Student Loans, I Think

It’s rather a rant.

While I’m looking at my options on how to attend college in Canada, and while I’m kind of broke.

I think about options that would help me in this financial struggle that has yet to come.

What am I going to do with the tuition fee, the bills for food, utilities and others? A loan, of course. First thing came to mind.


The Fear of Automation

In 21st century, there are few critical technological advancements that are ongoing and are going to change the world forever.

Automation is one of them.

Currently, we are still using human labor on jobs that later would be dominated by machines.

Many speculations and assumptions about this robotic future, but to a more realistic view–how would Automation change our lives? And the structure of society?


The Country You Need to Fear Meanwhile Salute to


A country that is known for its weirdness and hentainism. And a bunch of weeaboos’ pilgrimage destination. A glamorous sight of this country for the outsiders.

This country once led the global technology in the early 2000s and late 90s. A country that excels at many aspects and hard to fail at competing with other nations in the world.


The Meaning of Becoming a First World Country

Long time ever since the end of WW2, the rich countries on planet have devised a standard to distinguish other poor countries on the planet.

They title themselves as the first world countries, the “developed” countries. To hit the standard of developed countries, according to Wikipedia,

Economic criteria have tended to dominate discussions. One such criterion is income per capita; countries with high gross domestic product (GDP) per capita would thus be described as developed countries. Another economic criterion is industrialization; countries in which the tertiary and quaternary sectors of industry dominate would thus be described as developed. More recently another measure, the Human Development Index (HDI), which combines an economic measure, national income, with other measures, indices for life expectancy and education has become prominent. This criterion would define developed countries as those with a very high (HDI) rating.


Homo Homini Lupus

Homo homini lupus.

A Latin proverb that translates to “A man is a wolf to another man.”

As an amoral friend of mine says, “Men are no other than bears to each other.”

People routinely put on masks walking among us, the beings underneath the masks may be beasts.

The world we created and developed isn’t exactly what we expect in the first place–a place for human(e) actions.


Human Relationship

I never really notice this before I heard this saying from a video. It says, the human relationships, between friends and acquaintances, are like “you can only be a little bit worse than someone, otherwise your ‘friends’ are not going to be happy.”

I don’t believe this at first of course, and I don’t believe the possibility of it. The cheesiness of this saying is something that I don’t think could be explained by logic.


The First Look at the Current Social Class Theories – Social Class Conflict and Mobility

Firstly in my earlier post, I talked about Marx’s view on society–he thinks that an industrialized society is divided simply by two. The Bourgeoisie/Capitalists and the Proletariat/Workers. And added the undefined Inconsequential Others (Those who do not take part in production, beggars etc.).
