Today, we remind ourselves why abstaining from drinking is not enough in recovery. Addiction in general and alcoholism specifically are three-level diseases – physical, emotional, and spiritual. While not drinking is most certainly the beginning, it is not the end because abstaining will improve the…

My husband, “the light of my life.”
He is 58 and I am 60. God really does know what He is doing. We are able to be at home together with my “forced retirement”.
At first, I felt guilty, because I had always worked since I was 12. I was brought up to believe, that if I wanted something that I had to work for it.

The “Snowden effect” has hit the Show-Me State, and two state lawmakers hope the feds will take notice.
Sen. Rob Schaaf and Rep. Paul Curtman, both Republicans, have added a ballot to the August 5 primary that will allow Missourians to vote on whether the government shall be allowed to access their electronic communications without a search warrant.
If the constitutional amendment passes, SJR 27 will make Missouri the first state in the country that will have made a constitutional response to the federal government’s massive surveillance reach, the extent of which was revealed by former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden.
Schaaf and Curtman aren’t shy in admitting that the amendment was inspired by Snowden’s intelligence leaks, calling their measure “a direct response to revelations about the scope and nature of the NSA’s domestic spying programs.”

My exposure to things like Bitcoin and 3D printing and the cloud and filesharing services etc. has shown me how the state is incompatible with a digital world. Technology is going to give us the capability to leapfrog the state in ways that were never imagined by anyone even a decade ago.
Be patient my friends. Technology is going to start innovating faster and faster. Pretty soon the state will be entirely irrelevant. Just think about a future where the bitcoin protocol has completely decentralized the internet to a point where the government can’t shut it down or censor anything. Think about what 3D printing means to things like patents or copyright or intellectual property as a whole. Seastedding is quickly gaining steam as well.
I’m hopeful and you should be too.
Remember CISPA? It was the internet spying bill that would give the NSA even more access to American’s private internet conversations without search warrants. The bill got stalled in Congress after major outrage from privacy groups (both left and right) as well as…
