Pop Goes the Data

Mover over rover, Mars is no more

Inspired by Jeremy Bentham (1748–1832)’s quote, “Stretching his hand up to reach the stars, too often man forgets the flowers at his feet.”. The titled responsion is

No longer a focus I mean, the extent to which we should focus on space exploration may need to be put on hold until we get our house (Oikos) in order. The planet should be the priority, crisis means diverting means and economic focus towards the outcomes that are sustainable for ecological balance. Come on guys let’s get with the program! Mars will outlast humanity, not the other way around. Pop goes the planet!

Dialectic Bastardized

Inspired by György Lukács (1885–1971)’s quote, “Critical philosophy implies above all historical criticism. It dissolves the rigid, unhistorical, natural appearance of social institutions; it reveals their historical origins”. The titled responsion is

Acknowledging that there are other vectors of cultural institutions, defining institutions in a counterfactual claim is a defence in its own right. Correct? Possibly.

Inspired by Marilyn Monroe (1926–1962)’s quote, “Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it’s better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring.”. The titled responsion is
