I am just gonna leave this link here

What if jobs are the problem, not the solution

It made me realize that computerization of large portions of jobs may not be as far fetched and far away as I thought, and imo it should be a mandatory read, and should be seen as a new experience, to look at work from an different angle, and to look at the consequence of doing so, so leave your preconceptions about how "work builds character" at the door before entering.

And remember, Asian school children dominate math, but you know what they don't dominate? Cultural development. Those making culture are not the ones acing math and science and culture is what defines a nation, not it's jobs. Shouldn't this mean that we should strife to educate children so they further our culture and society, and not our economy?

Isn't Trump winning the perfect proof? Everyone puts so much value on jobs, everyone is sad and angry they lost their jobs, instead of creating something new out of that, something that does not benefit the economy, but the society of your nation, your neighborhood even, even if it's based on "entitlements" and even if you have to sustain yourself on a slightly lower luxury level... mhh, food for thought.

I'll agree that it's time to start thinking of a new paradigm. Most people enjoy "work" in order to have some purpose and stimulation in life. Just sitting around doing nothing sucks and saps your morale, leading to drug abuse, mental illness, and other issues. And here's a nasty quote from the article:

Almost half of employed adults in this country are eligible for food stamps (most of those who are eligible donít apply). The market in labour has broken down, along with most others.

Income inequality is just STUPID. How about instituting a living minimum wage, like $20 per hour? That would cut down on the user of government services is a massive way. Walmart and places like it actually train their workers to use government services to supplement their incomes. It's corporate welfare at its most pernicious.

The sad thing (because it is politically untenable) is that it would be a HUGE boon to the economy. Poor and lower middle income people spend their money, nearly all of it. This stimulates the economy by cycling the money through it. Rich people just sock it away, often overseas. Or they invest it, but trickle down economics has been pretty much proven to fail at this point.

I guess you don't understand math or economics. Taking other people's money and giving it to someone with no expectation of them doing anything to earn it would be hugely inefficient and wasteful. They will spend it on cheetos and beer and video games. It would be much smarter to take all that money you want to take from real earners, and give it back to those who produce in the form of tax breaks. They will then take that money and build something of value that deadbeats can choose to work for.

You Bernie fools are a riot. Go to Cuba and see your shit-hole commie/socialist utopia...or Venezuela. Seriously, go to one of those awesome places that gives everything to everyone. Only problem is that when the government runs out of people producing, runs out of their money, it turns evil. But, ya know free shit and Bernie. Idiots.

Very dangerous rhetoric.

Sad!

In about two years, people might go to jail for making indirect political comments that are not in line with the president's point of view, so...

Exactly! I bet Trump will also direct the IRS to go after businesses that are conservative too! Plus, be complicit in local governments targeting conservatives with differing viewpoints. Err...wait a second...

How about you focus not on what might happen and more on what actually has happened and stop being so close-minded.

Yeah, socialized medicine sucks. You guys pay $3500 a year on average for it? Barring any major problems your insurance may not cover. You know what I pay? Nothing. You know what everyone else pays in a socialized democracy? Nothing. Oh sure, it comes out of our taxes, but we choose to spend in on important shit like that. It would be funny if it wasn't so sad how right-wing extremists like you guys think something like socialized medicine is pure evil at several billion a year, but wasting a trillion dollars a year - still socialism - on the military industrial complex is just fine. Christ, you clowns don't know whether you're coming or going.

"Oh sure, it comes out of our taxes"

I don't think free means what you think it means.

Socialized medicine bad? Military-industrial-complex and corporate tax breaks good? Your stupidity is painful. I mean, actually literally painful. If there was an IQ quotient to voting we'd never see another conservative politician in office ever again. Quite honestly I'm flabbergasted that you and your ilk even know how to use a computer.

Sorry, I couldn't help myself.

A closer analogy would be a Hillary presidency. I forgive your partisan viewpoint as you must be one of Hill's uninformed and complacent sheep.

People seem to forget that Trump and his followers are now the revolutionaries. It isn't 1968 people. Republicans, Trump, anyone who doesn't tow the liberal party line are now anarchists, counter-culture, outside the main stream. It is Hillary who must crush that dissent and have her followers inform on it.

