  1. I loved his appearance on I think it was morning joe. ”the us wasted 1.5 trillion in Afghanistan war while China has been building their infrastructure.”
  2. @Johnny even if it is is propaganda, what’s wrong with cutting carbon emissions and transitioning aggressively towards new and renewable energies that don’t cause planetary degradation or destruction of ecosystems. Sure the scientists could have it wrong, but I think the real propaganda is thinking that the status quo is okay and nothing needs to change.
  3. @Andrew Rogers as leo says... ALL of politics is voting to redistribute resources. What do you tell people under imminent domain when the government builds a new road or football stadium. Is that robbery? No taxes aren’t theft that’s a shortsighted argument, you overlook the Social contract, if there was no social contract and I still had to pay taxes I wouldn’t like that, but it’s an exchange, and an exchange you won’t get out of and a silly topic to argue about. lets argue about where our taxes would go and how redistributing those taxes would benefit society. you don’t have to “steal” anyone’s money if you fix the system designed to NOT redistribute unfairly and unequally in the first place. billionaires used to effectively be taxed out of existence in the USA in the FDR era (a very economically equal period, social issues aside). and now there are numerous amounts of them. billionaires should be taxed out of existence. workers should get higher wages and a percentage of profits in other benefits. if that seems radical to you then you’re part of the problem.
  4. @Leo Gura watched this and laughed when yang attacked him when he said a federal jobs guarantee does more than a ubi. In an ideal world I want both. i don’t think a federal jobs guarantee is “indentured servitude” because it’s not like you’d be forced to work, it would just be an option right? i am very worried about the plans and how we’d get them passed with Moscow Mitch in office, however, I think Bernie winning the election would be so much of a miracle that getting those things passed would have a domino effect. It really is a great movement and it’s refreshing to see a candidate so honest and in touch with people. He literally goes the picket lines and scream with people. It’s inspiring.
  5. I think the problem with gmos is Not really known to science yet. I watched a video on this forum talking about consuming GMOs can actually alter your dna in a bad way, I don’t remember it but it was something about helix structures. Maybe in rare cases it could be safe but I don’t think the science is complete yet.
  6. @Serotoninluv most arguments I see online go along the lines of “ that business man has worked hard and earned that profit, taxing him and giving it to the poor is literally theft.” I personally think being a billionaire is immoral but beside the point it’s hard to get to that level of wealth without devilry. are there good and kind billionaires yes in theory but hoarding all that money is dangerous. It doesn’t do anyone any good besides to reinforce a class structure. unfortunately communism is what is demonized, and while state ownership of everything would be too extreme for this day in age, I would like to see how it could be implemented in an extremely highly conscious society. I think capitalism works so well because it promotes greed which is rampant at stage orange, like The point Leo made on his Venezuela blog that socialism could only work in a green + society. and then in his chart of political systems on the spiral, world government is yellow, something about world government screams communism esque, but the good parts of it. the best way to have a thriving economy is to have income equality, and it would be radical but it could work with the right consciousness.

  8. Yea man I think we should throw it all into space. The stuff that can’t be biodegraded and recycled. He also says that like 90% of potentially recycled materials aren’t being recycled. I really don't see the downside to it. How could you pollute space?
  9. Yea absolutely. I mean I think this a position that should be taken seriously. There is like very minimal downside to it. It would cost $$$ but think of what you’d save.
  10. Hey all, been reading the forum for a while now and excited to finally post. So I subscribe to YouTuber called Meta Sage and definitely identify him as a stage turquoise+ individual. Basically this video is a criticism of pollution and of stage orange capitalism. What caught my attention was the solution he has for all of this which he words in two brilliant questions. Now I’m no scientist and the ethics of these proposals/statement are up for debate but logically it makes sense to me. #1. What if we could turn waste (any type) into literal currency? #2 Why don’t we launch our waste into the outer atmosphere aka space instead of burying it? (Non recyclables) ...”space is literally made to occupy junk” haha, this will also incentivize space conscious society and could potentially help attract alien life. Sage and I may be way wrong in this question but I’d like to hear some perspectives on this and why it’s not seriously considered today? Here is the video
