  1. From "the particular" (this trade, today's sunrise, this water, etc.etc). to "the general" (all trades, all sunrises, all oceans) IS induction. And it requires cognitive effort to avoid drawing false propositions. You don't conclude that Capitalism is moral, initially: (for the moment let's assume this individual has no idea of "capitalism") - you observed that THIS deal was good and proper and moral - and this one, and the next - and then generalized. You have seen the philosophical definition of induction, do you not accept it? The reason people think that Capitalism "has failed" i

  2. I find it a little ironic that on the one hand I advocate for a system where there would be little to no public property, state media, public utilities of any kind. Where all is privately owned, traded, rented, sold and used in the free market. Yet I almost am tempted to treat the various media service platforms as coming within the public sphere, I almost conflate their private with public good and their private action with government action...but reason brings me back from the brink. My only consolation is the double negative... that since we live in a mixed economy there no dou

  3. From the Elan Journo Facebook entry TG posted a few posts above: ===== Start Quote ===== "[Gates'] philanthropic foundation has pledged $250 million to help with the manufacture of promising vaccines for the novel coronavirus." ===== End Quote ===== And then watch what's coming. India, especially, look out. Bad batch of vaccine? Many deaths? And, predicting a pandemic for which the world isn't prepared is such a great deniability cover for writing the blueprint for said pandemic. Ellen

  4. S, AG Barr gives a pretty good short explanation of what happened in practice: bait and switch. You might be interested to know that all these tech giants, starting with Google, used a Marxist system to get where they are. That is part of the bait and switch AG Barr is talking about--the root, so to speak. I wrote about this last year. George Gilder is the one who made it clear to me. Gilder continues in the quote below. The reason I separated the passage (it continues from the previous one) is that, although it does not deal specifically with

  5. Truth right in front of you. 4344 81% of Minnesota COVID-19 Deaths Are from Nursing Homes Q!!Hs1Jq13jV6 28 May 2020 - 11:39:13 AM https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2020/05/21/nursing-homes-residents-account-for-81-of-covid-19-deaths-in-minnesota-but-state-still-allows-facilities-to-admit-covid-19-positive-patients/ The truth is right in front of you.

  6. Just to make clear what all this means, here is how I predict it will play out, at least in part. Currently, the tech giants still have their platform liability shield in place. But, shortly (if not already in the works), the DOJ or a private citizen or some entity is going to sue one of the Social Media Tech Giants (or more) for a specific instance of acting outside the bounds of platform protection, for abusing its legal standing, and ask, judicially, that the social media platform be recognized in the courts as a publisher, with all the legal liability that entails. This will

  8. Yes, William. Probable factors which this article points to. "Africa is an outlier". The latest figures I have for the continent of AFRICA are: 124,733 infections/ 3,700 deaths. May 13. Three months since original infection/transmission. So pray tell how the "model" WHO has concocted can possibly predict 250, 000,000 infections in Africa? And expect anyone to swallow their Gospel? https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=2ahUKEwij5I7Xx9fpAhXLSsAKHW33CpYQFjAQegQIChAB&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.theafricar

  9. The W.H.O must be made culpable, cut off and discredited. Recent headline on the News: "WHO predicts there could be 250 million cases of CV 19 on the African continent in the next year". (From a total pop. 1.2 billion?) This is irresponsible and bad science, at least, if not panic-mongering. Infections in African countries have relatively remained very low, for whatever causes - less population density, low initial infections, I guess, and others. But such reports keep the people submissive and fuel state power-grabs here. These are the 'experts' who purport to have global "health" a
