Yes, I've figured a logical use of LJ might be to let people comment easily on my stuff, while keeping my actual permanent stuff under my domainname and control.

hi there
I like your site. you are an interesting person.

I am a determinist and i am a socialist/libertarian. I consumed hundreds of hours of Noam Chomsky in audio format. I did not catch whether you are a capitalist-libertarian or not, but it doesn't matter because I just want to give my opinion and hear your thoughts.

I think human intelligence is wasted in capitalist society.

The real problem will be the preservation of the species. We almost had nuclear winter (either that or terminal nuclear war) just a few decades ago, and nobody even found out about it until this decade. ttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vasiliy_Arkhipov


I am not strictly a moralist, but I think if we're building a society, the real moral choice we should all make, is whether or not we as a species should see it as a moral imperative to build/create a society without unnecessary evils like starvation, for example. (We can build from there). If you haven't begun researching and evaluating that choice to the best of your ability, you can't claim to be a moral person.

So long as humans have existed, society has been designed to serve the interests of the few. As a very rough approximation, the top 5% might own and control 90% of the wealth and resources. They therefore have 100% control over all the "determinants" in the culture, so they can predict what people will do before they even choose to do it. They therefore have ultimate say in every single thing that happens, and they know it. But they do nothing to stop terrible things from happening.


I'd really like to come and meet you eventually.
