I think US military thinking like that is going away. More centralization and command like the Russians. No action without authorization.

NO. COMEBACK!!!!

I actually saw this on my Excel teacher’s adult ed blog (he was in the Navy).

Heddy Lamar, Ahead of Her Time

In 1941, together with co-inventor George Antheil, she submitted her secret radio-guided torpedo system which allowed a torpedo to switch (or hop) between 88 different frequencies, making it virtually impossible for the enemy to track and detect the incoming torpedo. 

The system was so advanced the US Navy said it was unworkable and poured scorn on the explanation that certain parts of it worked like the fundamental mechanism of a player piano. Technology did eventually catch up and in 1962 her system was finally put in place by the Navy.

nakednihilism asked: How do you distinguish between power and freedom?

Ah, this is a fantastic question (albeit one that sets up a philosophic punchline). I would first look at the lexical definitions. Citing Oxford Dictionaries Online, the definition I found most applicable is the following: 2.1 Political or social authority or control, especially that exercised by a government.

Likewise, freedom is defined as: 1. The power or right to act, speak, or think as one wants without hindrance or restraint.

One can argue that the people have more power the more freedom they have, and vice-versa. However, power cannot be “given” to the people, it must be self-assimilated. And freedom cannot be “given” to the people, because this implies that those in “power” are the ones who grant it, which is self-contradictory.

In short, power is the force which any given entity possesses, but it is most commonly known by our society as the ability to use that force in an intrusive manner. Freedom, on the other hand, is the absence of this kind of consolidated power, giving everyone equal opportunity for the pursuit of happiness. Therefore, the pipe-dream of voluntaryism is the only completely moral ‘political’ ideal.
