Interesting stuff

  1. Listen: A biophysicist explains Aristotelian ethics and a life well lived
  2. Read: In many countries (not the US or NL), there is a “human right to a healthy environment”. Surprisingly (?), it seems to have an effect!
  3. An interesting look at utilities, regulators and “regulatory capture” (corruption) that misses the (very common) problem of poorly performing municipal utilities.
  4. Read: “GME, Doge, Supreme: How Getting Rich Went Full Internet
  5. Listen: A really great discussion on group cohesion, belonging, and relationships with Robin Dunbar (of the Dunbar number)
  6. Read about innocent people executed for crimes they did not commit: “If I were to be murdered,” wrote Prejean, “I would not want my murderer executed. I would not want my death avenged—especially by government—which can’t be trusted to control its own bureaucrats or collect taxes equitably or fill a pothole, much less decide which of its citizens to kill.”
  7. Read: “Sperm counts have dropped almost 60% since 1973. Following the trajectory we are on, sperm counts could reach zero by 2045. Zero. Let that sink in. That would mean no babies. No reproduction. No more humans.
