    lets be clear, all what you talk about would be relevant had Clinton won. In many ways worse, as it would have not been seen as relevant. I am not a Trump supporter! Will he be any worse than the Bush or Regan years? Look at there world legacy, the answer has to be no. All politicians are puppets to global capitalism. Just side step and wise up. Then get back to talking about SL. An hour about the New Horizons homes, would have been so much more fun.

      Hugs Ella and thank you for listening. We will talk SL for sure at the core of the show but when there is fascism on the rise we need to call it out 🙂 Clinton may be a controversial figure for some but she is not an authoritarian who is now in the seat of power, surrounded by sexists and white nationalists who waited for a long time =

        drax, I am right with you on how bad Trump and his “team” will be. My point was about the power of Facebook and Goggle. They will be a challenge to true democratic freedoms, regardless of who holds the office of state. What ever topic you cover, your shows and videos are always a must. Looking forward to Dec 3rd:)

    I enjoy my virtual escape from the mundanities of meatspace as much as anyone, but I think it’s interesting to sometimes look around and ponder how the two might be connected.

    Trump’s unexpected triumph will surely have a significant impact around the globe, and the emergence of feasible VR is also likely to be a game changer in more ways than one.

    The only thing that seems certain at this point is that change is coming, and that events in the virtual and physical realms will influence each other. Bigly.
