John Rawls introduced justice theories in which he asked to distribute money generated in value chain fairly. That’s hardly how it works.

So say, in capitalism, a raw material is generated by a farmer which is process A and there are processes B and C which generate value(price sold in market to buyer). Today, we find that most money is generated by those who control permissions which doesn’t have much value contribution. Business is cutthroat but it’s in the interests of all A, B and C to atleast keep each other existent. Today, whichever party amongst A, B and C is replaceable is squeezed to the fullest and the 1 key party which holds the right permissions takes all or majority of it. Since permissions are granted by government, that party will definitely be connected to someone within government.

In Kautilya’s Arthashastra, Justice theories were more or less enforced by deciding in advance how much would each value addition cost, like say, if a metalsmith were to polish a metal, the price for that has been decided by the king, or say, if someone sells milk, the cost is decided. The old system has it’s cons but it isn’t as unfair as capitalism where 1 party bags it all.

Government licenses are required in areas like food today where poisoning can be done, etc. but many licenses provide no real value in value chain but it serves monetary interests of people who hold those controls. When governments didn’t exist and debates were happening on what power governments should have, many debates were of the form that government should manage just murder and theft, they should prevent that. While I don’t think such extreme minimal governments will work, but I think minimum amount of rules are very important.

Check out my speech .

Someone from libreplanet deliberately sabotaged it by placing my video exactly on important part of the slides. According to a fellow named Devin Ulibarri, it is a “technical error” and they deeply apologize for it. How thoughtful! The content is still good and you should get the point.

I say browser’s ability to support JS should be removed!



Very interesting.

The issue I find with Clojure is it’s link to JVM.

VMs are always mostly controlled by the data centre hardware which hosts it. I don’t find it secure. Ideally, I think C without pointers and an import system like python would be best. I guess Go is it but Go doesn’t have good compilers. gccgo is gigantic. In my view, C without pointers with python like import system with a compiler like tcc would be best. All modules should be present as packages of OS rather than pip so that all trust is given to OS instead of repos which anyone can insert malware in.

Clojure is incredible. But something like tcc should be made straight from clojure to binary. JVM is absolutely unacceptable!


Ideal Programming Language

Above is a post I wrote a while ago. Check it out.

That’s an interesting link. But in my view, that’s just 1 variable. eg. Python is written in C so on lower level, it would be in C code and it isn’t python. A better way is to see it from lines of code to binary which is a complete conversion.


I’m pretty sure those who aren’t authoritarian also have the same strategy of winning over a minority and controlling a majority. The only difference is in that case the majority believe that they’re not being terrorized and they really believe the ruler acts in their best interests.


Nah. Yes, one sways people here and there according to ideology and winning elections is important, but work of a politician is to manage system as a whole, it is to divide responsibility to next layer of hierarchy, check how much of policies are implemented on grassroots by taking feedback from grassroots and hold that next layer accountable and incentivize or penalize them. Those in next layer will take care of layer below them till things reach the last layer.

Obviously more layers will lead to more cost (commission, corruption, etc.).

As far as I know, authoritarian means that who implements his decision irrespective of whether population likes or not. Such behavior is important in some times. Liberal means that who allows freedom. That too is important in some cases. There’s no middle right, middle left, left and such crap. If I were a politician, I’d simultaneously be at complete scale, precisely because it’s a useless scale.

I really don’t know the meaning of word politics, polity, etc. but I understand very well influence, elections and decision making which are real concepts to me. Statesmanship for me, is the most difficult thing, to be divided into simple duality of right and left.


Stupidity of right and left
The biggest issue of politics is that it is not seen as managing 100 million people but as stupid terms of left and right. There's no left when managing 100 million people There's no right when managing 100 million people There are 10000 different characteristics of each person and the ruler has to choose the right action for or against the right person. That is politics. It is not liberal, it is not authoritarian. An ideal ruler is liberal against one who's liberal and authoritarian against one who's authoritarian. When we stop seeing politics in terms of these stupid terms, all will be solved!

Amidst manipulation of content by centralized companies, a need for fair selection of content arises. Mastodon is a decentralized AGPLv3 licensed software which anyone can host on their own server. Each instance host can keep a copy of Mastodon and can configure it to prioritize content fairly. People can in turn choose servers which they trust. Server code is always untrusted and even if server code is made open source, one cannot trust that the same code is being run on the server. This can be exploited. Decentralization of Mastodon solves this exploit by having many servers across the globe. It already has a lot of userbase.

I’m a major in Physics. It’s interesting but currently, I think, it wouldn’t make any difference whether the universe created itself or 1000 universes merged into 1 or whatever. I would live for maximum 100 years and humankind for maybe few thousand years. It doesn’t really matter!

Also, the current quantum electrodynamics, which is the front of proven theoretical physics is quite difficult to understand!

There are so many such theories M theory , a superset of String theory, I guess there’s Twistor theory, and so many more! Theory of expanding universe also depends just on red shift of very far away light.


Exactly, I agree 100%, trying all kinds of socialist systems is out of question though. Changing systems requires lots of blood and isn’t cheap. Thinking about most stable socialism systems wrt time, which is super tough, is required and be chosen.


My friend recommended reddit to me and since I always search for free software, I found lemmy!

If you’re serious about security, go for OpenBSD or FreeBSD (in case your hardware isn’t supported in OpenBSD). bsd kernel is far superior wrt security.

XMPP - Chat with strong OMEMO encryption
cross-posted from: https://lemmy.ml/post/71785 1. What current existing technology fulfills the solution? WhatsApp. 2. Name of your technology. XMPP 3. How is it better than current technology? It is not centralized on a single server. It's client apps are free software and not proprietary. It uses OMEMO encryption which is strong and private keys stay on client. Whether keys stay on client cannot be verified in WhatsApp even though it claims end to end encryption. 4. Are there any conflict of interests? No. (9th Jan 2022) P.S. Can people please fill sheet of PixelFed. This community would not be useful without action and making upvotes alone. It would flourish if we stay together and interact on given platforms encouraging other people.

Metaverse fashion week
It's incredible how buzzwords just travel in areas where they shouldn't exist!

GO : PIXELFED
Please create accounts at instances mentioned at https://the-federation.info/pixelfed After creating accounts, do enter your username@instancename in the sheet at link of this post. Remember, forming critical mass, it would be lonely out there. (maybe not in PixelFed) Please persist. Connect with each other. Invite your friends and family. Each famous person who has substantial following that you can bring will have immense positive effect. Please use less used instances for load balancing and decentralization if possible.

Requesting design community
Mod was active 9 months ago. I'd like to resurrect this. Mod hasn't replied to message.

I don't get this. Aren't clothes already very eco-friendly? Dyes and threads are biodegradable, right?! P.S. I have added a Telegram channel in bio. Please join if interested. In time, it would be populated.

Pixelfed - a federated alternative for image sharing
1. What current existing technology fulfills the solution? Instagram. 2. Name of your technology. PixelFed 3. How is it better than current technology? It is not centralized. It is free software licensed with AGPLv3 which prevents installation of non-free apps. It can be browsed on web without login, unless the user wishes otherwise. It keeps news feed according to timeline, respects user's privacy and doesn't fingerprint them. 4. Are there any conflict of interests? No. (6th Jan 2022) Cons: Uses JavaScript. JS is not LibreJS friendly. In my view it is a clear upgrade. People's comments and criticisms are welcome. Also, please suggest a system for feedback, i.e. to make sure that people in this community have created accounts on the technology.
