CMP (Canadian Mind Products)’s purpose is to stand up for the rights of plants and animals. Animals also includes cetacea, humans, gay people, atheists, war victims and invertebrates. CMP attempts to inculcate planetary consciousness — concern for the planet as a whole. A subgoal is to teach people to use computers effectively, particularly with the Java computer language.

Advantage of Immigrants

Trump has focussed entirely on the disadvantages and costs of immigrants, seasoning his arguments with racism. He is ignoring the case for immigrants. There are three stages of life:

  1. Child

    It costs the government $160,000 to raise an American child to age 16 to cover education and health care costs.
  2. Adult

    The person pays taxes and contributes to retirement funds. They build goods and services contributing to the GDP.
  3. Old age

    The person lives off retirement funds. Their health costs are the highest of any time in life.

The advantage of immigrants is they usually arrive as young adults. They are pre-educated. Their childhood health costs have already been paid. They start within a year or so paying taxes. If a country has an aging population, there are not enough young people paying into the retirement funds to cover the payments to support the aged. Immigrants boost the number of young payers.

Pointless Punishment

One of the strangest notions of western jurisprudence is that any wrongdoing can be erased by either a payment of money or by locking the wrongdoer in a cage. Yet no conceivable punishment will restore a rainforest. The only sensible plan is to block the wrongdoing in the first place.

Translating Corporate-Speak

When a corporate executive tells you that it will cost too much to clean up his company’s pollution, what he mean is my golf club fees, my Ferrari, my coke habit and my bi-annual gastronomy tours of France are more important that your child’s life.
