Number of Poverty, decline videos on Youtube

Just wanted to bring up the topic of just the sheer number of "decline" videos on the internet. Whether it's communities, families, malls, cities, countries, gun violence, mental health etc. There is just an unrelenting amount of theses videos (I am sure there are an unrelenting number of other vide...

Re: Buckminster Fuller's Energy Slaves [Comic form]

That's just it though right? Having a discussion about moving to the Nordics is different than moving there. I suppose some rich people have already set-up bunkers and others might be living off the grid already, but that is the exception rather than the norm I'd speculate. Emergency means there the...

Re: Buckminster Fuller's Energy Slaves [Comic form]

I read the comics and watched the video. Great resources and material. True Education. I wondered to myself if this built a strong case for investing in reliable, low debt, conventional oil companies? These things will need to be protected at any cost and are one of the truest froms of wealth in the...

Tesla Charge Stations - Greenhouse Gases

https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-05-27/some-tesla-superchargers-now-limit-your-cars-charge-80-0 Just shows, technology and trying to "save the planet" with one's personal choices are still subject to politics at a higer level.

Re: UAPs .. This changes everything?

Just to state the obvious, if aircraft can do things like this, what other powers do the engineers of this craft possess as well? Are the rules of engagement we think we know really true? And how worried should we be about pedestrian matters when something like that is out there..

Re: Doug Casy on the Climate Change Hoax Part 2

A one child policy is not the answer. We have seen this before (aborting the less desired sex in utero for instance). Also, with 5G, population decline may just happen on it's own. No population = no society. It's like telling a tree it can only grow one limb. Great analogy eh!? But if there is a wa...

AOC suffering from the Dunning Kruger Effect?

AOC is pretty sure about how great the Green New Deal could be. But critics say that it will vastly change the way of life for Americans, be trillions too expensive, and have negative consequences (living wage for those unwilling to work etc). She often does not refute her arguments but says things ...
