    I know. At least I know most of it right now, being in advanced classes all my life. I can keep up easily. It's just I have to get used to less classes, longer time, adults and less rules. I have to make my own decisions every day now. I guess I am growing up now.

    I think. That if you can't let loose every once in a while without reading into things, and taking them as said, then my head would blow off. Too much thinking gives me a headache. :| And lately even just listening to the wealth of information I'm getting in college is wnough to make my head spin.

    Haha, but I guess you wouldn't be Peter if you didn't make everything complicated.

    You love to tease me, huh? Turn a very simple question into a philosophical debate. :P

    Think about what?

    And how has your life been going? Good? Bad? (Accodring to you, before you ask, "According to whom?")

    Don't you think being too exact is too much?

    How is your life? Geez, so specific.

    Do they have any critiquing groups on Lit-net?

    I have just learned how true that is.

    I guess with this issue, neither can win. You can analyse to comprehend a part you don't understand, but then, if you don't understand at all, how can you begin to analyze. I guess they go hand in hand.

Rule of Law

by PeterL on 11-21-2021 at 01:46 PM
I have already written about the lack of care in using laws and the constitution as the bases for governmental action, but something has to be done about it, one way or another.

It bothers me that the federal government has taken over some of the powers of the states, even though the feds are explicitly forbidden from assuming any powers that have not been granted to it. We just have to look at the federal departments to see this. Department of Education, Department of Health

How Much" Eliminating Inflation

by PeterL on 10-29-2021 at 10:11 AM
I don't often think about inflation, but it is present whenever I buy anything, and it is not as benign as some would have us think. There are many measures of inflation, but I like to use a few things to show the change in proportion. You may not remember it, but in 1820 an ounce of gold was worth $20. That same ounce of gold would have sold for $35 in the 1960'a. But that isn't comparable, because the market for gold was highly regulated.

Another comparison is in the cost of labor

Fake Science

by PeterL on 10-14-2021 at 10:03 AM
I have followed science news for decades, but I have become progressively less impressed with it, because of the lower quality of the reporting. Part of the reason might be that I am more knowledgeable now than I was a few decades ago, but I do think that the writers of science articles are not as familiar with the material they are writing about as was typical in the past. Some articles give me the impression that the writer had no prior knowledge of the subject at hand.

Something About Post-Apocalyptic Literature

by PeterL on 10-02-2021 at 01:46 PM
It has been written that a work of fiction is a conversation between the author and the reader, or one side of the conversation. That that implies that the reader must think about and understand what the author is expressing ( see The Role of the Reader by Umberto Eco for more detail). For that reason, I am giving some insight into my novels Causation and Paradoxes and Contradictions.

I have long had a problem with most apocalyptic and post-apocalyptic literature and movies, because
