35 Human Learnings from “The Lessons of History” by Will & Ariel Durant (Book Summary)
 

Democracy doesn’t matter to the defenders of ‘economic freedom’

When Walker’s Fraser Institute published its first index in 1996 with a foreword from Friedman, there were some surprises. According to its historical overview, the second freest economy in the world in 1975 was Honduras, a military dictatorship. For the next year, another dictatorship, Guatemala, was in the top five. These were no anomalies. They expressed a basic truth about the indexes. The definition of freedom they used meant that democracy was a moot point, monetary stability was paramount and any expansion of social services would lead to a fall in the rankings. Taxation was theft, pure and simple, and austerity was the only path to the top.

“The ‘right’ to food, clothing, medical services, housing or a minimal income level,” the authors wrote, was nothing less than “‘forced labor’ requirements [imposed]on others.” The director of the index translated the vision into policy advice a few years later, writing in a pub

People who value #freedom are never fanatics. Those who oppose #freedom e.g. by adding back doors to everything and breaking the law to coerce people, describe their opposers/exposers as such. Old trick. Projection.

At #linuxfoundation there's a strictly forbidden F word. That word is #freedom

The other "f" is OK; #zemlinpac is fucking the #freesw community and #linux champion #torvalds says "fuck" even in his formal talks, e.g. "f u nvidia"

Gesucht wird eine Lydia, welche an der niederländischen Grenze in Verden? wohnt. Sie ist 28, hat in Stuttgart studiert und ist wohl nicht gerade hässlich. Macht irgendwas mit Überflutungsschutz 🤔 Sie mag Fußball aber keinen Hip Hop. Haarfarbe: blond; sie war dieses WE in Hamburg zu Besuch.

Kumpel findet die toll und hat nicht nach der Nummer gefragt 🙄

Sie nutzt wohl kein FB, Insta oder sonst was.

Bitte helft meinem Kumpel und boosted! Danke schön! 😘

"an open-source code base could be key to maximising efficiency."

When #rms started he spoke about #freedom and these phones now speak only of stuff like "efficiency" (it's about money, getting free labour)
 
Morale in the #freesw community is as low as I've ever seen it; but paradoxically, #gnu and Free software are used more than ever before. The issue is, sans the #freedom because of #clowncomputing etc. and it's used for evil like #surveillance and #assassination -- not what we volunteered for
 
The potentially life-saving medicine is effective for a number of treatment-resistant conditions and will have been legal for a year on Friday.

Doctors have effectively been blocked from prescribing it due to a lack of clinical evidence.

To me, and hopefully to many other people, the #GNU brand is far stronger and more powerful than the #Linux brand, more so after the #linuxfoundation started handing out this brand to #microsoft and #openwashing stunts. GNU? It means #FREEDOM
 

If the truth isn't free then the freedom isn't true.

yep. this is how freedom dies. not with a fight, but with rapturous applause. beware the insidious bastids. they'll sell your enslavement well, bit by bit.
