Unsettling Ideas

  1. I say that before one more bit of data gets collected by NSA, CIA et al. on private citizens & aliens that all data on all government employees including those in Congress & the judiciary gets published in an Internet available database. No exemptions allowed including the president.
  2. Why pay extra for healthy, un-fucked-with food which is increasing health care costs &/or making people unhealthy & dead?  Instead put an excise tax on unhealthy food & food production methods & tie that tax directly & only to research & conversion to healthy farming methods & phase outs for things which are unhealthy like e.g. twinkies & Monsanto corn.  Let me emphasize that this tax is never to be used as a slush fund or as part of the general fund like social security & other taxes are.
  3. Has anyone written an Owners Manual for the Human Body?  Even the health gurus like Dr. Oz & Dr. Weil et al seem to focus on diseases & obesity. Lets focus on vibrant health & leave crony government standards out of the picture & then produce one. 
  4. How Language Shapes the World - this one is fascinating because it supports a bit of Seth's position on language (I think) http://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=1483082 by Werner Erhard .  One has to download the pdf referenced .  It is a crude set of slides from which I presume he talked.  It is interesting.
  5. It would be interesting to analyze the "war on terror" with the PC phrase "man caused disaster" et al in the light of #4. Here is one article.

2. I don't think we want the government determining what is "unhealthy" food. 

3. I think there are many books on how to keep the body healthy and there are many different approaches.  Do you have some knowledge in that regard that stands above the rest?
Yes, to #2 - me neither.  That's part of the point.
Yes to #3 in that refining & contemplating intuition will help in the matter. When the mind is quiet & the perspective is neither pro nor con intuition can give us a feeling that stopping at the nextBurger King may not be the most healthy nutritional alternative. I am just beginning my research on this item.

So why are the Erhard slides unsettling?
I haven't over-analyzed them yet, but they seem to agree with you somewhat.  It was just a place to put that link.
