Daniel Suarez: The kill decision shouldn't belong to a robot
Ang, there is a world order to uphold, these struggles don't happen by accident, the fact that the world is divided to nations is not accidental either, it is the only design humanity can work with so far, its competitiveness is ingrained down to our economy and its monetization and monopolization, its greed. In terms of technology we evolved out of the middle ages, but in terms of ideology the advances are superficial at best.

Daniel Suarez: The kill decision shouldn't belong to a robot
Much of the stuff that you mentioned will happen, is already happening in some form or another even without the help of robotics. To quote RATM: "Theres a mass without roofs A prison to fill Theres a countrys soul that reads post no bills Theres a strike and a line of cops outside of tha mill Theres a right to obey And a right to kill" Sounded far reaching and radical a decade ago, now not so much because that reality is only getting stronger and increasing as the game of capitalism gradually overrides democracy.. As for Kill decision, at least robots make a decision based on programming unlike humans that make the decision sometimes arbitrarily or because they felt like it. Are humans making the call really that much better? As for the whole Skynet scenario you warn us about: Machines can be hacked, you can throw some EM Radiation at them and they get confused or use magnetic bullets to make their circuitry scrambled.

George Papandreou: Imagine a European democracy without borders
I think it is Interesting that only when people hit rough times, like Greece, and they are left on the outs, only then can they see the truths and pitfalls of the system. Democracy is merely a mask, in the grand scheme of things we only advanced a few steps away for benevolent dictatorship and feudalism . The money, the economy, it is all there to fool people into believing that they have the control and power (and thus the responsibility) . All when in fact power is being accumulated by the usurpers just like in old times except indirectly and discreetly thanks to the wonderful mechanics of economy and taxation.

Jackson Katz: Violence against women—it's a men's issue
Julien I think that you can agree that the majority of families are heterosexual and this educational problem is in its majority a cultural problem that begins at home, in the way people are brought up and the values they cultivate while growing up. this could extend to the LGBT community problems of men beating men in a relationship or women abusing other women but here the speaker talks more about the mentality of heterosexual (cave)men towards women and how it becomes ingrained and passed down through generations in some cultures and how some men would not rise up to speak against it So yes you can ask all sorts of related questions like 'Why these women go for abusive men when there are so many non-abusive men out there?' and try to broaden the issue so the responsibility seems to fall on more people but I think the strategy of this speaker is intended to appeal to men to rise up and responsibly oppose and make a difference on this issue rather than leaving it only to feminists or civil rights movement to advocate

David Foster Wallace: This is water
What is the point in your eyes? We are all free to think what we choose . Simply being dismissive of what I say is not enough and likely akin to calling me an idiot and walking away.

David Foster Wallace: This is water
Sorry David , I don't think this way, and if someone talks on their cellphone on the line at the supermarket or looks kinda ugly, tough shit, that's life, people look worse with unnatural plastic surgery that mutilates the natural human form and they can't move out of the line to take an important call because then they lose their spot. just a few examples but I think there are many people that come with the default settings of trying to make the best of a lame situation. If anything this whole situation calls for Internet ordered shopping that saves you all the headache, but then you drive from home to your job and back in some routine day in day out, not the most fun either work->drivehome->sleep->drivework->work->drivehome->sleep->drivework->work etc, until you get so bored you might WANT to have a traffic accident..nothing major just a small scrape to build a story around. (and of course you wont get to check out hot women at the supermarket if you order shopping online)

Meg Jay: Why 30 is not the new 20
Thanks Meg , now at 30 I feel super old with no 28 y/o girlfriend and no entirely developed career and no chance at developing one because anyone who follows your lecture would consider me an old has been who is past his prime ;-/ Disclaimer Just kidding, if I really thought that way i'd give up entirely and go work in some mind numbing job or kill myself. The reason I think differently is the fact is that my parents divorced when I was around 8-9 years old, they were roughly at their 30+ and since then they each reinvented themselves and developed successful careers, all at their 30s, I am extremely proud of both of them and I consider it proof that the "I'm too old to develope my life" is mostly a mindset rather than something real.
