    Universal Basic Income is Not a Solution

    Universal basic income. If even Elon Musk says it’s the only option, it must great, right? It sounds really like utopia came true: everybody is entitled to receive free money no questions asked, no strings attached. And we could all afford this because production would be so cheap thanks to automation, and there would be no jobs left for humans thanks to automation. We are being told the same story over and over – automation is coming and it will make you useless. You are not part of the automation, which is why you are not in charge of making decision for yourself. So listen to this bunch of successful…

    Kids try Turkey Leg for the First Time at Universal Orlando

    Let’s try our first turkey leg. How much do you think it weighs? 20 pounds? About 6 pounds? No that’s yours. That’s yours. I think it smells like… French toast! Pizza! And, what are you going to do with this the rest of the day? Probably eat it. I don’t know where I’d put it though. Maybe in your pocket? Who would like to have this at Thanksgiving dinner? If I could share it with somebody… …I would share it with my Dad. (I would) probably share it with my Dad. My Dad. My Dad because he would eat it all. I’d probably share it with my best friend. This…

    What if the South Won the American Civil War?

    The Civil War was the most devastating conflict in America’s history. Roughly 640,000 Americans died in the four-year fighting between the Union and Confederates which eventually resulted in a Southern defeat, keeping the United States, well, United. But what if in an alternate timeline, the South won the Civil War? “What?” many ask. “What would even be the outcome had the Confederates [won]? “What would be the possible scenarios of a Southern victory?” Well, dear viewer, stop interrupting me; it’s quite rude. That is what this video is about. By looking at facts and historical events, we can get a few rough ideas about what this Confederate independence might look…

What would the confederacy of today actually look like to begin with? The same 11 states that were part of the old confederacy would be part of this new one as well, Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia Florida, Tennessee,…

    What we don’t know about the voter ID amendment

    On November 6th Minnesotans will vote on whether to amend the state Constitution. And one of the proposed amendments will change how future Minnesota elections work. It’s called the Voter ID amendment. Right now, you don’t need a photo identification card in order to cast a ballot. The amendment would change that. If it passes, it would make a number of other changes to the voting system, too — but we won’t find out how they’ll work until sometime next year. The amendment creates several requirements. But either the Legislature, the courts or both will decide how to implement them. Let’s start with the requirements. The question you’ll see on…

    FEDERALIST No. 8 The Consequences of Hostilities Between the States From the New York Packet. Tuesday, November 20, 1787. HAMILTON To the People of the State of New York: ASSUMING it therefore as an established truth that the several States, in case of disunion, or such combinations of them as might happen to be formed out of the wreck of the general Confederacy, would be subject to those vicissitudes of peace and war, of friendship and enmity, with each other, which have fallen to the lot of all neighboring nations not united under one government, let us enter into a concise detail of some of the consequences that would attend…

    The Law of Democracy [No. 86]

    So one of the oddities of the US Constitution is how little it has about the mechanics of ah the democratic process itself. There are some rules. Ah we know, for example, that the states uh are going to decide for themselves how to do districts, how to conduct elections, what the voter qualifications are going to be, subject to uh Congress’ uh ability to pass supervening legislation regarding the governance of of federal elections. Uh but that’s not a lot, that doesn’t tell us how districts are going to be formed. We do know a very important thing, which is how often elections are going to be, and that…
