actually if you think about it, the planet is just a big rock flying through space. It's resources should belong to everybody.
Yet ever since you were born you (or your carers) are paying somebody else for everything then slaving away most of the best years of your life
in some shit job just to make the money for those basics.

A group of people living in a shared commune where you all work together on a piece of communal land to help each other to survive and get the basics you need for that seems like a much more natural human arrangement but we don't ever seem to have that option.

Some rich c*nt always seems to own it all and they enslave you in return for access.
If you don't accept this order then you are met with organised violence, harassment, ostracisation, homelessness, death.

The fact that we all accept this order so readily instead of questioning the loss of the commons
tells you a lot.

The natural order.
Lions might work together to kill the prey, but they do not share the prize. They try to seize as much for themselves and their cubs as possible.

Call me an optimist but I think intelligent humans could do slightly better than the savagery of might is right!

Capitalist savages apparently think otherwise and live in constant fear of a good example
and so they crush any that appear with extreme violence.

Short sighted brainwashed people think this is all just great and so have allowed this insidious ugly vicious system to propagate.

So disappointing.

This could be the reason why things like Covid are being pushed by the EU/USA in such a hurry.
It's a desperate gamble by the likes of Soros, Rothchilds.. left loonies..,IOW all those stupid fookers to try take the world before it cracks up.

All you have to do is dig your heeels in and say 'NO' (y)
I certainly think there is a lot to this. It's a controlled demolition of an economy that was already on the brink of collapse.

This is particularly good,

The end of American Hegemony

Post World War 2 political order has been characterized by the dominance of unipolar American Empire. The distinct nature of American Empire compared to empires historically lay in its unique foundations as a liberal financial empire. As long as the US – the harbinger of the values of Zionism, liberalism and its offshoots of universalism, multiculturalism, and finance capitalism – has international hegemony, the ceiling on movements of national sovereignty and tradition is hopelessly limited. The values that have created a spiritual rot across the west are in a symbiotic relationship with American hegemony, each relies on the other for its propagation.


Nationalists and traditionalists should take solace in the realization that we are witnessing the disintegration of the Empire. Let us consider the signs pointing to this hastening decline. Before Stalingrad, the Wehrmacht seemed invincible. After the brutal conflict, they achieved few significant victories to speak of. If Stalingrad is taken as our symbol of a shift in the confidence of a formerly powerful entity, what is the Stalingrad Event for America? Whatever the Stalingrad of the United States will be remembered as, and indeed what is remembered may not be the true cause, it is likely that it has already happened. Perhaps it was as recent as the surrender to the Taliban in Afghanistan after almost two decades of conflict, the embarrassing realization against imperial hubris that the most powerful military ever assembled could not achieve an ultimate victory over Afghan peasants and backwards Islamic fundamentalists. Perhaps it will be remembered as Iraq, the conflict that first seemed like a sweeping victory for the US but descended into vicious sectarian conflict far worse than anything seen before US involvement, a conflict for which the main result seems to be a victory for Iran. Iran emerged as an arch-enemy of the American empire which, with the removal of the secular despot Saddam Hussein, won a key ally for its web of Shia influence across the Middle East. While it had seemed American foreign policy machinations were drawn inexorably to the eventual destruction of the Islamic Republic of Iran, it seems doubtful the US, a country currently plagued by racial conflict and political polarization, would be able to muster the will to make war with a unified nation raised on a hatred of “The Great Satan”. Or perhaps The Empire’s last stand was Syria, where all the forces against the American project seemed to coalesce and deal a crushing blow to American imperialist ambitions in the Middle East. Not long ago, it seemed inevitable that whatever the future of Syria would be, it would exclude the Assad family. Now, the US has silently accepted defeat in this area as the new power brokers of Russia, Turkey and Iran negotiate the fate of this patch of the world without the direction of the US.


While these three defeats have thrown into question the ability of the US to impose its will on the Middle East, what of the Truman Doctrine of containment against Socialism arising south of the American Border? Just as worrying is that the Empire can no longer even exercise its will over a state like Venezuela and other Latin American countries, which have chosen their own brands of socialism over the demands made by American capital. The lesson of modern conflicts, whether Iraq or Afghanistan or Syria or Latin America, is that an occupying empire cannot maintain control over a subject population dedicated to its independence.


Though the US still (for now) far out does every other country by the size of its military, it is easy to overestimate how much that reflects the capability of the US to do what the military is there for in the first place. Across the world, the forces of anti-Americanism have become increasingly emboldened by the realization that it is possible to give The Great Satan a bloody nose – and live to tell the tale.

Seems not.

There is a hierarchy among the Lion pride that determines the eating order. They eat first. The females that are involved with the hunt are the next to eat. They will consume some of it at the site of the killing. Experts believe this eating first ritual is to ensure the leadership of the pride. If they don’t then all of them can end up lacking when it comes to getting enough food.

The cubs are often the last to eat and even they have a hierarchy among them. Sometimes males share the food with cubs and females have to wait.

Private property is an anti-natural idea. Very perverse and totally destructive.

Do you believe young Irish couples should have to pay over 300,000 euro for a very basic home? Or up to 2,000 euro per month to rent a dark one bedroom flat in Dublin? There's a difference between paying for stuff - and being sold into debt slavery.
