Greta Thunberg has been told to get an economics degree to be taken serious. Yet, going through years of some education may brainwash you into believing that the only way to do business is the old one.

There are sciences, which are pure and do not relate to current affairs but those decisions that need to be made in relation to climate change are actually not calculated on pure science but on the greed of those wanting to make profits.

Having listened to the Grenfell discussion on ‘politics live’ this morning, we’ve heard that some tower blocks are not so dangerous as they have night patrols. The answer was that many leaseholders cannot afford to pay for it.

Private ownership again hinders progress being made. Of course owning something privately means you rely entirely on your own resources. The smaller the building the less economical can it be to share and spread costs and if a private building owner has to replace a load of cladding on a building it becomes unaffordable.

Nobobdy questions the principle of private ownership, they question why the government hasn’t yet introduced laws to force owners to change the cladding. But this is a Conservative government, a government that supports private ownership.

Question the logic of this.

I don’t think there is a pure state in existance today that has a properly installed community government.

  • North Korea, is a kind of family tyranny, that starves it’s population but which tries to blow our planet apart with constant nuclear testing
  • China, a half-capitialist government, which is unelectable and relies on trade with capitalist countries
  • Russia, a pseudo communist country that charges a flat tax rate to all, regardless of income. Nothing is being shared around there.

This planet is being run into the ground by large money accumulators who run business and produce goods that keep us in employment, the economy moving and make them richer.

The poor have no choice but to work in jobs being offered as they have to work to be part of an acceptable community, which relies on taxes.

Round and round and round it goes.

People ask again and again why didn’t the German’s stop Hitler, ask yourself, why does nobody stop the destruction of the environment.

 

looking after you

Just watching Reggie in China and it is quite amazing, the film about Shenzen, when the guy says: “we can’t wait for the old building to be pulled down because we want to see progress [sic]. The government will look after us and give us another place to stay until the new building is ready”.

So these people don’t have to spend hours and days and weeks looking for alternative acommodation and can go on deveoping brilliant new ideas instead.

The government quickly changed all public transport to electric and China has developed to the second largest economy.  Things get done very quickly there because the money is being made available centrally without much fuss.

Looking at the new technology they do, soon the world will be mapped in 3D and nothing will be hidden. Back to the old village atmosphere when everybody knows everything about everybody, just not by rumour mill but via CCTV surveillance.

I like it that robots will be used to recall data instead of a human having to memorize data because it uses too much brain capacity and there is not enough space left for creativity if we use all our brain for memorizing things.

A Chinese inventor believes that the world will be ruled by technology instead of by politicians. It’s probably much quicker to get Brexit done then, if that is appropriate.
