Agree with you. What I can't understand however is why people want to pretend they know something they don't. All human beings have talents. Why don't they focus on themm instead of what they don't command.

Universities don't only use software to scan student's work. The ones that get caught are also suspended. On my alma mater, which is the Swedish equivalent to Harvard, they catch people stealing content on a continuous basis. Mind you it's only a small fraction of students who are cheating.

Sometimes it's actually deception which is worse than plagiarism. When it comes to academia you always have to have references normally using the Harvard or Oxford systems. You can not claim even the most obvious thing in for example a thesis without a reference.

The kind of questions you mention on Facebook are not crowdsourcing. They are usually harmful questions that are used in ways detrimental to society. Just think about how Cambridge Analytica abused such questionaires to influence the US election in 2016. You have to use reputable crowdsourcing sites.

Yes, it's sad isn't it, Susan. And it's the main reason democracy is in danger of becoming a thing of the past.

Glad you agree it could be a viable option. Like with everything else in life there are no guarantees. You may fail but the same applies to getting an investor.

Not surprised you agree with me, Debra. But it's more than that. Neoliberalism has ruined the world and most likely democracy will be ruined by it. Sigh...

Absolutely. According to the World Bank 10 % of the population of the West have to survive on $1.90 a day despite the fact that less than $21 is considered poverty in the West.

Good points you make, Sotia. And it will not change because neoliberalism is the name of the game for global economics. We hence have fascist parties taking over in Europe. Recently in Italy.
