As the main cause of global warming is the usage of fossil fuels, this post will show what it takes to replace all our energy sources with clean energy and how to do it quickly enough, in order to avoid terrible consequences that can, in some predictions, lead to the extinction of ...

What is the Risk of Being a Patron? http://www.grisanik.com/blog/what-is-the-risk-of-being-a-patron/ One of the complaints I have heard against patronage is that the people you support may trick you. Let’s consider that scenario. Let’s say we start by giving $1 per month, and we do that for the next 12 months. After 12 months, we’ve realized that the person you have pledged to has not done much. We feel tricked and decide to stop ...

Religious Donations http://www.grisanik.com/blog/religious-donations/ Somehow, throughout history, we have been gathering around our fires and holy grounds. For thousands of years, we have been told that we should build places of worship. Even now, when one would think we’ve had enough time for everything to settle down, different religious leaders still compete to build more, taking yet more ...

It is Your Fault the Rich are Getting Richer http://www.grisanik.com/blog/it-is-your-fault-the-rich-are-getting-richer/ No, this is not one of those motivational speeches where I am trying to convince you that you can become rich if you start wishing. Also, it is not one of those stories where I am explaining that you’ve let this happen by not engaging in political processes. Although all those contributed to the issue, this is not what I want to address ...

Permanent Solution http://www.grisanik.com/blog/permanent-solution/ Note to readers: This is part of an internal dialog. “You” is not really you, but me as a mirror and sum of our society. Imagine a homeless guy sitting on a street and people passing by. Glancing at the poor fellow from the corners of their eyes, each person thinks something different about him. One person is thinking, “This guy smells,” with an explicit feeling of disgust and anger. Another has an internal monologue, “Oh boy, he will ask me for money. Do not look him in the eyes. But, should I give him money? I do not want to give him money. Well, I ...

Funding Issue http://www.grisanik.com/blog/funding-issue/ In order to succeed with business you need focus, perseverance, stubbornness, and the ability to work hard, learn, and change... and combining all of this with enough money could make even a lousy idea a huge success. Money gives you the ability to do things otherwise unimaginable. Working hard is often required, but it is not a magic formula for success. There are many people out there who busted their balls working on their ideas, and they have not succeeded, just because they could not secure money. After a while, they found out that someone else with powerful friends took exactly the same approach and ...

Do We Need Cars? http://www.grisanik.com/blog/do-we-need-cars/ I mean, do we need to own our own cars and do we need to have them at all? The self-driving car idea is taking off more and more, and, at this point, it is obvious that that ship has sailed, and it cannot be stopped anymore. Even attempting to curb the progress with “self-driving car ban” legislation will not help at this moment, as other countries around the world will continue, simply because, from the point of view of capitalism alone, it makes sense. Humans are very good at optimising processes, and self-driving cars are just one of many ...
