Massive Misconceptions #1: The Rule of Law
The rule of law is a hackneyed phrase. It’s one those giant misconceptions usually trotted out by people intent on proving how richer 1st world nations are more better than poorer 2nd and 3rd world nations, or how no one can supposedly get away with crime because we are all equal before the law. Yes, I would prefer to live in a society where disputes can be resolved without resorting to gang-style violence. However, even nations with the purported rule of law still have deal with gang problems – and they do this by centralizing power all under one roof, claiming a monopoly on violence and calling it “Government”. When you replace lots of smaller gangs with one bigger gang, it is doubtful you have increased your safety or freedom at all; in fact, in many ways, you have decreased it, since you have created a organization with the power to enslave you on a far grander scale.

Scientists have made the best artificial sperm yet, and they’re breeding mice with it.
Scientists have used embryonic stem cells to grow the most effective ‘test-tube’ sperm cells ever, demonstrating how they can be used to fertilise mouse eggs, and produce healthy, fertile offspring.
The cells are the first in the world to meet a set of criteria known as the ‘gold standard’ for artificial sperm, set by three fertility researchers in 2014. “The achievements of this paper are very remarkable,” John Schimenti of Cornell University, one of the researchers who defined the gold standard, told New Scientist. “I’m not aware of another group having progressed this far.”
