|Dave B||No rush, my friend. Don't forget the track isn't finished either, i just wanted to share the vibe and make sure we were going in the right direction before investing more time into it :)||07:11:58|
|evok3d||No worries. I feel its definitely on the right track ;) pun intended.||21:40:54|
|evok3d||"The Intellectual Yet Idiot (IYI) is a product of modernity, hence has been proliferating since at least the mid-twentieth century, to reach a local supremum today, to the point that we have experienced a takeover by people without skin in the game. In most countries, the government’s role is between five and ten times what it was a century ago (expressed in percentage of gross domestic product). The IYI seems ubiquitous in our lives but is still a small minority and is rarely seen outside specialized outlets, think tanks, the media, and university social science departments —most people have proper jobs and there are not many openings for the IYI, which explains how they can be so influential in spite of their low numbers. The IYI pathologizes others for doing things he doesn’t understand without ever realizing it is his understanding that may be limited. He thinks people should act according to their best interests and he knows their interests, particularly if they are “rednecks” or from the English non-crisp-vowel class who voted for Brexit. When plebeians do something that makes sense to themselves, but not to him, the IYI uses the term “uneducated.” What we generally call participation in the political process, he calls by two distinct designations: “democracy” when it fits the IYI, and “populism” when plebeians dare to vote in a way that contradicts IYI preferences. While rich people believe in one tax dollar one vote, more humanistic ones in one man one vote, Monsanto in one lobbyist one vote, the IYI believes in one Ivy League degree one vote, with some equivalence for foreign elite schools and PhDs, as these are needed in the club. They are what Nietzsche called Bildungsphilisters—educated philistines. Beware the slightly erudite who thinks he is an erudite, as well as the barber who decides to perform brain surgery. The IYI also fails to naturally detect sophistry."||22:13:12|

|evok3d||"WHERE TO FIND A COCONUT But the problem is the one-eyed following the blind: these self-described members of the “intelligentsia” can’t find a coconut on Coconut Island, meaning they aren’t intelligent enough to define intelligence, hence fall into circularities—their main skill is a capacity to pass exams written by people like them, or to write papers read by people like them. Some of us—not Fat Tony— have been blind to their serial incompetence. With psychology studies replicating less than 40 percent of the time, dietary advice reversing after thirty years of dietary fat phobia, macroeconomics and financial economics (while trapped in an intricate Gargantuan patch of words) scientifically worse than astrology (this is what the reader of the Incerto has known since Fooled by Randomness), the reappointment of Bernanke (in 2010) who was less than clueless about financial risk as the Federal Reserve boss, and pharmaceutical trials replicating at best only a third of the time, people are perfectly entitled to rely on their own ancestral instincts and to listen to their grandmothers (or to Montaigne and such filtered classical knowledge), who have a better track record than these policymaking goons."||22:14:58|

In reply to evok3dWe need to teach people how to think and use logic for themselves.
|Rob MAC||Way to much group think and tribalism.||23:32:32|

In reply to evok3dThx. This excerpt helped me get a clearer handle on Bitopia. I particularly resonated with the "skin in the game" principal. As a baby boomer and recent entrant to the blockchain phenomenon l find the level of participation and enthusiastic collaboration breathtaking. If only going to school in the 60s had felt like this we might be living in a different world now! 😉.

In reply to Jez CollierYeh its a different world when people volunteer and collaborate.
|evok3d||i found this video when searching the web for potential leads that support Bittopia. I have contacted him to see if he would like to be an advisor and collaborate with us.||03:03:21|
In reply to evok3dinteresting. reach back to us if he replies :)
In reply to DennisWill do.
|evok3d|| I have also Spoken to Jose Morales, a mentor and coach living in Slovenia. He has a large network. He has agreed to be an advisor. I will need to send him the deck and more content before making it official. This is his website:|
