I thought it was interesting how these 2 sentences were juxtaposed.
"Google Pay–piling pressure on bitcoin developers to improve user experience and adoption or face redundancy."
Oh no! Google making a banking product with a good user experience! How ever will BitCoin compete?
"Google’s planned bank account, code-named Cache and expected to allow users to add Google’s analytic tools to traditional banking products" 🤨
Perhaps Google Will Kill Bitcoin, After All
PayPal is wide awake and has a will of its own.
@aaronjmate: "Roger Stone was found guilty on charges stemming from his false claim of a Wikileaks backchannel. In reality, he had none. Let that sink in: the top proponents of Trump-Russia-Wikileaks "collusion" are now pretending that this verdict doesn't undermine their conspiracy theory."

Former President Barack Obama fired all ambassadors appointed by former President George W. Bush in 2008. Under the U.S. Constitution, the president has the authority to fire any ambassador for any reason. https://dailycaller.com/2019/11/15/flashback-obama-fires-bush-ambassadors/ …

Scrapping private schools is just the stupidest thing I've ever heard. Labour are saying that poor people should pay for part of the education of rich kids.
I find it ironic that part this idea of coherent enlightenment is "the death of God", as proclaimed be Nietzsche. Religion is viewed as a foolish attempt to explain everything, to force coherence. And now we look back and laugh at how stupid we were. But religion is actually an attempt to achieve completeness. And it's existence is incompatible with coherence.
I think part of the problem is it feels like as a civilization we really are reaching that perfect coherence. We have discovered and connected everyone in the world, we have uncovered all the fundamental particles of physics, liberal democracy and supernational institutions are the approaching the final form of political structure. There is no more mystery, there is no more dragons off the edge of the map, the map is complete.
Exhibit A. Thank you @HiroProtagonist for your impeccable timing.
In a weird way, the idea of clown world is like a rebuke of the enlightenment. When activists try to make sure everything is "inclusive", they do so by sanitizing and controlling the environment. They act like they already know how to produce the utopia, and all it requires is your compliance. Clown world is a giant "fuck you" to this vision. It highlights the inherit chaos and nonsense of this bullshit. we are entering post-enlightenment.
