Keeping Utopia Values and Goals Longer

Who is the real founder of democracy, or to put it differently "The mother of democracy"? Democracy is generally etiologically associated with the efforts of the ancient Greeks. Are the Christians with their cardinals - the men who will elect a new Pope on the death of the current incumbent - the real founder of democracy; India has its own argument to be the mother of democracy I suppose; and so does Croatia - with The Republic of Ragusa. In my opinion, just because parliament exists doesn't automatically mean the Republic is a real Democracy with human rights in place and equality for all its citizens. The Parliament of England is from the 13th century, but the Althing - the oldest surviving parliament in the world, is the national parliament of Iceland. The Althing is the oldest legislature in the world that still exists. It was founded in 930. Surely, French Revolution has popularised human beings as individuals best suited to democracy, protected by human rights, and represented in the parliament. I remain against direct democracy because representative democracy is better for keeping utopia values and goals longer.

Timeless questions? ( 6th part )

1) What is Stockholm syndrome and how is it related to Swedish House Mafia?

I believe the connection between these two concepts is that it is very difficult to leave. In the first, similarly to the second, there is a sense of belonging because the victim is allowed to perform basic life (physiological) needs.

2) When will the weather get back to normal and who/what ruined it?

The weather isn't getting back to normal, there are too many factors working against it. When you ask yourself who/what ruined the weather take a look at any environmental documentary, it's about time.

My Market Watch

My daily monitoring of the stock market is a must, but superficial. I applaud recent value cuts to ease inflationary pressure. The USA stock bubble reminds me so much of Japan's bubble in the late 80'.

My heart totally agrees with Buffet's approach to cryptocurrencies, but if I had the opportunity would invest, I've set up my crypto-wallet. I'm waiting for the act of kindness by my audience to start filling it. The thing I don't like the most about cryptocurrencies is energy consumption and the long time of the transaction. That's a big downside. 

I'll remain modestly optimistic hoping a new version of the cryptocurrencies ecosystems will be better, keeping the terminology (brand). Such improvement is easy to expect in "Internet Technology", but, I know, it's easier said than done.

How to Avoid News Saturation

I give this example to explain how news can be a drag without a proper interpreter - 12.2 km hole vertical to Earth but the accompanying Earth diameter is 12.742 km. 

Another problem was with a 'Fake News' chase - when people wanted to write about Jupiter's Great Red Spot - it's nothing new therefore it's not the news - it could be 'Fake News'. But now things changed unevenly and Great Red Spot is different.



My way of avoiding news saturation is blocking all IM, SMS, and mob app notifications, except Natural Disaster Alert System of course, because it looks too radical for me to delete social network profiles altogether. Viral marketing produces many last-minute offers that you couldn't normally resist, the end of this massive salle-out begins with environmental concerns. There will always be another puppy to buy or another movie to rent, the key is acting restrained.

Borg, Free Speech, Renormalizing Thermostats - Energy Drainers

You see, when you're borg it's like having an octopus in your butt hehe - check out Oliver Heldens x Becky Hill - Gecko (Overdrive) [Official Music Video] https://youtu.be/kcZMCMI24gs

I don't like that most people are just keeping a low profile, and then whoever speaks, who has the main word, is constantly charged for something. I sort of like the free speech absolutist approach.

Moronic is a perfect language for the absurd: should we emulate psychocrats, and renormalize thermostats considering climate change, as they did with the IQ scale regarding the Flynn effect 😲

A psychic vampire (or energy vampire) is a fictional and religious creature said to feed off the "life force" of other living creatures.

There Is a Story Behind Everything, but...

 They say 

there is a story behind everything

but this bloggers' post seems inappropriate:

I'm sure many people reported it, but I would really like to know what's the story behind it, some stream of thought. This meme at best looks just like an empty sitting duck without posting elaboration.
