Power corrupts!

It looks like the Democrats are becoming the Republicans. Isiah Berlin's analysis of the corruption of power as he wrote Karl Marx's biography:

'We believe power corrupts those who wield it as much as those who are forced to obey it. Under its corrosive influence, some become greedy and ambitious tyrants, exploiting society in their own interest, or in that of their class, while others are turned into abject slaves.'

Characteristics of a Snob

While playing NFS Shift, I noticed that the Honda Civic Si and Infiniti G35 made similar engine sound, a pathetic whining noise. I knew a couple of chaps that own both cars. They started off with the civic and then saved enough money to get the Infiniti G35. In actual reality they went from a VTEC 4 cylinder to a V6 piece of crap.

The reason why they bought the G35 was because it was the cheapest V6 sport coupe. You pay in what you get for was certainly the case in this situation. In otherwords, you are what you drive. All the people I know who are Infiniti owners worked at snobbish consulting firms. Don't believe me, check out the parking garage at the consulting firms.

The Nissan 370Z is a fine sport automobile. Its engine is more powerful, by driving it on a stretch of the Nurburgring and I achieved a slightly higher top speed than the G35. I like the body style better b/c it sort of remind me of the Bugatti Veyron. I wonder who came up with the design first?

More snobbish nonsense:

VW owners believed that their cars are more superior than Hyundai. Guess what? They are not because Hyundai utilize the same cheap parts as them. Let's look at 2 popular VW models:
2008 Scirocco and 2006 Golf GTI

Scirocco sound a lit bit winey than the Golf but it has faster acceleration. The Golf GTI seems to have higher gear ratio for top speed. Both cockpit interior are boring like GM cars.
My recommendation is go for the Hyundai line of vehicles, they are more refined products. Koreans know how to build a car.

The Analysis of Alex Jones' interview with Peter Joseph

While I was listening this interview unfold between these two people, I noticed that Alex Jones defends himself with his religious beliefs in how the world ought to be. Guess what? It is not going to happen. You have to find the root cause of it. It also seems to me that Alex Jones read too many dark science fiction stories to doubt the Venus Project's goals.

Towards the middle of the interview, both seems to find a common ground. They both know there is something wrong with this world. People need to wake up to make positive changes to this world, not rely too much on the Obama nonsenses. The world is filled with too much corruption and the education system is a joke. The Elites will lie to say our current system is working.

Possible solution: Technology is our savior. Need to use the scientific method to better our lives. There is really no proof that technology can really benefits us.(eg. hi-tech weaponry and meaningless entertainment)
