This is shocking: 346 passengers are dead because Boeing doesn't understand Byzantine faults.

"We had to kill the Vikings, bc they bathed and brushed their hair and our wives couldn't resist such sophistication" is a HELL of a take by medieval English chroniclers.

Hey I’d rather see my timeline in ... eh well... sorted by time than some arbitrary weight set by you. You don’t have to switch me back every other day. Thank you Timeline. It’s in the name

I'm not sure nationalising auto industry would achieve much at all though.

Turns out regulating a big enough market can affect things on a global scale. 🤷‍♂️ Imagine the UK or EU imposing that all new vehicles to be electric by 2025, it'd get done by necessity, just need politicians to not take money from lobbyists..

This was roughly the core of my argument of potential solutions: regulation that nudges markets in the right direction. I believe California has a long history of improving auto industry environmental standards through regulation. Globally, despite being only a state of the US.

In the absence of a clearer definition, the only one we have is the dictionary definition (which is fairly concrete). And if they don't actually mean it, don't use it.

yup. I've been at both ends of the pool when I was younger: hardcore socialist first, then libertarian, before I realised both ends looked strikingly similar with similar outcomes.

However, 40 years of failure, compared to (I presume some variation of) societal overthrow to what failed for 100 years and was disproven by 1990 is not exactly the new fresh ideas I'm looking for..

My issue with the words "socialism" & "capitalism" is just what you say: they provide little useful information on what people want, other than what can be gleaned from the rethoric & dictionary definitions.

Socialism & entirely unregulated end up with strikingly similar results: monopolies, corrupt political & industrial elites in bed with each other.

Again,not an issue of ideology: socialism has in every instance thus far ended with political elites grabbing wealth and being generally corrupt.
