In the realm of economics, a tax proposal in Colorado is stirring up a storm. The proposal, which could see homeowners paying over $390,000 per year in property taxes, is being touted as a potential solution to the state’s revenue woes, brought on by a high office vacancy rate of 17.8% and a declining economy. The focus of the tax proposal has shifted to short-term rentals, causing concern among rental homeowners. While supporters argue that the tax is necessary to address the affordable housing crisis, opponents fear it will lead to higher rental rates and force many short-term rental owners out of business. The potential impact on the housing market is significant, with rising insurance and taxes potentially pricing many people out of the market.
In the medical field, there is a growing concern about a lack of critical thinking and creativity among doctors.

The hope for change is expressed as more doctors enter alternative fields and patients seek non-conventional treatments.
In international news, Craig Moberly, a former United Nations (UN) official, has resigned after 31 years of service, citing concerns about the UN’s approach to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Moberly criticized the UN’s focus on a two-state solution, which he deemed impossible and inadequate in addressing the human rights violations and inequality faced by the Palestinian people. He argued for a shift towards a one-state solution based on human rights, fighting against apartheid, and ensuring the right of return and compensation for Palestinians.
Meanwhile, the concept of Digital Identity is gaining traction as the gateway to a digital camp, part of the biopolitical paradigm of the West.

In energy news, a bottleneck caused by a lack of diesel and jet fuel supply is causing concern. The self-organizing economy tends to eliminate non-essential parts when faced with bottlenecks, which could include collapsing governments. The importance of diesel and jet fuel in transportation, agriculture, and electricity generation is highlighted, along with the limitations of green energy.
Public opinion supports a war between Israel and Palestine, with individuals attributing their pro-war stance to the media’s portrayal of the conflict. The role of the media in shaping public opinion and the possibility of manipulation by certain governments to achieve hidden agendas are discussed.
Finally, the concept of the Great Reset, an economic recovery plan developed by the World Economic Forum (WEF) in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, is under scrutiny. The initiative aims to prioritize sustainable development in rebuilding from the global crisis. However, the stakeholder capitalism model promoted by the WEF, which seeks to privatize national assets and reshape governance systems, is criticized. The shift from a juridical to a biopolitical paradigm of governance, where technologies of biopower regulate and control citizens’ lives, is explored. The interdependence of these apparatuses and their potential to fundamentally change the social contract between citizens and the state is highlighted.
