It isn't all take and no give. Companies pay out reasonable salaries, protect their people with benefits and commonly even a private security staff.

The mercantilist problem is that some of them have been so successful, usually a symptom of gullible customers, that they endeavor to manage civilization itself, which is not their business.

When people get together, they start thinking of ways to use the group to keep threats away. This quickly becomes its own form of consensual reality. Eventually, this replaces reality, and honest mention of reality is seen as a threat.

You're describing sublimation, a type of defensiveness that doesn't make what's wrong in your life turn right. Maybe the practice is fantastic, but it is still a diversion to avoid confrontation with something negative in life. Somewhere deeper than our many skills is our inner character which governs them.

Metal / Re: Metal needs to be fresh again

All of these core values are anchored in pre-Christian antiquity. Black metal sometimes use this era for a medium to channel these values in song writing. Death metal sometimes uses the present era as a medium for ancient values. But, an historic setting is not always necessary. Being eternal beyond time, the old ways do not need a temporal medium at all.

And on that matter, I've always found a persons apathetic behavior to be based upon a matter that involves looking at the bigger picture of sorts, and not understanding or knowing how to solve the issues at hand, thus taking the easy route out and justifying their actions by buying a new plasma screen television from Wal-Mart, Always low prices, Always.

That is why it is important to follow up analysis with solutions.

People don't analyze what they hear in part due to laziness, but also because they may be forced to take a stand. And why bother anyway? If anyone dares challenge the establishment, whether religious or secular, they are pummeled with assaults on their character and motives. They are labeled intolerant, narrow-minded, or bigoted. So indifference to evil takes root in our desire to avoid conflict and willingness to compromise.

They're developmentally damaged. This isn't an evolutionary step upward.

I have one for ya. I understand Aspies. They're either data crunching and task focused tools or they have no place among us.

It's a common misconception that aspies don't understand human emotions.

At the risk of sounding like a psychopath, these emotions are a tool. It would be best to keep all tools available in our toolbox and to master their uses.

Maybe Aspies should be our future rulers.

An eclectic approach is usually best and not just for advanced research and development projects. Caste was a stable ordering in various civilizations for example. An emperor should have consice analytical ability and the commanding presence of a general or demigod to motivate. You won't get the latter from a human android.

ATTENTION: To all weekenders, hipsters, novelty seekers, scenesters, and assorted parasites of the underground – we, the purveyors and fans of metal pre-1990 are taking back our music from you scum. It was never yours, you don't understand it, and we don't need your permission, approval, or support to continue.

The statement above showed up on the nihil list.

I can just see India declaring an open season on poachers with a handsome bounty per head and global humanitarian protestors up in arms against it. Death to humanity.

That's another step toward fully holographic, or at least optical in the near term, information systems where binary no longer needs to be electrical. The photon working medium potentially scales down significantly more which is a better fit for nanoscale 'tard assassins.

Are they important and if so, why?

Filler reviews.

Nearly generic! Production, production, production. Raw. Vocal stuff. Production, production, production. A bit short. We don't want to be inhumane and non-progressive, therefore room for improvement, thus true unbiased objectivity, read: uncommitted non-review.
