simple truths can be very powerful and we consider them to be self evident…üther

“Latest discovery of brain research shows, quiet  stunning facts about “what is the brain”.

Our brain is not solely defined by genes.

You can also not train it like a muscle.

It is way simpler.

Our brain becomes for whatever we use it for with enthusiasm.”

auto translated from blurb of this book:

Humans ain’t perfect, thus all human made systems will contain errors, thus all (man made) governmental systems are flawed and are in need of constant improvement.

Bismarck had a distinct distrust in democracy and favored monarchy.

But show me a good king?

There have been so many bad kings.

Because power corrupts, absolute power seems to corrupt even more.

So monarchy ain’t perfect, Democracy ain’t perfect, what will come next?

The next step for democracy can not be to go back to monarchy.

But to reinvent democracy in a positive (for everybody), creative, productive, fair, just and job creating way.

New forms of democracy need to be locally tested, and yes, maybe some countries are “too big” for democracy to function properly, then test new forms of democracy on smaller community (local) levels.

Whatever comes after democracy, the goal of every form of government, should be, to create a decision making process of maximum competence.

This is exactly, what (corrupted money driven) democracies (currently) fail at, they fail at making competent decisions for the good of all.

Not Zombies eat Brains

Money does!

what this means:

there are just as many stupid super rich

as are there stupid super poor

(but the super poor show up on TV, not the super rich, they want to stay anonymous and hide their wealth in panama (a tax haven))

if those that are highly intelligent, do not earn more, than those that are stupid, there will be mass stupidity.

Neither Einstein nor Nikola Tesla (both genius in their fields of expertise (physics and electricity)) became very rich in this system.

Even worse Nikola Tesla died poor and lonely in a f***ing hotel.

“On 7 January 1943, at the age of 86, Tesla died alone in Room 3327 of the Hotel New Yorker. His body was later found by maid Alice Monaghan after she had entered Tesla’s room, ignoring the “do not disturb” sign that Tesla had placed on his door two days earlier.”

At leat Elon Musk knew how to market a genius ;-p

(but he was as hard working as lucky selling his first internet startup to compaq for $10million, then founding PayPal selling it to eBay for $1billion, funding tesla and spacex (both very high risk companies))
