Assange, political prisoner

November 11th, 2016 by Romeo Anghelache

Here’s an interview by Pilger with Assange, who, by the way, is a political prisoner of US+UK+Sweden, and lives for the last 4 years in a 40 msq prisonasylum offered by Ecuador.

Just so you all may sleep well.

Obama, you “should be rooting” for this guy, word, you can at least put a definite stop to the hunt for Assange, it may be the only useful thing you could make in your entire career, or can you, or could you ever anything except play with words and mix some homey tricks? Actually, Obama, do you exist at all? If there ever was at least a trace of honesty in you, you are morally bound to leave Assange in peace and free before your end-term. Then Snowden, or vice versa, whatever, man…

Neoliberalism is creating loneliness. That’s what’s wrenching society apart | George Monbiot | Opinion | The Guardian

So why are we engaging in this world-eating, self-consuming frenzy of environmental destruction and social dislocation, if all it produces is unbearable pain? Should this question not burn the lips of everyone in public life?

Capitalism is creating loneliness. FTFY.

Indeed, next time you see a creature pronouncing “competition”, “investment”, “capital”, “economy”, “mobility”, “productivity”, “incentives”, just spit and pass by, *never* work for them, these people can’t tell their asshole from a hole in the ground. These are the ones burying the world, and us with it, as long as we let them. I prefer non-assisted euthanasia to capitalism and am waiting for 25 years for a public facility like this. Aaron Swartz moved to a better world than this, the physical one. If I were born were and when he was, I would have done the same.

My suggestion is: ban economists from any public office or funds, or any closeness to them, and replace them with engineers and scientists.

But seriously, if we continue to ignore these principles:
1. total personal wealth is limited to an amount equal to a max lifetime (~130 years) of average wages.
2. the unconditional basic income (understood as energy, shelter, food and sanitary services for basic living)
we keep getting what we deserve. Any society adopting only one of them, will fail having the other too.

The alternative? Replace your car with an electrical one, ummm, generally replace an object you bought with other(s), when bored buy some more teeth, the economy surrounding you will grow, so you may call it developed. Just watch.

Impostors in science

September 26th, 2016 by Romeo Anghelache

Over the last 50 years, we argue that incentives for academic scientists have become increasingly perverse in terms of competition for research funding, development of quantitative metrics to measure performance, and a changing business model for higher education itself.

And it’s quite simple to detect who are the impostors: those who published more than two papers per year in peer-reviewed journals. These are most probably the ones deciding now on public funding research and should be put out of their (public paid) jobs ASAP.

For the last two decades, these were also those who intensely and continually handed off the copyright on their publicly financed research to private publishers, so you need to pay yet again to access their “results”.
