Gary Johnson now polling at 6% nationally, and is suing the two parties for debate access.

"If the lawsuit is successful, this year's CPD-sponsored debates will either expand to include the Libertarian candidates as well as the Green Party ticket of Massachusetts physician Jill Stein and Pennsylvania anti-poverty advocate Cheri Honkala, or be canceled."

    I don't think anyone objects to companies producing things. The objection is to corporatism. We can all have iPhones without corporatism.

    This reminds me of the old socialist "you use our roads" argument. You can have roads with or without goverments.

    I don't think Ron Paul necessarily "wins" this argument. The post 9/11 world is a place where there are a lot of people who are OK with the Patriot Act and proactive security measures. It just comes down to whether you think they will work or not, because they certainly erode our individual liberty. Are you OK with that tradeoff?

    For me, if someone is crazy and wants to hijack a plane, there's actually nothing you can do about it. You can carry sharp sticks onto planes that function as knives. And you can get complex bomb devices and other fear capturing devices onto planes relatively easy.

    But the flip side is having someone listen to your phone calls and pepper spray you when you protest. One person has the right to use force over or spy on another without due process. Who is the actual terrorist here? And why should anyone trust a bureaucrat to keep them safe?

    Came across this post by +Edwin Perello via +Steven Sudit.

    While I disagree that property (a loaded word) is the root of all evil, I do think it's time the real libertarians separate themselves from the fakes.

    Business value via Ayn Rand Objectivism is isolationist in nature and severely underestimates the value of those around you. The right to self-interest must inherently, simultaneously and logically accept the right to self-interest of others. This is a simple but apparently true error in a large part of the co-opted liberty movement. Liberty means freedom not for me, or you, or the individual alone but for everyone at once. Self-interest is not a license to abandon the interests of others. It is in fact a requirement to ensure the possibility of all self-interest at once. You cannot have a market by yourself. And the wealth of the market stems from the success of everyone around you, not from you alone.

    Here's the problem as I see it: there is a false dichotomy being played out. Elizabeth Warren is neither wrong or right. Government can be great and it can also suck. Privatization can be great and it can also suck. There is a spectrum of good and bad and mediocre examples of all of these. There are simply many different ways for a society to succeed.

    My objection is when members of a society have no choice about which solution they would like to participate in. I don't like the false dichotomy because it perpetuates the notion that there must only be one social contract for everybody.

    One of the problems in politics today (maybe all time?) is that people immediately knee-jerk one direction or another. But the concepts that Elizabeth Warren promotes are much more rooted in philosophy than typical political jargon. She's making a structured case for her political position.

    This is a good thing: instead of talking about symptoms she's bringing the conversation over to the root systems. We're all better off talking about root causes and rooted decision making.

    The problem with figurehead leaders like Romney, Obama, Bush and Pelosi is that they don't have any underlying principle that they are attempting to accomplish, it's just vague party talking points. There is no foundation. With principled leaders you not only know what you are getting but why you are getting it. And on this foundation we can truly evaluate what works and stop what doesn't work instead of arguing endlessly through spin and biased media jargon.

    I don't agree at all with Warren's ideas, but in a democratic situation (which we are all stuck in currently) I'd much rather engage with someone who has thought through their position than a puppet.

    As always, I'm interested in the dynamics of social thought. If all you want to do is call Warren a bitch I'm not interested.

    Question for the Occupy Wall Street people -

    Why aren't you protesting the two WARS we are in?

    Why aren't you demanding an immediate END to these wars?

    Just curious.

    If I could muster a few thousand people for a protest.... the ONGOING support of these wars would be on the top of my list of things to protest....

    Absolute nightmarish scenario watching him proudly discard due process while the crowd nervously twists up and down, unsure what exactly is going on.

    These two sides will argue this classic discussion until they are blue in the face and neither will get what they want because there is only one state. That means that at any given time, only a single implementation will be forced upon everyone. And that single implementation is neither capitalist or socialist, it's some kind of disgusting authoritarian corporate state that nobody wants.

    "When a user sends a picture or document, it will be encrypted, digitally “shredded” into thousands of pieces, and temporarily stored in a “Secure Cloud Broker” until it is transmitted to the recipient. Silent Circle, which charges $20 a month for its service, has no way of accessing the encrypted files because the “key” to open them is held on the users’ devices and then deleted after it has been used to open the files. Janke has also committed to making the source code of the new technology available publicly “as fast as we can,” which means its security can be independently audited by researchers."

