10/01/2021 - FREEDOM

Freedom means being in control (either as an individual or as a member of a SMALL group) of the life-and-death issues of one's existence; food, clothing, shelter and defense against whatever threats there may be in one's environment. Freedom means having power, without interference, manipulation or supervision from anyone; not the power to control other people but the power to control the circumstances of one's own life. One does not have freedom if anyone else (especially a large organization) has power over one, no matter how benevolently, tolerantly and permissively that power may be exercised.


27/12/2020 - God is dead. Long live God !

It has been 134 years since Friedrich Nietzsche declared: “God is Dead” (or “Gott ist tot”, in German). The statement was published in his book The Gay Science, (or “Die fröhliche Wissenschaft” in German). Nietzsche was an atheist and didn’t mean that there was a God who had actually died, rather that our idea of one had.

The idea of a universe that was governed by physical laws and not by divine providence was born together with the Industrial Revolution. Philosophy had shown that governments no longer needed to be organaized around the idea of divine right to be legitimate. Europe no longer wanted God as the source for all morality, value, or order in the Universe; now people...

29/11/2020 - BIG DIGGO

The West, once a time so rich, is sliding downhills to poverty. But not for all. Some few individs retains an extremely power they never will get enough of, as they always will aim for the ultimate power. The Supreme power over the Universe. And it seems that it will go right easy, too easy. 
The fruits of human existence , matured by hard work, creative inventions, smart administration, careful politics is fast going to consolidate in the pockets of the very few.
Digital technique, once understood as beneficial for the main stream population, understood to bring free speech, education, comfort, safety, freedom, has turned to be the very opposite. Today, it appears to be a threat, the ultimate theft. Theft of all...

13/11/2020 - When an Empire dissolves. Reboot 2000 years ago

On September 18 of the year 96 AD, a fairly obscure and elderly politician named Marcus Cocceius Nerva was proclaimed Emperor of Rome by the Senate. Rome was in chaos at the time; the empire had suffered from years of turmoil, economic decline, and oppression.  Most of the last several emperors-- going back before the suicide of Nero in 68 AD-- had been extremely destructive… plundering the treasury, waging expensive wars, and dismantling individual liberty. The government was also extremely unstable; it was not uncommon at that point for emperors to be deposed or even assassinated.

In fact, Nerva’s predecessor-- the emperor Domitian-- had literally been murdered that morning.  Nerva was seen by many Senators...
