What I think of as the key problem with capitalism is that it commodifies things that should never be commodified, such as water, health care, the justice system/policing/penal code, housing, clean air, and -- dare I say it -- energy.

At the core of this faulty commodification paradigm is really that it is all built on a platform of benefit-of-the-few, rather than benefit-of-the-entire-natural-system. So here I don't reference any other system, like communism or socialism, bc any human system thus far has failed to be founded on solid principles that understand the nature of Reality itself.

Agree with all of this, as it's the same story over and over. One high-profile sacrificial goat. Maybe a lackey or two. Wash, rinse, repeat. No one higher-up, and no one integrally important, will be dealt with. Basically they'll pay the puppet-show characters to do some cushy "jail" time.

The only piece I don't agree with, is that it won't be house arrest this time, that would be too blatant. It won't be what they throw at whistle-blowers by any means, but instead he'll go to one of those country-club prisons like Madoff did.

His mansion in NYC (estimated today at US$77 million) was transferred by Wexner to one of Epstein's Virgin Island Shell companies for $0.

How to improve my helpless English? by Snow in AskSaidIt

[–]FormosaOolong 4 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 0 fun5 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

You do very well!

In my experience the best way to gain fluency is to practice, to chat with people live, as much as possible. Native speakers who don't speak your language are the best, because necessity forces your hand.

Next best, and really enjoyable, is to listen to music and watch movies with the lyrics/subtitles handy. It hones the listening skills, which are essential when talking with people outside of a classroom situation, because they'll talk fast, use slang, idioms etc. This is such a fun way to deepen your understanding and expand your vocabulary.

Anyhow, have fun with it -- the biggest leap is when you get over the fear of making an idiot of yourself! Once you feel free to make ridiculous mistakes (and you will) you will make huge leaps in your skills, as well as many very funny slips which will have the added bonus of causing hliarity!

Good luck! What's your native language, if you feel like sharing it?

This is abuse of and with the law, pure and simple. Abuse of the law with an endgame of killing journalism and ending the peoples' right and ability to call out the crimes of the people in so-called power. It's a disgusting display of pomp and cowardice.

Really getting sick of the corporate control freaks.

At this point I'd gladly go back to Web 1 circa 1996 even if I had to listen to that modem screech and wait three minutes for my page to load.

This is an incredible interview. This man is saying all the sane and moral things that need to be said. Too bad few are listening.

I was going to ask what would be the point of killing him once the truth was fully out, but then I remembered all the "suicides" and "accidents" that have happened to people who have exposed heinous crimes.

I guess I meant at this point, why not drop it while he still breathes?

I gather from his letter though that he really can't communicate freely with anyone. I had hoped that the book he was carrying upon arrest was the secret signal.

I wonder why he doesn't have someone else drop whatever is in the dead man's switch? I'm assuming whoever is implicated in there also knows he has it, but once it was out, how could offing him help them?

Has this whole siege/campaign to smear him and so-called fake news been so that whenever his final "leak" comes out they hope no one will believe it?

It must be REEEEAAALLLLY bad if they've hounded him for this long, on an internationally coordinated basis.

I mean all that crap on Hillary and Podesta etc, plus the CIA stuff, plus the Stratfor stuff, plus the panama papers--and nearly no attention, even less action. He must have some insane goods on some very dark people if they are this afraid of his stash.
