The social psychology of European culture is imperialistic. Whatever they do is going to be that way. Whether it is capitalism or communism or socialism or religion or the educational system or the green economy.

Now that is truly hilarious. How do we expect to resolve complicated scientific problems when we cannot address simple ones? Is the Empire State Building 80 years old or not?

Prison is nothing but a continuation of non-stop slavery. No more; no less. The same things that transpired on the Plantations transpires in every prison in the U.S. and elsewhere the Caucasoids are in charge; which is damn near EVERYWHERE. They're like those little blind cave fishes. Saw two white brothers taking white folks on Safaris in Africa, no less. They looked stupid as hell, and I won't be seeing that show again.

The Prison Industrial Complex Industry , and now the Treatment Industrial Complex , along with the already exixting Illness and Disease Complex Industry , are all nothing but our politicians colluding with corporations and 'money-changers' to have a way to make money off the masses at the expense of the masses, to replace all the American jobs and American production that they soldout to foreign countries and foreign interest. So, what they are doing is re-creating a Slave Plantation System...

I felt like it was about 99% right; it should have left out the "strong central government" inference, since it is Corporate America and/or it owners that are using our "strong central government", i.e., predominately republican politicians, to enact laws, rules and regulations that create corporate monopolies in the first place.

That is a reason for a National Recommended Reading List even if it has to be created by parents. I have been hearing about school reform for as long as I can remember.

There's no good guys to replace the bad guys. It's a human species wide problem: greed and heartlessness over cooperation and compassion.

Re: Major Corporations Divest nearly $60m from Private Prison Industry After Pressure from Civil Rights Group

GoodMan ·
The Prison Industry is a good industry to invest in. If a strong percentage of Black people are in prison, the best thing to do would be to encourage private prisons and Black corporations invest in it to control the prisons and provide better living conditions and work opportunity by giving them jobs in prisons and dictating what prisons should be like. This is a step backwards. Instead of trying to prevent corporations from investing, should told them what to invest in. You had their...

Corporate Slavery By Mike Schelstrate For centuries, the ruling elite worldwide have struggled with determining the optimal method of obtaining necessary labor from the lower classes at the least cost in order to increase their power and profits. In the era of European royalty, the peasants provided the labor required to maintain the economy. The peasants regularly worked until they were exhausted, were not allowed to own property, and received wages barely sufficient to feed their families.
