I am reading up on Bitcoin right now. It is very interesting. It is frightening the banks and credit card companies. But they don't know how to stop it. I think it is very interesting. If there was a way to to make the internet hard to be controlled from any one central group of corporations and became this behemoth without any control at all?

Eliminating petro dollars and competing currencies and just tying all the currency value into one block with absolutely no way of hacking into it because it is in a cloud that is accessible to everyone....something that is there and uncontrollable....but that can be regulated. Regulated but not controllable? That is fascinating.

It's amazing that capitalism isn't happy enough destroying the natural environment, but it's destroying the virtual environment as well.

Everything it touches turns to strip malls and Midas Muffler shops.

Their abuse of the English language mostly. The liberals call themselves conservatives and always go on about how much they hate liberals, the social democrats call themselves liberals and refuse to even recognise the term social democrat. People label centre right types like the neo-Con Hillary Clinton or Obama as left wing or even as socialists. It wouldn't matter if the US is a backwater but it isn't. Its media is all powerful and its terminology will spread.

Once basic political definitions are twisted to mean the opposite of what they mean and have meant for centuries it will make meaningful historical analysis and political debate in the English language impossible (you only need to look at pofo to see the truth of that).

Capitalism is also destroying the intellectual and semiotic environments.

Well Decky, the truth is that the Yankees are propaganda masters who twist and distort and re-write history to suit their own purposes. Welcome to my world. :D

The Immortal Goon wrote:Indeed!

The US has the highest price for the slowest internet in the industrial world because the big companies make the most money from charging as much as possible for the slowest service.

Trump presupposes that maybe letting these same companies charge even more for even slower services will result in the companies throwing every cent they have into a community pot for no apparent reason.

...let’s see who is right


He believes no such thing. He is just corrupt, but of course you know that...

This isn't the first time a capitalist elite has concluded this. America, Canada, Australia and Israel were all created by a mixture of fear and ignorance. It's a winning formula from the past that comes back in style whenever we're on the verge of transforming into something better than capitalism and consumerism.

Blocking and slowing alternative and new ideas... will ensure that the public is ignorant of its own cultural and intellectual production.


Yep, they cannot win a honest and open discussion any more, so they decided to apply their old and discredited Bolshevik censorship. "Freedom" was just a game, this game does not work any more for their interests, so they are ready to sacrifice it.

The Soviets had the full control over every media and every institution, but they lost the control of the minds of people and at the end the apparatchinks and their propaganda became a laughing stock.

You cannot control the mind of people with such primitive and discredited methods, you cannot change their opinion this way... except low-IQ-people

The globalist elite is in panic, they are so desperate that they now have to apply totalitarian methods and they hope that this can prolong their agony.
