But Now You Know

The search for truth in human action


now-you-knowThis site has its origins before the word “Blog” existed. Back then its owner, Kaz, was simply thought of as having a website that published socio-political articles with regularity…But the only real difference was that the RSS/XML protocals were not yet used this way.

The website was known as Site of the Sentient, a reference to the famous Words of the Sentient, that Kaz had been editing for years previously.

When some random portal site hijacked the domain siteofthesentient.com, it was a dark time for the human knowledge quest. Fortunately, But Now You Know is striving to take up the slack, and even has some revamped versions of the original articles, for example Conscription, is it Slavery, and How to Get Out of Jury Duty, and be a hero instead of a bad citizen.

Kaz is a writer, graphic artist, and supplements his income by being a hardcore senior web developer.

Along with this blog, you can track his efforts with the dedicated facebook page here.

  1. I just got an idea on voucher education. What if you made a bill that had private school vouchers, but did not cut any of the current spending on education which usually goes to support the unions. In fact the bill would included a pay RAISE for teachers PLUS the increased expenditure of the Vouchers. Maybe it would be enough for the democrats and republicans to come to a “bipartisan” agreement and pass the bill, and in the meanwhile, many kids would be wained off the public school system, but the teachers unions will be happy bc they are getting the same amount of money, if not more. My theory is that if you got enough kids off the public school system, then it will be easier to make the spending cuts bc the Unions wouldn’t be able to hold the entire state to ransom to the same degree. It’s like using increased spending as bate.

    If this seems like a viable approach, then maybe it can be applied to a myriad of other situations.

    • I think part of the problem is that teachers’ unions aren’t stupid and always will fight any effort to remove their monopoly. But monopoly is (or at least used to be) illegal in the US, for good reason.

      It doesn’t hurt to try a new good idea and take on the monopoly when the need arises. Perhaps by using the ACLU cleverly?
