Debate Central / Universal Basic Income?
« on: December 08, 2018, 01:03:11 PM »
I use to be against Universal Basic Income (UBI) when I was younger because I felt people would not be motivated to work.  After years of studying the impact of robotics, automation, and artificial intelligence, and seeing the huge divergence between Wage vs. GDP, I've come to realize that UBI is a pragmatic solution to address the looming crisis of 30% labor job lost due to automation and AI.  The way I see it, you either pay people to not be disruptive or pay them to be productive.  I would rather do the latter and have a productive society.  Btw, I am not a social democrat and I am a classical liberal.  The way I have come resolve the notion of stealing private property from the rich to give to the poor comes from Andrew Yang.  He sees UBI as a form of dividend payout.  If the country is doing well, everyone gets a payout.  This type of thinking is perfectly OK because it incentivizes ALL people to hold each other accountable. This system exists in a corporate structure because shareholders who DO NOTHING are given the biggest $$ at the end of the year.  As a citizen, I have OWNERSHIP of the country.  This also resolves the current looming crisis of immigrants who don't care about America by incentivizing immigrants to become a citizen and to love the country they benefit from.

Debate Central / Heart and Mind

If we had to choose/select, how would you select?

A pile of Cash or Supportive Spouse?

A King in a War-Torn Civil War or A Farmer with a Loving Family living in peaceful time?

God of the Desolated Universe or Servant?

These are some thought experiments.  Why if you care to share.

Faith & Beliefs / Love
« on: November 25, 2018, 03:28:08 PM »
1 Cor 13:2 If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing.

Perhaps one of the greatest verse because it prioritized love above all else: prophecy, knowledge, wisdom, faith, truth, and work.

I'm off the plantation too!

1) Owner Bees - Bankers/Old Money - DOES NOTHING BUT EATS ALL THE HONEY.
2) Information Bees (Queen/King Bees) - CEO/Executives/Influencers - TELL WORKERS BEES TO WORK FOR OWNERS SO THEY MAINTAIN THEIR STATUS/CONTROL.
3) Workers Bees (Slaves) - ALL OF US - DO ALL THE WORK BUT GET NO HONEY.

Debate Central / Freedom and Innovation

What did people think when Voltaire starting writing very promiscuous and provocative stories?  The powers at be tried to silence Voltaire.  Did you know without Voltaire's mind, it is unlikely we would have the work of the great enlightenment?  Without Voltaire and his openness to offend the status quote, there would never ever be a democracy.  The very thing LGBTQ, Black, Minorities, and etc... need is freedom of expression.  When freedom of expression is taken away, what's to stop the PC police to subverted by another group like fundamentalist and then the minority will be enslaved again.  Freedom is absolutely necessary to ensure the survival of all expression.  My culture is an expression.  Your desire is an expression.  Your sexual orientation is an expression.  Take that away and what do you have?  You will be regulated by the government.  Who's to stop us from returning back to the system Voltaire grew up in?  A system without freedom of speech?  Freedom of speech is the cornerstone of democracy and America.  In addition, in emergence theory of socialization processes, freedom of speech is the greatest enabler of innovation.  Innovation is what propels our society forward.  It is why we have cars, Internet, etc...  In case you have never heard of Voltaire, he's one of the greatest philosophers of western civilization.

Megan Kelly got what she deserved.  People never trust flip-floppers.  She was just a political that her use is over, she's done.

Debate Central / Right Action vs Judgement
« on: October 04, 2018, 06:31:01 PM »
We live in a society where a mob of people sit and wait for when someone screws up and they pile on that you ducked up royally and should be punished heavily for ducking up.  Although I agree with holding someone accountable for their actions I believe that RIGHT ACTIONS of individuals are worth far more than JUDGING OTHER'S WRONG ACTION.  We live in a society that leans on judging the wrong action and lean less on doing the right action, and this has to change.

What are right actions?  Right actions are doing the right thing based on sound reasoning, moral and ethics.  Right actions are teaching people how to act correctly within society.  Right actions are empowering people to do the right things.

What are not right actions (wrong action)?  Wrong actions are judging.  Why is this judging with no right action a wrong action?  A society only improves when more right actions are done and there are less wrong actions.  Talking about right actions are not action.  Teaching right action is the right action.  How else can you educate, nurture proper right actionable behavior in society?  We can talk about the right action for eternity and if no one practices the right action and only talk about right action, what's the value in society?  Nothing.  More importantly, it is especially important to discern those who talk about right action and then don't do right action.  These people are HYPOCRITES!  Take for example the people of HOLLYWOOD.  Hollywood celebrity will give lip service about woman's right only to take profit from selling women sexuality to men!  MEDIA will talk about crimes against the common man but don't mind profiting from violent media, and movies that promote and propel violent behavior in society.  Unless our society shifts away from judging the wrong action and talking about the right action in a society where we continually conduct more right actions than wrong actions, our society will never shift.  We will continue to decline in innovation, in freedom, in expression, in prosperity, and pretty much all categories.

Edmund Burke said, “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”

Such is the society we live in today; far too many wrong action people are in control and far too many right action people do not have the courage to speak up.

Debate Central / Supreme Court Favors Baker In Refusal To Same Sex

How do someone decide religious freedom (freedom of speech) vs. discrimination?  Freedom of speech or is this a case of discrimination?  Where do freedom of speech ends and discrimination start?  The supreme court ruled 7-2 in favor of freedom of speech over discrimination .

Debate Central / No Borders! No Nation! Chanting...

I'm concern about such chants...  Should America have borders?  Should America be a sovereign nation?

Any country without border is not a country.
