GIGO....and these days, there is plenty of garbage to be utliized. In fact, one can imagine the implosion of the fake reality that is the internet. The fraud is most evident in commerce. For instance more often than not, advertisement for commercial and consumer products do not meet the letter of the consumer fraud laws we reigned a few years ago. They are deliberately misleading. However "People still buy from people" and one can imagine that the various philosopher kings/idiot savants that know everything about their respective fields (cars, clothing, fiction, laptops, bathroom fixtures) will be summoned up online to make decisions for us. The Amazons and Walmarts will flood these experts with the various brands available pleading to get a passing grade. This might extend into politics too - after all that is the essence of a republic govt, the best one developed thus far.
My blood just boils with this 'new' technology. To me 'IT' eliminates the need for people to use their 'brains'. A 'lazy' kind of mentality is, in my view, going to be the demise of those who seek higher education. The article on how UKR had educated their people in the maths & science higher than any other country in Europe (your last article) paid off in spades for UKR. THIS kind of technology, to me, is counter productive. Journalism also is already a victim of 'stealing source info' by internet providers aka Google, etc.
A lot of research nicely communicated in one concise column - thanks.
Mad Max and his nuclear arsenal is right. There are some who argue Biden and his advisers are made weak kneed by the mad Putin's constant threat of using nuclear arsenal BUT that would end him and his mafia so well call his bluff and send Ukraine much more powerful weapons. Any thoughts in this Diane?
Very interesting as always. Very informative
Yes dilemma. But maybe time for calling Mad Max's bluff?
