Comment: So, double encrypt (Score 1) 227

Seems to me if you want to stick to the strict letter of the law, just hand over your crypto key... so the police can decrypt your file... which is itself still encrypted with something else.

Sorry, you asked for Key A, that's what you got, now you want another one? Call a lawyer and start again!

You keep telling yourself that. These wealth creators obviously would never game the system, lie, cheat or steal, right?

And what happened to the amazing productivity we all supposedly have? You know, from our technology? How come if we all are so productive, only a few of us are rich?

Tell me, what is "wealth"? Is it material possessions? Food in the fridge?

Or paper constructs that allow you to game the system?

Yup, but we're talking about dynamic changes, it'll change far faster than it ever has before, and the systems we depend on to survive may not like it.

But hey, whatever, what's really important is creating a society that funnels all wealth to a lucky few while the rest willingly do so and try to kill each other for the privilege.

He's many things but an engineer he is not.

"In 1992, after spending two years at Queen's School of Business in Kingston, Ontario, Musk transferred to the University of Pennsylvania where he received a bachelor's degree in economics from the Wharton School. He stayed on a year to finish his second bachelor's degree in physics. He moved to California to pursue a PhD in applied physics at Stanford but left the program after two days to pursue his entrepreneurial aspirations"

By the time he finished his economics degree, he could probably work out for himself that engineering is not the path to riches. Paying OTHER people to do engineering, on the other hand...

Do we also worry that China and India graduate more lawyers? There's a problem here. We accept that technology makes us so productive that a few people are all that's needed to make a world-wide impact, yet we still expect everyone to work.

So we have lawyers, who are protected by the fact every country or state or province has its own laws... Shouldn't we have one set of laws for the whole planet?

We have one set of physics and electrical rules for the planet and look at the power that enables.

But we'll never see a universal legal system, too much vested interest.
