Download Physical Objects To Your 3D Printer

In the future, you will be able to pirate everything. Pirate Bay has a new category called Physibles, for pirating tangible objects — think designer furniture, fashion accessories, et cetera — with the help of a 3D printer:

We believe that the next step in copying will be made from digital form into physical form. We decided to call them: Physibles. We believe that things like three dimensional printers, scanners and such are just the first step. We believe that in the nearby future you will print your spare parts for your vehicles. You will download your sneakers within 20 years.

The benefit to society is huge. No more shipping huge amount of products around the world. No more child labour. We’ll be able to print food for hungry people. We’ll be able to share not only a recipe, but the full meal. We’ll be able to actually copy that floppy, if we needed one.

Apparently there are a group of people who believe a government machine called HAARP (High-frequency Active Auroral Research Program) controls the weather. Here's what some of these people have to say about this recent round of tornados. Who do you believe?

BP has agreed to pay an estimated $7.8 billion to settle lawsuits brought against the company by businesses and individuals in the wake of the 2010 Deepwater Horizon disaster. The disaster, which caused around 205 million gallons of oil to spew into the Gulf of Mexico, had widespread economic and health impacts on local communities. The estimated compensation, which is not capped, includes provisions for $2.3 billion to bolster the region’s seafood industry and $105 million to improve available health care in the impacted communities. The Washington Post reports that under the agreement, BP also agrees to provide medical consultations for the next 21 years for those with spill-related health complaints.

Quote:
THE INVOLUNTARY CONSPIRACY

By Attorney Alex Wallenwein
September 5, 2002
NewsWithViews.com

Okay, so maybe there isn’t a consciously planned conspiracy to subject the world to a one world government. But consider whether there may be such a thing as a "sub-conscious conspiracy."

What nonsense! How can there be a conspiracy that is subconscious, when the very meaning of the word implies a conscious design to do something, right?

But consider the possibility that there is such a commonality of essential flaws in human nature that makes it appear, from the outside, that there is an active, conscious, and purposeful conspiracy at work. So then, what is human nature? To what extent is human thinking, and therefore action, driven by ego? And what is ego, if it is not the potentially unrestrained drive towards more and more individual power?

If we are willing to be honest with ourselves, we can witness this tendency, and this process, in ourselves at the very smallest of levels - in our own personal interactions. (Sacrificing family, etc. to our own lust pattern which is built on - and builds - nothing more than the sense of ego power we get from having another sexual "conquest", etc.)

Alright. Now that we know what manner of silliness and downright callous destructiveness even we individually are capable of, extrapolate that tendency over the entire human race and picture in your mind a basically honest, moral person who, through diligence and hard work, has attained a certain level of political power in his lifetime.

Such a person is now confronted, and consistently interacts, almost exclusively with others like him or her. New bonds of friendship form, but also bonds of an implicit, unspoken level of "brotherhood", of commonality of interest among those who move in that rarefied world of power and influence.

One of the greatest human vices is our lust for approval from other humans who act , look, and think like us; from those whom we want to impress, those from whom we desire approval and acceptance, because it tickles our ego. Picture our imaginary subject now living in this world of power wielders, power grabbers, and power schemers, learning to regard these others like him as his new peers.

Human weakness being what it is, (as we have learned from our brief but honest self examination) the desire to boost our egos can easily eclipse our desire to protect even those who are closest to us, be they our own family, group, or nation.

http://www.disinfo.com/2012/03/presi...-transparency/

Josh Gerstein reports in the Politico:

President Barack Obama set a high bar for open government, and he set it quickly. A minute after he took office, the White House website declared his administration would become “the most open and transparent in history.” By the end of his first full day on the job, Obama had issued high-profile orders pledging “a new era” and “an unprecedented level of openness” across the massive federal government.

But three years into his presidency, critics say Obama’s administration has failed to deliver the refreshing blast of transparency that the president promised.

