All I can think is that this is way worse than what Microsoft was doing, at least it's on a way, way, way bigger scale. You can get a smartphone with decent specs for $400. In the time of the M$ lawsuit, Windows 95 machines started at three times that, if you're talking about retail, and this was over 20 years ago. You can't remove Facebook, you can't remove YouTube, Chrome services are built into the OS, how is this not the same as Microsoft? How is it not worse?

America's gestapo had a big month. Some highlights.

Massive raids in Mississippi dissappear over 600 migrant workers, leaving hundreds of kids without parents. Workers who fought for labor rights and better conditions were specifically targeted. None of the bosses who knowing broke the law were arrested:

>The Chinese government is harvesting and selling organs from persecuted religious and ethnic minorities on an industrial scale, the UN Human Rights Council has been told.

>Speaking at the council’s headquarters in Geneva on Tuesday, lawyer Hamid Sabi presented the findings of the China Tribunal, an independent tribunal on allegations of forced organ harvesting.

>The China Tribunal was chaired by Sir Geoffrey Nice QC, a prosecutor at the international criminal tribunal for the former Yugoslavia who led the case against Slobodan Milošević, and heard evidence from human rights investigators, medical experts and witnesses.

>It concluded that there was clear evidence China had been extracting organs from, and thereby killing, members of the Falun Gong spiritual group for at least 20 years, and that the practice was ongoing today.

>The tribunal said there was also possible evidence, though in less volume, of forced organ harvesting in detainees from the Uighur Muslim minority, as well as Tibetans and some Christian sects.

>China has repeatedly denied the use of unethical organ transplant practices, and said that it stopped using the organs from executed prisoners in 2015. In a statement earlier this year, it accused the London-based China Tribunal of perpetuating “rumours”.

Every time the government bombs a country, bans free speech, confiscates guns, wiretaps people, seizes property, tortures, and kills people then you are responsible.

>A US police officer who was fired after shooting dead an unarmed man was temporarily rehired so he could apply for a pension, local media report.

Warning, don't watch my OP webm if you don't want bad vibes. The man behind the gun was fired from the Mesa PD and later acquitted of murder charges. He was then re-hired for a period of 42 days so that he could submit an application for medical retirement based on accidental disability, namely PTSD from the murder in webm related, thereby qualifying him for a lifetime monthly pension if approved.

As a resident of Arizona this case shocked me, as did the footage, and as soon as this scumbag's pic popped up in the news I recognized him. It was in fact the OP image I used when I made the original thread about this incident.

It just goes to show that once again the rules do not apply to those with power, or those they favor.

Truly disgusting and abhorrent. I am very upset by this.

Hong Kong citizens are protesting a potential bill which has since been suspended which will allow extradition to other countries including mainland China. People don't want to get disappeared by Xi so they are taking to the streets. Chill on this source, it's BBC's youtube channel, the original video was some gay iPlayer shit only available in the UK.

>There's nothing inherently wrong with being a liberal.
Says the guy who wants to let Philip Morris monopolize legal weed so their R&D teams can patent Cool Ranch Joints with fancy plastic packaging.

Liberalism turns people's brains into mush, training them to see life as a commoditized, technocratic sales pitch to the highest colonial bidder. Liberals have built an ideologynout of negotiating away every possible good step forward we could make in the world because they are terrified of upsetting their surrogate daddy in the form of the capital class. There's a reason why liberals always, always prefer the far-right to even moderate leftist reforms, and that is because to be a liberal is to be a lapdog for capitalism and a waiting mook for the right wing.

Liberals backstabbed the left time and again, liberals gave us Reagan Bush and Trump, and liberals will get us all fucking killed because they are ideologically incapable of standing up to the right.

UBI is quintessential neoliberalism, it's a minimization of the welfare state advocated by the likes of Milton Friedman and Friedrich von Hayek. Wealth taxes are just old fashioned Keynesian nonsense. I'm not going to try and More Left Than Thou you by saying that the really left-wing solution is socialist planning but let's get real. Your idea of the left is Elizabeth Warren, and mine is Peter Kropotkin.

>I think you might have jizzed in your pants.

