Orwellian word of the week: 'Densification.'

Sunday, September 30, 2018

In Victoria, the Greens, left leaning politicians and right leaning politicians have come together with Real Estate developers to develop a nice Orwellian slogan.  'The need for densification.'

According to the theory at least densification leads to lower carbon output, lowers home prices and even more theoretically releases the burden on the surrounding environment by having less single dwelling homes in the suburbs.

The theory of course completely ignores the elephant in the room, that defeats all of these and in fact utilizes this failed theory to cause even more destruction. 

The elephant of course is continuing increase in population, which in fact none of these politicians are willing to deal with or even discuss.  Higher population means higher carbon output, higher home prices and increases the burden on the surrounding environment by the sale of homes in the suburbs to non citizens.

Once again the modern politician shows lack of integrity, dishonesty and although I actually doubt it foolishness in the sense that these Machiavellians know full well that they are just in it for the money and power and don't really care about the issues they claim to care about, yet institute policies that are even more damaging in these regards.

All to ship tar to China

The Canadian Liberals are so swinishly and openly corrupt that it seems they have even surpassed Harper at this point if that was possible.

Green party leader Elizabeth May was arrested and fined $1500 in court for protesting the pipeline. 

These days might as well mean the end of any real sense of Democracy in Canada.

It is Plato's Republic full circle. Trudeau is the tyrant selling his own country off in a desperate bid to maintain power.

Why I Don't Trust Economists

Thursday, May 17, 2018

If you show an economist a forest and ask its value, your typical economist will reduce it to an approximate number. This abstract number is only tangible if for example the forest is cut down and its trees sold. Numbers are supposed to represent values, but in fact such a person has no values.

The Model of Growth as the Cause of War in Plato's Republic.

Sunday, April 1, 2018

In Plato's Republic Part II it is proposed that the expansion of a city is first a result of a communities' economic needs. Second needs turn to superfluous or extraneous desires for luxurious items the necessity of which are dubious to begin with.  It is this expansion which in turn leads to further requirements for excess farm production, which in turn requires the capturing of further lands through conquest and war.

Almost 2 and a half millennia ago the formula was already known.  We see this today.  Capitalism depends on wars, which in turn allows the consumption of ever growing cities to expand.  This can be seen in British Columbia with the Site C Dam.  Why do we need the dam?  The usual reason is an expanding population.  Rather than dealing with population the root of the problem, only the symptom which is further requirements of energy are addressed, which in turn means further environmental destruction: the flooding of vast natural and farm lands to secure even more energy.

This model is ultimately a slow motion train wreck as it has been for millennia, but pushed to breakneck speed with the industrial, technological and global revolutions.

ABOUT EBC

It wasn't long after 9/11, September 11, 2001, that I began this website. I felt compelled to connect with other people around the globe. I had recently heard about "weblogs" or "blogs" and I dove right into Blogger.com. I searched for others to connect with online and I found Ageless. It led to meeting many great friends to discuss events of the day. From then on it snowballed. Most importantly we offered one another support and friendship across the globe; finding that we were just a few keystrokes away.
