People have a right to all available #information that might affect their decisions. In all situations, they have this right. This is an ethical matter. It goes beyond #lying. In fact, I now want to write a book called Beyond Lies because that's some book title (I bet it's already been snatched). I am talking about a world where people walk in to a car dealership, ask about some car, and the first thing out of the salesperson's mouth is, "Oh! Precisely the same model, in the same color is available at a dealer down the street for $1500 less." All relevant information will flow automatically, as if by #magic.

Institutions go to great effort and expense to find clever ways to #lie. And not just lie, they go to great lengths to deny people information that they need to make a decision properly. Not just in markets. In many matters, institutional and personal lying... or, let's call it impression management... is the primary form of communication. It's absurd. People can't make good decisions when they are being intentionally blinded.
 

Capitalism's so bad, even Faux News' Tucker Carlson dispproves of it


Ever since, he has been pounded from both left and right. The Limits of Tucker Carlson’s Anti-Free Market Vision, declared a headline in Slate. Tucker Carlson’s Monologue Insults His Viewers, ran a title line in the Atlantic. In National Review, David French urged the right to reject Carlson’s “victimhood populism”, while Bret Stephens in the New York Times mocked him for questioning elite rule when he himself has so benefited from it.

“For generations,” he declared, “Republicans have considered it their duty to make the world safe for banking while simultaneously prosecuting ever more foreign wars.” Americans “are ruled by mercenaries who feel no long-term obligation to the people they rule”.

Henry Blodget, a former Wall Street analyst who now runs Business Insider, said in a talk on Better Capitalism that shareholder capitalism had turned America into a “nation of overlords and serfs”. Noti... show more

An interesting look into magic, religion and science, but actually also about neoliberal fundamentalism and the parallels between the internet and print with the witch trials of Salem and elsewhere. Magic is about hoping for more then the authoprities allow, so it is rebellious, insubordinate and entrepreneurial. But it is also dangerous and entails great risk. Society might be more like large scale religions or science that more or less say "This is all there is" so don't look further, but in this allow a reassurance that allows something fresh and unpredictable to emerge.

"Magic appeals to the authority of demonstrable results rather than established hierarchies, even if these results remain promised rather than realised. It is not just a debating point to suggest that certain aspects of modern economic theory work remarkably like ancient and Renaissance magic, appealing to uncertainly charted forces in nature and confidently predicting results that are not always prompt in appearing. If we are baffled by the intellectual respectability of magic in earlier days, it may be il... show more
 
The student looked puzzled at the schedule:
- Why so many gym sessions? I thought magic was all about knowledge?
The hefty teacher smiled:
- This isn’t Theoretical Magic here, if you magically hurl a rock boulder, you will be subjected to the counter force, physics laws still apply. Better be in shape if you don’t want to be limited to pebbles.
And, with a wink:
- Also helps with dating!

#CoS 9 3: On entropy, causality and time

At a certain layer of macro physics, for example, we observe irreversible phenomenas, events where we cannot go back.
VISUALIZE glass breaking
VISUALIZE an egg crashing.
These are irreversible processes and you will only observe them going one way. Entropy and the thermodynamical saying that “entropy always increases” maps to the fact that time only flows one way. There exists a link between entropy and time. Many, if not most equations of physics remain uncha... show more
