"Hadn't thought of the NRA being related to military contractors in that way. And I didn't know about proportion of GDP shrinking."

THOSE WHO DON'T VOTE DON"T GET A SAY

Posted on November 8, 2018 at 2:30pm 3 Comments

So many people I know (mostly on the left) complain about politics, but refuse to vote or realistically participate in the electoral process. Some believe that protesting (without voting) is sufficient. I think that's silly. Generally, protesting is a way to show elected politicians (or businesses) that a large number of their constituents (or customers) are angry and want things to change. Its a basically a short-cut, a way to tell stakeholders that they will suffer serious consequences…

Locked-into high, per-existing industrial/manufacturing processes, and industrial mobilization, its very hard and…

In 1992, leading national scholar Francis Fukayama wrote "The End of History and the Last Man." In it, the author claimed that capitalism and western democracy won the ideological "battle royale" of the 20th century, and was now the "last man standing" without any contenders. All the other ideologies, such as monarchical imperialism (Ottomans, Czars, Hapsburgs), fascism, Nazism, Communism had been defeated and relegated to the so-called "dustbin of history."

Other historians said that…
