Unenlightened

I recently listened to Hotep Jesus on Joe Rogan the other day and was educated in something that I had been taught, and never seeked out to contradict my education.
How are we kept unenlighted otherwise?

Working Around
the Red Tape

I recently listened to an episode of Congressional Dish talking about the extreme costs of going to the doctor in an emergency situtation. How much is this cost regulated? How much is forced through governmental red tape making sure we don't have snake oil salesmen?

Nerd Night

Technology has made it easy and fun to play with people from all over the world, but when's the last time you had a group of friends and/or family sit down and play a game together in one room?

G.M.O.'s

There's been a lot of talk recently about "meatless burgers" lately. This has led me down a thought line that includes other foods, dogs, vitamins and minerals, and so far as to include CRISPR.

Unplugging

I float the river in the summer time, and the one thing I enjoy most about it is Unplugging. Leaving technology behind a few hours to soak in life around me.

Debt to the State

I've been induldging in Soviet Russia era stories. Seeing how they used their population to enforce State requirements, where do we stand today when the State comes a'calling?

Rite of Passage

What is our current day Rite of Passage? What occasion marks our progression through life to show we have grown?

Universal Basic Income

There's been a lot of talk lately about Universal Basic Income (UBI). Where does the money come from? How will it impact us overall? Do we already have a UBI?
