As for those anti-imperialists who don’t participate in this festival of xenophobia — and here I include myself — we have our own elitist consolation: we accept the tragedy of masses of gullible sheeple falling for cunning propaganda because having overcome it flatters our own intelligence. The more we condemn society’s stupidity, the smarter we feel in comparison.
This is such an interesting manuscript to read. Enjoying it so far. Thanks for the recommendation.
If you’re taking this stance then you must also take the stance that a baby with Down Syndrome would not survive on it’s own in a pre-modern, natural selectionist era. Keeping it alive, nurturing and caring for it until you die, and then having them cared for through an institution until they die is extremely unnatural. Why would you bring someone into this life if they’re doomed to suffer? That seems awful to me. I’m sure we’ll just have to agree to disagree, but I can’t see the logic in it.
Good article, but I was more intrigued by the mention of Windows 10 China Government Edition (https://www.theregister.com/2017/05/23/redmond_puts_wall_around_windows_10_for_chinese_government_addition/) Quick little read.
Maybe I’m just missing something, but what’s the problem? I’m assuming that there are staffing shortages on these days, and the managers are charging exorbitant rates to work. They’re offering, not being told/asked to work those days. Isn’t this actually a win for the working class that’s willing to work at this wage rate?
For real. It’s one of the main reasons I don’t take this site seriously.
