It is not just that. They exploit differences in laws, pay rate, and workers protections to exploit proletariat in both countries. They use illegal immigrants basically like scabs. Letting your concerns fall into "durr if you do not like such thing you are racist!" makes you useful idiot to Capitalists just as much as actual poltards are for not understanding problem isn't that they are brown, problem is that they are scabs being used to gut worker protections, drive down wages, create dissonance in proletariet, and destroy power of unions among other things. Labor is seen as product under Capitalism. By flooding every developed country with immigrants it is like flooding markets with oil. They flood labor market with Turks or Mexicans or whoever to floor value of labor, drive up competition, drive down wages.

You ignoring such things does not make you enlightened. I do not think, you even understand how retarded you people are sounding from proletarian standpoint and it is very easy to see how Democrat corporate wing is being used to alienate workers so they vote against own interests. Similar thing happens throughout EU. So they say, well if you do not like it is because only racism against Somalis or Turks or Poles or whoever, letting such cancerous filth as AfD or UKIP or Tories swallow up votes because you are not listening. But, at least UK has Labour, for all such traitorous bullshit they pull on workers also at times.

Maybe, you should take again point of workers not wanting to get fucked by Capitalist interests instead of putting another Capitalist dildo in your brain like Biden or any Republican? Maybe, what you should do is actually take side of workers and take their issues seriously? Did you ever consider?

Mexican workers want the same shit as you and me: a roof over our heads, a well stocked pantry, and to wake up warm and dry. Solidarity is the solution to the disproportionate shit they receive: you organize with them to equalize conditions, suddenly your bosses can't fuck you like they used to.

But if you embrace some racist bullshit, and try to work with your boss against the Mexican workers, you're only fucking yourself. Competition among workers is controlled by effective and real solidarity, not by borders. If you expect the government to come in and solve this for you, you're going to be left wanting. The workers of this world have to work together to win what's in their collective interest. Don't fuck this up.

Then, you wonder why so much of worker has been turning against Democratic party. No no let us just fuck Bernie Sanders from nomination and elect another right wing racist like Biden except he also do not tell people he will elect home labor either. Clearly, this has nothing to do with you being Capitalisms useful idiot.

>organize with them
Yes. But, all you seem to do is want more bourgeois and tell them pull themself up by boot straps while being hostile to own proletariet. It funny, when many you do such thing from upper middle class background. Then you wonder, why they resent my bourgeoisie mcmansion raised ass? Clearly, is because they all is stupid.

Americans who oppose mass immigration should be way more critical of Mormons not just for having massive families, but also for directly encouraging and benefitting from mass Hispanic immigration by bringing in more potential converts.

But for some weird reason, conservatives always overlook the Mormons and blame everyone else instead. Weird.

In a sense even Amazon itself including online retail and cloud services are vital infrastructure. And destroying that not only would accomplish nothing if you want to get rid of robber-baron type capitalist it actively helps them.
They are insured against that type of damage and they even get a chance to play the victim.

The way to deal with them is either with the power of the state breaking them up and or nationalizing them. If you don't think you don't think we can't get back control of the state the alternative is some sort of uprising.

As a species I feel like we have 3 options:

1) Things hit an upward trend and start improving toward post-scarcity
2) Nothing changes, the downward spiral continues and French Revolution 2: We're All French Now hits - and how that turns out I'm not smart enough to even guess at
3) Nothing changes, the downward spiral continues and eventually, inevitably, leads to the destruction of Earth and most likely humanity with it. The current status quo is unsustainable and predestined for failure

This is an important time but I don't think this is the time. The bread and circuses are still running too efficiently. In my best uneducated guesstimation, by the end of our lives (so ~60+ years from now) we'll be able to have a mostly half-decent idea of where we're headed. Global warming will have had made not insignificant parts of the planet uninhabitable, wealth inequality will have just kept getting worse, and the number of people tired of it all will have grown with it.

Any arbitrary amount of social unrest does not necessarily lead to revolution.