“Obama is the sixth administration that’s been in office since I’ve been doing Freedom of Information Act work. … It’s kind of shocking to me to say this, but of the six, this administration is the worst on FOIA issues. The worst. There’s just no question about it,” said Katherine Meyer, a Washington lawyer who’s been filing FOIA cases since 1978. “This administration is raising one barrier after another. … It’s gotten to the point where I’m stunned — I’m really stunned.”

http://www.thedaily.com/page/2012/03...ide-theft-1-4/

The Daily's M.L. Nestel cites law enforcement reports from across America describing a crime-wave of Tide detergent thefts, including claims that bottles of easily resellable, name-brand washing soap can be bartered for meth and heroin in Gresham, OR.

Tide has become a form of currency on the streets. The retail price is steadily high — roughly $10 to $20 a bottle — and it’s a staple in households across socioeconomic classes.

Tide can go for $5 to $10 a bottle on the black market, authorities say. Enterprising laundry soap peddlers even resell bottles to stores.

“There’s no serial numbers and it’s impossible to track,” said Detective Larry Patterson of the Somerset, Ky., Police Department, where authorities have seen a huge spike in Tide theft. “It’s the item to steal.”

Why Tide and not, say, Wisk or All? Police say it’s simply because the Procter & Gamble detergent is the most popular and, with its Day-Glo orange logo, most recognizable of brands

A Lawyer Who Is Also A Photographer Just Deleted All Her Pinterest Boards Out Of Fear

A woman named Kirsten decided to look into the legality of Pinterest. After all, she's a lawyer with a passion for photography.

What she found scared her so much, she shut down her Pinterest boards entirely.

Kirsten's investigation began after she saw photographers complaining about copyright violations on Facebook. She wondered why Facebook could get in trouble for copyright violation and Pinterest couldn't.

She browsed Pinterest's Terms of Use section. In it she found Pinterest's members are solely responsible for what they pin and repin. They must have explicit permission from the owner to post everything.

Quote:
Corporations can secede from you – The feudal corporate state

Corporations are essentially an organized gang with shared interests (in quite a few cases criminal) and these interests by definition do not include the interests of everyone outside the corporate entity. This makes the corporate person-hood a particularly insidious development in human history, especially now has become clear corporations have expanded numerically and in numbers as to challenge the sovereignty of state – and all private people. In other words – where organized gangs can fulminate their self-interests, and do so exclusively, there is a cross-over point where corporate interests become effectively unaccountable, irreversible and will keep on expending at everyone else’s expense.

Without much doubt this is where in 2012 we have arrived – we have a geopolitical order that is thoroughly and irreversibly corporatized. This makes the current new world order fiercely “plutocratic”, as well as social-darwinist meritocratic. We also see precisely that happen. The formation of states inside the state (and transgressing the state) would be bad in itself – the very idea is an organizational monstrosity evolved to secede from democratic and legal oversight. Corporations are by nature exclusivity engines.

Now something like this would have happened in some form, regardless of the development of the corporate. Humans compete, and if we regard “democratic states” as means to protect the vulnerable from predation by the powerful (formerly – European autocrats), then a new generation of competitive humans would soon emerge and work to find ways to harvest a greater share of collective fruits of labour.

The corporation as a national and transnational vessel just happened to work nicely because it filled a niche in the necessity model of modern states. But soon the pathologically ambitious caused the original corporate charter to escape any prudent boundaries of legal constraint and corporations became much like unaccountability machines. Right now states tread with caution not to be regarded unfavourable by the corporate sector. Corporations (and their tax dollars) can actually leave – and by having corporations walk away the state loses it’s seat on the beggar’s banquet of scraps falling from the oligarch banquet. This places the corporate entity in a very favourable negotiations position world-wide, and in an age of automation this will only get worse, well within the next decades

In the end the corporate can only evolve to become state-less and fully seceded from any accountability of states and citizens – this would be the age of what I’d label “full Singaporization”. In literary history we also called this “Cyberpunk Dystopia”, but it exemplified nothing short of a kind of fascism where a small number of people are “on the inside” of scarce resources, and everyone else lives in the gutter. When we have arrived at that point money as it exists today won’t be a consideration. The insiders will have their own means of exchanging value, probably a “non-fiat” denominational currency backed by actual property, and those without property won’t have any say in the matter, or any share in the new mechanism of transactions. When that happens unions nor politicians nor violent protest will make one iota of difference.

This is a very interesting read, and covers a very large concept. From: R U Sirius
