Ideals based on evidence and reason

I collect my thoughts on various issues here as I come across information, admittedly often in the form of edutainment videos. The issues are not comprehensive individually or collectively — some are just an embedded video — but they are better than I could come up with off the top of my head if asked what we need to change. I hope to grow and refine these over time to better understand myself and how I develop.

Across the board, I would like to see computer programming concepts of test driven development applied to policy development. The world will keep changing faster, and laws will become outdated and even contradict their purposes faster. Laws should monitor progress and adjust automatically, similar to smart contracts, and heavily depend on measurement so decisions can be made based on evidence.
