It is only too expensive if you pay for cable tv. At $5 per movie on itunes plus $10/month for Netflix, we spend about $35 per month watching ~20 hours of TV, and don't have to deal with commercials.

As long as the price is commercial free, I say it is reasonable value. Add in commercials, and piracy becomes much more attractive at that cost.

Comment Limits aside from heat extraction... (Score 3, Informative) 181

Commercial fossil power stations already drive their stack gas temperature about as low as practical via various heat capture methods, reheat systems, etc. The limiting factor generally is not recovering more energy from stack gasses but the desire to never drive the stack gas temperature below the dew point in that exhaust gas, doing so causes all sorts of negative chemical consequences for the stack itself, pollution control equipment, etc., increasing maintenance cost and reducing equipment life due to aggressive corrosion of stack components and structure. Plants I operated were strictly kept from dropping below dewpoint on the exhaust for this reason, not to mention temperature input constraints for effective operation of some pollution control equipment, you CAN recover more energy from stack gasses, but doing so hits a cost negative and reliability wall. Always remember that waste heat/energy for a utility station equates to large $$$, if there's a practical way to extract more energy from a given amount of fuel, they are likely there as quickly as they can implement it. But the carnot cycle and other less heat cycle related limitation put up a pretty tough barrier to going further, Perhaps this is useful for more "pure" exhaust gas or waste heat streams, but I don't see it happening for commercial fossil power stations

Comment Re: Do good ... (Score 1) 569

There's a difference between knowledge in your head and detailed knowledge written up as evidence. Yeah, I have a general idea of the governing philosophies of the ruling parties of most countries through history. I doubt you had to go put together an economic and political analysis of Venezuela before making your comment about they way they do things. Your premise there is false. I'm happy to have you present your contradictory evidence to my conclusions, though. If I'm wrong, I'll readily admit it if you show me.

the goal of socialism isn't necessarily to have things as a collective, but to provide (and ensure) things for the collective.

I'd have to disagree here. You could have an anarcho-libertarian state with it's members believing that it's the best way to organize for everyone's benefit in that state and it fits a goal of ensuring things for the collective, but you would never call it socialism. Socialism is more about the means to the goal, rather than the goal itself.

There are still some Germans around that would need to talk to you.

If you're familiar with history, you know that the National Socialists were competing with the Soviet Socialists for world power. Sure, they hated each other as part of that competition, but if you look back at newspaper and historical accounts of the time, you'll see that socialism was widely considered to be the modern, scientific way of governing for the future and the Germans were considered just as socialist.

Many Americans (and some very famous ones) considered the National Socialists the future of world socialism. It wasn't until they were on the other side in a war that they lost that retroactively they were written as non-socialist. You have to rely on more contemporary accounts, rather than accounts written by the winners.

(Just a note here, to not be misunderstood, this is by way of explanation. I don't support the ideals of either the National Socialists, nor the Red ones, and certainly don't condone the massive massacres done in their names.)

It's not a coincidence that many South American countries, like Venezuela, act more like the National Socialists. There was a heavy German influence there, both pre-war and after they lost and many fled from Germany.

having things such as public roads are inherently socialistic and very, very few people would argue that (proper) roads are not important to an economy.

There's a long history of private roads, even in the United States. Typically, they are better roads than public roads, so it's interesting that you seem to conflate "proper" roads with public roads. It's also funny you bring this up at a time where despite all the other moves towards socialism in the U.S., roads are one of the few areas where the technocrats are starting to consider privatizing much more as the latest fad in city/state management. Public roads suffer from many of the same issues as public commons, having a difficult time balancing over- (congestion) and under-use (waste), fair payment for them, determining when it's efficient to build more or expand them, etc... Privately owned and managed roads are starting to be seen by governments as a solution to those issues.

we should be systematically looking at what design works for what specific industry or goal

To quote a famous economist, "Markets are flawed, use markets." There is definitely an issue when a central planner believes they have the knowledge (socialist calculation problem) to design what works for an industry, or even knows what the "right" goal is for companies in that industry to pursue. Back to the original corruption level discussion, per public choice economics, that also leads to conflicts of interest related to possessing that power that end well for the politicians, bureaucrats and their cronies, but not for the rest of us.

I think it'd be over pretty fast. After all, the rebellion would have that equipment (if nothing else, it'd come from the military units defecting to their side). And one needs sound logistics to play with those toys for more than a few days. Logistics is easy for a fully armed society in full rebellion to completely disrupt. For example, no fuel means no working armored vehicles or planes.

That's an assumption, not a statement of fact. If it were strictly true, then every government, everywhere, would simply slowly decline until the next revolution.

Well that nearly always seems to be the case. The law of entropy applied to governments. And even a revolution is no guarantee of stopping the decline. See Egypt. Maybe the USSR was a rare exception since IIRC there was no actual civil war before the change. Even if it is not impossible the odds are not good.

Mauro is an example of a developer who pushes back against the rules even though he's been in the game long enough to know not to. Swearing at Mauro is one thing, I think Linus should have considered ignoring Mauro's contributions as he has demonstrated a clear lack of judgment.
