10. Now you see that evil will always triumph.. because good is dumb Jan 5, 2013, 22:23 Orphic Resonance
 
Federal and state authorities have chosen not to indict HSBC, the London-based bank, on charges of vast and prolonged money laundering, for fear that criminal prosecution would topple the bank and, in the process, endanger the financial system.

It doesn't take a genius to see that the reasoning here is beyond flawed. When you decide not to prosecute bankers for billion-dollar crimes connected to drug-dealing and terrorism (some of HSBC's Saudi and Bangladeshi clients had terrorist ties, according to a Senate investigation), it doesn't protect the banking system, it does exactly the opposite. It terrifies investors and depositors everywhere, leaving them with the clear impression that even the most "reputable" banks may in fact be captured institutions whose senior executives are in the employ of (this can't be repeated often enough) murderers and terrorists. Even more shocking, the Justice Department's response to learning about all of this was to do exactly the same thing that the HSBC executives did in the first place to get themselves in trouble they took money to look the other way.

And not only did they sell out to drug dealers, they sold out cheap. You'll hear bragging this week by the Obama administration that they wrested a record penalty from HSBC, but it's a joke. Some of the penalties involved will literally make you laugh out loud. This is from Breuer's announcement:

As a result of the government's investigation, HSBC has . . . "clawed back" deferred compensation bonuses given to some of its most senior U.S. anti-money laundering and compliance officers, and agreed to partially defer bonus compensation for its most senior officials during the five-year period of the deferred prosecution agreement.

Wow. So the executives who spent a decade laundering billions of dollars will have to partially defer their bonuses during the five-year deferred prosecution agreement? Are you fucking kidding me? That's the punishment?

At least the game looks cool. Seems like a Diablo-ized take on Muramasa/Odin Sphere.

at least mcdonalds food is cheap

right?

actually, raging fat asses are probably not the best people to contemplate that

the single greatest piece of wisdom i've ever come across is from plato who said that wisdom is knowing that you know nothing..

thats from socrates, mr badmf

too bad you didnt know that you didnt know this.. ironic huh?

plato was his student, but also a pretentious chump IMO... my fav was pythagoras, but diogenes is quite entertaining..

btw i doubt you've read "The Republic".. plato is a thieving asshole, much like hesiod

Plato was discoursing on his theory of ideas and, pointing to the cups on the table before him, said while there are many cups in the world, there is only one `idea' of a cup, and this cupness precedes the existence of all particular cups.

"I can see the cup on the table," interupted Diogenes, "but I can't see the `cupness'".

"That's because you have the eyes to see the cup," said Plato, "but", tapping his head with his forefinger, "you don't have the intellect with which to comprehend `cupness'."

Diogenes walked up to the table, examined a cup and, looking inside, asked, "Is it empty?"

Plato nodded.

"Where is the `emptiness' which procedes this empty cup?" asked Diogenes.

Plato allowed himself a few moments to collect his thoughts, but Diogenes reached over and, tapping Plato's head with his finger, said "I think you will find here is the `emptiness'."

Stop it. Someone is saying "there's a problem" and you're taking it as "it's your fault."

Stop making yourself a victim when someone else is. This isn't about you.

some lower forms of monkeys and so forth cant recognize themselves in a mirror

similar concept here

you cant just "talk them into it" either

i wonder how many people even know about the pen and paper game this is based on, let alone played it..

if you did, youd probably be pretty excited about this.. especially in light of witcher series

I never played the actual Cyberpunk RPG, but Shadowrun is fairly similar to it, right? (if you don't count the magical stuff from Shadowrun.)

sorta.. you cant just say its like shadowrun without the magic/fantasy stuff, because thats a main focus.. elves, orcs, shamans, all that kind of shit is what makes it shadowrun to begin with

cyberpunk was always about the nasty, dirty side of the future - it was like the writers wanted to make "neuromancer - the rpg".. tons and tons of implants and enhancements and all that - but the book art and descriptions gave it a very "gritty" feel, and playing the game with all those components inevitably gave it a certain harsh atmosphere that i found unique at the time - and even though shadowrun came out soon after, its just really not the same at all

its a great fit for CD Projekt Red.. the source material is right up their alley.. its a very adult style RPG

Perhaps you think that an average score on the Apple app store or Amazon is accurate (or reliable) because it is an average? I don't. Perhaps you have a philosophical duck for that?

its called "spin" .. as in how politicians talk
