A Modest Proposal for the Presidential Library of Donald J. Trump.

 I was reading the latest fiascos of Donald J. Trump and his aversion to showing reverence to the troops at cemeteries...when it gave me an idea that I think all red-blooded Americans can get behind and support.

To set the stage, we need to go back in history and see how other presidential estates have been turned into libraries, or cemeteries. In particular, it's educational to learn about what happened to Robert E. Lee's  estate in Arlington, Virginia. He inherited this estate from George Washington's adopted grandson. After the civil war, the United States seized the land for non-payment of back taxes (they didn't pay their property tax during the civil war...) then they turned Lee's front porch into a war memorial and a military cemetery. And they wouldn't pardon him, either. Lee went to his deathbed still a fervent white supremacists to the ends of his days. And we rewarded him by taking away his land and turning it into a cemetery to honor those he had helped to slaughter during the recent civil war. 

It seems like Donald J. Trump deserves better. We need some place to house all his tweets, television snafus, conspiracy theories, thrashing of international agreements and dog whistles of racism in one place so they can be evident for all to see. Since he doesn't read, he has no use for a library, but the American people do. We need to never forget what a kleptocratic con-man can do to this country. 

Trump is always looking for what's in it for him... so we could make a deal. Trump could donate Mar-a-lago back to the government (you probably didn't know it was a historical park for many years - and a possible Florida Whitehouse back in the 70's, but the park service thought it was too costly to maintain and the Secret Service thought it was too costly to defend) and in exchange the American people would promise not to lynch him and to build his library there.

Mar-a-lago would be a spectacular place for Trump's Presidential Library! There is no more appropriate place than Florida. We could let him stay there for as long as he likes and in return America would promise to not prosecute him for the many election fraud felonies, corruption scandals, emoluments violations and abuses of power that he has committed. He'd take that deal in a minute, he is, after all the King of the Deal! 

Maralago, on the Florida coast in Palm Beach. Two golf courses are just west of the club across the Lagoon and cover a few hundred acres. 

As it's a library and museum there's no need for a set of golf courses, instead, I propose that we turn the golf courses into the equivalent of Arlington Cemetery. We allow anyone who's died from COVID-19 to be allowed to be interned there. It's big enough we could fit every one of the probable 500,000 people he's going to end up killing because of his incompetence. If there was space left over, it could be a national debtor's graveyard, for all of those forced to go bankrupt to save their lives because of outrageous health care costs at any point because the insurance system in this country has been sabotaged by the Republican party for decades; it's only fitting to allow the dead to be memorialized there.

After the seizure the Club becomes the Donald J. Trump Presidential Library and the Golf courses become the COVID-19 Memorial Cemetery.

Does anyone think it's worthwhile setting up a non-profit organization with a fund-me to promote this idea? I think it is more than appropriate.

Thanks for reading!

The Declaration of Independence is the foundation of modern ethics

The Settlement of the War between Science and Religion . Why the Declaration of Independence and the Bill of Rights are More Important than you realize. These two documents provide the foundation of the Grand Moral Compromise between Religion and Science that allowed the Industrial Revolution to progress by defining the morals and ethics of governments and their relationship with the people. The only moral and ethical form of government is declared to be a Lawful Democracy with Religious  Freedom . These two documents define why this is from first postulates and dictate the method to form a government. The Grand Moral Compromise was defined in the Declaration of Independence and codified in the Bill of Rights : it is the agreement that abolished the crime of heresy in return for freedom of all religions , including science , the harbinger of truth . Only about half [G] of the world has agreed to this  Grand Moral Compromise , the rest are still at war with themselv

Quantum Mechanics is weirder than you think. It might be weirder than anyone can think.

Reflections on " Experimental rejection of observer-independence in the quantum world " and an updated version " Experimental test of local observer-independence ". Are we quantum mechanical or not? This paper basically proves that the famous Schrodinger's cat experiment , which says the cat is a quantum mechanical wave function is correct. The cat is actually in an entangled state which means the cat is alive and dead at the same time. That's pretty weird! But we an make it even  weirder! Imagine, if you will, [1] that you are taking the place of Schrodinger's cat. We don't want to kill you so we'll modify the experiment in line with Deutsch's proposal and Wigner's interpretation. [2] The experiment performed above is exactly Deutsch's proposal and the result is that yes, you as the observer are in a superposition of quantum states. What is you in that previous statement? You only ever remember one set of events. You never have

The Social Dilemma - Sounds to me like a medical problem.

 If you're not familiar with the plot of docudrama "The Social Dilemma", go watch it now.  If you haven't seen it, the short summary is the following: Social network sites get paid for you to watch their ads. The more ads they get you to see, the more they get paid. Their entire capitalistic inc3entive is to make you watch more of their ads. They work very, very, very hard to make this come true. They're really good at it. They suck you in and keep you doom-scrolling as long as they can. They don't care if it's bad for  your health, they want those ad dollars. They want to increase their feed's 'stickiness.' They want your attention and they'll get it any way they can.  And how do they get it? The don't create their own content... they entice you to scroll for content you've 'signed up' for. Content that your friends publish. Content that your favorite authors publish. Content that other famous people publish. That seems rea
