Premise: Two brothers determine to get a truckload of beer across multiple state lines in an amount of time which requires speed limits to be exceeded.

Hero(s): Truck driver & Point driver

Plot: Point driver leads law enforcement on chases distracting and otherwise keeping them from noticing the speeding truck, clearing truck driver to make an exceedingly quick cross-country beer delivery.

Moral(s): Don't get caught, laws aren't important so long as there is money to be made.

Question: How many boys watched this movie as a child seeking to be as their hero—corporately equiped to break the law, not get caught, and satisfy the requirements of the men who hired them—in order to achieve their lifestyle?

When you start placing things before people then the whole society is in trouble.

Satoshi is the secret

Something I realized this morning, among other things, is that it is not the Bitcoin which is the only genius; It's the Satoshi (1/100,000,000 of a bitcoin) which is also a brilliant bit because it gets people ready to think in terms of very small unary units: Units small enough to want to automate their processing away. It teaches users to think about the hidden tax: inflation. It teaches to any user with eyes to see to think of currency as fluidity, not something solid, i.e. a bar of gold.

Dismantle and restructure
I suppose it is the very small part of me which is native (aboriginal) American, however I really like the 10,000 Nations idea of governance. We in the states have 3143 county and county-equivalent governments. We've produced the internet and are the last superpower. In order to keep this status (hegemony) we must create enemies in order to justify its continued existence.

There's a choice
Continue with hegemony (which elite interests favor) or peaceably reconsider. The U.S. was founded on Roman ideas. Rome fell not by a single conquest but rather by a slow, steady, and gradual decline. In our lifetime industrialization has pulled out of this country. Yet we still have a lot of smart people who know and who do create great advances built atop the knowledge bases of our ancestors.

I don't worry
I don't worry about things like global terrorism. Terrorism may in fact increase and still it is not something that I think that I would bow my head in fear to. My concern is rightfully (I believe) placed with my family, my neighbors, my business, and taking it easy; Over these I have the most chance of making a positive difference.
