I bet they made this content well before Gates said not to wave covid vaccine patent rights for poorer countries. Pretty evil if your holding power and profits over people and thats what gates is doing

    Sortition needs to be talked about more in the US. It is one of the most promising concepts I have ever seen, and it gives me hope that our democracy might be salvageable from the toxic grasp of lobbyist money. It HAS to become a movement in the US, and a big one at that. I really don't want our country to be stuck choosing between two flavors of a corporate sell-out for the rest of my life, especially after seeing where that's gotten us so far.

    I thought hes joking about the Bill Gates cooperation. Jeez man. We had temperatures on earth that were on average 16 degrees higher than now and we did not have any human emissions. There werent even humans around. There is also the sun with its cycles wich effects our climate tremendously. I dont see any reason to slow down emissions if there is no one working on solutions to prevent volcanos from erupting. BTW: Your friend Bill wanted to experiment with blocking the sun out over Sweden. Im happy they scrapped the mad man experiment.

    im 6 minutes and 40 seconds in and it is clear you are on board with a masonic satanic agenda that bill gates and his team presented to you. These people want mass depopulation and are trying to control the wave of the whole world in which they will ushuer in their "new age" and one world leader which is the anti christ. News flash for you masonic people is that Lucifer LOST and JESUS CHRIST WON. The end is near. Repent and believe the gospels of Jesus Christ and you will be granted eternal life.

    Even if you get all the people you want to guess how many beans are in the jar, the average will still be inaccurate. Those mistakes adds up, & this universe's ultimate sentence for severe mistake is extinction. Plus, i find a flaw in the idea that humans require more things being involved... in what way? everything can't be aware(or devoid of ignornce) because humans came to this level of percieve advantage because majority of things are unaware. Imagine if everything had reason, awareness, lesser levels of ignorance , & the capability to act on them? Might mean extiction for us because unaware things like extreme wheater came about by the activity of the unaware. Well, good luck trying to figure out who is right, or wrong. I rather focus on what's the most accurate, least required friction, & beneficial way forward for my direction in life which is to maintain & improve on existence.

    all you need is small but incremental changes to policies - even the most stupborn monkeys will sooner or later be doing the right things. The number one problem is interests of powerful corporations and their ability to directly pay their way into law. If the production of laws was based on research/science and progressive logic we would be always correcting the course well in time. However our society is organised badly. no need to write more

    This is why I love VSauce. You see, when we are reading about Aristoteles, Plato and all other philosophers, we tendo to first read their conclusions about something like, reasoning. At first, it maybe a little confusing, but after reading some examples we can understand how they come with their theories. Michael goes the other way around. We begin theorizing and then we come up with the same conclusions theses philosophers reached. You may say "well, that is the whole *reason* of this video". Yeah, you are right, but I had to say it nonethless.