Can you explain what you mean without being dismissive? Libertarian socialism is an old ass political movement with real institutions of its own, meager as they currently are. Strengthening the movement - something desirable to me as a libertarian socialist - means learning from the victories and defeats of other movements operating in parallel to our own.

re: my views
I do recognize the root cause of the current worldwide economic and social problems to be the lack of direct access to resources and automation for the general population. And I do think that plain and boring government regulations can be effective to address these problems.
If it were up to me I'd introduce a proposal that would mandate that every technological product in use by a public institution be it software, hardware or wetware must be under a copyleft license.
For the second part of the equation, interestingly Hong Kong is an example that takes an interesting approach. Land is owned by the public and it is leased to private entities. Now in the case of HK that's very capital centric, but it doesn't have to be.

Similar symptoms, yes but not necessarily the same intermediate causes. I do admit I am not familiar enough with the economic situation in HK.
I'm sure the housing shortage and work prospects for the current generation are a catalyst. But my point was more about the reason for the protest in general.
And that's certainly about human rights, something we can for granted in comparison to the Hong Kongers.

The government is not legitimate.

The globalists give campaign donations and cushy job promises to politicians to run up the debt, start wars, and make laws that enslave Americans. The Gestapo enforces the decrees. Americans obey the laws.

The only reason the system works now is that everyone thinks the government is legit. If no one obeyed, the system would crumble.

The government and illegal aliens don't obey the law.

Why should Americans?

You cannot vote for freedom because the US is not a democracy. The election machines can be hacked.

You wouldn't pay money to the mafia. Why should you give money to the government?

Don't get marriage licenses, birth certificates, business licenses, passports, driver licenses, or fishing licenses. Don't register for the draft or fill out census forms.

Don't obey the law. If straws are illegal, use a straw. If baseball hats are illegal, wear a baseball cap.

Stop paying taxes.

The elites can't kill us all. There are not enough jails.

Drop out today. Go Galt. Go off the grid.

Americans shouldn't walk around like everything is fine when the US is bankrupt warmongering police state.

It's not just "the west" and it's not just China. It is primarily the policies and actions of the government of the People's Republic of China that antagonize "the west" and other directions - because it's not like just the "the west" has complaints. It's mostly just that westerners can complain louder. The behaviour of certain tourists is a different issue and, while one should judge individuals individually, it is easy to get a bad reputation when a bunch of people whom have never travelled gain the chance to do so.


Secondly it's not like China is singled out. China barely gets a mention amid the spectacular shows on offer elsewhere. Now that Bejing has bought Ankara it's not like the Uighurs have much more to turn to than other beleaguered minorities around the world who generally face far less influential opponents than the PRC.

https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/elections/2019/03/06/trump-quinnipiac-university-poll/3076827002/

One of the first polls conducted since President Donald Trump's former attorney implicated him in illegal activity was released Tuesday, and most of the results were not very good for the president.

A poll from Quinnipiac University National found 64 percent of American voters believe Trump committed crimes before assuming office, while 24 percent did not believe that he had (another 13 percent said they weren't sure.) Forty-five percent said they think Trump committed crimes since taking office compared to 43 percent who think he did not.

The numbers among Republicans were better for the president, with a third saying they believe he committed crimes before taking office and 48 percent saying he did not. Only 12 percent of Republicans said Trump had committed crimes since taking office while 79 percent did not.

Trump's former attorney and fixer Michael Cohen — already convicted of lying to Congress – provided members of Congress explosive testimony on February 27, when he accused Trump of being part of a criminal conspiracy.

However, just 44 percent of respondents believed Cohen told the truth in his testimony before the House Oversight and Reform Committee. But half of them said they believed Cohen over Trump. Fifty-eight percent said Congress should do more to investigate Cohen's allegations.

"When two-thirds of voters think you have committed a crime in your past life, and almost half of voters say it's a tossup over whether you committed a crime while in the Oval Office, confidence in your overall integrity is very shaky," said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll. "Add to that, Michael Cohen, a known liar headed to the big house, has more credibility than the leader of the free world."

Only 30 percent of voters said they believe the president is honest, although two-thirds of Republicans still said he is trustworthy (95 percent of Democrats disagreed). Twenty-two percent of voters said they consider Trump to be a good role model for children compared with 54 percent of Republicans who said they do think he is a good role model.

The good news for the president: despite high numbers of voters saying they suspect him of illegal activity, only 35 percent said Congress should begin impeachment proceedings, while 59 percent said it should not.

Overall, the poll found Trump's job approval rating among voters was at 38 percent with 56 percent of voters saying they disapproved of his performance. That number stood in contrast to other recent polls that had placed the president's approval rating in the mid-to-low 40s.

