_________________________________________________

Most of you already know what liberty is but just for clarity of understanding my point, I’ll say that the golden rule of liberty is that it protects rights that all human beings should be born with, but the catch is that these rights of liberty should never obstruct the rights of others. What does this mean?

If you don’t like gay marriage then don’t marry a gay person, if you don’t like abortion then don’t get an abortion, if you don’t like drugs then don’t use them, if you don’t like a certain type of sex then don’t have it , if you don’t like porn then don’t watch it and if you don’t like cigarettes then don’t smoke them but if you don’t like your rights being taken away then don’t vote to take away other peoples rights!

This code of liberty should be universal and every human should learn these manors in modern day society if we are to all get along as Rodney put it. As the global population grows, the world gets smaller and resources will become more scarce. This means some of our freedoms may become hindrances to others. Unless you think the world is going to end this December 21st, 2012, you might as well start thinking about how our liberties will be affected in the future. Which, in the scheme of things, could be tens of thousands of years all the way to 6 billion more years (enough time for dinosaurs or humans to evolve and become extinct 60 more times). I’m the most anti-regulation, anti-government kinda guy you’ll ever meet, I even got an Anarchy tattoo on my left ankle when I was 13 just to let people know I thought the government was unfair but If we are to survive and thrive in this world over the upcoming millennia, we must take extra precautions to not break this golden rule of Liberty.

How Does This Apply in the Modern World?

If you live in a modern-day, developing country that is overpopulated like India, China, Philippines or Indonesia and you decide to have ten children, then you will surely contribute to the suffering of others. In this situation, the right to have more children than you can support must be limited or it could lead to massive genocide. I have lived in India and the Philippines since 2006 and have visited China on several occasions. They are reaching maximum capacity and cannot sustain their rate of growth. Can you think of any other freedoms that we might have to loose as our world becomes smaller? Also feel free to list some freedoms that we should never sacrifice no matter what.

Does Google Want to Disarm America?

Google Disarming America

google-anti-gun-propgandaGoogle just posted this very disturbing article outlining Global gun trade. I don’t support what  Eisenhower referred to as the military-industrial complex or violence but I do support civilian ownership of guns. We already know what happens when you prohibit guns, then only the military and bad guys have them, leaving the civilian population unable to protect themselves from local crime, invasions or worse yet, protection from a military-state government.

Right to Bare Arms

Just in case anyone forgot, our 2nd Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America provides individual right to possess a firearm, unconnected to service in a militia and to use that arm for traditionally lawful purposes, such as self-defense within the home. I don’t want to be your stereotypical American but I have many reasons for wanting to keep the 2nd Amendment intact. Being able to bare arms to protect one’s person and property is legally classified as a natural right.

In the video below they mention that 74% of all guns are civilian owned but they use examples of wars in underdeveloped countries like Africa or Mexico’s drug war to demonize guns in general. These guns are owned by governments, military, and militias which, also accounts for 90% of gun related deaths. People don’t just go around shooting each other, only governments and corrupt politicians do that. It’s a fact that people are safer with civilian gun ownership.

crime-vs-gunsGoogle, Guns & Politics

Why is Google getting involved in these politics in the first place? They have no business lobbying in global politics that concern our personal freedoms. It’s very disconcerting to see Google getting involved with this type of propaganda. I’d even go a step further to say that Google is overstepping their boundaries and committing corporatism by using their power and money to try to influence laws that will take away our basic rights.

UN-American Disarmament Plan

Stand strong my fellow Americans as well as other citizens of the world because there are big plans from the UN, US, and international powers to disarm American civilians and the whole world. Heres the Official UN Disarmament Plan (PDF). You should definitely read this report on “Complete disarmament” of the American people from HangTheBankers.com.

Genetic Code, Binary Code and My Visions of the Future

DNA genetic code and the future

It’s been a while since I posted my last rant so this one ought to be good since its been building up.

The Code of Life is Digital

It’s amazing to think about the similarities between the genetic code that DNA is made out of and the ones and zeros that make up binary code used in computers. Just the idea leaves me in absolute awe because being able to look into this world and even manipulate it, seems like the kind of power only a god should possess and in glimmering moments of genius, I feel that it’s just within our reach. Before I get into the heart of this rant, I just want to explain exactly how they are so similar then, I’ll tell you what can be done with this knowledge.

Computers

computer 1s and 0sComputers are able to store and process information by breaking it down into combinations of ones and zeros that represent a value.  One binary string aka a byte consists of eight characters and each bite can contain a small amount of information. For example, a W in binary code looks like this, 01010111. It takes tens of thousands of these bites of information to represent text on your computer and millions to represent colors and pixels to make up an image.

DNA Code

dna-acgtThe genetic code of DNA is made up of four different molecules labeled as letters instead of numbers and these letters are A for adenine, C for cytosine, G for guanine and T for thymine. Genetic code restores and processes information binarily and has been doing it with amazing complexity for about 4 billion years now. An example of this is TGGACTTA on the 12th chromosome will mean you will have blue eyes or brown hair. It takes strings of this code wide enough to wrap around the Earth to provide enough information to build a human body.

OpenSource DNA

Now you see how these two technologies if you will, are one in the same. You can take the DNA of simple lifeforms like bacteria and completely upload that into a computer. This has been done and is known as DNA software. From there you can play with the building blocks of life by adding to it, taking away or building completely new modules altogether. This is a new field of science called synthetic biology and there are already open source communities developing the software, building modules and building a repository. Once you have reconfigured the code of As, Cs, Gs, and Ts you can then print it out by using the actual molecules that these letters represent then place it into a cell. It’s then put into a petri dish and is given a small electrical charge to kick start it just as you would restart someone’s heart and a new lifeform comes into creation. Think this sounds crazy well it’s already been done and they named the new lifeforms Synthia but the scientific name is Mycoplasma Laboratorium as shown below.

The Future

My super system of the future will be a computer interface integrated into my DNA that allows me to control my genetic software and I’ll call it Gemmy (pronounced Jimmy that is). If I catch cancer, I’ll just tell those cells to stop reproducing, if I want to climb a wall, I’ll just activate my synthetic spider genes and create some silk like Spiderman. Now you must really think I’m crazy right?!?!?! But I’m not because this type of genetic engineering has already been done. We have located genes responsible for the different types of cancer and can remove them and in Utah, we have already put spider genes into goats to produce super-strength silk. Now you wanna mess with me and Gemmy? No, I didn’t think so.

synthetic spider webThis stuff is real and will be a big part of our everyday life sooner than you think. People will create whole open-source platforms and widgets of life that are integratable and interchangeable. It’s not all good that could come of this as a computer virus can be written in this code and will essentially a real virus by all scientific means.  The possibilities are really endless so mention your thoughts and visions for Gemmy and what you would use it for in the comments below
