Re: Assange Watch

2), Assuming it does fail, it remains to be seen how long Assange lives following release. Are you asking that because he appears so psychologically and physically broken, or because you think the US will try to assassinate him? The US might not but one of their lickspittles may try. I rather hope ...

Re: Why it is so hard to talk about collapse. And we desperately need to talk about it.

UE, have you read any of Rutger Bregman's books? They're pretty honest although a tad optimistic. No, I will look him up. EDIT: OK, I looked him up. Utopia for Realists: How We Can Build the Ideal World[13] promotes a more productive and equitable life based on three core ideas which include a univ...

On your question, you should write the book. It's a central point that should be explored. Go for it!

Re: New coronavirus in/from China

Has anyone who posts here had it yet? I visited Yorkshire last Christmas, came back with something weird - not a cold or flu, but bits of each, lots of phlegm, desperately short of energy. Not fully 100% even now. At least one of my relatives was in contact with someone who'd been to Wutan. My 38-y...

Lead authoring that paper was for me an expression of admitting to myself that I couldn't heal that rift in realism. Well done for accepting that. I remember arguing against you for this very reason. I could never see how you'd involve the whole population in what is quite a complex, technocratic s...

However to your question. I will pass it right back! Why do you need a border in Ireland? Me? :D I don't. If I had my way, there would be no such thing as borders. How will taxation, representation and democracy work with no borders? Genuine question. Obviously, I'm not clever enough to devise a be...
