Power and wealth, not principle, thus the Saudi princes, Harvey Weinsteins and Bill Clintons of the world can and do rape. Power and wealth, not principle, thus Israeli-Neocons can and do mass murder, eternal war. We citizens need to re-establish the rule of law, to take back our government :


The world of technology and materials science continues to astound. This is a brilliant insight :


Data is available, it is the lowest-cost way of producing revenue, so every institution uses it. To fix the problem, make data about individuals owned by the individual, not the collector of the information :
