Yes, the world wide web contains a lot of misinformation. But this is what one Niccolò Perotti wrote to his friend Francesco Guarnerio in 1471, a twenty-odd years after Gutenberg's invention (quoted in Robert Darnton, The Case for Books, 2009, pp. xiv-xv):

Whenever I talk with people into chemtrails, flat earth, or other conspiracies, I'm struck by how appealing a worldview with a "them" must be. If only we could stop "them!" As dark as those worldviews are, it is perhaps darker if there is no "them." That this world is just... us.

1/ The data that Chinese smart retail systems can capture from a single store is mind blowing.

Face recognition identifies new & return customers, estimates their age, gender and mood. Time spent in store and items looked at creating live store foot traffic heat maps.

Fascinating debate between an Austrian-school economist and Warren Mosler who's the father of MMT.

I've linked to the point where Mosler describes what gives fiat currency value. Instead of being asset backed, it's essentially backed by threat/violence.

How often have you heard the argument that driving a car kills birds used against driving cars?
Then you should hear the argument of bird deaths used against wind turbines about 700 times less.

"Deep-shipwreck is among the world's most dangerous sports. Few other endeavors exist in which nature, biology, equipment, instinct, and object conspire [...] to so completely attack a man's mind and disassemble his spirit. Many dead divers have been found inside shipwrecks with more than enough air remaining to have made it to the surface. It is not that they chose to die, but rather that they could no longer figure out how to live." - Shadow Divers by Robert Kurson
