Calling B.S. Workers have a say in how their unions are run, and without a union, workers have ZERO voice in their workplaces. All wealth is created by workers, how much of their own created wealth they are allowed to retain is dependent on how well organized they are. The plutocracy hates unions because of these simple facts.

Legislate away the profit motive. If the war profiteers can no longer make bank on it, they will stop starting wars for profit. That would end all U.S. wars at least.

Taxes are no way near 70% in Canada, and people actually get services they need from the taxes, they are not paying for imperial wars all over the world.

Do you like the idea of public funding of mass murder for private corporate profit?

Should Canada and the United States Merge? by ruperttaylor in politics

No FUCKING way. Canada has learned how to live in the world peacefully, The USA is a terrorist imperialistic state that kills innocent people on a daily basis. Canada cares for their citizens and residents enough to provide the basic human right of health care, the USA sells out its people to whichever corporation can make the most money off their suffering and death.

I have lived in both countries, and most Canadians I have met have a deservedly contemptuous view of the imperialist USA. It figures this idea was floated by some corporate whore.

Why is Prostitution still illegal? by sawboss in videos

It is still illegal for the same reason that ALL victimless crimes are illegal. So the prison industrial complex (like that self-righteous female prosecutor) can make bank at the expense of everyone else.

I don't think there is any problem re-posting from anywhere as long as it is an item of interest. As /r continues to self-destruct and collapse into their corporate cesspool of censorship, more people will seek alternatives. With more interesting content, there will be more participants, and when the participants can speak freely without fear of being summarily and arbitrarily silenced, there will be more discussion. Choice is good.

The evidence supports your statement. If the good outweighed the bad we would not be looking at the destruction of the environment on a global scale, the fastest rate of species going extinct in history, and the concentration of wealth and resources in the hands of so few. Anyone who cannot see what is going on is living in some sort of bubble that excludes reality.