On Sunday, an NBC News/Wall Street poll – much of which was conducted before Cohen testified – had his approval rating at 46 percent. And his RealClearPolitics average was at 44.4 percent, a mark it had only surpassed once since March 2017.

It is too early to tell if the Quinnipiac poll – which tends to find Trump's approval rating lower than his polling average – is an outlier or a signal that Cohen's testimony is having an impact.

Trump's approval rating in the poll mirrored that of congressional Democrats. Thirty-eight percent of voters said they approved of the job Democrats are doing and 56 percent said they disapproved. Congressional Republicans had a 27 percent approval rating while 66 percent said they disapproved of the job they were doing.

The poll was conducted from March 1-4 from among 1,120 voters with a margin of error of plus or minus 3.4 percent.

You can fish for carp, which are invasive and were brought here for the purpose of food, without a license. The fish that need to have their populations managed to ensure their survival and fish that are farm raised and stocked by state fish and wildlife into ponds both cost money to function. If it's not maintained through fees taxes will have to go up or the programs will be dismantled. I would rather have a sustainable salmon population than your very real homeless guy with ready access to waterfront property that contains only sport fish and literally not other means to feed himself. That seems like a corner you have to work pretty hard to get yourself into, maybe they can get help from social services in jail, I don't know and I don't care, the fish are more important to me.

Yeah, they're a mouthpiece for the Tory party who love privatising natural monopolies, letting the poor die to give tax cuts to the rich and so on.

For some reason I had some shit about social equality caught up in that too. Modern neolibs often don't discriminate by gender, sexuality, disability race etc, they just want the rich to enslave the subhuman poor but that's not actually part of the neolib deal. Just how they pretend they give a shit about people.

https://www.telesurenglish.net/news/Evo-Morales-Warns-Coup-Attempt-Underway-in-Bolivia-20191023-0002.html
>Bolivia’s leftist President Evo Morales gave a press conference early Wednesday morning in which he warned that a right-wing coup attempt is being carried out so as to stop the full counting of votes, and annul the result of Sunday's elections if it gives Morales a first-round victory.

>“A coup is underway, carried out by the right-wing with foreign support...what are the methods of this coup attempt? They’re not recognizing or waiting for election results, they’re burning down electoral courts, they want to proclaim the second-place candidate as the winner”, Morales told journalists assembled.

>Morales pointed to the fact he is in the first place and reiterated his victory. However, he also stated that “we are just waiting for the electoral court to report the results, I'm nearly certain that with the vote of the rural areas that we will win in the first round, even though the preliminary results show that we’ve won, but we are respectful and will wait for the official results from the electoral court. I say to the international press, our triumphs have always been with the rural vote.”

>Morales also thanked the Bolivian people for giving his ‘Movement Towards Socialism’ party majority in the legislature, though pointing out that his party has so far fallen short of a two-thirds supermajority.

>Anti-government right-wing protests turned violent Monday with numerous violent attacks took place across the country as preliminary results indicated that leftist President Evo Morales is on course for a first-round victory. Attacks included the burning down of vote counting centers and assaulting Indigenous supporters of Morales.

https://www.commondreams.org/news/2019/11/11/bolivian-coup-comes-less-week-after-morales-stopped-multinational-firms-lithium-deal
>The Sunday military coup in Bolivia has put in place a government which appears likely to reverse a decision by just-resigned President Evo Morales to cancel an agreement with a German company for developing lithium deposits in the Latin American country for batteries like those in electric cars.

>"Bolivia's lithium belongs to the Bolivian people," tweeted Washington Monthly contributor David Atkins. "Not to multinational corporate cabals."

>The Morales move on Nov. 4 to cancel the December 2018 agreement with Germany's ACI Systems Alemania (ACISA) came after weeks of protests from residents of the Potosí area. The region has 50% to 70% of the world's lithium reserves in the Salar de Uyuni salt flats.

>Among other clients, ACISA provides batteries to Tesla; Tesla's stock rose Monday after the weekend.

>Morales' cancellation of the ACISA deal opened the door to either a renegotiation of the agreement with terms delivering more of the profits to the area's population or the outright nationalization of the Bolivian lithium extraction industry.

Manufacturing Consent by Herman & Chomsky explains why these coups can occur without a peep from the american population. What's scary is that there is not a conspiracy causing this to happen but instead the structure of modern american media corporations leads to an unchallengeable bias against certain sympathetic perspectives of south american countries.

New mass shooting gernal.
