Also, organized crime is always part of how multinationals work (all capitalism, in fact, uses organized crime), and organized crime is there to subvert democracy.
All governments use violence, and all corporations are chartered by governments, who determine what is legal and illegal. Taking from someone according to their ability implies both theft and slavery, while giving to people according only to their needs implies subsistence. So communism/socialism pretty much runs on what would otherwise be described as criminal behavior if it weren't state sanctioned. Such is the nature of governments.

Coronavirus has made that ever clear.

Or quash facts or omit stories. In the instant case, Dawit Kelete is black and that is rarely mentioned in the mainstream media. They haven't even arrived at a charging decision yet, because they would be putting away a black man for killing white Black Lives Matter protesters--as I've characterized it, the mother of all ironies.

No mention of race in the title, or of BLM. The survivor seems completely unaware that she was run over by a black guy.
Summer Taylor, a 24-year-old veterinary clinic worker, suffered critical injuries and died Saturday night. Diaz Love, 32, from Portland, Oregon, was in serious condition.
“I’m alive and stable,” Love posted on Facebook late Sunday. "In a lot of pain. I cannot believe Summer was murdered. If they thought this murder would make us back down, they are very wrong. Very wrong."
Love also said,“My FB is filled with death threats, that and only being able to use one hand has me going slow. I deeply appreciate and feel all the love y’all are sending me.”
How weird it is that someone goes from Portland to Seattle to protest that Black Lives Matter on the freeway and then gets run over by a black guy. Democrats are just so bizarre.

Seems like you can't walk a mile in any direction without coming across a public space. The public spaces are quite nice too, if you don't mind seeing junkies shooting up everywhere in broad daylight.
Yeah, it's definitely not because they have nowhere else to protest.

What retards. These people can't even protest effectively.
