Automation—once you pop you can not stop

Automation is a Pandora's box, which was opened by Henry Ford. The maker of poor quality Ford cars killed a lot of professions by introducing assembly lines.

One of the many professions that got killed by automation was Blacksmithing.
Blacksmiths, once regarded as "The Gods of all Gods", lost their streak in the beginning of the 20th century.

Today's automation got a new flavor—Artificial Intelligence. Today's "The Gods of all Gods" are doctors and they are beginning to lose their streak too.

Universal Basic Income

Universal Basic Income is a concept that's getting a lot of attention, especially in Silicon Valley. A country that has universal basic income guarantees every person a minimum income regardless of criteria - age, wealth, job status, hometown, family size, etc. Not having to work for food and shelter will help each of us to decide what it is we truly want to do.

With all due respect, but proponents of this great utopian socialist idea, are mistaken.

Being too far removed from ordinary lives, the proponents can not foresee the consequences of introducing Universal Basic Income on a large scale.

Visiting beautiful states of Mississippi, Louisiana or Missouri will show once and for all the consequences of Universal Basic Income on a small scale.

Albert Einstein once said, 70% of people lack motivation and have no idea what they want to do with their life.

P.S It is fundamental to have Universal Health Care and Free Education in place, prior to considering implementation of Universal Basic Income.

One wife with multiple husbands, legalized human dismemberment & more

Mustang is an American automobile manufactured by Ford is a Buddhist village located among Nepalese Himalayas. Mustang is one of very few places in the world that retained its original ancient way of living. It was achieved by not allowing nosy selfie taking tourists (until recently).

The practice of several husbands to one wife was born in Mustang. It was related to the scarcity of land. The marriage of all brothers in a family to the same wife allowed family land to remain intact and undivided. If every brother married separately and had children, family land would be split into unsustainable small plots. Today the practice of several husbands to one wife is related to scarcity of women.

Today the concept of several husbands to one wife is successfully capitalized on by modern entertainment industry.

The practice of dismembering dead human body was also born in Mustang. Ancient Mustangers figured, why waste good meat if the person is dead already anyways. So they cut up a corpse into small pieces of meat and fed the parts to the predatory birds. Today this waste free solution is still practiced. The reasoning behind it differs, however. Today dismembering dead human body is the least expensive funeral.
