Kitchen Table Kibitzing Friday: Hawks and Doves on Mars, complete with trolls

3 min read

“A GIANT PULSATING MIND IS A TERRIBLE THING TO WASTE”

Kitchen Table Kibitzing is a community series for those who wish to share a virtual kitchen table with other readers of Daily Kos who aren’t throwing pies at one another. Drop by to talk about music, your weather, your garden, or what you cooked for supper…. Newcomers may notice that many who post in this series already know one another to some degree, but we welcome guests at our kitchen table and hope to make some new friends as well.

Is #MarsHelicopter Ingenuity a Hawk or a Dove, or is it a Chicken. as they say at Mars University, “Knowledge Brings Fear”. Because we need to start eating like Martians.

The ship flies over a sign reading “Mars University. Knowledge Brings Fear” and lands in an empty space on the campus grounds.] [Time Lapse. Farnsworth takes Fry, Leela and Bender on a tour of the university grounds. They walk past a statue of a big-skulled Martian with octopus-like tentacles wielding a laser gun on horseback.] theinfosphere.org/…

More specifically, can we “ imagine a Twitter as a kind of non-cooperative game, one in which there is no external authority to establish rules which enforcing cooperative behavior. Individual actions and reactions decide if or when cooperation happens between players.”

Fortunately, a Mars helicopter can be either/both hawk and dove until that moment when the Elon Musk helicopter arrives, because like Twitter, Musk is merely a capitalist troll, much like Trump is not a hawk but a dove, despite Twitter and Facebook.
