Nick Bostrom, Longtermism, and the Eternal Return of Eugenics
The techno-utopian ideology gets its fuel, in part, from scientific racism.

Ginsberg’s Theorem:

  1. You can’t win. (restatement of first law of thermodynamics)
  2. You can’t break even. (restatement of second law of thermodynamics)
  3. You can’t even get out of the game. (restatement of third law of thermodynamics)

Freeman’s Commentary on Ginsberg’s Theorem states that “Every major philosophy that attempts to make life seem meaningful is based on the negation of one part of Ginsberg’s Theorem.”

  1. Capitalism is based on the assumption that you can win.
  2. Socialism is based on the assumption that you can break even.
  3. Mysticism is based on the assumption that you can quit the game.
What could possibly go wrong?

Last one for today, but I really thought this one would be appreciated here because I know that a lot of you admire Hitchens as I do, but I am no longer a devout "apostate" and follower as I was in the 90s when I thought the gravest danger to our Republic was the separation of church and state...wow has that notion changed.  When there is very little church even left and where religiousity is equated with Neanderthalism or domestic terrorism in mainstream society it kinda deflates the danger in that now, innit?  And mind you this comes from someone who has never been a part of any religion in my entire life, agnostic wire to wire.  Anyway the intellectual giant; Sir Christopher Hitchens:
