  • Why you shouldn’t give your doctor your Social Security number Important info for US centered people

  • Throughout our history there have been pandemics. As science has developed the better people have become at dealing with it. But we have seen something very different with Covid-19. It is almost a return to something like the Middle Ages, where you are declared ‘unlean’ if you have it and are required to stay away from everyone else. If you get the worst symptoms of Covid-19 it sounds very bad and as we know, if you are vulnerable, lethal. But so is flu. So why have our politicians decided to lockdown society? Is it a strange form of group think that made them all follow suit, with some exceptions?  Are the public unable to cope with something like this that there was no other option but to shut society down? If that is the case, why has that happened? Are politicians so scared of not being seen to take action that they felt they had to do this, otherwise they would lose at the next election? Or is this an attempt by politicians to take back control after being challenged by voters during the last few years?

  • Since early this year, I’ve been working on a startup with my business partner who works for the USPS. We are building a service that allows users to design a postcard or upload a document to our website, and it then prints the mailpiece near the recipient, so that from anywhere in the world, you can get mail to a U.S. recipient within 2 days (possibly overnight), using only First Class postage. However, I’m feeling enormous amounts of internal conflict over this. I don’t feel comfortable running a business that relies so heavily on, and gives business to, a quasi-governmental organization. I haven’t had much enthusiasm about this enterprise lately, since I don’t like seeing my business partner put thousands of dollars into this while I don’t know if I want to be a part of it. Does anyone have any advice to offer me on how I should approach this? Can I still be a co-founder of this company without compromising my Voluntarist principles?

  • On Facebook there are contrary statements concerning the use of names. While the VP of product claims that FB never requires a legal government sanctioned name, the service in practice demands exactly that. At the same time they claim that they want to have the name you go by… So what is in a name? Is the nickname that most people know you by your real name? Do you have more than one name? Must your name be sanctioned by some formal body, like the state? What are the per se traits of names? I’ve my own thoughts, many taken or at least inspired by other philosophers, but I would be interested in what everyone else thinks.

  • http://www.ination.io/ is raising seed capital. What do you guys think about replacing the state’s function of storing legal documents? I assume they mean property registration. Unlike some prominent anarchists, I am in favor of this. Real property such as land titles should be on a blockchain. Thoughts? “Founded in February 2015 by David Mondrus (CEO) and Nathan Wosnack (CCO), iNation is one of the world’s first secure, distributed, and cryptographically verifiable store of legal documents. iNation is one of the first companies to address the coming unbundling of the government services market. More information about the platform, its products/services will be available soon.”
