The concept of the Kardashev scale was developed by cosmonaut Nikolai Kardashev as a way of categorizing Cosmic civilizations. Scientists, such as Carl Sagan, during the 1970s calculated that humanity was currently at a Type Zero status, roughly around 0.7. Most scientific estimates conclude that humanity will reach Type One status by around 2100. However, if we consider the rapid mobilization of resources that occurred during the world wars in which entire domestically oriented economies were retrofitted into complete war machines for military production within 6 months. Then utilizing similar mobilized coordinated industrial backing, any type of revolutionary momentum against the consolidation of power developed under Global Capitalism could be boosted with this industrial mobilization in which a full Type One civilization could be developed within a decade.

A Type One civilization transcends the current Type Zero civilization pieced together under Global Capitalism because the fundamental basis of capitalism’s privatization inhibits civilization from actually developing beyond its own contradictions and limitations. We already see immense Tier systems used in Global Capitalism to manage multiple levels of civilization development built to various complexity so as to isolate and limit those who can gain access and the means to access a “1st class/1st world” lifestyle. This hierarchical construction of multiple levels of civilization perpetuates not just wealth stratification, but stratification of civilization to the point that small enclaves of super wealthy are conceivably living in a near breakaway civilization. Such technological advances in the upper echelon of this quasi-civilization risks isolating technologies such as human augmentation and other transhuman technologies that can be used by elites to justify pseudo-God like dominion over their enclaves and networks of wealth and prestige that mirrors the dictatorial and tyrannical deities foreshadowed in our ancient myths and legends.

If humanity is to evolve and advance as a species, the privatization perpetuated by Global Capitalism must end; or else a true breakaway civilization will occur generating stratification of species, in which technologically integrated humanoids position themselves as quasi-deities that use their privatized wealth to control the rest of humanity. Therefore, the entire premise of a Type One civilization must not only be designed to distribute these technologies to all of humanity, but must be done so in a manner in which private economies and private individuals do not have the power to control the mechanisms of civilization as we know it. Potential for a Type One civilization to create immense civilization upgrades transcending the current “1st class/1st world” lifestyle will be reflected in the creation of a unified global civilization under which the masses of humanity develop self sustainable and self-sufficient communities connecting into a global network of the human species. And together, this Type One civilization can expand humanity in mass into the rest of the Solar System and beyond. Should this Type One civilization not form; the separation of the breakaway upper echelon of society will forsaken their responsibilities, severing the tops of our centralized and vertically organized structures and institutions. Leaving the rest of humanity disorganized and in a state of collapse; with a biosphere completely broken by Global Capitalization.

Comey's Failure

How his plan to exonerate Clinton backfired
136

The interview between Former FBI Director James Comey and George Stephanopoulos revealed new information surrounding Comey's decision to reopen the investigation into Hillary Clinton's emails. Comey explained in the interview that the decision to reopen the investigation was not made by him alone. Comey stated, "The senior team of the FBI, including the general counsel, thought we have to."

So now we know that Comey did not act alone, but it is important to note that the decision to reopen the investigation undoubtedly hurt Hillary Clinton's chances and could have very well cost her the election. It is evident that Comey was aware of this possibility going in, but facing pressure from other FBI officials, forced him to go back on his prior reassurance that Clinton was no longer in need of investigation. It would be easy to dismiss Comey as a political hack working against Hillary Clinton, but his explanation during the interview shines a new light on his reasoning.

Now, do I think Comey is a political hack? Yes, I do. But not against Hillary Clinton. After Stephanopoulos asked Comey if his decision was made in some capacity to legitimize Clinton when she won the presidency, Comey acknowledged that,

"I don’t remember consciously thinking about that, but it must have been because I was operating in a world where Hillary Clinton was going to beat Donald Trump, and so I’m sure that it was a factor,” Comey said. "I don’t remember spelling it out, but it had to have been, that she’s going to be elected president and if I hide this from the American people, she’ll be illegitimate the moment she’s elected, the moment this comes out"

Based on Comey's response, it would appear that this was a man acting with a goal in mind. Let's further break down that goal using his own statements. Comey, by his own admission, was acting as though Clinton was going to win the election. He further realized the implication of new Clinton emails appearing on the laptop of Anthony Weiner. Comey was evidently concerned with how this would impact Clinton's presidency if left untouched by the FBI. So what was his next move?

The FBI had forced his hand and made him reopen the investigation days before the election. It would be idiotic to assume Comey did not understand that his credibility would take a hit with this announcement. Comey gives context to the situation in his discussion with other FBI officials with one saying, "We can't possibly finish before the election because we have to read tens of thousands of emails".

This, to me, highlights a major problem. It was clear that they could not adequately review the information before the election ended. But wait, why did Comey then tell congressional leaders that their was no criminal wrongdoing? He just admitted on ABC that they did not have time to review all the emails. So how exactly would he know if there was no criminal activity within those emails?

Here's my take: Comey knew he had to reopen the investigation and understood how it could negatively impact Clinton's chances. So, he did what any good lawyer would do. He presented the investigation and got the chance to paint the scene and exonerate her before her political opponents could go after her post-victory.

His acknowledgement that there was not enough time to review all the emails and his subsequent conclusion that she was not guilty shows clear intent to exonerate without proper investigation. It was a facade designed to appease the American public and convince them that Clinton did nothing wrong even after the evidence was not properly reviewed before a true conclusion was reached.

This would have worked out in Clinton's favor had Comey not gone about the investigation so poorly. Comey's investigation was not convincing and therefore left a bad taste in voter's mouths when it came time to hit the polls.

A Love Letter To You, Paul Ryan

You finally located your spine!
34
views

My dearest Paul,

I must start off with saying that I'm incredibly proud of you for your recent decision to retire as Speaker of the House.

You've finally located your spine.

When you first took on this role, I was sad that I'd no longer see John Boehner's poorly tanned, orange face behind the President, scowling as Joe Biden beamed like a proud dad ever time Barack spoke. Thankfully though, we have a new orange-faced scowler at the helm! What a relief!

I used to get lost in your blue eyes. I mean, come on, how could a girl not? Your wife is so lucky that she gets to stare into them every day.

You have truly left a legacy: a divided and extremely polarized House, multiple government shutdowns, and a party that seems to have complete lost it's identity because you and the President, who are supposed to be working together, can't seem to meet eye to eye.

I hope you take a page out of Barack's book and take a vacation. You deserve it! It's got to be absolutely exhausting to accomplish leaving a crucial branch of our government worse off than it was before.

My best advice: get a massage. Who knows what your spine has been up to these past few years. You definitely need to work out those knots.

All the best,

The House-flipping Hopeful
