I get a message saying access is forbidden on my server. I don't know what that means.

forbidden i think means only authorized personnel only

Thanks, Phillipa. I wasn't sure whether anyone here would know about it. Didn't feel the quake or any of the aftershocks here.

I thought my server was blocking it from my end.

I never tried that link before, but didn't see anything at all to suggest that it was supposed to be restricted access...

Unlike any of the ethics work that seems to have been done since then...

I'm wondering, now, whether it was former posters who were anxious to shut this down... Or whether it was more that the medical profession more generally was butt hurt that they didn't have control over it / wasn't making as much off of it as they might be...

we were lucky that there was some kind of military conference going on so foreign navy and airforce could help with the logistics of transporting people out since the landslides took out the road access to the township.

the US met service is helping us understand the earthquake and weather patterns we've been having.

we have decided it wise to invest more money into purchasing better defensive capability with armaments. in the case of future natural disaster it seemed like a good idea

i think people are impressed by the solidarity that emerged from this exercise in public health

or similar...

and i'm just feeling scared, again. i think a lot of people round the world have been feeling that way, lately. from the corners of the world i know about, anyway.

it's a hard... and sad thing...

i'm not really sure what it's about. something about finite resources that we are squabbling over. something about preserving a way of life...

and i guess everyone has got some sort of childhood... childlike... idyl. where everyone is happy and where everything is okay. and people just really want that... whatever they think it will take...

and things get really very messed up. and i really don't understand it, at all.

i just think that if not everyone can live like this... in some important respects... i mean... there are some consumerist / over-consumption things that can go... but if not everyone can live like this... then if people had less kids... then over time that would sort things out.

i mean... i would rather have fewer people with a higher quality of life than millions and billions and trillions of people where many of them are afforded existences little better than animals. i mean... wouldn't most people? perhaps not...

i would rather have less people where there was more health care... i mean care for persons who were relatively willing and able to provide informed consent and to weight pros and cons and come to reasoned opinions about their preferences and so on... than have more people where life is more... nasty brutish and short. even if there is largely the perception of solidarity in that (because that other way of life got all hushed up and away out of site such that the crowds forgot it had ever existed)...

i remember talking to someone on these boards once who said he had been dx'd with psychopathy. he really thought that life was about taking what you can get away with. i was quite horrified. but the more i know of people outside philosophy the more i think that this really is how most people seem to feel / interact with the world.

i don't know what i'm saying... civilisation seems so very fragile sometimes. i suppose things will turn out okay.