Do you just not play it cos the character you play as in charge of your own mafia is black?

Well ya said it , why does everything today have to be black or gay or free breast , just ain't into all this politically correctnes it ruins more than it helps Clown Nothing helps if ya force it onto people....nothing!

Playing a black guy in this context is very interesting. What I hate is the disclaimer at the start of the game, apologizing to nutjobs like all Black Lives Matter followers and SJW.

Imagine a history teacher apologizing for talking about slavery back in the days.

It seemed like a well worded disclaimer to me. Of course it triggered someone.

If it didn't upset someone who would say "nutjobs like all Black Lives Matter followers", it's doing history wrong.

Anyone who thinks that a player's character not being a straight white male is automatically political correctness is exactly the sort of person who would benefit as a human being exposed to more diversity.

The latter part is not what I'm saying. Read my post more clearly. As for BLM, I can understand it feels good to just hop on that boat and chant "black lives matter" along with its other members... since -- fuck me -- OF COURSE black lives matter. All human life matters. If you don't understand my disdain for BLM than that's solely due to your ignorance, so don't go all ad hominem on me. My problem with BLM is that it creates racism instead of fighting it. Have you heard any BLM spokesperson talk about the white people that get shot by police, for example? Of course they don't, because then they have to come with numbers which would completely destroy the movement.

Numbers like: 6% of the US citizens are black, 50% of the US murders are by blacks, and then most of them are black-on-black crime.
Or numbers like: 50% of the people that get shot by police are white.

Fuck BLM. It's a movement against equality.

BLM...lmfao. This site is great: http://heyjackass.com/

It shows just how much black lives matter. No one cares about blacks being killed in the black community. That is the tragic truth to all of this. Racists are focused on the <1% of deaths in their community instead of doing just a *little* bit more to reduce 80% of the rest.

Why is that? Is it stupidity? Fear? Cultural acceptance of violence as a means to money? No one cares about all the people being murdered in Chicago. No one. Not even BLM. Fascinating.

As for the game, it'll be a good sale pickup when patched.

And even if it didn't, so what? We get a cleaner, nicer planet to live on? Oh the horror of that! Gee, why would the deniers/industry shills be opposed to that?

No, what I'm opposed to are crook governments and swindler businesses blaming 'man' and using it to exert control and fleece us. So, ok, I get you drink the coolaid but FFS a majority of people don't believe in that shit enough to pay to fix it.

Why make nice things that push boundaries of size and performance to challenge the competition and sell shit to rich people, or high-tech businesses that can make use of cutting edge technology for an advantage?

Young people can't comprehend what you are saying. Their indoctrinated Bernie-Socialist-Entitled minds read 'advantage' as racist/sexist/homophobic or whatever they use now to explain away their own failures.

It had absolutely nothing to do with "ghostbusters".

This dickless wonder was banned for leading a mob of hate-filled assholes to attack someone on the internet. Yeah, kudos to him for raising the awareness that bigots and racists still exist in this world.

There is no place in society for people like him, or people who agree with the things he does. These cowards have absolutely no clue what the first amendment is or what it protects. He certainly doesn't deserve any "praise" and I can't actually believe someone did just that.

The blanket dismissal of BLM/feminists/etc is really driving home the point of who you are as a person though. How'd you slip through that filter?

Obama repeatedly and wrongly incited racial division (as did his wife), and helped fuel the destruction at Ferguson and the cop killings that followed (by sending the DOJ investigators to mess with an open-and-shut case). Hillary Clinton continues doing that in her speeches as we speak, blaming the victim as police officers keep getting killed.

All 3 are racists, who are exploiting racial division to detract from the horrible things they've done while in office. Eric Holder aided and abetted them on this.

Right now Hillary is fanning these flames simply to distract from gigantic corruption scandal that's erupting around her and has forever tainted the reputation of FBI.

None of them are banned from Twitter.

I am sure there are plenty of BLM activists literally calling for death of police, who are not banned from Twitter, either. Nor are millions of Muslims who want homosexuals dead.

