  • Commented on Decision Fatigue
    Renewables + a lot of storage can be sufficient to run most of a civilization. Whether such a solution's economically feasible raises the question "Should life-essential services be optimized for maximum profit?", I suggest the answer is "No"....
  • Commented on Decision Fatigue
    Ha!...
  • Commented on Decision Fatigue
    It amuses me to characterize the super sized pick ups as "My very own monster truck!"....
  • Commented on Decision Fatigue
    Closest thing to that would be a Ford Maverick hybrid, which gets that sort of mileage, though the bed's on the short side....
  • Commented on Strong and Stable!
    I suspect a part of the eligible but unregistered issue is "Bothsiderism", where the more...excitable reactionaries are compared to long dead southern Democrats, etc. . There's also the divided loyalties of elected politicians, between the interests of their campaign contributors...
  • Commented on Strong and Stable!
    I have mixed feelings about the election, pleased that my Representative, Emmanuel Cleaver, MO 5, won, pleased that cannabis has been legalized. Disappointed we still have two (Formerly)* GOP Senators. *The legislature has been redrawing MO 5 to include more...
  • Commented on Strong and Stable!
    You make a good point, in my, decades ago, church experience, there was always at least a few who took the gospels seriously, but they were never a majority....
  • Commented on Strong and Stable!
    Ignoring, for a moment,the dead cat on the table aspect, one could get the impression that "Fundagelicals" don't believe in the judgement day they preach about, which, if real would suggest the whole matter is Someone Else's Problem. I suspect...
  • Commented on Strong and Stable!
    EC @497, on further thought, why shouldn't they focus on the 99%? The well off are infinitely better able to manage. Further, consider the consequences of throwing the whole thing out, rather than doing actual work adapting policy to changing...
  • Commented on Strong and Stable!
    This may be somewhat relevant to the original topic: https://pluralistic.net/2022/10/27/economism/ The ideology described seems more like a "Mammonite" creed than a science, an effort to put a "Sciencey" shine on what their patrons wanted....
  • Commented on Strong and Stable!
    Irony in that....
  • Commented on Strong and Stable!
    Sounds about right, though it's difficult for me to believe that earlier incarnation of labour would've committed a Charlie Foxtrot of this magnitude....
  • Commented on Strong and Stable!
    The earliest example of governing for the benefit of party members only I can think of would be Ronald Reagan's cutting California's higher education budget, in reaction to protests, and Thatcher must've been aware of that. It wouldn't surprise me...
  • Commented on Strong and Stable!
    Was there not a time when Tory policy was more nuanced than what's been on exhibit for the last forty years? Our Republicans sold their soul* over half a century ago to break FDR's New Deal coalition, and they've not...
  • Commented on Strong and Stable!
    I won't ask you to expand on that, but I'm guessing the mundane reason would be health insurance. The science fiction reason would be the prospect of human cloning meets hard core Mammonites, resulting in (Artificial) human trafficking*. *As depicted...
  • Commented on Strong and Stable!
    Given the purge of BREXIT non believers, unlikely to be a keeper in the lot of them....
  • Commented on Strong and Stable!
    But will it be far enough away from the New Madrid fault? Next big shake due soon, last one reportedly rang church bells in Washington, DC....
  • Commented on I can't even
    Given the dubious joy of replacing those rear plugs, eroded by 14 years of high voltage, I suggest new plugs. A drop of light/penetrating oil at the base of each plug the day before you change them may make the...
  • Commented on I can't even
    Looks like someone else is considering a relatively simple EV: https://www.citroen.co.uk/about-citroen/concept-cars/citroen-oli.html Being a concept car, no telling how much of this sees production, but good ideas....
  • Commented on I can't even
    Sorry, didn't feel a need to spell it out. A speculation, is "Drumph's" issue with soft power the result of conflating it with impotence?...
  • Commented on I can't even
    Like a dog, they wish to wash away the odor of competing authority and replace it with their own....
  • Commented on I can't even
    To continue, the Biden administration is doing what a hypothetical Labour administration would be occupied by on your side of the world, trying to repair the web of understandings and agreements that the previous administration savaged because they had been...
  • Commented on I can't even
    Also attempting to weaken what might be taken as an attempt hasten the transition of the (Sometimes) United States to single party authoritarianism, the GOP would try to ride an oil price increase to Congressional majorities next month....
  • Commented on I can't even
    EVs are already reasonably priced, for those whose compensation has kept up with inflation, for others, not so much. Inflation corrected prices for EVs seem comparable, for me, to premium priced small cars from around 1980, and much more capable,...
  • Commented on I can't even
    Concerning the apparent desire of conservatives to be "Big fish" even at the cost impoverishing their nation, I think you've hit on something that applies outside the U.K. as well. The "GQP" custom of abandoning treaties negotiated by Democrats, or...
  • Commented on I can't even
    If the storage tech sufficiently manifests in the real world, while I'm still "This side of the grass",it will bother me not at all....
  • Commented on I can't even
    The contemporary Labour party looks to be a semi-sane center right party already, though I doubt escapees from the once conservative party could mind their manners....
  • Commented on Necroqueen!
    Just a thought, the different results of the Marshall plan and post Soviet Russia might be partially explained by New Dealers and Russia enjoying the dubious blessing of a plan managed by neoliberals....
  • Commented on London Bridge
    James Hilton thought so also, see "Lost Horizon"....
  • Commented on Necroqueen!
    In other words, returning to the borders as they were, pre-Putin, and abandoning the dream of restoring "The prison house of nations"....
