All alone, or in twos
The ones who really love you
Walk up and down outside the wall
Some hand in hand
Some gathering together in bands
The bleeding hearts and the artists
Make their stand
And when they’ve given you their all
Some stagger and fall after all it’s not easy
banging your heart against some mad buggers
Roger Waters, Pink Floyd
So I guess free union and collective bargaining are ok to lift workers and their families out from under oppressive regimes and poverty. But once they are no longer “poor” unions and collective bargaining are not ok to maintain that standard of living? (: Fuck you Gov. Walker!
When you stop and really think about how people use social places like Facebook and Twitter and doesn’t make you feel a little like you’re paying a penny to see the lunatics?
Kevin Kelly wrote after watching the video:
Agnostics end with the lack of an answer.
Possibilians begin with the lack of an answer.
Agnostics say, we can’t decide between this and that.
Possibilians say, there are other choices than this or that.
Agnostics say, I Don’t Know, it’s impossible to answer that question.
Possibilians say, I Don’t Know, there must be better questions.
Both start in humility, but agnosticism is bounded by our great ignorance, while possibilism is unbounded by our limited knowledge.
I think that both Dr. David Eagleman (Neuroscientist) and Kevin Kelly have shown a possible way out of the polarized and mean-spirited conversation that has captured and continues to torture mainstream America.
