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.

16/06/2021 - SUGAR!

Não! ÁGUA! That was the right choice from Cristiano Ronaldo, as he pushed away the unhealthy bottles with black liquid full of sugar and salt.


So, why should we avoid sugar?

How much is “too much” sugar? Traditionally, the World Health Organization (WHO) recommended getting no more than 10 per cent of our daily calorific intake from sugar. However, an update to its guidelines in 2015 saw them half that recommendation to 5 per cent - equating to around 25 grams, or six teaspoons, of sugar a day.
Now considering that a can of soft...

15/06/2021 - Digital Inquisition

By the 1960s, it was pretty obvious that sugar contributed to health problems.

Several studies had already been published suggesting that excess sugar consumption was a major cause of coronary heart disease. This was a problem for the Sugar Research Foundation— an industry group dedicated to promoting the consumption of sugar. The organization decided to fund its own ‘studies’ meant to discredit all the other research saying that sugar was bad.

In fact, the Sugar Research Foundation directed its funding on studies which exonerated sugar and instead blamed fat for people’s poor health. For one study that was conducted in 1967, for example, the Sugar...

12/06/2021 - The Specialists – The Supermen of Today

The Population Alarmists were an exciting coalition. Some simply disliked people who believed in a God who ban condoms and abortions. Others were most afraid of the Chinese. Some were probably gentle humanists who became stressed and distressed by people in such high number that they were no longer able to discern individuals. The really funny ones were the ones who only half-heartedly blamed their disgust for man as a species. With lustful longing, they could speak of coming plagues and famines.

There's really one thing that worries about the World population. That's what they'll spend their days doing. It is not exactly that unemployment will rise. Rather the opposite. People have an amazing ability to find something...

07/06/2021 - When freedom turns slavery

In the beginning of the era of motorized vehicles,  the car was the key to freedom, the open door to waste land. In the 1950´s the car became culture, America overpopularized the car and the four-wheeler became religion for many. Finally when many people could afford the car, the liberty trend reversed and the regulations took over. Few things in our society are so controlled and regularized as the motorized vehicle.

The computer, once the most sophisticated tool for scientists, went into the universities in the 1980´s. Internet connected students, engineers, manufacturers around the Millenium shift. Digital devices like cellphone and camera came the same time, the computer got integrated...

05/06/2021 - Contemplation of changes

This is about changes. We have definitively crossed a red line. We are changing too much and too fast. But first three absolute true statements:

1.    Evolution of nature is slow (in relation to our modern rhythm).

2.    Technological development is fast.

3.    Government power is always transitory.

2.    The progress of human technology has always been fast in relation to the present conditions. After the World got connected by a World Wide Web, www, the changes have accelerated. We should not expect the creation of similar inventions at the same moment from remote locals. The contributions...
