Paths for freedom and progress
The human race with technology is just like an alcoholic with a bottle of vodka (Ted Kaczynski)                        Remember, democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts and murders itself. There was never a democracy yet that didn´t commit suicide. John Adams, USA President, 1797-1801                        "The system makes an individual's life easier for him in innumerable ways, but in doing so it deprives him of control over his own fate."(Ted Kaczinsky)                        "Just don´t waste" (Sir David Attenborough)                        Western democracy is a gas. Useful for blowing up multicolored balloons (Nilsson)                        “By continuing the process of inflation governments can confiscate secretly and unobserved an important part of the wealth of their citizens.”(Keynes)                        Patience is bitter, but its fruit is sweet. ( Jean Jaques Rousseau )                        Man needs to work and fight in the Nature, not against it. (Thomas Ulf Nilsson)                        I prefer liberty with danger than peace with slavery. ( Jean Jaques Rousseau )                        The intellectual, tweed-wearing middle-class socialist didn't like the poor; they just hated the rich (Orwell)                        We swallow greedily any lie that flatters us, but we sip only little by little at a truth we find bitter. Denis Diderot                        Marxism and capitalism are equal. Both explore productive and creative men for the benefit of parasites. Thomas Nilsson.                        Useless laws weaken the necessary laws.(Montesquieu)                          Stilles wasser sind tief. (Still waters run deep). Friedrich Ludwig Schröder                         Happiness is nothing more than good health and a bad memory.Albert Schweitzer                         Love is when you desire happiness of the others. Unconditional, without expecting anything in return. Buddha                        If we only wanted to be happy, it would be easy; but we want to be happier than other people, and that is almost always difficult, since we think them happier than they are. (Montesquieu)                         About true liberty: Abraham Lincoln may have freed all men, but Sam Colt made them equal.                        Die meisten Menschen brauchen mehr Liebe, als sie verdienen (Most people need more love than they deserve) Marie Freifrau von Ebner-Eschenbach                         You should neither judge, nor forgive. Leave such matters to the Destiny. Thomas Nilsson                         An injustice to one is a threat made to all.

He was the ultimate protest against the Swedish System. Sweden has since long time ago a government policy which reduce creativity and freedom to a level where total equality is standard. The Swedish citizen expect the government taking care of every being, from the kindergarten to the asylum. Even if the government makes the Swedes pay expensive taxes to cover the expenses of the so called “Swedish welfare”. It is meaningless to openly critic such system. Soon harsh words will fly like screaming seagulls; “elitist”, “nazi”, “egoist”. Then comes silence. You are frozen – by your kinsmen. You lose your job. You lose your family. You lose your mind. If you express yourself in the wrong way.  Are you against...

02/09/2021 - The perfect experts

In the year of 1615, the Catholic Church hired eleven ‘expert consultants’ and asked them to review the scientific work of Nicolaus Copernicus.  Copernicus, of course, was one of the first scientists to propose that the sun (not the earth) was at the center of the universe. But even though Copernicus had been dead for more than 70 years at that point, his ideas still lived on... and were being advanced by none other than Galileo. Galileo had published his own research with compelling evidence that Copernicus was right.

This view of the universe conflicted with Church teachings that the Earth was at the center of the universe. So the Vatican decided to settle the matter with its panel of expert ‘fact checkers’.On February 4,...

25/08/2021 - US $ is not gold

301 AD was a big year for the Roman Empire.

That was the year that, amid spiraling inflation, Emperor Diocletian issued his Edict on Maximum Prices, essentially fixing prices of just about everything across the Roman Empire.
The price of wheat, a day labor’s wages, a quart of olive oil, transportation rates-- everything was established by the Emperor’s edict, and enforced under penalty of death.
Diocletian’s edict infamously didn’t work, and the empire plunged into even more severe inflation.
The other big event of 301 AD was the introduction of the solidus gold coin, roughly 4.5 grams of nearly pure gold.

And while the Romans had a history of...

21/08/2021 - YOU IN VIETNAM (1967)

American war veterans comment an “instruction movie”:

-    Looks like a travel agency film. They kept the real Vietnam, that the military will be seeing, a total bad surprise.

-    Convince them we are friends….I don’t remember being told that…I was told if it has two legs and not in a US military uniform good chance it’s the enemy.

-    I was in the Corps from 1968-1972. In 1969 I was in Vietnam, we never saw any film like this! They gave us our gear and our M-16 and said go out and get them. No film was needed. That's just another example of waisted tax payers money that went down the...

21/08/2021 - A short lesson

A mouse was placed at the top of a jar filled with grains. It was so happy to find so much food around him that no longer he felt the need to run around searching for food. Now he could happily live his life. After a few days of enjoying the grains, he reached the bottom of the jar.

Suddenly, he realize that he was trapped and he cannot get out. He now has to fully depend on someone to put grains in the jar for him to survive.

Now he has no choice but to eat what he's given.

A few lessons to learn from this:

1. Short term pleasures can lead to long-term traps.

2. If...
