Back when I invested, a diverse portfolio was indeed useful – and fun. I got to look into unexpected places and learned a lot about investment vehicles and the goings on in different parts of the planet — what was the up and coming programming communities in Brazil and the growing investment opportunties in SubSaharan African continent – and this was about 20 years ago. Did well having a diverse portfolio, including things I didn’t ethically care for (natural gas but it was a transport company which I could justify ethnically).
Computers around the world are synchronized within a few seconds of each other by the beat of common clocks. Even if the times are set differently or incorrectly, the “beat” of time is within tolerances. If the tempo was too different, no pseudo “real-time” online multiplayer games would be possible as the tolerances are small (players can only tolerate controller response diversity of about 50ms without noticing and will play slightly longer lag times as well), although store-and-forward communication such as facebook would be fine.
I want to understand what Ian Willis is specifically talking about but it is vague at present. I can only guess.
TV ads are easy to fix: Stop watching TV or find a TV channel that shows only the people you want on it. Get online and you can go places that only have exactly what you want and nothing else but what you want.
Entertainment options are diverse which means they include your tastes too.
What is government imposing specifically?
Is this a problem of service providers not providing you the services you want in the ways you want the services provided to you?
=====“Diversity is being imposed by the government” does not mean anything.Diversity of culture is being imposed by the government still does not mean anything.What is being asked of you that you do not want?
“I do not want to to have to…” what?
===So:a) Where you live is changing from when you were a child.That is common. Styles change, times change. Change is often annoying. Younger changes things in ways older does not like. That is universal and I do not think much can be done unless one want to impose a strict changeless regime. Some do that as their solution but it does not usually end well.Given that things do change, which includes regime changes, migration patterns, etc, are there changes that you are ok or can live with and which ones are unacceptable?Or are all and any unacceptable to you?—-
