…and hastening along to the measure of the issue, Chris Kresser put up a thread of a transcript of a Dimitry Orlov speech that was made on the 13th of February this year. The link to that is here :-

…for those that struggle to concentrate through long written dialogue, you can find the live speech here :-

Haha!  I knew that would ruffle the elitist in you!  What’s the matter?  Is humor also not allowed in your "perfect" future?

Never said anything about elitist, and never said anything about a PERFECT FUTURE, like I said before, no such thing as perfect (you are a great example of that), we are always emerging, so perfection can never be obtained because we cannot  understand what perfection is.  Is your head ok pat?  Again, repeat the quote over and over.

I think Einstein would have agreed that his quote should not be used to enforce or justify any crazy idea by accusing those who disagree with it of "lacking a level consciousness".  You need to fully explain your ideas.  As they stand now, I’d prefer the fiat-based money system we currently have.  At least this system allows me to circumvent it’s shortcomings by positioning myself accordingly.  Your "system" is far from complete and explainable.  Unless you want to enforce its use at the point of a gun (which I’m beginning to allow as a method, given your attitude), come back when your "level of consciousness" is fully developed.

LOL. seems like you disagree with Einstein, due to that fact that you still do not understand the quote.  I explained the idea the best that I can.  Remember we are talking about 2025, I have no idea about what kind of technology will be available, but I have to make the assumption that after people loose faith in the money system and our clumsy politicians that somekind of alternative must be understood and possibly implemented.  I am talking about moving forward to new ideas.  So my level is developed unlike yours.  We are always developing and coming up with new ideas.  Well some of us Pat, you are still stuck in the past.  True, if we had sound money and ethical politicians maybe we would be better off, but look at history, how long would that last in todays society with all the greedy people.  As long as you have a money system you can have greater unethical control over the population by taxing, and robbing the population, unlike the card.  Again read the quote and please please try to understand it.  So write a response when your level is reached…..tick tock tick tock…..

Small men with small ideas always seek legitimacy by purporting to speak from the pedestals of wise and great men.

[quote=JK121] And No I’m in college jackass. [/quote]

 

This is a shame.  Quotes such as these are the absolute antithesis of a calm and scholarly disposition, and could be interpreted as an embarassment to the educational institution attended by the author.   By the way, I know of no college, except perhaps community college, where professors are referred to as "teachers."

Professors teach so who cares what term I use.  Anthing else?  The emarassment is your failure to understand the point of this post.  Looking for an alternative to the money system.

Einstein was probably referring to Gödel Incompleteness Theorems. They say that arithmetic is not finitely axiomatisable. That this has anything to do with economy, is one of many theories that Einstein didn’t prove.
