Pat Buchanan, well known politician, author, syndicated columnist and broadcaster has published his new book titled “Day of Reckoning: How Hubris, Ideology, and Greed are Tearing America”. Buchanan has much experience in politic and public activities, he was a senior advisor to three American presidents, Nixon, Ford and Reagan, and was an original host on CNN’s Crossfire. He also co-founded The American Conservative magazine and launched The American Cause, a paleoconservative foundation. He has been published in many publications, including Human Events, National Review, The Nation and Rolling Stone. He ran in the 2000 presidential election on the Reform Party ticket. He also sought the Republican presidential nomination in 1992 and 1996. On American television, he is currently a political analyst on the MSNBC cable network and a regular on The McLaughlin Group.
What is Pat Buchanan’s new book about? By the annotation it’s about how neoconservative foreign policy, open borders, free trade, and multiculturalism are bringing America down. It must be admitted that his vision of US future is not too optimistic but the book is worth reading and you can purchase it on Amazon right now. Here, in the Library you can read very interesting today’s article of Patrick J. Buchanan which was taken from theamericancause.org.

Stop the World, I Want to Get Off.

There was fantastically curious article titlled “Our Lives, Controlled From Some Guy’s Couch ” in August’s NY Times. The article about the omniscient, that omnipotent who is the creator of the heavens and earth. So, why the omniscient could not be an advanced version of a guy who spends his weekends building model railroads or overseeing video-game worlds like the Sims? Such a funny idea isn’t it? But now it seems quite possible. In fact, if you accept a pretty reasonable assumption of Dr. Bostrom’s, it is almost a mathematical certainty that we are living in someone else’s computer simulation.

This simulation would be similar to the one in “The Matrix,” in which most humans don’t realize that their lives and their world are just illusions created in their brains while their bodies are suspended in vats of liquid. But in Dr. Bostrom’s notion of reality, you wouldn’t even have a body made of flesh. Your brain would exist only as a network of computer circuits.
You couldn’t, as in “The Matrix,” unplug your brain and escape from your vat to see the physical world. You couldn’t see through the illusion except by using the sort of logic employed by Dr. Bostrom, the director of the Future of Humanity Institute at Oxford.

Unfortunately one has not any opportunity to choose principally another “station” but however one has to try, what if?
By the way the complete text of the article you can find in my library.
