Space architectures capable of supporting a permanent human presence on Mars are extraordinarily complex, with many different interdependent systems.
Authoritarian systems evolve. Authoritarianism in the Internet Age is not your old Cold War authoritarianism.
China's censorship and propaganda systems may be complex and multilayered, but they are obviously not well coordinated.
I very seldom worry about other systems. I concentrate pretty fully on just making Linux the best I can.

Frans de Waal
I spent my life studying communism and Soviet systems.
You fall in love with somebody who fits within what I call your 'love map,' an unconscious list of traits that you build in childhood as you grow up. And I also think that you gravitate to certain people, actually, with somewhat complementary brain systems.
Engineers are now experimenting with 4,096-line TV systems, suggesting that with the next generation of sets you'll be able to count the grass blades on the Superbowl field, an obvious lifestyle improvement.
There are systems called zero discharge emission systems that would prevent any pollution from making it into the water or the air.
That inefficiency is masked because growth and progress are measured in money, and money does not give us information about ecological systems, it only gives information about financial systems.

I loved logic, math, computer programming. I loved systems and logic approaches. And so I just figured architecture is this perfect combination.
Nuclear proliferation is on the rise. Equipment, material and training were once largely inaccessible. Today, however, there is a sophisticated worldwide network that can deliver systems for producing material usable in weapons.
People have a right to have their lives witnessed; if we coexist with the systems that abuse people, then we have a duty to understand.
General Atomics, the progenitor of General Atomics Aeronautical Systems, started life in 1955 when a major military contractor, General Dynamics, feared that the military hardware market might dry up. It began exploring peacetime uses of atomic energy, but abandoned the effort when cold-war military spending took off.
One goal of the Clean Water Act of 1972 was to upgrade the nation's sewer systems, many of them built more than a century ago, to handle growing populations and increasing runoff of rainwater and waste.
