts....
🍁 Nathan Yeah I just don't think so. Except some minor backlashes on the way, human civilization as a whole has been constantly improving. We're evolving as a species biologically and culturally and so far managed to cope with all challenges. Empirically it's just very unlikely for the world to end in dystopia.
Zero Edge I guess your and my definition of "dystopia" differs greatly. I don't see a world where the government has complete control over you and your actions anything but. The government wants to bar you from shopping at a grocery store? Their choice. This power can be easily abused. Dystopia to me is when the power no longer belongs to the people. I won't even get into the fact that mandating drugs with no long term data will eventually lead to extinction. 'MRNA' supposedly had the first stages complete. The next one likely wont. You will be forced to take an untested drug or you will lose your life. That is dystopia.
🍁 Nathan I have witnessed too many 'the world as we know it will end' predictions over the course of my life to believe this time it's actually going to be the tipping point.
Zero Edge The point was that the world as we know it would end. Basically that tyranny will win at that point.
Zero Edge Does "tech debt" exist if the development cycle has a clear ending? Seems like tech debt is only relevant when you plan on updating a system indefinitely.
Zero Edge Can't wait for the dystopia future the G20 want to usher in. Double down on their failed strategies. Never admit they are wrong. Under G20's brilliant ideas, during the next pandemic the world we know will be over. It will be complete tyranny and no one will stop them. Vaccine Passports = The End.... I mean these pricks are so arrogant what would they do if this vaccine was actually "bad"? I have no doubt they would let people die instead of sacrificing their pride and admit the "horrible unvaccinated" were right... How anyone can trust this group of absolute baboons I have no idea.

Zero Edge Trust God. Don't use God.
🍁 Nathan I've heard the saying 'Trust in Allah. But first, tie your camel.'
♦️ Robert Blinov Ban politicians.
Zero Edge Ban greed.
Zero Edge I love democracy. I love how the elections allow us to understand what the nation is feeling in this moment. Whether people agree or disagree with your view. Doesn't mean your view is wrong just that more may feel different. I think America is very healthy if we have close races. It means that more peoples voices are heard when states go back and forth. I just wish our politicians cared more about us than their campaigns. Just because you are good at winning elections doesn't mean you are good at ruling. Rule for the people, not for yourselves. Ban politicians from having any financial gains from their office. Integrity first.
🏒 Lucian Marin Brain cells have to do something, useful or not.
Zero Edge If brain cells are in control are we accountable for our actions?
Zero Edge They literally wanted to form the "ministry of truth". Literally. They want to memory hole everything they did over the past 2 years. They cry about 'violence' when they practically endorsed the 'defund the police' riots. Someone barricaded a police departments doors and lit the building on fire. They don't care about you. They care about you voting for them and they will say whatever they need to to get your vote. Scam.
🏒 Lucian Marin The present is a Venn diagram of past and future. Regions of my brain that control memory (past) and imagination (future) decide what I'm writing now.
Zero Edge What is forming the thought. What controls it?
Zero Edge Anderson Silva's fighting style is like Spike from Cowboy Bebop.. So cool....
Zero Edge What is at the source of your thoughts? You or Who? Are you 0 or are you 1? Which is true?

Zero Edge They were ready to throw unvaccinated in camps. I won't forget.
