Sure, tunnel building is difficult, but these are engineering problems that can be overcome if the benefits are high enough. Remember that we went to the moon because it was hard, not because it was e...

I'm no engineer, but the more I think about tunnels for transport, the more it seems a no-brainer.
There are huge advantages over above ground multi-level roadways that weave between skyscrapers...

2D/3D transportation thingy is not my theory, it's Elon Musk's. I just think it's a really good way to look at the problem of traffic congestion.
It's not a question of "finite" levels above or...

Musk's point is that 3D below ground can expand to match increasing 3D living above ground, thereby eliminating gridlock once and for all.
The only way to "expand" 2D is to make the finite space...

Ants are great, but they are missing the ability to imagine, think, plan, be creative, learn, figure stuff out, etc. Musk has argued that in a dense city, we live in 3D space, but we travel in 2D - th...

I'm not being devil's advocate. If ants can do it, why not humans? If one tunnel gets blocked (eg. vehicle breakdown), then cars could automatically take a different route - a bit like the internet.<...

Since all cars in the tunnel will be driving fully autonomously (or on an electric skate driving fully autonomously), they will be much faster and safer than on the road which has unpredictable elemen...

Should the President's employer, the people, have access to the President's tax returns? 
And if the President is under investigation for fraud, should prosecutors have the access to the Presi...

In Norway, all tax returns are open to the public. Norwegian citizens also know who looks at their tax return. LINK Transparency is the best tool in the fight against corruption.

I didn't really want to get into specific examples of government spending, more the idea that changing our perspective on tax, can make a profound difference to our lives.

"Maybe instead of taxing so much, they could reduce spending..." I don't think that's a good way of thinking about tax. If you see tax as investment rather than cost, then everything ...

Please stop, you're giving academia a bad name. Even your latest response alone is full of inaccuracies.
