An Opinion you Paid For that Doesn’t Fly…

(On the heels of my last post referring to NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory study asserting Antarctic Ice Shelves are shrinking at a rate we should all be alarmed at, and the Catastrophe such shrinkage represents, I thought it might be useful to take a trip down memory lane some two long months ago… from 031914)

From NASA:
The National Aeronautic Space Administration

Embrace Socialism or Die.

In a Study Paid for with Your Money… NASA Determines that all “unequal” societies fall.  (A “bold” claim considering “Equality” has never nor will ever exist.)

“Two important features seem to appear across societies that have collapsed,” reads the study. “The stretching of resources due to the strain placed on the ecological carrying capacity and the economic stratification of society into Elites and Masses.”

In unequal societies, researchers said, “collapse is difficult to avoid…. Elites grow and consume too much, resulting in a famine among Commoners that eventually causes the collapse of society.”

The study was sponsored by: NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center and headed by the National Science Foundation’s Safa Motesharrei.

If you are not thinking “Why Would NASA be using Taxpayer Dollars to pay for Social Studies?”, let me repackage this “Study” to illustrate my point.

From Waste Management:  Redistribute Wealth or Face Societal Collapse like Rome

From Quaker Oats:  Redistribute Wealth or Face Societal Collapse like Rome

From Alcoholics Anonymous:  Redistribute Wealth or Face Societal Collapse like Rome

From Preparation H:  Redistribute Wealth or Face Societal Collapse like Rome

From Walmart:  Redistribute Wealth or Face Societal Collapse like Rome

From Ford Motor Company:  Redistribute Wealth or Face Societal Collapse like Rome

From Colgate Toothpaste:  Redistribute Wealth or Face Societal Collapse like Rome

I would prefer to hear this foolishness from any of the above… because my Tax Dollars are not funding it.

All of them, including NASA, should promote a feeling deep inside you of “Who gives a Crap about What they think”.

Regarding NASA’s assertion, I certainly Do Not Agree… particularly with the examples provided in the “Study” of civilizations that collapsed and why it happened.  But there are many Government Educated people out there that will not only fail to question why NASA is studying the benefits of Socialism but also fail to know what exactly happened to Rome before it fell.

Frankly we should be Outraged at this waste of taxpayer dollars on Socialist Propaganda.

The Quasi-Military Department called NASA should stick with making sh*t fly and leave Governing Theory to We the People.

(For the 47% us who still pay taxes… you understand why I included Preparation H.)

    When you have a free society, you leave other societies in the dust, and you become very successful. When you have a very successful society, it allows all to be wealthier, but allows the most productive to become far wealthier. When the most productive become far wealthier, the welfare leisure class has more time to rationalize their own resentments. When the welfare leisure class rationalize their own resentments, they empower a ruling class to exploit the most productive, bringing the advance of parasitic policy, and the downfall of society.

    Do not have a free society.

    I agree with you that the study is crap, however, I need to point out that it isn’t really “NASA Funded” in the obvious sense of the word. Safa Motesharrei is a researcher at the National Socio-Environmental Synthesis Center, which is jointly funded by the National Science Foundation and the University of Maryland. The University of Maryland received a blanket grant to fund earth science research projects. So it’s really 3 degrees removed from being NASA funded, they just say that to get in the headlines. So, yes, our tax dollars are still paying for it, and yes, technically NASA had a hand in it, but I guarantee that no scientists who review grant applications saw this study and thought “That sounds like something we should fund.”

    I concur that it this kind of thing is pretty odd for NASA to be studying, and I fail to see how “resources [being] distributed equitably” would solve anything, but that doesn’t mean they didn’t identify an actual problem.

    If the problem with “inequality” is elites being insulated from imminent societal collapse, a more dynamic society should be a solution. They are basically describing an entrenched elite class, or, in other words, government and anyone with an intimate relationship with it. And resources should be used more efficiently by the private sector as well; a prudent business would find ways to save water if water became scarce and therefore expensive, thereby giving it an advantage over its competitors. Of course, running out of oil might be a problem as well, but I am highly skeptical that it is based on how new technologies are making more and more oil extractable, not to mention all the research into potentially viable alternative sources of energy.

      You point out something I left out… As usual Snake, you’re right. Rome fell exactly because the elites insulated themselves from the masses using the masses. That combined with over expansion and fiscal malfeasance led to the decline and ultimate demise. We don’t need yet another study… Let alone a taxpayer funded one using money set aside for space exploration.

    The USA is the grand experiment that almost didn’t survive the first few winters because of a shared food supply system that gave food to those who produced none. insanitybytes22 is right. Eventually those rewarded for producing nothing are joined by the producers until there’s nothing produced at all.

    “A “bold” claim considering “Equality” has never nor will ever exist.”

    That jumped out at me too. Where are all these historical examples of alleged utopian paradises based on equality? Where are the records of their collapses? As much as I am irritated by the US right now, we’re it! We are the grand experiment. We are one of the closest things the world has ever seen to so called “equality”, if that refers to equal opportunity, upward mobility, some form of racial harmony.

    Ironically, we DO have examples of societal collapses brought about by redistributions of wealth. I know it’s not rocket science NASA, but it turns out that humans who aren’t allowed to keep the fruits of their labor lose their motivation to work.

    The only way that NASA will get back to its primary mission is if they move headquarters to Colorado
