is doing new things. To become a successful entrepreneur, you do not need to come up with something completely new. You can improve something that already exists." (Dr. Sargeant, 2019). #Vincentian #JoVSA

Disinformation can be seen as
a byproduct of a different kind of war, one that is
fought in an attention economy (e.g., Wu, 2016),
under the conditions of so-called “surveillance
capitalism” (Zuboff, 2015). (Horowitz, 2019). http://ow.ly/yd6x50wQsHo #JoVSA #DigitalWarfare

John Maynard Keynes (1931) asked the question:
what do we do when we have solved the economic
problem, when abundance and not scarcity is the
norm? (Clark, 2017). http://ow.ly/VJAx50wdsWs #Vincentian #Economy #Capitalism

The way to realize the political perspective is the introduction of considerations of justice, since justice is defined, precisely, as “a certain equality” (Aristotle, 2005, p. 81), (Marco, 2018). http://ow.ly/XNDp30nHy4c #Vincentian #Politics #Equality #Aristotle