Second discontent with people's position in society is proportional to their relative wealth not their absolute wealth.
It's not necessary to get so bad that people are literally starving on the streets, they're just as pissed if they can't keep their parent's living standards or realize their poverty compared to the ruling class.

Third it doesn't take that much, a few vital industries in general strike are enough, however nothing gonna happen until it's worldwide. Let's say all airline, shipping and rail workers do it, then it's done. Or IT infrastructure, or energy, or just one vital resource like say rare earths.
The system is incredibly fragile but only on a global scale because multinationals don't give a shit about your borders.

It doesn't have to be that bloody, could be, but doesn't have to. My personal pet theory is because the capitalists are high on their own supply they might not be able to react in time or react at all. This lack of resistance might turn out to be the easy way out for them.
But I make no assumptions of how likely that is, possibly not at all.

>3) Nothing changes, the downward spiral continues and eventually, inevitably, leads to the destruction of Earth and most likely humanity with it. The current status quo is unsustainable and predestined for failure
While in principle I agree I do think we're talking a very long time-span imho. The energy budget of civilization is still quite minuscule compared to the total energy available. Sure there will be crisis, deep ones at that but nowhere near as severe as apocalyptic pop culture and the environmental movement (which has been co-opted by the bourgeois for a long time) would make it seem. Vat grown food under artificial light, Mass PV panels and arcologies can be built in capitalism too.
It would take a few unprecedented economic collapses till they figure out how to do it with exploitation intact but it wouldn't wipe out humanity or life on earth because at that scale negative feedback comes into play, acting as a self limiting factor for the crisis.

Not to mention the idea of an assembly line that's misattributed to him is the apotheosis of capitalist alienation, whenever he's taught about in this shithole, it's always through the lens of "whoa that's kewl so many cars!" but the concept is actually actively driving workers insane. There's no way to be more alienated from the product of your labor than to only be responsible for one tiny little part of it. It's a disgusting concept designed only to benefit the ruling class and the expense of the rest of our souls. He, like all industrialists and billionaires, was an evil man. Also none too fond of the Jews and repeatedly praised Adolf Hitler.

This is a natural consequence of industrialization. All of your contextual blabberjaw about billionaires and the Jewish conspiracy is nothing but snakeoil.

Capitalism was a necessary phase to develop the means of production, but it's been holding us back for well over a century.

In any case, some billionaire allocating .01% of the wealth he has stolen from the workers to do a slightly less harmful version of what he was going to do anyway does not justify the wealth he controls.
We could democratically allocate hundreds of times more labor to midigating climate change and developing clean industry if we cut Bezos and all the effort that goes into expanding his control of our labor out of the picture.

The perspective articles like OP are designed to produce is "We should continue to allocate 99% of the wealth we produce to the capitalist class and they will fix climate change out of their benevolence".

I am pointing how absurd this perspective is by highlighting out the conflict of interest between the capitalist class that has us using our labor to destroy the planet for their benefit and disseminate articles like OP and Ford's paper to maintain that arrangement.

Just like mail and healthcare, if it's nationalized, we can get better conditions for the workers and better service as the company leadership will be beholden to society rather than the profit of Jeff Bezos.

Breaking up the bell system just created regional monopolies that weren't governed by the same regulations such as universal service and a profit cap that applied to ma bell.
The baby bells proceeded to buy each other up and the overall effect was that instead of building better infrastructure or funding R&D, the revenue these companies made exploiting their local monopolies went directly into the shareholder's pockets.

Bezos has a history of employing security contractors like SIS who have accusations against them such as experimenting on homeless people so I doubt it would happen but that is at least a real world preposition.

Here is an interview with a security contractor turned whistle blower exposing the scifi level of tech Bezos' cronies employed

Kind of sounds like the point. Personally I think its happening and the whole "we're special thats why its happening to us" is probably just a defense mechanism. As far as the greater purpose who the hell knows possibly individual reasons in each case or population/individual selected.