    I agree with +Stefan Molyneux. But the problem for me (and I think some of the OWS protesters) is that while it may originate with the state, I don't think it's just the state any more. We're not talking about Starbucks here, we're talking about Goldman Sachs, Lockheed Martin, Exxon and Wal-Mart. These companies and others like them literally write legislation. The difference is becoming blurred.

    Yes, the state enables them to do this, but at some point the balance of power shifts from the kings to the kingmakers. Not sure if we are there yet, but it's worth considering.

    "I'm deaf.....So, to answer your question, I think in ASL (American Sign Language). I guess deaf people's thinking process is little different from hearing people. When I think, it's like I'm seeing myself signing from either my point of view or third person view and when I'm imagine a hearing person speaking, I imagine him/her actually signing instead of speaking because I can understand him/her that way."

    According the US Military, Wikileaks is an enemy of the state on the level of al Qaeda and the Taliban.

    Note that Wikileaks as an organization has not ever committed any acts of violence nor promoted them, but merely attempted to provide a platform for whistleblowing.

    Under NDAA, anyone could easily be viewed as a threat to the state even by just reading Wikileaks. And then indefinitely detained, tortured, etc....

    Take a second to notice how this works. Try to ignore the points both the Young Turks and Lou Dobbs make and rather focus on the larger, more general effect of what is happening here.

    1. It immediately sets up a false dichotomy of liberal vs conservative. Everybody will fall into line either agreeing disagreeing because the opinion is so heavy-handed and absolute. There is no room for a third opinion or nuance when complex concepts are reduced like this. You've just been boxed up into one of two camps whether you wanted to be or not.
    2. The vilification placed upon the topic creates an atmosphere of hatred and despair (large, sweeping agendas that out of our control). This is responded to with ridicule and return vilification. The dialogue is never about anything real but rather more focused on loaded meta concepts (liberal Hollywood, agendas and indoctrination, and also massive outrage).
    3. The outrage is a poor response, this is exactly the desired effect of this kind of "story". A strongly divided and angry group of people cannot be rational and effective as a collective society. This is a validation of the false dichotomy and perpetuates the myth of a black and white world.

    Here's a cool idea for the plot of a hip, action-thriller movie set in some alternate dystopian universe: a country is spying on itself by secretly harnessing ancient security technology BUT it doesn't want the public to know, so it is using hackers to send DDOS attacks against whistleblowing websites. Everyone says "that sucks" and then goes and watches the Olympics.

    Update: photos from the SD card that provide clues are in the album

    For Sale: Canon EOS 1000D
    Description: only used underwater once, in the Pacific Ocean, for approximately one year.

    Actual story: found off the end of a wharf in Deep Bay, BC while I was diving on a job for the harbour. I removed the SD card, cleaned it up, stuck it in a card reader and after being underwater in a corroding camera since August 2010 - it works! Approximately 50 pictures on the card from a family vacation. If you know a fire fighter from British Columbia that won the Pacific Regional Firefit competition in 2010, has a lovely wife and (now) 2 year old daughter - let me know. I would love to get them their vacation photos :)

    There are other clues on within the pictures - I think I should be able to track them down (not sure he'll want the camera back tho).

    Self-sculpting Sand

    New algorithms could enable heaps of ‘smart sand’ that can assume any shape, allowing spontaneous formation of new tools or duplication of broken mechanical parts.

    "Arguing the case for the Obama administration, Solicitor General Donald B. Verrilli Jr. defended the law as a constitutional exercise of congressional power under the charter’s commerce clause to regulate interstate commerce."

    Wait. How is health care interstate commerce?

    I don't know if "it's your fault" is the right way to phrase it, but to me this is the right take on the Google's privacy problem this week.

    Google is not a stalker or Peeping Tom. When you "plus one" something you are giving them data about what you like, which they then can use to improve the services they provide you. This isn't about privacy at all. It's about information. If you want ads all over the internet that have nothing to do with you and no integrated services than you can shut off your cookies. Your subsequent internet experience will be terrible.

    Chase Bank just set me a snail mail informing me that their records indicate I don't want any offers from them. It also informs me they are "updating [my] preferences" to state that I DO want offers from them, unless I fill out a form saying I don't. #fuckthesebanks

    Godspeed you, Pirate Bay.

    “All communication with users goes through TPB’s load balancer, which is a disk-less server with all the configuration in RAM. The load balancer is not in the same country as the transit-router or the cloud servers,” The Pirate Bay told us.

    For Wikipedia junkies like me this is a pretty amazing tip, I had no idea. I have always been afraid (for several reasons) to jump in to the editing side. Here's a big reason to take a tiny step...
