Aaron looks at the recent Paris terror attacks and gives his opinions on media reaction to it. Reactionary is a good word to describe both mainstream and alternative media these days.

topics include: conspiracy culture, media, confusion, terror, memes, ideologies, wars, military, agendas, dialectic, taking sides, ISIS, fiction, television shows, predictive programming, no hard proof, memes, occult, Mother of the Mysteries, acronyms, fire and ice, Iraq, Al Sham, Syria, goddess, Nature, intangible, lack of proof, narratives, religion, crusade, anger, exploitation, Operation Iraqi Freedom, nation state, government, alchemy, Kali

The current working world has gone well beyond a rat race for most people. Hours worked and demands for results have only increased for individuals, and a corresponding increase in wages has not come. It seems we all will work ourselves into the ground at this rate, but what if a dramatic change is on the horizon? A sudden spike in unemployment due to automation and robotization is very likely. If such an event comes it could bring a serious economic upheaval and a crisis in the job market the likes of which has never been seen before. This may be dramatic enough to hasten in policies for Basic Income.

topics include: work, no leisure, stress, change, Larry Page, Google, 40 hour work week, machines, autonomous systems, robots, Time of Abundance, Ai, machine learning, Luddite, Ray Kurzweil, Singularity University, Silicon Valley, SRI, income, jobs, Basic Income, BIEN, government, policy, transhumanists, James Hughes, wage slaves, nanny state