Imagine you're a rich asshole oligarch and you would like to change things about society. You could give homeless people full crazy in hopes they eliminate themselves while simultaneously studying the effects of progressive "mental illness" plus "yeah right they're just crazy homeless drug addicts". The government has also been developing neuroweapons for years. Possibly its some backdoor research program in the weaponization of novel medical technology ala government contractors.

The one thing that gets me about it is that many of the victims are otherwise sane individuals and report physical effects not associated with any mental illness such as ringing in the ears and pressure in the head much like the people at the US embassy in Havana. Oh wait never mind they all got brain damage from "crickets and pesticides"

It's not that hard to figure out.

The kind of Burger who chooses to work at a US embassy in an enemy country (especially a Latin American country) is the kind of person who is more than willing to lie for the pruposes of smearing official state enemies and furthering imperial ambitions in the area. At worst the people working in that embassy are outright spies and spooks with actual blood on their hands; at best they're enthusiatic water-carriers for imperialist propaganda and destabilisation.

Combine that with the well-documented phenomenon of Mass Psychogenic Illness and it's no mystery at all why "otherwise sane individuals" would be willing to play along with that shit.

Oh god, you're on this board too. How about you just accept your bias because you believe this is happening to you personally.

Interesting perspective. So in your opinion it wasnt actually the foreign country but the owners of the embassy.

>>188115
The contrary "evidence" in the Havana embassy case is someone said it was probably crickets that caused the ringing in the ears. The supporting evidence is the TBI all the diplomats shared. If you're throwing around tinfoil cases I guess that leaves me having to say you're brainwashed if you dont believe that a study documenting unique TBI presents in the diplomats could be caused by something unknown to the public.

I never mentioned anything about myself but I have believed that microwave weapons were used in Havana when the news broke about it long before I knew of anything like it being used in settings other than political. I also used to think anyone who made claims of these weapons being used against them were crazy but whistle blowers have come out saying Amazon has employed private security that had used these devices on the homeless population near their facilities. It's not really as scifi as you think its basically a microwave with the door taken off lmao

If that was real, there'd be more than a couple whistle blowers. These are supposed to be highly classified government weapons. If some private security goons have them then it'd be something you could buy off of Amazon lol. This is a 2nd amendment nations; it's one thing to say the government has them but an entirely other thing to say private security has them. If that were the case, you could buy it in the free market or read advertisements about in your subscription to NRA monthly.

How many guns can you buy off amazon buddy?

Do you really think people want that advertised? If the populace knew about it they would want it regulated. No one is going to be able to buy it and then it loses the mystique of being secret. If people actually believed you when you said you were being attacked with microwave weapons because they saw an advertisement for one they might as well just come up to you and punch you in the face.

It isn't an advanced concept at all dude. You can stick your head in the sand if you want but the matter of fact is that microwaves are not difficult to produce you probably have one in your house. The people who go into that line of work get off on the power, not exactly a whistle blower does that make.

I'm not sure I follow. I'm not saying that you can literally buy guns on Amazon, that was hyperbole. However, there would be ads for these weapons especially if private goons are using them. There are a million advertisement videos on youtube by weapons manufacturers for crowd dispersal devices, smoke bombs, flash bangs, noise guns you name it. The weapons enthusiast crowd which includes employers and security guys would know about, they have their own magazines that keep them up to date on the latest and greatest tech. You're talking about money, and that's what guns are: money. Nobody is walking around with a microwave weapon except maybe the government, certainly not private sector security goons.

I'm just trying to inject some common sense and logic into the conversation.

I understand your logic but I disagree because the clandestine nature of these weapons are their appeal. I think that if people knew about them they would demand regulation and possible all out bans. The ability to do harm to others with little to no attribution is also the appeal. If someone was targeting you for some reason and you told them you were being hurt with microwave weapons they would just say you're crazy and you could possibly have a nice 72hour stay somewhere. If advertisement for these products took place in an open market the knowledge of their use would lessen their appeal.

Where are advertisements for illegal drugs, sex slaves, assassinations, extortion/black mail, chemical weapons? This list goes on. The black market is an economy of it's own. Really silly where are the advertisements for South American coups?
