That's some fucked up shit, for SURE
!! I thought that unions and striking is permissible in countries run by democratic government? Or could it be that many modern societies are simply marketed as democratic while in reality...they're nothing but corporate dictatorships.
In a corporate capitalist system (like US), profit maximisation and cost (ex: labour) minimisation is almost carried out to fanatical proportions. People who try and infringe on this principle are dealt with harshly. Just like what would happen in Taliban run Afghanistan if u oppose their version of Islam
Of course, you can call Bush a nadblowing goat dick sucking ho, but ANY material and/or physical opposition to ANY angle of corporatism, which implies lowering their profits and/or increasing their costs, are dealt w/ an iron fist.
Looks like we're revisiting the dark ages, except that the tormentors aren't wearing crowns and robes, sitting in castles. They're donning swanky suits, sitting in multiplex skyscrapers.
The next thing which comes to my mind is the police infrastructure itself. Our modern, sophisticated societies seem to forget that the police is a civil body meant to carry out civic duties. In almost all modern societies today, USA included, the police is nothing but a convenience arm to the political shotcallers- who are themselfs a convenience arm to the economic elite. So the country ends up becoming a playground for...the economic elite! There is ZERO civil training that goes into the police academy. Almost ALL training is focused on conducting raids, breaking into homes, shooting firearms etc. And the personnel selection processes for many police departments in almost all modern societies are best described as dubious...
Don't get me wrong- I like money
but I am not addicted to money
. I make money to see me and my family thru- and maybe indulge in some earthly pleasures- but I don't make money as if accumulating as much of it in as short of a time as possible is a religious obligation. And I thought that the Taliban were the only fanatical elements around in modern times. Looks like lotsa modern societies are ruled by fanatics too- the only diff. being the Taliban seem to be fanatical over a philosophy whereas the shotcallers in the modern world seem to be fanatical over money.
