A journey around Connectivity and Is the BBC biased we're All Anti Fragile Now!

The BBC does seem to have undergone something of a face lift in the past few years its corporatisation is a very bad thing, the same thing has happened at Universities and most other institutions. He who pays the piper calls the tune has never had more resonance.
I worked for Shell UK in the mid 80's when the Piper Alpha Disaster happened, I enjoyed my time there and made some lasting friendships in the bubble of the big corporation you do get a bit Stepford Wife about the whole thing and certainly do not get to see the whole picture far from it, and the dazzling cult of the corporate bosom certainly smothers much of a chance of getting an independent overview.
It does seem a strange way to answer a question with a question or accusation. The BBC is very bad on Libya and the Obama and Royal Wedding stuff was sycophantic. I am an ex pat living in Sweden now and hardly bother with the Today Program no question according to this adopted Viking the BBC has been nobbled.

Wonderful Term, “DEAD TREE AUTHORS”
Hey Alan, under what name was Harvat's physics thesis written? — goethean 21:27, 30 January 2006 (UTC)
Hi Goethean. I'm not sure, I could probably find out, but I don't think there is anything notable about the thesis.
I checked the nomination for deletion page and there are 4 delete votes so far - (3 for speedy), so i guess the article will be deleted. I'll copy the latest version to the Integralwiki project so it won't be lost. M Alan Kazlev 21:57, 30 January 2006 (UTC)
Well, if the thesis was published, that could be a reason to keep the article. Dead tree-published authors are usually considered inherently notable. Web-published authors, not so. Also, the article-for-deletion doesn't work on a majoritarian basis; there must be consensus in order to delete. — goethean 16:25, 31 January 2006 (UTC)

M Alen Kazlev, some reading to do here for sure.

Found following a link fro the Positive Money Web Site.

Uncertainty and Algorithms and other statistical devices are used to control our expectations and mould our perceptions ,
Banking is no less manipulative of its own narrative.

I did this brief blog which for me represents a video representation of the abstractions we accept as empirical.

I have been searching for a some sort of Dutch Monetary Reform for a while now, but sadly enough I haven't found one.
Therefore I'm conducting a research in to the possiblities of creating one.

Is there anyone here who would like to join me or can guide me in the right direction?
I'll add more information to this topic when available.

Meet the Fuggers or, its the Money Power stupid. Brexit, The Euro and clueless Elites.

The Eastern Roman empire under Justinian saw the seeds of its final fall to The Ottomans when Abd El Melik started paying tribute in Gold coinage under his own Political Branding you might say.

With all the talk of Brexit being the removal of a final obstacle to the deeper federation of a European State transcending tiresome nationalism, perhaps a little review of History, particularly Monetary history, might not be such a bad thing.

In the review of European competences carried out as a consultation by the foreign office regarding Brexit and or reform requirements of the Eu, two of the papers need to be considered in the context of the Money power argument.

The first paper considered is the Subsidiarity and proportionality aspects of the Lisbon treaty and the competences of the EU institutions vis National and regional democratic institutions. This is a trade-off between Centralised Efficiency and …
