1. No one mentioned abandoning capitalism for pure socialism or communism. You're standing up straw men.

2. Unregulated capitalism has major flaws. One is that the wealth does tend to get concentrated in an elite and you end up with an oligarchy. The USA is actually trending this way currently since we've undone a lot of the protections that keep corporations from controlling government.

3. In fact, the rich are getting richer and the poor getting poorer. That's not an opinion, it's simply a fact.

4. Cutter's phrase "socialized democracy" describes a range of different first world governments, including our own. From Wikipedia: "Alternatively, social democracy is defined as a policy regime involving a universal welfare state and collective bargaining schemes within the framework of a capitalist economy." We have elements of this, such as social security, unemployment, welfare. However, over the past several decades we've undone or attempted to undo many key tenets such as unions, pensions, progressive taxation, etc. As a result, we've seen a sharp widening in the gap between rich and poor.

Not only does this threaten our democracy, but it's simply bad economics. When money ends up in the hands of the poor and middle class, they spend it. This boosts the economy through demand. When that money ends up with the rich, they do nothing with it. Even H.W. Bush called such "trickle down economics" as "voodoo" since it's nothing more than wishful thinking.

No point in trying to explain that to the dittoheads. They're all sociopaths and psychopaths with zero interest in anyone or anything but themselves. Most aren't capable of independent thought and can barely regurgitate the talking points of their corporate masters. It's the reason why all the heavily socialized democracies enjoy the best overall standards of living in the world while the US was ranked 28th several years ago - and probably isn't even in the top 30 anymore. Still, they never let the facts get in the way of a good rant about the evils of mankind trying to look out for one another and the horrors of the common good. I don't know if it's just bad genes or maybe they never watched Sesame Street and learned about sharing.

Capitalism is built on the illusion that anyone can get rich and just like the lottery the odds are always against you. One winner and millions of losers. Las Vegas is living proof of that illusion. Capitalism like communism is a failure in practice. A socialized democracy is best for the majority. Or as are good friends the Vulcans are so fond of saying, the needs of the many outweigh those of the few or the one.

Why not try that DC Moba? I hear it's more nub friendly. And their community can't be anywhere near as toxic as what you find for any game with Blizzard.

You guys are right. The final for Black Sails was awesome! Sucks we have to wait a friggin' year for next season. I hate how they schedule TV shows like that. Well at least we have a few more eps of Vikings to go and GoT otw in 2 weeks.

I wouldn't exactly call using VPN/Proxies to access a subscription service your paying monthly for piracy. It isn't exactly legal to circumvent the geoblocking but its a bit disingenuous to call it piracy.

The irony of it is that by pushing Netflix to go after VPN users they're actually pushing people from using a paying service to piracy.

It's even more hilarious when you consider that Netflix has other non_US national offerings and you are stuck to those inferior offerings DESPITE PAYING in those countries. So seems like they give customers the choice of piracy or piracy. What the hell? Did they learn nothing from the music industry?

Exactly. Most people in Canada don't bother with Netflix because why should they when they're paying more and getting a fraction of the content in the process. Yeah, that'll help stem piracy. Rolleyes

“The VPN thing is a small little asterisk compared to piracy,” Reed notes. “Piracy is really the problem around the world.”

Um, no. Piracy only stems from other major issues. It's a result of anti-consumerist policies. Treat people fairly and you won't have that problem. Hollywood, RIAA, et al. are their own worst enemies.

The difference being if you can talk away your problems than they're not really problems. May as well blow off some steam chatting up your bartender. You'll probably get more sage advice. It's why even Freud said, "Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar." If your problems stem from the fact that you have genes and your biochemistry is out of whack than you need people who can actually do something about that. That pilot, in this case, wouldn't have benefited from a just a chat with a psychologist. He needed some serious meds. And he should have never been a pilot to begin with.

Psychology is to psychiatry as astrology is to astronomy.

And in Canada pilots have to undergo a physical as well as mental health check once a year. You'd think that'd would be SOP in any position where you're putting a bunch of peoples lives in someone's hands.

That's my point, you're forced into styles of play with this system. You basically always have to sneak into battle. Your non-tanks are beyond squishy. Monks have to get hit in order to use their skills/powers? That's fucking stupid beyond belief. Almost every fight my rogue/monk/wizard get dropped. The tanks can't hold aggro. It's just bad design all around. Yet again, this shows the major problem with paid betas when its the fanboys telling the devs what they want to hear.

That link didn't work for me, Blue. It just redirects to the Canadian site where there is no video. Typical. Anyway, found it on teh Youtubes.

Bond - Spectre Trailer 2015

Yeah, this is one of the few that can drag me back into a theater to see it. Catch a Monday afternoon matinee later into its release sort of thing. Looks like it's going to be good.