But a man who speaks the truth about what's going on, speaks it directly, is considered a danger to society.

I grew up in Soviet Union, back when it was still the Soviet Union. We had a government-controlled news media. With exception of Fox News, Drudge, and a scattering of smaller Internet sources, America has the same problem.

I find it absolutely frightening and disgusting that a person like Milo, who has never incited racial hatred in his life, is considered more dangerous than those who do. That a person like Milo, who encourages gay people to be aware of what's really going on in the Muslim community (and this is supported by data), encourages gays to carry guns to protect themselves, is considered a "bigot".

That him pointing out the statistical truth about "rape culture", makes him "hateful". According to the Left, a college campus has 1 in 5 women raped, which makes it more dangerous than the congo.

We live in the medieval ages again. The word "heretic" has been replaced by the words "bigot" and "racist". The Church Of Political Correctness has successfully eliminated factual thinking, instead we have millions of hysterical troglodytes, easily triggered by the programmed words.

The education system has successfully eliminated any critical thinking, instead pandering to the easily exploitable wish to be "special" that young people have.

I remember how that works. We are the new generation, the better one. The "progressives". Screw all those old, spiderweb-draped people and all the old stuff that happened, history means nothing. We are simply better, you see, and we know what's right.

As a Soviet Pioneer who wore a red tie, much like kids still do in China today, I very much remember how we were brainwashed. When USSR fell and I started learning the truth about the world, I had a breakdown.

The "Two Minutes Hate" against America has done a beautiful job. Whenever I turn, I see people dissing Trump and his wife, who are hard-working people of so much higher caliber than forever-race-baiting Obama and "For the first time I am proud of my country" Michelle.

It is nauseating and frightening to see the totalitarian grip squeeze the country around me again. I find this not merely offensive, but downright tragic.

This time, I can feel it as it happens. And all of you ObamaJugend do not, because you're me circa 1991.

Trump is the only hope America has. Milo knows that Trump is actually the most gay-friendly President we'd have in a while, because Trump is interested in controlling and suppressing the kind of "folks" that go into a gay bar in Orlando and kill people.

If our border enforcement laws don't get actually enforced, Europe demonstrates the future of America. The unrecognizeable London. The terrorist-riddled France.

All of this was predictable, mind you. In Pew surveys, France had one of the highest percentages of Muslims who said that Violent Jihad is an acceptable form of protest against those who "offend Islam". A pretty vague qualifier, don't you think. France had about 35% of Muslim population admit to this, America had around 20%.

Pretty much everything Milo says, is mostly true. Truth delivered with the bluntness of a hammer which is meant to break through some people's "Democratic" stupor. Not to see "Republican" values. Both parties are corrupt to the core. But to see Libertarian/Conservative values.

Being a conservative in San Francisco, where I live, is almost dangerous. I know if I put a Trump sticker on my car, someone will vandalize it. The real hate speech (against Trump) is afoot. I've seen the looks people give when they hear me listening to conservative talk radio. Someone in my martial arts school, an innocuous looking nice woman, said "Surely I hope someone will assassinate Trump before he becomes President".

Truth has become illegal in many parts of the country. Political correctness has disabled the self-preservation instincts and common sense in millions of people, who feed on media-filtered soundbytes.

Isn't it amazing that Trump gets more hate in the media than any of the cop killers and gay-club-shooters combined?

Meanwhile, a man who sic'd the IRS, East-Germany-style, on conservatives, in order to win re-election, is making jokes on Jimmy Fallon?

The man who was going to let 40 Americans die in Benghazi because it would expose his hypocrisy with his recent statement about Al Qaeda being "on the run"? Anything for re-election.

The corrupt politician who evaded Freedom Of Information Act by storing top-secret Emails on a homemade server, the woman who erased 30000 Emails while turning in evidence, is getting less hate in the press than a hard-working businessman and his family.

Ain't that strange?

America has been taken for granted. But this young country is the beacon of light in the world. If Trump does not win, people like Milo will be suppressed for good, and forced to go underground. We will become just another totalitarian shithole, and the world will go dark forever.
